Power Juice Fast- Day 19

by Steve Prussack
Host of Raw Vegan Radio

I didn’t experience any detox or cleansing symptoms today.  My energy was high throughout the day, and I felt great.  I was able to complete my work schedule without difficulty, but had less time to make my juices.

Therefore, I cut back on one quart of juice today.  I don’t think it made much of difference, because I drank a lot of water instead.  I have been reading a lot lately about the benefits of water fasting.  I have never tried a prolonged water fast, but might aspire to that at some point in 2012.

Juices of the Day

1.  Carrot/ Apple/ Beet/ Ginger
2.  Pineapple/ Red Grapes/ Ginger/ Coconut
3.  Beet/ Kale/ Celery/ Carrot

I drank 3 quarts of Juice today.  I followed the protocol for HealthForce’s Healing Cleanse Level 2, since I had such a hard time detoxing all through last evening (I have too much work to do during the day to keep running to the restroom).

Weight Loss

I actually gained a pound.  I weighed 174 today.  I have lost 9 pounds since starting the cleanse (starting weight was 182.4).

Spirit of the Night

I had a question on my Facebook page from Maria.  She asked:  

Hi Steve,I would like to know what kind of spiritual lessons you have been
learning from the juce fast. I would really like to know. Thank you. Marilee

Thank you for asking Marilee.  Spiritual growth has been a big part of this cleanse.  I feel more connect to the universe than ever before.  I have better insight into my life, the path I have taken, and where I (we) are going (as a species).  I know that 2012 will be a very special year of global transformation, and I am excited about the possibilities.

As far as growth, I feel I am working things out in my dream state.  The universe/ source/ god (whatever you use to talk about the almighty force of life and love) has been working on me while I sleep.  I have vivid dreams.  It feels like I am living another life when I close my eyes at night.  My dreams are elaborate, and filled with messages.  If my work load wasn’t so crazy right now, I would be writing these dreams down.  I know that there is some profound healing going on when I enter the dream state.

The days aren’t filled with as much spiritual growth.  While I would love to meditate and get in tune with my inner being (and outer universe), I am just too busy working on projects to take a break.

Take the Long Way Home

I was short on juices today because of my busy life, although I think this is for the best as I wind down the cleanse.  My body is telling me to drink a bit less juice and more water so I can heal deeper.  That was why I mentioned I want to try a water cleanse.  I feel we can heal our bodies/ spirits quicker with a prolonged water fast (I would go to a facility for a supervised event, and do not recommend this type of program at home).

Thank you for tuning in to this blog.  The days are winding down, because I am finishing on Day 23.  Therefore, I will take a break from blogging for now, and report back how I do with breaking the fast as well as the days that follow.  But stay tuned..I am going to release a show (hopefully tomorrow) where I talk about this journey with special guest host Cory Churko.

Much love to you.
