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.

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.

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.

6. Skull and Roses Teacup  The message of this teacup is self-expression and self-care.

The Power of Mentors – Your Path To Success

Mentorship is simply learning from the mistakes and mastery of a successful person in his/her field. – Bernard Kelvin Clive

 

We all learn by modelling ourselves on others.  As babies we mimic our parents, copying everything they do until we learn to do those things for ourselves; facial expressions, gestures, words, movements…  The fastest way to have success in anything is always to find someone who is already doing that thing, and then copy what they do, or even better – engage with them and have them show you, or help you.

A mentor is someone who has walked the path before you, learned from their mistakes and become successful in their field. What makes them valuable to you is that THEY know how to do what you want to do because they’ve done it already. I have found business mentors, writing mentors (Hi, Doctor Kim!), money mentors and organic farming mentors to name a few. Sometimes my relationship with these people has been a tangible thing, and sometimes I’ve just watched what they’ve done or read their book – and copied what they did to become successful in their field.

I also work as a spiritual mentor with people who want to develop their metaphysical and psychic abilities. That’s a road I know very well.

It’s never too late to change or improve ourselves.  Today we’re going to use journalling to help us identify who we want to be, and who can help us achieve those dreams. Why not make yourself a nice cup of tea, or take yourself out to a coffee shop. With a beverage at your elbow, and a notebook and pen in hand, work through the following activity. You might surprise yourself at what you discover.

Journal Exercise:

Start by writing this passage at the top of your page.

Dear Universe, 

I trust that there is a Universal Wisdom which recognises my gifts and talents, that understands what outcomes and adventures are best for my Highest good, and that matches me to mentors best suited to helping me achieve my dreams.

I trust that there is someone out there who knows exactly what I need to do next. 

I am ready to embrace the possibility of a better life for myself. I am ready to move from struggle into flow.  I am ready to embrace abundance, in all its forms. I want you to know that I’m ready for whatever wonderful experiences and opportunities you send my way. I am ready to embrace change, and I am ready to embrace success. Thank you for the mentors I now attract into my life.

Now think of an area in your life where you would like to have success.  Don’t judge what comes next, and don’t over-think it.  Just trust that what you write will begin to create a greater sense of personal and spiritual awareness in your life.

Create a list of people who are leaders in this field, and that you can look up to. (if you don’t know who they are, then do a little research!)

Choose one of the people on your list and spend some time writing about WHY you admire this person, and what they do or have done that you would like to have more of in your own life.  Really allow yourself to explore this in detail, making the emotions you feel as you write this strong and real.

When you have finished, write about how you want YOUR life to look as you walk this same path.  Write down the outcomes you want for yourself, and how this will positively change your future, and the world around you.

Do this over a couple of days, using different mentors from your list each day. Trust that as you build this connection through writing, the perfect teachers, courses, resources, mentors and support will begin to show up in your life.

NB: If you feel that you are walking a path of spiritual awakening right now, and you’d like to explore that further, I suggest you do this exercise while holding one of the following crystals:

  • Clear Quartz – for connecting with Guides and Higher Wisdom
  • Fluorite – for understanding your creative path, and for clear guidance with writing
  • Sodalite – for answers about relationships and knowing your own truth
  • Amethyst – for connecting into your spiritual gifts
  • Rhyolite – for channelled wisdoms – showing you that inner truth you find difficult to access on your own

 

One more thing…

You know more than you think you do.  How can you mentor others? Where can you reach out to people to share what you know, so that others can learn from YOUR experiences and mistakes?

Learning is love – so let’s spread the love around.  Helping others achieve their dreams always moves us closer to our own. ♥

Innovation, Inspiration and Creativity! – Monday Oracle 20 August 2018

“You are the storyteller of your own life, and you can create your own legend, or not.
~  Isabel Allende

 

Hello, Lovelies!

August is here, bringing a delicious basket of delights. It’s a month for creativity in all forms and for getting back into the flow of life again. You’ll find a lift in your mood and a clear road ahead so get ready to make the most of the opportunities all around you. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card  Nine of Crystals brings us.

Nine of Crystals is about being the storyteller of your own life. It is up to you to be the author – to write your life the way you want to live it. It’s about stepping into consciousness and understanding your role as a co-creator in your life. It’s a time of heightened creativity and of positive opportunities, gifts and freeing up of flow and abundance.

Don’t panic if the Universe has alreday got the wheel in motion by ending something in your life or turning everything on its head – your outcomes will end up being positive as you are repositioned to somewhere that suits you better and allows greater flow and growth.

