Monday Oracle – 11 December 2017

 “Much unhappiness has come into the world because of bewilderment and things left unsaid.
-Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Hello, Lovelies!

December is a month of gifts of pleasure, true abundance and celebration

Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts which the oracle card Confusion brings us.

So, what awareness does Confusion bring us this week?

This card has a simple but powerful message: Everything looks and feels worse than it is when you are in a place of exhaustion!

Confusion reminds us that sometimes the best decision we can make is to postpone that decision while we get some rest. When we’re so tired that our brain is about as sharp as a beachball it’s never going to be our best thinking.

We live in a crazy, busy unrelenting world. Confusion asks us to consider what we can do to ease the craziness this week. Maybe we need an early night, or to go for a walk each morning or before bed to clear our head. Maybe we need to cut back on outings, commitments, social media or screen time. Perhaps we can support ourselves better with some nutritious food (good quality takeout can sometimes be an option at times like this – make sure to order enough so that there are leftovers for a second meal).

Confusion’s teaching: This week look at what you can delegate, delay or drop from your busy schedule. Free up some breathing space. Get a little time for yourself, even if it’s just ten minutes over your favourite brew in the local cafe or at home in a cosy quiet corner. Treat yourself with great care and love. You’ll be in a much better position to make decisions or create plans once you’re rested and your head is back on right.

Note: In my Year of ME Planner (ME stands for Manifesting Energies, and for those already using it our planner is known as the YOM planner and our community are YOMMERS!) we cover this very situation in a section known as Sustainable Madness, where I show you how to navigate crazy times or crazy deadlines while exerting extreme self-care.

It’s nearly time for our yearly Planner Launch (this year we even have A5 physical copies too, yay!) Stay tuned and I’ll give you more details tomorrow.

Supportive crystals this week?

Clear Quartz lifts your vibration and opens you to flow. It is a highly spiritual stone, encouraging self-reflection and helpful for hearing messages and receiving signs or direction that can assist you on your journey.  (This is not a great choice if you are feeling scattered, because Clear Quartz amplifies your energy – if you’re all over the place then choose a Carnelian or Red Jasper to centre you back in yourself and give you energy.)  Unakite helps you to feel supported, calm and grounded. It opens your heart to love, and draws love, friendship and helpful people to you. It also helps you to overcome feelings of isolation or loneliness.

Helpful essential oils?

I’m loving Young Living’s Envision this week. It’s an oil blend I often use in my workshops and retreats to help my students connect to inner wisdom and intuition. It helps us to see a greater possibility for ourselves. Use Envision for spiritual connection, inspiration and breakthroughs. Yes, especially when you are exhausted, uncertain or feeling a bit broken. Dab a drop on your Crown Chakra, back of neck, over your heart, wrists and the soles of your feet, inhale directly or add to your diffuser. 

Want to make your own blend? Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own for you this week, but they’ll also make a delicious combination for diffusing. Vetiver will calm and ground us, promoting emotional balance, Lavender keeps us in flow and relaxed, Ylang Ylang opens our hearts and is supportive when we feel anxious or overwhelmed, and Bergamot brings joy, gratitude and optimism.  To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser. You can find the oils here.

 

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

All my love,

Nicole ❤ xx

Monday Oracle – 4 December 2017

 “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes...” – Marcel Proust

Hello, Lovelies!

December is a month for gifts of pleasure, true abundance and celebration. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts which the oracle card Discovery brings us.

So, what awareness does Discovery bring us this week?

This week is all about forgiveness, sitting in our heart space, letting go of judgement and criticism of self and others, and being able to embrace the moment while becoming open to receive as we draw opportunities and adventures to us for the year ahead. It’s time to forgive ourselves for all of those moments in our lives we look back on and wince. It’s time to forgive others, to allow for new connections or healing to replace that energy of stuckness, pain, anger and shame.

I’m loving this week’s energy. I’ve just finished a BIG meditation for you, focusing on opening up to new possibilities and becoming comfortable with change. (It supports and continues the intention work I did with our crystal grid for 2018 on retreat last week.)

