“Delay is the deadliest form of denial.”
C. Northcote Parkinson
“I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.”Steve Jobs
June energies support everything to do with relationships. It’s a month for connecting or reconnecting with partners, family, friends, and community. It’s a month for healing your relationships with the people and situations around you.
Keep that in mind as we explore the gifts that the oracle card BE TRUE TO YOUR HEART brings us this week. BE TRUE TO YOUR HEART is from the Nature’s Whispers Oracle Cards by Angela Hartfield and Josephine Wall.
The Gifts Of The Week Ahead
That Steve Jobs quote – about looking yourself in the eye and asking ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ – that’s what the energies of this week are all about. It’s about your relationship to your dreams, your desires, and the kind of life you want to create for yourself.
Being True To Your Heart is about paying attention to what matters, and finding time for what matters, so that your daily life has space to hold your dreams. As our world changes, as COVID-19 shapes our days differently, this is more important than ever.
So, my lovely, what makes your heart sing?
You know, the thing that lights you up just thinking about it. The thing that brings you comfort. The thing that happily steals whole hours or longer so you look up from it and wonder where the time has gone. The thing that puts a spring in your step, a song in your heart, a twinkle in your eye.
It is different for each of us. We all have our own pleasures.
Living a dream-filled, heart-centred and satisfying life isn’t about fame or money or winning or public acknowledgement. It’s about emotional contentment, soul satisfaction and living life in ways that we find nourishing and supportive.
One of my clients loves to sing. In fact she has become world-famous as a singer. But here’s the thing: she hasn’t been able to sing since the global pandemic saw all her concerts cancelled. Still, music is in her heart and she tells me that since she has stopped performing and been in lock-down, she has had to find new ways to connect with her love – so she began playing all the music she’d listened to when she was still an aspiring singer; all the music her parents had played as she grew up, the music from her church, and the music that was on the radio when she was in high school. Suddenly she’s experiencing a huge outpouring of creativity as she writes songs for a new album. (She also wanted me to tell you that this happened after she caught up on sleep and after spending the first three months of isolation feeling depressed, watching Netflix and eating way too many carbs.)
Maybe you’ll need to adapt your interest or dream to fit your current circumstances. Do that! Don’t keep putting your dreams off. We were given those dreams for a reason.
Souls can be made lighter by making music, by crafting or writing or reading or baking or beading. Surfing or hiking could be your thing. Activism and making the world a better place might be your passion. Drinking tea with friends, a latte and a magazine on your own, arthouse movies, cuddles, doona days, restoring furniture, growing things, family, your beloved – all of these can fill your heart. Maybe you can’t travel right now, but you can read about the places you’d like to visit one day, or watch movies set in those locations. Humans are creative – we can always find a way to bring our dreams to life.
Life is precious, and so is your journey. No matter what you need to do to exist and survive and to get through each day, make sure that there is also time for the things that light you up and that nourish and feed your spirit. That’s where the magic is. That’s where the happy-making, health-making, satisfaction-making part of our journey happens. In these small and ordinary details. In the time we take for ourselves and our souls.
What’s your magic? What makes your soul sing? Plan on doing some of that really soon. Your well-being and joy depend upon it!
Supportive crystals this week
Clear Quartz amplifies your intuition and your ability to tune in to Universal and Personal Wisdom. Amazonite (pictured) helps you to live from your heart and to tune into your innermost desires. Unakite opens your heart to love, and draws love, friendship and helpful people to you. It helps you to overcome feelings of isolation or loneliness. Green Aventurine supports you to be more playful, joyful and optimistic about life.
Helpful Essential Oils
I’m loving Geranium this week. This sweet uplifting oil helps us to open our hearts, to find our enthusiasm and optimism and promotes peace and emotional well-being. Use it as a perfume or diffuse it. Add few drops added to your bath make for magical self-care.
Need a blend to ramp up self-love, creative flow and spiritual connection?
Each of these oils work well with Geranium:
Lavender keeps us in flow and relaxed, Orange is uplifting, busts stress and helps us overcome self-doubt, Lemon is refreshing and supportive – it helps us overcome cynicism and move to a place of optimism and trust in the Universe and Jasmine opens us to intuition and spiritual guidance. To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser.
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

You’ll find a ready group of friends and a world of support inside our doors.
This week I’m busy resting, and getting over my latest bout of ill-health. I’ll be hosting Book Club in my pajamas today, for my membership group (I love this Book Club so much, and we are reading Glennon Doyle’s Untamed right now, so I’m expecting lots of fabulous discussion). I’m progressing well – all this rest has done me a power of good – and I expect to be back at my desk again next Monday, ready to resume normal duties!
Meanwhile, as I lie in bed I’m thinking about stories and courses, and allowing space for ideas and plot twists to come to me. The note book beside my bed is filling up with scribbles!
How about you?
Wishing you a heart-centred week of self-care and creative acts, Nicole xx
