New Year Ritual - Welcome 2021


The year 2020 was a particularly educational year. It has distanced us physically from each other, but at the same time it has allowed old acquaintances to blossom. It has pushed us into our homes and offered walks in nature as the only escape. It has shut us off from the world and cleared the way for us to turn more inward. It has made us realise that the only thing we have left in the end is nature and love.

For this ritual you will need:

Enough time to connect with your inner intuition
2 loose sheets of paper
1 pen
1 small candle
1 lighter (tea light)
1 glass filled with drinking water
A quiet place to write/turn inwards.

This ritual is divided into two parts.

In the morning or during the day:

Get comfortable and sit with your back straight either on the edge of a chair, or cross-legged on the floor. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths in and out. Then look back at the year 2020. Answer the following question, not with your head, but with your intuition. Pay attention to what comes to your mind first and write the answers on one of the papers:

“Who or what do I want to detach from energetically, spiritually, emotionally, mentally or physically?”

After you have written everything down, hold the piece of paper to your heart and speak or think to yourself the words: “I detach from everything that holds me back from unfolding my true self.” Think of all the things you have written down and feel with your whole heart how the burden falls away from you. Imagine that it has already happened.

Next, fold the paper and place it on a windowsill, behind a closed window, under the lit tea light. Let the candle burn out to the end. When the candle has burnt out, burn the note too, in a safe place, and scatter the ashes back into nature (potted plants are also welcome).

In the Evening:

Sit down again, this time with a glass of water, your pen and the second note. Again, take a few moments to relax. Ask yourself the following question and answer it from your heart:

“What do I really want to experience in the next year, who do I want to have by my side, how do I want to feel and what do I want to achieve?”

When you have finished, put the piece of paper to your chest. Visualise the situations you have written down and feel them with all your senses. See, smell, taste, hear and feel them as if they were already your reality now. Then put this piece of paper on your bedside table, under the glass of water. The next morning, drink the whole glass with a feeling of love and gratitude.

I wish you a free, light-filled and healthy start into the new year!

With all my Love
