working with the New Moon calendar journal
"Tracking my moods and cycle have been life changing. It has allowed me to see and tune into my feelings and when I need some extra self care and love."
"It's pretty incredible the way the moon's energy affects me; it's not something I truly anticipated when I started journaling. I discovered that I become incredibly irritable and short with others in the handful of days leading up to a full moon. I focus my meditative practice during that time to channel my energy towards being empathetic and patient."
"I am beginning to see that the intentions I set can manifest when I attend to them. Life really is a garden!"
"I am very hard on myself. I feel like I'm never doing enough or making any progress in the things I want to do. Through using the new moon calendar I have realized how much I go through in a cycle. I am giving myself more credit for what I do accomplish and am learning to be kinder to myself when my goals need more time. I have also seen how much of my energy I give away to others and have been making more space for what I need to nourish myself."
"At the end of the cycle I seem to automatically know what the next cycle will be "about". I've journaled for years, but it's so nice to tie it into my own natural rhythms like this. It's way more meaningful that way!"
ALIGN WITH LUNAR TIME AND CONNECT TO YOUR CREATIVE FLOW
Connect + Create
By tuning in to the expansion and contraction of the moon, you can learn to put fewer demands on yourself and not feel pressure to always be “on” like the bright light of the full moon. There is a need to retreat inward to access the source of your being, as well as the need to reach outward to nourish connections around you.
