FULL MOON RITUAL : The Awakening Potential
This Full Moon is calling each of us forward to check in with our priorities and reflect on whether or not they are in alignment with our highest good.
This is the time to reflect: Where do I spend our resources, my time, my precious energy? Is it in ways that are connected to the purpose that lives at the center of my heart?
We all came to this earth with a unique purpose. There has never before been anyone exactly like you, and there never will be again. Your individual gift to the world while you are here matters deeply, and with this moon cycle raging with energy, we can harness it to propel us forward.
For some of us, our purpose shows up in our profession. For others, our purpose is the way we are in the world, and how we choose to show up. What matters is not whether you are making money from your purpose but that you give yourself the opportunity to feel fully expressed in this life.
This full moon ritual will help calm the mind, tap into your power, and remind you that in any moment you to turn towards the infinite potential within.
1. Set your space so that it reflects you taking care of YOU during this sensitive and intense energetic cycle. Light a candle, dim the lights, dab your essential oils on, and play your favorite music. This is about you, so let the whole process feel good.
2. Power Pose: Step your feet slightly wider than hips width. Reach the arms up overhead in a high "V" shape, face your palms forward, and spread your fingers wide. Feel your feet root into the ground as you reach your arms tall. Relax your shoulders and soften the face as you continue finding length in your body. Close your eyes and take 10 deep breaths in this pose of Confidence, Balance, and Inner Knowing.
3. Bee Breath: Staying in this Power Pose that you just set up, take 10 more breaths utilizing 'Bee Breath'. To do this breath, inhale deep and exhale a "hmmmmmm" sound, like a bee buzzing. Each time you exhale, increase the volume and length of the sound. It helps to gently press your tongue against the roof of your mouth where it meets the teeth.
4. Once you take ten Bee Breaths, pause. Then take one more deep breath in and this time hold for a count of 10. Reach your arms even longer with your breath held in. Exhale and release the arms by your side. Close the eyes, let yourself float for a moment, and simply feel what is happening for you on the inside. Gently breathe in and out into exactly what is present, trusting it is exactly as it needs to be and so are you.
5. Place one hand on your heart, one hand on your belly. Repeat this mantra 3 times out loud:
"I have unlimited potential and claim my purpose. All that I need is within me."
