“If you’re always racing to the next moment, what happens to the one you’re in? Slow down and enjoy the moment you’re in and live your life to the fullest.”
~ Nanette Mathews
August brings us a delicious basket of delights. It’s a month for creativity in all forms and for getting back into the flow of life again. You’ll find a lift in your mood and a clear road ahead so get ready to make the most of the opportunities all around you. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card Child of Crystals brings us.
Child of Crystals speaks to us of the need to slow down, to have quiet time, and to think deeply on what matters to us. It reminds us that life’s simple pleasures are often the best, and that friendship is one of life’s greatest gifts. Where can you slow down this week? What can you do to take time for yourself, or with friends or family, far from your stresses and responsibilities?
Child of Crystals also shows us that we have the capacity to solve our own problems and to create plans that will allow us to manifest a brighter future. Sometimes this change will come about bit by bit rather than all at once and that’s okay. Not everything in life has to be dramatic. Slow and steady can work well for us too. This week create space for pleasure. Simplify things. Reconnect with nature, yourself and your loved ones. This will get you back into a space of flow so much faster than continuing to push and stress in order to get ahead.
Supportive crystals this week?
Ruby Zoisite is a stone of transformation, helping you to be empowered in your life. It elevates your confidence and authority, and improves fertility, imagination and innovation. Carnelian dispels doubt and negativity, strengthening self-esteem, confidence and creativity. Green Aventurine taps you into the calming wisdom and soul-nurturing space of nature and helps you remember what makes you happy and brings you joy. Moss Agate (pictured) supports clear boundaries, health and well-being and reduction in stressful thoughts, and helps you navigate shift and change.
Helpful essential oils?
Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own for you this week, but they also make a delicious combination for diffusing. Frankincense elevates your mood and promotes spiritual connection and intuition, Basil enhances focus and mental clarity, Lavender supports you emotionally and gifts calm and a sense of relaxation and safety, and Orange for joy, gratitude and optimism. To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser.
Need an extra boost of encouragement? Try Young Living’s Believe essential oil blend. It’s fabulous in your diffuser while you work, or as a quick pick-me-up with a three-minute meditation. Believe is uplifting and promotes confidence, spiritual connection, clarity and self-belief.
You can find the oils here.
Holding you, as always, in my thoughts, prayers and meditations, and intending for you a life of abundance and joy, where you are no longer limited by your doubts.
All my love,

PS: Monday’s oracle card, ‘Child of Crystals’, is from the Inner Child Cards – A Fairy-Tale Tarot. I use any cards shown as a prompt for channelled messages and my own own intuitive wisdom, so my take is sometimes quite different to the meaning found in a book.
