Magic Moon Manifesting


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:

  • Hope
  • Faith Renewal
  • RenewalRebirth
  • Rebirth

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.

A poem: She let go


I absolutely love this poem which I discovered last year. A year where I did quite a lot of letting go. So, the poem resonated with me on so many levels.

When you’re truly ready to let something or someone go you just know it’s the right time. There’s no questioning or second guessing because you have this inner knowing. An inner knowing that lets you know that whatever happens after you’ve let go will be Divinely perfect, albeit seemingly rough around the edges and a bit chaotic.

Truly letting go is a silent moment. It’s often not planned or pre-meditated. It just happens. Naturally. With least resistance. Mixed in with an element of ease and grace.

Read the poem for yourself and feel free to comment below. With love. Xo

She Let Go

She let go. Without a thought or a word, she let go.

She let go of the fear.  She let go of the judgments.  She let go of the confluence of opinions swarming around her head.  She let go of the committee of indecision within her.  She let go of all the ‘right’ reasons. Wholly and completely, without hesitation or worry, she just let go.

She didn’t ask anyone for advice. She didn’t read a book on how to let go.  She didn’t search the scriptures. She just let go.

She let go of all of the memories that held her back.  She let go of all of the anxiety that kept her from moving forward.  She let go of the planning and all of the calculations about how to do it just right.

She didn’t promise to let go. She didn’t journal about it. She didn’t write the projected date in her Day-Timer. She made no public announcement and put no ad in the paper. She didn’t check the weather report or read her daily horoscope. She just let go.

She didn’t analyze whether she should let go. She didn’t call her friends to discuss the matter. She didn’t do a five-step Spiritual Mind Treatment. She didn’t call the prayer line. She didn’t utter one word. She just let go.

No one was around when it happened. There was no applause or congratulations. No one thanked her or praised her. No one noticed a thing. Like a leaf falling from a tree, she just let go.

There was no effort. There was no struggle. It wasn’t good and it wasn’t bad. It was what it was, and it is just that.

In the space of letting go, she let it all be. A small smile came over her face. A light breeze blew through her. And the sun and the moon shone forevermore.

Resistance before the breakthrough

Now, as we move out of this month I’m finding that many of the people that I’ve been speaking to, including myself, are feeling a big push to let go. So, as we leave one moon cycle it’s the perfect time to do exactly that.

The feeling at the moment is that it’s time to let something go or to push yourself out of your comfort zone. This requires both faith and courage. However, it can also mean that you find yourself coming up against your own resistance.

This resistance might take the form of: Self sabotage, fear of the unknown, a sense of unworthiness or, in my case, being floored by a cold. How it shows up for you is personal to your journey and your soul lesson.

Now when you come up against this resistance you have a choice:

You can surrender it and move through it


You can revert to old ways eg: running away or sabotage

Having chosen the latter many times I know that that shit doesn’t work. Instead, you end up resisting the same issue in another place and at another time. And who’s got time for that?

So, what can you do to support yourself with moving through the resistance, start letting go and enjoying experiencing life’s pleasures?

Get aware of what resistance looks like in your life. What do you do when your resisting? Where does it resonate in your body? Then when you feel the pains of resistance do the total opposite. If you’re someone who gets sick, like me, then you’ve got to make time for yourself. Time to rest and calibrate. Do the exact opposite of what you would be in resistance mode. This is likely to feel counter-intuitive and that’s good.

Because what you actually want to do is feel that very feeling that you’re resisting (love, peace, happiness) and experience the very thing that you’re running from (success, new business/career or love relationship). So, rather than run from it, lean into it and celebrate wherever it happens to occur in your life. This may involve you having to reconnect with the original dream or vision that you had when you set out on this path. In your minds eye making it bigger and brighter than your current resistance vision. How you do this is up to you?  Visualisation. Vision boarding. Writing. Hypnosis. Do whatever works for and resonates with you.

Ultimately, the resistance that you experience is never going to go away because it always precedes a big dream. Therefore, so long as your dreaming and envisioning a bright future you’ll always encounter resistance. Therefore, it’s vital to learn how to move through it with ease and grace. As oppose to running away from it or covering it up with meditations, crystals or mantras. None of this will have any holding power unless you are honest with yourself about what you are resisting and how this resistance shows up in your life.

Resistance is your call to let go of what’s not serving you. A call to get real and honest with yourself about the ways in which you are holding yourself back. It’s your chance to break out of your comfort zone and experience that dream/vision that lies on the other side.

Later on Instagram I am sharing a Resistance Meditation. It will help you to identify where resistance lies in your body, so that you can use this to identify the chakra or area of your life that you need to work on right now.

Sometimes you just have to get out of your own way. Stop asking when. Stop wondering if. Just relax and choose to believe that all that you desire will manifest. In fact,  it’s more likely that something or someone better, more remarkable and amazing than you had envisioned is on its way.

Worry, they say, is the prayer to chaos and who wants more chaos in their life? Certainly, not me. Use your energy and imagination in a more productive way.  Use your energy to get clear on what you want and take action towards those goals. Use your imagination to visualise what you want.

Easier said than done? Practise regularly until it becomes a habit.

Worry. Asking for when.  Wondering if. None of it makes your dreams and desired outcomes or feelings happen any faster. So, relax.

With love xoxo
