Gargoyles – Silence, Guarded
Suppressed feelings that need to surface and be felt. Let your guard down and open your heart. Thinking versus feeling, let go of limitations and surrender.
Happy Fall Equinox! In this month of nine we have a shadow card. Shadow cards ask us to be aware of parts of ourselves that we may not acknowledge. Think of it like a workout... You might love working out your favourite strong body part but you dread working out your weakest and least favourite body part. However, the only way for it to strengthen is to give it the attention it needs. The same goes for our feelings. Nine can represent completion and we have the release that accompanies Autumn. Spirit asks: Are you ready to end a source of your suffering? By doing the opposite of the keywords on this card you have the power to do so. Are you silencing yourself or lying to yourself in some way? Be open, honest, and expressive. Are you holding back and hiding in any way? Be vulnerable and accessible. Some people see gargoyles as scary and dark, others see them as protective guardians. This month you are reminded that you are being spiritually protected and particularly guarded from less than your best. Last month afforded you some power and this month allows you to flip the script.
Responsibility is a strong component of nine energy, and in this dynamic month you will need to accept and embrace your responsibilities. Don't run and hide, or long for what was, or what you wish would be, but stand in the reality of what is. This is the only way to break free and into the potential of all that can be. Timing is a big element you'll be asked to let go of this month. Release your attachment to time frames, for Spirit shows me there are a lot of prayers being answered, but because of expectations of time people are misperceiving things. Don't quit right before the miracle occurs. Fall equinox is the perfect reminder that everything has a season, a natural process that can't be rushed or forced. Don't wait for things to be over but rather surrender more fully into the now, honoring the present moment. Any patterns of waiting and beliefs of "I'll be happy when" will come up to be shifted this month.
You are being challenged to find the magic in the mystery. I'm shown someone holding a map that's been well marked with all the moves set in place but Spirit says: "Best laid plans." I'm shown that map holder then getting frustrated as they encounter unexpected twists and turns and feeling more confused and lost than ever. Thinking your way forward isn't going to guarantee success at this time. Rather, Spirit shows someone blindfolded and feeling their way forward in the dark, but they ultimately get exactly where they need and want to go. Trust and let Spirit take care of the details. Just keep putting one foot in front of the other. A practical and steadfast approach will serve you well this month.
Be aware of denial and justifying things at this time. The fear of the unknown might have you dressing something up and convincing yourself it's better than it is. This is a month to accept hard truths, to be deeply honest with yourself, and to take ownership and dedicated action in your personal well-being. Spirit shows me someone standing naked before a mirror and fearlessly acknowledging themselves in all their glory - mind, body and soul. They say there is no room for blame or shame, only self-exploration, understanding, and healing. Things that have been stagnant are wanting to move forward and let go. I'm shown a child shaking a tree as the leaves fall and the branches are left bare. This month is a reminder that you can't have a new beginning without first having an ending. Do you have anything remaining that needs to be shaken off? Just like the empty branches on the tree, can you breathe into the remaining void? Can you trust in that empty space and in the process of release and renewal? There may be things you release and accept now that aren't fulfilled for another season or two. The sun is always within the shadows, the light always wanting to be extracted from the dark. Be willing and willful this September. Seek the light within, feed the light within, and watch it grow without.
Pan – Music, Rhythm
A career in the arts. Creativity and music will soothe your soul. Don't be afraid to stand out, march to the beat of your own drum.
This month you may feel like you are breaking in a new pair of shoes. As good as they look (and will ultimately feel) they need to be broken in. This is true for your energy and the new rhythm you've stepped into. It's well deserved; in some cases hard-fought, and despite ultimately bearing new fruit, like everything in life, it requires adaptation.
This month of eight sees you expressing your authentic power. Yellow and purple will be beneficial colors to work with as your crown chakra and solar plexus will be lit up. If something doesn't work for you, rather than forge through unnecessary pain, your heightened awareness and honed intuition will have you finding a workaround or simply sidestepping it altogether. Why go that way when I can go this way? That is the question you'll ask yourself. Think smarter, not harder. Creative solutions are at your heels if you're willing to see everything as a beneficial learning curve. You'll feel a newfound sense of freedom and energy in going your own way. With this you may find you've got a little more pep in your step and feel realigned with your destiny.
