    Differences

    Is it interesting to you all to see the differences in the how, what, why and who of our fasting? It is to me. For me, I cannae imagine sharing the details of a fast publicly like this.

    Fast Sunday

    For fast sunday. Every first sunday of the month. It is hard, and with me it is REALLY hard because I LOVE food. But I make it through, and I fast because I have a purpose. Whether it is for me, my family, or someone I know, I strive to have a purpose. So I fast once a month...

    The Nazarene Way

    Today I fast, for the first time, partaking in the way of the Nazarene. The first day is a cleansing of spirit, summoning the Angel of Air for this purpose. This is the prayer of communion to the Angel of Air found in book two of the Essene Book of Peace. The Angel of Air, Who...

    Fasting In The Wilderness

    I just got back from a trip to the mountains, which culminated in a three day fast.  I have a fair amount of experience with fasting, but have always done so indoors, with people around.  It makes it hard with all the distractions.  People are eating three times a day, and...

    My Fasting...

    I fast for a variety of reasons and primarily 3 ways. The three ways I focus on are the Master Cleanse monofast, a variation of this with bentonite clay and parasite cleansers, or just plain water fasting. I fast a few times a year, mainly depending on how my body and mind...

    First Time

    I've always thought that fasting was a very personal and serious thing, and that it should be done for a specific purpose.  Because of this, I've never been in to "designated" fasts like Lent.  I think the act is more personal than that.  Up until now, I haven't...

    He Knows Me Well

    That last several months I've grown a lot since my ex left the house. It's been an interesting, fun, enlightening and occasionally a hurtful ride. There's been things in my life that I've not had the strength to let go off, to walk away from, to quit and I've struggle through...
