Fasting has its spiritual dimension

Everybody should commit themselves to fasting from time to time. Fasting clears out the bad from both your body and soul. It strengthens the mind and makes you more present in the now. It's an ancient science that fasting has a clear spiritual dimension and can be performed with benefits by them who seeks spiritual insights.

When I am fasting I do it because of its cleansing physical effects. But also because the influences it has on the mind and the soul. Usually I do it in connection with spiritual practices or before something big that I plan to do.

Everything changes if the perspective is different

I went on a vision quest a couple of years back. I was searching for answers in my own life and were trying to find a good path which would lead me to better places.

A little simplified, a vision quest is a rite where you go out in nature searching for spiritual guidance and purpose. Often you spend time sitting alone in a predesignated spot while waking and fasting, and will remain there until the quest is over or the Shaman (don't go out alone) brings you back.

I learned a very valuable lesson while being out there. And I wish to share some of it.
