Day 2 – December 2 2015
by Silver RavenWolf

Every day you must throw something away!

Wednesday
Moon in Virgo- 3rd Quarter (Finishing!)

Ideal Planetary Hour for Magick — Mercury Hour

Light a Silver or Blue Candle to bring Virgo Moon energy into your day!

This Week’s Theme:  Clearing Your Mind

The Foundation —  Begin your day with the Braucherei Morning cleansing and empowerment exercise (please view first post of the program ), 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!

Silver Notes — How did you do yesterday?  Did you make your Joy Jar?  The Thanksgiving holiday was a marathon of activity for me.  It took me four days to recover, only to look around the house yesterday with eyes bugging out of my head at the mess (like my ignored laundry and the covered roasting pan sitting on the counter that I thought was washed — and wasn’t — yuck, four day old duck drippings).  Argh!  Then there was the guest bathroom.  A cobweb as big as a basketball behind the door complete with munching spider…did I really forget to put away those Halloween decorations by the sink?  And my work room?

Shudder.

Several times.

But, that’s okay because this year’s release program will take care of that — and more!  I’ll just take it one step at a time, multi-task to save steps, and onward I will go!  If I have trouble clearing out an area, I use the Three Pass Technique.  For example, have you ever gone through a drawer, cleaned it out, and found yourself putting most of it back?  Just can’t part with this.  I might need that.  Hmmm, what does that go to?  Better not throw it away.  Doesn’t matter that I’ve seen it in there for over a year and still have no clue what it belongs to.  So!  I developed the Three Pass Technique:

Pass One — Empty the drawer and clean it out.  Throw some stuff, like wadded up paper, silt, yarn boogers, etc.  Organize what is left and put it back.
Pass Two — One week or a few days later — Empty the drawer.  Throw more stuff.
Pass Three — One week or a few days after Pass Two — Empty the drawer.

Of course, you could always be courageous and just dump the entire drawer the first time.  Remember, you are in control.

The Three Pass Technique is super advantageous for many areas of your home from small to large.  Sometimes, you just can’t part with stuff the first time around.  Maybe because of an emotional attachment, or you might think it will be needed later, or you just aren’t sure who it belongs to.  Surprisingly, the second time looking at the same junk is both soothing and motivating.  Yeah, I know, it sounds crazy — yet, you realize that you are totally in control…and then you say to yourself, “I don’t really need that,” and out it goes.  Or, you may not have the epiphany of release until that third pass.  That’s okay.  The fact that you are revisiting the object a third time should tell you something — usually, that it needs to go and it is okay NOW to release it.

Are ya ready?  Let’s move on to today’s release!

Today’s Challenges!

Magickal Challenge — Today we are going to look around our living environment and we are going to find a place to set up a temporary Peace Altar.  This is a place where we can (for a moment each day) fill ourselves with light and joy and acknowledge our release activities.  This “place” can be a shelf, a table top, or even a movable candle board.  Once you find it, clean the area thoroughly and take some time decorating it in a way that you feel will serve your family best.  Bless the altar and add your Joy Jar.

When you have time, light a white candle and repeat the following:

There is peace in the moment.
There is peace in my person.
There is peace in my heart.
There is peace in my mind.
There is peace in my spirit.
I send light and blessings to my ancestors.
I send light and blessings to my family.
I send light and blessings to my friends.
There is joy within me.
So be it.

Take a deep breath after each sentence, allowing your words to become reality within you.  When finished, do the Star Throw Blessing.  To do this, stretch out your dominant hand toward the earth.  Imagine that there are glittering stars of healing there.  Scoop up that energy in one graceful movement and move the stars with that hand into your heart chakra.  Breathe deeply.  As you exhale, throw the stars out into the universe, imagining that they are blessings and healing energy to those you love (or for those who desperately need it right now).

Be the healer.

Practice the Peace Prayer and the Star Throw Blessing every day this week.  Each night before you go to bed, stop at your Peace Altar and acknowledge your hard work of the day.  Be proud of yourself and welcome the joy of accomplishment no matter how large or small.

Physical Challenge — Clean out one drawer somewhere within the home, as well as the following:

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 tomorrow.  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.

  1. Merry Meet. Im up early and working on day one. Yesterday in preparation, i cleaned, organized, and set up my sacred room for the 30 day release program (and day one). Im feeling great! Blessings to everyone!

