For weeks I have been “preaching” that we needed to release 2020. It is always important to release negative experiences, thoughts, and feelings however I was being guided to share with everyone that this year more than ever it was a MUST in order to make room for more love, light, and positive opportunities as we moved into 2021.
So like always I held a burning ceremony on New Year’s Eve. This year where I live we are under a “Shelter in Place” order. Meaning we can only do things with people in our household. So it was just the three of us. I did a guided mediation with my family and then we spent some time writing a list of all the things we wanted to release from 2020. We made a second list of our wishes, goals, and intentions for 2021.
We stood holding hands around the fire (like the Whos in Whoville) We took turns sharing what we were grateful for in 2020. Then we looked to the sky and asked our ancestors to watch over us and guide us into the prosperity of 2021. Then we each placed our list of things we wanted to release on the fire. After a few minutes, we placed our lists of wishes, goals, and intentions on the fire.
The energy was so very powerful, yet filled with much peace. We stayed outside for an hour laughing and remembering things we did that last year.
Everyone went in and I stayed outside by myself. That is when it happened. I was just staring at the fire, my heart filled with much gratitude when I felt this overwhelming urge to cry. The tears poured from my eyes. There was no sound. There was no wind. It was like the earth went silent. I had no idea why I was crying. It was not in my control. I was not sad. Just prior to this I felt so much inner peace. I guess this was part of what I needed to release. I cried for at least 30 minutes. Then as quickly as it started it stopped. The pop from the crackling fire woke me up. I felt that inner peace again. My heart filled with love.
Sometimes we don’t even know what we need to release. We have to trust and be open to the process.
“I release what no longer serves me to make room for opportunities greater than I can imagine.”
Wishing You a wonderful 2021 filled with more love, joy, and positive opportunities than you could ever imagine.
