For this New Moon, I’m going to bring in some solar energy (someone asked me when it might rain – I don’t think I’ve known Ireland so sunny for so many days in a row since I moved last spring) and plant sunflower seeds.
New moons are always a great time to reflect and ponder on the new, to start taking those turtle steps in the direction we want to be moving in, to set intentions and sow metaphorical seeds.
I always make a list of intentions and then burn it for the Full Moon.
But in the morning, I’ll be planting actual sunflower seeds along the edge of the field at the back, each with an intention I can actually (once it’s visible – this whole wildlife gardening lark is a whole new lesson in patience) see grow.
Most of my intentions, these days, are letting go, more and more. Being open to guidance and being as in flow as possible.
Assuming these seeds turn into sunflowers (magic), they’ll be a daily reminder of how the darkest nights (new moons) can be such fertile opportunities for deep transformation, healing and growth.
If you’d like some help relaxing and setting some intentions for yourself, this special New Moon Yoga Nidra is just for you.
And if there’s anything I can help you with, I look forward to hearing from you
