Creating a ceremony around the full moon can be a great practice to get into. The full moon is the mid-point of the 29-day lunar cycle. This is when the moon is fully illuminated by the Sun. Throughout history, there have been full moon ceremonies practiced by many spiritual traditions and cultures. It's a time when emotions are amplified, which can sometimes cause discomfort, but it's also a good time to process emotions to move through them so we can move forward. It's also a good time to take stock of the seeds we've sown and the goals we've set and to have gratitude for the things that have manifested lately. It's also a great time for creativity and expression.
So for new moon ceremonies, you will usually be setting intentions and goals for the future. Then at the full moon, you can take stock of what has manifested for you so far. The full moon is a great time to relax and just be present in your own energy. It's also the perfect time to charge up your crystals. The light of the full moon has tons of incredible energy that it shines down on the world to charge up the vibrations and energy of ourselves and other things.
You may have heard of people putting their crystals out under the moonlight to charge up. Well, that is the perfect plan for a full moon ceremony. We have another article which helps you through the practice of setting your crystals out under the full moon and allowing them to absorb this incredible energy. You can also pair this with a crystal grid and set up the crystals in a nice formation to activate good energy and ground it in your space or on earth. It's lovely if you have a garden that you can do this out in. Otherwise, you can always do this on a deck or a balcony, or you can even do it in your home in an area that gets the light of the full moon. Just use the techniques and tips from the article on how to make a crystal grid and apply them to this full moon ceremony.
It's also a great idea to write out all of the things that you're truly grateful for during the full moon. This helps us become present in the moment and to appreciate the life we have. Sometimes life can get so busy that we forget to appreciate all of the things we do have around us right now. So write out at least three things you're grateful for each full moon and see if you notice a positive change in your life. You can also gather with friends on the full moon to enjoy a small and safe campfire in your yard or in another outdoor area that you enjoy being in. Create ceremony by going around in a circle and talking about the things that you've been grateful for in the past month, or something that was difficult and how you're experiencing that difficulty.
Since the full moon is all about amplified emotions, it's great to get out all of the emotions you've been holding onto and to let them out. So even if you're not with a group of people, you could just write them out on a piece of paper to process them and then burn them in the fire. Crystals that are great for the full moon are Moonstone, of course. Labradorite is also great as well as Rose Quartz and Opal. Enjoy the process and see if you can also add your own elements of ceremony to make it your very own personal practice.
