A 6-Step Ritual to Help You Let Go

Written by Kim Bleeze, Fierce Truths Magazine.

A 6-step ritual to help you let go of the old, and prepare yourself to welcome in the new.

What’s that saying…? “All good things come to an end?” Although true to some extent, it can also be challenging when change happens, or something ends. When a relationship, job, experience, behaviour, way of being, or current phase of life ends, letting go can be a little tough for some. And that’s especially true if those things have held meaning in our life at some point.

It’s hard, even when we know that the change may be for the best.

Learning to let go of what doesn’t belong in our life; the pain, the hurt, the loss, the old thinking and who we used to identify ourselves with, is an important aspect of moving forward towards a more rewarding life. Whether that is feeling a certain way, a relationship that needs to change, that job you just lost or the career path you wish to change.

Energetically, letting go of it is really important. It creates room for the universe to deliver an upgraded version of what we need and what we wish to manifest in our in life right now.

Then when we create ritual around that, the letting go process becomes more powerful. This allows us to energetically close the door on what is no longer good for us. It also contributes to the energy of new beginnings that are more worthy of our focus, time, and attention.

So, I’ve created this ‘Letting Go Ritual’ to make it easier for you to find release in all things that need to go. Like all the things that need to change or be removed from your life completely.

Exciting, right? Well, I hope so, because by saying yes to this ritual, you are also saying yes to opening the door and making room for all the new and amazing stuff that is coming your way.

Especially the bits that are related to living your soul purpose, because there has never been a better time to reconnect to what your soul already knows.

So, what will you need?

A candle and something to light it with.

An empty flame-proof bowl or container.

Writing paper and pen.

A sacred and energetically clean space

The Ritual

Step 1... Set Up Your Space

Go ahead and set your space up in a manner that resonates with you. You will need your items to be placed to the front of you and in reach. So give thought to this as you lay out your space or room. I personally like to place cushions on the floor and sit on these with an altar in front of me! Just as long as it feels physically and energetically comfortable to you.

Step 2... Intent and Presence

Take a moment to just breathe and settle into your space. Once you feel settled, go ahead and welcome in the intent of what you want this ritual to achieve. Continue breathing in that energy and intent and allow that to ground you in staying present in the moment.

Step 3... Lighting the Candle

When you are in ritual, there is purposeful action in every moment and in every action. So, now that it is time to begin, light the candle with presence and intent for what you are creating. Continue focusing on your breath. Breathe deeply in and out as you stare into the flame. Allow yourself to reach a state of inner peace and tranquility as you surrender to the sacredness of ritual.

Step 4... Writing

Take your writing paper and pen and write down everything you wish to release. That’s right get it all out! Keep going until you have thoroughly gotten it all off your chest. You are the only one who will see this so be honest, real, and raw. Allow yourself to express and release any emotion that comes up too.

Step 5... Burn it all away

I love this step. Burning in ritual is an ancient remedy of release! Begin by saying these words: “I let go and release all that no longer belongs in my life”, or whatever words resonate for you personally. Take your written-on-paper and light a corner of it making sure it is well lit. Then place it in the fire-proof bowl and watch it burn as you continue to pray your commitment of letting go to the universe.

Step 6... Final Release

You have just released an immense amount of stagnate energy from your life. So it is important to shake this off. You can do this by rubbing your hands together and then separately shaking them. Or, as I love to do, get up and move your whole body and/or dance and shake it off that way.

Enjoy the process of release and letting go of the old!
