Full moon ritual
The full moon is a great time to release everything that isn't serving you. A time to reflect and regroup. A time to make space to receive more positivity into your life.
I love moon rituals because they allow me to become at one with the universe. The moon is so powerful .
Set up a sacred space.
Meditate for 5 minutes. This will be different for everyone. I like sitting in quiet for a period of time. Listening to the sounds around me. Focussing on how i feel. Really listening to the feelings deep within me. Do what feels right for you to centre yourself.
Write down anything that isn't saving you at the moment. Habits, lifestyle choices, connections.
On a separate sheet of paper, write down all that you desire. What do you want to attract into your life?
Read your first list to the full moon. Visualise all that you down want floating away into the moons energy. I also enjoy burning this piece of paper once I've read it out to really release it energetically.
Now you have made space, read out the second list to the moon. Really feel those things coming into your life. Visualise them as if yo already have it, or are doing it. This is a great time to have the crystals supporting you.
If your using crystals it can really help to amplify your intentions. Do the above moon energy ritual and then follow it up with the crystal ritual below.
A simple full moon crystal ritual
Wash them well. A simple rinse under running water will do.
Set your crystals out.
The ideal time to put them out is just after sunset. A natural surface is best outside. If that isn’t an option put them near a window where they will get direct moonlight. As you set each one down name something you want to let go of. You can name the same thing over and over or pick a different one with each crystal.
Pull them in the next morning.
It’s nice to give them a little reboot with the sun’s energy, but not for too long. Through sun rise is enough.
Charge your crystals with intentions.
This is one of my favorite parts of the ritual, it’s even more important than naming what we want to release. Once your have all of your crystals back inside charge them with your intentions. Charging crystals with your energy helps them stay focused.
You can charge all of your crystals at once by imagining them soaked in healing energy. They can also be charged individually or in groups. It’s really up to you, there is no right or wrong way to charge them, let your intuition be your guide.
It’s nice to end this cleansing and charging ritual with gratitude. A simple thank you to Mother Earth for the ways she supports our life and a humble bow to the crystals for all of the work that they do.
