“What is that?”
“Where did it come from?”
“You don’t expect me to eat that.”
“Of course I do!”
“What is it?”
“Two months of meat left overs in one pot.”
“Why would you do that?”
“The Great Release Program.”
“Today’s challenge was to clean out the freezer. Ta-da! Where are you going?”
“To hide all the garbage bags because I know this is just the beginning.”
Your Challenge Today – Clean out the Refrigerator/Freezer
Day One is done! On to Day Two! This is the weekend so you may have more time to accomplish release tasks (or not). Remember, do what you can just follow the primary rule:
Throw one thing out. No giveaways this first week. Toss. Toss. Toss.
Easy Chakra Balance Techniques: Yesterday I promised you a fast way of balancing the chakras – simply take your rattle, or a quartz crystal tied to a string and use the item to make a counter-clockwise motion over the chakra while breathing deeply, pause, and exhale. Do this 3 times, then switch to a clockwise direction. I have also used my hand to do the same thing when I’ve been super busy. This technique seems to remove stress and bring mental balance even on the most hectic day. Like this idea? You can learn a lot more energy manipulation techniques for your well-being by reading Donna Eden’s Energy Medicine – Balancing Your Body’s Energies for Optimal Health, Joy, and Vitality. She also has videos on the net. Check ‘em out!
Cleansing Formula for Clearing and Balancing Energies in the home or workplace. You might like using this fragrant and powerful herbal blend to remove negativity from an area. Asperge (sprinkle) the water around the premises. For a more enhanced practice, follow with herbal cleansing smoke or incense, and a lit white candle. Finish with the sweet sound of bells or a singing bowl.
Sweet Sleep Sachet – try using a mixture of Chamomile (Sun), Linden (Jupiter), Catnip (Venus), and Rose (Venus) in a sachet bag, packet or pillow. I also add Ashwagandha Root (Sun-Jupiter) available fromStarwest Botanicals – https://www.starwest-botanicals.com– Not only is this a great mixture for a Sachet and Sleep Poppets – it is a super great tea! Just remember, when ingesting any herbal be sure to do your research for the safety of your own body and consult your physician before mixing any herb with medications or health conditions. Pre-wash the bag/material to remove any negativity or harmful chemicals. You may wish to choose a particular color or image for the bag. For example, you can order material from internet shops that focus on a particular spirit animal like an owl, stag, bear, horse, etc. You can even make your packet out of decorative craft paper or card stock. Bless the herbs, then let your mixture “marry” for 24 to 48 hours in a glass jar with a tight seal.
When you are ready to activate the blend, be sure to have an open mindset that anything is possible. Projecting negative thoughts, feelings, or energies of future circumstances will ruin the work. To help keep a clear head, I usually visualize myself standing in a cave, facing a brilliantly lit opening where all you can see is a clear blue sky and the blue sea. This is my idea of “anything is possible” or “the way is absolutely clear”. Set your intent – for example, sweet sleep, or restful sleep. Bless the herbs. Breathe on the mixture 9 times, pushing your intent into the herbs. Finish with a simple “thank you” or “Peace with the Gods, Peace with Nature, Peace Within”. Draw an equal-armed cross over the sachet to bind your request and seal the energies.
Place the sachet under your pillow. I bury mine at the bottom of my pillowcase. You can also hang the bag over your bed, place on a shelf above the bed or tie to a bedpost. If this is your choice, you may wish to add any of these gemstones as sleep aids: Amethyst (cleanses the aura), Clear Quartz (shielding), Hematite (remove emotional pain), Jade (stress reduction), Labradorite (heighten intuition), Rose Quartz (brings healing and transmutes negative energy). As with any gemstone, be sure to cleanse, bless, and program before use or you may experience the opposite of what you desired. Every stone works by its nature and is a natural energy unto itself – your input is necessary for a harmonious working.
Use the packet/pillow for 10 days – then cleanse the bag in sunlight for a few hours. Place the cleansed sachet in a glass jar in a dark cabinet and allow the sachet to “rest” for 10 days. Reactivate with the mindset, intent, and breath technique when you are ready to use again. If you have had any negative experience with the mixture, burn the bag outdoors.
Rather than sachets, I often make Bedroom Buddies – sleep poppets. You can find instructions for this type of magic in my new book Poppet Magick – Patterns, Spells & Formulas for Poppets, Spirit Dolls & Magickal Animals.
