A Week Of Highs, Lows & Breakthroughs – Monday Oracle 18 June 2018

“Balance. It was all about balance. That had been one of the first things that she had learned: the centre of the seesaw has neither up nor down, but upness and downness flow through it while it remains unmoved. You had to be the centre of the seesaw so the pain flowed through you, not into you. It was very hard. But she could do it!
~  Terry Pratchett

 

Hello, Lovelies!

June is a quieter month energetically – one that invites us to spend time with loved ones, time on ourselves and our wellbeing, and time resting, recharging and doing what we love. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card Two of Crystals brings us this week.

At the beginning of this week expect some fluctuations in your mood and energy. One moment you’ll be flying high and the next you’ll feel like you need to withdraw from the world. Or you’ll be full of energy and then exhausted. Totally in love with your idea and then decide it sucks. Just flow with it, don’t fight it, and know that by later this week things will begin to settle down again.

The end of this week will see you potentially catapulted into a new phase in your life, and the key to success for you and any ventures you undertake will be co-operation.

One of the most beneficial energies that the Two of Crystals brings is the kind of helpful people and advice that propel you to achieve success in your chosen field or in solving your current dilemma. Be open to help and advice, and be prepared to consider things that might be new ideas or different to what you had planned. Get your team together. Trust that so much more can be done through co-operation and community.

The other thing Two of Crystals supports this week is anything to do with reclaiming health, fitness and overall wellness in your life. Make sure you’re getting balance between busy and quiet, between work and play, between moving your body and sitting in front of a computer or behind a desk.

It’s a week that can end in great progress forward, but remember to look after yourself, to ask for help, and to maintain balance and sustainability.

Supportive crystals this week?

Smoky Quartz opens you to new possibilities and ideas and amplifies your inner voice. Labradorite encourages self-care, supports empathy and intuition, and is a gentle and reassuring stone for developing psychic ability. Bloodstone will gift you energy, vitality and an understanding of how hard to push yourself and when to take a break.  Red Jasper (pictured) 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.  

Helpful essential oils?

I’m loving Sacred Frankincense or Sandalwood for balance and nurture this week. Sacred Frankincense has a rich, earthy aroma and is calming and supportive – opening you to deeper trust and spiritual connection.  Sandalwood with its distinctive woodsy sweet fragrance is the perfect oil to bring you back to a state of clarity, calm and positivity.

Apply either oil to your pulse points at wrist, neck and over heart like a perfume. Place a few drops in your bath water. Diffuse it in your home or office. 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’re looking for some extra support for your spiritual journey come check out my upcoming Pop Up Shop, Channelling Night and One Day Workshops in Brisbane 29 June to July. On Saturday June 30 I’ll be teaching Foundation Spiritual Practices (the things I used to develop my own psychic and intuitive skills, self-awareness and compassion), and on Sunday July 1 I’ll teach Meditation and Mala Making (this second workshop is brilliant if you are feeling stressed and overwhelmed, stuck or suffering from anxiety or depression). 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.

A Week For Self-Care! Monday Oracle 4 June 2018

““We are all butterflies. Earth is our chrysalis.” 
~  LeeAnn Taylor

 

Hello, Lovelies!

June is a quieter month energetically – one that invites us to spend time with loved ones, time on ourselves and our wellbeing, and time resting, recharging and doing what we love. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card Seven of Wands brings us.

This week we’re encouraged to make choices that support our healing and rejuvenation journey. Think extreme self-care! This isn’t just about diet and exercise, although making healthy choices and being more active is always a good idea.

For some people what will be needed most this week is early nights.

For others it might be a massage, or spending some time on personal maintenance – you know; having a manicure, getting your hair done or buying some new clothes. A little strategic pampering can go a long way this week.

What you might need most this week is a walk on the beach, a night staying up late listening to your favourite music, or a trip to the movies.

