“I believe there’s a calling for all of us. I know that every human being has value and purpose. The real work of our lives is to become aware. And awakened. To answer the call.” 
~ Oprah Winfrey

This year my August Accelerated Channelling Retreat and Intensive Mentoring Program sold out in one day. Such was the interest that we decided to run the exact same course in February next year.

I promised people we would run the course again and then we asked everyone to wait to apply until we put up the new Expression of Interest and Course Outline. It should have been a simple thing to do, even though we have had to make adjustments to the 2019 program price because of cost increases from our suppliers. But I’ve kept holding off on announcing and filling the course. And I trusted that even though I didn’t know WHY I was holding off, that I needed to heed that intuition.

I became very ill with a virus and severe chest infection in late October and then spent all of November in bed. Among other complications, I lost my vision and I lost my voice and in the end all I could do was meditate. November was a powerful month for metaphysical work. During my many days of meditation I experienced the most intense spiritual journey I’ve had for many years and at the end of that time I understood that I needed to rework the February Channelling Retreat. I received very specific information to share on that retreat and in the supporting online course afterwards.

So, I’m pleased to announce that in addition to the existing Channelling and Sacred Geometry techniques I will teach on Retreat in February, this Retreat and Mentoring has a new focus. Announcing:

Connect To Your Calling – Residential Retreat and Mentoring Program

The next four years 2019 – 2022 are significant for our personal and spiritual evolution, as well as for the evolution of our planet. I know that many of you have incarnated into this lifetime SPECIFICALLY because you have a calling to be of service. You feel that calling deep in your heart. It’s a pull you can’t ignore and YOU FEEL READY TO STEP UP AND BE OF SERVICE in some way that only you can do.

On our 6-day residential retreat, followed by the three-month online group mentoring program I am going to show you how to use advanced Channelling techniques, shamanic techniques using Sacred Geometry, and personal journeymaking rituals and skills to help you:

  • clarify your calling
  • learn how to receive your own channelled guidance about your calling so that you can continue to deepen this journey and your understanding of yourself and your path long after Retreat is finished
  • how to define a path for actioning your calling in the wider world

Channelling isn’t just about connecting into energies and wisdom outside of yourself. It’s also about connecting more deeply to your own wisdom and soul experience. At its most pure channelling is a shamanic practice that will render you more authentically yourself, burning away the contrivances and insecurities that you’ve been hiding behind.

I designed this Intensive Retreat and Mentoring Program to give you the best possible support and experience for your spiritual journey. This course is all about getting you ready to do the work you came here to do or advancing your existing work in the world. If you’re ready and have been waiting for the teacher to appear, here I am.

Throughout our time together I’ll tune you up to these post-2012 energies and actively accelerate your psychic, spiritual and personal growth by teaching you a range of practices and techniques to open you to channelling, to your Higher Self, and to your Oversoul.

Give me six days of your life in early 2019, and a few short, regular, guided sessions each week for the following three months and I’ll take you to places you’d never thought possible in your metaphysical practice, enabling you to connect deeply to your calling and become clear about how to live that calling in the wider world. The practices and techniques I teach you will continue to grow and guide you long after our time together ends.

There is no more time. We have to step up. We have to be who we came here to be.

In your heart you know that’s true too. You feel that urgency. You’re ready. All you need is a place to start, and some support for that journey only you can take.

If you’re ready for the next stage of your spiritual journey CLICK HERE to access more information.

Then when you’re ready CLICK HERE to fill in your Expression of Interest.

But please act quickly because this course has limited places, a quarter of them are already allocated, and it will sell out.

I’m looking forward to working with you, Nicole xx

Learn To Meditate With A Mala!


“If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath.” ~ Amit Ray

Meditation has been my anchor since I was a young girl. It’s my daily go-to, to unwind, to calm my mind, to manage my anxieties, to reduce my stress, to deepen my spiritual connection, to know myself. Over the years meditation has also helped me navigate chronic illness and acute pain. I can’t think of a better way to bring myself back to calm.

I use a range of techniques when I meditate. Just like I have clothes in my wardrobe and I can select what I wear based on how I feel, I can also choose a meditation method, and one of the most accessible and easy meditation methods is using a string of beads called a Mala.

