Day 9 of the Daniel Fast

I finally did find the post I wrote on Cinco De Mayo….but it’s close to the one I wrote the next day.  The juice fast was very cleansing….although I did get really hungry on the 3 rd day…for dinner I included 2 slices of Ezekiel bread with 1/8 of an avocado.  Physically I feel good, I’ve been having trouble with having energy crashes in the afternoon just after lunch….but I get up at 6 am after staying up until 11pm….when I sleep naturally….or wake up naturally….I seem to be like clockwork with 8 hours….during the week, it’s 7 so I do get behind anyway.  Yesterday though, I did get a bit run down but popped right back up and was fine.  I usually lay down for 15 or 20 minutes in the afternoon if I can….and thanks God….usually I can.  Emotionally and mentally I feel very even keeled, in the past I’ve gotten “ah ha” moments while doing this….nothing so far but that’s not so bad.  I am really drawn to raw foods again to the point of that is all I want to read about, watch, research….and of course experiment with new recipes : )  I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to go all raw due to the protein….but maybe…..I’m used to living on yogurt for my protein and have had none of that during this fast….I’m mostly eating hemp protein and soy milk smoothies, sprouted lentils, (they’re raw), soy nut butter and re-fried beans…fat free of course…..and OMG….have I got a recipe coming for you!!!!  Spiritually, this goes with the raw food living too….I feel more grounded but at the same time more elevated and connected with God.  I went to my meditation group on Wednesday and I haven’t been in a few weeks….it was like I heard God say, “Would you like a spiritual experience out of the fast or not?”  I said YES, YES, I definitely would!  The meditation was awesome, I had trouble staying in my body…and sense I was sitting in a chair and didn’t think that the lady next to me would appreciate me plopping onto her…I made sure that I stayed in my body : )  I do need to exercise more though…I’ve been doing a yoga/pilates combination on my own for about a month but I’m not really getting my heart rate up, the weather has been horrible….but now it’s looking good so I’m going to get out there and walk…power walk….in the beautiful sunshine!  But for now, I have a list of things to complete first….adios amigos!
