Imagine the cycle of the moon as one big breath. During the new moon, we inhale, taking in all we wish to accomplish + the positivity of the unknown. For full moon, we exhale, letting go of negative energies + tying up loose ends. Energy is crazy high during a full moon. This is the time to use that energy + get rid of everything that’s been weighing you down or holding you back.

Set yourself up in an area that brings peace + happiness.

If you have the opportunity, make a small fire outside under the moon. If you can’t make a fire, burning incense or a candle works well, too!

Gather your thoughts + focus on your breath. Dissolve distractions + be completely present with yourself and the world around you. Think about anything that is troubling you ~ a self-limiting belief, negative emotion, bad habit, toxic person, difficult situation, anything. Write it all down!

The more detailed you are, the more you will let go! Read everything you wrote down. Picture what it would feel like for it all to dissolve away into the atmosphere.
Do you feel a euphoric sense of freedom? How would it change your world?

When you feel ready, it’s time to to release. If you built a fire, throw your paper into the pit. If you’re working with a candle, light the corner of your paper on fire + set it in a bowl. Let go of everything holding you back ~ let it burn out of your system. Spend the next few weeks tying up loose ends + preparing for rapid growth + expansion. Start thinking about your next wishes for the New Moon!
