The time of the Full Moon is often a very special time, where we come to the end of a phase in our lives, a project or an emotion. It is the end of a cycle and the beginning of a new one.
This full moon on the 4th November 2017 in Taurus brings up magic - use it wisely. It is a full moon full of hope and expansion - a time to dive deep and look what beautiful secrets are still hidden inside of you.
Many of us can feel the influence of the full moon as emotional states of being sensitive, overwhelmed or sometimes even a bit angry or shaken. That is all ok and normal and instead of not using this energy and being stagnant, we should instead turn it into something that moves us forward on our paths.
I am sharing with you today a 2 step Full Moon Release Ritual, that I often held on my retreats or trainings. During the time I was living in India I learned to see rituals not as something religious or as a strict follow-through routine but as a sacred, heart-opening and powerful offering towards something higher than myself.
I invite you not to use your mind too much and try to understand everything with it (because that is absoluelty not possible) but instead go into feeling and open yourself up to the idea that you are connected to this universe, the sun, the moon and the stars. And that you consist of the same energy. And that you are a powerful human being of light that deserves all the blessing of the universe.
Full Moon Release Ritual
A ritual to release the past, to release what doesn't serve anymore and create space for new beginnings.
-find a space where you can be for yourself for about 10 minutes.
-you will ned 2 pieces of paper.
-prepare yourself by washing your hands and putting on some comfortable clothes.
-prepare the space by lightning some candles, incense or smudging some sage.
-if you want to listen to music I prepared a playlist on Spotify called "Full moon magic" and recommend the first song ("Aad Guray Nameh" by the talented Jai-Jagdesh).
-Sit in a comfortable position. Choose if you want to listen to a mantra or sit in silence. Both is great.
-Close your eyes and ask yourself these question; "What does not serve me anymore?" "What does not belong to my life anymore?" " What am I repressing?" "What does not serve my higher purpose?" "In this moment, what can I let go of?"
-Take about 3 minutes and do not try to judge whatever is coming up and instead allowing it to flow. Take your piece of paper and write it all down.
This can be 1 word or 2 sites of words, that is all up to you.
-Read it out loud again as if you were reading it to the moon and then tear this peace of paper into pieces - if you have a fireproof place you can even burn it carefully in a candle but only if you have a fireproof vessel close to you and it is absolutely safe to do so.
-Close your eyes again and feel the liberation of everything that you just teared apart on that piece of paper. You can even imagine a bright flame at your 3rd eye point (Ajna Chakra) - the point in between your eyebrows. When you close your eyes try to look at this point, looking up just a little and relaxing the eyeballs. This flame will clear your whole body and even the energetic body around your physical body.
-Now for a moment think about what serves your path, what serves you? What is it that helps you to stay happy, joyful and at peace?
-Open your eyes and fully allow yourself to feel into these things, feelings or anything that came up for you. And then write these words and intentions down on the other piece of paper.
Read it out loud again as if you were reading it to the moon and close with this affirmation:
'I am a powerful loved human being and I deserve all the light and blessings of the universe flowing towards and through me."
Keep this piece of paper close to you - at least unitl the next New Moon and from time to time look it up, read it or just connect to the words.
I hope you enjoy this ritual, sending you love and blessing, Nicole.
