To follow up to my FULL MOON RITUAL POST, I thought you might be curious what I what I am doing for this NEW MOON. I am not an astrologer by any stretch, but I love connecting with the moon cycles and try not to make it too complicated. The truth is, you don't have to have any connection to the moon to enjoy these rituals. At the very least, it is a nice reminder every few weeks to check in on what you want to bring in and what you want to let go of..
NEW MOON RITUAL
Again, I'm going to start by creating a sacred space. For me, that is by my Altar, with all my crystals, which many of you might have already seen on this Instagram Post . I will light incense and a candle and play:
The first Mantra (Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo) is for tuning in. Connecting to your highest self and the line of teachers that have come before you. Tapping into your divine flow...I will sit quiet with my eyes closed listening, taking long deep breaths. Getting quiet. Going in...When it feels ready, I will begin...
This is our last New moon of the year, so we want to take time with it. The new moons are often associated with new beginnings. It is a great time to think about the things you want to bring into your life. The things you want to focus on. In this particular New Moon, you can also focus on what you has been holding you back and then letting that go. What obstacles have you encountered and how can you see a way around them.
With your crystals, candle and incense lit, start journaling, while listen to the Play List . Take your time. Reflect. Think about what has been standing in your way, and see yourself moving it. Then start focusing on all that you want to bring in. You can do this is any way that feels comfortable. This can be lists, descriptions, anything that gets you into the feeling of what you want to bring forth. Get excited about all that is coming.
When you are done, take out your Palo Santo or Sage and start cleansing yourself and your crystals. I start with myself and the move onto my crystals, Starting at my feet and swirling in the smoke. Releasing it all. Chanting along with the third song:
Har Har Har Har Gobinde is the mantra of the second and third song. This Mantra is said to fixe the mind to prosperity and gives power to break down barriers of the past. It converts fear to determination and invokes guidance. (source 3HO)
"This mantra is to fix the mental to prosperity or power. It will produce money, it will come. Opportunities will come. Richness will come..." - Yogi Bhajan This isn't just about money, it is whatever it is that you are asking to call in.
"When you chant this mantra with the breath of life, it's quick, it's purposeful, and it brings in what you need to bring in..." - Yogi Bhajan
Har Har Har Har Gobinday,
Har Har Har Har Mukunday
Har Har Har Har Udaaray
Har Har Har Har Apaaray
Har Har Har Har Hariang
Har Har Har Har Kariang
Har Har Har Har Nir-naamay
Har Har Har Har Akaamay
Repeating it along with the song as you let the smoke cover your energy. Feel the blessing of letting things that don't serve you go, and then feeling all that you can be. End at the crown , above the head.
When I am done, I place my crystals out in the moon light. I like to let my crystals sit out for a minimum of 24 hours…When you take them back in, they will have the power of your intentions.
Above, is just what I do, but feel free to tweak it and make it your own. Tap into what feels good for you.
Please note, the energy of the new moon is not just on the actual new moon, so if you can't do it tonight, don't you fret, you have 3 days before and after...
Enjoy...Drop me a line and let me know, how it went. I would love to hear from you!
