Start the New Year with
a Consciousness Cleanse

Debbie Ford’s Breakthrough Program Featured Exclusively on Starting January 4

Most New Year’s Resolutions we make in 2010 will focus on the physical or financial aspects of our lives; a new diet or exercise regime, a new job, more money, a better relationship. Now for the first time ever a radical new program offers a detoxification diet for your heart, mind and soul.  In her new book, The 21 Day Consciousness Cleanse: A Breakthrough Program for Connecting with Your Soul’s Deepest Purpose (Harper One), NY Times best-selling author and prominent transformational life coach Debbie Ford offers a practical three week program that promises to permanently, and positively alter the quality and direction of your life.

Ford is offering an exclusive 21-day course based on her book at launching January 4 to help jump-start your New Year!

According to Ford, “Most New Year’s Resolutions don’t work because if we don’t cleanse out the toxic emotions and experiences from our past and get honest about the present we will be stuck with the same old thoughts, patterns and regrets and end up with the same results.” Ford shares that the “noise” in our minds—guilt, doubt, fear, shame, insecurity, and heaviness of the past we carry around with us keeps us from living the life we were meant to live and from reaching our goals. She adds, “This program will enable you to take back your power from the outer world, turn inward, and embark on the journey of reconnecting with the spirit that moves you.”

With The 21 Day Consciousness Cleanse, she says, you can clean out the container of your own consciousness, enabling you to experience your most soulful self. In just 21 days you will purify your mind and thoughts gaining confidence, strength and inner peace. In her book, Ford walks you through a profound three-part process that includes simple daily exercises, cleansing rituals and prayer:

Week One: The Past. The first seven days of the Consciousness Cleanse are dedicated to clearing out the negative thinking, turbulent emotions, false assumptions, outdated beliefs, unresolved incidents and limiting thoughts that have taken root inside your mind.  You will be liberated from confusion, fear, guilt and self-doubt as you open up to new realms of awareness, emotional freedom and spiritual liberation. 

Week Two: The Present. Once you have released everything that has depleted your vitality and held you back, you will stand firmly in the present moment and take an honest look at where — and who — you are today, observing what is and what is not working in your life.  You will listen more deeply to the calling of your soul.

Week Three: The Future. In this final phase of the Consciousness Cleanse, you will have the opportunity to look into the future and see who you want to be from this day forward. You will reconnect with your highest self and experience of love, contentment, and compassion as you step into the brilliance of your soul’s purpose.

With this program you will uncover the inner source that lifts us out of resignation and mediocrity and into hope, excitement and a future filled with surprises, possibility and Consciousness.
