From Full Moon to New Moon
During the fourteen day period from which the Moon travels from its fullest to the beginning of a new lunar cycle, there is a force at work on the body which supports certain preventative or curative measures. This « withdrawing » force gradually strengthens, becoming more effective as it approaches the New Moon.
During this two week period our bodies capacity for detoxification is at its best. As the Moon enters this waning phase our bodies are ready to release and detoxify, sweat out and breathe out. Our perspiration is simply more effective at carrying unwanted toxins out of the body; so this is a great time for saunas or a sweat lodge. Or you may simply observe that your perspiration smells more during this time! This same force also dries out, consolidates, invites us to take action (set intensions – giving up any addictive habit during this time, will simply be easier) and initiates the expenditure of energy; the outward flow of Prana from the body, known as Apana moves upwards and outwards, making us more active.
With the division of our medical practises into specialities our « age » is loosing touch with the whole picture. So many illnesses, physical as well as mental imbalances and disorders are exclusively symptoms of poisoning or irradiation of the entire body. Dare I say all medical practitioners – from dentists to orthopaedic specialists would serve better their patients if they included detoxifying measures. Taking the responsibility of our own health leads us towards a greater sense freedom, making us « lighter » both physically and spiritually but also as a financial burden on social security.
The effect of the waning Moon is even evident in the Household: all cleaning, polishing, and washing is more effective and problem free. Don’t take my word for it observe.
Let us take the example of the car engine – not one of us would support the practise of adding new oil to the old.. or tries removing rust with a car wash!!
