Day 4- the final day.- Living on Grapes, Bananas, Mangos and Apples

I must admit that, this journey was not easy at all. I’ll be ending this journey this evening or let me say, in two hours time.
Reasons best known to me and my coach,  Mavis Manns.  I hope to intensify this cleansing another time with the help of Mavis, who will join me on the next journey.  Let me know if you want to join us on this journey.  My cleansing process will end with Grapes, Bananas, Mangos and Apples.  I feel weak. Grateful to God for guiding me through. 

Day 3 – How I lived on Mangos and Pawpaw.

When the going gets tough, only the tough gets going. Yesterday was a good day for me but ended badly.
In short,  I almost collapsed in the evening after living on Mangos and Pawpaw.  I was energetic in the morning and afternoon. But almost lost it in the evening.  My session with my coach revealed that, I could do better with this cleansing when I take the appropriate measures. She, Mavis Manns then gavr me some schedules I could use next time for a more thorough and deeper cleansing. Check my Facebook page for the schedule :

Day 2 – Living on Mangos and Bananas

Today the 3rd day of my cleansing process and as I sit at the back of the car, holding my a bottle of water in my hands and head to work at 5:30 am, I want to shortly recap my Day 2 of the journey. 
Lessons from Day one made be start my Day 2 with a bottle of water and Mango. Later when I got to work,  I took some bananas and then work began.
Unlike Day one when I felt severe headache in the late afternoon,  Day 2 was ironically far better and I guess my body was getting used to it.
As usual,  my coach Mavis Manns was there to check on me. She advised I put lime (although acidic) in my water so that it could wash down the toxins or waste. Others advised I watch my fruits intake because too much of the same fruits could create more waste in my body.
So with all that in mind, I’m living on Watermelons, bananas,  Coconut,  mangos and pawpaw today (Day 3).

7 days journey of cleansing- Living on fruits and water

The objective of my seven day journey of no food and just water and fruits is to cleanse my body of all toxins, to clear my mind of all bad and negative thoughts and to cleanse my soul through meditation and prayer.
This is the initial stage to my new wellness mentality.
On the first day of this journey,  I lived on Bananas and Pineapple.  When I got to work on Monday the 10th,  I decided to take some fruits for breakfast and picked the wrong fruit – pineapple.  Or let me say,  Eating the right fruit at the wrong time. As advised by my coach,  Mavis Manns,  eating pineapple is bad for this journey because it is acidic and drains you faster. Unknowingly, I ate that in the morning and then the day started. During lunch I ate banana and kept drinking water along side the fruits.  By 4pm, my head started aching so hard and I couldn’t think straight.   It ached till I got home at 8pm and then I slept. In short, Day 1 was not easy, I’ve learnt my lessons and hope to see what day 2 goes like.

The Wisdom of Abandonment

Wise men and women are great-souled individuals who begrudge nothing to God. They’re not looking for the quickest Mass to fulfill their Sunday obligation. Rather, they consider it a privilege to worship the Lord as long as possible. Wise men and women don’t ask if they have to go to Confession annually, but they rejoice in celebrating frequently the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Wise men and women consider it a privilege to share their faith in Jesus, especially in situations where they may be persecuted (see Acts 5:41; 13:52). Wisdom is not doing the minimum but always searching for new opportunities to abandon ourselves to the love and will of God. Wise men and women transcend their natural inclinations to selfishness, laziness, and fear. They live supernaturally — by grace and by faith.

The Lord wants to make you a wise man or woman. Are you willing to become wise, to follow the star, to give all to Jesus?

“What I learned in 2013″ by Dr. Marcus Manns

In his own words: 

Hello Friends, Family, Team & Colleagues,

First off, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and your family from me and my family!

I woke up early this morning, and I was thinking of a special note to share with each of you.


