Tonight is the full moon {100% full at 06:35am EST Thursday 12th to be exact!} and I am diving back into a practice I used to take part in when I starting out on this creative journey back in 2009!

What is Full Moon Mandala Dreamboard?

Between every New and Full Moon, I would 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. {I will be creating my 2017 Visionboard on the next new moon which takes place weekend of 28th January.}

You can use the power of the full moon to dream bigger, be creative, focus and attract new possibilities into our lives. They are a lot of fun to create too!

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  

My Full Moon Mandala for the Full Wolf Moon

Amid the cold and deep snows of midwinter, the wolf packs howled hungrily outside Indian villages. Thus, the name for January’s full Moon. Sometimes it was also referred to as the Old Moon, or the Moon After Yule. Some called it the Full Snow Moon, but most tribes applied that name to the next Moon.
