Monday Oracle – 18 December 2017

 “When we get impatient because something is taking too long, we should remember that Life waits on us a thousand times more than we wait on Life. – Laura Teresa Marquez

Hello, Lovelies!

December is 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. You can read more about that hereKeep that in mind as we look at the gifts which the oracle card Impatience brings us.

So, what awareness does Impatience bring us this week?

Right now we are entering an interesting period. 2017 energies have swung away and 2018 energies don’t kick in until 14-16 January and then we’ll move into a year that is much more about simple living, and about relationships and love and family and friendship. But for now we’ve now entered an energetic period known as The LULL.

It’s a quiet resting space between two bigger more defined energies. It’s an energy that suits rest, play and time for yourself.

So that’s what is best for you to do.

Don’t feel in any rush to get started on anything. Take some time out to recover from the onslaught that has been the past few years. Let go of impatience and surrender to the slow down.

Create endings and thank-yous and gratitude for relationships shared this year. Make some space for everyone, including yourself.

Forgive yourself if the year didn’t pan out the way you’d intended, or if you found that you didn’t give things the effort and commitment you’d initially planned.

Let it all go, leaving room for the new.

We’re in the LULL now.

It’s a time for pause. For rest. For sitting back and relaxing.

It’s time for a break.

Put your work away. Go have some fun. Be with the ones you love. Dance, read books, meet for coffee, celebrate life. Dream a little.

It’s not a great time for study, work planning or ‘catching up’. Please, don’t even try. You won’t be missing out. There is nothing to be gained by going against the current energies.

There will be plenty of time to plan, act and make magic in 2018.

Supportive crystals this week?

Clear Quartz lifts your vibration and opens you to flow. A clear quartz cluster will be extra supportive for you and your loved ones this week!  Green Aventurine opens you out into possibility, tapping you into the joy of living and that wonderful feeling of gratitude. Larimar will help you to let go of guilt and move into relaxation and a sense of inner harmony.  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 super meet-and-greet or party companion.

Helpful essential oils?

I’m loving Young Living’s Peace and Calming this week. It’s an oil blend I often use to promote calm and deep peace. It also helps me to sleep well after having had a stressful or particularly wired day. Nervous traveller? A few drops in a tissue or hanky or that you can breathe in, or rubbed into your temples will make your journey more peaceful.  Dab a drop on your Crown Chakra, over your heart, wrists and the soles of your feet, inhale directly or add to your diffuser. It is also beautiful when massaged into your feet before bed.

Want to make your own blend? Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own for you this week, but they’ll also make a delicious combination for diffusing. Frankincense will calm and connect us, promoting emotional balance, Lavender keeps us in flow and relaxed, Ylang Ylang opens our hearts and is supportive when we feel anxious or overwhelmed, and Orange brings calm,gratitude and optimism.  To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser. You can find the oils here.

The Lull is also a beautiful time for gently planning the year ahead as we reflect on what has been, and where we want to go next.

PS: Monday’s oracle card, ‘Impatience’, is from the Chakra Wisdom Oracle Deck by Tori Hartman. I use any cards shown as a prompt for channelled messages and my own intuitive wisdom, so my take is sometimes quite different to the meaning found in a book. 

The Energies of December – 2017

“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. BennettThe Light in the Heart

Hello, Lovelies :)

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

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.
