It’s the Full Moon… Let’s make some moonlight water!
When the moon is full in the sky (as it will be tonight), it is the perfect time to set your crystals out under the moonlight to cleanse and recharge them!
If you haven’t ever tried this, it really is one of the most powerful ways to charge up crystals, and if you’re like me you will be able to visibly notice a difference (they’re so much shinier after their moon bath)…
The Full Moon is also the perfect opportunity to make some moonlight water to drink so you can cleanse and charge yourself up too!
What is Full Moon Water?
Moonlight water, or Full Moon Water is essentially just water that you set outside under the light of the Full Moon to “charge”.
You’ll want to be sure that you use spring or purified water so that it’s free from added chemicals or impurities, and you will also want to store your water in a glass container so there is no plastic residue leeching into it!
Once you have purified or spring water in a glass container, just set it outside on the night of the Full Moon! You can find a special place for it if you would like, or place your crystals, incense or herbs around it… The important part is just to get the water outside under the light of the moon. If it’s cloudy, raining outside, or you only have a windowsill to use which doesn’t really get direct moonlight it will still work, just not quite as well. But don’t let that stop you!
How to Make Moonlight Water…
Place your jug or bottle of water outside and as the water sits out under the light of the Full Moon it becomes activated.
I don’t have any clever scientific research to share with you as to how, or why this works… I can just tell you from my personal experience and my intuition that it does!
As the water sits out under the light of the moon it water soaks up the energy of nature along with the light and magic of the Full Moon.
Then, tomorrow morning (or the morning after the Full Moon if you read this a bit after I post it) go outside to gather up your crystals and bring in your Moonlight water.
I usually drink it right away. It feels and tastes amazing, and to me different to from normal water. It's like water awakened, and it's cleansing, spiritually recharging, energizing… And really quite magical!
If you make more than one bottle of Full Moon water, you can use it to water your plants, add a little to your baths, or use it to make an essential oil spray, or make tea with it.
I’ll go out on a limb and say that with the right intention, making and drinking moonlight water can boost your psychic and spiritual abilities, promote healing, and even increase your creativity. After all it’s water, and so it’s impressionable, and your intention is key.
When you set out your water out to sit under the moonlight, place an intention for what you want to create, release, or tune into. Imagine the water absorbing the light and power of nature, of the Divine and of the moon and when you drink it…. Enjoy!
With love and light,
