Fasting Practice

Post by WildWolf »

I've been obsessed with Fasting for a long time and began practicing in my late teens. In the last few days, i started doing Intermittent Fasting again and i plan to do it for the foreseeable future. Daily IF is great for cutting body fat and longevity. Water, Juice and Intermittent Fasting (labeled in order of difficulty) are all great tools for Longevity. Personally, i don't have experience with Dry Fasting.....and think it may do more harm than good. That being said, i've also done quite a bit of experimentation of combining fasting with magick....for a deeper internal cleaning.

As i continue my studies....i'll be posting notes here. There are many videos on fasting in the net and i'd recommend people study up on the topic before taking on any deep challenges in the field. Cheers.

I'm quite fond of that practice, as long as it's within reason and in line with with basic human biology (I strongly doubt "Dry Fasting" is in line with human biology and physiology).
Some decades ago, fasting did help me "reboot" (for the lack of better word) not just my digestive system, but much of the rest me, after years damage done by modern medicine trying to fix some other issue (I'm still on the side of modern medicine :)
But these days, I just don't eat more than it's necessary, so fasting isn't as important as it used to be. Despite that I do believe should practice that thousands ears old tradition more often.
All those cooking shows, celebrity chefs cults, fast food eateries, dirt cheap supermarket food, extreme abundance (at least in western countries) - is actually can be rather toxic environment, in certain ways. Taking time off from all that excess of food (with reason and caution) seems like a necessity nowadays.

Yeah, everything in moderation. I use Intermittent Fasting nowadays, mainly for cutting the fat and cleaning out the pipes. If you really wanna clean out your gut.....get a juice that is a diaretic (cranberry...etc) and do a couple days of juicing fasting. The pipes will be squeezed clean. When it comes to food and health -- More is Less.

Fasting is everywhere in spiritual traditions....so there's quite a bit of merit. Personally...i don't trust much of "modern medicine".

Understandable.
But traditional medicine couldn't keep human body alive past 40, modern medicine doubled that. And pregnancy stopped being near-fatal ailment to both mother and infant, again thanks to modern medicine. Pesky things like smallpox been ravaging for thousands of years, until modern medicine came along. Just a to name a few.
Some might argue, that few of those benefits are not necessarily positive, distorting natural evolution and what not, but I'm all for progress, despite that it always comes with some price tag, everything has a price in this universe. But without progress, there's only extinction.
Human form, with all of it's quirks and imperfections, it is a fine "product". Millions of years of "engineering" went in to it, so I think it would be shame if something to happen to it all and if all that work and effort would get wasted.
To mitigate such risks, progress should not slow down. There isn't all that much time left for humanity anyway, probably.

You misunderstand me.....the development of modern technology for health is great....but much of medicinal striving has been co-opted by corrupt insurance companies and pill factories (Big Pharma....etc). Furthermore, much as in the past as in the present...."Medical Errors" make up a significant chunk of fatalities.

Naturally, this is me looking at things from an American perspective (may be different elsewhere).....seeing all the corruption and inefficiency that goes on in the system. One could argue, this is more of a societal/cultural problem than a medical technology issue....i feel they are intertwined. As my first teacher said....for Preventative Care, go Alternative Medicine. For Emergency Care (broken bones...etc), go too a Western doctor.

Good video on experience fasting. I'm still tinkering with IF, may have a report soon.

As a youth, doing water fasting.....i knew that it was good for cleaning out the pipes via 3rd Eye cultivation.....but lately I've noticed the connection was even stronger than i first realized. The rapid rate at which fasting clears out impurities in the 3rd Eye.....i thought it took a couple of days of purging. Yet even with doing IF, I've noticed a shift in this area....only a day into doing this type of fasting and i can feel impurities release.

In the past, I've noted that people who do large amounts of hallucinogenics and other drugs, can damage there 3rd eye sensitivity and one of the medicines for clearing out the cobwebs, is water fasting. Perhaps, when you start start fasting.....the mental sphere is the 1st system to detox? Not sure.

Fasting and 3rd Eye......it would appear they are friendly neighbors.

The standard humans has various veils that block access to higher subplanes. These are placed to avoid too early access to higher energies.

Hallucinogens often tear the veils leading to psychological instability.

Similarly with kundalini exercises. There was a famous case who wrote about his experiences - name escapes me. But the result was he could see colored auras around people and was unable to work for a living for at least a decade

It is better to let natural progress erode the veils.

Having said that, a fellow, self-declared as a materialistic atheist, had an intervention deleting the veil separating the dense physical from the etheric. In the morning, having apparently not slept all night, he announced he would become an GD magician.

Every now and then I'm a bit perplexed, why we put so much emphasis on the "third eye" (despite it being abstract concept), and almost never on "third ear" or "third nose" (maybe should be "second nose"), "third some other sense".

I'm fan of meditation practices, over hallucinogens.
The latter is more like taking brand new Ferrari for a joy ride on a highway, by someone who never took driving lessons before, never sat behind the wheel before, never even seen a car up close before. That will never lead to anything other but a large pile of mangled scrap metal and lots of broken bones.
And the former is more like taking long, tedious and exhausting driving lesson around the neighborhood in some old pickup. Slowly learning to feel your way around vehicle, getting accustomed, attuned with all the levers and knobs. And as you get better and better at it, your vehicle will slowly morph from pickup, to BMW, to Ferrari and eventually to all-terrain hovercraft with a warp drive.
One gets you going fast but nowhere, the other will can you anywhere, but eventually.

The third eye is a rather dense image. It may be better to consider that the human lightbody, on each plane and subplane can develop perhaps 12 senses.

Examples include:

- sense of direction
- sense of fairness
- stench of corruption
- sense of foreboding
- an ear for a tune.

To develop such senses it is necessary for the human to accumulate sufficient substance of that particular subplane and form that substance into sense organs. This takes time and effort.

Meditation may be useful but there are many other paths. For example the best physicists are able to do "mental" experiments and achieve real insights

Hallucinogens can be valuable....but for some....they can be a trap. Working with substances and having correct intent is key. Short-cut mentality, is the opposite disposition needed for training.
