“Never Trust Your Fears; They Do Not Know YOUR Strength” ~Athena Singh
As I have written before, 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 in Libra, there is a focus on relationships (I am sure you have been reading about Venus going retrograde). How are you showing in relationships? And most importantly, how have you been showing up in your relationship with yourself? This of course is the most important relationship of all.
There are less than 3 months left in the year, how have you been showing up for what you want? What are the things you said you wanted at the beginning of the year and have yet to make happen? Have you been able to take steps towards it? Are there areas where you are being dishonest with yourself? Are you allowing your fears and doubts getting in the way of creating what you want? Is the voice of your fears louder than the voice of your trust?
We can often get caught up in that idea that we can’t do the thing that we want. Others can have it, but we can’t. It can feel impossible to live the life of our dreams. With the power of the New Moon, I am going to do the Kundalini Meditation Gan Puttee Kriya: The Kriya to Make the Impossible Possible. I would love for you to join me.
First lets start with a journaling exercise. Focus on what you want to make happen with the rest of the year. You still have 3 months. What do you want to get down? What have you been letting the fear stop you? You can listen to this Playlist
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, and then back to myself. Starting at my feet and swirling in the smoke. Releasing what isn’t needed and soaking up all the energy that is supporting my growth for the next few months. .
Playlist Mantras for Journaling
It will have 3 different Mantras. The first two are explained below and the final will be part of the Kundalini Meditation.
Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo (the Adi Mantra)
I bow to the Creative Wisdom, I bow to the Divine Teacher within.

It will help you to be free of the insecurities which block freedom of action. By meditating on it one can obtain a deeper understanding of the constant interplay between the manifest and the unmanifest qualities of the cosmos and consciousness.

“Technologically you have to develop two areas: the frontal lobe and the upper palate. The upper palate is developed by jappa. The frontal lobe is developed by meditation.” -Yogi Bhajan
“Gan Puttee is another name for Ganesha, the god of knowledge and writing. He is often represented with a rat at his feet. The rat represents cleverness and the ability to get through any barrier to the solution. This meditation can dissolve any conundrum or blockage in your life.” -Gurucharan Singh Khalsa

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...
Please note, while it is great to do this with the New Moon, you can really start ANYTIME, so don't make excuses why you can't start TODAY!
Enjoy...Drop me a line and let me know, how it went. I would love to hear from you!
