The moon is a symbol used in rituals – its a point of attention and in this case, the New Moon is the portal for attraction. Use this New Moon workshop and the power of every New Moon to bring your goals to life – as if by magic!
The coming New Moon falls on All Hallow’s Eve (Halloween) in the Southern Hemisphere this year – and is in Scorpio. What a phenomenally powerful time to start laying the ground work for your goals and setting your intentions for the coming month and year ahead!
The “veil between worlds” is thinnest during the period of Halloween and with the New Moon in Scorpio this month, there is sexual chemistry EVERYWHERE and with charts for Scorpio rising showing Pluto in the 3rd House of the Mind there is an extra energetic and almost magical element to this month’s New Moon!
New Moons have been used in rituals for centuries, and are the pivotal point in the calendar for spells, incantations, rituals and manifestations where you wish to draw in or attract something to you.
I draw to me all that I desire and I am deserving of all that I desire
New Moon Workshop
Part 1: Centre Yourself
Sometime during the day of the New Moon – this month’s being Southern Hemisphere’s Halloween – October 31st 2016 at 4:38am in the morning – take a moment to sit quietly with yourself.
Start breathing deeply into your lower belly – hold your breath if you can for a slow count of 5, then breathe out slowly for a count of 5. This will centre you very quickly. Its called The Breath of Life technique and I learned it whilst training as an opera singer many years ago.
NB: Please – no alcohol or caffeine! Caffeine is a “yang” substance that puts your energy into your head and mind and not into your body. For the sake of your goals and intentions, skip the morning coffee and the evening wine this time – okay?
Let’s start by taking stock of where we are at now.
- How was the last month for you?
- What was great about it?
- What was not so great?
- What would you do differently if you could?
- What do you want to happen between now and this time next month?
- What are your current goals?
- Where are you at with each goal right now?
- Where do you want to be this time next month?
- What are your old goals – do you need to revisit them?
- Is there any situation you wish would change – what is it and how do you want it changed?
Part Two: Setting Intentions
Once you have written down some answers to the above sample questions, you should have a very solid understanding of where you are at and where you wish to be.
This is important because without clarify your New Moon Workshop will lack the necessary “attraction factor“.
This section is all about brainstorming + imagining your future – I like to call it My Creative Workshop. This is where written goals come into their own as they provide the stimulus and guidance for you to direct your attention with.
With your written goals and intentions, it’s time to set to work on creating an image in your mind of the outcome, for each goal.
Start with situations that are pressing and important to you – they may be urgent or they may be discomforting. Let’s go there first.
- Express your written intention out loud verbally
Speak clearly, firmly and loudly. This will vibrate out into The Universe and start enacting energies on your behalf. Speak in the PRESENT tense – as though its already happened or is happening before you, right now. Own your intentions – speak them as though you already live them each and every day.
- Once expressed, close your eyes and start to imagine the outcome you want
This part is vital – your mind can not distinguish the difference between what is real and what is vividly imagined. Make the picture as bright, clear and life life – real – as you possibly can. Move around in it, feel the joy of having achieved this outcome. Feel gratitude for the amazing blessings upon you – right now. This is where going back to imagining things just like a child would is no longer ‘child’s play’ – its changing your life!
- Loving Mantra: I draw to me all that I desire and I am deserving of all that I desire
When you’ve visualised the outcome for a few minutes (or 15 minutes altogether for all goals / intentions at once) then its time to command the Universe to action. Repeat this mantra in your head and outloud for a few minutes. Watch for any signs of resistance or any discomfort – this is your body signalling that you do not believe what you are saying; that you do not believe you are worthy.
Worthiness is a key reason why so many intentions fail to manifest. The other reason is impatience.
If there is a lack of worthiness – a lack of self worth – it is advisable to work on it. Sit with the feeling of being unworthy to receive your desires. Allow it to move through, in and around you – do not grasp at it, begging to understand and do not force yourself to release it. Simply sit with it – let it be – watch it. Ask it questions – gently.
- What is it that I am unworthy of?
- When did I first form this belief?
- What else do I believe I am not worthy to be / do / have?
- What can be done to release this belief?
- What can be done to replace this belief?
It might sound a bit out there – to sit with a discomforting emotion and have a conversation with it – however I promise you, if you are in your centre, the answers will come.
The answers will be first thing that comes to you – and the quietest. It is tricky to do this if you are not centred, not relaxed.
Remember to keep breathing. Breathe in and out easily and slowly and focus your attention at the centre point of your body, 10cm below your navel. Here is the seat of the Divine Feminine and the font of limitless wisdom. Here is the seat of your intuition. Talk to her and listen – she will guide you.
Finish With Love
The focus on this New Moon Workshop is to remind you to work on your intentions and written goals, each and every month. By doing so, you breathe new life into your desires, you focus more attention and therefore energy on that which you want to attract to you.
This practice helps to balance out any fear or negative emotion you have going on in your life regarding situations, people or goals. It restores equilibrium and gives The Universe something to work with.
When we are unclear, confused, lacking focus and direction The Universe tries to work with us to deliver our desires, but becomes confused also.
How can you deliver a package to someone who does not know what they want to order?
Each month at the New Moon, take a little time out – 20 minutes or so is plenty – to enact this Workshop. Breathe life into your goals and revitalise your dreams. You will find doing so will change things – almost by magic!
Finish your Creative Workshop with love. Look upon your desires and goals with love – as though they were the single most divinely beautiful thing you have ever laid eyes on! Feed your desires and goals with love, infuse the image with joy and vitality – see yourself living your new life full of joy and loving every second of it.
This is how to finalise your order with The Universe.
Finally, say thank you… and release your intentions to The Universe.
You can write them on a piece of paper and burn it in your sink (let’s remember – safety first!) or snuff out a candle or drink a brewed tea into which you have focused your intentions and desires. Anything significant for you to close the ritual and release the energy to the Universe. This is called “surrendering” to The Universe – after which you need not ponder, think or worry about your intentions.
Change is afoot and the answers will come.
Here’s to your future, now!
