The New Moon is a perfect time to set forth new intentions and goals for the month, or even long ranging goals that will take years to accomplish. Whatever the desire, you can use this energy to really empower the seeds you plant.
There really isn't any right or wrong way to do this, but here are some ideas on how you can organize your thoughts and create practical as well as magical ways in accomplishing your goals.
DREAM OR VISION BOARD
The title itself is pretty self-explanatory. You can cut out images from a magazine of the places you want to travel, the items you want to buy, or the career you wish to obtain. Whatever it is that your heart sings for, you can create a visual dream board and place it in plain sight for you to see every day, to remember before you start you morning what it is that you are working for. This will help keep you inspired, motivated, and driven to make your dreams come true.
MAKE A TIMELINE
Make a list of all you want to accomplish and form it into a timeline. You can do this on a white board next to your dream board and really set the intentions and get the wheels turning in terms of giving yourself timelines to obtain what you desire. Be logical and realistic - don't give yourself impossible goals to obtain in a short amount of time and set yourself up for failure. This will take a lot of planning and mediation. Which is a timeline is good to really consider the steps you need to get from point A, B, C, and etc.
WRITE IT OUT
Write a short story, or a scree play in the present tense of what your goals and dreams are. Place yourself exactly where you want to be, living the life you dream of. Feel it as you write your dreams, and set those intentions forth.
You can also write a letter to yourself of what you want to bring forth into your life - or even address it to the Universe as your prayer letter.
WRITE A CHECK TO YOURSELF
This is a great way for those seeking money to attract it. Write a check to yourself, for whatever amount of money you need and focus on it daily. You will open yourself up to opportunities to make money, or to align yourself with ways to obtain the money you need. Its as simple as applying the Law of Attraction.
Use your candles, crystals and whatever other magical tools you feel connected to and create a ritual that asks your guides, Gods, Goddesses and angels to bring forth your desires. Under the New Moon preform your ritual and remain connected to your desires throughout the month. You can even stretch your ritual to weekly, or even nightly as to create a sort of affirmation to go along with it.
As simple manifestation ritual can be done with a clear quartz crystal and a piece of paper. Simply write out what you are wanting to manifest, then place the paper in a safe place and put a clear quartz crystal that has been charged with your intentions on top of it. Simply keep connected in your mind of what you desire, or read the letter from time to time, and watch as your goals begin to manifest.
CREATE A CRYSTAL GRID
This is something I have done and feel has worked best amongst all I have tried in the past - it is also a great tool to add into other ways of using the Law of Attraction or Ritual Magic.
A crystal Grid is simple to make, it is just coming across the right crystals which might be a challenge to some. You need to ensure the crystals you are using are aligned with you are trying to manifest. For example, if you need money you may use citrine, moss agate, Labradorite, green aventurine, emerald, etc. You want to place your larger crystal in the center as your generator or energy amplifier, and then from there you can place your other stones in geometrical pattern all connecting to the other. As you do this, meditate on what you are trying to manifest, then sit with your grid and place your hands over top, feeling the vibrational energy from the gemstones and focus on your goals and dreams.
