7 Simple Rituals To Maximize The Full Moon Energies


Doing a full moon ritual or a ceremony are sacred practices that date back to ancient times. These moon rituals are found in almost every ancient culture where worshiping the moon was part of their culture as we have seen in Celtic traditions, Babylonian, Egyptian, to Shinto in Japan and more.

There is tremendous power in learning to harness – what I like to call – moon magic, which is the energies, flows, rhythms. However, like anything else, this is NOT a one shot deal and poof, it’s magic. It takes dedication in learning these sacred rituals, implementing them, getting into vibrational alignment with them, and more.

The moon is our teacher and we are her students. Over time, we learn how work WITH these natural flows and rhythms in all her phases. Tuning into these phases of the moon can help provide us with a framework or guide to work from. This can be immensely empowering.

Working with the moon in a ritualistic or ceremonial way is needed more than ever in our technological driven culture that is ever increasingly losing connection to the greatest influencers, creators, and destroyers in life – the moon, father sun and mother earth.

What Does The Full Moon Represent?

This is when the moon is at its peak energy – a time where there is a build up of energy accumulated – both illuminating and shadowy – light and dark.

She represents the receptive energies or what others might call the feminine.

She reflects back to us a strong full illumination from the sun where she is the brightest.  She highlights all that needs to be illuminated in your life in this lunar cycle.  This is where the energies are most potent and a time for strong creative and intuitive influxes.

The full moon is all about endings and completions of a cycle and in this case the lunar cycle. This is a good time to:

  • reflect
  • evaluate
  • access
  • cleanse
  • recharge

Here are three things to consider when doing a full moon ritual

1) Focus on what you have done in the past 28-30 days. What transpired in this time? Where are you stuck? Reflect.  How have you utilized the energies in this lunar cycle?

2) What have you reaped – gained? Reflect.

3) What needs to be leg go of? Purified? Cleansed? Reflect.

Preparations For Full Moon Rituals

This is a great time to take a hard look at what has come into fruition and what has not.

It is a time to get quiet, connect, and honor the sacredness of the moon, all she offers us and the other elementals harnessed.  Implementing these rituals should show clear respect with proper cultural appropriation.

This includes asking for permission of the ancestors of the land you occupy to guide you. For me, that would be asking permission from the Massachusett People, the original stewards of this land I reside on, to be here.  Asking the ancestors forgiveness for those who may have come before me and asking for them guide me today in this sacred ritual so I may become a better steward for all future generations to come.

Here are additional tips to prepare:

1) Get centered & calm – so yes, meditate in preparation

2) Write it out – (see three things to consider when doing a full moon ritual above for prompts)

3) Take a sacred bath – you can use epsom salt or Himalayan salts with some herbals like roses, lavender or essential oils. The intention here is asking the moon and waters to cleanse and purify the mind, body, and spirit.

Here are 7 simple rituals to maximize the full moon energies.

1)  Cleanse – Clear, cleanse, purify your mental and physical space. Clean out those closets. If you choose to smudge, please consider avoid using white sage or palo santo due to the increasing poaching of these items leading to imbalances.

2) Put out a bowl of moon water.  Let the bowl of water bask in the radiance of the full moon energies.  Create intentions and rituals.  Sip it daily as a reminder of the intentions created and the full power of the moon.

3) Releasing Ritual – Write whatever you wish to release, let go of on a small piece of paper.  Whatever you wrote down, you can say a prayer, intention, or the like. Then with things you want to release either place in a bowl of water and sprinkle pink Himalayan salt to purify/cleanse or burn in a ceremonial sacred fire.

4) Meditate – This is one of the most important things you can learn, do, and incorporate as part of your daily rituals. This is the space we can access the wisdom and answers we seek.  However, this is NOT something you want to initiate on a full moon as a new practice if you have not already been practicing meditation.

5)  Dance – Physical release is a good way to purge stuck energies that need to move and filter out.

