Letting Go to Welcome Something New

Before starting the next series on welcoming a new baby into your home I wanted to take a moment to touch on the aspect of letting go of things that are no longer serving you. I would classify 2015 as a year of letting go for me. I made the decision to let go of a job that I had been at for 10 years. Although they had been great to me the job itself was no longer serving in the sense that I was not passionate about my work anymore. I was also able to release some of the emotional baggage centered around the relationship Vivienne’s father and I have/had. There is still a lot of letting go to do but I feel really great about the place that I am in.

Is there anything you need to release? How do you go about letting go? One of the things I have done in the past is to have a letting go ceremony timed with the Full Moon. As women our natural body cycle is synced with the phases of the moon. Releasing with the Full Moon opens up our body’s energy for the new cycle with the New Moon.

My favorite way of releasing is to burn it. How do you do this?

Write out whatever is bothering you. EX: fears, negative thoughts, emotional situations. Set fire to your paper and as you watch the flame burn release everything that is associated with what you wrote.

I personal goal of mine for 2016 is to do this when every full moon of the year. If this is something you would like to do I have listed the dates of each full moon for 2016.
