Day 29 – Great Release Program – 29 December 2018 – Saturday – Silver RavenWolf

All things come from your mindset.
The moment you embrace this perception is the moment you are truly free.

Day 29 – 4th Quarter Moon in Libra
Saturday – Saturn Planetary Day

4th Quarter Moon lends extremely well to cleansing, clearing, and removing that which no longer serves you.  The planetary energies today through Monday support letting go; but, they also encourage personal evaluation in the process.  Don’t be fooled by what you tell everyone is the reason that you did this or that in the act of clearing– meaning, don’t believe your own PR or the release is worthless.  The program and the action work best if you treat yourself with honesty.

Oh my stars we are so-o-o-o close!  Take a few minutes to breathe deeply and celebrate all your accomplishments these last few weeks!  After today?  Only two days and we are done!  Whoot!

Your Challenge Today:  Prepare a New Year Ceremony to be done on the Eve or New Year’s Day.  If you choose the eve, you can tap into the rolling thunder energy as people celebrate across the world.  This ceremony should include your main goal and your release activities.  You may wish to keep in mind that on New Year’s Eve Mars moves into Aries and the Moon is in 4th quarter Scorpio.  On New Year’s Day, the Sun in Capricorn is co-joined with Saturn in Capricorn – giving a solid foundation to your working.  Themes for your practice may concentrate on letting go of mental and physical issues, which will feed nicely into the natural planetary flow available.  Workings to open the pathway to receive assistance from older and wiser folks, concentrating on removing the weeds that erode the base structure of what you desire, and clearing the fog of misconception might all be good choices.  Protection magicks and for self and family as well as requests for insight and fashioning poppets and sachets for healing are encouraged by the moon’s placement.  The time is also right for inquiry of information.

Your altar setup might include the primary elemental associations of the Sun and Moon. Moon is in Scorpio (water, fixed) and the Sun is still in Capricorn (earth, cardinal – starter sign).  A red candle dedicated to Mars and personal motivation might also be added.

Second Challenge:  Today, work on your weekly goal.  These last three days we’ll be concentrating on what we wanted to accomplish at the beginning of the program; but, for some reason we just didn’t get it done.

House Blessing Wash/Asperging Mixture for the New Year

HouseBlessingFloorWash

New Year Floor Wash – I posted this piece last year and am including it here should you wish to incorporate the blend in your working.  I have found that the temperature of the water truly does make a difference.  In this formula, you use the empowered herb, fruit, and water mixture to bless your house, a specific room, your front or back porch, interior and exterior doors, etc.  Check the temp of the water to ensure that it is exactly 39 degrees Fahrenheit when you empower it.  Franz Bardon (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franz_Bardon) found the water holds a charge better than at any other temp.  I’ve tried this chilled water technique and it works beautifully!

You can use this formula at any time during the year to break apart negativity and destroy blocks that stand in the way of your prosperity and general happiness.  In warm weather, use a broom to completely wash the front steps, porch, and back entrances into your living area. A good formula for general ritual circle, for cleansing the area before a wedding or baby blessing, or clearing out your sacred space once a month.

My Progress — All the holiday decorations are packed in new containers and stored.  This required tearing out the entire closet (which I was avoiding) and re-stacking by season in order of their occurrence.  Whew!  I also laundered all my holiday socks (I love holiday socks), hats, scarves, etc.  Got another bag ready for the donation bin, a box of books for the book bin, and a stack of stuff to be distributed elsewhere.  I’ve prepared my 2019 planner and already posted dates for important events.  The front porch is cleared, cleaned, and blessed as well as the back area.  The outdoor ritual circle was cleansed and will be rededicated on the new moon in January.  Tomorrow I’ll be washing the carpets and blankets.  For two days the whole house was torn apart as I labored to put away all the holiday fare.  At the beginning of the season, I promised myself that I would only use a decoration or two and that I would NOT buy any more stuff.

