I'm frustrated by slow progress (although my emotional health has improved a little bit). So I'm going to experiment with combining the subtle energy healing with what's called intermittent fasting, which means for example eating 6 days in a week and fasting 1 day, and repeating it for a couple of months. Or like in this scientifically tested method:
"... a study in the June 5 issue of the Cell Stem Cell shows that cycles of prolonged fasting not only protect against immune system damage ... but also induce immune system regeneration, shifting stem cells from a dormant state to a state of self-renewal." -- https://news.usc.edu/63669/fasting-trig ... ne-system/https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qIm1oXQ-UeI
My idea is that when eating food all the time, then the body is habitually fully occupied with processing the food, and mindfulness practice and things like that have difficulty being effective. Isn't energy healing capable of dealing with food? I think definitely it is, but only at more advanced levels. Our bodies and minds are heavily conditioned to process food all the time so for beginners one might have to help the practice and make it easier for subtle energy to start flowing.
EDIT: Hmm... I found this: "Prolonged fasting (PF) lasting 48–120 hr reduces progrowth signaling and activates pathways that enhance cellular resistance to toxins in mice and humans (Fontana et al., 2010, Guevara-Aguirre et al., 2011, Holzenberger et al., 2003, Lee and Longo, 2011, Longo et al., 1997). The physiological changes caused by PF are much more pronounced than those caused by calorie restriction or fasting lasting 24 hours or less in part because of the requirement to fully switch to a fat- and ketone bodies-based catabolism after glycogen reserves are depleted during PF (Longo and Mattson, 2014)." -- http://www.cell.com/cell-stem-cell/fulltext/S1934-5909(14)00151-9
So at least 2 days fasting for more benefits than less than 24 hours fasting. That can probably be changed with Biology of Belief but that takes a lot of subconscious change. I think I will start with 3 days fasting per week. That's really hardcore.
(Can even be dangerous for some people so be careful.) And I heard that on day 2 or 3 the feelings of hunger and starvation are worse. Not good. I will try mindfulness to see if the suffering can be replaced by a peaceful and nice feeling, at least after a while. If there is suffering for more than two weeks I will probably give up the experiment, because to me that's a warning signal that it's unhealthy overall.
