The first part is less complicated. On the day before the New Year's Eve take out your broomstick (or electrical vacuum cleaner) and clean your home, chanting : "Negativity begone, out of my way once and for all!". Try to vacuum your house starting from inside and finishing at the door. Once finished open the door and proclaim one last time: "Negativity begone, out of my way once and for all!". Then prepare a mixture of salt and blessed water and sprinkle the mixture in your house saying: "Negativity is gone, a barrier of light is built to protect me and the ones I love!". Try to put your best effort in both processes as a) negativity is the worst debris you want in your house and b) protecting yourself and the ones you love is a fundamental step to achieve stability in your life without disturbances and interferences. If you feel like it, cast a magic spell for protection and create a protective magical amulet for you and the ones you love and present it to them as a gift.