You might even need to do some unpleasant things that will ultimately benefit you, such as going to the dentist, getting your will made or seeking legal advice.

Whatever you decide, make choices that support you and help you to feel nourished, loved, uplifted and cared for – especially for all of you who spend the majority of your time looking after everybody else.

Supportive crystals this week?

Smoky Quartz keeps you grounded, gifting inner strength and the ability to
listen deeply to your own needs. Labradorite (pictured) encourages self-care, supports empathy and intuition, and is a gentle and reassuring stone for developing psychic ability. Rose Quartz is extremely nurturing, helping you to act and speak kindly and lovingly towards yourself. Larimar is also a good choice. This pretty blue stone will help you to speak your needs, and acknowledge where you are stuck, out of flow or in need of healing and change. A super stone for calling in healing on all levels.

Helpful essential oils?

Geranium is my choice 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 essence. It will uplift you and stimulate creativity, sensuality and emotional flow. 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)

If you’re completely strung out then Lavender Essential Oil will calm your mind and body. Use in the same way as outlined above for Geranium Essential Oil.

 You can find the oils here.

July Workshops and Pop Up Shop:
If you’re looking for some extra support for your spiritual journey come check out my upcoming Pop Up Shop, Channelling Night and One Day Workshops in Brisbane 29 June to July. On Saturday June 30 I’ll be teaching Foundation Spiritual Practices (the things I used to develop my own psychic and intuitive skills, self-awareness and compassion), and on Sunday July 1 I’ll teach Meditation and Mala Making (this second workshop is brilliant if you are feeling stressed and overwhelmed, stuck or suffering from anxiety or depression). No matter what level you’re at I’ll have something for you on my program. More details here!

Energies of June – 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 :)

Take a deep breath, schedule some downtime, and welcome the energies of June. June is a quieter month that invites us to spend time with loved ones, time on ourselves and our wellbeing, and time resting, recharging and doing what we love.

Cards for the Month:

I’ve chosen two cards for June for you: one from Colette Baron-Reid’s Wisdom Of The Oracle  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:

“Courage is the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you can’t practice any other virtue consistently.”
~ Maya Angelou

June calls us to shift our energy inwards again. It’s a time for rest, healing and working on our own projects. It’s a time for cosying up with the people we care about, for nights in and quiet weekends at home or in the company of our dearest friends, while saying no to anything or anyone that takes us away from our highest priorities.

You might find that this is a lower energy month for you. That’s okay. It’s a month for regrouping, for gentle fun and connection, for extreme self-care and nurturing yourself and those you love.

The second card I’ve chosen is Full Moon. 

“Whatever it takes to finish things, finish. You will learn more from a glorious failure than you ever will from something you never finished.” 
Neil Gaiman

This month is an incredibly productive time for bringing a singular focus to getting something done. You might not have time for other people’s dramas but you’ll find energy for your own projects and passions. It’s all a matter of clear priorities and healthy boundaries.

June also shows us where we need to hand tasks or responsibilities to others. We cannot do everything ourselves, or be all things to all people. June supports us engaging help, finding staff or team members, and asking others to step up and contribute so that our situation is fairer and more collaborative.
It’s a time for visions, dreams and spiritual connection, and for honouring our soul wisdom. Magic can happen this month, if only we make a little time to listen and to connect.

Best crystals this month?

Smoky Quartz  and Labradorite

Smoky Quartz keeps us grounded and gifts us inner strength and the ability to
listen deeply.

Labradorite. encourages self-care, supports empathy and intuition, and is a gentle and reassuring stone for developing psychic ability.

Essential oils to support your journey?

Young Living’s Joy and Envision essential oil blends are my picks for June. Joy opens our hearts and tunes us in to our own inner wisdom as well as Universal Guidance and Support. It is uplifting, comforting and empowering. Dab a drop of either oil on your Crown Chakra, back of neck, wrists and the soles of your feet, inhale directly or add to your diffuser. Envision helps us to see the possibilities for ourselves and our life. It brings inspiration, intuition, insight and clear vision. Rub a drop together in your hands, breathe in deeply and then wipe your hands in a circular extending movement through your aura. Finish with a drop on your Crown Chakra, Heart and inner wrists.

