Moods and Moons...

Did you know we are affected by the changes in the moon?
 Did you ever notice that around the time of a full moon you may feel a little more edgy, anxious or stressed?  Maybe you feel out of sorts or "off".
You are not alone.  Changes in the atmosphere and weather also create changes in our bodies and our moods can be affected.
It's been said that hosting a party or event leading up to a full moon may be a good time.  People can tend to be more receptive to having fun!
Changes in the weather can trigger positive or negative thoughts or memories.  You are not just imagining things if you have more energy at certain
 times of the year or on specific days.
We only get so many pockets of energy a day.  
Make sure you don't use all of you energy worrying, being upset, angry or frustrated.
It is said that we may be more energetic during the time of year in which we were born.
Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall.
Did you ever notice that you seem to be more alive and motivated during a certain season.
Listen to what your body is telling you.
If you are tired rest.  If you are edgy or cranky find something that you can do to de-stress.
Go on a walk, go for a swim, be in nature.
Do whatever makes you happy.
Did you know that Massage, Reiki and Reflexology can help you to restore energy.
They can help you to relax and feel balanced both physically and mentally.
Treating yourself to any of these services can help you emotionally too.  They can help you to feel more grounded and nurtured.
The next time you feel like "it must be a full moon"
remember to listen to what your body is telling you.  Energy shifts happen all day everyday.  Just coming in contact with someone who is displaying some sort of negative energy can drag you down.
Aromatherapy is very helpful for lifting your mood.  Oils like Rosemary, Lemongrass, Cinnamon, Orange, Peppermint and Eucalyptus can elevate your mood.
If you are feeling like you need a calming effect try
Ylang Ylang, Lavender, Marjoram or Cedarwood.
Light a candle, dim the lights, put on your favorite music to achieve the mood you would like to be experiencing.  Surround yourself with the things and or people you love.  Whether you need your space and some quiet time or you need to be around people do whatever it is that makes you feel best.
Committed to enriching your body, mind & spirit!
