On the night of the Full Moon, you can perform this Forgiveness Ceremony. You can create your list in advance of those people, things or situations which have felt wrong to you or have harmed you. If you have not been especially nice to yourself, then add you to this list.
The following recommended steps are sourced from the book Moonology by Yasmin Boland. Anyone interested in working with the phases of the moon, I would recommend picking up a copy.
- Take a few deep breaths and always clear/cleanse yourself, those around you and your space before any ceremony or ritual.
- Now think about a habit, thought pattern, or an idea that has upset you and you want to release.
- Next, think of anyone who has upset you and list their names along with writing down what they did. This is now your forgiveness list.
- Close your eyes and visualize each person in turn. See them inside a pink bubble in your mind's eye (pink is the colour of love). See them smiling at you. Create a good feeling between you and this person. Say silently or out loud "I forgive you", then let them float off in their bubble. Do this for each person on your list.
- Now recite the following Full Moon Forgiveness and Karma Release formula:
- Under the glorious Full Moon, I forgive everything, everyone, every experience, every memory of the past or present that needs forgiveness. I forgive positively everyone. I also forgive myself of past mistakes. The Universe is love, and I am forgiven and governed by love alone. Love is now adjusting my life. Realizing this, I abide in peace.
- Finally, burn your forgiveness list. Please be safe - burn over a sink, caldron outside, or fire pit outside. This ritual releases the energies into the ether of transmutation into love.
The importance of Gratitude
By performing the ritual above, and writing your forgiveness list, you're releasing resentment, so you need to replace it. Gratitude is the ideal quality to replace resentment. It increases your vibration, so you will be happier, and the higher and clearer your vibration, the better able you will be to manifest in two weeks' time when the New Moon rolls around.
Happy Moon Blessings