    Blessed Be
    Caladriana

  2. Time to let go of some stuff that I’ve been holding on, like the kids toys, let someone else enjoy it now.

  3. I’m super excited for this program. My life and home are filled with stagnation, but daily stress makes change seem impossible. This is just the kick start I need to get back in the drivers seat. I’m tired of life living me, instead of me living life! Thank you Silver!

  4. My first day was so wonderful, I love it. I have to work on the 3’s, my 3’s lasted more like 3 hours . I am ok with that , got so much done and felt wonderful! Thank you so much!

  5. My experience may not be anything like everyone else’s. After doing the rituals and cleaning exercises yesterday I took a meditative bath. During this meditation I was pulled by a guide towards higher realms (this was not the first time). This time however, my guide informed me that my soul needed to be torn apart and asked if I was prepared. A little confused, I said ‘yes, I’m ready.’ As we went onward and upwards, I saw dark pieces falling away from my spirit body. After finishing the meditation, I did feel more at peace. Last night however as I lay in bed trying to sleep, hurtful memories of my past started popping into my head- even things I have visited in the past and thought I had moved beyond. It was then that I realized what my guide was talking about. I reviewed (and cried) and once again released these memories.

    I have done the release challenge for several years, but this is the first time that it has affected me on this level. If this happened on the first day, I can’t wait to see what comes by Day 31!

    Thank you!

  6. I think I really need to start doing the 3 pass technique. I have tons of stuff I hold onto ‘in case I can use it’ (the curse of a crafter!), but I really feel like some of it is just filling space with a negative energy (hoarding stuff because I might not be able to replace it later). I am starting to think I”m blocking my own abundance by acting like I have to keep every last piece of everything.

    I did give my crafting bin a once over today though (instead of a drawer….we don’t have a lot of drawers actually), and organized and moved some things (and tossed some stuff!).

    Letting go is very hard for me.

  7. On Monday, I thought I’d gone a little mad when I decided to clean and defrost my freezer (with the use of a pick and hair dryer lol). That was before I had the thought to check to see if you had started this years challenge! Yes! By Tuesday, I had caught up to Wednesday’s challenges (because I skipped reading the “day” it was supposed to be. We got so caught up in our 3 minute challenge we cleared, cleansed and reorganised the whole living room. Today I was gone all day, so I tried to recall all the bits I could and practiced them as the bus rumbled towards Dublin. I shared your page with several new people. This is my 4th year. I love these!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  8. Thanks to this Program, I’ve been very good about throwing out or giving away things I no longer need. In July I made my own GRP, drawing a random number tied to a task for the day, picking an oracle card for guidance, & working with your Angel book & my Guardian Angel. It was fun, lol! I did a great deal of tossing & donating (FINALLY took on that closet which I de-fanged!). So when December started I couldn’t figure out what the heck I would toss each day. Then I started on a drawer in the bathroom…now I have to take out the trash because it’s full from my rampage of tossing junk throughout the house! The bathroom actually feels a bit lighter now that I paid extra attention to it. I’m sure I’m not alone when I say that it’s my least favorite room to clean which is why it needed the most attention obviously.
    Adding coins to my Joy Jar felt great! I was suprised at the instant soothing quality of the quick ritual. This year I feel closer than ever to achieving mine & my Better Half’s goals. We finished our successful day with snacks, a little wine & a classic movie (1951’s “The Day the Earth Stood Still)!

  9. I must say I love the Star Throw Blessing.🙂 Well, everything else, too, but this specifically.🙂
    I’m finding it difficult finding things to throw away as we’ve only just moved this year and got a lot sorted out (and yes, thrown away or given away) beforehand. So it’s smaller bits here and there.

  10. Absolutely LOVE this prayer: There is peace in the moment There is peace in my person. There is peace in my heart. There is peace in my mind. There is peace in my spirit. I send light and blessings to my ancestors. I send light and blessings to my family. I send light and blessings to my friends. There is joy within me. So be it. I made a decorative prayer card with this on it and it sits on my altar. Lovely. Again I see the mind, body, spirit connection. I created my altar, a traveling altar that I can set next to the wall out of the way when I am not using it and when I do I set it right in front of my long standing altar. I do the Braucherei, and the other prayers and when I am finished I do a 15 minute meditation. I was doing my meditation at night but switched it to daytime. Looking forward to day 3
