Michelle Lewis – The Blessings Butterfly
One of my favorite teachings that the New Moon has to offer is this: You can always start over. I have found this idea that you can always start over to be a powerful mantra that has helped me to evolve and grow.
At the beginning of each lunar cycle, without fail, is the New Moon phase. It typically only lasts for 2-3 days and signals the start of the moon’s orbit around the Earth. In this phase, the moon is barely visible as she becomes perfectly aligned between Earth and the Sun. Over the next 28ish days, our lovely little moon will complete her dance around our planet, showing us a little bit more of her soft, celestial glow with each passing day.
During each New Moon phase, the energy is ideal for creating positive change. This might look like: setting fresh new intentions, crafting spells and sigils, refreshing and blessing sacred spaces & magickal tools, planting something, or making a move. To help move forward and embrace the cycles of change, I have developed the practice of creating powerful mantras or positive affirmations with each New Moon. Here are a few powerful mantras that help me get in the most positive frame of mind:
