A Grateful Heart Is A Magnet For Miracles – Monday Oracle 9 October 2017

“When you are grateful, fear disappears and abundance appears.” 
~  Anthony Robbins

Hello, Lovelies!

If you read my forecast for October, you’ll know that it’s a month of energies of love, friendship, community and togetherness. It’s also a month for getting creative and for self-acceptance.

Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts which the oracle card Abundance brings us.

So, what awareness does Abundance bring us this week?

We’re reminded that in order for things to stay within our circle we must treat them well, and with respect. When we care for what we have it strengthens its connection to us. If we treat it badly or with disregard, the connection weakens or falls away.

This week Abundance encourages us to put energy into the things that matter to us. That might be our marriage, our children, our friendships. It could be our money, business or art. By paying attention, by expressing gratitude, by taking care and giving time we nourish these connections, and grow these things that we care about. The Law of Attraction would explain this as ‘Whatever you put your attention to, multiplies in your life.’ As we pay attention we also find deeper connection and a stronger flow of energy and inspiration. (Conversely, it is also important not to keep telling yourself the old stories of hardship and hard-done-by. Or guess what will keep showing up?)

This week’s Abundance energies also apply to our relationship with ourselves. We’re called to nourish and take care of ourselves this week, and to give ourselves the time and attention we need. Look for areas where you are stressed and out of balance, and start there. Clean the mess, create some breathing space, attend to the things that are worrying you. We can never be completely in flow if we are held back by the energy of things left neglected and undone. These old energies act like drains that siphon off our enthusiasm and life force. As soon as we make a start with dealing with problems areas it creates a shift, and then opportunity and ideas can begin to show up again in our lives.

Above all, find time for gratitude and for appreciation this week. What do you want to have multiplied in your life? Direct your thoughts and visualisations toward those things. Create a beautiful corner, a lovely meal, or style an outfit that uplifts you. Think about the existing blessings in your life and feel that appreciation ripple out from you, knowing that it will now attract more of that same energy back into your life. Become a magnet to new possibilities and then open to allowing these energies in your life. We don’t always need to know how to create a situation in our lives – all we need to do is be open to it, trust that it can be possible and then keep working on the things we can do. In that space of action and allowing, miracles can happen.

Supportive crystals this week?

Orange Calcite connects you in to inspiration and is a wonderful beginner stone for tuning in to the spiritual realms. Expect accelerated connection with your Guides! If I could choose only one stone this week it would be Orange Calcite. Red Jasper is a stone for mental, physical and emotional rejuvenation. Deeply grounding, it helps you connect to your heart and your truth. Fluorite helps us to be honest, objective and innovative with our creativity. Pearls nurture us, helping us to heal the pain of breaking up and moving on from an idea, situation or relationship. Each of these stones can be worn, held, placed into a work space or popped into your pocket.

 

Helpful essential oils?

I’m loving Young Living’s Clarity and Believe blends for October. Use Clarity for focus, inspiration and breakthroughs. Dab a drop on your Crown Chakra and the soles of your feet, inhale directly or add to your diffuser. Use Believe when you are doubting yourself and want to find your confidence and self-belief. It’s great to inhale directly, diffuse or add a drop to Heart Chakra and inner wrists. A few drops added to your bath make for magical self-care.

Want to make your own blend? Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own for you this month, but they also make a delicious combination for diffusing. Frankincense elevates our mood and promotes spiritual connection and intuition, Lavender keeps us in flow and relaxed,  Ylang Ylang opens our hearts and is supportive when we feel anxious or overwhelmed, and Bergamot for joy, gratitude and optimism. To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser. You can find the oils 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

The Energies of October – 2017

“This is how it works. I love the people in my life, and I do for my friends whatever they need me to do for them, again and again, as many times as is necessary. For example, in your case you always forgot who you are and how much you’re loved. So what I do for you as your friend is remind you who you are and tell you how much I love you. And this isn’t any kind of burden for me, because I love who you are very much. Every time I remind you, I get to remember with you, which is my pleasure.” 
~  James Lecesne

 

Hello, Lovelies :)

Let’s do a Happy Dance – October is here and with it comes energies of love, friendship, community and togetherness. It’s also a month for getting creative and for self-acceptance.

 

Cards for the Month:

I’ve chosen two cards for October for you: one from the Osho Zen Tarot Deck, and one from Colette Baron-Reid’s Wisdom of the Oracle. Please note I don’t use these cards in the conventional way, but rather as a stimulus for channelled information.

