New Year Ritual With Your Crystals
Creating a New Year ritual with crystals is a personal and meaningful way to set your intentions for the year ahead.
Here’s a step-by-step guide…
Choose Your Crystals
I find for new beginnings and embracing a fresh start in the New Year, Moonstone is a perfect crystal.
This stone is tied to new cycles, intuition and the potential for growth and strength that goes with change.
It encourages your inner growth and strength, soothes any emotional instability and stress.
Cleanse Your Space
Before you begin, cleanse your space to get rid of any negative energy. You can use sage, palo santo, or just open the windows to let fresh air in. Make sure you do something, as it changes the energy and sets your mind and spirit right.
Cleanse Your Crystals
Crystals absorb energy, so it’s important to cleanse them before your ritual. You can use running water, sound, sunlight or moonlight, depending on the type of crystal. You can also use selenite to cleanse them.
Set Your Intention
Write down your intentions for the New Year. Be as specific as possible. Your intention could be an affirmation or a goal you wish to achieve. Or you can just feel a positive grateful energy that you want to take into the coming year.
Create a Sacred Space
Arrange your crystals in a way that feels right to you. You can put them in a circle, a grid or spread out in front of you.
I love candles. You can add whatever you like that has meaning to you.
Activate the Crystals
You can also activate your crystals by holding them in your hand and saying your intention out loud, or by visualizing your intention entering the crystal.
Sit comfortably with your crystals in front of you. Meditate on your intention. Visualize it coming true. Hold a crystal while you meditate to help you focus and absorb it’s energy.
Close the Ritual
Thank your crystals and the universe for their support. You can leave your crystal arrangement in place for a period of time or carry a crystal with you. You can also place them around the house.
I like to place one in the main rooms of the house, it acts as a reminder of the energy I want to create.
Regularly reconnect with your crystals and intentions. You can do a smaller ritual , meditate or hold the crystal and remind yourself of your goals.
Rituals are individual, so feel free to adapt these steps to suit your own beliefs and experiences. The most important part is your intention and the meaning you infuse into the ritual.
Remember, different crystals and shapes possess distinct properties, so it’s important to choose ones that resonate with your intentions for the New Year. For instance, you might opt for clear quartz for clarity, rose quartz for love, citrine for abundance.
You can also use more than one crystal.
New year has been important for many cultures in history, they had festivals and rituals promising good acts to god or mother earth. Later it became a religious act but that is not how it started.
Seeing the new year in with crystals is a great way to boost your energy. As is using them for your specific new years resolutions.
For a general new years ritual the Moonstone is the perfect stone.
Remember, the crystals have overlap, such as clarity and emotional stability, so don’t get to hung up the right crystal if you struggling to choose one. Have fun!
