Looking for a way to call in healing energy and open to up to receive all that a new year offers? Try some of the rituals on the list below and let me know how it goes.
- Feng Shui your house. Repair broken items, mend clothing, or recycle what you no longer use. Thoroughly clean your house, sweeping out physical and energetic dirt. Open your doors and windows to usher out the old and welcome in the new. You may even want to light sage or incense to help clear the air. Paint your front door red or place a bowl of round fruit on the table to remind you of the abundance and prosperity coming your way.
2. Meditate with the Yearly Examen. This is prayful way to look back through the year, noticing what you were grateful for, the memories of love that you may have forgotten, wounds that still need healing, and to see where God is guiding you to focus your energy next. Close your eyes and listen to a guided meditation, journal about it, or clean out your emails and texts to spur your memories of the year.
3. Burn all that you want to leave behind. Use a firepit, fireplace, or even just a candle to burn away your mistakes, regrets, fears, and limiting beliefs. Create a list on a piece of paper and then watch them burn away. After you have burned them, replace them with new ideas. Write down hopes, dreams, gratitudes, or new beliefs and keep them in a Hope Jar for the new year. (These are great to read on New Years Eve next year.)
4. Release toxins in your body. Schedule a massage, energy healing session, or just take a warm bath with epsom salts.
5. Imagine your future. Find photos or artwork to hang in your home that remind you of what you want to bring into your life. Maybe it is people laughing, a couple dancing, landscapes of places you want to travel, or abstract scenes that make you feel a certain way. Gather together meaningful objects to put on display. They could be books that you loved, gifts that you have received, or even just beautiful objects. You may want to include objects that will encourage you to participate in your hobbies more often. For example, leave a canvas and paints sitting in the corner of the room.
