Simple Ways to welcome in the New Moon:
*Smudging- This is a great way to enter in a new moon. This can be done by Palo Santo wood or a smudging stick. This will help clear negative energy and allow for positive changes to occur.
*Crystals- I love to surround myself with crystals all the time specially though when I am reflecting,mediating or practicing yoga,
*Essential Oils- Aromatherapy works wonders for me, You can diffuse oils or apply them topically(best with a carrier oil in a roller ball)
*Tea- You can even make your own loose leaf blends to customize your mood and goals.
*Moon Deck- I received a moon deck in a Subscription Box a while back and I love them. They include cards for all moon cycles and really help with reflection and planning rituals for the moon cycle.
*Bath Ritual- create a special bath blend with Epson salt and fresh herbs.flowers. This will also have an added bonus of magnesium from the Epson salt.
*Candles- Find some candles that appeal to your senses and use them while mediating. I have a current obsession with crystal and herbal/floral topped candles!
So for me an example of something I do is take a bath with special bath salts mixed with herbs. This helps me focus and relax. I apply essential oils after with a diluted roller ball. After I would use a smudging stick around the house. I usually take a break after that. Then I usually journal and focus on reflection from my moon deck. I light candles and surround my self with crystals while doing this as well. This is also a great time to sip on some herbal tea as well. As you can see everyone can fine tune how they want to welcome the moon. It is really such a wonderful way to take time out for yourself and really tune into yourself.