Want to make your own blend? Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own for you this month, but they’ll also make a delicious combination for diffusing. Frankincense for spiritual and intuitive connection and restoration of faith. Geranium for stress reduction and emotional balance, and for evoking a sense of peace and goodwill. Orange for optimism and happiness. Pine for being grounded and centred in ourselves as we open to our highest potential. 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 June.

Lots of love, Nicole❤ xoxo

A Week For Hope and New Directions – Monday Oracle 28 May 2018

“Everything you attract into your life is a reflection of the story you believe and keep telling yourself.” 
~ Farshad Asl

 

Hello, Lovelies!

May is a month that empowers us to take the long view of our goals, and to make decisions and take actions that support those goals. We see that it is pointless to put ourselves under endless pressure. May supports sustainable action, and working towards our goals and dreams bit by bit, step by step. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card Three of Wands brings us.

This week we’re encouraged to monitor our self-talk. You know – that endless stream of thoughts and commentary that accompanies us in our mind as we go about our lives. Three Of Wands tells us that it is time to sing a better song, and that we need to sing our dreams into reality.

Watch how you talk to yourself this week. Are you encouraging or mean? Wise or cynical? As you come into an awareness of the language and tone you use for yourself actively start to change it to something more positive. Talk to yourself as a parent would speak lovingly to a child. Be aware of the energy of other people and how that impacts you too. Surround yourself with people who believe in you and who lift you up. If that’s not possible then minimise the time you spend with people who are toxic, negative and unsupportive.

The Three of Wands also reminds us to watch our actions. What choices are you making? Are they aligned with your values and the person you want to be? If you want to be healthy are you moving your body and making good food choices? Whatever it is that you hold as a vision for yourself, it is your self-talk and actions which will make that vision a reality. You have more power in your life than you truly know.

It’s a great week for bringing projects to life, for making big decisions, for nurturing tender new ideas that will go on to change your life direction.

If you’ve been down a hole of self-loathing, discouragement, fear and despair Three of Wands is a bright ray of sunshine through the clouds.

This week has a magic to it that can restore hope and leave you feeling stronger and better able to cope, to thrive, to create a life that makes you happy. And it all starts with you actively choosing to talk encouragingly to yourself, to be supportive to yourself, and to trust that you can make the best choices for your life.

Supportive crystals this week?

Orange Calcite connects you to creativity, inspiration and your heart’s desires and helps you to develop confidence in yourself and your dreams. Use it to help you see your first steps forward. Amethyst helps you tune in to spiritual guidance and also helps you to think deeply about your problems in ways that allow solutions to be found. Tiger Eye will help you focus, make big decisions and act with integrity and courage.  Rose Quartz (The pink central stone in the photo below) helps you to act and speak kindly and lovingly towards yourself.

Helpful essential oils?

Cypress is a very useful oil again 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 doubt, despair and stuckness with grace and courage. It’s a great oil for your diffuser.

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.

If you’re looking for some extra support for your spiritual and creative flow come check out my upcoming Pop Up Shop, Channelling Night and One Day Workshops in Brisbane from Friday 29 June to Sunday July 1. I’ll be teaching Foundation Spiritual Practices on Saturday (the things I used to develop my own psychic and intuitive skills, self-awareness and compassion), and Meditation and Mala Making on Sunday(this second workshop is brilliant if you find meditation difficult or are feeling stressed and overwhelmed, stuck or suffering from anxiety or depression – plus you’ll get to make your own beatiful mala beads to take home). .More details here!

I also have my upcoming Intensive Mentoring and Retreat teaching Accelerated Channelling Using Sacred Geometry. Click on the link to find out more.

