The full moon is often associated with "crazy". A lot of that is because we are being forced to deal with our shit. In the new moon phase, we manifest and wish, as if we were little kids wishing on our first star or a birthday candle. Well, to get those new moon manifestations, we’ve got some full moon work to do.
“Meditate. Live purely. Be quiet. Do your work with mastery. Like the moon, come out from behind the clouds! Shine.” – Gautama Buddha.
The full Moon shines a bright light on our shadow, and we’ve all got that ego crap to work on. That low vibrating stuff we do, that we see in others, is why we lash out. I know, I know…that’s super hard to admit, but if we don't, it would keep us from our goals and manifestations.
Use the full moon to practice both forgiveness and release of the following and ANYTHING else that doesn’t serve you.
Grief (the life you thought you would have &you just don’t)
Jealousy (keep up with the Jones’, their life is better than mine, I’m sicker than them)
Fear (news all day, anxiety, marital issues, money, health)
Here are the BIGGEST secrets to releasing, forgiving and gratitude
I apologize if this is a repeat, but my first full moon letter was pages and pages of begging for release from fear and grief. I had no direction, no idea what I was doing, I just knew I believed, with every ounce of my soul. The next morning, I set it on fire on the beach, watched it burn and I knew at that moment my life would never be the same.
Since then, largely because of Yasmin Boland, and all her books, including her course and of course Zen Buddhism, I have added a forgiveness list. We want to clear the karma, not only for yourself but for your family. You must forgive whatever has happened above. Trust me, it is easier than it seems. Remember the law of attraction, like attracts like. You can do this in meditation, with visualization, say it out loud under the moonlight, or write everything you’ve ever wanted to say and can’t. I like to write it down, then set it on fire.
I mean, honestly, I finish up with a gratitude list because there is so much to be grateful for. I’m happy that I have white sage and gorgeous crystals to clear any negativity in the full moon light.
I'm thankful for y’all reading this.
