The New Year is a time when people naturally think of fresh starts and new beginnings, but this is never as easy as it sounds – how can you make a fresh start when you have old wounds which need healing, painful memories that haunt you, and bad habits you can’t break?
Here are a few simple spells and rituals which may help to release you from negative thoughts, emotions and habits which may be holding you back. Remember, that these spells should be used in conjunction with putting in a real effort to make changes for the better!
Letting Go Candle Spell
Do this at a time when you feel relaxed and won’t be disturbed.
You will need:
- A white candle for strength and purity
- A pink candle for love and healing
- A blue candle for peace
As you light each candle in turn, with intent, state the following:
“I leave the past where it belongs, and welcome a fresh start
I release all that holds me back, and does not serve my heart
I replace my overthinking, with peace and harmony
Such is my powerful energy, that as I will it, so mote it be”
Meditate as the candles burn, imagine yourself walking boldly and confidently away from all that plagues you – feel the joy of moving forward to happier times with a joyous heart. Know that you will no longer dwell on painful memories, but simply use the learned experience to move forward with strength. 🙌
New Beginnings Charm Bag
You will need:
- Lavender for peace
- Pine for healing
- Birch Bark for new beginnings
- Cinnamon for success
- Moonstone for inner strength and peace
- And bag or pouch that can be firmly tied closed.
If you don’t have all of the items listed, work with what you have – your intent and belief are key!
Relax, and work on your charm bag with intent – each and every item placed in your pouch should be held a while and charged with your powerful intent before being placed in the pouch. Know that this charm will help you to start afresh, to leave behind any failures, guilt, bad memories, and negative emotions; know that you will move into the future feeling lighter and more joyous! Keep the pouch with you until you feel it is no longer needed. At this point the herbs can be given back to nature with thanks, and the crystal can be cleansed for re-use. 💖✨
Happy New Year Powder
You will need:
- Strawberry leaves
- Dried Orange Peel (finely grated)
- Saffron Powder
Grind the three spell ingredients together with powerful intent. Feel joy as you grind them. Then, as you scatter the powder around the perimeter of your home, think or say the following:
“A new year dawns, to serve me well
Bringing a joy that only time will tell
I step into this year with a lightened heart
Because I know, it’s a great, new start
This powder I ground, attracts joy by the load
As I scatter it around my abode”
Full Moon Spell for Healing and Starting Afresh
For this you need nothing other than a full moon, your intent, and your belief!
Be comfortable under the full moon, greet the moon by chanting the following:
“Lunar energy surrounding me, I thank you from my soul
Nourished by your sacred power, like you, I become whole.
Your cleansing rays healing me, they help to set me free
Moonlight shining strong and bright, removing negativity.”
Take in the moonlight as you meditate on the feeling of becoming whole, cleansed, and free! 💫
Banishing Bad Habits Bath Ritual
Make a banishing bath oil by blending the following ingredients:
- 1 tablespoon Olive Oil to act as a base, associated with peace
- 5 drops Rosemary Oil to banish negativity*
- 5 drops Lavender Oil to purify and bring peace
- 5 drops Frankincense Oil to purify the body and mind
Run yourself a bath – you can enhance your ritual experience by dimming the lights, lighting candles, playing soft music, etc. Really take the time to make this all about you, and your wellbeing.
Add the banishing oil to your bathwater, and bathe, feel yourself being filled with a new resolve to leave all negativity and bad habits behind. Imagine yourself free of those negative thoughts, emotions, and habits, and give thanks. 🙏🏼
*it is recommended that pregnant women avoid bathing in rosemary oil, so this can be substituted with sandalwood or another suitable alternative.
