Me too. I’ve always felt connected to the moon however as I’ve grown older and followed my calling on to the spiritual path I’ve really started delving deep into the moon cycles and how connected and effected we all are by them.
On the 26th of May this week we will be presented with another full moon known as “The Flower Moon”
Everything's in bloom! (Incorporate flowers and flower essences into your moon rituals.)
How does the full moon affect us?
Humans have been living by lunar cycles for centuries, and in our modern world, connecting to these energies can give us a sense of grounding and synergy with the earth and cosmos.
While the new moon is a time to set intentions for the future and launch new projects, the full moon is a time of culmination and fruition. Starting with the "dark" phase of the new moon, the lunar surface gathers light over a two-week period, then manifests as a full moon. When the moon is completely full, it's a spiritual and energetic pinnacle of whatever you started when the sun and the moon united at the new moon.
What to do during the full moon:
Full moon meditations are a powerful way to tap the luminous lunar energy and harness the energetic power of the moon's light. You can do a full moon meditation before any of your rituals to set up the right mind-set and align yourself with what you want to accomplish.
Make sure you find a comfy safe space preferably facing the moon allowing all of its beams to fill you with light. Focus on your breath and your intentions.
Set intentions and Release
Words are powerful, and the full moon is a potent time for letting go of what's no longer serving you. Write down a list of everything you want to release from your life, and read them aloud with intention. Say, "I release you!" or "Thank you for your service"—you are free to move on don’t hold to anything that is no longer working for you. This can include relationships, habits and objects - absolutely anything.
Let go of any judgment and close your eyes as you visualize yourself attracting exactly what you want. You can use the objects/crystals as points of focus. Don’t hold back truly envision how you want your life to look and feel delve deep into that feeling notice where you are pay attention to details and who your with spend as much time as you want creating and visualising your desires. Speak to the universe and ask for what it is you’re seeking for.
Take a moon bath.
The full moon's light can rejuvenate our psyches. Connect with lunar energy by submerging yourself in water. Draw a healing bath around the time of the full moon, and gather your favourite salts, crystals, and candles. You can say your full moon intentions aloud while you're relaxing in the tub as you imagine the full moon restoring every cell of your body. Or, take a dip in a lake, ocean, or pool (if weather and circumstances permit and your brave enough!) This is always a great ritual because it means taking some time to pamper yourself. When was the last time you did this?
Charge your crystals
I lay my crystals on the window sill, bathing them in the moon’s beams. This recharges them, and they energy rubs off on us.
Whatever you decide to do remember there is no wrong or right way there is just your way. Listen to your body what feels right for you? I think it’s just the perfect time to sit with yourself and reflect on what’s no longer serving you. A time to pause and breathe a time to connect with yourself and where you’re at.
Sending lots of love and light,
