Demystifying the Mystical: Ritual Purification and Fasting [Part One]

Fasting is one of the most dreaded, misunderstood and improperly executed ritualistic endeavors made use of by practitioners of the Western Esoteric Tradition.  We make use of this process to prepare for a significant spiritual event.  By following a safe and reputable fasting protocol, the body detoxifies itself, the basal metabolic rate operates more efficiently and higher and aesthetically, it is definitely worth the effort.  More importantly, however, the process forces the individual to focus the Magickal Will with laser-like intensity on the mystical reason for the fast and it serves to demonstrate the individual’s sincerity to whatever the ultimate intent of the work may be.

The Seven Day Fast:  A Proven Protocol*

During the three days leading up to the fast, there should be no intake of large, heavy or greasy meals.  Avoid alcohol, caffeine and any other substance that could irritate the stomach, convert itself to a “bio-toxin” or slow digestion. 

Light exercise is a critical component of this fast.  One should continue with Yoga, Pilates and any other form of exercise that feels comfortable.  Eliminate heavy lifting, long runs or walks and any exercise that over-exerts the body and/or requires a greater intake of calories from whole food sources, during the fast. 

Finally, follow the adage, “Cleanliness is next to Godliness.”  Shower at least once a day using an aromatic soap.  This is a great way to wash away the toxins you excrete through your skin’s pores, satisfy your sense of smell (formerly occupied by the smell of food), and for the couple, a great way to become more intimate and make the process easier for the one fasting.  If you can, try to get a massage out of your significant other too, since it aids the detoxification process!

The Components

1 Bottle of Biotta Sauerkraut Juice
6 Bottles of Biotta Vegetable Cocktail Juice
1 Bottle of Nature’s Plus ReGeneration Softgel Vitamin Capsules
1 Bottle of Senakot, a Senna-based, natural (not chemical) laxative
1 Pur Water Pitcher
1 Notebook to document the effects you experience during the process

This concludes Part One.  In part two, I will provide you with the day by day, step by step fasting protocol and all related information you will need to safely and effectively undertake "The Seven Day Fast."*
