There was a lot of hype around manifesting in 2018, including new moon manifesting rituals. Though some are still cynical about the whole idea, it makes sense when we remember that energies are a genuine thing hence why our ancestors hunted and fished based on the moon cycles.
How to Execute a New Moon Manifesting Ritual
The new moon’s energy is the ideal time for new beginnings and positive changes. It’s the time for self-reflection and to set intentions for what you want to manifest in your life over the next two week or 6-month cycle.
The Waning Moon
Decreasing after a full moon, and always illuminated on the left, the waning moon is the time to let go of anything that no longer serves you. Write down what you want to release, whether that be feelings of sadness, attachment or anger towards someone, and put it under your pillow. Let go, cleanse and slow down during this time to reenergize.
The Full Moon
Set your intentions. Now is the time to manifest.
Performing The New Moon Ritual
1. Create your sacred space.
If you live by the ocean, head to the beach to absorb the highest power of the moon and start the manifesting process, if you don’t live near the sea, create a sacred space at home. Light candles and burn sage to clear energies. Play some relaxing music and surround yourself with crystals. Focus on breathing deeply and slowly until you feel in tune with your thoughts and feelings.
2. Set your intentions.
What would you like to manifest over the next moon cycle? Write down your intentions. Put them out into the universe.
Visualize every step you need to take to turn your goals into reality. Feel yourself achieving your dreams.
Schedule a reminder every few days to reflect on your intentions to hold yourself accountable and stay on track.
