Connecting with Your Inner Feminine Energy During the New Moon

Updated: Dec 4, 2023

The new moon is a fascinating astronomical occurrence that has captivated people for centuries. It occurs when the moon is positioned between the sun and Earth, and its illuminated side is facing away from us, making it invisible to the naked eye.

From an astronomical perspective, the new moon occurs every 29.5 days, which marks the start of a new lunar cycle. During this phase, the moon is invisible to the naked eye, and the sky appears darker than usual. The lack of light during a new moon makes it an excellent time for stargazing and observing the constellations.

From a spiritual belief perspective, the new moon represents a time of new beginnings, fresh starts, and new opportunities. It is a symbol of growth, renewal, and transformation. In many cultures, the new moon is a powerful time for setting intentions, making plans, and manifesting desires. It is believed that during this phase, the energy is focused on new possibilities, making it an ideal time to start new projects, pursue new goals, or set new intentions.

Devine Feminine Energy

The new moon is also associated with the feminine energy and the divine feminine, representing the cyclical nature of life and the power of creation. In many spiritual traditions, the divine feminine is seen as a source of inspiration and guidance and is often associated with goddesses and other female deities. The divine feminine energy represents the qualities of nurturing, intuition, compassion, creativity, and wisdom. It is believed to be the counterpart to masculine energy, which is associated with action, logic, and strength.

Remember that the divine feminine energy is believed to reside within all individuals, regardless of gender, and can be accessed through meditation, prayer, and other forms of spiritual contemplation. Embracing and nurturing the divine feminine energy is a way to connect with inner wisdom, creativity, and intuition, leading to a sense of wholeness and balance in life.

New Moon and the element of water

The new moon is often associated with the element of water. Water is a symbol of emotions, intuition, and the subconscious mind, all qualities related to the energy of the new moon. Water is also a powerful force of nature that can be gentle, nurturing, or powerful and transformative, much like the new moon's energy.

Just as water can flow and adapt to its surroundings, the new moon's energy encourages us to be flexible and open to new possibilities. In many spiritual traditions, water is seen as a purifying and cleansing element that can help us release old patterns and emotions, making space for new growth and transformation. This is why many people use the new moon's energy to perform rituals and practices involving water, such as taking a bath, swimming in the ocean or a lake, or simply immersing themselves in water in some way.

The association of the new moon with the element of water highlights the importance of emotions, intuition, and the subconscious mind in our spiritual growth and transformation. By embracing the energy of the new moon and connecting with the element of water, we can tap into our inner wisdom and intuition, release old patterns and emotions, and create space for new beginnings and growth.

New Moon and crystals

A New moon is a powerful time to work with crystals and set intentions for new beginnings and growth. Some crystals associated with the new moon's energy include moonstone, clear quartz, labradorite, and black tourmaline.

Moonstone is a crystal closely associated with the moon and the divine feminine energy. It is believed to enhance intuition, creativity, and emotional well-being, making it an ideal crystal to work with during the new moon phase.

Clear quartz is a versatile crystal often used to manifest and amplify intentions. It is believed to enhance clarity and focus, making it an excellent crystal to work with when setting new intentions or goals during the new moon.

Labradorite is a crystal that is known for its ability to enhance intuition and spiritual awareness. It is believed to provide protection from negative energy and enhance one's connection with the higher realms, making it an ideal crystal to work with during the new moon.

Black tourmaline is a crystal that is often used for grounding and protection. It is believed to help transmute negative energy into positive energy and provide a sense of stability and security, making it an excellent crystal to work with during the new moon when setting intentions for growth and transformation.

When working with crystals during the new moon phase, setting your intentions and focusing your energy on manifesting your desires is essential. You can hold the crystals in your hand, meditate with them, or place them on your altar to help amplify your intentions and connect with the new moon's energy.

Whether you are interested in astronomy, spirituality, crystals, or the beauty of the night sky, the new moon is a fascinating phenomenon with much to offer. By taking advantage of this powerful energy, we can tap into our inner wisdom, creativity, and intuition, and create a life of purpose, meaning, and fulfilment.

Meditation for Beaming and Creating the Future

12 to 62 minutes

3 exercises

Low activity level

note: If you prefer to practice a shorter version of any meditation or kriya, remember the ratio of the set and keep that ratio when you reduce the length of your practice.

Part One: Drink the Breath

Sit with legs crossed, hands on knees in Gyan Mudra

Posture: Sit in Easy Pose. Stretch the spine up and become very still.

Mudra: Relax the hands in Gyan Mudra on the knees.

Breath: Drink the breath in a single, deep, long sip through a rounded mouth. Close the mouth and exhale through the nose, slowly and completely.

Eye Focus: Eyes are closed.

Continue for 7-15 minutes.

Part Two: Meditate on Zero In the same posture, inhale and hold your breath comfortably. Meditate on all negative, emotional, mental and physical conditions and situations. As you hold your breath in, meditate on zero.

Think in this way: "All is zero; I am zero; each thought is zero.

For example, "My pain is zero; that problem is zero; that illness is zero."

As each thought crosses your mind, bring it to zero—a single point of light; a small, insignificant non-existence.

Exhale and continue this process. Breathe in a comfortable rhythm.

Continue for 7-11 minutes.

Part Three: Beam Out Think of the quality or condition you most desire for your total happiness and growth.

Summarize it in a single word like "wealth," "health, "relationship," "guidance," "knowledge," "luck."

It has to be one word.

Lock on that word and thought. Visualize facets of it. Inhale and suspend the breath as you beam the thought in a continuous stream. Lock onto it. Relax the breath as needed. Continue for 5-15 minutes.

To end, inhale and move the shoulders, arms and spine.

Then, stretch the arms up, spread the fingers wide, and breathe deeply a few times.
