Namaste Well Wishers,
Have you ever made wishes at the time of the New Moon? It is a potent time to harness this powerful energy of new beginnings and plant seeds that you would like to see come to fruition in your life. You can call them wishes, goals, intentions – it is something that you intuitively know in your heart. Know that they will come true.
You will find your own personal, meaningful way to make your wishes and there are some things that are essential. First, an overall picture and then a summary of key points. Let’s take this upcoming example…
New Moon in Leo
Saturday, July 30th 2011
at 11:39 am PDT or 2:39 pm EDT.
Do you have a journal you’ve been saving to use for a worthy cause? Nice paper, favorite pen? Okay, just some paper and a pen? You’ll need to hand write your wishes – this is mandatory.
Where will you be at the time of the New Moon? Can you picture a quiet place where you’ll be able to take a few moments to be still? Light a candle if you like, incense too if that’s something you enjoy and sit quietly for a few moments. Be aware of your breath and notice the difference from when you first sat down to being in a more peaceful state.
This helps put you in a state where you are more receptive to hear what your heartfelt wishes are. When it feels right, write your wishes down. Write only up to 10 wishes.
Highly recommended is adding the words “I want to easily find” to your wishes. I’ve started adding “With ease . . .” before my wishes. It helps ease the changes you’ll see in your life. So you might word a wish for more money “I want to easily find prosperity in my life” as opposed to “I want to be rich.” They both lead to more money but the second example might happen because of unfavorable circumstances.
For extra potency you could focus on one theme in your life that is of greatest significance for you at this time (family, financial, health etc.) and make several of your 10 wishes on that one theme.
In the days leading up to the New Moon you might have had a chance to look over or think about some of the major themes from the sign that it is in – in this case, strengths/qualities you find in Leo. You may also want to work on self-improvement to remove some of the negative traits found in yourself and the Leo sign. For example, if you wanted to bring out your artistic, creative side and lift being bossy from your life you could include wishes about them in your 10 because these are traits found in the Leo sign and there is extra potency behind these wishes because this New Moon is in Leo.
Something to mention, speaking of bossiness, you might be well acquainted with someone in your life that is bossy, but you cannot make wishes to change something about another person! Instead you could make a wish for yourself to bring out your own leadership/decision making qualities or wish for a better understanding about a certain person or situation. See the difference?
For improvements in health, each New Moon offers a different area of the body that is ruled by the sign at the time of the New Moon. Leo rules the Heart and Spine so now is the perfect time for wishes to improve health in these areas.
Once you’ve finished writing your 10 wishes down, date it, roll up your paper with ribbon if you like and place it in a nice box or special place you have in mind. Know that these heartfelt wishes are on the way.
Key points to making wishes on the New Moon
1. Write wishes as near to the exact time of the New Moon as possible.
2. Hand write up to 10 wishes only.
3. Up to 8 hours after New Moon still potent time.
4. Up to 48 hours after – less potent time for wishes.
5. Write down heartfelt wishes only.
6. Don’t make wishes to change someone else.
7. Know that these wishes are on the way.
In New Moon Wishes Part 3 we will look more closely at the qualities of the Leo sun sign to to help tune in to these energies available to us. Then, at the time of the New Moon on Saturday, you can feel whether or not they’ll be added to your wishes.
Blessings on y(our) day! May we find time every day to appreciate the sacred within and without.
