Really paying attention to our lives, what is working and what is not, is powerful. If we don't like things we can often put off what to do to change them if we can'g figure it out or ignore it. This allows default to come in and that often is not as gentle as slowing taking small actions toward changing things. I use the new moon to consciously see 30 days of life. I create intentions and write them down. I will burn the as a process of releasing out my ideas to the universe and perhaps do a ritual or sacred play around it. I give myself the moment to be very conscious that I am a creator and can shift what I want by taking the first action to think about my life with alone time.
I find this to be important self care. One of the Masters I learned from spoke how woman do not take enough alone time to really get to know themselves. Time to be with themselves, their emotions, their ideas and to reflect, review and know what is going on within. This intention practice supports us doing this. We care so for others and often don't know what is truly going on within. The emapathic gift gets us filled and tangled in others needs. We don't know us from them or our emotions versus theirs.
As creatures of the earth, our environment effects us. That is why the studies of astrology, numerology, the cycles of the moon offer us opportunities to work with what is going on around us. We are part of the macrocasm so we can use these larger cycles to support our daily world. Every month we have a new moon. We can use this cycle to build ideas with the new moon, as it grows and release things for the period that the moon wanes. Riding the larger cycle that effects the tides and water bodies of the earth. It also effects our body for we are atleast 70%. water. Makes sense.
Use the new moon, the first one was yesterday, as a time to look at what you want more of and put it down on paper. It could be goals or projects as well. I usually pick areas I want to expand, feelings or ideals where I want more abundance. This takes some reflection and review to notice what is and is not working. Rather than just review at birthdays or New Year, both good practices, a monthly review to intend things each month. I consider this a powerful practice in self care.
Time to review, reflect and put forth your direction to yourself and the universe. Powerful stuff! Great self care!
