I think this cat just used up another cat life! I am out of my fasting as of last night. I know many people are praying for me. Prayers answered!
The shift I was waiting for came only 7 days after the fasting! I thought it would take a lot longer or maybe never. I was willing to do it for up to 21 days, but my body made the shift!
The shift I was looking for was return of circulation and desire for food. It has been an absolutely amazing 7-day experience! (Not recommended, lol!) When the circulation returned yesterday, I felt like thousands of volts of electricity shot through my system, every part of my body was tingling not in a comfortable way. I felt like I had ants all over me! A minor sweat broke through at the same time. At first I didn’t know what was happening to me. All I could do was trying to get out of the discomfort. When it was over, I realized what had happened. I had not experience this myself before, but I have known lots of tai chi people did. When they open a blockage inside, usually during a workshop after we worked particular hard at something, they would tell stories of tingling sensations most often in their hands, sometimes in other parts of their body. It happens only when they break through a blockage. If there are no blockages to begin with, energy circulates and flows like a river, no bursting through any circuits needed, just a warm glow that’s comfortable. I have always been completely healthy and super flexible, that’s probably why I never felt it before, but this time it broke through with a vengeance!
After it was over, I felt hunger for the first time since I started this fasting. I have to move out of the fasting slowly of course otherwise I might create other problems for myself. I had David made me really thin rice soup and had half of a cup to start with. At first, I felt this pressure in my stomach, I thought I was going to throw up again! Thank God, it stayed down! I slept so well last night. I will keep increasing my food intake slowly.
A couple of other amazing things happened to me as a bonus. All of a sudden, my sense of smell sharpened! Don’t know what that is about. My sense of smell has never been that good, but now everything smells so strong, good and bad. It’s incredible!
The other unexpected bonus is my skin cleared up! My complexion brighten considerably almost overnight… or over 7 days I haven’t been really looking at myself in the mirror. As part of the fasting, I have been doing coffee enema everyday. I know as the body “consumes” the stored fat and tumors, it would be very toxic to my system. My liver would be overloaded. Coffee enema is used to cleanse the liver. I used it during my chemo as part of my routine. With my system completely emptied out after 3 days, I learned how important coffee enema really is. Every morning, I would wake up with a minor ache in my liver. It would immediately disappear after I finish coffee enema.
It will take me a few days to get back to a regular diet and regain my strength. I just want to make a post and thank you all of your support! I went into this extended water fasting not knowing if I would come out of it. Just goes to show you it’s not the end until it ends! There were so many times on this cancer journey I was overwhelmed by fear and frustration, but taking it one moment at a time, life shows the way. As my friend and mentor Alex used to say trading (in this case life) is like driving in the dark, all we see is what the headlight reveals. We can only make decision in the moment as it presents itself. All I need to do is keep going. Thank you for all your love! 💞
Today is one of our local instructor Sam’s 70th birthday. This would be my birthday gift to her. Thank you for being a friend and all that you have done for our tai chi group! May you have a wonderful decade ahead!
