New Moon — New Beginnings

Today is the New Moon, the time for new beginnings. It is the perfect time to plant the seeds of your future. I suggest you perform a New Moon Prosperity ritual every New Moon if possible. It is the most powerful if you do it within 24 hours after the New Moon.

As part of my process, I made some Blank Prosperity Checks to use to write checks from the Universe to myself. I made them look like the bank checks we are accustomed to seeing. There are three checks on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper. Here is what they look like: Continue reading

New Moon in Taurus — Prosperity Ritual

I have encouraged you to do a prosperity ritual at the New Moon for several years now. Today’s New Moon is in Taurus, the second house of the zodiac, traditionally the house of money, wealth, income, etc. It is a particularly powerful time to do a prosperity ritual and practice feeling prosperous.

As part of my process, I made some Blank Prosperity Checks to use to write checks from the Universe to myself. I made them look like the bank checks we are accustomed to seeing. There are three checks on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper. Here is what they look like: Continue reading

End of Year Ritual

Everybody is familiar with the New Year Rituals — making resolutions to lose weight, quit smoking, be a better person, get a better job, etc. But, it seems to me that the sudden turning to “what’s next” without taking care of “what’s past” causes old issues to come up again — soon after the shine has worn off the New Year.

Those old energies can be like troublesome relatives or acquaintances. The New Year arrives and you move to get away from the negative energy of those people. You are ready to start new and fresh, with a clean slate. You didn’t tell those people your new address.

Even though you didn’t tell them where you live, they find you anyway and cause the same old trouble — or — you meet new people who behave in the same ways. You just can’t seem to get rid of that energy for long because you did not take the time to deal with it before setting out on the new path.

I developed an End of Year Ritual to clean up the old energies before going forward into the New Year. I find it is very helpful in tying up the old loose ends that can trip you up like un-tied shoes. Click the link to read the ritual process. Continue reading

Beyond My Dreams – My Journey to the Crystal Palace

Back in 1984, I took a “Meditation” class. It was supposed to put us in touch with our Guidance. I had already been doing sitting meditation, having learned it at a Buddhist University near my house. I enjoyed the peace that came with it and I still practice it today.

This “new” meditation I was learning involved the instructor leading us on a guided meditation. She put on some calming music and had us close our eyes and relax as she gave us suggestions that took us on a “journey” to meet our Guides.

The journey was supposed to take us to our own special, private garden. I did make it to my garden by traveling in a beautiful boat that sailed down a calm river.

It was a lovely peaceful garden, but I was transported almost immediately away from the garden, through the air to a Crystal Palace. Continue reading

New Moon for Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day (Sunday, February 14) is the New Moon, the time for new beginnings. Since it is also associated with sweethearts and love, I suspect there will be even more people starting new relationships, getting engaged, etc., because of the influence of the new moon.

This is a particularly auspicious New Moon because it is also Chinese New Year!

It is the perfect time to plant the seeds of your future. I suggest you perform a New Moon Prosperity ritual every New Moon if possible. It is the most powerful if you do it within 24 hours after the New Moon. Obviously, you can make the emphasis of your New Moon ritual about relationships if you choose!

One of the best things you can do if you are wanting to manifest more is to be grateful for what you have. The act of sincere gratitude, appreciation and thanks focuses your attention on your blessings and bounty. As you know by now, you get more of what you focus upon.

As part of my process, I made some Blank Prosperity Checks to use to write checks from the Universe to myself. I made them look like the bank checks we are accustomed to seeing. There are three checks on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper. Here is what they look like: Continue reading

New Moon Eclipse — Gratitude Ritual

Today is the New Moon, the time for new beginnings. There is also an Annular Solar Eclipse today. Eclipses bring change. New beginnings are a form of change. The eclipse should add more power and energy to changes and rituals.

It is the perfect time to plant the seeds of your future. I suggest you perform a New Moon Prosperity ritual every New Moon if possible. It is the most powerful if you do it within 24 hours after the New Moon.

Happy Winter Solstice – Coming Monday

The Winter Solstice (in the Northern Hemisphere, where I live) will be day-after-tomorrow — Monday, December 21, 2009.

I always look forward to the Winter Solstice. Partially because the next day is the beginning of daylight getting longer. I know we must always allow ourselves to go through the darkness as part of surrendering our resistance to what is.

For me it is that period of darkness we all go through before the dawn — even more so because the Sun is transiting my 12th House, activating all of that “hidden” energy. The Sun moves into my 1st House on December 25 each year. So for me, getting to the Winter Solstice and a few days later to Christmas Day feels like awakening from the darkness.

Since it occurs only 10 days before the new calendar year, I often think of the Winter Solstice as the beginning of the end — of the year. I love knowing more daylight is coming. I breathe a sigh of relief every year when the Sun moves into my first house to begin the new Solar Journey through my life. And then, just a few days later, the new calendar year begins, bringing (at least psychologically) a sense of renewal and a chance for new beginnings. Hence the plethora of New Years Resolutions.

I know it is an important day in Wicca but I am not that familiar with Wiccan beliefs so I don’t know how or why they honor the Solstice. (To be fair, I am not very familiar with Christianity, Islam, Hinduism or Buddhism either. I’ve never felt comfortable with organized religion.)

This is a nice song called “The Winter Solstice Song” by Lisa Thiel. I hope you enjoy it and that you enjoy the Winter Solstice.
