juice fasting is something that i have wanted to do over the past several years. being pregnant or nursing isn’t really the time, but the baby is weaned and so off we go.
wanting to do something is really much easier than actually doing it.
like how i want to be a runner, but i’m not. i run, out of weakness, not strength.
at the beginning of this year i watched too many documentaries. neil mentioned one, another was ‘A Beautiful Truth’. watch it, it will change your life. it prompted me to do a vegan challenge. i really enjoyed that and as time has gone on i have continued to be more vegetarian, more plant based.
but this fast isn’t really about food to me. it is, as my friend Katrina at thepoorganiclife would say about ‘Real food’.
i am expecting that in the next several days i will have moments of weakness, of struggle, attitude adjustments will be needed. i will need to rely on someone Stronger, more Reliable, more Powerful than myself. this can only be a good thing. this could be a time of spiritual renewal and freedom.
yes, freedom. this is an opportunity to focus, not on what i eat, or what will please my taste buds or cravings, but on an eternal sense of pleasure.
i want to feel pleasure in the disciplines of a spirit controlled life.
(and to be perfectly honest it would be great if it would help my eczema and mommy belly too ;).
so, here we go! follow us if you like, we will be posting daily for the next several days.
have you ever juice fasted (or regular fasting)? for how long? what did it produce in you?
