Full Moon’s are always a perfect time to check in with yourself and to take inventory of your life.
Are you feeling good about yourself or are you feeling negative? Do you feel like you are on track in your life or do you feel like you are off balance?
By taking the time to tune in and check in with yourself, you can become aware of your thoughts, behaviours and patterns, and what changes need to be made so you can live the life you desire.
The life you lead is simply made up of the thoughts you think and the actions you take, so if you want to change your life, starting with your thoughts and actions is a great place to begin.
Full Moon’s always have a way of drawing things out of us, which is why they are such a potent time to connect within and take inventory.
Under the light of the March 31st Libra Full Moon, we are all going to be guided to release things that are blocking us from finding balance and to cleanse away any stagnant or stuck energy that is weighing us down.
This ritual will help you to harness this energy and will help to clear and cleanse away all that is stopping you from finding balance and harmony from within.
Libra Blue Moon Ritual for Cleansing
This ritual is best done between March 31st- April 8th, 2018
You will need:
Your favorite smudging tool
3 of your favorite crystals*
Bowl of water
Sea salt or Himalayan Salt
Incense/Essential Oil burner
*Because you will be placing your crystals in salt water, avoid using crystals that end in “-ite” like selenite and calcite as they could be damaged by the water. Every crystal is unique and there is a chance that it may not react well to salt water, so if you prefer you can substitute with flowers or herbs.
1.) Have all of the ingredients for your ritual out in front of you on a table or on the floor. Set up your space by lighting your candle, and having the incense or essential oil burner on. This will help to set the mood.
2.) Begin by smudging your aura and your entire space. For specific instructions on how to do this read this. As you cleanse recite the following mantra or write your own –
“Dear spirit guides and guardian angels of the highest light, I ask that you cleanse and release me and my space from all energy that no longer serves my highest good. I ask that you gently loosen me from the grips of patterns, attitudes, thoughts and beliefs that are keeping me stuck, I ask that you cleanse me of any heavy weight that is no longer mine to carry. I set the intention and know that it is done. Thank You. Thank You. Thank You.”
3.) Get comfortable and hold your crystals/flowers in your hand. Take a few breaths here. As you breathe, try to inhale deep into your belly. Feel your belly and ribs expanding on every inhale and contracting on every exhale. Repeat this belly breathing for 7 breaths.
4.) Keeping your crystals close to you, take your bowl of water and sprinkle in some of the salt. Swirl the water with your finger and recite the following (feel free to edit to make it your own)-
“As I stir the water is cleansed, as I stir the power of my intention is infused into the water. I intend this water to cleanse my mind, body, and soul. I intend this water to recharge my spirit and fuel me with the energy of Divine love.”
5.) Now you are going to assign each of your crystals (or flowers/herbs if using) with an intention. Your intention can be to release something, but it can also be to bring something into your life as well. There is no right or wrong here, so just do whatever your heart feels guided to do. (The best way to do this is to hold the crystals one by one for a moment, feel into them and then see what guidance emerges.)
6.) Once you have an intention for your crystal, hold your crystal in your hand, feel your intention, whisper it into the crystal and then drop it into the bowl of salt water. Repeat this for all crystals.
7.) Now taking your finger, dip it into the water and gently brush the water over your third eye chakra (middle of your eyebrows) and on the nape of your neck. You can also brush the water on your navel, heart center, and on the bottoms of your feet. These are all places of the body that are sensitive to receiving and releasing energy.
8.) Hold your hands in prayer position over your heart and speaking from the heart, make a prayer/wish for yourself. Thank your angels and guides and leave the bowl of water out overnight. Be sure to blow out your candle before sleeping.
*If you are nervous to leave your crystals in the salt water overnight, take them out, dry them and place them around the bowl of water.
9.) In the morning, take the water and wash your hands in it. As you wash your hands forgive yourself and release yourself from any lingering energy or thoughts that may have come up for you overnight. As you wash your hands repeat- “I am cleansed, I am light.”
Happy Full Moon!
