Day Eleven! — 2012 Great Release Challenge!
by Silver RavenWolf
copyright 2012

For the last two days we’ve added a few writing exercises to your challenges.  Today, we’re going practice a mental exercise that creates a visualization background for future work.

We’re going to Happy Town.

Yes, you read that right.

Happy Town is a place where everything is wonderful!  All problems (if there are any) have quick and easy solutions.  Everyone in Happy Town loves what they do and adores where they live.  Happy Town has no sickness; but, they minister to visitors and make them well.  Artists and craftspeople of every type live there.  Everyone likes to talk about what they do, and share their expertise with visitors.  They have plenty of time to spend with you.  You may meet a welder or a garage owner, stock broker or janitor.  The land around Happy Town is filled with country folk that have beautiful farms where they raise food and care for animals.  You will also find a Happy Town Woods, a Happy Town Park, and a Happy Town Healing Center.  Happy Town has sages, healers, scientists and architects — all who work for the good of humankind.  No discrimination on age, sex, color, religion, or sexual orientation exists in Happy Town.  The people there want only to help each other, and those who come to call.  Happy Town is a utopia that works to serve the world with joy.

The way in and out of Happy Town is by train, and the station right now is decorated for the holiday season (that corresponds to where you live in the world).  Special Happy Town greeters  help each and every person off the train.  This greeter gives each visitor a large, burlap bag that they are asked to fill with their worries, fears, anxiety, problems, sickness and any other negativity.  The greeter then throws the bag, while the visitor watches, into a giant, ever-burning, sacred bonfire.  Then, every visitor meets a happy guide who invites them to explore the town.  Happy Town will always exist as long as there is imbalance in the world and people who need help.  Before anyone leaves Happy Town they are handed a special gift by their guide, a gift that is just for them that will in some way assist them in the real world.

I’d like you to take a few minutes today, close your eyes, get on the train to Happy Town and visualize your arrival.  Take as much time as you like to explore Happy Town.  Don’t forget to put all your negativity in a burlap bag and watch the bag burn in the sacred fire before you begin exploring.  When you are ready to board the train to come back to this life, receive your gift from your guide with open arms.

Your Physical Mission Today:  Catch Up on the Little Stuff

During the past ten days I’m sure you’ve seen a bunch of little stuff that requires a special tool, a focused bit of time, or perhaps a missing part.  Today’s physical challenge is dedicated to the small stuff that you’d like to finish or fix.  For example, maybe you realized while working in the kitchen that the spices should be in the cupboard closest to the stove for easier access, or perhaps you need to glue a knob (or replace it) on the bathroom cabinet.  Maybe it is a phone call that you’ve put off; but, really should make or maybe you bought decorations for the kids room; but, never got around to putting them up.  Today’s the day to smooth all those little things away!  Do as much as you can and save the rest for your Wish List (so you don’t forget).

Tomorrow:  Finish Open Holiday Projects

Summary:

1.  Do Your Morning Braucherei Ritual and light your goal candle.
2.  Continue to Work with the Sea of Potential Affirmation.
3.  Practice the Speed Clean exercises.
4.  Do the Happy Town Meditation.
5.  Catch Up on the Little Stuff.

Give yourself one gold star if you did today’s physical Catch- Up Challenge.  Two gold stars if you also practiced the mental Happy Town visualization exercise.  Three gold stars if you managed to catch up and do something you missed from the day before.  Four gold stars if you completed something on your Wish List .  Five Gold Stars if you kept up your Speed Cleaning Exercises.  Remember, for every seven gold stars you earn, you get to treat yourself with something special!
5.  Get ready for tomorrow!!

Peace with the Gods
Peace with Nature
Peace Within.

So be it.

  1. What a wonderful meditation! I surprised myself with some of the negativity and worries I cast into the burlap bag and watched burn in the sacred bonfire. Thank you Silver for this journey.

  2. Happy Town is the best, Silver! As I get ready to enter my second childhood (via my second “adolesense”), I need to connect with what I believe is true……I’m bringing my friends and loved ones too, and maybe they’ll wonder where that “Happy Feeling” came from……..Thanks, so much! We have a bar area off the living room and I started preparing for a Family Holiday party, which we’ll be doing this Saturday. I cleaned out just the floor, and that took me all morning!. I am cleaning plastic ware and now find that I could have a party for 300 and wouldn’t need to buy any! (spoons, knives and forks – that is)…………………I found all 12 of these awesome plastic wine glasses. People can’t tell the difference until they take their first sip………….with 27 people coming – no glass. I feel so much better, now.

  3. Well, since today is catch up on little stuff day, i have to catch up on my laundry and underwear task from yesterday that i never got to finish cause it got too late, So i’ll try to do that today, i also have get my bf to put on one of the handles on the kitchen cabinet and also to call back a relative, that i have been meaning to call.

  4. Did some running around in town for cheap plastic containers for the “pantry”, at the R5.00 store, i chatted to the manager a bit, she told my her body is so sore from climbing up and down to put new stuff on the shelf’s , stuff is going very fast this time of year, so its a bit more strenuous for her (we’re not spring chickens anymore :D) I just made a new batch of bath salts the previous night to relief pains and aches (hey, i can check that of my list now) i told her about it, she took some to try out, (just realized i already gave away 3 little bags full of it today lol). Spend my happy town time under the Pecan tree. Sun is shining, birds are singing, i feel great, tired and sore but great. Also found some great baskets there for the closet (now i must go reorganize it), Monday’s the linens, get washed, i had the strange urge to lay my head down on a purple pillow, luckily i unearthed 2 slips out of the linen closet (forgot i even bought them?) now the bed is a strange combination of blue, white and purple.

