Monday Oracle – 18 February 2019

“ It is in the shelter of each other that the people live. -Irish proverb ” 
Louisa Thomsen Brits, The Book of Hygge: The Danish Art of Living Well

Hello, Lovelies!

February is a month for action and self-empowerment – for taking your plans and turning them into goals, action steps and habits. It’s a month for speaking your truth and standing your ground. It’s a month for creating positive change, embracing your individuality and investing in yourself and your dreams. It’s a short month that packs a big punch! Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card Shelter brings us.

This week Shelter urges us to look to the environment. What can we do to help protect and nurture this habitat in which we all co-exist? The earth is our one irreplaceable home, and if it becomes uninhabitable due to climate change, species extinction, deforestation, pollution, and water scarcity then all of us lose.

There are already many grass-roots organisations that are taking the initiative to create a more sustainable and green world. Or perhaps you could start your own.

Here are our favourite simple actions that everyone can take to help the planet:

  • Plant trees. If every person planted ten trees we would go a long way towards halting or reversing climate change. Also think food plants, balcony and indoor plants and plants with flowers that encourage and feed insects, bees and birds.
  • Reduce your consumerism, re-use and recycle.
  • Support a group (financially or with your time) that is already doing work with conservation, replanting and preservation of biodiversity.
  • Stop buying single-use plastic containers, especially bottled water. Use your own keep-cups and water bottles for hot and cold beverages. Say no to plastic straws and plastic bags.
  • Conserve water and electricity.

Shelter encourages us to make our homes places of safety, sanctuary and nurture. We need to do this for ourselves, but we may also be called to create that safe and nurturing space for someone we love, or to extend that help and support to a friend or stranger. Remember that animals and plants can benefit from us creating those places of sanctuary for them too.

Supportive crystals this week?

Blue Lace Agate supports your Throat Chakra, helping you to find your voice and speak your truth. It’s a great stone for all forms of communication, and it also brings a sense of calm. Sunstone helps you to sit in a place of abundance thinking so that you see the blessings and possibilities in your life. Petrified Wood (pictured) helps you connect to the energies of ancient forests, grounding and calming you and helping to reduce stress, anxiety and inflammation. Green Aventurine supports you to be playful, joyful and optimistic about life.

Helpful essential oils?

Choose any of the following oils or combine them for a diffuser blend to help you create a sense of sanctuary at your home or office:  Vetiver, Geramium, Lavender and Bergamot.

Vetiver is one of my favourite oils. It has a woodsy, earthy fragrance that is very calming and grounding. It will help you to concentrate, soothes anxiety and helps your thoughts become more structured and logical. Geranium helps with creating a sense of safety and is a comforting and supportive oil.  Lavender calms an over-busy or stressed mind and opens you to possibility. Bergamot reconnects you to joy, creativity and hope.

I’m passionate about essential oils and their capacity to support our wellness journey and our spiritual and emotional wellbeing. If you’d like to know more or want to source the oils I recommend and trust visit this site or contact me at channelnc@gmail.com

Monday Oracle – 11 February 2019

A vision without a strategy remains an illusion. ” ~  Lee Bolman

Hello, Lovelies!

February is a month for action and self-empowerment – for taking your plans and turning them into goals, action steps and habits. It’s a month for speaking your truth and standing your ground. It’s a month for creating positive change, embracing your individuality and investing in yourself and your dreams. It’s a short month that packs a big punch! Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card Strategy brings us.

This is an important week. It’s a week for bravely committing to change. It’s a week for boldly choosing a goal, a direction, a potential outcome and then working towards that.

Strategy shows us the need for thinking deeply about HOW we will make this happen, and for breaking our bigger tasks down into bite-sized pieces. We need to play the long game, thinking about our future self even as we live day-by-day.

Strategy also reminds us that someone has already done the thing we want to do, or something like it, so we don’t need to reinvent the wheel. It’s a powerful week for mirroring the good example set by mentors, coaches, individuals or companies whom you’d like to emulate.

