Ritual Basics

Before beginning any ritual, it is important to prepare yourself mentally and physically. You may want to take a cleansing bath, or shower, and meditate or perform some grounding exercises to center yourself. Gather any materials you will need, such as candles, incense, and offerings for the forest spirits.

To make water blessed by the moon, there are several methods you can use.

Series Overview

Here are some methods that we will cover in this series:

  • Simple Outdoor – Place a bowl of water outside on the night of the full moon. Allow the water to absorb the energy of the moon’s rays for several hours, ideally from sunset to sunrise. You can cover the bowl with a lid or a cloth to keep it clean.
  • Windowsill – If you cannot leave the water outside, you can place it on a windowsill where it will be exposed to the moonlight. Again, allow the water to absorb the moon’s energy for several hours.
  • The Active Approach – If you prefer a more active approach, you can hold a container of water in your hands and gaze up at the full moon as you recite a chant or affirmation to focus your intention. Visualize the light of the moon shining down into the water, filling it with energy and power.
  • The Crystal Method (This Article) – Another method is to charge a crystal or a piece of jewelry with the energy of the full moon, and then place it in a container of water. The crystal or jewelry acts as a conduit for the moon’s energy, which is then transferred to the water.
  • You can also use a combination of the above methods. For example, you can place a bowl of water outside with a charged crystal inside and allow it to absorb the moon’s energy for several hours.

The Crystal Method

Blessing water with the energy of the full moon is a powerful practice that has been used by witches and healers for centuries. While the traditional method of placing a bowl of water outside on the night of the full moon is effective, there are other methods you can use to infuse your water with the moon’s energy. One such method is to charge a crystal or a piece of jewelry with the energy of the full moon, and then place it in a container of water.

Tools

  • Jar or other container Preferred: Glass or crystal

Supplies

  • Moonstone,clear quartz, selenite, and amethyst Always research the crystal you plan to use and ensure it is safe for use in water.
  • Water Preferred: From a spring or other natural source

Instructions

  • To begin, choose a crystal or a piece of jewelry that is suitable for charging with the energy of the full moon. Moonstone, clear quartz, selenite, and amethyst are all good choices, as they are known to have powerful connections to the moon’s energy. However, it’s important to note that not all crystals are safe to use in water. Some crystals release toxins into the water, while others can fall apart when submerged. Always research the crystal you plan to use and ensure it is safe for use in water.
  • On the night of the full moon, find a quiet and peaceful place where you can be alone with your thoughts and the moon. Hold the crystal or piece of jewelry in your hands and gaze up at the moon. Visualize the light of the moon shining down onto the crystal or jewelry, filling it with the energy of the moon.
  • Recite a chant or affirmation to focus your intention. You can use a pre-written chant, or you can create your own. Some examples of affirmations or chants you can use include:
    "Moon of power, infuse this crystal with your energy and light. May it be a conduit for your blessings."
    "By the light of the moon, this crystal is charged with your sacred energy. May it bring healing and clarity to my mind, body, and spirit."
    "Moon above, crystal below, bless this water with your sacred glow. May it be a tool for transformation and growth."
  • As you recite your chant or affirmation, focus on your intention for the water. Whether you want to use it for healing, cleansing, or purification, be clear and specific about your goals. Imagine the crystal or jewelry being charged with the energy of the moon and becoming a powerful tool for your spiritual practice.
  • After you have held the crystal or jewelry for several minutes and you have recited your chant or affirmation, place it in a container of fresh water. Make sure the water is safe for consumption if you plan on drinking it or using it in cooking. Leave the crystal or jewelry in the water for several hours, preferably from sunset to sunrise, to allow the moon's energy to infuse into the water.
  • When the water has been blessed with the energy of the full moon, remove the crystal or jewelry and store it in a safe place. Use the water in your rituals and ceremonies or drink it to imbue yourself with the moon's energy. Remember to always be respectful and mindful of the water, and to give thanks to the moon for its blessings.
