Happy New Years Gift- journal prompts to reflect and integrate this past year .

I’m not sure where these questions originated or who the original author is. If you do please share and I’ll add. I like doing these question every year around New Years. It’s so interesting to look back on and reflect. Each year is so voluptuous in learning, healing and evolvement.

Here we go….

1) What was the single best thing that happened this past year ?

2) What was the single most challenging thing that happened this past year?

3) What was an unexpected joy this year?

4) What was an unexpected obstacle ?

5) Pick 3 words to describe this past year.

6) Pick 3 words your partner would use to describe their year. ( without asking)

7) What are the best books you read this year?

8) What was your biggest personal change from January to December of this year?

9) What was your single biggest time waster this year ?

10). What was the best way you used your time this year ?

11)What is the biggest thing you’ve learned this year?

12) Create a phrase or statement that describes this past year for you.

I hope you enjoy and savour the taste of these reflections into your whole body and soul. And so it is ūüôā

Happy New Year friends ūüéČūüėė. I feel like my word for next year is expansion. Look for new offerings.. especially a return to offering healing sessions.

8 Simple Rituals to Invite In Prosperity & Positive Energy for 2015.

new years2

New Year’s is a time filled with many rituals and traditions in a vast number of cultures to welcome the New Year with good energy, wealth and health. ¬†New Year’s is like a time of renewal and rebirth…a new slate. ¬†So here are some ways to close the energy of the past and invite new prosperous, healthy and flowing energies into your home and life.

1) An old Pagan tradition is clearing out your entrance way.  Vacuum or sweep up any old negative energy, negative thoughts, or stagnant energy.  Clean the floor too with some vinegar, sage oil if you can as you mop it.  Imagine sweeping the room clean of anything that is not of love, not of light and send it outside.  Only positive, uplifting, flowing energy may come through your home.  They say to leave the broom across the door to seal out the negativity at least overnight or until the first visitor comes. Note that they say you should sweep before January 1st, before midnight as anything after that would be clearing away good luck.

2)  In Spain, people eat 12 grapes, one each at the stroke of midnight to signify good luck for the next 12 months.  It is said that that some people through the grapes in their wine to represent the last twelve months and the twelve to come.  As midnight strikes they eat them as quickly as possible one at a time from their wine glass and make a wish.

3) In the Philippines round shapes are celebrated as they are thought as symbolic to coins and abundance.  They suggest placing an abundance of round fruit on your tables to welcome prosperity.  And for those 80s girls, get out your polka dots as wearing polka dots are also said to bring good luck in their tradition.

4) Clean out your purse ladies.  Men clean out your wallets.  Throw out old receipts or paper you no longer need.  Make sure to keep the slot where you keep your bills clean and free of any receipts as it blocks the flow of money.  Invite in prosperity while clearing out the old.

5) Pay off any debts or bills you can before the New Year.  If you owe someone money pay them back.

6) Cleaning the house before New Years is a good way to clear any old, stagnant energy.  While you are cleaning, think of clearing old energy out and inviting wealth and health in.  Open doors and windows if you can even just for moments to clear out the old energy.  You may want to check out my article How to Be a Bad-Ass Goddess While You Mop Your Floors for an energy clearing mopping recipe.

7)¬†A good ol’ sage clearing in the house. ¬†Be sure to open a window or door to let out any of the negativity and old energy. ¬†Make sure to get int the nooks and crannies and corners.

8) Make a mini altar on your kitchen table. Fill it with large bowl or plate of round fruits, pomegranates, apples, oranges, grapefruit, grapes etc.  Light some candles.  Get another giant bowl and get your family to write at least 3 wishes each for 2015.  Place it in the bowl and eat a grape for each wish. Grab hands and form a circle of energy and send your wishes to the sky and the earth.

Enjoy the New Year and may it be filled with prosperity, joy and good health.

New Year’s Wishes Ritual.

magic dustYeehaw…New Year’s. ¬†A new time, a new slate. A fresh beginning. ¬†Like a trail of snow, untouched, waiting for your feet to mark imprints towards uncharted territory. ¬†2014 was a doosey…a clearing, shedding, deconstructing and collapsing of what no longer serves us. ¬†It was a cleansing, a cleaning out of what will no longer work.

“God calls us throughout our life to severe grace, the grace of the cocoon. ¬†We are called to separate from the old, to die in order to be born. ¬†If we open ourselves to this severe grace, we encounter God in new places: in the cyclone, in the dark, in the crisis that shatters our old confining consciousness. ¬†It is this severity that makes us new.” ¬†From First Light by my fave author, Sue Monk Kidd.

Kinda fits for 2014 doesn’t it?

I can tell you it was in those moments of shattering chaos or crisis that I did meet and experience Grace. ¬†It was a profound freedom, and uniting of myself and my soul. ¬†Finally that which was obscuring me from my truth…gone so I could sit there and meet myself. ¬† A remembering and a merging into a new being was occurring and waiting to be born into life.

2015 is about birthing that new being. ¬†It feels like a year filled with a whole bunch of new….new beginnings….new experiences…new relationships or partnerships…a new way to do life. ¬†Rebirth. ¬†Freedom. ¬†Excitement. ¬†NEW!!!

I’m excited…and at times overwhelmed. ¬†I listed a few goals I have and I notice a heaviness immediately. ¬†So screw that idea. Having vision doesn’t have to be heavy, burdensome or dark.

What if we went about this new year a little differently. ¬†What if we made it about wishes….what wishes do you have this year? ¬†What do you wish for your expression in the world? ¬†What do you wish for yourself in 2015? ¬† What do you wish to try or experience?

So rather than making a list of heavy, performance marking goals, list your wishes! Wish for fun. Wish to indulge in magic more often. ¬†Wish to easily and joyfully accomplish….Wish to go a ballet this year because you love it. ¬†Wish to take a whole weekend for yourself. ¬†Wish to write a chapter of a book. ¬†Wish for great family fun like a picnic at the park. ¬† Wish for success and completion of a project. ¬†Wish for participating in monthly new moon rituals. ¬†Wish for pulling back and being gentle. Wish for connection.

So, what do you wish to experience this year? ¬†List it and wish away. ¬†Blow some snow, glitter or salt as you read aloud each wish and offer to Mother Earth to keep and hold for you so she can assist you in your birthing. Or throw some Epson salt into a fire for each wish or some glitter and voice it to the heavenly skies, the shining stars and glorious moon. ¬† Share your wishes with your friends and family and get the kiddies to make wishes too. ¬†Tell them it’s magic glitter so their wishes can come true. Or light a candle for each wish and blow them out like you would on a birthday cake. ¬†Heck, make a cake and light a bunch of candles on it. ¬†Blow them out and feast. ¬†If you can list 50 wishes or more….go on…I dare ya’!

New beginnings and wishes is fun, uplifting, inspiring.

Wish away.  Happy, healthy, joyful, magical, fun New Year.

And so it is.
