Silver RavenWolf – Day 16 – Wednesday – 16 December – Great Release Challenge!


Underwear Day!!!

2015 Great Release Program
Day 16- December 16 2015
by Silver RavenWolf

Every day you must throw or give something away!

First Quarter Moon in Pisces (Beginnings!)

Ideal Planetary Hour for Magick — Jupiter Hour for Pisces Energy (Based on Classical Astrology) –
Mercury Hour for the Ruler of the Day

This Week’s Theme:  The Empowerment of Self

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

This Week’s Theme — The Empowerment of Self

On Day 12 you were given the challenge of designing a Five Rays of Joy program tailored just for you– a set of magickal steps you will use each morning as soon as you wake up.  This activity is designed to boost your self esteem and magnetize the field around you with positive, uplifting energy.  This week, try your best to use your Five Rays of Joy sequence first thing in the morning, and any time you are feeling depressed, stressed, frightened or unhappy.  Focus on the positive.  Take deep breaths, and if you run into an extremely stressful problem, run your hands under cold water while breathing deeply.

If you like, continue to use the Peace Prayer in your daily activities (located in Day 2 of the program) and and Peace in the Moment visualization.  When you have finished with this week’s theme exercise, move on to today’s fun activities!

Silver’s Notes

You are now well on your way to completing this year’s Great Release Challenge!  How are you feeling?  How many stars to you have on your calendar?  I still have to get my floors done…just couldn’t get to that one.  I better hurry!  Our Yule Party is this weekend!

Someone posted that they are having trouble with an area that just keeps filling back up with clutter due to family constantly throwing stuff in that spot.  Truly, they are not trying to be mean — it is simply negative patterning.  I have some suggestions if you are having this type of problem.  De-clutter the area again, and then consider any of the following:

  1.  Put a piece of furniture there (or something) that will simply stop the dumping process in that area.
  2. Spray holy water or pass burning sage over the area several times.  Is the are in somewhat of a gloomy corner?  Try placing a light or a brighter light, in that area.
  3. Use vinegar and tell your family why.  Give it a good spray!!!  When they try to dump something there, they will smell the vinegar, and hopefully remember that you have told them you are trying to keep that spot clutter free.  Of course, if you spray their stuff with vinegar by accident…hmmmm.

Let me know if any of these suggestions work for you.

Today’s Magickal Challenge

Remember the goals I told you to write down earlier in the program?  Choose one of those goals and use the information below to change that goal into a number.  Then, place that number on your altar along with a number of matching objects — for example if your goal number factors to 8 as in the example below, you could choose 8 herbs, 8 gemstones, or 8 sticks, etc.  You might wish to put these in a conjure bag along with the paper that shows how you reached that number.  Or, you could simply place 8 candles on your altar, burn them all at once, or one each day.  Today’s magick — how to turn a statement into a magick number — gives you the foundation.  The enchanting operation you choose to employ is entirely up to you!

The second part of today’s Magickal Challenge is studying the rune Ansuz/ Asa:


How can you incorporate this rune today in your life?  Can you couple this rune with your goal number?  How will you do that?

Today’s Physical Challenge 

Today’s physical challenge is everyone’s favorite!  Time to take care of your underwear drawer!  Time for mis-matched socks to go (or make them into puppets).  Throw out undies with holes and replace with new.  Wearing rags next to your body isn’t the best for your self-esteem! No matter how old you are, neat underneath is neat on the outside!  And if you go commando?  Think of another challenge.

Today’s Summary

Practice the Peace in the Moment Exercise.

Repeat the Peace Prayer, Star Throw Blessing, and Peace in the Moment exercises if you like.

Practice your personal Five Rays of Joy wake-up program.

Create your goal number using the instructions in today’s post.  Use that number in some way on your altar.

Study the Asa/Ansuz Rune.  How can you use it in your life?

Organize your underwear drawer!  Throw out the ragged ones, the socks without matches, and anything else that doesn’t belong in there!  Replace with new when you can.

Do one 3-minute dash!

Check that areas you have de-cluttered.  If they are filled back up again?  Clean and banish with incense, burning sage, holy water OR vinegar.

     Throw out or give one thing away (most important task)

Don’t forget to add the coins to your Joy Jar!

Peace with the Gods
Peace with Nature
Peace Within

Sleep Well and see you tomorrow!

