“Instead of forcing yourself to feel positive, allow yourself to be present in the now.”Daniel Mangena
March is a month for creating space in your life, for breaking patterns and creating new ones, for inspired thinking and new directions. It’s also a month where extreme self-care and deep rest may be needed.
Keep that in mind as we explore the gifts that the oracle card CENTRE brings us this week. CENTRE is from the Sacred Earth Oracle by Toni Carmine Salerno & Leela J Williams.
It’s easy to move into a place of fear or panic, or to get stuck in our heads, when we are not centred in our body and connected into our hearts.
This week CENTRE brings a comforting message. We may not be able to control everything in our lives, but we don’t need to. All we need to do is stay centred in ourselves, and centred in the moment. When we stop fighting and surrender to the truth of our situation peace comes and we find that we can cope after all, just by staying in the moment.
CENTRE reminds you to check your breathing. Are you holding your breath? Are you breathing deeply and fully, so that oxygen fills your lungs and your body relaxes and calms? Try it now – a couple of deep, cleansing breaths, and allow all of the tension to fall from your body.
CENTRE reminds you to live from that place of love and goodness within you, flowing love and compassion to yourself and those around you. How can you live more mindfully this week? How can you take better care of yourself? How can you support those around you with love and care, in ways that do not debilitate or overextend you?
Being CENTREd is also about being grounded. When we are centred and grounded we remove the stress response in our bodies, reducing inflammation and strengthening our immune systems. Here are some tips and a guided meditation to help you do that more effectively this week.
Finally, CENTRE is also about standing your ground, standing up for yourself, setting clear boundaries and looking after yourself and your mental health and overall wellbeing, without needing to validate, justify or explain. It’s about standing in your power and owning your ability to be resilient, wise and strong.
Supportive crystals for the week ahead
Peach Aventurine (pictured) will help you to have confidence in seeking out new opportunities or putting ideas into action. Citrine’s energy allows us to calm our minds and to bring our focus to what matters. It supports problem-solving, learning, deep thinking and decision-making. Rhyolite is a fantastic stone for times of change, helping to boost your self-belief and self-esteem, and anchoring energies of positive transformation. It will help you stay calm during turbulent life challenges, and will help you to focus on your goals.
Helpful Essential Oils
Geranium, Wild Orange, Sandalwood, and Lavender work beautifully on their own or in combination this week to help you to tap into awareness, clarity, connection and inner strength, and to overcome anxiety and fear this week.
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 optimism and trust in yourself and the Universe.
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.
Want to hang out with a like-minded group of caring and empathic souls, and use your down-time to ramp up your spiritual connection?
Coronavirus is a game-changer for all of us, forcing us to slow down, to stay home and drop back from the busy-ness of our everyday lives. Instead of panicking, I invite you to embrace this challenge as an opportunity to find the time and the stillness needed for deep soul work and a personal journey of transformation.
2020 is a big year for healing and reinventing ourselves, and for tapping into our intuitive gifts. My membership group can help you to make the most of these energies. Within our membership space you’ll find guided meditations, videos and online courses, a bookclub, a private Facebook group and many other resources.
Right now I’m creating some new material for my Journeymaker Circle Membership students to tap into these big soul work energies, including new meditations and coursework for connecting with Ancestral and Elder energies and for family healing work.
This is the kind of deep work I would normally only offer during my retreats and residential teaching intensives but this year I am doing that work only through my private membership group, which means you can take advantage of this teaching now matter where in the world you live.
For the next short while I am offering 12 months membership to the Journeymaker Circle for just $457 USD for an entire year. If you join now I’ll honour that price forever, as long as you remain a current member. That’s our special introductory offer, and we have limited places remaining at that rate. And my Membership will never be available at this price again.
So, if you’d like to join us, or you’d like more information visit this link for all the details:
I look forward to mentoring you, advancing your abilities and talents, and sitting in a place of friendship and connection with you as we journey this path together.
And now, here’s some snaps of Daisy Mae with her brand new calf – a little girl we have named Mony-Pony. She’s a lovely wee thing. Mum and bub are both doing well.
Much love, Nicole xx
