Full Moon Mandala and Dream Boards

Between every New and Full Moon, I sometimes create my very own Full Moon Mandala or Dream Board.

Dream Boards are similar to Vision Boards, Treasure Maps and Goal Maps. We use these visual “maps” to help us focus on what we want to attract into our life and how we want to feel. Click here for a FREE download about vision boards.

You can use the power of the full moon to dream bigger, be creative, focus and attract new possibilities into our lives.


If you would like me to host a session for you and a group, please get in touch. It is always a fun, relaxed and inspiring evening. I offer a visioning meditation, goal setting advice and ritual to our evening so you leave refreshed and energized for the month ahead.

Sessions can be run anytime between the new and full moon every month.

Moon phases

Every month, the Moon cycles through its phases:
New Moon -> Waxing Moon -> Full Moon-> Waning Moon -> Dark Moon ->

The New Moon is a time to begin new things, to be spontaneous.
We use this time to gather images and words to create our boards

The Full Moon is a time for fulfillment. It is a point of unveiling and revealing.  
We use this time to reveal and share our boards.

Every phase of the Moon creates a certain energy. This energy affects us, and everything on Earth.

Like the moon, we too move through phases and by creating a Full Moon Mandala during the waxing phase of the moon (between the new and full moon), we are using it’s power gather, grown, learn and to reveal our focus for the weeks ahead.

New Moon – New beginnings, fresh starts, optimism, hope and faith,
Waxing Moon
– Building, accomplishments, creativity, strength, growth and learning, positive transformation
Full Moon
– Abundance, harvest, wish-fulfillment, manifesting desires, sexuality, achieving all dreams, protection
Waning Moon
– Letting go, clearing away, cleansing, releasing, shedding old patterns, undoing bindings, opening up problem-knots, making space
Dark Moon
– Rest, Peace, deep wisdom, divination, contacting the guru within, letting things die away completely

Here are just a few of my dreamboards {I have been creating visionboard, dreamboards and full moon mandala’s in some form since 2010}

Creating a Full Moon Mandala /Dream board is a fun creative way to:

• Be more conscious with what you’d like to invite into your life
• Manifest your dreams and goals
• Express creatively and stretch your intuitive right brain.
• Develop a practice to focus on where you are and where you’d like to be.

How to create your full moon mandala/dream board

Your Awesome Year WorkshopPhoto taken by me at the Your Awesome year Workshop – held January 2012 in Australia.

I know what I want to invite:
1. Gather words and images from magazine, pinterest or other sources based on what you would like to invite into your life.

I am not sure what I want to invite:
1. Browse through magazines, doodle, gather from other sources, images and words that resonate with you. Use your intuition and the monthly prompt to help you collect

2. Then, take a large sheet of cardboard, paper or be creative with other materials. {I have used burlap before}
3. Using a compass or template, draw a circle.
4. Lay your images and words in the circle or on a rectangular sheet
5. Similar to creating our yearly vision boards, you can also place a lovely photo of yourself in the center.
6. When you are happy with your composition, glue everything down.
7. Journal, blog and share what this Full Moon Mandala means to you this particular month.

May all your dreams and wishes come to you.