Here is what I have received from each card:

“The greatest wisdom is in simplicity. Love, respect, tolerance, sharing, gratitude, forgiveness. It’s not complex or elaborate. The real knowledge is free. It’s encoded in your DNA. All you need is within you. Great teachers have said that from the beginning. Find your heart, and you will find your way.” 
~  Carlos Barrios, Mayan elder and Ajq’ij of the Eagle Clan

October heralds a deep need within us for more meaningful connection and joyful authentic expression, even as other aspects of our lives or the world give us pause or worry.

It’s the perfect month to find groups with whom you share interests, or to start a group or a tribe of your own! It’s a month for family, for friendship and for community. It’s a time for supporting each other, or for asking for support for yourself or people or projects dear to you.

October encourages you to accept yourself just as you are. To love yourself just as you are. It also reminds us to accept others as they are, in that same spirit of heart-centered generosity.

This is a month for coming together, for celebrating, for finding joy in the everyday and for embracing the roles of nature, arts and culture in our lives. If you are an artist, a gardener, a writer, a musician or any other kind of creative this is a magical month for you as inspiration visits and your ideas clarify. If you or your home need a makeover this is a fabulous month for that too.

Never stuck with your art (or even started) because you’re a perfectionist or you have to be the best or not bother? You can break out of that and reconnect with your heart through art just for yourself this month. Expressing yourself creatively is soul work. It’s healing. It’s joyful.

You might be amazed what you learn about yourself. Get to it! But remember to take plenty of time out to refill the well from which your inspiration springs.

The second card I’ve chosen is Yang. This speaks to the magic we can create when we honour our art, and as we put our creative offerings (art, music, ideas, business, healing, legacy) out into the world.

“Everyone must leave something behind when he dies, my grandfather said. A child or a book or a painting or a house or a wall built or a pair of shoes made. Or a garden planted. Something your hand touched some way so your soul has somewhere to go when you die, and when people look at that tree or that flower you planted, you’re there. 

It doesn’t matter what you do, he said, so long as you change something from the way it was before you touched it into something that’s like you after you take your hands away. The difference between the man who just cuts lawns and a real gardener is in the touching, he said. The lawn-cutter might just as well not have been there at all; the gardener will be there a lifetime.” 
~  Ray Bradbury

In October, put energy into what matters to you, and to creating your vision and action plan for yourself, your art, your legacy or your business.

No matter what it is that you create or plan this month, put your whole heart into it. How to do that? Cut out the distractions so you can focus on being in the moment with whatever you are creating. Get stuff done, don’t just think about it or endlessly plan.

Use music, scent and motion to help lead you into that state where the creative magic happens.

Know that there is a place in the world for your offerings, and that this month supports you to dive deep into whatever that is.

Best crystals this month?

Red Jasper and Orange Calcite

Red Jasper is a stone for mental, physical and emotional rejuvenation. Deeply grounding, and it helps you connect to your heart and your truth.

Essential oils to support your journey?

I’m just loving Young Living’s Clarity and Believe blends for October. Use Clarity for focus, inspiration and breakthroughs. Dab a drop on your Crown Chakra and the soles of your feet, inhale directly or add to your diffuser. Use Believe when you are doubting yourself and want to find your confidence and self-belief. It’s great to inhale directly, diffuse or add a drop to Heart Chakra and inner wrists. A few drops added to your bath make for magical self-care.

Want to make your own blend? Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own for you this month, but they also make a delicious combination for diffusing. Frankincense elevates our mood and promotes spiritual connection and intuition, Lavender keeps us in flow and relaxed,  Ylang Ylang opens our hearts and is supportive when we feel anxious or overwhelmed, and Bergamot for joy, gratitude and optimism. To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser. You can find the oils here.

 

Whatever your focus in October, remember to take time for yourself, to get enough sleep, and to spend some time in your Happy Place (whatever that is for you) and in the healing arms of nature.

Lots of love, Nicole❤ xoxo

Breakthroughs Ahead! – Monday Oracle September 25 2017

A single day is enough to make us a little larger or, another time, a little smaller.
~ Paul Klee

Hello, Lovelies!

If you read my forecast for September, you’ll know that it’s a month of possibility and expansive energy, of change and curiosity, and of starting small projects that may take a long time, but that we care about deeply. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts which the oracle card Recovery brings us.

So, what awareness does Recovery bring us this week?

This is a card of hope, heralding a time of intense healing, breakthroughs, self-discoveries and, for some, the need to answer a personal calling.

