Full Moon Purging Ritual

September 15, 2011

I had a Tarot Reading done by Barbara Kauffman.  My cards stated that I had habits in my life I needed to release.

Barbara recommended that with the full moon approaching (September 12, 2011 was a Full Harvest Moon) it would be the perfect time to do a Ritual.

The full moon represents death, change, or tying up loose ends. We end a chapter in our lives and shed light on the things that we no longer need to hold on to.  Full Moon is the best time for purging rituals, to set free anything we want to release physically and mentally.

The closer to the Midnight of the Full Moon the more powerful the energy.

I spent some time meditating and collecting all things in my life I wish to release:  pain, annoyance, short temperness, laziness, frustration, anger, bad eating habits and on and on.

Write down everything you want to free from your life.

Each issue should be written on its own slip of paper.

As you write, visualize letting the habit go.  See it leave your body and mind.

Place all your paper strips into a fireproof container.  A cauldron would be so cool here, but I didn’t have one so I used a disposable baking pan.

Take your container outside

Say a little prayer

Light the paper on fire

Visualize all the negative things in your life releasing with the smoke

When the fire is out completely (use water) I buried the ashes.
