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.

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

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.

Click the arrow below to play the meditation:

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…

Green Aventurine supports you to be playful, joyful and optimistic about life. 

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.

January 2019 Energies – A Month for Defining Priorities and Moving On Up!

“And now we welcome the new year, full of things that have never been” 
~ Rainer Maria Rilke

Hello, Lovelies 

At the beginning of every month, I will 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 January’s card is Five of Earth.

What you focus on multiplies in January. 

That means you’ll need to pay careful attention to the words you use, the thoughts you have and the beliefs you hold.

It’s a great month for creating a Vision Board of images and words that represent your ideal life. Make an effort to talk about and think about the projects, relationships and possibilities that matter to you and inspire you.

Minimise talk and thoughts about your fears, doubts and worries.

This is a month to define your priorities and to identify the areas where you wish to see growth, improvement and progress this year.

It’s also a time to evaluate what hasn’t worked, what is no longer working, and
what is coming to an end.

Make use of this clarity with your planning sessions. Involve your family or team if you can and look for opportunities to connect and collaborate on shared visions.

January is a month to honour your heart, and for all forms of self-care and acts of well-being.

It’s a great month for putting new ways of eating, moving or working into place. Look to schedule regular walks, gym time, massages, hair appointments or whatever else will keep you looking and feeling good this year.

Put some holiday times in your schedule too.

Take the long view of your year ahead. It’s going to get busy fast, so use this
month to set yourself up for nurture and self-maintenance.

January also offers the opportunity to move out of poverty consciousness in any stuck area of your life and to and open yourself to new possibilities.

You’ll feel ready to keep the lessons from years gone by but to no longer
be defined by the past.

This is a month for clariryb and purpose – use this energy to define your priorities and to identify the areas where you wish to see growth, improvement and progress this year.  

It’s time to move on!

Above all, stay positive. Watch your self-talk.  Be aware of old beliefs and that critical or negative voice inside your head. Lovingly put it to one side and get started on building a better life for yourself.

It’s time to start working on your foundation and then grow things from there – sustainably and with a balance between work and everything else.

Best crystals this month?

Green Jade and Citrine

Green Jade works with your Heart Chakra to bring balance and integration of body, mind and spirit. Ut is positive and n urturing, 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. I

Essential oils to support your journey?

Combine Lime and Cypress Essential Oils for an uplifting and focusing diffuser blend this month.

Lime helps clear away stale energy, Use it to clear away the last vestiges of 2018, and any disappointments, hurts or negative emotions that the previous year brought your way. It brings a sense of optimism and renewal for body, mind and spirit.

Cypress is really like taking an energetic broom to the cobwebs in the corners of your life. It gifts focus and clarity, and is a beautiful oil for enhancing calm concentration. It supports being able to plan your life without being limited by self-sabotage or negative thinking.

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

Nicole Cody’s Christmas Gift Oracle ~ For You With Love!


“Your personal truth is your gift to the world.” 
~ Jennifer Elisabeth

Hello Lovelies,

So here we are – another Christmas is upon us.

It’s a joyful time for some, and a trying time for others, and I wanted to acknowledge that, and to remind you that there is always a place here at my table for you. I’m sending you love this Christmas, and remembering you in my thoughts, prayers and meditations.

Now, come sit down with me. Let me pour you a cup of tea while I tell you how glad I am to have you in my life. I’m so grateful to have you as part of our community as we share this journey of life together. Thank you!

Once again I have created an oracle for you. The very first one I ever posted was The Healing Power of Flowers and Fairy Blessings.  We offered a selection of flowers for you to choose from, and each flower came with a message – a mini-reading if you will. It was so well received that I’ve been creating oracles for you ever since.

Today I’m so pleased to offer you another of my Magical Oracles! This time, I’d like you to choose the Christmas Gift that appeals to you the most. Then take your time to unwrap it and receive its message and blessings for you.

Instructions for using today’s post

Scroll down through the following Christmas Gift images and then let yourself come back to the one you are most drawn to.

