February’s New Moon is on the horizon, making it’s approach to our skies on February 4th. I don’t know about you, but I wanna see manifesting in my life every month in 2019! Wouldn’t it be great to see your intentions actually materialize?
When I’m working with the New Moon, I’m gathering herbs, candles, and crystals (along with some anointing ritual oils) to bring some spark to my craft. I just happen to believe that incorporating the elements into my spiritual practice makes all the difference.
One year when we were visiting Palm Springs I set some intentions to find something very specific for my practice. Whenever we arrive at one of our villas, I always set up a crystal grid and smudge. As I was meditating in our villa, I visualized a small round dish, made of clay. I pulled out some paper and anointed my pen and began writing down exactly what I was looking for. I wanted a small round clay dish, but I needed it to be made by a woman artist who was devoted to her craft. I included my budget, $5. My intuition began to flow as I visualized this little hand made treasure. I repeated the description out loud three times and explained exactly how I wanted to find it and where. At the very end of this intention setting I felt a further nudge from Spirit…. I drew a heart on the paper. I wrapped it into a small square and placed it in my purse.
Later that night, at the street fair…I found a pottery vendor…a female…an artist devoted to her craft…and a box of small clay treasures. I gently sorted through the box and found it! A small clay dish, hand made by a devoted female crafter…and as I turned it over, BEHOLD! I saw a small heart carved into the bottom. The heart is part of her signature.
I was so ecstatic about this spectacular manifestation that I called my husband over. I called the woman over and showed her my list! I explained about how I set my intentions and told her exactly what I was searching for and showed her the small clay treasure I found at HER booth! She was so excited and asked if she could have my intention paper. Of course!
It was such a magical night for both us us. The Universe gave us both the confirmation that magic is real. There really is power in the pen.
Sometimes I have very specific crystals I wanna work with, depending on what the intention is for. But I also have some crystals that are an all-around smart choice for anyone to work with, under the New Moon.
Crystals for New Moon Manifesting
When the moon is dark and the night is deep, I reach for Black Moonstone.
Black Moonstone is the premiere crystal to have take center stage on your New Moon altar. It’s symbolism is to empower you in all new things. This is the birth place of all new ideas and inspiration. I associate Black Moonstone with the Goddess, Morrigan. It’s secretive energy teaches us the mysteries of this ancient Goddess. As much as we all would love to say we work in all love and light, sometimes love requires the kind of strength The Morrigan can offer us. It can be dark, mysterious, and empowering. The energy we receive and manifest from working with Black Moonstone is the kind of energy that gives us the strength to be vocal leaders for equality for women.
Another magical treasure I sometimes work with under the New Moon is Labradorite, especially in sphere form.
Labradorite has been worked with by magic practitioners for support for the Heart, Third Eye, and Crown Chakras. It teaches us to allow our inner magic to be brought into the light to sparkle radiance in our lives. Labradorite has been partnered with healers to expand awareness of the heart and mind, develop psychic skills, and support for lucid dreaming. This makes Labradorite an astounding choice when setting intentions.
One last recommendation is to work with my Intuition Kit, curated to inspire your intuitive process.
Any time I work with magical intentions, I enlarge my borders to visualize what else I’m needing. When it comes to intuition, tunnel vision can severely limit our visionary journey. This is why I include several stones in this kit for you to work with. This kit is designed to help you connect with others (including spirit guides or angels) with an intuitive communication style.
After manifesting that scared little dish, I wished for all my loved ones to be able to manifest like that! We gather together in an intimate group on Facebook to seek wisdom, counsel, and guidance for our magical workings. I hope you’ll join us there and share your manifestation successes with us. *Mention this article when you join and get a special discount code for this upcoming New Moon.
