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!
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.
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
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?
Fix-it Day! What can be repaired, mended, or fixed in your living environment today? Consider scheduling appointments for those things that you have left slide.
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.
Concentrate on Finishing Any Open Projects
Fix or Mend something that is broken.
Make a Lemon Pomander, Lemon Fluid, or work the Lemon Banishment Spell (or all three). While you are at it, boil lemons on the stove to cleanse the living environment with the steam. When the water cools, pour on your front doorstep.
