“If you limit your choices only to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you truly want, and all that is left is compromise. The way to activate the seeds of your creation is by making choices about the results you want to create.”~ Robert Fritz
January is a month for moving past limitations, for reinventing yourself, and for planning, possibilities and creating a sense of purpose. Keep that in mind as we explore the gifts that the oracle card CORE brings us this week. CORE is from the Sacred Earth Oracle by Toni Carmine Salerno & Leela J Williams.
Put your hands on your heart. Put your hands on your belly. Breathe. Allow yourself time to feel into and connect to your core energy. Take a moment. Ask yourself ‘Who am I? What matters to me?’ This is the beginning of the relationship CORE invites you to create with yourself.
Self-awareness is what is required from us this week. We need to tune in. We need to listen to our bodies, listen to our hearts, listen to our soul’s own wisdom.
Tune in to how much energy you have. Tune in to what the diet you eat is doing to your body. Tune in to how easily your body can move, can sleep, can do the things you need it to do.
Tune in to where your passion lies, and where it does not.
Tune in to your rage, your discontent, your excitement, your pain, your joy, your indifference.
Be open to where that leads you. Don’t judge it. Stay curious. Stay open.
Know that tuning in will lead you back to yourself, no matter how lost you may have become.
Supportive crystals for the week ahead
Herkimer Diamonds amplify your intuition and are great for healing, and for overcoming obstacles and limited thinking. Rutilated Quartz is great for helping you to see the best of yourself and your potential, and giving you self-confidence. Bismuth (pictured) can be lab-created or natural. Both are good. It will have metallic and pastel or rainbow coloured hues, and a mathematical and geometric feel. It is a stone for transformation, for creating the architecture of your ideal life, and supports you to overcome fear, self-loathing, social and emotional isolation, and to move back into communication, connection and flow.
Essential Oil Support
Geranium, Wild Orange, Sandalwood, and Lavender work beautifully on their own or in combination this week to help you move through doubt and back to a place of confidence and positivity.
As a blend for your diffuser add two drops of each oil. A drop of each oil in the bath is heavenly too. It’s a great blend to get you out of your head and into your heartspace. It promotes spiritual connection and intuition and is deeply calming. I love this oil combination, and it’s my oil of choice in my diffuser this week.
Freaking out or find yourself absolutely stuck in inertia? Rub a drop or two of Sandalwood over your heart and on the back of your neck to help reconnect Solar Plexus, Heart, and Crown Chakra, bringing you gently into alignment with your personal truth.

All my love, Nicole xx
