A forum for all of those open to balancing their Chakras, enhancing their yoga practice and ensuring optimum holistic health

A full moon is bright white or yellow and is often considered a magical time, when all of your emotions, both positive and negative, are usually strengthened.

Tonight, we’ll experience a lunar eclipse, when the three celestial bodies, the earth, sun and moon are roughly in a straight line, turning the bright white moon into an orange, then deep red color as it plunges into the shadow of the earth.

Lunar eclipses were a cause of great fear in the past and, even today, can create a feeling of extremes — excitement and fruition when some of your plans fall into place; disapointment when life falls short of your dreams, according to Moonfruit.com. It is a good time for releasing pent up emotions, and visualizing what you want.

The full moon is said to offer a powerful effect on your meditations and affirmations, helping you to cleanse yourself of negative thoughts and beliefs that no longer serve you. It’s also a great time to cleanse your crystals.

If you want to cleanse and charge up your crystals, take the opportunity to charge them to match your intentions, before you place them on your windowsill or porch. First, rub your crystal lightly between your fingers, then place it on the center of your forehead over your Third Eye Chakra while offering your affirmation. As the full moon is usually associated with the color yellow, and the sun and moon will be aligned for two hours today, let’s look at an affirmation to strengthen our Solar Plexus Chakra, connecting your gut intuition with the intuition offered by your higher knowing through the Third Eye Chakra.

Crystal healing works because the stones interact with your body’s own natural subtle energies. Each crystal holds a vibration, much like chakras hold a vibration of color and energy. Crystals used to heal each chakra usually vibrate with the same color associated with that chakra.



When the Solar Plexus Chakra is balanced, you are confident, with a strong sense of purpose/mission in your life. You are self-directed, self-confident and self-empowered.

    So I am reading that there are negative energies about during a lunar eclipse and it is not a good time to give your crystals a Moonbath? I have already done so………too late!!

    • No worries, this blood moon provided a time of transition – so it’s giving you the opportunity to decide on new directions for your life. For your crystals, I’m sure they were bathed in the white light of the moon prior to and after the actual eclipse, so all is well. Namaste! Becca