A Mala is a string of 108 beads. They are sometimes known as prayer beads, buddha beads or rosary beads.  Maybe you wear one as jewellery – they’ve become very popular lately, and it seems that every second person has one wrapped around their wrist or hung about their neck. But do you really know how to use one?

(In a hurry to get your Mala and Online Course? Go Here!)
Buy the Mala And Online Course

This is the Mala you will receive – 108 beads plus the Guru and Blessing Bead, all hand-knotted on black cotton and finished with a black cotton tassel.

When I am tired, stressed or overthinking using a mala in meditation gives my fingers something to do and occupies that busy part of my brain so that I can gently come back to a place of calm and peace. I hold each bead in my fingers one by one, and slowly travel each of the 108 beads. I might use my breath, a prayer, a mantra, a visualisation, or something more shamanic. And it transforms me. It soothes me. It heals and reconnects me.

I can’t recommend using a Mala highly enough, especially if you are the type of person who usually struggles with meditation, or who has never been able to do it in a way that has been helpful for you.

Even holding or wearing my Mala brings me peace.

If I am preparing to mentor students or run a retreat I will create a meditation Mala specifically for my group, with each bead representing a student. I chose a different style of bead for each person, one that will be immediately recognisable to my touch. When my fingers find that bead in meditation I can tune in to my student, assess how they are going, and send them healing, energy and direction. When the course is complete I will pull the Mala apart and send my students their personal bead for them to wear or as a talisman and keepsake.

And now I can help you to use a Mala too.

You can learn more about it and order it here in my Store.
Buy the Mala And Online Course

Would you like to buy your Mala knowing that it has been lovingly crafted in a fair-trade environment rather than some sweat-shop or underhanded place where the only motive is maximising profit? Would you prefer to buy and wear your Mala knowing that every bead has been blessed with love, and that the finished Mala has been blessed twice – once in a holy ceremony at a Hindu Temple in India and once in a crystal grid with prayers, meditation and my Tibetan Singing Bowl on my farm here in Byron Bay, Australia?

Would you like to buy your Mala knowing that you’ll be taught how to meditate with it and care for it so that it can do more than just adorn your neck or wrist?

I’ve had my very own meditation Mala designed and made. It feels incredibly soothing to hold or wear. I’ve also created a comprehensive five-day online course that teaches you all about the components of your Mala – what the beads and crystals mean – as well as three specific meditation techniques to help you use your Mala in meaningful ways. This is no light-weight course. I will teach you the things you would learn if you came to a workshop or retreat with me, including hands-on healing and 

This Mala will be a beautiful gift for you, or for someone you love who would benefit from learning meditation. The introductory price for this is just $95 AUD plus postage for both the hand-crafted Mala and the 5 day online course because it’s so important to me that you are supported in your life and on your spiritual journey.
All my love, Nicole ❤ xx

Navigating Christmas Without A Loved One


“You will lose someone you can’t live without, and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up. And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly—that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp.” 
Anne Lamott

Christmas is not always an easy time. There are many of us for whom Christmas brings stark reminders of families broken, loved ones lost, and empty chairs at our tables.

If you are navigating Christmas this year while also grieving loss or going through great struggle I want to reach out to you. In the midst of the barrage of happy Christmas movies, fairytale endings and Hallmark Moments I want you to know that I am sorry for your pain, and the hardship this time of year can bring. Please also know you’re not alone. There are many of us whose hearts hurt at Christmas, even as we celebrate, because of loss. If your grief is raw and new it’s also okay to put things on hold, to do things differently, or to let the anniversary days like Christmas slide by unacknowledged until you are ready to face them again.

I’d like to share something I do at Christmas that may be useful for you too. I have found it helpful and healing to make a private little Christmas Altar each year. This way I remember the dead, the absent, the lost. An altar is simply a small dedicated spiritual space that is meaningful to you in some way.

On my altar I place fresh flowers, a candle and some favourite crystals. Things that bring me comfort, and a sense of sacred. Then I place photos or objects that represent a loved one who will not be at my table. That way I can still have them near me, and I can flow love to them and have them be part of my life over the festive season.

The beautiful big owl in the photo above was given to me one Christmas by my friend Angela. She passed away a few years ago. It will be central to my display.