When you have chosen your gift, scroll further down for your oracle message. Trust that what you most need to know is exactly what you shall choose.

Wherever you are, and whatever your faith and beliefs, I wish you peace today and the days ahead, and joy in your heart. Know that you are loved. Know that you matter to me. I intend only the best for you, and that 2019 be a year that is richly satisfying and filled with love and kindness.

Love and Light, Nicole ❤ xx

♥ Your Gift’s Message ♥

Each Christmas Gift has a message for you for 2019. I have also selected a crystal to best support the message and energies of your chosen gift.  You could wear or hold this crystal, pop it in your pocket, under your pillow or beside your bed. The Power Word is a word to remind yourself of the quality you most need and that you are strongly attracting right now.  You can turn it into your own personal mantra by saying “I choose ___________ ” (insert your Power Word). Your Magical Healing Environment is a place or activity you’ll find supportive and healing.

1.Silver Deer – Emerging Into Light  You’re coming into a time of great change and shift, and all of it for your own best outcomes and results. All of those ideas and dreams need to be given light and space so that they can grow into something tangible in 2019. It’s time for you to shine! It’s a wonderful year ahead. Be brave and keep going. Don’t be afraid to make BIG changes. It’s your year for that. And all of this change will lead to a whole new way of being in the world. ♥ Best Crystal – Ametrine (or an Amethyst and a Citrine)  ♥ Power Word – Transformation ♥ Magical Healing Environment – Quiet time in nature or spaces that nurture and inspire you.  Nature walks, ocean swims, watching the snow or rain fall as you sit inside drinking a warm drink with your journal by your side, being in an art gallery or favourite cafe, a museum or a beautiful garden. Let yourself have time for the inspiration inside you to rise up and be heard.

2. Golden Stars – Healing Blessings The Golden Stars Gift heralds major lasting healing and improvements in your physical and emotional well-being in 2019. You’ll be able to tune in to the wisdom of your body, and will naturally begin to prefer the foods, exercise and other support that best suit your individual needs. You’ll feel a resurgence in energy and mental clarity over the months ahead. You’ll become stronger and increasingly comfortable in your own skin. This newfound health will become the foundation for so many other breakthroughs and advances in your life. ♥ Best Crystal  – CARNELIAN  ♥ Power Word – TRANSFORMATION ♥ Magical Healing Environment – Fresh Air to fill your lungs, to energise you with the sun and healing vibrations of the natural environment, and to get blood pumping through your body as you move around. Resting and meditating in nature is fabulous for you too!

3. Orbs of Light – Bountiful Blessings You are coming into a time of deeper connection, deeper knowing, and deeper intuition. It’s a powerful year ahead for you – one of mystical events and blessings that make every corner of your life feel touched by magic. As you open to your intuitive gifts give yourself some breathing space to contemplate the bigger questions in your life. Make time for reading, meditation and journalling. Expect a bigger connection to God, your Guides and Angels and your own Wise Self. Expect answers to those big questions, and a clarity about your way forward. All is well.  ♥ Best Crystal – LABRADORITE  ♥ Power Word – BECOME  ♥ Magical Healing Environment – Sacred Spaces or alone time. Churches and temples, parks, sitting under old trees, your meditation corner, a library or a quiet corner of the house when no-one else is home.

4. Natural Beauty – Wisdom Blessings This year is fabulous for all forms of learning and study, and for self-development. A year to deepen wisdom, and to expand your mind. A year to master skills. A year for philosophy and deep thinking. A year to truly understand who you are and why you are here. A year that shows you where your life is headed. A year where you will find a deep sense of connection to a path forward or a way to be of service in using your talents and gifts. A year of finding your calling ♥ Best Crystal – LAPIS LAZULI ♥ Power Word – WISDOM  ♥ Magical Healing Environment – Time for thinking, studying and learning.  Libraries, online courses, universities and schools, mastermind groups, workshops and conferences will work well for you this year. Setting up a study or writing space at home will be useful. Find time for long walks in nature, and for meditation too.

