“The real treasure of life, the one difficult to find and hard to attain, is never far from us. That’s an unwritten rule on this earth. What we desperately desire and need most is buried in the recesses of our innermost being all along. This is the open secret found in many traditions and told in many ways. Yet it remains a secret because trusting in oneself remains one of the hardest things to do in life.”Michael Meade
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 INNER TRUTHS brings us this week. INNER TRUTHS is from the Nature’s Whispers Oracle Cards by Angela Hartfield and Josephine Wall.
The Gifts Of The Week Ahead
Have you ever wanted something but were afraid to try, afraid to fail, or someone talked you out of it?
There are some big messages in this INNER TRUTHS card around trusting ourselves and walking our own path, even if it is not as well defined as the paths that others would have us walk.
Our sense of curiosity is always fuelled by the lamp of our own innermost desires and needs.
This is a week for reconnecting with those desires and needs, those ambitions and dreams and possibilities.
Why do we need to reclaim them? Why do we need to reconnect?
Because at some stage in the past we were told that we couldn’t have the dream. Or we couldn’t do the thing that gave us joy.
Or that it was better to make someone else happy ahead of ourselves.
Maybe it was us telling ourself no. Or perhaps it was a parent, a partner, an overbearing sibling, a disenchanted teacher, a jealous friend, a well-meaning but misguided mentor.
We internalised a message of low self-worth. We weren’t young enough, clever enough, pretty enough, talented enough, good enough, worthy enough. We were too dramatic, too ambitious, too deluded, too much of a dreamer. We didn’t have the money, the time, the support. Our dream or idea was crazy, dumb, not that good, done already. We needed to grow up. To act our age. To stop being embarrassing. Or selfish. Quite frankly, we needed to put that dream or that quiet love down and embrace reality. We were told to move on.
But our hungry hearts know what they want. A hungry heart cannot be ignored without seriously hurting ourselves through denying our very purpose.
Our hearts never stop knowing.
Despite all the negativity and well-meaning but incorrect advice that is heaped upon them, despite our own negative self-talk or the put-downs of others, our hearts hold onto their own truth.
Inside, our dreams continue to burn. Ideas flicker, waiting for a breeze to fan the flame. Our long-neglected interests and hobbies need only a ray of sunshine and a little fresh air to spring back into being.
This week those dreams and longings begin to come back into focus. A little more of ourselves is restored. Our courage grows.
When we give ourselves permission to follow our dreams and do what makes us happy all kinds of magic begins to flow in our lives.
Sure, current circumstances may mean we need to modify how we approach our dreams, but the heart always finds a way. Follow the light inside you. Trust! There is ample spiritual support and intuitive knowing around you this week. It’s time to tune in.
Supportive crystals this week
Orange Calcite connects us to inspiration and is a wonderful beginner stone for tuning in to the spiritual realms. It’s great for all forms of creativity. Amethyst helps us to tune in to all forms of spiritual guidance and also helps us to manifest and become clear about our life path. Smoky Quartz helps us let go of old hurts, old pains and old ideas/situations/dreams so we can move forward without regret, and finally any kind of Geode will be great this week for amplifying joy and abundance in our lives. A geode is a little ‘cave’ or hollow filled with smaller crystals. The one pictured is an Amethyst Geode!
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 live teaching webinars, a fantastic book club, courses, meditations, a library of videos, 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.
You can study independently, access materials as and when you need them, or join me for directed study around particular areas. It’s a place where you can dive deep and join in with everything, or just dip in and out.
Read what some of our members have been saying:
Nicole’s Cauldrons and Cupcakes blog caught my eye through a friend’s post towards the end of last year when I was feeling deeply troubled by our lack of rain. As macadamia farmers it was having a very tangible impact on our trees and our livelihood as well as the natural environment around us, then came the fires that also threatened our farm and community and the beautiful natural environment where we all live. Nicole’s guidance and reflections through these heartbreaking times was a very much needed wise feminine voice when I was surrounded by so much frantic energy in my family and the world at large.Fast forward to April 2020 and Covid times were in full swing. I’d been wanting to get the Journeymakers planner and finally did along with a crystal and deck chosen by Nicole for me. What arrived late April in the post was nothing short of miraculous. A truly beautiful parcel of love, hope and magic. The planner is inspiring, spiritful and practical. It has helped me so much to focus my poor muddled mind, commit to and act on my self care, nurtured my soul, nudged me on track with projects both big, small and in between that bring meaning and purpose to my life. It’s only been two months – it feels like more since I also joined the inner circle group. I am learning and enjoying so much, at my own pace. The private online group is really wonderful to be part of, imagine the most kind, safe, supportive and interesting group of people from all walks of life all over the world. Small acts every day or so inspired by Nicole’s work and the online community really is having an incremental positive effect on my life, my energy and my creativity in all that I do. I am so grateful for this and for the sense of companionship, which was what I was seeking. Thank you Nicole and team for all that you do in building this beautiful community. With love,Emma
“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
