“If nothing else in this long and short life, let me be true to my conscience, to the dignity of my own heart. Let me act in a way that says, I have honored my spirit as truly as I have honored others. Let me stand tall and rooted as a mountain in the face of a quaking world.”
~ Jennifer DeLucy
Suddenly, here we are at February. After the fresh hopes and the new beginnings offered by January and the dawning of 2017, some of you may now be feeling a little less optimistic, a little less enthusiastic, a little more overwhelmed.
Or a lot.
But take heart. There is a groundswell of energy in February that speaks of a return to alignment and integrity, and a need for the values and principles of your heart to be reflected in the life you live. Breathe out fear and breathe in love. Anchor love and light in yourself and in your corner of the world. Radiate love and calm to those around you. And most importantly – live true to yourself and your values this month. Stand in your integrity. Speak up for what you believe in. Act from love and compassion. That’s what’s most needed in our lives and in the world right now.
Cards for the Month:
I’ve chosen two cards for February for you: one from the Osho Zen Tarot Deck, and one from Colette Baron-Reid’s Wisdom of the Oracle. Please note I don’t use these cards in the conventional way, but rather as a stimulus for channelled information.
Here is what I have received from each card:
“Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will.”
~ Suzy Kassem
February brings a counter-balance to the more exuberant energies of January. In February we’re asked to turn inwards, and to tune in to our own wants and needs. Find quiet time for reflection this month. Get some periods of time on your own, even if it’s just an hour. Walking, meditating, time in nature, quiet nights at home – these are all great activities for February.
This is an important month for staying true to yourself and your vision and goals, despite what other people might say or advise. No matter your own doubts in your abilities. Look for mentors and friends who will support you and lift you up. Sign up to study and self-enrichment work.
February whispers words of encouragement in your ear. It’s time to back yourself and your plans. It’s time to honour your truth and to be yourself, with no apologies. Work on your future. Commit to your ideas and decisions. Stay strong and trust yourself! Nurture that garden and plant more seeds.
It’s also a fabulous month for developing more intuition and psychic ability. This takes quiet time and the ability to slow down and pay attention to the world around you, and the feelings within your own body. Meditation will make everything better in February!
The second card I’ve chosen is Orphaned. The picture captures so well the devastating loneliness that comes when we try to change or disguise ourselves to fit in or gain approval, and even after all of that soul denial we find ourselves (or aspects of ourselves) unaccepted and unloved.
“The thought of being whoever I want is a terrifying thing, because I have only ever been who everyone has wanted me to be.”
~ Dianna Hardy
In February, decide that it is best to be yourself and to be loved for who you are.
Get counselling to help you overcome the wounds and pains of past or existing relationship.
Make your emotional well-being a priority. If you are in friendships, workplaces or love relationships where you have to keep yourself small or hide major aspects of yourself in order to satisfy others, or where the situation goes against your values and beliefs, consider leaving.
Life is too short to be unhappy in an unfulfilling situation. Better to give yourself the chance to be loved and appreciated for who you are by starting over somewhere else.
The truth is that you are beautiful, you are valuable, you are worthy.
You are lovable, and you have the right to emotional fulfillment and to be able to freely express your thoughts, ideas and beliefs by being yourself.
Someone will love you. Someone will resonate with who you are. There will be a workplace where you don’t have to suffer bullying. There is no need to change or to hide yourself any longer. And that love must start with you – loving and valuing yourself enough to decide that you will no longer accept second-rate relationships and situations where you are not respected or valued.
Best crystals this month?
Ametrine and White Howlite.
Ametrine is a rare stone that combines amethyst and citrine crystals. It promotes self-awareness, clarity and spiritual connection and gets you back in flow with your Higher Self.
White Howlite creates a sense of deep calm and peace, and helps you find answers and direction during dreams or meditation.
Essential oils to support your journey?
Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own for you this month, but they also make a delicious combination for diffusing. The essential oils you will find helpful in February are Rosemary, Lavender, Cedarwood, and Bergamot. Rosemary helps us to make good decisions and to problem-solve, Lavender keeps us in flow and relaxed, Cedarwood is grounding and supportive – especially when you feel anxious or overwhelmed, and Bergamot gifts us optimism and a sense of gratitude for our lives and the world around us. To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser. You can find the oils here.