5. Happy Santa – Reconnection and Love 2019 brings you back into the flow of life again after too much time on your own. A time to slow down and simplify, a time to connect or reconnect with friends and family, and to make new relationships. A social year, that is enjoyable and meaningful. This is a year all about relationships, connection and enjoyment of everyday life. A nourishing and enjoyable year that sees you develop or deepen relationships that will last the rest of your life. ♥ Best Crystal – RUBY IN ZOISITE ♥ Power Word – HEARTSPACE ♥ Magical Healing Environment – Anywhere you can spend time with people you love and doing things you love.  Coffee with friends, weekend picnics, holidays away, date nights, dinner parties, making music, making art, making love, family time, reunions, travel and socialising – all of these are good for you this year.

6. Trolley of Wonders – Inspiration and Blessed Creation This is a powerful year of creative practice and self-expression for you. This could be renovating your home, writing a book, starting art classes, or putting the things you have made out into the world for others to buy or appreciate. It’s a year for working from your heart, and pouring your heart and soul into everything you do. A year to blossom your creative and life direction, and to deepen your appreciation of your unique individuality and gifts.  Best Crystal – SUNSTONE   Power Word –CREATIVITY ♥ Magical Healing Environment – Your studio, office, workspace or project area. This year you need a combination of inspiration and dedication. Be inspired by other artists or innovators. Take classes. Learn and then stretch yourself in the application of that learning. Spend time creating/making/designing and working on creative projects too. Dedicate yourself to your art or projects. Make them a priority in 2019 and watch how your life changes!

7. Sparkly GiftsLevelling Up In Love and Life!  Life is too short to settle for second best. In your job, in your relationships, in your living environment. In 2019 it’s time to let your life level up. Don’t stay in situations or relationships where you are not happy and fulfilled. Don’t stay friends with people (or family!) who put you down or treat you badly. Value yourself!  If you’re in a relationship talk together about your future and where your life is headed so you can move towards those dreams together. Get help if your relationship is in trouble – whether that is counselling to stay together or to exit the relationship. Be discerning about your life and reward yourself with things that matter deeply to you.  For those of you seeking love, set your sights high and know that this is the year you can make your romantic dreams come true. ♥ Best Crystal – TIGER EYE ♥ Power Word – ABUNDANCE  ♥ Magical Healing Environment – Change.  Change can be a force for good. Plan out your future, a future that you’ll love. Spend time thinking about what positive changes you can make in your life and know that the Universe is supporting you to do so.

8. Simply Wonderful – Sanctuary Blessings What’s needed for you to have a great year in 2019 is a sense of sanctuary – a place where you can feel safe, protected and nurtured. A place where you can be yourself and express yourself. It might be your bedroom, your study, your altar, your backyard. It might be your writing space or your office. It might be your entire home. It needs to be clean. It needs to be comfortable. It needs to make your heart feel glad. It needs to be a space that reflects who you are and what you love. Move if you have to. And if the mess is inside you, get help with that. Do whatever it takes to bring yourself back to a place of inner peace and calm. From that place of sanctuary you’ll see miracles unfold for you in the year ahead. ♥ Best Crystal – SNOWFLAKE OBSIDIAN  ♥ Power Word – SANCTUARY ♥ Magical Healing Environment – Home (whatever that means to you).  Create a space that allows you to feel safe, comfortable, supported and surrounded by beauty and meaning. Start with one small corner. Simple is fine. De-clutter. Make space for rest and new growth.

Possibility and Completion – Monday Oracle 24 December 2018


“We often miss opportunity because it’s dressed in overalls and looks like work” 
~
 Thomas A. Edison

Hello, Lovelies!
December is a month for planning and dreaming, interspersed with fun, curiosity, friendship and celebration.  Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card Eight of Crystals brings us.

This week we are encouraged to pause for reflection as we look back and realise just how much we actually have accomplished this year. It wasn’t necessarily a year where we completed all the goals and dreams we identified at 2018’s beginning, but it has also been a year where we have attended to all manner of planned and unexpected events that have allowed us to solve problems, make decisions and identify issues that needed our attention – especially in relation to others.

