Hello beautiful soul. It is my day four of an extended water fast. I wanted to share with you my experience of fasting. If you are new to self healing, or never heard of a liquid fast, you might think it's impossible to live without food. Most people are conditioned to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner and then snack in between. Many years ago humans didn't have ready made, fast foods and they didn't nuke them in microwave ovens. They planted, harvested, gathered their food. They prepared it and preserved for the colder days. This took much time and effort and it kept them connected to Mother Earth and the source of their nourishment.
I have been plant based for over 13 years. I believe this is the best nourishment for my overall well being. I know people can be healthy eating animals if they are well balanced in all aspects of their wellness. Food is not only satiating your hunger, most people are feeding their emotions. Food effects your thoughts and overall quality of life. It either nourishes you or it makes you toxic. "Let food be thy medicine and let medicine be thy food" - Hippocrates, Father of Medicine. However, healthy food sometimes is not enough if you are toxic. You got to cleanse and tend to your other parts of being (read my previous blog The Four Sacred Parts of You). Every part of the world has exactly what people need to survive and heal, from fruits and vegetables to healing herbs. Source local and organic foods and plant your own if you can.
Knowing why you want to fast is essential to help you get through it. Having a strong mindset in the process is key. You can think yourself out of a fast or you can have a clear and focused mind on taking one day at a time through the process. If you've never done a fast before, one day or three might be just the right start. Eliminating bad stuff from your diet - all the non foods being sold as food: packaged products, filled with colours, flavours, additives, sugars and other toxic substances. This in-itself would do your body a lot of good. Doing intermittent fasting is also beneficial. This is when you only eat between midday and 6PM, to allow the body the time to process food and cleanse. Did you know that when the body stops digesting food when you're on a fast it goes into autophagy. This is when the body starts to detox, cleanse and use up the energy from things that don't belong in your body.
Legal disclaimer: I am not a medical health expert and I am not sharing advice - only my experience. I am my own doctor and I know my own body best. Who else can know my lifestyle, my body better than me. Over the years as I practiced different length of fasting, this is what I discovered works well for me. Take a week to eat only raw plant based food, take another week to eat only one raw meal a day, preferably salad. Drink lots of water. Make sure you source spring water. There is a website that helps you find a local fresh spring findaspring.com. Drinking out of a plastic bottle is not healthy. Chemicals in the plastic bottle leach into water, and tap water in many places is only good for flushing the toiled. Once you start fasting on juice or water make sure you do daily enemas and add a colonic or two. This will help the body to clear out the accumulated toxins that have been sitting in your body for years. Don't do a fast if you are distraught emotionally cause you will be dumping toxic chemistry into your bloodstream from all the suffering and trauma. However, the fast will help with all of the above. The fast gets you more balanced, helps you see, feel and think more clearly. You become stronger from within. And you can then be more inspired and motivated for all your endeavours. Don't get too ambitious without much research - some people have moved into the light on a 40 day fast; while others have surpassed that mark and keep on going.
It's a good idea to take some herbs that your body needs. Most people have parasites. And need help to get them out. This is what is making them go crazy in thoughts and feelings. They can mess with your mind. Do a little research and you might be surprised and shocked. They move upstream on a full moon, sometimes in the brain - playing tricks on the mind. If you have a big sugar craving - this could be a sign that you have parasites.
Your emotions will ebb and flow, so will your energy and thoughts. This is all part of a cleanse. Before you jump into a juice or water fast, do a lot of research. Read more articles from experts and do what you know is best for you. Be kind to yourself and your body. Love thyself.
