A New Year Ritual

Rituals shift our state of mind through structured symbolic acts. Carl Jung said that symbols are the language of the soul as they connect to the intuitive rather than the rational mind. The purpose of empowerment rituals is to connect with what is in our highest and best good. As we perform rituals to manifest a job, romance, or a new home we are calling on our super conscious to bring the cosmic energy into alignment to create our desire.

I’ve been told that the first twelve days of a new year are the most important to pay attention to what we want to manifest for the new year. Pay attention to how you answer the questions below, revisit and update them during the twelve days. Clean out your drawers and closets, getting rid of the old.

What brought you joy in 2017?
What lessons did you learn in 2017?
Where did you experience grief during 2017?
What do you want to release from the old year?
Who do you want to help this year?
How do you want to play in 2018?
Where do you want to experience growth in 2018?
What do you want to manifest in 2018?
How will you affirm you are worthy of what you want to manifest?

Burn what you want to release and keep your hopes for the future. Happy New Year!
