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.

How to create a vision board

 

Where we place our attention is what we will create for ourselves.

When you realise the truth in this sentence, the power and possibilities that open up for you are limitless. This is why I am a massive fan of The Vision Board. I try to do a new one each year, revisiting where I am and comparing that with where I want to be. And each year I update my vision board with new pics, quotes, and words that represent the future I want to create for myself.

Vision boards are the ultimate in manifestation. They serve as a tool to keep you inspired, keep you on track, and keep you motivated. You know all of the Law Of Attraction stuff? Well, creating a vision board and sticking it in your line of sight, is an awesome way to communicate with the Universe about what you would like to collaborate on in your life. Plus, they are fun to make!

HOW TO CREATE A VISION BOARD

There are no real rules when it comes to creating a visual interpretation of your hopes and dreams. This is why everyone’s board is so different.  But if you’re the kind of person who appreciates a little guidance, here are some basic steps to follow.

1. Think.

Find a quiet place to sit or lie, where you will be able to seek enough solace to get your daydream on.  Spend some time with your thoughts. Allow your mind to wander into the most inspired future you can visualise for yourself. Ask yourself these questions:

“Who am I surrounded by?”
“Where do I live?”
“What do I do for work?”
“Who are my mentors?”
“What do I look like?”
“How much money do I earn?”
“How do I feel?”
“What do I want to be?”
“What do I want to do?”
“What do I want to have?” (Material possessions are totally fine here!)
“What will make me excited?”

2. Seek.

Now go ahead and find images, words, quotes and affirmations that remind you of all of the images you see in your future. All of the people you want to meet and be around, the places you want to live in and visit, the events you want to experience, the accomplishments you want to reach, the feelings you want to emulate, and the emotions you want to fill your cells with. Use Google ImagesCompfightFlickr, or Pinterest to find images online. Or, flick through magazines.

3. Create.

Buy a corkboard or just any old board and pin or stick your images to it. Previously I have just randomly tacked images to a pin board, but this year I went virtual and created my board in Google Picasa.

The following video is a conversation between artist Wangechi Mutu and musician Santigold about their video collaboration The End of Eating Everything. You can view a 3 minute teaser of the video HERE, courtesy of MOCAtv. The video was commissioned by the Nasher Museum at Duke University as part of Wangechi Mutu: A Fantastic Journey, the first survey in the United States for this internationally renowned, multidisciplinary artist. The End of Eating Everything can be viewed in full at the Nasher Museum through July 21, 2013.

The 8-minute video, marks the journey of a flying, planet-like creature navigating a bleak skyscape. This “sick planet” creature is lost in a polluted atmosphere, without grounding or roots, led by hunger towards its own destruction. The animation’s audio, also created by Mutu, fuses industrial and organic sounds.
