Day Ten — 2011 Great Release Challenge!
Saturday, 10 December

by Silver RavenWolf

Today we have a fun experiment!  Choose three small items in the home, one of which can be broken when the experiment is over.  Cleanse two of the items with holy water.  (I keep a spray bottle of blessed water mixed with herbs like lavender and rosemary in my fridge).  The first item you blessed will be the one you will eventually break — I’d like you to hold that item and curse at it, let out all your frustration, your woes, your pain, your hatred…got it? …into this object.  Set aside.

The second object that you blessed — fill it with love, make it sparkle, make it shine, see it glitter in your mind…and attach to this all the positive things you would like to draw into yourself and your environment.

Set aside.

The third item?  Just let it sit there.

Now.  Watch.

Watch what happens with family members (and yourself) when you pass by or come close to each of the objects.  Pay close attention.

Once you feel you’ve had enough of the experiment, take the yucky item outside and BREAK IT.  (Be careful — don’t let pieces fly up and hurt yourself).  As you bust this up (I’m using a sacred hammer by the way) declare loudly to the universe that you are releasing all the negativity within yourself.  Then, take a deep breath, and spray yourself with some of that blessed water or you may choose to use empowered perfume or Florida Water.

To make this really powerful — decorate your hammer — make an official “break it up the crap” hammer.  Add runic sigils, angelic designs — I don’t care — be creative!

If you do this experiment, please let us all know how the process worked for you.

Onward and upward!

Is it getting any tougher, or are you boom-sailing?  Remember, the idea of the Great Release Challenge is to willingly let go of stuff, ideas, beliefs, and habits that no longer serve us well.  Sometimes, we don’t even realize how well we are doing in the challenge until the program is over and then it is like a big, fat, yummy breath of fresh air!  Don’t give up!  Keep going!

It is okay if you can’t get to the listed challenge each day — just release something, anything every day — it doesn’t have to be what I have written down.  If you are stuck living with someone else and must abide by their rules on what environmentally to let go of or not — concentrate on yourself, your things, your ideas, your habits.  The program will work either way.

Ring the bell!  It’s time for the next challenge!

Your Mission Today — 

For the Busy Person — Clean out under the kitchen sink.

For the Dedicated Enthusiast — Clean out under the kitchen sink.  Since it is the weekend, are you ready for that refrigerator or the oven?  You might want to schedule your attack.

While you are cleaning this area, think of your own body and its pipe lines — mental, spiritual and physical.  Are there ideas within yourself that are clogging up the pipes of your own healing and success?

Gold Star Meditation For Today —

If you complete this challenge — you earn another gold star!  This one goes on your behind.  Yes, that’s right.  On your tuckus.  Activate it when you want to give yourself a kick in the butt.  Besides, everyone’s derrière should glow now and then, don’t you think?

Remember that list you made on the first day?  Keep it handy, we’ll be working with it soon.

Release Program Diary

For me, writing this blog, the December Lunar Eclipse of the Moon in Gemini and the Sun in Sagittarius is tomorrow morning.  Before I worked on December 10th’s tasks, I did a quick blog on the Eclipse with several links.  I believe all magick is just a science we haven’t quite managed to pin down, and in that thought process, I always look to the science we do know first as a base meter, and then try to follow through with magickal applications as they might seem to naturally grow from that science.  (Not that science, of course, is always right as we understand it.)

Tonight’s energy involves Gemini (Air, Mutable) and Sagittarius (Fire, Mutable) — Communicative energy-in-motion — that adapts easily to change.  I’ll be doing magick at the time of the Eclipse that concentrates on the higher vibrations of this type of energy which includes communicating with eloquence, laugher, traveling etc.  Tonight, because Uranus turns direct in Aries, I’ll be making Dragon’s Blood wax melts and candles to gather the slingshot effect of more power; because when you go for Dragon’s Blood you’re going for the power.

In the meantime, I’m washing the curtains throughout the house, which is a bit of a problem because, having a dementia patient to care for, I’m already doing three, sometimes four loads of laundry daily.  Just trying to fit my own clothes into the schedule is somewhat of a problem, lol, but I’m bound and determined that I’m going to get all those curtains done!

Many of you have mentioned that the planet Mercury is retrograde — yepper!  That’s why I haven’t mentioned any drastic changes in your daily lives right now.  I’m holding off on your new hair-do and a few other things until Mercury turns direct.  Right now, Mercury Retrograde is truly the perfect time for self-review.  We think about those big decisions we want to make, and then we let them percolate in our brains until the timing is right to act on those ideas that we feel have the most merit.  In the meantime, as I clean, I’m also tying up loose ends on all sorts of things, doing my best to finish things as the slips to a close.

Is there one thing you can think of that you would really like to have finished before the year ends?  Is there a way to do that during this challenge?

Think about it.

