With 2013 coming to a close, I’m quite happy to say goodbye to this year (as I described in this post, it hasn’t been the easiest year) and I’m looking forward to 2014.
I have the next week off work and my Angels and Guides have been encouraging me to make plans, not rigid plans, just ideas of what I would like and how I can achieve these. At first it was a gentle suggestion from them to make some plans and the more I dance around the subject, the louder their message has gotten.
I’d like to share with you some of their guidance and what I’ve been doing to welcome 2014 – there may be something in here that can help you too.
I posted this on Facebook yesterday, this was a message I got in a dream. I woke in the morning with the words SQUIRREL MEDICINE in my head and an image of a grey squirrel. After some online investigating, I discovered it was a message to plan for my future and consider where I’m spending my energy.
Squirrel’s are about ACTIVITY and being PREPARED. They gather nuts for the winter months, preparing themselves. Preparing for the future by storing up energy and resources. This teaches us to plan ahead, to gather and store energy for times of need as well as to reserve something for future use. A reminder to be active in planning and enjoying the journey along the way.
I spent the morning journaling and had some interesting realisations. Here are the questions I asked myself, perhaps they may help you too:
- Are you being active? Doing too much? Running around not accomplishing anything?
- Not doing enough?
- Are you making plans for the future? Have you thought about what you want to do in 2014?
- Do you need to save time/energy/money?
- Have you too much stuff and not enough room to make way for the new?
- Are you frantically trying to save but getting nowhere?
- Perhaps you need to consider what you can do or put aside now as a reserve for the future?
- Or to learn to play along the way?
I pulled a ‘Sacrifice’ oracle card the other morning and the message really stood out. I have a lot of ideas and things I want to do yet I’m clinging onto old ways of being. To give you an example, I have some days off work, this is a perfect time for me to put some things into action. There’s a part of me that is saying “It’s my holidays, I deserve some time off” and then there’s another part of me that knows this is a perfect opportunity to do some things that are important to me. The sacrifice card has awakened me to realise that in order to achieve what I want, some sacrifices and old ways of being need to go.
It all comes down to “What do you truly wish for?”. It may imply hardship or giving up something precious but when you make the choice to sacrifice, it is freely given, and thus creates something sacred. The process then becomes Divine in nature with blessings as the reward.
Astrology Reading focusing on the year ahead
I had my first Astrology reading back in August and I’ve got to say I’m a little hooked. I had my natal chart read and not only did it highlight my strengths and weaknesses but it also highlighted some key areas of opportunity and challenge. The reading suggested several things that may happen and they did – being prepared for them was much better than them sneaking up on me.
This was a broad review so I’ve recently had a reading done with 2014 as a focus. I want to be prepared to harness all the positive energy available as well as know where I could potentially struggle. Not to give too much away but 2014 has the potential to be pretty huge for me – IF I tackle my weaknesses, the internal attitudes and things that hold me back.
The IF is important. Astrology reveals the potential and the means with which you can express and develop yourself. It helps you understand where and why your psychological focus is likely to be found as well as helping you understand how to make the best of the energies that are available to you so that you can experience optimum potential, growth and fulfilment.
Astrology is a tool to help you realise your full potential. A tool for transformation. It’s up to YOU to harness the energies available, its up to YOU to fight the things that hold you back. It can only highlight the opportunities, you’ve got to grab them.
If you’re keen to see what opportunities there are for you in 2014, give an Astrology reading a shot. I’ve had mine done by the amazing Damian Rocks from Stars Like You – I don’t think I have words to describe how special Damian is. As one of my teachers, his knowledge of Astrology, Metaphysics, Energy amongst other things truly amazes me. Pretty much everything he has advised me on has come true and it’s been a blessing to have his advice and guidance.
Intuitive Guidance & Distance Healing Session
As a major fan of Sacred Self’s Alchemical Oils and having connected with their creator Michelle Marie McGrath online, I’ve been drawn to work with Michelle for a while now. Michelle oozes a warmth and love that is very special. Having done a course on making essences and alchemical oils, I am very much aware of the magic and energy that is involved in making these. So when Michelle contacted me to say she was offering distance healing sessions, I jumped at the chance to be involved in her magic.
My intention behind the session was to do a final clear out of the ramifications of what’s happened in 2013 to make way for the new in 2014. I also sneakily asked Michelle to answer a question that I knew deep down I knew the answer to – not to test her, it was for a final confirmation for myself. And oh boy did she deliver!
Not only did she confirm my answer but she also gave guidance on how to move forward with it, what things to harness, what to consider, what to look out for and what tools to use to help me.
There were also some funny synchronicities that we giggled about. In the detailed report Michelle gave me she suggested a book for me to read, it so happens I had put the book in my handbag that morning to start reading. She also suggested working more with Archangel Gabriel – literally 5 mins before she told me this I had come across a channelled message I’d written from Gabriel. Coincidence – I think not!
I really loved the session and have found it so valuable. I meditated for an hour that evening on the energy healing mandala she made for me, isn’t she pretty….
There is a lot of detail in her report so I look forward to breaking it down and working through it. It’s helped me end 2013 on a high and I’m excited to move into 2014 with the incredible intuitive advice Michelle has provided for me.
She has a special offer until 14th Jan – if this calls you, jump on it now before she raises her prices! More details here
With all this talk of planning, here are some of the tools I’m using to help create the most fabulous 2014:
My go-to creation bible! LOVE it!
You know when you get a lightbulb moment and it’s so glaringly obvious that you feel like slapping yourself on the forehead and saying “duh”? I had one of those moments last week while working my way through this wonderful workbook. I’m only a third of the way through and it’s already helped me work out something that has been troubling me for quite some time. Love it!
This is my second year using these workbooks, awesome stuff! (with my tendency to get bored with one thing easily, it’s a testament to how great these workbooks are if I’ve come back a second time to use them!).
I was lucky to attend Connie’s workshop in person several weeks ago. The journaling exercises were very profound and helped me realise something pretty major. Connie has since then made the recording of the workshop available as well as a workbook with the journaling exercises. The journaling questions have really helped me map out what my heart’s desires are for next year and beyond.
Dreaming and scheming, believing anything is possible. This workbook has it all.
There you go my friend. I hope there’s a little nugget of wisdom or a resource in here that you can use to help build the most amazing year ahead.
Wishing you the most amazing year ahead. May all your hopes, desires and wishes come true.
Love, light & laughter
