Full moons are times when the moon is reflecting all of the sunlight it receives, flooding the earth with powerful energies. These are great times for healing and releasing old blocks. The full moon lights up the night, and energetically, these are times when the light can more easily eliminate the darkness in our lives.
Before you begin the meditation, you can create a sacred space if you like, with candles, incense and flowers. Another option is to do this meditation in the open, right under the moon.
- Settle into a comfortable posture. Begin by observing your breath for some time.
- Draw the emotional healing symbol in your heart and allow Reiki to balance the energies.
- Now imagine the moon overhead, vibrant and shining. Meditate on this image for a while.
- Next, imagine that the moon is sending down to you a silvery, white river of light. It comes meandering down, flowing right in front of you. Watch this river of moonlight for some time, enjoying its beauty.
- Bring into your awareness, the emotions that need resolution. Pick one at a time, and if there is a related incident, relive the incident, allowing yourself to feel every emotion that comes up. Feel it as intensely as possible, and check if this emotion is manifesting as a sensation anywhere in the body. If it is, draw all the symbols in that area, otherwise draw it in the heart.
- If you could represent this emotion with an object, what would it be? What would be its color? Imagine your emotions condensing into this object in that area of your body.
- Now imagine that you are taking this object and giving it to the river. Yes. Just let it go, let it flow. Watch it float away into oblivion.
- If you have more than one issue, repeat the process again from step 5, for the next one.
- Once you are done, thank the river and ask it to go back to the moon.
- Be deeply aware of how your body feels from inside, and draw all the symbols again to continue any residual healing. Seal with the power symbol. Open your eyes whenever you are ready.
