Creative Breakthroughs Ahead! – Monday Oracle 7 August 2017

“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

Hello, Lovelies,

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.

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

 

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

The Week Ahead – Oracle for Monday 17 April 2017

“Every minute brings a new opportunity. Every minute brings new growth, new experiences.”
~ Mario Cuomo

Hello, Lovelies!

Here’s the oracle card I have chosen this Monday, and my take on the energetic outlook for the week ahead. I use any oracle or tarot 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. ‘Expansion’ is from the Chakra Wisdom Oracle Deck by Tori Hartman.

If you read my forecast for April, you’ll remember that April has strong energy for believing in ourselves and reclaiming our direction.

So, what gifts does Expansion bring for you this week?

Expansion gives us such wonderful perspective this week. Finally we are able to see ourselves honestly and with kindness. We’re able to hear our own inner wisdom, and the wisdom from others that resonates with our own soul knowing and highest good..

This week is about honouring our needs, and making sure that we move in the direction of our own best selves. As we do this we will find that support comes from all kinds of avenues. A fresh breeze travels into our lives, shifting us from stagnation and back to a place of hope and optimism. Our soul is expanding and requiring that we live more truly as ourselves, with no apologies.

For some people this is about healing. If you know you need to seek a second opinion, get a check-up, speak to a therapist or an expert, commit to a way of eating or cleaner living, move your body more or get that problem attended to, this is your week for it. And it’s a glorious week for setting you up to keep on going and to make major lasting changes.

For some people this is about projects dear to your hearts. If you have a calling, a vision, a project, a business, an idea, a book inside of you – anything like this – Expansion calls to you to stop talking and start doing. There is fabulous energy for starting, completing and also for sharing your offerings.

For some of you, it’s about spiritual and psychic connection, mediumship and channelling, and for stepping bravely into a more intuitive, wise and heart-connected space. This also heralds well for spirit-guided relationships. This is a week where all kinds of relationship opportunities can come your way, with a little help from above.

It’s a week of elevated perspectives, possibilities, new ideas, bright beginnings and glimmers of hope that become golden sunbursts. Change is in the air!

 

Supportive crystals this week?

Snowflake Obsidian will help to remove old negative self-talk and replace it with optimism. Selenite will help you to connect into your guides, angels and psychic ability. Amethyst will truly boost your intuitive abilities and help you on your spiritual path.  Carnelian for physical healing and Lepidolite for emotional healing.

Helpful essential oils? 

Young Living’s Awaken essential oil blend, or a combination (or singly!) of any of Geranium, Bergamot, Sandalwood and Lavender. Awaken essential oil blend smells sweet and woody and can be worn as a perfume (Place on wrists, over heart and on back of neck) or used in a diffuser. A few drops in the bath are heavenly too. It’s a great oil to get you out of your head and into your heartspace. It promotes spiritual connection and intuition and is deeply calming. I love this oil, and it’s my oil of choice in my diffuser this week. You can find all the oils here.

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

The Energies of June – 2016

“It really boils down to this: that all life is interrelated. We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tired into a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one destiny, affects all indirectly.”
~ Martin Luther King Jr.

 

 

Hello, Lovelies :)

Welcome to June. June is a month for plugging ourselves into the wider world. It’s a perfect time for creating or joining teams, for travel, for organising help, for forming new relationships and strengthening our relationship with ourself.

Cards for the Month:

I’ve chosen two cards for May for you: one from the Osho Zen Tarot Deck, and one from Colette Baron-Reid’s Wisdom of the Oracle. Please note I don’t use these cards in the conventional way, but rather as a stimulus for channelled information.

Here is what I have received from each card:

werworld

“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” ~ Helen Keller

 

June is all about connection. Connection to friends and family. Connection to social networks, connections in the workplace, and connections to the world-wide-web. No matter who you are, or where you are, look for opportunities to reach out and connect with other people. Have you been thinking of someone lately whom you haven’t seen for a while? Call them up, invite them for coffee, or drop by and say hi.

Travel. Get out and see a little bit more of your corner of the world, or further afield. Let June have a little adventure in it for you!

Everyone needs a team, and June is the perfect energy for expanding yours. Your team is anyone who helps you in some way. Your dentist, the person who makes your coffee in the morning, the place where you buy your groceries – all of these people are as much a part of your team as the people you work with or your family members.

We all need to help each other, and having a team we can rely on is vital to sustainability, wellbeing and managing stress effectively. Teams amplify energy and creativity. They relieve our burdens and help us all to grow.

June reminds us not to overreach. The thing we don’t enjoy doing or aren’t good at is someone else’s favourite thing, just as you can do things easily that other people might find hard. Who needs you on
their team? How could you help them?

June is also about where you can make a difference.
Take time this month for connecting with people who are important to you, and who make you feel good. Build your team. Put your hand up to be part of someone else’s. How can you be the solution to someone else’s problem?

 

exchanging gifts

“Fair exchange is no robbery.” ~ L.A. Banks

 

The second card I’ve chosen is Exchanging Gifts. It’s a sensible message of caution that supports the initial card about connection.

This card reminds us that there needs to be fair energetic exchange when we put our talents and gifts out into the world. Don’t work for free unless you need the experience or you are happy to donate your time and efforts.

Don’t give time (or any other gift) to those who won’t value it. Limit your exposure to the users of the world, especially those who are habitual takers in your life.

Be generous with praise where it is deserved, and support where it feels right. Sometimes our payment is in the satisfaction of having lived true to our values – helping another who had nothing to give in return.

This month you can make incredible progress in your life. Don’t let it be derailed by people who are selfish and clueless and who make it all about them. Set clear boundaries and make sure to hang out with people who encourage and uplift you.

 

 

Best crystals this month?

Moonstone helps us to tune in to the energies of the people around us. It supports empathy and intuition, and is a gentle and reassuring stone for developing psychic ability.

This is a super stone to wear as a ring, bracelet or pendant.

 

Carnelian is a joyful stone of creativity and passion that helps keep us motivated,
inspired and energised. Wonderful if you feel depleted or exhausted as it provides a great boost to your physical body.

Essential oils to support your journey?

Try this sublime diffuser blend of 6 drops of Lemongrass, 5 drops of Joy (a Young Living blend) and 1 drop of Vetiver. This fragrance is uplifting, refreshing and the Vetiver gives that touch of grounding. If you don’t have Vetiver use a drop of Cedarwood instead. Instead of Joy you could substitute 2 drops of Geranium, 2 drops of Ylang Ylang and 1 drop of Bergamot. My fairy friend Sokli calls this her Wake Up Happy! blend. You can find the oils here.

Sending all my love to you, Nicole ♥ xx
