13 Ways to Release 2013
The countdown is on. 2013 is coming to a close. I want to invite to release the year and be ready to receive the New Year. It’s important to release what is no longer serving you so you can start the new year fresh. Otherwise it’s like crawling into a warm comfy bed with crisp white sheets and you have dirty feet. Ick.
It’s also important to release the past so you are able to CELEBRATE all of your amazing accomplishments and be ready to create your 2014 Vision for even more good amazing stuff to flow into your life.
Here are 13 Ways to Release 2013 and Be Ready to Receive 2014
Acknowledge 2013 wasn’t perfect. No year ever is
Say Good-Bye to all the “not so good stuff” from 2013
Write a list of everything you want to release. All the events, experiences, situations, relationships which will no longer serve you in the coming year
Burn your list. Toss it in the fire place, take the list outside and light a match. Watch the all of the icky stuff burn away
Forgive yourself for the all the “not so good stuff”
Toss, Pitch, Donate any physical items which are dragging you down. Anything that brings up a bad memory or anything that makes you say YUCK and anything related to the list which you just burnt
Take a Salt Bath. Literally wash away the past year. Take 1 cup of table salt and add it to a warm bath. Scrub the salt water over your skin. Then take a shower to wash the salt off and start the New Year off clean.
Smudge your Home. Clear the old energy out of your home using the Native American technique called smudging. Light the smudge stick and fan the flame with your hand or feather. Walk through your home and cleanse the area. Click here for more on how to smudge
Now that you have released all of the icky parts of 2013 I want to take time and acknowledge yourself for all of the wonderful achievements and accomplishments of the past year.
Write a list of everything you feel good about from 2013. Keeping up with a healthy habit all year, maintaining a healthy life style, building nurturing relationships with family/friends, practicing extreme Self-Care, being financially sound, living in a home that you love.
Reflect back on the past 12 months and write down what you are most proud of achieving each month starting in January. Celebrating an anniversary, completing a home improvement project, taking that amazing vacation you’ve dreamed about, receiving a promotion, taking a new job, welcoming a new baby to the family.
Read your list out loud. Read it to yourself, your spouse, your best friend, your children
Feel Gratitude as you read each accomplishment. What I want for you is to feel deeply grateful for all you have achieved and appreciate yourself for the wonderful amazing past year
CELEBRATE all of the amazing fabulous things from 2013 and prepare to receive an even more abundant 2014.
What do you really want in 2014?
