You may not feel outstandingly robust, but if you are an average-sized adult you will contain within your modest frame no less than 7 X 10^18 joules of potential energy—enough to explode with the force of thirty very large hydrogen bombs, assuming you knew how to liberate it and really wished to make a point.Bill Bryson
August energies are all about relationships and wellbeing. It’s a month to focus on health goals, creativity, the people and activities we care about most, and creating healthy practices in our lives
Keep that in mind as we explore the gifts that the oracle card MEDITATION brings us this week. MEDITATION is from Chakra Reading Cards: Ancient Wisdom to Balance and Heal by Rachelle Charman.
The Gifts Of The Week Ahead
If August is all about relationships, this week is all about working out what those relationships do to your body, mind and spirit.
With everything that you do, tune in for a moment and ask yourself, ‘Does this empower/energise me? Does this drain me? Is it neutral in its effect on me?’
Do this with the food you are eating. Think about it when you choose food, think about it while you eat it and then notice the effects on your body afterwards. Is this food you need to include more or, or food to minimise or eliminate from your diet?
Do this with your body. Are you moving enough? Sitting down too much? Not getting enough rest? What does your body need? Are you pushing against your inner knowing?
Do this with the personal relationships in your life. Do these people lift you up, support you and empower you? Do they drain you or make you feel smaller or less than somehow? Or are they neutral – not positive but not negative either?
Do this with your work relationships, and with the projects you are invested in doing right now.
Do this with your thoughts and your self talk.
Do this with your choices of music, art, leisure activities, healing activities.
As you become more mindful you’ll soon see what energises you, and what drains your battery. Use this knowledge to make better choices in your life.
So, tune in today. What’s your body telling you? Listen to it, and then act on it. Let it be the start of a beautiful time of healing, reconnection and empowerment for you now.
Supportive crystals this week
Clear Quartz amplifies intuition and your ability to tune in to Universal and Personal Wisdom. It’s a great stone to enable you to understand at a soul level what you really need. Use it to get clear about what matters in your life! Ruby Zoisite is a stone of transformation, helping you to be empowered in your life. It elevates your confidence and authority, and enhances creativity, imagination and innovation. Carnelian (pictured) dispels doubt and negativity, strengthening self-esteem, determination, confidence and creativity. 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.
Helpful Essential Oils
Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own for you this week, but they also make a delicious combination for diffusing. The essential oils you will find helpful now are Orange, Lavender, Frankincense, and Jasmine. Orange creates a relaxing space for emotional and spiritual connection, Lavender keeps us in flow and relaxed, Frankincense is uplifting and supportive – and will help you focus on your Inner Truth, and Jasmine gifts us joy, optimism and self-confidence. To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser.
Keep working to tune in to what you need. Trust your inner knowing and give yourself permission to choose what uplifts and supports you, over what drains and deflates you.
Not sure what to choose, or stuck in a rut and need some direction? My team and I have opened up the rest of this year for personal readings. If you’d like to make an appointment please contact Simone at email@example.com
You deserve a life that is meaningful and satisfying, and where your relationships are supportive, respectful and fulfilling. Life’s too short to settle for second best.
Holding you in my thoughts, prayers and meditations, Nicole xx
