Celebrate all of your hard work! You are absolutely, positively, totally AWESOME!

2014 Great Release Program
Day 31 – December 31  2014 — Wednesday (Mercury Day)
by Silver RavenWolf

Every day you must throw or give something away!
Moon in Taurus — Element of Earth

Ideal Planetary Hour for Taurus Magick — Venus (Sun can also be used)

Of all the things you’ve learned this month — what habit or perception do you want to stick with you?

Use that answer to empower a green candle dotted with pancake syrup — under a Taurus Moon — words, actions, and magickal operations tend to “stick” with you longer.

This Week’s Theme: Manifestation


Try to practice the manifestation exercise in yesterday’s post (28 December) three times a day.

It is not the manifestation that is difficult — it is the belief that you can do it that’s hard.

Hail and Welcome!

Today is the last day we will be together for the program this year — Wow!  I can’t believe how quickly this month has flown by!  It has been such a pleasure working with you this season.  Thank you so much for your comments and hard work.  I promise you that your efforts will pay off in unique and positive ways!

On this last day let’s take one last walk through your environment with a pen and a piece of paper.  Congratulate yourself on all you have accomplished and write down all the changes you’ve made.  Bet you got more done than you thought you did!  When you are finished, put this list on your altar.  Next, bless a glass of water and “breathe” thoughts of joy into it.  When you lose the thought, you are finished.  Begin at your Joy altar, turn and carry this glass of water throughout your entire environment, sprinkling a bit here and there as you go.  You can use a sprig of rosemary to dip in the water, a little broom, or you fingers to flick the water if you like.  Intone the word “joy” as you walk and sprinkle the water.  Be sure to sprinkle your Joy altar last.  As you do, ask “Spirit” (what you believe runs the universe) to assist you as you perform your joy ritual.

Hold a white candle in your hands, rubbing it briskly between your palms until the candle becomes warm with the friction.  As you rub the candle, “breathe” thoughts of joy into the candle.  Light the candle.  Beginning at your Joy altar, turn and walk through your entire environment again, being sure to bring light into every corner and under things that are usually dark.  Intone the word “joy” as you fill your environment with light.  BELIEVE that the candle represents the light and spirit of pure joy — and it will be so.  Have no doubt.  Return to your joy altar and encircle the altar three times with the light.  Place the candle on the altar and allow it to burn to completion.

Pick up the list you made and read it off aloud.  Begin with:  “I honor myself and my efforts this season as I strove to make a positive change in my life and the lives of my family.  Here is a list of my accomplishments….” and continue to read the list.  When you are finished, seal the list by drawing an equal-armed cross in the air over it, then burn the list.  If you need to walk away from the altar to burn the list, that is okay; OR you can burn the list in a small cauldron right there on the altar.  When the ashes are cool, you will carry them outside and scatter them in the wind, saying:  “This year is closed.  I am proud of my accomplishments!”

Return to the altar.  Pick up and firmly hold the empty jar in your hands.  We are now going to say what we are thankful or grateful for.  This isn’t a list you’ve written down, this is one you will say aloud while holding the jar.  Begin with something like:  “I am grateful that I am alive.  I am grateful for the universe and everything in it.”  Continue with announcing everything you are truly thankful for — perhaps your job, your pet, your children, your partner, your talents — whatever…these are all the things that are “right” and “good” in your life.  Nothing is too small be be thankful for.  You can make the list as long as you like, and, honestly, the longer the better as the energy of joy grows in your heart and travels from your hands into the jar.

When you are finished, take the list of goals and desires that I had you write out the other day and place them in the jar.  Breathe into the jar, and say:  “I breathe the joy of light and positive manifestation into these goals.  (Say each goal aloud). I know they will come to pass.  I have no doubt!”  Breathe into the jar three times, then cap the jar tightly.  This jar will remain in your environment until next year at this same time, or until the goals manifest.  You can use the jar as a focal point for any magicks associated with the goals you have placed in the jar.  When the goals have come to pass — all of them — open the jar, burn the list, and rinse the jar out with salt water (so that you can use it again); OR, you can break the jar and dispose of the pieces.  Another option is to leave the jar intact until New Year’s Eve next year, when you can choose what type of ritual you would like to perform.

Place the jar in the center of your altar, sit back, breathe deeply, and allow Spirit into your life with the HeartBeat meditation I taught you during this program.  When you are finished, seal the altar by drawing an equal-armed cross in the air over the entire altar, saying:  “It is done!  I have no doubt that all I desire will come to pass.  So be it!”

