“Rest and be thankful.”
~ William Wordsworth
At the beginning of every month, I discuss the energies and gifts of the month ahead and how we can best use them to make our lives satisfying, meaningful and productive. I also choose a card to support the energies of the month. The deck I am using this year is The Good Tarot by Colette Baron-Reid, and December’s card is PAGE OF EARTH.
Congratulations on having made it through this intense year of shift, change and foundations. After the busy and bold year that 2019 has been, December cuts a different pace. You’ll feel a need to return to the Earth, figuratively and literally.
December supports re-wilding yourself – by spending time in the company of trees and rivers, of oceans and mountains, with animals as companions and just the most important people in your life at your side.
December calls you to sink down into the loving arms of the earth and rest a while. Sit together around a campfire or share a meal with friends and neighbours.
Cuddle up on the couch with a good book. Watch your favourite movies. Snuggle.
Stand under a wide sky and watch the clouds pass by, feel the sun on your skin and the wind in your hair. Get up high and look out over the world. Rest with a strong tree or boulder at your back. Remember and honour your connection to nature and history and all things.
This month supports connection to rituals and traditions. If you don’t have any, start some of your own! You’ll feel your Ancestors and Loved Ones who’ve crossed over strongly around you this month, sharing their love and support with you.
You’re never alone – you come from love and a long line of family members stretching way back before you, and all of that energy and love is inherent in every cell of your body. Know that you are deeply loved.
Rest well in December. It’s a month to complete things and stand back, waiting. It’s a month for retreat, relaxation and regrouping. Leave anything new until next month now. Busyness can wait. Planning can wait. It can all wait. What matters most this month is recharging your batteries and reconnecting with yourself and the people and places most special to you.
Best crystals this month? – Smoky Quartz & Larimar
Smoky Quartz connects you to the earth, and is grounding, balancing, healing, protective and shielding. It opens you to greater possibilities and a larger vision for yourself and your dreams, and for the wider world.
Larimar gifts tranquility, harmonising body and soul. It relieves stress and nurtures the body and emotions. It also connects you to the plant and animal kingdoms and the earth’s Nature Spirits and Ancients.
Essential oils to support your journey?
Sokli and I have an essential oil recipe for you this month called ‘Rest and integrate’.This recipe provides powerful emotional healing and support, while moving you into a state of deeper relaxation, connection, intuition and compassion for self and others. It will help you to integrate the lessons of 2019 without taking on the trauma of those lessons. Use the recipe to create a heavenly personal perfume (remember to add to a base oil such as fractionated coconut and then put in a roller ball bottle to use all month) or diffuser scent OR use any of the individual oils on their own or in combination this month.
Rest and Integrate
- 1 drop Vetiver, Cedarwood or Arbor Vitae
- 2 drops Lavender
- 2 drops Geranium
- 2 drops Neroli
- 1 drop Frankincense
- 1 drop Cypress
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
Review 2019 And Make 2020 A Powerful Year Of Growth
Are you ready to learn from the year that has been, put 2019 behind you, and prepare for the year ahead?
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 in early December 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.

I’d like to extend an invitation to you to come join me inside my free online community. I’ve recently created a private Facebook group so we can come together to share our spiritual journey, and where I can better support you to grow your intuitive abilities and begin to feel more comfortable with managing yourself and thriving as a sensitive, empathic, intuitive or psychic soul. There are free online study units you can access, and regular live on-line events. I’m also planning some big group meditations and Lightworker activities for you to join in with, if it feels right for you.
This group is a place for all spiritual journeymakers to hang out, to share experiences, to have a safe and supportive community, and to send energy and light out into the world.

It’s only a new group, but already we have a wonderful sense of community and support. I know you’ll fit right in.
December energies call your attention back to what matters – nature, your own wellbeing, your loved ones, and replacing stress with relaxation and recharging.
Stay tuned on the blog, and in our Facebook group, as I share tips this month for slowing down, reconnecting and honouring your Ancestors and the Earth.
Ben and I arrived in Hong Kong last night, for a six week holiday with a little work thrown in. We’ll be travelling through Asia and I’ll update you on that too, when I’ve caught up on my sleep. Blogging times may be a little sporadic due to sleep cycles and finding good internet, but know my team and I will get posts to you to the best of our ability.
Our farm’s had a little rain, and we’ve got our fingers crossed for more!
Biggest love and hugs, Nicole xx
