Today is my 8th day on the Daniel Fast. The first two days I was exhausted, but my energy has returned and I am happy to say that I have lost a little over 5 pounds. Surprisingly, it really hasn’t been difficult. I have done many different fasts, detoxification processes, and purification programs. This has been one of the easiest of them.
As part of the process, I have also committed to daily meditation and to the clearing of a space. Meditation is something that I have done sporadically for many years, so this is just a way to be consistent. The clearing is something that I really started doing about 7 years ago.
There is something freeing about letting go of things. I have decided I will go through my closet and dresser and get rid of anything that does not fit or look great on me. I did this several years ago after reading an article explaining how to empty the closet/drawer and to try everything on before hanging it back in the closet. (To expedite the process, I ditched the things I didn’t love first. Then toss the things that have holes, stains, etc.) I thought these would be appropriate spaces to clear since my focus is on losing weight. The bonus is that clearing spaces always allows something new to come into my experience.
So, I have 13 days to complete this process. I am looking forward to optimizing my health, releasing excess weight, and seeing some great new things in my life.