Music will be your greatest ally this month as you allow it to support your self-expression and healing. Pan is a very earthy character and I hear a lot of drumming and rattling being encouraged. Sound healing will be a great form of meditation this month. And of course, time in nature. Spirit shows you laying outside and watching the leaves on the trees, the clouds, or the stars overhead. Enjoy those quiet moments of summer where time seems to stand still. The pace of life may be speeding up but in taking those moments you're able to press pause; it's a bit of a superpower Earth Mother gifted you. Pan's earthiness also signals something in your life becoming more stable. The ground may have felt a bit shaky but you can expect to feel your foundation start to solidify. Spirit reminds you not to judge your feelings but instead to allow them, just be with them wherever you are at and know that it's okay, even if it doesn't feel good. The more you resist or suppress your feelings the more power you give them. And this month of eight that supports your personal power and freedom allows you to flow through your emotions more easily, so take advantage. You are reminded that in uncertain times it is your faith and willingness to call in the spiritual support that allows for a smoother road. Ask for what you want, and then commit to it.
If we look at the eight energy of August and flip it horizontally it becomes the infinity symbol. Spirit shares that something sustainable is showing up for you. For example, this would be a month where you wouldn't just find a new job but a job that becomes a career. Or you wouldn't diet but make a lifestyle change. The earth element with the power of eight propels you forward in ambition and commitment. With that, there may be some unexpected engagements popping up this month as well. The flip side of the frustration of these times is that it reminds you what is really important. Remember to take time for you to self-connect so you don't slip into any imbalanced tendencies. Stay focused on what is being unearthed for you as opposed to digging your heels in and resisting the necessary adaptation. If you're willing to do so you might just unearth some buried treasure.
Flower Fairies - Seasons, Celebration
Celebrate a holiday or special occasion. Prepare for the change of seasons or a significant life event, such as a birthday, graduation or anniversary. Indulge yourself, you deserve it.
"It's time," Spirit says. This month could see you enjoying good news or a pleasant surprise. At the very least you can expect enhanced clarity, decisiveness, and progress, as the wait feels over. Something you have been working on or healing has come full circle and you can celebrate its completion. Exhale. Enjoy a sigh of relief. As one of the meanings of this card states, indulge yourself, you deserve it. Self-love and self-confidence are eager to burst forward this month in a whole new light. Pat yourself on the back for your steadfast approach and perseverance; and now really open your heart to what you truly desire and deserve. It's time to stop focusing on what isn't working and to refocus your energy on what is. Remember, in any given moment you have a choice: love or fear. Choose love. This month of seven invites a welcome balance of your intellect and emotion. Whereas you may have found the pendulum swinging to extremes recently, you now discover center.
This is a month to be very honest with yourself, and with others. Authenticity is the answer to your prayers. And this card heralds a prayer being answered. If you have been doing your work and shedding the necessary layers, you have at last arrived in the new you. You will start to feel like yourself again. Your energy will begin to renew, and your passions will start to pick up. Spirit shows me the energy of a lazy river becoming a waterfall. You may find yourself inspired to kickstart something you've been putting off or haven't had the energy for. The past is where it belongs, behind you. And the future is yours for co-creating. You have released and healed a very deep-rooted and significant pattern in your life. You have courageously acknowledged and addressed a painful truth, faced the fear, and now get to connect with and enjoy the healed outcome. Remember all those times you questioned and doubted whether all the hard work was worth it? This month begins to reveal some of the rewards of your efforts.
Funny as it may sound, doing the work can be hard, but what people often find even more challenging is receiving. Keep your heart open and know your worth. Value yourself and see that value reflected this month in the form of support, opportunity, courage, clarity, and new beginnings. Spread your wings and fly; it's time to venture forward and write a new story. As the saying goes, "nothing ventured, nothing gained". The only one standing between you and your best life, is you.
Bush People – Earth, Community
Join forces with others, make eco-friendly choices, help heal animals and the environment. Donate time to a charity, sign a petition, or volunteer for an important cause. A new pet.
This card certainly fits the six vibrations of June. Six is a very nurturing and loving number, like the energy of a maternal hug. And the Bush People are characters that are all about love, affection, and support. They teach you that you have to ask for what you want, otherwise, others might not know you need it. Don't know what you want? Not sure what you need? Ask Spirit for your highest possibility and greatest outcome. Focus on how you want to feel as opposed to decisions and specifics. If you do so, Spirit will always know the best direction for you, and will send you signs, synchronicity, and opportunities accordingly. This is a month to ask for a hand and to lend a hand. Be open to new possibilities but be detached from the details.
