You are a divine spark in the Cosmic Fires of Eternal Flow and Life!
Can you imagine that you are that important?
If you can imagine how broke you are, how lonely you are, and how hurt you are, certainly, you can take a moment to focus in on your mind’s eye (third eye) and see yourself as the important verse in the Cosmic Story that you ARE.

NEW MOON ~ MARCH 1, 2014
New Moons are all about new beginnings. It’s a beautiful time to set new intentions, practice meditations that send out good energy with the new intentions, and to visualize new blessings for the community.
The Moon is associated with the divine feminine, which is all about honoring your sisters and mothers, healing yourself and the community with compassion, nurturing, and gentleness.
But don’t be fooled by the softness of the Divine Mother Goddess; she is a peaceful warrior. She is an energy of divine intention and divine action. So women and men, girls and boys can tap into this wonderful divine energy because it is within all of us.
For any rituals and ceremonies you may decide to have during this or any New Moon time, you may want to call on Aset (Kemetic Sacred Guardian) or Yemoja (Yoruba-Orisha) because they are the epitome of Divine Mother and they can assist with the qualities of compassion, nurturing, and gentleness.
If weather permits this weekend, spend some time in nature observing how gentleness, compassion, and nurturing looks among the trees, the flowers, and all plant life. Meditate upon how the Earth nurtures and cares for us and ways you can send nurturing to Her.
Meditate upon how you can be a Divine being of divine intention and divine action.
Here’s a New Moon Ritual I wanted to share with you:
The following ritual is merely a suggestion. You can tweak this ritual to fit your own personal needs or just use the ritual as inspiration to create your own ritual from the ground up.
Simple New Moon Ritual
Items You’ll Need:
1 white candle
1 piece of paper
On the next New Moon, sit down with a piece of paper and a pen. Think about the new things you would like to attract in your life. Make sure you really take time to think about it. Please be realistic. There’s nothing wrong with thinking big about our lives, but we have to be realistic at the same time.
Now, start to write down your small list of things you’d like to attract into your life. The list might include a new job, new friends, a better attitude towards yourself and others, or a new healthy lifestyle change that fits your personal needs. The sky is the limit with this list, but reality is still key as well.
Once your list is complete set it in front of your white candle. Light the candle and just take a few deep breaths, close your eyes, and think about everything you wrote your list. Visualize everything on your list coming to you with ease and love. See them coming towards you as you hold your arms open and then embrace them closely to you. You are entitled to new beginnings that you’ve created. You are safe. You are secure. You are loved. And you are enjoying a new beginning, a new path, a new and exciting phase in life.
Stay here with this visualization for as long as you feel it’s necessary. Keep the lit candle in a safe place where you can see it and allow it to burn for at least thirty minutes. Be sure you are going to be home to put the candle out. Snuff the candle out after thirty or more minutes. Say a prayer of gratitude to whomever you worship or pray to for guidance. Finally, fold up the list and keep it with you in your wallet or purse as a reminder. From time to time, take out the list and do your visualization for each item until everything comes to fruition. It is done.
