Rainbow New Year’s Blessings to you!
May this be your greatest year ever!
As part of my New Year preparations each year, I frequently do a ritual called The Burning Bowl Ceremony. This year, (or should I say LAST year – 2010) I invited my virtual family, friends and clients to participate in the ceremony by sending me their lists of everything they wanted to leave behind in 2010.
The invitation and the details about the Burning Bowl Ceremony was posted HERE.
When I invited everyone to participate, I had not intended on filming the ceremony, but as I began to prepare on New Year’s Eve, Spirit kept nudging at me — a bit like my Lovely Lola (my chihuahua) does when she wants attention! It became clear that “They” wanted it on video — so . . .
Here is the result!
I’m truly honored and grateful to all those who sent in their releasing lists! It was deeply fulfilling for me to conclude 2010 – living my life purpose: to be of service to YOU!
It is never too late to begin anew — so if you feel a Divine Nudge after watching the video or reading the BYE BYE 2010 post, go ahead and conduct your own version of the ceremony!!
And if you need any help — just email me!
Make this your most magnificent year ever! Only YOU have the power!
So Christmas has passed and this week people traditionally do some sort of Year In Review process – examining what went right and what went differently than they had had hoped or expected.
As my end of year special gift to you,
I’d like to help you say BYE-BYE 2010
in the Infinite Inner Power way!
Are you ready to harness the powerful Universal energies that are present NOW to release all your negative energy from 2010?
As a result of the confluence of last week’s Winter Solstice, the full Lunar Eclipse, the Full Moon AND Mercury in Retrograde, the planets are aligned and configured in an extraordinary pattern that has not happened for over 300 years! So let’s put ALL that extraordinary ENERGY to good use!
As my gift to you, on December 31st, as the sun sets here in Las Vegas, I will hold a Sacred Burning Bowl Ceremony to release YOUR 2010 and create space FOR YOU to reclaim ALL of your inner power that has leaked, lunged or was swept away despite your best intentions this year!
Here’s the plan to let go of the old and create the new:
1. MAKE A LIST
Make a list of EVERYTHING you want to let go of. This will be stuff that didn’t go well for you this year : a relationship that soured, debt that increased, the hurt feelings because someone said or didn’t say something that you interpreted in a painful way. It could also be physical ailments or conditions.
It could also be getting rid of physical stuff like cleaning out a closet – in which case just DO IT and don’t put it on the list! Even if you only have 30 minutes to clean out a kitchen drawer – DO IT, dump it and/or donate it! Honestly that’s a GREAT start! Physically cleaning out SOMETHING will shift the energy in your physical space and we are always looking to keep energy MOVING!
Now back to the list –
Here’s the top 3 things on my list of letting go: (1) beating myself up about some financial decisions I made; (2) beating myself up because I gained weight this year; (3) beating myself up because my business hasn’t grown further. (Uh do we see a pattern here? Gulp!)
Don’t limit yourself to 3 things – write them all down – 20 or 200 – the more the better because this is an INCREDIBLE opportunity to reclaim your power for 2011. The more you get rid of in the fear, guilt, pain, lack, loss department, the more room you are creating to receive love, light, joy, peace and prosperity!!
Now what to do with the list?
2. TAKE RESPONSIBILITY
You had a part to be play in everything on that list. Using my list as an example: (1) I take ownership of the financial decisions I made that I’m unhappy about. I made the best choice I could at the time. In hindsight I have regret over it because I NOW recognize that in some cases I didn’t listen to my own intuition. I created the situations which is a good thing because it also means I have the power to let it go and create differently! (2) my weight gain – well I picked up the fork too many times and for the wrong reasons. Acknowledging that gives me my power back, but continuing to beat myself up about – is no better than picking the fork up again and again.
You get the idea here right? You have to cop that you had a hand in creating the challenges. Even if it was something like an illness or an accident, there was something in your energetic vibration that made you susceptible to whatever happened. You were creating a learning experience for yourself! That’s the good news! Now we want to learn what we need to and MOVE ON!!!!
(NOTE: If you don’t see where you played a part in the situation you can do 2 things: 1) ignore it and choose to release it anyway or (2) send me an email (Steph [at] InfiniteInnerPower.com) so I can help you.)
3. GO THE DISTANCE
There is some added power to the process if you go public with your list. Going public gets it out of your head and more importantly, out of the hands of your ego. At a minimum it’s good to cop to what you want to let go of or are feeling guilty about to a trusted friend, spouse or Spiritual Advisor – that’s where I come in!
Here are some suggestions:
1. Share the list with someone you trust. The other person simply listens and says “Thank you for sharing this with me. I honor and respect your willingness to release these burdens.”
2. Post your list here in the comments section (perhaps not the 200 but the top 20 would be cool!) I will support you as stated in #1.
3. Send the list to me in a sealed envelope marked BYE BYE 2010! I promise I will not look in the envelope if it is marked properly. My mailing address is 2433 E. Tropicana Ave., #455, Las Vegas, NV 89121, U.S.A.
4. Email the list to me at Steph [at] InfiniteInnerPower.com
4. THE RELEASE
As my gift to you, on December 31st, as the sun sets here in Las Vegas, I will hold a Sacred Burning Bowl Ceremony for all of the lists I have received via email, snail mail or posted here on the blog (Nos. 2-4 above). (If you choose to share your list with someone besides me or even just keep it to yourself – that’s cool too of course! Just follow the instructions to below to create your own sacred ceremony.)
The Burning Bowl Ceremony involves moving into a meditative state and placing each of your lists (and mine!) in an appropriate (safe) container (like my BBQ). I will set them alight and as the smoke rises I will speak a prayer into the Universe to the effect that that the energy of your pains, fears and frustrations is transformed, reshaped and returned to you as Inner Strength, Inner Peace and Love for yourself and for humanity. I will remain in meditation until the all of your prayers have traveled by smoke into the heavens.
As the fire dies out I will send a final prayer of thanksgiving and claim your good in YOUR name for YOU!!
[NOTE: if you do your own ceremony you can choose your own words of course, and you can also choose to simply tear up your list, pour water on it, stomp on it, bury it, anything you want to symbolically let go of the energy. Conclude your self-styled ceremony with some words of release – "I release and let this go and know that it is done."]
5. NOW WHAT??
If making the list is easy for you GREAT!
If you are having difficulty with it – please email me:
(Steph [at] InfiniteInnerPower.com) and I’ll help you get over the hang ups.
Over the next few days I will post some other helpful tips about releasing and also about setting your intentions to create a truly magnificent and powerful 2011 for you!
Helping you release the old is my gift to you!
You may also book a session with me at my current PAY AS YOU CHOOSE pricing for the remainder of this year. My pricing will be changing January 1st so this is a great opportunity for you to get a head start on those New Year’s intentions!
Once you choose the session you want HERE, you’ll receive an email with the link to book your appointment. I’ll be giving VIP scheduling (within 24 hrs of receipt of payment whenever possible) this week to help you maximize your willingness to make powerful changes!
OK! Let’s get those lists made and prepare to burn baby burn! Only YOU can make the choice to reclaim your Inner Power NOW!
