Today:  Angels of the New Year!

Congratulations!  By finishing today’s challenge you will have successfully completed this year’s Great Release Program!  Whoo-hoooo!  Good job!  I am so proud of you!  How did the program work for you this year?  Did you find December to be less stressful?  Were you able to meet personal challenges with joy or at least been able to ride through the stress with a calmer attitude?  Do you feel better than when you started?  Some of your success you can see right now; however, during 2014, you may discover hidden achievements as a result of this year’s program.  These will surface as you need them.  Before we continue with our last day together, I would like to thank you for working so hard with me this year!  It has been a pleasure to spend quality time with you.  I realize how busy your schedule is and that reading and following the program is a gift of your time.

Thank you.

Everything has a pattern — some more stable than others.  With each new pattern, Spirit provides an intelligence to watch over it.  Some people see this intelligence in the form of Angels.  Each new year has its own pattern — the highs, the lows, the accomplishments, the sorrows.  Every year has its own energy.  It is up to you to blend what is right for you along your path of enlightenment.  Yesterday we talked about the astrological energies that will be active on New Year’s Eve.  The moon moves into Capricorn in the afternoon (morning for some) giving you a platform of structure, limits and reward.  Capricorn is an excellent sign for Goal Setting and Resolutions!  Today, I would like you to take a small, plain brown paper bag, and write My Wishes and Goals for 2014 on the front of it.  Then, take the time to write out exactly what you would like to accomplish in 2014 on a piece of paper.  Put the paper in the bag.  Next, time to take a Spirit Walk with your bag.  You can go outside, or you can stay inside — the point is that you focus on communing with nature and a higher power as you move around, intuitively placing items in the bag that you feel match your 2014 goals.  You will burn this bag at the stroke of midnight tonight, so don’t put anything in there that you want to keep.  Take your time on your Spirit Walk.  Try not to rush it, if possible — but, if you are pressed, flow with it and do what you can.  The fact that you put any effort at all into the task is what is most important.  What might go in your bag?  Herbs, bits of ribbon, a feather you find…you choose the contents of the bag.  When you have finished with your walk, put a lock of your hair in the bag — this is to tie your mental goals to your physical self, so be sure you really want what you are asking for.  If you have plenty of time, feel free to decorate your bag with colors, sigils, doodles — again, you choose.  Before closing, blow three, deep empowered breaths into the bag, then tie, staple or glue shut.

Sit quietly and rub the bag in your hands, first connecting with nature, and then connecting with Spirit.  Ask the Angels of 2014 to help you.  They are locked and loaded, ready to get to work helping you.  Continue rubbing the bag and thinking about your goals — don’t let negative thoughts wiggle in — keep focused, breathe deeply during the process.  When you are finished, your hands will probably be very hot.  That’s just fine.  Seal your work by drawing an equal-armed cross in the air over the bag.  Set the bag aside.  At the stroke of Midnight tonight — burn the bag.  For those of you living in warmer climes (where the ground is not frozen) you can use an old Braucherei technique of burying the bag in the ground for three days.  On the third day, resurrect the bag, add more energy to it, and then burn it — releasing this power to the universe for the fulfillment of your desires.  Signs from New Year angels include bells ringing at odd times, seeing or receiving new, innovative items, being given a gift with the number of the new year (2014), and baby related items (no kidding).

Today’s Challenge –– Yesterday we worked with the concept of “As Above”.  Today we work with “So Below”.  Clear out junk, dirt, clutter, good stuff from under tables, beds, closet floors, cupboards, etc.  This allows chi (energy) to move freely and removes pockets of negative energy.  What is in the physical, is reflected in the astral.  A dirty, cluttered, stinky, smelly environment allows negativity to grow in the field around you — the field that directly affects your mental and spiritual health.  Empower this field with positive thoughts and cleanly habits and your life will improve exponentially!  Once you have completed this task, walk around your living area and tidy up anything that managed to bounce out of hand in the last week.  Make note of the bigger projects that you didn’t quite finish and set a future goal for yourself to take care of those things.  Finally, take the time to congratulate yourself on a job well done and be sure to give yourself a reward!  Go to the movies, buy that “thing” you always wanted, or promise yourself (and keep it) that from now on you will take time for personal joy rather than ignore your needs.   It is okay to get that special item or enjoy that unique experience — really!  I think I want to go rock climbing with my daughter.

