To make water blessed by the moon, there are several methods you can use.
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 (This Article) – 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 – 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.
Blessing water with the energy of the moon is a simple yet powerful practice that has been used by many cultures throughout history. Water is a sacred and essential element that has long been associated with purification, healing, and spiritual transformation. By using the energy of the full moon, you can infuse water with powerful energy and create a potent tool for ritual and healing.

- Next, find a windowsill that is directly facing the full moon. If your windows do not face the direction of the moon, you can place the container on a table or other flat surface that is as close to the window as possible. The closer the container is to the window, the more direct exposure it will have to the moon's energy.
- Once you have found a suitable spot for the container, place it on the windowsill and allow it to absorb the moon's energy for several hours. Ideally, the water should be left on the windowsill from sunset to sunrise, but even a few hours of exposure to the moon's rays can be beneficial.
- While the water is absorbing the moon's energy, it is important to set your intention for what you want the water to be used for. Whether you want to use the water for ritual purification, cleansing, or healing, be clear and specific about your intention. You can speak your intention out loud or simply hold it in your mind.
In conclusion, blessing water with the energy of the full moon is a simple and powerful way to create a potent tool for ritual and healing. By setting your intention and allowing the water to absorb the energy of the moon’s rays, you can create a powerful tool that can be used in a variety of ways.
