What I love about rituals is making them meaningful to the person doing them. Below you will find a ritual I have used over and over and in many different ways. Use the tools you have on hand; call in the allies that you work with daily; and know that nothing bad will happen as long as your intention is good.
This is a ritual to release anything that doesn’t serve you. We use the power of the full moon to enhance our request. There is power in our words (spoken, thought or written) so be aware of what you request.
- White Candle
- Clear Quartz Crystal
- A bowl of spring water
- Paper and Pen
Create sacred space inside or out. It’s especially nice if the moon is in your view.
Ask your allies: Goddess, God, Spirit, your Angels, animals, ancestors, to come forth and to surround you in white light.
Light the candle.
Place the quartz in the spring water.
Make a list of what you want to let go of: people, habits, work, concepts, whatever is holding you back from moving ahead in 2021.
“By the power of earth, fire, water and air,
Out with the old and in with the new.
Blessing, oh, Spirit, for all that I do.
Let go of the past and all that is bad,
Empower me with grace and all that is glad.”
Or words that resonate more closely with you.
Read your list aloud (unless you don’t want to).
Rip, soak or burn list.
Blow out the candle.
Thank your allies for their support.
Rinse hands with water and take out quartz.
Carry your stone as a symbol of what you want to call into your life.
Journal about your experience and keep track of how you feel in your life throughout the next moon cycle.
