day30

Fix-It Day!

2015 Great Release Program
Day 30- December 30 2015
by Silver RavenWolf

Every day you must throw or give something away!

Wednesday

3rd Quarter Moon in Virgo (Closure)

Mercury Hour for Virgo Energy
Mercury Hour for the Ruler of the Day

This Week’s Theme:  Peace Within – Closure

The Foundation —  Begin your day with the Braucherei Morning cleansing and empowerment exercise (please view first post of the program ).

This Week’s Theme — Closure!

Things forgotten, tasks left unfinished, projects begun and set aside…all these open things, even though they are small, can ramp up the stress level in our lives.  This week, our last of the challenge, our focus is on completion of these small things before the New Year begins and Mercury turns retrograde on Tuesday, the 5th of January.  If you are having trouble with any of these closures — put your hands on the object, project, thing, etc., breathe deeply and use these words (or others of your choosing) before you dig in:

Peace with the Gods
Peace with Nature
Peace Within.

Continue to use the Five Rays of Joy exercise given on On Day 12 .

If you like, continue to use the Peace Prayer in your daily activities (located in Day 2 of the program) and and Peace in the Moment visualization.  When you have finished with this week’s theme exercise, move on to today’s fun activities!

Silver’s Notes:  After today, only ONE day left in our Challenge!

We are almost there!  Just one more day!  You’ll love the easy lemon magick for your challenge today!

Magickal Challenge

Lemons!  Lemons! Lemons!  The marvelous power of the Lemon!

Lemons are ruled by the Moon and are of the Water Element.  Lemongrass and Lemon Verbena are ruled by Mercury and fall under the Element of Air.

 

“The term “pomander” can be for the actual scented material itself or for the container that contains the scented material. The container could have been made of gold or silver. Pomander can be a bag containing fragrant herbs. Pomanders were an early form of aromatherapy.” — Wikipedia

I have three workings you may enjoy doing today — the first is the simple Lemon Pomander — all you need is a fresh lemon, sequins of your choice, a ribbon, and straight pins.  Cover the lemon with the pins and sequins.  Add the ribbon so that you can hand the decorated lemon.  Allow to air dry.  As the lemon dries, negativity is banished from the home.  Lemons are also thought to bring good luck.  This is a fun craft to do with your family, and perfect for ringing in the New Year with the soothing aroma of lemon!  You can empower the drying lemon for good luck, banishing negativity, removing illness from the home, etc. — the working is entirely up to you.

Removing A Problem From Your Life — is our second working with a lemon.

lemonbanishment

Simply write the issue you want to banish from your life on a slip of paper, fold the paper away from you, and insert it into the lemon.  You can add additional banishment herbs in the slit or write a chant or charm on the skin of the lemon with marker.  As the lemon dries out — your problem withers and dies.  When the lemon is completely dry, throw it in the trash.  If the lemon begins to rot before it is fully dried, remove it immediately from the living environment.  Sometimes the rotted fruit can indicate that the issue is decomposing quickly.  If the problem is still ongoing and the fruit is rotten — repeat the working until either the problem is gone, or the fruit dries without rotting.  Some individuals put the lemon in the refrigerator to prevent the rotting process — this is entirely up to you.

Good Fortune Lemon Working

boilinglulu

The third Lemon Power working is something you are already familiar with — boil sliced lemons on the stove for twenty minutes in blessed water.  As the steam escapes into the air for the first five minutes — chant away the negativity. Cover mixture and allow to boil for an additional 15 minutes.   Let the mixture cool.  Strain out the herbs.  Pour the liquid on your doorstep to banish negativity, prevent evil from entering the home, and welcoming good fortune for the coming new year!  You can also add a pinch of salt to the water and refrigerate, if you like, and use in healing workings to asperge either a person or massage into healing petitions.

Your second magickal challenge today is to study the Mannaz/Man/Madr Rune.   How do you think you can you apply this rune in your life?

This Week’s Theme:  I Celebrate!

The Foundation —  Begin your day with the Braucherei Morning cleansing and empowerment exercise (please view first post of the program ).

This Week’s Theme — Celebration of Self!

This week’s theme is Celebration of the Self!  Each day you will say aloud five things that are good about yourself.  That’s it.  That is all you have to do — oh, and then…smile.

Continue to use the Five Rays of Joy exercise given on On Day 12 .

If you like, continue to use the Peace Prayer in your daily activities (located in Day 2 of the program) and and Peace in the Moment visualization.  When you have finished with this week’s theme exercise, move on to today’s fun activities!

Silver’s Notes:  Only 5 More Days!

Last week someone asked how to deal with people living in your house that are not directly related to you.  In a later post, the individual discussed good energy steps they took to help relieve the problem, and identified that they knew the hoarding was all about “control” — attempting to control the other people in the house by holding sway over everyone’s space with their junk.

In our community, house blessing rituals and creating sacred space are an integral part of our magickal activities.  We understand that these activities are temporary, and that we may need to do something like a house blessing at least once a month, more if there are problems or sickness in the home.

Over the years I have learned that a house is not an inanimate thing — it has a soul of sorts, and at times, seems to have a mind of its own.  Its survival is dependent upon its inhabitants.  Although “feeding” off people isn’t exactly the right concept, like a pet, it needs the energy of humans to lessen the impact of decay.  The best possible situation is when the humans and the house are in balance.  House cleansings and blessings help to bring this balance about; however, if you have a human in the home that is negative, extremely ill, etc., he or she will corrupt this balance on a daily basis, and in turn, the imbalance will affect everyone living there.

In an earlier post, we talked about house spirits — fey from the outside coming in.  In this post we are going to take a moment to look at the house as a living being — call it Jane, or Hubert, or Alex, or whatever– and the health of his or her heart.  You can tell if Jane or Alex is suffering simply by observing how many times things in the house break, how fast the house gets dirty (barring the normal family living), and how you feel in different rooms as you walk through.

Years ago I discovered that my old house had a will of its own by accident.  We were having a tough time, I couldn’t pay for the heating, and I sat sobbing on the stairs at the muddle we were in.  Finally, I looked up and I said, “House?  If you can hear me?  We are in big trouble.  I know you are old, but could you please try and hold yourself together a little tighter so that I can catch up on the heating bill?”  I laughed at my own stupidity, dried my tears, sighed a particularly huge sigh, and went on with the business of the day.

Damned if the heating bill next month was only half the usual amount.

Hmmmm.

I went back into the stairwell and thanked the house for holding himself together.  From that day forward, I talked to that house.  I told it what the family needed, and always why.  I told it how I felt about things.  I rewarded it when good fortune came through.  In the end, I promised it that the next owner would do what I could not — and would give it the face lift and repairs that it deserved.

That actually happened.

Magickal Challenge

Your magickal challenge today is to talk to your living space, whether it be a house or even an apartment building.  If things are really bad, you may also like to perform a ritual to Heal the House.  If you like, set up a small house altar and thank your home for providing shelter.  Talk to the house.  I guarantee, in some way, it will talk back — you just need to listen.

Your second magickal challenge today is to study the Hagalaz/Haegl Rune.  How can you apply this rune in your life?  Please be advised that this is a powerful rune.  Don’t mess with it lightly.  However, it is also the Rune of Reward for your hard work.  Be respectful and you will be amazed at its power.
