Silver RavenWolf’s 2013 Great Release Program — A Free 30-day enchanting experience!

Get ready for this year’s Magickal Release Program — 30 days of helpful tips, guidelines, and creative ways to get rid of the junk, clutter, negativity and unhappiness in your life!  Each day we will work on a new challenge, dancing our way to a delightful new you!  Don’t miss this once-a-year holiday treat that begins on 1 December and ends on the 31st.   Best of all?  Its FREE!  You can do it!

What You Will Need to Work Through the Program:

Courage
Willpower
An Open Mind
Cleaning Supplies
A Goal — something you wish to work on this year — it can be anything you desire
White Tea Candles (if you like working with candles).  We’ll use them on various occasions.
A place to donate things you no longer need
A ritual cup (something you can put water in)

The Basic Ritual

The Great Release Program is based on a short, daily Braucherei ritual designed to bring blessings and enchantment into your life each and every day.  By practicing this Five Minute Braucherei ritual each morning upon rising (whether you are first, second or third shift — when you wake up is fine) you will have a better grip on the day.  The practice takes about seven (7) days to set in (you might see small changes in your life right away); and about 30 days to bring about greater change.  If you are ready to take charge of your life, let go of the crap, and accept the abundance of the world around you, then this is the ritual for you!

Tools: You don’t need any except your mind.  However, if you would like to light a white candle, or incense — that’s fine, too. Whatever spiritual practice that facilitates calm and relaxation within yourself can be used here.  This year I have added a cup of water that you will change and empower each day.  Spring water is great, tap water is fine.

Preparation:  Find a place where you will not be disturbed.  As the ritual only takes about five minutes, you won’t need to lock yourself in the attic.  I know, though, what it is like to be a busy person with family members assuming its okay to interrupt you just-any-old-time.  So!  If the only place you can find peace is the bathroom while taking your morning shower — that’s fine.  Just lock the door.  The beauty about Braucherei is that you whisper instead of speaking in a normal voice.  With the water running?  No one will hear you.

Let’s go through the ritual so you understand exactly what you are doing.  The first chant is a general blessing charm that is quite old, and recited while facing east.  You can use hand motions (or not) while intoning the charm.  Speak slowly, with feeling and with a sense of grace.  You are doing a spiritual thing — it is okay to open up and accept those energies.   

Step One:  Fill your clean ritual goblet with water.  Set aside.  Face East.  Take three, deep, cleansing breaths.  Draw energy up from the ground to the top of your head, and expel that energy with your breath into your hands.  Take a second breath, drawing energy from the sky, and expel that energy with your breath into your hands.  Take a third breath, drawing energy into your heart chakra, and then expel that energy into your hands.

Step Two:  If you are one of my Braucherei students, please do the Field of Potential Exercise (you can read about my Braucherei course at http://www.crowcrossroads.etsy.com).

Step Three:  Intone the following chant nine times —

Eastwards I stand
For favors I pray
From Goddess Divine
And Lord of the Day
Earth lends Her power
And breath sends the spell
Days end will reveal
That all will be well.

Let’s quickly cover what this chant means and exactly what you are calling.  Eastwards I stand (the place of beginnings and the power of the sun) for favors I pray (you are asking for all the good stuff of this world and all others).  From Goddess Divine (feminine deity, crone/mother energy, moon energy) and the Lord of the Day (male divine, sage/father energy, the sun AND the planet that rules the day).  Together the two deities make One — the Balance.  Earth lends Her power (the spirits of nature, the elements, that which is physical) and breath sends the spell (holy breath, Spirit, and your effort).  Days end will reveal that all will be well.  (You are agreeing that my the end of the day, no matter what, you will accept the favors given and be thankful for them.)  This chant is to be said nine (9) times, slowly, with feeling, and experiencing what you are saying deep within yourself.

Step Four:  While you are still facing East — intone the following chant 9 times.

The second chant the Seven Planetary Powers, is extremely simple.  First, you intone the name of the day you are experiencing, for example Tuesday, and then follow through with the rest of the chant.  Here is the chant:

Tuesday, Lord of the Day
Bring me Good Fortune in Every Way!

Here are those daily planets (the Lords of the Day) in case you are new or have forgotten:

Monday — Moon
Tuesday — Mars
Wednesday — Mercury
Thursday — Jupiter
Friday — Venus
Saturday — Saturn
Sunday — Sun

Although very easy, this is a powerful chant.  You are asking the planetary energies of the day to tune into your life and you are agreeing that you will accept the flow of what you have asked for — in this example — Good Fortune.  You can change this chant in to match what you need.  Let’s say you are working on a chronic illness, then you might say:

Tuesday, Lord of the Day
Bring me Good Health in Every Way!

