Sweat Lodge and Energy

Sweat Lodge and Energy

Postby LC » Fri May 31, 2019 8:29 pm

I attended a ceremony and a sweat lodge. It went great and after exiting I was thrown a bucket of water front and back to cleanse everything after being in there. I had plenty of water during this time to stay hydrated. Probably about 30-45 minutes I got so hungry I had to eat something or be sick. I went straight to bed when I got back and ended up sleeping most of the next day. No one else had these issues but me.
What should I do next time to make sure the hunger and sleeping all day doesn’t happen?

Thanks!

Isn't the purpose of a cleanse to remove the accumulation of physical toxins? The Body needs to rest afterwards. It's had a workout! As for hunger - how long was it since your previous meal? Bring a fruit or veg snack. What do the sweat lodge operators suggest?

I had a light meal about 6 hours before I got super hungry. I know them personally but I didn’t say anything about it the next day. I’m the youngest, less experienced in witchcraft/occult, and the only female. I didn’t want to seem weak or anything like that.

If the sweat ceremony leaders are knowledgeable they're the one's to advise you so discuss the experience.

Not regretting it... the body only does things once... guilty mind's are otherwise as you, well, know.

not only that, it would be the responsible thing for them to do.

Was this your first sweat lodge? In any case, sounds like perhaps you released quite a bit of toxins. And the body does need a recoup period afterwards. As for hungry,...a meal six hours prior? I'd be freaking starving too.
I used to hold sweats at my other house (no room here) and I've seen all kinds of thigs like people bailing out (no shame there, know your limits) or getting sick, or spontaneously be ridden by a God or Goddess, near misses with the fire pit or the the rocks inside. But we always had grazing (like small healthy snacks) feast afterwards. Don't be so hard on yourself, sounds like it did what it was supposed to do.

It was my first one. One of the guys was leading it. He has done a lot and led a few. I was in a a small corner and I almost lost my balance and fell in the hole when I was getting out. I’m not the most graceful and I tend to trip on air. I did enjoy it. I found it peaceful and grounding. I think I could have stayed in there longer but didn’t want to push my luck.
