January 31 – Great Release Program – 31 January 2020 – Friday by Silver RavenWolf

Great Release Program
by Silver RavenWolf


31 January – 1st Qtr Moon moves from Aries to Taurus
Treasures of Life Spell

Place a green candle rolled in white sugar (or brown) in a bowl of fertile earth.  Use the Silver Protocol to begin the working.  Write your intent on a small piece of brown paper along with your full name (if the request is for you).  Dress the paper with liquid fluid condenser or magickal oil of your choice.  Put the paper and a copper penny under the candle in the dirt.  Surround the candle with coins of an uneven number.  Add herbs that speak of prosperity to you — I used dried marigold petals and chocolate mint.  You can also add crystals or other gemstones.  In your ritual/meditation, ask for the treasures of life to unfold.  Finish the Protocol.  Don’t forget your positive tail-ender.  

On the 2nd of February —

“Groundhog Day is actually rooted in astronomy. The date is tied to the movement of the Earth around the Sun; it marks the approximate halfway point between the winter solstice and the spring equinox! (Note: This is true for the Northern Hemisphere. In the Southern Hemisphere, Groundhog Day marks the halfway point between the summer solstice and the autumnal equinox.)”(1)

Ground Hog Day is a lovely magickal time to complete your Treasures of Life working.  Once the candle you chose has burned completely (on the 2nd of February), place the coins in a small bag as well as some of the herbs, your petition, any crystals or gemstones, and a little dirt.  Put the bag in a safe place to encourage drawing the treasures of life toward you throughout the year.  You can add magnetic sand and a lodestone if you desire.  Feed the bag once a month with sugar water or strong booze. 

Next year, on Ground Hog day 2021, disassemble this bag and decommission all items.  Re-empower and create a new bag with new dirt and a new petition. 

This year, use the remaining dirt from the bowl to plant something special like your favorite flower or use for starting garden veggies or herbs.  That way, nothing goes to waste.  To add more power to the spell, give half of the coins to charity or spend toward something for a food bank or shelter.

Today’s Challenge: 

Part I.  Walk through your living area and congratulate yourself on all you have accomplished!  Whoot!  On a piece of paper, write the 11 months left in the year (February through December).  After each month, write a goal you wish to accomplish.  It can be anything — you choose.  On the back of the paper, write the Silver Protocol (so that you will remember it throughout the year).  Place that paper where you will see it every day.  Each month, if you have accomplished your goal, draw a line through your achievement on the paper and give yourself a big reward!  If you miss the goal — that’s okay, move it or change it — again, your choice.

Part II.  Spirit Walk – Begin with the Silver Protocol, then take a walk outside to commune with nature.  Ask Spirit before you leave the house to give/show you a representation of your connection to the shamanic world of earth, air, fire, water, and spirit.  Earn 25 stars.

Part III.  Ritual Bonfire — For those who can and who enjoy the outdoors — build a bonfire to consume any old papers, herbs, or decommissioned spellwork.  Add dried herbs and roots — thanking the five elements Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and Spirit for the assistance you have received this month.  Earn 25 Stars.

Countdown Challenge – Final Day! — Do Today’s charm recitation and throw or give away one item.

This night – Final Day,  which will be Friday – repeat your name three times, follow the Silver Protocol and intone the charm (Nine Weeping Sisters) beginning at the “one weeping sister” line nine times.  After the ninth time remove the final stone, throwing it away, off your property, in running water or as otherwise discussed.  Repeat the line:  “NO! weeping sisters stand by the lake…” as loud and vehemently as you can.  Really mean it.  With the very last word, bang the table (or stomp your foot) as hard as you can!  May this spell not reverse or place upon you any curse.  May all astrological correspondences be correct for your working.  Earn 25 stars.

One weeping sister, left all alone
Jumped from the ship and sank like a stone.
No weeping sisters stand by the lake.
The evil is gone!  Peace in its place!

The Completion of this Program — It has been a pleasure working with you this year!  Did you complete all of your challenges?  Did you move through the month with accomplishment and empowerment?  Do you think you will be able to continue some of the things you tried in the program throughout the year?  What did you like about the program?  What did you dislike?  How can the program be improved to serve you better?  I wish you the very best success, much love, and great wisdom and healing!  Thank you so much for being a part of our exciting experience of The Great Release Program 2020!

