January is my favorite time of year to let go of what no longer serves me so I can step into the new year with empowerment and clarity. I’ve included three rituals for you use to complete 2014 so you can welcome the best year of your life from a clear and empty space. At the end of this post, you will find the details for my one-day New Beginnings Workshop which will be held in Lafayette, California on January 25th. This workshop is the perfect space for you to let go of the past and create 2015 with commitment and inspiration.
Rituals to Complete the Past
1. Create a Year in Review: What about 2014 are you grateful for? Gratitude turns problems into gifts, chaos into peace, confusion into clarity, and the surprises into perfect timing.
Go through your 2014 Calendar and honor your experiences, challenges, and accomplishments month by month. Where did you choose love? What did you accomplish this past year that you would like to celebrate? What are your favorite memories that you never want to forget? Write down your accomplishments in your journal, and celebrate your abundance, generosity, love, and growth.
2. Let Go: Letting go is the path to freedom. As we let go, the tender ground of honesty, healing and love will carry us through the world. To let go is to release the images and emotions, the grudges and fears, the upset and disappointments of the past that bind our spirit.
This is your chance to consider the behavior, beliefs or habits of 2014 that you would like to leave behind. What negative beliefs no longer serve you? What bitterness is still in your heart? What pain are you ready to say goodbye to? Write what you’re letting go of on small slips of paper, and burn each fear, belief, or painful circumstance in a fire. Watch your past disappear. Honor this process with a bow or a prayer, asking the Divine for love, guidance, and support in completion.
3. Create Space: Creating space allows new energy channels of abundance, love, spirituality and creativity to flow. When your life is cluttered, your creative energies are blocked as well.
Now that you have completed your past emotionally, now you get to complete the past physically. This week I invite you to create space by eliminating energy drains. Tackle your home and let go of any items that no longer serve you. Donate clothes that you haven’t worn in a year to charity. Throw away expired spices and foods from the pantry. Do parts of your home bring up overwhelm, avoidance, and/or claustrophobia? Are there drawers that you refuse to open because of clutter and disorganization? Take action and face what needs to be faced. A whole new world is on the other side of this organization and completion.