Dr. Marcus Manns
Founder and CEO
Chiropractic and Wellness Centres

As I was sitting in front of my computer with a clean document, I wanted to highlight a few of the most important lessons I learned during 2013, because I believe this is the perfect message I could share with you at this time.

With each lesson, I am also going to share a quote that reinforces what I have learned, because I know it will inspire you and help you recognize the value associated with each concept.

Here you go:

1.) Believe in yourself- “Believe in yourself, for it is only you who can determine whether or not you are the achiever of your dreams.” – Kishore Bansal

This is probably the most important lesson I learned this year, because when you truly believe that you are capable of everything and anything, nothing will stop you. The first and only person you need to convince is YOURSELF, so go out there and BELIEVE!

2.) Let the small things be small things- “What a caterpillar calls the end of the world we call a butterfly.”! Eckhart Tolle

What I have learned is that the challenges we face seem enormous in the NOW, but, when we look back, these are specks of dust in our existence. The key to make 2014 your best year yet is to allow these specks of dust to remain SMALL (even in the NOW), so our energy is no longer focused on areas that do not matter.

3.) Flock with Birds that Build You Up- Be careful the environment you choose for it will shape you; be careful the friends you choose for you will become like them. – W. Clement Stone

This an essential lesson to adopt (immediately) to make 2014 filled with SUCCESS, because this is what you deserve. The people you associate with will often become major influencers in your life even if you don’t want them to occupy this space. Therefore, please choose wisely! Find people who build you up, are passionate about life, and are driven to grow in all areas. Position people around you that help you magnify your growth and opportunities and minimizes your problems. If you wish to substantially grow by 10x, this will be enormously valuable in the coming year.

4.) Invest time, money, and effort in YOURSELF- “Our personal power is found in the force of our thoughts? It is our real strength.”- Robin Sieger

The only sustainable competitive advantage in life is personal development…PERIOD! I encourage you to allocate money/time and invest in yourself every month. This means your health, your headspace (attitude), your spirituality, your family, your relationships, etc. It does not need to cost much (if anything), but you should at least be reading a book that helps you grow, watching inspiring YOUTUBE videos, and addressing any areas where you yearn to improve.

5.) Pursue Daily Passion- “Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.” – Oprah Winfrey

Most people go through the motions for their ENTIRE LIFE. What could be worse than this? I get it, maybe you despise your career and it represents a means to an end, but it is critical that you create the space to pursue your passion for at least 15-30 minutes each day. Whether this is reading, writing, cooking, dancing, running, meditating, sewing, etc. please, please, please incorporate this into your DAILY regimen.

6.) Create the Space for Laughter- “I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.” – Audrey Hepburn

This has been such an instrumental lesson and something I am committed to including as a new rhythm. Whether I am searching YouTube for funny videos, having hilarious conversations with my family, friends, and team, or simply reflecting on events from my past; I have now incorporated laughter on a daily basis. Trust me when I say, it has made ALL the difference!

By the Way- I hope you will help and contribute good humor and laughter to my life this year too.

7.) Act with intention OR don’t act at all- “Live with intention, Walk to the edge, Listen Hard, Practice wellness, Play with abandon, Laugh, Choose with no regret, Appreciate your friends, Continue to learn, Do what you love, Live as if this is all there is.” – Mary Anne Radmacher

I often find that people perform a TON of actions in their lives, but often do so without a clearly defined intention. The perfect question you should ask yourself before ‘taking action’ is, “What am I looking to achieve?” If the answer is undesirable OR does not elicit the outcome you were striving to accomplish, then DON’T TAKE THE ACTION! This has saved me an enormous amount of time and energy in 2013 and I know it will benefit you as well.

I hope you enjoy these 7 Lessons as much (or even MORE) than I have, and I am excited to help you make 2014 your best and most successful year yet.

As you begin making these transformations, please keep me in the loop, because it is my honor to support you!

Okay, go enjoy the rest of your holiday, have fun with the people you care about most, and end the year STRONG!

Thank you for everything.
