How to Handle Raw Emotions

Knowing how to handle emotional intensity when going or trying to stay raw is one of the most important skills you will ever have to master on your raw food journey.

The reason being, because as you lighten up your diet, anything that does not serve you physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually will come up for healing, transforming and/or releasing. This happens because the human being is wired for an amazing level of health and wellbeing on all levels, and anything that does not serve it, it will let go of once it is given something to displace it with that is of a higher nature.

Physically this phenomenon shows up as a surge in energy followed by a sometimes uncomfortable detox. Mentally this shows up as confusion and identity issues followed by a new level of clarity and awareness. Emotionally this manifests as unprecedented levels of natural unfathomable happiness, alternated with feelings of emotional overwhelm, turbulence and crisis. And spiritually this shows up as asking bigger questions, feeling more at one with yourself and life itself, and ultimately an experience of all pervasive peace and contentedness – and even bliss.
