The full moon is a magical time of the month full of potential. This time is a beautiful opportunity for cleansing negative energies and a cosmic chance to set intentions for manifestation during the future periods of the lunar cycle. Connecting with the flow of the moon connects us with the natural cycles of the Earth and the universe.
What is a Full Moon Ritual?
During a full moon, the energies of the universe are at the highest expansion and are ready to help you release whatever you may be holding on to. This time of the month is a perfect chance to let go of things that no longer serve you, cleansing your body, mind, soul, and physical spaces.
Full moon rituals allow you to harness this cosmic energy of the moon into a physical potential in your life and your space. Full moon rituals take many different forms, and as you set up your full moon ritual, it is essential to let your intuition and inner wisdom guide you in manifesting the energies that feel right to you.
How to Practice a Full Moon Ritual with Sacred Smudging
- Cleansing Your Space
A vital component of every full moon ritual is the physical cleansing of your home, altar, sacred space, and body. Use this time to clean up your home, put on fresh sheets, do a deep cleaning of the kitchen, and let some fresh air into your home. You can also energetically cleanse your home using organic white sage smoke.
- Bathing in the Moon
One of the most important rituals to perform during a full moon ceremony is a moon bath. Absorbing the physical energy of the moon allows you to align your inner energies with the outer energies of the moon and nature. You can practice this ritual by taking a short walk outside or meditating in a peaceful garden during the night. If you prefer not to go outside, you can also take a bath in your home. But make sure to set the tone of the room to be a bit darker with some soft candles to harness the lunar energy in your bath.
- Performing Sacred Smudging
Sacred smudging is the practice of burning organic white sage and cleansing your home and body with the smoke. The cleansing smoke from this ritual actually purifies the air and releases any negative energies that may be blocking up your body, mind, and home. Allow this smoke to flow wherever it needs to.
- Connecting with Your Intuitive Inner Guide
The most important component of every full moon ritual is connecting with your own inner guide on what feels right for you during this ceremony. There are a limitless number of things you can do during a full moon ritual, so allow your inner voice to guide you towards what feels needed at this moment. Some ideas to help get you started are charging your crystals outside, making an offering, performing a lunar dance, releasing your emotions, practicing yoga, reading your Tarot cards, journaling, or anything else your heart desires!
