A Beautiful Process For Letting Go

As we are starting to get close to the end of the year, I thought I’d share a beautiful process that I’ve done in the past and that I’ll be doing this year again. This process can be done at any time of the year but it’s especially perfect as we end one cycle and begin another.

I love having a sense of completion and intention when ending something and beginning another as I believe there is great strength, power and beauty in that.

The process of reflecting back before moving forward allows for a deeper understanding of oneself and a deeper integration of what has passed to take place so that moving forward feels clearer and lighter and more open to new possibilities.

This process is one of letting go of heavy energy and beliefs that do not serve you and inviting in new expansive light energy and beliefs.

This process is ideally done on New Years Eve but don’t stress if it’s a bit before or after.


  1. Create the space.
    You can either do this on your own, with a partner or with your family, it’s up to you. However you do it though, create the space for a sacred and intentional few moments of your time. Light some candles, burn sage and smudge yourself/each other if you have sage, light incense…whatever works for you but do what you can to create a sacred and calm space and mood. 

  2. Write it down.
    On a piece of paper, write down all the things you’re letting go of from 2021. All the things that didn’t serve you, all the things that created negative and heavy energy for you, the beliefs, the conditioning. Reflecting back on your 2021, what are the things that held you back that you are ready to let go. Write them all down by saying: I am letting go of….

  3. Let it burn.
    The ideal now is to read what you have written out loud (whether it’s just you or you are with others) and then to find a beautiful fire and burn it. If you don’t have a fire already burning, you can just light it and burn it.

  4. Say YES!
    Once you’ve done that, you’re going to take a new piece of paper and write down all the things you are inviting in and saying YES to in 2022 (making sure to write in the present tense.) Invite in all your dreams, all your new beliefs, all your manifestations, all your desires…invite them all in and say a loud and beautiful YES to all that you desire in 2022. End this with: And so it is!

  5. Let it be!
    Read this out loud with excitement and conviction! Keep this piece of paper on your office wall, in your journal, wherever feels good for you as a reminder of what it is you are inviting in for 2022.


I wish you a beautiful process and may all your desires and dreams manifest as you want them to in 2022!!
