What Are You Ready to Let Go Of?
This Winter Solstice asks us to leave behind those things that need to be left in the dark. We are encouraged to walk away from this baggage and welcome in the light, the New Year, the longer days and shorter nights. Not only do we have a potent New Moon, the changing signs of Saturn, the Winter Solstice, but we also have a full moon on New Year’s Day to really help us move forward into the light leaving the weight and burdens of the past year behind.
The Veil feels very thin right now. I state a desire to a friend of mine only to have it manifest an hour later. I think of a friend and suddenly they call, or I reach out to someone that was just thinking of me. I have such strong visions for my next big dream that it feels actualized already. Magic is closer than ever so we need to get clear with what we want, who we want to be, the world we want to live in and we must speak our truths about these desires. We must take actions on those little urges that are popping up around us. Join that yoga class you’ve been thinking about or start that YouTube channel everyone has been talking about. Call that old friend that is going through a hard time and allow that friendship to light up again. While we move forward, we are being asked to let go of the past; allow those past memories to come up, let yourself to feel them, and then release the emotions surrounding them. Admit your truth and learn to love it. We all have a balance of light and dark in us. Let’s release the discomfort and let the magic heal us.
Ritual to Let Go
This is an action ritual. The planets and energy in our Universe are asking us to let go so as to make room for magic. Big Magic. Life-changing magic. It’s time to make a list of the healthy urges you have been having and take action. Have you been feeling like starting a new eating plan? Have you realized you are working too hard and it’s taking a physical and emotional toll? Are you ready to let go of people you once loved because you know they will never stop hurting you? Are you ready to speak your truth about where you are, who you are and what’s happening in a way that will make sure you are heard? Write these signs, thoughts and urges down on a piece of paper. Write down what you need to let go of and what you want to call in. Write down what action you will take to make these things happen. Start them on the solstice. Know if you are changing up your eating plan that things will be tough over the holidays but start again the next day and be kind to yourself, acknowledging that you won’t get it right the first time. Allow the space necessary to let people go. Yes, you may be sad about letting go of that person that could never emotionally be there for you but keep reminding yourself that you want to, in fact need to, manifest better relationships with people. Allow yourself to state your truths even if it is hard at first. We are being asked to do these things, fail a little and get right back to it. We are ready for this new place in our lives that the Universe is co-creating with us. When you are done, burn the list. Outside is preferable, even if it is cold. Let’s ground this burning and call in earth, air, fire and water to help us. Drink a cup of water or tea while you burn the list. Thank the elements for helping us. Allow the feeling of Magic to wash over you and know that with everything you are letting go of, you are creating space for Magic to come fully into your life.
