All That New Moon Energy
New Moon energy is a potent tool to help you grow your manifestations. Learning how to work within the phases of the moon can compliment your energetic practices. To begin with, learning the methods to harness the growing energy of the New Moon will empower you. As a rule, this is the place where you can start to learn how to find the natural rhythm within your own energy flow.
The Basics Of Moon Magick
A New Moon, or a dark moon, is a powerful lunar phase of teeming potential, right before it begins to grow. For around two weeks the moon will continue to grow in size and illumination until it reaches its peak as the Full Moon. Hence, during this time you work with the New Moon energy to grow and manifest in your life. While in the phase of the Full Moon the moon is at its zenith magickally. The day before and after the peak of the Full Moon is considered the best times to work within its energy. The waning moon, or as it is in its decline is the best time to do work to remove unwanted elements of your life.
First, determine when the next New Moonrise is in your area. Knowing the exact time is beneficial to expand the energy behind your work. Next, set your intent. Take some time to discover what you are longing to manifest. I sometimes find stilling myself and meditating on it can help me figure that out.
Similarly, journalling is another helpful way to determine your focus. Once you’ve determined your intent, you are ready to start your New Moon energy manifestation. By the way, it is entirely acceptable to have a couple of items on your list.
Where ever you do your working, put your list out for you to focus on your intentions. Personally, if I can, I like to get outside under that moon and let its energy wash over me. Stilling myself, I attempt to feel the tug of the New Moon energy within me. I take this time to visualize the intentions I hope to grow and allow myself to feel one with the New Moon.
Your Personal Working
You can write yourself a personal mantra to recite at New Moon and throughout the remainder of the New Moon phase. Let’s say as one example; you are trying to grow your monthly income, write down a phrase for you to focus on during the New Moon. For example, one of my own tried and true favorites is “Money; money comes to me. Money, money sets me free.” You can lay the affirmation, or one like it, in a bowl, or on a special altar plate. Surround it with stones and gems that amplify its intent. Afterward add your daily pocket change to the working throughout the month. Similarly, add even larger bills if you like. Other ways to expand your intentions could be to spray Lucky Water or add a magickal oil to the note. You could also light money draw candles near it or even burn an incense that is known for its abundance drawing properties.
In summary, with each passing month, your knowledge will grow and your abilities will increase. Working with New Moon Energy will help you on your path to a greater understanding of all the moon phases.
Blessings on your journey!