Summary:  The stage is set for an amazing new year!  Over the last thirty-one days we’ve worked with angelic energy in a variety of ways.  We’ve also kept in tune with the daily astrological energies — particularly the moon in the signs and the days of the week.  By knowing what sign the moon is in each day, Spirit has given us a temporary map of the emotional timbre of what we may experience.  The moon in the signs — such a powerful tool — is often ignored by the whole of society; yet — here it is — an amazing head’s up of what type of opportunity we have available to us AND ideas on how to use these energies to improve our lives.  Today we made a simple spell bag using our intuition and a Spirit Walk.  You may wish continue the practice of a Spirit Walk around future new or full moon times.

(1)  Do Your Morning Braucherei Ritual — Remember to Change the Wish Water
(2)  Take one last walk through your environment — make note of your accomplishments and plan to finish those things you couldn’t get to.
(3)  Make a New Year wish bag.
(4)  Take a Spirit Walk.
(5)  Empower your Wish Bag and burn or bury at midnight.
(6)  Throw out at least one thing today (no give-aways).  Today’s toss is very important.
(7)  Do one Mad Minute Exercise.
(8)  Clean out underneath — the “So Below” part of today’s challenge.
(9)  Have a marvelous and wonderful Happy New Year!

I will miss you.  Merry Part Until We Merry Meet Again.
Peace with the Gods
Peace with Nature
Peace Within.
Only the Good Remains.

  1. Good day, I have enjoyed this year Great Release program. I have been on my path for 13 years and feel empowered, intuitive and a great sense of connectedness all in the highest good. I woke up dreaming (listening) to a baby’s lullaby, and reading what you said about angels makes sense. Thank you

  2. This has been wonderful. So glad to have reconnected and to have support and guidance. Definitely feeling happier and more confident! Getting rid of the rubbish unearths the core self that’s been repressed. 2014 will be what we make it & it will be great! Thank You! oxoxox

  3. Hello Silver & all Happy People! Today, I cleaned up my flat. My hands are tired, from cleaning, but I am so happy. I asked me now, who I want to be in my future? Also, I need to write down what need to be done! But this is my first year whit a lot of changes! Thank you for this great program! Happy New Year 2014 to you and your family! And thank you for what you are and thank you for keeping things simple! All the Best to you Silver, Love Kristina

  4. Dear Silver,
    thank you for all your time and your work. It felt realy great doing everyday your exercises. I will miss it and hope to read soon something else from you.

    Merry meet and merry meet again


  5. I feel so much happier and more confident than at the beginning of the Program. In 2013 there were quite a few great experiences that manifested throughout the year, which I know were a result of participating in the challenge last year. I did not get as much done as I would have liked to as it was a generally busy month for me, but for the first time in months I have a clear head and am starting to set myself reasonable goals for 2014 and even better, I feel I have the power and self-confidence to achieve those goals. Thank you so much Silver for this wonderful gift and I wish you and your family health, happiness and blessings for 2014.
    Love, Valerie

  6. Thanks Silver, this programme helped me release all that were no more a part of my life, I feel happier and lighter as a person. Wishing you and your family a very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!

  7. Do we need to do anything special with the paper we wrote the first day with our goal/intention? Thanks again, the program also gave great oportunities to share spirit with my daughters and friends in a very natural flow.

