“What you have to decide… is how you want your life to be. If your forever was ending tomorrow, would this be how you’d want to have spent it? Listen, the truth is, nothing is guaranteed. You know that more than anybody. So don’t be afraid. Be alive.”
Here we are, Lovelies – December! We’ve managed to navigate the big energies of this year. We’re still standing. And the energies of the month ahead will truly help is to enjoy December and the gifts it brings.
December is a month for planning and dreaming, interspersed with fun, curiosity, friendship and celebration. Hooray!
Cards for the Month:
I’ve chosen two cards for December for you: one from Colette Baron-Reid’s Enchanted Map and one from Steven Farmer’s Earth Magic Oracle. Please note I don’t use these cards in a conventional way, but rather as a stimulus for channelled information.
Here is what I have received from each card:
“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much”
~ Helen Keller
Now that you’ve had a year of becoming strong in yourself, of connecting to your creative essence, of living from your truth and from your heart you are well positioned to think about your life unfolding in front of you – what you want to keep, what you want to build on and what you want to change. This month give some thought to that. Journal and explore these things. Let your examination of your life lead to clarity, decisions and a plan for future action.
Include your friends, family and work colleagues in your life planning discussions if that’s relevant for you. In this new era of co-operation, connection and community it’s good to remember that we are not in this journey alone and that some of our strongest decisions will come from that collaborative process of talking, sharing and expanding upon ideas and feelings.
The second card I’ve chosen is Childhood.
“Nourishing yourself in a way that helps you blossom in the direction you want to go is attainable, and you are worth the effort.”
The other gift of this month is the need to celebrate and take pleasure from the life and relationships we have already created. Drop any cynicism and get out of your head and back into your heart. Be childlike in your sense of wonder and enjoyment.
Plan time for that connection with people, with pleasurable activities, with shared adventures and shared tables.
Live! Enjoy! Connect! Share! Look ahead to festivities and adventures beyond this month too.
What life moments can you celebrate or plan for in the months and years ahead?
Any little trips you can make – around the corner or even around the globe? Devote some time to enjoying life, and for finding new things to explore or be inspired by, this month and then next year and beyond. Love and be invested in your life now, while planning for more goodness and meaning as we move towards 2019.
Best crystals this month?
Petrified Wood and Green Aventurine.
Petrified Wood promotes compassion, wonder, curiosity and benevolence. It is a stone for healing old hurts and allowing hope back into your heart. (Don’t you love this pink! The earthy tones of the wood have been enhanced by the mineral manganese as it petrified, turning the wood pink as it became stone)
Green Aventurine helps you to relax into the flow of life, tapping you into the joy
of living and that wonderful feeling of gratitude.
Essential oils to support your journey?
My choice for oils that will support focus, clarity and planning this month are Peppermint, Rosemary and Lemon. Choose one or all of them for your diffuser – they work beautifully together.
For relaxing, enjoying lift and lifting your mood try any of these oils on their own or in combination – Wild Orange, Lavender, Geranium, Frankincense and Cinnamon Bark. Cinnamon gives that lovely spicy Christmassy feel to a blend, helping put your house in the holiday mood.
I’m passionate about essential oils and their capacity to support our wellness journey and our spiritual and emotional wellbeing. If you’d like to know more or want to source the oils I recommend and trust visit this site or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Wishing you a love-filled, satisfying and wonder-full December.
Lots of love, Nicole❤ xoxo
PS – Want a bargain? Today is the last day that my Pre-Order Packs will be up in our shop. We’re already processing and sending out our beautiful Planners, Meditation Malas, Crystals and extra goodies. I’d intended for December 1 to be the day when all of our Christmas and New Year products and membership options went live but yesterday I needed to attend to client and family emergencies and didn’t have a chance to sign off on all our changes. So you can expect them to be up tomorrow. That means you’ll be able to buy the Planner or Mala on their own. Meanwhile, if you put an order in for a pack today you’ll save money AND I’ll throw in a little extra magical surprise with your order. Use this link to check out the packs and to access the shop.
