Full moon meditation is a powerful meditative practice which enhances the actual effects of meditation. Basically, during meditation the mind of the meditator becomes a channel to receive the energies of divine light, love and power. Although any time of the year is good for meditation, the energy cycles during Full moon make the meditation process more easier and powerful.
Full moon has always been a sacred time for spiritual practices in many ancient religions and cultures for its magnifying effects on earth and its people. Besides the calming and uplifting effects of meditation, many other benefits can be obtained through Full moon meditation, such as:
Deeper Purification – It has been observed that the waxing and waning of the Moon has a direct impact on the human mind and emotions. Often during the full moon period, people tend to get more sensitive and witness more emotional and relationship problems compared to normal times of the year. One of the means to neutralize such influences during the full moon is therefore practicing meditation and purification. Meditation in general helps to activate the crown chakra and bring down greater amounts of divine energy into the system, which is believed to be stronger during the full moon period. The effect is, not only improved physical and emotional health, but also clarity of mind, better self-esteem and greater peace and happiness. Especially, if the full moon meditation is done in a group, more divine energies will flow to the practitioners making it easier to have experiences that might be difficult to have, if done alone and during other times of the year.
Energy Anchoring- Meditation done in any place, is said to anchor the divine energies that have been brought down, in that place. Especially Full Moon meditation if done in a group can even create a far greater effect as the group’s synergy can bring down more divine energy compared to an individual practice. More so, when it is done under a Pyramid structure, as is the case at Yogavijnana which has a pyramid shaped roof to facilitate the same. Repeated group meditation tends to anchor lots of divine energies in that place, which helps in the total wellbeing of the person.
Spiritual Empowerment – During the full moon, lots of divine energies enter the body through the spiritual cord, which acts as a communication channel between the person and the divine. Full moon meditation is one of the easiest avenues towards achieving it.
Recharged Body – Divine energy when received by the practitioner, will get absorbed by the energy body and the chakras, transforming their quality and improving their functions and brings about greater physical health for the body. Furthermore, it increases the immunity and defence mechanism, which help the body fight infection and various diseases in a better and more effective way, thereby providing more stamina and a recharged body.
