Liqua-Fast: Join us in a fast of juices and blended meals!
Hello Everyone and Top of the Morning to You
I will be starting a juice fast on Wednesday February 9. For my faith this is our Lenten season, and a time of atonement and sacrifice. Since I have a body that recently went through a major surgery, been taking medically prescribed drugs for many years, along with a several other major surgeries, which included twice for cancer, I am rededicating my life to the one who created me, and has sustain me through all of the things in my life.
My life story is not the prettiest story, I have experinced some things that a person should never have to and especially some things that have happened should never been a part of a child's life. Sometimes the memories from my early age are frightening and whenever I hear stories of young people suffering through depravitiy, I have to stop and pray and ask that they be given as much as help as possible to heal, and to forget.
In all though, I have joy, and a peace that exceeds all understanding. I really do! and I know that restoration is possible! So with that, I have never fasted for a long period of time, and now I feel chosen and led to this. I am grieving for the loss of my body parts, and through my emotions, I am not feeling whole. With this fast, I am adapting some information from Anne and David Jubb, living on Life force, which incorporated, juicing and blended soups, and as I continue, the blended soups will be replaced by only juice.
I am home for another until the end of March, which will give the quiet time for meditiaiton, prayer, and the cleansing that I expect to receive. When allowed, I will take walks in the fresh air ( I live in the woods, so we have wonderful air), and also, do castor oil packs and of course an enema or two. This is really a blessing as I feel I am now at a fasting center.
Anyone want to join in this with me. I would love to have that energy you will provide - or just add me to your positive pray list as how you worship.I plan to go the full six weeks, but if you can only do one full day, I would love to have you with me.
It is a spiritual journey for me, to help heal, body, mind and soul. It is an opportunity for me to become re-acquainted with me, and open up new areas that I never investigated or ones I have suppressed. My major goal is forgiveness - as there are areas of unforgiveness I have yet to uncover.
I will be recording this in my journal, the good, the bad and the ugly yeah, I know it is some stuff in me that needs to go. I am seizing the moment to grow.
I'm in with you Sis! Don't know for how long, but I know I want to do at LEAST 7 days, nothing short of it as I've never made it past 4 days (maybe 5, but I think it was 4). The Jubb way of doing it, with the blended soups, will greatly help me as I am doing the extended-nursing thing and don't want to detox TOO quickly, heavily.
Eating up the last of my dehydrator treats and other raw dishes!
I may join in too- I was thinking of a lemon water fast for myself. I figure if the water thing gets to major, I could switch to juice and go for a little longer... It is helpful to have a group to fast with that's for sure!
PS I wanted to add this link because I thought it had some good tips on fasting:
After reading it, I may alternate juice fasting and water fasting-
My wife and myself are doing a 30 day juice fast beginning Thursday, Feb 10th.
We will be doing salt flushes for the first 10 days.
My kids want to join us but I am not sure how long they will be able to hang. So we are playing that by ear.
I'm With you too...
I start the "raw" thing tomorrow (well today now since its after midnight) and plan to do juice fast in the middle of the 30 days - but if my juicer comes in early enough I'll start the juice fast right away with you all.... Have to ask -- What is a Salt Flush?
*ask not what your mother can do for you -- but what you can do for your mother* ;)

It is most effective in conjunction with either a water fast or a juice fast (or diet depending on how you look at it). It helps clean out the digestive tract and prepare the body to recieve healthy food (raw) more efficiently.
Hope this is helpful to you.
Peace and Blessings to you on your raw journey.
I'll pray for your strength sweetlips, I can't join you in case I'm pregnant, but I will in spirit. I'm touched by your short story and wish you every success.
Prevention rather than Cure!
I won't be joining you at this time either SweetLips because I don't think my body is quite ready for it. However, you know that my prayers are with you. I pray that God gives you the enlightenment and forgiveness you desire. (and all the other blessings that will come!) Smasty writes quite a bit on the juice fast for spiritual reasons, if you haven't already read her story....
welcome back sweet lips, :) I'm already on day 5 (of the mc cleanse) but i'd love to join in with the group :)
Sweet Lips and to all,
We would like to share this poem with youl. We are brothers and sisters who will experience love and sadness for each other in this world, but the best is yet to come when we are together in Eternity...
God Bless you and Love you.
One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand: one belonging to him, and the other to the Lord.
When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times on his life.
This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it. "Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why when I needed you most you would leave me."
The Lord replied, "My precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you".
Know God, know Peace
No God, No Peace!
Wow, thank you so much for the poem - My sister friend Val tells me that all the time and especially this last 30 days, but seeing it written is so nice, so printed and in my journal ( the one that I write) it is now.
Glad for all of you who are joining me, from each part of the world, we will be covered with prayer, and positive spirits from those of you who are thinking of us doing this journey.
Todd, do you think you family will embrace more raw after this 30 days? As for your children, Jubb suggest juice of course, blended soups, and smoothies - so you may wish to incorporate that for them.
SamL - don't forget to share your news with us - We'll pray for you as well \o/ during this time.
CoffeeSquirrel - you are doing good, I sent love your way while on the MC.
Walkin' - let your soul get you ready, and when you are, you will. Thanks in advance for the prayers It is is faith walk for me.
I got a praise y'all and it is a good one.
I'm new here and I've never heard of anything like this. All you're going live on for six weeks is juice?
Does one have to do Colonics, Fasts, Rejuvalacs?
Are ALL of these necessary? Or just a choice? Please explain the benefits of each, please.
The last time I tried to do a fast, I almost went blind.
I could do them in my twenties and thirties, but granny apparently cannot take the pressure in her forties now.
New York Raw, that made me smile. Stay on this forum and you will constantly be surprised at what people do.
Now - That is exactly my plan. from my previous post: " It is a spiritual journey for me, to help heal, body, mind and soul. It is an opportunity for me to become re-acquainted with me, and open up new areas that I never investigated or ones I have suppressed."
Todd shared a website with me a while ago that I have added to my library that will explain several aspects of fasting www.juicefasting.org as this website does and also http://www.fasting.com/ read the testimonies on this site under fasting journal.
Also, Anemicgal, sounds like you had a negative experience , I don't know the circumstances under which you fasted, or how, but as for me, I been doing this and studying this for a while. While this thread is about asking folks to join, and if not, provide support, here is a wbsite ( there are thousands) that provides some information to you:
About rejuvlac http://www.growyouthful.com/toc11rejuvelac.php that is really your choice to do, as if fasting. No, colonics are not necessary, again, they are all a matter of choice and teaching. For further information, I suggest that you search the board for more reports on fasting, colonics and the like. I used them all! I did not discuss my process because my request was not about that.
Oh, I am well into my 40's and almost 50, so, it's not a problem with my age to do so. I actually love being this age, there is so much freedom in my life and wisdom that has come from my journey in life. What is there to live for if we do not age healthy, where would our growth be?
Wow that must take a lot of will power and determination. I wish you the best, I'll be thinking about you. :) :)
