I've been enjoying myself these past few days. Things have been challenging for sure, but in a really surprisingly good way. Our group did a 3 day water fast this past Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
We had a light breakfast Monday morning, and broke the fast with a light intentional meal on Wednesday at 4:00pm. Tuesday we had a day of silence from sunset to sundown.
During this fast we had several different people from the community come to our place and teach us about their practices which included yoga, meditation, music, and lifestyle.
Being a part of these practices made me feel a sense of spirituality that I've never felt before. I'm really happy I was able to get into a headspace that allowed me to feel that. At the beginning I had a lot of reservations about fasting. I was worried it wasn't healthy, and that I would be putting myself in harms way. After doing more research I discovered this wasn't necessarily the case. I feel like putting aside the thoughts of food helped me to get in touch with myself on a deeper level than I'd previously experienced. I was trusting my body in a way that felt scary, but I had a sense of knowing I would be okay, which felt powerful. I really enjoyed the meditation practices. I felt a sense of contentment that felt like a relief to me. Overall I'm really happy I participated in it.
