Yoga buffs around the world have experientially revealed how the New Moon is a godsend opportunity to transform the inner self and welcome the energy of healing through meditation. A New moon is known to alter the accumulation of negative energy in the build up to and after the New moon.
With its proximity to Earth being lesser than that of the Sun, the moon does exert a gravitational influence on our planet and many behavioural scientists argue with regard to the New moon’s effect on humans that humans are approximately 75% water and with the moon's ability to impact the ocean/tides infers that it may very well have the same subtle affect on us.
Spiritually speaking, the influence of the New Moon on our mental sphere (feelings, emotions and desires) originates from the thought stream that is flowing at a subconscious level.
The New Moon is said to catalyse the mental process, speeding up the flow of conscious thoughts as well as pulling sub-conscious ones to the surface/conscious mind. this may be a great trigger for spiritual seekers lending a special advantage, a greater incentive to be a part of a New Moon meditation.
Important to note that astrologically speaking, each one of us is born in a different lunar phase and different moon placements can affect each individual differently. This is probably the reason why a scientific validation of the moon's influence on a universal audience is hard to come by - the personal variances are simply too vast.
For those who deem the energy of the moon to be something of a bad luck for them, participating in a New moon meditation is one of the best opportunities to alter their jinx. The New Moon Meditation has brought great healing outcomes for its sincere participants but by participating in the moon’s cycles of creation (new moon) and completion (full moon), we have the chance to create a more peaceful life for ourself, others and the planet. The New moon is the perfect moment to let go of the factors in your life that have been negatively impacting us as well as acknowledge what we have accomplished and are thankful for since the previous New moon. Meditating during the New moon provides an opportunity to connect deeply with our inner wisdom and with nature.
