Stamos, i just wanted to congratulate you on your fast and also on your kind and considerate thoughts and perceptions about the situation with your grandmother's passing. my own input is this-- yes, it is not the ideal you might have envisioned, with being able to fast "to completion", yet given what you have said about the whole situation, it seems best to go with the heart's wisdom, and to get mentally aligned with whatever you decide to do. Don,t waste time or energy on second- guessing yourself, or regretting doing what you feel called to do. This will make all the difference to your re- feeding and gentle return to having more stamina. The feelings you have shared here of not wanting to cause undue suffering for others, through them worrying about you, and so on, are compassionate and loving. Were i in your shoes i would do my best to
stick with the plant-based juices at first and in very small amounts, building up as you are able, and perhaps try some very simple broths, of vegetable.
It is amazing how much the body can do with simple vegetable ( homemade, organic) broth, after having worked on some deep cleansing and healing.
i would not encourage raw meat, esp. for someone who feels as though. they are having to break the fast before they would otherwise have done.
it may be that some people who feel great hunger could be fine with such
nutriment, but for others it could prove dangerous. take as much rest as you can, even if this is just for short moments, where you let go of all thoughts and the need to reason anything out, and from this place, inspiration will come, little by little, as to your own innate knowing of what
nutriment is best for you. my own sense would incline toward the freshest ripest plant- based fruits and vegetables i cold find, as these will be the most fully balanced, in terms of minerals, and i tend to agree with
desert lily's suggestions. Go easy, and be gentle with yourself. it sounds as though you are already feeling gentle with others, and this will serve you well.
blessings to you and those who are near, and whomever you come across in this
