Living by the natural cycles of the Universe can help your life flow smoother. Just like a farmer plants seeds at certain times when he wants to harvest the fruits in a particular season, you can leverage the power of the moon phases for your benefit and well-being.
Whether you believe in astrology or not, you can’t help noticing that we are influenced by the moon. Just ask any emergency services personnel, like an ER doctor or paramedic.
When you align with the lunar phases, you can work with these natural forces to clarify what you want to manifest in your life until it comes to fruition.
A Moon Ritual Energizes Your Manifestations
Although the moon is powerful, manifestation is a process. Your intentions don’t just pop-up overnight. They simmer and your patience with their perfect timing is a necessary ingredient.
The new moon marks the start of a new lunar month and is a great time to create new habits, start a project, or reinvent yourself. Meanwhile, the full moon is the end of the lunar cycle and is best for recharging yourself, cleansing, and letting go of anything that no longer serves you.
Ideas For Your Moon Ritual
One of the best ways to connect with the moon and leverage its energy is a moon ritual. Here are some ideas for moon rituals to help you get the juices flowing. But feel free to create rituals that feel like home to your own soul.

|Set A Strong Intention |
Write down something you want to manifest clearly and specifically. Think: “Land a job that brings me joy, pays $80,000/year, and is within a 5-mile commute.” Bonus: Say your intention aloud.
Light It Up
Hold a candle in both hands. Close your eyes and “see” yourself obtaining your intention. Imagine that you are shooting that vision like a ray of light from your mind, down your arms, and into the candle. Light the candle, which has been energized with your intention. Give thanks and let it burn.
Make A Love Box
Decorate a small any way you wish. Cut pieces of paper small enough to fit inside of it. Then hold the box and close your eyes. Say a prayer, like: “Anything placed inside this box manifests into reality.” Then write down lists, intentions, visions, prayers, affirmation, quotes, anything that lifts your spirit. Place it inside the box.
|Take An Energizing Bath |
Run a hot bath. Pour in Epsom Salt and a few drops of essentials oils. Light a candle or turn on a Himalayan salt lamp. Place grounding stones around the tub. Play soft meditative music and relax.
Make A Gem Elixir
One of my favorite things to make during the full moon is “love water.” Learn how to make a gem elixir. The point is to fill your water with an affirmation such as “This water is full of self-love, appreciation, respect, and light.” Let the jug sit outside under the moonlight. Then drink this water over the next few days.
If you have a fire pit or know someone who does, Fire Cleansing is a satisfying and purifying ceremony. Light up the fire pit as you normally would. Throw in anything that you want to let go and state aloud that you release it. Have some common sense and do not throw into the fire anything flammable, or that can explode like glass.
