“If your daily life seems poor, do not blame it; blame yourself, tell yourself that you are not poet enough to call forth its riches; for to the creator there is no poverty and no poor indifferent place.”
~ Rainer Maria Rilke
Has August got you humming yet? It’s a truly energising month! Here’s Monday’s oracle card, and my take on the energetic outlook for the week ahead. I use any cards shown as a prompt for channelled messages and my own intuitive wisdom, so my take is sometimes quite different to the meaning found in a book. ‘Creation’ is from the Chakra Wisdom Oracle Deck by Tori Hartman.
If you read my forecast for August, you’ll remember that August brings an emerging energy of creativity, emotional healing and an abiding need for more balance in our lives.
Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts Creation brings us this week.
If you’ve had a project on the backburner, in the bottom drawer, mapped out on the backs of enveloped or tatty notebooks, or just floating around in your head, this is the week to restore it to life.
There’s inspiration in the air this week! In fact the air is ahum with fertility. (Great if you’re in the baby-making space, but if that’s not for you be extra cautious so as not to end up in the family way!) Expect new ideas, all manner of inspiration and unexpected connections to people and projects that will become increasingly important to you in the months ahead.
Always wanted to try your hand at writing, pottery, scrapbooking, baking, floral work, furniture restoration, chainsaw ice-sculpting? There’s no better time to sign up and begin.
It’s a blockbuster week for sorting out old problems and for breakthroughs that lead to permanent solutions. If you need to negotiate anything you’ll find this week’s energies conducive to cordial communication – there’s a spirit of openness and receptivity, even in those who usually don’t dwell there.
New ideas? This week they’ll come to you with meat on their bones instead of flimsy things you have no clue about what to do next with. Think J.K. Rowling and her initial Harry Potter inspiration…
Finally, it’s a week of heightened ESP. If you’re intuitive, empathic or energetically sensitive expect deeper connection in your meditations and spiritual practices. A wonderful week for all forms of giving and receiving energy work, readings and healings. Even people who don’t consider themselves intuitive will find a greater flow of wisdom and certainty this week.
Supportive crystals this week?
Nephrite Jade (Greenstone) is a stone that supports heart-centred living and emotional expression in life and in art. Carnelian energises and grounds the physical body and aids all forms of healing and creativity. Great for overcoming exhaustion and burnout. Orange Calcite for flow of creative ideas and for connected inspiration. Pearls for softening and opening our hearts to our art and true direction!
Helpful essential oils?
Sokli gave me this recipe ages ago. She calls it the Lucky Happy Magic Recipe and I find it marvellous for enhancing and supporting creativity. You’ll need Lavender 2 drops, Orange 4 drops, Ylang Ylang 4 drops, Sandalwood 3 drops. This recipe is one of my favourite essential oil blends to put in a diffuser or as a perfume or bath oil. I make up a little bottle of the mix and then I can add it to my bath or take it with me to inhale or wear. Always dilute in a little carrier oil before applying to skin, and remember that citrus oil should not be applied to any skin that will be in sunlight.
This week keep yourself open to possibility and make some time for creativity and inspiration – whatever that looks like for you. Holding you, as always, in my thoughts, prayers and meditations, and intending for a you a life of abundance and joy, where you are no longer limited by your doubts.
All my love,
Nicole ❤ xx
