Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.John Lubbock
This Quarter I am using the Sacred Earth Oracle Deck cards by Toni Carmine Salerno and Leela J. Williams, illustrated by Helena Nelson-Reed for my weekly oracle readings.
Our card to guide us for the week ahead is RENEWAL. The energies now support us resting, healing and adjusting the balance of our lives so that we can replenish our energy and rebuild our strength.
Rest and renewal – it’s one of the big topics I have been speaking about within my membership group. It’s such an important thing, and more so if you identify as highly sensitive, empathic or intuitive.
This modern world that makes us feel we must always hustle, always be productive, always be efficient is the very thing that breaks and burns out sensitive souls. We are not robots. We are not machines. We must honour our cycles of energy, including those cycles where we need to power down.
This is a week for resting, replenishing, and for doing the things that your KNOW are good for your body, mind and spirit. Everyone is different – what relaxes or replenishes you might be entirely different to what works for me. There’s no need to compare. Just follow your inner wisdom and take steps to fill yourself back up again.
My Top Tip For The Week Ahead: Think back to times in your life where you had more energy, felt more well, slept better. What were you doing? What has worked for you to heal or repair yourself in the past? How can you bring that wisdom and those practices into your life to support you now?
Crystals to support you this week – Fluorite, Clear Quartz, Red Jasper, Carnelian, Rose Quartz

There is still so much year left – it’s not too late to get started and to make the most of the months ahead. I have just discounted the final copies of my Journeymaker’s Planner to only $15.00 USD (that’s 50% off!) and this low price includes a comprehensive free online course. The Planner was created to help you learn to tap into your intuition, honor your heart’s path and follow your calling using skills like meditation, mindfulness, journaling, self-care, intuitive card reading, energy work, and much more. This 368-page book is a spiritual toolkit disguised as a diary & planner.
There are 52 pages of rituals, information and activities to help you make the most of this year. 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. Every 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 are full year calendars for 2021 and 2022, monthly calendars showing moon phases and astronomical events, and week-by-week diary pages for you to plan your days.
To support your purchase there is also a Free Online Course, available in our Journeymaker’s Academy. (If you used the course in 2020 go back and check it out for the new updated content and content specific to 2021!) 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 more. And you can start at any time, because the work is self-paced and can guide you at any stage of the year.
And for every Planner sold, ten trees will be planted, to give back to Mother Earth.

This week is an exciting one for me. I am finally getting better internet installed in the Treehouse. And I found the boxes of writing notes and books I need to get back into the creative projects I had shelved at the beginning of the pandemic, so I will be taking some time to unpack those and to get my office organised.
I’ll also be heeding the energies of this week and taking some time to rest too, in between speaking with clients. I can see some early nights, some nourish bowls of brown rice, vegies and good protein, and some ocean swims coming up – just what my soul needs right now.
I need to find a spot to build a herb garden too. Now that we’re really starting to feel at home here I am missing being able to walk out into the garden to pick fresh herbs and vegetables. That’s a lovely project for these cooler months.
Wherever you are, I hope you can find some time to connect with nature, to rest, and to nourish yourself this week.
Big hugs, miso soup and afternoon naps, Nicole xx
