“Be grateful for what you already have while you pursue your goals. If you aren’t grateful for what you already have, what makes you think you would be happy with more?”
~Roy T. Bennett,
Finally, here we are at December. It’s a month for counting our blessings, filling ourselves with what nourishes us and speaks to our souls, and celebrating the relationships that make our lives worthwhile.
Above all it’s a month for kindness and generosity of spirit towards ourselves and others, and for planning gently and realistically about the coming year.
Cards for the Month:
I’ve chosen two cards for December for you: one from the Osho Zen Tarot Deck, and one from Colette Baron-Reid’s Wisdom of the Oracle. Please note I don’t use these cards in the conventional way, but rather as a stimulus for channelled information.
Here is what I have received from each card:
“When you are grateful, fear disappears and abundance appears.”
~ Anthony Robbins
December brings gifts of pleasure and true abundance. A rich life is one that is blessed with love, with friendship, with gratitude, and with self-love. December invites you to celebrate all that is good in your life, and to share these blessings with others. It invites you to fill your life with the relationships, activities and moments that bring you pleasure. It invites you to begin harvesting some of the goodness you have sown this year.
Take time this month to devour music, silence, spiritual connection, food, company, solitude, urban wonders, rural landscapes, mountains, oceans and everything in between.
Share. Connect. Fill yourself with wonder.
Organise meetings with friends and loved ones.
Celebrate with your tribe.
Celebrate on your own.
Rest. Or dance your feet off.
Devote yourself with every atom to something that is precious to you.
Breathe in life and exhale love.
It’s a month that helps reconnect you to all that is important to your heart and happiness. It’s a month that helps you look back and see just how far you’ve come!
The second card I’ve chosen is Blessed. It’s a card whose primary message is for us to understand that we are truly loved, that prayers can be answered, goals can be realised and that miracles are possible.
“Reflect upon your present blessings — of which every man has many — not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.”
~ Charles Dickens
Blessed reminds us of the importance of dreams that seem impossible to us but that still hold our hearts in thrall, of the existence of Angels and other beings who uplift us and love us at every moment of our lives, and of the great love that radiates out to us from beyond this lifetime we are living now. We are never, ever, alone.
We ourselves are miracles, simply by virtue of our existence. We are connected to All that Is. We are made of stardust and magic.
More than that, Blessed asks to us to believe that our lives can change for the better in a heartbeat; that synchronicities are not coincidences; that setting intentions or offering prayers or meditations and requests for help all enact forces within the Universe that can manifest our dreams into reality.
In December reach out. Ask up. Open your heart to possibility. Trust.
Best crystals this month?
Clear Quartz and Unakite
Clear Quartz lifts your vibration and opens you to flow. It is a highly spiritual stone, encouraging self-reflection and is helpful for hearing messages and receiving signs or direction that can assist you on your journey
Unakite opens your heart to love, and draws love, friendship and helpful people to you. It helps you to overcome feelings of isolation or loneliness, and is a comforting and reassuring stone to hold or wear for people who suffer from social anxiety.
Essential oils to support your journey?
Young Living’s Joy and Envision essential oil blends are my picks for December. Joy opens our hearts and helps us to re-engage with the flow of life. It is uplifting, comforting and empowering. Dab a drop of either oil on your Crown Chakra, back of neck, wrists and the soles of your feet, inhale directly or add to your diffuser. Envision helps us to see the possibilities for ourselves and our life. It brings inspiration, intuition, insight and clear vision. Rub a drop together in your hands, breathe in deeply and then wipe your hands in a circular extending movement through your aura. Finish with a drop on your Crown Chakra, Heart and inner wrists.
Want to make your own blend? Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own for you this month, but they’ll also make a delicious combination for diffusing. Frankincense for spiritual and intuitive connection and restoration of faith. Geranium for stress reduction and emotional balance, and for evoking a sense of peace and goodwill. Orange for optimism and happiness. Pine for being grounded and centred in ourselves as we open to our highest potential. To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser. You can find the oils here.
Come to my Brisbane events on 15 and 16 December and join me for a night of channelling, or our weekend workshops. I’ll be teaching you how to connect into your inner truth to create and activate a vision board to bring your dreams into reality, and how to use tarot or oracle cards to gain clarity and insights for your life as you learn how to give a reading for yourself or others. We’ll also have a pop up shop filled with delicious crystals and other spiritual tools. More details here.
Wishing you a love-filled, satisfying and wonder-full December.
Lots of love, Nicole❤ xoxo
