Fertility intentions are a fantastic approach to any fertility journey. With each womb bleed many women struggle with that definitive truth that their menstrual blood confirms that they are not pregnant this cycle. Whether you connect with the lunar cycle or prefer to work with each womb bleed today I show you how to set fertility intentions, maintain focus and a positive mindset using a simple technique.
How to work with Fertility Intentions!
Using Creation fertility inspiration guidance cards I drew a card. Today it was number 26. The New Moon. Very apt because the current new moon cycle began on Saturday 18th November.
Step 1: Fertility Intentions
Simply take some time out. Breathe and let the day go. Perhaps you would like to begin with a Yoni steam or maybe you are too busy. However you wish to begin is up to you but I advise you to settle into this moment and don’t rush. Perhaps you would like to light a candle, burn some Creation Essence or aromatherapy oil and turn your phone off. This is your time to focus on this fertility cycle and plan your month to support conception.
Step 3. Fertility Intentions.
How to complete:
a) Begin with the left hand column. The Present. Identify where you presently are in your menstrual/fertility cycle and emotionally how you feel. Take some time – there is no rush. Just write it down.
b) Now let us consider some support. Focusing on the middle column read down the list of suggestions. What areas, if any, will help you work towards your dream of a positive conception during the next 28 day cycle? Do 1 or 2 resonate with you? Circle or highlight these or add something more pertinent to your personal fertility journey.
c) Setting Intentions. Now focus on the third column. Decision time! Write down 1-4 areas that you feel you could focus on this month. Be careful not to overload yourself; it is better to concentrate on 1 thing and do it well than 4 and feel overwhelmed!
Here are some examples: You are feeling stressed and a complementary therapy would help. Opt for reflexology or sacral abdominal massage and book a treatment from day 5 – around ovulation to support a healthy ovulation and possibly conception. Maybe you recognise that you have not been drinking enough water – so buy a glass bottle and set your fertility intention to drink 2 litres per day. Perhaps you could focus on eating well or seeing a fertility nutritionist. Perhaps none are appropriate so maybe opt for an assisted conception open evening or learn to relax using meditatation and visualisation! Maybe you need some Reiki and angel guidance.
Whatever you decide is up to you. Now place this template within your sacred space, handbag or anywhere where you can look at it daily to maintain focus and fertility intention. Repeat this exercise monthly.
“New moon” energy lasts about 5 days and represents “new beginnings” and indicates the beginning of a new 28 day lunar cycle. Around this time many women seek a period of solace and quiet contemplation. Our bodies sometimes feel bloated and our moods swing. The moon controls the element of water – tides, seas, the natural seasons, births and deaths and the monthly cycle within a women’s uterus!

Our own inner rhythm is attuned to a universal sense of timing. Guided by the rising and setting of the moon, changes in temperature, and our own internal rhythm, we know when it is time to sleep, eat, procreate or be active. While our minds and spirits take time to focus and connect with the moon we can work with intention and natural cycles.
