New Moon Rituals

I have been fascinated by moon cycles for many years. When I began learning Reiki, I chose full moon and new moon times to send free distance healing to all the subscribers and on my social media. I started watching my energies around the full moon and new moon cycles and understanding more about myself and the healing journey. And this allowed me to discover more about the collective energies and how we are impacted at these times. Women are significantly more sensitive to these energies as they are tuned with our menstrual cycles of 28 days.

New Moon is like that new empty vessel. Imagine your vessel is empty, nothing in it right now, and it's our choice what to fill in with—and coming closer to the New moon, it's the perfect time to fill up with all the loving words and good intentions.

Make this time sacred and create a sacred space for yourself and your loved ones.

New moon ritual

The below-mentioned rituals can be done around New moon times. I am sharing a few practices that I follow below.

  1. Cleanse your room and altar, and leave windows or doors slightly open.

  2. Use Sage or Pablo Santo sticks and if you don't have them handy, set intentions to have these energies around.

  3. You can use salt water if sage is not available. Add Rock salt or Himalayan salt, keep it in a bowl and add water to ½ of the bowl. And flush the water away the following day. Avoid ti closer to pets or babies.

  4. Then light a candle and let your intentions reflect on this light.

  5. Make sure you keep yourself hydrated.

  6. I drink Cacao to make myself grounded and it helps with heart-opening. If interested, here is the link to try it out. (I will write another blog post about the benefits of Cacao).

  7. Or Herbal teas are great alternatives as well.

  8. Have a bath time to relax your body and calm your mind to clarify the intentions you want to set.

  9. I go for Oracle cards as divination tools to see the messages that my guides are communicating.

  10. Meditation or gentle stretches are a great way to get out of your mind and into your body.

Keeping things simple and doable has a high success rate. It's okay, and no one is watching it other than you.

New Moon Prayer

Fully be present and repeat the below prayer as you do the ritual,

Dear Universe,

I welcome Joy

I welcome Love

I welcome light

I welcome Clarity

I welcome Growth

I welcome Transformation

I am ready to manifest and set intentions for the forthcoming days.

Thank you

Repeat the prayer and tune with your own words if needed .. (prayers work with much ease when we use our tone). Be in a meditative state for e few minutes, and let this energy sync in with you.

New moon Journal Prompts

  1. What are three goals I want to accomplish this month?

  2. What does my heart truly desire?

  3. Imagine that you are planting three seeds that will grow and bloom in the next month. What are you planting right now?

  4. Write down your desires or intentions for this day and the coming days to bring into your life. Be present and be committed to what you have written. Be practical and don't overdo yourself.

Setting your ideal and realistic goals is so important.

Align your actions as per your dreams and visions...

The moon is our constant reminder to stay in touch with ourselves. New moon, it's time to be more calm and reflective. New Moon is all about setting intentions for the coming days. And they tend to be a quiet time for us to reflect and prepare for the actions we may need to take soon after. The energy is low as you can see in the sky; the light is barely there, but it is the best time to see other planets or stars, exactly seem to the other reflective parts within us. Take time to journal and chillax.

And welcome this new moon with new opportunities that widen your heart and arms to embrace it all. Be creative and bring in yourself in this process. You can add in Crystals or angels or energy healing, etc. Have a great time doing this, and may all your wishes be fulfilled. Happy New moon.

Share what are your practices and how you welcome a new moon and new cycle within you?
