show the physical, emotional and intellectual cycles in our lives.
Sometimes all three cycles are together
on the up swing or down swing. When all three cycles are up life feels
really good. When all three are down we can feel depressed. Most of the
time the three cycles are varied in different degrees of highs and
lows in relationship to each other.
The extreme up swings and down swings occur at
least twice a year. It's nice to understand our moods in relation to the
major down swing periods because it can help us get a handle on what we
Physical energy cycles complete every 23 days.
Emotional cycles complete every 28 days. Intellectual cycles complete
every 33 days.
Critical points are when individual cycles are
switching from high periods to low and vice-versa. When going lower the
effect is similar to when you are getting off the freeway and putting the
breaks on so you can drive at a slower speed on a city street. When the critical period is shifting up
it is the reverse. It is as though you are getting on the on ramp to the freeway
and have to speed up.
