A new moon crossed the sky on Monday, and here we are in a sort of cosmic grey area for those of us who like to take into consideration its phases. It is said that the three days before and after new and full moons are still brimming with the phase’s energy. But where is the best place to cast our focus in this particular time – just after the new moon?
We often consider the new moon to be a time to set your intentions and focus on what to manifest in the upcoming cycle. So what do we do now that we know what we want? We begin the work of creating it.
Much emphasis is placed on the idea of manifesting something — using your mind to focus so powerfully on what you desire that you create it — but I notice there is little information available about the insane amount of effort is takes to get there. It is a beautiful thing to think clearly about what you want to create. But it is the work we do that changes the “want to create” into “I am creating.”
What is it that you want? Do you want it so bad that you already see yourself there? It is action that changes your visions into your reality. You see yourself there, but are you actually seeing yourself get there as we speak?
I used to think that if I only tried hard enough, I could manifest something just by thinking. But I’ve realized that if I really want something, I have to play an active role in getting it. You can’t win the lottery without buying a ticket. You can’t change your reality unless you actually make an effort to change it. So what is the first step?
Whatever it is you are looking to develop, take the first step toward making it happen. In this magical time after the new moon, let’s commit to taking an active role in our reality’s creation. We have more power than we think.
