Leading by Example – A Lesson In Vulnerability

 “Vulnerability is the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, empathy, and creativity. It is the source of hope, empathy, accountability, and authenticity. If we want greater clarity in our purpose or deeper and more meaningful spiritual lives, vulnerability is the path.” 
Brené Brown

 

I’m running a retreat right now. It’s something I love to do – one of my greatest joys is helping others to discover their path, to connect to their intuition and soul wisdom and to become skilled at energy work and using their psychic gifts.

My courses are a mix of lectures, philosophy, channelling and practical activities. And I always demonstrate things I ask my students to do for themselves. So when it comes to teaching how to do personal journey-work I use myself as the example.

Yesterday we worked on connecting in to our Oversoul and asking about our life direction, what will make us happy, what gifts we have come here to share and what our legacy might be.

Which is how I came to be sitting on the carpet in front of my students, my oracle cards spread in front of me as I chose cards and then spoke aloud the very private messages that these cards evoked. This was not staged. I pulled cards and did this exercise that was meant to be done privately in the same way I would have done it if I had been working alone at home.

Every card became harder for me to read. My life was on the floor in front of me, and the messages were profound and excruciatingly personal. But I was committed to doing the exercise from start to finish to teach my students clearly what I was asking them to do for themselves.

By the last card I was in tears, and my voice had a definite waver. It was hard to share such an intimate journey when I did not know in advance what might be revealed with each turn of a card. It was a big reading. There’s nothing like laying your soul bare in front of a crowd to make you really feel your vulnerability.

But I am glad I did. It helped my students to see not just my process, but the power of being brave enough to go deeper with your self-exploration, and of owning that journey.

So my question to you today is this: Who can you help by laying bare your process, by sharing your vulnerability, by allowing yourself to be seen uncensored, raw and real?

Sending much love your way, Nicole ❤ xx

Soul Awakening Activities for The New Moon Partial Eclipse in Leo

“If you chase anything in life chase the things that get you excited about living. Chase the things that give you hope, happiness and a glimpse of a better life. Chase the things that make you want to be a better person. Chase the things that inspire you to think, create and live joyfully. Chase the things that reinforce in your soul that you can make a difference. Chase the things that make you want to transform your heart from selfish to selfless. When you chase that kind of storm you are chasing rainbows.” 
Shannon L. Alder

 

I’m on retreat right now, here in beautiful Byron Bay with my Accelerated Channelling and Sacred Geometry group. I always time my retreats so that the participants will be supported by the surrounding astrological energies, and this retreat is spectacular for personal transformation and psychic connection.

Would you like to learn how you can harness these same energies to progress your spiritual path at home?

We’ll be working with the energies of this New Moon and the Partial Solar Eclipse today, and I thought you might like to use this time to go deeper with your own spiritual work.

The partial Solar Eclipse today (Saturday) boosts the energies of the New Moon in Leo, and heralds new beginnings and major shifts for us, both personally and spiritually. It coincides with the yearly period known as the Lion’s Gate – a portal which opens on the 8th of August every year – an 8:8 event – and which continues until August 12. During the Lion’s Gate portal it is possible to greatly raise your own vibration, and elevate the consciousness of humanity.

It’s a great time to get clarity around your life direction, and for finding answers to questions and problems that have kept you stuck up until now. This eclipse also falls on an 11 day on an 11 year (2018 adds up to 11) which creates what is known as an 11:11 Gateway. This is a time where many will receive a spiritual calling, or where events will come together to help you to achieve profound emotional healing.

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

Who Am I?

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

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

Using Cards for Clarification:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

It’s also a time of heightened intuition, strong inner wisdom and of fortuitous psychic conditions. I’m leading a group of students into our Accelerated Channelling and Sacred Geometry Retreat this Friday, well supported by this week’s energies. It’s a great time for you to connect too!

Supportive crystals this week?

Ruby Zoisite (pictured) 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. Apophyllite connects you to the flow of Universal wisdom and dispels doubt and fear. It also amplifies your own intuitive ability. Celestite connects you to the Angelic realms for their guidance and protection and allows for easier connection during meditation.

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, creativity 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.

All my love,

Nicole ❤ xx

PS: Monday’s oracle card, ‘Guardian of Hearts’, 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 August – 2018

“Without leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all is a form of planning.” 
~ Gloria Steinem

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.

