“ Live simply, so that others may simply live. ”
~ Mother Theresa
January is a month for planning, and for becoming clear about what matters to you. It’s a month for prioritising, honouring your heart and putting routines and acts of self-care into place for the year ahead. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card Simplicity brings us.
This week we’re reminded that what we focus on multiplies in 2019. We can focus on our problems or we can focus on solutions. We can focus on what we lack or what we already have. And in every situation, Simplicity guides us to choose a less complicated and simpler life. So much of our life is crammed with stuff, and with busy-ness. No wonder most adults (and sadly so many children too) feel overwhelmed by their day-to-day lives. This week look to where you can let go of commitments and obligations that make your days over-full. Look for where you can simplify your possessions and your spaces too – both at work and at home.
Create some breathing space for yourself. Clean your living spaces and your work spaces. Clutter distracts and de-energises us.
As we move into better alignment with our inner truth and soul direction, thanks in part to this fabulous lunar eclipse energy, Simplicity encourages us to strip back our days, to find some space for ourselves and our loved ones and for the activities that rejuvenate and nourish us.
Some of the best things in life truly are free – friendship, laughter, a walk on the beach, playing with your kids or pets, curled up with a good book or watching a sunrise. Simplicity urges us to make room for those things this week.
Supportive crystals this week?
Green Jade (pictured) works with your Heart Chakra to bring balance and integration of Body, Mind and Spirit. It is positive and nurturing, strengthening self-worth. Citrine supports your Solar Plexus Chakra and sense of identity. It is a stone of abundance, clearing blocks of low self-worth and creating flow. Red Jasper is a stone for mental, physical and emotional rejuvenation. Deeply grounding, it helps you connect to your heart and your truth and encourages a sense of safety. Turquoise encourages empathy, compassion and the ability to slow down and stay grounded.
Helpful essential oils?
Mandarin essential oil is supportive this week. It reduces anxiety, promotes calm and helps us to relax. It also uplifts and re-inspires us
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
Extra Support For Your Year
Guided Meditation Bundle
Need some support to work with the current Lunar Eclipse energies? I have a free meditation and some rituals here.
I’ve also bundled together four powerful guided downloadable meditations and created a companion workbook to support you as you work with these celestial energies. The Stardust Connection Meditation Bundle will help you to connect with and explore Earth Energies, Ancestor Energies, your Solar Plexus energies and personal power, and the Stardust Energies. There is over an hour’s worth of Guided Meditations and a 38-page workbook. The workbook holds specific instructions for using the four guided meditations, as well as journalling activities and reflection/awareness exercises.
The material in the Stardust Connection Meditation Bundle can be used at any time over the next four years, and beyond. My intention with this bundle is to help you become confident in your direction, your intuition, and your contribution to the unfolding history of the world and humanity. To access the bundle or to learn more about it go to my store or click on this link.
Go gently this week, simplify where you can, and remember to take some time for yourself and what matters to you.
Lots of love, Nicole ❤ xoxo
PS: Monday’s oracle card, ‘Simplicity’, is from the Peace Oracle. I use any cards shown as a prompt for channelled messages and my own own intuitive wisdom, so my take is sometimes quite different to the meaning found in a book.
