Did you know there was a Full Moon on Sunday evening? 🌛🌕🌜 I actually did my first Full Moon ritual.
The belief goes…that as humans we are deeply affected by the moon. We are mostly water after all, and the moon’s job is to pull water in and out of the tides. As women, the moon can even sync up with our natural cycles.
Whether you believe in its power or not, this ritual is so helpful and calming and can be used at any point during the month! Here’s what I did:
I got in bed with a peppermint tea and grabbed my journal and a pen ☕📝 ✨
The first part of the ritual is all about letting go. What is no longer serving you? Limiting beliefs, self-talk, worries, bad habits…Get it all down on a piece of paper. Then tear it out of your journal and fold it up. Later you can tear it up and throw it in the bin or (safely) burn it outside! I opted for the former. 😂 ✨
The second part is all about what you’re ready to call in. I wrote a short list of the things I want to manifest and call into my life before the next Full Moon. Get specific and use a present tense (e.g. I have, I am, etc.) Then, close your eyes and make it real - picture all these things right in front of you and in your reality. ✨
I used a Full Moon guided meditation on Insight Timer to help me through all of this and just paused as I went. If you have the app DM me and I can share the link. ☺️ ✨
I finished by going to the window and looking UP. We take the Universe for granted. It’s literally the reason we exist. The Full Moon looks bloody gorgeous so take a pause and look at her shining 😍🌕 ✨
You can also do this in a hot salt bath or by your window looking out! Apparently, you should also ‘charge’ your crystals on a windowsill or outside where they’re in direct light of the moon. ✨ ✨
That’s it! A really powerful 20 minute exercise if you’re holding onto some shitty beliefs or bad habits, or if you’re ready to start setting goals and co-creating your dream life. ✨
My fellow woo ladies - do you have a Full Moon Ritual? I'm such a newbie and would love to hear what you like to do! 🌕
