Begin the new year fresh with this cleansing spell.
As the Moon begins to wane and the year draws to a close,
take time today to cleanse all that no longer serves you
in the coming year. Get a pad of paper and a pen and
reminisce on all of the difficult moments of the year.
How did these experiences serve you? What gifts did they
grant you? What are you ready to release?
In your ritual space, meditate on the lessons these
experiences have taught you. Speak them. Cry if you need
to. There is no wrong way to release.
When ready, burn the paper in a fireproof dish and say:
"I release the cords that bind
What does not serve is far behind
I cleanse my body, mind, and soul
Through the fire, I am whole."
Collect the ashes and release in the wind or
bury in the earth.
