Moon & Beach
During a Full Moon, the world is filled with excess prana, or life force energy. Technological or mechanical glitches are notorious during Full Moons. Computer problems, car problems, appliances breaking.
For example, during this month’s full moon my ice maker in my fridge broke and the next month during a full moon my microwave broke.
Those who are traditional yogis don’t tend to practice during full moons because although we feel we “have tons of energy” to practice, it’s not a calm and centered energy. It’s more of a manic, chaotic energy and we are prone to emotional upset like crying or feeling very uncerented if we practice when the moon is full.
Conversely, during new moons where there is excess apana (downward pulling energy) we don’t typical practice because we are much more heavy-filling, sluggish, tired, and just don’t have the uplifting energy to sustain a nice practice.
But full moons are not all about glitches and insomnia and excess energy. Many people believe that Full Moons are a time of good luck and good fortune.
Good luck like the sun coming out a bit and being able to hit up the beach!
It’s been a little overcast but nothing like all the rain we had the last time we were here!
We used to go out on sunset sails and dive trips on those boats. Thinking about doing it again, actually!
From my last post about Redecorating my House here in Aruba, thanks for the kind words on my el cheapo redecorating efforts! The room feels so much bigger, and better, now that I made over the space and got a great deal on that new sofa.
Thanks for filling me in on how you like to redecorate and personalize your own spaces.
1. Have you noticed any full moon effects this month?
I have! Skylar has been a little moody the past few days. I find that kids are generally more in touch with natural world phenomenon than adults so not surprising there have been a few ahem moments.
And I have been staying up super late (common for me) but have had excess energy for my workouts but also feel a bit like my head is spinning and not totally a grounded energy.
Part of that could be the long journey and travel here to Aruba, but also, partially the full moon effects are at play, too I’d say.
2. When was the last time you were at the beach?
Tell me about it!
Have a great evening, everyone!
