Great Release Challenge – 22 — Saturday by Silver RavenWolf copyright 2012
Congratulations! You are one third of the way through this year’s Great Release Program! Three extra gold stars for you if you have managed to release at least one thing each day – five gold stars if you have followed the program and done other tasks!
We started from without, because sometimes we just get stuck in life. Stresses can bog us down, loss can bring lethargic behavior. On occasion we just feel like we can’t go any further.
But you can!
By cleaning, clearing, de-cluttering, giving away, trashing – all this outer stuff changes the inner you. As within, so without. As without, so within. The fact that this program even interested you means that you are willing to change your circumstances to make your world a better place. I honor you!
Mental/Spiritual Challenge: Our first task for today is to go through the house and empty all the trash. Yes, I know you’ve been keeping up with this; but, let’s just make a run through. On your mark, get set…go!
Excellent! Our next challenge is to write for three minutes – What is Stuck in My Life Right Now. You can choose small or large issues, just let your fingers flow across that keyboard or let the pencil glide across the paper. No punctuation is necessary, just let it go!
All done? Beautiful! Read over what you have written. Burn the paper or delete what you’ve written on the computer. Get up and go through the house looking for physical items that are stuck. Did you start a project and just let it sit there while you’ve worked around it? Move it to a different location. Did someone bring something into the house and keep telling you that they are going to put it away, and then never did (that happens a lot here). Put it away. Yes, I know it is pissing you off; but, today, put it away anyway, then clear that area with bells, your jingle jar, incense or even perfume. Look for any and all things that are stuck, particularly those that landed in their places before we began the program. Items that you cleaned around, dusted around, or walked around thinking you would get to that later. By moving the outer, we move our thoughts on the inner.
Your third mental/spiritual challenge today is to set up a Sweet Altar that will remain in place for the next seven days. The Sweet Altar is designed only for things like good health, good fortune, happiness, joy, love, etc. Everything on it should scream “Joy! Joy! Joy”. Items on this altar can include a bowl of sugar, sweet fruits (which should be changed every 24 hours), pictures of happiness, colors that make you feel good. The altar should also have a white candle (for activation) and a bowl of clear water that you will change every day. Each day you will greet the Sweet Altar like it is an old friend. As you maintain the altar, think positive thoughts. Repeat bright affirmations like, “My life is filled with positive abundance and all my needs are met,” or whisper sweet words “Love, Happiness, Joy, Compassion, Smiles, Unity…etc.” Let us all know how this type of altar affects your life in the next seven days. Today’s Physical Challenge – Concentrates on your vehicle and if you don’t have one, on your silverware drawer (think of how you might upcycle those items – I’ve seen windchimes, jewelry, and other interesting items made out of silverware.) For your vehicle, should you have one, get rid of the trash, wash the windows, and vacuum if you can. Make sure the tire pressure is good, that everything works properly, and that you have emergency items in the trunk. Finally, make sure your insurance and registration paperwork is where you need them to be in case you must present them. I personally know three people that live in their cars as much as they live in their houses or apartments. If this is you, today is the day to declutter. If you are driving around surrounded by junk that is definitely the experiences you are going to have in life – moving toward junk and getting stuck there.