I’ll place a tiny wooden boat for my brother, and a ceramic pelican for my dad. A sparkly stone for my sister and roses for my mum and all of the women in her family who have shaped and grown and loved me. My family all live far from me. But now they are here on my altar even if they cannot be here in person.

I’ll add a photo of Ben’s parents from when they were young, and pictures of my grandparents too. I have cupcake-shaped candles for my darling Kate, who passed away too soon in 2010 ( I went back to her facebook page last night and was lost in there for an hour reading her old posts and laughing at what a dag she was and crying cos sometimes I still miss her more than breathing), and Julie who passed away in 2014. My Grandparents, all now passed, are here in photographs too and I will place a glass of sherry, Christmas Cake and some gingernut biscuits out because these are all the things they would have loved to eat, and later I will eat some and think of them. On Christmas Day I will play The Twelve Days of Christmas by the Ray Conniff Singers, because my Pa used to play that for us every year, and shed a few happy-sad tears.

It’s not the same as having them at my table, but it’s the next best thing. People coming to my house will think that I have simply gathered flowers and candles and photographs and a few ornaments together, but for me it is something healing and emotionally significant that helps me to feel the reassuring weight of my loved ones around me.

Perhaps making your own Christmas Altar will help you this Christmas too.

Sending so much love your way, Nicole ❤ xx

Follow Your Longing – Monday Oracle 10 December 2018



“The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.”
~  Oprah Winfrey

Hello, Lovelies!

December is a month for planning and dreaming, interspersed with fun, curiosity, friendship and celebration.  Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card Seven of Swords brings us.

This week we’re reminded that our imagination exists for a reason and so do our longings. They create the sparks that make a trail of light through the darkened world, leading us to the things that will give us satisfaction, and for which our soul yearns.

Seven of Swords encourages us to stop wishing and start acting this week. If there is no time for action then at least we can create a plan, we can make decisions, we can choose to make space in the near future for more of what matters in our lives.

Feel into your envies, your frustrations, your jealousies and your hungers this week. Don’t be ashamed of them. Don’t turn away. Be brave enough to look into the face of what they are showing you. Let your soul come alive with desire again. Unchain yourself from the humdrum of duty, obligation and routine. Allow possibility to slip into your heart and illuminate you with hope once more. Vow to yourself that your future can be different, and then make room for that to happen.

Supportive crystals this week?

Petrified Wood (pictured) promotes compassion, wonder, curiosity and benevolence. It is a stone for healing old hurts and allowing hope back into your heart. Amazonite helps you to live bravely and from your heart, especially in regard to your creative projects. It will boost self-confidence and self-worth. Tree Agate heightens your intuition, connecting you to synchronicity, soul wisdom, guides and universal energy. It will help you to work out your priorities and where to best spend your precious energy. Snowflake Obsidian is a wonderful stone for any form of pattern-breaking, helping you to invite or invoke change.

Helpful essential oils?

Coriander essential oil is a good choice for your diffuser this week. It helps you to know yourself, and to reconnect with your truth. To make an effective blend to boost confidence and optimism add Bergamot, Geranium and Cinnamon Bark in a ration of 4:3:2:1.

Cinnamon also gives that lovely spicy Christmassy feel to a blend, helping put you in the holiday mood.

I’m passionate about essential oils and their capacity to support our wellness journey and our spiritual and emotional wellbeing. If you’d like to know more or want to source the oils I recommend and trust visit this site or contact me at channelnc@gmail.com

A space to learn and grow

The next four years 2019 – 2022 are significant for our personal and spiritual evolution, as well as for the evolution of our planet. I thought long and hard about the best way to support your growth over that time and have decided that beefing up the content in my YOM membership area was the best way to help you grow, adapt and step more fully into your authenticity and the life-path you chose for yourself pre-birth. You’ll see this membership group evolve into an Academy of Learning over the next twelve months so that my team and I (human and energetic) can serve you the best way I know how.

My membership space is a place where I can walk you through the year, explain all the aspects of the month ahead and the crystals we’ve chosen, where I do special webinars with my tribe to teach you new skills and share important information, and where I channel with my guides in live webinars, and answer your questions and provide general support. I often jump into our private Facebook group to pull cards and bring through messages for our members too. And did I mention what an incredible, loving and supportive space our YOM Community is? There is real friendship and belonging there. It’s a safe space, a heart space, and a place for great personal transformation. I totally heart it!