No matter what level you’re at I’ll have something for you on my program.

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

A Delicious Offer For Lovers Of Plant Wisdom from My Friend Maia Toll

“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.” 
John Muir

I don’t endorse people and their work lightly. But I feel very comfortable introducing you to my dear friend Maia Toll. Maia is a herbalist, teacher and wise woman. She’s also a gifted writer.

It will be published by Storey in August this year and I’m bursting at the seams with pride and anticipation.

I’ve had the honour of reading the draft copy, and of exploring this new resource Maia has created for us. She introduces us to 36 different plants, sharing their wisdom and taking us on a journey both mystical and practical. Although Maia is my friend that makes no difference to my assessment of these cards and handbook – she has created something important, something special, something unique and so worth adding to your collection. This book and card deck will help you on your own soul journey. The illustrations, the text itself, the activities and exercises – all of them are precious and meaningful. I just love this project and I know that you will too.

Right now if you pre-order your copy Maia is offering you a free course ‘Secrets of The Illustrated Herbiary’ which will help you to increase your awareness of your energetic self, tap into your inner wisdom and forge a deeper connection with both yourself and nature. It’s a generous and special offer, and I wanted all of you to be able to take advantage of this sharing.

I look forward to sharing more of Maia’s work with you when her book launches. Meanwhile, go pre-order your copy and then dive into her bonus online course.

Love and hugs from Maia’s very proud friend, Nicole   xx

A Big Week For Change and Healing – Monday Oracle 21 May 2018

“I can love who I think you are
Or you can allow yourself
To be yourself
So that I can love YOU.” 
― Kate McGahan

 

Hello, Lovelies!

May is a month that empowers you to take the long view of your goals, and to make decisions and take actions that support those goals. We see that it is pointless to put ourselves under endless pressure. May supports sustainable action, and working towards our goals and dreams bit by bit, step by step. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card The Big Bad Wolf brings us.

The Big Bad Wolf calls on us to face our fears, our shadow side, and the dark place where we hide our secret hopes and dreams.

If you’re honest (and I want you to be honest) there are parts of yourself that you’re ashamed of – things that have happened in the past, that were done to you or that you’ve done to yourself or someone else. Or maybe you’re ashamed of the way you look or the way you act or of your current situation.

There are places and emotions within you that may make you feel uncomfortable. Perhaps it’s anger, maybe it’s lust, or it could be a huge desire to say ‘Screw it!’ and walk away from whatever is the sensible situation or relationship that everyone else keeps telling you is so great.

There are also dreams and desires you keep hidden deep inside because they mean so much to you. If you act on them and fail then who will you be? If you act on them and are judged or are rejected who will love you? If this thing doesn’t work out what will shape your life and give it meaning?

The Big Bad Wolf shows you that these inner places hold the key that will unlock your power. Embracing them and integrating them into your life, or bringing them out into the light to be healed or expressed will help you to grow and give your life satisfaction and meaning.

Think about those shadow parts of yourself and those secret dreams. Then find a way to claim them, heal them, integrate them, act on them. That’s your path to growth, and your path to self-love and reconnection with all that you are. This week can be life-changing if you are brave enough to act.

Trust your intuition – it’s heightened right now and this deeper sensitivity will guide you well.

Supportive crystals this week?

Orange Calcite connects you to inspiration and your heart’s desires and is a wonderful beginner stone for tuning in to the spiritual realms. Use it to help you see your first steps forward. Amethyst helps you tune in to spiritual guidance and also helps you to think deeply about your problems in ways that allow solutions to be found. Smoky Quartz (pictured) helps you tune in to your shadow side with empathy, compassion and wisdom. Tiger Eye will help you focus, make big decisions and act with integrity and courage.

 

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.

