Life spiraled out of control. Then I started fasting.
The first post in my fasting blog. I am starting water fasting today for a few days in my quest to let go of the past and reconnect with my true self.

Hi everyone, this is the first post in my fasting blog.
I have fasted several times since 2002, and my intentions were never right. I wanted to lose weight and cellulite, wasn't committed to following a healthy lifestyle afterwards. I also continued to smoke, drink and smoke marijuana.
My life was also chaotic. I never had a steady job, was living overseas, and felt constantly as if my livelihood was in danger.
The most important lesson I learned from this time period was to relax and trust that the universe is showing you the right path. That I'll be ok, no matter what. That I'm safe, that I won't go hungry, that I'll always have a place to sleep.
I have since relaxed. I'm now on a proper career path doing something I love. I've been reunited with my family and friends and no longer feel insecure or lonely.
But when I look in the mirror I see the stored hatred, anger and sadness. The discontent. The stress.
My body looks like a roadmap of everything I thought "went wrong". But I know now it was not wrong. It was perfect. It brought me here.
A couple months ago I stopped eating meat. A couple weeks ago I started fasting by eating one vegan meal per day. The cravings for coffee have disappeared, and the cigarettes disgust me.
Fasting has always had this effect.
I've also experienced more clarity and focus. And more love and understanding for everyone and everything around me.
Now I am being called to fast only on water. Starting now.
