Day 1- Get Ready — “2020MasterCleanse”

I just found this timely blog that I wrote almost 8 years ago … It’s fascinating to tap into what feels like a simultaneous reality. As an aside, a 2020 Ageless Vitality Cleanse IS coming, but as of this moment, I have NOT decided on a date.

If you are interested in participating and feel you would benefit from my personal support, send me a note at and I will be happy to keep you in the loop. Stay tuned…

I will be posting every day or so as we move forward to our 10 Days to Ageless Vitality & Total Body Awareness Virtual Retreat…Day One starts […]

What Does It Take to Gear Up Mentally For A 10-Day Master Cleanse?


Resolve and fortitude are essential qualities necessary to overcome diversions of social gatherings, work schedules and just plain resistance  in breaking out of our  3-meal-a-day obsession.

So much of our interactions, relationships, entertainment and holidays focus on food. Such behavior makes a decision to ingest primarily a singular magic-elixir formula for a full 10 days, and cope with justified expectations of setbacks and discomfort physically and mentally along the way, are unnecessary considerations for most folks to even consider.

So why on earth, have I set this ahhhsome goal for myself more than 20 times the last five years— since January 2011? Let’s see if I can explain it . . .

For the most part, I love, love, love how I feel physically, mentally, and spiritually from day one. Sometimes I can get a bit cranky but on the very first morning when I awake on Day 1, I feel better. I’ve already begun an elimination process by drinking a cup of warm Smooth Move, herbal laxative tea the night before. Generally it’s a Sunday night. If I can tie it into a special lunar event of some kind “all’s the better.”

Generally, I’ve watched my self as I begin to spin a bit out-of-control primarily in areas relative to carbohydrates like bread, pasta, chips, ice cream/yogurt, wine, etc. Dairy cravings are generally a good indicator for me. Prior to that, I’m basically excellent at resisting and substituting tasty alternatives (including vegan alternatives to dairy) for longer and longer periods of time after a Master Cleanse. What I notice is that sooner or later I begin to stray and begin eating and snacking on foods that don’t support feelings of vitality. When I first begin to get a sense that it’s happening, I also witness rising numbers on digital bathroom scale first thing in the morning. When I start seeing numbers that feels like a threshold, my serious consideration of my next cleanse, begins.

To be transparent I’m feeling that NOW, so GET READY FOR MY UPCOMING AUTUMN CLEANSE.

You are welcome to join me. Let me know in a comment below, okay? I haven’t fully integrated my AVMC group into this site yet, but want you to still be able to get the support you need.

In fact, I’m considering a brief one NEXT WEEK before my upcoming 4 Day New Paradigm Shift event in Berkeley, and a longer one right after for the Autumn Equinox.

I choose the Master Cleanse because it’s the simplest, most efficient and most affordable system that I’ve found for a total body – mind RESET. It’s also minimally invasive physically, and mentally, probably because it’s also so wonderful spiritually and deciding on what foods to purchase prepare and eat consume a huge part of our day. Time slows down on the Master Cleanse. Mindfulness is a given.

I’ve named my version of the program Ageless Vitality Master Cleanse because that’s how it feels to me. I feel more flexible and youthful as time goes on. Each cleanse goes deeper and offers new epiphanies. It is my joy to empower others to have a similar experience of success and a rise in their self esteem, for those truly committed, to complete a full 10 days with a 3-4 day ease off. That is a successful Ageless Vitality Master Cleanse.

Experimenting with new foods and recipes and feeling on top of one’s game is a glorious reward once we get back into eating. It is essential to have a plan. I’ve done it with and without and a plan is a good thing. 10 Days, well actually 13-16 days goes by a heck of a faster than you would imagine… so having a plan of action in place is ideal.

Success Mindset for a 10-Day Master Cleanse


I’m in no hurry to rush the seasons; in fact, summer’s only slightly more than a week old… but, as a waxing gibbous (almost full) Sagittarius moon will soon be full, it’s an ideal time to celebrate manifesting initial stages in transferring archival blogs to a brand new website. Thanks for growing with me on this ever-evolving journey . . .

~ Welcome to ~

There is NO success without the correct mindset.