When we keep comparing our life to how it was a week, a month, years ago, it holds us in the past, and prevents us seeing the wonderful things in front of us right now. This week Discovery encourages us to let go of our attachment to needing situations or people to ‘go back’ to how they were in the past, or dwelling on ‘how they could have been’. If you’ve found yourself drowning in regret and melancholy, stuck in the past or glorifying how things were or ‘might have turned out if only things had happened differently’, this is your week to break that unhealthy attachment to wanting to recreate the impossible.

We finally begin to understand that we are changed, and can never return to who we were yesterday, a month ago, a decade ago. That person no longer exists because we have evolved and moved forward. The Universe is an ever-expanding force, and so are you. This holds true for everyone around you. None of us is the same person we were. Everyone and everything changes. We can never go back, only forward.

Discovery opens us to change and new life. It’s a week for letting go in order to embrace the new. As every door closes another one opens.

Keep reminding yourself that life is an unfolding miracle and you are worthy of love and all good things. It’s true, and I’m holding that space for you in my meditations this week.

Supportive crystals this week?

Clear Quartz lifts your vibration and opens you to flow. It is a highly spiritual stone, encouraging self-reflection and helpful for hearing messages and receiving signs or direction that can assist you on your journey. A clear quartz point or cluster will be extra supportive for you this week! Carnelian gives increased feelings of self-acceptance, creativity, energy and practical inspiration. Iolite illuminates your depths and helps you to see what’s hiding, and what you’re not seeing – a beautiful stone for boosting self-belief. 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?

I’m loving Young Living’s Envision this week. It’s an oil blend I often use in my workshops and retreats to help my students connect to inner wisdom and intuition. It helps us to see a greater possibility for ourselves. Use Envision for spiritual connection, inspiration and breakthroughs. Dab a drop on your Crown Chakra, back of neck, over your heart, wrists and the soles of your feet, inhale directly or add to your diffuser. 

Want to make your own blend? Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own for you this week, 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. Pine is also an oil that supports family gatherings and open connection. To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser. You can find the oils here.

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

Monday Oracle – 27 November 2017

 “Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” – Rumi

Hello, Lovelies!

November is a month for knowing ourselves deeply, for healing old hurts and for prioritising and redesigning our lives so that they better represent the person we are and the person we want to become.

Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts which the oracle card Impasse brings us.

So, what awareness does Impasse bring us this week?

This week we find ourselves at breakthrough point. The things that have held us trapped begin to dissolve or come unstuck.

For some people this will be a gentle easing – a simple shift that brings a gradual return to power or direction, or a slow dawning realisation that changes everything. This could be the introduction of one tiny achievable daily habit, or a decision not to drink alcohol during the week, or the urge inside you to clean the house or buy some new clothes and freshen up your appearance. Perhaps the shift will be towards acceptance of something, so that your circumstances don’t change but your attitude does (think acceptance of your illness, or of your partner leaving, or that who you are is who you are and maybe it’s time to be okay with that). The shift will be small enough that you don’t fight against it, so the change will sneak in slowly and you’ll have adjusted and re-calibrated to that shift before you fully understand just how momentous it will be for your life.

For some people there will be a light-bulb moment this week: a thought, an idea, a conversation, a resource from which inspiration comes. ‘That’s it!’ you’ll think to yourself as something lights up inside you. Suddenly you’ll know what to study, what to offer, what to call yourself, what to do. It will all make perfect sense and you’ll have answers to problems you’ve grappled with for months or even years, and the beginning of a clear path forward.

For some people the clearing of obstacles this week will be sudden and even violent. Things will change fast. There will be endings, beginnings, urgency, discomfort or pain as you are required or forced to move forward. If you don’t choose life will choose for you, or someone else’s choices will turn your world upside down. It’s as if you’ve been swept up in some crazy tsunami. Remember this: keep breathing! Know that your job is to keep your head above water and trust. The turbulence will eventually subside. The waters will calm. You’ll wash up some place far, far from here and when the shock wears off you’ll see that this is a much better place, and that you could have got here no other way.

This is a week for overcoming obstacles, dissolving inner blocks, rediscovering momentum and clearing the way for major change.

