A meditation for your New Moon rituals, to be a blessing on the Dark Moon.
Breathe Deeply, slowly exhale.
Relax your shoulders and your jaw, release your grasping hold on it all:
the words unspoken,
the painful rejections,
the deafening screams,
the critical eyes,
the shaking fists,
the white hot tears.
Let all of the accusations and pointed words fall to the ground beside you.
Release the need to be Right, the need to be Wrong.
Feel yourself releasing the pain, the anger, the hurt, the sorrow, the guilt, the shame, the agony, the disbelief, the weight, the worry. Let them all return to their darkness, their slumber, their quiet place.
Let them burn to ashes.
Tonight, as the Moon sleeps, dark as death, let all that has held you back from shining go, that it may fly heavenward and the Moon some comfort.
See yourself as Free, Cleared, and Ready for something New.
