At year’s end, the burning bowl ceremony is a powerful ritual — a symbolic release — to let go of anything that no longer serves us.
The burning bowl ceremony is a fire ceremony in which we allow the wisdom of Spirit within to guide us toward what we need to release. We then write a word or a phrase summarizing what we have been guided to release on a slip of flash-paper. As we burn the paper, we symbolically set ourselves free.
We take this opportunity to release old wounds, negative or unhealthy thought patterns, unfulfilled expectations, mistakes, or situations that may be holding us back from living our best life.
The benefits of release include an increase of good in our lives. We release all unproductive thoughts and attitudes from our minds so that we can partake of the ever-renewing life and vitality God has prepared for us.
We release all concepts of lack or limitation and increase our use of divine ideas. God-within supplies us with ideas that lead us in living creative, satisfying lives.
We release all habits that hold us in unproductive, unhealthy life-styles. God’s power working in us and through us is more than enough to keep us living in positive, life-affirming ways. We open ourselves and our lives to the goodness of God.
