2014 Great Release Program
Day 8 – December 8  2014
by Silver RavenWolf

Every day you must throw something away!
and — this week — Every day you must GIVE one thing away!

Monday! —  Bitty Day
Moon in Cancer — 3rd Quarter (Banishing) and it is a Moon Day!
Home, Family, Compassion, Practice, Protection
Ideal Planetary Hour for Cancer magick — Moon

   Light a dark blue candle to banish negativity!
Hang a pair of child’s scissors, open, over the front door to cut negativity that is trying to sneak in!

This Week’s Theme: Focus

Pick a positive thought.  Hold on to it.  Retain it as long as you can.  Each day your retention period will lengthen.  You only need to practice!
Practice retaining one positive thought three times a day.

Hail and Welcome!

Practice your Braucherei Morning Ritual, and then move on to today’s material!  A few of you have mentioned that you are having problems with the program because others in the home are stubbornly holding on to hoarding stuff, and leaving that stuff where others find it unsightly, or difficult to move around.  This is normal, particularly if this is your first year working the program.  Bringing things into harmony means making adjustments.  Some are easy.  Some?  Not so much.

Stuff, thoughts, and emotions are all tied together.  The program, we’ve found, works best if you can convince your family to participate.  Explain to them that if you fill up the space in your home with old, broken, unsightly stuff — new stuff that they may wish to acquire, can’t get there because the space is full.  You have to make room for the new in order to acquire it.  Use a reward system to get them interested — stars, cupcakes, whatever!!!   If the environment is always dirty, happiness can’t get a foothold — it is just too darned slippery!  The Chi (energy) can’t move through the home, and it is the momentum of flowing Chi that supports joy and clarity of mind. One very easy way to get family members on board is to make it a game, a fun challenge, a building block of delightful energy that invites family harmony through action.

There is a magickal way to get a stubborn pile of crap moving.  Banish it.  Yup!  Cleanse it with holy water and sacred smoke, and command it to move.  No kidding.  Hold your hands over the pile and banish it in your loudest, commanding, authoritative voice.  No, it will not pop off the face of the planet right here and right now; but, what you HAVE done is cut its energy ties to the spot, making it easier to move.  Don’t believe me?  No worries.  Try it and see!  The mess should be gone within the week, 24 hours if you really put the whammy to it.  How will it move?  Someone will move it — hopefully the owner; but, maybe someone else.  On occasion something new and cool enters the environment and demands that spot, making it necessary to remove the debris that’s currently sitting there.   If the banishment doesn’t work the first time, it is because the owner of the mess is clinging to it for dear life.  Banish it again!When you are facing a big mess, keep this in mind:  Take it one item, one mental movement, one day at a time.

Many times we can’t move forward on a project, issue, or circumstance because it seems so mentally huge that we see the bulk and feel immediately defeated.  Rather than trying to swallow the Empire State Building whole, I learned to look at the situation, take a deep breath and think:  What is one thing I can do?  Just one thing.  A small action to get it going.  What is one thing I can do to move forward?  And then, I do that one thing.  When I have that action done, I can do another, and another.  One step at a time.  One piece at a time.  One day at a time.  Eventually, the bulk you initially envisioned whittles away to accomplishment!

One of my favorite things to do when I’m stuck is work with the Runes.  I hold the rune bag in my hands, and I say:  “What is the energy I need to apply to my life today?”  I pull a rune from the bag.  Then, I contemplate that rune and how I can use its energy, its active force, in my life that day.  For example, if I drew the rune Sol or Sowulo –here is what comes to mind:

If I drew this rune in response to my question, I know that I should move forward and concentrate on success.
If I drew this rune in response to my question, I know that I should move forward and concentrate on success.

or, perhaps I drew the rune Laguz… (in keeping with our moon day today)…

Laguz is all about flow.  If I drew this rune today, I would connect with Spirit and touch the "motion" of flow.
Laguz is all about flow. If I drew this rune today, I would connect with Spirit and touch the “motion” of flow and I would rely on my intuition in my work.

Sometimes I will hold the runes and ask:  “What magick can I do to help this person?”  or “What energy should I apply to this problem?”.  Why not try using your favorite divination tool today and, rather than asking about things — ask about energy!