This week you’ll find the strength to step away from people and situations that don’t work for you, or to plan your escape at a time that suits your needs. It’s a week well suited to applying for new positions, for asking someone new out on a date and for anything where you are trying new things or stepping outside your comfort zone.

Nine of Crystals encourages you to inspire, encourage and uplift others this week by sharing information and kind words and showing your support. Expect generosity, kindness and goodwill to flow back to you too.

Creative energies are at an all-time high during August so carve out some time to work on projects that are meaningful to you, or sign up for some classes to hone your talents or learn new skills. It’s also a week to find some quiet time and moments that fill body and soul with love and nurture.

Supportive crystals this week?

Ruby Zoisite is a stone of transformation, helping you to be empowered in your life. It elevates your confidence and authority, and improves fertility, imagination and innovation. Carnelian dispels doubt and negativity, strengthening self-esteem, confidence and creativity. Sunstone helps you to sit in a place of abundance thinking so that you see the blessings and possibilities in life and to believe in your right to a better future.  Clear Quartz (pictured) will help you to grow into your possibilities, to create a clear vision for your life, and to connect deeply to your intuitive wisdom and soul guidance.

Helpful essential oils?

I’m loving Geranium 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 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. (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. 

 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, Nine 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. 

How To Charge Your Crystals Tonight!

“The full moon – the mandala of the sky.”

~Tom Robbins

 

Tonight, May 29 2018, is a full moon.

Ordinarily, I’d suggest that you place your crystals out on the earth to be charged up by the energy of the moon and by the grounding and cleansing effect of the stones being in contact with the earth. But right now our world is being bombarded by positive ions from the numerous solar flares that the sun is emitting. These particles fall to Earth and render the crust of the planet positively charged instead of the usual negative ionic field. That means your crystals won’t be able to be effectively grounded and cleared, although they will still be able to be charged by the moon.

So, what can you do?

It’s the perfect time to place Celestite, Angelite, Apophyllite, Smoky Quartz, Amethyst or Clear Quartz stones on the Earth. Cleanse them first by smudging them or using sound (such as a Tibetan Bell or Bowl).

Photo Credit: @DoD News, Flickr

Then place the stones directly in contact with the ground. The stones will gain a strong charge that will promote psychic attunement and growth, but they will lack any grounding energies. Leave out overnight. These stones can then be used by you in meditation to more easily connect energetically to your Higher Self, Guides and Angels. They will also be incredible stones for working with your dreams. Wrap the stones in a dark cloth when not in use.

If you want to be able to ground and cleanse your other crystals tonight don’t place them directly on the earth. Instead take a timber, clay or ceramic bowl (don’t use plastic, glass or metal) from your kitchen and line the bottom of the bowl with dried rice and then place the stones on top of the rice.

The rice still holds a negative charge and the energies of earthing.  Put the bowl outside on a bench or other elevated position so that is not in contact with the ground. Leave overnight as usual. When you bring the stones back inside discard the rice.

Need some extra support around these Solar Flares? You might find this post helpful.

Thinking of you all and sending so much love, Nicole ❤ xx

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.

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

Lots of love, Nicole❤ xoxo

Monday Oracle – 8 January 2018

 “If the only prayer you said was thank you, that would be enough. –  Meister Eckhart

 

Hello, Lovelies!

The cards I am using for guidance for 2018 are the enchanting Inner Child Cards – A Fairy-Tale Tarot by Ishna Lerner, Mark Lerner and Christopher Guilfoil. I’ve used and loved these cards for over 25 years and they are just perfect for our year ahead. They may seem childlike and whimsical in their design but there is great depth and wisdom within them.

January is a month for easing ourselves into the energies of 2018, for resting and recharging, for planning and dreaming and for tuning in to what can support us in the year ahead.

Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of awareness which the oracle card Seven of  Crystals brings us.

This is a week for counting our blessings, for sitting in gratitude for what is already good in our lives, and for thinking about the experiences, energies, relationships and opportunities we wish to draw to ourselves in 2018.

No matter what your spiritual or religious inclinations, find some sacred time for yourself this week. That might be attending a church, lighting incense and offering prayers in a temple, meditation time, a walk in nature or any place that helps you to find that stillness within and without.

If you want, it’s also a great week for creating a simple altar or sacred space at home. Think of a small space on a tabletop or window ledge where you can place a few things that have deep meaning for you, and where you might also keep a crystal, candle or some fresh flowers. What you choose and create is up to you – it’s a little physical reminder of your own sacred soul path and inner journey, and your own personal spiritual beliefs.

