The VoiceShel Silverstein
There is a voice inside of you
That whispers all day long,
“I feel this is right for me,
I know that this is wrong.”
No teacher, preacher, parent, friend
Or wise man can decide
What’s right for you — just listen to
The voice that speaks inside.
September’s energies are gentle and creative, and they will allow you to come to a place of kindness, compassion, and peace within yourself. This month is wonderful for any form of forgiveness work or emotional healing. Your intuition will be on point, and you’ll need space for both social connection and quiet rejuvenation. Keep September’s energy in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card Medicine Mother brings us.
This week Medicine Mother encourages you to tune in to the wisdom that is already inside you.
Medicine Mother promises you insights, breakthroughs and self-empowerment this week.
Her message to you is this: You know YOU better than anyone else.
So often we give our power away. Medicine Mother asks you to become aware of when you do that, and to stop! Your intuition is peaking this week, and it’s time to listen to your own wisdom.
How do we give our power away?
We ask the opinion of others when they hardly know us, or our particular circumstances. They give us bad advice. Later, we realise that we should have followed our own insights.
We stop listening to what our body is telling us when we aren’t getting results, or when our body doesn’t like what we are doing to it, because the doctor/naturopath/ dietitian/healer/expert says that the thing they recommended for us should be working, and we are just not trying hard enough or following their program properly.
We meet someone, and there is something we just can’t put our finger on. Our gut instinct is telling us to back away. We feel unsure or uncomfortable. The warning bells go off. If it’s a mild response, this is where our brain often kicks in and invalidates our emotion (that can happen in ‘forward’ situations too!) by persuading our logical mind with rational thoughts and justifications. In a strong response we may feel anxious or ill, we want to move back from this job/person/situation, we want to get to safety or a neutral space. We can’t say why but we KNOW this won’t work well, this person can’t be trusted, something is wrong, it’s going to end badly… Medicine Mother urges you to trust this gut instinct this week – because it won’t steer you wrong.
Supportive crystals this week?
Hessonite Garnet (the red/pink one) enhances prosperity and creativity, and promotes self-expression and self-confidence. Gold Sheen Obsidian helps you to tap into your personal power and is detoxifying for the body and spirit. It also boosts intuition, and is very calming and grounding to hold or wear. Clear Quartz 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. Iolite (pictured) helps you to ramp up your trust in your intuition and to see your best way forward.
Helpful essential oils?
I’m loving Frankincense and Clary Sage this week. Use Frankincense for intuition, focus, inspiration and breakthroughs. Dab a drop on your Crown Chakra and the soles of your feet, inhale directly or add to your diffuser. Use Clary Sage (if you’re pregnant please swap out Clary Sage for Lavender) to open you up to your intuition and to help you make empowered decisions. It’s great to inhale directly, diffuse or add a drop to Heart Chakra, throat and inner wrists like perfume. A few drops added to your bath make for magical self-care.
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
Let Medicine Mother’s energies support you to find your intuitive strength and wisdom this week, and to begin to trust yourself.
I’m holding you in my prayers and meditations.
Lots of love, Nicole xx
PS: Monday’s oracle card, ‘Medicine Mother’, is from the Angels and Ancestors Oracle Cards by Kyle Gray. I use any cards shown as a prompt for channelled messages and my own intuitive wisdom, so my take is sometimes quite different from the meaning found in a book.
