You can’t calm the storm, so stop trying. What you can do is calm yourself. The storm will pass.

This Quarter I am using The Shaman’s Dream Oracle by Alberto Villoldo and Colette Baron-Reid with artwork by Jena DellaGrottaglia, for my weekly oracle readings.
Our card to guide us for the week ahead is 43. OVERFLOW – OVERWHELM AND PLENTY
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.
October is a month for making friends with uncertainty, for exploring your creativity, taking risks, and putting yourself out there. It’s a fabulous month for love and socialising too.
43. OVERFLOW – OVERWHELM AND PLENTY
This week encourages you to honour your emotions. It also encourages self-care.
There’s a lot going on in the world right now, and it’s highly likely that there’s a lot going on in your own life. So, tune in. Be honest with yourself about how you feel. If you’re overwhelmed or exhausted don’t keep pushing. Pull back. Hermit for a while. Stay off social media and stop watching the news. Give yourself some healing space and rest. Gift yourself time with people and activities that replenish you. I also recommend counselling/coaching if you feel like you aren’t making progress with your headspace or heartspace.
Meditation, time in nature, yoga, movement, art, music, friends and family that create a circle of safety – all of these things are good ideas in the days ahead.
If you’re in a good place, and brimful of gratitude and positivity then it’s a great week for connecting, celebrating and collaboration. Reach out to people who might need a warm smile, a friendly hug or a kind word.
It’s also a terrific week for pouring your emotions into creative projects.
My Top Tip For The Week Ahead:
Do what makes you happy. Stop doing what makes your miserable, or at least get a plan in place to find a better alternative. Life is too short to stay stuck, sad, or unfulfilled.
Happiness CAN be a choice – but to do that you might also need to make changes, make decisions and DO things to move you towards a happier life.

Crystals to support you this week – Clear Quartz, Citrine, Labradorite, Ametrine, Gold, Silver
I’m having an unexpected week of routine medical tests, health care, and a little quiet time to get ready for our Christmas rush. Instead of choosing to be frustrated with that, I am choosing to be grateful for such excellent care, and for compassionate and thorough specialists.
This ‘putting myself first and resting enough’ thing is actually starting to feel okay, and I’m enjoying this slower pace, In fact, I think I could get used to it.
As for our Christmas and 2024 stock? All my crystals and extra crystally-things (it’s a secret for now) have been charged up in my grids, and we’re well into the gift-wrapping of the goodies I’ll be sharing soon, including our new Planner.
Stay posted for my updates on all of that goodness!
Right now the hard copy of The Journeymaker’s Planner 2024 is already available on Amazon Australia and Amazon USA and it will be available through Etsy and my new online store later in October. The digital copy will also be available via Etsy and my online store soon too.
It’s been a fabulous companion for me and many of you over the past eight years, and number nine may be our best yet! I hope you love it as much as I do.
Love, hugs and a deep sense of gratitude for my beautiful, creative and love-filled life, Nicole xx