Cards for the Month:

I’ve chosen two cards for August 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:

“You are essentially who you create yourself to be and all that occurs in your life is the result of your own making.”
~  Stephen Richards

Could there be a bigger month for creative energies in 2018? I don’t think so! In August
we step into a virtual river of inspiration and ideas. Opportunities and synchronicities
appear out of thin air. Stuckness dissolves and we are able to take huge leaps forward
with ease and grace.

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.

 

The second card I’ve chosen is Spring Equinox. 

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

It’s a wonderful month for taking lessons in anything to do with the arts, languages or
practical creativity – such as cooking or pottery.

We’ll find talents we weren’t even aware of and our intuition will guide us towards satisfying new hobbies and interests.

For some people they will find the creative, social or business idea that will be their
legacy. For others it will be time to step into the role of wizard, teacher or mentor within
their community, or to create a community where none exists.

It’s a month for creativity, spirituality, mysticism, shamanism, profound thinking and
revelation, gifted and channelled wisdom and insights and all kinds of deeper psychic
connection and inner journeying work.

Best crystals this month?

Carnelian and Ruby Zoisite

Carnelian improves physical energy, detoxifies the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies, and helps to boost and rebalance hormones and digestion. It also dispels self-doubt and negativity, strengthening self-esteem, confidence and creativity.

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.

Essential oils to support your journey?

Young Living’s Believe blend is my choice for August. Containing Ylang-Ylang, Idaho Blasalm Fir, Frankincense, Geranium, Idaho Blue Spruce, Coriander, and Bergamot it has a fresh, uplifting aroma and I find it very grounding and centering. I love this oil for helping me get into a space of self-belief, empowerment and flow. And gee it gets the creative juices flowing! When I am planning my life, visualising my future or working on a project that is important to me Believe 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. It’s instantly grounding and connecting, and it brings a sense of peace, certainty and confidence.

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. Bergamot is uplifting, busts stress and helps us overcome self-doubt. Frankincense elevates our mood and promotes spiritual connection and intuition, Ylang-Ylang opens our hearts and minds,  and it helps us to feel deserving and open to abundance, Spruce is a deeply spiritual oil – holding the wisdom of the forest it links our lefts and right brain bringing balance, calm and centering.  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 August.

Lots of love, Nicole❤ xoxo

The Power of Your Dreams – Monday Oracle 30 July 2018

“Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.” 
Rumi

 

Hello, Lovelies!

July’s energies have been so heart-full and supportive of love and togetherness. In these final few days of this month’s energies make sure you find time for the people and things you love. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card Aladdin and the Magic Lamp brings us.

This week Aladdin and the Magic Lamp remind us of the power of our dreams. And a dream is never more important than when we are in a hard place, a dark place, a place from which the attainment of that dream seems impossible.

Rise up this week. We are being offered hope through the journey of transformation and the promise of wishes coming true.

The power is within us. We create our own reality from our thoughts, words, intentions and actions. We hold within us the ability to imagine a better, brighter future for ourselves.

The Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse we’ve just experienced has brought up all our old fears, doubts, wounds and shames to be healed and let go. But what will take their place? That’s up to you. So dream it. Imagine it without placing limits on yourself. Then trust in a benevolent universe that will strive to bring you those dreams, giving ten-fold to the energy you yourself put forward.

Need some extra encouragement, support or inspiration?

Writing Ourselves into Awareness – A journalling activity for providing clarity

Meditation – Taking Energy from Trees – A simple technique for building your energy and bringing inner peace

Writing Yourself into a Brighter Future – Some writing prompts to help you get clear about future direction

Manifesting New Directions and Opportunities – more lovely journal activities for getting out of stuckness and back into flow

Becoming Who You Always Were – activities to help you find your own unique essence

You are beautiful and worthy, and there is an energy within you that is not duplicated anywhere else in the world. Allow the energies of this week to help you understand yourself better, and to anchor yourself in what supports and inspires you. 

Supportive crystals this week?

Rose Quartz is a stone of love and nurture – it helps you to be open to the giving and receiving of love. Yellow Obsidian is a gently shielding stone that helps you to think clearly and to break patterns of self-criticism and negative thinking. It aids in looking for positive solutions to life’s dilemmas and for embracing change. Carnelian dispels doubt and negativity, strengthening self-esteem, confidence and creativity. Ruby Zoisite (pictured) 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.

