New Moon Ceremony: 18th/19th August 2020
!Saludos desde España! Hello from Spain guys!
How's life? holidays? working? I'll be travelling on the new moon this time so to avoid last minute logistic issues (as it happened in the last full moon) I'm preparing this ceremony much earlier than usual. But as I'm writing this I know that I might not finish it in one go. So lets the flow begin!.
Lately, I have found myself wondering about my journey and how I live my life. And the Past has come back to the Present with the intention to create a new "possible" Future. And I can tell you, that I wasn't planning none of it.
I can also assure you that is bringing some challenging thoughts and emotions and I'm working on them, as the gift that they are. Even if they make me feel very uncomfortable at times. Through this process my focus is to be true to myself, and push my self limitations. So during the Lion's Gate (8th of August) I took the step to explore a relationship from the past, even do it feels risky, out of my reach and with the potential to create some emotional turmoil in my very happy beautiful life. When this opportunity landed on my doorstep, all I could think of was: Why would I risk my happy Universe to invite a potential source of "destruction"?. Why would I invite "change" in to my perfect world?. We both know that a new opportunity or situation is just a new experience. Neither good nor bad. But our fear, instinct of self-preservation and limiting beliefs can play amazing tricks. And even do, you know it in your head you need to make peace with your heart so your emotions doesn't sabotage the experience.
So the question is quite simple and reasonable: Why would I put my happiness in jeopardy. For one simple reason: my happiness has become my comfort zone.
Interesting? I hope so! I find it fascinating!. The reality is quite simple: there is no growth in a permanent status quo and happiness is a way of being; not a temporary emotion. Emotions come and go unless we create attachments and a sense of identity around them. The truth is that "you feel sad" but "sad" doesn't make you = "you are not sad". Yet, social conditioning designed to control the masses through disempowering makes believe, think and act accordingly. Nothing can "make you" unless you allow it, even past experiences.
The past is a subjective perception of our ego. We can choose to perceive ourselves like victims or victors without changing an event but the point of view = creating a different story of the "Self". This simple but complex concept give us the power to change the past and set us free. I would encourage you o explore it in your own terms at your own pace.
But I think we can all agree that only through freedom we can create a new bigger and better reality. And that is why is so important to heal the past. We have spent nearly six months doing a lot of release. It might even sound monotone. But we need to take showers and mop the floors in the same way we need to clean up our emotional and mental health. Is part of our self maintenance. And the reason why we meet here every New and Full moon.
For this Ceremony I want to change something: our Pre-Ceremony. But if you feel you need to follow the usual one, or make your own, or mix and match different aspects... go for it! This is your process, your path, your choice.
I have also cast an affirmation/spell which is something we haven't done before, so I hope you enjoy it. Our aim this New Moon is to channel the creative force of Leo to move through the past, acting in the present, creating a future that expresses our soul purpose and right to be "happy".
So what do you think if we just get on with it?.
You can use the Shamanic Drumming Journey (15 minutes) from Martin Duffy (Shamanism Ireland) or some inspiring music to suit your mood. So if you want to dance go for it. If you want to connect in a more meditative state you can use some relaxation music or even a guided meditation.
For this pre-ceremony we will claim our throne like the Lion King but from our female energy. Not as a consort but as the queens of our own Universe. So as a queen or king we will get ready to be crowned in a ceremony. We will do the same. We will bathe, dress and decorate our beauty with beautiful things that express our taste. So get ready to dress up ladies!
There is only one requirement: incorporate the color yellow in your clothe, makeup or flowers for your room. But go for any other ideas you might have. The yellow color, represents our will power and resinates with the Leo energy.
Take your time with this process, play some music, get ready at your own pace. Use scents, perfumes, incense, have a nice meal, tea or drink (but mind the alcohol during ceremonies... please) and just enjoy your own company or share this process with your loved ones.
Remember the regal presence of the lion. You are the lion. You are a queen and you are claiming your crown.
So, once you are ready we will initiate our ceremony. For this, we need 3 yellow candles. Each candle represents the Past, Present and Future. If you want to release and/or bring something into your life you can write it in the candle. But remember you need to transmute. So if you bring something, you need to let go of something else.
If you are unsure about what you are asking, the phrasing, etc... reach out. I'll be happy to help. But no matter what, you "must" include written in paper with your candles:
“For the good of all concerned and with no strings attached”
Note: If you can use yellow paper, even better!
New moon affirmation/spell:
I accept and embrace my light, sharing it with the whole Universe, to be the change I want to see in the world.
I claim my power to be a living example of my soul expression as an act of love towards all living things and to be a guiding hand of the Mother, creator of all things.
I allow myself to connect with each moment without fear of the Past or anticipation of the Future, being a creator in the Present.
Right here, Right now I claim my crown as the creator that I am and I claim my new beginning in this new Moon with the guidance of Leo.
For the good of all concerned and with no strings attached.
- Repeat 3 times as you light each candle: Past - Present - Future.
- Burn the candles within 3 days (a bit each day would be ideal).
Add on: you can use the vibration of a singing bowl or high vibration music as a background while you recite your affirmation/spell.
I hope you enjoy this process and make it your own. Add, adapt and follow your rhythm. For the good of all concerned and with no strings attached.
And with this last remark we finish our ceremony offering our gratitude to the Universe and the circle.
Feel free to share the love in the WhatsApp group or privately. But don't underestimate the power of gratitude and voicing your expression. Can move mountains.
Be awesome, embrace all that you are and thanks for taking part in this Ceremony.
Love you all,
Suggestion: This article about how to create a sacred space might be handy ;)
PS: I’ll be putting your names down in my list to connect us all and use the channel to increase the energy of transmutation. This is not a shopping list: I need a new car, or my boyfriend is an asshole make him nice, or my boss is a bitch just turn her into a teddy bear… no my dears… that’s not how it works! Hahahaha but seriously we are not here to do dark magick, we don’t ask for others only for us and within us. But just in case, I bound the circle for the good of all concerned and with no strings attached.
If any of you don’t want their name to be added to my list, just shout! Text me, call me, let me know please. Your individuality and empowerment will always be honoured and respected. Always :)
