The phases of the moon influence the growth or decline of plants and animals and is extremely powerful in influencing human life and our behavioral patterns.
Full moon rituals have the power to recharge and recalibrate our energy. Carving out space to go inward and take stock of what’s showing up for us creates the opportunity to create intentions and find rhythmicity in our own lives. Unlike the new moon, the full moon represents fruitfulness and completeness and brings with it a lot of energy. Plus, you ultimately live more in sync with your natural environment and in your truth, when you commit to learning how to manifest with the moon, in all of Her phases.
When the moon is full, its strong gravitational pull on the Earth makes for a time of peak creative energy and incredibly powerful intuitive breakthroughs. It’s about embodiment. The full moon accentuates everything that you’ve been working on during the waxing phase and is a great time to take part in manifesting rituals. The beautiful thing about rituals, especially those related to the moon, is that they invite you to get quiet, reflect and celebrate. They ask us to plant seeds of intention and be one with the energy of our environment, free from distractions.
Here are 5 Powerful Steps to activate the full moon manifestation energy and make the most of your rituals during this powerfully magickal time of the month
- Gather your ritual tools and inspiring activation supplies
Gather the things that make you feel inspired like the things you might want to get in order to create vision boards or art (enter magazines, pieces of fabric, watercolors) and even think of what type of music inspires you (we like to have a playlist ready to use during our vision boarding process) and of course tarot and goddess cards ! We also like to have some tea brewed on hand with a dollop of our hemp and sage honey which helps us get into a chill mood and creates a mellow blissful and anxiety free zone perfect for creating.
- Create a sacred manifesting space
Whether it’s an altar or a pretty space on your nightstand, create a space of beauty where you can keep your activation tools...think candles, journals, crystals, and other symbolic items that conjure up a deep feeling of inspiration. We love lining our sacred space with collections of plants and flowers from hikes and outdoor adventures which helps ground us and deepen our connection to the earth and our rituals. Always make sure to wear comfy clothes like these jumpsuits we live in too.
- Clear your space before the ritual + get comfy
Our day to day lives can sometimes become energetically cluttered by swirling thoughts and other worldly dramas. The best thing to do is clear your space by either burning sage enter Smudge Sticks or sprinkle the edge of your room with rock salt. Say a small invocation before you clear the space…grounding prayers are really important when you do new moon or full moon rituals. Using cannabis can also help us clear our heads and elevate our minds to help facilitate a clearer manifestation process. When we don’t have our pipe necklace on, these crystal pipes come in handy, paired with some outdoor grown flower from our favorite farms in Southern Humboldt and VT.
The practice of meditation is really important throughout the manifesting process. This is because you still your busy mind and allow for your desires to flow from your higher self. It helps if you enter this space in a relaxed state (we use our hemp and sage balm on our neck and shoulders to help our muscles relax and in turn promotes our mind to slowly give way to inner bliss) and don’t forget your meditation pillows! Set the intention before your meditation to be guided to soulfully and succinctly express all of the things you would love to manifest into your life. Call them to rise to the surface of your heart.
- Flow from your heart with the ritual without judgment
Allow yourself to lead with your heart with this process. It’s so easy to get taken off track with the urge to self-sabotage. If you notice the little voice of doubt or certain judgments begin to rise up as you are doing the ritual, remember that they are a very natural part of the manifesting process. You need to understand that you can’t control how you feel when the doubt rises up, but you can choose to re-frame it in order to see it as a vital balancing force for the process to be successful. It’s ALL about perspective. Really dive into the core feelings of WHY you want to transform your life and what it would mean to the people and loved ones around you. Enjoy this magical journey to manifest your desires under the light of mother Moon!
