|Nine-day cleanse diet from Yogananda|
Galina's fasting topic reminded me of the Paramahansa Yogananda 9 day cleanse I have done a few times over the years. He called it a method for, "rejuvenating the body cells and and awakening the latent powers of the mind and inner forces of the soul." Swami Kriyananda of the Ananda organisation released the written notes of this diet a few years back.
Food for one whole day consists of:
The beverage may be prepared in one of two ways
Method 2) Use same ingredients but do not cook them. Just strain them after putting them through a food processor ( I used a juicer machine when I did it htis way)
Drink one cup of the beverage (either method) at each of the 3 daily meals. The cooked version produces a bland broth, the raw version , like fresh carrot juice - I like the raw version, also easier to prepare.
The day might go something like this:
There is a lot of food here for a day, however when I first tried it I made the mistake of doing it in winter and became very, very cold (and irritable and tired!), but next time it was late spring and then summer and so was not a problem.
It really lightened me up and allowed a lovely sensibility to prana to come through. I found it very hard to do mentally but the rewards were worth it.
Love to all
