I'm on day 11 too and experiencing the exact same thing! I started this for health and weight reasons, but it has turned into a spiritual and psychological cleansing as well. Started going to church again too and everything seems so much clearer to me. But I definitely know what you mean about the emotions being on the surface. Gotta believe that is a very good thing. What is the target length of your fast? I'm trying for 21, but just taking it a day at a time. Good luck and blessings to you....
I haven't done a cleanse since last fall and I always seem to forget about the spiritual uplifting until it happens to me. The clear and precise perception of things and people and their behaviours, etc. This MC is amazing for the spirit. All the talk about "things" coming out of one's body are interesting but personally I find the enlightenment the BEST! I can now understand how the Vietnamese could smell the GI's miles and miles away - Because of their food intake. I can now smell a meat eater coming towards me on the street. Uncanny, eh? But, I love the knowings. Different strokes for different folks, I guess.
Anyway, enjoy your continued heightened awareness because it sure dissolves when you begin to eat again.
Good luck with the job! Perhaps this is why your emotions are up.
