“Without leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all is a form of planning.”
~ Gloria Steinem
Take a deep breath, schedule some downtime, and welcome the energies of May. May is a month that empowers you to take the long view of your goals, and to make decisions and take actions that support those goals. We see that it is pointless to put ourselves under endless pressure. May supports sustainable action, and working towards our goals and dreams bit by bit, step by step.
Cards for the Month:
I’ve chosen two cards for May for you: one from Colette Baron-Reid’s The Enchanted Map and one from Steven Farmer’s Earth Magic Oracle. Please note I don’t use these cards in a conventional way, but rather as a stimulus for channeled information.
Here is what I have received from each card:
“Courage is the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you can’t practice any other virtue consistently.”
~ Maya Angelou
May opens us up to bigger possibilities. We begin to see how we can build our dream, and who might help us. It’s also a month where we become comfortable with taking the long view on life. No more crash diets or mad deadlines. We understand that building a better life is done one day at a time, and that some of our goals and dreams might take months or even years to come to fruition. That’s okay. It takes the pressure off and allows us to settle into sustainable routines and rhythms. Will it matter if it takes years to earn a qualification, or if our new business starts slowly? Or if it takes time to renovate, lose the weight or rehabilitate an injury. No. What matters is working towards something that we are emotionally invested in and which will move us to a more fulfilling place than where we currently find ourselves.
It’s a month that supports promotions, career and relationship advancement and bold moves in new directions. Trying new things helps to expand our world. Think travel, whether that’s just around the corner or to the other end of the globe. Think experimenting with new looks, new foods or new hobbies.
The second card I’ve chosen is Wolf.
“Once a month, for one evening, we are free to wear our natural skins. We are on the outside as we are internally.”
It’s a fabulous month for revitalising our bodies and improving our diet. Get moving again with stretches, yoga, hiking in nature or dance.
May encourages leadership, and supports us with strong gut instinct and intuition for making the best decisions for ourselves, our families, our businesses and our futures.
Best crystals this month?
Amethyst and Orange Calcite
Amethyst helps us to tune in to all forms of spiritual guidance and to make a sound, wise decisions.
Orange Calcite connects us into inspiration and creativity, helping us to express ourselves and live from our innermost nature, our talents and abilities.
Essential oils to support your journey?
Young Living’s Believe blend is my choice for May. Containing Ylang-Ylang, Idaho Blasalm Fir, Frankincense, Geranium, Idaho Blue Spruce, Coriander, and Bergamot it has a fresh, uplifting aroma and I find it very grounding and centering. I love this oil for helping me get into a space of self-belief, empowerment and flow. And gee it gets the creative juices flowing! When I am planning my life, visualising my future or working on a project that is important to me Believe is my go-to oil. Usage: A drop over your heart and on your wrists as a perfume and/or on crown of head, back of neck and behind ears work well. So does diffusing the oil. It’s instantly grounding and connecting, and it brings a sense of peace, certainty and confidence.
Want to make your own blend? Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own but they’ll also make a great combination for diffusing. Bergamot is uplifting, busts stress and helps us overcome self-doubt. Frankincense elevates our mood and promotes spiritual connection and intuition, Ylang-Ylang opens our hearts and minds, and it helps us to feel deserving and open to abundance, Spruce is a deeply spiritual oil – holding the wisdom of the forest it links our lefts and right brain bringing balance, calm and centering. To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser. You can find the oils here.
Wishing you a love-filled, satisfying and wonder-full May.
Lots of love, Nicole❤ xoxo