If you’re deep in this process seek help to clear, ground and integrate these energies and changes. But don’t fight it. Flow, flow, flow in all you do.

Supportive crystals this week?

Clear Quartz lifts your vibration and opens you to flow. It is a highly spiritual stone, encouraging self-reflection and helpful for hearing messages and receiving signs or direction that can assist you on your journey. A clear quartz cluster will be extra supportive for you this week! Iolite illuminates your depths and helps you to see what’s hiding, and what you’re not seeing – a beautiful stone for boosting self-belief. Green Aventurine opens you out into possibility, tapping you into the joy of living and that wonderful feeling of gratitude. 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.

My Favourite Crystals For Spiritual Connection

2013-12-15 19.05.45

“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.”
~ W.B. Yeats

 

Meditation, connecting with our guides, getting into a channelling space or spiritual flow, doing readings or healings, clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, working with energy, astral travelling, improving our psychic and metaphysical abilities – all of these things can be made stronger and easier with the help of crystals.

Here are my favourite stones for connection, and how you can use them too.

Amethyst

A great all-rounder. Helps beginner psychics to tune in and trust. Helps advanced practitioners to deepen and strengthen their abilities. Perfect for helping you with ‘seeing and hearing’ all things metaphysical. Activates Crown and Third Eye chakras. Want to meet your guides? Use amethyst.

 

Labradorite

A stone for strengthening intuition and healing abilities, especially the ability to channel energy through your hands. Wakes up latent psychic abilities and taps you into past life memories clearly and easily. Helps you to bring through answers and guidance for self and others. A terrific stone for personal growth and reflection.

Clear Quartz

Opens the Crown Chakra, infuses you with white light, and enhances all of your natural psychic and intuitive abilities. Clear quartz will help show you who you are, what your gifts are, and how you can best use them. Can be used for all forms of metaphysical work. Brilliant for calming the mind and helping you expand your energy and tune in to messages. Accelerates spiritual growth. Not all stones will suit beginners (you may get a really bumpy ride that is uncomfortably fast!). A great stone to program and for all kinds of healing and grid work. A stunning meditation companion stone. Connects you into Higher Guides. Builds discipline and focus.

 

Orange or Golden Calcite

The perfect beginners stone for those who wish to channel information for themselves and others. Gentle energies to enhance clear communication with the higher realms. Helps calm mental chatter and strengthens trust in the messages and images you receive. Boosts creativity and intuition. An amazing stone for doing all forms of channelled writing and art.

 

Lapis Lazuli

This is THE stone for connecting into past lives, past life remembrance and the Akashic Records. Also good for astral travel and lucid dreaming. Not a beginners stone, but those who are attracted to lapis are never beginners anyway, even if they feel that way to start. Brings rapid remembering of your healing and psychic abilities. Helps change makers to bring about that change. Enhances the Throat-Heart-Crown Chakra connections and promotes clear speaking. Reduces stress and anxiety, helping you to accept that you are different and that you have a calling. A stone for those who want to dedicate their lives to some form of spiritual or higher service, including heart-centred entrepreneurs, leaders and business people.

Rhyolite

A delicious stone for connecting into off-world energies, and for all forms of channelled and automatic writing – especially writing with your Guides and Higher Self. Some rhyolites also aid connection to the fairy realms, to nature and nature spirits, to the oceans and cetaceans, and to trees. A soothing and grounding stone that holds much magic. Used in meditation it will help you to see energy, auras and to bring breakthroughs in your thoughts, behaviour patterns and healing. Stimulates creativity and innovation, including guided wisdoms that enhance your own abilities and knowledge.

Rose Quartz

This yummy stone nurtures us as it opens and activates our Heart and Crown chakras. This stone works from love, and helps all that you do to come from love. The perfect stone for connecting into your Guardian Angel, and the Angels of others, as well as to guides who come to work with us offering messages of love, hope and support. A terrific stone for children, and for beginners, but don’t underestimate its power. Every lightworker needs a rose quartz for nourishing and supporting their emotional and spiritual energies. A giving and teaching stone.
