Day Eight of the Great Release Challenge

Day 8 of the Great Release Challenge!
A Step-by-Step Program to an Awesome New You!

by Silver RavenWolf

Braucherei uses, strong, simple, powerful picture and word associations to get the job done.

Your Mission Today:  The Refrigerator!   EEEEEKKKK!  I know, I know…but, we had to do it, didn’t we?  We really have to take care of this.  Besides, its right before the holidays, you’ll want to stock up and who wants to shove nice, fresh food into that dark hole that functions as your food preservation vehicle?

I didn’t think so.

And, today I promised you a Braucherei ritual for banishing evil, and so you shall have it!  Take you ten minutes, tops.

Now, before we go any further, there is a funny thing about this little charm — it banishes stuff you didn’t even think was bad, as well as the rotten stuff you’ve focused on.  For example, when I first poured Evil Be Gone candles a few years ago, a good and close friend was strangely revealed as a whopping, lying, snake in the grass after I sent him a set of those candles as a gift.  No foolin’.  Then, last summer, I poured another set of candles (Evil Be Gone) and gave one to a friend who was having problems with her husband’s sister.  She did the ritual.  Short.  Sweet.  Thinking the sister was toast.  Except, it wasn’t just the sister, it was the good-for-nothing-cheating-husband, too (that she didn’t know was cheating, by-the-by) that took a forever hike.  So!  Expect stuff you thought was stable (that’s blinding you silly) to up and pop, and go away.  Now, on the bright side, we’ve used this spell to banish cancer, other unfortunate health problems, debt, etc., — the spell isn’t picky.  The candles aren’t necessary.  The power is in the whisper.  The magick is in you.

Just how brave are ya, pumpkin?

All you need for this little rit is some salt, a glass of water and a red (or white candle).  That’s it.  A white emergency candle will do.  As I mentioned yesterday, Braucherei is a system that tries its best to use what you already have.  Yes, magickal toys, bells, whistles are great — but, you ain’t worth your salt if you can’t whomp without them — or so that’s what they say.  They do.  In Braucherei.

Since we are concentrating on release this month and letting go of stuff so that great, fantastic things can come into your life, buying something just for one spell or charm is wasting that space you’ve already cleared.  However, if you are just dying to use some things you already have in your magickal cabinet, then here is a small list:  Frankincense, Myrrh, Cinnamon, Dragon’s Blood Resin, and a conjuring bag.  The fifth ingredient is a lock of your hair.  Juniper berries are also added as an option; but not a blinding necessity.

Sit down somewhere (in Braucherei you can sit on a stump and it doesn’t matter) with the candle, water and salt in front of you.  If you’ve made a conjuring bag to carry with you, hold it in your hand.  Close your eyes and encircle yourself with white light.  Repeat the opening charm from the Morning Braucherie Prayer I gave you.  Yeah.  Eastwards I stand…that one — you’ll find it on this blog.  Say it nine times.  Take a nice deep breath.  Connect with Spirit.  Hold your hands over the salt, water and the red candle, and repeat nine times at a whisper:

Evil be gone
Do not return
The horse has run off
And the bridges are burned!

Start as a soft whisper — the go loud on the last chant (if you can — if you don’t have privacy, don’t sweat it — continue to whisper).  After the ninth repetition, stamp the floor really, REALLY hard, and say softly, “Its done.  Done and gone.  I know its gone.”  So mote it be, in a nice, soft, matter-of-fact whisper.  Draw an equal-armed cross in the air to seal the working.

Light the red candle.  Gather up salt, water and candle (yeah, juggling is interesting, but you can do it — or have a family member carry the candle and you carry the salt and water — makes a great togetherness rit) and walk through every room of the house, repeating the chant, doesn’t matter how many times, just keep muttering. Gone into the zone.  Let yourself glide with it.  As you walk and whisper, scatter a little bit of the salt and water in each room.  Make sure you bring light to every corner of the room with that candle.

Go back to the place where you started.  Place the burning candle in front of you, the water and any salt you may have left.  Keep hold of that conjuring bag if you made one.  Say, “Its done.  Done and gone.  I know its gone.  So mote it be.”  Stamp your foot on the floor.

