Fasting for Love: A Yoga Perspective

Vishwanath Iyer

Often described as a maverick, rebel Yogi, speaker, author, actor, workout junkie, coach and entrepreneur, Vish is a rare cocktail of spirituality, science and business. His own 30-year meditation practice - combined with a Brahmin family lineage that has produced several generations of Vedic Yoga scholars & masters - has instilled in Vish a diehard belief that solutions to all human problems (including finding romantic love) lay in Yoga meditation and the Yoga lifestyle.

Here in America we are told to do many things to attract
true love. “Get a good job.” “Buy a fancy car.” Or “Lose some weight and get a
makeover.” But very few people, if any, in the western world will suggest
fasting to attract love. When we think of fasting it might conjure images of
monks cloistered away in monasteries, fasting for weeks on end in the hopes it
brings a vision from God. In the western world we live under this assumption
that fasting is only for very religious and holy people, not the average person
walking on the street. The truth is, fasting is an incredibly powerful
scientific tool that can help you attract the love of your dreams.

First of all, we need to understand what fasting is. On a
daily basis we eat three meals a day with snacks in between. The stomach is
working 24/7 and gets no rest. It takes a lot of energy to make energy. The Yoga
masters tell us that instead of using up all the energy for digestion, through
fasting that energy can go towards healing. Fasting is also a tune up for the
stomach because all the excess prana goes into healing instead of digestion.
Then when you set an intention the mind makes it so because we are so powerful.
When I was younger I set my intention to one day work in America, and now I do.
Every thought has power, and has the power to become reality. Because 24/7
digestion can lower the levels of prana we don’t have enough prana to
materialize our dreams.

Fasting is known as one of the most powerful ways to change
your karma. Through fasting you can have healing, better digestion, and get rid
of toxins that have lived in your body for years. Fasting purifies the blood.
After fasting the blood has more oxygen so you don’t feel so drowsy and blood
pressure comes back to normal. From a psychological perspective you start
feeling good. From a spiritual perspective it changes your karma. Once you
start feeling happy, it changes your karma, you start feeling more in control.
Your deepest karma has the ability to be positively changed through fasting.
After fasting your outlook towards the world changes. I have personally been
fasting for years and have coached many people on fasting, and they end up finding
love because fasting is one of the most powerful ways to increase magnetisim.

Now that we have discussed the benefits of fasting, what are
the steps a person takes to fast properly? Start with one day a week and one
night. Just fast on fresh juice from fruit. And slowly build it up to two days.
Over a period of six months you will get rid most toxins from your body. It
really helps you make clear decisions, especially regarding love. From a yoga
perspective you can build up so much magnetism, you can attract your soul mate,
your spirit follows you, whatever intention you set it will be so.

Why would someone want to fast to increase their magnetism
and attract true love? In Indian Yoga culture it is a very normal and accepted
technique to fast for love. Fasting is a very powerful tool and has been used
in yoga culture for thousands of years. You can fast for many reasons, to get a
good job or purely for health reasons.

Yoga Wisdom:

Fasting is an extremely powerful tool to help
you attract love.

Our body uses up a lot of prana and energy
during digestion.

When we fast the energy we use for digestion
instead goes to healing and manifesting our intentions.

Fasting is one of the most powerful ways to
change your karma.

Fasting has several physiological benefits as
well as psychological ones.

Start fasting one day and night a week on juice
from fruits and slowly build up to more days over time.

After a period of 6 months your body will be
cleaned of toxins.

Fasting has been used for thousands of years.