The key questions to ask yourself this week:

  • What goals, projects or outcomes do I want to achieve this year or in the next few years?
  • What are the major action steps that will take me from where I am now to my end goal?
  • How can I break those action steps down into even smaller tasks and goals?
  • What bits can I do myself?
  • What bits will need help? And who can help me with that?
  • What is the most logical/sustainable/sensible/practical order for me to undertake these tasks?
  • How will I celebrate my minor and major milestones of accomplishment?

Then take your answers and create your STRATEGY – your plan for achieving these things in your life.

Apply that strategy, tweak and refine it as you go, rest if you need to, and don’t give up. If you work that plan, progress is assured.

Strategy is no good unless it is actioned, so your final question for yourself is: ‘What baby step can I take today that will move me toward my bigger goal?’

DO that thing. Then find another baby step. DO that one. Keep going. You’ve got this!

Sunstone (pictured) helps you to sit in a place of abundance thinking so that you see the blessings and possibilities in your life. Pyrite promotes confidence, good decision-making, courage and the ability to embrace your potential.  Fluorite taps you into your innate creativity, fires up your inspiration and helps you to be honest, objective and innovative with your work.  

Helpful essential oils?

Choose any of the following oils or combine them for a diffuser blend to help you focus, think clearly and structure your ideas and information:  Vetiver, Lemongrass, Lavender and Cypress.

Vetiver is one of my favourite oils. It has a woodsy, earthy fragrance that is very calming and grounding. It will help you to concentrate, soothes anxiety and helps your thoughts become more structured and logical. Lemongrass helps with being open to change and for pattern-breaking.  It’s a beautiful oil to diffuse to promote fresh and positive mental perspectives. Lavender calms an over-busy or stressed mind and opens you to possibility. Cypress will improve your mental focus and clear away those cobwebs in your brain, helping you to problem-solve and work effectively.

A Week for Action! – Monday Oracle 4 February 2019

“Start by doing what is necessary, then what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” ~ St. Francis Of Assisi

Hello, Lovelies!

February is a month for action and self-empowerment – for taking your plans and turning them into goals, action steps and habits. It’s a month for speaking your truth and standing your ground. It’s a month for creating positive change, embracing your individuality and investing in yourself and your dreams. It’s a short month that packs a big punch! Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card New Beginning brings us.

January was a month of planning, of identifying what we want more of and less of in our lives OR of being shown that by the Universe getting right up in our faces and poking her bony finger in our breastbone as the world fell apart around us while saying ‘Do you get it yet?’ (Hopefully, your answer was yes!)

We can’t keep repeating the same old patterns this year. We don’t want to. We can’t afford to. So here is February to help us get firmly on a better path – one that truly supports our goals, dreams, talents and wise inner self.

The week New Beginnings urges us not to quit on the things we started in January and where we’ve already fallen off the wagon. Broke your diet already? Make a list, do a shop, plan and pre-prepare your meals and start again. Slept in instead of going to the gym? Start again tomorrow. Meanwhile, don’t cave, decide you’re a loser and eat an entire tub of icecream. NO. You’ve got this. It’s normal to be wonky when we are trying something new. So you missed the early-morning gym session? Go for a walk. Hydrate. Decide to do better. Haven’t even begun to tidy the mess that is your home? Go pick one drawer, in one room. Or tackle the dirty dishes in the sink. Take a photo of ‘the before’. Tidy it. Take another photo. Compare the two. Remind yourself that progress is possible and that even the tiniest of steps forward is still a step forward. Lots of tiny steps and suddenly you’ll be a long way forward from where you are right now.

New Beginnings helps us to understand that the hardest part of change is committing and getting started because we don’t have any momentum yet, and the results of decisions and actions (or lack thereof) we made yesterday are all we can see. Don’t let your current circumstances dictate your future. Declare self-sovereignty, pick something and just make a start.

New Beginnings also reminds us that between the periods of doing and busy-ness we need to rest, to recharge and to have some fun. Change, healing and help for us and our dreams are all possible. Balance is everything this year and slow and steady will give lasting benefits over big efforts followed by crash and burn. You KNOW this is true so take it to heart. Be done with working and living unsustainably. Take time to build nurture and meaning into your daily life.

