How To's: Crystal Rituals for the Full Moon

"The sun sees your body. The moon sees your soul."

What is a Full Moon?

The full moon occurs when the moon is directly opposite the sun in its orbit around the earth. It is within the opposite position that makes it the perfect time to surrender ourselves to the universe. The Full Moon represents closures and endings, whether it be in moon cycles, relationships, habits, or intentions. The full moon calls on us to release any stagnant or negative energy.

Whereas the new moon is about setting new intentions for the cycle ahead, the full moon is about looking inwards. It is the perfect time to reflect, look around, and release anything that is no longer serving your highest good. Rituals are important, especially during a Full Moon. This is a powerful time to honor and let go of the things that are no longer serving you and make space for anything new that would like to present itself.

Starting Your Rituals

In the beginning of any ritual, you want to set your space so that energy can move around freely and is clear for intention setting.

Step 1: Cleanse Your Space

Take this time to clear out any clutter in your space where you will be meditating. It's important to have a clean space so that energy can move around freely and not feel stuck. 

Once clean, smudging your space and your crystals are highly encouraged. Smudging is an ancient cleansing ceremony practiced by indigenous Native Americans where you burn herbs to clear and purify the air and energy around you and your space. Sage is the most popular herb, followed by Palo Santo, and incense. You can find these tools on our website.

Step 2: Meditate

During the Full Moon, it is the perfect time to look inwards and check in on yourself. While the New Moon is great for setting new intentions, the Full Moon allows you to look introspectively and reflect. Take a moment to check in with yourself, how are you feeling, really? Take this time to do some breath work and allow yourself the space to get ready for your intention setting and rituals. You can access the Sacred Light  Sound Bath audio recordings to assist you in your meditation here.

Step 3: Intention Setting

As you look into what you wish to release, consider these questions and write them down on a piece of paper:

  • How am I feeling right now? Do I feel balanced? If not, what feels out of balance?
  • Is there anything I wish to get rid of?
  • Is there anything holding me back and no longer serving me?
  • Do I need to release anything or anyone?

Crystal Rituals for the Full Moon

Ritual II: How To Create a Crystal Grid

Crystal grids are specifically arranged energetically aligned crystals  usually in a sacred geometry shape charged by a specific intention. Whether your intentions are for love, healing, protection, or abundance, you can use crystal grids as a way for manifestation.

Intention: Start by setting a clear intention of what you want the Crystal Grid to be. 

The Center Crystal: When you make a crystal grid, you start of with a center crystal. It's usually the largest piece in your grid, which acts as an anchor and central axis for the grid's energetic movement. The center crystal or stone has the highest vibration and acts like an antennae to send your intention into the universe

The Surrounding Stones: These are the crystals that are arranged around the center crystal in a geometric pattern and can range from 2 crystals to hundreds, depending on how complex you want to make it. What's great about crystal grids is that it is fully customizable to whatever you want it to be. The surrounding stones act like satellites, which are all receiving and sending out your intentions.

Activate Your Grid: Now that your Crystal Grid is arranged, take this time to meditate with it and repeat what intention you want to put out into the universe. Visualize your intention being sent out to the universe via the crystal grid. Once you feel at peace, express gratitude to the Universe and to your crystals.
