“I don’t know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve.”Albert Schweitzer
May is a month for speaking your truth, for standing up for what matters, for action, and for emotional healing.
Keep that in mind as we explore the gifts that the oracle card BE IN SERVICE brings us this week. BE IN SERVICE is from the Nature’s Whispers Oracle Cards by Angela Hartfield and Josephine Wall.
The Gifts Of The Week Ahead
This week’s energies support all forms of service and all acts of kindness.
Start by being in service to yourself. How can you look after yourself better? What dreams of yours need time and attention? Don’t just think about these things – take action!
Give some thought to the small ways you can be of service to your partner, your family and your friends. Think about your environment and community – how can you be thoughtful, how can you help out?
Perhaps you are called to a cause. So much of the grassroots change we need in the world happens because people like you decided to do something. Be one of those people, or join others already in service to causes you care about.
Service isn’t grand acts witnessed and praised by many. Service is the person who stops to put trash in the bin, the woman who fills a birdbath or feeder for the local wildlife, the man who rings his grandmother and takes her groceries or helps her around the house. It’s the friend who drops a meal to another tired mum, the next-door-neighbour who brings in your washing when it starts to rain, your co-worker who offers to work late so you can pick up your sick child from daycare. It’s the person who rings to see how a friend is when they haven’t been doing well, or the person who volunteers at the local animal shelter.
Service is also the act of caring about your dreams enough to sit down at your desk and draw or write. It’s the act of sending your song out into the world, or your book or your photographs or your recipe or your course. It’s spending time in devotion to the whispers of your heart.
These simple acts of service help our world to be a better place for all of us.
Service is not about helping others from a place of duty or obligation. When we are kind and thoughtful with others we create opportunities for healing, growth and positive change within others and also in ourselves.
Service encourages us to live from love. To be kind rather than needing to be right. To forgive. To help. To share. To encourage. To support. To see. To hear.
This is an energy we can flow outward from ourselves to others.
But it is also an energy we can flow inwards to ourselves.
Go back and read that last sentence again.
In fact, it’s so important that I’ll repeat it: Service is also an energy we can flow inwards towards ourselves.
We can be kind with ourselves rather than judgemental. We can forgive ourselves. We can help ourselves. We can give to ourselves. We can encourage ourselves. We can support ourselves. We can truly see and hear ourselves. That’s a powerful gift, and a powerful place from which to create true growth and change.
This is a week for selfless giving, for creating better stories for ourselves and for asking for help – especially from our Ancestors and ‘upstairs’ crew (God, Guides, Angels and so on).
So much can come from an act of kindness or encouragement. Why not try it and see for yourself!
Supportive crystals this week
Rhodonite (pictured) will help you to give and receive love and to feel more worthy of accepting good into your life. Green Chrysoprase opens your heart and helps with emotional healing and self acceptance. Amazonite gifts you the courage to speak the truth and to act from truth. Turquoise encourages empathy, compassion and kindness.
Helpful Essential Oils
Combine Lime and Cypress Essential Oils for an uplifting and focusing diffuser blend this week.
Lime helps clear away stale energy, Use it to clear away any disappointments, hurts or negative emotions that are holding you back from being kind to yourself and accepting of yourself. It brings a sense of optimism and renewal for body, mind and spirit.
Cypress is really like taking an energetic broom to the cobwebs in the corners of your life. It gifts focus and clarity, and is a beautiful oil for enhancing calm concentration. It supports being able to plan your life without being limited by self-sabotage or negative thinking.
Want To Learn To Use Your Intuition?
Come join our members in the Journeymaker Inner Circle and have access to webinars, courses, meditations, activities and community all year!
This is a group that is perfect for beginners and the metaphysically curious, but it is also robust enough to serve more advanced practitioners too.
It’s a perfect time to be joining us. Right now I am running a series of members-only channelled webinars, covering the kind of teaching and information I usually only share on my advanced Retreats.
We’ve also got some wonderful members-only activities and lessons coming up, that work with the kind of Portal and Energy Healing work I did recently in Sedona. And there is so much more planned – and that’s on TOP of all of the courses, resources and activities you’ll have immediate access to within the membership.
Read what some of our members have been saying:
“I always wanted to attend one of your retreats. Now for a fraction of the price of a one week retreat I get a whole year of goodness. Feel like I am on retreat every time I watch one of your channelled webinars, or listen to a meditation, or when you guide us through a ritual or activity. I didn’t expect that you’d answer so many of our questions in the Facebook group. I certainly didn’t expect to be zooming along on my psychic journey with so much confidence or having such an incredibly mind blowing experience. Can’t thank you enough for helping me discover this part of myself, Nicole. Thank you to you and your team and a super-dooper big thankyou for the Dark Moon meditation. I never really got meditation until I did this one. It just takes me so deep, and I am having incredible results. Thanks again and lots of love to everyone xxx”Kate
” I just logged in to the academy to find the meditation Nicole mentioned yesterday and discovered there are 157 lessons!! Apart from the quick look and celebratory sister Whoohoo when Nicole first launched the new look a few months or so back, I haven’t been in there to really use the website membership (I obviously find great value in the posts and “Live”s here in the Inner Circle alone! ). Nicole and team, you’ve been very busy! Amazing job! Thanks for the doorway meditation. I’ve now downloaded it and look forward to listening to it again many times over the next few years “Fiona
I’ve been a member of several online metaphysical groups but when I found Nicole’s group a few years ago I knew I’d found my home. Nicole’s work is supportive, uplifting and empowering and I have made true and lasting real-world friendships in her community. Most importantly, I am gaining confidence and skills in using my intuitive abilities and I can see real progress, not just with my psychic work but in me as a person. I love her new Book Club and the library of webinar videos and downloadable guided meditations, and the Facebook Group is a place I check in often for the care and support it brings. I recommend the Journeymakers Circle. It is life changing in the best of ways and Nicole is a generous and caring teacher and mentor.K.
Dear Nicole, Thank you for the amazing channeling of Lunetia. I am still full of excitement with the information that was shared. I just really want you to know how grateful I am that I am here and able to participate in your series. Thank you!!!Jeanie
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.
You can also join us at a monthly subscription rate.

You’ll find a ready group of friends and a world of support inside our doors.
This week I’m down on the farm, getting my winter garden ready, and making soup because we’ve had a sudden cold snap, and you can really feel winter approaching.
My acts of service this week? I’ve blocked off writing time for myself and some long weekends for my business team for the rest of 2020. And I’ll be baking some new recipes and sharing the results with my local community.
How about you?
Gentle hugs, woodsmoke, cups of tea and shared treats, Nicole xx
