Full Moon Rituals: Harnessing the Power of the Moon for Spiritual Growth and Energy Cleansing
What can the moon do for you?
The full moon has been revered and celebrated by various cultures for centuries, with ancient traditions that date back to prehistoric times.
The moon represents a powerful spiritual force, and its energy can be harnessed to transform and heal.
Unfortunately, we've forgotten this.
Many modern-day mamas have lost their ancestral draw to the moon. We've forgotten that moon phases are part of the natural rhythm of life and the lunar cycle has a profound impact on our emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being.
The full moon, in particular, is a time of heightened awareness and energy, making it the perfect opportunity for spiritual practices and rituals.
In this article, we will explore the power of the full moon and how you can incorporate full-moon rituals into your spiritual practice.
Get ready to reconnect with a longer-serving ancient practice using full moons each month.
The Spiritual Significance of the Full Moon
If you only want to know the "how," feel free to scroll down. If you'd like to know a little more about the why, let me fill you in.
The moon represents the feminine, intuitive, and emotional aspects of ourselves. It is associated with the cycles of life and death, and the ebb and flow of our own energy centers.
The full moon marks a time of abundance, fullness, and completion, and it is a time to release negative energy and set intentions for positive change.
Full moon energy is powerful and intense, and it can bring up negative feelings and emotions that need to be addressed.
This is why it is important to harness this energy in a positive way, to prevent it from manifesting as negative energy in our lives.
Full moon rituals can help to release negative energy and bring in positive energy, and they can be done in a variety of ways.
Now, if you're stuck on the word "ritual" and its witchy sound, don't be. You can replace it with routine, practice, custom, or some other term.
Here are some of my favorite ways to harness lunar energy.
Get a Spiritual Surprise Box
I started creating these boxes to help my clients use the moon's power!
Each carefully curated box is packed with a variety of unique and mystical items designed to help you discover new spiritual practices and connect with your inner self.
Inside each box, you'll find a range of items that have been hand-picked by me (Mary Elizabeth.) From crystals and essential oils to tarot cards and smudge sticks, each item has been specifically chosen to help you on your spiritual journey.
With each box, you can also add a personalized reading allowing you to tap into your unique energy and discover new insights into your spiritual path as you receive messages from Spirit.
Whether you're a seasoned spiritual practitioner or just starting out on your journey, the Moon Over Medium Spiritual Surprise Box is the perfect way to deepen your spiritual practice and connect with the energy of the universe.
Creating Sacred Space
Creating a sacred space is an important part of any full moon ritual. This can be done by burning incense or using essential oils to create a peaceful and calming environment. You can also set up an altar with crystals, tarot cards, or other objects that hold spiritual significance for you. You can also light candles as a way to better connect with the moon's energy.
Energy cleansing is an important part of any full moon ritual. This involves releasing negative energy and clearing the energy in your space. This can be done through smoke cleansing with sage or other herbs, or by using a glass jar filled with water and salt to absorb negative energy.
Get a Tarot Reading
Part of your full moon rituals to-do list should be to get a tarot reading from Moon Over Medium. I would love to help you remove bad energy, strengthen your own intuition, and add to your self-care routine, all while using my gifts as a tarot reader to see into your future. The full moon can help.
Deep Breathing and Meditation
A full moon meditation is a favorite practice! Deep breathing and meditation are powerful tools for connecting with your inner self and harnessing the energy of the full moon.
It doesn't have to be fancy. Just take a few moments to sit quietly and focus on your breath, allowing yourself to sink into a deep state of relaxation.
Setting intentions is an important part of any full moon ritual. This involves thinking about what you want to release or let go of at this time. The natural rhythms of the moon cycle make this an optimum time for letting go. After your meditation, make a list of anything you want to let go of. This could be actual events, memories, fears, or emotions.
Moon bathing is a powerful ancient tradition used to connect with the energy of the full moon.
This involves bathing in moon water, which is water that has been charged with the energy of the full moon. Simply place a jar of water on your window sill during the full moon and let it soak up the lunar light.
Use this water along with a Spiritual Soak to release! These soaks are handmade from special salts, essential oils, and flowers. This can help to cleanse your energy and promote relaxation at the same time.
Don't have moon water? You can still use the soak along with other ritual aspects to make an amazing full moon bath.
The moon has been revered for centuries as a powerful symbol of feminine energy and spiritual power. Full moon rituals and other lunar practices can help you connect with the energy of the moon and harness its power to transform your life. By tapping into the natural rhythms of the lunar cycle, you can deepen your connection to your own inner power and find new ways to manifest your desires.
