You can’t calm the storm, so stop trying. What you can do is calm yourself. The storm will pass.Timber Hawkeye
November energies bring renewed optimism, connection and flow. It’s a month for spiritual pilgrimages, soul work and opportunity. But December is almost here, and with that comes an urge to have more freedom and a readiness to make big decisions.
Keep that in mind as we explore the gifts that this oracle card from the CELTIC LENORMAND brings us this week. The CELTIC LENORMAND, with its beautiful Pagan and Celtic themes, is written by Chloe McCracken and the artwork is by Will Worthington.
The Gifts Of The Week Ahead
My beautiful Guide, Rollo, often reminds me not to spend too much time ‘feeding the chickens’. What he means by that is spending all of my time on low pay-off tasks while I ignore the things that really must get done. It’s easy to get caught up with time-wasters. Be aware of that over the week ahead.
This week you are being prompted not to feed the chickens in your own life. Who and what wastes your time? Limit these things this week. Simplify, and do your best to manage or avoid overwhelm.
What behaviours of yours make you more overwhelmed and less clear? Where can you plan first, and get your priorities in order for the week ahead? Take some time to focus on identifying the most important tasks, and then work on those first. Be strong, and say no to those chickens!
Also, remember that fatigue makes you sloppy and limits your ability to make sound decisions, so catch up on your sleep as a priority. If you’re not calm and rested, everything becomes harder. Star true to your priorities, and protect your precious time and energy.

Supportive crystals this week
Smoky Quartz (pictured) connects you to the earth. It is grounding, balancing, healing, protective and shielding. Larimar 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.
Helpful Essential Oils
This week Sandalwood essential oil will bring you peace, calm and reconnection to your own heart and to what matters most to you. Lemon essential oil will gift you fresh hope and uplift your weary spirit and Ylang Ylang essential oil will rekindle sensuality, tenderness, romance with life and be a healing balm for any kind of emotional burnout. Use them on their own or in combination.
Remember, slow down this week. Treat yourself well. Fill your cup. Breathe, breathe, breathe. Take comfort and strength from the beauty around you. Say no to whatever is grieving you or stressing you. Take a break. You’re no use to yourself or anyone else if you’re on your knees with fatigue, stress and the craziness of a too-busy life.
If you need help to find that balance, or a path back to yourself, grab a copy of my Journeymaker’s Planner for 2021. It has a blueprint within it to help you find your way. Details below.
Make 2021 A Powerful Year Of Healing, Connection and Regrouping
My much-loved Planner is now in its sixth year of production, and 2021 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 2021 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 our Journeymaker’s Academy. Learn with me as I show you how to review 2020 and learn from the year, choose a project and habit for 2021, do a 10 card tarot or oracle card spread to guide you for the year ahead, and then create a plan for 2021 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.

Meanwhile I am going to make sure I get some beach walks in, and some quiet time with my boys this week.
Love, hugs and sand between my toes, Nicole xx
