Intention Setting Rituals

An intention setting ritual can be done just after the New Moon to focus energy into your intentions. (The next new moon as of this writing is May 30, 2022, at 7:29 am EDT.)

An intention is a guiding principle with which to live by. Your intentions should define how you want to feel, the things you would like to experience and the personal qualities and strengths you want to develop. 

Think about your core values and the kind of life you want to live. Intentions should be written in the present tense and in a positive form. 

For example, instead of saying, “I want to stop eating so much junk food,” you could say, “I feel healthy and vital.” The first one is a goal, but the second is the intention (the why) behind the goal.

This is just a suggestion. It’s important to always be open to your own intuition to create a variation that feels right for you.

Begin by cleansing your sacred space – this can be done by smoke purification or lightly spraying with moon water or smudge spray

Center yourself in any way that feels comfortable – deep breathing, free drawing, chanting, meditating or using singing bowls.

Focus on formulating your intentions. What do you truly want from your life? Keep your intentions positive and motivating. You can also use oracle cards to get insight into what it is you truly desire.

Light a candle, then write each of your intentions on a separate piece of paper. Say each one aloud, then spend a few minutes visualizing that it has already manifested. 

Hold the intention in your mind and do any any of the following:

– Create a crystal grid around it

– Burn it in a fireproof container

– Bury it in soil (write your intention on seeded paper)

– Place it in a bowl of water

When you are done with all of them, blow out the candle and thank the universe in advance for manifesting your intentions.

Understanding the Phases of the Moon

Moon cycles have been honored by many different civilizations throughout the world for centuries.

The Moon holds tremendous power for manifestation in every area of life.

Here is your guide to understanding the meaning of the new moon and full moon, which will help strengthen your connection to the cosmos — and bring your dreams to life.

New Moon
The new moon occurs when the moon is physically positioned between Earth and the sun. The three are in approximate alignment, and the entire illuminated portion of the moon is on its back side. Think of this phase as a clean slate, or a new beginning.

How to Harness the New Moon
This is a great time to begin new projects and bring ideas to life. Acknowledge your intentions and draw out new plans and ideas. Breathe new life into any area you may feel stuck. Cleanse your home with sage, take an epsom salt bath, let go of the past.

Watch for opportunities and signs over the next moon cycle. Get excited, because your world is about to expand.

Full Moon
At a full moon, Earth, the moon and the sun are in approximate alignment — just like the new moon — but in this phase, the moon is on the opposite side of Earth, so the sunlit part of the moon is facing us. The shadowed portion is hidden from view.

Think of the full moon as a sealing of your intentions and plans. With every ending comes a giant release, which is exactly what the energy of the full moon is about.

How to Harness the Full Moon
When the moon is full, its strong gravitational pull on Earth makes for a time of high creative energy and incredibly powerful intuitive breakthroughs.

Now is the time to write all the things you wish to release. Burn the piece of paper, and move into gratitude. Give thanks for all you have and all that is the come.

Here’s where you get to actually trust this is happening. Burn some herbs and let your fears evaporate with the smoke. Now is also the optimal time to cleanse your crystals by placing them in the moonlight.

The full moon also brings heightened energy and emotions. Get grounded – feet in the dirt. Pay attention to your body and nourish it.

Get outside at night and let the light of the moon shine on you.

What intentions will you set?
When you get in tune with the moon, you ultimately live more in sync with nature. And that’s when magic happens.

Channel the moon’s energy. Get under that glow and set intentions. Align your life with a higher power.

The New Moon arrives on April 11 and brings motivation and high energy.

Now is the time to focus on conquering goals.
