I spent most of the day of the recent Full Moon, in water. When I say water, I mean the beach. It was the perfect opportunity to knock out two birds with one stone; treat my kids to some Summertime fun before the start of school and submerge myself in a mass body of water during the span of the Full Moon.  I was a beach bum during the day, however, I could feel my energy shift while in the water….something I’ve been planning to do outside of my usual full moon ritual.


Up until that day, I worked on transmuting a lot of negative energy I carried into positive energy. Part of my spiritual growth is no longer focusing on what I don’t have, or utilizing the words, “I can’t”. I’ve come to realize that I’ve spent so much energy on what was going wrong in my life, that I was becoming exhausted. Therefore, since our bodies are made of 7o% water, and the ocean’s tide is controlled by the moon (read more on that here), I decided to frolic in the waters to help cleanse myself from the lingering negative energy that I’ve fostered over time since the last full moon.


My initial plan was to come home from the beach and continue with my cleansing doing my usual ritual, but instead, I went to bed. The next morning, I woke up and got ready for the workday, only to feel much more physically and emotionally sluggish by the hour. While at the 9 to 5, I experienced physical imbalances that forced me to leave work early. I headed home, boiled some water with pieces of raw ginger root, honey, and lemon, and took a nap which extended to the next day.

I slept for 15 hours.

When I woke up, I felt like a brand new person and totally rejuvenated. My physical energy increased, my enthusiasm for the future heightened, and as of now, I have no qualms or worries about what I can’t change or control in my life. I am free of the negative energy that I’ve carried with me for a while, and as a result, I leave room for manifestations that will serve me.


I was one with the sun and the moon that day on the beach. Blockages were definitely lifted and allowed me to see and speak with more clarity about where I am in my present life. I’m accepting, I’m learning, I’m loving, and I’m nurturing me…mind, body, and spirit.

Sometimes, we have to experience the worse before we can experience the best. I feel like the best has finally arrived. I feel it, I see it, I created the best that’s designed just for me with intentions set and messages sent to the universe.

Cleansing in the ocean was definitely needed. As I slept, my mind, body, and spirit went through a period of much-needed recalibration. I realize that my desires could never be manifested as long as I carried the weight of the negative energy that was holding m down spiritually.

During my time at the beach, I not only cleansed…I spent some time in the sand grounding, centering, and meditating. It was all so exhilarating.

I feel that my cleansing at the beach during the full moon has helped me because, despite my current personal setback, I am still able to move forward with positive thinking. I got this…God’s got me…the universe has my back….my ancestors are looking out for me.


If you ever get a chance to spiritually cleanse at the beach during the Full Moon…DO IT. It may change your life.