  8. I wanted to say a huge, huge, huge thank you for doing this for and with us!
    Just like last year it’s given me so much and I learned a whole lot about the angels which by the way is handy as I will be in a course that will include things about them as well, so yay… I shall be a little more prepared now. 🙂
    I’ve enjoyed it all, yes, the tidying and throwing away and also the magical aspects and well, everything.
    I could share some with friends which was a bonus.
    And I will be off now to fill my bag and then to celebrate and welcome the new year.
    I wish I could shout a huge thank you right over to you! ;D
    Blessings to you and to *your* new year. 🙂

    1. You are very welcome! I am so glad that the program has been helpful to you! Many, many joyous moments to you in the new year. It was a pleasure working with you!

  9. Dearest Silver, I feel like we are old friends! You have given me love, attention and wonderful advice. I was so looking forward to the Challenge this year. It did not disappoint. This year I felt even more connected and aware of what I was doing. My family jumped in without even being asked. I learned about Angels in a way I never had before. I have a Roman Catholic background, but have been a practicing Wiccan for decades. I literally felt like a sponge – absorbing information, sensations, and responses through out this month! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Heartfelt Blessings are sent to you Lady Silver! …can’t wait until next year 🙂

  10. Thank you Silver for your time, creative energy and knowledge. I did enjoy this years program, I feel “fresher” on inside- and my house looks awesome to boot! Thank you again. ❤

  11. Silver you have done another outstanding job putting this challenge together and I have loved every minute of it. On a few occasions when I came home exhausted after working all day your program enlightened me and put the spark back into my day. I learn many thing during this challenge. Merry Meet and Merry Part and Merry Meet again next year.

  12. Silver,
    I have really enjoyed this and am excited to do it again next year. It helped me to keep the stress down, and enjoy the season. Today I walked the Base’s Duck Pond, it is the closest to nature I could get. I followed the path some, but mostly not. I just meandered picking up little things here and there. I even picked up a few things for an odd box I had bought at a Thrift Store earlier in the year, placed a piece of paper with the things saying, “New Year Spirit Walk, Travis AFB Duck Pond, 2013”. I just love how the universe works with you, approaching the exit of the Park I was thinking, “I would have liked to have found red ribbon or string.” Almost at the entrance I saw some red yarn! I take that as a sign I should start back up crocheting. Also while on my way home I was thinking it would be so cool to find a tuft of rabbit fur. BAM! Out of no where beside the sidewalk was a tuft of rabbit fur. I have grand plans for the coming year, but most of all I just want to continue being happy. It was my main goal and I woke up happy today! Going to celebrate tonight with 2 of My Guys, just a quiet night at home. Hope you have a fabulous New Year!
    With lots of love and blessings,

    1. As I was re-reading over everything I realized I threw something away, well recycled, with importance! I had found an empty jug on my walk, and I properly disposed of it.

  13. Peace and much success to everyone working and/or reading the program, and a thousand blessings to Silver for her time, wisdom, love and inspiration by creating this Great Release. It was my first year and I was so impressed by everyone.

    My wish bag is done and ready to burn baby!

    It was dark when I got off work, so no outdoor communing for me unfortunately.
    I added my wishes and goals on pieces of paper. In the bag I also placed 8 other items….cinnamon, lemon verbena, agrimony, witches grass, hand punched paper hearts, dried lavender and my hair. Even though it was dark, I knew I wanted something from outside. A few pines grow in my complex so I searched for a Pinecone and a few needles from the ground. I found one still sticky with sap and added it to the bag on which I drew the angel Raphael’s sigil (for health) and the rune Feoh for luck and prosperity (there are names listed in with my wishes).

    Happy, happy new year!

  14. I started my morning as usual (for this past month anyway) and pondered my wishes during the morning while continuing to clean, which in my case has revolved around tree damage from the ice storm. I pondered my three wishes and then wrote them later in the day. Just after midnight, I burned my wishes bag as part of a simple New Moon rite.

    Silver, thank you so much for this program. I look forward to next year and hope to carry its lessons throughout the year. Bright blessings!

  15. Did the New Year Wish Bag & burned it promptly at midnight. Felt really excited and hopeful for a very good 2014! Til we merry meet again, brightest blessings to all. :))
