Full Moon Healing

Full Moon and Healing

We have looked at special events and power associated with the New Moon. Let’s look now at how a Full Moon can magnify healing energy.

The lunar cycle is every 29.5 days. Google the lunar cycle to see where you are in terms of the current cycle. Ideally, being close to the New Moon is best for this exercise. The New Moon, New things, New Hopes, New wishes. The full moon brings new wishes and hopes to fruition.

The moon is important. The moon is the light that made the night livable for the ancients, the nightly plunge into darkness was not so scary with the moon to shine down and illuminate the land. Over time, rituals and beliefs became associated with the Moon in its own right. Where it was in the sky, what phase of the moon all helped describe the progress of days, weeks, and a month. Astrology and the beginnings of astronomy soon took over as the human mind expanded and experimented with the way the world and the heavens worked. 

The sun is too bright to look at unless you are looking at sunrise or sunset, but even then, you cannot look at it much after or before the final few minutes. This in part is why Druids and other ancient religions marked the Summer and Winter Solstices, at dawn, not Midday.

The new moon historically has been a time to look forward to new opportunities, new manifestation and new intentions. It has been a time to look backwards and discard what is not working, what has passed the part it is to play in your life.

A full moon is all the energy of a new moon come to fruition. Now is the time to join with that energy to let it magnify Reiki energy and help others.

Whether they be clients, loved ones, or pets. Now is the time during the month when they can each be helped the most. Oh, and don’t forget yourself. A self-Reiki session is as important as what you do for others. So, let’s get to it!

Ideally you should be attuned to reiki at the Master/teacher level. But even Level 1 Attunement brings benefits to those we provide energy to.

If you can sit outside, at night, facing the Full moon you will receive the most energy from the moon. Consider its shape and color of its reflected light. That reflected light is from the sun. 

We cannot look at the sun during the day, it is too bright and it would damage our eyes. But at night, especially with a full moon, we can look at the light of the sun as it is reflected.

Close your eyes and start a regular remote Reiki Session.

Ask Archangel Michael to protect the session from any spiritual interference. 

Use the distance symbol – Hunshazishuneen – pronounced “Hahn Sha Zay Show Neen.” This symbol carries the meaning of “The Divine Power in me greets the Divine Power in you to promote enlightenment and peace”. The direct translation is “The Buddha in me sees the Buddha in you”. This symbol transmits Reiki across distance, space and time and is used primarily for distance healing. 

Ask the angels, archangels and guides of the person you are conducting the session for to join your session. They should be asked to join with your own angels, archangels and guides.

Start with Cord Cutting. There is no one better than Archangel Michael to do this. Ask him to cut any cords attached to the recipient of this session and for him to fill the person with his Pure White Light and surround them with his protective energy.

Continue channeling Reiki energy and also channeling the energy you are receiving from the full moon. Consider anything special about the recipient’s physical needs, emotional needs. 

Sei He Ki – the mental and emotional symbol Sehekey pronounced “Say He Key” is used for mental healing, accessing the subconscious and calming the mind. The translations mean “as above, so below” and represents Divine Source and human coming together. The use of this symbol is to address the emotional component behind physical diseases or energy blocks. Especially important in this time of COVID-19 to lift their worries, doubts and fears.

Finally, if your Reiki guides tell you there I nothing else to do for the recipient, close the session with the Reiki Power symbol Chokurey. Chokurey pronounced “Cho-koo-ray” is used to increase power.  The symbol means “current” and the symbol and its related words make a statement to the universe:  “Put the Power Here”.

The translation for Chokurey means “command to the universal life energy”.  The symbol draws energy around you and brings it to focus where you want it. The symbols should be made quite large with your palm over the recipient and then repeat silently the word ‘Chokurey’ three times. You can repeat the command while making the symbol or after you have completed it.  

Chokurey is a curving sword, which makes space by penetrating nothingness and filling it with spirit or power. It is the great accelerator which directs and focuses power wherever used, repeating the work Chokurey increases the power. 

Finally, as you invited the recipient’s angels, archangels and guides to join us, we must now send them back to the person we are conducting the session for.

If you are at the end of the remote sessions, and your own! Now is the time to thank Archangel Michael for his protection and help.

I would spend a few minutes studying and reflecting on the Moon and the light it sheds on us when it is full and tank it also for the added potency it has provided to our session.

A New Moon and a Wish

A New Moon and a Wish. New Moons are special events. They are very good for focusing our intention on manifesting new things in our lives. Whether it is something material, maybe a new car or deeply personal such as a relationship. A new Moon is a good time to concentrate on it and get your wish in tune with the phases of the moon.

It’s very simple really. Yiu plant a wish in the rich energy of the Moon, Reiki energy and the wonderful energy of Mother Earth. These higher energies will look after the wishes on your  list.

