“Got an idea to start”, “Thinking to start” and “Making a commitment to start” is one aspect of life.
Actually “Starting” what you truly want to do in life, is a completely different ball game.
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 10. Daffodil Fairy – NEW BEGINNINGS.
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 – with many things.
10. Daffodil Fairy – NEW BEGINNINGS
What a fantastically supportive week this is for making things happen, and for new beginnings.
But here’s the thing…
It’s not enough to think about it. It’s not enough to dream about it. It’s not enough to plan for it, to long for it, to hope for it, to wish for it. It’s not enough to simply set an intention.
Eventually, if you really do want it, you have to commit. And then you need to take action.
Don’t let this put you off though.
The Universe doesn’t need some grand gesture, some super-human effort.
A tiny step is fine.
Just as long as you back yourself and take another tiny step soon after.
Then another one.
And another one.
Until the hard thing becomes easier.
Until the started thing becomes done.
The energies of this week encourage you to begin. Whatever it is that you want for yourself, take a tiny step in that direction. And then another. Expect synchronicities, all kinds of assistance and inspiration, and a sprinkle of magic as you become the living embodiment of the journey towards your dream.
My Top Tip For The Week Ahead:
What do you want to achieve? Start by getting clear. Write it down. Be specific. It doesn’t matter if it is something which right now seems impossible. Many wonderful things started out as impossible dreams. Commit to working towards your goal. What tools or equipment do you need? What information? Do you need help? Who can help you? Break your goal down into the smallest steps possible and begin, without fanfare or fuss. Then keep going. Day after day. Just small steps.
A year from now you’ll be glad you did.

Thanks so much everyone, for all of your wonderful birthday wishes. I had a wonderful day with my boys, and a very romantic dinner at the local Surf Club – looking out over the water.
This week I’m doing my final prep before I head off on my solo writer’s retreat. I’ve got my suitcase out, and the packing has begun. So far my bag holds my favourite mug, herbal tea, post-it notes, index cards, blutack, paper and pens, journal and a novel, notepads, a printed draft manuscript and fingerless gloves for cold mornings. I need to add in my laptop and chargers, my portable Find Your Flow grid and a few extra crystals, and my vast assortments of meds, herbs and other health things. Hopefully I’ll manage to remember to pack clothes too.
I’m doing my best to embody the energies of the week, and the month, with this commitment to my writing project. I’m equally excited and nervous, but I’m taking that as a good thing.
In other news my Journeymaker’s Planner 2024 has arrived into Amazon Australia, and is currently being processed for Amazon USA. It is super gorgeous – I know you’re going to love it! I’m still awaiting shipment of Planner stock for my own storeroom here at the treehouse, but by early October everything should have arrived to my home, ready for our big end-of-year/2024 offerings through Etsy and our new online store. I still have a bazillion crystals to channel and photograph, so that’s on the agenda for the next few days before I head off, but I feel like things are coming together!
I’m cheering you on as you make space to do the things that matter most to you this week.
Much love, hugs, and helpful to-do lists, Nicole xx
