Have you been involved in a deep and committed relationship to the moon? She’s just too powerful, too giving and too beautiful not to get involved with right?!
The Moon takes 27.3 days to orbit Earth, but the lunar phase cycle (from New Moon to Full Moon) is 29.5 days. The cyclical nature of the moon’s energy offers us the opportunity to set intentions for the month ahead - at the new moon and the start of the cycle. When the Full Moon rolls around, it’s time to release any energy that is no longer serving you.
If you haven’t spent any time with the moon’s energy yet, why not give it a try? Here are some beautiful things you can do to start to align a little more closely with the lunar energy…
Write down everything you want to release and let go of. Be it fear of failure, lack of self-love or just even past relationships. Get it all down on pen and paper. Nothing is too silly, big or heavy – you can choose to release it all.
LET IT GO:
Burn it, throw it away, do whatever feels good – but mostly – let it go! This act allows new energy into your space. I love the ritual of burning what I want to let go of. Seeing what you want to release going up in smoke is pretty deep and symbolic.
Have a deep contemplative think about what you want to bring into your world in the coming weeks, months and even years. Spend some time thinking about what it looks like. Dream it, visualise it, feel it.
Write out your dreams as positive affirmations – sentences that proclaim that you already have what you desire e.g. “I am in a loving, passionate and fulfilling relationship” or “Money comes easily and frequently to me”
Carve out a little ritual for yourself. This is my favourite part. You could spend some time meditating and visualising your new reality, or perhaps light some candles and create a vision board. You might decide to get together with a friend and discuss your manifestations together – or work on a piece of art that reflects your wishes. Perhaps you even like to charge your crystals or crystal jewellery under the light of the full moon? When it comes to positive rituals, anything goes.
Then it’s time to just trust. Often the hardest part to do, but when you do, you let the lunar magic take over and work her special energy.
