The “Out of the Funk, Into the Love” Release Ritual

There is a full moon coming up this Friday the 14th, which happens to be Valentine’s Day. The full moon is in the fire sign of Leo. You may be single, feeling slightly blue this Valentine’s Day. You may feel lonely. You may be dealing with a recent break-up. You may be in a state of stagnancy where you can’t seem to meet somebody. Whatever your situation is now is only temporary. I’m going to help you out of the funk and into the love.

This is a simple, lovely full moon ritual that’s going to help you release some shitty emotional baggage, which will free up some emotional space in your heart. You need to let go of the old emotions from the past to welcome in the new emotions. Friday night, you are going to focus on releasing all the emotional residue that’s blocking you from finding love and happiness.

You will need a black or light blue candle, and one pink candle. You will need a sheet of paper, a pen, a bowl of water, and sea salt.

On your piece of paper, you’re going to write down three names of people who have hurt you in your life. Look at the names on the paper and think about what they did to you and how that made you feel. You want to bring this emotion to the surface. Write down the first emotion you feel.

Now you’re going to speak their name out loud and say “I forgive you.” You will do this for all three people on your list. When you are finished, you are going to fill the bowl with water and sprinkle some sea salt in it. You are then going to put the sheet of paper in the water. Place the bowl in front of a window where the moon can shine upon it. Once you do this, light your black or light blue candle. This candle will represent the pain this person has caused you.

You will look at the candle, and once again say each name out loud and “I forgive you.” As the candle burns, the hurt that you once felt dissolves in the flame. Let that candle burn until it goes out on its own. Be safe. You can always snuff it out and re-light it if need be.

In the morning, you are going to take the piece of paper that has been soaking in the bowl of water and throw it away. If you live near a body of water, you can dispose of it there. I once performed a full moon ritual of release and the next day, I went to the ocean and let the paper I had written everything on, drift away by the tide. It was a wonderful way to release my issues to the Universe.

Once the black or blue candle has burnt out, light your pink candle. Think of this candle as new love in your heart. You are ready to love and be loved. But most importantly, you love yourself. The pink candle represents love. That love replaces all the darkness and pain that you had been holding on to. The Universe will give you love, and in turn, you will feel love for yourself. This love will heal you. And once you are healed, you will find loving relationships.

Manifesting with the Gemini Full Moon, December 17, 2013

This December Full Moon aka “The Cold Moon” will appear on Tuesday, December 17, in the sign of Gemini. Since Gemini is the sign of duality or the “twins”, we can manifest two desires at once. The best thing we can do during this Full Moon is meditate, center ourselves, and write down two items we wish to manifest in the new year.

You need to be clear when setting the intentions. If you want a relationship in 2014, write down “I am in a loving, romantic relationship.” If you wish for more money in the new year, you will write “I have an abundance of money.” Write out the intention as if you already have it.

I enjoy casting spells and setting intentions during full moons, because the energy is especially powerful. Intuitively, I feel as if this particular Full Moon has a lot of oomph and yummy energy. If you wish to boost the energy of your manifesting, I would suggest buying two candles: one for each goal you wish to manifest.

I personally love candles and think they can be quite effective for sending out the energy of what we want into the Universe. The Universe is listening. We just have to know how to tell it what we desire: This is the key to manifesting wonderful things.

Choose two candles to represent the two intentions. For example, if I want abundance in 2014, I’ll burn a green candle. If I want more passion and energy in my life, I’ll burn a red candle. If I’m seeking love, I’ll burn a pink candle. Here is an entire list of candle colors and their meanings. They can be any size candle. For this, two votives would work fine.
 
Read off your two intentions out loud and light the candles. Burn them all the way down. If you have to go to sleep or leave the house, you can either put them in the sink to burn or “snuff” out the candles, do not blow out, and relight them when you’re back.
Take the slip of paper where you wrote the intentions and place it underneath your mattress. Good luck and happy manifesting for the new year!

What do you wish to manifest in your life for 2014?
 

Full Moon Spell to Heal a Broken Heart

A girlfriend contacted me last night, asking for a spell to heal her broken heart. What perfect timing since the full moon is tonight! This spell is all about healing. We can’t prevent the emotional pain that’s inflicted upon us, but we can actively work toward healing from it as quickly as possible. The universe is always willing to help us when we ask.

This is the spell I concocted for her.

Full Moon Spell to Heal a Broken Heart

I have just the right spell for a person with a broken heart.  I like simple spells, so all you’ll need is 2 votive candles. I prefer the short, stubby ones. 1 blue and 1 pink. Before your spell, you will need to write out a little prayer asking whomever you pray to (God, Jesus, Mary, the saints, gods/goddesses, etc.) for whatever you are asking for. It’s your prayer of intention. Or you could even address your prayer to the universe. Do whatever you feel comfortable with. Once you have the prayer written and the candles, you’re ready to cast your spell.

You’ll want to do this spell after the sun goes down tonight. Close your eyes and get into a quiet space in your mind and then when you’re ready, call in Archangel Michael for protection. Think of him as a guardian as you do your magick. Ask him to watch over you and guard your circle with his blue sword of fire. Ask to be enveloped in White Light and Love. Now you’re going to say your prayer of intention that you’ve written. Say it as many times as you want. If you’re happy with once, say it once. Your spell is your spell.

Once you have said your prayer, you will light the blue candle first. Think of this candle as healing your broken heart. Then, light the pink candle. Think of this as filling your heart again with love. Not love from a partner, but love from yourself. Visualize your broken heart coming back together piece by piece filling with warmth and love.

Burn the candles all the way down until they go out themselves. If you need to go to bed or leave the house, snuff them out, DON’T blow them out. You can re-light them when you come back/wake up. But you want to burn them all the way down. That’s the key. The candles hold the energy of what you’re asking for. After you light the candles, thank and give gratitude to whomever you said the prayer to and thank and tell Archangel Michael that he can leave your circle.

Once you cast it, don’t even think about it. Let the Universe do its work. A spell usually takes up to 30 days to work, a whole moon cycle.
