Have the Gods Smile on Your New Year’s Resolution

“Okay, I told you what I’m working on for 2015,” I said. “What’s your plan?”

“Losing weight,” Sharon replied.

“Isn’t that what you said last year?” I asked.

“Yeah, but I am really going to do it this year,” she insisted.

Do you find yourself making some sort of New Year’s resolution? Or have you given up?

Consider making a spiritual resolution.

One example would be to dedicate yourself anew to the Gods (see my Simple Wiccan Dedication Ritual).

My own resolution is to meditate more often.

I’m concerned that many of us make resolutions that are too big. Instead, you can identify something small to do. For example, your plan could be: “I will have a piece of fruit instead of a muffin for breakfast each morning.”

The idea is for you to pick something manageable. Avoid some extreme diet.

Use the same pattern for a spiritual resolution.

Some people insist that they will start meditating an hour a day when they haven’t done meditation on any regular schedule.

Instead, pick a manageable goal like: “I’ll meditate for 5 minutes each morning.”

Make it easy to succeed. Start with a baby step. You can always increase the time you meditate once you’ve instilled the new, positive habit.

Less is more. Once you accomplish the daily 5-minute meditations, you experience good feelings of success! You can build on that.

Using the above baby-step approach you will be ahead of all those people who set extreme resolutions and fail.

Instead, you will succeed and improve your Wiccan practice step-by-step. The God and Goddess want you to succeed.

What well-considered New Year’s resolution will you make?

  1. Every year I make this BIG FUN SCARY LIST of things I want to accomplish during the year. I post my list online, but I do break it down in smaller step in my agenda. In june I write a mid year review and talk about what worked and what didn’t. What needs to be changed and which goals was accomplished!
