How would you like to do something in the morning that will take you 3 minutes max, costs pennies and will give you:
- more energy
- help you lose body fat
- help you flush toxins
- minimize caffeine cravings
- make your skin soft and luscious
- make you feel good?
Sound too good to be true?
I promise it isn’t.
People are always asking me about health and beauty tips because I don’t just care about emotional and spiritual health, I care about physical health as well. And I wanted to share this one with you…
I’ve done this regularly for a number of years, but over the past 6 months, I got out of the habit. What a mistake! Now that I’m back on a regular routine again and doing it, I can really tell the difference.
So here’s what it is: Every morning, I squeeze the juice of a lemon into a glass of warm water. I then drink it with intention (more on that later). The benefits of this are really nothing short of incredible.
When I got out of the habit of doing this, the first thing I noticed was my skin. I inherited my mother’s skin and it’s really soft and luscious. I noticed when I got back from our Egypt trip in March that my skin was not quite its luscious self. I realized I had stopped my years-old habit of drinking the warm water and lemon and I swear to God – within 2 weeks, the lusciousness was back, as well as a kind of glow. Not to mention I had more energy and I even dropped a couple of pounds!
One of my friends started doing this a few years ago and she found that it made her stop drinking coffee. And she was someone who absolutely had to have a big, strong cup of java to get going in the morning. As she drank the warm lemon water, she set the intention, “Energize me, Energize me, Energize me,” and after about 30 days, she was off coffee. And that was 2 years ago!
I think the combination of drinking a warm liquid and setting that intention did the trick – it tricked her body into thinking it was getting the coffee that was her habitual morning wake me up.
So I’m going to tell you EXACTLY how to do this (it’s important), but first I want to tell you all the benefits. I Googled this when I started to write this and found even more benefits than I knew before.
Here are all the amazing things this simple habit does (my thanks to FoodMatters):
- Lemon is an excellent and rich source of vitamin C, an essential nutrient that protects the body against immune system deficiencies
- Lemons contain pectin fiber, which is very beneficial for colon health and also serves as a powerful antibacterial
- It balances and maintains the pH levels in the body
- Having warm lemon juice early in the morning helps flush out toxins
- It aids digestion and encourages the production of bile
- It is also a great source citric acid, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium
- It helps prevent the growth and multiplication of pathogenic bacteria that cause infections and disease
- It helps reduce pain and inflammation in joints and knees, as it dissolves uric acid
- It helps cure the common cold
- The potassium content in lemon helps nourish the brain and nerve cells
- It strengthens the liver by providing energy to the liver enzymes when they are too dilute
- It helps balance the calcium and oxygen levels in the liver
- In case of a heart burn, taking a glass of concentrated lemon juice can give relief
- It is of immense benefit to the skin and it prevents the formation of wrinkles and acne
- It helps maintain the health of the eyes and helps fight against eye problems
- Aids in the production of digestive juices
- Lemon juice helps replenish body salts, especially after a strenuous workout session
Wow! Isn’t it incredible that it does all those things?
So here’s EXACTLY the way to do this to get maximum benefit:
- Within 15 minutes of waking up, cut up one lemon into four wedges.
** I use organic lemons as they (hopefully) don’t contain toxins from insecticides.
- Warm up the water.
** I use spring water, not tap water or filtered water.
** I use a glass electric kettle to warm up my water. It’s faster than a microwave, and I don’t want to radiate my water with microwaves.
** The water should be warm, not boiling.
- Squeeze the juice of the lemon into the water and drop the wedges in.
- Drink your lemon water with intention.
** I will think things like “Love me,” “Help me,” “Heal me,” “Energize me,” or “Cleanse me,” while I’m drinking it. I’m a big believer in intentions and I think that it makes a difference when we do things with intention, especially with eating and drinking.
- Use the lemon all day long and simply pour more water into the glass during the day.
When I went back to doing this again, I was amazed at the difference it made with my skin. I saw the difference in less than 7 days. It’s all luscious and glowing again.
Most importantly, be sure to do the part where you set your intention as you are drinking the water. I promise you it makes a huge difference. I’m reading two different books on brain chemistry and how we can change our brains with our thoughts and our intentions, so don’t forget the intention part.