Got a problem? Recovery reassures you there are solutions and that the best way to deal with your problem is to stop going it alone and seek someone who has successfully walked the same hard road that you now struggle with. This week, find a mentor, a teacher, a counsellor, expert, therapist, course or coach. Walk that hard road with their guidance.The best criteria for choosing someone to work with? They’ve travelled the road ahead of you and are now in a better place – or they are deeply experienced in bringing positive results to someone in your situation and have a track record of success. How do you find the right person? Ask questions, use word of mouth, look for evidence of good results, trust that the right kind of help can show up in your life.

There’s no need to reinvent the wheel. Why make life harder for yourself than it has to be? This week use someone else’s system, knowledge, road map.

It’s also a great week for deep thinking and reflection, journalling and self-work. Ask, and expect answers. Even more, expect to gain understanding and knowledge so that you can make lasting change in your life.

For a select few this is also a week where you will feel stirred to answer a calling. You see, you will be the one who blazed the trail and survived the hard journey. If that’s you, it’s time to use that experience to help guide and support others. You can be the teacher, healer, guide or author that you wished you’d been able to find for yourself.

Supportive crystals this week?

Smoky Quartz keeps us grounded and gifts us inner strength and the ability to listen deeply. Fuchsite  taps us in to the healing power of nature, and helps us to rediscover optimism. Moss Agate helps us navigate shift and opens us to change. Rose Quartz is a stone of love and nurture – the crystal world equivalent of a great big reassuring hug, a soothing cup of tea and a best friend to hold your hand through life’s decisions and challenges. 

Here are those stones (as well as some Kimberley Fire Quartz) in the grid we’ve made for our Temple of Light Retreat that I’m facilitating this week:

Helpful essential oils?

Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own for you this week, but they also make a delicious combination for diffusing. Frankincense elevates our mood and promotes spiritual connection and intuition, Basil enhances focus and mental clarity,  Lavender supports us emotionally and gifts us calm and a sense of relaxation and safety, and Orange for joy, gratitude and optimism. To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser. You can find the oils 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.

Feeling Tired Or A Bit Emotionally Wobbly?

“Where there is ruin, there is hope for a treasure.” 
~  Jalaluddin Rumi

 

How are you feeling, lovelies? Are you travelling okay?

It’s rather a fierce week, this week. And so was the week we’ve just had. Lots of solar flares, and a few polar shifts thrown in.

All this astrological and ecological phenomena can be quite disturbing for sensitive and empathic people. What makes us sensitive – that ability to feel and sense energies and information that might not be so readily apparent to others – is also the thing that can make us more vulnerable to influence by the energetic shifts and changes of our solar system.

We may experience a sudden draining of our energy, feel heavy and fatigued, or ache as though we are coming down with the flu. We may find that we feel depressed or anxious for no reason, or that our sleep patterns are disrupted. We may feel unbalanced, not quite in our body, suffer from headaches or fuzzy thinking, or be irrational, teary, angry or upset – once again with no apparent cause.  We may become highly over-sensitive – to foods, people, weather, noise and light. We might decide that our ideas suck, that we suck, that the whole situation sucks…

But lovelies, it’s a phase and that phase will pass. Right now the solar flares are making the earth’s crust charged with positive ions rather than the usual negative ones. That makes it hard for us to ground. We become like sleep-deprived toddlers, incapable of clear thought or reason as all of the positive charged ions we naturally build up in us by thinking, living and interacting with computers and electrical devices suddenly has no good way to clear our system.

There are several practical things you can do to ride out the energies of this week (which finish up in the early hours of Friday – thank goodness!):

  • standing or soaking in water will help – so think baths or foot soaks with a handful of sea salt or epsom salts, or a swim or paddle in the closest river, ocean or lake.
  • staying well hydrated, especially with electrolytes
  • using magnesium orally or topically
  • good crystals to wear or carry include hematite, red jasper and black tourmaline
  • for emotional distress use carnelian and moonstone
  • eat lots of grounding root vegetables, such as potato, onions, garlic, radish, sweet potato, carrots, beetroot, turnips and parsnips
  • set clear boundaries and avoid situations and people who tax or distress you
  • essential oils will also help; geranium for emotional comfort and clarity, frankincense for energetic connection and to stabilise your intuitive abilities and sensitivities, lavender as a soother for frazzlement – I also love Young Living’s Peace and Calming blend at times like these, to ease me into sleep and keep me rested
  • avoiding an excess of sugar and caffeine

The good news? It’s a powerful week for honouring our instincts and getting clear about what matters to us. This week trust your instincts and let them guide you – above using your mind (which may be fried!) or your intuition (which is a combination of heart and mind – cos mind fried!). You’ll find that living instinctively brings you great clarity and direction. In fact, if you tap into your instinctive energy this week you’ll find that you can reach those breakthroughs that you’ve been seeking and not finding using all your other usual methods.

