The days following a New Moon phase are auspicious. 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, we should be asking the Universe for new beginnings, by planting some seeds of intention and getting in touch with our higher-self. It’s a good time to be grateful for what you have and to work on manifesting what you’d like next to show up in your life next.
Setting Intentions under the New Moon
This is an opportune time to ask the Universe for new beginnings. The intentions that are set during a New Moon Ritual will set you on the right path towards your 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 a path towards your deepest desires, ask to be led to your manifestations. Plant seeds of intentions with your mind and heart. In the simplest of terms, write your wishes down!
Some of you might be asking how does one Set Intentions under the New Moon?
First, you should set the mood, create the energy…so light some candles, burn some incense or sage, and play some calming meditative music. Get comfortable and simply write down your deepest desires, wishes and questions. Ask yourself what would you would like to manifest or create, and what energy are you trying to bring into your life?
As your doing a ritual and setting your intentions, here’s some helpful questions you can think about…for example, what are you choosing or what changes would you like to see in your life? What are you or should you be calling in? How do you feel about what is happening in your life right now, what kind of energy do you want to create in your life during this New Moon?
Next, you’re going to Visualize and feel what you’ve written down. Close your eyes and take some nice long deep breaths, now enter into your heart (the space you feel the 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 that great Soul-Mate, driving that new car. Or keep it simple see that goal being met, see yourself feeling joyful and happy! See yourself manifesting 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 your 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 those seeds 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. The dark of the Moon or New Moon, is like the earth when you plant a flower it is dark, but once you ask for your dreams to come in…you are putting your Light on it and that is what it takes for it to grow, just like the Sun makes a flower grow, add some emotions to it and really feel what you are asking for and there is the water a flower would need to grow, see it’s all so symbolic for what we really are doing here.
Last but not least, you should work on being grateful what you already have on this planet, right in the here and now! Tell the Universe thank you and believe me once you start saying or writing down what you are grateful for, it won’t stop it will just keep coming to you. Gratitude is so popular because it works…it’s the key to manifestation.