I'm shown images of things being built, a child playing with Lego, another stacking blocks, one thinking intently before drawing a picture. This will be a month of revision. You will find yourself restructuring and rebuilding. You can expect to modify your routine or create a new routine, that will allow for greater balance and gentleness. Don't be afraid to tweak and re-tweak as needed until you hit your sweet spot. The Bush People are always in pairs, or in a group, so there will be an added boost of supportive energy for group healing and teamwork.
Last month afforded you the chance to get clear about what direction you wanted to move forward in, and what you wanted more or less of. This month your awareness and healing changes will start to manifest as you feel the energy rise up to meet you, making wee waves in that new direction. There will be slow but steady growth and movement. Time in nature will be most helpful. And it will be a great month to work on any outdoor projects such as a garden or deck. Alternatively, any indoor themed nature projects such as repotting plants or opening windows as you rearrange or refresh your space.
This month's message is to get to the heart of the matter. Connect with the 'why' behind things, as this will feed your willpower and help your motivation. Don't love what you're currently doing? Keep returning to why you are doing it. That may be your passion right now, as opposed to the work itself. You are asked to be extra conscious of your energy and words, what you're putting out into the world. Check in and make sure something is worth saying or sharing before doing so. You may find you've been expending energy or resources where they are not at all necessary. It's a great month to harness your energy, and restore your core, as suits your soul's personal journey.
Meditations and crystals for the heart chakra and solar plexus will be most beneficial. And you are encouraged to work with the colors yellow and green. Picture the yellow light and power energy of your solar plexus rising up to wrap around and hold the green light and loving energy of your heart chakra. Your solar plexus personal power energy will be supporting your heart's longings and healing change. The worst is now behind you and it's time to catch your breath and come up for some well-deserved air. Balance, balance, balance. Don't leap and regret but plan and baby step. Be conscious of not biting off more than you can chew. Your drive may prove more ambitious than your energy reserves. And if you push yourself you'll find a one step forward, two steps back energy at play. Focus on finding center and try and enjoy the budding momentum. Stay present and conscious to what this time is affording you the opportunity to heal because before you know it, you'll be standing in the future picture that once seemed oh so far away.
Merlin – Wisdom, Teacher
Time for a new mentor or teacher to come in. Share your wisdom and use it to teach others. Pay close attention to repetitive thoughts as they are divine insights.
April's big healing energy may have had you addressing a lot, including patterns of control, inner child healing, resistance, disempowerment, expectation and disappointment, releasing attachment to false senses of security, as well as individual and collective grief. Stick with the process as it will continue to come in waves, as grief does. Spirit reminds you to take time to self-reflect and care for your energy, leaning into the support of your Guides and Spirit helpers.
Last month's focus on emotional awareness will become this month's focus on emotional acceptance. It will help you ground into your new normal. You may feel like you're taking steps backward, as though you were the teacher now forced to be the student again. In one way or another you are cycling back to something. Do your best to embrace the Benjamin Button vibes. It can feel frustrating, but in truth this return isn't a step back but preparation and clarity for a new step forward. It's a chance to re-evaluate, re-learn, and ultimately renew.
This month of five carries an element of freedom and Spirit shows me being a caterpillar in a cocoon banging on the inside wall of it wanting to get out and just be the butterfly already. But healing happens in stages, and the more you surrender to the current stage, the better the outcome will be. Exhale, allow and trust.
This month will bring clarity in preparation for more freedom in the future. There will be a focus on mental health and healing your perspective. Meditations for the crown and third eye chakras will be beneficial. And it is highly likely you will make some big decisions regarding your path and how you want to move forward in your life. This will happen in all areas but decisions around work and career will be particularly heightened so you can expect some revelation in this area. These may be things you may or may not want to return to, changes you want to implement, or new paths you want to embrace. For example, you may commit to a completely new career path or area of study, create a retirement plan and decide it's time to step back, or evolve a current skill set. The number five will show up as a sign of encouraging change, and the number nine will show up as a sign of validating a decision or path. Spirit reminds you that it's okay to change your mind. And it's never too late to make a healing change that supports your well-being.
On a larger scale, the questions Spirit really wants you to ask yourself are: What do you really want for your future? What do you want for your kids? Your grandkids? The planet? What healing changes are asking to break through? Intention is everything. Once you know what you want, connect with Spirit, and set your intentions with love. Reconnect with the power of your thoughts and follow through with the power of prayer.
Mrs. McCullum – Health, Healing
Take care of the physical body through regular exercise, a healthy diet and sleep. A healer who uses their gifts to help others. Find harmony and balance with both traditional and alternative medicine, honor all aspects of the healing arts.
