New moons are all about new beginnings, new opportunities and Manifesting. It’s a perfect time to set intentions of what we want to manifest and bring into our lives. The dark side of the Moon offers a nurturing environment, like the Earths soil. Setting intentions at this time is like planting seeds into the soil. It is the perfect environment for them to establish roots and as the Moon continues its cycle, these manifestations of your dreams and desires begin to sprout and grow into the light, like the moon. Doing a New Moon Manifesting ritual gives you the opportunity to work with the New Moon energy to bring your desires into reality, nurture your dreams and grow within yourself. Our creative abilities are also heightened at this time. I love working with Moon phases as they are so powerful. If you're interested in working with the New Moon, I have written a New Moon Ritual in the freebies section of our website, that you can take part. You can either use the whole ritual or personalise it for you.
You can work with the New Moon energy the day before, the day of and the day after a New Moon as the energy stays around for these days. Although the energy will be at its strongest on the day. If you do decide to do a Ritual, there are a few things you can do to prepare for your New Moon Ritual. Don't worry if you're not able to do these before, you can still do them on the day, it just simply saves a little time and solidifies your intentions if they are done beforehand.
🌑 Cleanse you home and body with sage, palo santo or an energy and space clearing spray. This helps clear out old energy and make space for the new.
🌑 Think about and write down what you want to manifest. Be very clear with what it is you want to bring into your life. For example, if it’s more money, state an amount, if it’s your soul mate, state exactly what qualities you want in a soul mate. If it's your business, state exactly what it is you want for your business, get creative and specific, have fun but be very clear and do it with intention. Really believe you deserve this. If you have doubts, do some work on any limiting beliefs you may have surrounding the subject. Visualising and writing down what you want in your life helps bring it into the light and helps make your manifestations have a stronger impact.
🌑 Try and stay in good spirits in the couple of days leading up to a New Moon. Focus on the things that make you happy and have gratitude for all the good things you already have in your life. If you find yourself feeling a little down, think abut 3 things that make you really happy. Feel the love and joy In your heart as you think of them and smile. Feel your energy shift to that of gratitude, love and happiness. Take a deep breath in...and out. Releasing all the negative emotions that you were previously feeling.
🌑 Choose a talisman that you can use as an anchor piece for during your ritual and after. This could be a crystal, a small piece of jewellery, a feather, anything that has some meaning to you. You’ll activate this with your energy and intention during your ritual and use it as a visual reminder of your dreams, desires and the things that you are Manifesting into your life.
Writing down and saying these dreams and desires out loud hold power, so make sure you are only writing the things that you truly want.
🌑 Gather some items that you want to use in your ritual. A white candle (tea light candle is best but you can use any size if you don't have a tea light size). This is for purity, cleansing, unconditional love and to solidify your intentions to the Universe. You can also use coloured candles if you have any. Green = Prosperity, Pink = Love, Red = passion, Orange = Creativity. If you don't have coloured candles don't worry, use another white candle and set the intention that it symbolises what you are manifesting.
Crystals in alignment with your desires (again, if you don't have ones that represent what your asking to bring in, you can use any. All crystals have a higher vibration which help in many many situations).
Essential Oils in alignment with your desires (to use in an oil burner or diffuser). If you don't have these, you can just use which oils you do have or substitute them with incense.
New Moons aren't the only time you can manifest. You can manifest at any point in the month. Manifesting on a New Moon just makes your manifestations and intentions more potent as you're working with such a powerful energy. There are also many ways to manifest, so go with what resonates with you the most and remember, intentions are one of the most important things in manifesting, bringing joy, love and abundance into your life, healing and helping others.
Good luck with your New Moon preparations
