April Full Moon: Tuesday, April 11, 2017
Time to release items that hold you back. The Full Moon energy helps us release that which no longer serves us.
New Moon: Wednesday, April 26, 2017
Time to create new intentions of what you want to create in your life. The New Moon energy helps us manifest that which serves our greater good.
The fragrant month of April is here, and it’s a beautiful month. Branches and flowers are blossoming, including the widespread moss pink. The various names for April’s Full Moon are linked to the many attributes that this month offers. Names include Pink Moon, Growing Moon, Seed or Planting Moon, Planter’s Moon, Budding Trees Moon, Egg Moon, Full Fish Moon, and Hare Moon.
This month’s Moon is about growth, fertility, and exuberance. It’s a time to find the courage and trust to take the first steps onto a new path. One of those first steps necessary in manifesting is releasing life practices that no longer serve us. Too often we cling to unhealthy patterns because they give us a false sense of security. On a conscious level, we may recognize the unhealthy patterns in our lives. However, on a subconscious level, we may feel safer holding on to them than letting go.
Reiki is a wonderful modality to help us become aware of, and release life patterns that no longer serve us. The Full Moon energy helps boost the process by creating fertile ground for the release of such patterns.
What Is Reiki?
The Reiki system of healing uses Universal Life Force Energy. Reiki originated in Japan. There are two branches; Eastern and Western Reiki. Both forms include the same basic features, and work with the “Rei” (Universal Life) + “Ki” (Energy). This Universal Life Force Energy is used to encourage healing in all living things on the mental, physical, emotional, & spiritual levels.
Reiki Full Moon Meditation
Reiki, combined with Full Moon energy is a powerful combination for releasing what no longer serves you. On the night of the Full Moon, call on Reiki and your Spiritual Guides to assist you with your Reiki self-healing meditation. If you’re not yet attuned to Reiki, you can work with Archangels to bless your healing ceremony with their energies.
Before you begin the meditation, create a sacred space by cleansing with a smudge stick or incense. You may incorporate flowers (daisy, sweet pea), colors (crimson red, gold), and stones (ruby, garnet). You can also do this meditation in the open, right under the Moon, if possible.
- Settle into a comfortable position. Begin by observing your breath; taking deep breaths in and out rhythmically.
Make a direct connection to the Moon with the Reiki distant symbol.
Alternatively, stretch your hands and invite the energy of the Full Moon into your space, while calling on Archangel Gabriel to help with this process.
Draw the Reiki emotional healing symbol on your heart, and allow Reiki to balance the energies.
Alternatively, place your hand on your heart and gently tap in this area three times. While calling on Archangel Raphael.
- Now visualize the Moon sending you down a silvery-white river of light.
- Receive the energy with your hands. Pour the energy over yourself, starting from your head down to your feet.
- Bring into your awareness the emotions that need resolution. Be honest with yourself, and acknowledge the pattern(s) that you need or choose to release.
- Set your intention to release this pattern from your energy field.
- If you could represent this emotion with an object, what would it be? Visualize your emotions forming into this object.
- Now visualize taking this object and placing it into the river. As you watch it float away say, “I now release all blocks that prevent me from manifesting my highest potential.”
Draw all the Reiki symbols to continue any residual healing, and seal with the power symbol.
Alternatively, call on Archangel Michael to gently pass his healing hands over your body.
- Once you are done, express gratitude, drink plenty of water, & ground yourself.
For deeply held patterns, this ritual may need to be done more than once. Release as much as feels natural to you every Full Moon. You don’t have to get everything accomplished the very first time. Every small step we take towards healing makes a positive difference.
