New Year, True You: Mastering the Art of New Year Manifestation

December 8, 2023 Share

Unleash your year with fiery habits: a no-nonsense guide to manifesting a year that’s as badass as you are.

Let’s cut the typical New Year’s crap. No more fluffy resolutions or wishy-washy intentions that vanish faster than a hangover on January 2nd. There’s never been a better time to start thinking about what you want and how you want it than at the start of a New Year. Whilst you might be more familiar with the word New Year “resolutions” or “intentions”, we’re opting for a more contemporary term for a very similar concept: manifestation. It’s about crafting a year that doesn’t just happen to you, but one that you steer with the sheer force of your will and intent.

Here’s the game plan.

1. Smoke Cleansing with Sage

This ancient practice isn’t just for aesthetics. When you light that sage stick, you’re participating in a ritual of renewal. As the smoke spirals and dances through your space, imagine it lifting away last year’s burdens, clearing a path for new, vibrant energy to fill your life​.

2. Fire Ritual for Release

There’s something deeply cathartic about watching paper burn. As you set fire to your list of releases, it’s not just about destroying what’s written there. It’s a symbolic act of letting go, of acknowledging that these things no longer hold power over you. It’s a fiery farewell to the old and a warm welcome to the new possibilities​​.

3. Wallet Whimsy

This might seem like a simple act, but it’s steeped in symbolism. By placing cash in your wallet, you’re setting an intention for prosperity and abundance. It’s a small but powerful gesture that tells the universe you’re ready and open to receiving financial blessings​​.

4. Vision Board Vibes

Creating a vision board is more than just an arts and crafts project. It’s a meditation on your future, a visualization exercise that helps you focus on what truly matters. As you select each image, you’re building a collage of your aspirations, a mosaic of your potential future​​.

5. Mission Statement Manifesto

This is about defining your core, your essence. Writing your mission statement is a process of introspection, of peeling back the layers to reveal what drives you. It’s a declaration of your intentions, a guidepost for your journey through the year​​.

6. Inspirational Overload

This habit is about curating an environment that constantly whispers encouragement and inspiration, especially during your new year manifestation rituals. It’s about surrounding yourself with beauty, wisdom, and joy that reflect your innermost desires and aspirations. Each item, be it a painting, a book, or a piece of music, serves as a beacon, guiding you towards your dreams​​.

7. Journaling Journeys

When you journal, you’re engaging in a conversation with your deepest self. It’s an exploration of your psyche, a chance to confront and comfort, to question and clarify. Each entry is a step towards understanding your true desires and the paths you need to take to fulfill them​​.

8. Crystal Clarity

Crystals are more than just pretty stones; they’re tools for focus and amplification. When you choose a crystal, you’re selecting an ally in your manifestation journey. They serve as reminders of your intentions, physical embodiments of your innermost wishes and desires​​.

9. Positive Pep Talks

This is about conditioning your mind to see the glass as half full. It’s a daily practice of affirming your worth, your potential, and your power. These pep talks are your armor against the negativity and doubts that can derail your journey​​.

10. Speak Your Future

This habit brings your dreams from the abstract into the tangible world. By vocalizing your goals, you’re giving them weight and validity. It’s a powerful act of creation, using your voice to shape your reality​​.

11. Gratitude Walks

These walks are an exercise in mindfulness and appreciation and great incorporations to your new year manifestation rituals. With each step, you’re grounding yourself in the present while acknowledging the abundance that already exists in your life. It’s a practice that cultivates contentment and openness, making you more receptive to future blessings​.

12. Declutter and Cleanse

A cluttered space equals a cluttered mind. Clear out the old, and make room for the new. It’s a physical and metaphorical clean slate​.

13. Daily Devotions

Whether it’s meditation, prayer, or just a moment of silence, take time each day to connect with yourself and the divine, whatever that means to you.

14. Bless Your Space

Infuse your home with symbols of peace and growth. It’s about creating an environment that nurtures your dreams and aspirations.

15. Nutritional Nourishment

How you fuel your body sets the tone for your day. Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, dinner like a pauper – a balanced approach to eating that keeps you energized and focused.
