“ Necessity may be the mother of invention, but ingenuity is the bombshell of success” ~ Phillip Gary Smith
March is a month of creativity and inspiration that will propel us forward in new directions and where we can make major progress towards existing goals. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card Ingenuity brings us.
This week Ingenuity encourages us to look at our current
Is the house a mess? Can’t get a project finished? Given up on New Year’s resolutions already? Can’t move past the weight-loss plateau? Want to go back to work but want to be a stay-at-home mum too? Got a credit card debt you can’t seem to get on top of? Just can’t submit that finished manuscript?
Ingenuity reminds us that we are the Captain of our own ship and that one of humanity’s greatest strengths is to problem-solve.
Of course, we’re usually much better when the problem is someone else’s!
Now you have your list of areas where you are stuck, choose one.
Ingenuity also reminds us that we can’t keep using the same old thinking and patterns or action (or inaction) to create a different result. ‘Duh!’, I hear you say. But aren’t you currently stuck on something? Let Ingenuity help you find some solutions this week.
Imagine that the problem belongs to someone else. Imagine that they are waiting to read your possible solutions. They’ll be here in an hour (or ten minutes, or twenty, the timeframe is up to you as long as it doesn’t exceed 60 minutes – research shows we become ineffective after that much brainpower time has elapsed without a break) to collect your answers, so you can’t spend too much time on this.
Let yourself move from an emotionally connected space to a place of greater objectivity. How would you advise someone else to approach this problem? What solutions or actions might work for this situation? Brainstorm as many as you can.
Need extra help? Phone a friend. Google for solutions. Be innovative. Write down all the possible solutions or next steps you can identity within your time frame and then pick the best three, and number them 1 to 3.
Choose a solution or action step and get started.
As simple as that?
As simple as that!
Ingenuity is a human characteristic inbuilt in all of us, and it diminishes in direct relation to how long we procrastinate about something. Actively looking for solutions and
Supportive crystals this week?

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, Cardamom enhances concentration and creativity, Lavender supports you emotionally and gifts calm and a sense of relaxation and safety, and Wild Orange for joy, gratitude and optimism. To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser, rub on soles of feet or simply drop some into your palms, rub together and inhale
I’m passionate about essential oils and their capacity to support our wellness journey and our spiritual and emotional wellbeing. If you’d like to know more or want to source the oils I recommend and trust visit this site or contact me at email@example.com
Want to make the most of your year in 2019?
I have limited hard copies of my beautiful YOM 2019 Planner left. And plenty of copies of the digital version. If you purchase one, or one of the Planner packs (that also have new year direction readings, meditation malas or crystals with them) I’ll gift you a month’s free access to my community and membership site (and a chance to win a year’s free membership!) so you can experience my work, and be well supported in the year ahead. Membership to my online group, courses and YOM community – by subscription or a yearly fee – is also available
Guided Meditation Bundle
I’ve bundled together four powerful guided downloadable meditations and created a companion workbook to support you in your spiritual journey. The Stardust Connection Meditation Bundle will help you to connect with and explore Earth Energies, Ancestor Energies, your Solar Plexus energies and personal power, and the Stardust Energies. There is over an hour’s worth of Guided Meditations and a 38-page workbook. The workbook holds specific instructions for using the four guided meditations, as well as journalling activities and reflection/awareness exercises.
The material in the Stardust Connection Meditation Bundle can be used at any time over the next four years, and beyond. My intention with this bundle is to help you become confident in your direction, your intuition, and your contribution to the unfolding history of the world and humanity. To access the bundle or to learn more about it go to my store or click on this link.
Craft A Visionary Talisman
This online course will help you to select a guiding card for the year ahead, or for a specific project, and then create and activate a Visionary Talisman to anchor helpful energies and qualities to guide and support you in your daily life. It’s practical shamanism, and you’ll learn a range of skills to support you on your spiritual journey. (Of course, if you’re a member of the YOM community you have access to this course for free!) For more information click here or go to my store.
Wishing you a transformative and uplifting week of action. Aim high, give it your best shot, and no matter what you do, be true
Lots of love, Nicole ❤ xx
PS: Monday’s oracle card, ‘Ingenuity‘ , is from the Peace Oracle. 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.
