Harnessing the power of a full moon is something that can be beneficial for everyone — even those who aren't particularly spiritual. Taking the time to perform a ritual during a full moon, which happens about once a month, can help you manifest good energy, reconnect you to yourself and give you some much needed time to reflect on what you'd like to change or attract in your life. Here are 5 great full moon ritual you can try:

Full Moon Bath - Under the full moon, you’ll want to first prepare by cleansing the mind. It’s also believed that epsom salt soaks in the tub can clear your energy field or aura, so this is a great ritual to add into your day. While you are soaking in the tub, put on frequency sounds, a guided meditation or any audio that helps you to relax. You can also add to your experience by lighting candles or incense and adding some of your favorite essential oils or dried flower petals into the tub!

Releasing Ceremony - Spend time alone with your journal to write down all that you are ready to release. Once this list is complete, fold it several times and then find a fire-safe bowl to place your list in. Safely light the edge of your list on fire and watch as all of the things that have been weighing you down start to burn away. After the list has turned to ash, you can bury these ashes outside or flush them down the toilet and (again) say “I release what no longer serves me with love” and allow yourself to leave it behind you.

Bring In New Energy - Cleansing your energy space and living space with sacred smoke is a great way to celebrate the full moon. Using sustainably harvested sage or palo santo is a great way to do this, but you can also use herbs like cedar, mugwort, lavender, sweetgrass, and more. You can also use resins and incenses. While cleansing, make sure you start from the back of your home or room and then go to each corner of your space with an energy that you would like to bring into your newly cleansed home. Calling forth the energy of love, abundance, health, prosperity, joy, peace or anything else that feels aligned for you is best.

Make Moon Water - Moon water is water that has had time to sit under the light of the full moon and soak up some of its power. It can be used for a number of things, from drinking to bathing, and even watering your houseplants. Here's how to make it:

1. Fill a container with water. If you can use fresh rainwater, even better—but any water is okay

2. Place your container in direct moonlight. It doesn't matter whether it's outside on your porch or inside on a windowsill! Anywhere with moonlight will do

3. Say an affirmation or prayer. Think about what you want to use this moon water for, and say an affirmation or prayer over the jar to seal your intention

4. Leave overnight. Once your container is in place and your intention is set, leave the jar overnight in the moonlight. In the morning, your moon water will be good to go

Self-Love Ritual - There's never a bad time to do a self-love ritual, but the night of the full moon is a really great night for one. This can look like virtually anything that makes yourself feel loved, but here's an idea from to get you started.

1. Begin the ritual by doing something to drop into your body, whether stretching, breathwork, or even a full moon bath.

2. Then, choose a cleansing water of your choice (moon water, rose water, Florida water, etc.) and sit in front of a mirror.

3. Wipe the mirror down with your water while holding the intention to clear away any and all illusions stopping you from fully loving yourself, letting yourself be loved, and aligning with love.

4. Sit in front of the mirror and gaze softly at yourself. You can also do some breathwork here, or repeat a mantra of your choice—anything that allows you to connect to your heart.

5. Close out the ritual by thanking yourself, the moon, and the universe for holding you in self-love.
