Biorhythms have been studied for many generations. As human beings, we are always trying to better understand ourselves and the study of biorhythms seeks to understand and plot our body’s natural cycles. This sounds simple until you are faced with your biorhythms presented as three mathematical lines on a graph. The reading and interpretation of both the current state of your biorhythms and the immediate future of your biorhythms can at first appear to be tricky.
Biorhythm readings are usually presented covering the three major biorhythm cycles of Physical, Emotional and Intellectual states. The readings are most commonly provided as a graphical curve with the horizontal line representing time (usually days) and the vertical line representing the reading for that time. The readings will be presented as being either a positive percentage, zero or a negative percentage – the maximum reading being 100% and the minimum reading being -100%. A reading of zero is actually a ‘middle reading’. Ok, so far so good, so for my physical biorhythm reading for today, I locate the physical biorhythm curve (usually blue), I look along the biorhythms graph to find today’s date and read vertically to get a reading that will be between plus one hundred percent and minus one hundred percent. Repeat then for Emotional Biorhythm and for Intellectual Biorhythm.
Ok, this is all very easy and I am sure that most of you understand how to read numbers from a graph. However, what is most important is the need to be able to interpret the biorhythm reading to give it meaning to you and to your current state of being. As I have said to a number of queries I have received concerning biorhythms, it is really up to the individual how much they get from their biorhythm reading. Some people will tell you that if they have all three biorhythms showing -100% that they will not leave their house whilst others (me included) prefer to see such negative indicators as a warning that we should perhaps take a little more care in applying ourselves to our daily lives – a forewarned is forearmed approach.
Taking this philosophy a step further, it is straightforward to see that a 100% reading for the physical biorhythm for example may indicate that we have more bounce in our step whereas for a -100% reading we may feel a little out of tune, perhaps a little quicker to get tired.
What is important to recognise is that biorhythm cycles cannot predict significant life events – despite what many biorhythm gurus will tell you. You may well have a heart attack on a 100% physical day or feel sad on a 100% emotional day – it is just that those events will not be quite as bad as if they had occurred on more negative days.
More noteworthy may be those days upon which a transition occurs between positive and negative – the day when a biorhythm reading crosses the zero line. We all interpret these days as transitions and observe that life in that area of biorhythm may be somewhat more chaotic than usual.
Whatever your views on biorhythms and however you choose to use and interpret them, remember that the very fact that you took the time out to study something for you that is about you is in itself a beneficial and life enhancing act.
