Progress, Connection and Positive Outcomes – Monday Oracle 15 October 2018

“When the path ignites a soul,
there’s no remaining in place.
The foot touches ground,
but not for long.

~  Hakim Sanai

 

Hello, Lovelies!

October brings our focus back to our home environment, our heart-space and our soul’s journey. We’ll feel a need to nest, to clean and beautify the spaces where we spend most of our time (this could be your body, home, work or even your car!) and to have to hand the things we need to make our time in these spaces comfortable and productive. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card The Yellow Brick Road brings us.

The Yellow Brick Road is a positive and reassuring card for us this week. It indicates that obstacles are falling away and the path in front of us will become clear. It’s a time for teamwork, co-operation and collaboration. Expect positive outcomes, helpful energies and synchronicities. Been trying to solve a problem or make a decision? This week the energies are lining up to support you in choosing well or having that moment of divine inspiration that shows your best direction forward.

We’re also reminded that friendship is what supports us during times of challenge. If you are feeling alone reach out to others. If you are feeling strong connect into family and friends to check on how they are. If life is great for you, then celebrate! You never need a reason. Being with people whose company you enjoy is good medicine right now. Want to start a creative project? The Yellow Brick Road encourages you to stop thinking and start doing. Little steps, repeated often, will get you to where you want to go.

Supportive crystals this week?

Bronzite promotes inner harmony, reduces worry and allows you to feel grounded, calm and safe.  Angelite nurtures your soul, gifting you expansive connection and deep emotional nourishment. A stone for revelations and insights about what is good for you. Citrine (pictured) delivers inspiration and motivation and helps you open yourself to feelings of worthiness and possibility. Unakite opens your heart to love and draws love, friendship and helpful people to you. It helps you to overcome feelings of isolation or loneliness.

Helpful essential oils?

Lemon essential oil brings clarity, focus and uplift this week, and is a great oil to diffuse. It promotes a positive mood and helps to manage depression, anxiety and mental fatigue. If you’re super-stressed add a few drops of Lavender, which promotes calm and relaxation. For spiritual connection and Higher Purpose add a little Ylang Ylang too.

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

 

Upcoming Events

If you’re looking for some extra support for your spiritual and creative flow come check out my upcoming Pop-Up ShopChannelling Night and One Day Workshops in Brisbane 9-11 November. I’ll be teaching half-day workshops about fairies and how to create your own portable Fairy Garden, as well as basic sacred geometry and Crystal Gridding Skills to support you for 2019. My one-day Mystical Manifesting Workshop utilises all of the rituals I use to close out one year and herald in the new one. I will guide you on a journey to open you up to your highest potential and clearest direction for 2019 (and I am so excited about this workshop I could spontaneously break out into a happy dance!). No matter what level you’re at I’ll have something for you on my program. More details 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, ‘The Yellow Brick Road’, 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.

Energies of October – 2018

“The heart has its reasons which reason knows not.”
~  Blaise Pascal

Hello, Lovelies :)

October  brings  our  focus  back  to  our  home  environment,  our  heart-space  and  our  soul’s  journey.  We’ll  feel  a  need  to  nest,  to  clean  and  beautify  the  spaces  where  we  spend  most  of  our  time  (this  could  be  your  body,  home,  work  or  even  your  car!)  and  to  have  to  hand  the  things  we  need  to  make  our  time  in  these  spaces  comfortable  and  productive.

 It  will  also  be  important  that  these  spaces  reflect  who  we  are,  and  who  we  are  becoming.

Cards for the Month:

I’ve chosen two cards for October for you: one from Colette Baron-Reid’s Enchanted Map and one from Steven Farmer’s Earth Magic Oracle. Please note I don’t use these cards in a conventional way, but rather as a stimulus for channeled information.

Here is what I have received from each card:

“When you want to hurry something, that means you no longer care about it and want to get on to other things. I just want to get at it slowly, but carefully and thoroughly, with the same attitude I remember was present just before I found that sheared pin. It was that attitude that found it, nothing else.”

~  Robert M. Pirsig

It’s  a  time  for  inviting  people  into  our  heart-spaces,  and  for  deepening  our  soulful  relationship  and  connections.  This  could  be  candlelit  dinners  with  a  romantic  partner  where  you  talk  about  your  hopes  and  dreams,  it  could  be  time  spent  planning  an  important  trip  or  a  life  goal,  or  even  a  backyard  picnic  with  friends  reminiscing  about  the  good  old  days  and  reaffirming  your  connections  and  shared  experiences  over  time.

