A Woman´s Moon Centers

In a recent workshop, I have known about moon centers, which are exclusive to women. According to Jivan Joti Kaur, moon centers are: “Sensitive physical areas located on the woman’s body that are responsive to lunar energies and affect how we deal with our everyday life. “

We have 11 Moon Centers in our body, and we dwell in each one for 2 1/2 days. Every woman’s rotation pattern is unique, and stays the same her entire life. However, a sudden event -emotional shock- can change the natural rhythm or rotation pattern. The Moon Centers do not coincide with the menstrual cycle or zodiacal mood cycle.

Our 11 moon centers:

  1. Clitoris: very social, likes to network and connect
  2. Vagina: also social, but deep cavity — tendency to be inward and pensive.
  3. Thighs (inner organs also): most organized, to the point of obsession, you make your lists, clean, organize. Best time to do the things on your lists.
  4. Navel: most insecure, which creates a lot of pain. Do: breath of fire, navel power sets, meditate, silence, go inward, write, be creative, dance. Don’t: chocolate fest.
  5. Breasts/Nipples: most compassionate and heart-centered. Dangerous: might have a hard time setting your boundaries. Most likely to be sensual/sexual – affects whether you want to be touched.
  6. Back of the neck – very romantic and erotic. flirtatious, takes risks and not very logical. Not a good time to make a decision but a good time to brainstorm. Not good for planning, meetings, or detailed work.
  7. Lips: speech, communication. Words can be uplifting/effective. But if you’re not balanced, words can be harsh and alienating. Be careful or be still! May be most into kissing and erotic expression.
  8. Cheeks: most dangerous! We’re crazy. Most emotional, illogical, and delusional. Emotions run away with themselves, say things we don’t mean, pick fights.
  9. Earlobes: Self-righteous, connected to our values, more prone to activism and judgmental.
  10. Eyebrows: most subtle part of our parasympathetic nervous system. illusionary/imaginary. Be creative or brainstorm and play! Don’t make decisions or go shopping, but dream.
  11. Hairline (archline): Our halo. Wisdom, focused. Time you’re most connected to your essence. Great for decisions!

Charting the Moon Centers

Jivan Joti Kaur Khalsa  advices that if we watch our diet, practice yoga and meditation, and maintain a positive attitude, we can observe our emotional tendencies at each Moon Center and not be a victim to them. We can study them to better understand our personality and then use them for our benefit. An added benefit is that stimulating our active Moon Center can be very sensually erotic in love-making.

A transformational experience this weekend: Kundalini Dance

This Saturday I practiced for the very first time Kundalini Dance and I got fascinated. We were a group about 10 women together with the instructor.

We introduced ourselves and prayed before starting. The instructor guided us. The workshop consisted basically of letting our body move and dance while focusing our mind in the points of meditation given by the instructor.

The theme was “personal empowerment” and the sensuous music enlightened us in the transformational path, which covered these areas:

1.- Follow your own values;

2.- Take on responsibility in your life;

3.- Don´t compare to other people;

4.- Set Limits;

5.- Conviction (in goals, actions);

6.- Take Action: pursue your dreams;

7.- Show your self, who you are;

8.- Reward yourself, be kind to yourself (envision a crown of light over your head);

We were dancing through these 8 stages of personal empowerment and all women felt highly connected to each other and shared the love. We finished praying again. Each of us picked a card of guidance from Doreen Virtue angel tarot cards. Mine was White Tara!

Those sexy little things called plants, by Plasticity

http://www.plasticityny.com/

When we asked ourselves how can we approach living sustainably with a fun approach, we spotted the work of stylist Yolanda Armengol de Groot.

And we totally fell for her handmade jewelry project made with real crassulas plants. In the artists own words her delicate line reflects on ‘the transformative effects of time’. To wear something until it fades away is for sure a playful metaphor to remind us of where your things come from and where they go to.

Superfoods, by Jen Broyles

Superfoods are all the rage these days and there’s good reason for it. They are more than all-natural, whole foods; they are in fact both a food and a medicine. Superfoods are the most nutrient-rich, potent, concentrated foods on the plant. They are the ideal choice for improving one’s health, boosting the immune system, cleansing, reducing inflammation, alkalizing the body, boosting serotonin production, and enhancing sexuality. Below are a few of my favorite superfoods. They’re delicious and are great in combination with each other. They taste great and make you feel great!
1. Goji Berries
Goji berries are delicious, little, nutrient-packed red berries that look similar to raisins. They are a complete protein source containing 18 different amino acids and all eight essential amino acids. They contain many trace minerals such as zinc, iron, copper, selenium, phosphorous and calcium. Goji berries also contain some of the highest levels of antioxidants of any food in the world (2 to 4 times the amount found in blueberries). Also, they boost immune function, increasealkalinity, protect the liver, improve eyesight and blood quality, and provide anti-aging benefits.
Best ways to use:
Goji berries are great on salads, in smoothies, added to trail mix, or eaten alone.
2. Cacao
Cacao, or raw chocolate, is the highest antioxidant food on the planet. This is fantastic news for all you chocolate lovers out there!  Of course the raw form of chocolate is the healthiest because it has not been processed and no sugar has been added. Cacao is a great source of antioxidants, magnesium, iron, manganese and chromium. It elevates your mood and energy, builds strong bones, improves cardiovascular health, and is a natural aphrodisiac.
Best ways to use:
You can purchase cacao in powdered form or nibs. I love the powdered cacao to add to smoothies, and use in desserts. I put cacao in my morning smoothie everyday!!!
3. Raw Honey
Bee products, such as bee pollen and propolis, are packed with vitamins and minerals. Raw honey is not only amazingly delicious, but is rich in minerals, antioxidants, enzymes, and probiotics. Honey can also be used topically to heal wounds. Although raw honey has many nutritional properties, it is still a form of sugar, so consume in moderation.
Best ways to use:
Raw honey is a great natural sweetener to use in herbal teas, smoothies, and desserts
4. Coconut Oil
Coconut products (coconut oil, flesh, cream, water) are packed with fabulous nutrients.  Coconut oil is very valuable to the immune system as it contains antiviral, antifungal and antimicrobial properties. It also improves digestion and absorption of fat-soluble vitamins and amino acids. Coconut oil improves the utilization of blood sugar and improves the absorption of calcium and magnesium. Coconut oil consists of over 90% raw saturated fats in the form of medium chain fatty acids, which support the immune system, thyroid gland, nervous system, skin, and provide fast energy. It can also be used topically as a soothing moisturizer.
Best ways to use:
Add a tablespoon of coconut oil to smoothies, or use it in place of olive oil for cooking. Coconut oil is the most stable oil at high temperatures, so it does not turn rancid. Therefore, it is ideal for cooking.
5. Spirulina
Spirulina is a type of algae that provides a wide array of minerals, phytonutrients and enzymes. Additionally, spirulina is the world’s highest source of complete protein (65%). It is packed with iron, chlorophyll, and antioxidants. Spirulina also contains sulfur, which improves the immune system, physical strength, flexibility, complexion, healing speed, and liver and pancreas functionality.
Best ways to use:
Spirulina can be purchased in powdered form and added to smoothies or sprinkled on salads.  If you’re new to spirulina, I recommend starting with a small amount and gradually increasing, so you can grow accustomed to the taste.  Plus, be aware that it will turn your smoothies green!