It’s also a good idea to rinse your mouth out with water 30 minutes later so the lemon juice doesn’t affect your tooth enamel.
So that’s my gift to you on one simple way you can make a shift in your life. If you’re looking to have even greater shifts (like peace, joy, bliss, living a life on purpose), I want to give you another gift — and that’s doing a Sedona Soul Adventures retreat.
Have a conversation with one of our Soul Guides. You can talk to them about your intentions and all the amazing possibilities that are out there for you.
They’ll custom design the perfect retreat for you (or both of you if it’s a couple’s retreat) and they’ll put together a retreat that’s designed to bring you into the peace and happiness you’re craving.

Our Egypt trip is almost sold out – act now and join us March 9 – 22
We’ve almost sold out the trip! I hope you’ll decide to join us for this journey of a lifetime!
We go to all the must see places:
- The Great Pyramid (including 2 hours of private time just for our group for ceremony)
- The Sphinx
- Abu Simbel
And we go to places that the average tourist doesn’t go to:
- Tomb of King Tut
- Tomb of Nefertari
- Tomb of Ramses VI
- Tomb of Seti I
- Isis Temple at Philae
- Hathor Temple at Dendera
- Horus Temple at Edfu
- Kom Ombo (dedicated to the crocodile god Sobek and Horus)
- The Temple of Abydos
- And new this year, the fabulous Grand Egyptian Museum will open in November, 2022 with the complete King Tut exhibit and all the other treasures. I can’t wait! This place is huge and we’ll spend an entire day there.
One of the first things you might be thinking is – “Is Egypt safe?” I was just there in February and (as usual) it was wonderful, incredible, and safe.
Everyone in the group commented that they felt completely safe. As I said, this will be my 23rd trip to Egypt (my first was in 1983). The Egyptian people are some of the warmest, friendliest people you will ever meet, and they love Americans.
One of the things that is so fantastic about our trips is that typically our people fall in love with each other within 48 hours. So even if you’re traveling alone, you’re not traveling alone! You’ll have a bunch of friends with whom you’ll share these amazing experiences, many of whom will become friends for life.
And now for the first time, we’ve decided to do a 5-day add-on to Jordan and Petra in between the two trips, so that people from each trip can experience these amazing places!
We’ll be going to Petra to see one of the most spectacular places on Earth, Wadi Rum, the Dead Sea and Jerash.
Petra was one of the most important cities on the ancient trading routes of the Middle East back in the 1200’s. And then it faded into obscurity and for many years people in the West thought it didn’t even exist, that it was a kind of Shangri La that was mystical and not real.
But in the 1800s, a Westerner disguised himself as a Bedouin and was taken there. It was re-discovered and became known as “The Lost City.” Now it’s become a Unesco World Site, because it is so extraordinary.
Do you remember the ending of the movie “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade”? This is the one where Sean Connery plays Indiana’s father. Towards the end of the movie they are taken to this mystical place where the Holy Grail has been kept for millennia (that part isn’t true).
At the very end, we see them riding off into the sunset away from this incredible place. Here’s a picture that shows the incredible stone structure, and why this place is called “the Rose City.”
In addition to Petra, we’ll visit Wadi Rum, the place that is also known as “Mars on Earth”. The landscape here is so striking and so incredible that many movies about Mars have been made here, including The Martian (2015), The Last Days on Mars (2013), Red Planet (2000), Mission to Mars (2000), etc.
Many other films also have been filmed in Wadi Rum, like Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Prometheus and Lawrence of Arabia. The real Lawrence of Arabia made his camp here during his campaigns. Wadi Rum is huge, over about 183,000 acres!
We’ll also spend an amazing day at a beautiful resort on the Dead Sea — on that day I intend to have a massage and a mud bath!
We will also visit the ancient city of Jerash. Jerash is considered one of the largest and most well-preserved sites of Roman architecture in the world outside Italy. And is sometimes referred to as the “Pompeii of the Middle East” because of its size, the extent of excavation and the incredible level of preservation.
What an amazing addition this will be to this already incredible trip!
