2012 is a powerful time for clearing, healing and accelerated growth. It also provides a unique opportunity to clear and heal our ancestral lines, allowing future generations to be free of accumulated of inherited limitations. (This works even if you have no children of your own.)
One way we can work with this energy is to use ceremony on August 31st to coincide with the Blue Moon, and again on September 1 to mark the first day of Spring or Fall, and the beginning of the waning moon’s energetic gifts to us.
I’ll discuss the Blue Moon Healing Ceremony today, and the Full Moon Becoming Ceremony tomorrow.
What You’ll Need:
- A small tumbled crystal or stone to represent yourself
- A small tumbled crystal or stone to represent your birth mother
- A small tumbled crystal or stone to represent your birth father
- If you have been raised by anyone else, and you consider this person a parent to you – such as through adoption, fostering or a parent’s remarriage or life partner, choose a stone or crystal to represent them too
- A bowl made of anything but metal or plastic, large enough to hold your crystals so that they can be covered with water
What you need to do:
On August 31, allow yourself the gift of time for the energy of the Blue Moon. Ideally set aside a minimum of fifteen minutes, but for those of you who enjoy meditation and reflection allow up to one hour.
If the weather permits, do this healing ceremony outside, once the moon has risen. Do not consume alcohol or recreational drugs prior to this process. If the weather or your situation doesn’t permit working outside, you can work beside a window that allows you to see the moon and feel her energy. Alternately, you can do the first part of the ceremony inside, and then take your crystals out into the moonlight, or place them on a window sill where they will be bathed in moonlight.
Fill your bowl with water, and place it where you will work. Have your crystals ready too.
Sit or stand quietly and raise your hands above your head. Draw the light of the moon down around you like a cape, wrapping it around your body. Then allow the light to fill you up, feeling your body becoming relaxed and peaceful. Say:
I honour You, and I am grateful for everything.
Take the crystal that represents yourself. Hold it in both hands. Let all of the pain from your body, mind and spirit drain into the crystal. You can also visualise specific situations or conditions that you wish to release. Place them into the crystal too. Say:
I offer up my pain. I release all attachment to the notion of guilt, punishment and karma. I forgive myself on all levels across all lifetimes.
When you are ready place the crystal into the bowl beside you.
For your Maternal Line:
Take the crystal that represents your biological mother. Hold it in both hands. Visualise her face, or feel an emotional and heart connection to her. Then through your mother, feel your connection into her parents, and their parents. Let yourself feel that connection into your maternal ancestral line, as far back as feels right for you. Let all of the pain from your body, mind and spirit drain into the crystal. You can also visualise specific situations or conditions that you wish to release. Place them into the crystal too. Say:
On behalf of my maternal line, I offer up this pain. I release all attachment to the notion of ancestral guilt, punishment and karma. I forgive my ancestors on all levels across all lifetimes.
This process may bring up many powerful emotions for you. Stay with them and place all of that energy into your crystal. When you are ready place the crystal into the bowl beside you.
For your Paternal Line:
Take the crystal that represents your biological father. Hold it in both hands. Visualise his face, or feel an emotional and heart connection to him. Then through your father, feel your connection into his parents, and their parents. Let yourself feel that connection into your paternal ancestral line, as far back as feels right for you. Let all of the pain from your body, mind and spirit drain into the crystal. You can also visualise specific situations or conditions that you wish to release. Place them into the crystal too. Say:
On behalf of my paternal line, I offer up this pain. I release all attachment to the notion of ancestral guilt, punishment and karma. I forgive my ancestors on all levels across all lifetimes.
This process may also bring up many powerful emotions for you. Stay with them and place all of that energy into your crystal. When you are ready place the crystal into the bowl beside you.
Repeat this process for any remaining crystals to heal the energies of other people’s lines who have become connected to yours.
Sit or stand quietly with your arms raised to the moon. Allow yourself to release any remaining residual energies directly to her. Let your body fill with light and the moon’s gentle energy.
Say these words:
Thank you, Sister Moon. Thank you, Mother Earth. Thank you, Father Sky. I honour you and my connection to you, now and throughout time. I am ready to claim my Path.
Feel the many times you have walked upon this earth, with your feet on the ground; the sky with the moon and the clouds and the stars above you.
Leave the bowl with the crystals out in the moonlight, and then the sunlight so that they work with this energy for a full twenty-four hours.
24 hours after the placement of your crystals drain off the water and let it return to the Earth. Leave your crystals on the ground, or in a potplant for a further 24 hours for them to recharge.
♥ Much Love to you, dear Lightworkers,