Use  a  little  time  this  month  for  reflection.  Think  about  what  makes  you  happy  and  what  fills  you  up.  Find  ways  to  get  more  of  that  into  your  life.

The second card I’ve chosen is Gaia. 

“Nourishing yourself in a way that helps you blossom in the direction you want to go is attainable, and you are worth the effort.” 
~Deborah Day

No  matter  what  we  do  this  month  it  needs  to  be  in  alignment  with  our  soul  energy  and  truth.  Too  tired  for  connection?  Then  say  no  and  have  an  early  night  all  to  yourself.  Work  doesn’t  feel  right?  Tune  in  and  see  if  it’s  still  for  your  highest  good  or  if  it’s  time  for  a  change.  In  every  instance,  no  matter  what  you  are  doing,  take  a  moment  and  breathe  deeply  to  centre  yourself,  close  your  eyes  and  then  tune  in  to  your  body  –  your  energy  levels,  your  emotions  and  your  intuition.  Let  that  be  your  guide  this  month  and  always  as  we  move  forward  in  this  new  era.  It’s  time  to  be  more  aligned  with  yourself,  your  values  and  your  needs.

Best crystals this month?

Bronzite and Angelite

Bronzite promotes inner harmony, reduces worry and allows you to feel grounded, calm and safe. 

Angelite nurtures your soul, gifting you expansive connection and deep emotional
nourishment. A stone for revelations and insights about what is good for you.

Essential oils to support your journey?

Young Living’s Joy essential oil blend, or Orange and Lavender essential oils are my picks for October. 

Joy opens our hearts and tunes us in to our own inner wisdom and is uplifting, comforting and empowering. Dab a drop of Joy on your Crown Chakra, back of neck, over heart, on wrists and the soles of your feet, inhale directly or add to your diffuser. 

Orange essential oil helps us to see the possibilities for ourselves and our life and is reaffirming, uplifting and happy-making! It’s also one of the best anti-depression, anti-anxiety and anti-burnout oils I know! Use Orange in your diffuser or add a few drops to your bath. To bring a sense of tranquillity, optimism and safety to your home or workplace add equal drops of Orange and Lavender essential oils to your diffuser or your bath.

You can find the oils here.

Wishing you a love-filled, satisfying and wonder-full October.

Teacup Oracle – For Life Guidance

 

Who would then deny that when I am sipping tea in my tearoom I am swallowing the whole universe with it and that this very moment of my lifting the bowl to my lips is eternity itself transcending time and space?
~ D.T. Suzuki

 

Will you join me for a cup of tea and a little magic?

Every so often I like to create 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’m offering a cup of tea to provide you with the wisdom, guidance and support you might need right now.

Instructions for using today’s post

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

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

Love and Light,

Nicole ♥ xx

♥ Your Teacup’s Message ♥

Each magical teacup has a message for you. I have also selected a crystal to best support the message and energies of your teacup.  You could wear or hold this crystal, pop it in your pocket, under your pillow or beside your bed. (If you’d like to know more about working with crystals click here) 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. Violets Teacup You’re being so strongly supported by loved ones who’ve crossed over, and by your Guides and the Angelic Realms. Call on them for help and guidance, and know that you are deeply loved, even as you feel so alone. They have a message for you to let you know that everything, ultimately will be okay, and they are sending you strength, grace and love.  Best Crystal – AMETHYST   Power Word – SUPPORT  Magical Healing Environment – Quiet time on your own to fill yourself up with nurture, to give yourself time to think and plan, and to learn from all of these lessons in your life.  It’s breakthrough time. You’re almost there!

2.  Blossoms and Birds Teacup It’s a time of accelerated progress right now, and a wonderful time for both expanding and sharing your knowledge. Trust your abilities, and take small consistent steps towards your goals. Keep company with others from your tribe, and if you have no tribe, seek out like-minded people who can support you, believe in you and help you grow.  Best Crystal – LABRADORITE  ♥ Power Word – KNOWLEDGE ♥ Magical Healing Environment – Places that allow you to develop your craft, your wisdom and your skill. This could be courses, seminars and conferences, books, teachers and mentors, journalling, dreaming and goal setting, or a room or studio where you work on your projects or study. It can also be you stepping up to be the mentor and teacher, and you putting your gifts out into the world. Embrace possibility!