Helpful essential oils?

I’m loving Young Living’s Forgiveness oil blend this week. Its scent is soothing and uplifting. This blend has 16 different essential oils and resonates to a very high frequency. I often use it on my retreats to facilitate the release of trauma and to help students overcome fear, shame, heartbreak and emotional burdens around betrayal, abuse and abandonment. It opens us to being able to feel worthy of opportunity, and it helps us to positively transform. Place a few drops on soles of feet, wrists, over heart, base of spine and back of neck to help you release negative energy and emotion and move back into a heart-centred space.

Want to make your own blend? Lavender keeps us in flow and relaxed, Angelica invites inner peace and a sense of safety, Frankincense elevates our mood and promotes spiritual connection and intuition and Ylang Ylang opens our hearts and is supportive when we feel anxious or overwhelmed. 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

Using The Energies of The Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse – July 2018

 “Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakens.” ~ Carl Jung

 

Tonight (or the early hours of Saturday morning, depending on where you live) we will be witness to the longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century! Australia is particularly well positioned to see this event, and you can use this link to look up the time it will be visible from your location here.

This kind of event is sometimes known as a Blood Moon because of the refracted energy from the earth giving the moon a red glow.

The energies of this eclipse are strong and will work in your favour although they may make you feel a little uncomfortable over the next few weeks.

The main power of the eclipse is in its capacity to help you release old fears, pain, limiting behaviours and beliefs in order to live more fully from your heart. That’s a good thing! But you may find yourself feeling quite emotional and a little off-balance for a few days while this cleansing and rebirthing energy moves through your life.

If you are interested in doing some big shift and personal growth try the following activities to help you make the most of the moon’s dynamics:

Life Direction:

Charge up a crystal to use as a focus stone for meditation and journalling. Place the stone outside under the open sky overnight on the night of the eclipse. Hold the stone in your hands first, cleanse it by visualising white light running through it, and then hold the intention that this stone be used for personal clarity and life direction. Best crystals for this are clear quartz, smoky quartz, citrine, amethyst or rutilated quartz. Any configuration will be okay, including points, towers, tumbles, clusters and jewellery pieces. Then place the stone out overnight and remove when the sun is high in the sky the following day. Now the stone is charged hold it or place it nearby when you meditate and when you journal or use cards to gain clarity for your personal questions.

 

Physical healing:

Charge up a crystal to use as a focus stone for physical healing. Place the stone outside under the open sky overnight on the night of the eclipse. Hold the stone in your hands first, cleanse it by visualising white light running through it, and then hold the intention that this stone be used for physical healing, immune strengthening, pain management or any other specific issue you care to name. Feel free to charge one up for a loved one too if you want! Best crystals for this are bloodstone, carnelian, hematite, fire agate, red jasper and green jade. Any configuration will be okay, including points, towers, tumbles and jewellery pieces. Then place the stone out overnight and remove when the sun is high in the sky the following day. Now the stone is charged hold it in meditation, wear it or place in pocket, or put under your pillow when you sleep.

 

Emotional and Spiritual healing:

Charge up a crystal to use as a focus stone for meditation and journalling. Place the stone outside under the open sky overnight on the night of the eclipse. Hold the stone in your hands first, cleanse it by visualising white light running through it, and then hold the intention that this stone be used for releasing old pains, patterns and limitations and for healing emotional and spiritual wounds so that you can grow and change in positive ways. Best crystals for this are rose quartz, green aventurine, turquoise, amazonite, smoky quartz, moonstone, pearls or opal. Any configuration will be okay, including points, towers, tumbles, clusters and jewellery pieces. Then place the stone out overnight and remove when the sun is high in the sky the following day. Now the stone is charged hold it, wear it or place it nearby when you meditate and when you journal or use cards to gain clarity for your personal questions.

Moon Goddess by Josephine Wall

Questions to explore in your journal, with meditation, or using Oracle/tarot cards:

1. Start by holding your crystal if you have chosen one, and close your eyes. Allow your breathing to become calm, and let yourself relax. Then breathe in white light or draw it in through the crown chakra at the top of your head. Offer up a prayer that everything you do be for the Highest Good. Ask your Highest Self, Guides, Angels, Ancestors or God to guide you. Say or think the intention ‘Show me why I am stuck, and help me see what to do next.’

