My 10 day cleanse
As it has been at least 10 years since I have done a fast or cleanse of more
than 3 days I decided that it was time. During a fast or cleanse, the organs
don’t have work on processing food and can instead clean out their storage
of toxins. There is also spiritual reasons to fast, when we stop taking in
nutrition on the physical, we start absorbing energy from the spiritual
levels, and a high spiritual consciousness is attained.
For the first two days I juiced pineapple and diluted the juice half with
purified water and ate fresh pineapple. I drank water as well. At the end
of the second day the pineapple started to slightly irritate my mouth. There
was only a little hunger that the juice and fruit would mostly assuage.
Days 3 began with 2 cups of water with the juice of one lemon and 1/4 tsp of
sea salt. Days 3 and 4 I only drank orange juice diluted half with water and
ate 3-5 oranges a day. On the night of day 5, I blended 1/3 cup of olive
oil with 12 ounces of orange juice. This was much more palatable to drinking
the olive oil straight which I had once done, and which made me avoid all
olive oil for years afterwards! The olive oil is supposed to contract and
cleanse the gallbladder. Many report myriads of small green stones coming
into the toilet the day after doing this, this happened to me last time, but
My consciousness was definitely lifting. I noticed nature as being totally
alive, I could sense all the trees in the neighborhood at once and felt
their suchness or beingness without all the mental chatter that usually
blocks direct perception of reality.
Day 5 was the most difficult as I just fasted on water and had some hunger
and mostly just rested.
Days 6 and 7 was just on apple juice diluted half with water and eating
apples, grapes and pears. I also had 1/2 cup of pomegranate juice on most
days of the cleanse.
Days 8 and 9 were on fresh made carrot juice. I also ate apples and pears.
To the carrot juice I added fresh parsley and the juice of chinese and savoy
cabbage from my garden. After reading books on the lives of stars, I
meditated more deeply than I can remember. I felt the mind of God
penetrating all the galaxies of the universe and felt they were all floating
within me and I within them.
On day 10 I added steamed greens (chinese cabbage, bok choy and 3 types of
kale) from the garden along with some homemade fermented vegetables. Lunch
was greens in miso soup. In the evening I had some homegrown lettuce, celery
and leeks with olive oil and apple cider vinegar.
I think everyone could use some sort of fast or cleanse. Short ones every
year and longer ones every few years. I feel that breast cancer and prostate
cancer could be prevented with a 10 day cleanse like this one every year.
During this cleanse I also took herbs and homeopathics that open the kidney,
liver, intestines and lymph to detoxify.
If you ever feel an inner prompting to do a cleanse or fast I would be glad
to make a custom made plan just for your body.
