The week before last, one of my clients invited me to join her and a group on a 72 hour water fast.
As soon as I received the invite, I was intrigued. Sorta....
My thoughts went from…
“How in good goddesses name do I do that?”
“Will I die?”
“What? You just drink water for 3 days straight?”
“Maybe. I wonder what that would be like?
“I would have group support. Hmmm.”
“I could do that. I’m an entrepreneur after all and have started and grown multiple businesses; can’t be any harder than that!”
And with that, nervous AND excited….
I was in. Committed.
No turning back.
One of my mantras for the past two years going on three is “Be my word.”
So when you commit to being your word, ya kinda have to stick with being your word. funny how that works.
Short story is… I completed 73 hours of fasting with a new perspective of my body and the brilliance of it.
I have been on a transformational journey with my body over the past two years, understanding and appreciating her better and this was another monumental learning of the magnificence of the human body.
AND without the wealth of the body.
We got no wealth of a business. Or much of anything else.
But the longer and more impressive story for me to share are the parallels I made about money mindset that were highlighted going through the fast AND reflecting on the fast and I would LOVE to share with you if you are open to receiving.
Three things about money mindset that can be learned by fasting
Less is more. I mean I drank water for 3 days (with electrolytes of course!)
Fasting opened my eyes wide open to how much focus and energy was available to me by resetting itself (after the hump of the first day.)
Less IS more when it comes to upleveling your money mindset. With everything right now feeling so EXTRA. To pull back, to contract, to reassess is the catalyst for quicker forward movement with money. One solid affirmation. One powerful shift in belief. One powerful action can be the thing that changes everything. Contraction is a good thing when it comes to money mindset to step into expansion of money making.
Because it requires you to distill down to one or a few things that will create the leap for more money. What is the one belief that you need to energize every day, focus on every day that will create your money moves in 2024?
AND expect a hump AND keep going.
I am the power. Fasting reinforced the fact that I am the power. I am not my mind or my body, there is something deeper than that within me that is connected to something larger than me that is assisting me in achieving the outcome I desire to have. The desire to connect with my body at a deeper level AND get to 72 hours.
I teach this so much in my work with clients in money work. It is required to know at a cellular level your own magnitude for having a desire and working towards it. I think women have an untapped level of power that is screaming to be unleashed. But because we have seen power in so many distorted ways, we cannot step into it.
Uplevel your money mindset by redefining your definition of power. The concept of NOT power OVER or UNDER. Power WITH and within. It is there> I promise you.
What do I want? That question came up a lot! It was loud and clear. I had no distraction of “oh, it's noon, let me go eat.” “Oh it’s 6PM, let me go eat.” I asked often throughout the 72 hours, “What do I need right now? What do I really want?” The clarity that comes with a 72 hour fast due to improved energy and focus, brain healing, and resetting dopamine receptors was off the charts for me.
AND when the time came to come to eating, it was from a place of intense nourishment and appreciation for food as healing. I never was taught that food was healing. I was taught food was bad.
Same with money. When you know what you want with your money and align it with your value system and you have clarity and fresh focus on it, money can be appreciated coming in and out of your life. Money is a good thing, not bad. It is not the root of all evil. It is the opportunity to change something, to be a steward of it and direct it. Money mindset opportunity here is to see money as a conduit to something else that is supportive of your life and life force energy.
So so much more came from this experience and I am grateful to be able to share it with you. I want to thank my client, Nancy Levin, and Dr. Mindy Pelz, who wrote the book Fast Like a Girl for opening me up to new levels of possibilities for a life and business of health AND wealth.
Have you done a 72 hour fast? What did you learn about your life and perhaps your money or business by going through it?