Need help to get started? Find a class, coach, course, buddy or mentor to provide support and motivation. (Unless that’s another one of your procrastination patterns, in which case just get on with it!)

Combine Basil, Lemongrass and Bergamot Essential Oils for an uplifting and focusing diffuser blend this week.

Basil is a fabulous oil for motivation and for overcoming exhaustion and overwhelm. It will help with moving you to a place of emotional and spiritual renewal, and aids focus and concentration. Lemongrass helps with being open to change and for pattern-breaking.  It’s a beautiful oil to diffuse to promote fresh and positive mental perspectives. Bergamot boosts optimism and confidence, and is relaxing and calming while maintaining energy levels. These oils can be used individually or combined in a ration of 3:1:4

Energies of February 2019

“ Your greatest self has been waiting your whole life; don’t make it wait any longer. ” 
~  Steve Maraboli

Hello, Lovelies 

At the beginning of every month, I discuss the energies and gifts of the month ahead and how we can best use them to make our lives satisfying, meaningful and productive.

I also choose a card to support the energies of the month. The deck I am using this year is The Good Tarot by Colette Baron-Reid, and February’s card is Ace of Earth.

What you focus on multiplies in February. 

February is a month for action as you move  into self-empowerment.  It’s a  busy month, with lots happening,  so make sure you get some quality downtime when you can.  You’ll find that there will be situations and behaviours you can no longer tolerate this  month, including  from  yourself.  Instead you’ll  look  to  new  behaviours, better  relationships  and healing  or  change  within  existing  situations.  If change  can’t be  negotiated  you’ll  be ready  to  let  go  and  move  on.  You’re  coming  more  and more  into  alignment  with your  inner  wisdom  and  core  values,  and it shows!

This is a  month for standing your ground  –  speaking your truth, standing up for what you believe in,  adding your voice to the voices of others so that you can create change in the world. It’s a big month for activism and social change, standing up for justice and fundamental rights  –  so speak out for yourself and on behalf of those who need your voice because theirs has been silenced or is too small to be heard.

In February you can create strong foundations for future wealth.  It’s a great month for all forms of investment, including investment in yourself, your ideas, your education, your health and wellbeing as well as improving your financial position. Call upon trusted experts. Get your will, insurances and finances in order, join a mentoring program or start/resume a course of study, get back to the gym, launch your business or product, and start a savings or loan repayment program.

This month you can step out of the shadows and into the light for everyone to  see you as you truly are. It’s a month for embracing your individuality and unique quirks and qualities.

The energies of February will top up your gratitude tank and help you appreciate the richness you already have, as well as anticipating the riches still to come.

Best crystals this month?

Blue Lace Agate and Sunstone

Blue Lace Agate (blue colour) supports your Throat Chakra, helping you to find your voice and speak your truth. It’s a great stone for all forms of communication, and it also brings a sense of calm.

Sunstone helps us to sit in a place of abundance thinking so that we see the blessings and possibilities in our life. In Sweden and Norway, in the old ways, it was often referred to as the Fire and Ice stone, as was considered to bring both passion and logic to a person. It is a form of Feldspar.

Essential oils to support your journey?

Combine Basil and Bergamot Essential Oils for an uplifting and focusing diffuser blend this month.

Basil is a fabulous oil for motivation and for overcoming exhaustion and overwhelm. It will help with moving you to a place of emotional and spiritual renewal, and aids focus and concentration.

Bergamot’s complex citrus and floral aroma is one of the favourite ingredients in my French Earl Grey tea! As an essential oil Bergamot boosts optimism and confidence, and is relaxing and calming while maintaining energy levels.

A Week To Tune In – Monday Oracle 28 January 2019


“Listening is about being present, not just about being quiet.” ~ Krista Tippett

Hello, Lovelies!

January is a month for planning, and for becoming clear about what matters to you. It’s a month for prioritising, honouring your heart and putting routines and acts of self-care into place for the year ahead. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card Listen brings us.

