There is a Supermoon tonight. This post explains how to make Moon Water. Moon Water is simply water that has had time to sit under the light of the full moon and absorb some of its power. What do you do with Moon Water? There are many options…
Use it to clean your sacred space, crystals
Add it to a ritual bath
Dip your brushes in it when you paint
Use it to water your plants
Create a fragrant room spray by adding essential oils and alcohol
Use in an essential oil diffuser
Drink it (if you have not added essential oils)
To anoint your body as a way of energetically cleansing yourself
I like to use mine as a room spray, to water the flowers in my room and in my paintbrush jar 🙂
you will need:
Water-safe Crystals (optional)
Essential oils (optional)
Use incense to clean your crystals, the jar and the space around it.
Add water-safe crystals to the jar.
Add water to the jar.
Add a few drops of essential oils (if using and don’t plan on drinking the water). You can use a lid if you wish but this is optional. Using a lid will keep the water clean.
Say an affirmation or prayer to set an intention for your full moon ritual.
Put your Moon Water under the Full Moon to charge overnight.
In astronomy, a new moon marks the first lunar phase. A new moon symbolises new beginnings. Many people use the energy of a new moon when starting a new project or to achieve their goals. There is a full moon approximately every 30 days. This is the length of time it takes for the Moon to go through one whole lunar phase cycle.
The Moon’s phases and the months of the year are connected – the word ‘month’ takes its root from the word ‘moon’. During April and May this year there will be a ‘supermoon’.
During a New Moon, the Sun and the Moon are aligned. The Sun and the Earth are on opposite sides of the moon. The side of the moon facing the Earth receives no direct sunlight and is lit only by dim sunlight reflected from Earth. The Earth and Sun are at the same celestial longitude. The Moon is only ‘New’ for a moment, when the when the Sun and the Moon are directly aligned in the sky.
The energy of a new moon lasts approximately three days before and after the lunation. The moon phases can affect our mind, body and emotions.
What to do during the new moon:
Write down your intentions and what you’re looking to manifest
Vibration: ‘a state of being, the atmosphere, or the energetic quality of a person, place, thought, or thing’
‘Your energy introduces you before you even speak’
Have you ever caught yourself saying ‘I liked the vibe of that café’ ‘That dude has weird vibes‘ ‘ I really like her vibe’ ‘We were vibing’
You can manifest change according to how you direct your thoughts and emotions
The higher your vibration is, the more in touch you are with your higher self
The lower your vibration is, the more out of sync you are with your higher self, and the more conflict you experience in life
‘Everything in life is vibration’- Albert Einstein
Low Vibrational Energy
Signs you may have a low vibration, or give off ‘negative vibes’
Constant feelings of anger, jealousy, bitterness, pessimism, guilt, blame
Always tired and never feel rested
You don’t have any major goals or clear direction
You are uncaring towards yourself or others
You feel unfulfilled
You thrive on gossip and bashing others
You are emotionally distant or reactive
You are argumentative
You complain a lot
You have substance abuse issues
You are needy or demanding of others
You continue to make poor life choices

Raise Your Vibration
Treat yourself with Love
Become conscious of your thoughts
Recognise what emotions aren’t yours
Spend time in nature
Surround yourself with people who lift you up, rather than drag you down. Spend time with people who make you feel better about yourself and who you can ‘vibe’ with. Healthy relationships raise your vibrations (good vibes), while conflict has the opposite effect.
Practice a morning ritual
Yoga, Meditation, Reiki
Listen to high-vibe music & move ya body💃
Unfollow people on social media who don’t empower you or you don’t ‘vibe’ with

You are confident in yourself and your abilitiies
You laugh and smile often

Being tapped into our energy and the energy of those around us can be beneficial. If you are someone who is sensitive to the emotions of those around you or someone who is easily influenced by the energies and opinions of others, this blogpost may be helpful. If you are an empath or highly sensitive person, soaking up negative energy of those around you can leave you feeling drained and exhausted. If someone or something is mentally draining you, you are going to feel terrible. Protecting your energy is important for your mental and physical health and determines your overall happiness. 🧘
Below are some ways you can protect your emotional energy and inner peace
Tune into how you are feeling
Trust in yourself
Be less reactive, or non-reactive
Learn to say No to people who drain you. Do you often say “yes” to things you don’t feel like doing, just to be polite, or because you feel like you have to?
Please yourself before pleasing others, your needs are important as anybody else’s. Being a people-pleaser can take a toll on your wellbeing
Set healthy boundaries and establish healthy relationships
It is no secret that toxic people are skilled at draining the life out of you. Cutting energy vampires out of your life or consciously avoiding these leeches will cause a drastic improvement in your psychological wellbeing, happiness and quality of life. Nobody is obliged to stay in a toxic environment or be around these types of people.
Maybe you have some of these traits or can identify these traits in others? Identifying these types of people and practicing self-care is key. 🙂🗝️💆👌
