Blessings for the New Year

Here are some of my favorite affirmations, blessings, and other sayings to help encourage you to make the most of your new year!


May the Warm Winds of Heaven
Blow softly upon your house.
May the Great Spirit
Bless all who enter there.
May your Mocassins
Make happy tracks
in many snows,
and may the Rainbow
Always touch your shoulder.

Cherokee Blessing

May your blessings be more
And your troubles be few,
And may want and worry
be a stranger to you.

Irish Blessing

May the roof above us never fall in.
And may the friends gathered below it never fall out.

Irish Blessing

May all beings have happiness and the causes of happiness;
May all be free from sorrow and the causes of sorrow;
May all never be separated from the sacred happiness which is sorrowless;
And may all live in equanimity, without too much attachment and too much aversion,
And live believing in the equality of all that lives.

Buddhist Prayer

May you be well. 
May you be cleansed and purified
Of all that isn’t health. 
May every cell in your body
Wake up and fight. 
May the powerful light of healing
Move into every part of you. 
May you return to being purely you. 
May you be well. 

Joanna Fuchs

Deep Peace of the running wave to you
Deep Peace of the flowing air to you
Deep Peace of the quiet earth to you
Deep Peace of the shining stars to you
Deep peace of the shades of night to you
Moon and stars always giving Light to you.
