    I hear this all the time.. But everyone is always as vague as this question.. What Spiritual Advancement are people referring to? I don't even think they know. They have just heard that they need to Cleanse, and Detox, otherwise they can't have spiritual advancement. Well how can you advance what you don't know you are advancing?

    Do you need it to gain enlightenment, strong connection with spirit? What exactly is this Spiritual Advancement?

    It's probably me wording it wrong again, what I mean is do you think it's necessary to cleanse/detox beforeyou begin any form of spiritual advancement or development.

    I didn't need to use the word advancement at all I suppose, because every advancement is a development, apologies if I confused you, it's me being my usual dim self waffling when I should be asleep :grin:

    I wasn't meaning should I cleanse/detox before developing mediumship, I just meant any spiritual development in general, from beginning a development group for the first time to sitting for meditation or even beginning healing or reiki

    Well for me, I have found that avoiding food or drink (especially sugar) for about an hour before attempting to meditate or connect to spirit is helpful. I feel less grounded and so it's easier to make that connection.

    That said, I do think that the rituals, white lighting, the cleansings, are all simply ways of focusing our minds and our own inherent power. Everyone seems to have something different that they like to do, but they all work. It's easier to deal with the familiar isn't it, rather than trying to wrap our heads around the immensity of the power and energy out there. Just an easier way of manipulating that energy and bringing your intent to bear on the situation.

    I don't know if it's right - just my opinion.

    Like I said prior it's all a matter of what you are planning on achieving. If you plan on meditating, or communing with spirit. You will have a better success rate on an emptier stomach than you would with a full stomach.

    When you are full you will not be able to fully concentrate. Plus foods that are dense, like meats, will detract you and ground you. Preventing you from being more open. Being too empty, and starving you will not be able to meditate properly either. For it's hard to focus and concentrate when you are thinking about food, and your stomach is growling.
