Moonbathing



Moonbathing - where one actually sits outside and views the moon -  helps to balance all aspects of the body. It's incredibly healing.  Just as absorbing the rays of the sun is important to the body, so is absorbing the rays of the moon.  The Sun is more action oriented, and the moon is more receptive. Moonbathing helps one to become more sensitive, more receptive, and more still. It activates 'yin', and can help to balance someone who has too much 'yang' or too much fire or anger.


 During a full moon, the body's healing potential is at its peak, and the body's energy flow is activated and harmonized. Moonbathing accentuates that. Moonbathing also stimulates the pineal gland, a tiny gland that helps to regulate the sleeping/waking cycle, as well as many other body rhythms. When we go outside to see the moon, our bodies can more easily adjust when we are physically outside in nature picking up nature's signals, and visibly seeing the moon with the naked eye.

So, get thee outside and bathe in the moon! Or, at least gaze at it through an open window.
