Full Moon; A Time to Release!
As you look up at a glowing full moon have you ever wondered what to do or why is it so mesmerizing? There’s a reason we are attracted to the moon and no it’s not because of a werewolf myth. The moon holds an energy that connects us to our authentic self and works to enhance our highest purpose. Pretty cool right!?
A full moon’s energy promotes releasing or purging making it a great time to let go of what is no longer working for us or doesn’t feel right. It is a time to tie up any loose ends so they do not follow you into the seeds of the New Moon. How do you know what to do on a full moon? There are many rituals to choose from so pick what works best for you after all this is all about you so take advantage of it.
Here are a few that I love to do as they are easy ways to release around my busy schedule. I use all seven chakra rollers and my cleansing bundle to prepare for my full moon rituals. Chakra rollers help balance my chakra system and energy field and the cleansing bundle has ethically sourced sage bundle, palo santo stick, and a cleansed clear quartz crystal. Everything I need to cleanse my space before starting my full moon release.
Release! Release! Release.
Find a quiet space where you will not be interrupted, for busy homes find an area you will have the least amount of interruptions. Cleanse your space with sage or palo santo stick. You will do this by lighting the sage or palo stick for about 25 seconds allowing the orange embers to glow enough then gently blow out the flames. Place in a heat-resistant container and slowly walk around your space allowing the smoke to waft guiding it out of a window or door.
Sit down, write a list of everything you want to release from your life then read them aloud with the intention of letting go of them and say “I release you”
Yep, it’s just that easy!
Light a candle or incense, sit in a relaxing position, close your eyes and take 6 deep breaths inhaling through your nose exhaling through your mouth. Visualize you are at the edge of the ocean, the cool sand against your feet as the waves gently massage your toes with the light of the moon shining on your face. Either aloud or in your head begin to state what you want to release by saying “I Release…” Once you have completed your list, state “I release all that is no longer serving my greater purpose.” Now you can slowly get up, be sure your sage bundle or palo stick is no longer burning, and enjoy feeling lighter!
Have a Dance Party of 1, 2, or maybe 3!
Yep, you read it right, dance it out. Get your family to join or do it by yourself. Get your favorite playlist out, turn up the volume, and dance as if everyone is watching and you have no care in the world. Shake up your stagnant energy and release it. Laugh, smile, enjoy your full moon dance party.
Try all or pick which one sticks out the most to you and start releasing!
Whether you create a quiet sacred space or turn up your favorite music and dance your heart out, you will align with the energy of the full moon and will feel lighter as you begin to focus on what serves your highest self.