2. Open your eyes. Hold your crystal or place it beside you while you work (feel free to pick it up and hold it again if you need some energy or encouragement). Take your journal and a pen and write whatever comes, using any of the following prompts. Write your prompt into your journal and then keep writing in response to that prompt. Don’t edit yourself. Just let the words flow.

  • I’m stuck because…
  • I hate my life right now because…
  • What I really don’t like is…
  • What I really want is…
  • What do I need to tell myself right now…
  • What do I really need to know right now…
  • Who am I?
  • What do I want?
  • Where am I going?
  • What’s better for me?
  • I’d rather be doing…

3. If you’re super stuck, and nothing is coming, keep asking yourself Why? Give yourself every Why question you can think of. If you ask Why am I stuck? and then write This is stupid! ask yourself Why is this stupid? Eventually, one of the Why questions will pry free all of the feelings and thoughts and answers that are stuck within you. Why are you stuck? Why can’t you do this? Why isn’t this working? Why don’t you know? Why is this a dumb exercise? Why? Why? Why?

4. You’ll end up with words on the page. Hooray! That’s the beginning of unstuckness. Go back over what you’ve written with a highlighter or a pen in another colour where you can underline key words and phrases. Highlight anything that stands out to you.

5. Now choose one of those highlighted areas to investigate further. (This eclipse really supports diving deep.) Write the words you’ve highlighted into your journal again as a new entry, Eg: My relationship with Steve. Close your eyes again, breathe deeply and bring yourself to a place of calm. Feel your energetic team and your Higher Self ready to guide you. Fill yourself with white light and really feel into that support and connection. When you’re ready open your eyes again and pick up your oracle or tarot cards. Shuffle them, thinking about your relationship with Steve. Then choose three cards. The first card shows you where you are now. The second card shows you what the issue or limitation is. The final card shows you your opportunity or outcome. Look at the first card, and really pay attention to whatever thoughts, emotions or ideas come to you, and what the imagery of the card says to you in relation to where you are now with this situation. Then write what comes to you from looking at the card. Repeat this process for the second card, looking to understand what the issues or limitations are. Now use the final card to explore what the opportunities or outcomes can be.

Be open to situations where you may now need to find a coach, mentor or qualified therapist. Sometimes we can own and understand the problem but need help framing up a solution.

Our heart knows what it wants. Our soul can guide us. All we ever need to do is make time for that questing and connection.

As you begin to get unstuck again expect more answers, more flow and a return to inspiration. You’ve got this!

Much love, Nicole  xx

A Week For Positive Transformation – Monday Oracle 23 July 2018

“The most important journey you will take in your life will usually be the one of self transformation. Often, this is the scariest because it requires the greatest changes, in your life.
~  Shannon L. Alder

 

Hello, Lovelies!

July’s energies are so heart-full! They are all about love and togetherness. Make sure you find time for the people and things you love in July, and if you’re looking for love know that this is a very supportive energy for starting new relationships. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card Ace of Wands brings us.

The energies of this week are all about personal transformation. The Ace of Wands heralds a time where we can find our way free of stuckness and come out of darkness back into the light.

It’s a week that delivers personal clarity which can be the beginning of becoming comfortable with ourselves. The Ace of Wands supports us to find helpful coaches, teachers, mentors, counsellors and friends to bring out the best in us. It’s also a week where we can bring out the best in others.

This week is supportive of us choosing new and successful directions for our health, career, study or business or of adding thinsg into our existing situation to boost our results.

From a spiritual perspective, it’s a powerful time for all forms of meditation, healing work and metaphysical connection that leads to transformation of self or others.

Supportive crystals this week?

Rose Quartz is a stone of love and nurture – it helps you to be open to the giving and receiving of love. Yellow Obsidian is a gently shielding stone that helps you to think clearly and to break patterns of self-criticism and negative thinking. It aids in looking for positive solutions to life’s dilemmas and for embracing change. Smoky Quartz opens you to new possibilities and ideas and amplifies your inner voice.  Chrysocolla (pictured) supports heart-centred living and empowers you to know and speak your truth.  

Helpful essential oils?

Cypress is a very useful oil this week, unless you’re pregnant or lactating (if you are please don’t use this oil – try Roman Chamomile instead!). Cypress has a woodsy fresh aroma that is expansive and uplifting. It works with our heart chakra, helping us to step into our power and to move through grief, pain and trauma with grace and courage. It’s a great oil for your diffuser.

