Conscious handling of the rough nights increases your possibilities to create your new year and your success actively and positive.


The rough nights with their individual topics representing the year, give you a step by step guide to effortless success. Effortless success does not mean that you do not have to invest time and work. It means that you are going to have fun and it will not feel like work because you keep yourself busy with topics and areas you are interested in and – hopefully – even have a passion for. Remember that success means for everybody something different e.g. job, kids, garden, business, etc.


“Find a job you love and you'll never work a day in your life.”

This quote is attributed to several intelligent heads like Confucius and Mark Twain. I have no idea who is it from, but I think it is genius.


Important is to occupy yourself with what you are interested in and that you start taking action. Step by step will you start realizing that you are the creator of your fate. You set the course and you decide which way you take.


The rough nights go back to the Celts and Germanic tribes and their traditions. They saw them as a time of transition, a time of renewal and rebirth and as a time of upraise. The perfect point in time to bring new or continuous plans for your success on their way.


We are getting started with round one of the rough nights where we are going to create a solid foundation with healthy roots. But first a few general tips what you can do during the rough nights.

 #1 Heart over head – in my opinion one of the most important tips for the rough nights

Less thinking, more feeling – listen to your heart and your gut – and allow yourself to sense and guess more.


#2 become still – meditation

Become still and listen to your inner self. What feelings are coming up? What desires, wishes, unfulfilled needs, and also ideas, possibilities. The crazier the better.


#3 Keep an open mind, acknowledge signs and interpret them – write a diary

Keep an open mind for everything, allow yourself to be curious, positive and dreamful. Be open for something new and a new way. Notice each and every encounter with human beings or/and animals, a text passage in a book, podcast or movie that you respond to, touch you. Memories, thoughts, dreams and visions, everything has a meaning. Ask yourself what it could stand for. What comes into your mind first – the answer of your soul – is usually the correct answer, write it down. Everything else is your mind talking.


I recommend you to write a diary during the rough nights in which you note everything.


#4 Write a dream diary

Every morning note what you have dreamed. Dreams can be messages which can have important meaning during the rough nights. You can use your diary for this.


#5 Smoke cleansing

Energetic cleansing of your flat, office, garden, etc.


#6 Go into nature

Going for a walk through nature is balm for your soul and energises it. It gives you peace and clarity.

Now, we’ll go into round one of the rough nights, 25th December, Christmas Day. It is energetically assigned to the month of January.


January is the beginning of the year. Let’s view the year as a project just like your future plan. Both need a solid foundation, a healthy basis and strong roots.


As with each and every project it is important to prepare and plan thoroughly to transform our intentions into actions. And, as with everything in life, it is best to start from the inside out.


Answer yourself the following questions to strengthen your roots:

  • What state are your roots in – the roots of your family?
  • On which foundation are your roots build onto?
  • How do you encounter your ancestors`
  • Do you ask them for advice and help? (signs, inspirations, etc.)
  • Which part in your family wants to be healed?
  • Who do you want to forgive? (Including yourself. Forgiveness is for you not the others.)


After that answer the following questions for your foundation and to start planning your success:

  • What do you want to achieve and put into practice in the New Year? (wishes, dreams, plans, goals, etc.)
  • What do I want to take with me into the New Year? (Resources, relationships, well-tried, etc.)
  • What do I want to let go and leave behind? (old injuries, limiting beliefs, prejudice, bad habits, judgments, relationships, old patterns, etc.)


Now, write a list of everything what you want to let go and leave behind.


Your rituals for the first rough night

#1 Bless and honour the roots of your family by lighting a candle for every family member. Say out loud or to yourself from all your heart, “I bless this light and I bless you.” And think of the family member you want to give your blessing.


#2 Burn your list of what you want to let go or leave behind in a fireproof form, best do it outside, and observe as everything goes up in smoke.


#3 Give mother nature a present, e.g. feeding birds.


#4 Leave a light on during the night for your ancestors. They cleared the way for you.


#5 Smoke clean your rooms with sage.


#6 Take a sea salt bath for energetic cleansing. When you shower the salt of imagine a green light taking off negative energy of you.



Last but not least

Take the first of your 13 wishes you wrote down and burn it. Asd the universe to take care of it.
