“The heart has its reasons which reason knows not.”
~ Blaise Pascal
October brings our focus back to our home environment, our heart-space and our soul’s journey. We’ll feel a need to nest, to clean and beautify the spaces where we spend most of our time (this could be your body, home, work or even your car!) and to have to hand the things we need to make our time in these spaces comfortable and productive.
It will also be important that these spaces reflect who we are, and who we are becoming.
Cards for the Month:
I’ve chosen two cards for October for you: one from Colette Baron-Reid’s 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:
“When you want to hurry something, that means you no longer care about it and want to get on to other things. I just want to get at it slowly, but carefully and thoroughly, with the same attitude I remember was present just before I found that sheared pin. It was that attitude that found it, nothing else.”
~ Robert M. Pirsig
It’s a time for inviting people into our heart-spaces, and for deepening our soulful relationship and connections. This could be candlelit dinners with a romantic partner where you talk about your hopes and dreams, it could be time spent planning an important trip or a life goal, or even a backyard picnic with friends reminiscing about the good old days and reaffirming your connections and shared experiences over time.
Use a little time this month for reflection. Think about what makes you happy and what fills you up. Find ways to get more of that into your life.
The second card I’ve chosen is Gaia.
“Nourishing yourself in a way that helps you blossom in the direction you want to go is attainable, and you are worth the effort.”
No matter what we do this month it needs to be in alignment with our soul energy and truth. Too tired for connection? Then say no and have an early night all to yourself. Work doesn’t feel right? Tune in and see if it’s still for your highest good or if it’s time for a change. In every instance, no matter what you are doing, take a moment and breathe deeply to centre yourself, close your eyes and then tune in to your body – your energy levels, your emotions and your intuition. Let that be your guide this month and always as we move forward in this new era. It’s time to be more aligned with yourself, your values and your needs.
Best crystals this month?
Bronzite and Angelite
Bronzite promotes inner harmony, reduces worry and allows you to feel grounded, calm and safe.
Angelite nurtures your soul, gifting you expansive connection and deep emotional
nourishment. A stone for revelations and insights about what is good for you.
Essential oils to support your journey?
Young Living’s Joy essential oil blend, or Orange and Lavender essential oils are my picks for October.
Joy opens our hearts and tunes us in to our own inner wisdom and is uplifting, comforting and empowering. Dab a drop of Joy on your Crown Chakra, back of neck, over heart, on wrists and the soles of your feet, inhale directly or add to your diffuser.
Orange essential oil helps us to see the possibilities for ourselves and our life and is reaffirming, uplifting and happy-making! It’s also one of the best anti-depression, anti-anxiety and anti-burnout oils I know! Use Orange in your diffuser or add a few drops to your bath. To bring a sense of tranquillity, optimism and safety to your home or workplace add equal drops of Orange and Lavender essential oils to your diffuser or your bath.
You can find the oils here.
Wishing you a love-filled, satisfying and wonder-full October.
Lots of love, Nicole❤ xoxo
