Am currently on a cleanse till Solstice, the 21st of December :) I am so glad i took this cleanse on. It's hard to explain the changes internally, simply put the body is lighter and i'm more peaceful, connected, happier and less reactive!
Am eating vegetables, simple brown spelt bread, vegan cheese, raw nuts and drinking lots of water, super greens and herbal tea. Following this cleanse friendly diet! I am aiming for as much organic as possible and local when I can get it. Although I used to, I am no longer consuming goats cheese. I used to and it was fine, just doesn't feel desirable anymore, as my diet has turned naturally toward vegan.
This is just a two week cleanse. I am using the Terminator Zapper as well as food grade hydrogen peroxide to help~see video for more on this.
Traditionally I take the Dr Hulda Clark parasite cleanse, but this time changed my approach as I am experimenting with using the Terminator Zapper at night time which I only rarely used at night time in the past, so far it has me waking up quite energised, i'll keep you posted!
I find it so interesting that it always looks like a phsycial cleanse, i.e. less food, only healthy food and detoxing, but on my journey it turns quite quickly into an emotional, mental and spiritual shift...for the better. A letting go and upgrade occurs and I am so grateful for this. I am feeling greater peace, energy, happiness, acceptance and connection within a week~ happy camper here!
So if you ever feel like you really want to change things for the better, I highly reccomend a cleanse. As always, check with your doctor if you are on medication, unsure etc.
Cleansing regularly, that is once to twice a year also really pays off as the benefits add up too! Of course things will happen, but ongoing self care and a 2-4 week cleanse 1-2 times a years will do you the world of good in the process. A peaceful mind is a happy mind. A healthier body is your gift to yourself and to this world. I'd rather a few challenges with light at the end that a half asleep life with no challenges, what i'm saying here is that the effort is way more than worth it. Plus we now have great support groups to help motivate. I am running a support group on facebook with Anneliese Keuglar during this cleanse, called the North South Detox, as Anneliese is in NZ and I in Ireland :) Here we hold regular live calls sharing meditation, kundalini yoga, insights into our practises, food, listneing to your sharings etc. You are welcome to join this or drop me a note if you'd like to be notified in April when we run our next joint venture.
If you are reading and thinking that you might like a cleanse sooner, I'll be conencting with an other cleanse group in Janauary, where you can purchase online your own support products, all healthy and natural of course and journey with a fellow group doing the same. The option here is for a 10 day or 40 day cleanse. Which would you rather? Remember 1 day is always better than none and 10 days definitely better than none. If you are looking for a proper boost, 10 days might work, but if you are looking for a propoer turnaround, 40 days is your gig :) Please get in contact if you'd like more info.
Love and warmest wishes,
What is a cleanse you might ask!?
Well what I am referring to is a (gasp!) parasite cleanse! You bet, a clear out of the body of unwated invaders who rob you of energy and depress the immune system.
What are the symptoms of having parasites!?
Some people feel them inside crawling around!
Some people see them in the toilet! I know-
But did you know that most are microscopic so can't be seen?
And what is an infection such as a cold or flu but a bacteria or virus living off your energy! (The cheek of them!)
No matter what my health I aim to do two cleanses yearly with one being a 'strict cleanse!'
For I, this means taking cleansing herbs and eating a pure diet that is free of sugar, honey, fruit, wheat, dairy, fresh mushroom, yeast, white rice and white potatoes!
This is a cleanse for the body, mind and spirit.
Changes will happen when you do this. Every time I cleanse something majorly positive happens! I am delightfully watching around me for good things these days!
Of course it's work, and takes discipline, that is part of the cleanse. But wow it is worth it and what a gift to yourself.
When you see how much better a car works that gets serviced each year you'll also feel more inclined to give yourself a service yearly and encourage those you love to do the same!
What happens on a cleanse?
Well expect some angst, as you move through the sugar/ coffee addiction - sorry did I mention, no wine or caffeine either- but imagine how proud of yourself you'll feel!
Your skin will start glowing with health, become clearer and even though you can eat as much as you like, the weight tends to fall off too! One of my current clients has lost 10 kilos in the past 3 week and reports that she looks 10 years younger! Not bad at all. The digestive system needs to move daily as you rid your body of die-off and old matter- a really good thing to do! I noticed this year that I had (another gasp!) a layer of fat over my tummy! Well that disappeared too! (applause!)
Last night I dreamt of a a parasite in my body being killed! Boom and gone- well maybe I did have one and not know, but hey according to me dream it's gone!
