Unlocking the Power of the Full Moon: A Step-by-Step Guide to Performing a Full Moon Ritual

Updated: Feb 24

The full moon is a powerful time to release what no longer serves you. This is because the full moon is associated with the culmination of energy and the completion of cycles. It's a time to reflect on what has been completed and to let go of what no longer serves your highest good.

This can include letting go of thought patterns, limiting beliefs, habits, relationships, clutter, and anything else that may be holding you back. By releasing what no longer serves you during the full moon, you are creating space for new energy and opportunities to come into your life.

This can be a powerful time for transformation and growth. You can do this by performing a full moon release ritual. Bear in mind that the full moon is a not time to set intentions or begin something new. It's a time of letting go and releasing what no longer serves your highest good.

How to Perform a Full Moon Ritual.

Performing a full moon ritual can be a powerful way to connect with the energy of the moon to release what no longer serves you for the coming lunar cycle. Here are some steps you can follow to perform a full moon ritual.

1. Find a Space.

Choose a quiet and comfortable place where you won't be disturbed. Outdoors, under the light of the moon is ideal, but if that's not possible, find a space indoors where you can see the moon.

To find an outdoor space to perform your full moon ritual, you can start by looking for a location that is secluded and quiet. This could be a private backyard, a local park, or even a nearby beach.

You also want to consider the energy of the space and whether it feels conducive to your intentions for the ritual.

2. Prepare Your Space.

Once you have found a suitable location, you can prepare it by cleansing the space with sage or other herbs, setting up any decorations or altar items, and creating a comfortable seating area for yourself and any participants.

Create a sacred container for your ritual by lighting candles or incense, playing calming music, or anything else that helps you feel relaxed and focused.

3. Ground and Center Yourself.

Grounding and centering yourself is an important step when performing a full moon release ritual. Here are some steps you can follow to do this:

1. Find a quiet and comfortable space where you won't be disturbed.

2. Sit or stand with your feet firmly planted on the ground.

3. Take a few deep breaths, inhaling through your nose and exhaling through your mouth.

4. Visualize roots growing from the bottom of your feet and extending deep into the earth.

5. Imagine drawing up the earth's energy through these roots and into your body, filling you with a sense of stability and grounding.

6. Focus on your breath and your connection to the earth until you feel centered and calm.

You can also use other techniques to help you ground and center yourself, such as meditation, yoga, or simply spending time in nature. The key is to find what works best for you and make it a regular part of your practice.

4. Write it Down.

Writing down what you're releasing is an important part of a full moon ritual, as it helps to clarify your goals and focus your energy. Be specific and specify what you are truly ready to let go of.

Remember to be honest and authentic with yourself when writing what you're releasing, and trust your inner being to know what's best for you to let go of at this time.

5. Connect With the Moon.

Take a moment to connect with the energy of the full moon. You can do this by simply looking at the moon and feeling her light and energy wash over you. Appreciate and express gratitude for all she brings into your life with her beautiful energy.

Connecting with the moon can be a wonderful way to tune into nature and your inner self.

6. Hold and Visualize.

Hold your written intention of what you want to release in your hand. Visualize yourself releasing it to the universe. Close your eyes and take a few more deep breaths, feeling the energy of the moon supporting you and flowing through you.

7. Speak it Out Loud.

When you're ready, state what you intend to release out loud. You can say something like, "I release these things that no longer serve me, for my highest good and the highest good of all. So mote it be."

8. Burn the Paper.

Light a candle or a match and burn the paper. As you watch the paper burn, visualize yourself letting go of the negative energy, people, limiting beliefs, behavior patterns, or emotions you wrote down.

9. Express Your Gratitude.

Once the paper has burned down, take a moment to express gratitude for the release. You can say a few words, bow your head, or simply take a deep breath. Thank the universe for the release.

10. Close it Out.

To close out your ritual and complete the release, blow out any candles or incense, take a few deep breaths, and focus on your body. Feel yourself grounded and centered, and visualize yourself surrounded by positive energy and white light.

That's it! You can do a full moon release anytime during a full moon when you feel the need to let go of something. Remember to always set your intention and express gratitude for the release.

Don't forget that the most important thing is to connect with the energy of the moon and set your intentions from a place of authenticity and clarity.

Releasing what no longer serves you is a process and it may take time to fully let go. Be patient, compassionate, and gentle with yourself during this time. Trust that the universe has your back and is supporting you in your journey towards growth and healing.

If you need help letting go of a situation or limiting beliefs, please don't hesitate to book a reading, light language session, or coaching with me to get help and clarity.
