A Perfectly Wonderful Week For Adventures – Monday Oracle 3 December 2018

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.
~  Roald Dahl

 

Hello, Lovelies!

December is a month for planning and dreaming, interspersed with fun, curiosity, friendship and celebration.  Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card Child of Wands brings us.

This card heralds delightful energies for a week of adventure. For some people that means outings, unexpected invitations or a sudden strong yearning to break free and go do something different instead of being shackled to routine and boredom.

You’ll also find a note of optimism creeping in, and a newfound appreciation for the small details of your life and the world around you.

It’s a week of surprises, inspired thinking, emotional shifts and big breakthroughs. You’ll have an extra store of emotional courage and personal bravery this week, helping you to put yourself out into the world. Child of Wands reminds us that we can go beyond our current limits, and that we can choose to see ourselves and our lives differently – so that a new and brighter future becomes possible. Map those ideas out and begin making a plan. Ideas are no good if they have no action to back them up and turn them from thought into reality.

If you’re a creative soul you’ll find the ideas literally pouring into your brain and body this week, and you’ll feel itchy for some kind of outlet for the expression of all of this energy. Make sure you take the time to capture those ideas in a recording or on paper. Then make a start, no matter how small. It could end up being a life-changing project for you!

Supportive crystals this week?

Petrified Wood promotes compassion, wonder, curiosity and benevolence. It is a stone for healing old hurts and allowing hope back into your heart. Amazonite helps you to live bravely and from your heart, especially in regard to your creative projects. It will boost self-confidence and self-worth. Orange Calcite connects you to inspiration and is great for all forms of creativity. Green Aventurine (pictured) helps you to relax into the flow of life, tapping you into the joy of living and that wonderful feeling of gratitude.

Helpful essential oils?

Hands down it’s 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)

For relaxing, enjoying life and lifting your mood try any of these oils on their own or in combination – Wild Orange, Lavender, Geranium, Frankincense and Cinnamon Bark. Cinnamon gives that lovely spicy Christmassy feel to a blend, helping put your house in the holiday mood.

I’m passionate about essential oils and their capacity to support our wellness journey and our spiritual and emotional wellbeing. If you’d like to know more or want to source the oils I recommend and trust visit this site or contact me at channelnc@gmail.com

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, ‘Child of Wands’, 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 December – 2018

“What you have to decide… is how you want your life to be. If your forever was ending tomorrow, would this be how you’d want to have spent it? Listen, the truth is, nothing is guaranteed. You know that more than anybody. So don’t be afraid. Be alive.” 
Sarah Dessen

Here we are, Lovelies  –  December! We’ve managed to navigate the big energies of this year. We’re still standing. And the energies of the month ahead will truly help is to enjoy December and the gifts it brings.

December is a month for planning and dreaming, interspersed with fun, curiosity, friendship and celebration.  Hooray!

Cards for the Month:

I’ve chosen two cards for December 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 channelled information.

Here is what I have received from each card:

“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much”

~  Helen Keller

Now that you’ve had a year of becoming strong in yourself, of connecting to your creative essence, of living from your truth and from your heart you are well positioned to think about your life unfolding in front of you  –  what you want to keep, what you want to build on and what  you want to change. This month give some thought to that. Journal and explore these things. Let your examination of your life lead to clarity, decisions and a plan for future action.

Include your friends, family and work colleagues in your life planning discussions if that’s relevant for you. In this new era of co-operation, connection and community it’s good to remember that we are not in this journey alone and that some of our strongest decisions will come from that collaborative process of talking, sharing and expanding upon ideas and feelings.

The second card I’ve chosen is Childhood. 

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

 

The other gift of this month is the need to celebrate and take pleasure from the life and relationships we have already created. Drop any cynicism and get out of your head and back into your heart. Be childlike in your sense of wonder  and enjoyment.

Plan time for that connection with people, with pleasurable activities, with shared adventures and shared tables.

Live! Enjoy! Connect! Share! Look ahead to festivities and adventures beyond this month too.

What life moments can you celebrate or plan for in the months and years ahead?

Any little trips you can make  –  around the corner or even around the globe?  Devote some time to enjoying life, and for finding new things to explore or be inspired by, this month and then next year and beyond. Love and be invested in your life now, while planning for more goodness and meaning as we move towards 2019.

Best crystals this month?

Petrified Wood and Green Aventurine.

Petrified Wood promotes compassion, wonder, curiosity and benevolence. It is a stone for healing old hurts and allowing hope back into your heart. (Don’t you love this pink! The earthy tones of the wood have been enhanced by the mineral manganese as it petrified, turning the wood pink as it became stone)

 

Green Aventurine helps you to relax into the flow of life, tapping you into the joy
of living and that wonderful feeling of gratitude.

