We know it might sound weird but keeping water under the moon can boost your health by miles and bounds. Believe it or not, according to various studies and experts, moon-charged water is one of the most holistic ways to keep your body in the pink of health.
Science says that during a full moon, its energies are passed on to the water kept outside. The moonlight falls on it and the water is blessed with the magic of the moon.
Still confused about what we are speaking about? Well, then let dietician Vidhi Chawla throw some light on it.
“Moon charged water or lunar charged water is prepared by keeping a glass of water under moonlight. It is believed that the water captures the positive energy of the moon and gets charged. Since it is visible that the moon and water have some elemental connection due to tides, it is obvious that the glass will be affected by water,” shared Ms Chawla with HealthShots.
Typically, this water is collected during the full moon or purnima, as it is believed that the moon’s energy is at its prime. But, you can make it at any time of the month, when the moon is visible.
But yes, what you need to keep in mind is that you should not keep the water under the moon on the day of the eclipse. That’s because it might have a negative impact.
Just like the moon’s magnetic field leads to the phenomenon of high and low tide; similarly, during the full moon, the energy is passed on to the water. Due to the receptive nature of the water, the light makes it all the more potent.
Since our body is mainly composed of water, this moon-charged water easily connects with the body and takes in its benefits.
Moon charge has a lot of benefits and though science doesn’t back this theory, many spiritual healers and doctors believe that this elemental energy source can affect our body and mind in many positive ways.
1. Moon charged water can help you get your menstrual cycle back on track
“Ayurveda says that the 28-day cycle of the moon and your menstrual cycle are interrelated. Therefore, it may keep your menstrual cycle in sync with the moon,” suggests Ms Chawla.
2. It can also help you with PCOS
It is believed that one must drink moon-charged water on an empty stomach first thing in the morning. Since it is believed both moon and water have calming and soothing properties; and form an elemental balance, they can help in overcoming hormonal imbalance.
3. It keeps you energized
Other than that, moon water can help in revitalizing and cleansing your energy. Therefore, it is used for spiritual healing, as the moon is believed to possess the energy that enhances qualities like acceptance, surrender, and equanimity, which can also be described as yin or feminine energy.
“As said before, it possesses yin energy and balance. Therefore, it is particularly beneficial for mental and emotional healing,” says Ms Chawla.
4. It helps you with your skin too
“Moon-charged water is said to enhance the glow of the skin, especially if used as a part of your daily beauty routine. All this happens due to the energy it soaks from the moon. The moonlight energizes the water in a way that it helps in cleansing your skin,” suggests Ms Chawla.
5. Moon-charged water also helps in dealing with mental health problems
According to a study published in the journal Molecular Psychiatry, mental health is connected to the lunar phenomenon, especially if you are dealing with bipolar issues.
It is said that this happens due to the calming properties of the moonlight, and the energies present in the water.
There are several ways in which you can consume this water, but let us tell you a few:
1. Drink it on an empty stomach: After waking up, you should drink a glass of this moon-charged water on an empty stomach. It is the easiest and most effective way.
2. In tea: You can also use it to make tea. Use moon water instead of regular water to realign the moon’s energy.
Other than personal healing, it is important to heal and energize your surroundings. Here are few suggested ways:
1. Cleaning your home: Add some moon water to your cleaning solutions to give your home and altar a deep energetic clearing.
2. Watering plants: Plants also enjoy being watered with a bit of this energy. So, water your plant with moon water. It is not necessary to fill the pot with moon water, a few spoonfuls will work.
“Even though scientific evidence is faltering and indecisive, there’s no denying that the moon carries heightened energy. So, using it with positive intentions is all that matters, therefore there is no harm in trying this water. It might just work for you,” concluded Ms Chawla.
