Setting Intentions under the “New Moon”
The actual day of the New Moon, the balsamic or dark Moon period, marks the beginning point when the heavens shift from dark to light. On the following days magic is in the air and the inner life is awakened. During the New Moon cycle you should be asking the Universe for new beginnings, by planting some seeds of intention and getting in touch with your Souls. It’s a good time to be grateful for what you already have and to work on manifesting what you’d like to have show up next in your life.
This is an opportune time to ask the Universe for new beginnings. The intentions that are set during a New Moon will set you on the right path towards your deepest desires. Have a conversation with the Universe (meaning your higher power, God, Source, Guides, Angels, etc), and ask for the New Moon to open up the paths towards your deepest desires, ask to be led to your manifestations. Plant seeds of intentions with your mind and heart.
Some of you might be asking how does one set Intentions under the New Moon?
First you should set the mood, create the energy … light some candles, burn some incense or sage, and play some calming meditative music. Get comfortable and simply write your deepest desires, wishes and questions on a piece of paper, if you don’t have a lot of time and can’t make the it, you can always write them out on your smart phone or computer. Ask yourself what you would like to manifest or create in this energy, what are you trying to bring in?
As you’re doing a ritual and setting your intentions for the New Moon, here’s some helpful questions you can think about:
- What are you choosing or what changes would you like to see in your life?
- What kind of energy should you be calling in?
- How do you feel about your life now, what would you like to create or change?
- What do you truly, deeply desire that you don’t already have?
Next your going to Visualize and feel what you’ve written. Close your eyes and take some nice long deep breaths, now enter into your heart (the space you feel love from.) Visualize yourself in the desire or dream you’re creating. For example, see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with a Soul-Mate partner, or driving that new car. Manifest what you would like to call in during the New Moon. Just don’t think about it, make sure and “FEEL IT”, as if you were really experiencing what you’re wanting and visualizing.
The New Moon phase is the best time for planning and seeding your intentions. You’re going to need to be patient and wait for the seeds of intention you have planted to grow, just like you would wait on a flower to sprout from a seedling, and remember when a plant grows it needs sunlight. This is also true for us, as we get our ideas together and make our visions known, it takes some time for our wishes or desires to surface into reality. Allow the New Moon energy to go out and start to build the energy of what you have asked for. Remember what you put intention into will start to form an energy and eventually in one way or another manifest into reality. You’ll hopefully make some magic and make your dreams come true during this New Moon. ~Ruby
