As we welcome the new moon, we open the door to a realm of new possibilities and fresh beginnings. This phase encourages us to reflect, set intentions, and connect with our deepest desires. In this blog post, we’ll explore the energy of the new moon and I’ll guide you through a powerful new moon ritual for manifestation.
Understanding the Energy of the New Moon Phase:
The new moon phase symbolises a time of low energy, and is associated with winter and the menstrual phase of our cycles. While the moonlight is scarce, our connection to intuition is heightened. It’s a sacred time for introspection, retreat, and self-care practices. This is when we create space for rest and cooperation, aligning ourselves with the natural rhythms of life.
New Moon Ritual for Manifestation – Intention Setting Ritual Bath:
Setting intentions is like sowing the seeds of your future. It’s about defining the guiding principles aligned with your core values and personal boundaries. This new moon ritual for manifestation will help you set positive and present-tense intentions, paving the way for the life you desire.
You Will Need:
– Salts (e.g., pink Himalayan or Epsom)
– A crystal of your choice (e.g., rose for love or citrine for abundance)
– Essential oils (e.g., rose for love or basil for abundance)
– Candles (e.g., pink for love, green for abundance)
Instructions for the new moon ritual for manifestation:
- Fill your bathtub with warm water and add your chosen salts.
- Add a few drops of the essential oil that resonates with your intention.
- Light the candles and place the crystal within reach.
- Submerge yourself in the warm water, close your eyes, and enter a state of meditation to clear your mind.
- Allow your thoughts to drift towards your deepest desires. What are your intentions? What do you wish to call into your life, and what do you need to let go of?
- Envision your life as if these intentions were already true. Embrace the joy and all the positive emotions that arise.
- After your time in the water, grab your journal and jot down anything that surfaced during the ritual.

Why This New Moon Ritual Works:
This new moon ritual for manifestation harmonises with the natural energy of the phase, providing a sacred space for intention setting and reflection. The warm bath, combined with salts, essential oils, and candlelight, creates a sensory-rich environment that facilitates a deep connection with your inner self.
By immersing yourself in this ritual, you align your mind, body, and spirit with the powerful energy of the new moon. As you focus on what it is that you want to draw into your life, you are telling your brain what it is that is important to you. In turn, as you move through your life over the coming weeks and months, the brain will begin to filter out things that aren’t aligned with your intentions, and throw the things that are into high relief. This will ensure that opportunities that you otherwise might have missed are right there under your nose!
The new moon marks a time of rebirth and introspection. Embrace the opportunity to set intentions, release what no longer serves you, and create space for self-care. Through the new moon ritual for manifestation, you can harness the energy of this phase to manifest your deepest desires and cultivate a life in alignment with your true purpose. Remember, start small, build from the ground up, and allow the energy of the new moon to guide you on this transformative journey.
