My daughters’ name was supposed to be Luna. My husband won and we ended up with an Ella- which is absolutely perfect because she is SO an Ella. For as long as I can remember, I have had “a thing” with the moon. I can feel her pull. I feel her GLO on my shoulders and I can feel her cycles run through my body. She gets me, I get her, we are friends.
I’ve always found full moons special and I try and be mindful during the full moon to be intentional with my actions and requests. The full moon is the perfect time to be intentional with that which you would like to manifest.
Tonight marks the Snow Moon and I will be gathering with my hubs to manifest the shizzz out of all that we desire. It doesn’t take much to create your own full moon ceremony, just some good vibes, heart desires and maybe a little essential oil and sage sesh to start it off right. Here are 4 four easy steps to have your own full moon ritual:
- Sage bundle or Palo Santo stick (or both!)
- dōTERRA essential oils (Litsea, Lemongrass, Wild orange, Rosemary)
- Crystals (this is the best time to charge them!)
- Candle & matches
- Small, non flammable container (like an aluminum bowl)
Gather outside if you can (under the moon is best). If you are inside, try to find a space where you can look outside, like near a window or on a patio. Light your candles and Sage the area. Lay out your crystals around you. Take a moment to settle in. Feel the moon and all her GLOry.
Take your essential oils and add a drop to the palm of your hands. Rub your hands together and cup your hands over your nose to inhale. Feel your breath as it is drawn in and out of you. Repeat with each oil you chose. Think about the coming months and what you want that to look like. Do you see a project coming on? Do you see yourself finishing a project that is already in the works? Maybe you’d like to fill you inner circle with some new like-minded, high vibing peeps. Whatever it is, let you imagination run with it.
Now that you have created a picture of what you’d like to manifest, grab your paper and pen and begin writing. “They” say that the act of putting your ideas down on paper, takes the thought and moves it into action. This is an important step, don’t skip it! Write until you have all of thoughts down. When you are done, read the content you just spilled out onto the paper. You can read it to yourself or share it with others, it doesn’t matter.
Now take the flame from either the candle or matches and light the paper on fire. This part is so mesmerizing for me. I imagine that my desires are being pulled from the page by the flames and lifted to the sky with the smoke. I love it.
Pour some water on your burnt paper and you can discard the contents (No body needs a fire in their home!).
That’s it! Super simple, super fun. It is your responsibility to participate relentlessly in the manifestation of your dreams. You and only you alone can make all that you desire come true. Write that shizzz down, send it to the universe, and work every damn day to make it happen. Throw in a full moon ceremony tonight and let me know how it goes ;).
