Our bodies are sacred reflections both of our species' genetic pattern and of our individual spirits. We must strive to keep our bodies and minds healthy and aligned. In this culture, it's almost entirely impossible to live a completely pure, unpolluted lifestyle. It's essential to cleanse one's body of toxins that have built up over a period of time. An ideal way to do this is to perform a juice fast for a couple days or engage in a different type of fast. If performing any sort of physical fast or bodily detoxification, light a yellow candle to represent burning away unhealthy energy, both physical and metaphysical, as the two are often interlinked. Cup the burning candle with your hands, saying something like:
As this candle burns, I perform this physical detoxification. May the alighting of this yellow wax signify the mutual cleansing of my body, spirit, and mind. Hail be, ever-changing universe. I ask that I be aligned to health, healing, and constant spiritual sustenance. So mote it be.
Though you have performed a physical and metaphysical detox, continue to be mindful of what you consume, as well as the situations you surround yourself with-mental health is just as important. Remain mindful of the origins of your food; you may even choose to eat only organic foods after researching genetic food modification and its politics, or you might become vegetarian or vegan after researching the reality of the welfare of our animal allies.