3.  Everything Golden Teacup  A time of turning corners, of new beginnings, fresh starts and remaking yourself and your life. You are being encouraged to actively create the life of your dreams. It’s your life, and you are worthy of every good thing, so step up and claim it. Situations are easing, there is support at ever turn, and you’re moving back into flow and abundance.  Best Crystal – CITRINE   Power Word – RENEWAL ♥ Magical Healing Environment – Anywhere that supports your growing sense of self-worth. Look to positive friendships and relationships that make you feel good about yourself, to clothes and hair that allow you to reclaim your confidence, to trusted advisors and teachers who can support you in making all of these much-needed changes. Take yourself on outings to places and events that inspire and uplift you. Dream yourself a new life, starting today!

4. Very Deco Teacup  This is a time on your life where you can finally begin to see, with great clarity, both the truth of your current situation, and the best way forward. A time of inspiration, vision and sound decision-making. A time of great personal power, and of establishing sovereignty in your own life – a place from which all good things will flow.  Best Crystal – CLEAR QUARTZ   Power Word – CLARITY  Magical Healing Environment – Time for planning your life, creating a vision board, or writing in your journal. This is a fabulous time for you to truly work out how you feel, and what actions and decisions need to be made to make your life more authentic and fulfilling. You’ll surprise yourself with how easily you step into your own power now!

5.  Wonderland Teacups Friendship and helpful people is the theme of this delightful teacup. What you need most right now is good company – the company of a friend or lover, of family or your favourite pets, of new friends and old. Of like-minded people who can share your journey. And it’s also letting you know that so many of the things you enjoyed in childhood are still available to support you now, and to enrich your life.  Best Crystal – ROSE QUARTZ  ♥ Power Word – FRIENDS  Magical Healing Environment – Time spent connecting with friends Catch up with old friends you haven’t seen for the longest time.

Let your heart spend time on friendship, laughter, shared problems and shared joy. Love, laugh, live!

6. Skull and Roses Teacup  The message of this teacup is self-expression and self-care.

Plan adventures, and then go! Start something new. Get things finished – there are also powerful energies for completion here.  Best Crystal – GARNET  Power Word – INSPIRED  ♥ Magical Healing Environment – People and places that stimulate you  Travel, go to new places, even if it is just a coffee shop or restaurant.

Pattern-breaking, Pleasure and Balance – Monday Oracle 24 September 2018

“There are patterns which emerge in one’s life, circling and returning anew, an endless variation of a theme.
~ Jacqueline Carey

 

Hello, Lovelies!

September is a month for adventuring and travel. It’s a month for exploring new lands, or undiscovered parts of ourselves. Routine and the usual choices will hold no interest for us. We will long for life to surprise us, and we’ll feel compelled to try new things. We will be less held back with worry about what other people think of us. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card Alice in Wonderland brings us.

Alice in Wonderland asks us to look at the patterns in our lives. When we do the same thing over and over in the same way we cannot expect to get a different result. This week we are encouraged to break patterns where our thoughts, actions and behaviours no longer serve us. We are also encouraged to create new patterns that are healthy and supportive. Remember that you can always seek help for this if you know you need to change but you don’t know how to do that on your own.

What can you do to create more balance and sustainability in your work, your health, your home life and relationships this week?

This week it’s easier for us to view our lives from a higher perspective – to be less judgemental of ourselves and others and more able to see potential solutions and opportunities for breakthroughs.

Alice in Wonderland also brings gifts of mindful pleasure, of owning what makes us happy and taking responsibility for the outcomes of our lives.

What can you do to support yourself well this week, to nourish your soul and to give you emotional satisfaction?

Supportive crystals this week?

Pyrite promotes confidence, good decision-making, courage and the ability to embrace your potential. Tree Agate heightens your intuition, connecting you to synchronicity, soul wisdom, guides and universal energy. It will help you to work out your priorities and where to best spend your precious energy. Moonstone (pictured) will help you to feel deserving of pleasure and happiness in your life and to know what will nourish you emotionally. Snowflake Obsidian is a wonderful stone for any form of pattern-breaking.

Helpful essential oils?

