The Energies of March– 2018

Don’t you ever let a soul in the world tell you that you can’t be exactly who you are.” 
~  Lady Gaga

Hello, Lovelies :)

March is a month for relationships, commitment to what matters to us, and for being unapologetically ourselves. The more we stay true to ourselves in March the more we will be able to manifest profound and/or quite magical changes!

Cards for the Month:

I’ve chosen two cards for March for you: one from Colette Baron-Reid’s The 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:

“At the center of your being
you have the answer;
you know who you are
and you know what you want.”
~ Lao Tzu

March is a month for rediscovering ourselves and owning who we are without apology. It’s great for examining or creating our plans, goals and dreams, and for exploring our relationships with ourselves and others. Really dive deep this month with your journaling and planning. 

Ask yourself the big questions about how you feel about things, what you believe in and what you stand for. Don’t be surprised to find that your views have shifted since the last time you checked in with yourself. It’s a month of strengthening confidence about our life or business direction, and for feeling ready to share our ideas, gifts or talents in bigger ways.

The second card I’ve chosen is LOTUS FLOWER. 

A flower blooming in the desert proves to the world that adversity, no matter how great, can be overcome.
~ Matshona Dhliwayo

March is a relationship-centred month. Love and friendships can blossom in March, so make sure that you have time for socialising and for spending time with friends, family or your love interest. It’s also a strong month for fertility and creativity, so take that into account in your planning. Anything you want to grow will grow well in March – babies, gardens, projects, hobbies, new ideas. Nurture them and sing them into being.

Finally, March is a month for getting off the fence, committing to what matters to you and stepping back from the things and relationships about which you are indifferent or out of synch. Commit to the things that you want to make work and that you care about – the relationship, the health plan, the writers’ group, the local environment campaign, the business you want to start or need to build on, or whatever else is your thing. If you’re not sure what you want to do use this month to get clarity. You will!

Best crystals this month?

Amazonite and Clear Quartz

Amazonite helps you to stand in your power and be brave in putting yourself and your ideas out into the world.

Clear Quartz amplifies your intuition and your ability to tune in to Universal and Personal Wisdom.

Essential oils to support your journey?

Young Living’s Abundance blend is my choice for March. Containing orange, patchouli, frankincense, clove, ginger, myrhh, cinnamon and spruce it has a rich spicy aroma and I find it very grounding and centering. I love this oil for helping me get into a space of allowing, receiving and flow. If ever I feel out of sorts, unworthy, undeserving or out of alignment Abundance is my go-to oil. Usage: A drop over your heart and on your wrists as a perfume and/or on crown of head, back of neck and behind ears work well. So does diffusing the oil of putting a few drops in your bath water.

Want to make your own blend? Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own but they’ll also make a great combination for diffusing. Orange is uplifting, busts stress and helps us overcome self-doubt. Frankincense elevates our mood and promotes spiritual connection and intuition, Patchouli reduces inflammation and stress in the body and it helps us to feel deserving and open to abundance, Myrhh is a deeply spiritual oil – it’s a resin with a smoky sweet and slightly bitter smell which helps link our left and right brain bringing balance, calm and centering.  (Frankincense and Myrrh are said to be two of the three gifts brought by the three wise men to the baby Jesus, the third gift being gold.) To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser. You can find the oils here.

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

Lots of love, Nicole❤ xoxo

A Week For Romance and Matters Of the Heart – Monday Oracle – 26 February 2018

“Put your heart, mind, and soul into even your smallest acts. This is the secret of success.” ~ Swami Sivananda

Hello, Lovelies!

February energies are about building on the strength and intuitive connection we found for ourselves at the beginning of the year. February brings opportunities for planning, learning and growing in order to bring about positive change. We’ll also step into the energies of March this week – it’s a month for relationships, commitment and being unapologetically ourselves. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of awareness which the oracle card Ace of Hearts brings us.

This week brings romance, and falling in love with opportunities, ideas, places and possibilities.

