Your 2021 New Year's Ritual
It’s time to gather your tools and get ready for the ultimate 2021 New Year Ritual. After such a challenging year, I’ve designed a practice that is unique to the energy of the present moment – that’s why the 2021 New Year Ritual focuses on starting fresh, bringing in positive energy and plugging into the highest vibrations of light. This practice is efficient and effective, and will help you to leave the past in the past so you do not have to carry those lower vibrations with you into the future. Here’s what you'll need for your practice on January 1st and how to do it:
What You'll Need:
- 1 Activation Crystal Candle to activate and manifest your intention for the new year
- 1 Natural Citrine Point or Citrine Stone to boost your manifesting power and bring light to your intention
- 1 bag of New You Crystal Bath Salts to release anything that no longer serves you so there's more room to call in what you want
Step 1: On New Year's Day (or during the first week of the new year), write your word, wish or intention for 2021 on your Activation Crystal Candle.
To elevate your intention and the power of your Activation crystal candle, write a word or phrase that represents your intention or wish on the outside of your candle. It is important to do this before lightning your candle, and it is best to write it in black ink.
Step 2: Light your Activation Candle.
Lighting a candle at the start of your crystal ritual is a powerful way to set the tone for the ritual and create a sacred space to manifest your wishes, intentions and dreams. The flame lets the invisible world know that you are about to engage in a sacred act and ignites the energy of your written word or intention.
This candle in particular is designed to provide a boost of energy, motivation and power. The Red Jasper combined with cinnamon, orange and clove essential oils helps to propel you into action so you can bring your intentions, dreams and wishes to fruition. Allow the candle to burn throughout the duration of your ritual.
Step 3: Program your Citrine crystal with your word, wish or intention for 2021.
After opening up your space and your practice with your candle, it’s time to program your crystal. For this new year ritual, you will be using a Citrine crystal (any shape works!). Citrine is the perfect stone for this 2021 new year practice because it holds the energy of the sun and sunshine. It reminds you of the light and possibilities around you, and shows you that new beginnings are here right now. Allow the stone to be a source of light for you to plug into and let it raise your vibration so you can manifest at a higher frequency.
Step 4: Soak in a bath with your New You Crystal Bath Salts.
The New You bath salts are a vibrant mix of Ocean Jasper, sea salt, calendula flowers, lime, rosemary and frankincense essential oils. Together, these energies guide you to release anything that no longer serves you so there is more space to call in what you want in the new year. As you soak. visualize your intention as if it has already happened. How does it look and feel? Once you are able to see it in your mind’s eye, the universe will help you create the physical form and make it a reality.
