“Inner guidance is heard like soft music in the night by those who have learned to listen.”
~ Vernon Howard
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. ‘Dissipating’ 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 Dissipating brings this week.
We are cautioned against all forms of dissipation this week.
What does that mean? Dissipation can be defined as an act of diffusion (watering down), dispersion (scattering) or of wasteful expenditure.
In a month that is all about self-nurture and attending to our own priorities we are reminded not to bleed out for others at the expense of ourselves. Don’t end up with no fuel in the tank for what matters. Don’t be busy for busy’s sake. Don’t talk endlessly about the thing you want to do without actually taking any action steps towards it. As my darling guide Rollo often reminds me, don’t feed the chickens (ie don’t waste time helping people who don’t appreciate it, or on people or tasks that time suck – taking you away from important priorities). Chickens are never satisfied and will keep pecking away at you and invite their friends for a free feed too!
It’s wise to be mindful of whom you share your stories, hopes and ideas with. Don’t choose people who will put you and your ideas down, or be less than supportive. If you don’t know how your idea will be received then keep it to yourself until it has taken enough form that it won’t easily be knocked down or ruined by the criticism (even well-meaning!) or negativity of others.
And do you see that beautiful golden bird in the bottom left of the card? That’s YOUR bird. If you listen carefully the bird will sing you a song that creates a map for heart happiness. Problem is, most of us have trained that bird to sing songs to make everyone else happy. What could you learn about yourself if you opened up to that magical song this week? How could that change your life?
It’s a very important week for tuning in, for endings and fresh beginnings, for picking things up again, for turning in new directions, for resurrecting what never got finished but that meant the world to you.
Supportive crystals this week?
Blue Quartz calms our fears and helps us to trust ourselves and our dreams. Green Chrysoprase opens our heart and helps with emotional healing and self-acceptance. Black Tourmaline is great if you have boundary issues. 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 again 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