 

Essential oils to support your journey?

My choice for oils that will support focus, clarity and planning this month are Peppermint, Rosemary and Lemon. Choose one or all of them for your diffuser – they work beautifully together.

For relaxing, enjoying lift and lifting your mood try any of these oils on their own or in combination – Wild Orange, Lavender, Geranium, Frankincense and Cinnamon Bark. Cinnamon gives that lovely spicy Christmassy feel to a blend, helping put your house in the holiday mood.

I’m passionate about essential oils and their capacity to support our wellness journey and our spiritual and emotional wellbeing. If you’d like to know more or want to source the oils I recommend and trust visit this site or contact me at channelnc@gmail.com

PS – Want a bargain? Today is the last day that my Pre-Order Packs will be up in our shop. We’re already processing and sending out our beautiful Planners, Meditation Malas, Crystals and extra goodies. I’d intended for December 1 to be the day when all of our Christmas and New Year products and membership options went live but yesterday I needed to attend to client and family emergencies and didn’t have a chance to sign off on all our changes. So you can expect them to be up tomorrow. That means you’ll be able to buy the Planner or Mala on their own. Meanwhile, if you put an order in for a pack today you’ll save money AND I’ll throw in a little extra magical surprise with your order. Use this link to check out the packs and to access the shop.

A Week For Clarity and Purpose – Monday Oracle 26 November 2018

“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” ~ C.S. Lewis

 

Hello, Lovelies!

November is an unusual month, gifting us energies in two different but interlinked areas. The first area is spiritual development. It’s a great month for all forms of metaphysical work, for clarifying our Life Path and for honouring a life-calling by owning our capacity to share knowledge. The second area is our connection to the natural world, and to the nature spirits of the Earth. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card Six of Crystals brings us.

I love this card. The message is beautifully summed up by one of my favourite songs from The Sound of MusicClimb Every Mountain. Its message is encouraging us to climb every mountain in pursuit of our dream, or of finding whatever that dream is for us if we don’t know yet. It’s sung by the Abbess to the young nun Maria who is struggling to fit in and find her path.

At the end of the movie the song is played again as a refrain as Maria and the Von Trapp family flee over the mountains into Switzerland to escape Nazi-occupied Austria. Maria has found her dream and committed herself to it completely.

This week we’re encouraged to really step back from our everyday lives and truly think about what our dreams are. Our lives are precious and our dreams matter. Six of Crystals reminds us to keep our dreams at the fore and strive towards them. For some of you this also means that you will be the one leading others on the road you have already travelled as you help them to achieve the things that you already know and practice, or have overcome.

No dream to follow?

Then rest. It’s impossible to be inspired or creative when we are exhausted and dispirited. Take steps to simplify your life and make the changes you need to gently restore your wellbeing and vitality. Spend some time in nature, even if that’s as simple as walking home after work, sitting in the sun at lunchtime or doing some yardwork on the weekend.

Rest – that’s what I’ve been doing as I recover from this latest health hiccup. At first I found it frustrating to be so incapacitated but once I surrendered to it there were many gifts for me in that quiet slow space. Anyway, I’ll tell you more about that tomorrow. I’m easing back into the world, slowly slowly. So grateful for that – I’ve missed you all enormously.

Supportive crystals this week?

Que Sera lifts your vibration and enables you to merge with your own soul knowledge. It’s a stone for personal and spiritual empowerment. 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 (pictured) helps you tune in to spiritual guidance and also helps you to think deeply about your dreams and challenges in ways that allow solutions to be found. Tiger Eye will help you focus, make big decisions and act with integrity and courage. Garnet connects you into the fairy realms, to trees and the earth and all nature spirits. It grounds you and helps you to sit in a vibration of wealth and abundance.

Helpful essential oils?

If you’re ready for clarity and direction:  Patchouli essential oil grounds you and opens you to your Higher Self and intuitive wisdom in a gentle and reassuring way. Cedarwood essential oil enhances all forms of spiritual connection, and creates awareness of the natural world and the energies of nature. Arborvitae creates spiritual trust and is grounding and opening – it’s one of my favourite oils, especially when I meditate (use it with a couple of drops of Frankincense and you’ll be flying in your meditations too!). Use these oils in a diffuser, rub on soles of feet or simply drop some into your palms, rub together and inhale.