Want to create a soothing and empowering blend for the week ahead?
Add 6 drops of Cypress, 2 drops of Bergamot, 2 drops of Frankincense and 2 drops of Lavender.

 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.

A Week For Hope And Good Outcomes – Monday Oracle 16 July 2018

“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” ~ Harriet Tubman

 

Hello, Lovelies!

July’s energies are so heart-full! They are all about love and togetherness. Make sure you find time for the people and things you love in July, and if you’re looking for love know that this is a very supportive month for starting new relationships. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card Jack and the Beanstalk brings us.

Jack and The Beanstalk gifts us messages of hope, good outcomes and of surrendering to a higher power.
We have a chance to overcome our problems this week, especially if we get a little help from someone who has walked that same road and who knows what to be aware of and how to best proceed.
Jack and The Beanstalk reminds us about the unexpected gifts we can find when we follow new roads with a sense of curiosity – even when we don’t know where the road might lead or what our outcome will be. Embracing a spirit of trust and adventure is helpful this week and will serve us well.
There is a sense of things turning a corner for us, of improvements and breakthroughs coming our way. Because this is a month of love it also heralds breakthroughs in our communications with loved ones, solutions and breakthroughs where communication has broken down or hit an impasse, and new opportunities coming our way in love, especially in unexpected ways.
It’s also a strong week for fertility and all forms of creativity, and for planting the little tiny seeds of dreams that can one day grow into something strong and good and true.

 

Supportive crystals this week?

Rose Quartz is a stone of love and nurture – it helps you to be open to the giving
and receiving of love. Yellow Obsidian is a gently shielding stone that helps you to think clearly and to break patterns of self-criticism and negative thinking. It aids in looking for positive solutions to life’s dilemmas and for embracing change. Smoky Quartz opens you to new possibilities and ideas and amplifies your inner voice.  Sodalite (pictured) will help you express your personal truth and creative energy in thoughts, words and actions.   

Helpful essential oils?

Young Living has a blend called Release which is perfect for this week’s energies. It is an uplifting and nurturing blend of Ylang Ylang, Lavandin, Geranium, Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood, Grapefruit, Tangerine, Spearmint, Lemon, Blue Cypress, Davana, Lime, Ocotea, Jasmine, Matricaria, Blue Tansy, and Rose. It’s an essential oil we use on our retreats to help participants let go of emotional trauma, negative thoughts and beliefs, and old energies and emotions that have become stuck. I love it. It’s like an energetic broom to sweep away the dust and cobwebs, leaving you feeling clean, grounded and ready for what comes next.

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 reconnecting 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 any of your favourite essential oils – click here)

If you can’t get hold of Release then use any of Rose, Jasmine, Geranium or Blue Cypress this week.

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.

I’m holding a Channelling and Guided Meditation Evening from 6 to 9pm at The Yoga Centre, Adelaide tonight.

Come along and meet some of my Guides and energetic companions (including some fairy friends!). They will share information about a range of topics, as well as answering questions from the audience. I rarely conduct channelling sessions outside my retreats, so this is a very special offering. I’ll also be running a Guided Meditation Session to help you with Healing, Connection and Direction.

I’ll be channelling my guides and some fairy friends who’ll be discussing:

  • The differences between Angels and Fairies, and how to call on them
  • How Guides work and how you can connect to your own Guides
  • How to navigate life using your Intuition
  • Five clear ways to tap into your own Inner Wisdom
  • Understanding Karmic Relationships and Soul Groups
  • How to help the planet right now

These nights are always entertaining, educational and often very enlightening. There will also be time for you to ask questions. Tea and coffee will be provided.

Want to bring your kids? I welcome them as long as they are old enough to participate in the meditations and activities and are interested in the kind of content we’ll be sharing. As their parent you’ll know if this event is right for your child. This is not an evening suited to little children.

Tickets are $40 for adults and $20 for children under 17.

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,

PS: Monday’s oracle card, ‘Jack and Beanstalk’, 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. 

A Week For Love And Heart Healing – Monday Oracle 9 July 2018

“We must serve each other in love and in humanity.
~  Aberjhani

 

Hello, Lovelies!

July’s energies are so heart-full! They are all about love and togetherness. Make sure you find time for the people and things you love in July, and if you’re looking for love know that this is a very supportive energy for starting new relationships. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card Two of Hearts brings us.

