Balance exercises. The Moon is still in its powerful state, it reflects the highest amount of sunlight. You can also swim along the moonlight. You may meditate on filling up with the moonlight. Lay down, relax and visualize: picture yourself laying on the beach, hear the sounds of the waves; watch the starry arch in the sky and the huge Moon which brightens the surroundings. You see the moonlight glimmering on the water and the Moon's halo, which covers all the visible parts of the sky. You feel harmony, relaxed, no worries, no thoughts. Soon you begin to feel the moonlight touching your skin and penetrating inside of your body. This is Sun energy being transformed, cooled after reflecting from the Moon. You are filling up with this flow more and more and becoming this Light. You breathe with this light and feel how it calms all the cells of your body, how it calibrates all your inner flows, how it un-wrinkles your face and skin. Continue to take it in until you feel enough. When the meditation is finished, thank the Moon and the reflected sunlight. Rejuvenation procedures are favorable today.