Today’s Main ChallengeToday is Bitty Day!  You are going to walk around your environment and you are going to fix, change, move, put away, throw away, or give away little things.  These things should all be small.  Plugs, perfume bottles, paperclips, memory sticks, little toys, screws, errant socks, bits of paper, advertisements, old coupons, that ribbon off your favorite scarf that you were going to sew back on but didn’t, dish towels, nails… whatever is small that is hogging up where it is currently at.  If you have absolutely no idea what to do with something; but, are worried it is somehow important — put it in a Bitty Box (like a shoe box).  Before the day is over, ask whomever you need to ask about the object (like, “what the heck is this for?”) and if it is necessary, find a place for it.  If not — chuck it.  This way, you have made a step forward in changing the location of the item.  Bitty Things can really mire a living space because you overlook them for a long time, and in that time, they collect negative energy.  Today is the day to look at the little things!

Today’s Secondary ChallengeGive Things Away.  Last week we concentrated on throwing things away, this week we are going to add “giving” to our activities.  Walk through the house and start a “giving” box that you will absolutely give away by this coming Saturday.  If you can give it away today — all the better!  We don’t want to create clutter!  It is important to cleanse these items before we give them away.  In this way you remove all negativity AND all track-backs to your energy.  Wash the clothes, wipe down the small appliances or toys with disinfectant, etc., then cleans them ritually with holy water or burning sage or sweet grass.

  1. Thank you for being real deal there are so many bad energy coming from some of my followers I’ve chosen not real just looking for money. Thank you for your gift. Blessed Be

  2. my problem is my 79yare old mother fight me on it it get ugly to the pite where it hard for to do more they the morning ritual

    1. Been there. Had to deal with that. I absolutely understand. You are actually dealing with role reversal — which is common when the child becomes an adult and becomes responsible for the parent. If you come to terms with this within yourself first, the changes will be easier. You might want to do a little surfing on the net or in the bookstore about role reversal, and how to make it emotionally easier.

  3. Thank you so much for addressing the stubborn hoarder issue! I really believe that what I think the Universe creates, so since I’ve tried everything else, I’m going to banish, banish, banish in 3 separate areas and then let the Powers that be take care of it, while I participate with the rest of the program. I’ll let you know what happens! Thanks again

    1. I will be very interested to hear! If nothing moves right away — keep banishing — say to yourself, who is the boss here? Me or this stuff? You are. Keep at it.

  4. Extremly enjoying the Great Relaese Program. I have cleaned things that have been sitting waiting for me to do. Cleaned the house. Can’t do all challenges everyday. Not letting it put negativity in my life tho. I do it in my mind…Thanks for getting me started Silver.
    Blessed Be

  5. Had a strange day. Couldn’t really get started. Missed the morning ritual, fell into grouchiness but was OK again by mid afternoon. Threw 2 things away and did the Jupiter sigil working which I had been putting off since Thursday. Reason why? I was afraid to have a go at drawing the Jupiter sigil. I did try it and once I broke it down into little pieces it was remarkably easy. So managed to have a good day after all.

  6. Just realised this post was meant for yesterday!! Half asleep this morning. Time to start a better day today.

  7. Funny thing happened I never knew it but I sort of started this program without knowing it in November already by cleaning and chucking old stuff and donanting old toys to charity, it only struck me today. I am halfway there and I feel more organised and have more life energy and my family doesn’t fight so much anymore. Realy inspirational and helpfull. Thanx from autumn al the way from south africa

  8. My husband is the crap king. He would be on hoarders if not for me! I’m banishing a lot of his stuff. I’ve been giving away stuff since day 1 because it was still but not for me. I guess I’m combining the goals!

  9. Thank you for the banishing idea I found that even after you clear and banish that some areas somehow become filled again, after hoarder actives have happened in the space , Even after the hoarder not around, it like a repeating energy wave so off to banish banish and banish

  10. My trash bin is filled to the top. My recycling bin is too! Made three trips to donate usable stuff last week. This is just what I needed. I gave this a try last year, and I let all the stuff of life get in the way of completing the whole program. I am determined to do the entire thing this year. So far, so great! It is also enormously helpful in getting me in front of my alter more…I have been slacking on that too. Thank you for the motivation Silver!

  11. I’m really getting a lot of of the program this year Silver! It’s the first year I’ve been able to accomplish the challenges each day. Even the family is getting involved.
    Thanks for your service!

