“Many people lose the small joys in the hope for the big happiness.”
~ Pearl S. Buck
December is a month for rest, reconnection and nurture. It asks that we spend time with those we love, that we slow down, that we connect back into the natural world. Keep that in mind as we explore GUMNUT BLOSSOM and the gifts this card offers us for the week ahead.
Gumnut Blossom’s Message
GUMNUT BLOSSOM‘s message is perfect for us as we move towards Christmas. It’s a simple but important one. Find ways to be content with what you have. Search for the small blessings in your life. Find time for the things that make you happy.
That doesn’t mean you can’t have greater hopes for your life. But when we focus only on what we don’t have we draw more of that negative energy to us, and it makes us unhappier and less magnetic to flow and goodness.
There is beauty all around us, there are miracles and magic – if only we look for them. That’s your challenge this week.
GUMNUT BLOSSOM also urges us to slow down, to live from our hearts and to have gratitude and appreciation for the experiences this life is offering us.
Rest. Reconnect. Recharge. Take a long bath. Go for a walk. Curl up with a book or your favourite movie. Light a candle. Put fresh flowers on the table and clean sheets on the bed. Take time to savour each sip, each bite, each breath, each moment.
Then bring that spirit of gratitude, appreciation and contentment into the new year with you.
Supportive crystals for the week ahead
Smoky Quartz connects you to the earth. It is grounding, balancing, healing, protective and shielding. Larimar (pictured) gifts tranquillity, 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. Green Aventurine helps you to slow down and rediscover joy and pleasure, and Rose Quartz gifts you nurture, self-love and self-compassion.
Essential Oil Support
This week’s oil recipe with bring you calm, contentment and relaxation – perfect for the Christmas Season, which can be stressful, crazy and painful for many, even as it brings joy and reconnection.
Sokli’s Joy To The World Blend

The oils can also be used on their own.
Remember, slow down again this week. Treat yourself well. Fill your cup. Do the things that bring contentment. Breathe, breathe, breathe. Take comfort and strength from the beauty and grace and small wonders around you. Say no to whatever is grieving you or stressing you. And if you can’t say no then at least take a break.
If you need help to find that balance, or a path back to yourself, grab a copy of my Journeymaker’s Planner for 2020. It has a blueprint within it to help you find your way. Details below.
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.

Remember, GUMNUT BLOSSOM calls on you to create moments, minutes, hours and days that bring contentment this week.

Do whatever works for you!
All my love, Nicole xx
