Full Moon Meditation – Purpose & How to Do

by KG Stiles

The Full Moon at 9:01pm PST on Friday, May 8th at 19° Scorpio brings extra emotional intensity! We’ll be going deep and new realizations about ourselves and our life situation will surface for integration. Look for where the Full Moon is occurring in your Astro Chart to find out where in your life you’ll be making your biggest harvest, and return on your investment of energy. This is also where you may realize that you have some things you need to let go of. Letting go of things that are no longer serving you will help clear the way for your planting new seeds of intention at the next new moon, two weeks from now.

The Full Moon is also a time to celebrate all that you have to be grateful for! Review your list of intentions that you planted at the New Moon and nourished with your love and tender care. Give thanks for all that you’ve accomplished during the past 2 weeks. The Full Moon is a wonderful time to review your many gifts and accomplishments, remembering to give thanks for the blessings of your life, and your life experiences. What you focus on creates your beliefs, and your beliefs and actions over time manifest as your reality.

At the Full Moon let go of anything that no longer works for you. The diminishing electro-magnetic pull of the waning moon naturally serves to help you to let go of anything. Let go of any struggles with yourself, or with your life situation, be willing to let it all go! Clutter clearing within and without renews your Soul, and clears the way for you to re-connect with your natural state of well-being.

For this meditation you will need:
Clean sheets of paper
A white candle

Calm your mind and sit quietly.
There is nothing you need do at this moment but be present with your self. Within all of us there is a sacred space. Now is the time to go within to your sacred space and be still. Light your white candle and focus on the flame. Remember that the light you see is a reflection of the light within you.

Write your list of all the things you wish to let go of on paper. Allow yourself to write down everything that does not work for you, as well as any feelings you have about anything that does not work for you, let it all flow onto the paper. Let it flow, let it go!

After you have taken time writing your list of what you desire to release completely, fold your paper, and say aloud:

God/Goddess and all that is,
Angels, guides, ancestors, teachers, and friends,
I call upon all who love me to witness
My deep appreciation for my soul’s journey,
Bless my unfolding as I give thanks
for my many blessings and accomplishments.
May my true heart’s desires always be manifest,
And so it is.

As you end your meditation, surrender the struggles, and burdens you’ve written down on a piece of paper into the flames of a living fire. Jungian analyst, and mentor, Marion Woodman PhD, uses a Chinese Wok for her ritual burnings. You are burning your old ways, habit patterns and beliefs, that no longer work for you to make room for the planting of new seeds at the next New Moon. Your life is a beautiful and wondrous journey; celebrate it as often as possible.

After completing your Full Meditation you may feel inspired to take some action. If so listen to your wise heart and take action immediately!
