Ahhh, the magic of la luna.
Her alluring presence, her rhythmic force.
Our closest celestial sister offers great meaning to our lives, if we allow it.
The deep darkness of the new moon creates the unmistakable opportunity for pause and reflection.
On the clear evenings where the darkest part of a crisp winters night calls to look up,
the brightest glow of the nights stars informs our ability to breathe into life.
The outer shell of the body melts.
The ability to transcend into oneness with all of the cosmos,
to ebb inside of the Milky Way, becomes magnetic.
So here we are, in the presence of another opportunity to reflect yet again on our bountiful lives.
Many of us go through phases of intention setting, doing more or less of a thing.
Abstaining, allowing, pausing.
Yet how does intention become ingrained to create real change?
A moment to celebrate your deepest passions, desires and sacred needs.
This New Moon, the invitation is, to bring your intention to life.
When setting your intention, create the statement in a positive light, with real life feelings and examples.
Find a place to take notes from now until the next new moon.
What ever your intention is, put it into real practice.
This is called a commitment.
Make an extravagant ceremony with fire and roses or as simple as noticing the wind on your skin.
My intention this moon phase is Purification.
My mantra for this: I see my self as a vessel for pure light and benevolence to flow through.
Some examples of how I can create an everyday ritual around this is:
A cleaning diet of raw foods or fasting.
Dry body brushing.
Burning my limiting beliefs.
Tiding and getting rid of clutter in my home.
I will light a candle and drink tea.
I will write down my action, the thoughts and feeling surrounding it.
I will observe the effects after the lunar cycle is complete.
Rituals create change.
They bring the value of your life into the forefront.
They make you more aware, kind and forgiving.
See what la luna has in store for you.
An intention with out action,
is like a seed without soil.
Grow your life beautiful by the light of the moon.