It also brings healing in many forms – for some it’s an opportunity to move on from old hurts, for others it is justice and an acknowledgement of our truth, for some it’s about reunions and reconnections. It’s a week where we can commit whole-heartedly to an idea, a project or a business. It’s a week for new beginnings, proposals, engagements and recommitments. In short it’s a big heart-centred week of doors closing so that others might open.

The Ace of Hearts reminds us that living from our heart, honouring our feelings, standing up for love and justice, and pouring our whole heart into what matters to us is always the best way to live.

This week make time for love, and for loving life.

Supportive crystals this week?

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. Banded Agate creates a sense of security and courage as you open up to living more fully as yourself. Amazonite (pictured) is fantastic for being brave in putting yourself and your ideas out into the world. It’s a super stone for taking first steps in relationships and for helping you express your feelings. 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?

Young Living’s Joy or Believe essential oil blends, or  a combination (or singly!) of any of Grapefruit, Basil, Geranium and Sandalwood. The Joy blend is fabulous if you are feeling anxious or uncertain, or a bit sad or stuck. It’s reassuring and uplifting; wonderful for gently shifting depression and self-doubt. I often wear it as a perfume. Believe oil is a super stress-buster that boosts feel-good energies and self-esteem. It smells so uplifting and pretty too. It’s my oil of choice in my diffuser this week.

Want to make your own blend? Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own 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 promotes 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.

Monday Oracle – 19 February 2018

“Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will.” 
― Suzy Kassem

 

Hello, Lovelies!

In February we are building on the strength and intuitive connection we found for ourselves at the beginning of the year. February brings opportunities for planning, learning and growing in order to bring about positive change. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of awareness which the oracle card Nine of Swords brings us.

This week’s card speaks to that place within us that is scared, doubtful and filled with feelings of insecurity and unworthiness. Nine of Swords calls us to embrace the challenges and opportunities in our lives.

This week don’t let fear hold you back. Don’t let insecurity prevent you from engaging or putting yourself out there. So much of your fear is from limited thinking, and from being in your head rather than in a place of action.

If you are feeling overwhelmed look for a mentor or coach to guide you. Or try a book, a course, or a group of like-minded people.

Whatever it is that you want to do, someone has done that thing before you. If they found a way you will too. Look at how you can model your thoughts and actions on someone who is already enjoying success in the area that is calling to you.

Most importantly, don’t give up – on yourself, on your dreams, on your future.

The longing in your heart is a sure sign of the direction you need to follow. Make space for those dreams this week, be brave and take action!

Banded Agate (pictured) creates a sense of security and courage as you open up to living more fully as yourself. Amazonite is fantastic for being brave in putting yourself and your ideas out into the world. 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?

I’m loving Young Living’s Clarity and Believe 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 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 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 promotes joy, gratitude and optimism. To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser.

Monday Oracle – 12 February 2018

She decided to free herself, dance into the wind, create a new language. And birds fluttered around her, writing “yes” in the sky.”  
~ Monique Duval

 

Hello, Lovelies!

In February we are building on the strength and intuitive connection we found for ourselves at the beginning of the year. February brings opportunities for planning, learning and growing in order to bring about positive change. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of awareness which the oracle card Sleeping Beauty brings us.

This week’s card has a message of support and encouragement.

Sleeping Beauty is here to reconnect us to the power of our dreams. In dreams all kinds of things can happen. When we are asleep we suspend our disbelief. In the land of dreams anything is possible. It’s a place where our wise self can communicate with us, and so can our guides, angels and loved ones.

This week expect that energy of guidance through dreams while we are asleep, and as ‘waking dreams’ where we are gifted ideas, insights, innovations and inspiration. Trust what comes. Know that we are being shown this for a reason. This could be ideas for life direction, work, relationships, health or creative projects. You might also get answers to problems that have confounded you for the longest time.

It’s a week of deep soul connection and illumination, and of the kinds of insights and ideas that can positively change the direction of our lives. Some of you might feel like you’ve finally woken up after living your life on automatic pilot for much too long.

Sleeping Beauty also reminds you that you could be visited by a creative idea from the past that needs to be dusted off and given life. Know that it is making itself known to you because it is time.

Make your creative work, planning and dreams a priority this week. You’ll be glad you did!