  1. I love, love, love the program this year because it’s the perfect way to start with a clean slate and clarity on all levels. It helped immensely and you know I always keep coming back year after year for this. I love how we can all do this together which is something you can’t get from a book. I couldn’t complete anything with fire in it because Australia is currently going through a severe fire crisis and there is a total fire ban. Candles weren’t a problem in the house though. I would love to see crafting ideas on how to make the rattle in the introduction or what you have made (love that). Making my own tools for the program with ideas from you is very powerful and it’s like your there crafting in the same room with us. Reached most of my 30 day goals but not all, but then I can go through the program throughout the year too and memorise a few chants. Thank you Silver RavenWolf for being an amazing person who enjoys sharing with us and making things fun!

  2. Thank you so, so much for this programme! I say it every time and I mean it every time! I didn’t manage to keep up with all of the challenges this year, but I did keep up with the general release, de-cluttering and creating change focus, which is awesome. I’ll absolutely be continuing into the new year. The main reason I didn’t keep up is that I started manifesting so many excellent things that I suddenly became swamped with possibilities taking up my time.

    I had a different approach to the programme this year. Before I’ve focused on just the task at hand – get something clean according to the instructions because my house desperately needed de-cluttering and releasing and every time I worked on it things got better. After last year I’ve kept up very well with that so I focused on releasing and clearing with a specific purpose in mind, like manifesting something or releasing something non-clutter related. It’s worked amazingly well and I’ll definitely be using that attitude when I’m working on things in the future.

    I love the Silver protocol. Along with my new attitude of releasing with an intent, that’s probably the very best thing I’ve learned this year.

    When I think back to the first time I did the programme, so many good things have happened and I’ve made so many important changes over those years. I feel like I’m starting the new year with heaps of possibilities that didn’t seem possible just a month ago. Thank you so much again! Not just for the programme itself, but for replying to our comments and being genuinely interested in how we’re doing.


  3. Dear Silver RavenWolf, I thank You for this program ❤ I have been part of your release programs for some years and I notice that each year I become more attuned and with more understanding. The programes you create work on many levels and each time there are wonderful spells and ideas you share and I add them in my BOS and use them further. Your Spirit Walk spell is amazing! Your creative poppet work is amazing! The candle magick you offer is great ! The work within that we do through concentration and affirmation is so empowering! I have done much cleaning during this current program, I have released lots of trauma and negative emotions and stirred my deep waters to take out the subtile garbage and open the space for my Joy and Freedom to come within and replace my fears . During this program I worked on freeing myself from the wrap of intruders and people who occupy my time and take away my energy and freedom and try to prevent me doing my craft and my mission /making me feel myself odd and loser and unworthy/ , at the end of this program I released much and my hope is that I will win this struggle with Peace. Thank You! Blessed Be ❤ 🙂

    1. It was so wonderful to have you with us again this year! I look forward to seeing you return! I am so glad that the work has been helpful and I wish you much love and success this year!

      1. Thank You Silver! My release process should continue. I am in a very difficult life situation right now and I need one more month to work. I was shown in a dream that it is a matter of literally saving my life. And the sad thing is that the enemy is a very close to me woman that …like these presents I removed…has been living with me so many years. Now I need to banish her influence on me. I was shown what to do…Ceridwen Mother Witch came as my guide and guardian. I know I am supported and I am staying. I am with You Sisters and We Are Strong Together! In Perfect Love and Perfect Trust !

  4. Did you move through the month with accomplishment and empowerment?

    I totally enjoy this program every time I do it and it has certainly brought accomplishment and empowerment to my life!

    Do you think you will be able to continue some of the things you tried in the program throughout the year?

    Definitely! Many of the things you shared so graciously and more!

    What did you like about the program?

    I love working with you, Silver. Your straight forward manner is my style and what I love about all of the workings that we do. I also love the camaraderie of working the group of people who follow you. Your way of working is fun (even when very serious) and powerful.

