Full moons bring closures, endings……..but each ending brings a new beginning with the dawn…….
I taught Moon Meditations when I had my Reiki practice. These were intense, hour long sessions to focus intentions and clear away any baggage dragging a spirit down.
There are a few simple things you can do to perform a type of closure and cleansing ceremony if you wish to end something negative and begin something positive in your life.
Fire is cleansing…….you can write an intention on a piece of paper…….something you wish to be rid of, a habit, a person, a job……whatever this may be. Fold it and then burn it. Be careful if you choose to do this one. Write down your list of negative emotions or negative people in your life…….you can tear the paper in tiny bits and pieces and toss it to the wind tonight, under the glow of the Full Moon. Then, focus on the Intention of letting them GO……..
You can write down a list of things you wish to be rid of, tear up the paper in tiny bits, and vacuum them up. Just throw the vacuum contents out “away” from your home. Place them outside in a garbage can, waiting for pick up to a distant dump, so your negative things will be rid of as well.
Easier and similarly cleansing, is a water ceremony. Fill a bowl with water, I used a large crystal bowl in my office, for crystal is very powerful. Write down your intention, fold it in many pieces, then dip your hands in the bowl and wash them………thus, washing away the energy of the words. Dispose of the paper, preferably out of your home…….You may light a candle for the spark of inspiration to carry this intention into the dawn and beyond. Whether simply jotting down your “get rid of” list and ripping it to shreds, or more elaborating casting it to fire…..use the Full Moon of endings to initiate a beginning with the morning sun.
The Full Moon is very powerful……..use her to help you manifest what it is you wish to leave your life……….
Also, place any crystals in her glow…..on a windowsill, in a safe, garden spot…….she will cleanse them for you and then you may place a new intention into them. Be aware if you live in a snow laden area, that some types of stones should not get wet, so be careful placing them outside.
Wear a favorite piece of silver tonight…….for silver is associated with the moon…….If you have moonstones, pearls, opal……..these stones reflect the luminous light of Luna and will bring her energy to you…………
Hope this helps…………The moon’s energy has profound effect on us……just as the tides affect our physical bodies, comprised of water and our emotional bodies, comprised of energy.
