Hello! Welcome to a very special post on how to manifest your dreams and align them with the moon’s energy. It can be a little confusing first learning the terminology, but with a little help, you’ll get the hang of it in no time! So, let’s start with why someone may want to manifest with the moon. It could be a number of reasons. Maybe you’re curious what it’s all about, maybe what you’ve already tried isn’t working, or maybe you have an eclectic spirit and are looking to expand on that. Whatever your reason may be, I hope this guide will help you on your journey. Time to dive in!
As with all things, your intention behind goal-setting matters. The ideas are limitless! But it’s important to want to manifest for the right reasons. Take a few moments to think about what you would like to call in to your life. I like to get a very clear picture in my mind by taking 5 minutes to meditate and clear out my mental static. Sometimes the goal is super clear, other times I need to fine tune the request.
Once you have your request crystal clear in your mind, it’s time to align!
The ideal time to call in your request is during the New Moon. This is because a new cycle is about to begin. Think of it as a fresh start. Fresh energy and new beginnings! A match made in heaven! I encourage you to make a ceremony out of it. New beginnings are a big deal, so it’s a wonderful idea to celebrate such an exciting time. Some like to participate in New Moon circles to share and support one another and gather with like-minded community. It truly sparks the feeling that something wonderful is about to happen.
After the New Moon comes the next phase, Waxing. I like to remember what this phase means by thinking of Mr. Miyagi’s “wax on, wax off” phrase. Wax on means building up. So, the Waxing Phase is building to full or the Full Moon. The Waxing phase is important because this is when your manifestation will start to take shape. It will begin to grow as the moon grows. This process takes time so be patient and trust that everything is working out best case scenario.
Then, it’s the Full Moon! A monumental moment for the moon and your progress. There will be lots of energy floating around. Try to tune in and see what it is exactly that you’re feeling. The Full Moon is an exciting, but also important time. Reflection during this phase is crucial in determining where you are in your manifestation or goal as the Full Moon is the halfway point. What did the Waxing Phase reveal? Were things going smoothly or were there challenges? What is your internal energy like? Keeping a journal is a great idea for this time. Full Moon ceremonies are also quite lovely. The most important part of this phase is decision-making. Depending on where you are in the process, you may wish to continue on with your goal. If that’s the case, say thank you and use the energy of the Full Moon to sustain you throughout your journey. If you are struggling and noticing signs that things may not be working out, then it’s time to release. Some like to write down on paper what they would like to release and then burn it in a well-controlled manner, like a bowl. Have water close by to extinguish persistent flames.
It’s important to note that you can practice the release portion even if things are working out. You may simply notice something weighing you down that you no longer wish to carry. This will allow you to go further with your goal without all the extra dead energy weight.
The next phase is the Waning Phase. I remember this by thinking of waning away or withering away. During this time, drastic change may take place. Your decision may be confirmed with unexpected blessings or lessons. Energy will begin to wane as well and you may find yourself losing steam as you near the finish line of meeting your goal. Persist through and manage energy levels by taking breaks as needed.
Finally, the New Moon appears once again and the cycle starts over. As you can see, this is why it’s important to embrace the pause and get very clear about what your intentions and goals are. If you have a long term goal, you simply chip away at it little by little utilizing the moon to aid you in your effort. Short-term goals allow you flexibility in calling in many requests one at a time. The entire moon cycle takes about 28 days or 4 weeks, so plan accordingly.
I hope this guide serves you well and gives you better understanding on how to Manifest with the Moon! You’ll be a goal-setting pro in no time! Let me know what you thought about this post or about the process in general. I’d love to get your feedback and hear what goals you have.
Until next time, be well.
