“Civilization is always threatened from below, by patterns of belief and emotion that may once have been useful to our ancestors, but that are useful no longer.”
~ Roger Scruton
“Whereas moral courage is the righting of wrongs, creative courage, in contrast, is the discovering of new forms, new symbols, new patterns on which a new society can be built.”
~ Rollo May
Here’s the oracle card I have chosen this Monday, and my take on the energetic outlook for the week ahead.
‘Morality’ is from the Osho Zen Tarot deck. This card signifies the great importance of the week ahead. It’s a potent time for pattern breaking – both the patterns and limiting mindsets that we have created for ourselves, and for the perpetuated and limiting patterns that have been passed down through our family lines.
Please stop judging yourself and others for past decisions and actions. It’s never helpful, and it holds us tied to thsoe old energies and actions. Instead, seek to recognise limitations, embrace forgiveness, then make different choices which create space for healing and change.
Remember that who and where you’ve been doesn’t have to decide your future, it only informs your past. You’re bigger than your past. And we’re always growing, changing and moving on.
December is a time for reflection, and for sitting in the Supermind. This month we’re encouraged to truly give thought to who we are, where we’ve been, and where we want to go next.
As part of our reflection we’ll be able to see our current blocks and obstacles much more clearly this week. It’s a week that supports our decision to bust through these limits, or simply to start believing in a different story for ourselves and our futures.
We’re reminded to think kindly of ourselves and to come from a place of love and compassion in all that we do, this week and always.
Don’t keep mindlessly buying into the dramas of other people, or of the world. Choose to live with hope and optimism. Use your awareness to create shift and change, starting with yourself.
This is a fabulous week for creating a crystal grid to help release and heal old limiting ancestral patterns of thinking and behaviour. Clearing and healing family lines as 2016 draws to a close will enable us to move into 2017 with a clean slate, and a host of fresh and new possibilities.
I have seen many changes and synchronicities happen after creating such a grid. What matters most is your intention to break patterns, to heal, to be inclusive and to come from a place of love.
If you visit my shop (link at top of this page) you’ll find some downloadable instructions under the ‘Free Stuff’ category to guide you through the process of creating your own crystal healing grid to help close out 2016.
I have also set up an Ancestors and Songlines crystal healing grid here on the farm. If you’d like to be a part of my grid, please pop over to that blogpost, or to my facebook page (click to follow the links) and add your name. I’ll program and dedicate a crystal to you, and then place it within the grid. From today I’ll be posting pictures on Instagram and Facebook of the stones I’ll be dedicating for you. Look out for yours!
If you’d like me to see a picture of your grid, then please tag me with #cauldronsandcupcakesgrid or post to my facebook page and I’d be thrilled to come take a look. <3

Holding you, as always, in my thoughts, prayers and meditations. All my love,
