Year End Ritual

Updated: Dec 17, 2023


Ritual Practice

Year-End Completion & Intentions


This is a ritual I've been doing for the last 8 years. I share it as an invitation to work with these questions any way that feels good to you.

It's sweet to do it together with others as well.

Taking a life and soul inventory is a way we can distill, extract and integrate our learnings from the previous year.

Journaling & tracking brings so much clarity & it accellerates us stepping into what we really want and supports our becoming and manifestational power <3



What were your most magical / meaningful moments?

What area was I most challenged this past year?

What are the biggest lessons and truths?

Disappointments & Regrets?

What did you put most time into?

What parts of yourself do you adore and want more of?

What didn't you do that you said you would do?

What are all the goals you accomplished?

What are you letting go of?

Any false stories, patterns, belief systems, relationships, habits, addictions or ways of being in life that are creating soul constipation?


In what areas do I need to have more compassion and acceptance?



What was the title of my year?

CREATE

Tune into what you desire to fulfill in this next upcoming year


This next part of the you can use what you were inspired by from the previous questions to guide this next year.

This process is not like traditional goal setting, it is not a list, this is an invitation to go beyond your rational mind and into the depths of your soul's desires.

An invitation to tune into what is there waiting to be created by you


Now, crossing through the gate of change.....

What do I really want? What’s the outcome I’m after? What are the specific measurable results? The more precise, the stronger your prayer is. Be specific. Express what it feels like to be living and experiencing your desires.

areas of life mastery:

How about health is there a specific measurable result??

meaning & emotions,

relationships,

time, work/career/mission,

finances, and

spirituality.

creativity

Charity,

Adventure & fun, experiences,


What choices and commitments aka Action Plans could I make to support myself to experience my fulfilled life?

What do I imagine would deepen my experience of those qualities? Habits i'll acquire/reinforce

a.) What kind of trigger words really motivate me to reach my goal?

What words stoke my heart/belly's fire with excitement?

What words really make me want to do something?

What's your role?; Identity Instigator for a marketing branding maven. You're not an IT person, you're a "Tech Detective" uncovering the secrets of the digital realm. Or financial planner is a "Fortune Teller," predicting money moves, child educators are "Artists," sculpting the brilliant minds of tomorrow. Mommas are "Queens of the dom." Nurturing all the abundant beauty of life like Lakshmi. I think of myself as Iris, Goddess of the Rainbow, bridging heaven and earth.


Why am I doing it? What are my reasons? Why is this not just a “should,” but a must for me? The emotional quality of purpose makes what you will do not only sustainable, but powerful. What will it bring emotionally?

What is the essence of the qualities and virtues I want to embody?


Places I would like to travel:

or anything more long term that may feel exciting to write down here for your vision.

May we honor ourselves, all beings, our ancestors, all the directions and the wisdom they hold.

May we nurture and mentor our inner children, play more, laugh more, and create more art and COlaborate. May we be forgiven for our shortcomings, may our blind spots be revealed in good ways, and may we transform and release our burdens well.


With Love,

Antonia
