How to Harness the Positive Energy from a Full Moon

There are plenty of myths and legends about the power of a full moon. Some things you may have heard in the past are nothing more than old tales passed down through time. But, you shouldn’t completely ignore the idea that there is something special about a full moon – specifically, the positive energy it can bring.

Harnessing the positive energy of a full moon can help your mind, body, and spirit. It is one of the strongest energy sources that we can absorb, and so many people don’t take full advantage of that because they simply don’t know how.

Follow some of the tips listed in this guide to harness the powerful positive energy a full moon has to offer and keep away the negative energy that may be trying to consume your thoughts. When you fully grasp the power of the moon, you are sure to notice positive changes in your mind, body, and spirit.

Release Your Anger

The energy that comes from a full moon can intensify your current thoughts and feelings. So, it is important to push away anger and bitterness around this time. Let go of any bitterness you might be holding onto. You can start to do this a few days ahead of time by trying deep breathing exercises and/or meditation. You want to rid yourself of any negative thoughts as much as possible, so that the positive ones can really shine through and grab the moon’s energy to amplify them.

Think Positive

Just as it is important to let go of darker/negative thoughts, it is just as equally important to think positively during a full moon. Your positive energy will be enhanced by the moon’s natural power, and you will feel so much better about the many positive things in your life.

The best part? It doesn’t take much to amplify your positivity, thanks to the awesome energy of the moon. Spend five minutes outside soaking up the full moons positive light and think about the things in your life that you are grateful for. You can also recite a positive mantra or affirmation to yourself. Take time to appreciate the natural beauty around you, and the special people in your life. The opportunities are endless, which means that the positive energy that can be amplified by a full moon is also endless!

Picture Your Dreams Coming True

It is quite natural to think about your dreams regularly and deeply wish for them to come true. A full moon is a great time to take that one step further. Focus on those dreams manifesting. What does it look like? How would it make you feel? The more you can envision your dreams becoming a reality, the easier it can be for that ‘extra’ energy from the moon to make it happen!

Don’t just wait until a full moon comes around. You should envision your dreams coming true on a daily basis. They don’t just have to be wishes that you think will never come true. The more you strongly believe in your dreams becoming a reality, the more likely you will be to see that pay off one day. Write your dreams down in a journal or post the ideas on a vision board that you can look at each day for added inspiration.

 

 

Re-Charge Your Crystals

If you have some crystals at home, a great way to re-charge them is during a full moon. First cleanse your crystals in water and then put them outside or near a window where they will get direct moonlight. As you place each crystal down, set a positive intention for each one you have if you have a few different crystals. I have a number of crystals, so I like to make a different intention for each crystal that will affect different areas of my life such as health, positive thinking, energy etc. I find that crystals act as beautiful reminders of the different areas of my life that I would like to improve.

Meditate

I touched on meditation earlier in this article, but when it comes to harnessing the energy of a full moon, meditation deserves its own category. Meditation during a full moon is not only a great way to clear your thoughts and opening yourself up to it’s powerful energy. You will also be able to dive deeper into your meditative state. This allows for a deeper state of self-consciousness.

If you really want to utilize the energy coming from the moon, try meditating in a group. The more people there are in the room, all focusing on letting that positive power in, the more energy that will be circulating. It can be an extremely powerful experience if everyone is open to it.

Do More for Others

You can also use the moon’s energy to send blessings to people. You can send healing energy, kindness, forgiveness, and so much more, and it will all be transported via the moon’s power. You don’t have to limit this positive energy just to people that you know. Send a blessing of peace to the many troubled countries of the world. The moon’s power can be at your fingertips, so it’s a great idea to use it in order to do something good for others.

It doesn’t have to be difficult to immerse yourself into the positive energy of a full moon. The biggest thing to keep in mind is how open you need to be to accepting that energy and pushing away any type of negativity that could instead become amplified.

Once you open yourself up to this abundance of positive energy, you can do so much for yourself, the people you care about and also the world around you. It starts by practicing these techniques as often as possible, and not just when a full moon comes around. This way, by the time it does, the things that you are already thinking, feeling and practicing will only be amplified by the moon’s great positive power.