Supportive crystals this week?

Use Orange Calcite (pictured) to tune in to inspiration and to help those creative idea flow. It’s also a wonderful beginner stone for tuning in to the spiritual realms. Banded Agate creates a sense of safety, peace and belonging as you open up to living more fully as yourself. Great if you feel anxious about speaking up or sharing your gifts with the world! 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. Rainbow Moonstone tunes you in to your dreams and subconscious mind, and to metaphysical messages.

 

Helpful essential oils?

Rose essential oil is my pick again for this week. Its sweet floral aroma is uplifting and heart opening. If you can’t find Rose then use Rose Geranium. Use these oils by placing a dab on wrists, neck and over heart as a perfume or diffuse. They are also heavenly in your bathwater.

Want to make your own blend? Sokli gave me this recipe ages ago. She calls it the Lucky Happy Magic Recipe and I find it marvellous for enhancing and supporting creativity. You’ll need Lavender 2 drops, Orange 4 drops, Ylang Ylang 4 drops, Sandalwood 3 drops. This recipe is one of my favourite essential oil blends to put in a diffuser or as a perfume or bath oil. I make up a little bottle of the mix and then I can add it to my bath or take it with me to inhale or wear. Always dilute in a little carrier oil before applying to skin, and remember that citrus oil should not be applied to any skin that will be in sunlight.

I choose to use Young Living essential oils because of their quality and energies. You can find all the oils here.

Why You Need To Be On My March Retreat!

“Your soul knows the geography of your destiny. Your soul alone has the map of your future, therefore you can trust this indirect, oblique side of yourself. If you do, it will take you where you need to go, but more important it will teach you a kindness of rhythm in your journey.” 
John O’Donohue

Have you always wanted to attend one of my residential retreats? This year we are offering only two, and next year we will be running just one – a Soul Sanctuary at the end of 2019 – because we will be conducting a spiritual pilgrimage in place of our regular program.

In March this year, not so far away, we are holding a wonderful retreat in Byron Bay, Australia. This retreat, Awakening to Spirituality, is a retreat designed to help you connect deeply into your own soul energy, to develop a spiritual practice that can guide and restore you, and to know yourself better through meditation, journalling and various metaphysical practices. And it is much more than just a retreat. The pre and post-course support gives you six weeks of mentoring, connection and learning.

We have two just places left. Will one of them be yours?

Awakening to Spirituality is completely suited to beginners, to those of you who have had absolutely no experience at all but who have a yearning to explore your spiritual and psychic side.

But don’t let that deter you if you are further along the spiritual path.

This is also a retreat for you if you want to take your own spiritual practice deeper. If you are wanting to expand your skills, strengthen your existing psychic and intuitive abilities, and stabilise them so that they become a normal and natural part of your everyday life. If you are waiting for your breakthrough to the next level of your ability this retreat is for you. If you don’t have a regular spiritual practice but wish that you did, this retreat will help you to create space in your life for being in that soul space easily and more often.

If you are hoping to attend my August Retreat – Advanced Channelling and Energy Techniques using Sacred Geometry – and you haven’t done any work with me before then this is also an important foundation course to get you ready for that event. (And if you are ready for this please contact Dana now to put your name on the waitlist for information as the course is already nearly full and we may not end up making a public offering on this one!)

Our March retreat will tune you up to the energies of this new energetic era and actively accelerate your personal and spiritual development. During our time together I will be immersing you in a spiritual and energetic world where you will connect with your own gifts, and be given exercises and activities for your personal level of ability, and which are tailored to your specific energetic skillset. There will be time on this retreat for you to seek clarification and guidance with me too, about your spiritual practice, your next steps in life, and your path of service to others.

My retreats are much more than just a learning environment.  They are a safe place for your Soul to evolve.  They are a coming together of like-minded people for sharing and connection, and they are a journey that will accelerate your understanding of and love for yourself and your place in the world.

