Periodic fasting can help clear up the mind and strengthen the body and the spirit.Ezra Taft Benson
Following last week’s post about spiritual fasting, I have been getting questions from people about intermittent fasting and how to incorporate it into one’s spiritual practice. Rather than keep answering individual questions about this, I thought to myself, ‘Why don’t I put together a guide and invite people to join in a 21-Day Intermittent Fasting Challenge to try it for themselves and discover the amazing benefits of fasting for Mind-Body-Spirit?’
So I did just that and put together a 10-page PDF guide to intermittent fasting for mind-body-spirit. The timing for this challenge is in the 21 days leading up to the equinox on 21 March – an ideal time for transformation and awakenings. In other words, we start on 1 March and you are welcome to join us in the SWIFT community on FB or you can do this on your own, if you prefer.

In the FREE Equinox 2019 Intermittent Fasting guide that you can download here, you will not only find an introduction to the basics of intermittent fasting, you will also get some tips on how to make this part of your spiritual practice, as well as how to set goals for mind-body-spirit transformation.

The intent over this 21-day intermittent fasting period, is to eliminate one specific bad habit/thought pattern and to replace it with another habit or practice that makes you feel as if you are winning at life.
Anybody wanting to join in this challenge simply to be held accountable for weight loss goals is very welcome to do so!
The guide contains a simple layout for a daily divinatory practice during the 21-day intermittent fasting journey. However, this is an optional practice and aimed more at those of my readers who enjoy this type of thing and use it as part of their daily spiritual practice. The important thing is to journal your experience – How you do it is less important.
Fasting of the body is food for the soul.John Chrysostom
