Want to know how to energetically cleanse your body to let go of things that no longer serve you? There's so many different methods you can use but, if you’re looking for something simple and easy, here is one ritual you can do that is especially powerful around the new moon, or any other time you feel you have energy you’d like to release. The upcoming spring solstice, for example, is the perfect time for rinsing away the stagnant and ushering in the new.
Typically, the new moon is a time to plant seeds that will cultivate during the rest of the moon cycle. However, a seed can only grow in fertile ground. So, sometimes it’s necessary to clear and prep the field first. Doing a ritual is one way we bring reverence for all that is sacred into our modern world. Women of the world are coming back to knowing and tapping into our Divine Feminine power. So, now is the perfect time for us to get in sync with the rhythm of the earth to align with our inner individual and collective strength.
Time to get in formation, ladies! Let's use this new moon in Aries to set the stage for our blossoming this season.
