On any given night, the moon is either waxing or waning. But there’s one specific night each month when the moon is at its fullest- and that’s when manifesting can be especially powerful!
Are you familiar with the phrase “light up the world”? According to manifestation experts, this is precisely what you can do on a Full Moon.
By harnessing the power of this celestial event, you can make your dreams and desires a reality.
To manifest on a Full Moon, you must cleanse your space on all levels – physical, emotional, and mental, connect with the lunar energy throughout the month, visualize what you want, and affirm your desires. You will need to honor your intuition and raise your frequency to open yourself to receiving blessings from the moon’s energy.
The Full Moon is one of the most potent times of the month for manifesting.
Generally, it is believed that New Moon is for attracting things you desire in your life, and the rituals performed during the Full Moon should be aimed at releasing what no longer serves you. So you can create space in your life for attracting new beginnings and the experiences you desire.
Here’s how to make the most of a full moon and create positive change in your life.
10 Steps To Manifest on a Full Moon
The more you practice manifesting throughout the month, the stronger your manifesting abilities during the Full Moon. The more you connect with the moon’s energy, the more it will support you on your manifesting journey.
A full Moon symbolizes the full bloom, expansion, and ripeness; this is the time of the month when the energies in nature are especially active, so you can use them to amplify your manifestations.
1. Cleanse Your Space
The first step to Manifest on a Full Moon is to cleanse your space. It should include your physical environment and your inner landscape.
If you’re carrying any negativity, it’s time to let it go. Make room for positive change by releasing what’s not serving you. You can do this through meditation, journaling, or taking a few deep breaths.
Releasing what doesn’t serve us is not always easy, as everything, including our struggles, becomes a part of our identity that can be very hard to release.
Journal to discover and process your limiting beliefs and any beliefs holding you back from living your best life.
You might also consider cleansing and organizing your environment, ending a toxic relationship, or anything else that’s holding you back. Let it go, and trust that the Universe has something better in store for you.
2. Set Your Intentions
It’s time to set your intentions for the future.
- What do you want to manifest?
- What are your deepest desires?
Be specific and get clear on what you want. The more specific you are, the easier it will be for the Universe to deliver.
Take some time to reflect on your passions, and journal about the vision of your future. Think about what brings you joy and happiness and the type of life you desire to live.
3. Connect With the Lunar Energy
As the full moon rises, take a moment to connect with its energy. Go outside, look up at the sky, or simply close your eyes and visualize the moon.
Feel its power wash over you, and let yourself be open to receiving its gifts. Ideally, you can do it outdoors; if that is impossible, try to get a glimpse of the moonlight through your window.
Light a candle in gratitude to the moon, and place your manifestation attributes and crystals near you.
4. Visualize What You Want To Manifest
After you’ve connected with the lunar energy, it’s time to start visualizing what you want to manifest. Think of your desires and manifestations, and imagine the feeling you will feel when your dreams come true.
See yourself achieving your goals, living your dreams, and experiencing all the happiness and success you desire. Picture it in as much detail as possible.
- What does it look like?
- What does it feel like?
The more detailed and specific you can make it in your mind, the easier it will be to manifest in real life.
Don’t rush this process, and allow yourself to enjoy it as much as possible. Pay attention to the feelings in your body and notice if there is any tension. It might signalize your subconscious resistance to your manifestations.
Relax all your body parts one by one while still keeping your manifestations in mind. Take deep breaths as you visualize so your body becomes familiar and accustomed to the images you are trying to manifest.
5. Affirm Your Desires
In addition to visualizing your desires, it’s also important to affirm them. It means speaking positive statements about what you want to attract into your life.
For example, you might say, “I have everything I need for success,” or “I am attracting abundance into my life.”
Say your affirmations out loud, and genuinely believe them. Say whatever you wish to be true in the present form.
Don’t use affirmations in a negative form, for example, saying “I am no longer poor”; instead, claim your desires by stating, “I enjoy the abundance of the Universe, and I have everything I need!”.
Choose the affirmations that resonate with you, or write them yourself. The Universe will respond to your belief and start bringing your desires into reality.
If you don’t know where to start and which affirmations to use, a great place to start is Louise Hay’s book I Can Do It: How to Use Affirmations to Change Your Life.
You can also listen to this book daily in audio format; it has many valuable affirmations that can help you improve all aspects of your life.
6. Honor Your Intuition
You might already know that the moon is related to the power of the subconscious mind, your psychic powers, and your intuition. Throughout the Manifesting on a Full Moon process, it’s important to honor your intuition.
Trust it if you feel called to take a particular action or get a strong gut feeling about something! The Universe is trying to guide you toward your goals, so following your intuition will help you get there faster.
You might get a spontaneous idea that you want to add to your manifestation ritual – follow it; it might be a sign from the Universe!
7. Express Gratitude
The Universe is always working hard to bring you what you desire. Therefore it’s important to express gratitude for all the good that you already have in your life.
It doesn’t mean you should stop wanting more- it just means you should appreciate what you already have while manifesting your dreams. You open yourself up to even more abundance every time you feel grateful.
Gratitude elevates your frequency and helps you align with more positive experiences.
8. Raise Your Vibration
Raising emotional vibrations means filling your life with positive things that make you feel good.
Spend time surrounded by nature, listen to uplifting music, and spend time with people who make you feel good. The higher your vibration, the easier it will be to manifest your desires.
Everything you do, including your thoughts, beliefs, and diet, affects your frequency – therefore, focus on this step daily.
You can determine where you are vibrationally by researching the emotional vibration scale. It can open your mind to a new perspective.
As the great inventor Nikola Tesla said, ‘If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration.’ It is a piece of great advice when it comes to manifesting.
9. Connect With Lunar Energy Throughout the Month
The lunar cycle doesn’t end when the full moon fades away. You can continue to connect with its energy throughout the month and even use it to help manifest your desires.
Whenever you feel called to do so, go outside and spend time under the moonlight. Visualize what you want to manifest, and feel the power of the Universe.
Throughout history, many cultures have believed that it is essential for our body, mind, and health to be aligned with the lunar cycles. When your body is ideally in sync with natural cycles, you might have your period precisely on New Moon or, in some cases, on Full Moon.
In both cases, it is considered a healthy sign.
10. Surround Yourself With Symbols of the Moon
There are many ways to keep the moon’s energy close to you.
You can wear jewelry with moonstones or other crystals, decorate your home with images of the moon, and even cook with lunar herbs. You can keep the Moon card of the tarot in your journal or listen to the moon mantras.
By surrounding yourself with symbols of the moon, you’ll keep its energy close and increase your chances of manifesting your desires.
The full moon embodies the energy of the subconscious mind and the invisible world. The next time you see a full moon, take some time to reflect on what you want to manifest in your life.
Get clear about your desires and write them down. Visualize yourself achieving these goals and feel the positive emotions that come with them.
Send your love, gratitude, and intentions into the light of the moon. Trust that as you take these actions, the Universe will conspire in your favor and help you achieve everything you desire.
