30 Ways To Honour Your Goddess Connection This Full Moon

Posted by on Dec 17, 2013 in Goddess Guidance, Self-Care, Self-Discovery | 11 Comments

When the moon reaches its fullest, we often feel the pull of the sacred feminine. There’s something activated within us, and our goddess connection calls for recognition. There are so many ways that you can honour this inner divinity – this call to embody spirit. Here are a few of my favourites…

1. Turn your face to the moon, and allow your face to be kissed by its light.

2. Dance to the beat of your heart as it pulses its refrain “I’m alive I’m alive I’m alive”.

3. Spiral into the mandala of you.

4. Create a Pinterest board as an altar of your devotion to the sacred calling of your bliss.

5. Watch the flickering flame of a candle and feel the divine spark within you kindle in response.

6. Let yourself be held in the arms of those you love receiving their love for you.

7. Ask your body what it needs to feel nourished and then giving yourself that – generously and without shame.

8. Spend some time shuffling and dealing oracle or tarot cards, seeking the wisdom that exists within.

9. Curling up on the sofa and slip into sleep.

10. Commune with the archetypes of constellations and planet through your astrological chart.

11. Unravel the year ahead. And the year we are leaving behind.

12. Read poetry. Let it unfurl from the page in your heart and in your mind. Let your mouth shape the sounds, and give voice to the language that connects soul to soul.

13. Drop into the gift of your flesh through sacred touch.

14. Journal to the prompt of the lunar cycles.

15. Stand where the edges of the world feel more present to you – the thin places that invite you to reach out and touch the wing of an angel.

16. Allow laughter to moves its way throughout your whole being – feel it bubble up from your belly, warming your chest, opening your throat, leaving you and merging with the world in an explosion of giggles and gufaws, chuckles and cackles.

17. Anoint your pulse points with the scents that stir your blood.

18. Be bathed in music – play it loud and feel your cells respond, rising up to meet the complexity of the melody, the pleasure of the harmony, the invitation of the bass, the urging of the rhythm.

19. Join a circle of kindred spirits. Step forward with your sisters by your side.

20. Give in to luxury. And remind yourself that luxury is not something you deserve, but is as natural and as essential to your wellbeing as the breath in your lungs, the blood in your veins, the clothes on your back.

21. Find your stillpoint and come home to it. Often.

22. Engage in altaring. Collate pieces of yourself – crystals, cards, shells, feathers, photos, poems, candles, plants, love letters, bones, incense…

23. Attend to the light. And to the dark. Honour both in whichever way feels best.

24. Connect to the resonance of words. Goddess-given.

25. Eat chocolate and relish every mouthful. Hold it on your tongue and let it melt. Taste the sweetness. Feel the edge of your desire and the place in your body that sings out in pleasure when that desire is met.

26. Let go and let goddess. Surrender. Give in to the gravity of your body, of the earth. And feel yourself held by the physical container of you.

27. Take a selfie. Hold up your camera and look into the lens. Hold your own gaze as it’s reflected back to you. And take the shot.

28. Restore through yoga. Gentle poses. Restful stretches. Or maybe just savasana.

29. Set intentions in the face of challenges – plant your wishes in the fertile material of your heart, and then trust that everything will unfold in alignment.

30. Feel the whole catastrophe and know that you’re ok. You’re ok. You’re ok.

How are you connecting to the goddess today? Please do share in the comments your experience and your ideas to explore the sacred feminine in each of us….

    Love the full moon and great post.
    I’ll be doing a full moon ritual and working through a few of these for sure.
    The link is below with an overview of the energies that are about at this time. It’s a really potent one and of course more so with all the ‘stuff’ that the silly season can bring up. I’ll be releasing, releasing and bathing in its gorgeous glow.

    It’s a gemini full moon so two sides to every story.

    Thank you Amy xx Happy Happy holidays x Eilish

    as first i read this having just lit a love chakra energy candle on my altar given to me by my sacred sister clarissa earlier that day…upon #5, also my life number, i stared into the flame…watched it dance into my soul longing for dance…at some point slipped into a deep sleep…my insomnia a distant memory. i visit this post often…shared it with my circle of sacred sisters…THIS is the wisdom we should be passing to our daughters, back to our mothers…to each other…and to our divine brothers who might be open to the benefits of these practices for divine life…thank you thank you thank you amy palko.

    An amazing full moon outside my window as I write, in company with Venus sparkling very brightly in the cold clear air – magical.

    I had the strongest pull, or I guess “calling” to the full moon in July, it captivated me completely … and I still really don’t know why or understand. I still feel the pull. I guess that’s how you’d describe it… Since then I have felt it necessary to look into wiccan crafts, I don’t even really know the correct terminology or even understand the urge…. I’ve always felt connected to nature and been empathetic, but I’m a virgo. But never have I had a pull to this extreme. When I was small I had dream premonitions regularly, but I found out the hard way that terrifies people. So I learned to keep that quite and try to deter it. I just feel soo abnormal …. any advice out there? There is NO ONE for me to discuss this with. I live in a small town in the middle of no where…. I don’t know anyone who practices ….. literally!
