Why do we do a meditation around Full Moon?
The gravitational force of the moon tends to pull our brain to the top of our skull during the time of a full moon. Meditating around the same time relaxes the brain as it is pulled down against the gravity of the moon. Other than relaxation, meditation also enhances the immune system.
The moon’s energy—lunar energy—affects different people differently. This is the origin of the term ‘lunatic’, which actually means anyone who is influenced by the gravitational effect of the full moon on a mental and psychological level. However, everyone’s physiology is affected by the full moon’s gravity. For example, if one has a cut, it tends to bleed more, and if one has a wound, it tends to hurt more, on a full moon day. Thus, it is practical to avoid surgery or teeth extraction during a full moon.
