Maybe you have been alcoholic in the past, maybe you want to avoid sugar altogether, maybe you do not like the taste of it or how it modifies people’s behavior, whatever the reason, it is possible to live without drinking a single drop of alcohol.
When people tease you about such a choice, use humor to deflate the situation.
If you do drink like my friends and family do, do not feel guilty. I only wish to offer a new perspective to some women who may need it.
Blessings to you my friend my sister.
I had nothing in my fridge. I decided to fast for two days instead of one as usual. Doing such a thing is incredible for me.
I used to be so bulimic that even not eating for one hour was a success.
I am not here to advise you to fast or do anything else for that matter. I am an ordinary woman who discovered freedom in a kind and gentle fasting practice, slowly introduced in my life over the years.
I feel happy, pure and free.
I once made the mistake of breaking a fast with a smoothie.
Now I break my dry fasts with a green juice, this is far better.
I don’t find fasting difficult in itself because I don’t feel the hunger anymore. This the reward of a consistent fasting practice.
However, what is very deep is managing all these strong emotions which bubble up. It is as if I was purifying myself from old painful beliefs. They rise up so I can get rid of them.
I recently discovered the freedom of dry fasting when I travel. However, fasting is a way of taking care of my body and spirit, not something forceful and difficult. Thus, I was overjoyed when I discovered that my neighbor had filled my fridge with fresh fruits and vegetables, waiting for me. What a beautiful way to break the fast!
I never thought I could fast, but I had amazing results with a few three-day fasts. However my holistic doctor introduced me to another way of incorporating fasting into everyday life. By eating one meal a day, I allow my body some space to restore itself. I used to eat all day. My body was overwhelmed and always digesting.
I do not recommend intermittent fasting to everybody because we are all different. I just want to share my experience in case you needed a little nudge to jump into this amazing way of fasting.
