Healing is a journey and chances are completion won’t happen overnight. When we heal, we first must uncover and identify an untruth that is causing dis ease in our body. But that’s not all. Once we discover that untruth we must deconstruct it and replace it with a belief that is life affirming to us. Rituals for healing can help us to do that.
If you’ve ever tried to incorporate a new habit, you know that repetition is often necessary before something sets in and sticks.The same is true when it comes to healing. It takes time to incorporate new beliefs that integrate so into your essence that the healing process can’t help but move forward. But the good news is you don’t have to be finished healing to enjoy the improvements to your life that come when you commit to healing. You will just keep feeling better and noticing positive synchronicities in your life.
The more intent you are on healing the better, and one way to set an intention is through rituals. When we do rituals for healing, we focus our energy on our intentions and associate those intentions with an action. For example, I might light a candle and set an intention, telling the Universe that as the candle burns, my intention is making its way through the Universe into reality.
Rituals that last multiple days are even better because they allow you to focus your energy on your intention repetitively. How powerful is that!
Full and new moon healing rituals
While you can do a ritual anytime, rituals can be particularly powerful when you associate them with astrological events.
On the days in which there is new moon energy, I conduct rituals designed to attract a new state of being in my life. The new moon would be a great time to do a ritual designed to enhance or improve one’s health. (Of course, this is no substitution for seeing your doctor. In fact, see your doctor and conduct the new moon ritual.)
On the days in which there is full moon energy, I conduct rituals designed to get rid of things in my life. If I have an illness or toxins in my body, this would be a good time to visualize those toxins leaving my body and leaving me healthier.
Here’s a caveat: try to avoid doing healing rituals when the moon is void of course. This occurs when the moon is leaving one sign and getting ready to go into another. Anything you do during a void of course moon is likely to be incomplete or it may have to be repeated.
