Benefits of Meditation During Full Moon

Benefits-of-Meditating-During-Full-Moon

Unleash the Power

Meditation is one of the most beneficial acts during the full moon and one of the potent methods of service to humanity and to mother earth. During meditation basically the mind of the meditator becomes a channel to receive the energies of divine light, love and power and later distribute it to a family, community and further to the whole humanity. The moment of full moon every month therefore, offers greatest opportunities for meditation, not only to cultivate personal benefits but also to take part in the manifestation of the Divine Plan on earth.

Although any time of year is good for meditation and people who are ready and available can tap into the energies of the divine, there are energy cycles that make this easier and more powerful, and full moon is one of them.

“The twelve annual Festivals will constitute a revelation of divinity.”

Alice A. Bailey

The magnifying effects of full moons have long been known and emphasized throughout history, evidences of which can be found in folklore literature as well as many spiritual textbooks.

In fact the moon itself doesn’t have much influence on creating this energetic cycle, “but the fully-lighted orb of the moon indicates a free and unimpeded alignment between our planet and the sun, the solar center, the energy source for all life on Earth. At such times we can make a definite approach to God, the Creator, the center of life and intelligence.”

Therefore full moon has always been a sacred time 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. Because of its magnifying effects on earth and its people, it has been observed by generations that whatever activity is being done during the full moon, will be magnified in effect and intensity. More accidents, more child deliveries and more psychological disturbances are often being reported during full moons. In Buddhism different phases of Lord Buddha’s life and development are all believed to happen in full moon days.

Furthermore because of the moon’s astrological characteristics and effects on mind and emotions, often during the full moon period people tend to get more sensitive and often witness more emotional and relationship problems compared to normal times of the year. That is one of the reasons why insanity is also called lunacy!

One of the means to neutralize such influences during the full moon is therefore practicing meditation and purification.

In fact meditating during full moon has been recommended from long ago, which can help us harness the magnifying effects of the full moon for greater spiritual activities and helping the mother earth.

Besides the calming and uplifting effects of meditation, which can best neutralize the unfavorable effects of the full moon, many other benefits can be cultivated through meditation such as:

001 Benefits of Meditating During Full Moon

Deeper Purification

.

“Meditation has a purifying effect. It strengthens your connection to your Higher Soul.”

Master Choa Kok Sui

Meditation in general helps to activate the crown chakra and bring down greater amounts of divine energy into the system, which even get stronger in the time of the full moons. Divine energy basically has consciousness of its own and therefore gradually flushes out negative thoughts, emotions and energies from the practitioner’s aura and the chakras. The effect is not only improved physical and emotional health, but also clarity of mind, better self-esteem and greater peace and happiness.

Greater Spiritual Experiences

.

In order to have spiritual experiences, first of all the body, mind and emotions should be relatively calm. Therefore it is good to prepare the body and mind before starting the meditation that is normally done by the groups before the full moon meditation begins.

“Preparation for Meditation is as important as the Meditation itself.”

Master Choa Kok Sui

Furthermore spiritual energy is needed to raise the consciousness and develop the ability to fly in the inner world.

“Spiritual energy makes the techniques work.”

Master Choa Kok Sui

During the full moon meditation, especially if the meditation is being done in a group, more divine energies will flow to the practitioners and thereby making it easier to have experiences that might be difficult to have when meditating alone on other times of the year.

Faster Manifestation of Wishes

.

In order to manifest a wish or materialize a plan, we need to stuff it with enough energy. Wish or plan is in fact a thought form created by us that has a shape, clarity and life span. In order to increase its potency and life span we need to stuff the thought form with enough energy.

“Materialization requires energy.”

Master Choa Kok Sui

After the full moon meditation, if the written wish or plan gets energized or blessed by the practitioners individually, or by the group it will turn into a powerful and more long lasting thought form that has greater power to influence the physical world. The result is normally faster manifestation of wishes and plans.

Greater Chance for World Service

.

Full moon is basically one of the opportunities for world service. When people of good will and the will to do good come together and meditate, they become channels to receive and bring down divine energies of light, love and power and pass them on to every person and every being on earth.

When divine energies are directed to humanity and mother earth, especially the people in need and the areas affected by wars and natural and man-made calamities, they can bring about relief, peace and upliftment.

If fact full moon is one of the greatest opportunities of world service that is given to groups of men and women of good will to become active channels to help people in need and help in the manifestation of the Divine Plan.

The Great Invocation is one of the potent prayers that can be recited after the group meditation to further bless the earth.

Spiritual Empowerment

.

“Meditation speeds up the evolutionary process by gradually purifying negative tendencies.”

Master Choa Kok Sui

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. When the body is filled with spiritual energy, the size of the energy channels, also known as meridians or nadis, gets thicker allowing more energy to circulate in a faster rate. Divine energy also cleanses the chakras and activates them. The effect is spiritual empowerment.

“To a large extent, Spiritual Development is Energy.”

Master Choa Kok Sui

Once the size of the energy body and the diameter of the chakras increase, we will get empowered. Chakras basically affect us physically, psychologically and spiritually, as each chakra functions at all these three levels. So when chakras get bigger, you will notice improvement in various parts of life. While a bigger Ajna chakra, manifest as greater will power, a bigger Throat chakra brings about more creativity and a bigger Heart chakra, more love and compassion.

Divine energy also helps to transform and regulate the lower nature.

“Transformation occurs when a greater quantity of Soul Energy descends into the lower chakras and regulate them. Another term for regulating the lower chakras is Self-Mastery.”

Master Choa Kok Sui

Spiritual empowerment is basically more precious and long lasting than ordinary physical achievements that will vanish after dying, and full moon meditation is one of the easiest avenues towards achieving it.

Energy Anchoring

.

Meditation if done in any place, will anchor the divine energies that have been brought down, in that place. Especially if done in a group and during full moon time, when the effects are magnified, through meditation the meditating place will get blessed with positive energies of divine light, love, power, peace, joy and compassion.

Repeated group meditation in any place, tend to anchor lots of divine energies in that place, which in return can attract higher beings and angels to that place.

In fact this is one of the reasons why the function of the sites where temples, churches, synagogues or mosques are built should not be changed afterwards.

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. Divine energy because of its color and quality, have a lot of healing power. When absorbed by the body it brings about greater physical health for the body. Furthermore divine energy increases the immunity and defense mechanism, which help the body fight infection and various diseases in a better and more effective way.

Increased rate of energy circulation in the energy channels and the chakras also appears as more stamina and recharged body.

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.

The Meditation on Twin Hearts is one of the best choices to be conducted in groups during the full moon time, as it is a guided meditation that creates better avenues for the practitioners to become channels of divine light, love and power to flow to the earth and every person and every being residing in it. It is therefore not only elevates the meditators personally, but also make them channels of mercy and peace on earth.