The format of YOM is constantly evolving. In 2019 you will have access to the foundation YOM online course as well as twelve free additional mini-courses and live events over the next year as well as our wonderful private Facebook group.

There are yearly subscription and monthly subscription options. Our Planner and a range of physical support materials and packs and online courses are available too. Everything you need is available through our store.

Holding you, as always, in my thoughts, prayers and meditations, and intending for you a life of abundance and joy, where you are no longer limited by your doubts.

All my love,

Nicole ❤ xx

PS: Monday’s oracle card, ‘Seven of Swords’, is from the Inner Child Cards – A Fairy-Tale Tarot. I use any cards shown as a prompt for channelled messages and my own own intuitive wisdom, so my take is sometimes quite different to the meaning found in a book. 

Panettone Heaven – Our Trip to The New Farm Deli


“If your mother cooks Italian food, why should you go to a restaurant?”
~ Martin Scorsese

Tradition has always been important to me. Maybe it’s because I’m a Virgo. Or perhaps I have Royal Blue in my Aura. Or maybe it was the way I was brought up. I’m not sure.

One of my favourite traditions when I moved from the bush to New Farm in Brisbane, back in the 1990s, was to visit the New Farm Deli. A family owned and run delicatessen it had first come onto my horizon because my Italian-food loving grandparents Marga and Ceddie would take me there as a child, to source the many wonderful ingredients my grandmother would cook with. Suddenly I lived just blocks away, and it had incredible coffee and food and shelves and cabinets full of marvels that just weren’t available anywhere else in Brisbane.

When I was growing up, Christmas was always a family thing. A coming together of grandparents and cousins and groaning tables full of food, and always a card table to some other small table where the excess kids were sat. It was also a full-on cooking saga of epic proportion.

As I grew up it was me who became the cook. Often I would spend almost my entire Christmas Day in the kitchen, prepping, cooking, serving and then cleaning up. I didn’t mind. It was my idea of heaven, to make and serve food to the people I loved. Most of antipasto came from the New Farm Deli. It has become a new tradition for me.

Now I am grown, old even, married with no kids, and with our families greatly diminished in numbers and scattered to the winds. That really ended my previous family Christmas traditions, and so we started a new one – Orphans Christmas – where we invite other lonely people to share a meal and some company. With supplies from the deli, of course!

My husband’s Mum comes from a proud Italian heritage, and because of her (and my own maternal grandmother’s love of all things Italian) I was introduced to Panettone, an Italian sweet bread loaf a little like a cake – fluffy and risen and studded with candied and dried fruits or amazing fillings of sweet custard or chocolate chips. The New Farm Deli was where we would buy them and over time I learned the many ways of serving or cooking with them – although my favourite still remains eating a slice fresh with a good coffee or a glass of sherry or prosecco.

You can start a new tradition at any time! Ours now is to have Panettone, a freshly squeezed orange juice or glass of champagne for breakfast, followed by good coffee and perhaps one more slice… We also save our very best Panettone for New Year’s Day, and eat it on the verandah with our friend Carly who stays with us at that time of year. We make coffee, eat Panettone and pull cards for the year ahead. Glorious! Panettone will also make the basis of our Christmas Lunch Dessert this year, but I’ll blog that recipe and a few others next week.

Vince Anello and his staff have added a fine selection of Panettone over the years. I defy you to find a better selection in Brisbane, or perhaps Australia. If you live in or close to Brisbane why not go visit, grab a coffee or a meal at the cafe and then wander the deli, choosing your Panettone and a basket full of other delights for yourself or as gifts. It’s a lovely tradition and a delicious one!
Hugs and love, Nicole ❤ xx

PS. If you want to start another new tradition for yourself why not grab one of my YOM Planners to help you live a more mindful, grateful and connected life in 2019, or get my Meditation Mala and bonus online course so you can start a tradition of regular meditation for yourself. It’s all here in my shop.

Announcing Our New Membership Group!