Last week’s oils will work beautifully for you this week too!  You need essential oils that can help you bring your mind to a place of clarity, balance, calm and productivity. I’ve added in an extra one this week – Lemongrass for being open to change and for pattern-breaking. The following oils can be diffused or inhaled on their own but also blend beautifully together:

  • Rosemary
  • Lemon
  • Lavender
  • Peppermint
  • Cypress
  • Eucalyptus
  • Lemongrass

Need an extra boost of encouragement? Try Young Living’s Believe essential oil blend. It’s fabulous in your diffuser while you work, or as a quick pick-me-up. Believe is uplifting and promotes confidence, spiritual connection, clarity and belief in ourselves. It also helps us to let go of fear, doubt and old emotional pain and hurt.  I often use this oil when I am creating, writing or journalling, or working with cards for myself. 

 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 Power of Focus – Monday Oracle 17 September 2018

“If you want to be happy, do not dwell in the past, do not worry about the future, focus on living fully in the present.
~  Roy T. Bennett

 

Hello, Lovelies!

September is a month for adventuring and travel. It’s a month for exploring new lands, or undiscovered parts of ourselves. Routine and the usual choices will hold no interest for us. We will long for life to surprise us, and we’ll feel compelled to try new things. We will be less held back with worry about what other people think of us. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card Ace of Swords brings us.

Ace of Swords reminds us of the power of focus. This week it is important to bring that focus to your life. Don’t scatter your energy by trying to do too many things at once, by being all things to all people and by multi-tasking.

There is something powerful in bringing your attention to the moment – to living fully in the presence of a person, a task, an idea. Your focus becomes a sacred act. It can lead to the creation of new things. It can invoke patterns of completion. It heightens flow of inspiration and draws forth synchronicities and magic.

What can you bring your focus to this week? What most needs your attention? How can you create a concerted effort to get something started or completed? This week also supports major decision making and all forms of writing, legal work and signing of important documents.

Supportive crystals this week?

Pyrite promotes confidence, good decision-making, courage and the ability to embrace your potential. Tree Agate heightens your intuition, connecting you to synchronicity, soul wisdom, guides and universal energy. It will help you to work out your priorities and where to best spend your precious energy. Red Jasper will keep you grounded as the ideas flow, and gift you stamina and resilience if you end up burning the candle at both ends. Fluorite (pictured below) 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?

This week you need essential oils that can help you bring your mind to a place of clarity, calm and productivity. The following oils can be diffused or inhaled on their own but also blend beautifully together:

A Week For Love, Magic and Miracles – Monday Oracle 10 September 2018

“All of us need to be in touch with a mysterious, tantalizing source of inspiration that teases our sense of wonder and goads us on to life’s next adventure.
~  Rob Brezsny

 

Hello, Lovelies!

September is a month for adventuring and travel. It’s a month for exploring new lands, or undiscovered parts of ourselves. Routine and the usual choices will hold no interest for us. We will long for life to surprise us, and we’ll feel compelled to try new things. We will be less held back with worry about what other people think of us too (Isn’t that a relief!). Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card Six of Hearts brings us.

When we lift each other up, when we help each other, we all rise. That’s the essence of the magic Six of Hearts brings us. This week’s energies are all about co-operation, collaboration, and helping each other to experience win-win situations. There is so much opportunity around us right now to move out of that space of being stuck in the past or stuck in regret so that we can move forward to new opportunities.

It’s a great week to join a mentoring group or start one, to find a coach or mentor or become one, and to connect into communities, tribes, social groups or any other kind of group that holds your interests and values, and where you can learn, grow and contribute!

When we change ourselves, and our own vibration rises, we positively influence everyone and everything around us. Change truly can start with ourselves. We are never powerless – no matter how difficult our lives may seem we have control over our thoughts, emotions and actions. Work with your own mental attitude this week, knowing that no matter what is happening in your life you still have the capacity to choose your actions and reactions.

Six of Hearts reminds us that we can call on Angels, Guides, Ancestors and God to help us in our times of trouble or when we need inspiration and encouragement. We are never alone, and miracles happen every day.

This is also a week for love, romance and deep soul connection. No matter what your situation, do your best to come from love in everything you do this week. Expect magic. Expect blessings. Ask for miracles and be open to receiving them.

Supportive crystals this week?

