Releasing something that no longer serves you; or letting go of something that you no longer need in your life; or an opportunity to let go of an aspect of yourself that you have outgrown. Unburden yourself and purge. Release the old, celebrate your emergence by stepping out of an old way of being, an old identity, behaviour, attitude, relationship, mindset, situation.
“When a deep injury is done to us, we never heal until we forgive.”-Nelson Mandela. Forgiveness is the key if you want a happy life. Use the emotions which come up at the time of the Full Moon to see who you need to forgive; yourself, anyone else.
Acceptance and surrender bring peace and calm. There is no point in fighting against what is. At the time of the Full Moon, when all the emotions come to the surface, it’s the time to surrender to the Divine, to remember, you ARE Divine Feminine! This means accepting life as it is and that on some level everything is happening for a reason. Your soul signed up for this so you can evolve! Everything works in Divine timing.
For abundance and manifesting, gratitude is the key to everything! It works miracles. So after you have released, forgiven and surrendered, spend time to be grateful for all the good in your life!
This full moon ritual marks this inner transformation in a formal, ceremonial way. Emphasising to yourself and the Universe that you are ready to let go for the new you to emerge. Making way for new magical opportunities to come to you.
What you need: pen, journal/paper, matches, candle, (or open fire). If possible, do this outside under the Full Moon, connecting directly with Mother Nature and the Moon’s energies.
Create your private and sacred space. Cleanse yourself with sage, light a candle. Place crystals and other special items around you. Invite your guides, angels, masters, or teachers to be at your side throughout the ritual. Give yourself enough time and self-care to feel all of the emotions that might arise through this ritual.
Close your eyes, take a deep inhale. Go within, hold your breath for five seconds, then release. Repeat your breaths to clear your head and calm your mind. Visualise the moonlight shimmering down towards you. The white, silvery moonlight soaks into your crown chakra and down through all your chakras into Mother Earth. This light fills your aura and you glow outward. You are protected in this dome of moonlight. This enhances your connection to the full moon, which enhances your intuition and aligns with your heart chakra, claiming your Divine Feminine and connecting you with your soft, nurturing, compassionate, receiving side.
Focus on your breath and go within to your heart chakra. What/who do you need to forgive/let go? Write in your journal/paper what you wish to release from your life, what limiting beliefs you want to be free from, what no longer serves you or what you want to let go of. When you have finished your list, sign, and date the page.
Spend a few minutes visualising each person/issue you listed, inside a pink bubble of unconditional love. Feel the unconditional love between you both and say aloud “I forgive you. I now let this go. And so, it is”. Then let the person/issue float off in their bubble.
Burn your list into the universe for transformation into unconditional love and as the as the flame catches, say aloud “I release all that no longer serves me on this full moon”. FEEL the Fire burning through your entire being. Feel the weight being lifted off. It all comes down to intention. Once the flame has gone out, say “Under this full moon, I forgive myself, everyone, everything, every experience in all directions of time. I AM LOVE. My thoughts, beliefs and relationships are healed”. Visualise yourself illuminated with moonlight, vibrating at a higher frequency, completely empowered and renewed. Sit in silence for a moment.
Since the full moon will amplify whatever energy you put out, this is a powerful time to express appreciation for all that is going well in your life. Write down as many things you can think of that you’re grateful for. The amazing thing about gratitude is that it will instantly begin to raise your vibration and attract abundance towards you. The key is to actually feel gratitude for what you have. Sit in silence for a moment.
Slowly come back to your breath and your body. Take three deep breaths. Reconnect with the moonlight through the top of your crown, through your chakras and ground yourself into Mother Earth. Thank your Spiritual Counsel and your Divine Feminine for their guidance. Cleanse again with sage to release any negative energy you released.
What ritual wouldn’t be complete without a bath? Water is symbolic of cleansing and recharging. Draw a hot bath and place any salts or oils you feel called to put in. Magnesium or Epsom salts is always a go-to of mine because it physically and energetically cleanses you. Light candles around your bath. Allow yourself to submerge into the dark and stillness, connecting back to the spiritual realm and yourself. Visualise this water recharging you after everything you’ve released tonight. Know that your doorway is cleared and open and you’re ready to receive everything you’ve intended to receive.
Happy Full Moon Love and Blessings,
