“Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.”
~ John F. Kennedy
Here’s the oracle card I have chosen this Monday, and my take on the energetic outlook for the week ahead. I use any oracle or tarot cards shown as a prompt for channelled messages and my own intuitive wisdom, so my take is sometimes quite different to the meaning found in a book. ‘Growth’ is from the Chakra Wisdom Oracle Deck by Tori Hartman.
If you read my forecast for February, you’ll remember that February is all about turning inwards, and tuning in to our own wants and needs, staying true to ourselves and our goals despite our fears or what other people may tell us.
So, what gifts does Growth bring for you this week?
Growth reminds us that it takes time to work out who we are. It’s okay to be unsure. It’s also okay if it feels quite strange to begin honouring our own wishes, desires, decisions and needs after a lifetime of putting them second or hiding them off to one side.
Be aware – a side-effect of you beginning to speak up, or behaving and choosing differently is that some people might suddenly think that you’ve gone mad. Or that you need advice or therapy!
When we shift and change it can be quite confronting for the people around us who are still in the same space, and who expect that we’ll keep on being the same too. Our change creates change in the status quo for them, and change can be uncomfortable.
Growth reminds us that change and uncertainty are okay. There’s nothing wrong with you. You don’t need to be fixed because you’re not broken. You’re just evolving.
A big old tree began as a seed, which became a tiny seedling. Over time it grew and grew until it took the form you see today. But just like you it’s a work in progress. How the tree looks today is not how it will look in a year’s time or ten years time. Life is about change.
Embrace that concept of change this week. Grow. Move towards the light.
Trust your intuition and instincts. Keep growing, even if you don’t know yet what you are evolving into. It will all be okay. Embrace not knowing. Just keep growing!
Supportive crystals this week? Ametrine, White Howlite, Fluorite, Orange Calcite, Labradorite, Moonstone, Carnelian. Go with the one that feels right to you, or choose a few.
Helpful essential oils? Young Living’s Joy or Acceptance essential oil blends, or a combination (or singly!) of any of Rose, Rosemary, Lemon, Vetiver and Lavender. The Joy blend is fabulous if you are feeling anxious or uncertain, or a bit sad or stuck. It’s reassuring and uplifting; wonderful for gently shifting depression and self-doubt.
Holding you, as always, in my thoughts, prayers and meditations, and intending for a you a life of abundance and joy, where you are no longer limited by your doubts.
All my love,
Nicole ❤ xx

Thank you. Spot on to what I am going through. It was as if written for me.
Nicole, I am not sure how you did that but that post resonated with me so strongly. At the moment I am in the process of moving a mountain of emotions and pain that are the remnants of years of abuse that began in my early childhood. Some call me a ‘survivor’ which I know is meant to be a compliment but I have now come to the realisation that I cannot stand living with this mountain any longer. On Saturday I took major steps which though I am fearing I hope will lead me to the most monumental change of my life, true healing and growth. I am very fortunate to have the support of my loving husband and children but I am still very nervous of where all this may lead. All my life I was led to believe that what they were doing to me was my own fault but now I know it wasn’t they had just managed to convince me of this because it had all started when I was only a toddler (brainwashing I guess you could say).
Please Nicole (and any other kind heart that may read this note) please keep me in your prayers as I go through this major change in my life for all I want is to reclaim my own self and heal so that I can move forward and grow into what I came into this world to be. Thank you.
Janine, I’ll add you in to my daily prayers and healing meditations. I know that you can do this! Go well. Much love, Nicole xx
Thank you Nicole that really means a lot to me. Janine xx

Thank you Nicole. Interesting week. Take care. x
Gosh Nicole. At the moment it’s like you’re writing these just for me. Thank you thank you thank you xx
We all grow as we age, some of us grow out and round and stubborn those types of growing are not so good but any growing is better then being dead
Love this post Nicole and the wise words of J.F. Kennedy
I’ve been feeling like something is going to happen, but I haven’t a clue what it is.
Hope you have a wonderful week Nicole.
I don’t know how you do this Nicole, but you really managed (once again) to hit the cord with this week’s reading! Tears of resonance and sadness mixed with the relief and hope from your beautiful and encouraging words just started streaming down my face as I read the text..!
I know I’m doing the right thing by learning to be honest and open to myself and others, but darn it’s scary sometimes! 😥 I didn’t even realize how much of my needs and desires I have kept inside me all these years… Feels good to finally say them out loud and notice that the world doesn’t end or the people won’t leave after all; in fact quite the opposite! ❤
Thank you, thank you, Nicole for all that you do and for remembering me/us in your prayers! 🙏
Ever grateful, Liisa
Just keep being brave, beautiful girl. It’s your life! You deserve to live it fully xx
