“Often we may feel that something in us doesn’t want to be understood or healed. We don’t want to go to the doctor. We decide against taking a class. We’re tired of the friend who always tries to change us, give us advice, or figure us out. These feelings, sometimes dismissed as resistance or defense, may be Daphne sensitivities, honest emotions keeping the soul intact.”
From “Soul Mates” ~ Thomas Moore ~ (1779 – 1852)


Are you having a rough time of it right now?  Are you swinging between feeling positive, energised and clear-headed and demotivated, depressed and barely able to get up off the couch?

Many of the sensitive souls I know are experiencing these big swings, or at least having unexplained moments of just feeling emotionally ‘off’.  There is little of the enthusiasm we usually feel at the beginning of a new year.

But take heart, my sensitive friends. We aren’t done with 2012 yet, and that’s what you’re processing through your own bodies – the slow death of the old way of being, and the strained beginnings of new life. Birth and death always heighten the senses, and lots of what you’re feeling is internal processing of external energies.  In other words, it’s not you, and your sensitivity is actually being utilised to help clear residual energy patterns and anchor new ones.

And sweetheart, that’s part of what you signed up for! So thank you. 🙂


Here’s my First Aid Kit of suggestions to help you get through the next few weeks:

  • Get outside and get your bare feet on the ground. Grounding ourselves into the earth helps immensely.  Not sure how to ground, or even what it means?   Take the crash course here:  Staying Grounded in Uncertain Times
  • Stay hydrated with plenty of good clean water.  Avoid stimulants like caffeine, Red Bull and other energy drinks. Limit your alcohol intake.
  • Eat lightly, and choose foods that are fresh, seasonal and as unprocessed as possible.  Avoid sugar and junk food.  Fresh fruit and vegetable juices are always good choices.  Think GREEN.
  • Limit exposure to crowds and to toxic environments and people – you have enough to deal with right now.  Why add to your burden?
  • Use crystals. If you’re feeling ungrounded, overwhelmed or unsafe I recommend Black Tourmaline.  If you’re processing anger and other unpleasant lower vibration emotions use Carnelian or Hematite.  If your health is suffering and you feel the need to physically detox or re-energise a nice piece of Bloodstone or Mookaite.  For love and support a Rose Quartz will do nicely. I don’t recommend Smoky Quartz, Clear Quartz or Amethyst at this time – you don’t want to shield yourself, you just want help to process, let go, and be supported in doing so. Never used crystals before?  Go here : How to work with Crystals
  • PS *If it gets all too much, and you’re at the end of your tether go with Smoky Quartz!
  • Epsom Salts Baths are a fantastic emergency procedure. They cleanse the aura, and deliver a strong dose of magnesium to your body, to help soothe a frazzled nervous system and relax all your weary muscles.
  • Meditate. I’ve recorded or described a few simple meditations that you may find useful. The links for them are here:

  1. You’re such a darling…I’m definitely in this category and look forward to landing into 2013. Nature is always my best grounding…(((Hug)))

  2. Blessings Nicole, thanks so much for sharing your wisdom. My journey has felt confusing and challenging over the past few months. It is so good to put it into the context of the bigger picture.

  3. Wow! So that’s what’s going on! I’ve been completely out of sorts; depressed, overly emotional, irritable, lonely, lost, and unable to see the joy in any situation since the middle of December! I put it down to possible depression & took myself off to the doctor just before christmas to get a referral for a psychiatrist. My appointment is in early Feb but in the meantime I will use your advice. I have been feeling better this last week which I attribute to spending more time out doors but I do still feel a bit on edge. I feel as though I have been wanting to search for the answer but not really knowing where to look or who to ask. I am so grateful for your post. Thank you for giving me some answers & making me feel slightly more normal! Big love, trishxx

  4. Thanks Nicole, I have been bewildered! Ever since 1st January something has changed that I haven’t been able to understand. My best friend/house mate and I had been getting along great then it seemed instantly as we stepped into 2013 we have become distant and even irritable with each other and she and the situation are really bugging me. I think we both are feeling unsettled and uncomfortable and don’t know what to do about it. We both have turmoil with our families at the moment too. I think we all have a big 2012 hangover! I will try your suggestions. Love to you X

  5. I have this sensation of wanting to vomit even though I’m not physically sick or have pain. I’ve put that down to the “Big shift”.

