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.

I fast regularly….. I want to get back to meditation in the morning,,,,, but I never knew is there one specific system I should choose over the others? since I did find my link to Yoruba and I find I an connected to Ubantu…. I just don’t know …. I have also been practicing Kwanzaa and finding that majority of the diaspora are speaking swahilii…. maybe I should look at that system….?

What if you are battling illness that hold you back from fasting? I am lost in this world. I don’t know what to believe and is sad. I am going to try with African Spirituality hoping I find myself

Greetings, I just listened to the information about Afrikan Spirituality and received it well. The path that I’m traveling is more on Dogon as well as KMT. I know they are interrelated and I’m looking for the balance within them. Thank you for sharing

Asked myself a question yesterday after being confronted about what do I know believe after leaving “Christianity” practices. My answer was simple,
“I don’t know…” Ran across this article and it peeked my curiosity to know more… Thank you!

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 started the fast on Saturday. For breakfast I drank 12 oz of water and throughout the morning I was sipping on herbal tea and it was torture. All I could think about was food. Than I ended up eating two big meals. I will continue to try. Practice makes perfect.

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!
