Day Nineteen — 2011 Great Release Challenge!
Monday 19, December
by Silver RavenWolf
Holiday frivolity looms just around the corner, and no doubt this week you’ll be running those last minute errands, handling food prep, adding decorative touches, and attending those must-do as well as want-to functions. In the best mix of seamlessly blending our living and learning, our main goal this week is to stay on top of what we have already accomplished while trying to juggle the madness of the season. Our main goal this week is releasing negative feelings about the past as well as not accepting the stress that the holidays so often freely offer. During this stressful week, remember and practice your Gold Star Meditation, particularly the day where you became the star itself.
Today carries a magickal question and a simple task. (By the way, how is that room doing where you blessed everything?). The Question: When are in a hurry, which element do you prefer to work magick with? This would be the element you immediately reach for, the first one that comes to mind.
The Task: For this week, each day fill a bowl of water and bless it. Place the water in a central location of the home or apartment (you can even use a cup of water at work and if you are not allowed an open cup, how about a closed bottle of water in a drawer or your tool box). Change and bless new water each day. Pour the old water outside into the earth (not concrete).
Watch this week to see how the blessed water affects the behavior of those in the environment.
Ring the bell!
Your Physical Mission Today —
For the Busy Person — Movies, Books, Magazines, CD’s, DVD’s — find an orderly place for them if you don’t have time to go through them. Remember though, you still have to release one thing today. It can be some of these, or something else.
For the Dedicated Enthusiast — Movies, Books, Magazines, CD’s, DVD’s — Give, trash, or organize. While you’re going through these entertainment items, you might want to choose at least three that can be used as stress-busters for those really tough days in life. Set these where you know you’ll be able to find them when you need them. (I know exactly where my Shaun the Sheep collection is and I just added Kung Fu Panda II — love Jack Black — to my OMG-this-has-been-a-crappy-day-array). When I want to think beyond my small world? That is a different collection that includes Bullet Proof Monk, the original Matrix, and a few others.
OR, today…perhaps you’d like to take time to organize your personal Book of Shadows or work on a private research collection — that’s okay, too. Just remember, you must release at least one thing today, even if it us just taking out the trash.
Ahead of us? We still have the kitchen cabinets and the oven (two of the larger tasks). You may have done these already in preparation for the holidays, or you may be saving them for after the 25th of December. We do have to get to both of them accomplished as combined, they represent family abundance. If the kitchen is filthy and stocked with old food, the energy is stagnant and will clog that flow of prosperity that you may desperately need.

Remember that list you made on the first day? Keep it handy, we’ll be working with it soon. I bet you are super getting sick of that sentence, huh! That’s because two things may have already occurred:
You got so sick of seeing the reminder that you went ahead and took care of what was on that list.
You’ve kept avoiding the list, and I’m just being the helpful-reminder-list-elf.
Release Program Diary
Last night we celebrated our BFC Hearthstone Yule. It was wonderful to spend time in ritual, laughter, and good conversation with the added plus of a winter feast!
While I’ve been tossing, cleaning and organizing, my husband has filled the role of Fix-It Person. Today he repaired the burned out switch for the back porch light (it died in early summer). I can now actually see when I take the dogs out at night. Yippee!!
Peace with the Gods
Peace with Nature
So Be It!
