February’s full snow moon. Hunger moon. Native Americans gave this full moon both names because this month we get the most snowfall, and this month our stockpile is running low.
Not that I am trying to inject any lack here, so if you’re hungry, go eat something before you continue here.
Ready? Let’s do it.
This full super moon is a pretty powerful one, kids. Super moons get their name because they are closer to the earth, so they’re bigger and brighter …actually…here. This is what www.space.com says about it:
A supermoon happens when the full moon coincides with the moon’s closest approach to Earth in its orbit. Supermoons make the moon appear a little brighter and closer than normal, although the difference is hard to spot with the naked eye. The first supermoon of 2019 was the Super Blood Wolf Moon on Jan. 20-21, and two more supermoons will follow on Feb. 19 and March 21.
This big and beautiful moon will also bring an end to the uncomfortable energy you may be feeling. You may feel uncomfortable in your work, love life or even spiritual path, because you’re ready to push forward and start something new.
And this is where forgiveness and gratitude play their part in the moon dance.
This yang-ness means that it’s time to either move forward with the intention you set at the new moon, or accept that it may not have been best for you at this time and release.
Sometimes, if the horse you are riding has died, ya just gotta dismount and forget the CPR. This can be especially true on the love side of things. Forgive and make room for someone new.
As I sit here writing this, and you’re going to think I’m lying (one of my mom’s favorite sayings) but I’m watching a movie called “Just Friends” with Ryan Reynolds and Anna Faris and Oh My Lanta her song is called Forgiveness. If you are into comedies, this one is highly recommended because, well, look:
But funny movies aside, forgiveness is our theme for this full moon as it marks the end of the lunar cycle. At full moon, we are forced to deal with our “ID” or our shit. A lot of people cannot handle the full moon energy so instead of dealing, they medicate or even make rash decisions they regret later.
Let’s not be in that camp, but accept that full moon is a very powerful time to work on ourselves. Let go of ego. Fear. Disappointment. Jealousy. Guilt. Anything that doesn’t serve us. All of it.
The full moon illuminates the darkest parts of ourselves, but can help us release and cleanse in a way that makes our gratitude swell with immeasurable power.
Forgiving others you may feel have done you wrong is only half the equation here, my moon babies. Forgiving yourself is the actual work here. We all have “shit” that we struggle with and think it will haunt us for the rest of our days, but this is the time to release the grudges we hold against ourselves, as well as others.
To release the karma, we MUST forgive, and it’s important to understand why you keep hearing the same thing all over the internet about forgiveness being for you and not the other person, and I’m here to tell you this: YOU are carrying the burden. YOU are the one stuck when you don’t forgive. Life truly becomes easier when you learn to accept the apology you never got.
Manifestation will be stunted without forgiveness and gratitude, and as I am launching a new lunar manifestation mini-course next month, I really want to drive this point home. Manifesting with the new moon without forgiveness and gratitude is just a waste of your time.
Let’s begin our ritual.
This ritual is about writing down those hurtful words that were spoken, or even thoughts. If someone has hurt you, write down the words they used to do so.
Is your inner dialog the one hurting you and telling you that you’re a piece of shit? Write it down.
Did your lover tell you you’ve gained weight or you just aren’t exciting anymore? Write that shit down, because we are going to tie it up and burn that bitch.
We are gonna let it all go and move the hell on and replace those hurt feelings with the gratitude that makes it possible to face another day.
What you will need:
1. Cauldron or burn proof vessel
2. Thread or string long enough to knot 9 times
3. A match
4. A natural piece of paper that has the edges torn – nothing with lines
6. I chose a Spirit quartz to help uplift and raise your vibration. This stone can help you with growth and enlightenment while radiating energies of balance and even harmony.
About your vibration:
The trick to manifestation is raising your vibration to the frequency of the new person you are becoming.
This new person has forgiven, released, moved on and resides in a space of love and gratitude.
This is the secret. In order to receive, you have to be on the right frequency.
Raise your energy to the level this new person stays. New beliefs, behaviors, new you. One who has lifted up in spirit and the one you want to become, so you start living as that person from this point forward.
I’m not going to go over casting a circle or a formation, because this is entirely up to you. Whatever you do to prepare for ritual is yours and yours alone.
1. Write down all the hurtful and negative words on a piece of natural paper with torn edges.
2. Turn the paper 90 degrees counter clockwise to banish that shit and write your name across them 9 times.
3. When you have finished, turn it right side up again and in a circle, without lifting your pen from the paper write:
Your words have no power over me.
4. Meditate on this sentence. KNOW IT. FEEL IT. BELIEVE IT. Words only have the power we give them. Take that power back and raise your vibration in meditation.
5. Take the string or thread and tie it 9 times while focusing on this mantra. Your words have no power over me.
3. Roll the paper up, rolling away from you and tie with the string.
4. Light and place in the fire proof bowl.
5. As it burns, recite the following incantation:
With the moon as my witness, I forgive.
With every breath I take.
I release all grudges and pain.
Forgiving myself for every mistake.
Hurtful words have no power over me.
I open up and accept my wounds
and move on to better frequency.
So mote it be.
6. Take the ashes and flush them down the toilet.
Now step into a space of gratitude. You may not want to, but give thanks for the pain. If your significant other has hurt you, thank them and make way for new love. If a family member has overstepped, forget about it and move on.
When the disseminating moon gets here, you’ll be thankful that it happened. After all, if it COULD have happened any other way, it would have, my loves, I promise.
