A Ritual for the Lunar New Year

Happy Lunar New Year + Chinese New Year!

In Chinese tradition, and those traditions that still celebrate the lunar calendar year, today, or the second new moon of the year, is the start of the Lunar New Year, as compared to Western calendars which begin on January 1st. But what does this mean for you?

Quite simply, this is a time for letting go of old debts and beginning anew. In the Chinese tradition, all debts should be paid before the New Year to have a clean slate. Now while this is obviously ideal to have no debt financially, which is perhaps the first thing you think of, I invite you to see this as an opportunity to emotionally let go of your debts. 

Let go of what's no longer serving your vision. Let go of people in your life who no longer align with where you're headed. Whatever is physically or emotionally weighing you down, let it go. Let the debt monkey (ironic since this is the year of the monkey) be free. You are not indebted to having to hold on to your past hurts, the plans that didn't work, the relationship that failed. You have the right, and today the moon is backing you, to release old debts and move the hell on. 

New Moons are always a time for renewal, a fresh start, but today, I welcome you to try this Lunar New Year cleansing + manifestation ritual:

-As you wash your hands under water, or maybe even as you shower, say to yourself 3x, "I release and set free the debts of this past year, and I acknowledge that I am worthy of a fresh start."

-After that, think about what you would like to see come to life this lunar year. Write down your intentions and keep your soul in mind. What would your soul like to see come to life this year? 

Happy Lunar New Year, friends! I can't wait to share the manifestation of my intentions for 2016 with you all very soon! Here's a peak at what's coming:
