● Cleanse your space. Sage is an herb that works with lunar energy and is extremely effective in cleansing negative energy. If you are working indoors, remember to open your windows so the energy has a place to escape. Take some time to cleanse the crown of your head and the bottoms of your feet, as these are the doors to our physical body. As you cleanse, notice the shift in your body as well as the energy of the space.
● Journal. In the Moon cycles, ask yourself what’s been serving you and what hasn’t been. Write in the present tense what you want to call in in the coming months. For example, if it is travel, you could write, “I am so grateful to be overlooking the Mediterranean Ocean and smelling the warm ocean breeze.” Speak as though it is already within you, because it is.
● Read your journal entries aloud. If you are in a group, read them to your trusted group. If you are alone, read them aloud so the Universe hears them loud and clear. Then thank the Moon for bringing to you what you have offered to her.
● Symbolically release these intentions. I like to keep my journal entry and revisit it throughout the month. Keep it in a sacred box or on your meditation altar, or tape it to your vanity mirror. Some sources say to burn your list in a candle’s flame following your ceremony. You’ll know what feels right to you in the moment.