How to make a wish on a New Moon:

Take a piece of paper and draw the Power Symbol Chokurey, at the top in the centre, at the top of each corner and at the bottom in the middle.

Make a list. Make it a simple list. This is your New Moon and a Wish. A new blue car, this is not the time for make and model information. Just the fact the car is new and it is blue.

On the reverse of the paper draw any symbols you are attuned to. If you are a Level One practitioner, you will not be attuned to any symbols. So, draw Chokurey. You are not attuned to this level of symbol, you are recording your contention for the symbol to add Reiki energy to your wishes.

With the finger of one hand, the one you write with. Draw Chokurey on the palm of each hand. Make sure your finger tip touches the palm so you can feel the symbol being drawn.

Place sheet of paper, unfolded between your hands. Close your eyes and visualize the symbols and penetrating the paper and your wishes.

If you have a garden, sprinkle some earth on the paper and seal the paper with the sprinkles in an envelope. As you do so, ask Mother Earth to help the wishes grow into what you have in mind for them.

Energetic Cleansing with a Full Moon

Each morning I start the day with a shower. I love the water running over me, I especially love the temperature of the water at different times of the year, cool in the hot sunny weather, and warmer when it is cold and wintry. I especially love Energetic Cleansing with a Full Moon and Reiki Energy.

After breakfast and before I dress to go out, I sit quietly and meditate mindfully for a few minutes. I slow and close off my busy mind that is planning inextricably for the day ahead, stirring emotions and thoughts about things that may never happen. Planning for all kinds of eventualities that also may never happen. 

I never doubt that during the day I will silently accumulate unwanted, and perhaps dark energies from people and places I spend time in. If I allow them, those unwanted and dark energies will affect my lifestyle.

So, I ask Archangel Michael to be present and to use his sword to cut any energy cords attached to me and to fill me with his bright white light and surround me with his protective shield.

Then, I am ready to get dressed and get out into the world. 

When I come home. I shower again, it is symbolic of washing away the dirt and grime of the day. Yes, office work can be grimy. Grime can be emotional if you are in a place that is unhappy.

Just as I never doubted I would collect unwanted and dark energies from people and places I encounter during the day. I now sit quietly, meditating mindfully. Casting off those energies but also clearing out my mind. The evening is my own, I am not prepared to allow my busy ego mind to side track the enjoyment of the time with people I care about and doing what I enjoy doing.

I ask Archangel Michael to be present and to use his sword to cut any energy cords attached to me and to fill me with his bright white light and surround me with his protective shield. I am determined nothing will be attached to me and sap the emotional energy of my soul.

iCal on my computer is linked to a calendar of phases of the moon. My computer also runs an app with more detailed information about the moon, its phases, and position of the planets and the astrological signs.

As the planets, the Earth and the Moon move around the sky, they influence our souls and energy levels. If you are attuned to Reiki, the sense of energetic change they bring will be surprising at first but familiar as many more full moon cycles repeat. 

The combination of daily spiritual clearing and cleansing in the morning an evening is magnified at the full moon. Not only is the cleansing amplified, shifting our consciousness in order to elevate our frequency bodes well for us if we focus on manifesting a better future for ourselves. This is a conscious decision to use the abundant full moon energy to bring peace, love, and joy to our lives and attain our goals and manifest my dreams.

Use your Reiki sensitivity to channel the full moon energies with awareness and mindfulness.

Each night, before I go to sleep I ask my Archangels to clean and align my Chakras. But at the full moon, when Archangel Michael has cut and destroyed the energy cords that have attached themselves top me during the day, I ask for him to remain, stand guard, and cleanse the space I am in while I work with Reiki energy amplified by the full moon.

If I can be outside and the weather is suitable, I stand with bare feet on the grass. In this way I can connect with Mother Earth which grounds me, the connection stabilizes me as I connect more powerfully with limitless Reiki energy.

In the summer months it is sunny until a lot later and the brightness is greater than the reflected light of the moon. Visualize the full moon, as you ask for your guides and angels to be present as you think about the cleansing rays of light passing over and through your Chakras, your Aura, and through the Reiki energy you are channeling.

This cleansing adds to what you completed earlier.

Take a moment to once more mindfully meditate on the energy and cleansing that is and has taken place. At this moment is not just about your breathing that is helping you to meditate, it is all the cells, and tissues in your body. 

At the end of the session, thank your guides and angels for being present. Walk around, you are still grounded but not rooted to any one spot.

Finally, Thank Archangel Michael for standing guard over the session and get ready to settle down and take it easy, if you can prepare and go directly to bed, that is even better. Do so, knowing you have severed all energy cords and used the power of a Full Moon for a deeper and more powerful energetic clearing.
