Full Moon Water- Full Moon Rituals

full-moon-aquarius

One of the most powerful and easy to make and use tools of magic is the Lunar Water, a water which is charged by the powers of the Moon.

Moon was also associated with the Water and was perceived as a way to channel the powers of the Moon. The ancient civilizations realized that the cycles of the moon affect the tides and the seas, thus the Moon strongly influenced the Waters of our World.
One of the most powerful and easy to make  tools of magic  is the Lunar Water, a water which is charged by the powers of the Moon.

Moon water has many purposes and uses.  It can be used like blessing oil. It can be used to enhance your  rituals; it can be added to your bath for relaxation, for clarity, to promote love or prepare for lunar rituals, to anoint money to increase wealth, and to anoint yourself to increase psychic awareness, among many other purposes. You can even make tea with it, or water your plants with it.  It is largely dependent on your intent and often what zodiac sign the moon is in. To find out the day’s moon phase sign, I usually check over at Lunaf.

Here is a no frills guide for making your own full moon water:

  1. Locate a clear container: a bowl, jar or glass. Avoid plastic. No one likes the taste of plastic. (A mason jar might be best as you can seal and preserve it in the fridge.) Fill it with water of your choice: spring, filtered, or alkaline water.
  2. You can bless the water with sage or close your eyes and imagine the moon shining down and filling the water with its light, the water transforming; here you are using visualization to charge the water with your intent. Or, you simply set the container outside and let nature do its thing.
  3. Take the container filled with water outside to the clearest area you can find, unobstructed by overhanging trees and other things. Make sure this area will be undisturbed. It’s even better if this area is somehow special or important to you. Set the container down with the knowledge that the full moon will fill the water and transform it with lunar light. (You can also do this indoors, where you have seen the moon by a window. Sit the container in the window.)
  4. If  you like, here you can add frills: Surround the bowl with moonstones, crystals, flowers, or other items.
  5. This guide has no spell to say. If you like, simply smile at the lunar water and smile at the moon with a Goddess smirk. Spell complete. You can leave the water out overnight or for a few hours, it’s up to you. (just retrieve it before the sunrise)
  6. Use the water to anoint your chakras, your third-eye in the center of your forehead (associated with psychic sight and clarity). Use it like perfume. Make tea with it. Water your plants. Cook with it. Flick it over certain items to bless them. It’s up to you.
  7. On storage: Like any other water, make sure you seal it up. Its best sealed and placed in the fridge if not used right away. Make sure you can tell that this is your Goddess water by marking it with a label or designate it by placing it in a special container.
  8.   If you have extra full moon water, water your plants with it or take it back outside and return it to nature by pouring it into the soil.

Therapeutic Thursday – Full Moon Rituals

th-2

 

Hi luvs,

Tonight we celebrate the FULL MOON once again!

November’s full moon, the beaver moon also know as the frost moon.

Each full moon for me represents a time to reset, renew and recharge. A time to check in with my mind, body and spirit. A time to set my intentions. A spiritual cleansing if you will.

I also have a set of “full moon rituals” that I like to do that I will share with you.

At the full Moon, the energy builds and builds….there’s an explosive outgoing aspect to it. All of nature grows and is more vital at the full Moon. This surge allows you to take action on behalf of those new Moon intentions you set two week prior. A full Moon ritual might involve taking one solid step, with a symbolic action. And it can be a powerful time to release, cast out, unburden yourself, purge, etc. You celebrate your emergence by stepping out of an old skin, identity, behavior, attitude, relationship. The ritual helps you by marking this inner transformation in a formal way.
A full Moon ritual might involve purification by one of the elements. Most often, it’s fire, and done by casting something you don’t want into the flames. One idea: 1) Write what you’re releasing down on a stick or piece of paper.  2) resolve to let go as you throw it into the fire. 3) Throw the stick or paper  into the fire. This can be done as a group, with everyone sitting around the fire…or in your own private ceremony. Each person can seal their action of letting go by speaking it aloud, If you are alone, write down all that does not serve you anymore on a piece of paper (attitudes, emotions, relationships, people, illness, pain, habits, addictions) whatever you want to release. Go outside and burn the paper under the full moon and give thanks.

