Some see the moon as just an object in the sky. But metaphysically, the moon is so much more than that. It offers healing energy.
The full moon is a time for cleansing, releasing negativity and letting go of the physical, emotional, and spiritual baggage which no longer serve your highest self and also setting up best intentions. This opens you up for the new moon’s energy, which fills your soul with new ideas, new beginnings, and a new way of viewing things.
This full moon meditation and visualization exercise can help activate our chakras and help bring forth our best self:
Find an area to stand or sit barefoot upon the earth.
Close your eyes or keep them softly focused and feel the moon beams bathing you in cleansing and purifying energy. If you are in the sunlight then go into your bed room make a clean and comfortable spot imagining the moon beams and soothing properties of the moon light. You can also charge a bath with Epsom salts and calming herbs like sage and lavender.
Breathe deeply. Feeling your lungs and diaphragm expand to it’s maximum capacity. Pause for a few seconds and slowly exhale imagining the diaphragm as “up flying” or pulling the diaphragm (your belly button) towards the spine. Imagine your inhale and exhale creating a figure eight or infinity symbol.
Imagine all areas of the body releasing tension starting from the feet going all the way up to the muscle of the face. Let go of all muscle tension. Surrender.
Inhale, imagine roots from the legs or the base of the spine diving down into the earth. Guide this energy up towards the very top of the head or the crown.
Imagine a white lotus flower on the very top of your head and through this blossoming lotus flower white glowing pure light is pouring into your body. Covering like a blanket of snow all of the body seeping into each pore. Cleansing your inner being.
Feel comfortable bliss. Now dive down in the earth as exhale. Letting go of anything that no longer serves you. Anxiousness-Anger-Sadness.
Imagining the white light again drawing it from the earths core through you, up each energy center through your body and penetrating into the universes and endless stars.
Imagine bliss, peace and love showering again back down on the earth. That energy returning to you as cool, soft, angel white light wings surrounding you.
Placing your hands in prayer, lifting your hands to third eye center and bowing.
We end by letting our hands come back down to heart center.
Now that we are open to receive, we can look at the sky on a clear night, begin to visualize the moon getting closer to you until you can hold it in your hands.
Knowing that the moon is beautiful and healing being… begin to visualize the moon transforming…from the sky, into your hands and through your body.
Further relax your body and clear your mind. Feel the energy coming from the moon and notice a tingling sensation within.
Visualize the energy from each of your seven chakras becoming brighter in color and intensify from the energy of the moon. They light up like a rainbow from your feet right out the top of your head.
Next, beginning with your Root Chakra, visualize a red energy leaving the moon and reconnecting to your spine. You are now experiencing a greater sense of feeling balanced and grounded.
Turn your focus to your Sacral Chakra and visualize a orange energy flowing from the moon and circling around your navel. You are feeling limitless creativity and confidence.
Now, at your Solar Plexus Chakra, begin to visualize the yellow energy flowing from the moon to your stomach, filling you up with empowerment and strength.
As the colors continue to move and transform in the moon, concentrate on your Heart Chakra. Visualize a loving green energy flowing from the moon to your heart. As it penetrates your heart, you begin to feel love, happiness, joy and peace.
Now moving up to your Throat Chakra, begin to visualize a blue energy leaving the moon and directly connecting to your throat. You begin to feel expressive, free, and all of your words flow with ease.
With your attention at your Third Eye chakra, visualize an indigo energy exiting the moon and entering the area of your third eye. You begin to unfold new ideas, new thoughts, and become awakened and in tune to your psychic abilities.
You have now reached your Crown Chakra. Begin to visualize a purple energy flowing from the moon to the crown of your head. As you connect to your higher self or higher power, you are feeling inspired and a newness of endless possibilities.
With the newfound feelings of abundance of excitement, you can now release the moon back to the universe. With your energies intact, the moon energies you absorb stay with you and the moon goes back to the universe, taking any and all negativity, discomfort and stress with it and cleansing it to return as pure healing light for the world.
Take a deep breath in and slowly exhale. Visualize each chakra and thank the moon for the cleansing and releasing and for filling your soul with new beginnings and fresh perspectives.
You take one final glance at the beauty of the moon, thanking it again for the healing you’ve received.
