“Setting Intentions with the Full Moon”
This is an opportune time to ask the Universe to bless and release whatever you need to let go of, and do away with, and what doesn’t serve you. The intentions that are set during a “Full Moon” will set you on the right path towards your hopes, wishes, and desires by helping you release old pains and experiences that just have held you down or blocked you up! It’s time to get the old stuff out for good now.
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
What to work on during the Full Moon:
*Letting go of both the people and situations that aren’t working anymore (sometimes it is just an attitude or thought)
*Clearing space for new energies to come in
*Being GRATEFUL for what you already have and what will be
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 you 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 suppressed. So ask for the truths to be revealed during this time.
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 are simply 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 with the Full Moon energy
You’re going to need a notebook, paper, or a journal and something to write with. Think about where you’re going to perform your energy work at. Because we create an energy vortex wherever we sit or sleep or do spiritual work! This is why you feel so comfortable in your favorite chair, not only because it feels safe and secure, but also because you have created an energy vortex in that spot or space.
Next, you will write what energy you’d like the Universe to bring in and remove both. Simply write your deepest truths, wishes, and questions down. 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 out of your life, and what energy you’re trying to bring in, and be detailed but don’t go overboard. Don’t forget to leave room for the energies to shift, change and mold what you’re creating. Sometimes these things take time, but you also may want to learn how to hear the messages or receive signs from the Universe, usually it’s a very subtle energy. But over time usually, your questions will be answered.
As you’re doing this work and setting your intentions, here are some helpful questions you can think about … for example; Ask for what you are choosing to come into your life and what changes you would like to see happen? What are you or should you be letting go of? How do you feel about what is happening in your life now? What do you want to release? Think about your long-term goals and your future, and what energy you’d like to create over the coming months.
Step Four: Visualize what you’re Creating
Now you’re going to visualize what you have written. First get comfortable again, preferably in the same place and read what you wrote. 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. Don’t just think about it, now make sure and “FEEL IT,” as if you were really experiencing what you’re visualizing. So if it makes you laugh, cry, scream or whatever, then go with it.
Step Five: Gratitude
It’s very important to work on releasing what you don’t want in your life during a Full Moon, but it’s equally as important to not leave a VOID after you are done. Which looks like you filling that space up with gratitude for what you do have and around the work you are doing. When we focus on what it is we don’t have we are focusing on “Lack”, and that will only bring in the things you don’t have. Remember what we put our attention on is what will show up! So instead think and feel the things you are grateful for in your heart, Ask yourself what makes you happy that is in your life right now! That way you are attracted more of that kind of “feeling” which will bring in more of the good feeling kind of energy, and that can make you way happier than getting all wrapped up in what isn’t in your life or being held captive by your pains and traumas.
Allow the Universe to show you what path to follow over the next 30 days, and let the Full Moon light up the way! Hopefully, you’ll at least be put on a path towards what you truly desire, all while letting go of what you don’t need anymore.
Have a safe and blessed Full Moon
