A friend is a gift you give yourself.Robert Louis Stevenson
So here we are – Christmas. What a year 2020 has been. Let’s take a moment and give thanks – because we made it, we’re still here, and that’s worth celebrating.
Christmas is a joyful time for some, and a trying time for others. I wanted to acknowledge that, and to remind you that there is always a place here at my table for you. I’m sending you love this Christmas, and remembering you in my thoughts, prayers and meditations.
Now, come sit down with me. Let me pour you a cup of tea while I tell you how glad I am to have you in my life. I’m so grateful to have you as part of our community as we share this journey of life together. Thank you!
Once again I have created a Christmas oracle for you. The very first one I ever posted was The Healing Power of Flowers and Fairy Blessings. We offered a selection of flowers for you to choose from, and each flower came with a message – a mini-reading if you will. It was so well received that I’ve been creating oracles for you ever since.
Today I’m pleased to offer you another of my Magical Oracles! This time, I’d like you to choose the Christmas Gift that appeals to you the most. Then take your time to unwrap it and receive its message and blessings for you.
Instructions for using today’s post
Scroll down through the following Christmas Gift images and then let yourself come back to the one you are most drawn to.
When you have chosen your gift, scroll further down for your oracle message. Trust that what you most need to know is exactly what you shall choose.
Wherever you are, and whatever your faith and beliefs, I wish you peace today and for the days ahead. I wish for you love, and joy in your heart. Know that you matter to me. You’re in my daily prayers and meditations – you’re not alone, because I am with you daily, thinking of you and sending you love.
No matter what may come in the year ahead, I am holding the intention that 2021 be a year that is emotionally satisfying for you, and which is filled with love, kindness and deep meaning. Merry Christmas!
All my love, Nicole xx

♥ Your Gift’s Message ♥
Each Christmas Gift has a message for you for 2021. I have also selected a crystal to best support the message and energies of your chosen gift. You could wear or hold this crystal, pop it in your pocket, under your pillow or beside your bed. The Power Word is a word to remind yourself of the quality you most need and that you are strongly attracting right now. You can turn it into your own personal mantra by saying “I choose ___________ ” (insert your Power Word). Your Magical Healing Environment is a place or activity you’ll find supportive and healing.
1.Silver Deer – Emerging Into Light You’re coming into a time of great change and shift, and all of it for your own best outcomes and results. All of those ideas and dreams need to be given light and space so that they can grow into something tangible in 2021. It’s time for you to shine! It’s a wonderful year ahead. Be brave and keep going. Don’t be afraid to make BIG changes. It’s your year for that. And all of this change will lead to a whole new way of being in the world. ♥ Best Crystal – Ametrine (or an Amethyst and a Citrine) ♥ Power Word – Transformation ♥ Magical Healing Environment – Quiet time in nature or spaces that nurture and inspire you. Nature walks, ocean swims, watching the snow or rain fall as you sit inside drinking a warm drink with your journal by your side, being in an art gallery or favourite cafe, a museum or a beautiful garden. Let yourself have time for the inspiration inside you to rise up and be heard.
2. Golden Stars – Healing Blessings The Golden Stars Gift heralds major lasting healing and improvements in your physical and emotional well-being in 2021. You’ll be able to tune in to the wisdom of your body, and will naturally begin to prefer the foods, exercise and other support that best suit your individual needs. You’ll feel a resurgence in energy and mental clarity over the months ahead. You’ll become stronger and increasingly comfortable in your own skin. This newfound health will become the foundation for so many other breakthroughs and advances in your life. ♥ Best Crystal – CARNELIAN ♥ Power Word – TRANSFORMATION ♥ Magical Healing Environment – Fresh Air to fill your lungs, to energise you with the sun and healing vibrations of the natural environment, and to get blood pumping through your body as you move around. Resting and meditating in nature is fabulous for you too!
3. Orbs of Light – Bountiful Blessings You are coming into a time of deeper connection, deeper knowing, and deeper intuition. It’s a powerful year ahead for you – one of mystical events and blessings that make every corner of your life feel touched by magic. As you open to your intuitive gifts give yourself some breathing space to contemplate the bigger questions in your life. Make time for reading, meditation and journalling. Expect a bigger connection to God, your Guides and Angels and your own Wise Self. Expect answers to those big questions, and a clarity about your way forward. All is well. ♥ Best Crystal – LABRADORITE ♥ Power Word – BECOME ♥ Magical Healing Environment – Sacred Spaces or alone time. Churches and temples, parks, sitting under old trees, your meditation corner, a library or a quiet corner of the house when no-one else is home.
