I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.

This Quarter I am using Angels and Ancestors Oracle Cards by Kyle Gray, with artwork by Lily Moses, for my weekly oracle readings.
Our card to guide us for the week ahead is FIRE GUARDIAN – Ignite Your Passions.
2023 is a year for change, creating solid foundations, and for spiritual journeying. It’s a year for personal growth, and for clarifying who you are, what you want, and why you are here.
June heralds a return to hope and heart, where we can find direction, optimism, fun and friendship. We are empowered to own our individuality and to find joy in self-expression.
FIRE GUARDIAN – Ignite Your Passions
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 that you’d never be as good?
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? Or whether it was even worth wasting money on something like that?
This week FIRE GUARDIAN brings their 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. You’ll feel yourself coming back to life, or find inspiration about how to make that happen. (WARNING: You may also feel inclined to tell other people to shove it, and just follow the beat of your own drum, after all this time…)
FIRE GUARDIAN also reminds you to encourage others in their own pursuits, and to uplift them where you can, but never at the expense of yourself.
My Top Tip For The Week Ahead:
The rewards for following your heart are many, but they may not be what you expect. Instead of fortune and fame, you may find self-worth, a lifelong passion, an inner steadiness and a stronger sense of identify. You might find your tribe, or your significant other. You might find yourself.
Trust this week. Stay curious. Explore possibilities and then take small concrete steps towards this future version of you.

Here at the Treehouse? Yeah, still no ute. It’s trapped in the shed, and there is not much progress to report. (For those of you who missed it two huge trees and a massive branch fell on our shed a month ago, crushing and breaking it, and Ben’s ute is still inside because no-one has figured out how to get it open without it falling down yet.)
I never made a lemon cake last week, but I did make a fabulous lemon meringue cheesecake. Stay tuned for that recipe – easy as, and so delicious! I also made the kind of definitive big life decision that is terrifying and awe-inspiring all at once. And I told someone. Two people actually – whom I know will hold me to it. So that makes it real. I still have to figure out the how – but once I do that I’ll let you know too.
In other news I ran an Open Office Webinar for my Inner Circle on Saturday – 90 minutes where my members can ask me anything related to their own spiritual and life journeys. It was such a wonderful session of teaching, sharing, connection and heart, and it filled up my cup for the week ahead. I just love what I do, and I feel blessed to walk this Journeymaker’s path.
In the week ahead? It’s a week of planning and creation for my team and me – nicely in line with the energies of the week, and I have a sprinkling of client appointments too. And yoga and writing each morning for me, before I start my work day. Lovely, lovely, lovely.
I’ll be holding you in my prayers and meditations this week, fanning the sparks within you that will help you connect to your inner fire. I have so much faith in you. Don’t give up. Keep pushing through and remain optimistic that you’ll find what you are searching for. We need you and your gifts in the world.
Love, hugs and my best cheerleader dance for you, Nicole xx
