We have a little over twenty-four hours before the new moon, which will be exact at 6:06pm on Monday October 12th. This period before the new moon is prime “dark moon time”, which means it’s optimal for taking time for yourself. Use this time to check in and become aware of your needs and nourish yourself in whatever ways feel appropriate.
This is also an extremely powerful time for psychic/emotional housecleaning. Now is the time to review what’s been happening in your life, what your relationships have mirrored to you about yourself, and evaluate what it’s time to let go of, whether it be thought patterns, habits, aspects of your identity, fear, the need for control, an outdated belief, an attachment, a relationship, a job, or anything else that has outlived its purpose in your life. This is a perfect time to assess what in your life is nurturing you and giving you energy and what is draining you and release what is not working.
In recent weeks you have more than likely been shown at least one thing, or maybe a few things, that aren’t working in your life. If you’re having trouble, there are a couple of techniques that might help you get at the root of negative thoughts and beliefs. The first is simply asking yourself, “What is the worst thought I think about myself?” Yes it feels uncomfortable to answer, and you may feel resistance, but try to answer it honestly. What’s the first thing that comes to mind? If you’re not getting to what feels like the root, then you can try another technique for digging deeper. Ask yourself the following: “One negative thing I think about myself is _____________; another negative thing I think about myself is _______________; The WORST thing I think about myself is _________________.” That should help you uncover a negative belief about yourself that you might want to focus on releasing this dark moon.
The dark moon is also a powerful time to focus on forgiveness. Forgiveness of yourself and forgiveness of others is a powerful healer, and if you are trying to clean house and release blocks that are holding you back, it’s essential. Forgiveness is releasing yourself from the negativity of an event. It is not reconciliation or trust. Forgiveness only involves healing and moving forward on your end and in no way means a lack of healthy boundaries. Resentment and guilt serve no purpose as you create your life and actually can keep you stuck, or even create illness.
Take this time and set yourself free. A new beginning is just a few hours away!