This month is an opportunity to revisit and rewrite your definitions and experiences of health and healing. Have you viewed healing and taking care of your health as a chore? Do you find the pendulum swings to extremes and it's easy to practice self-care when things are going smoothly but harder to maintain when facing challenges? Which ironically is when it's needed most. Maybe you've focused your attention on developing your physical health but now your mental health requires the same focus in order to keep things harmonized.
It can be easy to get frustrated, annoyed, even angry at your body when things are not working as you want them to. But it's so important to remember that every ailment or lack of energy you have is your body speaking to you. Every health crisis or challenge is a call to healing and/or an opportunity to gain awareness and insight into yourself. When you can see it this way, it becomes easier to love your body and shift your reaction to any ailments. Rather than getting irritated and thinking 'What now?!' you can go within and ask 'What are you trying to tell me?' 'What needs my attention?' 'What do we need to heal and how?' Your body can become an ally working with you to create and maintain health as opposed to an enemy that is always giving you grief. I like to describe it to clients as, 'Your soul is the vessel of God's love, and your body is the vehicle for your soul.' Why wouldn't you invest as much time, money and energy caring for the vehicle that houses your soul as you would an actual physical vehicle you drive?
Mrs. McCullum is a character who is very warm and caring; she loves tending to others. Healing is fun for her, it's her craft. Spirit says it's time to let go of forced methods of trying to feel good. Explore what you like and don't like and why. Do this by going within, connect and communicate with your energy body. Access your soul, move your energy. You don't need to be out and about in order to feel and enjoy movement. You can move within your own energy body at will and access feelings of calm, lightness, freedom, and strength. This is a month of four, a vibration that supports determination, practicality, and hard work. Spirit has your back, and says this may be your month to access your health and view it in a whole new light. The saying, 'April showers bring May flowers' will resonate on a spiritual level. Energetically, you you may feel as if you're getting a rinse this month. Spirit says it has the potential to be a month lots of people will look back on and realize it inspired a lot of healing change.
Weepin' Willy – Grief, Emotions
A time of transition, be gentle with yourself, take it day by day. Sadness, loss and grief, needing to let go and trust in the bigger picture. A divinely guided experience that will lead to healing, growth and positive change.
Transition, a time to find new ways of being. You have left something behind you and are working on embracing a new start. Even though this is a divinely guided experience leading to new growth, there are feelings of loss associated with your recent changes. This month is about emotional acceptance. This doesn't mean you will experience heightened emotions but rather a focus on integrating emotions. What do you need to grieve? What losses are you currently accepting? These losses, or endings, are really gains at heart. They signal progress, movement, they are signs that things are ready to evolve. The healed opposite of grief is celebration, and this is what you are guided to focus on in order to create your greatest outcome.
Remind yourself to find the 'flip side of the coin' as Spirit is calling it. A simple shift in perspective can do wonders! When you do so, you can find yourself going from grief to gratitude in no time. As the card says, be gentle with yourself. As you release old ways of being it's important not to get caught in judgment and guilt but instead to acknowledge your willingness to embrace change. Part of that gentleness will involve some rest and reflection. This month has the potential to be a nice balance of stillness and action. You are peeling back layers that will leave you feeling lighter. The result is more energy, harmony and peace. When you are connecting with Spirit be aware of not trying to get answers but to observe and receive. Instead of answers, seek the feeling of activation, as that's what will be happening. An energetic initiation into the newly awakened, or expanded version of you.
Spring equinox is March 19th. Take advantage of the seasonal pull that supports planting new intentions and hatching new ideas. You may have found you have changed paths altogether, saying goodbye to a path that has come to an end. Or you might find your path is merely widening and becoming clearer. Any recent growing pains are a sign of new territory calling to be unearthed. Compassion for yourself and others will be key this month as you learn to love change and let go of any false sense of security. Why waste time chasing answers when change is the only constant? Stop trying to 'get there' because the spiritual truth is you never fully arrive, you are always and forever in a state of becoming. The beauty is in the becoming. It's time to welcome the curiosity and celebration of this next cycle of your life. It's time to breathe, to choose love over fear, and to surrender. The time of waiting is coming to an end, you are ready to step up and embrace the unknown.
Chief Nimble – Ceremony, Ritual
Create and practice a daily ritual, such as a morning and evening prayer. Connect with your guides through sacred ceremony. Work with the four elements and four directions of North/Earth, West/Water, East/Air and South/Fire to create transformation and healing.
