A year ago in late September, a friend and I took off to Oahu Island in Hawaii for a 7 day juice fast. I can't begin to express just how magical the experience was.

The ocean has the most beautiful energy, washing away false negativity from all levels of our being. It was there that I fully connected to the deeper essence of who I am, and all that is real.

When you allow yourself the space and time to walk away from the illusions of day to day life, you see the clarity of what is truly authentic.

Breathing in vital life-force energy from the mineral-rich water while fasting gives the mind and body an opportunity to rest and rejuvenate on a deeper level, opening you up to a greater vision of what is real and what is possible.

You start to see yourself in a completely different light, and you see those around you for who they really are. Despite your natural desire to love and embrace the world, those who are not of a genuine heart inevitably begin to leave your life.

Connecting to the beauty of all that is, is such a profound experience it can forever shift us into a different frame of mind. We begin to live with genuine kindness, rather than from an ego driven mindset. That is our lesson! And that's how I have come to know spirituality.

If you ever get the chance to experience a juice fast in the midst of natural waters, you are in for a real treat!

Daily Juice Fast Menu:

Upon Waking - 20 oz pure, clean water
Mid Morning - 16 oz low-glycemic green juice
Early Afternoon - 8 oz coconut water
Mid Afternoon - 20 oz pure, clean water
Late Afternoon - 16 oz low-glycemic green juice

  1. Lovely, Mila. Hawaii has such a spiritual quality. What a place to do a juice fast. "Connecting to the beauty of all that is" is what I experienced juicing! Thanks for sharing the pictures, too!

  2. Hi Michelle, yes Hawaii is a beautiful and spiritual place! Glad you enjoyed the pics :-)


  3. Hello, Mila
    I am so happy that I have found your blog.
    Thank you for sharing your experience.
    I have started to eat predominantly raw since 2007 and I am still amazed by the diet(I mean the life style! :).
    I also have decided to study raw cuisine at the Living Light Culinary School like you and also at the Hippocrates(their educator program).
    (although for now I have no idea which I should enroll first...)
    Would it be ok to ask for your advice later about studying at the Living Light Culinary School?



  4. Sure thing Dana! I'd be happy to answer any of your questions :-)
