The more i learn about the moon the more fascinated i become with it. two months ago i started going to a new moon women’s circle, where we created intentions (best time to do this is on a new moon). it’s this friday, if you want to come, let me know ($20 donation). .
last month i started a journey to sync my w**b to the moon with a set of moon syncing teas (there are benefits to this, and why not?!?). you start drinking the teas one time during the new moon, then once during waxing, then once during full, then once during waning. scroll right to see the tea i am drinking now🌙▶️▶️
. by nature, women are lunar. it's no coincidence that the length of our menstrual cycles are synced up with the waxing and waning of the moon, occurring around every 28 days.
“if we are synced up with the moon's cycle, we will m********e around the new moon and ovulate around the full moon. and while your body may not already be in harmony with the moon, there are particular things to keep in mind, and practices to do, that can help regulate your cycle. when your body and the moon are synced up, your cycle won't feel like a pain-in-the-butt, but an opportunity to "go with the flow."☪️
here are some ways to regulate your cycle according to traditional chinese medicine (tcm), to help you "go with the flow."
1. look inward during the new moon.
if a woman's hormonal cycle is in sync with the moon, the time between the new moon and the full moon is when estrogen increases, ultimately culminating in ovulation at the full moon. for this woman, the new moon is the time of menstruation.
thus, the new moon is a great time for women to look inward, honor their bodies and assess their lives. what is working and what isn't working? it is a time to set intentions and to cleanse the body and mind of stale energy and stagnation.
🌝2. express yourself during the full moon.
the full moon is a time for full expression of who we are. in order to tap into the energy of the moon (with the goal to sync up your cycle and regulate it), many cultures — including tcm — advise is taking "a moon bath." in other words, go outside for at least fifteen minutes and soak in the beautiful moon.”
