“When you follow a star you know you will never reach that star; rather it will guide you to where you want to go. … So it is with the world. It will only ever lead you back to yourself.”
~ Jeanette Winterson, Boating for Beginners
I’m sure you’ve been noticing it, these intense energies of the last few weeks. The energies are astrological and are caused by planet positioning, the super moon, eclipses, solar flares and storms, and geomagnetic disturbances here on the earth with earthquakes, flooding and cyclones/hurricanes. These energies affect us physically, and sometimes mentally, emotionally or spiritually.
For some people this has manifested as a crushing fatigue coupled with an inability to sleep deeply or well, to the point where they wonder if they have succumbed to some terrible as-yet-undiagnosed disease.
For many there has been an increase in anxiety, sadness for no reason, digestive disturbances, jitteriness, short-term memory loss, headaches, migraines, foggy thinking, dizziness, heart palpitations, shakiness, balance and co-ordination issues, heartburn and tummy upsets.
Some people have found themselves angry, rageful, frustrated and bitter with a sudden resentment. They are fighting with their loved ones. They feel hopeless and worthless and like everything they do is crap, or will amount to nothing.
Some folk are fearful, worried that tragedy is around every corner, is stalking their families, is a heartbeat away from destroying everything they hold dear. They fear that they will be rejected, abandoned, and ostracised.
Did I mention it’s intense?
And then there’s this weird feedback loop. All the things we’d thought we’d dealt with seem to be suddenly coming back and staring us in the face again. Taunting us. Mocking us. Making us fear that we are sliding back into a hole that took us a long time to crawl out of. Sometimes we see these broken or unbalanced parts of ourselves when we look in the mirror. Sometimes our loves ones mirror them back to us in a way where we realise that what they are showing us is really as much about ourselves as it is about them.
At times recently it has felt as if every good thing we told ourselves that was possible, or that others told us was possible, was a handful of dust and lies.
And then the past few days… The past few days have been brutal. Especially if you’re a sensitive soul. We’ve had a massive increase in solar flare activity and electromagnetic disturbances which have impacted many of us on many levels. Some of us have been almost on our knees with the energy of it all.
But take a deep breath.
Some of you will already feel a little lighter. Things will begin to feel more hopeful. You’ll find yourself with energy again, and clarity will return.
What we’re experiencing is not just solar flares and a geomagnetic storm – it’s also a big energetic shift, and the shockwaves of that shift are rippling though us, stirring up the dust in our corners and the fears and pains trapped in the lower vibration of our being.
Let it go.
It’s up to you. You can ride it out, and it will pass. For some people, that will be enough.
For those of you who feel called to self-discovery, this can be a time of massive insight and breakthrough.
Know that facing and exploring things which cause you pain or that hold painful memories will allow you to find the key that unlocks the door to a deeper level of yourself. As you shed a little light in those dusty corners of your soul you’ll be able to call back those broken, rejected and abandoned parts of yourself. This in turn allows reintegration so that you can step more fully into your power; the power that comes from being self-aware. This in turn leads to greater self-acceptance, and self-love.
No matter what path you choose, journalling, sitting quietly in reflection, doing things that bring you joy or that relax you, spending time in nature, all of those will be useful activities right now.
Further tools for support:
Nutrition – drink plenty of water and up your magnesium intake. Listen to your intuition around food choices, and steer clear of sugar and too much caffeine. Give your nervous system a break.
Crystals – For anger issues – red jasper. For gaining clarity – clear quartz. For fear – hematite. For feelings of abandonment and lack of love – rose quartz. If you’re freaking out about money and financial security – citrine. You can hold the stone, pop it in a pocket, wear it as jewelry, or place it under your pillow. These stones will also work well for pets or children – just place crystals in sleeping area or under bedding.
Essential Oils – Lavender is an excellent all-rounder right now. I am also loving Young Living’s Peace and Calming Blend (perfect for pets and kids too!). Cedarwood oil rubbed onto soles of feet and back of neck will help with grounding you and promoting restful sleep – and is awesome when used in conjunction with Lavender. Frankincense is another useful one for tuning in to a stronger spiritual and intuitive connection. If you need help sourcing these oils you can contact me here.
Grounding – Grounding yourself into the earth is a very nurturing and stabilising practice. You can learn simple grounding techniques here and at this post: Unblocking and Grounding your Foot Chakras
Epsom Salts Baths – Epsom salts baths are fabulous for detoxing, grounding, soothing frazzled nerves and cleansing our aura. Click here for instructions.
You’re not alone in all of this. So many of us have been affected by these energies. Draw strength from the knowledge that you are sensitive. Be brave and open to that sensitivity, and allow yourself to grow and transform.
Much love, Nicole xx