Now its time to finish.  Close your eyes, take a deep breath.  You should emotionally be feeling a little lighter and brighter now.  A little stronger than before.  Repeat the chant nine times once more.  Say softly, “Its done.  Done and gone.  I know its gone.  So mote it be.”   Stamp our foot on the floor, visualizing that whatever was left you just ground under your foot right down to the center of the earth where that negative energy can be transformed.  Seal that spot on the floor with the equal-armed cross in the air.

As you’ll notice, Braucherei (or Pow-Wow) uses simple, strong, powerful visualization sequences to set your mind in a focused, primary function mode.  It doesn’t play games.  It isn’t flowery.  It is straightforward and to the point.  In this charm, you are commanding Evil to leave, you are telling it that its vehicle of choice (whatever that may be) has run off (here the equivalent is the horse) and it simply cannot come back. Ever.  You’ve just torched the bridge it used to get to you.  So there!  Take that!  Boom!  Your carcass is gone.  Don’t let the door hit ya!

My Release Diary:  With my desk in order, I wandered to the basement (Oh, Lordy) and stuffed two garbage bags full there.  Now, the fun part is to get them up the stairs and out the door.  I truly believe that hoarders have so much trouble getting rid of stuff, because in this day and age, in most places in the US, we’re limited by our towns and cities on how much we can throw away at any given time.  If you have gobs of stuff — it will cost you a horrible amount that most can’t easily fork over, especially in this economy.  So, they’re defeated before they start.  Yesterday, I recited this jingle:   “Santa Claus with empty sleigh, come and take my trash away!”  I’ll tell ya if it worked.

  1. Silver, I can’t even begin to tell you how good following your release challenge is making me feel! I am sitting at my clean desk ready to start the day.. and okay.. I will tackle the fridge.. I loved doing the sock and underwear drawer! LOL.. that was actually fun to banish the socks that were hiding not wanting to be found!
    Bright Blessings!

  2. here we go egain with the synchronicities, the horse remeinds me of the night mare card i drew when i was getting a reading, and a tattoo my husband has always wanted to get, wonder what im going to find out/get rid of when i do the spell u have listed.? Dosent sound good does it. Wish me luck!!

  3. It’s always fun when all those left over chores aren’t thought of as “chores”. For the longest time I’ve had to push myself to rid of the clutter, and in a personal cleansing’s made the process alot more easing. And easier to break the “But I like it so much, I swear I’ll use it” habit. And as for spell work..This one sounds very useful. Even if it’s for the built up stress that doesn’t know how to leave. I write what workings I’m going to do and as I copy them down..I heavily concentrate on the objects needed, the process, and what the purpose/s are. By the time I’m done writing I already begin to feel that uplift of energy; that builds even more as the ritual or spell is at work. I really can’t wait to complete this one..Thankyou for sharing it. Blessed be!

    1. You are absolutely right, Ann! By the time you are done designing or writing, you’ve already entered the zone! A good friend of mine, Ray Malbrough (author of Charms, Spells and Formularies) had an excellent teaching style in that he taught you as your life unfolded. Part of his style was to send you hither and yon looking for a compendium of unusual things — a certain herb, a key, dirt from a specific place — you ran your tuckus off trying to find everything. Mid-way during my training for Spiritism with him I realized that the running, searching, finding, taking notes, involving the family — all that — was a major part of the working! My effort and focus — my journey — was just as important as the circle we finally cast and the magick we did therein. I now teach my students this way, as well. Thanks for reminding us of how important our every action can be.

  4. Good morning Silver! The ritual is done (perfect timing i must say as i never have the house to myself!) and the fridge will be tackled very soon. Im finding myself drained and tired after the clearing of my house which is very unusual for me. Im not sure why, maybe i have lots of unknown things that are being cleared? So im taking a bit of a break. I do have a question, with the conjure bag how long do you want us to carry it with us? Happy Clearing everyone!

