7 Surprises When It Comes to Manifesting with the Moon
Manifesting with the moon can lead to a surprising journey. You wouldn’t think that starting a ritual would become easy or stick. Normally it takes determination and dedication which requires you to be totally tuned in and mildly obsessed, But rituals can also fall away easily. Like the whole New Years eve resolution commitments.
How many have slipped away from you?
As humans we are a fickle bunch. We get disappointed with our results and give up too easily. Even on the very things we desire the most. Since I started manifesting with the Moon Cycles, somewhat haphazardly, I have learned quite a lot about cycles and rhythms.
They happen all the time! Our behaviors and habits run in cycles. Our motivation has to have a rhythm. And our mind thinks in cycles as well, somewhat on a continuous loop. It is in our best interest to create a steady low pulsing rhythm for our mind that is focused on our truest desires. And that is why Moon Manifesting will change your life.
Moon Manifesting gives us time for quiet reflection and to observe the divine within us. We crave the opportunity to see what the universe has in store, but it is truly in our own hands to receive the things we seek.
Here is what I have learned that surprised me about manifesting with the moon.
1. Bonding with the Natural Rhythm of Life
I embodied the fact that I was a part of the universe, although just a speck upon this planet. It put me in touch with the ebb and flow of life. I understood more about how energy strengthens and fades within the moon cycle and within my own emotions. There are periods during the moon cycle that my emotions and commitments are stronger and times when it is less intense. This helped me create more balance in my life and become observant of the space of time in a month.
2. Things Must Die for New Things to Live
Moon cycles support the life cycles of many plants and creatures. Just like the cycle of life, our manifesting depends on letting old practices, beliefs and thought patterns die to allow the birth of new perspectives. If we want to manifest something we have never had or done, we need to make space for it and remove the old obstacles that have been holding us back. The full moon is a perfect time for reflection, forgiveness and acceptance before we create something new.
3. Ancestral practice
I had been on the spiritual path for years, yet when It came to my ancestral ties, I never thought much about them when it came to manifesting. My moon practice had a major shift in the beginning that enlightened me to the fact that if I made changes in my life it was not only for me, it was also for all my ancestors who had the same desires and struggles. I realized how important it was to call upon my ancestors for understanding and support in how certain patterns have played out In our family history.
This allowed for a practice of healing our family for the past and future.
4. Facing Challenges and Finding Solutions
I shouldn’t have been surprised that looking at challenges and finding solutions would be a major player in manifesting. It is the reason after all that I started the journey. My moon ritual enabled me to look fully at my life twice a month and hone in on what was working and not working. There was no more pushing things to the side. It gave me a chance to gently push myself further than I had before either searching for new things to support my desires or realize that they actually were something I no longer wanted. I gained clarity on a regular basis.
5. Commitment to Myself
Twice a month I had a formal commitment to myself, its like a twice a month date with destiny highlighted with a reminder in the Sky! Everything we do takes commitment. As a sober woman I have a commitment not to drink on a daily basis. If I want my life to have meaning I better be committing to things that are going to bring me spiritual and emotional growth. My ritual provides me with a chance to constantly recommit to the life I want to lead as a sober woman.
Who doesn’t need a fresh start once in a while? When I started this monthly ritual it gave me the opportunity to have a fresh start every new moon and full moon. At the new moon it has been a chance to consider new avenues to pursue. Where do I want to go next, what am I lusting to try? The full moon has provided me with fresh starts in how I look at relationships and moving past trauma’s and painful memories. I use Ho’Oponopono in my practice so I clear my memories and spiritual vessel for new energy. I always feel lighter and brighter in my energy and outlook after ritual.
7. Connection and Balance
This moon practice has me feeling more connected to people, my guides and ancestors acknowledging our shared experiences and energies. It has given me the chance to balance my energy with others and master a more even exchange and flow. Leading up to new moon I’ve learned to soften and harness my feminine yin energy and as the new moon energy turns masculine and more yang closer to the full moon I’ve found a stronger energy within for connection to work more hustle into my mostly serene life. It’s taught me how to flow more with the energy I encounter.
These surprises have come as a bonus in my moon manifesting. Along with the many changes that have manifested in my life the past year and a half I have gained new freedom. I realize more frequently that it is easy to start over and manifest the things I currently desire. There is always possibilities and new perspectives to be discovered. These have been blessing in my life and the lives of the students who have walked the path with me. If you are thinking about starting a moon practice I would encourage you to begin. You will gain many surprises for yourself and enrich your life.
