Hi Everyone! My name is Savrah. I’ve been eating just about 100% raw since mid April 2007. It happened pretty suddenly, and really organically. It’s kind of a long story, and here is the abbreviated version:
Last March, I spontaneously lost most of the vision in my left eye. It turned out to be this condition called Optic Neuritis, (an inflammation of the optic nerve). The doctors also concluded that there were some little white lesions in my brain, that led them to the conclusion that I had a 50% chance of having some other “flare up”, and being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis over the next year.
I realized quickly that all of this was mainly a result of STRESS- not stress in my daily actions, like the fact that I was super busy- which I was- but stress in my way of being in the world- like I had to be perfect, and to try really hard to control everything, everyone, and all of life- yikes!
Instead of taking the doctor recommended meds, I decided to change everything about the way I was being. I started seeing all kinds of alternative healers. And mostly, I slooooowed down.
I read a book about a guy who went raw and alleviated all of his ms symptoms and hiked the Appalachian Trail. I thought he was crazy for going raw.
I lead some people on a spring cleanse, during which i was eating fruits and vegetables. When we came out of the cleanse, I kept checking in with my intuition around what to eat next. For some reason, I just didn’t want cooked food. I listened to what my body was saying, and I’ve been just about 100% raw since then. ( i ate a couple grilled cheese sandwiches and some bacon at Burning Man- it just felt right at the time, and I have no regrets).
How things are now- is AMAZING! I’ve had lots of cool physical transformations. Even more incredible though, is the spiritual transformation. I feel joy and happiness all the time now. I get it that we are one, that you and I are the same, and that we are the divine.
I have no idea what is coming next. I do know that whatever I choose it to be, will be. I have become really connected to the practice of manifesting what I want in the world. This practice is magical and fun!
I love connecting with people, and lately I’m most excited to connect with other folks on a similar vibration. I went to the Raw Spirit Festival in Sedona and…WOW! It pretty much blew my mind- so much love, support, people coming together to hold each other in the highest light. I’m pretty sure this is what being alive is all about.
YAY love and light! Savrah :)