Pyrite promotes confidence, good decision-making, courage and the ability to embrace your potential. Tree Agate heightens your intuition, connecting you to synchronicity, soul wisdom, guides and universal energy. It promotes inner peace and emotional healing. Smoky Quartz is fantastic for making decisions, new ideas and directions, planning and busting through old limits. Pearls (pictured) nurture you, helping you to believe that you are worthy of love and healing your heart of old hurts. Each of these stones can be worn, held, placed into a work space or popped into your pocket. 

Helpful essential oils?

Lavender is a beautiful oil this week for enhancing communication, deepening trust in relationships and helping you to feel settled and safe.

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. (Here’s a simple three-minute meditation you can do using lavender or any of your favourite essential oils – click here)

Need an extra boost of encouragement? Try Young Living’s Believe essential oil blend. It’s fabulous in your diffuser while you work, or as a quick pick-me-up with a three-minute meditation. Believe is uplifting and promotes confidence, spiritual connection, clarity and belief in ourselves. It also helps us to let go of fear, doubt and old emotional pain and hurt.  I often use this oil when I am creating, writing or journalling, or working with cards for myself.

A Week for Overcoming Fears – Monday Oracle 3 September 2018

“Never let hard lessons harden your heart; the hard lessons of life are meant to make you better, not bitter.
~   Roy T. Bennett

 

Hello, Lovelies!

September is a month for adventuring and travel. It’s a month for exploring new lands, or undiscovered parts of ourselves. Routine and the usual choices will hold no interest for us. We will long for life to surprise us, and we’ll feel compelled to try new things. We will be less held back with worry about what other people think of us. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card Ten of Swords brings us.

Ten of Swords is a supremely reassuring card. We don’t need to do everything on our own. Instead we are encouraged to reach out for help, to consult a mentor or expert, to gather together to overcome an obstacle, bring about change or defeat a foe. Check your boundaries too. Are you saying yes when you wanted to say no? Are you protecting what matters, getting enough sleep and looking after yourself and your own needs? Running on empty? Don’t be afraid to step back or step away in order to refill your tank.

This week also holds a powerful energy for overcoming our fears. What have you been procrastinating about, or fearful of acting upon? Let this week be the week where you turn things around by thinking and acting in new ways. A great week for decisions and new directions.

Supportive crystals this week?

Pyrite promotes confidence, good decision-making, courage and the ability to embrace your potential. Tree Agate heightens your intuition, connecting you to synchronicity, soul wisdom, guides and universal energy. It promotes inner peace and emotional healing. Snowflake Obsidian will help to remove old negative self-talk and replace it with optimismRainbow Moonstone (pictured)  tunes you in to your dreams and subconscious mind, and to metaphysical messages.

Helpful essential oils?

I’m loving Young Living’s Clarity and Joy blends this week. 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 Joy to help you move back to a place of contentment, confidence and happiness. It’s great to inhale directly, diffuse or add a drop to Heart Chakra, throat and inner wrists like perfume. A few drops added to your bath make for magical self-care.

If you want to use a single oil, choose any of these for their uplifting and confidence inducing qualities – Bergamot, Grapefruit, Ylang Ylang, Orange or Geranium.

You can find the oils here.

Energies of September – 2018

“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” 
~  Eleanor Roosevelt

Hello, Lovelies :)

September is a month for adventuring and travel. It’s a month for exploring new lands, or undiscovered parts of ourselves. Routine and the usual choices will hold no interest for us. We will long for life to surprise us, and we’ll feel compelled to try new things. We will be less held back with worry about what other people think of us. 

Cards for the Month:

I’ve chosen two cards for September for you: one from Colette Baron-Reid’s Enchanted Map and one from Steven Farmer’s Earth Magic Oracle. Please note I don’t use these cards in a conventional way, but rather as a stimulus for channeled information.

Here is what I have received from each card:

“In the distant golden sunset sky, a magnificent rainbow is opening wings to fly.”

~  Debasish Mridha

In September we see that having a solid foundation of self-awareness gives us wings to fly. It’s a month of gaining perspective and learning lessons without becoming embittered. In fact, as we gain perspective we become more upbeat. We see how far we have come, we recognise our resilience and we regard ourselves with a new respect. As we are uplifted we are more easily able to uplift others. Suddenly it seems practical to choose a future for ourselves that is bigger and more incredible than anything we’d dared to dream before. We start saying ‘Why not?’ instead of ‘Why?’ and we mean it as an invitation to the Universe to make our dreams come true.

