    Resolution Traditions

    It is traditional for many of us to set New Year’s Resolutions at the

    beginning of the New Year. When exactly that New Year is, does vary in

    accordance with one’s culture and beliefs. For example, those who are

    Jewish, celebrate Rosh Hashanah which occurs sometime in September or

    October. For some Pagans, they celebrate the New Year during Samhain,

    which is October 31-November 1st, sunset to sunset. Some Pagans in the

    southern hemisphere may celebrate Samhain on May 1st. Other Pagans

    may celebrate the New Year during Beltane which is observed on May 1st in

    the northern hemisphere, or October 31st in the southern hemisphere. We

    also have many people that celebrate the Chinese New Year which is based

    on the lunar calendar and varies

    from year to year, whereas the

    Russian Orthodox New Year is

    celebrated on January 14th, in

    accordance with the Gregorian

    calendar. There are too many

    cultures and religions to name

    them all, but the point is, when

    and IF you choose to celebrate a

    New Year, is your personal choice.

    I think it’s also important to note

    that resolutions are at the core,

    affirmations or intentions. We can set those any time we want. The start of

    the new moon is a great time, for it is a time for new beginnings. We can

    also set resolutions or affirmations, each morning, or when we go to bed, or

    at any moment.

    Crystals for Setting Resolutions

    When you feel the time is right, light a candle or some incense, diffuse

    essential oils, play calming music and so on. You may even wish to meditate,

    take a soothing bath, go for a walk, sit outside or whatever helps you to

    relax. The key is that you are relaxed, centered, present, and grounded.

    Some wonderful crystals that may assist you, include Celestite, Sodalite,

    Blue Kyanite, Angelite, or Lapis Lazuli. These are great for communicating

    with your higher self. You may also want to use crystals such as Amethyst,

    Auralite 23, Lepidolite, Sugilite, or Fluorite, to assist with vision and focus. I

    also recommend tapping into your heart space to see what your heart truly

    desires. Rose Quartz, Rhodonite, Unakite, Pink Tourmaline, Rhodocrosite,

    and Emerald, are examples of lovely heart stones. Pink Danburite is also

    fantastic for the heart-mind connection.

    My all-time favorite manifestation

    combination is Pyrite or Citrine,

    Clear Quartz and Lodestone. You can

    use this combo for general

    manifestation or add other crystals

    to specify your intention. For

    example, if you are seeking a love

    relationship, add a love stone such

    as Rose Quartz, Pink Dolomite, etc.

    Lastly, it’s important to stay grounded, especially when making decisions

    regarding your life in this 3d reality. Lodestone, Smokey Quartz, Black

    Tourmaline, Bloodstone, Black Amber, Jet, beach or river rocks, are some of

    my favorites, but there are many others. Always choose crystals based on

    your own inner guidance, for those are typically the right ones for YOU.

    Setting Resolutions

    When determining your resolutions, you may wish to consider the SWOT

    analysis and the SMART approach to goal setting.

    S = Strength (What are your strong points, skills, best aspect of self? What

    are you really good at?)

    W= Weakness (Areas that need improvement, such as lack of follow-

    through, unable to focus, unorganized, etc.)

    O= Opportunities (Consider everything and everyone as an opportunity.

    Look for synchronicities, the bread crumbs that lead you on your path.)

    T= Threats (Barriers. What gets in your way? Not enough time, money,

    transportation?)

    Set SMART Goals

    S = Specific (Goals should be simple and clear. Include what, why, and how.)

    m= Measurable (How will you measure your success? Consider numbers,

    behaviors, actions, dates, times, etc.)

    A= Achievable (Be realistic but at the same time, challenge yourself.)

    R= Result-Oriented (Look for results not just certain activities.)

    T= Timely (In many cases time is relevant, but not always - especially in

    terms of personal goals.)

    It’s important to note that these

    approaches are typically a “business

    model way” of setting goals. We are

    not a business. We are spiritual,

    creator-beings that change moment by

    moment. Be gentle with yourself and

    set reasonable time frames and

    reasonable goals or resolutions. It’s

    better to set small goals and

    resolutions so we can achieve them,

    than it is large ones that we do not.

    Celebrate every success, no matter

    how great or small and don’t criticize

    yourself if you do not achieve a goal or stick to a resolution. Rather, take

    another look at your goal and make changes as you see fit.

    On the following pages, I have created spaces for you to write your

    resolutions and monitor progress. Only choose what feels right to you. You

    don’t have to have resolutions for each area I have created. Set as many or

    as little as you would like. Sample categories include: self-love,

    relationships, health/fitness, spiritual, career/work, leisure/fun, and other.

    What is your intuition saying?

    The most important thing about setting

    resolutions is to be true to yourself!
