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. ‘Insecurity’ is from the Chakra Wisdom Oracle Deck by Tori Hartman.
If you read my forecast for June, you’ll remember that June is a gentle month of revitalisation, redirection and emotional and physical nourishment.
Now, lets look at the gifts Insecurity brings this week.
Have you ever hear of ‘Shiny Object Syndrome’? It’s that distraction tendency we can suffer from where we start something and then don’t finish it because we are suddenly distracted by another idea which we then hurry off to explore.
You might do this with anything. Business ideas, book ideas, love relationships, career choices, chores, study, diets, exercise programs – anything at all!
Suddenly it seems that there are so many choices, and surely one of them will be better than your current one. It can actually send you a little mad…
We all do it to some degree. But this week we are being supported to see this behaviour in ourselves and also to begin to understand the energy behind it.
We chase Shiny Objects for four main reasons:
- We lack confidence in our decisions and worry that there might be a better choice for us.
- We make our choices to please others, rather than tuning in and honouring our own wisdom and desires.
- We care so much about the outcome that we don’t want to mess it up or fail.
- Other people constantly undermine and devalue us and our ideas.
Use the energies this week to simplify everything down to the main things that matter. Then put more time into those few things. How do you do this? Take some quiet time and reflect until you get clear. Journal. Pull an oracle or tarot card. Lean in with God (or whatever you perceive that Divine to be), your Guides and your own intuition. This isn’t about listening to other people. It’s about FINALLY listening to yourself.
Stop overthinking and start doing. You’ll be amazed at how much that can change your situation.
Then start saying NO to all of the things that don’t support the path you’ve chosen or that will pull you away from thing you need to complete.
Stuck and at a complete standstill?
Just make a decision. Even the act of making a choice will give you momentum, and you’ll soon know if is the right choice or if you need to pivot to a better one. But at least you’ll be moving again.
There’s a tremendous energy of intuitive clarity, emerging confidence and hope for you to tune in to this week.
Make the most of it!
Supportive crystals this week?
Blue Quartz helps us to overcome anger, resentment and jealousy, and move to a place of better emotional balance. Green Chrysoprase opens our heart and helps with emotional healing and self-acceptance. Citrine helps us to bring the energy and enthusiasm back into our lives, so our thoughts become optimistic and clear. Fluorite encourages us to see the possibilities in ourselves, especially in regard to creativity or business.
Helpful essential oils?
Young Living’s Abundance essential oil blend, or a combination (or singly!) of any of Orange, Geranium, Frankincense and Myrrh. Abundance opens us to the flow of life, helping us to act from a place of love, trust and benevolence. Just rub a drop together in the palms of your hands and then breathe in and wipe through your aura. Dab a few drops on your wrists or over your heart – its warm, spicy aroma makes it a great perfume or cologne. A few drops in the bath are wonderful too. You may want to dilute with a drop or two of a base oil such a sweet almond or coconut before applying directly to the skin. It’s my oil of choice in my diffuser this week. You can find all the oils here.
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