    Brightest Blessings

    1. Well the fridge is finally done, old expired items thrown out, inside and out of fridge scrubbed sparkling clean and reorganized. Im still feeling drained but i think i may have figured out why. I asked for EXTRA clearing and releasing today LOL hmmm don’t know if that was a smart move on my part LOL guess i will know by tomorrow. Thanks again Silver for everything. I look forward to your posts everyday. I love how everything looks, feels and sparkles afterwards.


    2. Conjure bags, as rule of magickal thumb, last approximately 30 days (from moon to moon) and then need to be renewed. This can be done by feeding it (more herbs, another charm, a trinket) and re-blessing with the same chants you used before. For some conjuring bags, such as ones that include the Himmelsbrief, last much longer, driven by the love of the person who gives it. Thank you for asking!

  5. I got off to a fast start the first day, pitched crap out of the bathroom that should have been gone eaons ago. The next day I cleaned my purses and pitched one of those. Then I hit a seven day stretch of work, followed by a 2 day bout of stomach flu, bleck… I had started the as above and …HIT my wall… Yesterday I tackled part of the desk and By today I was feeling better, dragged my son in on it with me and whew. His room is looking great, the living room has no cobwebs in it and one wall is washed down. I cleaned out two corners, finished the desk and at least 5 bags of trash have went out the door. Luckily I just replaced my fridge a few weeks ago so I used today to play catch- up and yes, I will wipe down the fridge inside and out to catch those errant crumbs. Lesson learned for me was that looking at the house as a whole was overwhelming me, so, I am focusing on the main living areas at this time and will add other areas as my schedule (and energy, hehe) will allow.

  6. When I read this blog this morning and saw that it was time to do the fridge, I was terrified! I was pretty sure there were things in there that had taken on a life of their own by now. But, it actually wasn’t too bad, only took me about 30 minutes.
    I have to say that I’m a little nervous about trying out the Braucherei rituals, since I don’t know much about it.

  7. Thank you! I have enjoyed the chants and charms very much. We are blessed to have Rob Chapman joining us here in WV for a class on Pow-wow next month and I wouldn’t miss it for the world!

    The fridge didn’t put up much of a fight, just a lot of old stuff to be thrown away and I pulled everything out to wash. I find myself gravitating to these places we have tidied up, perhaps my subconscious is trying to tell me something. lol Breaking it into these small bites turns an overwhelming task into something much more manageable. I’m actually looking forward to these tasks. Now that’s Magick! -cackle-

    Bright Blessings,

  8. Greetings, Dear Silver ~ Did you notice (or was it intentional?) that this project began on the first night of Chanukkah, and Day 8 has the graphic of a candle? How fitting!! ~ Luna BleuStar (COPH)

  9. Cleaned the refrigerator on “the day.” Still behind with the tail end of day 5, must do days six and seven.

    The refrigerator was actually in good shape. The only surprise was an unopened package of lard that expired in 2009. LOL.

    Will do the rit later.

  10. So today I grabbed some random stuff out of the closet, threw out an old fireplace tool set, a half ax handle, broken planter, three broken chairs and went back to the fridge. I’ve fallen short on a few of the challenges, but having them has been the impetus to do SOMETHING. I’ve been somewhat paralyzed as far as doing anything since my husband of 35 yrs. passed last year. Have been doing Braucherei morning prayer for healing the last 4 days. Not sure if it’s the prayer, the releasing or both, but a lot has been going on. I was hit with tears and such raw pain that it felt like I wouldn’t survive if I didn’t stop it. I had a dream about my husband that suggests that my sub-conscious is starting to accept the loss. And if you accept the idea of a body-mind connection, the tears are needed as well as the acceptance, because the glaucoma I had managed for 14 years was suddenly not able to be managed since his death, leaving me to need beta blockers while I look for funding for surgery to prevent blindness.

    1. Thank you for discussing the emotional release, Jo! Tears, bursts of anger, and then a feeling of emotional cleansing often occurs during release activities, particularly if you have gone through a traumatic experience such as move of house, divorce, the loss of a loved one, the loss of a job — the seven big ones of stress. Thank you so much for sharing this. We are with you!

  11. Argh! That was supposed to be day 9 comment. Whatever, it still applies. Thanks for the challenge, seems to be exactly what I needed.
