What's the biggest Moon manifesting mistake that magical women make? by Yasmin Boland
One of the biggest barriers to Moon manifesting your dreams is not believing in your ability to consciously create your life. The fact is that you NEED to believe in your own magic. We are all magical. We were born this way. In fact, we came to planet Earth to learn about this sort of sacred superpower that we all possess. So the biggest mistake that magical women make when they're Moon manifesting is slipping into self-doubt. Overcome this self-doubt by taking baby steps on your Moon manifesting journey. Start by creating things you can believe in. And start it now!
One of the reasons why the Moon is so good to work with when you're manifesting is that the Moon is all about feelings. So if you have doubts in yourself because of something which happened in your past, you can actually work with the Moon to release this. As you might know, the New Moon is the time to set intentions and the Full Moon is the time to surrender and forgive. So if you have something in your past which is a regret or which you know is holding you back, wait for the next Full Moon and then decide to release it.
The easiest way to do that is to write down whatever happened, on the night of the Full Moon. Light some candles, put on some beautiful, spiritual music and put some oils in the diffuser so it's a cosmic experience. And then just write. Write and write and write about what happened so as long as you can, in as much detail as you can bear – you are expressing it – get it? Expressing it means getting it out of your system. Keep writing and writing and writing until you can't write anymore. Keep writing until you can start to see the lighter side of what happened, hopefully. (Of course there are some things which have no lighter side but most situations do).
And then? Burn what you have written. Stand over the kitchen sink or go outside and burn it under the Full Moon. There is a kind of alchemical magic which happens when you burn something like this. You literally, physically transform it. It goes from being paper and ink to smoke and ashes. It's changed and so are you.
And then recite the Full Moon formula for forgiveness from my book Moonology. It's based on the world of philosopher Catherine Ponder and super powerful. Read it out loud, with feeling: ‘Under the glorious Full Moon, I forgive everything, everyone, every experience, every memory of the past or present that needs forgiveness. I forgive positively everyone. I also forgive myself of past mistakes. The Universe is love, and I am forgiven and governed by love alone. Love is now adjusting my life. Realizing this, I abide in peace.’
You may wish to add: ‘I bring love and healing to all my thoughts, beliefs and relationships. I learn my lessons and move on. I call on my soul fragments to be cleansed by the Full Moon and I call on them to rejoin me. I send love to myself and everyone I know, and everyone who knows me, in all directions of time. Under this glorious Full Moon, I am healed. My life is healed. And so it is. So be it.”
