How to set your intentions and make wishes when the moon is full?

The moon is a fascinating star that exerts a powerful influence on its environment. Perhaps you have already experienced this? The full moon is the time when the moon reaches its peak. It is considered that it is at this time that there is a peak of beneficial energy, one of the most powerful energetically. This is why it is the ideal time for your rituals. They allow you to connect to lunar energies and purify yourself.

The full moon is an opportune time to amplify your manifestation energy. How ? By setting your intentions and formulating wishes.

To start, nothing could be simpler. You must first find a quiet place where you can be alone and where the full moon is visible. Maybe in your garden if you have one, on a balcony, or even near an exposed window.

Then you will need some accessories like candles, crystals, flowers, or symbols evoking the full moon. Place them on an altar (a small piece of furniture or a chest of drawers will do) or directly on the ground.

Before you begin your ritual, take a few moments to center yourself. Breathe deeply, release tension and focus on the energy of the full moon. Don't think about anything else!

Then take a notebook or piece of paper and start writing down your intentions clearly. Be specific about what you want to manifest in your life.

Know that wishes are positive declarations of what you want to see come true. Formulate them affirmatively and specifically. For example, instead of saying "I don't want to be stressed anymore," say "I am calm and collected in all situations."

Also show gratitude by expressing your wishes as if they had already come true. Positivity and gratitude strengthen the energy of your intentions.

When you are ready, express your intentions and wishes out loud. The vibration of your voice amplifies the energy of what you manifest. Be assured and believe in the realization of your desires.

Close your eyes and meditate on your intentions. Visualize them materializing in your life. Imagine the details, sensations and emotions linked to making your wishes come true.

End your ritual by thanking the moon. Express your gratitude to him for the manifestation of your intentions. Feel the connection between your inner being and the cosmic energy around you.

Remember to keep the paper where you wrote your intentions and wishes. You can reread these writings during the next full moons to know where you are.

Practice this ritual every full moon to maintain a regular connection with your intentions. Be patient and open to opportunities as they present themselves, as the full moon amplifies the positive energies you attract into your life.

How to purify yourself under a full moon?

Always choose a quiet place, ideally outside where you can enjoy the rays of the full moon. Otherwise, make sure you're near an exposed window.

For purification you will need some accessories: medicinal sage, palo santo, dried herbs or purifying incense.

Dress casually, if possible in white or light, and then relax. You can start with a little meditation if you wish. The idea is to breathe and release tension to focus on the calming energy of the full moon.

For example, you can visualize a circle of white light around you. This visualization will create a protective barrier to ensure that only positive energies enter during purification.

Light your choice of purifying incense. Pass the smoke around your body, especially around the head, shoulders, arms and legs.

If you are using sage, light it and let it burn lightly. Pass the smoke around your body starting at your head and moving down to your feet. Be sure to pass sage around the corners of your space to purify the environment as well. As you pass the smoke around you, consciously ask for all negative energies to be cleared from your space (in you and around you).

If you are a fan of minerals, prefer purifying crystals such as transparent quartz, amethyst or citrine. Visualize them charging with lunar energy.

Once the purification ritual is complete, be grateful for the full moon and the elements used for purification. Breathe deeply and enjoy the feeling of lightness and clarity.

If you have a bathtub, I recommend a bath with purifying salts like Epsom salt. Visualize the water absorbing all the impurities from your body and mind.

Repeat this ritual every full moon to maintain fresh, positive energy. Listen to your intuition and adapt the ritual according to your inspirations. The full moon offers a powerful opportunity to cleanse and renew your energy for the month ahead.

When to perform a full moon ritual?

The full moon itself lasts only a moment. Therefore, to take full advantage of its energies, you can carry out your ritual a few days before and a few days after the big day.

Ideally do your ritual between two days before the full moon until two days after. This gives you time to organize yourself and take into account the weather and the state of the sky for the days to come.

You can also consult a lunar calendar to find the exact date and time of the full moon in your time zone. This will allow you to synchronize your ritual with the peak of lunar energy.

Sacred geometry symbols for full moon rituals

Sacred geometry symbols are incredible tools that you can use perfectly during your full moon rituals. They will allow you to concentrate better, amplify the energy of your work and create a connection with cosmic forces.

As usual, I recommend that you choose a symbol with which you have an affinity. You will always get better results. That said, why not explore and experiment with other symbols from time to time? Eh ?

The Flower of Life: Use it to attract harmony, balance and spiritual growth during the full moon.

Metatron's Cube: Use it to create sacred space and foster connection with the spiritual planes during the full moon.

The Pentagram: Use it, either to invoke balance and protection, or to strengthen your links with the elements.

The Seal of Solomon: Use it to strengthen mental clarity and wisdom during the full moon.

The Merkaba: Use it to strengthen your connection with yourself and the energies of the moon.

During your full moon ritual, place these sacred geometry symbols under direct moonlight, meditate on them or incorporate them into your practices to amplify and direct lunar energy towards your intentions. Remember to pay particular attention to your specific intention to maximize the benefits of each chosen symbol.

The altar cloth we offer, adorned with major sacred geometry symbols such as the Flower of Life, Metatron's Cube and the Pentagram, is of significant importance in your full moon rituals.

These symbols, charged with profound spiritual meanings, act as portals to transcendental energies, amplifying the power of your intentions. By using this altar cloth, you create a sacred space imbued with symbols that promote harmony, protection and connection with divine forces.

This accessory becomes a catalyst for channeling lunar energies, helping you to resonate with cosmic cycles and manifest your deepest desires. Its use underlines the importance of creating an environment conducive to spirituality and personal growth during lunar phases, strengthening your connection with sacred geometry and its spiritual benefits.

What ritual should I do on a full moon?

There are many ways to celebrate the full moon, to celebrate its powerful energy of transformation. Generally speaking, you will need certain accessories: necessarily pieces of paper to express your intentions, a candle to create an atmosphere conducive to meditation, sticks of medicinal sage, incense or palo santo to eliminate the negative energies in your space.

If you have them, get out your crystals! Crystals like rock crystal can help you amplify the energies of your work and ward off harmful energies.

Before leaving the glass under the moonlight, think about your intentions. This could be asking for mental clarity, emotional healing, or any other positive goals you want to manifest.

During the night, if you wake up, take a few moments to contemplate the moonlight reflecting in the glass of water. Visualize this energy infusing the water with its benefits.

At sunrise, collect the glass of water imbued with the energy of the full moon. Before eating or drinking anything else, consume this water slowly and mindfully, focusing on its regenerative and harmonizing potential.
