3 Simple Steps to Harness the Power of the New Moon
New Moon is a time of new beginnings filled with great energetic potential if we take the time to seed our intent on the understanding energy flows where attention goes.
Step 1: Release the Past & Cleanse Your Space.
Before we can call in our heart’s deepest desire we need to clear what no longer serves our highest good and growth. To do that, I recommend clearing yourself and your home of old stagnant energies. You can do this by burning dried sage. Known as ‘smudge sticks’—a Native American custom where dried sage is bundled with sweetgrass and other herbs specifically for this purpose. Simply light and fan the sacred smoke through your energy field and through each room of your living or work space. New moon is also an ideal time clear clutter and promote abundance and new opportunities by giving away what you no longer use.
Alternatively, you can clap your hands to clear old energy or place uncooked eggs or amethyst (purple), citrine (yellow) or clear quartz crystal points in the corners of your room to absorb negative energies and then discard the eggs and put your crystals out in the sunlight to clear and recharge.
Step 2: Decide what you want to manifest.
The best way to do this is to still your mind so you can hear the gentle voice of the heart within. New moon is the ideal time to meditate so you may find it easier today than at other times of the month. It is more effective to focus on manifesting states of being such as joy than it is a specific outcome, such as a new job or partner. Why? Everything is frequency. So if we focus on embodying a high vibe state we will naturally magnetise to us external situations that reflect that state, such as soul-fulfilling work or new love.
Step 3: Set your intention.
Find a quiet space where you can be alone to meditate for about 20 minutes. You may wish to sit in the garden with your back against a tree or light some candles. As you light each candle speak aloud the qualities you wish to embody in the coming lunar month such as inner peace, self-acceptance or patience. You may prefer to focus on just one quality, such as “love” and repeat this in your thoughts as you breathe in and breathe out.
