Where New Moons are all about manifesting and new beginnings, Full Moons are all about letting go and releasing of all those things that no longer serve us. They are a great opportunity and a great time for detoxing and energetic clearing. They are also a great place to start if you are thinking about working with Moon Cycles.
They pour down a tremendous amount of energy and those of you whole are sensitive to energies will especialy feel the energy of the Full Moon. It has a vast effect on our emotions and anything we are feeling around the time of a Full Moon will be amplified. The energy is very powerful and so a great time for releasements and letting go. It heralds an excellent time for spiritual and emotion growth. You will start to feel the energy of the Full Moon a couple of days before and after the Full Moon so you are able to work with its energy at any point during these times. Although it is strongest on the peak of the Full Moon.
Letter burning is a great releasing ritual to do on a full Moon. Holding onto things that no longer serve us keep us stagnant and hinder our spiritual advancement. Illuminating these things helps us become aware of them and they become easier to let go of. We are then able to create space in our lives that allows better things to come to us. I have posted a Full Moon Ritual in our "freebies" section. You can always adapt this to suit and resonate with you. I have also created a Full Moon essential oil blend and a Full Moon kit to aid you in your ritual.
One of the first things I do on the day of a Full Moon is cleanse my home and myself with Palo Santo and White Sage. I also use my Aura & Room Cleansing Spray. On the evening of the Full Moon, it is a great time to put your crystals outside (make sure they aren't crystals that are water soluble). The restorative energy cleanses and charges crystals and purifies their vibration. If you are unable to put them outside (due to them being effected by water and moisture) or you do no have any outdoor space, placing them by the window, also helps them soak up the energy of the Full Moon and is just as effective. Both methods will give them a deep energy cleansing and charging. This is also a great and effective time to detox your body. Drink plenty of water and eat really healthy. Try not to drink any alcohol or eat unhealthy foods. It is also a perfect time to have a cleansing bath with candles and aromatherapy bath salts or oils. If you don't have access to a bath, you could use Aromatherapy bath scrubs. These are all very cleansing and detoxifying and will help with your intentions of working with the Moons Energy.
Try and keep your thoughts positive around Full Moons. As their energy amplifies our emotions, they can sometimes cause a little havoc in our lives if we are focussed on negative thoughts or stresses. If you do feel a little negative or down, a Ritual would really help you release these emotions, thoughts and feelings. By doing this you are also setting intentions and goals for yourself to help you move towards your dreams and bringing more harmony into your life. Take some time out to meditate and also send blessings to whomever may need them. It has huge benefits for them and as a bonus, you create loads of good karma.
Full Moons aren't the only time you can release what no longer serves you or detox your body, mind or soul. You can do this at any time of the month, however, using the Full Moons energy will amplify both your intentions and the energy around you, making this an excellent time to move forward spiritually and emotionally.
There are many ways to use the Energy of the Full Moon. So do what resonates with you for your highest and best.
Good luck with your Moon preparations