    What did you dislike?

    I can honestly say that there isn’t anything I dislike about this program, except that it ends!

    How can the program be improved to serve you better?

    More meditation charms like the ones you posted yesterday and today! I also loved the little charms we craftily created last year, i.e., the gnomes, penny packets, the moose, the scissors over the door, etc.

    Post how you feel about the program this year.

    This program was a delicious surprise and came at just the right time for me this year. After our 18,000 mile camping excursion last Summer we were feeling the overwhelm of having to get our Florida Basecamp back in order. We were away for 6 months. Hubby and I were feeling stressed and like we couldn’t get enough done. These negative feelings were putting a damper on our ‘harmony’ factor. The program helped get us up to speed, move us along, and most of all realigned our focus as to what is important in our life!

    Did it help?

    That answer is a resounding, “Yes!”

    Where do you feel there should be an improvement?

    Only in myself…

    Will you come back next year?

    I certainly will and I will be waiting with bated breath!!!

    Hugs and Kisses and a BIG THANK YOU, right back atcha’ !

  5. I’m sorry, but I’m not sure what is supposed to happen on the 2nd of February? Is that when we do the candle spell, or is that when we do phases II and III?

  6. Thank you Silver for your program. I must say that I don’t follow everything and I think it is because I read my mail in the afternoon around 16.00. In the morning I have no time. I have about 40 animals, they want a clean “house”and food before I start working. I take care for 2 boys, before they go to school, so I leave 7.00. After that I work somewhere else.
    After reading mail, facebook and some time on Pinterest it is time for my animals again. And for myself. My house is not empty, there is more in it. My father died in november and all his furniture has to go. We ( my sisters and I) want to try to sell it, and I have the most space. I live alone, when you don’t count the animals.
    But I did clean my whole kitchen, and a part of the diningroom. You give my inspiration to start making dolls again. I want that so long and every time there is something more important then my dollmaking. I made 1 doll and a quarter moon doll. Yesterday I started with a new doll, I hope it will be the goddes Bride.
    This was the 2 year I followed your program, and I will follow next time. I like the candle spell (what I did yesterday) I work with herbs and crystals and like everything creative.
    Thank you again and I see you on facebook.

  7. First of all thanks to the program, unfortunately I have not been able to do all the challenges, especially where you have to use fire. I think the neighbors would call the fire department 😀. I have to say that the most complicated areas of the house, now they are free and clean, you breathe just another energy. There is more space and less trash, even the closets are ok.
    I believe that in the coming months I will continue on this path, and this spring I intend to whitewash the whole house and continue like this.
    I hope it’s a happy and blessing year for all of us 💕

  8. I loved the program!! I do it every year!! It sets me up for the year Beautifully!! I am very grateful!! What do I do on February 2nd? And what do I do with the paper I wrote my name on 9 times? Much love and many blessings to you!!

  9. Dearest Silver RavenWolf,
    I want to thank you with all my heart for this! My Bud and I’s future is very uncertain, he’s retiring from the Air Force and we dont have a plan. This program has helped me to embrace the journey to come and release fears for the future. Also get rid of unnecessary things from our current home.

    As I walked through my house that sense of lightness I wanted to achieve most is their. The house doesn’t seem as oppressive. The fact that it’s been kept tidy and clutter free is a huge help! I mostly completed my goals and quite a few of the challenges. I definitely moved through this month with a great sense of accomplishment and empowerment.

    Things I will continue is watching the areas that collect clutter and nightly dash. Also the morning rituals. Question, do you have any suggestions for taking the Braucherei Ritual on the road? Soon we will be traveling, for how long we do not know.

