“You can be the most beautiful person in the world and everybody sees light and rainbows when they look at you, but if you yourself don’t know it, all of that doesn’t even matter. Every second that you spend on doubting your worth, every moment that you use to criticize yourself; is a second of your life wasted, is a moment of your life thrown away. It’s not like you have forever, so don’t waste any of your seconds, don’t throw even one of your moments away.”C. JoyBell C.
April’s here, and with it come energies of creativity, inner journeying and self-awareness. It’s a month for going within to find your answers, and for reconnection in relationships, and with things that matter to you.
Keep that in mind as we explore the gifts that the oracle card YOU ARE WORTH IT brings us this week. YOU ARE WORTH IT is from the Nature’s Whispers Oracle Cards by Angela Hartfield and Josephine Wall.
The Gifts Of The Week Ahead
The energies of this week lead you into that quiet and tender place that is your own heart.
How long have you neglected yourself?
How long have you neglected your dreams?
Do you even know who you are anymore?
Or what matters to you?
Do you know what makes you happy, or what truly gives you satisfaction in life?
Your precious life matters, and so do your dreams. Living a slower life, one that gives you time to appreciate the many blessings and wonders of this incarnation, is what you are being guided to now.
This week, do things that make you happy. Make bread. Dance to your favourite songs. Hug your loved ones. Take a nap. Set the table with candles and your best china. Wear something pretty and put on perfume just because. Tidy your home or rearrange the furniture. Pamper yourself with some self-care. Enroll in that course you’ve always wanted to do. Work in the garden. Do some craft. Sit outside one evening and watch the stars. Create a romantic date night at home. Catch up with a friend by video. Stop reading the news and start reading a good book. Nurture your soul, and give it a little love. Soak up this one precious life by stopping to smell the roses, feel the feelings and give thanks for all the good that is already here.
And if you love someone? Be with them. Listen to them and allow them to feel seen and heard. Give them the gift of your undivided attention. Share vulnerably, from your heart. Let your connection deepen. Come back together, heart to heart.
Supportive crystals for the week ahead
Clear Quartz will support you with all forms of soul work, holding intention and clear seeing. Smoky Quartz (pictured) keeps you grounded and connected, gifting inner strength and the ability to listen deeply. If you’re feeling completely lost Smoky Quartz helps you get back on your feet again. Carnelian is a super stone for sparking creativity, for finding the energy for your art, for creating passion in your life, and for living with curiosity and enthusiasm. Moonstone encourages self-care, soothes worry, raises vibration and stimulates your capacity to problem solve using both intuition and reason.
Helpful Essential Oils
Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own for you this week but they’ll also make a delicious combination for diffusing:
Frankincense for spiritual and intuitive connection and restoration of faith. Geranium for stress reduction and emotional balance, and for evoking a sense of peace and goodwill. Orange for optimism and happiness. Vetiver to ground and connect you, and to help you cope with fear and stress. To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser.

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 paid 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.
I’m spending a lot of time in our group doing exclusive Facebook lives, channelling, answering questions, providing support and customizing learning to best support our members.
I’m also creating 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 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.
If you’d like to join us, or you’d like more information visit this link for all the details:
You’ll find a ready group of friends and a world of support inside our doors.
Meanwhile, back at the farm I’m making new no-dig vegetable gardens, taking long walks down by the river with my dogs, and working on our new course content. It’s my happy place, and I’m feeling blessed to be able to support my community doing the work I love best.
Here’s a snap of my pups, Harry and Rufous (who we mostly call Rufie cos of his total cuteness) exploring the riverbank late yesterday afternoon.
Sending you love, lazy sunshine and the fragrance of freshly baked bread, Nicole xx
