How To Cleanse Your Space In Alignment with the Moon Cycle

Heather Askinosie|September 14, 2020

The moon cycle is a natural part of life, and learning to live in tune with the moon can allow you to find more synchronicity and feel more supported by nature. One often overlooked part of aligning with the moon cycle is cleansing as it relates to both your home and your own energy. Just as you choose specific parts of the moon cycle to set new intentions or work with specific crystals for the moon phases, selecting specific cleansing tools in alignment with each phase of the moon cycle can enhance your energy clearing practices.

But how do you know which energy cleansing tools to use at what phase? We’re breaking it down and making it easy for you to get the most out of your clearing sessions with this step-by-step guide to cleansing in alignment with the moon: 

The Day Before the New Moon:

Sage is the perfect cleansing tool to use right before the new moon because it purifies your energy and environment so you have a clean slate to plant your seeds and set new intentions. It allows you to have a completely fresh start at the start of the lunar cycle, which is the new moon. 

Between the New + Full Moons:

During the time after the new moon and before the full moon is a great time to use copal. Copal resin has both a cleansing and purifying effect, but it can also be used as an offering to the higher realms. Since during this phase of the lunar cycle you are working on actualizing the intentions you set at the new moon, an offering can be a powerful way to build momentum and gain support for your intentions. At the same time, you are working on releasing any limitations or unwanted energy that may be blocking you from manifesting at the highest frequency, so the clearing and purifying effect can also serve you well.

On The Full Moon:

The full moon is the time to maximize your energetic potential and bring your intentions to full fruition. To support you, call upon the sweet and harmonious energy of Palo Santo. The sacred energy of this cleansing wood can help you bring in blessings and call upon the angel realm to raise your vibration and amplify your intentions. 

Between the Full Moon and the next New Moon:

Finally, as you come down from the high frequency of the full moon and prepare for the next new moon and the start of the next moon cycle, it’s time to bring in the Frankincense resin. This energetic disinfectant can help you to clear out the previous cycle and anything that no longer serves you so you are ready to take on the next cycle. 

So are you ready to take your clearing and cleansing rituals to the next level? Try changing up your tools and harness the energy of these energy clearing essentials to make the most out of each moon cycle.
