Ritual for a “1” New Year

At the beginning of a 1 year it is important to do ritual because you will be planting the seeds of the energy for the next 9 years.

1. Write down everything you want to release as you are going into the new year. Make your list, add to it if needs be, and when the list is finalized burn it. Release the ashes and say something along the lines of, “I release the old and transform the energy that I’ve given to these things into positive energy for change.” When anything you released comes into your mind quickly say, “Release.” It may take a while for the energy to dissipate because you have the habit of having certain feelings around those issues you released.

2. Clean your living space getting rid of clutter. Be willing to move items to the next deserving soul, even if you need to take it to something like Goodwill. Once the clutter has been reduced put sea salt in water and sprinkle it around each of your doorways and windows saying something like, “Salt and water as I pass thee, no friend nor foe may there be, except in true accord with me.” In other words, you are asking for protection from anyone who does not have your best interests in mind.

3. Take a bath with Epsom salts to cleanse your body. As you wash your body keep repeating, “I forgive and release.” Let any pictures that come into your mind move to the next like a slide show. Do not stop and analyze them. Remember to forgive yourself along the way.

4. Make a list of what you want to manifest in your life. Repeat the words of power, such as, “There is one power, the perfect power. I [your name] call on the perfect power to manifest the perfect [relationship, money, job, whatever] for me in harmony with my highest and best good.”
