It’s now been 10 days on a juice fast, and the end is barely in sight. Well, it’s in vague sight, ending on Easter Sunday which will be a total of 14 days. I have gone on several fasts over the past year, and this one is by far the most challenging. I get very excited before I start a juice fast, telling all of my buddies about it, and then once it starts I realize it’s not a walk in the park. It’s serious cleansing and healing! But it’s so worth it!
Going on a fast means giving up a major source of comfort (food!) and can be difficult, but that is incomparable to the incredible lightness, amazing energy, and spirit which flow through during a fast. That’s the reason I choose to juice fast, because I can feel the incredible sensations of my channels all opening up, and suddenly I am connected to Source like a freshly tuned power line, zipping and zapping and connecting to a ceaseless energy source without any blockages whatsoever in my center. It’s very liberating to give up such a huge comfort as food. A new perspective is released when you stop automatically indulging in cravings and desires. And the longer the fast continues, the more deep the revelations and healing in every cell of your being.
Fasting on freshly pressed organic vegetable juices is one of the most efficient and powerful ways to cleanse, heal, and rejuvenate your body. When your digestive system is given a complete rest, it can tend to all the areas that need attention in your body. Imagine that your house had a loose doorknob. One day, the doorknob is going to fall off and that will be a serious issue. But, you don’t have time to fix the doorknob because you are busy going to work to make money to pay the rent, and making dinner for your family. The doorknob is not a priority so it just sits there and gets worse over time. The same is true in your body- there are priorities, such as your heart beating and your food digesting, that take up your body’s energy. A cleanse gives your body the time and space to heal what is sitting around waiting for you to have time to take care of it.
In my personal experience, there is one thing that makes a juice fast 1000% easier- having a friend or partner cleanse with you. It’s all about accountability! Having someone else going through it with you and holding you accountable can make all the difference. Part of RammDance’s mission is to offer community dance and wellness events, so I would LOVE to get your feedback on whether a guided group juice cleanse is something you’d be interested in. This could be done online so you can be anywhere in the world. It will include downloads and videos with guidance on how to prepare for your cleanse, go through the cleanse, avoid detox symptoms, and maintain your results, as well as a local meet-up with other cleansers in your area. If I get enough “yes” responses, RammDance will offer this community juice cleanse in May, gettin’ you into shape for summer!Woohoo!