Peace with the Gods
Peace with Nature
Peace Within
So Be It!

For Tomorrow:  The refrigerator.

  1. what is rthe pupose of the tird object? And should the objects be placed in one room or seo=perate from one another?

  2. Lady Raven Wolf,
    I just realized I might have done something to upset you and honestly I didn’t mean to. OK so what I did is talk about you and this course on my blog today. And until just now I didn’t even think that you might not want anyone too. If you want I will take it down, if it makes you feel any better I only have 9 followers. Again I’m sorry I should have asked first. Natalie

  3. Sadly, this is another challenge that has to wait. Our garbage disposal broke last night and in trying to fix it my husband found out the pipe was corroded. So now we have to wait until the landlord can come by tomorrow to fix it. No sense in cleaning under there when it’s all going to get moved around anyway and have to put it back again. I’m planning to clean it out as soon as the work is done. I did get some of this taken care of yesterday though; I tossed a few things while I was pulling stuff out for yesterday’s cleaning. *sigh*

    1. I totally get it. I feel like every time I try to do something like this, my plans get thwarted, leaving me wearing my sad face, with even more frustration.

      1. That’s why you do just a little bit at a time, and why the motto of the program is: Just get rid of one thing — doesn’t have to be what I list.

  4. I love this idea. Every December is pretty stressful for me, though I can’t really pinpoint why. I guess it’s a culmination of things. Anyway, it’ll be nice to just smash some stuff.

  5. My energy experiment worked…two members of my family asked me to take the Christmas bulb I charged with negative energy (it is one of a set, I have many more, and this particular one is slightly discolored anyway) off the tree even though it has hung there for the last two weeks and I really didn’t think anyone would notice it. Those same family members also raved about how pretty the one I charged with positive energy is as if this is the first time they have ever seen it. I thought it would be unlikely that I would get any response on this because of my items being bulbs on the tree but I was wrong. I plan to leave the positive bulb out until after the holidays and hopefully it brings a little joy to the house during this stressful time of year. I also needed the gold star for today and I am sure I will get much use out of it in the days and weeks to come. Today was a very productive day. 🙂

    1. Thank you so much for tell us the results of your experiment! How cool is that!! Just goes to show that empowering things for yourself, for your family, and for friends — even strangers — isn’t a waste of your time — quite the opposite — it is the best way you could have spent that time and energy! Thank you so, so much for sharing this!

  6. Over the last couple of days it’s been real difficult to meet the challenges. I just haven’t had the usual gusto I normally reserve for fighting the dirt and grub. All the light bulbs in the apt were just fine, and I thought the windows were clean. So I went through the motions ever so lame-like and discovered, they actually needed it! Big time.

    Then today I was in too much of a rush to clean under the sink. And charge trinkets? Forget it! So I figured, washing the comforter would at least be a step in the right direction. Well, for some reason I started chanting your “Evil be gone and never return” chant as I was going down the stairs to the laundry room. Once there I noticed the clothes on the line were dry, and chanting the entire time I started to fold clothes, and wouldn’t you know, but a hanger practically exploded in my hand! Who needs hammers when you have a good old fashioned exorcist charm?

    Up I went to put away the laundry and my husband warns, “15 minutes and we have to leave!”. “Okay.” Before I knew it I was on my knees, head deep under the sink, wiping the surfaces down and rearranging all the supplies.

    All done.

    For whatever reason, something in me was resisting the great clean up these past few days. All I needed was a “despojo”.

    Gotta say, Silver, there’s deep wisdom in your cleansing madness, and ancient power in the simplest charms. Thank you for leading and teaching us!!!

    1. There is indeed that ancient power — we just have to tap into it. Thank you so much for taking the time to share this wisdom with everyone. We all needed to read it!

  7. My husband and I are doing your “cleanse” together and it has been a very interesting experience! Since it is a team effort, we are getting tons of clearing done, but its intriguing how we pass the “torch” back and forth.

    On the Under the Sink Cleanse we got it done in a speedy fashion and I was so proud of us 🙂 …
    Then my husband was doing up a few dishes before bed (late around here, about 1 am) and suddenly I heard him mopping the floor, over and over again. There was lots of splashing as the water was squeezed from the mop. Seems the dishwasher hose had popped off the pipe under the sink and had flooded our newly cleaned cupboard and floor (and my daughter’s room as it flowed down the hall).

    After an hour and a half, we had the kitchen, floor, under the sink, dishes etc re-cleaned. And all I could think was, “dang, I really didn’t feel like doing the “break it” part of this, seems like it “broke” anyways…”

    Gave me a good giggle in the middle of mopping. 🙂

    Thank you for all of this…it’s been very fruitful and energy Positive!

  8. Does your site have a contact page? I’m having a tough time locating it but, I’d
    like to shoot you an email. I’ve got some recommendations for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it grow over time.