Thanks so much Nicole! Have been reading about the March energies but this post was spot on. Maybe I’m not losing my mind after all ….thanks again!
I have been contemplating this post for the last few days, I am slightly freaked out ! When I first read it I could relate completely to everything …… The thing the struck me the most was that I had decided it increase my magnesium intake had added Epsom salts fresh peppermint, lemon balm and rosemary leaves to my bath and have been allowing myself to rest whenever I could. As I read the post on the table beside me was my New Years resolution word “earth” rock which just happens to be a large piece of red Jasper. Yikes. I’m really becoming more and more interested in how we are effected by the universe above where oh where can I learn more? Are there any Australian websites etc anyone can recommend ? Thanks a 💐. 🐲love the 🌚🌞🌒🌓🌔🌕🌖🌗🌘🌍🌌🌠🌠🌠🌠
I have been taking hot baths with Epsom salts & lavender oil most nights this week 🙂
I fell in here via the tovarysh connection and enjoyed the dip. I’ll be back. You have a lot of good information here. Heading for more rescue remedy and lavender spray. It’s what I have handy. My son was testy yesterday with me and that almost never happens. We got it worked out but now I understand why. Thank you for taking the time to let us know what can help not just what’s causing this.

Yes that would be me. Although today I do feel a bit lighter, this week has not been good, headaches score throat and ears, crying at the drop of a hat, …. Thank you for the insight xxx

Thank you beautiful Nicole xx💗

I needed this…thank you!
“Intense.” Yes, spot on, Nicole. Also this, “Making us fear that we are sliding back into a hole that took us a long time to crawl out of.”
I have been exhausted physically and emotionally. Thank you for showing light at the end if the tunnel. Oh, and for the tools for support.
Peace to you.
Hi Nicole, Thank you sooooo much!!!! It was brilliant. I found myself nodding and saying, yes, yes, yes to every single word and then I read, Breathe! Perfect! So, I stopped and I spent a few moments just being in that space. It certainly has been a great soul searching experience but you are right, I do feel lighter and with more hope. I loved the remedies, so simple and yet so effective. I am so grateful for all you have written as when we are in the thick of “stuff”, we tend to think that it is only in our own world. Then you hear of others who are suffering from similar, but different “stuff”. I can now rest……it will pass!!! Once again, a huge thank you. Hope you have a brilliant day filled with sunshine, laughter and love xxx
Thanks so much Nicole. I can’t get over how reading your words has helped ease the feeling and normalise it. I was beginning to think I was really losing it! Packigna few oils to take away with me now and my clear quartz. Much love Nikki 🙂
Thanks Nicole 🙂 I have been reading about some of these energies, but after reading your post, it explains why my husband is so tired (yes I have actually have wondered if he was sick with something), my daughter in law very anxious about one of her dogs (who is probably suffering from the energies) – and so on…. oh and the loop with things coming back up that I thought were dealt with. I have been meditating, grounding every morning in the garden, and drawing, drawing, drawing. Have magnesium powder, but will have the baths too. Thanks for the great post, I think I clicked on all the links so have had a lovely read. Have a peaceful, relaxing weekend. Take care xxxx
Thank you for this beautiful post. It is exactly what’s been happening for me. Especially the part of the stuff I thought I had dealt with. The past few days I have had lots of space for me and things have eased in my world. I have started writing again and am reading for the next stage.
Have a magical day.
Love Jacq xx
Thank you! I’ve been really affected by this energy and it’s a relief to know that it’s not just me and that it will pass. Embracing the turmoil and the positive changes that will come from it.
This brought tears to my eyes, you are right on the money with this. I have been experiencing all of the above and freaking out is the term I’d use too and last night well, the news we received was brutal. I shall be breathing in, rubbing on and maybe even drinking lavender today! Thanks for the heads up on whats going on.
Thank goodness there is an explanation for my lack of energy, my need to sleep up to 10 hours a day and still wake feeling like I have only just hopped into my bed! Thankfully it is passing.
Epsom salts bath for me tonight! Thank you xx
Thank you Nicole. I have felt it too. I’m glad it is passing xox
Been baffled this week wondering what on earth is going on! Thanks for clearing that up, it makes perfect sense. Thank You!!!
Much love to you
Nearly started crying when I read this. What a relief!!!! It’s just the energies!! Now I get it…….. I shall take a deep breath and trust that all will be well….. Thank you so much again 😘
Thank you, thank you, thank you! Phew, it’s not just me. Relief.
Thank you for this post Nicole. Just what I needed to read this morning. Wishing you a beautiful day. Thank you. Arohanui xo
I feel better for reading this. Thx 🙂