Whether we have studied Abraham-Hicks, watched The Secret, read Napolean Hill, listened to any number of motivational or inspirational teachers or read the bible, most people are pretty much aware of the phase “As a man [Woman] thinketh, so he is.”*

Today is one of a most glorious day in the Bay Area, better than this entire summer…a wonderful segue into autumn. It’s true, fall offers our best days of “summer” weather here in the San Francisco Bay area, especially along the coast.

So, after a wonderful yoga class, and hunting down organic lemons at Paradise Market (note to self: finding organic lemons is no small feat this time of the year), I decided to stretch my legs before sitting down at my laptop to work.

As I walked along the along the scenic bay trail at Blackie’s Pasture, in Tiburon, deeply breathing fresh bay air, luxuriating in the warmth of gentle sunshine and appreciating magnificent views, I thought about some of the remarks I have been hearing from friends the last few days regarding their inability to even conceive of doing a Master Cleanse.

At the time, I was feeling a bit hungry yet considering how satisfying it is to consume nutrients that are simple, satisfying and detoxing, and only take a minimal expenditure of energy. It was wonderful not having to think about what I wanted to eat, and then shopping for whatever that might be—generally tasty and nutritious, though not necessarily out-of-this-world delicious—then preparing it and all too often feeling sluggish or tired afterwards. Or maybe something I would eat on the way to an activity—eating too fast, as a result or even while I’m doing something else, like being on my computer or watching TV.

What I realized, is that my focus while I”m on a Master Cleanse, is totally different than when I’m eating as I would normally. But, once my mind and intention are clear in committing to do a Cleanse on such and such date, it really becomes relatively easy. And, day-to-day results I experience — and feel—almost every step of the way, make it even more rewarding

Like Walking on Fire

The “almost” reminds me of walking on fire with Tony Robbins, which I did in 1987 at the Marriott Hotel at LAX. I remember while walking on top of hot coals, I didn’t feel the heat at all, until I dropped my focus for just a split second. Doing the Master Cleanse is sometimes like that… I never thought of it like that ’til this very minute. Generally I put all my focus on where I’m going for the next 10-days, watching inches whittling away, belts fitting again, eliminating puffiness, increasing flexibility and strength, feeling fit and rejuvenated… the rewards of my commitment and doing the program step-by-step, day-by-day.

Today, by the way, is Day 8 on this go around of the Cleanse. My weight loss has tapered off a bit, which is not surprising. In fact, after an astonishing 8-pound weight loss in the first 5 or 6 days, then another half pound, it makes sense. Nonetheless, I am seeing a shift in that weight: a chiseling of my features and a toning of my body, along with added strength and flexibility from eliminating stored deposits of toxins… nice.

How Beyoncé Lost 20 Pounds in Two Weeks

WARNING: I was just reading how Beyoncé lost 20 pounds in two weeks, though she DID eat along the way! That always baffles me. The Master Cleanse is a specific formulation, anything else is an adaptation… AND, of course, because she really didn’t change her habits, she gained it all back.

“For things to change I’VE got to change.”

I know that’s the case. We all do. If I go back to eating how I did before a cleanse, there’s a very good possibility I’m going to gain it back and, in fact, I’ve experienced doing just that . . .though it generally takes awhile.

The truth is, that’s the way it is ALWAYS. If you go back to doing whatever you were doing before—in ANY situation—your results are going to be the same. DUH!

My Reset Button

For me the Master Cleanse is like my reset button. It’s a kind of “do-over.”

I get to do all the same things that got me in trouble before I began I started the program, or make new choices. After my third cleanse, I chose to become a vegan, which has proven to be a wonderful adventure.

Now, a couple of years later, I’m considering being more aware of my choices gluten-wise.

At the very least, introducing gluten back slowly. In fact, after a three-day ease-out after the Cleanse itself, which I get to start in a couple of days, I’m considering adding foods one at a time. Just to see how I feel. I’ll let you know how that goes.

In the meanwhile, is it time for you to consider what kinds of changes you want to make in your life?

I look forward to your feedback.

Happy change of seasons. Happy Autumn.
