As the fiery Aries full moon approached, my body sent me clear signals that it needed to fast. From Wednesday evening to Friday morning, I withdrew from all food and drink. Emptying into a state of clear perception, my cells ignited to burn the fuel that lingered within. I welcomed the influx of lunar information into my body. I saw my habits and patterns unraveling before me - saw how many times I have used food as comfort to cover up the pain within. How many times I had eaten mindlessly, simply responding to external stimuli. Since the times of hunting and gathering, we have been internally hardwired to think "let's eat!" whenever we see food. In this society, we are coaxed and craved at every corner. Food becoming more portable, less nutritious, more addictive. We have lost touch with the art of eating, with true nourishment. .
Fasting allows us to unplug from the matrix of overconsumption. It gives our bodies a proper reset and kickstarts rapid healing on a cellular level. We are allowed time to digest and eliminate waste still stored in the body from all the times we took in more than we could handle. .
I will never forget the first sip of water. I let crystals sit under the full moon, infusing the water with their essence - moonstone, Quartz, citrine, bloodstone, and a shiva lingam. Holding the first sip in my mouth, savoring the liquid sustenance with immense gratitude. Feeling it soak into my pores, pour down my throat, and settle deep in my being. .
I highly recommend fasting - I'm thinking of undergoing a dry fast once a month on every full moon. Do your research before starting and make sure you are prepared ✨
