Energy flows where attention goes!
The new year is a time for beginnings, so take a moment to perform a ceremony or two, alone or with friends and family. Acknowledge that you made it through another year, a symbolic passage. Honor old traditions and create new ones with special gatherings, delicious food, rituals and prayers.
Often, we make resolutions at this time of year. Whenever you want to set a new goal for yourself, start by setting your intention with a clear affirmation and visualization. Take the time to become clear about what you want, but then simply declare it. Say to the Universe: “Here is my goal. Make it so.” But know that you cannot tell the Universe exactly how and when your goal will be achieved.
The word “intention” is used in many ways. We use it to mean that what we believe strongly to be true helps to shape our experience. If we intend to break a bad habit or to set a goal to improve our lives, and we believe that it is possible, then the paths and opportunities to reach our goal will open up.
We’ve seen this phenomenon again and again. And the reverse is also true. If we believe that making a change in our lives is going to be difficult or impossible to do, then it’s more likely that we will experience failure. Our patterns of negative or positive thoughts shape our reality.
Intend for your goal to manifest in a manner that is for your highest good and greatest joy. This is very important, as intentions that are created out of desperation, fear of failure or ego issues will backfire. You may get what you want, but the outcome will disappoint. Alternatively, you may get the exact opposite of what you want. But intentions that are genuinely made for your highest good and greatest joy tend to manifest in a positive way.
Whether you have been looking for increased respect, contentment, fun, financial security, job satisfaction, self-esteem, romance or simply the best life possible for yourself, affirmations and visualizations can be an important part of your campaign to achieve your goals. If done regularly and with sincerity, they really can insight change. It is important that you be kind to yourself and others at the same time.
Everything in the Universe is connected, but unfolds in perfect divine order. Do not be attached to a timeline or to a particular way for your goal to be realized. Allow your desires to unfold in the perfect order and manner. When we have expectations and become attached to them, we can block the natural flow of energy. If we remain open, often we will receive something even better or more appropriate than what we imagined.
This aura cleansing ceremony will help you to start fresh with clear intentions:
Intention Bath Ritual for the New Year
Take a magical bath to connect with the purity of your spirit.
First, clean your tub. Draw your bath and shut off the water. Take some sea salt in your palm and pour it gently into the water. Add some drops of your favorite essential oils. Stir around.
Step into your bath and get comfortable. The purpose of this is to dissolve those things that clog up your daily connection to the divine. Dip your hand in the water and touch your third eye and say:
Dwells within me
I am truth
And I am beauty.
Feel your doubts, which separate you from truth and beauty, slip into the water and become purified. Surround yourself with love and light.
Give some thought to dedicating your life to making our world a better, safer, more beautiful place, and to helping those who deserve it and doing random acts of kindness.
