Wednesday First Quarter Moon in Pisces (Beginnings!)
Ideal Planetary Hour for Magick — Jupiter Hour for Pisces Energy (Based on Classical Astrology) – Mercury Hour for the Ruler of the Day
This Week’s Theme: The Empowerment of Self
The Foundation — Begin your day with the Braucherei Morning cleansing and empowerment exercise (please view first post of the program ).
This Week’s Theme — The Empowerment of Self
On Day 12 you were given the challenge of designing a Five Rays of Joy program tailored just for you– a set of magickal steps you will use each morning as soon as you wake up. This activity is designed to boost your self esteem and magnetize the field around you with positive, uplifting energy. This week, try your best to use your Five Rays of Joy sequence first thing in the morning, and any time you are feeling depressed, stressed, frightened or unhappy. Focus on the positive. Take deep breaths, and if you run into an extremely stressful problem, run your hands under cold water while breathing deeply.
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!
You are now well on your way to completing this year’s Great Release Challenge! How are you feeling? How many stars to you have on your calendar? I still have to get my floors done…just couldn’t get to that one. I better hurry! Our Yule Party is this weekend!
Someone posted that they are having trouble with an area that just keeps filling back up with clutter due to family constantly throwing stuff in that spot. Truly, they are not trying to be mean — it is simply negative patterning. I have some suggestions if you are having this type of problem. De-clutter the area again, and then consider any of the following:
Put a piece of furniture there (or something) that will simply stop the dumping process in that area.
Spray holy water or pass burning sage over the area several times. Is the are in somewhat of a gloomy corner? Try placing a light or a brighter light, in that area.
Use vinegar and tell your family why. Give it a good spray!!! When they try to dump something there, they will smell the vinegar, and hopefully remember that you have told them you are trying to keep that spot clutter free. Of course, if you spray their stuff with vinegar by accident…hmmmm.
Let me know if any of these suggestions work for you.
Today’s Magickal Challenge
Remember the goals I told you to write down earlier in the program? Choose one of those goals and use the information below to change that goal into a number. Then, place that number on your altar along with a number of matching objects — for example if your goal number factors to 8 as in the example below, you could choose 8 herbs, 8 gemstones, or 8 sticks, etc. You might wish to put these in a conjure bag along with the paper that shows how you reached that number. Or, you could simply place 8 candles on your altar, burn them all at once, or one each day. Today’s magick — how to turn a statement into a magick number — gives you the foundation. The enchanting operation you choose to employ is entirely up to you!
The second part of today’s Magickal Challenge is studying the rune Ansuz/ Asa:
How can you incorporate this rune today in your life? Can you couple this rune with your goal number? How will you do that?
Today’s Physical Challenge
Today’s physical challenge is everyone’s favorite! Time to take care of your underwear drawer! Time for mis-matched socks to go (or make them into puppets). Throw out undies with holes and replace with new. Wearing rags next to your body isn’t the best for your self-esteem! No matter how old you are, neat underneath is neat on the outside! And if you go commando? Think of another challenge.
Practice the Peace in the Moment Exercise.
Repeat the Peace Prayer, Star Throw Blessing, and Peace in the Moment exercises if you like.
Practice your personal Five Rays of Joy wake-up program.
Create your goal number using the instructions in today’s post. Use that number in some way on your altar.
Study the Asa/Ansuz Rune. How can you use it in your life?
Organize your underwear drawer! Throw out the ragged ones, the socks without matches, and anything else that doesn’t belong in there! Replace with new when you can.
Do one 3-minute dash!
Check that areas you have de-cluttered. If they are filled back up again? Clean and banish with incense, burning sage, holy water OR vinegar.
Throw out or give one thing away (most important task)
Don’t forget to add the coins to your Joy Jar!
Peace with the Gods Peace with Nature Peace Within
Sleep Well and see you tomorrow!
