Don’t wait to start living

So have adventures. Go exploring. Drive around at midnight. Feel the wind running through your hair. Life is so short, my darling. And there’s no day like today.

Hello, Lovelies.

There is an important story I want to share with you today. Two people died yesterday. I’d like to tell you about them.

Ten years ago, during a reading, I urged a client to go have her bowel checked out. I was worried. I could see growths there. Inflammation, the wrong kind of cells. She was having problems with bloating and occasional constipation or diarrhea.

I heard from her again a few weeks ago. She had never been to the doctor. Instead she’d gone on a vegan diet. She contacted me because she thought she might have a parasitic infection. She’d lost a lot of weight and become very tired. And she was still having problems with her bowel. Her pain was suddenly unbearable. Could I help her?

I insisted she go to the hospital. I could see how advanced her condition had become. Quietly, I was horrified that things had degenerated to a point where I knew she was out of options.

Two days after we spoke she was diagnosed with terminal bowel cancer and given just days to live. Perhaps two months if everything went well. That was a fortnight ago. Just enough time for her to move home from interstate, to settle her young daughters, aged six and eight, with the grandparents they had never met, and for her to be admitted to palliative care. She took a turn for the worse, and died last night, at only forty-two years of age.

Lovelies, if ever I ask you to go get something checked out, please, humour me and go do it. It breaks my heart every time I see something become untreatable after I had brought attention to it when there was still time to change the outcome. I know, I’m just a psychic. Humour me, okay?

A single mum, my client had been stubbornly independent and working hard to get ahead. She had great plans for when she ‘made it’. She talked about how she’d spend time with her girls, and how they’d go on incredible holidays together. How they’d get a dog, and spend weekends going on picnics or to the beach. So many plans. And now she’s run out of time.

We all can be guilty of that. We put housework or business or busy-ness before health, hobbies, family, adventures, living.

Those little girls will never get that time back with their mum. Their mum will never get back that time to spend with her girls, and for her to live life rather than hustling through every day, postponing any kind of downtime or pleasure. Please, learn from that, and choose differently.

A friend of mine passed away unexpectedly yesterday too. He was the opposite of my client. Our friendship began when he became one of my own doctors, over twenty years ago. He was someone who worked hard, but he’d always found a way to make time for his family. He was actively involved in the raising of his kids, and in the life of his young grandchildren. He’d created that balance between career and living, and he had sacrificed some career advancement in order not to have to choose between work and family. He died in his sleep, at sixty-two, and after a life well lived and well loved. He made each day count, and his loved ones had the gift of having him present in their lives in meaningful ways. He died way too soon, but he leaves behind such love and so many good memories for his loved ones to remember him by.

This week your Higher Self and intuition is gently guiding you towards a more balanced and satisfying life. Please pay attention. Please be active in making choices that allow you to live life well, rather than just existing with the expectation that at some distant time in the future you will finally be able to do things that make you happy.

You matter. Your loved ones matter. Your dreams and desires matter. Make room for them in your life.

All my love, Nicole xx

  1. My little sister refuses to get mammograms or checked cuz there’s been so much cancer in our maternal line. That makes no sense. If something needs checked, do it!
    Your gifts are a joy. Im going to definitely keep a closer eye on you than I could while in Alaska! 💕💕💕

  2. Dearest Nicole,

    My heart goes out to the little gals and their beloved mother. I have got no words to express the grief I feel for their loss , the time they ll never have again together. All for the gals she toiled but….

    Lots of love and prayers

  3. My oldest brother passed away last night after a very long cancer battle – probably 15 years. In the past few years he made connections with family he had lost touch with. He called me several times during the past year to say goodbye, not knowing how long he had. He lasted longer than any of us thought he would. He made his peace with God, as well, and I am thankful for that. My heart goes out to you on the losses of your friends.

    1. Judy, you and your family are in my prayers and meditations. I am so sorry for your loss, and I am grateful that your brother was able to reconnect with loved ones and deepen that connection and find that peace before he passed. I know that will be a comfort to you too. Sending love to you, Nicole xx

  4. Well this is a wake-up call. And is not CALL the card of november? I will follow your advice as best I can. If you ever “see” something about me please tell me, I will listen.

  5. Nicole I follow you and I do take notice of your posts. You are right about the memories.
    I have recently made contact with my estranged daughter and while it is early days yet it is a massive step forward for us both. I have started sending my (alcoholic) Mother messages because if I phone her she will hang up on me. If I send her letters she doesn’t believe what I tell her. I am asking her to please Call A Truce because I do not want to argue with her any more as life is way too short. She has not replied yet but I will keep persevering.
    Please send positive thoughts to the three of us for our continuing reconciliations.
    Thank you 🤗

    1. Yes, Joanne, money IS needed, but when we look back it is never the money we think about. It is the memories. You’re spot in with your comment. Thank you xx

    1. Well hooray for that. Best news I’ve heard all day. Teachers love it when their advice is actioned. Nx
