“It’s like everyone tells a story about themselves inside their own head. Always. All the time. That story makes you what you are. We build ourselves out of that story.”
~ Patrick Rothfuss
Firstly an apology – our overzealous team sent out an unfinished draft as our Monday blog. The correct one is below. Please read it – it’s a really important energy for the week ahead, and one that will be helpful and supportive for you.
November is an expansive month of heart-opening, joy, progress, breakthroughs and success. It’s a month for emotional healing, sharing your thoughts and feelings, and of celebrating how far you’ve come or how much you’ve survived. Keep November’s energy in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card CAMPFIRE brings us.
The Message of CAMPFIRE
The image in the card above represents an Australian Aboriginal cultural depiction of people sitting around a campfire. In every culture we find this same tradition – people coming together to sit around a fire and talk, to share stories, to laugh, to cry, to heal, to process, to connect, to know each other better.
CAMPFIRE shows us that this week’s energies are all about sharing, connection, relationships and togetherness.
It’s important to share your story. Don’t be afraid to stand in your truth, to own what you are feeling, what you have experienced, what you have learned, what you know to be true for you.
It’s also important to listen to the people around you. Ask them about themselves. Ask your children how they are feeling. Ask your partner what’s on their mind. Talk to your neighbour, the man in the coffee who always sits opposite you, the person who serves you in the grocery store. Talk the time to actually hear and acknowledge their response.
CAMPFIRE also acknowledges that there is a lot of hurting and worry and grief in the world right now. It’s a time for us all to come together around the campfire and acknowledge those hurts and fears and worries. It’s a time to speak for ourselves, and for those among us who have no voice. It’s a time to be aware of the earth as we sit in circle, and acknowledge the ground beneath us, the air around us, the animals and plants who are our companions and the sky above us. It’s a time to feel back into our connections to each other and all things.
Supportive crystals this week?
Lapis Lazuli enhances the ability to receive psychic messages and insights and connects you strongly to your Angels, Guides and other energetic beings. Plus it literally LOOKS like a piece of the night sky! Pink Kunzite is a gentle but powerful heart activation stone allowing for profound emotional insights, and helping you to identify, forgive and move past limited and self-critical thinking. Smoky Quartz opens you to greater possibilities and a larger vision for yourself and your dreams, and for the wider world. Snowflake Obsidian will help you to acknowledge, process and release grief, trauma and hurt, and to begin to find empowerment through positive action.
Helpful Essential Oils
Oils that support open and honest communication are what’s needed right now, so Sandalwood, Bergamot, Basil and Cypress are my choices for the week ahead.
Sandalwood links the heart and mind, and supports you to speak your truth and to process your feelings with honesty and compassion for yourself and others.
Bergamot helps you to find a positive, no matter what the situation, and to transition from indecision to action.
Basil enables you to think clearly and to solve problems with wisdom and a higher perspective.
Cypress acts like a broom to sweep out the emotional debris of difficult times, to clear your head and allow you to think clearly again. It is also supportive of your Throat Chakra and speaking up for yourself and others.
Use these oils on their own or in combination in your diffuser.
Make 2020 A Powerful Year Of Growth
My much-loved Planner is now in its fifth year of production, and 2020 is the most beautiful and content-rich book we’ve ever produced. This 368-page book is a spiritual toolkit disguised as a diary & planner. Learn to tap into your intuition, honor your heart’s path and calling using skills like meditation, mindfulness, journaling, self-care, intuitive card reading, energy work, and much more.
There are 52 pages of rituals, information and activities to start your year right. Read about the energies of 2020 and how to make the most of them. The Planner is then divided into Quarters, each with a theme to support you. Each month starts with guidance for the energies ahead, and suggestions for crystals, gemstones and essential oils. After each Quarter you’ll find a review to help you learn, grow and plan.
To support your purchase there is also a Free Online Course, available December 1, 2019 in our new Journeymaker’s Academy. Learn with me as I show you how to review 2019 and learn from the year, choose a project and habit for 2020, do a 10 card tarot or oracle card spread to guide you for the year ahead, and then create a plan for 2020 that is workable and supportive. No prior experience is needed. I’ll teach you everything you need to know with the free course that accompanies your Planner. You’ll learn to work with our monthly money tracker, Sunday planning sessions, weekly tarot or oracle card, habit and goal setting, reviews, coping skills, lightwork, meditations, affirmations.
And for every Planner sold, ten trees will be planted, to give back to Mother Earth.
