Release Ritual: Evoke Your Fire & Transform

We as individuals and the world around us are constantly moving & changing. This can be really scary, because it means that often times we need to say “goodbye” to people that we thought would stay in our lives forever. But it’s not just people we hold on to: it can be vices like indulging in chocolate or wine, it can be pain of past traumas that comes back to haunt us once a month or a crippling fear that is preventing us from fully stepping into our power.

Whatever comes up for you, the following Fire Release Ritual will help you to set a strong intention and fire up your determination for moving on with your life. A ritual doesn’t just free you energetically from this person/emotion/outdated belief/vice that you are longing to drop but it also sends a strong message out into the Universe to support you in your life’s journey forward.

The most potent time for this ritual is every month around the full moon (± 3 days) but it really can be performed whenever it feels right for you.

What you will need:

  • Your journal/piece of paper & a pen

  • Candle

  • Fire-proof vessel

  • Symbol for the person/belief/vice/emotion you want to let go of: this could be a picture, a souvenir, our you could even create a little drawing with symbols that carry meaning for you

  • Seed (optional)

Before you start take time to become crystal clear about your feelings:

Often times we are so stuck up in our heads, the thoughts keep on spinning and we lose

sight of what our heart is telling us. To bring some structure back into your mind and

maybe even uncover feelings that have been hiding behind all the chatter, I encourage you to journal about the relationship/belief/emotion that you are longing to let go of. Allow a stream of consciousness, don’t worry about spelling or punctuation but let your ideas flow freely onto paper until there is nothing left to say. If it feels more natural to you, you could also create a voice note and speak your ideas out loud.
