Day 31 of the Great Release Challenge
Congratulations on an AWESOME New You!
by Silver RavenWolf
Your Mission Today: You’ve done all this marvelous work… Where will you go from here? What plans have you made for the coming months? What things will you do to show off the new you? Today, make yourself a colorful, arty list complete with pics, poems, affirmations, etc. that focus on the goals you would like to obtain this year. Put this list on your altar, or sacred space, under a bowl of white sugar to entice the Happy Spirits of the New Year. I even designed a Lucky Hex Double Distelfink drawing for you to use on your altar (see pic above).*
Tonight is New Year’s Eve! Our BFC Healing Circle will be doing our own New Year’s Eve Ritual at 9:00 PM EST. If you would like to light a white or silver candle to join in, and simply relax and meditate at that time — we’d love for you to meld your energy with ours. We will be working for healing, success, and good fortune throughout the coming year. Then, exactly at Midnight, we’ll be participating in the Rolling Peace Magick — chanting the word “Peace” and connecting with Spirit in an effort to bring enlightenment to ourselves and the world around us as the New Year rings in!
It has been a pleasure working with you these past thirty days. I’ve loved every moment, every post, every comment. Thank you all for making this year’s release challenge a marvelous success!

Day 30 of the Great Release Challenge!
Welcome — Today — To the AWESOME New You!
by Silver RavenWolf
Your Mission Today: Congratulate Yourself! You did it! Thirty challenging days of change to create that AWESOME new you!
There is, however, one part of the challenge that I didn’t cover this year due to the Mercury retrograde cycle — and that is choosing something of your appearance — and changing it. So, with Mercury going direct today, perhaps sometime within the next week you may wish to get a hair cut or new style, try a new type of clothing persona, begin a vitamin or exercise program, etc. Something that you WANT to do, and maybe have been thinking about — to change your appearance.
That’s the very last challenge of this season — turn you into the you — you truly are — bright, beautiful, creative, intelligent — and of course, charming!
The Golden Net Meditation
To finish our thirty days of release work, let’s light a white candle, place a clear glass of water beside it, and sit back and relax. Breathe deeply several times, enjoying peace, harmony and contentment. Close your eyes and think about your toes. Relax, relax, relax those toes. Fill them with white light. Move the light into the arches of our feet… relax, relax, relax those arches. Now the heels — white light and relaxation. Say the word “relax” in your mind several times as you move into your ankles, your calves, your knees, your thighs, and so forth. Relaxing and moving the white light up into your body. Keep going with your hips, stomach, chest, shoulders, arms, wrists and fingers. Repeating the word “relax” and letting the white light flow into each body part. Up into your neck (especially the back of your neck), face, third eye, and finally crown. Hold the white light at your crown as long as you can, breathing deeply, allowing the white light to permeate your entire body. Repeat in your mind at least three times: “I know I am happy, healthy, and strong.”
If you hold any anxiety, release it now by saying to yourself at least three times: “I release all anxiety and negativity within and outside of my body,” and allow the negativity to flow out of yourself. If you like, think of a golden, sparkling, sticky net sent by Spirit descending over your entire body, then lifting upward off the top of your head, carrying any anxiety or negativity with it.
Breathe deeply at least three times, then open your eyes. At this very point is when you fill the air around you with any intent that you desire, by saying at least three times: “I know _____________” (fill in the blank). It is this moment of serenity, of utter stillness, that carries great power. A void that you will fill with your focused desire. Remember — no strings, meaning no negative thought threads. “You know” and that will be that. Done. Over. Finished. It is yours!
Remember the small rock in the story? After the first time you do this meditation, call for a rock. I’m not joking. Sit quietly and call for a small rock that is right for you. This isn’t a wish rock — it is a rock to remind you that all the power lies in you — you simply must learn to channel your mind in the right direction. It is true that all living things have energy. The rock is to help support you as your journey through this next, exciting new year. Next year, if you still have it, give the rock back to nature, and call another. The rock is a symbol of your self-confidence, the stability of knowing, and the amazing energy that is you.
Practice this meditation, if you like for at least one week, 30 days is better, 60 even more so. Your desire that you focus on can change over the successive days — the structure, the outline practice of sitting down, relaxing, removing negativity — that’s the core of the meditation.
Now, I want to explain to you how someone becomes famous, or rich, or beats cancer, or achieves their inner most dreams.
They think with no strings.
And they KNOW what they desire will occur.
That’s the secret.
At the beginning of this challenge I promised you an awesome new you.
