Support During The New Moon Cycle

Originally uploaded by kimbar
This is for some of you who are very sensitive to the cycles of the moon.

At this time of the month that I refer to as the New Moon Cycle which is 3 days before the new moon, the new moon and 3 days after the new moon you may be particularly sensitive.

You might notice that your feelings are a bit more edgy or ragged and this is because you are not receiving your normal nurturing from the moon. The moon does nurture your feminine side and it doesn't matter whether you're a man or a woman.

Therefore for those of you who are particularly sensitive to moon energy this is a time when you need to have an alternative. This is the best alternative and the simplest one that I have to offer.

I recommend that you go out sometime during the day. It doesn't have to be noon or any specific time but it would be helpful during the New Moon Cycle if you can go out and close your eyes but look towards the sky where the sun is.

Keep your eyes closed so your eyes are not affected. If it is a cloudy day but the sun is bright behind the clouds you can keep your eyes open but if you wish or if the clouds are thin and present sometimes over the sun and not present other times then close your eyes and look at the sun and just breathe in and out normally - 10 breaths ought to do it. If you're a little rushed for time you can take 3 deep breaths and slowly let them out.

Generally speaking this is something that will give you more strength but it will also give you more light. You can do this once a day during the New Moon Cycle and it will help your strength, your balance, to a lesser degree but present your co-ordination - yes - and it will nurture your spirit. That's what I recommend. Goodlife.

Thank you for sharing Robert. I've noticed that I can get edgy even angry at the New Moon and Full Moon (I'm sure that planetary alignments also have an added influence). Sometimes the lunar quarters seem to have some effect too...
How is your plant spirit book project evolving?

Robert Shapiro said...

Hi Alchemille, very good to hear from you. I have to say that my publisher and I have not been working on the plant book lately - alas - and this is going to sound a bit dotty to you but I don't really remember what book we're working on - whoops.

It's been a while since we've actually focused on a book. We've been doing stuff for the magazine and other things. So I suppose I have to say - ask me this question again in a month or two when maybe the fog will have cleared up from the recesses of my memory :-)

I must say however that the project is dear to my heart and I am certainly hopeful that we'll get back on it - though we have actually done quite a bit of material already - probably somewhere in the neighborhood of several hundred pages - so we'll see. Goodlife.

Hi again Robert!
Sorry to read that you had to drop our of facebook...I don't use it much myself because I find it very buggy and annoying.
I prefer the comfort of my own blog ;).