If you’re exhausted, discouraged or stuck:  Geranium is brilliant for helping you relax, unwind and get connected to your creative and intuitive essence. It will uplift you and stimulate creativity, self-confidence and emotional flow – all energies that are great for shifting you into a more positive space. If you’re an over-giver and your tank is dry, Geranium oil will fill you back up again. Apply it to your pulse points at wrist, neck and over heart like a perfume. Place a few drops in your bath water. Diffuse it. One of my favourite uses is as a centering and inspiring pick-me-up. Put a drop in the palm of your hand, rub hands together and then inhale the aroma.

Monday Oracle 19 November 2018

“There’s no point having wishes if you don’t at least try to do them
~  Sally Nicholls

 

Hello, Lovelies!

November  is  an  unusual  month, gifting  us  energies  in  two  different  but interlinked areas. The first area is spiritual development. It’s a great month for all forms of metaphysical work, for clarifying our Life Path and for honouring a life-calling by owning our capacity to share knowledge. The second area is our connection to the natural world, and to the nature spirits of the Earth.Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card The Fairy Godmother brings us.

This week we are reminded not to despair. No matter what we are facing, no matter how long the road in front of us may be, no matter what obstacles we face from outside us or within us, The Fairy Godmother card appears to us with a message of hope.

Take some time this week to reconnect with your dreams. Know that you’re being called to keep these dreams alive. Tap into inspiration. Clear some time to work on those dreams of yours. Expect that inspiration will flow, that clarity will come, and that miracles have a good chance of showing up on your doorstep. Be brave and take some creative and professional risks. Trust in good outcomes.

The Fairy Godmother reminds us that we don’t have to do it all on our own. In this new post-2012 era we’re living in energies that support collaboration, co-operation, community and connection. Ask for help, or be the Fairy Godmother for someone else this week and help them with reaching their dreams!

Magic abounds this week. It’s a great time for innovation, for luck, for charm and good fortune. Trust that the right people and the right objects or projects will come your way. Your intuitive and empathic abilities will also be heightened so pay attention and trust your instincts. Most importantly keep the flame of your dreams alive and burning brightly in your heart.

Supportive crystals this week?

Que Sera (Vulcanite) lifts your vibration and enables you to merge with your own soul knowledge. It’s a stone for personal and spiritual empowerment. Garnet connects you into the fairy realms, to trees and the earth and all nature spirits. It also helps you to sit in a vibration of wealth and abundance. Clear Quartz 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. Orange Calcite (pictured) 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. 

Helpful essential oils?

Patchouli essential oil grounds you and opens you to your Higher Self and intuitive wisdom in a gentle and reassuring way. Cedarwood essential oil enhances all forms of spiritual connection, and creates awareness of the natural world and the energies of nature. Arborvitae creates spiritual trust and is grounding and opening – it’s one of my favourite oils, especially when I meditate (use it with a couple of drops of Frankincense and you’ll be flying in your meditations too!).

Energies of November – 2018

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
~  Ralph Waldo 

 

Hello, Lovelies :)

November  is  an  unusual  month, gifting  us  energies  in  two  different  but  interlinked areas. The first area is spiritual development. It’s a great month for all forms of metaphysical work, for clarifying our Life Path and for honouring a life-calling by owning our capacity to share knowledge. The second area is our connection to the natural world, and to the nature spirits of the Earth.

Cards for the Month:

I’ve chosen two cards for November 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:

“Share your knowledge.
It’s a way
to achieve immortality.”

~  Dalai Lama, (1357 – 1419, high lama of Tibetan Buddhism)

 

This month we’re in Third  Eye  and  Crown  Chakra  territory  –  November’s energies enhance our  ability  to  have  insight  and  a  higher  perspective  about  ourselves,  our life and  our  direction.  It’s  a  month  for  gaining  clarity  about  our  emerging  life-path,  and for  becoming  clear  about  major  decisions  or  direction  changes  that  are  needed  in our  lives  as  we  seek  to  move  toward  a  way  of  living  and  expressing  ourselves that is  in  greater  alignment  with  our  soul’s  truth. 

It’s  also  a  month  where  you  can  share  your  knowledge,or get ready to. This could be  through  your  role  as  a  parent  or  friend,  through  your  career  or  your own business,  in  your  community  or  for  your  family  or  the  wider  world.  Think  of how you  could  share  your  wisdom:  conversations,  recipes,  photographs,  articles, gifts, projects,  a  letter,  a  blog  post,  a  social  media  sharing,  the  sharing  of  an  item or  artifact  that  has  a  story  to  accompany  it.  In  this  new  era  sharing  and  helping each other  to  grow  by  sharing  what  we  know  is  so  important.  How  can  you  be part  of that  change?

