“Setting Intentions” with the Full Moon
This is an opportune time to ask the Universe for new beginnings. To bless and release whatever you need to let go of, and do away with what doesn’t serve you. The intentions that are set during a “Full Moon” will set you on the right path towards your desires.
During the full moon we often experience an energy shift. So we must release the old energies, to be open for the new energies that will be coming in.
What to Release under a Full Moon:
* Lower energies
* Negative patterns or bad habits
* Unhealthy situations or relationships
Have a conversation with the Universe (meaning your higher power, Guides, Angels, etc), and ask the “Full Moon” to help illuminate the path that leads towards your deepest desires. Simply ask to be led to what you’re choosing to manifest. Remember to allow the time needed for your guides to light the way, it doesn’t always happen right away, but sometimes magic happens and it does. The Full Moon illuminates and is symbolic for seeing what’s been hidden, secret, tucked away or surpressed.
What if you don’t know how to “Set Intentions” under the Full Moon. Follow the Steps below to learn how:
Step One: Clear your sacred space
Clear the energy of the area or room you’re using to do Full Moon work in. You’ll simply be calling in some positive energy to work with. Burn some Sage or Incense and clear the energies. Next close your eyes and breathe deeply … and call your Guides, Angels, or higher-power in and ask to have your sacred space cleared of any negative energy, and then to fill it up with the energy of love and light. Never leave energy empty, always fill it with something once you’ve cleared it.
Step Two: Set the atmosphere
Set the mood for your “Full Moon” Ritual and again burn some special incense, light some candles (colors do have different meanings) and play some music that helps you feel spirituality connected. This can be very different for everyone. Just makes sure to use whatever tools or colors that make you feel calm, happy, and peaceful.
Step Three: Setting Intentions
You’re going to need a notebook, paper, or a journal and something to write with. Think about where you’re going to do your work at, because we create an energy vortex wherever we sit or sleep. This is why you feel so comfortable in your favorite chair, because it’s feels safe and secure, but also because you have created an energy vortex in that spot or space.
Now write what energy you’d like the Universe to bring in and remove both. Simply write your deepest desires, wishes and questions. Think about what energy you’re trying to let go of and release. Write your letter like as if you were talking to an old friend. Think about what energy you’re trying to push into your life and be detailed, but don’t go overboard. Leave room for the energies to shift, change and mold what you’re creating.
As you’re doing this work and setting your intentions, here’s some helpful questions you can think about … for example; ask what you’re choosing or what changes you would like to see in your life? What are you or should you be letting go of? How do you feel about what is happening in your life now, and what do you want to release? Think about your long-term goals and future, and what energy you’d like to create over the next month.
Step four: Visualize what you’re creating
Now you’re going to visualize what you’ve written. Close your eyes and take long deep breaths, in your nose and out your mouth. See the energy of your heart center, that’s in the middle of your chest (not your pumping heart) but your spiritual heart or commonly referred to as the “Heart Chakra.” Visualize yourself in what you’re trying to create or manifest. For example; see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with that great Soul-Mate, driving that new car. Just don’t think it, make sure and “FEEL IT,” as if you were really experiencing what you’re visualizing.
Allow the Universe to show you what paths to follow over the next 30 days, let the Full Moon light up the path you are supposed to be going down, so you may bring in what you truly desire, while letting go of what you don’t need.
