Some people have asked about how to do the FullMoon meditation for Earth Healing, when you have no experience (or little) of shamanism or healing. I may have written about it before, but not mind doing it again.
It is a relevant question, and thanks for asking. I tend to believe in the net days everybody knows about everything, but one thing is the anonymous plugging in somewhere, another asking directly, and getting the answer from someone you know, or you have some kind of contact with.
I will try to be, as usual, as little dogmatic, as “safe”, and as simple as possible.
There are million ways, of course, and I also believe an atheist can do, providing the interest.
Like for the Sweatlodge, and for other kinds of work, the main thing is the INTENTION (or wish to do some “good”), and some disciplined TIME you OFFER.
We could consider it like the BREATH PROCES, time to breathe in, time to hold a little, time to breathe out, and time to be empty.
GET READY in the way you feel most comfortable, find your good position, face the Moon.
BREATHE IN: use (if you have) any PREPARATION praxis, CLEANSING, and CONNECT to your CENTER (belly, root chakra).
CONNECT to your friends/teachers/trustworthy humans or spirit Beings, and to your own “Godlike essence” (big Mystery, the Unknown, Cosmic Space, Life or ?), and to the God essence outside of you (easier if we think them as two parts, maybe). If you do not know who what to connect to, just ASK FOR HELP.
THANK, and present your INTENTION (who, what would you like to pray for etc.)
BREATHE PAUSE: stay in the MoonLight, let it clean you, charge you, and bless you, be as empty as possible, RECEIVE.
BREATHE OUT: POUR YOUR PRAYERS AND BLESSINGS OUT to who/what you choose to help healing, ONE AT THE TIME: expressing LOUD AND SIMPLE is best, (I ask for Healing for…., I bless the Earth…)
If you got many people/things to pray for, have a LIST you can read, (but “little and strong” is “better” than “much and unfocused”, in my opinion).
You can have the LIST on paper in the MOONLIGHT, and /or BETWEEN YOUR HANDS.
SEND a feeling/thought of LOVE AND COMPASSION, SEND NOT YOUR OWN ENERGY (sending your own Energy may cause your Energy body to diminish/leak, that is one of the reasons we ask for help).
Should you feel very “involved or emotionally touched very deeply” by what/who you pray for it may be better and safer to send blessings: (for example ” I bless you child, and may you heal “, or “I bless whoever and whatever may contribute to Peace on Earth”, or “May the Earth be a peaceful place to be for us all” ).
BREATH PAUSE: CHOOSE A WAY TO END, THANK ALL FOR HELP, RELEASE HELPERS AND YOURSELF FROM DUTY, BACK TO your CENTER (body/belly center, body volume and weight).
STAY AND BREATHE for a while to “land good”, UNTIL YOU FEEL WHOLE AGAIN, feel how you feel, move slowly, and wake up at own rhythm.
… It may sound complicated, and it may need a little time to digest: the first times you may feel akward, but it will pass…
I hope I got you inspired: this is just one way of doing it.
Blessings on you, and thank you for being with at the FullMoon meditation! Both night before and on FullMoon night between 19 and 21, each month. 🙂
