Like a magnet, the moon pulls on the earth and affects the tides of the ocean. Like the earth – the human body is composed of about 85 % water and so we too are affected by the energies of the moon. The full moon affects the deep ocean of our emotional self – pulling buried emotions to the surface of our consciousness. During this time, the barriers to the subconscious mind drop to release the vibrations of the past through memories, emotions, buried hurts and pain. If you are aware, this is an opportunity to bring into the light hidden aspects of yourself.
The moon also represents our deeply mysterious feminine nature – whether you are in the male or female form in this incarnation. This would be a good time for you to be in touch with your sensitivity and receptive to messages from the dream world.
Mudra: Put your hands at the center of your chest with corresponding fingers touching. There is a space between the palms. Fingertips point up making a tee pee with your hands. Thumbs touch too. Look at the tip of your nose and breathe 4 times per minute: inhale 5 secs, hold 5 sec, exhale for 5 sec.
Continue for 11 minutes.
