“New Moon” Setting Intentions
Posted by Ruby
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, and the Moon and Sun join in a harmonious aspect in the Cosmos. The days that follow are filled with a magical energy that awakens our inner-self. 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 higher-self. It’s a good time to be grateful for what you already have and to work on manifesting what energy you’d like to bring into your life next.
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, Guides, Angels, etc), and ask for the “New Moon” to open up the paths towards your deepest desires, ask to be led down the right path to help you manifest your dreams and desires. Make sure and plant seeds of intentions with your mind and then feel them with your heart.
Some of you might be asking how does one “Set Intentions” under the New Moon?
First you should set the mood and create the energy, so start out by lighting some candles and burning some incense or sage, and play some calming meditative music. Get comfortable and simply write what energy you’d like to bring in your life…your deepest desires and wishes, and hopes and dreams. You can do this on a piece of paper or in a journal. If you don’t have a lot of time you can always write your intentions out on your smart phone or computer. But I personally find that using pen to paper creates a better energy, because we are connecting with our Spirit, Mind, and Body as a whole. Think about what you would like to manifest or create under the New Moon energy. What kind of energy are you trying to bring in?
As you’re “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, and what would you like to create or change?What do you truly, deeply desire that you don’t already have? What’s next in all areas of your life?
Next you should do the spiritual work to back up what you’ve written out. So you are going to “Visualize” and feel what you’ve written. So close your eyes and take some nice long deep breaths….stay with that for a little while, and once you feel relaxed… keep your eyes closed and meditate. Now enter 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 want by really seeing it and then Feeling It! Imagine if you will your wishes as if you are really experiencing them.
The New Moon phase is the best time for planning and setting your intentions. After you’ve done the energy work to call in what you choose, you’re going to need to be patient and wait for the seeds you planted to grow…just like you would wait on a flower to sprout from a seedling, and sometimes these things take time, but there are those fantastic times were miracles just show up! Remember when a plant grows it needs sunlight, so we need to be aware and shine our inner light on our desires, hopes, wishes and dreams…by “Setting Intentions.” Then you are putting the light on your intentions in a energetic way which helps these things grow and manifest into reality!
Allow the New Moon energy to go out and start to build the energy of what you have asked or wished for. Remember what you put intention into will start to form an energy and eventually in one way or another manifest into reality. Hopefully you can make some magic and bring some amazing, miraculous energies to you during the New Moon.
