Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.Albert Einstein
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 SOUL HEALING brings us this week. SOUL HEALING is from Chakra Reading Cards: Ancient Wisdom to Balance and Heal by Rachelle Charman.
The Gifts Of The Week Ahead
Who was it who stole your Light?
Maybe a sibling laughed at your art in childhood, and made fun of you in front of everyone. Maybe a teacher told you that you had no talent for the thing you cared about so deeply. Maybe a parent told you to rethink your career choices and select something ‘more practical’ or a ‘real job’. Did someone compare you to others and tell you
Perhaps a mentor told you you could never make money from your idea. Did your spouse tell you that there were already other people doing the thing you wanted to share with the world, so what was the point?
Or did you do it to yourself, with your self-criticism and that inner voice always in your ear telling you that you weren’t worthy, or your talent wasn’t good enough, or that your ideas were dumb and you would always be a failure?
Have you always longed to dye your hair pink, or learn the guitar, or get a tattoo – but you stopped yourself because you worried how others might judge or criticize you?
This week SOUL HEALING brings her restorative gifts to your life. You’ll find your way back to the thing you have been afraid to try, you’ll be inspired to reconnect to old passions, hobbies and ideas, or you’ll be directed towards new and better ways for you to explore your gifts so that you may fall in love with them again.
SOUL HEALING also reminds you to encourage others in their own pursuits, and to uplift them where you can.
Supportive crystals this week
Nephrite Jade (Greenstone) is a stone that supports heart-centred living and emotional expression in life and in art. Carnelian energises and grounds the physical body and aids all forms of healing and creativity. Great for overcoming exhaustion and burnout. Orange Calcite supports flow of creative ideas and for connected inspiration. Pearls are wonderful for softening and opening our hearts to our art and true direction!
Helpful Essential Oils
Sokli gave me this recipe ages ago. She calls it the Lucky Happy Magic Recipe and I find it marvellous for enhancing and supporting creativity. You’ll need Lavender 2 drops, Orange 4 drops, Ylang Ylang 4 drops, Sandalwood 3 drops.
This recipe is one of my favourite essential oil blends to put in a diffuser or as a perfume or bath oil. I make up a little bottle of the mix and then I can add it to my bath or take it with me to inhale or wear.
Always dilute in a little carrier oil before applying to skin, and remember that citrus oil should not be applied to any skin that will be in sunlight.
This week keep yourself open to possibility and make some time for creativity and inspiration – whatever that looks like for you. Holding you, as always, in my thoughts, prayers and meditations, and intending for a you a life of abundance and joy, where you are no longer limited by your doubts.
All my love, Nicole xx
