Under the new moon, you can manifest what you desire, and I am constantly thriving to be a better person and grow from the person I used to be.
Like many, I've faced trauma and experiences that have caused triggers in me for years. I've done the shadow work and grown from it all, but there are times when I fall back into my old habits and triggers.
When these moments happen, I have to remind myself that we are all human and not perfect. Although I feel like I've taken a few steps back, I'm still growing from within because I've taken the time to acknowledge this.
A few weeks ago, a new moon was coming, and I didn't feel like my best self. I was triggered, stressed, and on edge. I kept pulling the Devil card in my spreads, and I knew it was time for me to face my shadows again.
So, under the new moon, I decided to take a new moon bath, and at that moment, I came up with this ritual. I knew it was special because the number 5 just came to me when I came up with it. The number 555 signifies that significant change is imminent, and I knew I had to share it with y'all.
After finishing this new moon ritual felt like I had released everything that was weighing on me, and I felt like a new me. I hope this ritual does the same for you.
New moon, new you ritual essentials
These are my suggestions for products, but it's up to you what you want to use. I love this bath ritual because I get tense in my shoulders, and my knees, calves, and feet are constantly sore.
Cleansing Stick (I use Palo Santo or Blue Sage)
The Magick Shoppe candle of the new moon
New Moon, New You
Start a warm bath and pop in your bath bomb.
Open a window in your bathroom or the room nearest to you.
Light the candle of the new moon and place it in a safe space in the bathroom.
Light your cleansing stick and say 'goodbye' to the things that no longer serve you (ex: anxiety, low self-esteem, materialism, impatience).
After you are done saying goodbye to the things that no longer serve, you say 'hello' to the new stuff you want to manifest in your life. (ex: rest, going with the flow, kindness, love, doing what makes you happy).
Once you are done, say this:
Under the new moon, I am brand new. I am not the same person I was five years ago, five months ago, and now 5 seconds ago. This is my new beginning. This is my rebirth.
Once you say that, lay underwater, come back up, and do the 4 7 8 breathing technique five times.
Cleanse yourself by scrubbing bath salts on your areas of tension.
Relax while listening to music that heals you; you may end your bath when you are ready.
*Added bonus I use Beyond Wellness’ Menthol Massage Lotion on the tense and sore parts of my body.
You are reborn and you are now new!
