Yin-Yang Balance ☥

01459708

Achieving yin-yang balance helps you to stay healthy, happy and fulfilled.

The state of life is illustrated by the yin-yang symbol; known also as the tai chi symbol.

Before talking about yin-yang balance, let’s find out what yin and yang mean.

Yin and yang are two sides of dualism. It is the tail and the head of a coin. The tail is yin, then the head is yang. They exist alongside one another. The head cannot exist without the tail, and the tail cannot exist without the head.

Everything in this world is a dualism. In it, you can always find yin and yang.

The earth we live on is yin, and the sun that brings us warmth is yang. A woman is yin, and a man is yang. Sadness is yin, while joyfulness is yang.

Generally, yin is passive, oppressed and feminine. Yang, on the other hand, is active, bright and masculine.

Managing yin yang is something that we have to do all the time.

Knowing how the yin and yang energies can be altered helps us to have a better control of reality.

By altering the yin-yang relationship, you can make the energy towards your advantage, or strike a new balance that are often helpful to all parties involved.

Let’s look at an example. Imagine that you are in a heated argument.

In most cases, we tend to become agitated when the other party begins to argue. This is quite natural. Unfortunately, the heated energy is yang. When you respond with agitation, it is also yang, and the whole situation will get off-balance.

Try doing something to avert the ‘yang-yang’ imbalance, and achieve the yin-yang balance.

Instead of rebuttal, stay silent for a moment.

See what happens! You are now introducing to the energy field a noticeable level of yin energy. In other words, you are now altering the state of the energy field by lowering the yang energy.

If probably managed, a result can be an amicable yin and yang balance, which is beneficial to both parties.

This is like what Lao Tzu depicts in Tao Te King:

“Tao engenders One;
One engenders Two;
Two engenders Three;
Three engenders all things.
All things carry the yin (femininity)
while embrace the yang (masculinity).
Neutralising energy brings them into harmony.”

Tao Te Ching Quotes (42)

In this case, Tao is one. The heated argument and silence are duality of the situation, which are two. When they interact in the way that you manage, it emerges the new yin-yang situation, which is known as three. The three could be off balance. But if you can neutralise the two energies, you bring in the yin-yang balance, which is the harmony.

Pow:Her Within Your Moon Cycle ☥

il_fullxfull_365304505_dngkHave you ever paid attention to the moon cycle, and the magical relationship it has with your menstrual cycle? The moon cycle has 29.5 days, changing from the waxing new moon of increasing light, to the full moon of total illumination, to the dark waning moon of decreasing light, and back to the waxing new moon of increasing light again.

Month after month, the moon cycle mirrors a woman’s menstrual cycle, which coincidently has an average length of 29.5 days as well. And similar to the moon cycle, a woman’s menstrual cycle changes from the menstruation of new growth, to the ovulation of full power and blossom, to the pre-menstrual phase of harvest and degeneration, and back to menstruation of renewal again.

All life forms have cycles of birth, growth, death, and renewal that are mirrored in the progressive phases of the moon cycle. I think a better understanding of the moon cycle and its rhythms and energetic influences can help us better appreciate the rhythmic dance of our own menstrual cycles, to be in harmony with it rather than to be at odd with it.

So how’s your menstrual cycle in relation to the moon cycle? Do you menstruate on the new moon or on the full moon? What’s the moon phase when you ovulate?

I read that the natural cycle of women who live and sleep out in the open away from artificial light is to ovulate on the full moon and menstruate on the new moon. But this is not the case for most modern women whose natural rhythms are largely affected by artificial light.

Some women may menstruate on the crescent moon, some on the full moon, some on the waning moon, and others on the new moon. According to Dragontime by Luisa Francia, specific moon phase energies, when magnified by menstruation can be freed up and made available for use if we choose to work with them.

Waxing moon represents new beginnings and growth. New ideas are being planted. New processes are coming into play. New experiences and events are within reach.

The energy of the waxing moon menstruation is inwards and self-nourishing. It’s time to think, to learn, to read, and to plan. During this time, you might be open to important learning, to receive knowledge, to set intentions, and to make new plans.

The goddess associated with the waxing moon is Persephone, a virgin goddess who walked the path to the underworld and was initiated into womanly bleeding. She’s the guardian of the crescent moon menstruation.

The full moon represents fire, abundance, power and vitality. It’s time to claim one’s own power, make decisions, work changes, and bring something into being.

The energy of full moon menstruation is outward, world-nourishing. Feasts and celebration go well with full moon bleeding. The transformational quality of the fire energy makes it an ideal time to learn to transform negative energies into positive ones: rage into creative action, belly cramps into sensuousness.

Ishtar, the Red Goddess of Babylon is the guardian of this menstrual fire.

The waning moon represents maturity and harvest. It’s time for persistence, for making reality out of the visions and impulses.

The energy of waning moon bleeding is outward, world nourishing. It’s time to tend the blooms of the full moon energy, and to make your vision a reality. It takes persistence, patience, and hard work. But the harvest is within reach if you do.

The goddess of this time, Demeter, a mother goddess is responsible for the cycles of life on earth, letting the fruits and grains ripen for harvest, in preparation for the next cycle when she’ll withdraw to tend to her own nourishment, letting the earth become barren while she mourns for her daughter.

The new moon represents the dark and mysterious power of the deep. Existing structures have fulfilled their purposes, and need to be destructed, or reconstructed to make room for the new.

The energy of new moon bleeding is inwards, self-nourishing. During this time, anxieties, memories, and experiences may rise up, eager to be dealt with. It’s a good time to take stock, and to draw conclusions from them. New moon menstruation is a strong time of healing and renewal.

The goddess of this time is Hecate, the woman at the joining of three roads, the guardian of mysteries and knowledge, the reaper, the dark one, the crone.

What’s the moon phase of your menstruation? Does this information resonate with you? As far as I know, it’s not backed up by scientific studies, but rather, myths and traditions that have been passed on from generations to generations. My philosophy is to take what’s useful for you, and leave the rest.

I hope it’ll help you gain a better understanding of your own menstrual cycle and its rhythms, and develop a more harmonious relationship with it.

Tantra Truth ☥

yantra-tantra-mantra-bigger-CROP

Tantra is weaving, expanding, and being fully aware of ourselves. Being fully aware of the consequence of every action, every thought, and every choice. And in how those actions, thoughts, choices, affect who we are and those around us. Looking honestly at yourself and the reasons why you make certain choices. By saying this in one way, am I hoping to manipulate an answer to one I want to hear? If I do this, will I be perceived as more loveable? What is my response or reaction to words or actions that trigger something in me? Not only being authentic in who you are with others, but more importantly, being open to yourself, being brave enough to face yourself and being loving enough not to judge what you may find there.

To expand, we must let go of attachment. We are inherently habitual creatures. Some of our habits and patterns are positive. But they also bind us in a place. There have been many times when I have held onto my attachment of how my relationships should be and my perception of how I wanted my life to be. But we lose our free will and we become controlled by them. When we finally grasp non-attachment to a partner, we open ourselves up to more love and acceptance. When we gain such freedom, remove any boxes society & ourselves confine us to, we are fearless and we expand. And the universe opens us to a multitude of possibilities.