    Working in figuring my goals for the year. Can’t wait to Spirit Walk once I post this. Will probably reply to this post once I’m done. Oh and I have coins from Japan i plan to use for the Treasure Spell. That might have to wait for my return tonight. Thank you once again!
    With love and blessings,

    1. I practiced your Protocal and set out on my Spirit Walk. While crossing the street on my way to the local pond I saw a piece of quatz; immediately thought, “this is my Earth!” On the path to the pond I saw these curious seed pods for a tree; I did not know what tree but there were 5 together and thought, “here’s my Spirit.” So I’m now walking around the pond and found a feather from a water foul, “Oooo my Water!” Now I only need wind but I do not want another feather, viola! A dandelion fluff! I adore dandelions! I have found my Air! I’m returning home and I see a bright pink piece of ribbon and I have to have it! I get home and go straight for my Spirit Walk box I’ve been using since I first did this program years ago. I gently placed the items inside and then I knew why I found the ribbon. I placed my wish for the year upon the ribbon 9 times using knots. Now I curious about the seed pod and look it up. It’s to an Eucalyptus Tree, so I look up its meaning. “The eucalyptus is a holy tree for the Aboriginals. For them it represents the division of underworld, Earth and heaven. At a spiritual level the eucalyptus has a purifying effect. Negative energy disappears in the place where you burn a eucalyptus leaf.” It couldn’t be more perfect, unless I resided in Australian instead of California. Hehe A million thanks! I was wandering without a path and now I’ve found it once more!

  10. Again I have done my best to try to complete this program. All our stuff is ready to move just waiting for my daughter to get a great job offer. My son has come to the realization that he too needs a better job. I’m trying to take care of the mess that is my mother’s house. But they’re hoarders. At least the kitchen is clean, as well as the bathroom. Everything else is still work in progress. Thanks again for the push to get started on the place.

  11. Thank you Silver! I made a lot of progress with emotional healing during the month and hope that a new romance may be brewing. Was not able to complete my goals but I intend to continue for a couple of weeks to see what else happens! Bright blessings…

  12. Really liked this round. Choosing to do my working at night, it took me to disposing stones along the River, not the best place for a girl to walk alone. So I would roll down the window of the car and toss my stone that way. And the times I did it that way those stones ricocheted all over the car. They did not want to leave! Also, if doing this again, I had organized the stones according to size. Small to largest. Would do it the other way around, as I feel I set myself up to hang on to the maximum amount of ick. I do feel marvelous and thank you kindly, my Sister! Blessed Be!

  13. Dearest Silver this is the first year that i have done this program and i am so happy that i did! There is nothing i dislike at all and i loved so many things. I especially loved the fun and excitement you have created around the challenges and how everyday would bring something new, a surprise. I have been excited and happy to check my email everyday for “Silver’s email’ and a little disappointed today that the challenge has ended. I love the morning ritual and rattle bath!!!! Without going into a lot of detail, the last few years have taken a toll on my self-esteem and this program has empowered me to look to myself for change and i have taken steps to make dreams come true through the reward system. I did not finish everything, but did many tasks everyday. In the middle, I was bitten by the muse and completed half of a huge creative career project and getting ready to complete part 2. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful knowledge and expertise and to all of the participants sharing too. i am getting my life back and a huge part of the process is thanks to this program. THANK YOU SOOO MUCH SILVER! Many blessings to you always!

  14. I want to say thank you, Silver, for this program. It has helped jump start my year in such a positive and magical way. I loved how crafty everything was and how much it inspired me and pushed my creative and magical boundaries, in the most amazing and wonderful ways. There so many things that I will continue to carry on with through out this year. I look forward to the next journey we get to share together.

  15. I just want to thank you so much for this program! I entered this year in a very poor mental state that was also affecting my physical health. I think I made it through 3 days and ended up with the flu for a week, and realized I couldn’t keep up or catch up. But- I also realized that just by getting rid of that one thing a day, putting 5 minutes into organizing a pile of receipts or folding laundry, I started to feel less overwhelmed. I managed to catch up with so many things my depression and anxiety kept me from even attempting, and am even beginning on my nightmare of a basement. I made some candles, a rattle for the rattle bath, some Imbolc decorations, and even read The Witching Hour! I will be continuing re-reading your blog posts, and hope to incorporate more of these practices into my daily life. Thank you again, for helping me make space for the Magick 🙂

    1. I am so proud of you! You are doing amazing!!!!! Yup, one little thing a day — that’s all it takes, and then, after a while, you want to do more — want being the operative word, lol. Big hugs!
