Happy new year/ new decade/ new everything, my friends!
We just returned from an amazing Christmas and NYE in California and I'm here to remind you that if you haven't written out your wishes for 2020 yet (or if you have and just want to make sure that you're all set up for manifestation success) - you are not too late :)
I like to call these grand desires for the new year 'wishes' instead of 'goals', because that's one word that doesn't seem to cause anxiety or pressure, it feels light, inspiring and positive. Plus, I don't know about you, but when I make 'wishes', I tend to smile widely, dream freely and breathe beautifully, which is not always the experience with 'goal' setting.
I've already written several times about the magic of sending out wishes to the universe, but today I have a new fun one to share. And, I'll recap your top favourites for the highest success rate also...
1. GRATITUDE LIST.
Take some time in late December or beginning of January (now is the perfect time:)) to write out all the big, small and tiny accomplishments of the previous 12 months. There is nothing as thrilling, motivating, inspirational, fun, eye opening, gratifying, healing and self-appreciating all at the same time. The state of gratitude you create within your being will send signals to the universe that you're ready for more!

2. WISH LIST ON FIRE.
Write down your greatest wishes and desires for the new year. Read them over, breathe them in and imagine as though everything on that paper is already yours right now. Fold it up and set fire to it. You've just released all attachment to the outcome and gave your creator the nod that you're trusting Him to guide you there.

3. VISION BOARD.
Cut out images and words in magazines and print-outs, which inspire you and represent all the things, feelings, desires, goals and wishes which you truly dream of. Place the cut-outs on a large clipboard and arrange them until the complete picture feels right, then glue them in place. Now that your vision board is ready, place or hang it where it can’t be ignored. Take it all in, see it as a whole, see it as individual parts and then breathe as though they have already happened. Give it a little attention daily and celebrate with deep gratitude each desire that is coming true for you. Remember that you’ve done your job, so become an observer, let go of any attachments to it and let the universe do its job.

4. BALLOON RELEASE.
This is a brand new edition to my wishing ritual since my mum posted the steps to this practice recently, so I'm simply translating it for you from Russian...
During the New Year transition period, it is customary to make new plans and dream of a beautiful future. And everyone really wants these dreams to come true. I can share with you one practice that will help.
Make a wish and release your balloon..
a. Close your eyes. Take a deep breath, exhale. Send a smile to the whole world. Make a wish. Now imagine the wish as it if is already realised - in your mind's eye picture your exact surrounds in as much detail as possible, include the scent, what you might hear, how you might be breathing and how you might be feeling.
b. Open your eyes and without hesitation, select a balloon in the picture. Remember that the first choice comes from your Higher Self, and the second and subsequent ones are a derivative of logical thinking. So, looking at your magic balloon, mentally infuse it with your desire and its complete picture you've just created. When you are ready to let the balloon go, say to yourself: “I am sending my important balloon to the Creator for consideration and to fulfil my wish!”
c. Blow this balloon from the picture, clap your hands joyfully and do not look at it anymore so as not to delay its flight.
You can make three wishes daily, especially around the New Year and your birthday. Just don’t tell anyone about them. Let your desires gain strength and reach the divine miracle makers.
Know that if you infuse your balloon with a desire to get revenge on someone or to do a nasty deed, then that balloon will burst before it reaches the sky and the contents of it will land all over YOU. I did not make this up, they are basic cosmic laws for us Earthlings. Therefore, my advice to this scenario would look something like this: if you have enemies, then mentally create and send a wish into the balloon in which your ill-wishers will live long and happy lives.
Wish, wish, wish away and everything will return to you :)
P.S. I'd love to know if you've tried any of the above or whether you have a wishing tip of your own. Please share with all of us in the comments below...