Or, let’s say you are just so stressed out lately:

Wednesday, Lord of the Day
Bring me sweet peace in Every Way!

Like the first chant — take your time.  Say it slowly and with confidence.  Know in your heart that what you have asked for, you will receive.  Remember, that this second chant changes with the day.  If today is Monday, then you intone — Monday, Lord of the Day!  As you speak, reach out and connect with the ‘Lord’ of the day.   Repeat this chant nine (9) times.  If you enjoy candle burning rituals, you can burn a small candle (chime or tea candle) that is the color of the Lord of the Day.  Colors vary in ritual traditions.  Here is a list, if you need an idea of color associations:

Monday — Light Blue, Silver
Tuesday — Red, Yellow, or Gold
Wednesday — Dark Blue, Silver
Thursday — Purple, Blue or Red
Friday — Green or Pink
Saturday — Brown, Gray or Black
Sunday — Gold, Yellow or Orange

White is a basic go-to color, and can be used for any practice in this program, including lighting the way for the Lord of the Day.

Step Five:  End your ritual with a sentence that focuses on your special goal that is repeated three times.   The most important words in this statement?  “I know”.   You can say a general statement, or one that is very specific.  For example:

“I know that I will meet all my goals in this thirty-day period.” or…

“I know I will find a solution to…” (and fill in the blank).

Then, blow softly across the top of the water in the ritual cup.  You are infusing the water with your wish.  Each and every day you will change this water before you do your ritual.

Complete your ritual with this statement (or one like it that you prefer)

Only the Good Remains
Peace with the Gods
Peace with Nature
Peace Within.
So Be It!

That’s all there is to it.  After you finish simply draw an equal-armed cross over the water to seal the working.  At the end of the day, give thanks to Spirit and the Lord of the Day for the favors you have received.  Sometimes, we are so busy during the day, we don’t realize that we’ve been given a gift if we don’t stop and think about what happened to us, or what we really spent our time on.  By concluding the working by giving thanks, you allow yourself time to review your experiences.  Be careful not to dwell on negative situations, even though they occurred to teach us something.  Although that kind of review is good and necessary, it isn’t a part of this particular working, which is designed to teach you and continue to aid you in drawing positive energies toward you.  Release the negative — welcome the future!  Leave bitter behind, so that you can be better!

The 2013 Program

The theme of the Release Program each year is to get rid of the negativity in our lives — to release what no longer supports our goals.  This release includes physical, mental, and spiritual things, feelings, or choices that are no longer working for you.  The program works incredibly well if your partner, husband, wife, and/or family members work right along with you.  My family does the program, too!  Every year I change the challenges slightly so that you can enjoy new material.  Part of the fun of the program is that you don’t know what I’ll have you working on next!  Each day is a surprise.  If you can’t get everything done in a particular challenge?  No worries.  Do one thing — just one thing per day.  If you can do it all?  AWESOME!  If not, don’t give yourself a bad time — do what you can.  As long as you do something?  You’re golden!

You Want to Start Early?  Can’t wait for December first?  Great!  For the next few days, consider carefully what you primary goal is going to be for this year!  I’m looking forward to seeing old friends (those who have done the program before) and new friends!  Please feel free to post your comments throughout the program.  We are a magickal village and every post is important and unique.

Are you ready?  I know I am!  I’m super excited about this year’s program!  Please join me this year!  My greatest desire is that your dreams come true!  Please feel free to blog or tweet about the program — the more the merrier!

In service

  1. I’m hoping to keep up this year! Working in a retail Pharmacy, things are hectic and usually I have to work overtime…. I want to though! Blessed be, Silver and Thank you for sharing this again~

  2. I’m excited for this! Last year it felt sooo over whelming but today reading through it, it doesn’t feel scary at all. Perhaps it’s a sign I’m ready?

  3. I’m going to get shot for this comment but I’m going to comment anyway. I have been looking at the calendar and dreading December 1 because I knew what was coming, The Great Release Program. I have been looking around my home sighing because I am going to have all this cleaning to do. So dreading that. Of course I am going to participate. I always get value from your postings and projects, but I just dread the work to get to my goal. Sorry for this comment but it is kind of a release so that I can participate in the release program.

