Just a quick post today to wish you a very Happy 2019!
I started my new year this year by co-teaching a Mala — a series of 108 Sun Salutations at my yoga studio.
Before we began, we each took a slip of paper and wrote what we would like to release from 2018 : stress, anxiety, fear — whatever we needed to let go of. Then we wrote what we’d like to attract for 2019: love, peace, hope — again, it could be specific or general.
After we finished, tired and sweaty, we went outside in silence and burned our slips of paper. It was quite a profound experience, and one I’d love to share with you.
So even without the drama of a fire pit or the Sun Salutations, I encourage you to write down those things you’d like to release and those you’d like to attract, and have your own “ceremony” — just ripping the paper to shreds works! Then sit back and toast yourself, as we go forward to make 2019 our best year yet.
Happy New Year!
