Full Moon Blessing Bowl
A Full Moon Blessing Bowl is a beautiful practice you can cultivate from Full Moon to Full Moon! This is also a wonderful ritual to share with your little ones and family to encourage and nurture gratitude and keep the blessings flowing in your home!
You will need to choose a bowl , jar, or basket, to place on your Moon altar (or if you are sharing this with your family, place in a communal area or on your family altar). Label this “Full Moon Blessing Bowl” and feel free to decorate it and make it pretty!
Now that you have your bowl or basket, now it is time to put it to use! In this Full Moon container, you will begin to put notes about anything that you are happy for, proud of, excited for, or something that you are grateful for throughout your day. Do this at the end of each night after you moon gaze and journal. You can even put pictures or items that remind you of something special that day. It could be a ticket to a movie or show, o r a feather you found on your walk. Anything that moves you.
You can do this activity with your family before bedtime too, or have your little ones create a bowl to keep in their bedroom. Soon your bowl will be filled with gratitude’s and blessings!
To begin the blessings, place a rose quartz stone as your first item in the basket. This stone will represent the love and heart - opening devotion you have committed to yourself. Hold the stone at heart center and say a prayer about what you wish to cultivate through this practice. Kiss the stone and put it in your bowl. Now go charge it under the moonlight!
Do this practice from Full Moon to Full Moon. Each Full Moon place the bowl under the moonlight. You can even transfer your blessings from the last moon cycle into another jar or box. You can go through this box once a year, or once a season, and it will literally feel like a treasure chest! At the end of the year or season, you can burn the notes in your cauldron and the other items you can donate or leave as offerings to the land. This releases the blessings back out into the universe and thus the cycle continues.