  1. Dear Silver, due to I did the challange during the year, in summer, I missed your program, then I look inside last years challange and did it. Yes, I did. You are present in my life during the whole year. Last Saturday I sorted the socks. But today you inspired me really. In your very nice Rune presentation, the last one: Banish Terror, make me think about it. My Kids are often fighting. I am going to hang out this Rune, if it is okay for you, that I may print it out. Hope it will bring freedom. I love your design. And I love the main design you do every day, with the owl, goose…… Please, for next year I wish to have a beautiful swan. I readed in one of your books that the swans is the protector between the worlds. So hopefully the swan will come as well, due to 2016 should be Venus year. Thank you so much. Always if I open up your page, I am so faszinating with the Pictures & designs you create, that I always think what Andy Wharhole said: “I never reed, I only look to Pictures!” Thank you! Love, Kristina

    1. Swan is do-able — let me look at what I have already created (I think I have one). Kids fighting — had that problem myself — for you, continuous cleansing is necessary — bells, sage, incense, aromatic steam, etc. Look for anti-stress formulas that you keep filling the house with aroma — lavender, grapefruit, patchouli, sandalwood and you may also like to try lemon verbena.

  2. Hi Silver! I am starting on this challenge and I was wondering should I start with 4th day 1 and change the Astrological symbols to meet the correct day or should I start with the current Day? So far I have been doing both but can be a little overwhelming. What would you suggest? As always, you inspire me and you are an amazing teacher. Thank you for all that you do. Brightest blessings to you and yours.

    1. Good question, and I think it depends on you — the program builds on itself — so you may want to adjust it, changing the astrological symbols to the actual day (like the 16th, 17th) you are living in, even though you may be doing Day 2 of the program. If this is too complicated? Don’t sweat it — work it the way it feels best to you.

  3. Thank you very much! I am working on this! And you really help me with all your books. I love this to use things in my magic work ywhich are available. I keep it simple. Started to setting candles which burn all the time. It is very helpful. And thank you Silver, for always proceeding! Thank you for beeing always human, always a woman, mother and a business women. You are a total idol for me, learnd so much from you! Thank you for this gift. Love Kristina

  4. I definitely cleanse my hands in cold water anytime I feel down…and wash my hands and face both when I come in from shopping (as I always pick up other people’s energy) as well as after doing housework (I always feel gritty)!

    I love working with numerology, and the process of translating words to numbers. At first glance I thought you used a different system than I was used to…but then I realized that all the numbers past 9 reduce down to a single digit (that is the one I am used to)! Funny how it works like that 😉 My statement transformed into the number 4, and it was about letting go of old images of myself to become open to change, so I dug up an old picture of myself (and that was work! somehow my pictures moved and I really need to spend a day to label the boxes in my closet….add that to my free-day list!), but I found one, tore it into 4 pieces, drew a symbol on the back to represent closure and possibilities, and then set them under a wolf head on my altar (for me wolf is a personal totem since childhood). Love it!

    One of my keywords for Ansuz is grace (I’ll admit…it is probably because I love the show Supernatural, and the angels call their divine power their grace). Grace to me is that bit of divinity that is inside us all. I see Ansuz as that: the connection to divinity we carry within us and can recognize as well on the outside of us.

  5. well i fell behind emotionally and spiritually. but i’m picking myself up….starting new..i woke up very troubled today got out of bed..played piano for an hour and had to go get an MRI. well I’ve been feeling bad about myself because my limitations because my injured knee..I’ve actually have hired people to come in and clean my house and then i need to practice this program to keep it up! i also use this program on my room . i have gotten a lot of the program especially the morning experiences..brought a lot of light into my life. i’m going to start forcing myself when i wake up to do the the four joys when i wake up.. i thank-you for including me i haven’t done all exercises but the ones i did really paid off! do you have other programs coming up? i have your first lessons that you sale on your website. i’m going to start going through them. This has helped me so much..even though i fall back into negativity, i can practice these exercises to help pull me out..i’m back at the basics of 3 minute cleaning exercises!!
    my family is flying in from all over the place for Christmas and new years and i have to get my room clean—by myself- and keep up the house because they will be in and out of here. i will continue my morning whispers and my coins and peace alter practices they truly bless my life. thank you! and blessed be!

  6. I seem to have a running theme of bells this year! My magical number is five, so I took five jingle bells and put them on a red string so I can jingle them before my morning ritual! I have bells I always wear in my ankle, on my front door, and on my peace altar.

    I used the Ansuz rune to enhance my Braucherei prayer. I also drew it with my finger on my phone and laptop for good communication. I plan to draw the rune on my phone every time it rings to help me listen.
