Capricorn New Moon Ritual for Grounding and Manifesting
This ritual is best done from January 15-24th.
You will need:
- Your favorite crystal: to choose your crystal, close your eyes and ask yourself what crystal would be most beneficial to you right now. Open your eyes and pick the first crystal that you gravitate towards
- Smudging tool of your choice
- Pen and paper
1.) Start by smudging your aura and surroundings using sage or whatever smudging tool you prefer. For more instructions on how to do this, read this.
2.) Once you are cleansed, sit down cross-legged on the floor or on a chair with your feet flat on the ground.
3.) Take your crystal in your left hand and place it just under your belly button. Keep your hand there to hold the crystal in place.
4.) Breathe deeply and imagine the oxygen going in and out of your crystal. Stay here for 10 breaths or until your mind has settled. If it helps, bring your awareness to the crystal and imagine its energy merging with your own.
5.) Once you feel settled, close your eyes and begin doing a body scan. Starting at your feet, imagine energy rising up from Mother Earth, from deep within her core all the way to the top of your head. Move slowly as you visualize this energy, and try to not forget any body parts.
Imagine Mother’s Earth’s energy like a green channel of light that moves up from the ground through the feet, into the ankles, up the knees, thighs, hips and so on, until it reaches the top of your head.
6.) When the green light of Mother Earth energy reaches the top of your head, visualize it shooting out from your crown and reaching up all the way to the heavens and repeat softly to yourself three times-
“I am grounded in Mother Earth’s energy. I am rooted in light. I am safe. I am secure. I am supported. I always know the way forward. Within me are all the answers I need.”
7.) Open your eyes and put your crystal to the side. Now begin making a list of all the areas of your life that you do not feel secure or supported with. Think about all the areas of your life that you would like more grounded energy or more stability.
8.) Once you have your list in front of you, select one or two main areas to focus on. If you are having trouble picking, go for the one that scares you the most!
9.) Once you have your main area of focus in mind, ask yourself- “If I was not afraid of anything, how would I change this situation to be as I desire?”
10.) Start writing whatever comes to your mind, even if it seems silly or not valid. The idea is to just start writing to get the flow of consciousness going. Once you start writing, you may find that ideas start flowing naturally.
11.) Keep writing till you feel that you have gained all the insights you need. (If you don’t gain any insights just trust that the Universe is going to keep your question in mind and then will help to deliver answers to you over the course of the week. You may also find that your question was answered through your writing, you may just not be aware of it in the moment.)
12.) Look at what you have written and then make a declaration that you are going to follow at least three of the suggestions or changes that came through to you. Be willing to release some of your fears and take your own advice that was channelled to you by Mother Earth.
13.) To close the ritual, write down the things you are going to do to change your life to be more like you desire. Try to phrase them in a positive way- for example, “I am going to”, rather than “I am not going to”. Place this piece of paper next to, or on top of your crystal. Your intention will keep being sent out to the Universe through the crystal. You can discard of the paper and recharge the crystal when you are finished working with your request.
Happy New Moon!
