The New Moon offers us a really special and powerful time to create change in our lives. As the moon goes from dark to full, it is gaining momentum and bringing with it an energy to call in things that we are wanting like no other time in its cycle.

It’s useful to harness this energy with clear intention and rituals to help plant the seeds of our heart’s desires. There are many rituals one can do but I love using meditation, journaling, visualization, essential oils, crystals and yoga, of course!

Another area we want to focus on to bring about this change is the solar plexus chakra. This is the energy center where I believe we can truly bring our dreams into being. It’s important, however, to get grounded in the root chakra, then visualize with the power of the sacral chakra. From there, we’ll move the energy up into the solar plexus to transform what we no longer need into our true desires of what we want our lives to look like.

I’m a firm believer in the law of attraction, and the subtle energies running through our beings, and when combined with the new moon energies, I’ve seen very powerful manifestations come into being. Let’s dive into each of the different avenues for utilizing these natural powers of the Universe.


A meditation during this time could be combined with a powerful intention. Turn your intention into an affirmation that can be recited over and over during a 5-20 minute meditation. Many think that meditation is “clearing” or “emptying” the mind but that’s virtually impossible. Instead, we want to have “one-pointed focus”. Every time your mind wanders, you bring it right back to that focus. In this case, we’ll use the affirmation.

Some general affirmations you could use are:

  • I create my own reality (this is the one used in the New Moon Yoga Flow)
  • I manifest all I desire
  • I have the life of my dreams


But you can also get more specific:

  • I own the home of my dreams
  • I am in a loving relationship with the person of my dreams
  • I attract dream clients



Journaling can also be very effective. I love to write down everything that I desire as if it’s already here. Try writing how grateful you are for each thing and WHY. Then combine that with visualization to use your imagination to actually SEE you having all those things and really tap into the FEELING that each one brings. This is one of the best activities you can do and will bring about change the quickest, in my experience.


Essential Oils

Remember to combine these oils with a carrier oil when applying directly to the skin. You can put on your neck to bring the scents into your nose while meditating, journaling or doing yoga.

Root chakra for grounding – vetiver or patchouli

Sacral chakra for visualizing and dreaming – clary sage

Solar Plexus chakra for manifesting – grapefruit and cardamom

General manifesting oils:

  • Wild orange
  • Roman chamomile
  • Litsea




The crystals I love to use for manifesting certain in certain areas are:

  • love – rose quartz
  • abundance – citrine
  • clear quartz – everything
  • money – pyrite



In general, when working on balancing the solar plexus chakra, I love to focus on bringing heat into the body, ab work and twists.

  • Sun salutations
  • Holding poses for longer amounts of time
  • Chair pose
  • Vinyasas
