Importance of Full or New Moon and Eclipses in Spirituality

The Lunar Eclipse, Full Moon or New or No Moon Days have always been considered to those days which affect the mind the most. Even though, many people attribute sudden mood-swings or heightened emotions around the period of Amavasya or Purnima to some or the other paranormal reason, the most likely reason is the influence of the moon on the mind.

It is well known that since the human body is more than 60% water and the brain and heart are more than 70% water the gravitational pull or force of the moon affects the human mind and body and influences the water element in the same manner in which it affects the water in the oceans.

Many people associate the moon with abnormal, erratic and irrational behavior or even lunacy because of the mood swings and restlessness that most people experience during this period.

Hence, people having a nervous temperament can experience blood pressures related problems, indigestion, and menstural problems during Amavasya and Purnima.

However, for spiritual-minded people wishing to reach higher levels of consciousness this heightened activity of the mind and brain could prove to be a boon and their mind could cross the invisible boundaries and enter new territories.

Gautam Buddha attained Nirvana or enlightenment on a Full Moon Day as have some others. The period of Amavasya can be equally or even more effective and beneficial for people wishing to transform their minds and reach higher levels of existence because of the high energy levels experienced by the body, which if harnessed properly can take the mind to new heights.

However, most people should keep in mind that real success in any kind of spiritual meditation means that you have to cross the boundary and reach the higher level or “enlightenment” there is nothing in-between, either your mind has crossed the boundary or it has not.

Even if, you are not seeking the kind of “enlightenment” scaled by Buddha and others, you can easily attract positive energy into your lives by meditating on the moon.

Practitioners of Kundalini Yoga can stimulate and awaken their Kundalini Shakti during Grahan Kaal, Purnima or Amavasya by focusing their energy on any one of the seven Chakras. In my opinion, concentrating on the Root for Muladhara Chakra can be very fruitful and the practitioner could hear the very low-intensity sound emitted by this Chakra.

Practitioners of Mantra Sadhana can earmark these periods as they are more likely to gain Siddhi during these periods of the month.

As per Hindu and Western Astrology, the moon is the over-lord of the mind. Hence,lay-persons and followers of astrology who wish to attract the positive energy of the moon can have a look at the posts mentioned below that could prove to be helpful in attracting positive energy and removing negative energy from their bodies and surroundings.
