Usually, when the distractions of daily life deplete our energy, the first thing we eliminate is the thing we need the most: quiet, reflective time. Time to dream, time to contemplate what’s working and what’s not, so that we can make changes for the better.Sarah Breathnach
December energies encourage you to find time for yourself, to rest and renew. It’s a month that brings an urge to have more freedom, and which gifts you 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
This week supports you to rest, rest and rest some more. Rest and reconnect. Do whatever you need to in order to replenish and recharge.
It’s also a week for the kind of contemplation that leads to decisions.
It’s a beautiful week for looking at the year ahead, and consciously choosing to live your life in ways that will be more supportive, sustainable and emotionally satisfying. Think about where you want to create more stability and security in your life. Make a mindful decision to focus on these areas in the year ahead. (Need help with that? My Journeymaker’s Planner helps you map out and work with major projects and life goals. Details on where to buy it are at the bottom of the page.) No need to start on anything yet – just think about it, and decide on some goals for 2021.
You’ll find that the week ahead brings heightened spiritual and psychic awareness. It connects you strongly to your Ancestors, and to the Ancient ways and wisdoms. It’s a week of energy for deepening your connection to nature, family, friends and interests or hobbies that you love. You may feel a new sense of yourself beginning to emerge. Trust that! The new year brings possibilities for change, and you’re ready.

Supportive crystals this week
Pink Opal provides emotional balance, releasing fear and worry, and filling you with a sense of emotional peace. Smoky Quartz keeps you grounded and connected, gifting inner strength and the ability to listen deeply. If you’re feeling completely lost Smoky Quartz helps you get back on your feet again. Amethyst (pictured) helps you to tune in to all forms of spiritual guidance and to make wise decisions. Moonstone encourages self-care, soothes worry, raises vibration and stimulates your capacity to problem solve using both intuition and reason.
Helpful Essential Oils
Clary Sage strengthens intuition and your ability to see and hear psychic messages. Frankincense helps connect you to the Divine and heightens all psychic capabilities. Rose opens your Heart Chakra, allowing you to receive. Lavender supports you emotionally and boosts your self-confidence and self-belief. Lemon is refreshing and supportive – it helps us overcome cynicism, and move to a place of optimism and trust in the Universe, and Jasmine opens us to intuition and spiritual guidance.
These oils can be used singly or they can be blended – they all work beautifully together.
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. What’s more, there’s a comprehensive free online course that goes with the Planner, which walks you through everything we do within the pages!
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. There is a full year calendar for 2021 and 2022, monthly calendars with the major astrological events mapped, and then weekly calendars with space for you to write, plan and work with your weekly card and gratitude habit.
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, and affirmations.
And for every Planner sold, ten trees will be planted, to give back to Mother Earth.

This week I’m doing just a little work, as well as a whole lot of planning and a lot more rest! I’ll also be packing and shipping Etsy orders 😊 and baking up some yumminess for New Year’s Eve. I’m enjoying this slower pace, and I’m finally catching up on my holiday reading book pile. (But seriously, who ever gets to the end of their book pile? As fast as I read something another book mysteriously adds itself. Does that happen to you too? I’d love to know!)
Love, Christmas books and summery snack platters, Nicole xx
