There is freedom waiting for you,
On the breezes of the sky,
And you ask “What if I fall?”
Oh but my darling,
What if you fly?Erin Hanson
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 Native Spirit Oracle by Denise Linn, and December’s card is FREEDOM HORSE.
After the hard year we’ve all had, you’ll need room to run this month!
If you’ve been feeling overwhelmed with life or work, make sure to take a mental health break.
You need time for yourself this month – to recharge and find a deeper connection to yourself. That way you can come back to the world refreshed and ready to deal with what’s in front of you.
Whatever makes your heart sing, you need more of that in December.
If your calling is business don’t be afraid to pour your heart and soul into it, even if everyone else is out dancing or enjoying holiday drinks.
If you crave open spaces pack your bag and go.
Maybe you want time with family and friends, or solitude filled with books and cups of tea.
Perhaps you crave empty beaches, long walks and the wind in your hair.
Don’t think about it, do it!
Freedom can also be about making the big decisions.
Perhaps it’s time to go gluten-free, to commit to a new direction, to leave the relationship, to change jobs, to start your own business, to get that life-changing surgery you’ve been postponing.
With everything you do, consider if it is contributing to your life becoming more sustainable or less sustainable. Favour sustainable, over everything else.
What can you do to create freedom for yourself or others this month?
Remember to lend a hand where you can, if that feels right for you.
Freedom is also about expressing yourself – so use your clothes, your living space, your music, your art and your choices of activity to do that.
Give yourself permission to live life your way!
As we travel through December my team and I will be busy packing the last of the crystals, malas and Planners for our members, and getting a host of new courses ready for our Journeymaker Academy in 2021. I can’t wait to share them with you!

Just a quick heads-up too that I will be closing our office between December 24 and January 4, to give my hardworking team a good break. (I’ll still be blogging, and popping onto Facebook every now and again, so you won’t be completely deserted, but I’ll be the only one in the office, and only in the smallest of ways.) We’ll all be taking some time to spend with family and loved ones, and to rest and refresh in these supportive December energies after the crazy year that has been 2020. 2021 will also have its challenges, and we’ll be here to support you for that!
Whatever you have planned for December, take time to slow down, to reconnect with nature, and with loved ones. Remember the power of mindfulness, compassion, kindness and gratitude.
Much love, Christmas Crackers and fruit cake, Nicole xx
