Day 19 – Great Release Program

4th Qtr Moon
4th Qtr Moon moves from Scorpio to Sagittarius — that bouncy, go-getter sign! Burn a red candle dressed with cinnamon to encourage motivational energy.
Today’s Challenge: Poppets and Spirit Dolls can be made for a variety of reasons, from gaining good fortune to banishing negativity. Poppets need not represent a specific person — they can encompass a distinct energy or a particular thought. A spirit doll can look like a person, an animal, or a mythical creature. Today’s Challenge is to make a warrior spirit doll or animal whose sole purpose is either to: Help you Release Something Difficult, or to Banish Negative Energies Within the Home/Loving Area in General. You will burn this representation right before the New Moon 24 January (Friday afternoon), so don’t get too attached to it!
I created my warrior spirit doll out of wax to banish general negativity. This is my formula:
For my doll, I filled the mold cavity with red wax halfway, and let the wax start to set (about 10 minutes) before I added the herbal mix. I finished by pouring the remaining wax to the top of the mold. You can make your spirit doll out of cloth, wax, paper, or even soap. Don’t have the herbs listed here? No worries! Fill your poppet with salt and pepper — best magickal cleansers ever! Visit the grocery store to obtain a few tomato leaves for more oomph! Once your spirit doll is made, use your Silver Protocol to set your intent into the poppet. To ensure the spirit doll is “set”. I always blow on the doll three times, whisper the intent three times over the doll, and finish by placing a burning match in (or on top of) the doll then quickly extinguish the flame. This fire is the “spark” of life. Think of your power figure as a medicine bag to heal the spiritual aura of your home. Your dolly is a warrior!!! You can even make it a little spear if you like out of a toothpick and a piece of clove glued to the end. Anoint the figure with seven drops of vinegar or rosemary water (1 cup of water hot water 1 tsp of rosemary — steep until cold — strain, remove rosemary) to give it the skill to overcome all astral enemies. “Feed” your spirit doll every day by sprinkling it with ground hot peppers. I’m also going to give mine some white lightning.
I’m going to set my doll in an open glass jar and place him in the middle of the house. His job is to absorb all the negativity in the house AND any negativity coming in from the outside. I will burn him in an outdoor fire on Thursday, the 23rd of January.
So, Silver, What’s the Deal with Using the Tomato?
In Braucherei, tomatoes on the windowsill keep negativity from entering the home. Part of the Nightshade family, tomatoes can be an integral part of the magickal homestead from protection and well-being to providing healthy food for the family. In the garden, tomatoes are thought to ward the property, mainly if you raise several colors (red, orange, and yellow). If your tomato plants experience a blight, a neighbor or enemy might be sending negativity your way. Tomato plants are tenacious, producing fruit even if parts of the plant are damaged, and will try to perform until the very end — hence, its association with strength and courage in the face of adversity. They will quickly try to expand and they produce a large amount of fruit, hence their association with abundance. The leaves are slightly toxic and can add pressure in particular banishing spells, and send “distress” to evil beings. Tomato juice can be used as a replacement for blood in certain folk magicks. Magickal correspondences for the tomato include prosperity, protection, and love. (Cunningham’s Encyclopedia of Magickal Herbs).
