5 New Moon Rituals for Manifesting Your Dreams

Hey gorgeous soul, are you ready to harness the magic of new moon rituals? If you’re not sure what that means, don’t worry, I’ve got you covered!

New moon rituals are a way to set intentions and manifest your deepest desires. And the best part? It doesn’t require any fancy tools or unicorn blood (sorry Harry Potter fans). Just a few simple practices that I’ll share with you today.

So grab your crystals, light some candles, and let’s get manifesting!

Ritual 1: Energetic Refresh

This ritual is like an energetic spring cleaning. While it’s important to cleanse and clear your space before any type of energy work, this ritual is more of a deep cleaning.  Like when you push the furniture around and vacuum the cobwebs behind them.  It’s great to do whenever you feel like you need a fresh start to something.  

🌙Set your intention: Before you start, take a moment to set your intention for the cleansing. Whether it’s to release negative energy, invite in positive energy, or simply create a peaceful space, be clear about what you want to achieve.

🌙Open your windows: It’s important to let the smoke and energy flow out of your space, so open your windows before you begin.

🌙Light your tool: Whether you’re using sage, palo santo, or incense, light the tip and let it burn for a few seconds before blowing it out.

🌙Start at the door: Begin at the entrance of your space and move clockwise around the room, waving the smoke in the air as you go.

🌙Focus on corners: Negative energy tends to collect in corners, so spend extra time in those areas, making sure to waft the smoke into every nook and cranny.

🌙Set your own pace: Don’t rush through the process. Take your time and focus on the energy you’re clearing.

When you’re cleansing your space, it’s important to set the intention to clear negative energy. Just like with manifestation, intention is everything. By setting the intention to release negative energy, you’re telling the universe exactly what you want and creating a powerful energy shift in your space.

This shift can help you to release any energetic blockages that might be preventing you from manifesting your desires. So, take a moment to set your intention and visualize the negative energy leaving your space. You can say something as simple as, “I release any negative energy from this space and invite positive energy to flow in.”

Remember, you are the creator of your reality, and by setting a clear intention, you’re taking control of your energy and your life.

Ritual 2:  Create a Vision Board

Visualizing your goals and desires is a powerful way to manifest them into reality, and one of the most effective tools for visualization is a vision board. A vision board is a collage of images, words, and phrases that represent your goals and desires. By creating a visual representation of what you want to manifest, you’re sending a clear message to the universe about what you want to attract into your life.

Plus, looking at your vision board every day can help keep you focused on your goals and remind you of why you’re doing the work to manifest them. So, grab a stack of magazines, a glue stick, and a poster board, and get ready to create some serious magic!

The New Moon Vision Board

While many people create vision boards at the start of the new year to set big goals for the year ahead, creating a smaller vision board each moon cycle can be a powerful way to focus on more specific desires.

New moon energy is all about new beginnings, making it the perfect time to set intentions for the coming weeks. By creating a vision board for each new moon, you’re tuning into the specific energy of that cycle (eg. on a Virgo new moon, create a vision board about your organization goals, or on a Sagittarius new moon, make a vision board about a current travel goal you have).

Plus, focusing on a smaller, more specific goal can make it feel more achievable and give you a greater sense of progress as you work towards manifesting it. So, grab a small piece of paper or a mini poster board, and create a vision board that represents your intentions for the current moon cycle. It’s a simple but powerful practice that can help you manifest your desires in no time!

Tips for creating a vision board that reflects your dreams and goals

When creating your vision board, it’s important to choose images and words that truly resonate with you and reflect your desires. Here are some tips to help you create a vision board that’s aligned with your dreams and goals:

🌙Get specific: Don’t just choose generic images or phrases that could apply to anyone. Get specific about what you want to manifest, and choose images and words that reflect those specific desires.

🌙Use affirmations: Along with images, incorporate affirmations or positive statements that support your intentions. Write these out on your board or print them out and add them to your collage.

🌙Mix it up: Your vision board doesn’t have to be all images or all words. Mix it up and create a collage that reflects your unique style and preferences.

🌙Add emotion: When choosing images and phrases, choose ones that evoke positive emotions in you. The more emotional resonance your board has, the more powerful it will be.

🌙Keep it visible: Once you’ve created your vision board, place it somewhere where you’ll see it every day. This will help keep you focused on your goals and remind you of the energy you’re working with each moon cycle.

Incorporating your vision board into your new moon ritual

Once you’ve created your vision board, it’s time to incorporate it into your new moon ritual. Here are some techniques to help you do just that:

🌙Meditate on it: Take some time to sit in quiet meditation with your vision board. You can light some candles and set them around it.  Focus on the images and words you’ve chosen, and allow yourself to feel the emotions that come up as you do so.

🌙Charge it up: Place your vision board under the light of the new moon to charge it up with lunar energy. This will help amplify the energy you’ve put into it and make it more powerful.

🌙Carry it with you: After your new moon ritual, carry your vision board with you throughout the month. Place it in a spot where you’ll see it often, or snap a picture of it and set it as your phone’s home screen.

Ritual 3: Write an Abundance Check

Writing an abundance check is a powerful new moon ritual that can help you manifest financial abundance. The idea is that by writing a check to yourself and imbuing it with intention, you’re sending a clear message to the universe that you’re ready to receive abundance and prosperity.

Here’s how to do it:

🌙Get a blank check: Start by getting a blank check from your checkbook or you can download this one that I made for free.  It prints as three checks on a standard 8.5”x11” piece of paper.  It’s my gift to you, friend!

