The Magic Of The New Moon
The New Moon is magical to me. I love connecting with the powerful energies it brings forth as I take the opportunity to set new goals or renew past goals, and connect to the powerful energies that flow within me, and around me. I like to perform a New Moon Ritual, which I share with you here.
New Moon Significance
Sun and Moon
When the Moon is new, the Luminaries -- the Sun and Moon -- are aligned in the same Zodiac sign. That makes it a charged time with concentrated energies of that sign. A New Moon is a symbolic point of attention, and a symbolic portal for new beginnings.
New Moon Intentions
A New Moon is the perfect time to set new goals and intentions and to be clear about the visions you hold and wish to manifest into your reality. In the New Moon's energies, you can be open to receiving and allowing spirit to bring you any messages you may need at this time; it's important to be still and listen. When we are still and silent, we can better tap into the messages from the Universe, and from our own intuition as well.
New Moon Ritual
Prepare a space for your New Moon Ritual, preferably a place where you won't be distracted or disturbed. Cleanse and clear the space with sage or essential oils, and bring in any crystals or sacred pieces you would like to have present during your ritual. If possible, place the crystals/stones on a window ledge and allow the New Moon energy to cleanse them during your ritual. Light candles and or incense if you wish, as it can add a peaceful energy to the space. Be mindful of leaving your candles lit and be sure to blow them out!
Get yourself grounded and calm as you tap into the New Moon's energy. Breathe in its clear, powerful and abundant energy and breathe out any self doubt and negativity you may be holding. Review and reflect on your future goals and intentions or if you would like to renew old goals, envision those as well and see them in your mind as if they have already come to fruition. After you have spent time reflecting, write them down in a journal or note pad.
Also write down the intentions and actions you plan to take in the manifestation of your goals and dreams as well as the Why. Your Why is the reason you want these particular dreams and goals to manifest, and if your Why isn't clear and precise, it will be reflected in the outcome. And remember, we co-create our reality with the Universe, think of it as team work. It's never just a matter of stating what you want and then not taking action, it's about taking part and full responsibility in achieving all that you desire, and the Universe will always be there to support you!
New Moon Reflection
The New Moon energy is also a wonderful opportunity to empower yourself. To release any self doubt you have been harboring within. It is a time to let go of all that is holding you back and it's a time to step into the power of who you really are. A beautiful, brilliant and bold soul who is ready and willing to stand in your own light and embrace all that you are.
See yourself standing tall and confident in a serene field of flowers with the warm sunlight pouring onto your shoulders. Feel how it would feel to love and accept all that you are without worry of what others may think. Understand that you are a unique being and there never has, nor will there ever be, another You. With the New Moon, you can tap into the New You.
After your New Moon Ceremony, express your gratitude to the Moon's energy and be thankful for bringing to you all that you need in order to turn your dreams into physical reality.
“In order to live a healthy, happy and prosperous life, and fulfill the reason we are each here – our mission and purpose – we must return to our natural state of being, centered in and identified with spirit.”
