“When you walk to the edge of all the light you have and take that first step into the darkness of the unknown, you must believe that one of two things will happen. There will be something solid for you to stand upon or you will be taught to fly.”
~ Patrick Overton, The leaning tree: [poems]
It’s a little bit challenging choosing an oracle card just now. I don’t know my current 2016 deck well enough to read it when I can’t see, so instead I have fallen back on an old favourite – my Osho Zen Tarot deck, whose images I know by heart and blindfolded after twenty years of working with them.
Well then, let’s begin:
This week’s card? Adventure!
What does that mean for the week ahead?
We’re being asked to get out of our comfort zone. We’ve being asked to walk out into the unknown.
It means starting things without knowing where you might end up. It means putting yourself into situations where you can’t control the outcome. It means breaking out of routine to try something new. It means trusting in positive outcomes, even if your knees are shaking and it takes everything you have to keep putting one foot in front of the other.
For some of you, this is a week where you’ll look back years from now and see how this small and seemingly insignificant (although scary!) step you took was the one that changed everything.
For some of you, being brave enough to go outside your routine will mean new opportunities, new relationships, bold new discoveries or a rediscovery of something important that you need to be reminded of right now.
Many of you will find that getting out and about this week provides happy moments, shared joy and a boost to your social life. It’s also a great week to hold or plan parties, launches and grand adventures (think holidays and expeditions!) to be taken some time in the future.
The seven days ahead unfold a deeply spiritual week. A week that reminds us that we’re not alone. That the Universe has our backs. That miracles happen daily. That sometimes the crap we’ve been slogging through was only ever to enable us to step into a brighter future – wiser, stronger, clearer, better. It’s the kind of week where incredible ideas can just slide into your mind, or bubble to the surface. The kind of week where what seemed crazy just days ago now seems entirely possible.
Make sure to find time for joy this week – no matter how small that joy might be. Take time to sit in your favourite cafe, or to drink your favourite beverage – curled up with a book, a game or a loved one. Play your favourite music, dance and sing along. Go on a little adventure in your own home-town or suburb. Gee, you could even have that adventure in your own backyard!
If you’re looking for a crystal companion this week, you can’t go past Labradorite or Green Adventurine. Essential oils? Neroli, Jasmine and Rose.
This is a week for restoring hope, and we can always use more of that.
Sending much love to you, Nicole <3 xx

OH NICOLE. THESE CARDS ARE SO FOR YOU WITH YOUR CURRENT CONDITIONS. WRITTEN IN CAPITALS SO THAT YOU MAY BE ABLE TO READ THIS TOMORROW. THINKING OF YOU AND PRAYING FOR HEALING. LOVE. MARY.XXX
Thank you so much Nicole. This morning as we woke up Mark and I had all but given up, we thought it was hopeless and that our runaway son would not return home. It will be 2 weeks tomorrow and the pain i feel in my heart is unbearable. BUT, this is a week of hope and while there is hope there is a chance he will come home. Sending yo much love and praying for you on your healing journey. <3
Can this really be for me? I do hope so, I guess holding the vision is a good place to start, but of what? Me smiling from deep within rather than just a hopeful barely there cheeklift might start the magic. Thankyou Nicole and Bless You in your healing place 💜Love Sue xxx

So Much Love – Sue Girl.
Thank you so much for this Nicole. It spoke to me and is just what I need in my life right now when everything feels bogged down.
Returning much love and good thoughts to you, I need to restore some hope in life when it is about my daughter who is causing so much pain and distress for me and Tim at the moment
