✨a New Year Meditation that you can make as simple or as elaborate as you’d like🎉
gather your tools (what you have):
•herbs, resin, or incense to burn (juniper, cinnamon, allspice, patchouli)
•aura mist or intention oils (orange, cypress, pine, rose)
•paper strip or bay leaf to write intentions
•personal items/photos that you cherish
•items that represent each element
(Fire- candles, incense, salt lamp | Water- seashells, coral, driftwood | Earth- stones, soil, root, flowers | Air- feathers, windchimes, cloud/sky reps)
•healing crystals/stones such as Black Obsidian, Tourmaline, + Smoky Quartz offer grounding + protection; Selenite is cleansing + Quartz is also cleansing/an amplifier of energy; Amethyst is soothing + Rose Quartz invokes love; Tiger’s Eye offers stability + Kyanite stimulates awareness.
clean your home - sweep dirt from front of house to back. line windows + doors with salt. wash floors with basil, cinnamon, lemon, + salt.
take a cleansing salt bath or shower prior to cleansing your space, if possible.
open the windows + doors, purify your space with herbs, incense, or diffuse scents (for those who require a smoke-free cleanse).
anoint your doorknobs, window latches, + mirrors - fronts + backs with protective intentions via your oils. cast a protective circle, center your energy + call forth energy from the earth + elements as needed.
anoint the candle(s) with your intention oils + herbs, speaking your desires out loud.
anoint your crown, third eye, + feet (as well as other spiritual centers) with your oils, again stating your intentions as you apply.
anoint your tools + personal items with the oils - healing crystals, stones, special jewelry, mementos, etc.
on a strip of paper or bay leaf- write down what you wish to attract in 2021 + on the other side write what you wish to release as 2020 ends.
burn the paper or leaf over your candle, capture the ashes if you can + toss out your front + back entries.
if you have bits of old burn bouquets, candle remnants, or anything to burn from 2020, add it to the fire.
an affirmation to state while cleansing + burning, to tweak as you desire - “I cleanse my space to fulfill my intentions + aid in my healing + expansion. I leave 2020 behind me as a year of lessons, growth, + adaptation. may 2021 provide me with greater chances for me to evolve + continue to ascend along my path. I will meditate, manifest, + do the work necessary to fulfill my set intentions. I thank my spirits, ancestors, guide(s) for their support + guidance throughout my life + welcome their energy as we enter a new year.”
return excess energy to the earth + ground your spirit. take deep breaths + drink plenty of water. record your dreams + thoughts.
all my love + a wish for you to stay ever so magickal + safe as we enter into 2021🎉
