New Moon Rituals-Do These Every Month and Watch What Happens

I am so deeply in love with the full moon and the new moon. Honestly, I’m like a kid at Christmas time waiting for Santa’s arrival.These moons are a time of so much growth, hope, possibilities and surprise opportunities. They are also a time for reflection, my favourite part, to see what’s working and what’s not. What your next move should be and where you need to focus more. Also, the biggest one, what to let go of. This is where new moon rituals come in to play.

Do you feel the energy?

I’m really sensitive to energies, all energies, and while not many are, some of you may discover that during the new moon and full moon time, you feel slightly different. You may be super emotional or super pissed off. You may feel pensive or you may feel fully charged and ready to dominate the world.

Whatever the case may be, there are energies during this time and if you don’t pay attention to them, you may not handle them correctly. If your energy is angry and resilient, it is definitely a time for you to practice more patience, not lash out. (honestly, you can only blame so much on pms!)

It’s always helpful to do a little reading up on things like this so that you learn how to work with the energies, instead of against them. I try to spend at least a couple of hours a week chilling with Kindle, reading, learning and growing.

New moon rituals

So it should come as no surprise that I’m a new moon rituals kinda gal. I don’t even set my clock or an alarm. I know exactly what day the new moon falls on weeks before it gets here and wait in anticipation for it. This goes for the full moon too! (I’ll be blogging about my full moon rituals as well)

Now before we get into this ritual thing there is one thing you absolutely positively need to know. I can’t tell you how many times someone has referred to it as woo woo or witchcraft. Don’t be ridiculous. Do you think your vision board or mind map is woo woo or witchcraft? Of course you don’t. But it’s still a manifestation technique. A ritual you perform to bring about goodness in your life, yes?

There are a few definitions of ritual and while many do make reference to religion, this definition says it best:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ritual

Nowhere in there does it say witchcraft, woo woo or religion. See? We’re good to go! Let’s get started on our new moon rituals.

Let’s begin.

The night of the new moon, find a relaxing quiet place, away from distractions. Turn off your phone, noisy notifications on other devices, etc. You only need about half an hour to an hour (or really however long you are comfortable to meditate, write and zen out)

  1. Turn on some soft light meditative music (I find lots of great tracks on YouTube) get your favourite journalling book or a nice clean notepad and your favourite pen. You could always do this on your iPad/Phone or computer but I find it’s better without electronics and to do it the old fashioned way.
  2. Light some candles, scented or not, and/or some of your essential oils in a warmer.
  3. Sit quietly and meditate for about 10-15 minutes, calming yourself and getting into manifestation mode.
  4. When you’re done, write out 5-10 wishes you would like to manifest in the next month. Make it realistic and believable. Manifesting $1,000,000 in a month, though could happen, is highly unlikely. If you’re looking for a new job or perhaps a promotion is quite possible. Wishes like that.
  5. Feel each wish you write out. Feel the feelings you would feel when the wish comes true.
  6. Carefully tear the page out and fold it up nicely. Hold it in your hands for awhile while really feeling each wish you wrote out. Sit in this for awhile. I usually sit here for about 10 minutes with this. I go through each wish and visualize them. The feeling is really quite beautiful.
  7. Now take this page and place it under your mattress by your pillow. Leave it here until the next new moon.

(on a side note-I like to have my favourite crystals close by too-amethyst, rose quartz, moonstone)

In a month

The day of the next new moon, take this page out and have a look at it. What manifested, what didn’t, what did you come really close to? Analyze it and see if maybe something just isn’t for you and you should manifest something better or different with the new moon for the following month.

To Manifest the Life of Your Dreams is Easier Than You Think.

Ah we’ve heard it all before a million times. If you want to manifest the life of your dreams, it starts with you. And a million other things you need to be doing. We set intentions, we pray with all our might, we feel it, believe it and want it yet it still doesn’t come.

So what went wrong? What step did I miss? I did everything the gurus told me to do but still nothing happened. You probably didn’t do anything wrong but what all those gurus forget to tell you is that to manifest your heart’s desire takes more than just setting intentions with intense emotions.

Manifest now dammit!

First of all, remember the Universe not only has a funny sense of humour, it also knows what’s good for you and what’s not. If you’re trying to manifest your ex back, the Universe will probably fight you the whole way on that one. He/she is not good for you and is an ex for a reason. Time to let it go.

But what about other things like

  • a better job
  • happier love life
  • more money
  • better relations with family/friends and spouses
  • travel more
  • and much more.

So how do we manifest those? It’s easier than you think.

Stick with me here

I’m going to share a very profound statement with you and I want it to really really sink in.

Everything is energy, good or bad.

So what exactly does that mean? It means that not only you have energy but the things you own and the space you live in has energy too. And yes, good and bad. Now knowing this, and before we get into this, I want you to take a super quick inventory of your space and your belongings.

Do you like/love them? Do they make you happy? Are you holding on to things from the past that have dark or sad memories but you can’t bear to part with them?

Are you following me now?

Think about a toxic person for example. Sally is someone you don’t like to be around, no one does. A black cloud hangs over her head 24/7. She’s toxic and miserable. You avoid Sally at all cost.

Now let’s take a look at that ugly picture you got from Aunt Betty 5 yrs ago (that was gifted to you by Uncle Jerry). She was your favourite Aunt and she’s dead now but fact of the matter is, that picture is ugly and you really don’t like it. Negative energy. Period. The fact that she’s dead adds even more negative energy to it. Why do you want to remember Aunt Betty with an ugly picture that you hate?

