Things to do to connect with the full moon
The full moon is a powerful time to connect with the divine, be in nature and tap into your intuition. It’s also a great time to set intentions for the month ahead. With that in mind, here are some things you can do to connect with the full moon:
Make moon water.
Making moon water is a simple process that will allow you to harness the power of the full moon. The water acts as a conductor for energy, so it's best to use this method when you want an extra boost of positive energy in your life!
Collect some spring or distilled water (tap water will work too)
Add about 10 drops of rosemary essential oil or 2 tablespoons dried rosemary leaves into a glass jar. Fill up the rest of your jar with spring/distilled water and shake well until all ingredients are dissolved into solution.*
To use: Pour 1-2 teaspoons over your face and body before bedtime each night during full moon cycles.* Store in refrigerator if not using immediately; keep out at room temperature otherwise.*
Charge your crystals under the light of the full moon.
You can charge your crystals under the light of the full moon, but make sure you cleanse them afterwards. When charging your crystals, stand with them facing towards you and hold them in both hands (or one if it's small enough). Focus on what you want to achieve while holding them in this position for at least 15 minutes. Once charged, place your crystal back on its base or somewhere where it won't be disturbed again until morning when it will lose its charge.
You can also use this time as an opportunity to meditate on what it is that makes up who you are and where your passions lie; do some soul searching!
Connect with Source through meditation.
There are a number of ways to connect with Source. One of the best is meditation. Meditation can be done anywhere and at any time, in groups or alone. It's especially helpful if you're feeling disconnected from the world around you or overwhelmed by stressors in your life.
Meditation is an ancient practice that has been shown to improve focus and concentration, reduce stress levels (and therefore lower blood pressure), improve immune function, increase creativity and more!
Gaze upon the full moon and visualize your intentions, goals and dreams for this month.

Burn sage and salt to cleanse yourself and your home before new moons, or if you feel there is an energy shift within them
Sage and salt can be used to cleanse your home and yourself before new moons, or if you feel there is an energy shift within them. Sage is a cleansing herb that has been used for thousands of years in Native American ceremonies. It has a smokey smell that clears the air around it, making it ideal for cleansing spaces or people who are experiencing negative energies from other sources. Salt is also purifying, so when these two elements are combined together, they produce an extremely powerful cleanser!
Sage and salt can either be burned separately or together during this ritual--the choice is yours! If you're lighting sage alone: Light one end of your bundle with matches (or lighter), taking care not to burn yourself as you do so; blow out any embers that appear while burning; then let go once all flames have died down completely (you may need another match). Once complete put out any remaining embers by sprinkling them with water from the sink.*
If using both herbs at once: Simply light both ends simultaneously until they're fully ablaze then extinguish according to above instructions.*
Connecting with the moon can help you feel more balanced
The full moon is a powerful source of energy, and it can be used to help you feel more balanced. If you're feeling unbalanced or off-kilter, connecting with the moon can help bring you back into balance. The best way to do this is by meditating during a full moon meditation session!
The best time for setting intentions and goals is right before or after your full moon meditation session. This way, these intentions will come into fruition during that month as they align with its energy--and who doesn't want their dreams coming true.
So, if you're feeling like your life is out of balance and in need of some spiritual guidance, then we recommend trying out some of these things to do with the full moon. The best thing about connecting with this powerful light is that it doesn't take much effort or time - all it requires is a willingness to open up yourself to new experiences!
