Tonight the sky is black. Void of light. A blank slate. This is the magic of the New Moon. As we release the things that don’t serve us at the Full Moon, we are now an empty void waiting to be filled with light.
As I look up into the night sky, it reminds me of the calm and peace that fills you when you release the old stagnant things that don’t serve your better good any more. The calm of nothingness and silence. The state of just being in the NOW.
Releasing anything, even if it’s a negative thing, can produce fear and anxiety of the unknown. Sometimes we’re so used to the negative and chaotic ways of our mind and life, that it’s scary to let go of that familiar state and shift to an unknown. Even if it’s a positive shift.
This is where we have faith. We feel the fear, and we’re scared, but we do it anyway. We jump off that cliff and take a chance and just KNOW that our parachute will open. And IT DOES! And even though we haven’t touched bottom yet the ride gets easier, and smother until we touch new ground and we’re OK!
Every time we take that step into the Void, we step into the darkness. We rid yourselves of that thing…anything…that isn’t working. We get scared as we adjust to the dark, and just as we don’t think we can stand it…the light begins to shine and illuminate our path. As we let in the new light, we become accustomed to it and we allow more light in until it’s filling us with the new.
As we learn and use this natural ebb and flow of life, we get accustomed to the natural flow of releasing the old and manifesting the new. Using the natural flow of this energy in our universe helps make this process natural and easy. It connects us to our earth and the heavens and all the life that exists within it. We learn to flow with the natural cycle of things instead of being a slave to the conditions made up by false belief systems based on fear and control.
This is the New Moon. What are you going to bring into you’re life? What have you gotten rid of, and what are you going to put into it’s place? As you see the moon each night get brighter and brighter, is your new goal becoming more and more a reality? Take action.
Let’s let go of limiting self- talk and replace it with self-praise.
Let’s let go of destructive relationships and replace them with loving supportive ones.
Let’s replace gossip with words of admiration.
Let’s let go of control and enjoy things just as they are.
Any thing big or small makes an impact on our lives and others. Baby steps add up to a mile. You don’t get to the top of the ladder without climbing the bottom ones first. Every step you take brings you closer to your dreams and goals.
This is the New Moon. What are you bringing into your life tonight?