What I'd like to do is share with you this as an option to not just regain health but to also super boost yourself. You deserve it! Every year we can actually get better and better! Don't take on the aging story and instead choose to become more and more your optimal, true and happy self. It sure is more of a journey than destination but is a lovely journey with many feel good stop off view points along the way.It feels so amazing to be going a feel-good direction!
It helps if you have your partner/ family join you on it (within reason) though is not necessary. Imagine how proud you would all feel of yourselves!
My friend, Rafael who is staying with me at the moment joined me, together we shopped, made tasty healthy meals, juices and supported each other. That support was priceless!

I understand this may not be for everyone and the herbs are not advised to be taken when pregnant or lactating - but if this does call you - maybe now is the time!? The benefits can be so wonderful.
Hey and if you send me an email, I'll happily also send you my cleanse booklet with a list of foods you can eat with meal and snack ideas!
Bon Appetito Amigos!
One more thing, a cleanse is also a wonderful time for reflection. As the cravings go, more space opens up. Allow yourself daily or as often as possible to sit and look at highs, lows and whatever comes to mind. Declutter, reflect and enjoy this space. Wishing you every happiness and every success.
March 20th 2016 Equinox!
I woke up this morning with a feeling of delight. As someone who loves that feeling, it was and always is especially welcome. A smile on a dial I hoped out of bed. 5 hours sleep must be enough for today because I feel wide awake and alert!
I lit the fire I had prepared with fallen twigs from the surrounding trees the night before. A few hours later just before my run I lay down on my bed for 5 minutes. This is something I love but rarely do! 3 hours later or so I woke up! The trip I’d been planning on making to Dublin among other things no longer possible, but I knew it was fine and needed to happen and so I let go and got on with it. I retired back to the fire where I watched a bit of a movie and then felt massively drawn to go outside to the beach at the lake where I live. The sun was out about an hour before setting and the sky was true blue. A beautiful evening. To my surprise there were two people talking exactly in the place I had felt drawn to. Being a small local community here I knew both of them with one of them even being a guest at my house! Talk about small world!
I joined them and sat down on the dry pebble ground. One headed off and silence arose. Beautiful silence. A photographer who had found this heavenly location further down the lake bank sat also in silenc, all three of us listening to the birds taking in and being part of this vision. I once said to a friend that I didn’t know what to do when faced with something really beautiful, he said to enjoy it is our job and is enough! I am now a great enjoyer of good things and it wonderful.
I didn’t touch my phone during the grand show of the sunset so these are from after sunset and earlier in the day too. I’m really glad life can be so beautiful and amaze us time and time again. ‘That is the most beautiful view I’ve ever seen,’ I said more than a few times this week. So glad the divine blows the mind with beauty amid what has been a challenging time for many and a time of change for all.
I too have been growing and moving into a more balanced approach to living- quite fitting for the equinox where we are experiencing equal hours of night and day. Have you been calling out for more balance in your life? Can you see it coming into play?
I’ve been a bit whacked needing a bit more sleep these past few days too. An energetic person who often goes without sleep I am delighted to be able to enjoy some rest. New times are presenting themselves. If you feel the call within, please listen, whether it be to rest or bring more balance into your life for greater harmony and happiness.
I hope this finds you well and blesses the dreams and projects you are soulfully passionate about with extra divine energy. I alsopray that any shadow parts or unpleasant aspects receive the blessings of understanding/ forgiveness/ compassion and acceptance. We are evolving. May we relax into the place where everything is okay and working out for us. This is a powerful year and for many an intense time. This is a reminder to:
- Rest as you need it.
- Be conscious of the thoughts, words and actions that move through you. Use a go to mantra such as ‘I am feeling peace’ to direct the rambling mind and reconnect to the heart.
- Clear your space. Start with one drawer or cabinet, whereever appeals to you the most. Over the next few weeks keep going to include the bedroom, living room, kitchen and beyond inclduing car and garden. Clear one little space at a time for new things are coming and it is time to make space for them.
Wishing you peace, love, clarity and courage, Orla
Hi, I hope you are well. I am out and about in the beautiful Irish countryside this week having a break and doing a bit of writing as well as meeting wonderful people. I spent a truly special weekend at the Irish Permaculture Gathering and met so many great souls! I have visited CloughJordan and enjoyed a tour of the lovely ecovillage and am now officially galavanting :)
Here is a video taken two weeks ago when I was on day 23 of the current parasite cleanse (available from this website).
There is a link to this in a previous post, but just in case you missed it am including it again. Am now on day 37 and taking just a weekly maintenance dose. I've also began to have a little fruit (quarter of a banana or a few berries) and honey here and there. I am feeling great. energy is wonderful, mind is clear and happy. Will update with another vid soon. I wish you peaceful breathing and I wish you well x
