Estimated reading time: 4 minutes

The Flower Moon, also known as the Corn Planting Moon, is a magical and potent lunar event during spring. As we enter this period of renewal and growth, it’s the perfect time to explore the ancient practice of breathwork and rituals to harness the energy of the Flower Moon. 

The Meaning of the Flower Moon

The Flower Moon gets its name from the abundance of vibrant blossoms that grace the landscape during this time of year. It typically occurs in May, when nature comes alive with colourful flowers and lush greenery. This moon phase symbolises fertility, growth, and renewal, making it an ideal moment to set intentions and embrace positive change in our lives.

Historically, various indigenous cultures in North America named each full moon based on the natural events that occurred during that time. The Flower Moon was a reminder of the need to plant crops, tend to gardens, and celebrate the arrival of warmer weather. It was a time of hope and anticipation as communities looked forward to the abundance of the forthcoming harvest.

Breathwork: A Gateway to Connection

Breathwork is an ancient practice involving conscious control and breath regulation. It has been used for centuries in cultures worldwide to achieve heightened states of consciousness, connect with one’s inner self, and promote healing. When combined with the energies of the Flower Moon, breathwork can be a powerful tool for transformation and self-discovery.

Here’s a simple Flower Moon breathwork exercise you can try:

  1. Find a quiet and comfortable space where you won’t be disturbed.
  2. Sit or lie down in a relaxed position, closing your eyes.
  3. Take a few deep breaths to centre yourself.
  4. Inhale deeply through your nose, counting to four.
  5. Hold your breath for a count of four.
  6. Exhale slowly and thoroughly through your mouth, counting to four.
  7. Repeat this cycle for several minutes, focusing on your breath and the intention of embracing growth and renewal during the Flower Moon.

Rituals to Embrace the Flower Moon

Rituals can deepen your connection with the lunar energies and help you manifest your intentions. Here are some Flower Moon rituals to consider:

  1. Flower Meditation: Spend time meditating among the blossoms in a garden or natural setting. As you breathe deeply, visualise the flowers representing your goals and dreams coming to fruition.
  2. Create a Flower Altar: Arrange fresh flowers, light candles on an altar, and place meaningful objects upon it. Use this sacred space to set your intentions and express gratitude for the abundance of the Flower Moon.
  3. Release and Renew: Write down on a piece of paper anything you wish to release or let go of. Burn it in a safe and controlled manner, symbolising the clearing of obstacles. Then, write down your intentions for growth and renewal and keep them where you can revisit them throughout the lunar cycle.
