“Fasting develops your will power. The purpose of fasting is to cleanse the body and transform the solar plexus chakra. The objective is to become more refined and go from dense vibrational energies, slower vibrational energies, to more subtle, more refined more potent energies and have more control over the emotions so the lower chakra will be regulated by the higher chakras.” – Beyond the Mind (Grand Master Cho Cook Suy)
There are times in our lives when we may find ourselves feeling weighed down, tired and an overall density in our bodies that often times is related to an imbalanced solar plexus chakra. When the lower chakras are over dominant, we have given up the authority of the higher self and allowed our emotions to take control over our decision making process rather than our higher self our the higher soul.
Positive and Negative Lower Emotions
One example of this is when we find ourselves craving snacks throughout the day, we are being governs by our lower chakra tendencies which our driven by our emotions. The solar plexus chakra houses both the positive and negative lower emotions. This chakra is also the center of courage, daring, strong drive, perseverance and the desire to win.
- Positive lower emotions include ambition, daring, perseverance, strength, righteous indignation, justice and fairness.
- But when there is a blockage and the negative emotions are running the show, one may experience lack of confidence insecurity, self-esteem uses, anger, frustration, stress and worry.
The Power of Fasting to Connect with Higher Soul
Fasting is a great way to restore alignment, harmony and balance in this area.
Fasting helps us to develop a stronger connection to the higher soul, so the higher self or “the parent” has control over the lower tendencies “the children”. When the children or lower tendencies are in control of our decision making processes, we have short term pleasure and long term pain. When the “parent” or the higher soul is running the show, life is better long term, and we will find more success in the long run. We have to keep connection to the higher will, Ajna chakra to control the lower vehicles.
Types of Fasting for Strengthening Will Power
There are many type of fasting that we can use to strengthen this connection, strengthen our will power and transform the solar plexus chakra. Here are couple:
- Intermittent Fasting Daily – 14-18 hours each day of no food
- 1 Day a Week of Water Fasting or
- 1 Day a Week Dry Fasting (no food/no water)
- Juice Fasting
As you are choosing not to eat and drink only water you are developing a stronger connection to your higher soul. Any one of these fasting practiced is a great way to strengthen our will power that will show up in every area of our life. This also will cleanse the solar plexus and allow the small and large intestines to renew itself because it has time to process toxins rather than food.
This is a great practice to gain control over our physical body, emotional body and mental body. You control the physical body by exercising your will to not give into cravings and eat. You are controlling your emotional body to calm down by not using food as a soothing mechanism. You are controlling your thoughts by rather than focusing on how hungry you are, you can choose to focus of things to be grateful for, something positive and something new to spend your time on to had value to the world.
When we fast we are transforming our solar plexus chakra, when we transform something, you connect it to the higher self, the higher soul.