🌙Fill in the details: Fill out the check as if it were a real check, but instead of writing it to pay a bill, write it to yourself. Be sure to write the amount you want to receive in full and put the date as the current date.

🌙Sign it: Sign the check and write “Law of Abundance” in the memo line.

🌙Place it in a special spot: Put the check in a special spot where you’ll see it often, like on your altar or vision board.  You could also put it in your wallet and carry it with you!

🌙Release attachment: After you’ve written your abundance check, it’s important to release any attachment to the outcome. Trust that the universe will bring you the abundance you desire in its own way and in its own time.

How to decide the amount to put on your check:

🌙Be specific: Instead of writing a generic amount like “money” or “abundance,” write a specific amount that you want to manifest. This could be a monthly income goal, a specific amount to pay off a debt, or a down payment for a house.

🌙Make it achievable: While it’s great to dream big, it’s important to set goals that are achievable in the near future. Setting a goal that’s too far out of reach can be discouraging and make it harder to stay motivated.  You can only manifest what you subconscious will believe, so start with smaller amounts, and as you see success, you can start dreaming bigger!

🌙Focus on gratitude: Before writing your abundance check, take a moment to express gratitude for the abundance that’s already in your life. This will help you come from a place of abundance and attract more of it into your life.

By following these tips, you’ll be able to write an abundance check that’s specific, achievable, and aligned with your financial goals.  The universe has a way of bringing abundance to us in unexpected ways, so trust in the process and enjoy the journey!

Ritual 4:  Meditate on Your Intentions

Meditation is a powerful tool for setting and clarifying intentions. When we meditate, we quiet the chatter in our minds and tap into our inner wisdom. This helps us gain clarity on what we truly desire and strengthens our resolve to manifest it.

Meditation also helps us get into a relaxed state, which is important for manifesting our desires. When we’re in a state of relaxation, we’re more receptive to the universe’s guidance and can better align our energy with our intentions.

If you’re new to meditation, don’t worry! There are many guided meditations available online that can help you get started. You can also try simple mindfulness meditation, where you focus on your breath and bring your attention back whenever your mind starts to wander.

Here’s how to do a meditation-focused New Moon ritual:

🌙Find a quiet and comfortable space: Choose a space where you can sit comfortably and won’t be disturbed. This could be a room in your home, a spot in nature, or a quiet corner of a park.

🌙Set the mood: Create a relaxing atmosphere by lighting candles or incense, playing calming music, or using essential oils. This will help you get into a relaxed state and set the tone for your meditation.

🌙Set an intention: Before you begin your meditation, set an intention for what you want to focus on. This could be a specific desire you want to manifest or a feeling you want to cultivate.

🌙Use a guided meditation: If you’re new to meditation, using a guided meditation can be helpful. There are many resources available online, including apps like Insight Timer that offer guided meditations specifically for new moons and manifesting your desires.

🌙Focus on your breath: If you prefer to meditate on your own, focus on your breath and bring your attention back whenever your mind starts to wander. This will help you stay present and centered.

🌙Visualize your desires: As you meditate, visualize yourself already having achieved your goals. See yourself living the life you want, feeling the emotions you want to feel, and experiencing the abundance you desire.

Remember, meditation is a practice, and the more you do it, the easier it becomes. By incorporating meditation into your new moon ritual, you’ll be able to tap into your inner wisdom and set intentions that are aligned with your highest good. This will help you manifest your desires more easily and with greater clarity.

Techniques for deepening your meditation practice during a New Moon ritual:

🌙Use breathwork: Incorporating breathwork techniques can help deepen your meditation practice and help you connect with your body and emotions. Try taking slow, deep breaths and focusing on the sensations in your body as you inhale and exhale.

🌙Incorporate affirmations: Affirmations are positive statements that can help reprogram your subconscious mind and align your thoughts with your desires. You can repeat affirmations silently to yourself during your meditation practice, such as “I am worthy of abundance and prosperity” or “I am capable of achieving my dreams.”

🌙Practice gratitude: Gratitude is an important part of manifesting abundance and can help shift your focus from lack to abundance. During your meditation practice, take some time to reflect on what you’re grateful for in your life and express gratitude for the abundance that’s already present.

Remember, there’s no right or wrong way to meditate, and what works for one person may not work for another. The key is to find a technique that resonates with you and helps you connect with your inner wisdom. By deepening your meditation practice during your new moon ritual, you’ll be able to align your thoughts and intentions with your desires and manifest your dreams more easily.

Ritual 5:  Gratitude Practice

Gratitude is a powerful practice that can enhance your manifestation power and help you attract more abundance into your life. When you focus on what you’re grateful for, you’re sending a message to the universe that you appreciate the blessings in your life, and this can help you attract even more blessings.

Gratitude also helps shift your focus from lack to abundance, and this shift in perspective can help you manifest your desires more easily.

During a new moon ritual, take some time to practice gratitude by reflecting on what you’re grateful for in your life. You can do this by journaling, making a gratitude list, or simply thinking about the things you appreciate. You can also express gratitude for the abundance that’s already present in your life, such as your health, relationships, and home.

Start by creating a quiet and peaceful space where you won’t be interrupted. This will help you focus and tune into your gratitude practice.

Set an intention to cultivate a sense of gratitude and abundance during your ritual. You can do this by lighting a candle, setting a crystal or other meaningful object in front of you, or simply taking a few deep breaths and focusing your mind.

Practice gratitude regularly, not just during your new moon ritual. Cultivating a sense of gratitude can be a powerful daily practice that can help shift your mindset and attract more abundance into your life.
