End of Year – Exercise – Symbolic Energy Release and Creation
To end this year and start a new I wanted to share with you a year end ritual that I was taught by my mentors and have now adopted.
It is a symbolically to let go of everything from the past year that no longer is serving us. And to create a space for the gifts the New Year is ready to bring forth for you.
You can do this ritual by yourself with a group, with family members or friends… I recommend that you do anytime within the last week of a year and the first two weeks of a new year.
Step 1 - Take out a piece of paper and write down in a list everything you want to let go of from 2016. Everything that you are ready to leave behind. That includes any old thoughts or beliefs that do no serve you anymore or any experiences you want to move on from. This includes relationships that you know aren’t for your highest good, or any feelings that are holding you back, expressed or not expressed, feelings of resistance or resentment, fear and also any physical conditions that may be holding you back and maybe things like your home, a room or space you want to fix that no longer feels like it serves you.
Then what you do is that you take that list and you thank all those items that are on that list for having been with you and for all the lessons they have given or shown you.
Then you make a statement like this… “I now let go of all these things and anything else that does not serve me, my visions, my dreams, and desires for a glorious 2017. Next you take that piece of paper and you burn it in a safe place like a stainless steel bowl, kitchen sink, outside and if it is not safe to burn it then tear it up into little pieces and flush in down the toilet. What you have done is energetically let go of all the things you want to leave behind from 2016.
Step 2 – Speak out loud everything you are grateful for in the past year, your successes, wins, gratitude, your growth, overcoming obstacles, building relationships, accomplishments, achievements etc…. and offer them into the fire asking that they be amplified.
Because in this step you are calling what you would like to bring forward into 2017 from last year. Read Speak out loud into the fire, a candle… (but not the toilet) if you flushed something down the toilet it is time to light a candle and do the next two steps there).
Now speak everything you want to welcome in – into 2017 – feelings like courage, confidence clarity, abundance, going for it or empowerment, security, peace, fulfilling relationships, peace and calm. Experiences, you want for your career or business success, achievements you would like, health. Just imagine you are offering those intentions into the Universe through a Universal flame that is igniting the pathway, and as you do that you are igniting it now……. Allow the flame to intensify and give energy to your 2017 intentions.
Step 3 – Now sit and feel the energy for about 10 minutes, feel the energy, visualize that it is all happening for you. You’ve created great momentum for yourself, what you’ve experienced 2016 – living and creating more than ever before, taking risks, stepping out of your comfort zone. Perhaps saying yes to an opportunity that you were not sure of and course correcting along the way.
Visualize gaining more tools, going further, honing your skills, staying in the learning, staying in a support system that continues to help you build grater momentum and wins throughout next year. It is your year to play full out. To be all-in and to make a decision for you, for your life, for your goals……
I want to tell you from my heart – how much I care about each of you, how much I love supporting you. I encourage you to stay plugged into the energy of support and creating and achieving your goals.
I want you to know that you make a difference, you make an impact in the world in a huge way, just by being you. So plug into the love, the truth of who you are, because your essence is love.
Just by shining your light and desiring to shine it brighter… you are doing just that….
I thank you from the bottom of my heart for trusting me, trusting me with the opportunity to guide you on your journey and your next evolution of becoming…. To continue to creating an extraordinary 2017 – and a life filled with love and joy and prosperity!