What Previous Participants Have Said:

‘Words can not express how amazing Nicole Cody retreats are. They really do have to be experienced. This changed my life and I really appreciate the time and effort that Nicole and Dana PA put in. So much wisdom and love surrounds Nicole – I took advantage of the payment plan – so I would highly recommend going along. I made so many lovely friends and had many breakthroughs.’ – Amanda C.

 If anybody is on the fence and wondering if they can actually invest money 💰 in themselves to do this retreat 🌈 I have to tell you what ever it takes if this retreat is calling you do the things you need to to make it happen 🌸 I have attended 3 of Nicole’s courses since I discovered her blog 💫And yes life changing 🦋
I have also met so many wonderful people and you will hear the phrase “finding my tribe” thrown around a lot 🌿
You will never regret going to Beautiful Byron for a life challenging and changing experience 🌷 – Beka L

 I’ll second those sentiments too. I went on a retreat 2 years ago and was so anxious but once I got there and met everyone, I was made to feel really welcome and cherished. Nothing was too much trouble and when I was ” stuck” there was plenty of support from some wonderful people. (Plus the food was awesome) – Mary P

And from my wonderful PA, Dana:

If you have ever wanted to attend a retreat with Nicole but felt you weren’t experienced enough, or that the retreat sounded a bit scary (because channelling and other things we do aren’t for everyone!), then our March “Spiritual Awakening” retreat is perfect for you! It is a very gentle beginners retreat. I cannot put into words how well Nicole, her guides, the food and the environment will nurture and support you.
I also wanted to remind you that we can work out a payment plan for you based on what works for you. Unfortunately our suppliers are putting up their prices, so this is the last time we’ll be able to offer this retreat at this price. Please don’t let money be the reason why you don’t join us. Places are starting to fill, so get in touch before we sell out!
Love and hugs to you all, Dana

Monday Oracle – 5 February 2018

“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” 
Antoine de Saint-ExupéryThe Little Prince

 

Hello, Lovelies!

In February we are building on the strength and intuitive connection we found for ourselves at the beginning of the year. February brings opportunities for planning, learning and growing in order to bring about positive change. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of awareness which the oracle card Seeker of Hearts brings us.

This week we open to the understanding that it’s okay to live from our heart, to come from our truth, and to honour our emotions. The Seeker of Hearts reminds us that when we are brave enough to show our true self and feel our feelings magic begins to happen in our lives. Tell people how you feel. Allow yourself to be moved by art or beauty or kindness. Offer forgiveness or friendship to others. Looking for love? Seeker of Hearts encourages you to put yourself out there and to trust that you can find a new relationship. Let your heart lead the way.

The Seeker of Hearts will also show you where you need to protect your heart or call it back to yourself.

Pour your heart into what you love this week. Don’t be afraid to care deeply, in business or your art or in relationships or anything else. It’s that music of your heart, expressed through your words and actions, that will make you or your work magnetic to the right people and situations.

Supportive crystals this week?

Banded Agate (pictured) creates a sense of safety, peace and belonging as you open up to living more fully as yourself. Great if you feel anxious about speaking up or sharing your gifts with the world! Sunstone helps you to sit in a place of abundance thinking so that you see the blessings and possibilities in life. Rose Quartz opens your heart to love and helps you to express and receive love. Ocean Jasper is a healing stone that helps you to feel at home wherever you are, including feeling at home in yourself. To use these stones simply pop them in your pocket, or wear them somewhere on your body. They are also good to hold in meditation or to place under your pillow before sleep.

 

Helpful essential oils?

Rose essential oil is my pick for this week. Its sweet floral aroma is uplifting and heart opening. To bring romance into your world Geranium and Jasmine are also excellent choices. Apply a dab to wrists, neck and over heart as a perfume or diffuse. They are also heavenly in your bathwater.

Want to make your own blend? Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own for you this week, but they’ll also make a great combination for diffusing. Ylang Ylang restores confidence in ourselves and our decisions and is supportive when we feel anxious or overwhelmed, Rose opens our heart to love and heals old emotional hurts, Orange promotes joy, gratitude and optimism and Geranium is great for stress reduction and emotional balance, and for evoking a sense of peace and goodwill. To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser. You can find the oils here.