 

“Home is a notion that only nations of the homeless fully appreciate and only the uprooted comprehend.” 
Wallace Stegner

“Travel does not exist without home… If we never return to the place we started, we would just be wandering, lost. Home is a reflecting surface, a place to measure our growth and enrich us after being infused with the outside world.” 
Josh Gates

When I was younger, and then when I was going through my own spiritual and psychic awakening in my early twenties, all I yearned for was someplace to belong. Somewhere where I could be myself, somewhere I could be in the company of others just like me, where I could speak about my feelings and experiences, my fears and insecurities, my dreams and hopes – and where, in that place, people would nod their heads in acceptance and understanding.

I yearned for a group like that my entire life but didn’t find one until I created that group for myself. That group is the YOM group, grown out of a loyal band of souls who had already been students or readers of my blog and who encouraged me along in the creation of my very first Planner.

It’s a place where I can be fully myself, with all of my mystical capacity and all of my human vulnerability. It’s a place where you can belong as well.

If you’re hungering for a safe and supportive place that will help you to grow spiritually, if you are intuitive or empathic or highly sensitive or psychic – or think you might be – this is the group for you.

Are you ready for a supportive and friendly community of like-minded souls? Are you ready for friendship and emotional connection? Are you ready to learn more about yourself, the energetic world, and how to live a more fulfilling and meaningful life?

If your answer is yes then come join the YOM group!

The next four years 2019 – 2022 are significant for our personal and spiritual evolution, as well as for the evolution of our planet.

When You Lose Track Of Time You Know It’s Love!

“How did it get so late so soon?” 
Dr. Seuss

At 8.30pm last night I told Ben I’d be in bed soon. I just had to do one little thing first…

A little after 2am this morning I looked up and to my surprise hours had suddenly flown by.

Has that ever happened to you? You got engrossed in something and lost all track of time?

The picture above is of my desk, at the end of my last big session of putting our pre-order Planner and Mala packs together. I was listening to music, channelling crystals for people and making special personalised essential oil blends and writing Christmas Cards and pouring love into everything and my night just vanished!

So I’m writing my blog now and scheduling it it post for me in a few hours and meanwhile, hopefully, I’ll be asleep.

Oh my goodness, I am so proud of our Planners and Malas and all our new online courses. I’ll tell you all about them tomorrow and they’ll all be up in our store for you tomorrow too. But first I need some sleep. After I do my 4am meditation (at 3am) because it seems dumb to go to sleep for an hour only to wake up and meditate. I’ll be sending you all lots of love and light and blessings to help you navigate the last of these current energetic shifts.

The pic below is me happy and loved-up and ready for my meditation. Yay for big nights of soul-calling work. (And yes, I still can’t see properly so I am not looking directly into the camera because I couldn’t see where to look!)

Love you! Nicole ❤ xoxo

Feeling Unexpectedly Cranky? You Need To Read This!

“But I am very poorly today & very stupid & I hate everybody & everything. One lives only to make blunders.” 
Charles Darwin, The Correspondence of Charles Darwin, Volume 9: 1861

 

Hello, Lovelies!
I’m checking in with you today. How are you feeling? Everything okay?

If the answer is that you’re fine and fabulous that’s great. Go make the most of the energies of this wonderful week. I didn’t write this post for you.

But if you’re not in that ‘super-happy rainbows and puppies and unicorns’ kind of place, read on.

Have you got the crankies, dear friends? Woken up in the past few days feeling crotchety and out-of-sorts and you don’t know why?

It’s not you. Honest.

Right now we are going through the end of a months-long energetic shift and realignment. Deep down on a cellular level, if you’ve been holding onto old unexpressed emotions from earlier in your timeline, they’ll be working their way to the surface as they leave your body. It might be a constant feeling, it might come in waves, and it will be worst just after you wake up and any time you push yourself into fatigue.

You don’t need to do anything, you don’t need to clear these old emotions – they’re already going. Don’t try to therapise or evaluate them. Just acknowledge them, be gentle with yourself, rest if you need to (big energetic shifts are exhausting) and know that you’ll be feeling lighter and brighter as these heavy old energies depart. I also recommend that you extend kindness and compassion to the people around you who may also be clearing energies and who are acting and feeling cranky too.

Some of you will already be out the other side of this shift. For the rest of us, it will all clear over the next few days.

