“Vulnerability is the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, empathy, and creativity. It is the source of hope, empathy, accountability, and authenticity. If we want greater clarity in our purpose or deeper and more meaningful spiritual lives, vulnerability is the path.”Brené Brown
February is a month for standing in your truth and letting others see you as you are, for making imperfect starts, for trusting in synchronicities and Universal Guidance, and for acknowledging our connection to the Earth.
Keep that in mind as we explore the gifts that the oracle card EFFICIENCY brings us this week. EFFICIENCY is from the Sacred Earth Oracle by Toni Carmine Salerno & Leela J Williams.
There is a tender place in all of us – a place that is good and honest and true. It’s the essence of who you are – a complex and unique combination of personality, talents, ideas and beliefs, knowingness, life experiences and wisdom. It’s the person you keep locked away, for fear of being judged, rejected, humiliated, laughed at or abandoned.
We learn not to say the thing we believe, when it goes against others in our family or workplace. We learn to hide our spiritual practices and intuitive abilities, or our love of art, or the way we dance in the dark house when no-one is watching, or the other many things that make us who we are. We do our best to keep ourselves safe, to keep our jobs safe or our position within a relationship safe. We fly under the radar and those parts of us we fear to express become lost, or buried, or well hidden, sometimes even from ourselves.
Instead of living from that tender place, most of us live from efficiency.
We know the right thing to say or wear. The right way to be. We dial down our individuality and do our best to ‘fit in’, to please or at least to not cause offence. It’s not all deliberate. Who ever enjoys being bullied or laughed at, or worse? It’s a safety thing, because all of us have a need to be loved and accepted, and to belong.
EFFICIENCY‘s message is simple:
It’s time to be yourself. It’s time to show your face. It’s time to live with courage, from a place of vulnerability, open-hearted to the world. It’s time to let that tender-hearted place come into the light so it can bloom, and integrate and elevate you into the person you came to this world to be.
Of course, you need to go at your own pace, and in a way that is safe for you, but allow yourself to be uncomfortable, vulnerable, and human.
There is more strength in you than you yet know, and you came here to be a Peaceful Warrior who anchors Truth and Light. It’s time. Step up. Be you.
There is no bigger gift to the world than for you to live as yourself.
Supportive crystals for the week ahead
Red Jasper is grounding and helps you connect to your heart and your truth. This stone anchors you in courage, and promotes stamina, endurance, focus and determination. It helps to heal suppressed emotions too, especially anger, rage and resentment. Amethyst develops psychic and intuitive connection, and helps you to manifest and become clear about your life path. It is a supportive stone as you make decisions about your direction in life. Mookaite (pictured) is a gently shielding stone that helps you to think clearly and to break patterns of self-criticism and negative thinking. It aids in looking for positive solutions to life’s dilemmas and embracing change.
Helpful Essential Oils
Geranium, Frankincense, Sandalwood, and Lavender work beautifully on their own or in combination this week to help you to tap into awareness, clarity, connection and inner strength this week.
As a blend for your diffuser add two drops of each oil. A drop of each oil in the bath is heavenly too. It’s a great blend to get you out of your head and into your heartspace. It promotes spiritual connection and intuition and is deeply calming.
Freaking out or find yourself absolutely stuck in inertia? Rub a drop or two of Sandalwood over your heart and on the back of your neck to help reconnect Solar Plexus, Heart, and Crown Chakra, bringing you gently into alignment with your personal truth.
Want support this year, to help you learn, grow and evolve?
2020 is here. It’s time. We need you to be a better version of yourself. For you, your family, your community, your country, your planet.
Making positive change and coming into alignment with more of your values and dreams is enough. Never underestimate the ripples of positive change that will flow out from your own life, well lived.
If you have a calling, please don’t ignore that. You chose it for a reason, or it was given to you because you had the power within you to make that dream or calling happen.
Don’t let 2020 slip by the way other years may have.
Are you ready? I can help you to make the most of these opportunities.
A simple place to start is to grab yourself one of the limited remaining copies of my Journeymaker’s Planner to help you navigate 2020 by your own inner compass.

Come join my private paid membership group The Journeymaker Circle
This year I’ll be leading my members on a personal journey of soul growth and self discovery – through webinars, Facebook Lives, tailor-made courses and activities, and a lot of online support from me.
This journey is all about bringing you back into alignment with your soul wisdom, your core energy, and your natural intuitive abilities.
This journey is in addition to all of the resources, courses and activities that are ALREADY within my membership area. It’s part of my commitment to you, to help you to live as your best self and to contribute your positive energies to the planet.
This is a journey specific to the energies of this year, because I am here for my members to help them expand into better, more connected versions of themselves. Selves with less fear and more confidence, selves with less anxiety and more trust, selves with better clarity and direction, so that my members can anchor positive energies and values to help serve humanity and change the way our world is unfolding AND so that they can step into their own power as healers, writers, artists, teachers, lightworkers, parents, business people or whatever else it is that they came to this life to do.
Inside this membership group you’ll also have access to:
- Online courses around a range of metaphysical and practical subjects to help you explore and work with your own intuitive gifts
- A library of videos and webinars
- A library of Guided Meditations
- Access to live Webinars, and the recordings if you can’t make it to the live event
- Access to the kind of online channelled events that I used to run only for my exclusive live retreats
- Powerful group meditations, Lightwork activities, and manifestation rituals
- A Book Club – including an opportunity for you to participate LIVE every fortnight
- Access to my private members-only Facebook Group
- A community of like-minded and supportive souls – a group where many friendships have already been formed, and where you will feel right at home
- A library of material that is growing all the time and that will cater to you whether you are a complete beginner or an advanced practitioner
- Advance notice of my other events, and exclusive pre-launch offers before these events are opened to the general public.
I am passionate about helping you to grow into your best self, because now, more than ever, the world needs awakening souls.
