Moontime Magic: Healing your Monthly Flow with Crystals

If you’re anything like me, you have mixed feelings about your moontime (menstrual cycle) and the energies that accompany that powerful time of the month.  One one hand, you connect with the ancient culture that honored a women’s monthly bleeding as a sacred time for deep introspection, rest and re-connection.  On the other, headaches, emotional instability, irritability, sweet cravings and a bloated belly create a less than desirable physical environment for tuning into your inner wisdom and celebrating your wombanhood.

Would you believe that one of the most antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, mood and energy boosting remedies can be attained by simply walking barefoot on the Earth?  Believe it or not, the practice of “grounding” (or “earthing”) is said to have an amazing effect on our bodies health.  For over a decade, research has emerged that suggests that direct physical connection with the abundant supply of the electrons on the surface of the Earth can promote positive physiological changes and benefits to our well being, such as improved sleep, reduced cortisol (stress hormone)
