Do you know that meditation is one of the most beneficial acts when it is done during the full moon as it is one of the powerful methods of service to humanity and mother earth? During meditation, our minds become a channel to receive energies of the divine light, love and power where they are later distributed to a family, community and further to the whole of humanity.
And during the moment of the full moon each month, it offers the greatest opportunities for meditation by not only to cultivate personal benefits but also to take part in the manifestation of the Divine Plan on earth. While any time of the year is good for meditation and people who are ready and available may tap into the energies of the divine, there also exists energy cycles that make this easier and more powerful – and one of these instances is during a full moon.
That said, full moons have magnifying effects and have been known throughout history where evidence can be found in folklore literature as well as many spiritual textbooks. However, the moon itself does not have much influence on creating the energetic circle, but the fully-lighted orb of the moon indicates a free and unimpeded alignment of the earth and the sun, the solar centre, the energy source for all life on earth. And at such times, it is when we can make a definite approach to God, the Creator, the Universe, the centre of life and intelligence.
Hence, full moons are known to be sacred times for spiritual practices in many ancient religions and cultures. In fact, it is believed that full moon is both a time of crisis and a time of opportunity. And because of the amplifying effects on earth and its people, it has been observed by generation that whatever activity is being done during the full moon will be enhanced in effect and intensity.
Moreover because of the moon’s astrological characteristics and effects on mind and emotions, often during the full moon period, people may get more sensitive and often witness more emotional and relationship issues as compared to non-full moon period of the year. This may be one of the reasons why insanity is also called lunacy.
That said, one of the means to nullify such effects during the full moon is by practicing meditation and purification. At the same time, meditating during the full moon has been recommended from long time ago where it can help us harness the amplifying effects of the full moon for greater spiritual activities and helping the earth.