In today’s society there is so much pressure upon us to impress, to succeed, to be noticed and thought well of. We’re praised for pushing through, for not making waves, for not crying or falling apart. We’re led to believe that we need an Instagram-worthy life and encouraged to seek out or create those moments. We’re pushed to get a better job, a bigger house, fancier tech and more peak experiences, and to make sure we provide those for our children while protecting them from the dangers of the world. Meanwhile, anxiety, depression, social disconnection and loneliness are at an all-time high.

Which begs the question, What if most of what we have been told will make us happy is wrong?

Listen shows us that no matter how lost we may feel there is always a part of us that knows what will help us to feel better. There is always a wise part of ourselves that knows what truly matters in our life, and in the wider world.

Listen brings us life-changing wisdom this week. It encourages to tap into our feelings of vague uneasiness, insecurity, boredom, resentment, unhappiness or discontent. These are surface emotions – red flags we can follow to get to a deeper truth. All we need to do is keep asking ourselves Why do I feel this way? and then get quiet and wait for answers and insights.

Listen is about doing Soul Work – about caring enough for ourselves that we get off the mind-numbing treadmill of busy-ness and habit, and start tuning in to our Soul’s truth.

Expect to get greater clarity about your relationships, career, health and life direction as you tune in to your inner voice.

Listen is also about being present with those around us. It’s about taking the time to be in the moment with them, opening ourselves to the deeper truths in what they are trying to share with us so that we can help them to feel more understood. Which in turn helps us to understand ourselves better too. It’s a beautiful week for reconnection, for beginning a new and better dialogue, and for embarking on healing old hurts and misunderstandings with the ones you love.

Supportive crystals this week?

Green Jade works with your Heart Chakra to bring balance and integration of Body, Mind and Spirit. It is positive and nurturing, strengthening self-worth. Citrine supports your Solar Plexus Chakra and sense of identity. It is a stone of abundance, clearing blocks of low self-worth and creating flow. Turquoise (pictured) encourages empathy, compassion and the ability to slow down and stay grounded. Amethyst helps you to let go of emotional baggage and invites positive personal and spiritual transformation.

turquoise meaning

Helpful essential oils?

Basil will help with moving you to a place of emotional and spiritual renewal, and aids focus and concentration. Frankincense helps shift grief and trauma, and centers you in your intuitive wisdom.  Wild Orange uplifts mood and replaces anxiety with a grounded optimism. It’s my favourite oil to use when I am anxious or feeling flat. These oils can be diffused on their own or in combination.

A Week For Simplicity – Monday Oracle 21 January 2019


“ Live simply, so that others may simply live. ” 
~ Mother Theresa

Hello, Lovelies!

January is a month for planning, and for becoming clear about what matters to you. It’s a month for prioritising, honouring your heart and putting routines and acts of self-care into place for the year ahead. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card Simplicity brings us.

This week we’re reminded that what we focus on multiplies in 2019. We can focus on our problems or we can focus on solutions. We can focus on what we lack or what we already have. And in every situation, Simplicity guides us to choose a less complicated and simpler life. So much of our life is crammed with stuff, and with busy-ness. No wonder most adults (and sadly so many children too) feel overwhelmed by their day-to-day lives. This week look to where you can let go of commitments and obligations that make your days over-full. Look for where you can simplify your possessions and your spaces too – both at work and at home.

Create some breathing space for yourself. Clean your living spaces and your work spaces. Clutter distracts and de-energises us.

As we move into better alignment with our inner truth and soul direction, thanks in part to this fabulous lunar eclipse energy, Simplicity encourages us to strip back our days, to find some space for ourselves and our loved ones and for the activities that rejuvenate and nourish us.

Some of the best things in life truly are free – friendship, laughter, a walk on the beach, playing with your kids or pets, curled up with a good book or watching a sunrise. Simplicity urges us to make room for those things this week.

Supportive crystals this week?

Green Jade (pictured) works with your Heart Chakra to bring balance and integration of Body, Mind and Spirit. It is positive and nurturing, strengthening self-worth. Citrine supports your Solar Plexus Chakra and sense of identity. It is a stone of abundance, clearing blocks of low self-worth and creating flow. Red Jasper is a stone for mental, physical and emotional rejuvenation. Deeply grounding, it helps you connect to your heart and your truth and encourages a sense of safety. Turquoise encourages empathy, compassion and the ability to slow down and stay grounded.