This week focuses on two areas – connection and emotional healing.

It’s a week for deepening existing unions, for breakthroughs where there has been stuckness and forgiveness where there has been pain.

If you’re seeking a new relationship this is the week to put yourself out there, to make the first move, to be brave enough to say yes to that invitation or to ask that person out for a coffee.

Suffering from a broken heart? This week is a good time to get counselling to help put yourself back together.

This is an exceptional week for connecting with friends and family and for any kind of reunion or reconnection with people with whom you’ve lost touch.

This week also supports spiritual awakening and metaphysical connection, art and all forms of self-expression, art as therapy and the joy of being in flow with doing what you love.

 

 

Supportive crystals this week?

Rose Quartz is a stone of love and nurture – it helps you to be open to the giving
and receiving of love. Yellow Obsidian is a gently shielding stone that helps you to think clearly and to break patterns of self-criticism and negative thinking. It aids in looking for positive solutions to life’s dilemmas and for embracing change.  Kunzite (pictured) connects your heart and mind, and allows for profound emotional insights, helpful communication in relationships, and healing of relationships and emotions.
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?

Rose Essential Oil is my choice this week. This sweet and uplifting oil inspires deep emotional connection and opens our heart chakra to love. It enhances our mood, helps to balance hormones, brings emotional healing and draws joy and peace into our lives. Apply it to your pulse points at wrist, neck and over heart like a perfume. Place a few drops in your bath water. Diffuse it. Put a drop in the palm of your hand, rub hands together and then inhale the aroma. (Here’s a simple three-minute meditation you can do using geranium or any of your favourite essential oils – click here)

If you can’t access a pure rose essential oil,  try Ylang-Ylang, which opens our hearts and minds, helping us to feel deserving and open to abundance.

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.  A perfect choice if you’re bravely stepping into a new relationship space this week.

 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.

Energies of July- 2018

“Building a relationship is rare. Make the commitment wholeheartedly. Just do it and do it for both of you. Love doesn’t have to be perfect, but it needs to be true.” 
~ Napz Cherub Pellazo

Hello, Lovelies :)

Was there ever a better month for love and togetherness? Maybe not! Make sure you find time for the people and things you love in July, and if you’re looking for love know that this is a very supportive energy for starting new relationships.

Cards for the Month:

I’ve chosen two cards for July 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 become the image of your own imagination, it’s the most powerful thing you could ever do.”
~ RuPaul

Did someone say LOVE? July amplifies love and connection in all areas of our lives.
Most importantly, that energy extends to the way we see ourselves. We feel a deeper
connection to ourselves and the journey we have had through this life so far.

This month we will also feel a greater connection to our wider family and ancestors whose lives have shaped our own.

As we become more comfortable in our skin we realise that if someone doesn’t like us
that’s their problem. July supports us as we stay true to ourselves.

Relationships that are toxic and harmful to our well-being are easy to recognise and step away from this month.

 

The second card I’ve chosen is Ancestors. 

“That’s what people do who love you. They put their arms around you and love you when you’re not so lovable.”
~Deb Caletti

July is a month that supports all energies around family, relationships and emotional healing.

It’s a month for hanging out with friends, for meeting new people, and for romance.
Existing relationships can be rekindled this month, and there is magic in the air as we
connect heart-to-heart with those we love or are falling in love with.

July encourages us to connect into the community, to live from our hearts, to entertain and celebrate, to work and play with others rather than walking through the month alone.

This month put relationships first. Plan some time for socialising, for romance and for family.

Best crystals this month?

Rose Quartz and Yellow Obsidian

Rose Quartz is a stone of love and nurture – it helps you to be open to the giving
and receiving of love.

Yellow Obsidian is a gently shielding stone that helps you to think clearly and
to break patterns of self-criticism and negative thinking. It aids in looking for positive solutions to life’s dilemmas and for embracing change.

Essential oils to support your journey?

Rose Essential Oil is my choice for July. This sweet and uplifting oil inspires deep emotional connection and opens our heart chakra to love. It enhances our mood, helps to balance hormones and brings joy and peace into our lives. Usage: A drop over your heart and on your wrists as a perfume. If you can’t access a pure rose essential oil,  try Ylang-Ylang, which opens our hearts and minds, helping us to feel deserving and open to abundance. You can find the oils here.