Not sure how to use your instincts to navigate life? I covered it all in yesterday’s blog.

 

Above all, be kind to yourself this week. Live gently and sustainably if you are feeling a little wobbly, and know that this will pass. It’s not you. You’re not going crazy. You’re just a sensitive soul – which is a GOOD thing. You can do this, and the benefits of tuning in instinctively will help you to truly understand yourself and what best serves you and your life path.

Sending so much love your way,

Nicole ❤ xx

Selflessness or Self Sacrifice? – Monday Oracle 11 September 2017

“There are two kinds of guilt: the kind that drowns you until you’re useless, and the kind that fires your soul to purpose.”
~ Sabaa Tahir

Hello, Lovelies!

If you read my forecast for September, you’ll know that it’s a month of possibility and expansive energy, of change and curiosity, and of starting small projects that may take a long time, but that we care about deeply. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts which the oracle card Guilt brings us this week.

So, what awareness does Guilt bring us this week?

The overwhelming message this week is to stop doing for others what they could do for themselves, and to use your time on what matters to you!

Expect strong emotions this week, and use them as your compass. Projects, people and places may call to you. Maybe you want to dive right in to a new art project. Perhaps you’re deep in a renovation and all you want to do is keep going while your energy is high. You may feel compelled to spend time in nature, or hanging out with a friend. Or maybe you’re the opposite and you’ll feel the need to disconnect and be on your own for a while to recharge your batteries.

You may also be feeling guilty, resentful or angry because there are relationships, duties or tasks calling on your time, and you’d rather be somewhere else, doing something else!

Your emotions will help to show you your priorities and what truly matters to you on a soul level this week. Look to what excited you or engages you. Tune in to any anger or resentment you feel too. That will also tell you something. If you are tired of being the one who puts in all the effort in a relationship, if you’re feeling guilty because you’re spending time with someone out of duty when you’d much rather be anywhere else, if you’re pretending not to mind supporting someone else when really you feel taken for granted – all of these situations show you clearly what isn’t working for you.

This week pay attention to your feelings and let them show you where to put more of your energy and where to put less. It’s not selfish to look after your own needs, and there is little point in wasting precious time and energy on people and situations who have little regard for your efforts.

If self-sacrifice means you are sacrificing yourself in order to please or appease others then the price is too high. Selfless giving doesn’t cost your soul – it fills you up with love or gratitude or satisfaction instead. Make sure your service comes from selflessness! (How can you tell the difference? Tune in to your feelings. Are you drained {self sacrifice} or filled up {selflessness}? There’s your answer.)

This week brings great emotional clarity about life priorities, but with that clarity may also come the realisation that you can’t keep doing what you’ve always done. It may suddenly become urgent for you to make changes that allow what’s important to you to take more space in your life. That’s okay. Honour your needs and make those changes.

Supportive crystals this week?

Ocean Jasper is a healing stone that promotes deep rest and relaxation, that attunes us to our feelings, and that gives us perspective and clarity with projects and situations. Rose Quartz is a stone of love and nurture – the crystal world equivalent of a great big reassuring hug, a soothing cup of tea and a best friend to hold your hand through life’s challenges. Amazonite will help you to bravely make changes.

Helpful essential oils?

Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own for you this week, but they also make a delicious combination for diffusing. Frankincense elevates our mood and promotes spiritual connection and intuition, Lavender keeps us in flow and relaxed,  Ylang Ylang opens our hearts and is supportive when we feel anxious or overwhelmed, and Orange for joy, gratitude and optimism. To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser. You can find the oils here.

This is No Time for Perfection! – Monday Oracle 4 September 2017

“Ring the bells that still can ring 
Forget your perfect offering 
There is a crack in everything 
That’s how the light gets in.” 
~  Leonard Cohen

Hello, Lovelies!

If you read my forecast for September, you’ll know that it’s a month of possibility and expansive energy, of change and curiosity, and of starting small projects that may take a long time, but that we care about deeply. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts which the oracle card Perfection brings us this week.

So, what awareness does Perfection bring us this week?

