Full Moon Guide
“How does the ‘Full Moon’ affect you, and how do you utilize its potent energy?”
During a Full Moon you have an opportunity to bring about some positive changes in your life, if you use this energy wisely. It either can increase the positive energy around you or it can be an emotional wrecking ball…the choice is yours. This guide is a helpful reminder, about how to work with the Full Moon and it’s energies.
Remember a Full Moon disperses a lot of energy, and that energy pours into each and every one of us. So the key to achieving success during a Full Moon is to stay calm, and embrace its positive effects. Whatever is going on with your mind, body and spirit will certainly be felt much stronger during a Full Moon, and our emotions can seen extremely intense. A Full Moons energy is very powerful, so it’s important to know where you’re directing it. You can start by staying focused with positive intentions.
We’ve all heard of how the Full Moon can affect us humans and causes chaos; as it fills up emergency rooms and random acts of crime spike dramatically. Not only does the Moon actually create the tides in the ocean, science has also proven that the ocean literally ‘swells’ during a Full Moon. The human body is made up of around 70% water. If the Full Moon can move an entire ocean it certainly can and does have impact on our ‘mostly water’ human bodies. Water is strongly associated with, and symbolizes our emotional well-being.
So just as the power of the Full Moon can make entire oceans swell and move, the water we hold within ourselves becomes charged up from its energy, however, this does cause emotional side effects. The energy of the Full Moon has a strong influence on us, hence why people act out as the Moon builds up to become Full, usually this starts about three days prior and can let up to three days after. Just think about how the Full Moon energy is affecting each and every one of us, literally from the inside out, it’s a very powerful, potent energy. All of the Moon’s cycles affect us differently, but they do affect us, because they’re part of us. The Full Moon perhaps having the most dramatic and noticeable impact.
Ask yourself just how much power you have? If one can stay focused and use the Full Moons energy to send out positive intentions, you can create it out here…in this physical reality. It’s really all just about being conscious and aware of what you’re creating. Water molecules have been proven to hold an emotional charge within our bodies. How you feel is how they react, and they DO react according to your energetic intentions. So if you’re happy or sad, positive or negative, the water within you is affected on a molecular level. If we concentrate on this energy and focus on what we truly desire, and then visualize that – even more importantly FEEL it – can you imagine the possibilities! We can literally create what it is we desire out here in this physical world. I find that to be exciting!

This means if we visualize and then “FEEL” our intentions – as the Moon grows full – and I mean truly “FEEL” what it is we want, we can literally transform our feelings and intentions into reality in this energy. It’s my hope you can make sense of this and use the power of positive thinking and visualization to manifest your Dreams into physical reality; the Full Moon’s energy is just the bit of Magic we need to make it happen. Let me know what you do with this info, are you brave enough to test the waters?
The Full Moons energy is both intense and loving. If you are aware of these energies, it gives you an opportunity every month for both emotional and spiritual growth. Here are some tips to follow during the Full Moon, that can help bring in more positive energies…and release old energies that just simply don’t work anymore.
1. Don’t allow arguing and don’t get angry!
The Full Moon is a time of releasing and one should stay calm, breathe deeply and let things go. Try breathing through the moments that are difficult and be forgiving. If you just can’t let something go and must express yourself, try writing how you’re feeling down or telling a friend, and wait for at least a few days after the Full Moon and then again write down how you’re feeling, see the comparison. Everything is going to be more intense and amplified. So just keep the energy flowing and moving in a happy, more uplifting direction.
2. Think positive thoughts!
During the Full Moon each month, you have very powerful, strong energies working in your corner. So if you can balance your emotions and focus on positive thoughts, they’ll be energized and multiplied. If you spend even a short amount of time upon waking and before going to sleep, visualizing what you truly desire, and on what’s good or positive in your life, while being thankful for your blessings … it can be magical! Remember “the attitude of gratitude.”
For example, write a gratitude list and some thank you notes to the Universe. Take walks and take in the beauty that is around you. Look in a mirror and say positive affirmations to yourself, (yes this really works.) Visualize positive thoughts and/or desires being sprinkled with “Moon Dust” and watch them grow like flowers in a garden.
3. Visualize your Dreams manifesting.
The Full Moon is the right time to do manifesting work around releasing what is no longer working or serving you. So sharpen your techniques by using your imagination to set goals. Take the time to write what you want to manifest or what energy you’d like to see gone or are done with. You could even make a Vision Board, with pictures that represent your goals, (it can be the actual goal or the word that represents your dreams and wishes) and place them on a cork board, make a collage…and hang it up on a wall, where you can see it everyday. This puts you in a constant state of awareness, and helps bring the energies come to you. When you spend time focusing on your dreams and goals, or Setting Intentions during the Full Moon it will give you an energy boost!
4. Practice Meditation alone or with others.
The Full Moon pours out so much energy, that meditating during one can create a calmness and stillness that is profoundly strong. Finding a sacred space to practice meditation can help tremendously. There’s a lot of groups that meditate during a Full Moon, so look for spiritual groups, centers, or online groups that come together to meditate. It can be very powerful healing and manifesting work.
5. Send others blessings, be of service, practice acts of kindness.
Having this powerful energy at your disposal, makes a Full Moon the opportune time to pay it forward! Send healing energies, forgiveness, white light and energy out… out to everyone you can think of, including strangers. Send loving and kind energy to your friends and family. Then go deeper and send peaceful energy out to the world (which we need more then ever), think of the places in the world that are experiencing strife, hardships, poverty, or war. This can open doors for those who are in need.
Whatever you believe in or faith you might have…you can’t deny the way you feel during a Full Moon, so at the very least take one small step within your heart and try to work with its energy. Test your theories and have a Blessed Full Moon!
