The Gifts of Patience – Monday Oracle 9 January 2023


The best teachers have showed me that things have to be done bit by bit. Nothing that means anything happens quickly–we only think it does. The motion of drawing back a bow and sending an arrow straight into a target takes only a split second, but it is a skill many years in the making. So it is with a life, anyone’s life.

Hello, Lovelies!

This Quarter I am using Queen Of The Moon Oracle by Stacey Demarco for my weekly oracle readings.

Our card to guide us for the week ahead is Green Corn Moon – PATIENCE. 

Green Corn Moon – PATIENCE brings us two main messages this week.

The first is that there is no need to rush right now. It’s okay if you are not slogging through your to-do list at the usual speed. It’s okay if things take longer, or if you need to prioritise rest over results. Giving yourself permission to go slow this week, and to be patient with yourself and everyone around you will take the pressure off and help you to find your centre again and move back into flow.

The second thing you are reminded of is that many worthwhile things take time. Perhaps you have been procrastinating on starting or completing something because it will take ‘too long’. But are the instant-gratification activities you choose to do instead satisfying for you? Are they building towards something that will have heart and meaning and a sense of accomplishment?

This week, revisit those ideas and projects that will take time, patience and commitment, and where results may be slow to realise. Then look at how you can take action on one of those things, slowly, and with patience. Sigh up for that art class, begin that quilt, write that book, strip back that piece of furniture, begin those language or music lessons. Make time in your schedule to have regular sessions, and allow your skill, knowledge or results to slowly build over time. It will be worth it.

The way you approach this week can set the tone for your entire year, so embrace slow, embrace mindfulness, embrace not needing to push and hustle to get things done. Find windows of time for your projects and dreams, plan, rest, and practice gratitude often.

My Top Tip For The Week Ahead: 

Very often, the thing you want can take time. That’s okay. It’s a wonderful week to plan for longer-term goals and to commit to results which might be slow to achieve. There can be great power in going slowly and not giving up. Consistent small steps and patience can change your life, so don’t worry about the speed of your future progress, just be committed to your plan and then trust in positive outcomes.

This year, working slowly and consistently, and with good planning, you’ll get much more achieved than you ever thought possible. Being slow, strategic and methodic will create real and tangible progress.

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. I am nearly booked out for January and I have a few availabilities in February so please act quickly if you want to secure an appointment.  Details here

We’ve had a bumpy ride this last week, with loved ones back in hospital with serious health issues. Things are still quite stressful here, and I am expecting we’ll continue to have our focus on family while these difficulties are being faced.

It’s meant that my time off over the Christmas break hasn’t really been time off, so I have been doing my best to go slow, to get to bed early, to pull back where I can, and to manage my health and wellbeing as a priority.

When I haven’t been up at the hospital or running around after family, I have made lots of time for planning, journalling and working with my Journeymaker’s Planner 2023. It has been so good to take time to pull my cards for the year, to do my 2022 review, and to plan my projects, habit and work events for the coming year. Slowing down feels good and right, and so in tune with the energies of the year ahead. 

If you’re not working with my Planner yet, it’s not too late! You can buy an editable PDF digital copy (to write straight into or print off as needed) here

Want a physical copy of the Planner? You can get that at your local Amazon site as a print-on-demand book. Just put this in the search bar: Journeymakers Planner 2023 by Nicole Cody.
If you can’t find it at your local site then use Amazon USA but try local first!

Amazon’s Global Marketplaces:

I am also offering you the chance to WIN a hard copy of my Journeymaker’s Planner 2023 as well as a few other special goodies. All you have to do is add your name in the comments below. I will draw a name at random today at 6pm Brisbane time, and announce the winner on my blog tomorrow.

Then I’ll ship this out to you, with all of my Blessings and positive intentions for your year ahead.

Love, hugs and a giftwrapped package that could have your name on it, Nicole xx