The Energies of February – 2018

“Oh, it’s delightful to have ambitions. I’m so glad I have such a lot. And there never seems to be any end to them– that’s the best of it. Just as soon as you attain to one ambition you see another one glittering higher up still. It does make life so interesting.” 
~  L.M. MontgomeryAnne of Green Gables

Hello, Lovelies :)

In February we begin to build on the strength and intuitive connection we found for ourselves at the beginning of the year. We begin to find a clear direction forward. February brings opportunities for planning, learning and growing in order to bring about positive change. 

Cards for the Month:

I’ve chosen two cards for February for you: one from Colette Baron-Reid’s The Enchanted Map and one from Steven Farmer’s Earth Magic 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:

“A mentor is someone who sees more talent and ability within you, than you see in yourself, and helps bring it out of you.”
~ Bob Proctor


February is a month for inviting change, for making long-range plans and big decisions that will bring us closer into alignment with our authentic selves and soul needs.

Create some space this month for working with your Oracle cards and planner, for family or work meetings, and for allowing everyone’s voices to be heard.

This month invites you to find other people to guide you as you plan and instigate change. Maybe you can find a coach or a mentor, or a supportive group to join (emphasis on supportive – no whiny negative groups, because that’s self-defeating, you want a group that feels comfortable, supportive and empowering).

Maybe it’s you with support to offer others. If so, go launch that program or put that offering out into the world.

 

The second card I’ve chosen is CLOUDS. It’s primary message is the importance of dreaming a brighter future for ourselves, and for believing in our possibilities.

Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them.”
~ Albert Einstein

February is a terrific month for all kinds of dreaming and imagining new possibilities for ourselves and our future.

It’s also a great time for learning from history – our own or from the world before our life this time around, and for anything to do with family, especially for connecting with the stories of your elders and ancestors.

If you are an elder in your own family think about how you can share stories and skills with the younger generation. Do you have a family favourite recipe to share, or an important story about a family member or heirloom?

As you connect into this wisdom and guidance you’ll continue to develop clarity and confidence in yourself, who you are, what you believe, and what matters to you.

Don’t forget Earth Wisdom this month. Let nature be a teacher and guide for you too.

Can you spend some time honouring your body with exercise and healthy natural food? Can you work on getting enough rest and downtime? And can you spend some time in nature?

Best crystals this month?

Banded Agate and Sunstone

Banded Agate creates a sense of safety, peace and belonging. It also helps to anchor change.

Sunstone helps us to sit in a place of abundance thinking so that we see the blessings and possibilities in our life.

Essential oils to support your journey?

Young Living’s Clarity and Envision blends are my choices for February. Clarity is a blend that includes peppermint, basil and rosemary. I love this oil for helping me to learn new things, and for focus, problem solving and being open to new ideas. It helps me bust through mental fatigue and stay fresh and engaged with my work. Envision is an oil blend I often use in my workshops and retreats to help my students connect to inner wisdom and intuition. It helps us to see a greater possibility for ourselves. Use Envision for spiritual connection, inspiration and breakthroughs. Dab a drop on your Crown Chakra, back of neck, over your heart, wrists and the soles of your feet, inhale directly or add to your diffuser. 

Want to make your own blend? Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own but they’ll also make a great combination for diffusing. Grapefruit is uplifting, busts stress and helps us overcome self-doubt. Ylang Ylang restores confidence in ourselves and our decisions and is supportive when we feel anxious or overwhelmed, Rosemary improves memory, promotes emotional balance and diffuses stress, and Cardamon helps link our left and right brain, bringing balance and calm.  To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser. You can find the oils here.


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

Monday Oracle – 29 January 2018

 “Inner guidance is heard like soft music in the night by those who have learned to listen.
– Vernon Howard

 

Hello, Lovelies!

January is almost at an end, and already we can feel the beginning of February’s energies kicking in. January eased us into the energies of 2018 with time for resting and recharging and dreaming about the kind of life we want, while February brings opportunities for planning, learning and growing in order to bring about positive change. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of awareness which the oracle card Seeker of Swords brings us.