Of the above card meanings, the one that most stands out for this month is: Connect with your guides through sacred ceremony. You are reminded that you don't get what you don't ask for. And that you can't receive what you aren't willing to open up to. You'll always be given the answers if you're willing to ask, listen, and trust. Spirit describes February as a month where you will be called to dig deeper. Instead of soul searching, it'll be more of a soul dive. Notice the red colour and earth energy of this card, highlighting the root chakra. Chief Nimble is tribal energy that represents leadership, community, and authority. These aspects coupled with the root chakra energy mean you can expect an emphasis on things related to basic needs such as home, work, and safety. This is about going within to your heart space and then letting it manifest outside in the universe. If your emotional self is not connected to your outer world, your foundation is asking to be rearranged. Spirit shows me pressing shuffle on a playlist and trusting you'll land on the right 'soul song' for you. Is there anything you need to rearrange this month in order to find harmony? What root issues do you need to address? Are your inner and outer selves in alignment? Facing fears will come up this month as you are asked to access a new level of fearlessness.
Purification is a keyword this month. You are asked to clean house, figuratively and literally. Open your windows and light that stick of sage. Get those crystals out in the sunlight, or under the moonlight, for a recharge. I like to describe emotional energy blocks as weeds. Until you address the root issue you're going to find yourself in a tiring cycle of pluck and repeat. So dig into root issues and be fearless about addressing material and necessary concerns. You deserve to feel safe and a sense of home. If you've been tending to your energetic garden and pulling weeds, hang in there because new growth is on its way. You can expect an exciting new bud to sprout up any time now. Pay attention to signs, and keep your eyes and ears open. Most importantly, don't quit right before the miracle occurs!
You'll also notice the fire element associated with this card. Spirit may be turning up the heat but you are reminded that you are only given what you can handle. Don't be afraid to explore things and try new methods and approaches. Sometimes we need to know what doesn't work before we can access what does. I'm shown the word independence being highlighted. This month is designed to move you closer to your self and some long-awaited new beginnings.
February is a month of two and I've always referenced the number two energy as a bit of a needed hug. You might be the one giving the hug, or you might be the one in need of it, but either way, let the internal and feminine side of the vibration keep you in a heart-centered space. This month is a meeting of the minds. Approach things with diplomacy and a positive detachment for optimal results. When dealing with earthy root issues it's more important than ever to trust your higher self to lead the way. One of my favourite visual tools is to picture yourself sitting on a mountain top with the ability to see the bigger picture from your higher self-perspective. Having your guides lift your vibration to this place will support you in progressing toward the most positive outcome.
Maeve (May-ve) - Moon, Goddess
A heart opening, embrace of Goddess and feminine energy. A strong sisterly bond, holding space for others, nurturing and maternal energy. Work with the moon cycles to sync your body and connect with Mother Earth.
Happy New Year! January is a month of one, so we kick off 2020 by looking at the energy of the number one. One energy is like an open door, it’s a time for new beginnings and manifestation. (Cue the white light and angelic music.) What’s interesting is that you’ll notice the card for this month is the same card we had for October, which was also a month of one. Think back to October and what happened for you in that month. What did you birth that month? Did a significant change or clarity take place? You will find the same energy further evolving this month, or similar energy taking center stage. Whatever you opened up to in October, you will find yourself now grounding into a deeper sense of authority and power within it.
And with a moon card we must note that the full moon falls on the 10th, which is…more one energy! So this full moon take advantage by visualizing or engaging in a ritual that celebrates new beginnings. As a New Year's suggestion, I like to keep a digital vision board. I’m not a fan of having a big poster paper plastered on the wall but rather a file folder on the desktop that you can drag and drop images and text into. This way you can easily add and subtract at will, as your desires may change throughout the year. Once in awhile open up your vision board folder and spend some time feeling and visualizing your intentions to support their manifestation. It’s neat to see what desires remain the same, and which ones you might outgrow year to year.
Communication and creation are the words spirit bring through as your focus this month. I’m shown someone sitting in stillness and listening. Sounds easy enough, right? Well, it’s easier said than done. People are more prone to talking than listening. You may find yourself wanting to hit the ground running and charge into 2020 right out of the gates but spirit is asking you to glide forward, not charge. Take the time to sit in stillness with spirit and practice your daily rituals in order to hear your divine guidance and act on it with awareness. If you leap before you listen you risk creating unnecessary setbacks and obstacles for yourself. Choose the path of least resistance as you set the tone for the year.
