are about potential fulfilled, that is about aligning the chakras
with the Divine Plan.
The New Moon Blessings, on the other hand, are about exploring those aspects
of yourself which are holding you back from living your Life's Purpose. The New Moon
helps bring you face to face with your Shadow Self and hidden talents.