You can leave the altar setup intact for as long as you like.  You may wish to use your joy altar often, or you can dismantle it twenty-four hours after your ritual.

Don’t forget, at midnight, when the laughter, noise, and bells ring in the new year to make a very special wish.  The energy of manifestation of love and joy is highest on our planet at this time (so I believe).  Let that energy carry your wish to the Gods…and beyond.

Marvin (the raven) and I thank you for your participation in the Great Release Program this year.  May your New Year be bright, may love always dance in your heart, and may wisdom ever hold your mind dear.

So be it.
Without a doubt.
Peace with the Gods
Peace with Nature
Peace within.

Only the good remains.

— Your friend, Silver.

Great Release Program – Day 27 – 27 December Saturday – Silver RavenWolf

Silver RavenWolf
Take advantage of the Void Moon today! Clean up the little stuff — take care of something you’ve been putting off!

2014 Great Release Program
Day 27 – December 27  2014 — Saturday (Saturn Day)
by Silver RavenWolf

Every day you must throw or give something away!
Moon in Pisces — Element of Water

Ideal Planetary Hour for Pisces Magick — Jupiter

Note:  Moon is Void most of the Day — Moves into Aries late in the evening

Empower a red candle for motivation to catch up!

This Week’s Theme: Stillness

Think of nothing for as long as you can.  As each thought tries to pop into your mind, take a deep breath, and envision the thought turns to liquid and melts away.  Try to practice this three times a day.

In total stillness — there is great potential.

Hail and Welcome!

The moon is void most of the day, so this is a perfect day for catch-up activities, or taking care of something you put off

and put off

and put off.

Because, eventually, if you really wanted to have it done the universe will find a way to make it so in a way you simply did not anticipate!

Like my glasses.  I was due for my annual checkup in September, and I said, “I’m too busy; but, I know I need new glasses.  I’ll get there eventually.”

In October, I looked at my glasses and said, “I really ought to make that appointment; but — meh.”

In November, I dropped my glasses and when I picked them up I said to myself, “It is way past time to get a new pair of glasses; but, not right now.”

In the beginning of December, I said to no one in particular, “I should make an appointment to get new glasses before the winter weather hits.”  Since no one answered (which they wouldn’t because I was alone at the time and if they did I would have had heart failure) — I said, “maybe later”.

 Yesterday, the puppy ate my glasses.  No worries, puppy is fine.  Glasses are deceased.  And, wouldn’t you know, when I called to make the appointment they are filled for the next three weeks.  Since I can’t read, or sew, or write without my glasses this was not acceptable.  I found a place that could see me right away, except of course, they don’t accept my eye plan.  The up side of this story is that the doctor I really liked from the regular place is now at THIS place — so that was cool.  The funny part?  When I walked into the office, I explained about the dog eating the glasses and that I needed the glasses to see.  The assistant nodded, and went about her business.  About ten minutes later she handed me a stack of papers and said, “Please fill these out.”  I looked at her and said, “No.”  Her eyes got so big.  “What do you mean, no?”

“Like I said, the dog ate my glasses.  I can’t see print on the forms to fill them out.”

She blinked.  “Oh.”

The moral of this story — do something today that you’ve been putting off so the universe doesn’t bring it to you in a way you don’t want.  Unless, of course, you like living on the edge and unusual stuff is okay with you — then have at it.

The second part of today’s challenge is “Catch-Up” —  Even the most organized person will find themselves in some type of disarray with the closure of the holidays.  There are decorations to clean and pack away, furniture to move (maybe) back in place.  Tasks left undone (like laundry) or deep cleaning the kitchen floor because a guest dumped soda and it ran into the corners — or maybe you shoved EVERYTHING in one room and just shut the door.  Perhaps you need to make room for a gift you received over the holidays, or you need to organize and store leftover wrapping paper…whatever!  Today is the day, when the moon is void, to take care of these minor tasks.

While you are doing your two challenges today let your subconscious mind  rumble over the Joy Altar we are going to put together tomorrow.  This is a temporary altar; however, if you desire, you can make it permanent.  This altar should include personal goals for the New Year, favorite colors or flowers, and the year “2015” written on paper or utilized in a prop of some kind.  You will also need a decorated jar or box that we will activate on New Year’s Eve.
