#7 – Increased Spiritual Connection
Fasting quiets the mind, creating the emotional and mental environment for a deeper spiritual connection. Emotional scars are stored in the energetic system of the body and the cleansing process of fasting creates new space for emotional healing and for positive emotions to come in.
Many people who undergo a lengthy water fast report going through a lot of emotions, often ones that have been repressed for a long time. This emotional journey often leads to path of greater self-discovery and enlightenment about what is important and then to a greater level of self-acceptance and empathy with others and the planet.
Water fasting is truly one of the best things you can do to cleanse your body and improve your physical, mental and spiritual health.