      1. Yes it was! Baked By Dan is marching along, its one of the busiest times of year. Checkout my Facebook page!
        I’m always looking for new ways to incorporate magick and spirituality into my overall plan for business success and these energy moving techniques seem to be helping!

  12. Oh this fit in so well with today… I was packing up parcels for Yule (to put in the mail) and I already had one book that I would pass on as a gift and then went through my stash and found another two: one crafting book which is great but the type of stuff I wouldn’t probably make (simply lacking time for that as well as all the other things I already do) – yet I knew exactly the perfect person who’d love this book! The other is a small art book which will travel to someone else’s home.
    So I end up giving 3 things away, two of them being surprise gifts for Yule.
    And I’m soooo happy about that because I’m fairly sure those surprises will make my friends’ day. 😀 YAY!!!

  13. Well, I did throw an old shirt away and sorted through some itty, bitty stuff for awhile. Got a bit more organizing done. Then I was called to help my elderly (89) mother decorate her kitchen with garland on shelves up near the ceiling. She is very spry, but lives alone, and we really don’t want her climbing around. So, the only thing I ‘gave away’ today was my time, patience and climbing ability to help Mom. I guess that counts for something! I love doing the morning ritual. It really seems to energize my day!

  14. I have no idea where my post went from today. So re-posting in the right day. Feeling a bit turned inside out right now so burning the zodiac candle for some emotional clarity.
    Took sometime to rest tonight and do an angel mediation. Onward and upward. Jennifer

    1. lol — I get confused on the days while writing the program; because, I write a day ahead. It is a good way to keep the program fresh and on target; but, I must confess, sometimes I get my days totally mixed up. It all works out in the end. 🙂

  15. You mentioned something in today’s post that I had never thought about before…energy tracking back to you on items that are given away without being cleansed first. A simple thing that can have far reaching effects. Now that is something to think about! As always You are amazing 🙂

  16. Ok, Lady Silver!! I performed a miracle today. All thanks to your “stubborn pile of crap” energy working. Here is the back story. We live in a small house, tiny in fact. We moved from a 2600 square door two story house to a 600 square foot hunting cabin in the country. It was a jarring experience, and one where I had to downsize dramatically. One thing I could not do without, however was all my magickal supplies and crafting supplies. So I made a “magick corner” in the living room. It was a 9 x 9 space that had all my goodies. Problem is that it was never organized and acted like a mega magnet for all kinds of things. I couldn’t even walk in the space. So, to remedy the situation I bought a 12 x 16 cook shed about 4 months ago with the idea of creating a all my own that would free up space in our home and be big enough for me to organize it all. So for this years challenge my plan was to gradually move it all over to the shed. This morning, I did the working you described involving cutting the energetic threads and simply banishing all the stuff in that corner. And 12 hours later, the corner is completely empty, and all my magickal and crafting supplies are organized in my shed!!!!! What started out as a little working snow balled into a full fledge war on all the junk that’s been piling up for 5 years. 😊 I’m so happy, and tired I could cry! Thank you for your inspiration, and now I have the next 22 days to do some cleaning in other areas of my house. I feel a sense of relief and great accomplishment tonite!! Much gratitude for you and your fabulous tips and words of inspiration!!

  17. I’ve missed some stars because I’ve had to make some substitutions…other projects are taking the lead…but still doing well! Happy to have this program…made my birthday all the brighter!

  18. The 2nd challenge – to give away…. Well I decided to get rid of the holiday ornaments I no longer use and my plans were to drop them off at the Salvation Army. Then I read something on another site I am on ….

    “I have a huge request. my cousins friend had a house fire a few days ago and lost everything. she is in need of whatever we can spare. she has an 8 year old daughter so any girl clothes, mattress for a twin bed. I’m giving them a twin bed frame. I don’t have a mattress for it. They really need a fridge. also for the holiday any used girl toys an 8 year old would like and if anyone has a fake tree they don’t want anymore. Let me know in message. we will be at church tomorrow too. thanks a ton.”

    Perfect: someone already donated a Xmas tree – so this is where my ornaments will be going. They are all cleaned and ready to help this person in need have a wonderful holiday knowing that people care.

    1. Just read your comment – and this is so great to hear! Of course not that this happened to them, but what perfect constellation that you’ve got something they’ll surely cherish. I hope people will consider helping them. So many of us have things at home that are unused and would be treasure to others. 😀
