It happens all too often – one day you feel like Aphrodite herself, the next you can hardly stand the way you look. From one fleeting moment to the next – one hardly ever knows what to expect or feel – as a woman. It sometimes gives one an impression of a possible candidacy for President of Loonyville. But wait… according to yogic philosophy, there is a perfect explanation for the emotional rollercoasters women face daily.
It All Has To Do With The Moon
If 60% of our bodies are made up of water, it comes as no surprise that some have speculated on the effect of the moon on human behaviour – just like it does on the tides of the ocean. And even looking at the origins of the word Lunacy – we find the word Lunar (relating to the moon) lingering. Although conclusive evidence of overall behavioural changes has not been found, many studies theorise and show some sleeping issues for participants during new and full moons. And if we look at history, we find most Greek and Roman philosophers suggesting a huge role the moon has on the changing chemistry of our brains. This belief extends to yogic science as well – where a firm belief that the moon has great effects on emotions and this is especially true for women.
The 11 Moon Points Of A Woman
During a 28 day cycle, women go through a whopping 11 different moods. These moods can be found at different centres of the body. According to Kundalini Yoga and Yogi Bhajan’s teachings, when tuned into the body, one can actually feel the position of these moods. This type of awareness brings about a tremendous understanding allowing women to control and balance seeming irrational moods. Each mood lasts about two and half days at each point and here’s where you can find them and what you will feel:
- Arcline – Confident and Self-assured.
- Navel Center – Security issues, Aggressive and Intimidating
- Thighs – High Energy and Productive
- Earlobes -Analytical
- Clitoris – Charming, Talkative, Sociable and Outgoing.
- Vagina – Social but on a deeper level
- Back of the neck – Romantic
- Breasts – Compassionate and Heart-centered
- Lips – Communicative
- Cheeks – Emotional
- Eyebrows – Imaginative and Creative
Each woman has her own sequence and being able to become aware of this sequence connects you to a power and strength sometimes lost during the misunderstanding of the changing moods.
