It was a warm spring evening in Paris. March 20, 2004.
I was looking for love and I wasn't ashamed to admit it. I had just arrived in Paris, staying at the flat of a friend who was away.
It was late afternoon and I knew I had just under an hour to get to the Eiffel Tower.
Why? Because it was New Moon night and I was in Paris – of course I was going to go and make some wishes!
I had been told that taxis in Paris weren't too expensive, so I flagged the first one I saw on the street, just outside where I was staying in the 6th arrondissement. A couple of euros and ten minutes later, I was under the stunning monument that is the Eiffel Tour, the centre-piece of the City of Light.
I fancied that the spire at the top of it was going to make the PERFECT conductor for my wishes as I sent them out to the Universe.
I wished for love, I wished to live in Paris, I wished for the work that I needed for that to happen, I wished to meet new friends … and I wished to make more wishes at the Eiffel Tower.
And all five came true. But not necessarily the way that I expected them to!
And not all at once.
One thing my magical time living in Paris taught me is that New Moon wishes and intentions really do come true.
I invite to you start to work with the Moon. Start with New Moon intentions and see where it all takes you. Your wishes might even change along the way and/or come true in amazing ways!
The cycle is waxing and waning, New and Full Moon, intention and surrender. Start now and give yourself at least a few months of working with the lunar cycle and notice the amazing changes.
Go deep. Invest in yourself. The Moon is free!
