My first guest post! With the most incredible babe of babes, Madison Young, the owner of the chic, mid-city crystal shoppe x mystic haven (/my favorite place in LA!), Open Eye Crystals! I asked Madison to write us the perfect New Moon Crystal Manifestation Guide... see below, and enjoy!
By working with Lunar cycles are in flow with the pushes and pulls of life. When you are in sync with the cosmic energies life won't feel like you are swimming upstream. Full Moons are great for releasing what no longer serves and New Moons are phenomenal for manifesting. Below is my 4-step ritual process to New Moon manifesting using crystals.
1. Clear Yourself and Your Space
Before starting any ritual or practice it is important to clear any stagnant or heavy energy that is lingering in your space or within your auric field. I will start the clearing process by burning sage and wafting the smoke in the corners of the room (this is where energy gets stuck the most) then circling the smoke around my body. As I do this I say a little prayer. Before we invite in new intentions, we must release what no longer serves to hold space for new energy. My sageing motto is "I release any energy that is not for my highest good and transmute it to usable/positive energy. I bring in 100 percent pure white light to raise the vibration of this environment."
2. Ground and Connect to Lunar Energy
After you cleared the energy and your aura is now bright and shiny, it is time to connect to Mother Earth and with Mama Luna. Sit on the floor with an erect back and begin to visualize in your mind's eye roots stemming from the base of your spine, growing deep down into the earth. With every breath, these roots grow deeper and stronger until they hit the center of the Earth. Here you tap into the Earth Star's limitless source of prana (energy/vitality source). Now that you are grounded, it is time to open your crown chakra and third eye to the blacked-out disc in the sky, our beautiful New Moon. Although we can't see this sphere above us, close your eyes and draw an etheric beam from your top of your crown to seemingly infinite matter above. With every breath, you are deepening your connection with the Lunar energy and cycles. You feel her gentle yet potent vibrations. Now that you are connected with both the Earth and the Moon, take a few more breaths starting with an inhale from the Earth's center, rising through your chakras and out of your crown to the Moon. Complete the breath cycle by exhaling from the cosmos down through your chakras, back into the Earth's center. Repeat this breath until you feel centered.
3. Set Intentions with Crystals
Crystals are an extremely potent way to amplify and harness one's intentions. When it comes to manifesting I have three tiers of crystals that build on each other depending on the level of sauce I need to bring to the table.
Level 1: Foundation
These stones are the building blocks to New Moon Manifestation.
-Moonstone: Gem of the High Priestess. Connects to the energy, power and cycles of the moon. Increases intuition and inner vision. Calls in the divine feminine. Chakra: 3rd Eye, Crown Physical: Menstruation, Hormone Imbalances
-Rutilated Quartz: Quickens the process of manifestation. Magnifies the energy of any intention or affirmation. Removes blockages to health and abundance. Helps follow through with ideas. Pairs well with Moldavite. Chakra: All Physical: Hair Growth

4. Conclude with Gratitude
"Life is great when you live with gratitude." One of my favorite quotes my mother bestowed on me. We can all find at least one thing to be grateful for. Speak that gratitude into existence! With any practice, when you express gratitude you are opening your heart center and holding space for love and light. Your capacity to manifest is limitless when it comes from a place of love.
