This Week’s Theme:  Clearing Your Mind

Welcome!  Welcome! To this year’s Great Release Program!  Every day you will see a header like the one above — this gives you the information fast.  Today is all about “3’s”!

Today’s Challenges —  Begin your day with the Braucherei Morning cleansing and empowerment exercise (please view previous post), followed by practicing this week’s theme — Clearing Your Mind — where each day you will practice replacing negative thoughts with positive ones.  Think of something you love — and hold onto it as long as you can each and every time a negative, fearful, or worry filled thought crosses your mind.  When you have finished with this week’s theme exercise, move on to today’s fun activities!

Answer These Three Questions —

  1. What is my Release Goal this year?
  2. What is my motivational statement?  You can write any statement you like.  Use it as often as possible.  Once you have your statement written and you are satisfied with it — stand in front of your mirror and repeat the statement to yourself three times.  Yeah, I know, sounds dumb — but, it works!  Look right into the reflection of your eyes and sincerely repeat that statement every morning for the next thirty days.
  3. Where do you want to be in five years?

The Three Coin JarNew This Year!!!The Joy Jar!!! — You will need one, clean, empty jar with a lid.  Decorate it in any way that you like.  You can add herbs, charms, even slips of paper with sigils (if you like) into the jar.  Be creative — Just stick with the theme of JOY!  Each day, put three coins in the jar, saying:

I bring joy into my mind.
I bring joy into my body.
I bring joy into my spirit.
No matter what I need, it will come easily to me!

Each day, add three coins to your Joy Jar! When the Great Release Program is over, donate the coins to your favorite charity -- then begin again!
Each day, add three coins to your Joy Jar! When the Great Release Program is over, donate the coins to your favorite charity — then begin again!  Your Joy Jar can be as simple as this canning jar, or you can choose something far more ornate — it is entirely up to you!

You can use your Joy Jar throughout the program whenever you feel you need a little boost in your life.  Just add a tea candle (as shown) or taper candle in a holder on top of the jar, empowered for your desire.

The 3-Minute Throw!!  Using a watch to keep track of time, see how much clutter your can remove in three minute bursts!  Have a race with your spouse, significant other or your kids!  Who can remove the most junk in the shortest amount of time!  If they complain, explain to them that the Universe can’t allow you to manifest new stuff if the old stuff is in the way!  Practice the 3-Minute Throw several times.

The 3-Minute Clean!!!  Using a watch to keep track of time, see how much you can clean (remove dirt, grime, grease) in three minute bursts!  See who can get surfaces the cleanest in the shortest amount of time!  Remember that dirt and grime hold negativity!  Practice the 3-Minute Clean as many times as you can!

Throw One Thing Away!!!  Yup, no giving or donating this week.  THIS WEEK is all about getting stuck, broken energy out of your living environment.  As long as you throw one thing away EACH day through the end of the program, you will have successfully completed this year’s challenge — all the rest is cake!

3-Minute Deep Breathing!!!  Gotta have it.  The Magick is in the breath!  Close your eyes, breathe deeply.  Pull energy up from the ground, into your feet, up through your heart, into your head, down back into your heart, and out through your hands.  The more you practice the better you get!  Eventually, we’ll add a focus; but, for this week, let’s just practice breathing deeply and running energy through your body.

3-Minute Walk Through!!!  Right before you go to bed, walk through your living environment, taking note of what you feel needs to be moved, removed, enhanced or completed in the coming days.  Write yourself a reminder if you like.  Pick up anything that wandered out of a corner and plopped itself in a space you already cleaned or cleared.  Pay attention to that area — it is magnetized.  Tomorrow, clear that space with a chant, prayer, or incense.  If it continues to “collect” consider how you can use this collection point to your best magickal advantage.

Before You Fall Asleep:  Right before you fall asleep, cast a circle in your mind around your bed.  Finish with:  “Peace with the Gods, Peace With Nature, Peace Within — Only the Good Remains” statement.

Sleep well and see ya in the morning!

Peace with the Gods
Peace with Nature
Peace Within!

Silver RavenWolf – 2015 Great Release Challenge!


futureiswaitingGet 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
Various colored candles.  White is okay.  We’ll use them on different 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 work with colored candles, or incense — that’s fine, too. Whatever spiritual practice that facilitates calm and relaxation within yourself can be used here.  We use 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 okay!  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:  Intone the following chant nine times — if you are super pressed for time — three repetitions will do.

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 Three:  While you are still facing East — intone the Planetary Powers chant  9 times.  Three if you are pressed for time.

The 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 thissecond 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.  If you plan to use a candle each day, hold the candle in your hands as you say the chant, rubbing the candle back and forth between your palms.  As you light the candle, call on the Planetary Power of the day.  For example, if today is Monday, the Planetary Power of the Day is the Moon.  So, you would say:  “By the Power of the Moon, I charge the field within me and around me with success in every way.”  Blow on the candle three times, envisioning that you are blowing success energy into the candle.  Light the candle.

Step Four:  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!

What to do with the water?  If you have nothing to it — you can drink it.  You can give it to your plants, use it to bless objects in the home or work environment, or take it outdoor and pour it on the ground as a libation to the Gods — your choice.

The 2015 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!

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