Water can be used to cleanse in rituals. Fill a bowl with water , write  down what you  want  to draw into your life on a piece of paper. After you  read it  aloud,  put your hands in the bowl to signify the cleansing of the old, to open to the new.

MEDITATION

If at all possible for this healing meditation, allow yourself to stand or sit barefoot upon the earth in a quiet place bathing yourself directly in the light of the full moon. This is a powerful opportunity to trigger an ongoing purification process of body, mind, emotions and spirit and of Mother Earth and for letting go of all that no longer serves you.
If you cannot do this meditation physically under the light of the full moon, then just imagine with all your senses what it would feel like if you were standing bathed in the light of the full moon.
Breathe deeply, filling your lungs with the cool, crisp evening air, and then exhaling slowly and patiently, feeling worries, stresses and tensions just melting out of the body and mind, as you relax deeper and deeper, take  long, slow deep breaths in and out taking you comfortably into deeper  states of relaxation – Everything else is becoming unimportant and is fading into the background as you connect more and more with the energy of the full moon.

I have so much more to share but I think I will save it for the next full moon!

Chocolate Meditation

Chocolate Meditation

29March 2012Chocolate Meditation

Loving Earth’s founder and managing director Scott just got back from a trip to India, during which he was initiated into a curious new form of meditation. You guessed it…chocolate meditation! But how does it work?

 

Although there are certainly those for whom chocolate is not a true passion, we’ve yet to come across someone who can’t appreciate a good piece of chocolate. In our line of work we come a cross a wide range of chocoholics, and few of you will be surprised that the majority of realchocolate lovers are women. Yet even for those who aren’t dedicated fans of the wonderful cacao bean’s most popular offspring, chocolate is still a uniquely delicious food. Whether it’s just an occasional piece with a cup of tea or coffee, a seasonal indulgence around Easter or Christmas, or a daily concern without which life would be hard to imagine, almost everyone consumes chocolate now and again. What we’re inviting you to do is to experience chocolate in a new way…

Here’s what to do:

  1. Get yourself some chocolate – all you need is one piece – and sit down in a quiet, comfortable place.
  2. Put a square of chocolate into your mouth. Don’t chew!
  3. Sit back and close your eyes.
  4. Focus on the chocolate alone and allow it to dissolve slowly in your mouth.
  5. Pay special attention to what you feel, what you imagine. What is your mind’s eye showing you?

We tried this just the other day, right before we had a meeting here at Loving Earth in Campbellfield, with interesting results. Eight of the team spent five minutes engaged in chocolate meditation before we each shared what we experienced.

*TO AVOID BEING INFLUENCED BY OUR EXPERIENCES, YOU MAY WANT TO TRY YOUR OWN CHOCOLATE MEDITATION BEFORE READING ABOUT OUR RESPONSES!*

 

Cece was the first to speak up, experiencing strong reminiscences of being a child in Kenya, going back perhaps to when she first tasted chocolate. Rohan found his senses speaking to him, bringing him through a cycle of tastes: initially a sense of bitterness, followed by sweetness and eventually a smooth earthiness. This contrasted with Richard, who imagined the jungle, the mist, the earth and the Amazon, from where we source our cacao. Doron found himself thinking of Indonesia, which is interesting for two reasons: firstly, he’s never been there, and secondly, he wasn’t aware that the chocolate we were tasting was sweetened with coconut sugar from the island of Jave…in Indonesia!

 As with everything, people experience chocolate mediation in many varied ways. Give it a go yourself – it’s even better with some friends or family. We’ll be getting back to this subject in the near future and we’d love to hear how you get on! Until next week, take care,