You’ll see from the card description above that one of the meanings of this card is a heart-opening. And with a heart-opening you are always receiving on a new level. That coupled with the one vibration has you asking yourself: What am I ready for? What do I deserve? Your responsibility is to allow and embrace it. This is why communication is key as you are guided to the action steps that will support your answered prayers. This is the time to ensure you open yourself up to the things you want. For example, if you’re looking to make new friends, you might spend some time looking for events or meet up groups that interest you. If you’re wanting to change jobs you might research and begin reaching out to worthy prospects. As you can see it’s all about starting to open, or to walk through, the open doors that the one energy is providing you. You set your intentions and let spirit guide your action steps to support the fruition of them.
It’s also important to highlight the power of the divine feminine/Goddess energy of this card which lends itself to your communication this month. This isn’t a time to sit back and let things slide but rather to practice self-honoring. If you’re setting the tone for the year then surely you want to do so from a place of self-love and self-esteem. This doesn’t need to be argumentative but assertive. If something negative is said or sent your way simply flip it by presenting the positive, or deflect and redirect. Nip negativity in the bud so you can stay centered in your positive new beginnings. If you're focused on moving forward with a blank page and clean slate you owe it to yourself not to let others pull you backward into the past.
May this 2020 year unfold with ease and grace for you, bringing forward your highest possibilities and greatest outcomes!
Edwin - Rebirth, Peace
A difficult cycle is coming to an end and relief is here. A time of blissful renewal and rebirth. A personal sense of deep peace and tranquility.
Winter solstice is December 21st and this is a most fitting card for it. Winter solstice is about the rebirth of the sun. It's a time to stand in your shadows of the past year and let the light illuminate them. This month marks a significant turning point in your transformation. The word that Spirit uses is actually, reinvention. Looking back on this year do you feel as if you've reinvented yourself? If so, congrats! That would mean you embraced change, rose to any challenges, and came out stronger and wiser. Don't fret if you don't quite feel that way yet. It takes time to become familiar with the newly evolved version of you. You will continue to feel more and more comfortable as time goes on. And before you know it you'll be looking back having a hard time remembering life before this re-birthed version of yourself. Head into 2020 with an intention of having fun as you discover all the new aspects of yourself that you've opened up and are ready to embrace.
We've all probably heard the saying, 'There's no time like the present', and this is how you can expect your New Year to kick off. This month brings the opportunity to renew your energy, reclaim your truths, and revitalize your spirit in preparation for the new year. Any practices where you focus on bringing light to your shadows will be most beneficial. You can light a candle(s) and stare at the flame as you relax, call on your guides, and then ask Spirit to shine white light into any lingering shadows or lower energy, fully cleansing it. You can do my favourite, simply stand in the sunlight with your eyes closed and feel the warmth and light fill and charge every chakra. Work with the light while releasing the dark with love, and you'll be on point.
Spirit says please take some time to write down or speak aloud what you would like the upcoming year to feel like. Not what you want to manifest, not what you want to have happen, but how you want the year to feel. If you're not sure, think about what you didn't like feeling this past year, and then simply take the opposite of that. For example, if you felt lonely, tired and overwhelmed, you want the coming year to feel loved, energized and balanced. If you felt unhappy and fearful, you want to feel joyful and confident. Beside each feeling write down one thing you can do that makes you feel that way and start putting it into practice. For example, if you want to feel energized, you might put working out, drinking enough water, or getting enough sleep beside it. Then every day, or when you're not feeling the desired way, look at your list and take the associated action step. This will be an easy way to hold yourself accountable while initiating small but sustainable changes that can bear a huge impact long-term. If you've been working your natural magic and things are feeling great, then just set an intention of continued growth and flow with all the positive energy.
This month you are asked to let go of any external focuses that are unnecessarily draining your time, energy, and resources in order to move into 2020 with a healthier foundation. For example, are you obsessing over politics as opposed to staying informed and invested in them? Are you spending more time scrolling through pictures of other people's moments instead of making your own? If you want to live your light you need to move from within, with a focus of self-responsibility. That is what will allow your desired feelings to unfold in the year ahead with the most ease and grace. It's not so much a pulling back this month as a pulling in. Spirit shows it as though the energy were a wave, one last 2019 ebb before a 2020 flow.
On the first of every month, I pull a card from my Faye Oracle Cards, which feature characters from my book, A Tale of Faye. I share what the card and character represent, as well as any additional insights my guides bring through so that you can be aware of the energy and make the most of the month.
