Life is very short, and if you worry what people think of you, if you second-guess yourself, you’re in trouble.
~ Karren Brady
This Quarter I am using The Light Seer’s Tarot by Chris-Anne for my weekly oracle readings.
Our card to guide us for the week ahead is 2 OF SWORDS. It’s a week for trusting yourself to make good decisions, even when you are being pulled in many directions, or can’t clearly see the path ahead.
This week TWO OF SWORDS urges you not to second-guess yourself! You have an inner knowing, and that inner knowing has revealed itself to you before now, which led to you choosing a path, or making decisions.
This week, you might feel wobbly in those choices.
You may feel the need to second-guess yourself.
Or everyone else around you may tell you that you made the wrong call, or that there is something better suited to you.
Ignore it all.
You made decisions from a place of clarity. Now, the view might be obscured. But your feet still know the path. Your heart still knows the way. Slow down if you must, but keep putting one foot in front of the other because you can do this blindfolded if you have to.
For some of you, the decision’s made, and it’s a BIG ONE, but you haven’t put it into action yet. That’s okay. Don’t doubt the vision you were given of this different life you desire for yourself. Trust that you will find a way to make this vision a reality.
My Top Tip For The Week Ahead: Tune back in to what helps you feel more deeply yourself. Maybe that’s a piece of music, something you wrote, a book, or a podcast, or an activity you enjoy. Maybe it’s a person or a group that nourish you and where you feel safe, or expansive. Tune OUT all the things that put doubt into your head, including your own fears and insecurities. You made this choice, or hold this dream, for a reason. Trust!
Stuck with creating a satisfying life for yourself or understanding your best direction forward? Maybe you need a session with me to bring some extra clarity and direction. Details here

On the home front…
Oh! I just worked out how this book ends. That book I started writing during NaNoWriMo last November. It breaks my heart and lifts me up, all at the same time. Hooray for that, I think…
It has been another soggy week, here at the Treehouse. Meanwhile, the other side of the world burns. I’m spending a lot of time thinking about the fragility of our ecosystem, and what it means to be a good steward of the land. I’m thinking about the climate crisis, and global warming, and how we may limit the damage before it escalates further, or even if we can. No matter what I do, this awareness of the ticking clock of climate change sits at the back of my mind, never far from my conscious thoughts. It’s begun to permeate my business decisions and direction in bigger ways, and it already colours Ben’s and my consumer choices and small everyday actions.
I’ve also started thinking about kayaks and canoes. I used to love going for a paddle, but that was years ago. The last time I did any serious paddling was when we lived in Palau, nearly twenty years ago. I wonder if my shoulders and arms will bear up under the strain of repetitive movement, but my heart longs to be back in that watery paradise of exploring coastlines, lakes, rivers and creeks, and the Sunshine Coast offers so many wonderful locations. I guess I’ll stay open and see where this all leads me. (Nicole, don’t second-guess yourself!)
My Inner Circle and I will also be doing lots of crystal grid work and meditation this week – something that always fills my cup.
My wish for you is that you find things to fill your own cup too.
Love, splashy moments, adventures, and mugs of chai, Nicole xx

Thanks Nic! A timely reminder! And yay for (new??) book endings and paddling! I’ll never forget the canoe journey I made in Cooloola straight after a Vipassana retreat at Pomona, a hundred years ago 🙂 Enjoy!!!
Needed this so much this week! It’s especially difficult to spread ate family’s opinions from my own. One foot in front of another.. thank you
I have a habit of second guessing myself and I know I shouldn’t
