It's that time of year where you start reassessing how your year has gone and where you will be going in the coming new year.
The New Year is a time for setting long term goals and long term intentions of what you want to achieve and where you see yourself. It's a time to poject forth and set up the energy necessary for your success with conscious intention and visualization. The practice is pretty much the same as with every New Moon but just on a bigger scale, a longer term scale. As a matter of fact the New Year will be in New Moon energy as the New Moon is happening on January 2nd and will be fully waned at approxximately 12:33pm CST. So you'll have that energy coming into play as well. A time of going within and reassessing, resetting, reconnecting and realigning with your Soul, Higher Self and Source. Receiving the guidance and clarity needed for your next step. Recalling your energy. Recharging and reconnecting to your power.
With that said, I wanted to share with you a simple way to do the end of year big cleanse & clear to set yourself up for success. You will need to address the energy of your space as well as your bio-energy field. There are many ways to do this but here is one way...
First step is to clean your house physically. When setting up the tools and the plan of cleaning your home space, you can incorporate a "Spiritual Wash" to physically and energetically clear & cleanse your floors, window frames, door frames and furniture. Here is how you create a Spiritual Wash:
Fill a bucket of water. Once filled to your liking, focus on the water asking Source to bless the water as well as giving thanks to this element of water in helping you to do this work. You can do this with prayer and adding in there the element of gratitude and asking for help in the goal you want to achieve with cleansing and clearing your space.
Next add 1/2 cup to 1 cup of Florida water. This can be bought at metaphycisal shops or Latino markets. I've even seen them at your general local super markets but if you can't find it, amazon has it.
Next add 10 drops of Rosemary essential oil into the bucket of water. Rosemary transmutes & repels negative energy, is cleansing, helps bring in clarity into your life, brings in the energy of Love into your space and protection.
mix this with your hand (if your'e not allergic or senstive to essential oils) in a clockwise direction and as you turn the spiritual wash, speak or whisper your intention into the water. You can say it in your head as well but the spoken word contains a unique vibrational frequency and adds the element of sound.
Next, Blast the music of your liking and get to cleaning! Specifically music which uplifts your mood, your state of Being. You also have the option of playing Gregorian or Solfeggio Music. Uplifitting Music saturates the space with high vibratory energy and transmutes negative energy. Music also adds the element of sound to this practice.
If you don't have the time to do a thorough cleansing, cleaning and clearing process for your space, you can just use sound and smoke (smudging with herb of choice) to serve this purpose.
Next is to cleanse and clear your mind, body and spirit with a 20 minute warm spiritual bath of 1-2c of Sea Salt, 7 drops each of Rosemary & Lavender essential oil. You can also use dried herbs but keep in mind your pipwork when using dried herbs. Make sure the herbs are small enough to not cause a problem with your drainage. Option is using a mesh bag to add the herbs into and letting it steep in your bath for a few minutes before stepping in.
Using the same method as you did with the Spiritual Wash, focus on your bath water asking Source to bless the water as well as giving thanks to this element of water in helping you to do this work. Again, you can do this with prayer and adding in there the element of gratitude and asking for help in the goal you want to achieve with cleansing and cleraing your body, mind and spirit.
Once you are done with your bath and are settled, start with an intention setting & releasing ceremony.
You can do this by taking a moment to think about what you want to bring into the New year and write it down as a list or as a letter on a sheet of paper.
Next dedicate at least 11 minutes of focused Meditation to connect to your Higher Self and Source to reconnect, blend with this higher vibrational energy and sit in your power.
At the end of your meditation, take you list outside and burn it, releasing the ashes to the winds to carry it out into the Universe for you.
And that's it!
This covers all of the basics. It's a bit of a process however you can do what you can and what you are comfortable with as well as how much of it you think you need. But these steps ensure your space is taken care of, you are taken care of and your order to the universe is taken care of.
With that said, I wish you infinite abundance, love and joy for many moons and years to come.
Happy Holidays Beautiful!
