Just gazing at the full moon increases the energy of the intention you hold in your mind. But many people also find it comforting and soothing to connect with its energy.
While you might be familiar with the concept of making wishes or dedicating intentions during the full moon, you may not be aware that every moon phase is magical and powerful and can be used as part of the process of changing your life or making your dreams come true.
Here, in brief, are the moon phases and their uses. I've simplified the explanation here so you can see clearly the path from making a wish to using all of the moon's power to manifest the change or make it come true. In future posts, as we land on each phase, I will describe them in much more detail.
Waning Crescent Moon: Identify your intention.
New Moon: Consecrate your intention, dedicating this moon cycle to it.
Waxing Crescent Moon: Begin to gather ideas about how to manifest your intention.
First Quarter Moon: Identify and work through fears and limiting beliefs that might get in the way of manifesting your intention.
Waxing Gibbous Moon: Seek intuitive guidance for more information about this issue or intention.
Full Moon: Give it all you've got as you use this time to empower your intention.
Waning Gibbous Moon: Reflect on all you've done, identifying any remaining work around letting go you might need to do to clear space for your intention.
Third Quarter Moon: Create a letting go ritual for anything you identified in the previous phase.
And then, rest, before the cycle begins again!
Have a great day!
