Does the moon now have an influence on us humans or is this all just hocus-pocus? We will tell you how you can use the power of the moon for your personality development. Although it is scientifically proven that Ebb and flow of the moon phases can be influenced. Nevertheless, the moon does not have such a great influence on gravity as would be felt in the human body. After all, we are made up of water to a large extent.
The power of the full moon
Many people still believe in the power of the full moon today. Again and again it is claimed that the glow of the shining sphere drives sleepwalkers to the outside. It causes sleep disturbances, increases the number of crimes and traffic accidents as well as love lust and aggressions and makes babies restless - they say. However, serious scientific evidence of such effects of the moon on the psyche has never been provided.
Align your personality development with the moon
Nevertheless, there is a power emanating from the moon that you can use for yourself. We will show you how to observe yourself and flow with the phases to get to know yourself and your soul needs better. Because deep inside us, there is a rhythm. Our body knows it exactly. It carries us. It guides us. It connects us to what we are not able to see with the naked eye. The connection with nature is greater than we think. For example, it still influences the female cycle today. Studies actually show a higher rate of ovulation during the full moon or new moon and consequently a higher rate of menstruation at these times. The women of the Zambezi tribe in Africa, for example, have long known of this very connection: Their houses have an opening to let in the light of the full moon.
The moon: symbol of your dynamism and eternity of your life
There are even yoga practices that align their exercises with the moon. "For the moon fills with light and empties into darkness. It symbolizes the dynamism and eternity of life!"
New moon - time of purification
The new moon is a time of purification from which we can learn an incredible amount. This time has the potential to bring fresh insights into our lives, we dream even more. At new moon, experts recommend supporting your body with gentle yoga exercises.
- Practice: Take a few deep breaths to prepare yourself. Now inhale and lift your arms above your head, lift your buttocks from your heels as well. When breathing out, lean forward from the hips - rest your arms and head on the floor. This sequence is wonderful for letting the breath flow and filling the body with energy and warmth.
waxing moon - brings new energy for your personality development
The waxing moon begins to give us strength and brings us new energy of regeneration. It wakes us gently from hibernation. The waxing moon causes us to become more self-confident, motivated and enthusiastic. After a period of introspection, this phase seems light, your energy level rises automatically.
- Exercise: Swing your legs up and bend your elbows to place your sacrum in the palms of your hands. The fingers point upwards. If possible, drop your legs even further back. This shoulderstand is the queen of the yoga poses - it nourishes the thyroid gland as well as the other hormonal organs. The shoulderstand strengthens your abdominal organs, especially the uterus, and relieves pressure on the pelvic floor.
Full moon - time of acceptance and reception
The Full Moon is the natural time to celebrate and enjoy our warmth! It is the time of accepting and receiving. We can get more involved with our fellow human beings, care for them and have deep conversations. We can express ourselves better and show compassion. The yoga practice around the full moon is especially exciting.
- Exercise: Start in the looking down dog. Now lift your left leg and let your foot fall gently towards the vessel. Stretch your hip parallel to the ceiling. Let your left foot sink further towards the floor, roll your left hip up and lift your left hand off the floor. With this pose you open up your whole body for even more energy and balance.
waning moon - creative phase
The time of the decrescent moon is a time of creativity. Now we have the possibility to access the information that is processed outside our consciousness. Now the access to our subconscious becomes easier and creative jumps are even more possible.
- Exercise: While sitting, bend your right leg forward and your left leg backward. Form a symbolic 4 by placing your right foot in front of your left thigh and park your left foot near your left buttock. By raising your arm you can stretch your sides, and by holding on to the opposite knee you can gently rotate your spine. With this exercise you release tensions in the muscles of the spine. You get the circulation of your liver, kidneys and adrenal glands going - this detoxifies and cleanses at the same time.
Use the moon phases for your personality development
Use the individual Moon phases for your personal development. Because especially the fourth moon phase, the time of the waning moon, is ideal for manifesting your wishes. Use the new energy that you were allowed to gain from the waxing moon to realise your vision now. Who do you want to be? Where do you see yourself in six months? How do you walk, what do you stand for? And above all: How does the new me feel? Feel this power in your whole body, in every single pore. Now, if you like, grab a pen and some paper. Sort your thoughts. Now you may dream. Think big! Visualize. And then let go! More and more and more. Trust it to be magical!
