“We can’t be afraid of change. You may feel very secure in the pond that you are in, but if you never venture out of it, you will never know that there is such a thing as an ocean, a sea. Holding onto something that is good for you now, may be the very reason why you don’t have something better.“
~ C. JoyBell C.
June brings energies of growth and transformation. This month you can build on existing situations, foundations and opportunities, further transforming your life through work and self-belief. You’ll start to see results, and your progress will become visible to others too. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card Exploration brings us.
Exploration is about future vision – that vision you can create for yourself of the life you want to have, the life that inspires or nurtures or fulfills you better than the life you are living right now. It’s about the spirit of possibility and of experiencing life rather than simply existing, of growing and realising more of your potential, of changing in ways that engage, please and satisfy you.
This week put aside your sense of practicality, your self-doubt, and that part of you that shuts down ideas and new directions before you’ve even begun. Let yourself dream a bit. Got dreams already that you’ve put in a box and forgotten or that you’ve ignored? Exploration urges you not to give up on them just yet!
Transformation often starts by seeing possibilities for yourself in whatever area of your life you’d like to change. Possibilities are fueled by research. How can you know what you want and follow that path if you don’t know what’s available? This week is a great week to find out more about the things that have been engaging your curiosity or that have popped into your awareness unbidden.
Exploration is also saying: ‘Do I need a guide? Do I need someone to guide me in whatever area of my life I’m looking for that growth and change?’
Sometimes the thing that grows us is finding a guide, a coach, a mentor. You might need a course, or to join a group of like-minded people who are focused on the same interest as you.
And for a few of you? The Universe has a clear message. YOU ARE THE GUIDE. What are you waiting for? There is someone out there who needs your help, your wisdom, your message. It’s time.
(No idea how to do that or feel like you need some guidance with that yourself? Contact my PA Trish at firstname.lastname@example.org and put your name down for advance notification on my course and retreat Platform in November 2019 – which is all about helping you craft your book, message and course to put out into the world.)
Supportive crystals this week?
Map Jasper helps you to concentrate, analyse and understand. It supports the adrenals and counteracts overthinking and intellectual exhaustion. (Can’t find Map Jasper? Use a combination of your favourite Jasper with Black Tourmaline.) Peach Moonstone encourages self-care, soothes worry, raises vibration and stimulates your capacity to problem solve using both intuition and reason. Clear Quartz (pictured) amplifies intuition and your ability to tune in to Universal and Personal Wisdom. It’s a great stone to enable you to understand at a soul level what you really need. Amazonite helps you to live bravely and from your heart, especially in regard to decisions and direction. It will boost self-confidence and self-worth.
Helpful essential oils?
Combine Frankincense, Lemon and Douglas Fir Essential Oils for an energising and focusing diffuser blend this week. A ratio of 2 drops of Frankincense and 3 drops each of Lemon and Douglas Fir is delicious!
Frankincense helps you to be grounded and connected at the same time, and reduces stress and inflammation within the body. Lemon is uplifting and helps bring focus and clarity, and Douglas Fir (pictured below) helps your mind to move past limitations and to connect into possibility and good decisions and it has the added bonus of smelling like Christmas Trees – all woody freshness with some citrus undertones.
Need an oil to enhance your creativity, and to help you move out of overwhelm or anxiety? Use Neroli by diluting and applying to your pulse points as a perfume or add it to your diffuser alone or with a couple of drops of the oils mentioned above.
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
This is your one precious life (with this particular set of people, circumstances and dates anyway) – and only you can live it. Be open to the energies of Exploration this week. If you’re not satisfied with your life the way it is, trust that this week you can be shown glimpses of how it could be. Transformation is in the air, and I have so much faith in you! I’m cheering you on.
Lots of love, Nicole ❤ xx
PS: Monday’s oracle card, ‘Exploration‘ , is from the Sacred Power Reading Cards by Anna Stark . 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.
