Happy New Year, everyone! Here’s a ritual to renew your body, mind and spirit. It’s simple and
fun. Your child will understand the deeper meaning of this ritual because it is tangible and children love to use their imaginations! This New Year Ritual is best done during the first days and month of each new year.
Step 1. Go around your home open all the windows. (Just briefly if you live in a cold climate.)
Step 2. Open the front door.
Step 3. Stand with your child at the threshold and say: “As I open all the windows and doors to my home, I open the windows and doors to my soul—in comes the new fresh air, in comes the new sunlight and in comes the new energy of love!”
Step 4. Breathe! Take three deep energizing breaths.
Step 5. As you close the front door and windows throughout your home, notice the feeling of freshness in the air. Notice how you are feeling. Did this make you smile? Good!
