in other news- today is day 30 without any food. 10 Days left of
I feel tired, emotional, and I find myself describing food ads as if it were porn to my friends and family.
And then I discovered the origin of the shift- day thirty surprised me by throwing a mooncycle my way. To be quite honest, in my experience and from the feedback of others, fasting beyond twenty days seems to halt the personal rhythm cycles
....yet here I am. Bloated. Hungry. Emotional. And craving dark chocolate sea salt caramels.
I need to adjust a few things to meet my body where it is at- increase water intake, hit the bed earlier and longer, and perhaps a few naps here and there. Depending on how I feel in over the next few days, I may include a glass of broth for some sodium. Fasting is never about depleting. It’s about cleansing and restoring. So I have to be careful that I don’t deplete myself during the next five days.
Pixie Campbell of Soulodge once described being in the season of the West as tumbling in the waves. I’m feeling this. Tumbling and smoothing out day after day, while mama ocean holds me. I still feel the rough edges, but I think it is because I fight it. So I’m going to relax and just let the emotions surface so I can find my way to the North by the time this adventure is over.
Fortunately, the next ten days won’t be in isolation. Daughters of Earth kicks off tomorrow. My brother and his family are coming up to the island for a few days. And I’ll be traveling back to Vancouver in a week to wrap up loose ends with our old property and to meet Tyler in Portland before we head back up to the island together, finally.
…somehow, somewhere, I’m determined to sneak an Ikea trip in there.
As for now, I’ll be under a mess of quilts, bloated and whining to the cats and the ghost on how I need chocolate and a heating pad.
