New Moon Ritual + Practice: Charging an Amulet

Aired -

An amulet is traditionally a small piece of jewelry thought to bring protection or offer good luck. On this eve of peak intention, we will use meditation, gentle movement, and a new moon incantation to charge the symbol of your choice with whatever you're calling into your life.

All levels

Tools needed:
  • special piece of jewelry or object to charge with your intention

  • Sacred smoke such as sage, palo santo, or incense 
  • Optional: symbols of fire (lit candle), water (bowl of water), air (incense, feather, sacred smoke), and earth (salt, rocks, crystals, plants)
