What you seek is seeking you.
This Quarter I am using The Shaman’s Dream Oracle by Alberto Villoldo and Colette Baron-Reid with artwork by Jena DellaGrottaglia, for my weekly oracle readings.
Our card to guide us for the week ahead is 4. CAT-ERPILLAR – OPPORTUNITY
2023 is a year for change, creating solid foundations, and for spiritual journeying. It’s a year for personal growth, and for clarifying who you are, what you want, and why you are here.
November is a month for sacred journeying – for living with mindfulness and stepping more into your personal power. It’s a time for bringing good medicine into your life – the things that nourish, support and heal you. The things that help you grow into a better version of yourself.
4. CAT-ERPILLAR – OPPORTUNITY
It’s a week of possibility and expansive energy, of change and curiosity, and of starting small projects that may take a long time, but that we care about deeply. It’s a week of hope, heralding a time of intense healing, breakthroughs, self-discoveries and, for some, the need to answer a personal calling.
This week things will become clearer. You’ll become aware of what needs to be healed or changed in your life. Or you’ll suddenly see a way forward with these things that you were already aware of but were stuck on. You’ll become better aware of what heals and nurtures you. You’ll become better aware of what limits or poisons you.
Once you know that, move toward what is beneficial, and away from what is not.
Your heart will call to you. Your wise self will whisper to you. There is a place within you that always knows, and that will always guide you true.
All you need to do to work that out is tune in. Be still. And wait for the answers to come. As you slow down (even just for a few minutes each day) you begin to connect into your own intuitive wisdom, your own heart centre, your inner compass.
Got a problem? Feel blocked? 4. CAT-ERPILLAR – OPPORTUNITY reassures you this is a time for reinvention, no matter how stuck how you are. There are solutions and that the best way to deal with your problem is to stop going it alone and seek someone who has successfully walked the same hard road that you now struggle with. This week, find a course, a book, a video, a mentor, a teacher, a counsellor, expert, therapist, or coach. Walk that hard road with their guidance. The best criteria for choosing someone to work with? They’ve travelled the road ahead of you and are now in a better place – or they are deeply experienced in bringing positive results to someone in your situation and have a track record of success. How do you find the right person? Ask questions, use word of mouth and reviews, look for evidence of good results, trust that the right kind of help can show up in your life.
There’s no need to reinvent the wheel. Why make life harder for yourself than it has to be? This week use someone else’s system, knowledge, road map.
It’s also a great week for deep thinking and reflection, journalling and self-work. Ask, and expect answers. Even more, expect to gain understanding and knowledge so that you can make lasting change in your life.
For a select few this is also a week where you will feel stirred to answer a calling. You see, you will be the one who blazed the trail and survived the hard journey. If that’s you, it’s time to use that experience to help guide and support others. You can be the teacher, healer, guide or author that you wished you’d been able to find for yourself.
My Top Tip For The Week Ahead:
Don’t just think about it. Take action. Small steps, the tiniest steps, can lead you forward. You’ve got this!

Well, the Christmas Tree is up, the Christmas cake is made and is now maturing, and I am just about organised with my final Christmas gifts.
If you’re looking for a gift for yourself or a loved one why not check out my Etsy store?
I have the most beautiful carnelian palmstones – to hold in meditation, to keep by your bed while you sleep, or to keep on your desk for inspiration and creativity. Carnelian is the crystal of the year for 2024 and these ones are very special. My lapidiary team in China took days going through tonnes of stones to find just 200 that met my criteria. They have been hand cut and polished, and are wonderfully smooth and filled with incredible energy. They have all been cleansed, charged and blessed in my crystal grid during the recent Portal, and will come to you with much love.
Carnelian amplifies Life Force energy and is a powerful healer for Body, Mind and Spirit. It promotes wellbeing, balance, fertility, passion and endurance. It enhances inner strength and stimulates creativity & self-expression. Opens and activates Base, Sacral & Solar Plexus Chakras and links them to your Heart Chakra. It encourages leadership, motivation and personal responsibility. Draws positive energies & good fortune to you and helps align you with abundance. Connects you to Universal Inspiration, Ancestors, the Earth, Nature Spirits and Angels (And Dragons! – This stone was also used to create the giant stone Dragons that guard the Temple doors of the Buddhist Pagodas.).
I’ve also got a beautiful range of crystal bracelets, including a trio of bracelets designed specially to support you during the energies of 2024. The 2024 Superset Trio of bracelets – Citrine, Carnelian & Tiger Eye – embodies the best of the energies of 2024. They ground and connect you, & support creativity, optimism, good fortune & manifestation. They bring powerful healing, motivation, courage & confidence. They encourage self-worth, healthy boundaries and self-care. They bring vitality, insight and inner strength. They support flow, alignment and expansion. They attract abundance, opportunity and attunement to financial and emotional security. Stones to create real magic and happiness in your life!
Want something tailor-made for you?
Let me personalize a clear quartz crystal bracelet for yourself or a loved one. Send me a message with your order on Etsy and I will sit in meditation with your bracelet, adding a program for the Highest Good. This could be for healing, abundance, protection, spiritual connection, love, support with a project or an issue of concern, or anything else where you or your loved one needs support. Just let me know. If you’re not sure what to ask, then I am happy to create a program for your Highest Good. I will also call on Universal Energies, God, your Guides, Angels and Ancestors to watch over you or your loved on, and for you to feel their love, guidance and support.
