Today is the full Harvest Moon, and a great time for release. Our emotions can be heightened and it is also a perfect time to forgive.
When we forgive we are releasing what doesn’t serve us any longer to make room for what we do want more of in our life. We release toxic emotions such as guilt, shame, anger, resentment, bitterness, hatred, and judgment, just to name a few. We can then replace them with what we want to feel, such as, love, joy, happiness, abundance, success, peace and gratitude.
I am part of a prayer group where we learn how to write affirmative prayers. Praying is like manifesting or as our group leader likes to phrase it as out-picturing. We co-create with our higher power which we can call God, Universe, Spirit, Buddha, Allah, Bob…you get what I mean. It’s a higher power energy that is within YOU too!
Many think their higher power is outside of them, it is not! It is within you and you create your reality with the words you say and think, the actions you take and the limiting beliefs you hold on to.
I would like to share my prayer with you around forgiveness, feel free to use it for yourself or change it to reflect you. I use God as my higher power and you can replace the name with whatever you call your higher power.
I read my affirmative prayers each morning and it’s my way of setting my intentions for the day of who I am and what I want to create. Affirmative prayers are always written in the present tense.
My Forgiveness Prayer
There is only one source I call God. God is all that is and therefore God is within me. What is true for God is true for me. Today I am willing to forgive myself for feeling not enough, and not worthy of being a divine expression of God.
In forgiving and accepting myself as who I truly am I feel unconditional love, support, abundance and personal power. I fully step into who I am and use my gifts and talents to help guide others to their truths too.
I am in gratitude today for this deep sense of knowing I am fully supported in all ways whether I can see it or not. Thank you to God and to myself for the ease, joy, and abundance in my life. I am free to be me! I release all which does not serve me to God knowing my true nature is my reality.
Here’s the same prayer with space for you to customize what you want to add to your affirmative prayer.

Don’t kid yourself, the power of prayer can change your life in unlimited ways and by no means is it only for full moon time, it’s most powerful when practiced daily.
We can pray whatever way we want so get creative! You can write and read out loud, sing, dance, colour, whatever way inspires you. Your higher power hears you and remember…. all you have to do is set your intentions, ask for what you want and take the inspired action when the opportunity to do so comes your way.
Warning: the opportunity to get closer to what you want might make you feel uncomfortable but we don’t grow unless we are uncomfortable so take the risk and trust your higher power, even if it’s baby action steps. As long as you are moving towards what you want it is yours for the receiving!
Happy full moon releasing.
