Day Five! of the Great Release Challenge
26 Days to an Awesome New You!
by Silver RavenWolf
Your Mission for Today: A feeling of impatience and itchiness? That’s okay — you are feeling the as-above of the New Moon in Sagittarius this afternoon and Uranus swinging to direct this evening. Today — be sure to blow off some steam with an enjoyable past time. Check further on in the article for more a bit more on today’s astrological energies.
As to your release program — Time to clean out, rearrange, and re-order books, CD’s, DVD’s, VCR Tapes, etc.
What you listen to, and what you watch as entertainment has a great deal of influence on the type of energy that you are putting into your personal field. Negative, frightening stuff day-after-day-after-day can lower your personal empowerment factor. Hey, I love horror movies, too; but, a constant diet of anything isn’t mentally healthy and will eventually inhibit your ability to rise above the common crap of the world. Same thing with music, radio shows, gossip rags, etc. — a constant stream of negativity will eventually bring you a Titanic experience in your mind. At least for the remainder of our Great Release Program — try to bring balance into your life by making a concerted effort in choosing how you tickle your eyeballs and what you stuff in your ears. At the end of the challenge period, you can determine for yourself how your entertainment diet affects you, and whether you would like to make a permanent change, or not.
While you are mulling over the sights and sounds that orchestrate your personal alchemy, why not take a look at the art work you are attracted to? What is hanging on your walls, tucked in your journal, or squeezed into the back of a hall closet with a grimace? The energy of image has much to say about you, and about your state of mind at any given moment. If you create art for others (or yourself) what has been your current theme lately? Every image in your environment carries its own energy with a greater effect than you might imagine. What the art is saying isn’t necessarily a bad thing, yet it is a barometer, a clue, to that which is currently inside of you. To fairly judge the art around you (even magazine covers, calendars, date-books, etc.) imagine you are a stranger walking into your living environment for the first time. What opinion would you draw from examining the decor, particularly the art? Think about it.
Today, New Moon unfolds at 12:36 PM EST in Sagittarius — a happy, fiery, busy, chatty, sign — ruled by Jupiter, the planet of expansion and great benefits. As the moon moves to new, the planet Uranus is shaking off the doldrums and preparing to go direct at 8:50 PM EST. From retrograde to direct, Uranus can energize good things and bad things — think wisely today about how you will use this incoming energy that can zap the top of a skyscraper to pieces. Try not to focus that energy on the little, stupid stuff. Instead, take that amazing stuff and sling-shot it into something worthwhile! Do a ritual, work a little spell, or simply drink in and focus this power on something you desire.
My Release Diary: When we set something on the floor, we put it there because, psychologically, we want that object to be secure and safe — thus, we want ourselves to feel secure and safe, and for some reason, don’t feel that way if the floor in our environment is so jammed that walking becomes a risk to life and limb. When we run out of space on the floor, the chairs and tables are the next to go. And the piles climb. If you are dealing with this scenario — know this — you are screaming that you do not feel safe and secure. The problem here, is, the more you pile, the less real security you have because you aren’t allowing the energy in the home to flow in a healthy way. You are jamming it, blocking it, and allowing it to collect negative appendages. Think of clutter piles as little monsters, sitting there, salivating, waiting to chomp at your ankles and rip out your heart. There ya go! Awful, huh? Time to banish those monsters! A hugely cluttered floor means you are dealing with a terrible mountain of fear. Time to grab on to your bootstraps and start kicking trash — out the door — fear monsters along with it!
I’ve spent the last several days embracing (more than ever) my Braucherei work through art, which then slides easily into spellwork. I have a large picture of Marie Laveau hanging in my work room. Ray Malbrough gave her to me years ago because I so admire the woman and the many tremendous things she did for people. I often talk to Marie. I even wrote a spell dedicated to her, and use it when I feel I really need an extra boost. Last week I stood in front of the painting and said, “Oh my Marie! What do I do next?”
And she responded: “Be who you are.”
The world is starting to feel lighter. How about you?
