Each day practice holding one single positive thought for as long as you can three times each day.

REWARD DAY!  Count your stars and give yourself a special treat!

Hail and Welcome!

The holidays can be such a stressful time, and it seems that people often act out in negative ways — heightening the misery!  When the Moon is in Cancer, emotions are usually at the core of our activities.  Individuals focus on hearth and home, awareness of their needs, compassion, sympathy, understanding and safety.  Moon in Cancer is a good time for working magicks of family harmony, protection, self-love, adjusting our self-esteem, and emotional security.  Negative behavior that can be evident during this time includes unnatural fear, narrow mindedness, mood swings, dreaming to avoid reality and emotional blackmail.  This year we have a Uranus in Aries and a Pluto in Capricorn square coming up at the end of the week (the sixth in the series due to retrograde motion) which can add a bit of a twist to your activities all week long, touching each moon window with electric power.  A square means we have to adjust, and situations may arise between now and next Sunday (if they haven’t already) where new versus old grinds together encouraging changes for the better.  If you have not already begun this change voluntarily, the universe will help you along!  This “change” and encouragement to “adjust” has been with all of us for quite some time and began in June of 2012.  Think back to determine where you have made the most changes (voluntarily or forced) since that time.  After next Sunday, Uranus and Pluto have one more go of it — on 16 March 2015, where pressure is exerted between the old and the new in your life.

In keeping with the idea of change (because that is what this program is all about) for the better, today’s main challenge is with water (Moon in Cancer).

Main Challenge:  Wash all the floors and surfaces (that can safely come in contact with water) with empowered, consecrated water.  No, you do not have to wash the carpets unless you feel REALLY motivated.  Did you ever think what it would be like if you could actually “see” emotional dirt?  Like if it was puke purple, or pea green, or dirty orange film on stuff?  Change is easier if your environment is clean (no kidding).  Let’s move smoothly into super success, rather than tripping over the gunk to get there.

What can you add to the water so that you get more bang for each mop stroke?  Here’s a list of what you may choose to add to your wash water:

Basil — for harmony and blending herbs together
Orange or Lemon Peel — great for banishing and replacing the void with attraction energy
Rosemary — wonderful for banishing and promotes healing

As you wash the floors and surfaces, you may with to use this Braucherei Charm:

Evil be gone
Do not return
The Horse has run off
And the Bridges are burned!*

Shout it, yell it, stomp your feet!  Let that negative energy know who is boss!  You!  Toss the wash water out (don’t let it sit around in the bucket).

Secondary Challenge:  New Year’s Transformation and Home Protection Packet.

In Braucherei, herbs are often placed in small cloth packets, and are either carried or worn  on one’s person; or, placed in a specific area of the home.  Sometimes the packets are actually sewn into clothing and bedding.  Quilt designs that incorporate runes help to boost the power of the packet.

Bow Tie Quilt Block incorporates several runes.

The New Year’s Transformation and Home Protection Packet includes:

Holly Leaves— to guard and protect the home from negativity and evil spirits
Ivy — to guard against negativity and disaster
Mistletoe Root— to boost the power of Holly and Ivy, and used for protection against disease

Draw or print out the above design.  Color as you desire.  Write all the names of the individuals living in your home on the back of the design, as well as the physical address of the home.  Wrap nine leaves of holly with nine leaves of Ivy  sprinkled with mistletoe root in the design.  Fold the paper toward you as you create the packet.  Place the paper packet in a piece of white cloth.  Fold the cloth as you did the paper.  Tie tightly closed with red thread or yarn.  Empower for household protection, positive transformation and good luck in the coming New Year by running energy into the packet and blowing on it softly.  Command the packet to work for you.  Remember to seal it with an equal-armed cross traced in the air over top three times.   Place the packet somewhere in the center of your home, where it will not be disturbed.  Ivy, Holly and Mistletoe Root can be toxic to dogs, cats, and horses — so be sure to put the packet where it won’t be of interest to a curious pet.  If you are worried about someone or something in the home ingesting your packet, change the ingredients to food safe herbals.

    1. Thank you for another great year of the release program! I got 80% of the floors done yesterday, and am finishing them up today! I’d say 6 3 minutes cleaning sprees, and quite a few trash bags are now in the garbage while de-cluttering.

      xo and thank you, you are very much appreciated! ❤

  1. Thank you! I am getting a bit overwhelmed. Once I began chucking stuff yesterday, there was no stopping me! I have piles of “onesie” socks that I got out of drawers, mending piles I am going through, etc. I want to keep up, but can I do each “day” for two days? 🙂
    Also, holly will be harder for me to find here. Any alternatives I can use?

    1. Do what you can — pace yourself, no worries. You can substitute any herb you like. Check out what is in your kitchen cabinet, or look outside — you may be able to find exactly what you need.

      1. Thank you :). I woke up this morning at 3:30 am with an urge to clean the kitchen floor. I then wiped the whole house, chanting :).
        Making my home packet today after I go on a nice long walk at the river. Who knows what I will find there!

  2. Hello silver! Thank you for the program! I have been trying. Its been challenging. And I do what I can. I live in south africa, and finding some of the ingredients are difficult to find. Are there replacements for Holly, mistletoe and ivy. BB

  3. Great start for my morning. Candle burning, saged the house until tonight when I can clean more thoroughly, and thought pattern set for the day!