6) Gratitude Ritual – Write whatever you wish to be grateful for – successes, opportunities, etc on a small piece of paper.  Whatever you wrote down, you can say a prayer, intention, or the like. Then bury it in the garden and wait til the next new moon to plant any seeds and watch what grows.

7) Charge your stones/crystals – Put them in the moonlight to bask in the energies of the full moon to cleanse, charge, and purify these stones and crystals.

Approach these rituals from a soulful place and less from the egoic earthly place with honor, respect, and sacredness.

2020 In Review and The 2021 Energy Forecast


Are you ready for it?

This 2020 review and 2021 energy forecast was recorded LIVE on 1/1/21 during our normally scheduled Mornings with Laura; Spiritual Medicine & Meditation event.

Here is a glimpse of what we talk about.

  • We reviewed the 2020 energies and themes that played out throughout the year.
  • Numerology for the day 1/1/21: 7
  • 2021 Numerology for the year: 5
  • Today’s Medicine 1/1/21: PAINTED TURTLE
  • PLUS, a guided meditation with the Tibetan Singing Bowls

The numerology for 2020 was a 4 year – a “work” year as talked about throughout the year in our LIVE events as well as throughout the blog posts posted throughout the year as well.

What does this mean – a “work” year? We have a leveling out that happened in 2020 between the ego/material world and the soul/spiritual realm. This means that:

  • shadows revealed
  • trauma healing – generational, past life, personal
  • karmic debt
  • no longer able to spiritually bypass without consequences

The deep hard stuff was in our face and we were forced to face it. Clearly 2020 was no joke. However, if you think 2021 will be a walk in the park, you might be in for a rude awakening.

The Beetle – The Past Lessons

The focus was on the “earth” elements, cocooning, and restoring balance of life.

This was reflected in the “Beetle” card pulled which is associated with the water element, the 7 of cups in tarot which highlighted the need to face necessary decisions.

In 2020 we discovered the need for stronger partnership with plant and herbal medicine and stewardship of our great Mother Earth.

We discovered the importance of grounding, centering, tapping into ancestral work/wisdom, decolonization work, and social justice.

(A complete list of 2020 reports at the bottom).

We have been learning how to balance the yin/yang, light/dark as we evolve into a new era of human evolution.

This years surrender influence: SURRENDER DEFENSIVENESS

Now before you all get defensive – hahahahaha – take a pause and process without judgment.  See what shows up for you as you go through the meditation portion in the video.

“Defensiveness is a sign of weakness. To communicate in a more empowered way, stay centered and hear someone out – then offer a clear, non defensive response.”

The Painted Turtle – The Present Moments

In 2021, we move into integration as brought to us by the painted turtle which is associated with the fire element and the 6 of wands in tarot.

The painted turtle is showing us to continue with what we set out in motion in2020 with the lessons of the beetle. Through all this good stuff will commence this year.

Themes of working together in groups or collaboration is important. It is key to be less “me” or “I” and more “we”, which is a very Aquarian age theme moving forward anyway.

The rewards are NOT without continued strong effort. These efforts will begin to see the payoff especially over the next 2-3 months – so basically through spring equinox.

What do you want to birth????

The Swan – Moving Forward

The swan in the future position has been showing up repeatedly during our Facebook LIVE events at the end of the year and in the beginning. There is no coincidence here.

Swan is connected to the Temperance (XIV) card in tarot. Over the next 2-3 months, it is important to move forward with the lessons from the prior two cards and implement their teachings.

Be aware of the increase sensitivities into new realms and energies associated with these teachings to be awakening for you. HOWEVER, we can NOT bypass the first 2 lessons of the beetle and turtle to get there.

It is important to pay attention to what shows up for you in the subtle energy realm over the next 2-3 months.

Try new things.

Experiment.

See what shows up without the need to control outcomes or create expectations.

Create and maintain more balance in the elementals – water, air, earth, fire. Yet, do not abandon everything right now either.

Watch the replay for more key information and discussions around what we learned from 2020 and how to move forward in 2021.

Plus, a meditation to help you begin the year centered, clear and balanced