Get me now?

Your space, your things.

Let’s go back to why we can’t manifest all the things we want. Let’s also go back to energy is everything. When you realize that your space has negative energy things in it, you will then realize that in order to bring about more positive things in your life, you need to get rid of the negative things in your life. 

But there’s more (and the Feng Shui geek in me kicks in). Have a good look around, again, at your space. Is it clean, pretty, does it speak peace, love and harmony to you? Do you love coming home after a full day of work or does your home cause you more stress because it’s in chaos and disarray? Is your home office a jumbled up cluster fuck of papers, garbage, files, boxes and all other things that wreak havoc on you?

If you’re wondering why you can’t manifest the things you want, it’s time to take a deeper look into your personal space. There is so much more to manifesting than just writing out intentions and sending them out with the new moon or the Angels. If you don’t understand the simple and easy practice of Feng Shui, you just may never get the things you want. Trust me on this one.

Peace and Love

New Moon in July-This Will Be Life Altering! Get Ready.

Here we are a little more than halfway through the year. Big changes and crazy emotions have affected us all, amirite? I know for myself I have already had many life altering moments this year. Some good, some not so good. That’s just life, baby, and you roll with it. The new moon of July speaks of many big changes coming up. Are you ready?

I love my reflection time as it allows me to see what worked and what didn’t, what I’ve been sitting on too long and what do I need to act on. This time of the month is true soul seeking for me. I dig deep into my spirituality, my self worth and all other inner conflicts and demons to find out why I still hold on to them and why I haven’t let them go yet.

So what does this new moon mean for you?

July 13th brings about the new moon in Cancer but before we begin talking about that, something worth noting is that there is a solar eclipse on the 12th. What does all this mean?

Change, transformation, surprises and action!

With any new moon and full moon, it is a time for reflection and also a time to get shit done. Those things you’ve been sitting on all year, ya, those, get em done now! Today is the tomorrow you talked about yesterday. Capiche?

Always remember, the new moon indicates the ending or releasing of something to allow a new beginning or something greater to enter our lives. The key word here is releasing. Let it go, whatever shit you’re hanging on to that hasn’t served you any purpose up to now. Dump it.

How’s your attitude?

Don’t forget that your mind controls you. So if you are constantly thinking negatively, negative shit will always show up for you. Let me tell you now, if you’re a negative Nancy, it’s time to dump that persona. It will completely blow up for you with this new moon cycle (and with all the eclipses happening) if you don’t let it go. Try thinking positive more often. Get out of your own head and start smiling more.

A change of attitude will serve you very well during this intense energetic month. Trust me on that.

When you spend too much time in fear and self doubt, nothing happens but more fear is created and you slip deeper into self doubt. The Universe is watching you and the sky is full of energy this month. Do whatever you have to do this month to turn your fears around, flick them to the curb and start having more faith in yourself.

If you’ve been battling these negative emotions for some time, don’t you think it might be time to start working on them? Work on your limiting beliefs and in turn, watch how your life will magically transpire. I know when I was going through a really hard time 4 yrs ago, it was the sinking into rock bottom that shook me up and made me take full responsibility of my life and my actions.

Don’t wait until you hit rock bottom to change things. It’s not a nice place to be. Just take my word for it.

Moon ritual

I think it’s time I just write a separate blog on moon rituals, both full moon and new moon, but in a nutshell, here’s what I do. Take what you want, add your own spice, leave the rest.

  • find a quiet alone space
  • turn on soft music
  • light candles or burn essential oils
  • get a pad and pen
  • write out a list of wishes you want to manifest
  • feel it with every ounce of blood that flows through your veins
  • fold it up and set it under your mattress, by your head.

I do this ever month. At the next new moon I take out the old one, have a look at it, see where I’m at today and move forth with greater determination. It’s always good to write out your wishes and get really clear on them so you can see them on paper! It’s validating.

The new moon energies will be strong for the first two weeks after it starts but continue on throughout the whole month until the next month’s new moon. Embrace and enjoy!

Peace and Love

What Does Your Birthdate Say About Your Personality?

Oh fun quiz time. I found this one about my birthdate and I’m all over anything that has to do with numbers, numerology, astrology and such. This one had me really excited and I was even more excited when I realized there wasn’t a million questions to answer. I was also a little skeptical when it didn’t actually ask me for my exact date of birth.

How then will you know my what my birthdate says about me if you don’t even know what it is?

Birthdate results

Well sure as shit I was skeptical for good reason. After answering a handful of questions it was time for the big reveal and WHAT a disappointment it was!! This, by far, is the first quiz I have ever done that got the results so terribly wrong. Here’s what it said about me:

Cautious and calculated

You are a very cautious and serious person. You always think before you act and you try to handle things on your own.
Life can be hard when you are this intense. For your own good, you should try to open up to someone close, ask for help from time to time, and just try to relax. It will do you wonders!

No no no and just no!!!

So you’re probably wondering now, if the results were so wrong why am I even bothering to share this quiz with you. Well, because I really want to know if they got the results right for anyone and maybe it’s just me they fucked up on? I dunno.

Go ahead and take the quiz. It’ll take you all of 10 seconds maybe and drop your results below and let me know if your’s were more accurate than mine. I really wanna know!!

If you liked this quiz (I’d be surprised if you did) you will definitely like this one too!
