Find the time to sit beneath the New Moon. Close your eyes. Feel the air all around you, relax. Hear the frogs speak to one another. Feel the wind on your skin. Look up at the diamond speckled night sky. Nature is alive... Breath deeply. Center yourself, the energies are there to connect with. Say a few words to announce your New Moon intentions. Picture, if you can working on set goal. Become aware of what it will take to get you from here...to there. In 29 days you may be surprised at the results. Have a realistic goal.
