Reprinted and updated from my A New Years Blessing of Release and Letting Go, 2008 post
You can use this blessing at anytime really, but it is particularly good to use at the end of something. A job, a committment, a relationship, a project, whatever. This will help you to let go of what has ended and to bring back to you your energy that you have used or given away during the process. Simply substitute “old year”/”2009” with whatever you are releasing. This is best done from a meditative state. Look with your inner sight at the object of release, and say…
Hello, old year of 2009. I see that it is time for you and I to part. In my minds eye, I look back and I see all that you and I accomplished together, and I am grateful for those things. I see all that you and I did not accomplish, and I am grateful for the lessons of those things.
It is with this gratitude and thanks that I now release and let go of all that we were, knowing that I have grown from the experience; knowing that I am different than I was and that I no longer have use for what was, but instead look at the present state of what is and look forward to what will be.
I release and let go of all of the negative emotions that I had in 2009, no matter what might have caused them to surface. I recall back to me all of my energy that I spent and sent out in negative thought and feeling. I recall back to me also all of the positive energy that I gave out, knowing that only I can use my own energy.
I fully release and let go of the people, events and things from the past year that no longer serve my highest purpose. I release them joyously, and with a glad and grateful heart for the lessons learned. I wish them well, and I wish them gone from my life so that I may invite in new people, events and things that are better aligned to who I am now.
I now say Goodbye to you, 2009. You were what you were, and I am thankful for the many things I experienced and learned during your time.
So mote it be!
I wish you all the very Brightest Blessings for the New Year!
Deep Peace, Prosperity, Health & Happiness!!
