|Kids are back in school and life has shifted. It's time to let go and move on with a "release and reaffirm" ritual. You will need two sheets of paper, a pen, matches, a burning bowl, and your busy mind.
Choose a private spot, preferably outdoors. Sit on the earth to ground, and know that you are supported and protected. Take deep breaths to center yourself, then make two lists: "What I Release" and "What I Reaffirm." Do this quickly, without too much analysis or doubt. Let your deepest self speak. For the first list, you might write:
"I release busyness, obligation,
impatience, gossip, stress, and worry."
Then on the second sheet:
"I reaffirm my center, how spiritual
connection feels. I reaffirm self-care,
and how necessary it is to everything
else that I care about."
Now carefully burn both lists in your burning bowl. Let go of your attachment to "good" and "bad." Release and be at peace.
