Hello everybody, I would like to say a few words to all of you who are trying to reach 21 days.

I don´t understand why you all trying to do such a long fasts with having problems with just one day. All is in your heads and thats why I would recommend you to point your mind just maybe for 3 days. After that you realize that beeing without food is no problem at all and with this knowledge there is no problem to handle out long term fasts.

I would like to give you some advices:

1. as we know: When you fast your toxins are mobilized and they are the reason why you feel so bad. I think that better than detox your body during fast, is really better to do so before fasting. Today my body is clear enough, that i´m not experiencing any problem during fast but before my first long-term fast i did several mechanical cleaning. I cleared my intestines with sankhapraksalana and then I aimed on liver and cleared them by procedure typical for russian alternative medicine - using olive oil. If you will be interested in that I can tell you how to make it.

2.In my opinion: Human kind is different from animals in one specific way. Man can live a years without eating and even drinking. This possibily is given to people who are connected to not sawable source of energy. In India terminology we can lan it prana, chinese medicine is using term Qi.

This connection is in everybody but every person have different level of energy income. The amount of energy you get is clearly markable during fast. If you feel tired during fast it means that your connection to god power is low. Other case - you are full of energy during fasting means that your "chakras" system is well developed.

This can be proved by simple fact that I realized during my fasts. First 14day fast my weight fall down to 57 Kg, second 21 fast the weight loss stopped at 58 Kg. And what does it means? It means that my chakras developed their abillity to gain energy. I excpect lower and lower weight lost with every next fast in future. I´m sure that in a few years I will be able to become breatharian with losing only a few of my weight during more then 40 days fasts.

So now you must be asking how I could improve my own chakras system to handle fasting easily?

First: it depends on your faith to god - if you are faithfull then god will give you a power you need.

Second: you should not be addicted to material stuff. Less visible you need more invisible(energy) you will get.

Third: clearing your personal karma is one of the basis. You just need to say sorry and feel being sorry in your heart for mistakes(black karma) you did, and creating white karma by helping another beings.

Fourth: you can also improve your system by using some exercice. E.G. practicing pranajama, or chinese Qi gong.

On the the and I will give the best advice how to make your chakras working. Fasts, fast nad one more time again fasts. Fasting clears your body so the energy flow between 7 basic chakras is gently fluent. Fasting also clears your black karma and if you are spiritual being, you can feel that your connection is higher with every fast you did.

If there will be any question don´t be afraid to ask:P

Loex I know there will be a number of people interested in fasting and yoga and for that reason I moved your post to a more appropriate category. However the first half is more about the benefits of a short fast so I may have to duplicate this and post it elsewhere too. I just didn't want it to get lost in the wrong thread. As we do not exclude anyone's ideas and practices on fasting on this site it merits its own category.

I would certainly like to know more about your liver cleanse using oil and am wondering if you could post it here: www.fastingconnection.com/forum/general-...-my-postmans-formula

About the other bit on chakras and fasting I am confused as in the first part you say "When you fast your toxins are mobilized and they are the reason why you feel so bad." and then you say if you clear your karma you get more energy and less negative low energy symptoms. So my question is in this yogic model you describe, if we remove the negative karma do we still need to eliminate the toxins? And if our energy is high without detoxing does that mean that we no longer have toxins in our system?

Thanks
David

This is very interesting. It has been a year since you (the original poster) posted this. Did you do any more fasting?

It is very interesting to note your observation that fasting cleans the chakras and makes the energy flow through them more easily. I think this is known as cosmic energy.

I am experimenting on myself with alternate day fasting (ADF). In this, I simply eat a large balanced vegetarian meal every 48 hours. I also take daily wheatgrass enemas which is said to re-integrate the root chakra with the crown chakra. And I can confirm that I feel great since doing this.

I am not sure if the goal should be breatharian but rather have a constant connection with the cosmic energy. I do have an ultimate theoretical personal goal of possibly eating just once a week though. It is said that one can live to 1,000 years if they do this.

From my research, it seems that extended fasts may be too taxing for the body, such as fasting for 40 days. I think that someone would get even better results and a lifelong discipline, best of both worlds, if he or she ate every other day for 80 days.

At the very least, I think this would preserve the hormones and improve a lot more muscle mass in the body. It would be nice to see a kundalini awakened yogi who has a "six-pack"!

But you made an important point in your post about the chakras which I liked. Essentially we should not do water fasting for the superficial purpose of weight loss but rather to raise the cosmic energy (chi/prana) running throughout our subtle energy centers (chakras). Not only does this improve longevity, it also makes us more spiritual and I think opens up our third eye too.

By the way, since you are interested in breatharianism, I met Sun Yogi Umashankar here in India and he is a Himalayan Yogi who did not eat for 12 years! Instead, he derived the cosmic energy directly from the sun through a type of sun gazing. But he told me that the greater goal of constant enlightenment is even beyond the siddhi (perfected supernatural ability) of living off the sun.

Indeed, I did sun gazing in Los Angeles for 3 months and then one morning did it for 50 minutes straight. I then had a spontaneous kundalini experience in which I automatically did complicated yoga postures. So one aspect is the energy release from chakra activation, but another aspect is that we should gradually do such practices (i.e. fasting, sun gazing) so that we can handle the resulting mania and euphoria.

Interesting post thank you dj Shiva. Would really caution anyone against attempting sun gazing though as I had a friend who ruined his eye sight by attempting it.