Eight of Crystals encourages you to see the things you’d like to bring to a conclusion in 2018, so that you don’t carry their energy forward into the new year. In every ending is an opportunity for a new beginning so, even as you enjoy the end of year Festivities and Holiday Season spare a thought for any current activities and attitudes that would be better replaced with something more supportive of your bigger dreams in 2019.

You’ll also be able to make decisions about what needs to be a priority, now and into the future. You can only work on so many things at a time. This week what matters most or what will give you the best returns on your efforts will become clearer, showing you a direction for the coming year.

There is inspiration and understanding in the air this week. Eight of Crystals will show you projects, skills and interests that can be worked on in 2019 to lead to greater things. It might be something to complete, a skill to master, or a direction forward. Be open to insights and sudden clarity around what you’d like your focus to become in the year ahead.

2019 is a year rich with possibility if you are prepared to do a little work!

Finally, make sure you create the time and space to do something you truly love this week – something just for you. Something that makes you happy or that gives you deep satisfaction. Let that be your gift to yourself!

Supportive crystals this week?

Petrified Wood promotes compassion, wonder, curiosity and benevolence. It is a stone for healing old hurts and allowing hope back into your heart. Amazonite helps you to live bravely and from your heart, especially in regard to your creative projects. It will boost self-confidence and self-worth.  Red Jasper (pictured)is a stone for mental, physical and emotional rejuvenation. Deeply grounding, it helps us connect to our heart and our truth and encourages a sense of safety. Green Aventurine supports us to be playful, joyful and optimistic about life . 

Helpful essential oils?

For Clarity and Direction:  Patchouli essential oil grounds you and opens you to your Higher Self and intuitive wisdom in a gentle and reassuring way. 

For Fun and Flow:  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

A space to learn and grow

The next four years 2019 – 2022 are significant for our personal and spiritual evolution, as well as for the evolution of our planet. I thought long and hard about the best way to support your growth over that time and have decided that beefing up the content in my YOM membership area was the best way to help you grow, adapt and step more fully into your authenticity and the life-path you chose for yourself pre-birth. You’ll see this membership group evolve into an Academy of Learning over the next twelve months so that my team and I (human and energetic) can serve you the best way I know how.

My membership space is a place where I can walk you through the year, explain all the aspects of the month ahead and the crystals we’ve chosen, where I do special webinars with my tribe to teach you new skills and share important information, and where I channel with my guides in live webinars, and answer your questions and provide general support. I often jump into our private Facebook group to pull cards and bring through messages for our members too. And did I mention what an incredible, loving and supportive space our YOM Community is? There is real friendship and belonging there. It’s a safe space, a heart space, and a place for great personal transformation. I totally heart it!

The format of YOM is constantly evolving. In 2019 you will have access to the foundation YOM online course as well as twelve free additional mini-courses and live events over the next year as well as our wonderful private Facebook group.

There are yearly subscription and monthly subscription options. Our Planner and a range of physical support materials and packs and online courses are available too. Everything you need is available through our store.

Want to experience our membership space and community? With every YOM Planner sold between now and December 25 I am offering you a one-month trial and a chance to win a full year’s membership. More details here.

And if you’re ready to connect to your calling in 2019, my February Retreat has been tailor-made for you! I’ve kept just one spot, because we’ve been waiting for you. More information here.

Holding you, as always, in my thoughts, prayers and meditations, and intending for you a life of abundance and joy, where you are no longer limited by your doubts.

All my love, Nicole  ❤ xx

PS: Monday’s oracle card, ‘Eight of Crystals’, is from the Inner Child Cards – A Fairy-Tale Tarot. I use any cards shown as a prompt for channelled messages and my own own intuitive wisdom, so my take is sometimes quite different to the meaning found in a book. 

