“Traditionally, the Moontime is the sacred time of woman when she is honored as a Mother of the Creative Force. During this time she is allowed to release the old energy her body has carried and prepare for reconnection to the Earth Mother’s fertility that she will carry in the next Moon or month. Our Ancestors understood the importance of allowing each woman to have her Sacred Space during this time of reconnection, because women were the carriers of abundance and fertility.”

Living in hectic cities, it becomes easy to accumulate stress in our bodies and minds. The full moon is the perfect time to relax, unwind and reflect upon how you have been doing in the past cycle. When a full moonlight embraces the dark skies, it reminds us that there is hope among so much darkness. Sometimes life can be draining, which can devour a lot of our own energy. When the full moon claims the dark sky, it opens a door for the possibility of restoring that lost energy and allows us to feel its power within ourselves.

What is a full moon ritual?

For centuries it has been believed that the moon's energy impacts many things on earth, such as influencing the ocean tides and plants. Still, it's also believed that the moon affects our moods, our energy and even helps us with the results of our manifestations. If we think about how the moon influences things on earth, such as the ocean, which is made of water, then wouldn't we be affected too since our bodies contain around 70% of water? Many will still be skeptical about the power that the moon has over us, but even our ancestors used to believe that the moon was a sight worth more than just a pretty picture on Instagram. The full moon is a chance for you to restore your energy while letting yourself be showered with a powerful energy that will help you to release bad energies, regain your inner strength, have a clearer mind, and just believe that you can do anything. It's magical yet incredibly real.

A full moon ritual consists of a ceremony that you set out to receive that energy more efficiently. It's your way of accepting the power that the moon has to offer you. It's a chance to release what's hurting you and move on to better things. It's about embracing your real purpose. There are many different things that you can do during a full moon to achieve great results, but which are the best? And what's the best time to perform your full moon ceremony? Although the energy of the full moon is at its highest when the moon is brightening the skies, you can actually use the power of manifestation three days before and three days after.

Why should you have a full moon ritual?

The full moon's ability to cleanse your soul and empower you with its energy is something that has been experienced by so many people. It changes their lives and gives them the chance to be grateful for everything surrounding them. The full moon is not only a spectacular sight in the darkest skies, but it's also a sign that you are here for a purpose, and you were made for great things. You just need to allow yourself to embrace its power and believe that you too can achieve what you want, it's a miracle in the skies that reminds us of how energy is so powerful and crucial to keeps us alive and happy. 

How to Create Your Own Full Moon Ritual?

If you are ready to see the power of the moon in your life, then there are a few things that you can do to embrace its energy. So ensure to add a note on your calendar of the next full moon and prepare yourself for an exceptional experience.

1. Prepare yourself and your environment to accept the energy of the moon

Preparing the environment around you is just as important as preparing yourself to receive the power of the full moon. Lightening up some candles and using essential oils to set a relaxed and calm environment is one vital ritual of preparing yourself to welcome the energy of the full moon.

2. The power of meditation

Mediation allows you to heighten your own energy and to accept the energy around you. It opens a door for the possibilities that the full moon presents you with; also, mediation is a powerful tool for manifestation, so you can use it to amplify and redirect your energy.

3. Be ready to let go of what is holding you back

The light of the full moon not only brightens up the gloomy skies, but it also brings what's hidden within you to the light. All the things that have been hurting you or holding you back will be brought up to the surface, and you should allow yourself to let go. You can also write down all of the things that you want to let go of and burn that piece of paper during a full moon as a ceremony to set those things free.

4. Purify your body

Taking a relaxing bath with Epsom salts and essential oils can help you to purify and rejuvenate your body and soul. It's a chance to let go of any toxicity or negativity in your life. You can also dim your lights, light up some candles, and play some relaxing music in the background. Another thing to help purify your body during a full moon is to provide healthy food that will replenish your body naturally and healthily.

5. Channel the energy of the full moon and set new goals

The full moon is not only an opportunity to release bad energy but it's also a chance to claim positive energy and decide on new goals that you want to accomplish in your life. You can see it as an opportunity to reset your life and start fresh with even stronger energy. Empower yourself with the best version of the person that you want to be.

6. Make full moon water

Moonlight water is water 'blessed' by the full moon. On the night of the full moon, you should leave a glass of water at the reach of the moonlight. It should be spring or purified water, though. When you place the glass by the moonlight, you should focus on what you are trying to achieve, so by morning you can drink that water, and feel the blessing of the full moon on everything that you want to achieve.

7. Embrace the power of the moon

Our ancestors worshiped the full moon; it was something sacred that they genuinely believed in, so much that it was common for them to sit outside on a full moon and allow the moon to embrace them with its light. Taking moonlight baths is a rejuvenating experience that will bring instant peace and give you inner strength.

Full moon manifestation is your opportunity to turn your desires into your reality. The magnified energy of the full moon will encourage you to simplify and entrust your purpose with the help of manifestation. We manifest things by channeling energy, and perhaps the full moon is one of the most significant sources of energy available to you. Make a connection and let your desires blend in with its power and help you to turn them into reality. Embrace the moonlight and let its force guide you.
