The Owl and The Night Sky

“Listen to the mustn’ts, child. Listen to the don’ts. Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me… Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.”
~ Shel Silverstein


I was totally spent yesterday. We’ve had some personal stress in the past few weeks, some health issues, some family stuff. And of course so have my clients. I’ve been working overtime supporting them. I’ve also been supporting my students as we move towards my Beginners Channelling Retreat this weekend. It’s been an intense month.

The energies of April have brought all manner of things to our attention, things that we must face in order to move forward or to break free. For those of us doing the work, the work has been huge. (Don’t worry, May is much more gentle and it will be here soon!)

Last night I was heavy with emotion and exhaustion so I went and sat in the cold Autumn air, on a chair under a big tree.

It was quiet. The skies above me were heavy with stars.

And then the wonder happened.

A huge storm, out to sea, lit the night.

Huge vaulted clouds lit up with silent rivers of light. Sometimes white. Sometimes orange. Small displays and then an occasional grand one.

The sky would go dark. Night would go on. Then bursts of light and grandeur again. It was spectacular.

As I sat in the dark I heard a sudden whoosh of wings and a powerful owl flew down to the ground just feet in front of me. She alighted again with a small creature in her talons and flew over to the clothesline to eat her dinner.

Such wonder on an otherwise ordinary night.

That’s the thing about wonder and miracles. They are all around us, all the time, if only we have eyes to see.

I’m holding you all in my prayers and meditations as we move through these last confronting and cleansing days of April. Be open to change, my lovelies, and know that it is for the better, no matter how hard it may be.

All my love, Nicole xx

  1. I had chills down my spine reading your description of the storm and the visiting owl.
    The messages available to us are only noticed by those who look for them. The analogy of distant storms and the revealing of powerful wisdom moving/active nearly invisibly around us is timely and comforting.
    Much love and strength to all the light workers xx

  2. My fine feathered messanger of change was a black crow that has nested in my walnut tree. Defending oits territory it began to leck at my window. So unsettling that I searched crow’s meaning, change of course! Thank you Nicole for enlightening us all. Bless

  3. When I come to read your blog it’s like reading my thoughts & feelings…,I have been feeling very emotional this month & last 2 days just in tears….just waiting for miracles Nicole !

  4. I always find your posts so enlightening and what I need to hear. I have felt like I am reeling and lost and tired, so very tired. But there is a little voice saying, keep going, you can get there. A little light that is asking to grow. It makes sense now, thank you my friend for the reinforcement you bring. Sending you love back a million times over.

  5. Your posts always seem to come when I need them most. This year has been challenging and then this month I’ve been hit with new health issues which are really worrying me. I am thankful for your words they give me pause to breath and think. I am sorry you have had such a hard time lately. Hopefully May will be better for all of us.

  6. Nicole, those words ring so true for me…I almost burst into tears last night because I felt so overwhelmed by my workload! Bring on May because April has been demanding and exhausting.

    Your words provide so much reassurance, thank you 😊

    Kindest regards