  1. Start where you are, and offer what you have. Don’t wait for it to be perfect or you may never have anything to offer and that fruit (your good ideas or early work and enthusiasm) will wither and die on the vine.
  2. Plant seeds, even if they will take a long time to bear fruit. (It’s an analogy, loves. What I mean is this – start writing your book, begin that study course, craft the beginnings of the gigantic hand-made quilt, tidy the first drawer in the first cupboard of the first room in your house, submit your work or application for that competition, exhibition or new position. And yes, plant that garden that won’t fruit for ages!)
  3. Own the perfection of who you are, and speak and act from that space. This is simply about being yourself, and owning your skills, talents and preferences, rather than being ‘perfect’. Living for yourself and being true to that, rather than living to please or appease others.
  4. Let other people see your flaws and imperfections, especially in new relationships, especially with your tribe, community or clients. Keep it real. Real works. Real gifts you the possibility of a solid foundation on which to grow, rather than creating a house of cards where you dwell in fear that it might be blown down in the first slight breeze.

This week work on being happy with yourself, and on making the decisions and choices that fit the longer-term vision of how you would like you and your life to be. Let go of perfection that holds you stuck and worried. Just get on with it and do the best you can.

 

Supportive crystals this week?

Ocean Jasper is a healing stone that promotes deep rest and relaxation, and that attunes us to nature and our surroundings, helping us to feel at home wherever we are, including feeling at home in ourselves. Rose Quartz is a stone of love and nurture – the crystal world equivalent of a great big reassuring hug, a soothing cup of tea and a best friend to hold your hand through life’s challenges. Amazonite for being brave in putting yourself and your ideas out into the world.

Helpful essential oils?

Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own for you this week, but they also make a delicious combination for diffusing. Frankincense elevates our mood and promotes spiritual connection and intuition, Lavender keeps us in flow and relaxed,  Ylang Ylang opens our hearts and is supportive when we feel anxious or overwhelmed, and Orange for joy, gratitude and optimism. To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser.

Sifting and Sorting! – Monday Oracle 28 August 2017

“When you’re following your inner voice, doors tend to eventually open for you, even if they mostly slam at first.”
~ Kelly Cutrone

Hello, Lovelies,

If you read my forecast for August, you’ll remember that August brings an emerging energy of creativity, emotional healing and an abiding need for more balance in our lives. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts which the oracle card Rejection brings us this week.

There are two aspects to the energies of the week ahead, and both of them relate to discernment. Let’s look at these aspects in more detail.

1. The act of discerning when making choices. This week we are supported to make good decisions – making choices about projects, business, art, life directions, partners and even moral choices or decisions – by weighing up the various options using our values and our wise internal compass to help guide us to the best option for us. (Note that the best choice for us may not be the choice approved of or understood by others.)

As we weigh up our choices we will reject those that don’t work for us/our project/our art/etc or that don’t adequately represent our values and personal alignment. Rejection is not a bad thing – it is merely an act of sifting and sorting to come up with the best decision for us.

Understanding this helps us to understand that when we are rejected (or our project, art etc) it is also simply a matter of someone else sifting and sorting for their best fit – no need to take it so personally.

2. Acting on our decisions, even at the risk of rejection. Part of the creative journey, the entrepreneur’s journey, the journey of love, the spiritual journey, the journey of the self is to risk judgement and rejection.

This week we are encouraged to act, to decide, to put ourselves out into the world. Being able to do this leads to an expanded sense of personal freedom and inner peace. We are encouraged to follow our hearts and our inspiration and to worry less about what others may think or how they might perceive us. What other people think of us is none of our business! The one person we need to please and satisfy with our decision-making is ourselves. Making choices to please other people, or worse – to please them at the expense of ourselves and our own dreams or needs, is never a good plan.

As we tune in to our hearts and make better choices for ourselves we will see doors opening for us, and windows into new possibilities and horizons.

Supportive crystals this week?

Nephrite Jade (Greenstone) is a stone that supports heart-centred living and emotional expression in life and in art. Carnelian energises and grounds the physical body and aids all forms of healing and creativity – great for overcoming exhaustion and burnout. Fluorite helps us to be honest, objective and innovative with our creativity. Pearls nurture us, helping us to heal the pain of breaking up and moving on from an idea, situation or relationship. These stones can be worn, held, placed into a work space or popped into your pocket.

Helpful essential oils?

For heart healing and emotional support a drop of pure Rose essential oil directly above your heart is just the thing. For emotional courage and feeling uplifted I love Young Living’s Valor. Apply  to your wrists, neck and over the heart. To get clear about what you need to do and for facilitating good decisions diffuse three drops each of Lemon, Basil and Ylang Ylang. You can find all the oils here.

 

Enjoy the act of making choices this week, knowing that this is how you consciously craft your life!

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

All my love,

Nicole ❤ xx
