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!

  1. Yeah! I am so happy! This is my 3rd year doing this! I can proudly say, that I involved the Braucherei Morningtitual mostly dayli into my live. I do it mostly while I am driving to work. This program really changed my live! From total mess to a normal person. In the past I selected everything. But now I throw away things dvery day. Its better & better every day. Thank you Silver for sharing this with us. Blessed be! Kristina

  2. Merry Meet! Im very excited and happy the releasing program is here again. I love this and really look forward to it. Although its hard to complete everything i try my best and this year I’m working on being happy with what i can achieve each day without putting extra pressure on myself to complete everything. Ive been doing a lot of purging since September but i know theres always more. Its truly amazing how we can do this and every year there is more clearing to do. Many thanks Siver! Im very happy this is on a blog as i even removed myself from social sites on the internet to give myself more peace and time that I’m not distracted LOL.

    Blessings to all. Happy releasing!


  3. Every year I get more and more excited about this program, and the “sea of potential” that lies within it. I’m looking forward to releasing all that does not serve my highest good! Blessings and Love, Serafine Borealis~

  4. Merry Meet, I have been doing the Morning Braucherei Prayer every morning, with amazing results. I am excited to get started with this years Great Release Program. This will be my first year to do this, but know that more excitement and joy is to come into my life. Blessed Be, Ciela SnowOwl.

  5. This is my 3rd year of doing the Release Ritual, and I love them! I have been doing the morning ritual each day for almost 2 years, so I have it completely memorized! Thank you for sharing these and allowing me to have more control in my life!

  6. Merry meet I am so excited to be part of this program. This year will be a little more challenging for me since I am living in a small 300 sq ft studio. We are suppose to hopefully move into a 2 bedroom house by the he end of the month. This will be a very hard winter solstice for me since I won’t be doing a lot of our traditional celebrations. So I am glad to be doing this program with my fellow sisters and brothers.
    Thank you Silver for this wonderful program.
    Blessings to all and happy releasing

    1. While reading your post the thoughts came to me that this year is a super opportunity for you. Make new traditions for yourself and your family and everything will glow with divine light that you never thought possible.

  7. Thank you Silver !! So glad to that you are running the program again. I have taken part in most of the Release programs in the last few years and last years made such a difference to my life. i went from mess and distress to happiness and hope. However the last few months things are starting to get mega stuck again so this is what I have been dreaming about for the last month! Did a lot of work on my own during the year but the group energy seems to make things alot easier .

    1. Yes, we are very blessed with all the people who work through the program together, and post how they are doing. I can not imagine the program without any one of you! You all make it “go!”

  8. This is my second time, but it’s the first time that I made it for the first day. I’m super excited for this year. This year has been a real struggle for me emotionally and I need to get rid of the residual negativity that has been clinging to me.

  9. Dove in head first, and my 3 minute clean/throw ended up being a ‘clean and organize my desk’ day instead 😛 I never realized how many open journals I have going! Definitely have more work on the organization front, but it is better than it was this morning (and tons less dusty)

  10. I was so much looking forward to this 😀
    We’re a mother and daughter combo doing this, so can basically hype each other up about the 3 minutes challenges. It’s something like… *hey, what are you doing running around like crazy?* – *3 minutes challenge, mum!* And off she races too. LOL

    I love the Joy Jar idea – I think I will keep on doing this during the next months, too.

    And I happily got rid off a small lamp that had been lurking around, no use for anyone (not even to give it on, really). So off you go! 🙂

    Thank you so much for doing this for and with us. 🙂

    Blessings from Switzerland

  11. You are awesome Silver. I’ve been using your morning Braucherei Prayer as part of my morning devotional for several years. It’s helped to move my life in positive ways. So excited to be doing program again. Thank you for making it possible!

  12. What a wonderful first day! I’ve regained the excitement I had during my first GRC, so more has been accomplished today than in the last year! Yeah, I know. Horrid year. However, I am still going and loving every moment.

    I love, love, LOVE The Joy Jar!

    Anyhow, I want to let you all know just how much this program can change one’s life and practice. Challenge yourself! You can do it! When one can feel the flow of positive energy flowing freely… Well, just trust me.

    In addition, if one has roots in Voudon or even Hoodoo, Granny Magick will feel amazing. Such great power in simplistic whispers.

    Again, thank you for being many of our magickal mothers, Silver. My insatiable curiosity and heightened senses led me on an unfulfilling, damaging, religious quest at a very young age. However, it also led me to you 18 years ago when I actually was a “Teen Witch” with fears you calmed easily hence my motherly reference.

    May you be well and thrive beautifully, Silver.

    1. Thank you so much for your post! I always ask myself — go to the basic because there is so much power there! You were so kind to share. Thank you! Thank you!

  13. As I was working my way down the 3’s, I knew my “throwaway” would be paper. My goal is to be clutter free by the end of this Release, to let in space for the New, and paper is definitely making babies in this house.
    In my pile was a check, one that I have had for a few weeks. I have not cashed it, because I was torn. I was torn between: We really need the money AND I don’t like where this money is coming from.
    Before I went in my studio, I breathed deep for 3 mins, and grounded, and put on some load dancing music.

    I picked up the check and ripped it up.
    It felt good, and I have no regrets.
    Only the good remains.
    Thank you for putting me in the right state of mind.
    Ready for more :).

  14. So far, so good! Although when trying to decorate my Joy Jar, what I envisioned for it doesn’t seem to work. I don’t know what I should do instead, so I asked for inspiration & will decorate it as I go along throughout the month. I tend to be over elaborate, so maybe I’m being told to simplify it, lol.
    I’ve gotten a good deal de-cluttered & cleaned in the 3 minute bursts! And I practice the 3 Minute Breathing while at the bus stop, while standing in one place for a long time at work & whenever I become stressed. I also have been clearing my mind successfully; something that was much harder in the past. This year, I’m really ready for the Challenge! 🙂

  15. This is my first year with you and so i’m loving it. For my toss to I went through all my email account and unsubscribed to all the trash I was getting. Hope this counts too.

  16. My release goal this year is ” It’s all about ME, ME, ME. My mind, my body and my spirit. I liked it so much I decided to make it my Life Mission Statement for 2015. Then I read the Joy Jar Prayer: I bring joy into my mind.I bring joy into my body. Then I read the Joy Jar Prayer :
    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!
    I immediately thought was I am in alignment with this challenge and to be true to my goals I went out and bought a membership to a gym and also got a personal trainer – Body taken care of. Reading the information that YOU post here – mind taken care of. Joy jar and Braucheri- Spirit taken care of. Love this program. What I through out today was the word can’t – it is symbolic but very important to me.
