Did you know that the Winter Solstice happened yesterday, marking the end of an emotional cycle for you? …and if you’re in the northern hempishere of this darling planet? Then you just enjoyed your Summer Solstice! Either way it marks the end of a cycle.
This year I feel it’s particularly important for us to create a magical ritual. You see the last few months has seen you and me (if we’ve been brave enough) shed the old. It’s been brought to us to shed. “Friends” that aren’t really friends, “relationships” that you now realise drained you, “jobs” “bosses” “clients” “customers” “colleagues,” who didn’t respect you, do right by you – and dynamics between you and the world that you realised with an “UGH” you were done with.
In fact, it’s safe to say that if you’ve been brave enough to follow your hearts calling the last few months would have been a time of letting go of the old. As nature would have it there was some pretty wild weather with high winds and lots of rain and as much as I do think it’s part of global warming, I also always think it’s nature blowing out the cobwebs and washing us clean. All that stuff is almost a distant memory…and so…
So, now you’re here aren’t you? You’re done with the old and the new is beginning to peak through in your life, a little like the first daffodils of spring. You’re meant for something better:
Real respect. Real friendship. Real support. Real love. Real whatever it is that you haven’t been experiencing.
Yes it’s time. So as nature is having it’s ritual of the longest night or the longest day, so we are in sync with nature.
An ending has occurred.
Wanna celebrate it with me?
Here’s how you do it:
Creating Your Magical Ritual:
Sit in a circle of stones, semi precious stones, flowers, twigs, leaves, shells, beach glass, special things from nature and light a candle or candles if you’re candle crazy like me! (Have a notepad and pen.)
Close your eyes and bring into your mind the past few months. Remember what happened? What they said? What they did? What you then did? Ok good. We’re going back so we can forward. Write down every single gift you got because of it:
- Real confidence. The kind not affected by what anybody says or does. BOOM.
- My power BACK. Forever.
- That I’m actually alright. That I’m actually a really good person who just didn’t choose wisely. The gift? I trust myself now.
Now get very very thankful. Say out loud, “Thank you xxxx for teaching me xxxx about myself and about how I must now move forward with this gift.”
Really thank the past. “The gift I got was far greater than the pain you inflicted on me. Thank you.”
“The pain lasted a certain amount of time, but this gift I now have because of what happened? I have for a lifetime, thank you!”
When you have written all your thank you’s out, it is time for you to get quiet, go within and forgive them and yourself. Now you have the gift, you can forgive them. We are not condoning their actions or yours but we are saying – darling woman – it’s time to let go of the resentment and leave this nicely tucked away “in my learning box.” “It has no need to come with me on my next part of my journey.”
Touch each stone, each element that is around you and say, “I forgive you, I make peace with my past, I am now free,” and breathe in and out. Then go to the next element you have around you. For deeper healing and deeper forgiveness access my book ‘Turn Yourself On.’ Or book in with somebody fab for subconscious healing. But for now YOU making this statement to yourself and to the universe? Is magical in its effect. Because you are drawing a line in the sand and saying. ENOUGH!
Now it’s time to create your magical new! It’s time to set your intentions! Are you ready? On a fresh piece of paper write out everything you want to create in the next 6 months until the next summer/winter solstice. Ask that any blocks, fears, vagueness be easily lifted from you. Once again close your eyes and with the power of the Solstice, know that you are in sync with nature. And together, with nature at your back, are creating your highest possibility in the next 6 months.
Ask, “What’s possible for me?” “Now I am free to start fresh, what could I create?” Allow yourself to flow and dream and see and feel. Write it all down. And then write, “I’d like this or something higher.” Now see that every single stone/element around you represents the new dream you want. Touch each stone and bless it, “Thank you, my good is here.” Breathe in and out, then go to the next stone.
And so it is done!
You’re a magical spirit in a human body that needs to touch the magical and invite nature in. Your ceremony can be 10 minutes or the whole koo-koo-kaboodle.
The trick (it’s magical) is:
To know you’re important.
To know you’re worth a million dollars
To know you are meant to experience the greatest love, the greatest respect and the greatest happiness this lifetime.
Your ritual now honours you at your highest light.
My love to you,
