Most of us know the basics about the three primary biorhythms:
But there is so much more to learn than this - read on.
The primary cycles are made up of not three but four basic cycles; the one that is often ignored is the Intuitive cycle:
Physical: A 23 day cycle tracking physical vitality, health, endurance and strength.
Emotional: A 28 day cycle tracking feelings, creativity, passion, emotions and sensitivity.
Intellectual: A 33 day cycle tracking decision making and judgemental powers, memory, logic and intelligence.
Intuitive: A 38 day cycle tracking unconscious perception, instinctive decisions and anything dealing with the sixth sense.
The secondary cycles formed from combinations of the first three primary cycles are:
Wisdom: The combination of the Emotional and Intellectual cycles.
Mastery: The combination of the Intellectual and Physical cycles.
Passion: The combination of the Emotional and Physical cycles.
The extra cycles formed from combinations of the Intuitive and the other three primary cycles are:
Perception: The combination of the Physical and Intuitive cycles.
Psychic: The combination of the Emotional and Intuitive cycles.
Success: The combination of the Intellectual and Intuitive cycles.
Aesthetic, Self-Awareness and Spiritual biorhythms are based on the I-Ching - also called Book of Changes, one of the fundamental books of Confucianism that was written more than 3000 years ago in China. It talks about the cycles of change including these biorhythms. It is one of the oldest surviving books in the world, and one of the oldest forms of divination.
Aesthetic: A 43-day cycle
Awareness: A 48-day cycle
Spiritual: A 53-day cycle
