I've decided to spend the weekend fasting. Mostly as a way to clear my body of toxins, but I still view it as a spiritual action. Something about fasting has always been spiritual to me.

Now don't start thinking this little squirrel is on a water only diet. That wouldn't be a healthy choice for me at this time due to my infection and such. So I'm on what is commonly known as a modified fast. Basically I'm allowed fresh fruits and veggies, juices and one small meal of brown rice in the evening. When I was younger, I would do fasts of water and juice only. Of course, that was back in the days before my car wreck and antibiotics.

I started this fast because I realized I've been on antibiotics for nearly a year now. At times the long use causes me to feel ill as long exposure can kill out good bacteria in your body and lower your immune system. So, while on this fast, I am drinking a probiotic lemon ginger tea each morning. My goal is to jump start my body for some extra healing.

Like I said earlier this is also a spiritual action, so this means I'm doing daily prayer and meditation. I'm reading some spiritual articles and keeping myself focused on my path. There is something about fasting that makes me feel strange to not pay extra attention to my spiritual side during the task. Maybe because I view it as a form of self discipline that is in line with spirituality.

 I'm hoping to keep this practice active in my life more often. After the weekend, I will wait a few weeks and repeat this fasting. I think it will very beneficial for me in so many ways.

A Little Too Normal

Life has become unusually normal for me. In fact, some might even say too normal. Nothing of true interest has been occurring and I'm always busy with regular life things. Most exciting things was getting to perform my first wedding as a Wiccan clergy, but even that doesn't seem all that strange anymore. Its like I've hit a spot where things are okay and all is well. Only I seem to almost find it a bit disturbing.

Maybe this little squirrel is just used to things that drive her nuts. lol.

Morning Walk

Lately if I have been up early enough in the mornings, I've been going on walks around the neighborhood. This, of course, started from Chi running off. I take food out with me to leave for the squirrels in the area in hopes that Chi will find it. Since she went missing, I had not seen her even with all the walks I have made. It caused me to be discouraged for a while and I wasn't making my walks as much. 

However, today I was up bright and early. I was worried that Chi might not be finding food without me leaving it out so as soon as there was some light in the sky out I went. I came across a squirrel that I see every day. I call him Chet as that is the best name I could come up with the second time I meet him. He really seems to like the food I leave out and watches me intently. After seeing him try to blend into the tree he was staring at me from, I noticed movement to the side of me. I turned to see a smaller squirrel running around in a tree. It sure looked a lot like Chi, but I couldn't be 100% sure. The morning light was getting brighter, however, it was not enough to see the colors in the little squirrel's fur. I tried to follow her, but she was just to quick for me to keep up. Her movements were very Chi like and were different from the fox squirrels I keep identifying around the neighborhood. So, I'm praying it was my Chi as that would mean she has been finding food and keeping warm. Either way, I left out some extra food at the base of the tree where I spotted her first. 

Who would have ever thought, I'd miss a squirrel so much?
