Moon Rituals with Reiki

Article by Ananya Sen

Sometimes we get clogged with excess energy by constantly healing our clients, friends and ourselves. There are times we feel our Reiki flow has reduced or is not as charged as it used to be. You need to recharge your Reiki batteries! You need to drain out excess energy and clear yourself as a channel.

Reiki connects us to the source, and the moon is a powerful celestial body of the source. And you can use this heavenly body of energy to recharge your Reiki batteries.

There are 2 kinds of moon rituals you can do, New Moon and Full Moon rituals. You need to note the time and day of the respective moon phases. This information is freely available online.

New Moon is for new beginnings, manifesting wishes, transformation and attracting money or love into your life.

Full Moon is for releasing negativity, bad karma, bad relationships / situations, weight loss, money problems, anything that is no longer serving you.

Do these rituals for short term wishes up to 3 months not longer, as you can do this every month. Use candles, incense and clear quartz crystals for these rituals. Use a small white candle and a quartz, there is no need to elaborate.

  1. Firstly, make intention slips, just like the ones you use in your Reiki box. Draw the symbols on the back and in the air around you. This will protect and ground you.
  2. Sit or stand near the moonlight, either out of the house or in some open place in your house from where you can see the moonlight. Breathe in the moonlight. This will clear your aura, chakras and make a connection with the moon. Most of you are energy sensitive, so making a connection will not be a problem. Use the distance symbol if you like to connect with the New / Full Moon.
  3. Read your wishes directly to the moon by saying “I wish to manifest these by the next month and I will come back again for more wishes. Thank you, thank you.” Burn the slips.

Word your intention slips according to the moon cycle. So for attracting things in your life, do this ritual around the New Moon and for releasing, do it around the Full Moon. This will also increase your Reiki flow.

    Dear Ananya, i going thru a strange emotional condition oflate. I am married but due to certian reasons have developed an irrepairable mental disconnect wit hubby, our relations are still harmoinious (universal love kinds). Mine is a love marriage and could marry after a prolonged resistence n opposition from parents. during my struggle for my marraige i met a fellow colleague and felt a strong mutual attraction. though there was nothing verbal between us. then i got married to my love and its been 13 yrs together. for the last 2-3 yrs I m feeling a stong pull towards that ex colleague of mine whom i have not met for around 10yrs. i feel like meeting him once. i try to heal this mental condition but it keeps coming on surface every now and then.
    I dont know how to deal with it. I m a second degree reiki practitioner. kindly guide.

      Dear Jyotie

      IM neither a healer nor someone with any special powers but as a women I would like say something. Dear, all men are same!!! Remember that ex colleague of urs must also be married and u bet her wife too must have got fed up of him after all these years of togetherness. There is no such thing as perfect relationship. Youhave to work on things. Remember you loved this man(ur hubby)once more than ur life. Didnt u? He is the same person who made ur heart best fast. And more over u dont want to let go off smone u have invested so much of time n energy training!! Can u afford to go through all this hassel again with another man???? Pls dont dear. I feel if u want u must must get in touch with that ex, spend smtime talking to him for few day and then u will realize what IM trying to convey. ALL men are same. ;). Ur life n ur time is precious. And u cant let relationship cant take a toll on it. Lots of love n best wishes

      Do nothing.
      Do not persue anyone.
      Do not end your marriage.
      Not now. Nothing is irrepairable. Your marriage has good energy. Live in the now and your path will be laid out for you. Trust.

      • Jyotie September 10, 2014, 5:15 am

      Hello Jyotie..

      Read about your situation just now. I just hope you are feeling better and have made peace with destiny. I can easily connect with u cause I’ve faced rather facing a similar situation. I have no words to suggest u to disconnect from this guy and get closer to your husband. All I can say is “STAY STRONG..”
      Heal yourself through Reiki, try to find solace in your heart..
      Stay blessed.. good luck, love,light and peace to u.

      • Jyotie November 7, 2014, 6:54 am

      Dear Jyotie,

      I hope you are emotionally stable by now. Since you have mentioned about completing 2nd degree, you can try to use Hosanna symbol along with Hon Sha Za Sho Nen and pray Archangel Michael to cut the aetheric cords (negativity) between you and your husband.

      With lots of Love!

    Hello, this is my first time today to read your articles. you are awesome!!