    A Happy time to all of you 😀

  5. K, so I went through my closet, my linen closet and my coat closet and got rid of a TON of stuff. But, I also found a place for all of my family games that seemed to be taking up space in the wrong place. I found places for my shoes, all of our coats, hats and gloves for the winter season. And I got rid of the old ratty towels that I hate. I also put in the good will box some of my daughters baby towels that we never use because she is way too big for them now. Now I have a ton of room in my linen closet for more sheets and whatnot that we desperately need. My next project is my daughters closet, but that’s going to take a while because she has a bunch of old baby blankets that need to be gotten rid of, but I have a hard time figuring out which ones to part with. Most of them were hand made and given to her, so I have a hard time getting rid of them. Not sure what to do, so I’ve been putting it off. I dunno. Anyway, that might be something I’ll have to tackle tomorrow (and the procrastination begins). As far as the writing exercises go, I’ve been having a hard time getting started. I know that is kinda lame, but I’m not the best writer in the world, and expressing myself in writing is more of a challenge that I would like it to be. I think in pictures, not in words. Can I meditate instead of write? Is there a different way I can do these exercises besides writing? Thanks.

    1. Why not do pictures? I often add pictures into writing, especially spiritual writing like this. Actually, my free-write on what I wanted to release had pictures in it as well as words (which were wandering all over the page). One of the great things about free writing is it can be what you need it to be. I’ve done free-writes where it was just single words in big bold letters (when I was really angry and not even thinking in phrases).

  6. I just want to start off saying thank you, not only to Silver but everyone else posting their journey. I realized, I look forward to reading everyone else’s posts and sharing my own journey almost as much as doing the tasks…and knowing I am going to post helps keep me on track and pushing through. Hubby is wonderful, but sometimes takes for granted the ‘ordinary’ everyday household stuff that needs to be done, so it is really uplifting to come here every day.

    I thought I wouldn’t have much to do for today, started off by pulling a spring-loaded curtain rod, and fit it to one of my bookshelves to hang corded necklaces on (which took them out of the jumble they were in). Not sure I like it entirely, but for now it works well (I’d love to hang some hooks on a board for them, also thinking that sewing a bunch of buttons on a cloth to hang over a door would work well). Then did a quick clear of my shoes, got rid of two pairs that were too tight for comfort and one pair that some of the stitching was unraveling, none of which I have worn in years.

    Then I was doing my laundry and realized there were three shirts I have that needed a bit of mending, so tossed in a movie and pulled out my needle and thread. Got one shirt adjusted (the arm holes were way to big, so I wanted to take them in a bit, just ran a quick seam along the top about an inch in), then tied off a loose thread on the hem of another, and the final one was beyond my skills, but I cut off the dangling thread for now. I am not quite ready to get rid of the last shirt, it is one of my favorites, but if the hole gets any bigger I will probably need to.

    Then, I finally got my first pattern chalked onto a handkerchief for my friend’s Yule present. I have three to do total, although one is pretty simple, the other two have the potential to be tricky. This one I tackled today has the most intricate pattern, so I wanted to get it marked on so I can start sewing the outlines. Once I get all the outlines done, the filling in part will be easy (if time consuming). I plan on watching some of my favorite movies while I sew (the ones where I don’t have to actually watch the screen, I can just listen and enjoy).

    I must admit, I smiled every time I read the words Happy Town! I had fun in the meditation, I did my negative stuff in the sack before I got on the train…why take all that junk with me. Through a tunnel that got progressively lighter, until I could see the town. Was greeted by a host of people cheering, “Welcome to Happy Town!”, and my guardian for the challenge (who acted as guide), Wolf. Went exploring, enjoyed the large Yule tree, and met a few people. Had quite an interesting conversation about a project I was working on earlier this morning (extrapolating the Yule festivities into a 12 day long honoring of different deities as well as reflecting back on the months of the past year).

    Made up a casserole for dinner, popped it in the oven, and here I am!

  7. Ok. I’ve been putting off doing this meditation, for the simple fact that both all science fiction tv shows/movies -as well as history!- show us that Utopias usually have a very high price/murky shadow side. So I wasn’t really sure how healthy meditating on a forced, “perfect” half-reality is, and if it would actually plant “blame” seeds, you know…the denial ridden, “be happy! …or else o_O” :p That’s not life, and I believe in a full range of emotions, and know there are people suffering all over the world, that has absolutely *nothing* to do with their lack of ability to “manifest”, or pray correctly. That being said, I made a commitment(to myself) of no “No”s, regarding the Challenge, so I’m going to sit down, right now, and do it as an experiment, keeping in mind the empath mantra of “observe, don’t absorb”. A learning lesson. 🙂

    1. So I moved past the R-E-S-I-S-T-A-N-C-E you could hear in the above post, and the journey to Happy Town went well. I was quite surprised by who greeted me when I got off the train, and the 11minutes I spent there were surprisingly packed full of experiences, that took up several pages of my journal. Was strange after such a positive experience, that I had pretty bad nightmares that night.
