A New Year’s Fire Ritual…

As this year comes to a close, what are some of things you hope to leave behind in 2022?

This could be anything from the personal to the global, from a behavior to a story you carry that’s no longer serving you.

Every New Year’s Eve, I do a fire ritual, where I write those things that I no longer need to carry with me into the new year… old judgments, hurts, or habits that keep me from being more authentically me, more free, more centered, and more empowered in love and strength.

These old stories are written on pieces of torn paper, which are then thrown into the fire.

Last year, it was an outside fire pit in CA.

This year, a fireplace in NH.

If you don’t have a safe place to build a fire, you can tear the papers into tiny shreds and throw them away. Use a shredder perhaps! It doesn’t matter what method you use.

The ritual is in the symbolic claiming of your own power and the power in letting go.

A clearing the way for something new.
A new way of being in yourself.

Won’t you join me?
