7 Ways This Intense Full Moon Will Affect Your Mind & Body
This is a year of radical energy shifts and cosmic changes. Soon, one of the most important comic events is coming and we should be prepared! It is the 29th April Pink Full Moon- this cosmic event is expected to have a serious impact on all of us.
In this article, we share the 7 most common ways how the full moon may affect both our bodies and minds:
1. THE FULL MOON CONTROLS MENSTRUATION
Well, the moon has a lot do to with the women’s cycles. Since ancient time women were connected to the moon and the old principles of fertility. However, the science confirms the connection.While the moon’s cycle is fixed at about 29.5 days, a woman gets her period on average every 28 days (though this varies from person to person). Despite this intriguing coincidence, there is no hard evidence supporting that the moon and menstruation are connected in any way.Studies are inconclusive as to whether more women have their period around the time of the full moon, and whether it would be conclusive of anything at all. So if by chance you happen to get your period early on a full moon, it’s probably stress and not some mystical lunar power that is making you grab a tampon early.
2. THE FULL MOON INCREASES FERTILITY AND BIRTHS
So, we continue with the ancient concepts and traditions in the world of spirituality. The statistics are clear- the most baby-booms are always between the two full moons. This is the period where women are most fertile as they use the positive vibration from the moon and the sun.
3. THE MOON CAUSES SLEEP DEPRIVATION
The moon has a direct influence on our sleep cycles. The science still hasn’t confirmed it, but it seems that the moon changes could drastically affect those who suffer from insomnia.No viable significant correlations have been found between the full and sleeplessness, so you are just as likely to get a peaceful night’s rest during a full moon, then other lunar stages.
4. THE MOON CAN TRIGGER EPILEPTIC SEIZURES
Those who suffer from epilepsy are having a true blessing in the form of Moon. In the past, people blamed for witchcraft those who used the power of moon and read the cycles. During history, the fear of moon escalated. After hearing patients frequently blaming the full moon for their seizures, Dr. Selim Benbadis, MD, associate professor of neurology and neurosurgery at the USF College of Medicine attempted to find a scientific correlation.
5. THE FULL MOON MAKES US CRAZY
This also is an ancient belief. Truly, the full moon has a significant influence on our emotional stability during the time of energy shifts. However, that ‘lunacy’ is just emotional disbalance in the struggle to enlightened and truly acknowledge ourselves. The energy of the full moon gives us insight and strength to dig deeper into our souls and search for more.
6. THE FULL MOON CAUSES ANIMAL ATTACKS
This is just a belief that is connected with some concepts of mystical creatures who shapeshift during the full moon. However, this might be accurate in some way- animals behave differently during the full moon period.One study published in the British Medical Journal stated that bites from animals sent twice as frequent in a British emergency room during a full moon, while another stated that dogs in Australia bite the same amount of people during a full moon as any other time. Other studies, though, report that during full moon’s time, people bring their pets more frequently to vets.
7. THE FULL MOON CAUSES BLOOD LOSS AND SURGERY
This is also an interesting belief. Truly, the worlf of medicine is still trying to prove the mystical powers of the moon. Doctors refused to operate on nights when the moon was full, but this connection has been proved to be a fallacy. A 2009 study published in the Journal of Anesthesiology proved that the phases of the moon had no effect on heart-related surgery.After tracking results of operations performed at the Cleveland Clinic between 1993 and 2006, they no correlation between the time or day of surgery and it’s success.
