Full Moon Ritual
The Full Moon is an opportune time of the month for purging rituals to take place. The light the full moon illuminates those things that are interfering with our spiritual advancements. Once we have become enlightened to ways that are blocking us, the easier it is “to let go”. The full moon ritual is for releasing or purging the things in our lives that no longer serve us such as addictions to food, emotional vampires, drama, unhappy jobs, relinquishing suffering involved in hurtful relationships, discharging physical and emotional pains, etc.
Full Moon Purging Preparation
Create a sacred space and arrange a time to perform the ceremony (preferably at nighttime and outdoors under the moonlight).
Write down on separate slips of paper the things you want to release or change.
Supply suggestions: fire proof Calderon or cooking pot to toss the burning paper inside, candle with matches or lighter, crystal (moonstone) and smudge sticks for cleansing and any other tools that you like to use. Be creative and make it fun.
Full Moon Purging
Cleanse your sacred area with an opening prayer, a sage smudging, and/or by burning some incense. Invite your guides, angels, masters, or teachers to be at your side throughout the ceremony.
Light one or more candles. Look to the skies. Breathe in the night air.
One by one, read out loud the words you have written on each slip of paper. Set your intention to release the item/addiction/attitude from your life. Set it to fire and place it in the Calderon. If you are doing this ritual with a group of others take turns reading your words. If these things are too personal to read out loud, read them silently to yourself. Just remember… our words have power. Saying – “Be Gone” audibly and loudly can be very freeing. Go ahead, howl at the moon if you’ve a mind to. Have some fun!
Thank the spirits. Be safe. Put out the fire.
A second notebook will be used as a manifestation scrapbook where you paste in pictures or catalog clippings of items that you want to manifest. This is a fun project so enjoy yourself. You will soon be amazed how these things begin to find their way into your life once you start this process.
Rededicating your New Moon Intentions
The new moon is a perfect time to revisit what it is you have let go and bring in the things that you you need. Take the time to write out your wants and add it to your ritual.
