We are in a new moon phase right now! Did you know that the lunar cycle is every 28 days. It’s a time of new energy and possibility. By working alongside the energy of the new moon and setting your intentions, you have the support of the universe too. It’s a perfect time for self-reflection and clear, concise and specific intention or goal setting. The new moon is said to be the most fertile day, so you can use this time to learn or start something new. Use the new moon energy to enhance visualisations and affirmations.
Lighting a candle on this, the darkest night of the month, supports our desire to bring more light into our lives.
Try holding the candle in your hands and tune in to feelings of gratitude and love. Set clear intentions, and ask the universe for what it is you desire.
You can take this further as a new moon ritual each month. Set out an area for you to meditate, manifest, express gratitude. Perhaps take a cleansing bath or do some self reiki. Smudge your space with cleansing spray or white sage.
A new moon is a good time for ‘firsts’ of any kind. Planting seeds, a first date, manifesting or making a list!
If you like to work with Law of Attraction, a new moon is a perfect time to be very specific about the details of what it is you want to attract. Close your eyes, picture it, notice every detail of it, create an image in your mind then feel it. Feel the emotions, how does it make you feel? Excited? Calm? Peaceful? Happy? Confident?.... Stay focussed on what is meaningful to you.
Other things to be aware of during a new moon...
Stay away from anything toxic. That might be substances or relationships.
Do be open to any new ideas during this phase.
Don't avoid meeting new people at this time.
Don't give up on something you care about at this time.
