Creativity is one of the soulpreneur’s greatest gifts. When you come up with an idea that will inspire more clients or make a bigger difference in the world, you want it to succeed with all your heart. While you may be tempted to go into planning mode and start figuring out how to make it happen, I challenge you to wait and do something else first: Do a new moon ritual to give your new idea some wings.
The energy of the moon is powerful. Think about it — water is the most powerful element in the Universe, yet the moon has dominion over its rise and fall. Taking that notion a step further, consider the fact that more than half of our bodies are made up of water. So don’t you want the powerful forces of the moon working for you?
The new moon represents the beginning of a birth cycle. Think about everything you know about birth. When a child is conceived, it takes approximately nine months before the baby emerges. When seeds are planted, there is a period of stillness before the plant springs up from the ground. The new moon is that time in which new ideas are planted and are allowed to gestate before they blossom.
So how can this information help you with your business endeavors? When you have an idea for a new product, a new service or a new creative venture, conduct a new moon ritual before starting work on the project.
First of all, you need to check a lunar calendar to discover when the next new moon is coming. In the weeks leading up to the new moon, take the time to think about the venture and the type of success you would like to have with it. Purchase an orange candle to symbolize creativity. I would also purchase a green candle to represent prosperity so the venture can bring money into the business.
On the night of the new moon, go into some type of sacred space where you won’t be disturbed and clear your mind and take a few deep breaths. Write down your plans for the idea, and what you would like to accomplish. Also write down the type of success you would like to have. Burn the candles. Put your notes aside and release the outcome.
Once you’ve done that, follow any inspirations that come to you about that particular venture.
