Probably you are thinking: another moon, another ceremony, another ritual. I mean, we are talking about vision boards, therapy, visualization, meditation, mindfulness, and motivational cards. It seems exhausting and looks like it takes quite a lot of time.
I am proposing this small ceremony because it takes 1 hour of your time every month. You don’t even need to do it every 30 days. I don’t. Perhaps a few times a year. And I love it. It’s not time-consuming, and it’s that me-time surrounded with loads of positive energy that I truly appreciate and enjoy.
WHY I RECOMMEND IT
- The new moon marks the beginning of a new lunar cycle and often brings an array of new beginnings
- The new moon has fresh energy
- It’s like a portal to the Universe
- You can create new habits and set new intentions
- Start new projects
- Spend quality time with yourself
- It gives you positive energy and peace of mind
- Spend that time self-reflecting on what happened in the last few months and how you want to see the near future
HOW YOU DO IT
The rule is that there are not so many rules, and what you will create will be based on a few guidelines, but this will be your personalized ritual.
#1 PEN & PAPER
#3 NICE BACKGROUND MUSIC
#4 CRYSTALS (optional)
#5 MOTIVATIONAL CARDS (optional)
#6 VISION BOARD (optional)
MY NEW MOON CEREMONY RITUAL
First and foremost, any distraction element is being eliminated for 1 hour. So the mobiles are off.
I play some light healing music in the background and light a few candles.
I use a bit of sage around the house, saying Holy Father a few times.
After this, I will sit down at my desk and write (HANDWRITE) on a piece of paper my intentions/goals/desires – whatever you wanna call it. There is no limit here. If you want to write ten pages, do it. I usually recommend 1-3, but this is entirely up to you.
Once I am done writing, I read 1-2 times what I wrote and imagine that those intentions are already manifested.
I end the session with around 20 min of non-guided visualization.
Et voila. It’s all done in 1 hour or less.
If you want the short version of the above, you can light a candle and sit down and write your intentions.
I want to encourage you to do this monthly exercise because every 30 days, the moon delivers us an extra boost of intention-setting energy.
It would be a pity not to give it a try. At least a few times a year.
Did all the intentions I wrote down manifest? Some yes. Some no. But it would help if you start by thinking about this. Just go with the flow and enjoy the process.
I heard some theta healers or therapists tell me in private that they don’t see the point of these ceremonies, but they teach people how to do it for a fee to make money.
Well, I might not be the most organized person, and many times when there is a new moon, I might not be at home or have other things to do. But personally, what I preach is what I do and believe in. 100%.
Enjoy the next new moon, and if you need more guidance, drop me a comment.
Also, this year I will start organizing a New Moon Ceremony in Dubai. Stay tuned!
