A wonderful gift may not be wrapped as you expect.Jonathan Lockwood Huie
So here we are – another Christmas is upon us.
It’s a joyful time for some, and a trying time for others, and 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, as always, 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 an oracle for you as my Christmas Gift.
I’d like you to choose the Christmas Gift from the selection below – choose the one that appeals to you the most, the one your heart wants more than your mind, and don’t overthink it. Then take your time to unwrap it and receive its message and blessings for you.

Know that you are loved. Know that you matter to me. I intend only the best for you, and that 2022 be a year that is richly satisfying, and filled with love and kindness.

♥ Your Gift’s Message ♥
Each Christmas Gift has a message for you for the year ahead. 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.
