This full moon on Sunday, January 4th is a powerful one for exactly this kind of intention setting. Letting go of old ideals that become the limiting and self fulfilling prophecy don't really do anything to serve your life's purpose. Instead, draw in the bounty of what the universe has in store for you is a beautiful way to ring in the year, and the ritual can really be a powerful way to shift the direction, allowing the energy to flow, and move towards what you want to attract.
FULL MOON AFFIRMATION RITUAL
You will need Himalayan salt, lavender oil, rose petals, white candles, a fire safe vessel, a special paper & pen. Be sure that you can be uninterrupted for some time. If at all possible, do the second part outdoors under the Full Moon.
Prepare a ritual cleansing bath by filling the tub with warm water, a handful of Himalyan pink salt & about 20 drops of lavender oil. Add some rose petals. Light some white candles, and soak in the bath as you meditate on your affirmation. This will remove and release negative energies. Dry off and dress in white. Purity in intention.
Light a white, green, or pink candle, and have the vessel, special piece of paper & pen at the ready. Write down the statement that will become your mantra for the new year. Be mindful of your thoughts- thoughts become words, words become reality. Affirmations of the positive such as
" I thank the Mother for providing all I need. I am abundant."
" Life flows exactly as it needs to for me and I am graced with prosperity and joy"
" I am open to receive and give love"
Write the affirmation on the paper. Hold it close to your heart and repeat the words 3 times. Then light the paper on the candle, place in vessel and offer it up. Allow the candle to burn undisturbed( but not without supervision). Sit quietly with your intention for a bit. Thank the Earth, the Moon, & Mother for their blessing.
Every morning, spend time in quite contemplation & meditation. Reaffirm your mantra for the year.
Gratitude Graces us with Gifts
Embrace them with Joy!
My mantra for 2015.......
" I am abundant, I am prosperous, I am beauty, I am love. I open my arms to the universe and receive"
Brightest blessings for a Happy New Year Dear Ones!