If you’re looking for some extra support for your spiritual journey come check out my (rescheduled!) Pop Up Shop, Channelling Night and One Day Workshops in Brisbane 29 June to 1 July. I’ll be teaching Foundation Spiritual Practices (the things I used to develop my own psychic and intuitive skills, self-awareness and compassion), Meditation and Mala making (this second workshop is brilliant if you are feeling stressed and overwhelmed, stuck or suffering from anxiety or depression). No matter what level you’re at I’ll have something for you on my program. More details here!

A Week For Increasing Emotional Contentment – Monday Oracle 7 May 2018

“Dare to love yourself
as if you were a rainbow
with gold at both ends.”

~  Aberjhani

 

Hello, Lovelies!

I’m still bedbound with the flu but am slowly improving. Another week in bed and hopefully I’ll be back on my feet again, fingers crossed. Luckily May is a month that empowers us to take the long view of our goals, and to make decisions and take actions that support those goals. Knowing that has helped me to take the pressure off myself and to use this downtime for longer-range planning and dreaming, in between naps of course! May supports sustainable action, and working towards our goals and dreams bit by bit, step by step. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card Ten of Hearts brings us.

The number one message of this card for the week ahead is that when we move to a place of emotional or spiritual contentment our minds open, our psychic senses are strengthened and goodness and inspiration flow. Make sure to schedule some time for planning or working on your dreams this week – then crank up your favourite music and use any other props (think incense, cups of tea, going for a surf, heading to a cafe or library, walk outside etc) that get you in a positive frame of mind – and let the creativity and new ideas flow. Equally, take time to kick back with the people you love, to connect with something or someone heart and soul, and to truly enjoy some quality down-time this week too.

Can you see how the Mermaid is riding a turtle in the Ten of Hearts? Here’s our reminder – going slowly is okay, as long as we are heading in a direction that is satisfying for us. The journey is as important as the destination. So how can you make your journey more enjoyable? What lights you up and fills you up? Plan to do more of that this week, or start to make the decisions that will bring these things into your life during the year.

If you’ve been looking for a sign as to whether a new relationship, idea or business will work for you take this as an indication that the answer is YES.

Ten of Hearts shows us that no matter where we are on the journey we need to find situations, relationships and actions that are meaningful to us. Life is so short and so precious. It will always have bumpy bits but as much as possible we need to find a way to enjoy the ride, no matter what our current circumstances or the past we are leaving behind.

Supportive crystals this week?

Orange Calcite connects us to inspiration and is a wonderful beginner stone for tuning in to the spiritual realms. It’s great for all forms of creativity. Amethyst helps us to tune in to all forms of spiritual guidance and also helps us to manifest and become clear about our life path. Smoky Quartz helps us let go of old hurts, old pains and old ideas/situations/dreams so we can move forward without regret, and finally any kind of Geode will be great this week for amplifying joy and abundance in our lives. A geode is a little ‘cave’ or hollow filled with smaller crystals. The one pictured is an Amethyst Geode!

 

Helpful essential oils?

I’m loving Geranium again 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 essence. It will uplift you and stimulate creativity, sensuality and emotional flow – all energies that are great for shifting us into a more creative 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.

The Energies of May – 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 :)

Take a deep breath, schedule some downtime, and welcome the energies of May. May is a month that empowers you to take the long view of your goals, and to make decisions and take actions that support those goals. We see that it is pointless to put ourselves under endless pressure. May supports sustainable action, and working towards our goals and dreams bit by bit, step by step.

Cards for the Month:

I’ve chosen two cards for May 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:

“Courage is the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you can’t practice any other virtue consistently.”
~ Maya Angelou

May opens us up to bigger possibilities. We begin to see how we can build our dream, and who might help us. It’s also a month where we become comfortable with taking the long view on life. No more crash diets or mad deadlines. We understand that building a better life is done one day at a time, and that some of our goals and dreams might take months or even years to come to fruition. That’s okay. It takes the pressure off and allows us to settle into sustainable routines and rhythms. Will it matter if it takes years to earn a qualification, or if our new business starts slowly? Or if it takes time to renovate, lose the weight or rehabilitate an injury. No. What matters is working towards something that we are emotionally invested in and which will move us to a more fulfilling place than where we currently find ourselves. 