  4. I was just thinking about this today and said how I am excited & can’t wait to do it again this year. Look forward to it! Blessings & Thank You!

  5. Well lets see if i can get thru the whole thing this year..I thought it was going to be easy last year. Apparently not… funny thing is.. I got thru all the hard stuff, with the cleaning and organizing etc. .. But then i got stuck around the 20th days… with the small projects.. like just cleaning out the car or taking stuff to good will etc… I dunno why.. i reminded myself to do it.. but then i kind of just lost track or got lazy or something.. and then forgot about everything after that! BLAH! So we try try again.. Hopefully this year I’ll be able to make it the whole way thru!!!

  6. I have been waiting for this time of year to roll around again. Last year was the first time I participated, and it really changed my perceptions about myself and others. Thank you so much Silver for doing this!

  7. I’ve tried doing the program in the years before and something always gets thrown in my path (like the year I had a month long stomach virus that kept me running for the bathroom). But as the old saying goes “If at first you don’t succeed; try, try again.” So we try again! Blessed Be!

  8. Excellent Silver 🙂

    This was just what I needed on a cold gloomy day, feeling disheartened with where I currently am in life.

    I am looking forward to getting started with it!

  9. Thank you for your work to put this together and share it without people paying for it. This will be my third year- ya know my “empty drawer” from last year remained empty and UNOPENED this whole time! Kids thought I was nuts a couple time when they went to open and.. well you can imagine. =) Thank you again.

  10. Thank you for all the beautiful energy and intention that you put into creating and sharing this. This will be my very first ever Great Release experience. I’m a little nervous – can I follow through? Will I actually release anything? Will the Planetary Powers and Lord of the Day grow weary of my plight? But I’m also very excited – YAY! Focused intention and purpose to shake things up and revitalize my life and home. Let’s go!

  11. I have a question already! I am still working through Lesson One. Diligently but slowly, all is well. I am looking for the Field of Potential so I have now purchased Lesson Two and Three. Am I looking for it in the right place? Cathy

  12. I’ve been looking forward to this! Thank you for doing it for another year! I can’t wait to get started!

  13. One of my goals is to actually complete the month! I’ve tried the last few years and each year I allowed something to knock me off my rhythm. So, this time my goal is to accomplish one thing, no matter how big or small, everyday. Thank you for another challenge!

  14. Each year I have arrived late and didn’t get thru it all but this year I’m early so just maybe… thank you Silver for doing this

  15. So excited! Been waiting for the program to roll around. I moved this summer and have some things to release still! I knew The Great Release Program would be just the motivation I needed to get to the next level in my new space. Thanks Silver Let’s do it again!

  16. My first year, and I am very excited to begin tomorrow! Thank you for such a great gift Silver!

      1. Is this where to ask a question?
        What do we do with our ritual water after it has been enchanted with my wish?
        How does The Lord of the day (planets) correspond to the chant?

        Thank you!! )O(

      2. Pour the water outside the next morning — or, you can water a plant. The Lord of the Day chant is changed each day to match the day. It honors the day itself.

  17. Silver, I do not know how I accidentally posted a pingback here, I am sorry. However, I am excited about joining you for yet another year. Blessings to you and your family.

  18. This is the first year that I am going to do this program. It is a gift I think I have found and need. I am very busy and have a very hard time finding time to work on my spiritual self and I know it is something I need right now. Thank you for the program.

  19. I’m excited and nervous to be doing the Release Program (for the first time). As Silver suggested, if I’m not able to complete everything each day, I will be sure to do at least one thing per day.

    Silver, thank you for creating this and offering this great chance for us to “release” and move forward in a positive way/opening or expanding the “sea of potential” in each of us.

  20. I am so excited! I know there are going to be all kinds of good things coming out of this years challenge! This is my third year and it’s no different, I feel like a kid a Christmas opening a big, shiny gift! Thank you for the program Silver! Brightest Blessings to you and all who enjoy this journey with us!

  21. I am excited….worked on this last year, made it to about day 23 or so, but then was just worn out, so going to go a bit easier this year and try to make it the whole way!

    In the opening ritual, do we do something with the glass of water after charging it?

  22. Im new to the program this year. Im a big fan of your books. Im working thru the hedgewitch book for about two years now. I intend to finish, but i got stuck on the rite of metal. I want to get peace out of this journey. I struggle with peace within and without. Thanks so much.

  23. I am here to dedicate this next 30 days of change for the better! Blessings to you Silver!
