In Meditation and Rituals

A Ritual for a New Year

The New Year is a time for reflection, letting go, and moving forward. Around this time of year, we get inundated by promises or declarations to never make promises. Regardless of whether “resolutions” are for you, this is a powerful time of year. The ritual which follows is designed to support you in bringing forth your heart’s desires in the coming year.

Supplies

4 pieces of paper. Plain paper is fine but if you want to make it extra special. Then get yourself 1 piece of seeded paper, 1 piece of silver paper, 1 piece of red paper, and 1 piece of wishing paper.

1 or more markers.

Lighter and firesafe dish.

At least 30 minutes.

Ritual

Audio recording of ritual meditation

Find a comfortable position. Allow yourself to notice your breath. Allow your eyes to close. Let your thoughts go. Notice the air around you. The weight of it on your skin. Notice your heart beating. Allow time to pass unmarked.

When you feel ready, let your mind wander across time. Decisions you’ve made that you want to make differently in the future. Decisions you want to keep making. Things you want to manifest. Things you want to let go of. How you want to be in the world. Let words and pictures become energies in your mind. Sit in these energies until you feel the urge to move to the next step.

On the first piece of paper, write down a habit you want to change. Light fire to the paper to let it go while declaring “I no longer smoke”, “I am not eating unhealthy foods”, etc.

Spend a few moments back in meditation, connecting with the energies of who you are across time.

On the next piece of paper, write down something you no longer want to be. Declare it out loud to the world. “I am not a smoker.”, “I give up frivolous spending.”, etc.

Spend a few moments back in meditation, connecting with the energies of who you are across time.

On the third piece of paper, write down something new you’d like to manifest in the coming year. Take it outside and plant it in the earth. Plant it somewhere you can see often to help you remember what you want. “I have plenty of savings.”, “I breathe easily.”, “I have great love.”, etc.

Spend a few moments back in meditation, connecting with the energies of who you are across time.

On the fourth piece of paper, write down something you’d like to become. You can add this to water, write it on silver paper, or on a mirror using a dry-erase market. Remember who you are. “I am healthy”, “I am beautiful.”, “I am prosperous.”

Spend a few moments back in meditation. Replay each of your offerings if it’s helpful. Take into your heart the knowing that your intentions are pure. You have made significant progress toward becoming your full self.
