The Effects of Aligning your Life with the Moon
Unlock the ancient wisdom from our ancestors that has been long forgotten
By Bella Luna
Did you know that the moon cycle has a direct effect on your energy flow? It’s so simple yet so missed in today’s world – the Moon affects us A LOT! This is not new information, but ancient wisdom that has been forgotten. The Moon appears in religion, mythology, and mysticism, but today, it seems to only appear in science books. The Moon plays a significant role within both Greek and Roman mythology, in addition to ancient Egyptian paganism. There are many Gods and Goddesses related to the Moon and many powers attributed to its energy.
Ebbing & Flowing
The Moon continually ebbs & flows through phases of growth & decline, often interpreted as symbols of our own personal & spiritual development.
The Moon can be divided into two main phases, the waxing phase and the waning phase. The New and Full Moons signify the turning points between these two phases.
The period of build up from the New Moon to the Full Moon is referred to as the waxing phase, a time to make plans, take action, play, have fun, build momentum and excitement in your life.
While the steady decline from the Full Moon to the New Moon is the waning phase, a time to slow down, to retreat, let go, surrender and release, to rest and restore yourself.
"The Moon is the first milestone on the road to the stars".
Arthur C. Clarke
Bats in the Amazon
If you were to map your energy levels against this waxing and waning, you might be surprised at the correlation that occurs. I was.
While at university studying for my BSc in Wildlife Conservation, my final year dissertation project was to study bats in the Peruvian Amazon, and the effects of the Moon cycle on their behaviour and population sizes.
On completion of this study, and returning to my life in the UK, I began to notice something. Just like with the bats, there seemed to be a direct correlation between the Moon and my energy levels. When she appeared full, bright, and alive, I had lots of energy and would run around like a lunatic getting up to all sorts of mischief. And when she began to disappear again, so too did some of that energy, and I would find myself Netflix and chillin’ a whole lot more.
It didn’t take that long to notice this correlation and once I first saw it, it only became clearer as each phase passed. I found that in times of waning, I gave myself permission to rest more, and then during her waxing, I made a conscious effort to ride my energetic waves towards mischief and play.
It was comforting knowing that there was a reason behind me sometimes wanting to retreat and hide away from the world, knowing I wasn’t alone and that the Moon was there right alongside me.
Life seemed to go a lot more smoothly when I stopped fighting the natural rhythms inside me and starting aligning with them.
