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. Don’t forget to use the Peace Prayer and the Star Throw in your daily activities (located in Day 2 of the program). When you have finished with this week’s theme exercises, move on to today’s fun activities!
Magickal Challenge — The Power of Five
In numerology, five is the number of change — and that is what this program is all about — changing our environment and ourselves — making adjustments to reach our goals. Today’s Magickal Challenge is something we’ve never covered before – disengaging ourselves from the drama of others. Yes, you can still care for people and NOT LIVE their angst.
Embroiling ourselves in the fears, anger, pain or depression of others can be incredibly debilitating, leading to sickness within the self. It is necessary for you to stop and remember that you can not live their lives for them. You can be caring, sympathetic and loving — but, their trials and tribulations are their life path — not yours. You can be supportive, of course; but, accepting their angst as your own just isn’t healthy. If you are unsure about The Power of Five Spell, use your divination tool to double-check if this is the right working for you at this time. Drama also comes from those we really don’t particularly care about; but, find ourselves somehow stuck in the whirlpool they have created. They circle the drain clawing at you for attention in an effort to suck you in right along with them. This type of drama isn’t healthy, either, and needs to be banished quickly. It wastes your valuable time, and takes away from those you care about.
For this simple spell you will need five sticks that you have collected from outside. Do not take sticks from a living tree or bush — gather only those that have fallen to the ground. When you are ready, sit quietly and think about connections you may have to someone else’s drama — perhaps a parent, a child, sibling, co-worker…good friend…even an enemy. Acknowledge verbally that you do not own their drama, and that their choices are not your responsibility, nor are their choices your guilt. Read the statements below before speaking the words aloud. Do you wish to change any of the statements? If so, re-write them before going forward with the working.
Hold the first stick with both hands. Break it! As you do, say: “I break all negativity within my body, mind and soul. I release this negativity into the light.”
Hold the second stick with both hands. Break it! As you do, say: “I break all the negativity around my body, mind, and soul. I release this negativity into the light.”
Hold the third stick with both hands. Break it! As you do, say: “I specifically break the negative connection between myself and others. I send all anger, fear, worry, hatred and pain into the light.”
Hold the fourth stick with both hands. Break it! As you do, say: “I do not own the drama created by others, and I do not carry the responsibility for it.”
Hold the fifth stick with both hands. Break it! As you do, say: “I blend with the Spirit of the Universe. I release my feelings of anxiety, hatred, insecurity, and emotional pain from my mind, heart, body, and soul. I am one with Spirit, accepting the change I desire. I AM joy!”
In Braucherei, some believe that the negativity of others attaches itself specifically to the back of your neck, where it insidiously makes its way into the body. After you have broken all the sticks, wash the back of your neck with blessed water and draw an equal-armed cross on the back of your neck with your finger — this is to seal the area. Burn the sticks outdoors.
How do you feel?
Physical Challenge — Refrigerator/Freezer Day! Yes, I know — yucko. If you have already cleaned your refrigerator, pick another task that you feel will be most useful to you. Tomorrow is Floor Day — where we will clean all the floors AND the front door. You might want to pick up a lemon, lime, or orange — or all three to add magickal punch to your wash water.
