Decisions, Decisions, Decisions…isn’t that what we constantly face? Sometimes the idea that we must move in a direction is so frightening that we have difficulty wiggling even one pinky-toe toward a course of action.
I call this “tharning” — like a deer in the headlights (of which I see plenty out here in the woods). Read it once in a book — Watership Down. Yup.
The New Year often presses the mind with the concept that we do have choices…we do have the opportunity to start anew.
The biggest hurdle? The idea there is a hurdle in the first place.
Here is a little liquid magick that doesn’t go in the gullet on New Year’s Eve — 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 the 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.
Happy New Year!!!

Great Release Program 31 December 2013 Tuesday — Day 31!

Sun in Capricorn (Earth)
Fourth Quarter Moon – Release and Rest Moon in Capricorn – Structure, Reward, Management, Authority Tuesday — Ruled by Mars Today: Angels of the New Year!
Congratulations! By finishing today’s challenge you will have successfully completed this year’s Great Release Program! Whoo-hoooo! Good job! I am so proud of you! How did the program work for you this year? Did you find December to be less stressful? Were you able to meet personal challenges with joy or at least been able to ride through the stress with a calmer attitude? Do you feel better than when you started? Some of your success you can see right now; however, during 2014, you may discover hidden achievements as a result of this year’s program. These will surface as you need them. Before we continue with our last day together, I would like to thank you for working so hard with me this year! It has been a pleasure to spend quality time with you. I realize how busy your schedule is and that reading and following the program is a gift of your time.
Everything has a pattern — some more stable than others. With each new pattern, Spirit provides an intelligence to watch over it. Some people see this intelligence in the form of Angels. Each new year has its own pattern — the highs, the lows, the accomplishments, the sorrows. Every year has its own energy. It is up to you to blend what is right for you along your path of enlightenment. Yesterday we talked about the astrological energies that will be active on New Year’s Eve. The moon moves into Capricorn in the afternoon (morning for some) giving you a platform of structure, limits and reward. Capricorn is an excellent sign for Goal Setting and Resolutions! Today, I would like you to take a small, plain brown paper bag, and write My Wishes and Goals for 2014 on the front of it. Then, take the time to write out exactly what you would like to accomplish in 2014 on a piece of paper. Put the paper in the bag. Next, time to take a Spirit Walk with your bag. You can go outside, or you can stay inside — the point is that you focus on communing with nature and a higher power as you move around, intuitively placing items in the bag that you feel match your 2014 goals. You will burn this bag at the stroke of midnight tonight, so don’t put anything in there that you want to keep. Take your time on your Spirit Walk. Try not to rush it, if possible — but, if you are pressed, flow with it and do what you can. The fact that you put any effort at all into the task is what is most important. What might go in your bag? Herbs, bits of ribbon, a feather you find…you choose the contents of the bag. When you have finished with your walk, put a lock of your hair in the bag — this is to tie your mental goals to your physical self, so be sure you really want what you are asking for. If you have plenty of time, feel free to decorate your bag with colors, sigils, doodles — again, you choose. Before closing, blow three, deep empowered breaths into the bag, then tie, staple or glue shut.
Sit quietly and rub the bag in your hands, first connecting with nature, and then connecting with Spirit. Ask the Angels of 2014 to help you. They are locked and loaded, ready to get to work helping you. Continue rubbing the bag and thinking about your goals — don’t let negative thoughts wiggle in — keep focused, breathe deeply during the process. When you are finished, your hands will probably be very hot. That’s just fine. Seal your work by drawing an equal-armed cross in the air over the bag. Set the bag aside. At the stroke of Midnight tonight — burn the bag. For those of you living in warmer climes (where the ground is not frozen) you can use an old Braucherei technique of burying the bag in the ground for three days. On the third day, resurrect the bag, add more energy to it, and then burn it — releasing this power to the universe for the fulfillment of your desires. Signs from New Year angels include bells ringing at odd times, seeing or receiving new, innovative items, being given a gift with the number of the new year (2014), and baby related items (no kidding).
Today’s Challenge –– Yesterday we worked with the concept of “As Above”. Today we work with “So Below”. Clear out junk, dirt, clutter, good stuff from under tables, beds, closet floors, cupboards, etc. This allows chi (energy) to move freely and removes pockets of negative energy. What is in the physical, is reflected in the astral. A dirty, cluttered, stinky, smelly environment allows negativity to grow in the field around you — the field that directly affects your mental and spiritual health. Empower this field with positive thoughts and cleanly habits and your life will improve exponentially! Once you have completed this task, walk around your living area and tidy up anything that managed to bounce out of hand in the last week. Make note of the bigger projects that you didn’t quite finish and set a future goal for yourself to take care of those things. Finally, take the time to congratulate yourself on a job well done and be sure to give yourself a reward! Go to the movies, buy that “thing” you always wanted, or promise yourself (and keep it) that from now on you will take time for personal joy rather than ignore your needs. It is okay to get that special item or enjoy that unique experience — really! I think I want to go rock climbing with my daughter.
Summary: The stage is set for an amazing new year! Over the last thirty-one days we’ve worked with angelic energy in a variety of ways. We’ve also kept in tune with the daily astrological energies — particularly the moon in the signs and the days of the week. By knowing what sign the moon is in each day, Spirit has given us a temporary map of the emotional timbre of what we may experience. The moon in the signs — such a powerful tool — is often ignored by the whole of society; yet — here it is — an amazing head’s up of what type of opportunity we have available to us AND ideas on how to use these energies to improve our lives. Today we made a simple spell bag using our intuition and a Spirit Walk. You may wish continue the practice of a Spirit Walk around future new or full moon times.
