The strengths and qualities of the Mother Moon goddess are highlighted with each of the moon phases, each phase connecting you with a different energy within the moon’s cycle. Setting intentions with the phases of the moon creates a full cycle of intentional living, allowing you to bring meaning and deep transformation into your life.
The Mother Moon Goddess constantly changes, showing that change is not something to fear but rather to embrace. As she grows, she invites in new energy and opportunities. As she wanes and moves into darkness, she releases her shadows. Connecting with your inner moon goddess allows for deep transformation and creation through the moon cycle.
Practicing japa meditation during the cycles of the moon is a deeply spiritual way to transform and heal. Gather your Mother Moon Mala Necklace and print out our Moon Phase Intention Guide (shown below) to begin living in tune with the moon. By setting a new moon intention and working with this intention through each of the moon phases, you can harness the power of the moon to bring your intention to life. To learn how to fill out your intention guide, follow the meaning of each phase of the moon below:
Set a new moon intention and create a new moon ritual to give energy to your intention. Setting intentions can be difficult, but there are a few things to keep in mind that will make the process easier. It must be something you deeply care about. For example, setting the intention to make more money won’t fuel your willpower, however saying you’d like to find a career you are passionate about and enjoy doing will be motivating. Another thing to keep in mind is that the intention must be personal. You cannot set an intention that is outside of yourself; such as you want your friend to find love. It must be something within your own control. Lastly, you must live as if your intention already exists. Using I am statements, transform the way you think and feel, rather than saying I will or I want to be.
Set your intention that encompasses an overall theme for that particular moon phase. You may say I am healthy or I am love. For the first 4 days of the moon phase, practice mantra meditation using your mala beads and repeating your I am intention 108 times each morning.
By the crescent moon, you have patterned your mind to think of your intention as already coming to life. During the crescent moon phase, begin to feel as though your intention has manifested. Feel the emotions associated with your intention filling your body.
Create an I am statement that embodies the emotions you feel from acting as though your intention is brought to life. It may be something as simple as I am energized or I am happy. Using your mala beads, repeat this mantra 108 times for the next 3 mornings.
First Quarter Moon
It’s at this phase you want to accelerate your intention. What can you do to take action to support your intention? This is the most powerful time to be proactive and physically create your intention in the world.
Make an I am statement that motivates you each morning to take action and use your power to create all that you imagined. I am motivated to create health or I am able to create anything I imagine may be useful mantras. Using your mala beads, repeat this mantra 108 times for the next 4 mornings
This is the moon phase where you have to surrender to the universe. You have the power to create anything you imagine in your life, however the universe will guide you when you are holding onto desires that aren’t in your best interests. It’s this time that you may realize that your intention may come to fruition in a way that was different than you envisioned it would, and that is okay. During this time, you must open yourself to the possibility of that. Using your mala beads, repeat this mantra 108 times for the next 4 mornings
Use an I Am statement that allows this surrender, such as I am open to receiving guidance from the universe.
The full moon is the time to release what no longer serves you. You might have noticed old habits, beliefs or patterns that were blocking your ability to fully embody your intention during the first half of the moon phase. The full moon gives you the chance to release those old ways and come face to face with these issues so you no longer need to hold onto them.
Have a full moon ritual and release those tendencies so you can continue move forward in the life you are creating now. Create an I am statement that encourages you to heal from past wounds and accept they no longer serve you, such as I am healed or I am releasing the beliefs instilled in me from my family and friends. Using your mala beads, repeat this mantra 108 times for the next 4 mornings
During this moon phase, as you come face to face with your shadows that have held you back, address them with an open heart. Don’t shy away from any emotions, negative behaviors or thoughts that arise, but rather welcome them and use them as an opportunity to learn and grow. Express gratitude that you are realizing how past experiences, beliefs and habits have influenced your life up to this point.
Make an I am statement that shows gratitude for the experiences, such as I am learning from past experiences and transforming into a new way of thinking or I am forgiving. Using your mala beads, repeat this mantra 108 times for the next 4 mornings
Third Quarter Moon
At the third quarter moon, you have taken action to create your intention and to remove any obstacles that were in your way. At this point you should have made progress in bringing your intention to life. You might notice your intention is coming to life slowly, but surely, possibly in a way different that you initially thought. In this phase, you can take action to move forward in the way the universe is guiding you.
I am seeing clearly and know the next steps I need to take or I am on my true path, might be helpful mantras for this phase. Using your mala beads, repeat this mantra 108 times for the next 4 mornings
Before entering into the next moon phase, it is important to give thanks for all that you’ve learned, achieved and changed during this cycle. Use this last period of the moon phases to give thanks for the guidance you’ve received and the knowledge you have to move forward.
I am grateful for all the universe gives me or I am connected to the Divine are powerful mantras for this phase. Using your mala beads, repeat this mantra 108 times for the next 3 mornings
As you come to the next new moon, you can adjust your original intention or set a new intention. Living in tune with the moon is a powerful way to connect with the energy of the divine and Mother Nature. Also, if you do not have a Mother Moon mala necklace, you can another crystal or Energy Muse piece and follow the same guidelines.