  4. Status report: moved out a giant tv that no longer works last night, easily and effortlessly. Everyone here in the house in contributing (this was NOT the case last year). We have come a long way as a family in the past year. Today working with water to pressure clean the back porch. Love and light, Jennifer

  5. I’m finding this program very interesting and I seem to be gaining positive energy from it, but all of the cleaning and tossing out of rubbish and especially the nightly walk through, has brought my attention back around to something that makes me unhappy. I have a beautiful one level home with a large great room right in the center that I have wanted to clean and reorganize for quite some time. My husband has chosen to use part of the space for our “boat stuff” and it makes the whole space look like a ‘junk’ room. He refuses to change it and I get so annoyed with it that I must choose to ignore it or wage war constantly about it, (not worth it), as we get along well in every other way. Should I just continue to ignore this and focus on my own stuff in my personal ‘den’ space? I really enjoy my time in there, but the idea of doing that seems wrong somehow? HELP!!!

    1. The line “he refuses to change it”. Think about why. Think laterally. Our family talked about the release program as we did it over the years. Thoughts are linked to stuff. Ideas are linked to stuff. Emotions are linked to stuff. In this case, why does he want the “stuff” sitting exactly there — and not some where else?

      1. Had a similar situation last year with my fiance and a dirty gross rug he didn’t want to pitch. This year we purposely created a space for him and his stuff that is his own. Is there another, more functional area for his stuff can go?

        Another thought, it is interesting that it is in the middle of the living room. Which to me screams, this is really important to me…

  6. Here we go! *Cracks knuckles* Started off the day with my ritual, and then when that was complete it was GAME ON! I whipped up a huge batch of consecrated water, adding the herbs/stuff listed and even added the whole batch of the Holy Water I made last night. The attack on the house began! Everything that could get cleaned, got cleaned. The floors, the doors, the mirrors, sinks, counters, toilets, the front door, the back door, nothing was sacred… or, well, maybe it’s just MORE sacred! *Pant pant* After that I had a little fun dance time in the living room, shouting and dancing and chanting and even the DOG got in on it! Needed a nice hot shower after that, just to get all the house gunk off and cleanse myself a bit and then OUT went all the used water, out the back door. Out with the old, in with the new! Sometimes, it’s actually fun to clean! ❤

  7. I have so much going on this year, it is a bit of a challenge to do the daily tasks- but I have! Interestingly enough, there is not a lot to toss. Apparently I kept tossing things since last years GRP and have avoided buying crap- who knew? But I am finding stuff..old furniture polish- gone! etc. I am having a blast. Today I will get my daughter involved with the floor empowerment/cleaning- she will like that.

  8. Involved the kids to clean up fot 10 minutes. This was good. But I felt tired from sll the cleaning, I started already 3 weeks ago. Now I am tired of cleaning, but of course I did today as well. Went with my mom to the X-Mas market and had some warm Caipirinha so my ironing in the eveninv will run easily 😉

  9. Oh forgot to mention that I did the Braucherei combined with a magic ritual in the morning. And the aqua candle still burns. Focus on positive thoughts the whole day. Mainfocus to get things completely finished.

  10. i have to say, we started a week early, we had to clean out our garage to get out 65 Belair into it! Which it is in there.!! I did have to combine a few days due to my kids being sick., yesterday I decided to clean and organize my entire kitchen and I am totally happy with it!! I feel so much better! Today I am cleaning all the floors and deep cleaning my boy’s rooms. I am not exactly doing the 3 minute thing because I gave decided to deep clean rooms that really need it and depress me to no end.

  11. The candle burned well, the bundle’s hung up in the living room. Such good work done! Thank you so much! 😀

  12. It’s so funny that washing floors and surfaces is part of today’s challenge. I had a dream last night (or it was probably memory) about washing the doors with an empowered wash…I think it may have been part of last year’s challenge ( which worked out really great). I took care of it without yet reading the post…then followed up with “other surfaces”.

    I also found something I didn’t want to trash and thought how “coincidental” (I believe things happen for a reason actually) that giving away is a task for tomorrow…

    I love the “lightness” I’m feeling…it literally feels “lighter” (less heavy) in my house. It was feeling stagnant for a while.

    1. hallowedevenin I also have flash backs of previous challenges – I find myself incorporating some of them in this years tasks

      1. So glad I’m not alone…lol. Just goes to show what a positive impression the program/ Silver’s teaching has had on us.

  13. Silver, thank you for your kind words and latitude for following this program. Not racking up the stars but proud to say I pulled up/threw out carpeting from the 80’s. Gnarly! This was a few weeks ago, but counting it anyways! The shift in the home is amazing!

  14. Got a late start today with the floor cleansing ritual, but it’s done now, rather late than never. The chant got stuck in my head……. 😀 until I took a cleansing shower with my Juniper and Sage Soap.

  15. Today’s challenge was a really slow go – got home past 2:30 am after attending a Midnight Meditation. That definitely was way past my normal bedtime. LOL. I did the 3 minute clean but trust me there was NO dash involved. LOL. Took a while to figure out some alternatives for herbs because I did not have some you stated but all is good – I completed everything.
    I also used a white envelope instead of a white cloth – you can check it out with my link below
    Will be in bed early tonight for sure. 🙂

  16. I would like to create the transformation and home protection packet. I have 2 Oak trees that give me mistletoe every year, but the ‘roots’ are embedded in the branch of the tree. I am only ever able to cut it off at the base. Is it alright to use mistletoe stem or leaves?