The second card I’ve chosen is Dragonfly. 

The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.” 
~ John Muir

November  strengthens our  connection  into  Nature  and the  blessings  of  the  earth. Expect to feel hear or even see earth  spirits  such  as  divas  and  fairies. Tune in to the plants,  trees, rivers  and  rocks, the wind and rain, the sun and moon and stars.

Allow yourself that primal understanding of your own body and its needs. Feel into the world around you using your senses and intuition.

 It’s  a  month  for  strong  anchoring  into  a grounded  and  connected  space  that  is sustainable  and  nurturing  for  us.  

Make  sure to  capitalise  on  this  fabulous  gift  by  spending  some  quiet  time  in  nature spaces, and  by  inviting  nature  into  your  home  in  the  form  of  plants,  floral arrangements, essential  oils,  fresh  food  and  crystals.

Detoxing and decluttering are also well supported in November. You’ll see where you need to let go of things or what needs simplifying!

Best crystals this month?

Que Sera (Vulcanite) and Garnet.

Que Sera (Vulcanite)lifts your vibration and enables you to merge with your own soul knowledge. It’s a stone for personal and spiritual empowerment. 

Garnet connects you into the fairy realms, to trees and the earth and all nature spirits. It also helps you to sit in a vibration of wealth and abundance.

Essential oils to support your journey?

Patchouli essential oil grounds you and opens you to your Higher Self and intuitive wisdom in a gentle and reassuring way.

Arborvitae creates spiritual trust and is grounding and opening – it’s one of my favourite oils, especially when I meditate (use it with a couple of drops of Frankincense and you’ll be flying in your meditations too!).

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

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

~  Hakim Sanai

 

Hello, Lovelies!

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

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

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

Supportive crystals this week?

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

Helpful essential oils?

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

I’m passionate about essential oils and their capacity to support our wellness journey and our spiritual and emotional wellbeing. If you’d like to know more or want to source the oils I recommend and trust visit this site or contact me at channelnc@gmail.com

Energies of October – 2018

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

Hello, Lovelies :)

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

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

Cards for the Month:

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

Here is what I have received from each card:

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

~  Robert M. Pirsig

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

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

The second card I’ve chosen is Gaia. 

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

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

Best crystals this month?

Bronzite and Angelite

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

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

Essential oils to support your journey?

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

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

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

You can find the oils here.

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

Teacup Oracle – For Life Guidance

 

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

 

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

Every so often I like to create an oracle for you. The very first one I ever posted was The Healing Power of Flowers and Fairy Blessings.  We offered a selection of flowers for you to choose from, and each flower came with a message – a mini-reading if you will. It was so well received that I’ve been creating oracles for you ever since.

Today I’m so pleased to offer you another of my Magical Oracles! This time, I’m offering a cup of tea to provide you with the wisdom, guidance and support you might need right now.

Instructions for using today’s post

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

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

Love and Light,

Nicole ♥ xx

♥ Your Teacup’s Message ♥

Each magical teacup has a message for you. I have also selected a crystal to best support the message and energies of your teacup.  You could wear or hold this crystal, pop it in your pocket, under your pillow or beside your bed. (If you’d like to know more about working with crystals click here) The Power Word is a word to remind yourself of the quality you most need and that you are strongly attracting right now.  You can turn it into your own personal mantra by saying “I choose ___________ ” (insert your Power Word). Your Magical Healing Environment is a place or activity you’ll find supportive and healing.

1. Violets Teacup You’re being so strongly supported by loved ones who’ve crossed over, and by your Guides and the Angelic Realms. Call on them for help and guidance, and know that you are deeply loved, even as you feel so alone. They have a message for you to let you know that everything, ultimately will be okay, and they are sending you strength, grace and love.  Best Crystal – AMETHYST   Power Word – SUPPORT  Magical Healing Environment – Quiet time on your own to fill yourself up with nurture, to give yourself time to think and plan, and to learn from all of these lessons in your life.  It’s breakthrough time. You’re almost there!

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

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

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

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

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

6. Skull and Roses Teacup  The message of this teacup is self-expression and self-care. Your soul is longing to be heard – it yearns for individuality, for attention to detail, for beauty and for art.

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

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

 

Hello, Lovelies!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Supportive crystals this week?

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

Helpful essential oils?

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

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

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

 You can find the oils here.

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

All my love,

Nicole ❤ xx

PS: Monday’s oracle card, ‘Alice in Wonderland’, 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.
