How to Work With the Full Moon Energy?
If we do not live in the rhythm of the lunar cycle, we most likely will feel mood swings and fatigue during the Full Moon time. Moreover, our emotional and even physical condition may deteriorate. Therefore, it is very important to learn to live in harmony with the Moon, especially when it’s at the peak of its activity.
For harmonizing the influence of the Moon on our lives, we can perform the Full Moon bath rituals and adjust our lifestyle to the Moon’s vibrations.
The Full Moon Bath Ritual
For performing this Full Moon ritual, prepare a big jar, a silver spoon, three lemons, petals of three yellow roses (or a handful of dry Linden flowers, or chamomile), rose essential oil (or lemon, or patchouli, etc.).
The preparation part of the ritual should be performed out during the day before the Full Moon.
Early in the morning, pour clean water into the jar and put a silver spoon in it. Water should stand for at least 6 hours. Cut the three lemons into slices, put them in a jar, add rose petals (dried flowers must be brewed with boiling water and infused for 20 minutes), and essential oil. Put the jar on the windowsill so that it permeates the moonlight, and leave for the night.
The next day, in the evening, during the actual Full Moon, fill up the bathtub with warm water and slowly pour the contents of the jar. Then lie down in the bath, close your eyes and imagine swimming in a lake of moonlight, and visualize that you are absorbing lunar energy.
Take a bath for at least 20 minutes.
