Before we dive into this glorious subject, may I just say this?
Congratulations on being open to change!
When we are growing and expanding, we are shedding layers and layers of conditioning and external programming and we are inspiring others to do the same.
We are making a difference in the world! That, my friend, counts for something.
If I were You, I would celebrate my Self with more self-love then ever.
So, You have had enough of being this tired version of You.
You dont want to rely on Big pHarma to fix you. You wish to find a way that resonates with you better, a Nature way!
You desire to be better and free-er. You are ready to try FASTING, ready to change.
As many of You know, I have been dragging my immunity-wracked-sorry-butt through decades of self-experimenting and researching. I spent more time not eating than most people I know.
My friend and inspiration sunyogi who did not eat for 9 years is one of those few who has gone deeper down this rabbit hole then I did. It is truly some experience. I have done more than 100 different fasts in my life.., and I am sure that it is one of reasons why I am still here. I do love combining fasts with the sun for some reason. I will cover the subject of healing powers of sun in my next sharing.
Thank to people like you, who share this challenging but honorable path with me, I have been inspired to document my healing journey, that seems to inspire more healing in the world. Thank you for the inspiration and the support!
How To Start?
Prepare well. Mentally. Energetically. Physically.
You are about to give yourself a totally awesome experience.
You are about to rock your own world.
This might be life changing.
It is good to prepare well for this extraordinary turn around in your life.
Steps to take.
1. Put yourself in the right FRAME OF MIND.
- Do a research, watch the best videos and read the best articles to INSPIRE Yourself.
- Set your realistic goals.
- Know that there will be some hick ups and fuck ups, and that is OK!
As long as you keep coming back to what you desire, you are doing great. Expecting a smooth ride here is a setting yourself up for a disappointment.
Be prepared to go through this experience learning from every up and every down. That is the frame of mind we need here. Let your determination fuel you.
2. Create a SUPPORTIVE ENVIRONMENT where you feel safe and inspired to GROW.
Let those who are close to you know that this is what you are doing and you count on their support, or at least - no interference.
A lot of us are afraid of change or fail miserably because we dont find ourselves supported, and healing is a big job, we need as much support as we possible can imagine.
We need that Soul food. It is vital for our healing and our growth. Surround yourself by those who get you and wish the best for you, those who are celebrating our uniqueness.
Lack of supporting energy is one of the strongest underlying currents that hinders healing, be it our own or our planet. What is the point of feeding the body all the nutrients, while the Soul is starving.
True Healing needs wholeness, and we need to remember that.
Let us be honest here - our world with its external programming is not very supportive of anything high vibe: healing, change, or transformation.
Anything that carries out-of-the-norm vibe, like self-love, self-respect, or expression of our UNIQUENESS are being attacked, consciously and unconsciously, often by those who are close to us.
It is just a programming, that is all. When wee see it as such, we are weapon-ed with AWARENESS to deal with it better.
The system set up prefers us like-everyone-else - obedient, non-questioning and submissive, that keeps the system rolling, even if it is on our health or life expense.
It is a painful but enlightening realization that our being sick and dull, unmotivated and dependent is profitable to the system. Yet, we can turn it into our motivation.
That is why it is very IMPORTANT to protect your space when you are doing something so high vibe and self-loving as HEALING.
- Surround yourself by those who wish the best for you.
- Have courage to stand up for your Self!
Claim your right to be the grandest version of the greatest vision you ever had about who you are (a beautiful phrase by Neale Donald Walsch).
3. Prepare your BODY.
In the old world there was not much education on how to relate to our miracle machine- Human Body.
In my ideal world, instead of those fake-reality posters promoting chemicals and vanity, on every corner we would see posters and pictures of how to be a soulfull being and how to treat our Body and our planet with respect, and make this world beautiful... as you already know - I am a dreamer.
One of the most mind-blowing realization that any of us might have is that our physical realm is beautifully intertwined with our spiritual and mental realms. Everything is interconnected, remember? No matter how strongly spiritually we desire change, or mentally making an effort, if the body is blocked and polluted by the substances that wrack our brain cells and alter our DNA - our access to secret passages of real transforsmtion remains locked.
Hijacked and neglected Body cannot serve as a consciousness portal. We have to claim it back.
By keeping our body clean... we are also clearing the mind.. and gaining more access to the Source.
Our miracle machine - Body - is a cosmic devise with the power to upload new vibrations and enhance our life.
Body receives huge amounts of new healing frequencies when it is clean and unblocked. Body needs to be respected and understood in order to show us what it can be and do for us.
Help your beautiful Body to prepare for the new level of being, for the new experience of You.
- Go slow. Give yourself a few weeks to prepare by cutting the number of your meals and increasing the non-eating (fasting) time between the meals. See how that feels.
- Do a gentle anti-parasite cleanse. There are many herbal formulas and zappers out there to handle this with ease. Check your local health store or ask people operating in the healing zone.
- Go raw, just fruits and veggies for 5-7 days before you start your fast.
During preparation time having heaps of ginger, chia seeds, turmeric, cinnamon, cayenne pepper along with many greens and raw coconut oil will do your body a lot of good.
- Do a colonic or a home made coffee enema at least a few times before you go into full-monty fasting mode.
Your beautiful physical form will handle fasting much easier if it feels loved and respected by you.
Now, all you need to do is to welcome this high vibe energy into your life, and start preparing.
After all ... there must be a reason why out of all those articles in the Universe.. you are reading this one.
May we all be HAPPY HEALTHY and FREE!
