"New Moon On Monday...and a fire dance through the night..."

The old Duran Duran song keeps echoing through my mind today as a reminder of the glorious new moon that will be rising tonight.  If you are unfamiliar with working with lunar energy, the new moon is a great time for new beginnings. If you are a surfer, you will know that the new moon and the full moon both affect the ocean waves, making them much larger than the half or quarter moons do.  And since our bodies are comprised of over 80% water, think about how the moon affects each of us as individuals and the lives of the people around us.  It's not just 'smoke and mirrors'...there is energy there if you are open minded enough to access it. Frankly put, if you actively incorporate lunar energy into your life and enhance the energy of what you would like to attract or repel based upon sustained mental focus and intention, you can change your life in ways you have never imagined.

It is theorized that the days following the new moon as it waxes attracts energy to us and this energy can be altered and enhanced by the power of our own intentions.  (If you would like some clarification on how our intentions affect our bodies and our lives, please read the following article on Dr. Emoto's study on Intentions in Water by clicking here.)  Therefore, the night or day of the new moon is great for setting our intentions on what we would like to attract to our bodies and our lives in the upcoming weeks.  It is great for launching new ideas and projects.

After the new moon, the moon waxes and grows each day and the energy increases until it reaches it's peak at the full moon.  At the full moon the energy is most powerful, when we can feel that need for release in our bodies and our lives. Ever wonder why people seem to go 'looney' on the full moon?  The word lunatic comes from the latin roots of the word luna, meaning moon.  It is because of this buildup of energy that effects us at the physical level, that is why historically people have always acted out more on the nights of the full moon.  We intuitively know we need to release some of this intense energy that has been building up inside us.  Even if they aren't consciously aware of it, the moon affects us, just as it does the tides.

Every day after the full moon the energy shifts again, bringing that release and closure to certain things within our lives.  The moon wanes and gets smaller, shrinking with each passing day until it is 'reborn' again at the next new moon, allowing us to release & repel that which does not serve us and bring completion to certain cycles in our lives.  So working with lunar energy following the full moon is great for release, closure, purification, cleansings, clearings, banishings, endings...things you would like to remove or purge from your life. 

So now that you are aware of how the moon affects not just the tides, but our bodies and our lives you are probably wondering how you can work with this powerful energy!  I personally keep a lunar journal and every new moon I jot down ideas for projects and things I would like to start or invoke into my life.  The physical act of writing down what I would like to attract to me as well as projects I would like to start helps me ground my 'air' thought ideas into the physical and brings those concepts one step closer to manifesting in my own life.

As I write, I consciously focus on being as descriptive and detailed as I can, making the concept as real as possible in my mind's eye because the more real you make it in your mind, the more real this energy becomes.  Remember we're working with energy here.  In the days following the new moon, I work towards taking steps in actualizing those new moon dreams.  Physical action brings movement to the energy of your intentions and increases it's power and therefore brings you much closer to manifesting your dreams, wishes, hopes and desires.  Basically, you need to meet the universe halfway.  Simply sitting on the couch wishing and hoping without the application of movement is not going to invite new moon blessings or the blessings of the universe.  It's much like planting a seed.  You need to water the seed in order for it to bloom and grow in the manner you desire.  By the time the full moon arrives, I review my progress and focus on that which is blocking my success and I work on removing those obstacles from my path - especially if I am the one that is in my own way!

So get started on manifesting your dreams today by thinking and writing about what you would like to attract into your life using the power of today's new moon to guide and assist you on your journey.**

**Special note - the moon goes void of course on March 15th at 5:01pm PST to 11:33pm PST so please do your dreaming before or after these times.  When the moon is void of course there are delays, false starts, and unexpected issues....
