A 2-Day Practice to Harness the Full Moon Energy
A Full Moon is a magnifier. An amplifier. So ask yourself, where is your energy at right now? If you’ve ever felt emotional around the time of the full moon, that’s likely the reason why. It amplifies your internal environment, which is why it’s so important to make sure your energy is clean and clear before the full moon arrives.
Clearing Tips to Do The Day Before This Full Moon
To take full advantage of this full moon, use the day before to clear your space and energy. We've listed our favorite tips below, but use any other preferred method of cleansing to make sure you release and shed all unwanted energy before you head into the full moon.
- Sage your space. Get the smoke into all the nooks and crannies.
- Clear your mind with Selenite. Waft the wand in a sweeping motion over your forehead 10 times, and then flick that energy away down towards the Earth.
- Give your body a good salt scrub or salt soak. Salt is a detoxifier. Allow it to pull any impurities out so it can wash away.
- Play these Space Clearing mantras throughout your space today to break up any stuck energy.
On the Night of the Full Moon
On the night of the full moon, you can harness the powerful and transformational energy to supercharge your crystals and your own energy. Take this time to focus on what you want to release from your energy field so you can make room for what you truly want in life. The full moon energy can help you amplify your radiance, and cut ties with any behaviors, thoughts, or beliefs that you want to let go of, setting you up for success in manifesting your dreams. This lunar moment also simultaneously raises your vibration to give an energetic boost to any intentions, wishes, goals, or ideas you are currently manifesting that have not yet come to fruition.
For this full moon practice, you’ll need:
- A piece of paper
- A pen
- A selenite crystal of your choice to release unwanted energy and connect with the energy of the moon. We love using a Selenite cleansing crystal or a Selenite Moon Crystal
- A Full Moon Crystal Candle
- A Full Moon Ritual Oil
- A Moon Mist Spray
Step 1: Letting Go and Checking In
On the top half of a piece of paper, write down your intentions for the full moon and this lunar cycle. These could be patterns you want to change, feelings you want to release, behaviors you want to leave behind –– anything you want to let go of to move forward as a higher version of yourself. On the bottom half of the paper, write down any wishes, intentions, goals, or ideas that you want to manifest and bring to fruition. After writing these down on the paper, place the paper underneath your Selenite. Crystal Tip: To enhance the energy of your intentions, you can place a crystal on top of the Selenite moon to represent your intention (for example, a Rose Quartz stone for releasing self-judgement or a Pyrite stone for letting go of a self-limiting money mind-set).
Once your mini moon altar is in place, program your crystals with the intention of releasing and manifesting everything you wrote down on the paper.
Step 2: Amplifying and Magnifying
After completing the reflection exercise above and programming your crystals for your intentions, light your Full Moon Candle to bring your intentions to light and maximize your energetic potential. Light your candle each day for the 3 days following the full moon to keep the energy going and harness the full potential of this phase of the moon cycle.
Leave your intentions, Selenite, and any additional crystals in place to soak up the full moon energy and let it remain there until the New Moon.
For each of the three days following the full moon, use the Full Moon Crystal Oil Roller to align your own energy with the full moon and maximize your energetic potential and manifestation power. This allows you to harness the energetic momentum of the full moon on a personal level. To enhance the energy of your space, spray the Moon Mist Spray throughout your home and especially around the area where you have your intentions, Selenite and crystals. This will raise the vibration of your environment to support your manifestations.
