One of the rituals I started during my last Reiki Retreat was to burn away anything the girls wanted to release in the campfire. I decided then that it would be helpful to host a monthly Reiki burn bowl during the full moon.
This particular month it was said that this full moon was going to be super powerful. That we are being called to release and become more so now then ever before. I think humanity needs us to. I think we need us to! I felt called to remind everyone that feeling the need to release is not indicative of something being "wrong" with you. It's an act of love, a message to the universe that you are ready to step into your whole being. The wholeness you already are but have been conditioned not to believe. We are so amazing, and when we FEEL that without a shadow of a doubt, watch out! I mean that in the sense of so many great things come from unconditional God like love towards ourselves and others. I know this journey is scary but I promise you it is worth it. And it is beautiful when you recognize that thoughts, and beliefs and emotional patterns aren't serving your highest good any longer.
So, I asked the day before if anyone would like to put their name on a piece of paper to be burned in the bowl. Let me explain the magic of this for future reference as this is going to be a regular thing around here. If you only tell me your name, know that as long as you have given some thought and have said that you are ready the universe will work on whatever it is you're desiring. The magic doesn't lie in "me" during the burn. We are turning it over to a higher power. And that higher power goes by many names, not one of them being more right then another. However you feel the most loved and cared and connected is right for you!
If you would like your name in the bowl there are two ways to do it. You can message me on Instagram, or email me at email@example.com You can just tell me your name, or you can be specific to what you'd like to release. Before I do anything I ask the holy fire Reiki energy to surround everyone on the paper, the bowl, and myself. I take all of that write it down on a piece of paper and burn under the full moon.
This month I found a great full moon affirmation to speak and said these words after I burned the paper.
"Tonight I accept that things are falling into place for me. I am happy. I am at peace. I am calm. Everything is working out for me. I am blossoming into my fullness like the moon. I release all negativity from my life. I know that I am enough. I am spreading good energy wherever I go."
I chose to sit under the moon afterwards and just practice being. No wants or needs, just being. For once during the full moon I actually slept pretty good!
That is my goal from now on. To spend some time each day just "being". I'll let you know how it goes!
I hope next month I get the honor of burning something special for you!