It’s a month that supports promotions, career and relationship advancement and bold moves in new directions. Trying new things helps to expand our world. Think travel, whether that’s just around the corner or to the other end of the globe. Think experimenting with new looks, new foods or new hobbies.

 

The second card I’ve chosen is Wolf. 

“Once a month, for one evening, we are free to wear our natural skins. We are on the outside as we are internally.”
~D.R. Hedge, The Geri Rogue

It’s a fabulous month for revitalising our bodies and improving our diet. Get moving again with stretches, yoga, hiking in nature or dance.

May encourages leadership,  and supports us with strong gut instinct and intuition for making the best decisions for ourselves, our families, our businesses and our futures.

Best crystals this month?

Amethyst and Orange Calcite

Amethyst helps us to tune in to all forms of spiritual guidance and to make a sound, wise decisions.

Orange Calcite connects us into inspiration and creativity, helping us to express ourselves and live from our innermost nature, our talents and abilities.

Essential oils to support your journey?

Young Living’s Believe blend is my choice for May. 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.

A Week Of Increasing Courage! Monday Oracle 30 April 2018

“Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free.” 
Jim Morrison

 

Hello, Lovelies!

I know, I’ve been very quiet this last little while and I’ll tell you all about that in another post, but meanwhile let’s talk Monday Oracle! It’s the last day of April (so I’m wishing the happiest of birthdays to my sister, Simone) and it has been a month for the flow of new ideas and inspiration as well as sudden flashes of insight and clarity.

May is just around the corner, and this lovely oracle card –  Seeker of Crystals – links the energies of April with the blossoming energies of May in a week ahead that empowers you to take the long view of your goals, and to make decisions and take actions that support those goals.

Seeker of Crystals gift to you is courage this week. You’re reminded to tap into your own inner strength as you overcome your fears and vulnerabilities You might still feel scared, anxious, nervous or terrified! But the Lion walking his path shows you how to walk yours. Lift your head high, keep your eyes fixed on where you want to go and then just start.

Expect that as you bravely step out in a new direction, or pick yourself up and get back onto the road that you’ve been avoiding, signs and blessings will show you that you are indeed on the right path. As long as you don’t quit, know that you can succeed at this thing that is so important or dear to you.

Totally overwhelmed by the task in front of you? Small steps, small steps, small steps. Every single thing that has ever been achieved was completed because people took action and didn’t quit.

This is also an excellent week to write out your goal and targets, update your dream board and place them where you can look at them often. Use whatever you need to motivate yourself. Then let this positive energy and planning support you throughout May. Let it be a month where things change in your favour because YOU made it so!

 

Supportive crystals this week?

Clear Quartz (pictured) amplifies intuition and your ability to tune in to Universal and Personal Wisdom. It’s a great stone to enable you to understand at a soul level what you really need. Amazonite helps you to live bravely and from your heart, especially in regard to decisions and direction. It will boost self-confidence and self-worth. Orange Calcite connects you to inspiration and is a wonderful beginner stone for tuning in to the spiritual realms. It’s also great for all forms of creativity. Amethyst helps us to tune in to all forms of spiritual guidance and to make sound decisions.

Helpful essential oils?

This week I’m loving Young Living’s Valor essential oil blend. It’s great for releasing old ways and old thinking, and for finding the courage to move in new directions. The fragrance of Valor is soothing and grounding and I find that it brings me instant calm when I am anxious or afraid. You can also use Young Living’s Peace and Calming Blend if you don’t have Valor at hand!)

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 reassuring 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 Valor 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. 

If you can’t access these oils then use Sandalwood, Ginger or Rosemary.

Looking for Valor, Peace and Calming or Believe blends? 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, ‘Seeker 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. 

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.
