I am so proud of myself. I have been aspiring to make this shop a reality for about a year now. Yes, a whole year. It’s finally manifested and ready to be purchased from.
All this week I’ve been working on the logistics of creating my shop so I could open it today. I wrote all my Terms & Conditions, re-did my About & Contact page, created an actual Home page, and of course, I had to actually set up the Shop.
I did this after my day job every day this week, usually staying up until 2-3am. And if that wasn’t hard enough, I tried to get this stuff up and running last night during a full-fledged Black Moon. It was rough.
Manifesting during a New Moon takes its toll
Before I show you guys my products and services, I wanted to talk a little bit about why this week drained the energy out of me. So here are three reasons why you shouldn’t be manifesting during the New Moon. Just… trust me on this.
The New Moon is a time of reflection and introspection
As you’ve probably heard from me and many witches all over the internet, the New Moon is a time to set intentions based on the last month’s progress, issues, and magick. Think about the way the Moon looks right now. It’s literally not there, or it is just a sliver of silver. With the absolute darkness purveying the sky, us humans can more easily observe the astral plane, ourselves, and the world around us. With the darkness, we are also able to connect to our deepest selves.
New ideas are usually conceived around this time
Because of all the reflection and introspection, new ideas will be flowing easier. You may find that you’re thinking of new goals, new ideas, and new ways to succeed. Because of this, you cannot 100% focus on what you are manifesting. Even when I was sitting at my desk, mindnumbingly writing my Terms legalese and trying not to fall asleep, I was constantly bombarded with cool new ideas for bracelets or products. My focus just wasn’t there all the way.
Energy is low – this is a time of rest
It is dark out during the New Moon (duh), and because of this, it is literally easier for humans to sleep… well, if we still slept outside in huts. And so this Moon phase is usually attributed to a time of rest to replenish your energy. We can interpret the Moon, herself, as taking a day off since she isn’t visible in the sky. Because of the low energy, it will be a struggle to manifest. I decided to take a day off last Friday for my blog post so I could focus on this, whereas during a Full Moon, energy is higher and I could have focused more easily.
It was hard, but I did it
And like I said before, I am very proud of myself! In fact, I’m going to treat myself to a nice dinner tonight to celebrate all the hard work I’ve done this week.