If you feel like you want some practical steps to support yourself try any of the following:

  • Drink plenty of water and make sure you maintain your electrolyte levels.
  • Eat high vibration foods – lots of fruits and vegetables. Root vegetables are super if you are feeling ungrounded.
  • A combination of 3 drops of tea tree, 3 drops of geranium and three drops of frankincense in your diffuser will work wonders.
  • Any of these crystals worn or held will help so go with what you’re drawn to – smoky quartz, amethyst, bloodstone, red jasper, carnelian, citrine, fluorite, black obsidian or snowflake obsidian.
  • Spend some time in nature, and if you can stand barefoot on the ground then do so.
  • Paddle or swim in salt water.
  • Take an Epsom salts bath or foot soak.
  • Get some quiet time on your own.
  • Rest, relax and recharge.

Remember, this shift is a good thing! Who needs to lug around old, redundant energies and emotions? Let’s make room for better and bright possibilities and new experiences that will uplift and enrich us.

Biggest hugs and love to you, Nicole ❤ xoxo

A Perfectly Wonderful Week For Adventures – Monday Oracle 3 December 2018

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.
~  Roald Dahl

 

Hello, Lovelies!

December is a month for planning and dreaming, interspersed with fun, curiosity, friendship and celebration.  Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card Child of Wands brings us.

This card heralds delightful energies for a week of adventure. For some people that means outings, unexpected invitations or a sudden strong yearning to break free and go do something different instead of being shackled to routine and boredom.

You’ll also find a note of optimism creeping in, and a newfound appreciation for the small details of your life and the world around you.

It’s a week of surprises, inspired thinking, emotional shifts and big breakthroughs. You’ll have an extra store of emotional courage and personal bravery this week, helping you to put yourself out into the world. Child of Wands reminds us that we can go beyond our current limits, and that we can choose to see ourselves and our lives differently – so that a new and brighter future becomes possible. Map those ideas out and begin making a plan. Ideas are no good if they have no action to back them up and turn them from thought into reality.

If you’re a creative soul you’ll find the ideas literally pouring into your brain and body this week, and you’ll feel itchy for some kind of outlet for the expression of all of this energy. Make sure you take the time to capture those ideas in a recording or on paper. Then make a start, no matter how small. It could end up being a life-changing project for you!

Supportive crystals this week?

Petrified Wood promotes compassion, wonder, curiosity and benevolence. It is a stone for healing old hurts and allowing hope back into your heart. Amazonite helps you to live bravely and from your heart, especially in regard to your creative projects. It will boost self-confidence and self-worth. Orange Calcite connects you to inspiration and is great for all forms of creativity.

Helpful essential oils?

Hands down it’s Geranium again this week. Geranium is such an underestimated essential oil. With its sweet floral scent it’s brilliant for helping you relax, unwind and get connected to your essence. It will uplift you and stimulate creativity, sensuality and emotional flow – all energies that are great for shifting us into a more creative space. If you’re an over-giver and your tank is dry, geranium oil will fill you back up again.

Apply it to your pulse points at wrist, neck and over heart like a perfume. Place a few drops in your bath water. Diffuse it. One of my favourite uses is as a centering and inspiring pick-me-up. Put a drop in the palm of your hand, rub hands together and then inhale the aroma. (Here’s a simple three-minute meditation you can do using geranium or any of your favourite essential oils – click here)

For relaxing, enjoying life and lifting your mood try any of these oils on their own or in combination – Wild Orange, Lavender, Geranium, Frankincense and Cinnamon Bark. Cinnamon gives that lovely spicy Christmassy feel to a blend, helping put your house in the holiday mood.

I’m passionate about essential oils and their capacity to support our wellness journey and our spiritual and emotional wellbeing. If you’d like to know more or want to source the oils I recommend and trust visit this site or contact me at channelnc@gmail.com

Holding you, as always, in my thoughts, prayers and meditations, and intending for you a life of abundance and joy, where you are no longer limited by your doubts.

All my love,

PS: Monday’s oracle card, ‘Child of Wands’, is from the Inner Child Cards – A Fairy-Tale Tarot. I use any cards shown as a prompt for channelled messages and my own own intuitive wisdom, so my take is sometimes quite different to the meaning found in a book.