September energies dare us to live boldly and to ask more of life. There is a spirit of fun about this month. We’re invited to take ourselves and our problems a little less seriously. It’s easier to push past old limitations and to launch ourselves out into the world.

We’re empowered to make decisions and to instigate great change this month.

We feel comfortable to be in a position of authority in our own lives, and our intuition shows us solutions to problems that have puzzled us for months or even years.

Suddenly the answers are obvious and the timing is right. So, stay open. Trust! Change in on the way.

The second card I’ve chosen is Milky Way.

“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.”
~Maya Angelou

September is also a month of karmic, ancestral and past-life connections and revelations. Expect strange but meaningful dreams, weird but helpful insights into family and major relationship dynamics and out-of-the-box ideas that provide opportunities, blessings and unexpected possibilities.

Best crystals this month?

Pyrite and Tree Agate

Pyrite promotes confidence, good decision-making, courage and the ability to embrace your potential.

Tree Agate heightens your intuition, connecting you to synchronicity, soul wisdom, guides and universal energy. It promotes inner peace and emotional healing.

Essential oils to support your journey?

September suits oils that promote joy, confidence and happiness. Some of my favourite single oils for that include Bergamot, Grapefruit, Ylang Ylang, Orange and Geranium.

I’m loving Young Living’s Clarity and Joy blends for September too. 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 Joy to help you move back to a place of contentment, confidence and happiness. It’s great to inhale directly, diffuse or add a drop to Heart Chakra, throat and inner wrists like perfume. A few drops added to your bath make for magical self-care.

You can find the oils here.

Wishing you a love-filled, satisfying and wonder-full September.

Lots of love, Nicole❤ xoxo

Innovation, Inspiration and Creativity! – Monday Oracle 20 August 2018

“You are the storyteller of your own life, and you can create your own legend, or not.
~  Isabel Allende

 

Hello, Lovelies!

August is here, bringing a delicious basket of delights. It’s a month for creativity in all forms and for getting back into the flow of life again. You’ll find a lift in your mood and a clear road ahead so get ready to make the most of the opportunities all around you. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card  Nine of Crystals brings us.

Nine of Crystals is about being the storyteller of your own life. It is up to you to be the author – to write your life the way you want to live it. It’s about stepping into consciousness and understanding your role as a co-creator in your life. It’s a time of heightened creativity and of positive opportunities, gifts and freeing up of flow and abundance.

Don’t panic if the Universe has alreday got the wheel in motion by ending something in your life or turning everything on its head – your outcomes will end up being positive as you are repositioned to somewhere that suits you better and allows greater flow and growth.

This week you’ll find the strength to step away from people and situations that don’t work for you, or to plan your escape at a time that suits your needs. It’s a week well suited to applying for new positions, for asking someone new out on a date and for anything where you are trying new things or stepping outside your comfort zone.

Nine of Crystals encourages you to inspire, encourage and uplift others this week by sharing information and kind words and showing your support. Expect generosity, kindness and goodwill to flow back to you too.

Creative energies are at an all-time high during August so carve out some time to work on projects that are meaningful to you, or sign up for some classes to hone your talents or learn new skills. It’s also a week to find some quiet time and moments that fill body and soul with love and nurture.

Supportive crystals this week?

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. Carnelian dispels doubt and negativity, strengthening self-esteem, confidence and creativity. Sunstone helps you to sit in a place of abundance thinking so that you see the blessings and possibilities in life and to believe in your right to a better future.  Clear Quartz (pictured) will help you to grow into your possibilities, to create a clear vision for your life, and to connect deeply to your intuitive wisdom and soul guidance.

Helpful essential oils?

I’m loving Geranium this week. Geranium is such an underestimated essential oil. With its sweet floral scent it’s 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. (Here’s a simple three-minute meditation you can do using geranium or any of your favourite essential oils – click here)

Need an extra boost of encouragement? Try Young Living’s Believe essential oil blend. It’s fabulous in your diffuser while you work, or as a quick pick-me-up with a three-minute meditation. Believe is uplifting and promotes confidence, spiritual connection, clarity and belief in ourselves. It also helps us to let go of fear, doubt and old emotional pain and hurt.  I often use this oil when I am creating, writing or journalling, or working with cards for myself. 

 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

PS: Monday’s oracle card, Nine 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.
