What to do during a full moon
Tonight is the full moon of May. If it’s not cloudy or raining where you live, the moon should be bright and beautiful. We always talk about the full moon, and it’s pull and influence, but never about what you should do. Many of you will find yourselves instinctively pulled to do one thing or another, but if you’re not, here are a couple of suggestions on what to do. There are of course many things that you can opt to do during a full moon, but most will generally fall into one of two categories, depending on what your personal struggles are – internal or external (physical).
So, what do you do during a full moon?
Release your energy – The full moon is a good night to release yourself of your normal inhibitions – release your energy. Sometimes however, this is hard to do. One of the easiest ways to release your pent up energy is to run. And when I say run, I mean, take a few minutes to yourself, take some deep breaths, stretch, and then start running. You don’t have to go anywhere with a purpose, just run. Let your energy flow through you, and expend that energy during your run. Run until you’re tired. Don’t run with a purpose. Just run for the enjoyment of it. A release of your pent up energy will feel especially good on a full moon night.
The other choice you have of things to do during a full moon is to just relax. The full moon can be a powerful influencer. You might find yourself compelled to feel certain ways, and you might find yourself wanting to resist these feelings. You might find that these internal struggles simply do not leave you with much physical energy to release. Instead of fighting with this, and trying to figure out what it is you should do, why not try to do the simplest thing of all? Relax. One of the easiest ways to relax is by reading. Pick up something that interests you that you haven’t had time to get to in a while and read. As you read, involve yourself in the story, and forget about your day to day life. As you become involved in what you’re reading you’ll find your muscles relaxing and your mind refreshing. You’ll find when you’re done with your book or story that you’ll be better able to deal with who and what you are. You’ll be better able to understand what you’re feeling and how to handle those feelings.
