[H2OSprtlvr] Is Fasting good for our bodies? If so is there a particular way to Fast, such as drinking a mix of something or just abstaining from food all together?
[Michael Entity] Fasting is a natural process for the human body that has lost its place among modern patterns of eating. In the past, various fasting periods of time were naturally in place for practices of conserving energy, food sources, and often from necessity. This allowed the body to “reset” itself in various ways, physically, psychologically, and eventually the spiritual elements were added to the process. Fasting allows a great deal of energy to move that would normally NOT move because of the process of intake. Fasting is actually more important than ever for the human body, as your world is utterly drowning itself in various forms of constant intake without true digestion. There are various forms of fasting, but an “easy” fast is to simply stop eating for 3 days. Liquids are always important for the process of fasting, as this helps to move the energy that needs to move. Liquids can include simple soups (light miso), water (with up to 10% juice, if preferred), and some simple teas (without caffeine). A fast will not “feel good” during the process, unless it is a process that you have experienced regularly, but the return to digesting life after a fast can be quite profound in experience. We suggest a fast as being no shorter than three days, and no longer than 7. In short, fasting is excellent for all levels of all of your bodies.
