On Tuesday July 24, 2018, right after I got back from an incredible business trip, I started my 26 day fast. Yes, that’s right, I’m not going to eat or drink anything but pure spring water for 26 continuous days! Most people around me barely understand what I’m saying, they look at me baffled and ask, so you’ll eat only at night? And I smile and say.. nope.. no food at all. Some of you will understand it well, and may have already done something like this.
So why am I doing this? Am I crazy? Yes, absolutely I am! 🙂 I am doing this because fasting is one of the most powerful and best ways to heal and detox the body. I truly believe that it is better than any cleanses you can do out there. The body knows how to heal itself, and if you stop feeding the body and forcing it to use up all its energy on digesting, it will redirect the energy to healing. Get out of your body’s way, and it will heal itself! Many people have had all kinds of things clear up with fasting. I’m so extremely excited!
I am doing this under supervision, of course! My fasting coach says we should have complete emotional, mental and physical rest during the fast to allow the body to really focus on healing. He is coaching me over Skype, calling me every single day, speaking to me about how I’m doing, going through my vital stats, and giving me information. I’m extremely grateful to have found such an incredible coach! He says up to 40 days water fasting is safe even for thin people, beyond that it depends on how much fat reserves you have. I’m well within the safety limit!
This post is to cater to days 1 and 2. I did a 3 day water fast just a month earlier, and that was a really tough thing for me to do! I felt so hungry then, all the time! I noticed that every time I had an even minutely stressful thought I’d get a hunger pang. This time I have barely had any hunger pangs! It’s so strange! I suppose I’m just emotionally much more stable and calm. It’s perfect, I’m thrilled! On day 1 I slept a lot, since the business trip I’d been on had been so intense. On day 2 I had so much energy! I was completely expecting to sleep the whole day, but I was running around, unpacking, setting up, cleaning, throwing out everything from my fridge, and doing everything that would make my life easier in the coming month. Life is so exciting!
Blessings, healing and love to you!
