NEW MOON PHASE: INSPIRATION FOR CREATIVE RENEWAL
The New Moon phase in our Lunar cycle has special significance . . . the phase itself can last over a 2 day period . . . with the moon being exactly new after the start of the phase.
In our inner realms the significance and symbolism is a death and rebirth . . . and it can affect us as a crisis of consciousness.
These are the rhythms:
JUST BEFORE THE NEW MOON WE COME OUT OF THE SEEDING PHASE . . . WE’RE ENTERING THE SPROUTING PHASE OF THE NEW CYCLE . . . AND WE ENTER A 7 DAY INSPIRATIONAL QUARTER PHASE.
Just before the New Moon our energy has the quality of surrender . . . and we need to get playful. We can go into a kind of crisis of consciousness and a need for inner and physical purging. It’s a letting go, an emptying for the new theme to be created . . . we become the clear vessel.
Just before the Moon is exactly new: We “empty the cup” in practice dedication | Nothing more can fill us up [meaning new inspiration] until we’ve become the clear vessel energetically
We surrender! Practice in Surrender to the Flow in Savasana . . . and . . . New Moon 24 Hour De-tox with Alkaline Water: This is intended for inner balance and to align with our Lunar tidal forces, our liquid planet and our own liquid body. Follow the guidance closely: we start 12 hours before New Moon and you need 8 hours for the mixture to infuse, so then you need planning and organising time prior: continue for 12 hours after Moon is exactly new.
JUST AFTER THE NEW MOON WE ENTER THE SPROUTING PHASE AND THIS IS THE TIME FOR EXPRESSING A NEW THEME . . . AND A NEW IDEA OR CONCEPT CAN SPROUT . . .
Just after the Moon is new: Centering Preparation for Snake Goddess Mudra | Livingness Rising Meditation | New Moon phase. During New Moon phase we use deep inner listening for the new ideas that will inspire creative change in our lives this week. This is the preparation in meditation.
Goddess Naga Mudra Practice | For Deep Inner Questioning in New Moon Phase | The Naga Snake Goddess Mudra is the practice of asking questions for deep insight . . . to gain guidance on what is best for you, solutions and options. To gain the powerful inspirations from our new Lunar cycle at New Moon, we use the Naga Mudra Snake Goddess practice just AFTER New Moon and during the 2 days following.
Deep Inner Listening | For What Your Heart Really Wants | Your heart needs to learn to trust you . . . show your heart you are worthy of your Bliss by listening deeply. We practice deep inner listening in the New Moon inspiration phase of our Lunar cycle, to listen for the way forward your heart wants as we are receptive to Divine energies inspiring us. Practice with Heart Chakra Breathing.
Connect with the Sky Goddess | Just For One Day | New Moon to First Quarter Flow | A Practice in Connecting with the Sky Goddess . . . For one day, act as if you and the Sky Goddess are in constant contact. Give birth to the children of your creative imagination, nurture your own creative mystery. [You can also take this practice as one of my Zen teachings here on the website]
A U M OM Mantra Chanting | Teaching and Practice | New Moon to First Quarter lunar phase. This is the teaching and the practice of the sound which makes up the OM Mantra: A U M. I teach you the breathing and sounds and then we practice the chanting of the Mantra. Mantra is one of our gateways to Consciousness, with the vibration harmonising us with the Universe.
