Full Moon Meditation Script
Before we start – I am no ‘guru’ nor a spiritual expert. I just enjoy Meditation and Yoga and wanted to start a blog from my perspective of trying to create a daily routine that allows me a glimpse of the stillness they can bring. I try to link out to as many reputable sources within these posts as I can, some of these external links enable me to earn a commission which helps towards the running of the blog.
Meditation is a powerful practice with a myriad of positive effects on your mind, emotions and even your physical health.
Meditation can reduce anxiety, help you sleep better, relax you, improve bodily conditions, relationships, boost creativity and help with focusing your mind in productive ways. The list goes on and on.
There are so many different meditation techniques in the world, each stemming from its own tradition with its own specific emphasis, style and rituals. Regardless of this, most meditation methods share in common the idea of resting your mind in the moment and allowing it to remain aware, focused and clear, releasing negative thoughts.
Whether you wish to simply learn to quiet your busy mind, meditation is a wonderful way to practice gratitude, present-moment mindfulness, visualization and can also assist with manifesting your dream life.
Most of the time meditating can be something you choose to do early in the morning to get a good start on the day, or whenever suits your personal routine.
However, if you are focusing on using meditation for manifesting and creating the life of your dreams, meditating in sync with the cycles of the moon can greatly enhance your chances of success.
This is because the lunar cycles act like a spiritual tool to boost your abilities to manifest; they transmute and release the old in order to make space for the new. Tapping into the power of the full moon every month is a wonderful way to start afresh, release your negative thoughts and create new space for your manifestations to take place. It’s also a good time to get clear on what you want to let go of, and in that way increases your self-knowledge and intuition, which in turn will help you to clarify what you really desire.
Full moons occur at the climax of each monthly cycle, as the moon grows all month to become full, it makes sense that our own patterns, habits and thoughts and the energies around them also culminate with the full moon. That’s why it’s such a powerful time to release the old and make way for the new, alongside the next waning cycle that follows. The full moon shines its light on everything that needs to be let go of and healed.
Before doing the full moon meditation, it’s a great idea to get really clear and honest with yourself about what you would like to change in your life. Make a list of things, which you know you need to let go of.
These could be habits, repetitive thoughts or patterns of behaviour you would like to leave in the past now. You can also make a list of people you would like to forgive. Take your time with this, to really release resentments you need to look deep into your heart and sincerely analyse where forgiveness needs to occur. You can go far into the past if you like and focus on as many or as few situations, people and relationships as you need.
When you feel satisfied with the lists that you have made, prepare yourself to get comfortable for meditation. If possible, practice this meditation on the very night of the full moon and if you can outside, under its glowing beams. If that is not possible, it does not matter at all. Your intention is the most powerful force here, and together with the full moon energy; meditation can be just as effective.
If you want you could light a candle, or some incense to create the mood. You can have your lists in front of you. At the end of the meditation, if you like and if it’s safe to do so, you can burn them or tear them up in a symbolic act of release.
You may sit comfortably in a chair or on a meditation cushion if you have one. The most important thing is that you feel able to relax in a place where you will be undisturbed.
Now, close your eyes and begin by taking some deep, slow and loving breaths in and out.
Settle into the space around you. Feel the weight of your body on the floor. Feel the position of your hands in your lap or by your sides. Allow the natural pull of gravity to help you to relax and let go. Be here now.
As you inhale and exhale, relax your face and jaw. Allow your muscles to relax and let go of whatever you are holding on to. Put your worries and to-do lists aside for now. Be in the moment and trust in the light and powerful energy of the full moon.
You can lightly scan through your body and just notice any places of tension that you may have. Allow them to be there, simply observe as you continue to breathe calmly.
Now imagine a powerful, white and silver light beaming down from above the crown of your head. This light has a pure, calm and loving energy that soaks through your entire being, filling you with light.
Now bring to mind that which you no longer want in your life. The things you wish to release that do not serve you. Allow them to linger for a moment in your minds eye. If you like you can visualize them as a colour, or an object. See them floating in front of you.
Say out loud or in your mind, “I release you under the light of this sacred and magical full moon. I no longer need what does not serve or empower me.”
As you say this, imagine each of the things, habits, people, behaviours or thought patterns that you wish to release, disappearing in the full and powerful light of this moon. See them dissolve, consumed, floating away into the infinite light of pure goodness.
You may do this one by one, for each of the burdens and obstacles you wish to surrender.
Say in your mind
I release this unworthiness
I release this doubt
I release this fear and anger
I release resentment
I release judgment
I release envy and comparisons
I release relationships that do not serve me
I release toxic people and situations
You may take as long as you need to do this.
Just visualize each thing as it is released from your life and consumed by the burning, powerful light of the silvery moon and its deep cleansing abilities. Feel the weight of each burden released. Feel light as a feather as you relax and let go.
You may repeat to yourself, this mantra:
“Under the light of this beautiful, powerful and healing full moon I release you from my life with love. I forgive you and I forgive myself for past mistakes. Thank you for the lessons and now I release you.”
Feel yourself lifted and renewed as the toxic weight of all you have released disappears.
Now, focus your mind towards a feeling of gratitude. Feel deep appreciation for all that you have and all that is yet to come into your life. You may set your intentions now for the month to come.
Say to yourself:
“I welcome all that is now coming to me for my highest good. I look forward to the clarity, peace, love, abundance and positivity that are heading my way. I give thanks for the blessings I receive and rejoice in their wonder.”
Now remain here, breathing comfortably and basking in the glow of knowing your intentions will be made manifest. Feel them now as if they already are present in your life. Stay here as long as you need in the sensation of gratitude and appreciation. Whenever you are ready, bring yourself back to the room and open your eyes.