6 Reasons Why You Should Create A Bucket List

Reasons Why You Should Create A Bucket List

The term ‘bucket list’ has become quite popular in recent years. It has been used in pop culture references and as a casual topic of conversation when someone wants to do something. Chances are, you have heard someone say, “Oh, that’s on my bucket list!” But, a bucket list is more than just a fantasy, an out of reach dream or an excuse to say that you want to do many things, only to never follow through on them.

There are actually many benefits to creating a bucket list, if you just put in the time, the thought and the dedication into it. Making a bucket list is a perfect way to set your life goals and to stay focused on making them a reality. Still not 100% convinced? Let’s take a look at six reasons why you really should create a bucket list. Maybe, by the end of this article, you will be ready to put together one of your very own.

1. It Gives You a Purpose

While putting together a bucket list won’t tell you what the meaning of your life is, it can help to give you a purpose to your life. A bucket list should be more about the major goals that you have for yourself, rather than a bunch of fun little things that you might want to do. A bucket list gives you something to get out of life and allows you to stay focused while you are doing it.

Have you ever been bored, wondering what you’re going to do this weekend to fill up your free time? A bucket list can give you that answer, encouraging you to always work towards the things that you truly want to do and experience in life.

2. It Brings Your Goals to Life

As stated above, a bucket list should be about exciting goals that you have for yourself. But, it is also an opportunity to hone in on those goals. Many people have ambitions and even make goals or resolutions for themselves each year only to be forgotten a few days later. But, when you have a specific list of goals written down, it can help to make you more motivated and focused to achieve them.

Goals are incredibly important to have, and the fact that your bucket list can make those goals clearer and more tangible is really important.

3. You Will Create Lasting Memories

Memories are one of life’s greatest treasures. As you start to accomplish the things on your bucket list, you will also be making wonderful memories each time. Since you are doing the things you really want to do, those memories will bring you comfort, a sense of achievement and give you something positive to look back on and share with others.

4. It Will Pull You Forward

Have you ever been in a “funk” in life, or maybe you have had bouts of feeling down or depressed that have kept you from doing the things you typically enjoy? No one wants to stay in that kind of mindset for long. Because a bucket list can help to give you a sense of purpose, it can also give you the motivation to pull yourself out of a funk. It can call you to do something new, something different, or something that even challenges you. Sometimes, that’s all a person needs to be pulled out of a tired or depressed state.

Additionally, doing something on your bucket list will help to distract you for a while. That can be a great solution for someone who has anxiety or tends to focus too much on the negative things in life. Sometimes, a distraction can be a welcomed reprieve.

5. You Will Experience Life-Long Learning

When you commit yourself to having new experiences, you are also committing yourself to learning something new. So many people think that learning stops when you finish school, but you can learn so much more simply by living and trying more new things throughout your life. People who embrace this type of lifestyle are called “lifelong learners”. The reality is this; you will never be able to learn everything there is to know. But, because all of us have such a short time on this planet to figure things out, the more experiences we participate in, the more that we will learn and grow. Not only can a bucket list help you to learn things about different cultures, skills, situations, people and personalities.

It can also help you to learn more about yourself. Closing your mind off to the idea of lifelong learning will cause you to become stagnant with your thoughts and your growth. As a human being, you should have a desire to continue to grow and achieve as much as you possibly can throughout your life. Working through your bucket list can help you to achieve that.

6. You Will Never Run Out of Things to Do

If you sit down to make a bucket list, you might write down anywhere from 10-100 things that you really want to do. But, it doesn’t have to stop there. Chances are, as you start to work through some of the things on your list, you will come up with more ideas.

Experiencing new things, and even challenging things, is a great way to get inspired and motivated to continue on that trend. A bucket list can truly be never-ending as you come up with more exciting new ideas and goals for yourself.

Building Your Bucket List and Bettering Your Life

There are so many additional reasons why you should create a bucket list for yourself. Remember, a bucket list is a very personal thing, and the experiences you put on the list should be things that you truly want to do or accomplish. Don’t make them  so unrealistic that you will never plan on committing to. Instead, promise yourself that you will immerse yourself in those experiences.

A bucket list might be something you create to accomplish things before you pass on, but in creating one and diving into new experiences, there is a good chance you will feel more alive than ever!