Boundaries and Bliss – Monday Oracle 17 December 2018


“Her heart was a secret garden and the walls were very high.” 
― William Goldman, The Princess Bride
 

Hello, Lovelies!

December is a month for planning and dreaming, interspersed with fun, curiosity, friendship and celebration.  Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card Rupunze lbrings us.

Rapunzel tells us that it’s time for some serious heart management this week. You’re the keeper of your heart, and you get to decide whether to open or close those gates.

For some of you that will mean setting clear boundaries and being able to say NO, especially in the lead up to Christmas. Tune in and work out how you feel. In fact, you probably already know but might not have been brave enough to honestly claim those feelings. Know that it’s okay if you need to turn down an invitation, decline to participate in something that goes against your values, rescind an offer, put limits on a relationship or situation, or let everyone else go and have fun while you stay home. Where might you need to put some walls up, lock the door, or set security at the entrance and restrict who gets in? Pull back from whatever doesn’t sit comfortably with you.

For some of you it will be time to throw the doors to your heart wide open. Rapunzel shows you that it’s time to take a chance on emotional connection – where it feels right and it aligns well. Of course you need discernment – hearts are tender and precious things – but goodness, this is the week for opening the doors to that heart of yours. Dive right into socialising or projects and places that light you up. Follow your Bliss!

It’s a beautiful week for connecting deeply with the people, places and events that enrich you and give you joy or comfort, but you need to decide what you most need – don’t let others dictate to you what they think might make you happy.

Rapunzel tasks you to be open to opportunity and possibility, but to honour your limits too.

Supportive crystals this week?

Petrified Wood promotes compassion, wonder, curiosity and benevolence. It is a stone for healing old hurts and allowing hope back into your heart. Amazonite helps you to live bravely and from your heart, especially in regard to your creative projects. It will boost self-confidence and self-worth. Snowflake Obsidian is a wonderful stone for any form of pattern-breaking, helping you to invite or invoke change. Rhodonite (pictured) is great for supporting you to follow your heart.

Helpful essential oils?

Rose Essential Oil is my choice this week. This sweet and uplifting oil inspires deep emotional connection and opens your heart chakra to love. It enhances your mood, helps to balance hormones, brings emotional healing and draws joy and peace into your life 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. Put a drop in the palm of your hand, rub hands together and then inhale the aroma. (Here’s a simple three-minute meditation you can do using geranium or any of your favourite essential oils – click here)

If you can’t access a pure rose essential oil,  try Ylang-Ylang, Geranium or Magnolia.

Follow Your Longing – Monday Oracle 10 December 2018



“The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.”
~  Oprah Winfrey

Hello, Lovelies!

December is a month for planning and dreaming, interspersed with fun, curiosity, friendship and celebration.  Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card Seven of Swords brings us.

This week we’re reminded that our imagination exists for a reason and so do our longings. They create the sparks that make a trail of light through the darkened world, leading us to the things that will give us satisfaction, and for which our soul yearns.

Seven of Swords encourages us to stop wishing and start acting this week. If there is no time for action then at least we can create a plan, we can make decisions, we can choose to make space in the near future for more of what matters in our lives.

Feel into your envies, your frustrations, your jealousies and your hungers this week. Don’t be ashamed of them. Don’t turn away. Be brave enough to look into the face of what they are showing you. Let your soul come alive with desire again. Unchain yourself from the humdrum of duty, obligation and routine. Allow possibility to slip into your heart and illuminate you with hope once more. Vow to yourself that your future can be different, and then make room for that to happen.

It will help you to work out your priorities and where to best spend your precious energy. Snowflake Obsidian is a wonderful stone for any form of pattern-breaking, helping you to invite or invoke change.

Helpful essential oils?

Coriander essential oil is a good choice for your diffuser this week. It helps you to know yourself, and to reconnect with your truth. To make an effective blend to boost confidence and optimism add Bergamot, Geranium and Cinnamon Bark in a ration of 4:3:2:1.

Cinnamon also gives that lovely spicy Christmassy feel to a blend, helping put you in the holiday mood.
