Psychomagic is a technique created by the Chilean writer Alejandro Jodorowsky to treat emotional and psychological problems through the performance of symbolic acts and ceremonies.
Psychomagic Ritual to Welcome the New Year 2023
Jodorowsky, who is also a film and theater director, has described psychomagic as a form of therapy that combines elements of cognitive-behavioral therapy, analytical psychology and occupational therapy with elements of esoteric tradition and religion.
Psychomagic therapy is based on the idea that our psychological and emotional problems often have symbolic roots and that, by performing symbolic acts and ceremonies, we can release those problems and improve our emotional well-being.
Symbolic acts may include actions such as writing a letter to an inanimate object, wearing a symbolic object or performing a specific ceremony.
Death of 2022 and birth of 2023
Concentrate well and visualize holding in your hands a white helium-filled balloon as the soul of your planet, the Earth, the Sacred Mother, as the twelve chimes signal the passing of 2022 and the birth of 2023.
Give that balloon your most sincere love, tenderness, affection, your gratitude, your admiration and your infinite respect. Feel its present suffering and sickness. Begin by cleaning the dross from its white surface by sliding your hands over it.
Remove all pollution from its soil, water and sky.
Eliminate the accumulation of weapons, legal assassins posing as soldiers, dishonest politicians, selfish dictators, thieving bankers, outdated sects of religion, prostituted artists, vampiric multinationals and pharmaceutical lobbies sowing useless vaccines…
Wipe with your compassionate palms hunger, racism, borders and “patriotic” wars for oil, gas and minerals.
Start watering the Earth with fertility, peace and sublime love once you feel you have thoroughly cleansed its soul-sphere and continue to do so until you feel you have an Eden on your hands.
Join this glowing sphere in a dance.
May you feel it beating like a heart and then open a window and send it outward to rise and join all the other white spheres that conscious people like you have thrown into the “reality” you are dreaming of.
Importance of rituals to say goodbye to the year
Rituals to say goodbye to the year can be important because they allow us to reflect on what we have done during the year and to set goals and resolutions for the coming year.
In addition, rituals can provide a sense of community and connection with others and can help us feel more at peace and in harmony with ourselves and the world around us.
Rituals can also be a way to give thanks for the blessings of the past year and to release any negativity or emotional baggage we may have accumulated.
Some examples of rituals for saying goodbye to the year may include creating a list of intentions for the coming year, cleansing or purification ceremonies, or participating in traditional celebrations or feasts with friends and family.
It is crucial to remember that rituals are personal and what works for one person may not work for another. The most important thing is to find a ritual that makes you feel good and helps you say goodbye to the year in a positive and meaningful way.
