Hey there, friends!
I’d like to share with you a little Yule ritual my sister and I performed a few nights ago. We wanted to have a fire, but it was raining as it so often is in Pittsburgh. So instead we lit a candle to serve as our bonfire.
The purpose of the ritual was to set our intentions for the new year ahead. We made a list of positive affirmations, wishes, and desires for 2019.
On my list I had things like:
Fearlessly embrace love
Grow my blog
Use my voice and set boundaries
Buy a new car
After creating the list, we meditated and visualized what we wanted to manifest. This was a very emotionally charged experience, in a good way. I was in a good mood to begin with, and focusing on the person I wanted to become made me that much happier.
When we were finished visualizing and meditating on our lists, we burned them in the candle flame and gathered the ashes in a pot. Mine burned quickly so my sister said I must have had very good energy and that my intentions would surely come true in the new year.
We took the ashes outside and sprinkled them into the wind. I watched as my wishes and affirmations blew away into the universe with a beautiful moon looking on.
I wish you all a very prosperous and productive 2019. May all your dreams come true and may your loved ones be happy and healthy.
Take care, and don’t forget to take your medications!
