Life itself consists in a cycles. First you´re born, you grow, maybe you have your own family eventually, you grow old and you die. The sun rises, moves over the sky and finally goes down. The moon goes from a new moon to a full moon. We as a human beings also follow a cycle, especially women. We have our period cycle that we are following. Or are we really following the cycle?
In the philosophy of Kundalini yoga we talk about the moon cycle. The phases of the moon have often been related to the phases of the menstrual cycle. Each month goes through a cycle as the moon and seasons of the year. It shifts, it changes and it feels different through the cycle. Have you thought about that you one day can feel very energetic and creative and the next day you feel introvert and another day you feel strong?
The ancient wisdom explains it like this:
A woman has eleven moon centers. These centers are located in different parts of your body, from the crown of your head to the sex organs. Each woman has a unique path through which the moon centers cycle. And the different centers are connected to different qualities and shifts through every 2nd day. Your moon center pattern doesn´t depend on the actual phase of the moon or your menstrual cycle.
This cycle can explain a lot why we act and feel in various ways. Why we one day from another can change our mind, maybe somewhat unpredictable. If you are aware of this it´s easier for you to accept things as they are and follow your cycle. One day can be perfect to call that difficult phone call you have postponed for ages. You feel strong and communicative. Another day is not the right day, because you feel more vulnerable.
So tuning in to you cycle can be a big help for you in your life. You do things that are right for you in the right moment. And that means putting less stress on yourself. Of course some stuff we need to do, but we don´t do it, because we have fears or obstacles, we need to cross that obstacle and do it. But do it when you are in tune with your stronger self.
