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.

Delight, Luck and Surprise! The Exciting Full Moon in June

Oh yay!! Rejoice. It’s full moon time (June 27th) and this one has crazy surprises and delight! Yippee. Are you starting to feel a little bit excited? Is your energy becoming restless because you just know good things are on the way? I’m suddenly full of piss and vinegar and can’t wait to see what manifests for me in the next few weeks.

Let’s break this moon down a bit. It’s in the sign of Capricorn and if you know anything about this sign you know that Cap peeps are full of ideas, very practical and go getters. They are on a mission and will leave no stone unturned looking for answers. Be like a Capricorn during this full moon energy. I think the surprises that will show up for you  will delight you.

Your ideas will bring you delight

So knowing that this moon is in Cap and knowing that peeps in this sign get shit done, let that be a sign for you. You know what you want to do. You know what you want to manifest. You know what your burning passion and desire is, now is the time to bring it to fruition. Figure out how to do it, who do you need to talk to but most importantly, if fear has been holding you back, it’s time to flick that fucker to the curb. Got no time for that.

When you put your intention out to the world with bravery and confidence, you will be amazed at what it returns to you. Open your consciousness to the belief that you do deserve what you desire and once you do that, let it happen. Let your desire show up for you.

Feeling lucky these days?

Though I’m not a fan of the word luck and I don’t believe in luck, once you’ve opened your heart and mind to the belief that you can have what you want, and things start magically showing up for you, you will almost feel like the luckiest person in the world. Start the process early by believing that you are “lucky” and the things you want are coming. If they are for your higher good, they will show up!

Strawberry Full Moon

This full moon in Capricorn is also named the Strawberry Full Moon. Remember the seeds you planted in the new moon of this month? (you did plant seeds, didn’t you?) Watch them bloom and flourish now. It’s a sweet time! As your crops start growing, remember you also have to nurture them. Stick with them. Do what you have to do to make them the greatest crops of the year.

It’s also a time to pick the weeds. Is there something in your life that doesn’t serve you anymore? Is there someone who has the potential to kill your crops? Get rid of ’em them too. Be selfish. It’s your time and this is something you must do for you and your growth. Dump the naysayers. They aren’t living your life, you are.

People are awesome

We learn a little bit about ourselves, and others, from the company we keep. Open yourself to meeting new people, learning new things and growing your circle. There just may be someone you meet during this full moon energy who can help you with your dream and  passion. Ah more delight! Yay!

Remember that dream or passion you have? That goal you want to reach? People will play a huge role in you achieving it. Stay open. Listen with your ears, not your mouth (know what I mean). Don’t discount suggestions from other people. Sometimes we don’t see things the way others do. Put your ego aside. You don’t always have all the answers.

Full moon ritual

Time to put your intentions out to the moon and the universe. While you’re moon bathing ( I should really blog about that) which means, basking in the light of the moon for at least 15 minutes,an hour really is best, feel your intentions, really feel what it is that you want and what you want to achieve. Feel like you have it already. Feel the feeling of what it will be like when you have it. The moon’s energy feels you and will return it back to you tenfold.

Here’s to us and our dreams coming true!

Start howling!!

Peace and Love

New Moon Energy in May: In the Name of Love and Money!

Yay new moon time! And oh how I’m loving this one. The energy of this month’s new moon is asking you to keep the faith and have hope. Things are gonna get real, real soon! As with any new moon, it’s a time for beginnings and endings. Ending what no longer serves you and start afresh.

What’s the energy this month?

The energy is definitely positive (and you should take action on your dreams and goals) but there is also the possibility of deep and intense experiences. These can go either way depending on how you react. Watch your tongue this month. Don’t act from your emotions if they are negative or in anger. On the flip side of that, the intense and deep energies can go well if you come from a place of love and compassion.

You will discover you have more power over your own life and your dreams and goals, and the result of this will be nothing but good! Take back control and power over your life during this time. Remember your “why” and who you are and then let magical things happen in your life.

In the name of love and money.

When we give from the heart and focus on benevolence, good things happen. Not only for you, but the world around you. The world is always in need of more healers, helpers and lovers. Have you been thinking lately of doing more volunteering or donating? Have you always wanted to give generously but haven’t been doing so lately? This new moon energy encourages you to do just that.

When we give from the heart, without expectations, the whole world opens up for us,in the name of love and money. Good things happen to all parties involved! Is there a favourite charity you have that maybe you used to give to but for some reason stopped? They still need you. Now is the time to give, even if it’s only your time.

The new moon ritual.

I’m a ritual kinda gal and while that sounds sort of woowoo, it’s not. On the evening of the new moon, I like to sit quietly and reflect on the past month. I like to light candles and put on nice soft music. If you are fortunate enough to have lavender oil, simmer some of that. Turn off all your gadgets and sit in peace.

I will then write out my new moon wishes. I usually write 5. The top things I want to manifest in my life or at least see more progress in. Is it love you are looking for or maybe a new job? Perhaps you are looking for a promotion or better health. Write out your wishes now. Write them with deep meaning and belief that they are well on their way. You want to feel like they are coming. Like it’s a given.

I like to take this paper and put it under my mattress by my pillow for the full month. Just before the next new moon, I will retrieve it, read it and then burn it with blessings of love and thanx.

The new moon energy is high during the first two weeks. Feel your intentions in your heart and soul with love in this time.

And then watch change happen for you. Be positive, have faith and give unconditionally. Your whole world will explode!