4. Natural Beauty – Wisdom Blessings This year is fabulous for all forms of learning and study, and for self-development. A year to deepen wisdom, and to expand your mind. A year to master skills. A year for philosophy and deep thinking. A year to truly understand who you are and why you are here. A year that shows you where your life is headed. A year where you will find a deep sense of connection to a path forward or a way to be of service in using your talents and gifts. A year of finding your calling ♥ Best Crystal – LAPIS LAZULI ♥ Power Word – WISDOM ♥ Magical Healing Environment – Time for thinking, studying and learning. Libraries, online courses, universities and schools, mastermind groups, workshops and conferences will work well for you this year. Setting up a study or writing space at home will be useful. Find time for long walks in nature, and for meditation too.
5. Happy Santa – Reconnection and Love 2021 brings you back into the flow of life again after too much time on your own. A time to slow down and simplify, a time to connect or reconnect with friends and family, and to make new relationships. A social year, that is enjoyable and meaningful. This is a year all about relationships, connection and enjoyment of everyday life. A nourishing and enjoyable year that sees you develop or deepen relationships that will last the rest of your life. ♥ Best Crystal – RUBY IN ZOISITE ♥ Power Word – HEARTSPACE ♥ Magical Healing Environment – Anywhere you can spend time with people you love and doing things you love. Coffee with friends, weekend picnics, holidays away, date nights, dinner parties, making music, making art, making love, family time, reunions, travel and socialising – all of these are good for you this year.
6. Trolley of Wonders – Inspiration and Blessed Creation This is a powerful year of creative practice and self-expression for you. This could be renovating your home, writing a book, starting art classes, or putting the things you have made out into the world for others to buy or appreciate. It’s a year for working from your heart, and pouring your heart and soul into everything you do. A year to blossom your creative and life direction, and to deepen your appreciation of your unique individuality and gifts. ♥ Best Crystal – SUNSTONE ♥ Power Word –CREATIVITY ♥ Magical Healing Environment – Your studio, office, workspace or project area. This year you need a combination of inspiration and dedication. Be inspired by other artists or innovators. Take classes. Learn and then stretch yourself in the application of that learning. Spend time creating/making/designing and working on creative projects too. Dedicate yourself to your art or projects. Make them a priority in 2021 and watch how your life changes!
7. Sparkly Gifts – Levelling Up In Love and Life! Life is too short to settle for second best. In your job, in your relationships, in your living environment. In 2021 it’s time to let your life level up. Don’t stay in situations or relationships where you are not happy and fulfilled. Don’t stay friends with people (or family!) who put you down or treat you badly. Value yourself! If you’re in a relationship talk together about your future and where your life is headed so you can move towards those dreams together. Get help if your relationship is in trouble – whether that is counselling to stay together or to exit the relationship. Be discerning about your life and reward yourself with things that matter deeply to you. For those of you seeking love, set your sights high and know that this is the year you can make your romantic dreams come true. ♥ Best Crystal – TIGER EYE ♥ Power Word – ABUNDANCE ♥ Magical Healing Environment – Change. Change can be a force for good. Plan out your future, a future that you’ll love. Spend time thinking about what positive changes you can make in your life and know that the Universe is supporting you to do so.
8. Simply Wonderful – Sanctuary Blessings What’s needed for you to have a great year in 2021 is a sense of sanctuary – a place where you can feel safe, protected and nurtured. A place where you can be yourself and express yourself. It might be your bedroom, your study, your altar, your backyard. It might be your writing space or your office. It might be your entire home. It needs to be clean. It needs to be comfortable. It needs to make your heart feel glad. It needs to be a space that reflects who you are and what you love. Move if you have to. And if the mess is inside you, get help with that. Do whatever it takes to bring yourself back to a place of inner peace and calm. From that place of sanctuary you’ll see miracles unfold for you in the year ahead. ♥ Best Crystal – SNOWFLAKE OBSIDIAN ♥ Power Word – SANCTUARY ♥ Magical Healing Environment – Home (whatever that means to you). Create a space that allows you to feel safe, comfortable, supported and surrounded by beauty and meaning. Start with one small corner. Simple is fine. De-clutter. Make space for rest and new growth.
