Ring In The New Year
Happy New Year!
Ring In the New Year and Welcome 2019
Did you ever wonder why we ring bells on New Year’s?
The tradition started centuries ago and marked the Gregorian calendar date of December 31 as the beginning of a new year.
In ancient times and to this day, bell ringing holds deep spiritual and religious significance for many people and symbolizes both life and death.
The nature of New Year’s is somewhat duplicitous as a year ends and a new one begins a moment later. The duality of the yin yang is expressed in time as in nature.
Bell ringing was believed to ward off low energy and unsavory spirits and those within the circle of hearing them were protected and blessed.
Bells scared away the bad and heralded in the good, laying a solid foundation for the first day of the new year.
The promise of a new crop, good weather and a full harvest were found in sound.
It is believed by many cultures that what you do, say and think on New Year’s will imprint on your soul and influence your activities for the rest of the year. So be mindful in thought, word and deed.
Ringing in New Year’s also exists on an energetic level and is our time to let go of the old and allow in the new. It’s an important symbolic time to release, relax and redirect.
Holding on to an abusive outlived relationship? Afraid to look for a new job? Want to move to a new place? Now’s the time to let go of tired excuses and welcome growth and expansion.
There is a powerful peace that comes with wiping the slate clean and being given another chance to start afresh.
Resistant as we humans often are to change, we also welcome in the New Year with joyful celebrations and look forward to new beginnings.
As the bells ring the old out and the new in , it is customary to make a New Year’s wish or resolution, sometimes under mistletoe or another evergreen.
Making a wish is akin to creative visualization, so when you wish for your dream, back it up with your intent and energize it with action thoughts.
Wishing is desire residing in the air element. Manifestation requires the fire of action to energize it. Even a resolution needs energy.
Use the duality of the yin yang to wish deeply and actively. You are in control of your life and New Year’s is the perfect time to recreate your path.
Be bold and allow change /chance to assist you in reaching your goals and achieving your dreams.
As a psychic or medium, New Year’s holds deep, spiritual significance for us as we move forward in our healing work, expanding, learning and serving the good of others and earth.
It’s a special time of revisiting your ancestral and spiritual beliefs and holding sacred space within yourself and others.
Upon review of your life and work you may well discover desires to experience and expand your consciousness.
Now is the time to make your “resolution” and set the stage for yourself to shine.
Many readers seek the guidance and counsel of elders or others during this time.
It’s good to check in and see where we are and where we might be going. An astrological overview can be very informative at this time as can information about major celestial shifts that may be upcoming.
Learning as much as you can about the year to come can enhance, empower and enlighten you to turn your own wheel of the year in an ever forward direction.
New Year’s is rebirth and renewal.
So, make your wish, chime your bells, and ring in the new year!
What is your resolution this year?
