Mon 31st – Tue 1st Jan : Nimue ~ Seek the counsel of crystals
Interesting card to pop up given I’m sense checking my own crystal collection right now. This is a message to follow your own dreams and loosen your own shackles that hold you back.
If something you resonate with it seen as being “unconventional” or “not the norm” so be it. Try and not allow the beliefs and perceptions of others steer you away from something you KNOW is right for you. Be it crystals, energy work, astrology, sound healing, reiki etc etc etc
Looking for answers and the truth is not a bad thing and can lead you on some fascinating and exciting travels. So go with your gut.
For those of you who mark the end of the calendar year and make resolutions now is the perfect time to truly look deeply into this. What do you want to take forwards and what you do wish to leave behind? Only YOU can make these decisions and follow through. For those like myself who set intentions at Solstice you can still add reinforcements to what you set in place as much of the collective looks to use this time for this.
Find what’s holding you back and do something about it. It may be as simple as acknowledging and recognising an aspect of yourself and bringing it back in. Of “seeing” it rather than ignoring it even if it makes you uncomfortable.
You own the set of keys to unlock the cuffs you’ve placed on yourself. By all means seek counsel where needed but take heed of what you are given. It will likely be the tool YOU need to move forwards.
Wed 2nd – Thur 3rd : A beautiful little worm.
Very apt given this falls when many people (not all) are returning to work after a break over the festive season. It can be all too easy to fall right back into things and find yourself majorly stressed and under pressure.
Yes it may be hectic and going at 1000 miles an hour but be kind to yourself right now. Everyone around you is likely in the same boat. Do you blame the person next to you getting stressed seeing their inbox with 200 + emails that have come in while the office has been shut? No. So why are you giving yourself a hard time for the very same thing?
Take a moment and just breathe. Concentrate on your in and out breaths for a minute or two and realise it’s just the story playing out.
Try and not take it personally.
Self care is very important right now as we are still integrating the shifts of 2018 running into 2019 with some big energy due around new moon that many may already be starting to feel in the first day or so. So give yourself some slack. Everything catches up – it always does. You may develop a cold or sniffle which is par for the course when groups of people suddenly have to spend time together in one space.
By seeing to your self care you are giving a big message to the universe that you understand looking after yourself is important and that you are committed to doing so. Of paying attention to what your body is telling you and for many remembering to slooooooow down and not run at things with energy you really don’t have to spare.
You’ll feel the benefits later. It may be as simple as turning off your phone for half an hour, staying off social media for a day or two, stopping and having a cuppa for 5 minutes. You really don’t have to make it a big complicated thing. Simple is perfect.
Fri 4th – Sun 6th : Door to spirit (in challenger aspect )
Ok – so this is a deck that gives the cards slightly different meanings depending on which way up the card is dealt. This one has been dealt in challenger aspect (i.e. upside down) which means its a little something for you to work through. Or at least the POTENTIAL for something to be worked through.
In this case the door to spirit feels blocked, or at least a bit sticky. You may be finding you’re connection to Source/team/esoteric modality of preference seems a bit flat. Like your a radio tuned just out of frequency – you can hear it but it’s fuzzy and broken.
Take a small step back into observation instead if you can.
Are things playing out around you or in your life that as simply zapping your energy or taking all of your focus right now? It may be you can’t see the wood for the trees right now as you are SO focused on the other things.
And I hasten to guess you are feeling just a tad wound up…….
Ok time to let go of the reins a bit folks. Of stepping back and saying “on you go” and allowing things to play out instead. By stepping back from the drama or the story you may find that your esoteric/spiritual side becomes that bit clearer again without the distraction.
Trust all will resolve itself in time and go with the guidance you are given direct for a time.
Start of the week : if you feel drawn to something and others feel or say its “unconventional” then so what? You do whats right for you – if its working with crystals, energy work etc go for it. This is a time for sorting out what works for you not whats dictated by others as being right for you. You hold the key to dissolving the shackles so go for it.
Mid week : self care is very important right now especially of retuning to work or feeling a little under the weather. Slow down a bit where you can and take it easy. If you don;’ have the energy to run at 1000 miles an hour then you don’t have the energy. Do what you can and thats enough.
End of the week – some of you may be feeling as if your connection to Source is a bit stuck or disjointed. If you really look around you are you focussing on world events or events unfolding around you? Changes are they are drowning everything else out. Take a step back from the story and go inwards – you may find your flow was always there you just couldn’t quite hear it.
