Reconnecting to Stillness – Monday Oracle 4 September 2023


When you lose touch with inner stillness, you lose touch with yourself.

When you lose touch with yourself, you lose yourself in the world.

Your innermost sense of self, of who you are, is inseparable from stillness.

This is the I Am that is deeper than name and form.

~ Eckhart Tolle


Hello, Lovelies!

This Quarter I am using The Sacred Forest Oracle by Denise Linn, with artwork by Scott Breidenthal, for my weekly oracle readings.

Our card to guide us for the week ahead is 33. Reflecting Pool – STILLNESS. 

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.

September is a month to find your flow, to know yourself better, and to connect or reconnect with your intuition, creativity and important relationships (including projects or your calling). It’s a big month of letting go and going deeper – wit many things.


33. Reflecting Pool – STILLNESS

It’s in moments of stillness that we can truly connect with ourselves. We can hear our inner thoughts, we can feel our deepest emotions, we can slow ourselves down and find truth and peace. This week we’re invited to make time for that kind of communion.

One of the best ways to do that is simply to sit quietly and breathe. Keep breathing, but slow your breath down. Feel your heart beating. Become aware of everything, even as you dissolve into nothingness.

Keep on breathing.

Let your mind empty out its chatter. Free of thoughts, let the images around you run through your mind like water but not take hold. No agenda.  No to-do list. No project to work on. No thinking at all.

There’s a lot to be said for inviting moments of stillness into your life.  Stillness expands time. Stillness restores and nourishes. Stillness lets you sit in your Soul, instead of in your head.

It’s easier than you think. Take a moment, find a quiet corner of the world, sit down and breathe, and just let the world carry on around you. Be aware, but not involved.  Let your mind relax and let go.  Breathe. Relax. Be.

Trust that taking time like this will help restore you back to flow.

My Top Tip For The Week Ahead: 

At the start of every day, or as you go to bed the night before, identify five things you can do that will be a kindness for yourself. Look for ways to comfort, nurture, support, relax yourself, ease your burdens or create moments of stillness. List these things so that you actually do them. Otherwise your day might go by in a blur and you won’t have done a single thing for yourself at all…

This might include making a healthy lunch, organising dinner in advance so if you’re tired you can still eat well, taking time out to go for a walk or to have a cup of coffee, washing your hair, reading a book. (If you’re stuck for ideas there are 3 pages of self-care suggestions in my Journeymaker’s Planner under the Lucky Dips section!)


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

Crystals to support you this week – Clear Quartz, Rose Quartz, Tree Agate, Carnelian, Turquoise, Selenite

It’s been an unexpected week here at the Treehouse. I have friends and clients going through big life changes; recurrences of cancer, sudden serious health diagnoses, death of a partner, loss of a child.

So, last week was work, interspersed with visits, cups of tea and hugs and delivered meals and baking and long phone calls and shared tears and lots of navigation of life’s twists and turns. Followed by extra quiet time and self care for me. I’m an empath – I feel things like this very deeply.

On top of that I decided to run a free Challenge over September to help you find your flow, which starts tomorrow (details here – but honestly, just show up at the blog tomorrow and you’ll be fine!), I handed over a completed manuscript to a book coach friend, and I also got hit by figurative lightning as I sat in front of television with Ben on Friday night and suddenly had a whole scene flash through my head which will fix my current story dilemma for the book I am working on over my solo writing holiday later this month. Hooray!

And yes, I am still up to my proverbial neck in crystals. As well as that, the forward box of my Journeymaker’s Planner for 2024 turned up (it’s positively gorgeous!), and some other lovely goodies showed up too, which we’ve been working on for months, so that was very exciting.

This week’s plan is to run my Challenge, work with clients, and get all these boxes of rocks sorted and into my packing room or back into one of our storage sheds. I think I’ll need some procrasti-baking to get me through!

Wishing you all a gentle week of flow, connection and self-care, with a dash or two of creativity.
Lots of love, Nicole xx