Helpful essential oils?

Mandarin essential oil is supportive this week. It reduces anxiety, promotes calm and helps us to relax. It also uplifts and re-inspires us.Cypress or Basil will improve your mental focus and clear away those cobwebs in your brain, helping you to focus and work effectively. Lemongrass helps with being open to change and for pattern-breaking.  It’s a beautiful oil to diffuse to promote fresh and positive mental perspectives. These oils can be diffused on their own or in combination.

Free Guided Meditation for the January 2019 Supermoon Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse


 “We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. The old skin has to be shed before the new one can come.” ~ Joseph Campbell

The Supermoon Blood Moon Full-Moon Total Lunar Eclipse is almost upon us. It will happen on January 20/21, and it brings with it great energies of shift and transformation.

This eclipse is the ‘Night of the Luminous Soul’.

It gifts us the capacity to become calm warriors in our families and communities. A calm warrior is brave and strong and does not need aggression or violence in order to fight for their cause. A calm warrior acts with inner strength, wisdom, courage and intelligence. A calm warrior lives with peace in their heart. They act from love.

The eclipse heralds energies of courage, clarity, determination, resilience, patience and empathy. We realise that we are not our struggle. We can sit in compassion for our current selves, rise above our pain and confusion and begin to align ourselves with solutions and actions that will change the face and future of our world, starting right now. It is a time for revelations and breakthroughs, for divine inspiration and conscious creativity. It is a time for clarity and renewal.

Guided Meditation

To help you work with the energies of this Lunar Eclipse I’ve recorded a free Guided Meditation for you. You can sit or lie down to do this meditation. Please choose a crystal or stone to hold in your cupped hands as you listen. You’ll need to set aside twenty minutes for the meditation, and some time afterwards for integration and journalling. It’s also fine to fall asleep while listening to the meditation. To enhance the meditation you may also like to diffuse or anoint yourself with some Jasmine, Neroli or Ylang Ylang essential oil.

You can work with this meditation any time between 18 January and 5 February 2019, when the New moon closes off the energies of the current eclipse.

Here are some simple activities you can do in the next few days to enhance your intuitive connection and psychic ability and to clarify your life direction:

Reflections from the Guided Meditation

Take some time to write down any insights or clarity you received during your meditation. It’s fine to do this meditation more than once, and to add to this journalling exercise over time.

Who Am I?

This activity opens you to your own soul wisdom as well as Universal wisdom. It can help to show you who you are now, and who you have the potential of becoming. Don’t judge anything that comes to you. Write it all down!

Directions: Sit comfortably with your hands in the Anjali Mudra (prayer position) so that your hands are in front of your heart and your eyes are gazing straight ahead. You can close your eyes if you want. (Note: If you also want to work with a crystal for this meditation hold the stone in your cupped hands first, energise it with light, the place it on your lap or on the ground in front of you or under your chair – then sit in the prayer position) Breathe deeply, relax your body and then ask Who Am I? Wait for any words, images or impressions to appear. Then open your eyes and begin to answer this question in your journal. You might want to do this a few times in the next few days, as each time you do this you will be able to go deeper and into more detail.

Using Cards for Clarification:

Choose an oracle or tarot deck that is meaningful to you. Shuffle the cards and then choose three, placing them face down in front of you. Once again sit in Anjali Mudra (prayer position), calm your mind and ask Who am I? When you are ready open your eyes and begin to work with the cards.

Turn over the first card – This shows you who you have been, in the past for this current life, or perhaps even from previous lives. Write down what comes to you in your journal.

Turn over the second card – This shows you who you are right now, including strengths and limitations. Write down what comes to you in your journal.

Turn over the third card – This shows you who you can become, or what you can rise above for this current life. Write down what comes to you in your journal.

Reflection Exercise for Life Clarity: Leave the journal for a while. An hour perhaps, or longer. Whatever feels right to you. Then come back and read what you have written. Look for the words that resonate, and for anything that provides inspiration or direction.

