Creating a full moon ritual to manifest your desires is such a fantastic way to deepen your spiritual practices while saying sayonara to what no longer serves you. Essentially, you can utilize the moon as a planner for your life.
If you’re not familiar about how to work with the moon, this post will help you out. And if you’re well established in your spiritual journey, you’ll definitely pick up on some tips that can benefit you.
To get to the ritual, it’s important to understand the symbolism of working with the moon. When you can grasp it, you’ll be better equipped to harness the powers of the divine feminine energies.
The moon is said to govern our emotions, which dates back thousands of years. We know the moon influences the tides of the water, so it only makes sense the moon is responsible for our emotions considering that the human brain is 73% water according to the USGS.
Keeping a moon journal can be a helpful tool to document your emotions.
All you need to do is jot down how you’re feeling as the moon passes through each of the twelve zodiac signs. It’ll take a few cycles before you start to notice any patterns but it’s well worth the wait. You’ll learn when your power days are and what days would be best to take a reprieve from life.
Each lunar cycle lasts about 29 days with eight moon phases. It passes through each of the twelve zodiac signs, staying in each area for about two and a half days.
Just because each cycle lasts for about a month doesn’t necessarily mean your goals will take only one cycle to complete. Generally, six months is an adequate time to see the results for a small to medium sized goal.
Everyone’s version of measurement is vastly different when it comes to quantifying the size of goals. What I mean by small to medium size goals are paying debts off, finding a new job, getting a new car, taking up a new study, etc.
Track the progress of your goals through the cycles of the moon.
Either from New Moon to New Moon or Full Moon to Full Moon. You can also see how far you’ve come in the past six months or see how far you are six months down the road.
Say you’re releasing your debts right now and it happens to be a New Moon in Aries. Six months down the road, when the Full Moon (at the manifestation period) occurs in Aries, check how far you’ve come along.
Larger aspirations are going to require more time to come into completion than a smaller goal. If you want to buy a new home or need to save up money to travel the world, that could very well take more than six months. Again, different factors will have different circumstances.
Divine timing plays a large role when your dreams will manifest.
Remember, society’s version of time is much different than the Universe’s concept of time. Patience and remaining determined will benefit you greatly when you’re pursuing your dreams.
On a side note, I say Universe as an umbrella term. It can be the Archangels, spirit guides, ascended masters, fairies, higher self, source, energy, Jesus, God, etc. It’s whatever term or phrase that resonates with you.
Anyway, time is merely a construct- a measurement tool for practical purposes. On this plane, time is viewed as past, present, and future. It’s completely linear.
Divine timing is based on non-linear events all coinciding at the same time. The past affects the present and the present affects the future through the integration of each person’s actions.
Karma is your ally
In other words, your actions today will vastly impact your future based on decisions you make throughout the day.
Don’t confuse your actions as karma. Karma is said for a lack of a better word. The actual definition of it is that it’s redemption in the present moment from past mistakes for a better future.
That also doesn’t mean you have to suffer in the present as a form of redemption. Acting with integrity, dignity, grace, and humility aren’t insufferable traits. They’re admirable.
You’re one decision away from changing your life. So if you think your options are limited or there are no alternatives, there always is one. Essentially, staying stuck in some crappy situation is based on your choice.
But it’s not doom and gloom. You don’t have to settle for a life you don’t want and you shouldn’t. You have the power within yourself to change it at any given time. What you do right now, even if they’re small action steps, will create a monumental impact on your future. It’s a ripple effect.
Co-create your reality with a full moon ritual
With that said, the easiest way to get started on creating your ideal life is to work with the phases of the moon. Become a collaborator with the Universe by deepening your connection to them.
Start with the helping hand of Lady Luna. She is the gateway between you and your spiritual practices.
For thousands of years, the moon has been one of the most elusive celestial bodies. As the embodiment of divine femininity, Lady Luna has been represented through art, poetry, worshipped as a Goddess, and even feared by some ancient civilizations.
In a world that is inherently obsessed with defining everything, the moon remains to be an enigma on some capacity. Which makes its mystery such a magical way to deepen your connection with the divine.
How to create a full moon ritual
Ancient astrology used the new moon as a form of releasing what was no longer relevant for a person’s life.
It’s in the metaphorical darkness when you have the ability to witness what needs to be purged from your life. Paradoxically, in darkness, you find the light. You can’t see light without the darkness. Just as you can’t see the darkness without light.
In honoring the wisdom of ancient traditions, I choose to work with their ways of the lunar cycle. After trying the ways of both modern and traditional astrology, I find my spiritual progression and manifestations to be much more successful through the ancient ways.
If you’re acquainted with the new moon, then you know that it’s about planting your seeds of intentions. That’s not what we’re going to focus on. It’s all about detoxifying and purifying to release the old to welcome the new.
It’s time to get into the full moon ritual. Let’s get started, shall we?
1. Create a prosperity spell bag
Let the manifesting begin! The first component to a successful full moon ritual is to create a spell bag.
To make the spell bag, you’ll need:
- A muslin bag
- 1 tbsp. dried holy basil
- 3 Fresh basil leaves
- 2 Bay leaves
- 1 Star anise
- 1 tbsp. Cloves
- 1 tbsp. Jasmine green tea or 1 blooming flower
- 1 tbsp. Epsom salt
Combine all the ingredients in the bag and tie it securely.
2. Clean and charge the bag
You need to get rid of negative energies that may have lingered around the herbs before you can effectively use it.
All you need to do is wave a selenite wand over the bag. That takes less than a minute. When that’s done, you’re going to charge the bag under the full moon for two hours. You can either place the bad outside or by a window that’s facing the moon.
By allowing the moon’s energies to absorb into the bag and the herbs, you’re infusing it with Divine magic.
Once that’s completed, you can move onto the next step.
3. Take a bath
It’s time to relax and rejuvenate. Get in that tub with whatever fancies your taste. Add bubbles, a bath bomb, some essential oils…whatever your heart contents.
Be sure to add the spell bag that’s been charged by the full moon to the bath. You want to capitalize on this full moon ritual.
Soak in the bathtub for at least 30 minutes and think about what you want to attract into your life. Really visualize your desires as if you already have what you’re seeking.
When you’re satisfied and feel zenned out, you can move onto the next step.
4. Write your manifestations
Writing your intentions is so important for your full moon ritual. It basically acts as a sealant for what you wish to bring in.
Take pen to paper and jot down everything you thought about while you were in the tub. If anything else surfaces that you wish to bring in, write that down too.
Once your manifestations have been written, you can move onto the last and final phase of your ritual.
5. Bury spell bag and intentions
Now that you’ve completed the first four phases, it’s time to bury the contents of the spell bag and your written intentions.
You want to give back to Mother Earth as a token of your appreciation for what’s to come your way.
Dig a small hole in the ground and pour all of the herbs from your spell bag into the ditch. Then throw the written intentions in there.
Cover the hole back up and thank the Universe and Mother Earth for blessing you with your wishes as if you already have what you’re seeking.
There you have it…your full moon ritual to manifest your desires. Utilize each full moon as a symbolism of clarity to aid you in your manifestation journey.
