1.) Eat light & clean, your emotions are intensified at this time. Eating poorly will cause discomfort, bringing forth unstable emotions & enhanced bad moods. You need to be comfortable in your body at this time. This is a good time to do some light fasting.
2.) Your psychic intuition is stronger at this time & if your emotional self is balanced, you’ll notice a great amount of clarity during Full Moons, which can help better guide your path. Allow your subconscious to come forth & journal the thoughts or images that come to mind. This will help you understand what may be holding you back from your goals & what it is you need to release.
3.) Bathe yourself & your crystals in the Light of the Full Moon & open your heart to the Goddess energy. Find a clearing & seek the light, set up a chair or blanket outside and recharge your spirit & your current favorite crystals. Hang out time with the Moon.
4.) Hold a Full Moon ritual with your closest friends or kindred spirits. Have everyone come with positive intent & a white candle. In a circle, offer a full smudging to each person, helping them to release their burdens. Then holding hands around the candles, ask the Goddess energy to fill each one of you with love & light, as you each set forth on new ambitions, awakening to new levels of awareness every month. Say a prayer with your friends, share your gratitudes & close the circle with hugs all around. You can also hold a ‘Drawing down the Moon’ Ritual.
5.) Give yourself a good smudging, ground whatever negative energies have been hindering your positive thinking. Once the smudging is complete from bottoms of the feet, to the top of the head, anoint yourself with your favorite oil, raising your vibrations & blessing yourself for the next month to come.
6.) Get in touch with your senses. Your sensitivity levels during a full moon are heightened, so use this to your advantage. For touch Take a warm bath or lay on some warm sand. For sound, relax with some soothing music & embrace the subtle sounds of the wind & nearby animals. Taste the sweetness & flavors of fruits & teas. Bring comforting aromas into your sacred space, like Lavender, Frankincense or Sandalwood. Grace your vision with the dancing flames of candles or the ripples in a nearby lake or stream.
7.) Create some Full Moon charged water 1 day prior. Using a clean piece of Rose Quartz & Rose petals or Lavender buds, Fill a bowl or jar with some Spring water & let all the contents sit overnight under the moonlight. You can create a Mandala around the jar or light a ring of candles. The next day, on the Full Moon, strain it’s contents, & you can use your new Full Moon Goddess Water to drink, wash your face or rinse in, cleanse your altar tools, etc. Do whatever you are drawn to do.
8.) Activate the Blood & energy flow in your body (temple,) with some simple Yoga Moon Salutations. Reconnect to your breathe & the healing energies of the Full Moon, as you release your worries and troubles, and allow yourself to come back to your center.
9.) Meditate. The emotions you display on the outside are a projection of how you feel on the inside. The emotional pull of the moon will help you discover that, so make sure to take some extra time to connect with your soul & find out what your body, mind & spirit need. Surrender to the flow & sacred energy around & within you.
10.) Create. Like the Moon creating light & healing energy for us, you too can create from an energy of Light. Make something to heal yourself or others for the next Full Moon. Create some herbal incense, oil blends, a special candle, a poem or prayer, jewelry, etc. So many things can be made, to prepare for the next Full Moon or gifts meant for loved ones, but do not overwork yourself. Remember to take it easy & work in the highest vibration of Love.
