4 Powerful Ways to Develop Your African Spirituality Now

Fast To Develop Your African Spirituality

From what research has shown, fasting might be the single greatest natural healing therapy missing in today’s Western lifestyle. Abstaining from solid food for a extended periods of time is vital for developing emotional balance, improving your ability to absorb energy from the food you eat, and detoxing your body.

While those results may not seem related to developing your spirituality, they are. Here is how and why:

Fasting Develops Emotional Balance

Diets that are high in sugar and processed foods have been linked to depression and other mental illnesses. So its no wonder so many people in the West suffer from these issues!

Since emotions are a part of your light body, your emotional stability should be developed along with the rest of your spiritual anatomy.

The foods you eat can either stabilize or destabilize your emotions. So by fasting, you give you body – and your soul – the opportunity to ‘reset’ itself. Once your body is cleansed of toxins that cause emotional instability, you will begin to gain control over your emotions.

Fasting Gives You More Energy

When your body isnt breaking down food to use as energy, it breaks down fat. That process increases your metabolism by 3.6-14%. After a few days of the fast, higher levels of endorphins appear in the blood, making you more alert and giving an overall feeling of general mental well being.

It takes about 3 – 5 days before you start feeling these effects, so push through days 1 and 2. In fact, the first 72 hours will leave you feeling sluggish and weak. To get you over the hump, I used morenga and heavy green teas to nourish myself while my body adapted.

Fasting Detoxifies Your Body

Detoxification is your body’s process of eliminating toxins that you eat, drink, and breathe through your colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph nodes, and skin. Fasting gives these organs the time and energy they need to repair themselves and clear existing toxins that may be backed up in your system.

If you are new to fasting, start with a three day juice, tea, and water fast. Recover for 2 weeks and return to fasting for a full week. It is recommended that you not fast longer than 7 days, and that you return to a conscious diet once you break your fast.

I thought fasting was going to be easy because I wasn’t at work, but nope I ended up breaking the fast and eating more than I normally do. I felt like I was starving and weak 😞.

I’m very excited about this connection. Earlier today, I was asking myself some questions, such as , what is spirituality and/or spirit? What is African spirituality? I came across your video on YouTube about African spirituality and the 5 parts of the kemetic soul that I thoroughly enjoyed and decided to check out this website. This experience is confirmation that I am on the right path. I love the fact that you share books for me to purchase and read. I will be sharing this information with my friends and family!

Looking forward to something that is authentic. No the truth of the matter im excited as well u know. Lol There is no need for me to ponder over my Christian experience. The fact of this matter this religion has left me dead and unispired for a long time. So yes elated is a understatement.

The truth may be hidden for long but at the right time, it has to be disclosed

I’ve been raised in Christianity. Studied Theology. Taught Bible study. Sent my children to Catholic school.
Visited Mosque w/my brother who practiced Islam. Have gone to many bar mitzvahs & other temple events with friends or family; it is only in the last 6 years of some truths being revealed in my life, that finding this info has enhanced & enlightened my spiritual consciousness like nothing else ever has! I am delighted and excited to embark on this new journey!

During my spiritual journey, I cleanse my body, and December 24th. 2017 I decided not to eat any meat anymore. I had no clue what the difference between vegans and vegetarians, and worst I was a junk food vegan.

I brought cookbooks and found http://www.blackvegan.com which advised me of a lot of great vegetarian meals, natural remedies, and I realized I was not alone.
