I am in starting phases of fasting. I will be doing a juice fast for 3 sunrises to sundowns. My main motivation for this fasting is purely physical (for health, detox). But the closer i get to the official fasting experience the more i'm thinking that i'd like to reap all the benefits and possibly make this a spiritual adventure for me as well. I have never fasted before so this will all be new.
So my questions are: how do i make this a spiritual experience? does it require extra meditation and/or prayer? do you have any tips or suggestions on how to get (and give) the best from this experience? Anything else?
Please keep in mind that i have 2 young children (4 and 5), so things like all day meditation just simply aren't possible.

I havent fasted before, but I've watched my mother do it quite a few times. She usually (during her spiritual fast) drinks lots of water, prays, meditate, restricts from the tv, phone calls and limits her social interaction.