If the Seeker of Swords has one message for you, it is this: I can learn, I can flourish, I can belong.  We’re out the other side of that tough week of facing up to our problems and issues from our past. Now our focus is on direction, possibility and opportunity/ Get ready for self-acceptance and self-discovery!

This week we are able to see a more positive future for ourselves, and we can finally embrace our talents and individual quirks as blessings in our life.

It’s a week for creative flow, fresh new ideas, and that satisfying feeling of trusting ourselves and our decisions.

It’s also a week for finding teachers, mentors, courses and support to help us heal, grow and thrive.

Seeker of Swords encourages us to become comfortable being completely ourselves, knowing that this is the best way for us to find lasting love and happiness, succeed in business, attract real friends and live a life that is rich and meaningful. This week we’ll also see where we are hiding our true nature, and we’ll be able to identify relationships and situations in our lives that don’t support our true selves. Goodbye to them! Lots of room for change this week as we step into a more relaxed and open way of being in the world.

Supportive crystals this week?

Ametrine is a great stone to help you commit time and action to your dreams. White Howlite helps you get back to a place of balance if you are struggling with depression, anxiety or overwhelmRed 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. Sunstone (pictured) helps you to sit in a place of abundance thinking so that you see the blessings and possibilities in life. To use these stones simply pop them in your pocket, or wear them somewhere on your body. They are also good to hold in meditation or to place under your pillow before sleep.

Helpful essential oils?

This week I’m using Young Living’s Clarity essential oil in my diffuser. Clarity is a blend that includes peppermint, basil and rosemary. I love this oil for helping me to learn new things, and for focus, problem solving and being open to new ideas. It helps me bust through mental fatigue and stay fresh and engaged with my work.

Want to make your own blend? Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own for you this week, but they’ll also make a great combination for diffusing. Grapefruit is uplifting, busts stress and helps us overcome self-doubt. Ylang Ylang restores confidence in ourselves and our decisions and is supportive when we feel anxious or overwhelmed, Rosemary improves memory, promotes emotional balance and diffuses stress, and Cardamon helps link our left and right brain, bringing balance and calm.  To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser.

Monday Oracle – 22 January 2018

 “One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star. – Friedrich Nietzsche

 

Hello, Lovelies!

January is a month for easing ourselves into the energies of 2018, for resting and recharging, for planning and dreaming and for tuning in to what can support us in the year ahead. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of awareness which the oracle card 4 of Hearts brings us.

Hot on the heels of the New Moon in Capricorn, which encouraged and inspired us to look to our future and what we are willing to commit to in order to make those dreams manifest, 4 of Hearts brings the awareness this week that some of our cherished dreams need to be let go, because in our hearts we are not committed to making them happen. We’re not ever going to put in the work required, or we are no longer in synch with this old dream or ideal. Hanging on to the old dream stops us from being able to evolve and grow towards something more suited to our highest good.

4 of Hearts reminds us that when we let go of the old we make room for something new to come our way. It’s okay to grieve broken and lost dreams this week, but once your tears are dry and you’ve felt and acknowledged your emotions expect a new surge of inspiration and direction to find you in the days and weeks ahead.

This week you may also feel exhausted and like you can’t possibly go on – that things will never change, and you will never get the outcome you desire. In the old energy of years past we struggled on our own. In this new 2018 energy of connection and community know that there will be help from outside your own efforts. Friends will turn up. Helpful people will appear. New information will become available. Expect a turnaround, a breakthrough, a renewal of hope this week. And know that for some you, this week is about you becoming that hope and guidance for others!

Supportive crystals this week?

Any double-terminated crystal or cluster of crystals from the quartz family (think clear quartz, smoky, amethyst or citrine) placed in the room where you spend most of your time will amplify your ability to connect to your inner wisdom and to become inspired through new thoughts, imagination and divine guidance.  Selenite (pictured) helps you to be kind to yourself and is fantastic for gently guiding you inwards. 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. Green Chrysoprase opens your heart and helps you find the courage to live the life that calls you.

Helpful essential oils?

