This is the introductory text. Amanda should write this as it will provide a consistency of tone cross all the article lead ins especially as some writers start more strongly than others.
The photo should also be appropriate to the subject. Artic fox cubs are cute but have little bearing on a holistic life solution.
A read more break should be inserted below the opening.
Wondering what to ask for this Christmas? Want something different but inexpensive? Ask for a Clear Quartz Crystal. This twinkling stone is the must have for your crystal collection. Known as the Master Healer, clear quartz will amplify any intention that you programme into it. It will also amplify the energies of other crystals.

And what do you use a colander for?
There are two main uses for a colander and all three can enhance your Joy@Work!
1. To SAVE the part you want.
The potatoes are rescued from the potato water in which they were cooking, and you are just left with the part you want to enjoy. What would happen if you metaphorically poured your work through a colander? Which would be the parts you want to keep and enjoy and what parts would you like to pour down the drain?
Sorry there’s no such thing…you’ve upset the balance, now is the time to restore it!
‘Tis the season to be jolly – although much of this jolliness tends to be alcohol-induced! Jolliness is one thing, unfortunately the line between feeling merry and feeling grim is very thin indeed!
That’s because alcohol wreaks havoc on you – your immune system crashes, your digestion is shot and your body’s chemical balance is haywire!
Flower remedies are healing solutions containing the energetic imprint of flowers, plants or trees which when taken can raise our own energy vibration making us feel better mentally, emotionally and subsequently physically.
Each emotional state we experience has its own unique frequency or vibration. With emotions such as anger and fear being low and emotions of love and gratitude being high. Our current emotion state directly affects our naturally high vibration state. Abraham Hicks quoted: ‘You don’t have to work at your higher vibration. Your higher, pure vibration is natural to you, but you have to let go of the thought which is holding your vibration down’.
Has the Grinch stolen your Christmas?
It’s the most wonderful time of the year... well, not for everyone. The month of December can be a particularly difficult time of year for those dealing with family conflict, loss, break-ups, divorce, loneliness, mental health issues, stressful end-of-year deadlines, poor eating & drinking habits and increasingly, cold and dark winter days. From this list, it is easy to understand that the holiday season might feel not-so-merry and bright for everyone. According to the National Institute of Health, Christmas is the time of year when people experience a high incidence of depression. Research backs up the view that the festive season tops the list of the most uncomfortable times of the year, beating Valentine's Day, New Year's Eve and summer holidays.
Here we are with the fiery adventurous Sagittarian energy well under way.
On December the 3rd the month kicks off with Mercury, the planet of communication, back tracking through the fire sign of Sagittarius. Some gasp at this transit seeing a retrograde as a negative aspect as communication and all things electrical slow down or appear to fail in some way. Of course this is not the case. This aspect reminds us to take stock and go over things we may have rushed or not dealt with efficiently. It’s not the time to buy new electrical items, sign contracts or book travel.
Here’s a way to increase your Joy@Work AND in your life generally and all you have to do is say two words! Worthwhile investment I think. And what are those words? Have you guessed? No! Not ‘You’re fired’, or ‘Go away!’ but ‘Thank you!
The star sign energy of Scorpio is in full flow. This water sign bringing insightful,secretive,passionate,creative and intuitive energy to life. The full Moon in the opposite sign of Taurus appears on the 5th. This is an Earth Moon with grounding energy. Taurus loves comfort and familiarity but it can also charge when needs be. So if you have your eyes on a target then use this practical time to get ahead. This is also the last Super Moon of the year so it has extra oomph.
This is my favourite of the quartz family. Smoky quartz gently dispels any negative energy in a room, in the body or the mind replacing it with strength, positivity and calm.
Smoky quartz will dissolve any fear and replace with confidence, concentration and focus and so aid with communication – fantastic for important meetings or speeches that need to be delivered – relieving stress.
Flower essences lift our emotions as they contain the energetic imprint of flowers, plants or trees which make us feel better mentally and subsequently physically. The remedies also open our channels for reception of inner guidance, so we naturally become more intuitive and know how we can help ourselves.
This is a time of much change. The clouds of chaos that Change kicks up can sometimes be confusing, troubling and can bring up much fear. Sometimes the fear is so strong, it can seem paralysing or debilitating. As we are all going through this, it is worth remembering that the resilience of ‘I AM’ is second to none. One can go through experience after experience, taking blow after blow – and like a rubber ball, ‘I AM’ bounces back up over and over again.
As the evenings are drawing in and thoughts turn to hibernating from the wind and the rain the beautiful, golden, shining qualities of Tigers Eye comes into its own.

I am continuing with the theme of ‘joy @ work’ as I believe that it is so very important. It is your life! And I am seeking different ways, one of which, I hope, will be just perfect for you. Are you starting to find some aspects from the past articles that are assisting you to find those gems of joy that are tucked away in a corner of your workplace and life?
It is the tucked away theme that I will continue to explore in this article. If you are struggling to get up and face work every day, or even most days, then joy is not what you will be thinking about most of the time.
