I've been fasting since 2002, and have improved my understanding of the process each time.
Unfortunately my intentions weren't always right. I continued to smoke, drink, do drugs after my fasts. My life was crazy, full of stress, and I didn't know what the next day would bring.
Now I'm settled, a little sadder and a lot wiser. I'm ready to shed everything that has happened and retain all the good.
My body has been calling me to fast, and I started eating only one vegan meal a day last week after slowly cutting out meat.
My cravings for coffee have all but diminished. The cigarettes disgust me. I'm in a different place completely. Fasting on one meal a day has achieved this.
I looked at my body today, and see about 15 pounds of excess waste, water and clumps of fat. This looks like stored anger, fear and sadness. Somehow when I fast these feelings disappear, as will their physical counterparts.
I want to settle, get married, be happy, have a baby. I want to clear my body of all this negativity. And that's why I'm here. I have decided to start water fasting, as of right now.
