In this week’s episode Redefining Wealth with Patrice Washington, I’m sharing the reasons you need a soul detox. 

(Consider this your sign.)

Everyone talks about detoxing your physical body. They talk about energy and fatigue, weight loss, skincare, hormones, and emotional imbalance. Those are all important–but there may be signals that your detox needs to be soul deep. 

Tune in to learn why you may be carrying too much spiritual baggage, why you struggle to sleep at night, why you feel imbalanced emotionally and why you are having trouble saying no. Right now, you need a soul detox to clear away the sluggishness of everyday life. 

Are you ready to step into your power?

Why soul detox?

Something unusual happened to me this year. After spending my June living it up, vacationing and laughing with friends, I had a gut feeling on the last day of the month that felt like a sign. 

It was a nudge, then a shout. My body was telling me something. 

It said that I needed to abstain from drinking for a month and do “dry July.” To be honest, it didn’t seem like a great time at first. I could have ignored it, and many would have. After all, July is a month of parties, barbeques, networking events, vacations and hangouts with friends on summer nights. Of all times to quit drinking for a month, why now?

But I couldn’t ignore what God was telling me, and I needed to heed. And I did it. I went to every event sober, with a clear head and a clear heart, because God told me to. 

Now, I’m not a big drinker. But my body was tired, and my soul was showing signs of weariness. And as I understand it, God likes our souls to be shiny. 

He wants us to take care of them; nurture them. He wants us to obey his word and listen when he speaks His wisdom. He knows that we are meant for so much more, and He calls us towards our purpose all the time. But the question is: Are you listening?

Human life inevitably casts a layer of dust over our soul sometimes. We take on too many things, we ignore what our body is telling us, we overwork and get overwhelmed. But it’s important to practice good spiritual self-care whenever we can, and one of the things we can do is a spiritual detox. 

I teach people how to do this–and I can teach you too. (Make sure you register for the official Soul Detox experience, because it’s going to be incredible). 

The first question you may ask is: 

How do I know I need a soul detox?

There are many signs. The first one is that your body and soul are shouting at you that you need a change. But some are less obvious.

Many physical symptoms are actually signs that it’s time to detox your soul. 

The first one? Sleeplessness. If you can’t fall asleep or stay asleep, or if you wake up exhausted from tossing and turning all night long, your soul is not at rest. This happens when you are not in alignment, and your spirit is not peaceful. When it comes to sleeplessness, you should ask yourself how you can live more clearly in alignment with your values. This doesn’t mean you have to quit your job–although if you are feeling called to do that, I empower you. This can mean that you need to get involved in a cause that feels good to you, consume more content that resonates with you, be around people who make you feel like yourself, etc. 

The next physical symptom of soul disharmony is a gain in weight. Don’t take this as a criticism because you can take up as much as little space as your soul desires. But if you feel sluggish, disconnected from your body and weighed down, it’s time for a soul-deep detox. 

Feeling weighed down is a real and significant phenomenon. If this is you: Are you saying yes to too much? Are you taking on too much work, too many social engagements, and carrying too much of the burden of planning or executing events? Are you carrying baggage on your shoulders from other peoples’ expectations of you?

Do an honest assessment of your life. If you designed it for yourself in alignment with your higher calling, what would it look like? If it looks radically different from the life you’re living, it might be time for a detox and a shift. 

Emotional imbalance and indecision are also symptoms of needing a soul detox. If you are not feeling kind, clear and communicative, you might just be out of balance. 

If you’re reading this and recognizing your own symptoms, make sure to practice great self-care right now. You can sign up for my Soul Detox workshop at and I hope I get to see you there. 

You deserve joy, peace, and ease. Life is not supposed to be difficult. I am here to support you…
