New Year’s Eve Ritual ~ How To Release the Past

A simple solo rite to release the past year, reclaim any fragmented energy and start fresh from your place of power.

Often the end of a calendar year drives us to look at what we wish to create ahead of us, but based on our past.



We need not look back since that is not where we are going. Yet, at times the past can restrict us from moving forward with ease.



So, if last year yielded some less than desirable things, take a moment to quietly reflect what you wish to release E.G. unanticipated difficulties, heartache, drama, stress… so that you can proceed untethered.



How to release the past year:



black star tiny Breathe deeply and bring yourself to a grounded, centred state. Take your self back to that moment and reflect on how things played out, detaching from any emotional triggers you may be feeling.




black star tiny Consider your role in what transpired. Pull in understanding of any other parties involved’s roles at the time. Extract what you can now appreciate from the experience.




black star tiny If you are unable to find some lesson learned or wisdom from this, ask your Spirit Helpers (or your preference) to reveal it to you in time.




black star tiny If you feel that you erred, forgive yourself for; your behaviour, for allowing whatever happened to occur, for choosing a different tack.




black star tiny You are not forever tarnished with a big black mark on your soul. All is expansion and self-forgiveness returns you to balance, restoring your resilience. You didn’t come here to exhibit perfection. You came to learn and experience through flaws fabulously before you return to perfection.




black star tiny Then, imagine shining silvery strands of energy emanating from the scene flowing from it toward you as you draw the strands into your energy field. Keep drawing in this silvery energy as it is your power and aspects of Self which you are now reclaiming.




black star tiny When you feel there is no more to draw back into you, tell your Spirit Helpers that you now sever all ties to the experience forever more and that you wish to discard any stagnant, unclaimed or moribund energy into the Earth for transmutation.




black star tiny Repeat as many times as you wish for any number of events from the year past (of course you can go as far back as you like, it depends on you).




black star tiny When you are done with all the matters you want to release and have reclaimed all the energy invested. State the following either aloud or in your mind:




“I now release all emotional baggage that no longer serves me,


I am fully and perfectly healed in this moment across all thresholds of time.


It is done. It is done. It is done.”



{You can leave an offering of thanks if you so wish}