This week I’m using Young Living’s Inspiration blend. Inspiration helps me to release negative thoughts and emotions, beat procrastination and enhance my spiritual connection. Its fragrance is grounding and uplifting, and I also find that instills me with a quiet optimism. Dab a drop on your Third Eye, back of neck, over your heart, wrists and the soles of your feet, inhale directly or add to your diffuser. It’s also a gorgeous addition to your bath water.

Want to make your own blend? Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own for you this week, but they’ll also make a great combination for diffusing. Cedarwood is calming, gives a sense of security and helps us overcome self doubt. Ylang Ylang opens our hearts and is supportive when we feel anxious or overwhelmed, Frankincense calms and connects us, promoting emotional balance and Bergamot brings 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.

Monday Oracle – 15 January 2018

 “Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind. – Henry James

 

Hello, Lovelies!

January is a month for easing ourselves into the energies of 2018, for resting and recharging, for planning and dreaming and for tuning in to what can support us in the year ahead.

Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of awareness which the oracle card Little Red Cap brings us.

This week (from January 17) the energies of 2018 finally kick in. Little Red Cap reminds us that we get to choose where we put our focus this year, and that this is a great week for all forms of planning and committing to your goals and dreams.

Did you start this new year full of hope and ready for change, and then it all started to come unstuck in the past few days? As 2017 comes to an end we are getting ripples of old patterns of thought and behaviour coming up for us to recognise so that we can choose differently as we step into 2018.

If you’ve started a new diet for 2018 and already sabotaged it, found yourself back in old patterns of distressing behaviour with family members, negative self-talk or limiting thinking stop and take a deep breath. Recognise old patterns and then choose differently! Forgive yourself and move on without dwelling on mistakes and failures. Think about what it is that you want this year. Think about what you want to create or manifest or share. Choose where to put your focus – choose what lights you up or feels good to you. Put your attention on what you want, rather than on what you don’t want. Deal with issues as they arise but don’t make problems your main priority. Face yourself into the sunshine, hold onto the vision for your journey and keep moving forward. Treat yourself kindly, and treat others with that same kindness too.

Let me give you an example. Imagine you want to make a road trip, but your car has a flat tyre (yes, this is a metaphor for life!).

The old way (pre 2012) was to dwell endlessly on the need to ‘fix yourself’, finding more and more to work on as the first ‘problem’ became healed. We wouldn’t just change the tyre, we’d think about why we created the flat tyre, and what else in our past or our thoughts could have contributed to the flat tyre. We’d also look at all of the flat tyres we’d ever had before. Then we’d look at everything else that was possibly wrong and might need fixing. It was an endless cycle of ‘self-improvement’, and the road trip may well have been entirely forgotten as we worked earnestly on our ‘broken self’.

The new way (this new post-2012 era) is to think about your journey, effect any repairs quickly or get help to do so, and then get on your way. The emphasis is on where you want to go! What do you want to experience, create, manifest or share on this road trip of yours? It’s about the journey, not about the flat tyres. Little Red Cap invites you to hold a spirit of adventure and possibility in your heart this week as you look to your year ahead.

Supportive crystals this week?

Selenite helps you to be kind to yourself. It will also connect you into your guides, angels and psychic ability. Fantastic for gently guiding you inwards. 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 clear boundaries. Lapis Lazuli is a super stone for boldly moving in new directions with insight and wisdom. If you are stressed or anxious about the past or about habits or thoughts that keep you stuck in the past Black Tourmaline is the best stone for you this week.

 

Helpful essential oils?

I’m still loving Young Living’s Envision this week. It’s an oil blend I often use in my workshops and retreats to help my students connect to inner wisdom and intuition. It helps us to see a greater possibility for ourselves. Use Envision for spiritual connection, inspiration and breakthroughs. Dab a drop on your Crown Chakra, back of neck, over your heart, wrists and the soles of your feet, inhale directly or add to your diffuser. 

Want to make your own blend? Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own for you this week, but they’ll also make a delicious combination for diffusing. Vetiver will calm and ground us, promoting emotional balance, Lavender keeps us in flow and relaxed, Ylang Ylang opens our hearts and is supportive when we feel anxious or overwhelmed, and Bergamot brings 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.
