I have a deep fascination with the moon and I passionately follow its different phases throughout the month.
Getting in sync with the moon cycles can assist with keeping our health as well as our emotions enhanced.
When you start to become more aware of its phases you’ll begin to notice that certain phases of the moon cycle have a great deal of emotional energy present. The advantage of this is that during these certain phases healing and deep emotional work can be more easily accessed.
Yogi Bhajan said:
Your biofeedback moves from New Moon to Full Moon, and Full Moon to New Moon. There are three days of the Moon. If you fast at these times you can bring your mind and health into balance. In Ayurveda this is considered to be the mastery of all treatments.
So I’ve somehow managed to talk my hubby in to going on a juice only fast starting on Friday for three days (not sure how I’ve managed to talk him in to it). We’re going to be housebound for three days and I’m going to really use this time to heal, clear away and let go of all that is no longer serving me on a physical, mental and emotional level. I’ll keep you posted on how this goes!
The New Moon:
Think of the New Moon as day one of the moon cycle. During this time, our glands are at a low ebb, and so is our energy. This is a good day to do an active Kundalini yoga kriya or yoga class and also to do some meditations which focus on positivity and transformation (which I’ve included for you today).
The energy during this time is very special indeed to heal at all levels, physical, emotional and spiritual. It’s a time to plant new seeds for growth and prosperity. The New Moon is the best time for planning and seeding your goals and intentions. We can use this time is to develop our ideas and clear the way to make room for our dreams to surface into reality.
So what I suggest is that you take some time out with your journal today or tomorrow (while the energy is still strong and potent) in your sacred space and get setting those intentions.
Moon Ritual for Birthing Your Wishes and Desires
// Start by cleansing your sacred space with an opening prayer/chant, some sage, incense or burn some cleansing oil.
// Light some candles around your space.
// Gather your crystals and place them around your space.
// Try the Kundalini mediation below in the video that I’ve created for you today.
This is one of the most powerful Kundalini meditations you can practice. This kriya will help to stimulate the flow of energy and is said to raise your Kundalini. Afterwards it will leave you feeling energized and more balanced. It’s also good at removing energy imbalances and blockages from your lower 3 chakras (energy centres).
// Once you’ve completed the meditation, grab your journal/notebook and date the top of the page with New Moon Intentions. What I suggest is buying a separate notebook/journal and you can name it New Moon Intentions/Manifesting Journal. You can play some nice relaxing music in the background if you wish. I adore this divine album from Nirinjan Kaur Prem Siri at the moment.
// Start by writing the following statement ‘’I accept these things into my life now for my highest good and for the highest good of all concerned’’.
// Next start writing your desires, dreams, wishes – basically everything you want to bring into your life. You may just have a few items or you may have a number of pages (like me). Please try not to restrict or limit yourself. Don’t deny yourself of anything.
Keep that New Moon list somewhere that you can see on a regular basis. What I tend to do is take a peek at it once a day and I cross out anything on that list that has come my way. Make sure that you take the time to rewrite the list excluding the now manifested items from your original list. I highly recommend revising your main list in this way. You can also add to this list whatever else that you have decided you would like. Remember it’s only natural that your dreams, goals, desires and intentions will change as time goes on.
Intentions that are stated or written down hold a great amount of power in them, so please take care in considering those things that you truly want. Forget about what others have. This is your life. What do you want? What kind of person do you want to be? Don’t waste your energy getting caught up in what others are doing. Live your own life! Be authentic to you and your desires.
From the New Moon until the Full Moon the moon is said to be waxing.
This is a time to initiate projects. It’s a time to go out and do things. So get out there and make things happen during this time! This is when our seeds/intentions grow.
What makes this New Moon Eclipse in Taurus so special?
Here’s a little something I found over at mysticmamma
“The Solar Eclipse | New Moon in Taurus brings us an opportunity to settle in and ground the energies that have been unearthed during this recent portal of transformation. We can allow the nurturing, feminine and grounding energy of Taurus to help us move forward, by physically engaging in that which nurtures.
Spending quality time with our family and engaging in the physical satisfaction of doing things with our hands, cooking, crafting, building, cleaning, all these things bring us deep satisfaction and ground us into the present.
So much of what has been suppressed is coming to the light and it feels as though the very ground beneath us, our very foundation has been shaking, and for some of us it truly has. Our collective ground of being needs to be shaken because it most of it has been built on illusions.
This has been a time of seeing. Illusions about ourselves, illusions about others and illusions about our world. All of these are crumbling away so we can rebuild on what is real and true.
It is a time of recognizing and aligning with what we truly value, and then vowing to live our lives in a way that truly upholds and reflects it. Not in just with our words, but with our actions and the way that we live. This is the lesson this time brings.
So have courage dear hearts, see what needs to be seen, feel it, and allow the transformation that is taking place within and without to carry us to the new. Magic, rebirth, inspiration and much goodness awaits.”
New Moon Blessings,
Love and Light