  • Ronak September 6, 2014, 3:24 pm

    Hello To All Reiki Channels. Jyoti,, u mentioned you are a second degree channel, well as you mentioned about your problem, what i see is, your urge to contact ur colleague is good, but, try ro know what urge is that. We all feel strong mutual connections other than our respective married partner. We all have traveled through so many births, we at times are unable to know, why we feel something for some one so strong it at times is more than we feel for our married partner. You can heal the disturbances in your current relationship with the Second Symbol, which is basically used for mental healing. You can heal your partners heart, it be easy as well. Try to change your perspective by just letting go…. you seem to be a very sensitive person, even a smallest of gesture from your partner matter a world to you, may be it’s all “absent” for quite some time, and it’s piling up within…. with continuous use of second symbol and third symbol, u can visualize you two together and clean any bad vibes affecting it,, wishing you happy life ahead. Love and Light To all of us. Thank you

    • Jyotie September 8, 2014, 5:10 am

      Thank you Raunak! i will definitely try what u hv told. I want to overcome this karmic pattern and thats why sought help. Thanks to u all channels for your valuable time and advices. may reiki guide me and sail me thru.

      God bless you All.

  • Lana September 9, 2014, 9:15 pm

    Hi, could you please clarify when exactly do the rituals. You write- around New moon, and around Full moon. So, is it on a first day of New/Full moon, or before (around)?. I am not completely sure I understood this from the article.

    Thank you! Very good advice, will do it today (second day of the Full moon).

  • Paula Smith September 10, 2014, 2:07 am

I am working in another place but i still miss my ex job. Can you please explain to me why is this happening to me. Thanks

  • Vanessa November 6, 2014, 6:21 pm

    Thank you Ananya for the article. You mentioned that the ritual for wishes should be for no more than 3 months. What is the significance of the 3 months?

  • Lisa November 6, 2014, 9:44 pm

    Thank you Ananya 🙂
    Your wisdom is shining love and light to me allowing my personal Reiki flow to manifest and bring great healing to myself and others that enter my orbit who desire wellness and healing. As this is a very new attunement for me I am gaining a huge amount of insight from everything you post. I feel that becoming a Reiki Master healer is a path that has been calling to me for a long time. May I thank you again for the sensitive and easy to follow directions on how to work with Reiki and the synbols. I have begun to follow them with more ease now. 🙂
    May your journey be with love, light and Peace.

  • Kathryn January 27, 2015, 6:55 pm

    This may be off subject but I need help. I am having trouble connecting when I do distance Reiki? I just recently became Reiki II Attuned. I am doing everything I learned but the people I have exchanged with ( a non-practitioner and also another practitioner) don’t seem to feel my energy? What am I doing wrong? Is there another way to connect? Help

  • Rajeshkumar Ringwala January 30, 2015, 4:10 am

    Thank you.

  • Rainee Carlson February 2, 2015, 3:08 pm

    I really enjoy the helpful tips and insight you provide on your blog. The moon ritual stuff is unlike most other reiki sites I read and is in alignment with the interests I enjoy learning about. I also like your style of writing and when I connected to your photo it made me smile. I am just now developing my website (which isn’t launched yet but plan to link to you in the near future). Best of luck and abundance to you. Thank you for the great work you do.

  • Sherry February 3, 2015, 5:38 am

    So I have a question on the full moon when I do my wishes and if I have five wishes can I read all five wishes to the moon the same time and then burn the paper when you say in your paragraph telling them in that you will come back for more wishes are you coming back the same night or ever month for three months with the same wishes are different wishes this just go the same for the full moon and the new Moon thank you. My phone moon is well actually it’s now today but will be tomorrow night

    • ananya March 7, 2015, 11:41 am

      Hi you can write as many wishes as you want, just read and burn them. Once a wish is over, no need to use it for the next time. “Coming back for more” means the next New or Full Moon.

  • Elham March 6, 2015, 6:44 am

    Thanks for the article. Well I think this article can help me because I really need help ,the help of GOD and reiki these days I’m confronting terrible conditions I have some emotional problems and I can’t recognize my right way and path actually my heart is buried by negative energy and sadness due to one person and I completely I lost my confidence I’m sure reiki can heal my heart and soul and will show me my great path full of love ,light and happiness

    • ananya March 7, 2015, 11:42 am

      Hi, the energy is still strong around Full Moon, release the pain, it will hurt but it’s worth it

  • satish May 7, 2015, 8:13 am

    Hi !! your article about new moon & full moon rituals is quite informative. I have only one doubt. On new moon day there is no moon in the sky. During the daytime, it travels all along the sun. In that case how to breath the moon light?

    Kindly clarify.

  • Usha June 12, 2015, 9:38 am

    Thank you…..Ananya

  • Mary June 15, 2015, 5:05 pm

    I was always told that the new waning moon cycle was for getting rid of the negative, removing what you no longer want in your life.
    and the Full moon waxing moon cycle was for attracting to you what you want. Money prosperity good health and so on.
    this was told to me by some one who is wiccan.

    My boyfriend is very sensitive to the full moon. When we had that full moon with the eclipse he had a bad anxiety attack at almost the exact time the full moon was at its peak. He often has some anxiety or is high strung during the regular full moons. Any suggestions or info on what might being going on? He is a Cancer which is a water sign but so am I and I don’t seem to be affected so any tips would be nice. Thank you!

  • Sudha January 20, 2016, 10:30 am
