New Moon, New You. We could all benefit from a fresh start, and the new moon gives us an excellent reason to slow down. This is a great time check-in with how we're doing, and feeling, and dedicate some time to set intentions for the season ahead. Plant now, what you would like to harvest later.
Why The New Moon?
Unlike the full moon, which symbolizes the culmination of your hard work and the completion of another lunar cycle, the new moon is all about planting seeds of intention so that you may cultivate new opportunities and achieve new personal and spiritual growth moving forward.
It's also a great time to reinvest in your mind, body, and spirit through self-care practices! An intentional time to be present and slow down the hustle of life. Here are a few ways to support yourself during the next new moon:
Let Your Dreams Expand And Think Big
When the moon disappears in the sky, it's time to reflect on all the amazing things you want to manifest in your life.
Whether you write your intentions down or visualize them, you'll want to be specific as you envision what you desire to call in, act as though it's already yours, and allow yourself to feel the gratitude, excitement, and joy of receiving it. As if you were opening a gift!
Tune Into Self
The new moon also plays an important role in renewing your sense of self-love. In addition to reflecting on your goals, practicing your favorite forms of self-care can help you give your mind and body the attention they deserve.
Rest when you need to, prioritize eating more healthy foods when you can, move in ways that feel good, and whatever you do, make sure you're dedicating time to performing activities that bring you joy.
Remember: taking the time to rest is productive and helps nourish your spirit while revitalizing your energy bank. Be sure to take all the time you need to care for yourself. Dreaming up your future is hard work!
Explore Kind Words Of Truth
Affirmations are a powerful tool that can help individuals build a positive mindset and stay motivated to achieve their goals. The use of affirmations involves repeating positive statements to oneself that reinforce desired behaviors, thoughts, or beliefs.
By affirming positive statements consistently to self, individuals can foster a sense of self-belief and confidence that can propel them forward in their pursuits. Try adding sticky notes to your bathroom mirrors or workspace area to help boost your good vibes!
