Release Week Closure — from Silver RavenWolf and Taco Cat


I’d like to thank everyone that participated in the week-long program this year.  To me, it went extremely well and the 8-day format was something I could handle both in the creation and implementation.  I liked running the program after the holiday season, although I didn’t expect the emotional rollercoaster it presented on various days — which you may have experienced yourselves.  Given that we packed a great deal within just 7 days, with body, mind and soul effort, there was bound to be some fallout — whether it was emotional or event-oriented, due to our hard work.

Our purpose was to “shift” the energies — and we surely did that!

The most successful portion of this year’s program, I think, was the Need Dolly — called by some participants the “Needy Dolly” (which I rather liked because the title spoke on many levels).  As I am currently finishing up a spirit doll book, I will be adding the Needy Dolly to the work along with our experiences from this program with that particular magickal vehicle.  The Needy Dolly?  I consider her the Magickal Boots on the Ground for this season’s release program!

In other areas of my life, I actually managed to finish my offensive closet — which had escaped my repeated efforts on several occasions in the past three months.  I was able to donate 10 bags of clothing, and clean out the bedroom closet as well, along with the other daily tasks.  All junk drawers are cleared (we won’t share how many I actually have — it will be our little enchanted secret).   On the uplifting and magickal task-oriented side of life this past week, I created two new “dollies” which will also be in the spirit doll book.

Taco Cat and I thank you so much for your interest in the program this year!  The energy was fantastic and we could feel the participants working all over the world!  Sweden, France, England, Australia, Canada and more — it was a pleasure to be with all of you!  Taco Cat and I will put together another program — perhaps for MidSummer?  Until then, I have Taco Cat buckled up for a road trip!  We’re going to have a little fun and catch us some Pokemon!

The main thrust of all of my Release Programs is to get you to learn to “shift” the energy.

That’s it.

That’s the core.

When you are sad, unhappy, over-worked, stressed, feeling so down that you think you can never get up again?  Just one little switch.  Just one change.  Just one step.

That’s all it takes to move forward in a way that will help you.

One breath.

One thought.

One change.

Release one thing.

Just one — to shift that energy!

Today (Friday) is devoted entirely to our Need Dolly.  Every day we told our dolly what we need in our lives.  The dolly has seen how we live and watched our family members.  This day, we command our dolly to walk through all realms, both seen and unseen and provide an open pathway for our success!  I usually cast a circle, and burn my Need Dolly, telling him or her specifically what I want without being overly complicated.  Then, I seal the working when the doll is completely burned.  You may not wish to use fire – perhaps you would like to use water – a stream or river – if your dolly is completely natural, it won’t harm any animals by releasing it this way.  Others may wish to bury their dolly, burying the pain, trouble, and debt deep within the earth and asking that their lives be cleansed of difficulty.  To bury the doll, take it apart, sprinkle it with sea salt and lavender, and lay the pieces to rest.  In the end — how you release your doll is entirely up to you.  You have the power.

I choose to do a small ritual, outdoors, where I will add dried lavender, white sage, and lemon verbena from the family herb garden.  I will cast a circle, call the quarters, ask for the blessing of divinity, and then command the doll.  I will also ask that all negativity in and around the household and family be banished, and that sweet joy, harmony, and laughter fill the space.  At that point, I will burn the doll and the herbs — uttering a short chant of my choice that supports this working until the flame dies to nothing.  Then, I will thank deity, close the quarters, take up the circle and scatter the cold ashes in the winter wind.

After you release your doll?

Rest and party!  It is a 4th quarter moon after all!  A time of passion, joy, and relaxation!  You deserve it!

Thank you so much for joining us this year.  If you liked this short program, please let me know in the comments section.  Perhaps we could schedule another close to MidSummer?  If there is enough interest, Taco Cat and I will put our heads together to whip up another fun week of release!

Best Wishes
Until we meet again!