  6. Oh darling sweet gorgeous, Nicole thank you so much for this post. I’ve been grappling with this since mid December, this funk, this…I know it’s not depression, so it’s really nice to know that while I suspected I wasn’t alone that I truly am not alone. Many are experiencing this and it’s just nice to know that if I continue to do the work and add some of your suggestions I will get through this. This blog post means so much to me and describes what I have been unable to articulate. Do you mind me re-blogging this with full accreditation to you of course 🙂

    Much love XXX

  7. Check, check, and double check to almost all of the above. But I’m so not going to put my bare feet on the ground right now. I live in Maine, and it’s COLD up here. I wants to keep my toesies.

    Now where are my pebbles again? Oh yeah, EVERYWHERE. No problem with that one. Ditto for pendulums. 🙂

  8. Oh oh oh! How amazing you are, I am grateful for your generosity. Thank you for helping me through this testing time of rebirth, yes It is a rocky boat at time but I can feel the light coming at last. Whew! Thank you for being there and guiding us. Much love Lyn xxxxx

  9. Thank you Nicole. I have had a week of migraines and feeling incredibly drained….just couldn’t put my finger on what is going on. Going to the shops was overwhelming for me and made me anxious although I have been trying the epson salt foot soaks. The fear gets the better of me sometimes (back to work soon and I cant cope with the migraines) but I am going to trust that I will be able to cope by then.

  10. Thank you so much for posting this. Your Epsom salt bath suggestion was beneficial for me as you mentioned a magnesium deficiency associated with certain symptoms. I checked what they were and it would seem I may need some extra magnesium. So thanks again for sharing. You always have such helpful posts! 😀

  11. Yes, this is exactly how I feel! My instincts have already led me to most of the items on your emergency kit list. I was carrying quartz crystals around however. I’m attracted to my blue lace agates. Thanks for your support on all realms.

  12. thank you! I really needed to read this to understand what is going on with me! your first paragraph said it all. my guides say trust and relax and I do, for a bit! getting creative, gardening and cleaning house to mention some activities, does help me get out of my head and ‘down’ thoughts! I will sit with my black tourmaline and rose quartz today. Thank You yet again, for your timely update. lots of love xo

  13. Ah bless you, perfect timing as always. Had a couch day yesterday, but my body really needed it. Off to do some creative fun and joyful stuff today to re-energise.
    Thank you!

  14. Wow, I have noticed it with my daughter. We are usually in sinc, I just didn’t know what was going on at the moment. I think we could both do with some bare feet on the earth time xx

  15. Thank you Nicole. I’ve been wondering about that. I feel like others have been and are hanging onto my “coat tails” and can’t shake it loose to get some sense of clear direction for myself. sometimes it’s a bugger being a light worker lol. Will continue with your tips.

  16. You are such a blessing Nicole! This is exactly how I am feeling at the moment! And interestingly I’ve been cutting back on my evening meals (and often skipping it all together) as I feel the need intuitively to eat more lightly at the moment.

    Sending you much love, Meg

  17. Thanks Nicole. I certainly felt like this this morning after feeding my daughter at 3am. I spent the next 2hrs tossing and turning, finally snuggling into my husband, asking for a hug and crying. I’d love to let 2012 go. As great as it was to begin with, it culminated in the very unpleasant and traumatic birth of my daughter, which I am only just beginning to realise WAS actually traumatic. I’m getting help, seeing someone today about it all, and if my daughter lets me have a nap today I might go outside and sit with the carnelian my best friend gave me for christmas.

    Thank you for your wisdom <3

    1. Hi Jo, yes, it WAS traumatic, but sooooo worth it. See if you can find some Alpine Mint Bush drops from Ian White’s Australian Bush Flower range for yourself. Carnelian is a great crystal for you right now, and so is Citrine. Much love to you xx

    2. Thank you Nicole, your words have just left me in happy tears. Thank you for recognising it was traumatic, as I keep thinking people won’t see it that way. I will endeavour to find some Alpine Mint Bush drops xx <3

  18. there are some morning as today that your words are just hat is needed. it was sharing my cuppa with you here to share these thoughts with me…thankyou

  19. Ahh, now this makes sense, I am unsettled & not fully understanding why. I shall accept what’s happening & will have patience as the year progresses 🙂
    Many many thanks Nicole x
