New Beginning Spell casting can be an uncomplicated process. Here is one of the simplest New Beginning Spells for you to try at home.
This New Beginning Spell is cast for saying goodbye to the old and embracing the new. It is designed to be cast on New Year’s Eve but can be adapted to suit any day that you want to make fresh starts.
Prepare your tools & ingredients on your Altar
Dried Sage, dried Lavender, dried Rosemary & dried Bay Laurel in a flameproof dish
An altar candle
A small container to hold salt
A small dish or bowl to hold water
A flameproof dish, ashtray or plate
Two small pieces of paper
Two additional candles (one dark blue, one light blue)
Cypress Oil Lavender Oil
You can also add clear quartz crystals and the Tarot card of the Fool to your Altar.
Before you commence
Blend two drops each of the Cypress oil and Lavender oil with a small amount of carrier oil.
Ignite the dried herbs in the flameproof dish so they emit smoke.
Light your altar candle.
Write down something on one piece of paper that you would like to rid from your life, see the back of, something you need to let go and release. On another slip of paper write something positive that you wish to bring into your life in the coming year.
Anoint the dark and light blue candles with the oil by carefully and purposefully rubbing the oil all over the candle. Think of the negative things you want to rid while anointing the dark candle and the positive things while anointing the light candle. Gently rub the oil into the wax until the candles are covered and evenly scented.
Create your Sacred Space & Circle
Concentrate and visualise a sphere of gold light forming around you and expanding outwards in every direction to form your Sacred space
Call upon the Elements
Concentrate on all five Elements of Air, Earth, Water, Fire and Spirit and how they are within you, represented on your Altar and in the world around you.
Raising your energy is bringing forth all your energy inside you and preparing to release it at the end of the Spell to go out into the world and create the changes you desire. Imagine the energy in the form of a white light flowing throughout your body forming a ball of light deep in your chest. Tense every muscle in your body until you feel ‘fully charged’. Relax and take a few deep breaths before proceeding.
Recite your Spell
Say 3 times aloud:
‘As the old year fades and passes away,
Let this, too, fade and pass away’
Focus your thoughts on what you wish to release or eliminate. From the flame of the dark candle set alight the piece of paper containing the words describing the thing that you want to be rid of, and allow it to burn away in the flameproof dish. Observe carefully as the flame consumes the paper and think about how it is being burned out of your life and will pass away.
Say 3 times aloud:‘As the New Year brings joy and light with every day,
Focus on what you wish to bring into your life in the coming year. From the flame of the light coloured candle set alight the piece of paper containing the words that describe that which you want to attract, and allow it to burn away in the flameproof dish. Observe carefully as the flame consumes the paper and think about how your wish is being released to the Universe.
Say 3 times aloud:‘Be gone the old. Release all negativity
After your Spell is complete you will need to release and send out the energy that you raised. This energy is released into the world to create the change you desire. To do this you will need to stand before your altar and imagine the ball of light in your chest once more. Again tense all your muscles and begin to ‘push’ the energy upward. Then stand comfortably with your feet apart and thrust your arms upwards and outwards to form a star shape with your body. Exhale and imagine sending this energy out into the air. When this is complete, stand with feet together and touch each shoulder with opposite arms to form a cross against your chest.
Relax, take some deep breaths and imagine and visualise the golden sphere around you becoming smaller until it disappears.
