Hello gorgeous one, welcome to the New Moon Bowl Ritual.
Is it challenging? Is it expensive? Do you need to go buy a shed ton of stuff? Heck No! All it requires is a bowl you like, 14 little rocks and your intention.
Now with regards to these 14 rocks, they don’t have to be crystals, or blessed by a guru. These little rocks can be from the beach, the park, a gravelled yard – it doesn’t matter, it’s all about the intention you set with them. Mine are from the beach and they are different sizes and different colours.
So a brief recap. The New Moon sets the energy for the month, in otherwords until the next New Moon. So this is delicious strong energy that waxes and wanes to support you in what you want to attract more of, manifest or create in your life.
Have you ever done New Moon Wishes before? If you haven’t, I have a quick and dirty guide on how to write your 10 New Moon Wishes. My suggestion to you is to read it, write your Wishes and then look for a theme throughout all of them, and there will be one. Now what do I mean by a theme? If you review your wishes and they are all related to money for example, that is a theme. If they are related to attracting love into your life – theme. If they are about having more ease, support in your life – theme.
So if it were money for example that you had mainly written about then that could be encapsulated as “I easily and attract more wealth and abundance into my life from known and unknown sources.”
On the New Moon, write your wishes out, find the theme, come up with your intention statement (such as the example above that embodies your theme for you). Then every day from New Moon to Full Moon, and I highly suggest in the morning if that works for you, take one of your rocks, say your intention outloud and put the rock in the bowl. Now you may be asking “Why?”
As the New Moon blooms she waxes until the Full Moon, in other words she gets bigger and stronger. So every day you see your intention, as you put a rock in the bowl getting stronger and coming into existence for you. Then as the moon hits her glorious fullness you start to take a rock out of the bowl each morning and see your intention being brought into being and ready to harvest. Does that make sense?
But Jenn why can’t I just write my New Moon wishes down? You most certainly can of course! However, often I see people write them down and then within two days they have forgotten what they were. Thus, this lovely Ritual takes the theme of your New Moon wishes and makes it physical and a daily practice. And if you remember:- ritual takes an idea, thought or emotion and gives it a physical form in the world. ritual allows your body, your cells, you essence to understand your intention.
I highly invite you to try it because it is a delicious ritual and really ramps up the energy of your intention. Let me know how this works for you, try it for 2 months straight.
I would also love to hear what type of rocks you picked and which bowl!
