Working with the lunar cycles
It is obvious that we are not only one with nature, We are nature. Like any other animal, humans are a direct reflection of all the natural processes that make this earth spin and turn.
The waves in the ocean ebb and flow with the cycling of the moon. Given that more than half of our body weight is made up of water, it makes sense that the moon should have a similar effect on us.
In the growing world of wellbeing, it is important to have a variety of tools to choose from so you can try out which ones are best for your life.
One that has been around for ages, and only just gaining a foothold in popular culture, is working with the cycles of the moon to optimize your life.
Understanding the rotation of the moon will give you a head start in life. These celestial cycles can give you some insight into when to plant metaphorical seeds, when to switch to hermit mode, and how the lunar cycles reflect your menstrual cycle.
Back to basics
Before you learn how to use the moon's cycles to your advantage, you must first understand how it works.
Let's start at the beginning, shall we?
The first moon phase begins on the new moon. These nights are characterized by bright stars and planets, without the glow of the moon it is their time to shine.
As the moon grows, it goes through a "wax cycle". Like a pregnant belly, the moon gets bigger and bigger until it has reached its full runtime.
On this day, so lovingly known as full moon day, the glowing sphere is at the height of its visibility and illuminates the night sky with its familiar glow.
What comes up has to come down. When the moon moves away from its fullest point and returns to the beginning of its cycle, it is in its "waning phase".
Now that you know the basics, it is time to take a look at how you can use this technology to your advantage.
Maximize the lunar magic
Are you hoping for a promotion? Do you want to bring a new love interest into your life? Are you hoping to clear some cobwebs lingering in your subconscious?
It is time to bring in that lunar magic and enhance your manifestations.
The dark new moon calls for hermit times. So grab your candles, light your incense, and pull out your journal – it's time to work some spells.
The darkest night of the month is the most effective time to plant the seeds of your desires. Make yourself comfortable in your cozy cave and write freely about any intentions you want to set for the next lunar cycle.
Bury these intentions in your yard or set them on fire. Do whatever feels solemn in accordance with the life you are creating.
The next peak in the lunar cycle, the full moon, begs you to go out and be seen. Dance under its luminosity as you light up in the community and surround yourself with loved ones. This is the time to be with others, come out and play, just like the moon. Let yourself shine and shine as creativity in art, poetry and music pours from your soul.
For your health
Not only can the moon help you maximize your personal growth, but it can also increase your health and vitality.
Health advice given according to the lunar cycles dates back to ancient medical systems around the world, from China to Greece to the Mayans and beyond.
After you've rested and withdrawn during the new moon, the waking phase is the time to increase your food intake. Think of this as a pregnant person who takes the vitamins during pregnancy. Same idea. If you are deficient in vitamins or minerals, this is the best time to restore your reserves.
The full moon comes and goes, and when it fades, your appetite can decrease too. The decreasing phase accelerates the detoxification process in the body. If you've been thinking about a juice or raw food clean, this is the time! Stock up on fresh greens and goodies and be ready to remove some serious toxins.
If you really want to get wild you can give it a try Enema at home, This helps detoxify the liver and improve blood circulation.
In addition to using the phases of the moon, there are also certain “power days” on which you can strengthen your immunity and cell function through fasting. There are different types of fasts, which can mean water fasts, juice fasts, or days when you only eat lightly.
According to ancient yogic technology, these days are the new moon, the fourth day (after the new moon), the eleventh day, and the full moon.
While there is not yet any empirical data to support this (outside of hundreds of years of anecdotal evidence), proponents of these practices claim that there are specific secretions from the today Glandular system, This allows certain hormones to promote further detoxification.
Your personal lunar cycle
It is quite common for a woman's cycle to go down with that of the moon. Even if it's not directly synchronized, the phases represent the patterns through which our moonlight flows.
The start of your cycle begins with your period, similar to the new moon. Just like the moon, you can hide, groom, and attend to your personal needs. Take the time to rest, reflect, and make room for new seeds.
About a fortnight later while ovulation, You are in your personal full moon. You feel fertile and fluid, you walk through the crowd and light up the room just like the moon does with the sky. This is the day you might feel sexiest and there is no hiding place!
After you know the basics, it's time to put them into practice.
The longer you tune into these lunar cycles, the more obvious they become. Think of it as a biohacking tool, a free one at that!
