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: So…I woke up today at 5:00 AM to find my husband and my son washing the dishes and cleaning the kitchen. I think I have expired! Then, my son asks me where his water cup is and I said, “Where did you put it?” – and he says: “On top of the fridge” — and I say: “We are in the middle of the Great Release Program. Anything above or below that is clutter or trash goes out the door.”
“Right,” he says, laughing. “I should have known better.”
I read your post about dealing with a non-family member in the house this morning and I have to think about it a little bit before I make some suggestions — so stay tuned, I will give you some ideas. This is crunch time for me — candle orders, Beboodles, Winter Solstice celebrations this weekend. And… I STILL have to do the floors. Onward and upward!
Today’s Magickal Challenge
Sock magick! Today we are going to do magick for a family member. Our main focus is to bring them joy; but, if they need healing or something else — that is okay, too.
First, let’s be specific and write exactly what energy we would like to give to the family member. “Natural healing for George Doodle,” or “Joy for Arnold Z. Packmeister.” Use their full name if at all possible.
Take one of their dirty socks (that they aren’t going to use again) and insert your petition, then put the sock in your pocket and go outside for a Spirit Walk. As you enjoy the time outside, tell Spirit (whatever you think that is) that you are looking for items to bring joy to — and say the person’s name specifically. Then hold out your hands and practice one of our energy exercises. Take your time looking for items to put in the sock.
What if you want to do magick for your pet? Take some of his or her fur, feathers, whatever with you on your walk as well as a small, cloth bag. No cloth bag? Use paper.
Why are we using a dirty sock? Because it contains skin cells and perspiration of the person. This gives a perfect tag for your magickk to lock into the person’s field. All you have to do is put together the magick and send the energy.
While you are on your walk, you are also going to pick up a stick — not — a huge one (unless you want to). We are going to decorate that stick on another day. Today — when you pick up the stick, say: “May you be a witness to my joy, and bring joy where ever you are placed.” Put the stick aside where it won’t be disturbed until you are ready to work with it.
At home, consider the items that you have collected in the sock. Do you need to add something else to the sock like particular dried herbs, candy or sugar? Since we are going to end this spell with fire and earth, choose only items that are combustible and biodegradable (or natural). Tie up the sock. Seal it with the equal-armed cross in the air, then place it somewhere that it won’t be disturbed.
Late a night, take out the sock, hold it in your hands and begin rocking back and forth (I know this sounds stupid; but, try it). Close your eyes, focus on the person and let the love in your heart move into the sock. Breathe on the sock — long deep breaths — pushing the love into the sock. Repeat the following charm 9 times if you like:
I sing a spell of love,
Good fortune from above
Connect and bond, joyful song
Is clear, and good and strong.
- The “spell of love” is your energy and good wishes.
- “Good Fortune from above” brings in Spirit and blessings.
- “Connect and bond” are instructions to connect the energy your are raising to the specified person and bond tightly. Granted, ultimately he or she has the right to reject this energy — however, in Braucherei all you can do is “try”.
- The “joyful song” in this charm is the energy you are sending.
- “Is clear, and good, and strong” is to make sure the pathway between yourself and the target is clear.
Okay — if the sock is too stinky — no worries. Either use a laundered one (not as good) OR sprinkle the sock with lemongrass essential, and proceed from there.
When you lose the thought — you are done. Take the sock outside and burn it. When the ashes are cool – bury them or scatter them at a crossroads.
Today’s Physical Challenge
Today’s release challenge is all about your pets! Whatever they need? Today is the day! Don’t have a pet? No worries — either do something nice for someone else’s pet, or donate pet food to your local food pantry. Don’t care for animals? That’s okay — choose another task to do today.
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.
Perform the Spirit Walk and the Sock Spell
Today is Pet Day! Center your release tasks around care for your pet.
Do one 3-minute dash!
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
Sleep Well and see you tomorrow!
