13 Holy Nights
The 13 Holy Nights is an old ritual, a simple practice that is intended to bring more PURPOSE and CONNECTION in your life. I have been doing this ritual for the past couple of years now and I must admit that it is by far my favorite ritual I do.
Starting at sunset of December 24th till sunset January 6th we have the profound opportunity to tap into the energies of the coming year and plant seeds for an abundantly healthy and successful New Year (working on our manifestation skills, here!)
In my home country, Malta, we have L-iRwiegel, the Calends which are the 12 days prior to Christmas. Starting on Dec. 13th until Dec. 24th. every day represents a month and predicts the weather for the next year. It is not the same however I wanted to point that the 12 days prior to Christmas and the 12 days after Christmas are so full of magic that it is impossible not to fall for the beauty of these rituals.
What you need:A candle
Oracle / Angel Cards (optional)
Every evening, close to sunset, or maybe later, light up a candle and focus on the flame for a few minutes. Then, close your eyes and focus on your breathing whilst you connect with your inner core. If you have a card, pull a card now or open up a page of a book you use for meditation and pick a quote. That card or quote will symbolise a month in the coming year. In your journal write down what the card or quote means to you.
For the following days, at sunset (or evening) repeat the above and also reflect on what showed up during that day, what inspired you or struck you as odd. Write down everything, conversations, feelings, events ... make sure to label everything carefully to be able to find it later in the year!
In the morning make time to record your dreams, whatever you can remember, people, themes, feelings, anything really.
