Hi Sea-dove,

You DO NOT need to fast for experiences.. just meditate or do spiritual and energy work and in my experience I'm less likely to have spiritual experiences when fasting then if I'm just meditating.
It seems that Jesus, Elijah, Moses and other men did need it in order to experience 'divine revelations'. It is not a necessity, agreed. However, in the case of a long fast, sleep deprivation, or poor diet/malnourishment it does give possibility to it being an hallucination. If there's a 'god' I somehow doubt it is a necessity to starve or be unhealthy in order to 'connect'.

Hope you're well and recovered.