Now write again, this time listing your intentions for this lifetime. Who do you want to be? What do you want to contribute, create, have or experience? How will you do this? Trust that whatever is in your heart is possible!

Enjoy this time of connection and reflection. You’re in our hearts, prayers and meditations, and we wish you well.
Much love, Nicole  xx

How To Set Up A Crystal Grid for the January 20/21 Supermoon Full Moon Lunar Eclipse


“For within your flesh, deep within the center of your being, is the undaunted, waiting, longing, all-knowing. Is the ready, able, perfect. Within you, waiting its turn to emerge, piece by piece, with the dawn of every former test of trial and blackness, is the next unfolding, the great unfurling of wings, the re-forged backbone of a true Child of Light.” 
~ Jennifer DeLucy

One of the things I have always loved to do is to construct a crystal grid to sit out under the sky and absorb all of the energies from the celestial bodies above, as well as the grounded, cleansing and empowering energies of the earth. I place my working and personal stones within the grid, as well as stones for students and for my future Retreats. I’ll often add jewellery too, including pearls. I may even add my singing bowls to be charged.

Right now, with the approaching Supermoon Full Moon Lunar Eclipse of January 20/21 is a perfect time to capitalise on these energies. Set up your grid any time before the 20th, and leave it out for up to a week. Or if you really want to supercharge and anchor these energies leave your grid set up until February 5 and take it down after the energy of the New Moon.

How to Construct a Simple Grid:

To make a basic grid choose a shape to outline a space – think circle, square, triangle or rectangle. Use crystals to anchor the corners or to outline the circle OR use a central anchor stone and then radiate patterns out from that central stone. Spirals can be great for that. If you create a shape whose centre is empty you can place yourself, any other stones, pearls or jewellery in the centre to be charged up within the grid. Energise the grid first before placing items inside. Feel free to also use shells, leaves and flowers in your grid construction.

Energise the grid by running white light into it. You can do this with your hands, or just visualise a stream of white light from the Universe coming in to activate your grid.

Where to set up your Grid:

If you have the space set the grid up on the ground in your yard. You need open sky above you, or a place where moonlight and sunlight will reach. Make sure it is somewhere secure and safe. You could also set it up on a large rock, on a flat cut tree stump, or on a timber deck or table. Crystals and items that might not like rain or moisture can be placed inside a covered glass bowl, jar or bottle to protect them from the elements.

Don’t have any of those? Fill a tray with sand or rice and build your grid on top of that. Try to avoid using salt as a grid base because it can erode some stones. You can also place your grid on a deck, windowsill or balcony.

Creating a Devotional Crystal from the Supermoon Eclipse Energies

This eclipse is the ‘Night of the Luminous Soul‘. It gifts us the capacity to become calm warriors in our families and communities. The eclipse heralds energies of courage, clarity, determination, resilience, patience and empathy. We realise that we are not our struggle, and we can choose to align ourselves with solutions and actions that will change the face and future of our world, starting right now. It is a time for revelations and breakthroughs, for divine inspiration and conscious creativity. It is a time for hope and optimism.

If you would like to make intentional use of these astrological energies, you can use a quartz-based crystal, chosen specifically for this purpose.  The crystals will absorb the energetic qualities of the Lunar Eclipse and will be powerful transformational tools for your journey.

The Devotional Stone will assist with:

  • bringing outdated thought patterns, fears and negative thoughts and behaviours to the surface where they can be cleared and healed
  • developing a clear connection to the Earth
  • stepping into our natural wisdom and intuition
  • moving out of apathy and into action
  • improving communication and co-operation between our heads and hearts
  • encouraging cycles of growth, expansion and sustainable ethical abundance
  • facilitating breakthroughs that bring clarity, clear direction and drive towards positive action in areas that use our talents and gifts
  • heart opening and open communication with others
  • spiritual and psychic opening and awareness
  • connection to our physical body and its real needs
  • deepening calm and inner peace
  • activating our natural leadership skills

Suitable crystals will include:

  • any form of clear quartz; including Tibetan quartz, rutilated or tourmalinated quartz, and herkimer diamonds
  • Smoky quartz
  • Milky Quartz
  • Amethyst
  • Rose quartz
  • Citrine
  • Aventurine
  • Agate
  • Jasper
  • Carnelian
  • Chalcedony
  • Tigers Eye
  • Onyx
  • Any stone you are deeply drawn to and feel a deep conection with

This can be a crystal you wear, or one you hold or have in your space.  You can also charge up more than one, so that you have a few to work with and choose from.

