Hello every one, I have started fasting for healing and spiritual benefits and was hoping to find someone that has posted their own experiances in these forums.
I have read some and they are comforting. I plan on fasting for 30 days or until my body tells me to eat again. I am fasting mainly on water and simple herbal teas with honey ( like ginger tea, or chamomile and the like **organic***) and some diluted juice when I feel like I need it, or even veggie broths with a tad of Sea Salt . I am on day 4 and I still feel hunger pangs yet not too bad.
Yesterday was the most tempting day of all. My sister's family and my brother's family came over, they bought 4 pizzas for launch and my sister in law made a super dinner. I have 4 kids and a husband to cook for everyday. So I can not stay away from food. Besides I think I have to learn to pass up temptation even if I am surrounded by it. That is one thing I am going to overcome, since that is one of the main reasons for my poor health.
I am going to post my experiance with anyone who reads here. I wish all the best. Feel free to ask me questions.Just so you know I started preparing for the fast on Janury 4th, and prayer is a HUGE part of this.