What?  Two more boxes to put away that weren’t there last year?  Nah!  Gulp.  What did I say earlier?  Be honest with yourself.  Argh.

Remember – No matter what – give or throw something away today.  Release!  Release!  Release!

Day 26 – Great Release Program – 26 December 2018 – Wednesday – Silver RavenWolf

Day Twenty-Six- of 2018 Great Release Program – 26 December – Wednesday
By Silver RavenWolf

3rd Quarter Moon moves from Leo to Virgo – Transition of fire to earth!

Mercury Planetary Day

Daily Brew – The Stars and You!  26 December – Wednesday – Kwanzaa begins today, many blessings to all who celebrate!  3rd Quarter Leo Moon moves into organizing Virgo, just in time for holiday clean-up and preparing your altar/living area for welcoming in the New Year on Monday when the Moon will energize the world with 4th quarter energy in Scorpio. Dump, pitch, remove, organize, straighten-up, clean, and release all that does not serve you well – Virgo energy will be more than happy to help the next two days.

Your Progress:  On yesterday’s post, Keair wrote of an experience with a fairy statue, about how they kept the broken piece even though it was from a toxic person who had left their life long ago.  Delightfully, Keair contemplated the attachments of the statue and chose to let it go.

As I grew older, I learned that if someone leaves my life in an unhappy way, it is good to go through the house and remove any items I have received from them.  I gather those things up and burn them (if they are combustible) because I believe that the energy of a gift tracks back to the moment of receipt, where you opened yourself to accept the flow of energy from that person. If that individual is negative, or insists on keeping themselves in a bad place after my association has ended, it is good (I believe) to remove all connections to/from that person.  I consciously and with purpose cut the flow of energy that runs from the individual along my personal web to me.  If I can’t burn the article, I break it, douse it with salt, and either throw it in the trash or recycle bin.  I often don’t give the object away because I don’t want negative energy attached to the piece to go to someone else.  At the same time (usually within the week) I look through my photos and eliminate that individual’s image from my collection.

To some, this may seem a waste; but, to me, it has become a relief.  Sometimes it is hard to part with an item that you liked.  And, in some ways, there is a connection to things you enjoyed about the person and the things you like about the object.  I have learned that letting go of that favored thing makes me feel so much better, even though at the moment of choice, I vacillate and dread the release.  I have held breakables in my hands, sighed, and then busted them to pieces, covered the shards with salt, shook it all together, and headed for the recycle bin.

Don’t just think about your home.  The workplace can also hold negative energy from a toxic person who has gone on to another job or department.  Although this post focuses more on one or two items, you may be left with an entire house full of goods.  In that case, ask friends to help you release and remove things.  You may wish to cleanse and bless items before you truck them off to charity.

But, for the small gift here or there (or the trash can full) regarding emotional letting go?  My outdoor bonfire has become my best friend!

This was a good day to think about gifts we have received from nice folks as well as toxic people because this is personal pamper day where your feelings and well-being are the focus of the challenge!  We have just left most of the holiday flurry behind, and there is usually that one asshole who has orchestrated the stress of the holidays to make you feel bad and heighten the drama and attention on themselves.  (Hand to forehead, “I am so leaving now!”).  And even though it may be the last time you see them (thank goodness) because you have slammed the door behind them permanently – you still carry the hurt, irritation, or anger.  I believe that by removing the stuff their sticky hands gave you, supports the choice to begin the healing process.

Only you alone can determine the value of an item, what you want to do with it, and how you wish it to exit (or not) your life.  This post discusses how I handle such things; but, you may not feel the same way.  The important practice is that you enact a release activity that supports letting go of toxic people and the items they gave you.

Your Challenge Today:  Personal Pamper Day!  Today is your day to do what you want, when you want, the way you want!  Today is all about you!  Do at least FIVE things (the number of change) to celebrate you!

Thank you so much for posting your comments!  I am also enjoying the photos!  Here is a lovely Healing Penny Packet from one of this year’s program participants!