Method:

You’ll need to create a simple crystal grid. Activate and energise your Grid. Then say a simple prayer to bless the sacred space.

Then place any jewellery or crystals within the grid.

Once you are happy with the placement of crystals and other items, say the following words:

I honour the Moon, the Sun and the Spheres.  I invite the vibration of these Celestial Bodies to Bless and Energise my offerings. I open myself to wisdom, healing and Light.  I open myself to my Path, and welcome the opportunity to be of service. I am ready to be all that I came to this life to be.

Leave the grid in place for a minimum of twenty-four hours, including the daylight hours of January 21.  

Once you have pulled the grid down, your crystals and jewellery are ready to use.  

Embrace this beautiful energy that is coming via the Eclipse.  We have chosen this lifetime for ourselves, and it is no accident that we are here right now to help and contribute using our talents, gifts and passion. Live from your heart, and open to being all that you came here to be.  It’s time! 

All my love, Nicole ♥ xx

Monday Oracle – 14 January 2019


“ None of us knows what might happen even the next minute, yet still we go forward. Because we trust. Because we have Faith. ” 
~ Paulo Coelho, Brida

Hello, Lovelies!

This year as I present our #MondayOracle I am dividing the year into Quarters, to correspond with all of us in the community who are using my YOM Planner. Each quarter of 2019 has different energetic themes, so I will choose an oracle or tarot deck that best supports those themes. For our First Quarter, which is all about developing your focus, alignment and direction I will be using the Peace Oracle by Toni Carmine Salerno and Leela J. Williams.

January is a month for planning, and for becoming clear about what matters to you. It’s a month for prioritising, honouring your heart and putting routines and acts of self-care into place for the year ahead. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card Trust brings us.

Trust encourages us to get out of our head and back into our body this week. When we live only in our head we can neglect our physical and emotional wellbeing. We can lose connection to our body’s natural wisdom and make choices that are not healthy or supportive. When we live only from our head we do not hear our body’s constant quiet conversation with us – we stop recognising when we are truly hungry or tired or in need of emotional support. We numb ourselves and stuff ourselves and alienate ourselves from this body that is the housing for our soul.

Have you been over-thinking, over-working and living off adrenaline and stress? Trust comes to your aid this week. Her energies support us reconnecting with our bodies, helping us to move to a place of acceptance of ourselves as we are right now, even if we hold an intention of changing from the way we are today.

This week we’re reminded that our body has its own wisdom. When we tune in to that we can begin to reset our natural patterns and preferences. Our body will gravitate towards the food, movements and habits that will nourish and heal it if only we take time to get out of our head and then pay attention to our inner motivators and instincts.

It’s a great week to see health professionals, to get a medical or dental check-up, to start a healthier food or exercise plan, or to detox and embrace a less-stressed life.

Look to schedule regular self-care, beauty and massage sessions, and put healthy routines in place that support your physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.

Supportive crystals this week?

Green Jade (pictured) works with your Heart Chakra to bring balance and integration of Body, Mind and Spirit. It is positive and nurturing, strengthening self-worth. Citrine supports your Solar Plexus Chakra and sense of identity. It is a stone of abundance, clearing blocks of low self-worth and creating flow. Ruby Zoisite is a stone of transformation, helping you to be empowered in your life. It elevates your confidence and authority, and improves fertility, imagination and innovation. Green Aventurine supports you to be playful, joyful and optimistic about life. 

Helpful essential oils?

Magnolia essential oil helps you to reconnect to your body, and promotes self-acceptance and positive body image. Its fruity, floral aroma is calming and nurturing. Use it on the soles of your feet, and to your pulse points at wrist, neck and over heart like a perfume.

