Do you lose sleep on the full moon?
Do you have heightened energy on the new moon?
Balance and align with the cycle and phases of the moon with crystals to support your growth and abundance.
Not only does the moon grace our night skies but it influences the tides. The gravitational pull of the moon creates tidal forces in our oceans resulting in high and low tides. High tides are caused by the moon’s pull, and an increased flow of water is created closer to the moon resulting in a tide. The waters of the high tide follow the moon.
Human bodies are at least 60% water. The concept of the Luna Effect suggests that the phases of the moon influence living creatures’ behavior including mood and sleep patterns with research suggesting that the full moon can increase insomnia. Mental health has also been linked with the moon, with the full moon believed to increase aggressive behavior. Human association with the moon has woven itself through our future, the folklore of the werewolf tells of the full moon as the trigger for transformation. The word “lunatic” comes from the Latin word luna, referring to the moon. Police stations and emergency wards in hospitals have for years increased staff levels on the full moon due to the increase in cases.
The moon can harness our oceans and wield our tides, the moon phases are associated with varying energies and influence us in different ways. Understanding is the first step, if we acknowledge the relationship then we can be aware, prepare, and find support where and when we need it.
The moon’s cycle consists of eight phases which take twenty-nine and a half days to complete. The phase of the moon is determined by the illuminated part of the moon as visible from earth.
Crystals to support you to align with the moon phases
Each moon phase influences us in different ways. The energy resonated during each phase can be balanced by carrying, wearing, or surrounding ourselves with crystals to counter undesired energies and amplify desired energies. By aligning with the radiated energy frequency of the moon, we can create balance and synchronicity with the moon’s cycle, benefiting from her energies.
The new moon welcomes rebirth it invites new beginnings and opportunities. What new ventures are you seeking? To welcome the new energies into your life ensure that you are supporting your endeavors with self-care and nurturing so that you are ready to receive. Both the sun and moon are on the same side of the earth during the new moon. Whilst this is a time of new journeys, also give yourself time to heal, cleanse, and release the old and gain closure before embracing the new. The new moon is a time to recharge and refocus.
