New Moon Wish

Just as the ocean’s tides are affected by the moon, so are our moon cycles. When our bodies are in tune with the natural rhythms of nature, we bleed with the new moon and ovulate with the full moon. Since most women bled at the same time in indigenous cultures, they often gathered in a common hut or tent to bleed together. This was a powerful time of rest, pampering, creativity, and high magic in many cultures. Women in the moon hut or red tent would partake in activities such as grooming and massaging one another, writing music, reflecting on nature, lucid dreaming, visioning, doll and cake making to honor their goddess of choice, intention setting, and a variety of other rituals during this time.

In this modern day and age, there are lights everywhere. These artificial luminaries are a blessing because they allow us to extend our day beyond the sunlight. At the same time, they are a curse because they through off our body’s natural rhythms. This is the reason women bleed at different times of the month outside of the new moon. So our goal is to get back to the practices of old to make us even better in the new. One such practice is setting intentions. Since the moon is not visible when it’s new, the darkness prevails. Spiritually speaking, this is the best time of the month to plant the seeds of your intention. Throughout the month, you can water them and watch them grow. The seeds are our intentions for our lives and our prayers, affirmations, spiritual practice, and action are the four things that help bring one’s vision into fruition.

So how do you set you intentions during the new moon? Follow the steps below.

  • Get a sheet of paper and a writing utensil.
  • Write your name and date on the paper.
  • Relax and take some deep breaths for one – five minutes.
  • Ask yourself, “What’s my intention for this new moon?”
  • Write down up to ten intentions.
  • Speak each intention out loud and say Ase’ at the end of each intention.
  • Say a closing prayer over your intentions.
  • Keep them in a safe and revisit them accordingly as needed.

Here are some quick rules of thumb.

  • Only write down those intentions that feel right with your spirit.
  • Don’t expect overnight manifestations.
  • Don’t try to do new moon intentions for other people. Focus on YOU.
  • Do not throw the intensions away or burn them until they manifest.

Yoni Magic Meditation

This blog post is part of the Yoni Magic virtual event. Back then, I was going by the name Safiyah Naemah and my business was called Safiyah Heals.

Meditation has many benefits from reducing stress to clearing the mind. Another benefit is how the act of meditation aids in creative manifesting. Since meditation helps you connect with the divine within you, you’ll learn to use your thoughts and energy to create what you want.

In this meditation, we will use carnelian stones or a yoni egg. Carnelian is an orange color stone that aligns with your sacral chakra. It is one of the oldest gemstones, treasured by the ancient Egyptians. The clasp of Isis was carved from this gemstone. This stone promotes joy, laughter, and an open heart. All the things necessary for love of others, love of self, and love of nature. The stone has been used for mental and physical balance, to spur ambition, strengthen self-confidence, and help one achieve their goals. It’s even been used in the treatment of infertility. When one cannot make a baby, infertility is manifested on a physical level. If one cannot manifest their dreams, then infertility is on a spiritual level.

The Yoni Magic Meditation is designed to positively impact spiritual infertility and increase your capacity to love. I encourage you to do this meditation each time you desire to create something new or if you feel you’re lacking in creative energy. Over time, you will see amazing changes as long as you have an open mind and open heart.

Here’s how the Yoni Magic Meditation works.

1.Prepare your meditation space by eliminating distractions and making the space inviting

– If you use candles, use orange candles

– If you use essential oils, use orange, lemongrass, or neroli

– If you use incense, use amber, as it stimulates the sacral chakra – sexuality and procreation

2.Place one carnelian stone in each hand and or insert your carnelian yoni egg (if you don’t have the stones or an egg, bring something orange into your meditation time)
3.Sit upright in easy pose. You can use cushions, pillows, or whatever you like.
4.Verbally express love to the creator and invite creative loving energy of love to overtake you.
5.Close your eyes and find your center.
6.Visualize what you want to create or what you need to create it.
7.Breathe deep in and out for counts of 13 for 13 minutes.
8.Say the Yoni Magic Affirmation.

I believe in love. I breathe love. I promote love. I am love.

I design love. I invoke love. I salute love. I am love.

I breed love. I honor love. I value love. I am love.

I speak love. I exude love. I share love. I am love.

I embrace love. I accept love. I cherish love. I am love.

9.Close the meditation with a prayer to thank the creator.
