I love a new or dark moon. This is the pivoting moment, when we are empty. Empty of all the things we purged ourselves of at the last full Moon. As we set our intentions a few weeks ago to remove things that didn’t serve our highest good, or stood in the way of our goals, or personal growth, every day we gave it away to the universe. As circumstances came forward that helped us release our pain, guilt, fears, or people who are holding us back, we became lighter, freer, and clearer. Even if we are still working on some of the things we are letting go, this is the opportune time to fill some of that empty space with what we want. Fill it up with the essence of our dreams and desires, and go for it all! Don’t hold back, and don’t cut yourself short, for whatever you want in your life, you can achieve by taking one step at a time.
The Dark Moon is symbolic of the dark and stillness that the light of creation blooms forth from. The moon, as it waxes, like our goals, get closer and the results get brighter each day.
This New Moon is a special one, since it marks the beginning of spring. A change of season, and the beginning to new growth in nature. Spring gives us that warm feeling of new beginnings, we’re motivated to get outside, start new projects, buy new clothes, get a new look, begin a new relationship, etc.
Let’s harness this energy of the new moon along with the new birth of spring, and set some personal goals that will truly let us be who we truly are and enjoy the happiness that we deserve.
If you are in an unhappy relationship, send yourself some much needed self love, courage, and self-esteem.
Doing this on a regular basis will give you the strength to one day, when you are ready, to put your own happiness first no matter what.
If you have a project that has been on the back burner because you are afraid of failure or ridicule, it’s time to send your self some energy to unblock the road, take a risk, and live your dream and be happy.
If you want a new job, start looking to take some courses, or take the leap and apply for a new one.
This New Moon, I will be lighting an energy candle, a courage candle, and a path clearing candle. You can do
this yourself just by simply lighting a green candle for courage, black for clearing, and yellow or white for energy. You can even just use a white candle for each. When it comes down to it, it’s the intent and energy you infuse into the candles as you focus on what you want. When you create the emotion of your goal reached inside your mind, feel the energy build and infuse that in your candle as you light it. Say a prayer or blessing over your candle and set it in motion by saying “and so it is” at the end. Always make positive statements and always raise your emotions to the highest level felt as if you have reached your goal now at that moment.
I will also be meditating with and adding the crystals rose quartz, black obsidian, and clear quartz.
Rose quartz is a gentle, heart crystal. It is soothing to the emotional body, and gently opens the heart chakra. You can sleep with Rose Quartz, and program it for the opening of your Heart. Rose quartz will also gently clear your emotional body. If you are focusing in on a new love relationship, self-love, healing, or want to clear a gloomy mood, meditate with rose quartz in your hand, or put it in the middle of your altar.
Black Obsidian is a strong grounding stone and is known as “the protector”. It is said to “mirror one’s soul. This stone brings about objectivity, dis-attachment and is grounding. It reduces fantasy and escapism. Absorbs and dissolves anger, criticism, fear, and therefore is protective. This unusual black stone absorbs darkness and converts it to white light energy. It is a warm and friendly stone, which is used at the Root Chakra, encouraging ones survival instincts and is grounding. Black obsidian brings higher Chakra light into lower ones; cleanses and uplifts. Changes fear into flexibility with the advent of change.
Clear quartz Clear Quartz amplifies, and energizes. Do not underestimate the “increasing” power of clear Quartz crystal. Consider carefully carrying quartz crystal with you all the time. Do you really desire the your emotional state to be increased? If you are dizzy, if you are in disharmony, it may increase those states. Likewise, if you are in Harmony, your frequency will increase. Programming your quartz crystal with specific intentions, will draw the energy of the program (intention) to you. Recognize the frequency that you are in, when you program your crystal, “influences” what you are drawing to you. It is not your words, but the energy of YOU, that merges and mixes with crystals. Quartz crystal amplifies the Mirror.
As you get more comfortable and want to add more pizazz and punch to your ritual, you can add essential oils, crystals, objects, incense, cards, special made spell candles made for specific intents. Like a vision board, set up your altar so you can see it every day and remind yourself of your goals. This gives you inspiration and sets your focus for the day. Meditate by your altar and light your candles, releasing the energy out into the universe every day.
The power of our thoughts and minds is endless, and you have more inner strength and personal power than you realize. By embracing and using your whole mind, body, and spirit, you will make your dreams a reality, and be your happiest self by living your purpose here in the physical world.
Happy New Moon!! xoxo
