New moons mark beginnings and are the perfect time to go inward and set intention for any new project or idea. Lay the groundwork for what you want to manifest in the coming six months.

The time to say please, may I...

  • Basic energy: Independence, Originality, Progressive Ideas, Reformation, Universal love, Individualism

  • Element Association: Air

  • Suggested Ritual: Spell work for finding new ways to look at things, changing structures that are universally wrong; Spell work to find yourself as an individual; Learn math, science and astrology

  • Be Careful: Feeling detached

  • Clean and smoke cleanse:

    • Take a broom and get the energy moving.  In a counterclockwise motion, sweep from the top to the bottom of every wall, corner, nook and cranny. (You don’t have to make actual contact with the surfaces. Imagine all the trapped energies being swept out into the open. Take your broom and now sweep the floors, from the back of the house out to the front of the house until you sweep everything out of the front door.

    • Now you can smoke cleanse. Make sure to open every closet, every drawer, and every cabinet in the entire house. Also be sure to pull back curtains and open blinds so that windowsills are accessible. Make sure you can easily move around the whole house without bumping into anything or having to stop to open drawers or doors.

    • To begin the cleansing, light the incense, herbs, sage, sweetgrass, cedar, or Palo Santo, (Remember to keep a dish under the burning herbs to catch any ash.) If you are having problems keeping it lit, occasionally blow on it to keep the embers burning—you want to continue to coax the flame until you get a steady smoke.

    • It does not matter where you start smudging. If you are performing the ritual in your home, you can start at the front door and work your way around from there, or you can start from the backyard and work your way inside but always go in a counterclockwise direction. What is important is that you smoke cleanse every inch of the house. This includes closets, basements, every room, the basement, and the attic (if accessible). Start at the door frame of each room and then work your way inside the room and be sure to get smoke into every corner, window, and, of course, closet. Be sure to send smoke up to each corner of the ceiling and along the corners of the walls. After all, four corners are “cleansed” with smoke, go to the center of the room and make a clockwise circle of smoke. Complete all rooms. You may also want to blow smoke near the drawers and in the closets.

    • As you go through your home, workplace, or other residence, be sure to repeat a prayer, verse, or saying that you feel will empower you. The more empowered you feel, the more commanding your presence, and this will help in removing unwanted entities and energies. Speak to yourself, to God, to the universe, to Mother Earth, to a Deity or to the energy of life. You might ask for particular protection in certain rooms or for forgiveness and peace in other rooms. You might ask for those you love to be able to see themselves as they really are when you smoke cleanse mirrors; ask that you may see yourself as you are, too.

    • After you complete all rooms, open as many windows and exterior doors as is practical to let the smoke be purged for at least 20 to 45 minutes as this will help "blow away" all the negative energies that you just worked to break apart and disperse.

    • Now bring in the positive energy.  Use bells and/or singing bowls to raise the vibrations of the cleansed space. In a clockwise motion, go around your house or space using sound to bring in the positive vibes.

  • Burn some Root Chakra Incense or Sandalwood Rope Incense

  • Drink some Root Chakra Tea to ground yourself.

  • Anoint yourself with New Moon Oil– I personally like to take some oil on my fingertips and rub a little on my ankles to bring the new moon energy into my field of energy and bless me for where I travel, rub a little on my wrists to bless what I do, rub a little on the back of my ears to bless what I hear and rub a little on my temples and third eye to bless what I see.  


Carve and Light a candle

  • The Crystal Journey Reiki Energy Charged Power Candle was chosen for this New Moon Ritual to carve your intentions for bringing in power, success, new, successful endeavors and/or use to bolster positive feelings like independence, confidence, and healthy self-esteem. Envision the situation you are giving power to. Embrace the feeling you get thinking of the resolved situation and/or receiving exactly what you want. Take the candle and carve it while keeping your intentions in your mind’s eye. You can use a wooden stylus, dull knife, or other pointed carving tool. Please be careful! Start by carving something that binds the candle, and therefore binds the intention, like your subject’s name or a word that encompasses your intention, like power, progress, independence, balance, success or anything that resonates with you.

  • After that, begin to associate symbols with your intent. When you think of what you want your intention to accomplish, what words or pictures come to mind first? You may have symbols that are relevant and powerful for you. Carve them in, and make sure your lines are deep. Hold your intention in your mind as you carve, focusing on achieving your goal from the moment the tool touches the wax.

  • After you have finished carving the candle, it is time to anoint it with oil and embellish the symbols. I suggest wearing rubber gloves, but you don’t have to… thoroughly rub the surface of the candle with New Moon Oil. Use plenty of oil and be sure to rub it thoroughly into all the nooks and crannies created by your carving.

  • After this, pour the herb over the surface of the candle (be sure to set down some newspaper to make cleanup easier!) and rub it in. Be sure to get the herbs into the carved designs of the candle, to help them stand out. The oil will help adhere the herbs to the candle, creating a uniquely beautiful, powerful ritual tool that is ideally suited to your needs. If you wish, you can fume the candle's jar with incense, add a drop of honey to the bottom as an offering, or wash it with saltwater or spiritual water before placing the candle inside.

  • Carving, anointing, and embellishing a spell candle allows you to add more power to your spell with every step. Each part involves deep meditation on your goals and choosing the materials that are most closely aligned with what you want. Remember that the most important part is your INTENTIONS. Stay focused and enjoy!



Meditate with crystals

We included a Citrine Crystal to help encourage creativity and focus your thoughts.

There is no right or wrong way to meditate—just as there is no right or wrong crystal to use—everyone’s meditations are unique.

The best way to utilize your crystals during your meditation is to either hold them in your hands while meditating or lay them on your body, ideally so that they touch your skin.

If you are new to meditating with crystals, here is a simple daily meditation with crystals to use to help you get started:

  • First and foremost, cleanse the crystal you plan to use.  Crystals can pick up other people's energy, so you want to be sure you are working with clean energy.

  • It's best to set an intention ahead of time so you can charge the crystal with that energy.  For example, you can charge a hematite stone with grounding and protective energy.  It already vibrates at that frequency but by charging it, you are creating a bond with the stone for your own personal use.

  • Find a quiet space where you feel comfortable and relaxed.

  • Sit quietly with the crystal that you wish to use.

  • Pick up the crystal and hold it comfortably in your hands.

  • Close your eyes and quiet your mind, focusing your attention on your breathing.

  • Start to focus your awareness on the crystal, feeling the energy and subtle vibration of your crystal.

  • Let the crystal’s energy fill your mind and body.  Picture it vibrating and clearing out all negativity in your energy field.

  • Visualize your intention and picture your crystal being programmed with the "job" you are giving it.

  • RELAX your mind and your body. Sit with your crystals as long as you need.

  • When you are finished, and feel completely relaxed and at peace, ground yourself by seeing all aspects of your awareness spiraling back out of the crystal and into your body. Feel yourself connect with the Earth and your body.

  • Open your eyes and take a few deep breaths.

Now you may carry this stone with you and call on it when you need a boost of this encouraging energy.
