“New Year’s eve is like every other night; there is no pause in the march of the universe, no breathless moment of silence among created things that the passage of another twelve months may be noted; and yet no man has quite the same thoughts this evening that come with the coming of darkness on other nights.” ~ Hamilton Wright Mabie
New Year’s Eve. For so many people it’s a night of revelry and celebration, for some it’s a night of sheer underwhelm or expectations not met, and for others it’s just another night…
Australia is one of the first countries to see in the New Year. And Byron Bay does know how to throw a party! But tonight you won’t find me there. I’ll be home at my farm, enjoying a quiet dinner with friends, before I sit down in meditation to welcome in the energies of 2013.
It will be a big meditation session – two or three hours, finishing with a simple fire ritual. I’ll be focussed on holding a positive intent for myself, for you, and for the world for the unfolding of this important year – 2013.
I’d love for you to join with me, adding your energy and presence to my own. I promise it will be an easy thing for you to do.
Each year I offer up a wish for myself, and a wish for the world. I write each of them on separate pieces of paper, and the messages I write then hold some of the shape of my meditation. At the end of my meditation, I burn each wish, letting the energy of my hopes and prayers be carried up into the atmosphere in the heat and smoke of the fire.
It’s always been a powerful practice. And now you can be a part of it too. Simply add your wish for yourself and your wish for the world as a comment at the bottom of this post.
Do it just like this: My wish for myself is…… My wish for the world is…..
If you’d like more privacy you can send me a message on facebook, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I’ll print out your wishes, and add them to my own. The only person who will see them is me. (And the Universe, of course…) I’ll hold that space for you in my meditations, and I’ll burn your messages in my New Year’s Eve fire.
I promise to hold the energy of this space (and my fire) for a full 24 hours from my own walk into 2013. That way none of you will miss out.
Together, our collective good thoughts, wishes and intentions shall help shape a 2013 that begins in love, well wishes and positive energy. What can be better than that?
Love and Blessings to you, ♥ Nicole xx