Palmarosa stabilises your emotions and rejuvenates you when you are feeling tired or emotionally battered and bruised. Its gentle nature will help recenter you when you’ve lost your way. Add a few drops to your bath with a little Magnolia or Lavender for a peaceful soak.

Lemongrass helps with being open to change and for pattern-breaking.  It’s a beautiful oil to diffuse to promote fresh and positive mental perspectives.

I’m passionate about essential oils and their capacity to support our wellness journey and our spiritual and emotional wellbeing. If you’d like to know more or want to source the oils I recommend and trust visit this site or contact me at channelnc@gmail.com

Living From Your Heart Space -Monday Oracle 7 January 2019


“Focus on your strengths, not your weaknesses.
Focus on your character, not your reputation.
Focus on your blessings, not your misfortunes.” 
~ Roy T. Bennett

Hello, Lovelies!

This year as I present our #MondayOracle I am dividing the year into Quarters, to correspond with all of us in the community who are using my YOM Planner. Each quarter of 2019 has different energetic themes, so I will choose an oracle or tarot deck that best supports those themes. For our First Quarter, which is all about developing your focus, alignment and direction I will be using the Peace Oracle by Toni Carmine Salerno and Leela J. Williams.

January is a month for planning, and for becoming clear about what matters to you. It’s a month for prioritising, honouring your heart and putting routines and acts of self-care into place for the year ahead. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card Heart Space brings us.

Heart Space reminds us that when we listen to our hearts and do what we love – even if that is a hobby or something we fit into our downtime, like music or gardening or rollerball derby or baking bread – our life becomes richer and more satisfying. We can use these experiences that enrich us to top up the well of love inside us from which we give to others, and that also feeds our creative acts. This prevents us from burning out, running dry or moving into overwhelm and resentment.

This week give thought to the relationships, activities and places that nourish and nurture you. Think about how you can incorporate these into your life on a regular basis. This kind of self-care can be life-changing as it moves you back into energetic flow and aligns you with what matters most to you.

It’s a beautiful week for any kind of creative venture so bake, paint, craft, play, make, write, and create. Or go one further and sign up to a creative class or carve out some dedicated time and space for your art.

Most importantly, don’t just think about it. ACT ON IT! Make a deliberate effort to nurture your heart space this week. DO things that fill you up. Make time for yourself and your dreams, and for doing what you love. This is especially important if your life is stressful and demanding. And remember that what we focus on, multiplies. So focus on what makes you happy and what helps you to feel good about your life. Take your focus away from your problems and look to solutions or something that can bring an energy of gratitude to your life.

Heart Space teaches us that when we begin to live from a place of honouring our own needs, and become happier as a result of better boundaries, self-care and engaging in activities that nourish us we become magnetic to better opportunities, love, synchronicity and magic. All because we moved into flow…

Helpful essential oils?

Grapefruit essential oil will promote optimism and help you to be able to feel into what uplifts you and makes you happy. It’s a super choice if you’re feeling a bit flat or blue. It’s a great blend for your diffuser this week if you combine it with Geranium and Palmarosa. Use 2 to 3 drops of each oil in your blend.

Palmarosa stabilises your emotions and rejuvenates you when you are feeling tired or emotionally battered and bruised. It’s gentle nature will help recenter you when you’ve lost your way.

Geranium is brilliant for helping you relax, unwind and get connected to your creative and intuitive essence. It will uplift you and stimulate creativity, self-confidence and emotional flow – all energies that are great for shifting you into a more positive space. If you’re an over-giver and your tank is dry, Geranium oil will fill you back up again. Apply it to your pulse points at wrist, neck and over heart like a perfume. Place a few drops in your bath water. Diffuse it. One of my favourite uses is as a centering and inspiring pick-me-up. Put a drop in the palm of your hand, rub hands together and then inhale the aroma.

I’m passionate about essential oils and their capacity to support our wellness journey and our spiritual and emotional wellbeing. If you’d like to know more or want to source the oils I recommend and trust visit this site or contact me at channelnc@gmail.com
