Today is a new moon. An optimal time to connect with the magical energy of Mother Moon and manifest your heart’s desires.
The energy of a new moon brings with it:
- Faith Renewal
Yet it also brings with it a stark reminder to be honest about what you don’t want and what you need to let go of. After all, when you let go of what you don’t need you inadvertently create space. A space that can be filled with something or someone that feels good, whilst being more in alignment with your heart’s true desires.
My New Moon Practices
There are a fair few new moon practices out there. Just tap in ‘New Moon rituals’ into Google and I’m sure you’ll find many a guide or E-book to choose from. Yet, I’m going to share with you the rituals and practices that I will be using on the new moon. Practices and rituals that I’ve been using, as well as tweaking for years. So, if you’re ready, let’s do some new moon manifesting together.
F*** You Letter
Sometimes the moon energy can leave you feeling sad, angry or emotional. If that’s the case then I find it helps to get those feelings out and onto paper. You can do this in your journal or as a ‘F*** You Letter’. The key is to not hold back or think about what you are writing. Allow the feelings to rise to the surface, really sit with them and let them out. Within this you may get some clarity or ‘a-ha’ moments that makes you realise what you need to truly address or let go of in order to manifest your desires into reality.
After writing the letter I will either burn it or shred it. Why? Because it’s old energy that you want to let go of. You don’t want to hold onto that energy, so by burning or shredding it you’re symbolically letting it go.
Clear Your Space
This is optional, yet I sometimes feel that when I’ve been in environments or around people with heavy, dark energy I have to clear the vibes. After all, you don’t want to carry the heavy energy into your new moon cycle and manifestations.
There are many ways to do this, including prayer, visualisation, Reiki, Himalayan salt bath or smudging. Although I often use a combination of these my preferred method is smudging with Sage or Palo Santo.
Intentions and desires
Now it is time to consider what it is that you want to attract into your life. At this point I find that the clearer you are the better. If you are vague with your intentions and desires, then vague is what you’ll attract. The method that I will be using tonight to set my own desires will be to write them out in my journal as a letter to God (substitute for the Universe, Angels or whoever you believe in), doing so as if they have already been received. For example, Thank you for my new relationship with the man of my dreams. He is (insert the qualities that you are looking for). I feel (insert how you will feel when you receive this/in the relationship, eg: loved, contented, expansive).
The idea with this is to really connect to the feeling of this dream of yours being your current reality. So, you may want to spend some time visualising it all or dedicate time to reading over your letter in the coming days. How often you do so is entirely up to you, so do whatever feels right for you.
Finally, it’s important to take time to rest and invest in some self-care at this time. I sometimes feel that the energy can be a little intense or overwhelming, especially when you are on the cusp of making big changes in your life. Therefore, be gentle on yourself and be honest with yourself about how you feel, as well as what you need in the moment. Ultimately, believe that anything is possible and you are worthy of your dreams.
Happy New Moon and God Bless.
