Clear thinking requires courage rather than intelligence.Thomas Szasz
This Quarter I am using The Light Seer’s Tarot by Chris-Anne for my weekly oracle readings.
Our card to guide us for the week ahead is 8 – STRENGTH. It’s a week for getting clear about how you feel, about what you want and don’t want. The kind of clarity that precedes action. The kind of clarity that requires courage.
STRENGTH reminds us of the power within us.
Clarity is just beneath the surface of our muddled mind. All we need to do is slow down, breathe deeply, relax ourselves and then dive deeper.
Which takes courage.
It takes courage to stop telling yourself the comforting stories and admit to yourself the truth of how you really feel.
It takes courage to act upon your inner knowing. To leave a broken dream behind, or to chase a new one.
You had that strength as a child. As a tiny, vulnerable and totally dependent being you could feel into yourself and express your hunger, your rage, your wonder and your love. You would give your full focus to what interested you, and be captivated by your own yearnings.
Now you are grown.
You still have your inner child to guide you, that straight-shooting, loving and honest part of yourself that already knows how you feel and what you want. They’ve always known.
Reach into yourself and you will know too. It’s time.
Clarity means that you can let go of all of the clutter (physical, emotional, mental) that you have created, to medicate yourself into feeling better. Clarity means that you can simplify, and follow that simpler path with a light heart.
Simple, of course, does not necessarily mean easier. But we can do hard things, when the road leads to a destination chosen by our heart.
Once you have your clarity, be bold. Take action!
My Top Tip For The Week Ahead: Find a little time this week to sit with yourself, your cards, and your journal. Ask yourself what you most need to know. Ask yourself the questions that are already bubbling beneath your skin. The courage is already within you.
Stuck with creating a satisfying life for yourself or understanding your best direction forward? Maybe you need a session with me to bring some extra clarity and direction. Details here

This week I’m busy with client readings, and getting ready for my free 30 Day Planner Challenge.
And, amidst all of that, some time in the forest at the bottom of my garden, and a few quick trips back to Brisbane to box the last few items in our home there, before it goes on the market.
But the kind of crazy I am actually looking forward to – so many doors opening as others close.
The mountain of boxes in the middle of our open-plan dining room is growing enormous. February’s task will be to find a home for these things, to to sell or gift them to others. No time to think about that yet. That’s next month’s priority, not this one.
Are you joining my FREE 30 Day Planner Challenge?
Are you ready to develop more confidence in using tarot or oracle cards for yourself, and for connecting to your intuition? If the answer is yes you will LOVE my upcoming 30 Day Planner Challenge – which is completely FREE. It starts this Friday, and I’m so excited to share this journey with you.
If you need a bit of direction, inspiration, or help to know where to focus your energy (or lack of energy!) this Challenge is for you. It will also help you to deepen your spiritual and intuitive practices around using the Planner. No prior experience is needed to join my Challenge. I’ll teach you everything you need to know. But you’ll need a copy of my Planner! There are still hard copies available, and you can also purchase a digital download if that works better for you. Even better, I have organized a big SALE in my ETSY shop, so it’s the perfect time to buy a copy of my Planner, a journal, a Ylang-Ylang Oil or a Mala for yourself or as a gift. Go here now to get the discounted items.
Here’s what you need to know:
The 30 Day Planner Challenge will officially start on January 28, 2022 (that’s Australian time – so it might be January 27 where you live).
The Challenge is completely FREE and will be held as a course in our Journeymaker Academy (which is hosted with Kajabi – so you don’t need to be on Facebook to access this course.) Additional support and community can be accessed in our free Facebook Group, The Journeymakers.
The aim of the Challenge is to help you learn to make the best of your Journeymaker’s Planner, and to connect to your intuition and creativity, and better manage stress and anxiety, with a small task or activity every day for 30 days.
You’ll need five minutes each day, although you are welcome to spend more time on each activity if you’d like to do that.
The format of the Challenge will be short daily instructional videos, followed by a short activity using your Planner, cards and crystal.
You’ll need a hard copy or digital copy of The Journeymaker’s Planner (details about how to get your copy at end of this post), a deck of oracle or tarot cards, and a crystal.
How to join:
All you have to do is click the link, and then follow simple instructions: ENROL HERE.
The actual course lessons will begin on January 28, 2022.
I’ll be running regular live events in my free Journeymakers Facebook Group to help you get prepped before the Challenge starts on . Relax – these live sessions go for fifteen minutes, so they won’t take a big chunk out of your day, and if you can’t make it to the live event you’ll be able to catch the replay.
JOIN ME FOR THE WARM UPS!
Join me live in our Journeymakers Group on Facebook as I take you through some of the warm-ups and help you get organized before the Challenge starts, pop these times in your Planner (all times are Brisbane, Australia time zone, which may be the day before where you live!) – and remember, if you can’t make it live you can always catch up on the replay. (Yes, you can do the Challenge without the warm-ups too!)
*9.30AM – TUESDAY 25 JANUARY
*5.00PM – WEDNESDAY 26 JANUARY
*11.00AM – THURSDAY 27 JANUARY
28 January – 3- Day Free Planner Challenge begins!

Love, discounty discounts, and the excitement of a new Challenge about to go live, Nicole xx
