With the approach of the Winter Solstice on Monday 21st December, this is the ideal opportunity to let go of what you no longer wish to take forward with you into the new year, and this is a perfect time to set your intentions for what you wish to create and manifest in your life.
This time is known as the festival of rebirth and the return of the sun. Once the longest night has passed, the days will increase in length – bringing an energy of optimism and hope.
I would highly recommend having a small ceremony of writing down and letting go of what you wish to release from your life. I will be having a bonfire and letting go by burning this paper on the fire. Candles or wood-burning stoves are also good.
You can then also set forth your intentions for the new year ahead by speaking them out loud, writing them down, or creating a vision board. Then let go and allow yourself to receive. Trust that you are supported and loved. Trust that you deserve all good.
“The purpose of a rose is to be a rose.
Your purpose is to be yourself.
You don’t have to run anywhere to become someone else.
You are wonderful just as you are.”
Thich Nhat Hanh
