The 21-Day Consciousness Cleanse challenges you to let go of the past, live the present, and discover the future in 21 days. Ford takes the reader through a systematic spiritual awakening over 21 days, and challenges the reader to face the past and let go of all those memories, beliefs and interpretations that are holding you back from living your best life. Her process is simple and easy to follow, but the results are powerful if you allow yourself to raise your level of consciousness. She encourages you to not be afraid to have some fun and write some new rules for your life as you move forward. I was deeply impact by a powerful statement she makes: "Life truly is an amazing dance between the inner and the outer -- a journey of your human needs and soul desires. You need the outer experience so that you will learn, grow, and evolve. But if you just go after the outer without tending to the inner, you end up empty and painfully disappointed. And if you just retreat to the inner world -- unless you're a monk or happen to be a saint -- you will likely experience isolation, loneliness, and lack. The powerful truth is that you are a child of the universe, a molecule of the divine spirit that orchestrates your greatest experience. And for you to truly experience a life of complete satisfaction, joy, and endless gratitude, you must accept that you are part of a much bigger game -- a game in which if you win, I win. And if I win, you win. A game in which if I lose, you lose. And if you lose, I lose." For many of us, it is easy to tend to your outer needs and forget that you have a beautiful inner spirit that needs equal nurturing. I found myself wondering, what if in the game of life it didn't matter who won or lost, but we simply played the game for the pure JOY of it.
