Hold fast to dreams,
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird,
That cannot fly.Langston Hughes
October is a month for developing clear future vision and for believing in yourself and your dreams. You’ll be able to build on what you have already decided or created for yourself this year, aided by a deep knowing and intuition. Signs and messages are all around you, so trust your intuition! Keep October’s energy in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card LIGHTNING brings us.
The Week Ahead
Have you been feeling frazzled, pushed, or overwhelmed lately? Chances are that much of that feeling is coming from the fact that YOU ARE PUTTING EVERYONE ELSE’S DREAMS AND NEEDS BEFORE YOUR OWN.
As we are approaching 2020, and this brand new energetic era, those of you who have soul contracts that are about being of service by being your authentic self will be being given more than a gentle nudge from the Universe. Especially if you AREN’T doing what you came here to do, and being who you came here to be.
LIGHTNING reminds us that we have a higher purpose than simply living day to day, working to pay the bills. We came here to experience the fullness of life. We came here to express ourselves, and to learn and grow. We came here to develop our talents and share our gifts.
This week, your Higher Self has a direct line to your conscious mind. Your Higher Self, the wise and eternal part of you, knows and remembers what it is you came here to do, and just like Lightning, it is going to zap some awareness into you.
Zap. Zap. Zap.
Expect sudden clarity about your Calling, or your next project.
Expect a sudden need to eat better, to exercise, to go to the doctor or dentist and get that issue diagnosed and resolved.
Expect sudden flashes of insight that help you to better understand your personal or work relationships, and what to do about them.
Expect to see where you are wasting your time and energy.
Expect flashbacks to happier, healthier versions of you, and to feel that version of you back in your body again, ready to guide this current version of you into a better and more aligned future.
Expect your psychic and intuitive senses and your energetic sensitivity to be accute and accurate this week.
Zap. Zap. Zap.
Wherever you are, the LIGHTNING of your Higher Self is going to find you. Expect synchronicities, messages, answers and insights everywhere.
Supportive crystals this week?
Labradorite is a stone for deepening mystical connection, intuition and soul wisdom. It brings understanding and helps you to think deeply, boosting intellectual capacity. Chrysocolla helps you to release negative energy and old patterns, bringing love, light and healing into your world. It is a gently positive and reassuring stone that promotes self care. Amethyst helps you to tune in to all forms of spiritual guidance and to make wise decisions. Sunstone (pictured) helps you to sit in a place of abundance thinking so that you see the blessings and possibilities in your life. In Sweden and Norway, in the old ways, it was often referred to as the Fire and Ice stone, as was considered to bring both passion and logic to a person.
Helpful Essential Oils
Oils that gift us a calm and receptive mind and dialed-in sensitivity are what’s needed this week.
Sokli and I have a new essential oil recipe for you called ‘Crown Chakra Activator’. This recipe works with your Crown Chakra and Solar Plexus Chakra, helping you to be open to insights and Divine Guidance around your life path and sense of self, and anchoring that truth in the Original Eight Cells that sit just behind your belly button. (This is the stuff I teach on my advanced retreats, and that I’ll be teaching in my new Journeymaker Academy, but that’s a whole other post!) Use the recipe to create a heavenly diffuser scent OR use any of the individual oils on their own or in combination.
Crown Chakra Activator
- 2 drops Patchouli
- 2 drops Frankincense
- 1 drop Geranium
- 2 drops Lemon
- 2 drops Rosemary
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
The month of October gifts you focus, and helps you to begin that important process of consciously manifesting a more satisfying and meaningful life for yourself. Trust your Higher Self and Universal wisdom to show up strongly this week help to position you where you need to be for 2020.
Stay tuned this week as I share more tips here on the blog about how to honour and connect with your Higher Self with intention and mindfulness.
If you’d like to dive deeper into clearing up that energetic connection and tapping into the best parts of yourself, my new online Rituals Course will help with that too.
My intention for you is that, in using these rituals, you will learn to come home to yourself, to know yourself better, and to evolve into a wiser, more secure, more intuitive, and happier version of yourself.