It’s a week for stepping away from the news, gossip and any outside negative energies. Don’t worry. They will still all be there when we come back into the world, but for now, Seven of Crystals reminds us to keep our hearts and thoughts full of kindness, love, gratitude and positive thoughts for ourselves and others.

Supportive crystals this week?

Selenite boosts intuition and all forms of spiritual connection. It will help you to connect into your guides, angels and psychic ability. Fantastic for gently guiding you inwards.

Red Jasper is a stone for mental, physical and emotional rejuvenation. Deeply grounding, it helps you connect to your heart and your truth. 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 or double terminated stone will be extra supportive for you this week! 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?

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. 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

The Energies of December – 2017

“Be grateful for what you already have while you pursue your goals. If you aren’t grateful for what you already have, what makes you think you would be happy with more?” 
~Roy T. BennettThe Light in the Heart

Hello, Lovelies :)

Finally, here we are at December. It’s a month for counting our blessings, filling ourselves with what nourishes us and speaks to our souls, and celebrating the relationships that make our lives worthwhile.

Above all it’s a month for kindness and generosity of spirit towards ourselves and others, and for planning gently and realistically about the coming year.

Cards for the Month:

I’ve chosen two cards for December 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:

“When you are grateful, fear disappears and abundance appears.”
~ Anthony Robbins

 

December brings gifts of pleasure and true abundance. A rich life is one that is blessed with love, with friendship, with gratitude, and with self-love. December invites you to celebrate all that is good in your life, and to share these blessings with others. It invites you to fill your life with the relationships, activities and moments that bring you pleasure. It invites you to begin harvesting some of the goodness you have sown this year.

Take time this month to devour music, silence, spiritual connection, food, company, solitude, urban wonders, rural landscapes, mountains, oceans and everything in between.

Share. Connect. Fill yourself with wonder.

Organise meetings with friends and loved ones.

Celebrate with your tribe.

Celebrate on your own.

Rest. Or dance your feet off.

Devote yourself with every atom to something that is precious to you.

Breathe in life and exhale love.

It’s a month that helps reconnect you to all that is important to your heart and happiness. It’s a month that helps you look back and see just how far you’ve come!

The second card I’ve chosen is Blessed. It’s a card whose primary message is for us to understand that we are truly loved, that prayers can be answered, goals can be realised and that miracles are possible.

“Reflect upon your present blessings — of which every man has many — not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.” 
~  Charles Dickens

Blessed reminds us of the importance of dreams that seem impossible to us but that still hold our hearts in thrall, of the existence of Angels and other beings who uplift us and love us at every moment of our lives, and of the great love that radiates out to us from beyond this lifetime we are living now. We are never, ever, alone.

We ourselves are miracles, simply by virtue of our existence. We are connected to All that Is. We are made of stardust and magic.

More than that, Blessed asks to us to believe that our lives can change for the better in a heartbeat; that synchronicities are not coincidences;  that setting intentions or offering prayers or meditations and requests for help all enact forces within the Universe that can manifest our dreams into reality.

In December reach out. Ask up. Open your heart to possibility. Trust.

Best crystals this month?

Clear Quartz and Unakite

Clear Quartz lifts your vibration and opens you to flow. It is a highly spiritual stone, encouraging self-reflection and is helpful for hearing messages and receiving signs or direction that can assist you on your journey

Image from https://mycrystalpedia.wordpress.com/c/clear-quartz/

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, and is a comforting and reassuring stone to hold or wear for people who suffer from social anxiety.

Image from http://www.crystalage.com/

Essential oils to support your journey?

Young Living’s Joy and Envision essential oil blends are my picks for December. Joy opens our hearts and helps us to re-engage with the flow of life. 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.


Want to make the most of your year in 2018?

Come to my Brisbane events on 15 and 16 December and join me for a night of channelling, or our weekend workshops. I’ll be teaching you how to connect into your inner truth to create and activate a vision board to bring your dreams into reality, and how to use tarot or oracle cards to gain clarity and insights for your life as you learn how to give a reading for yourself or others. We’ll also have a pop up shop filled with delicious crystals and other spiritual tools.  More details here.

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

Lots of love, Nicole❤ xoxo

The Energies of August – 2016

“If people knew how hard I had to work to gain my mastery, it would not seem so wonderful at all.”

Hello, Lovelies :)

Welcome to August. August is a month for knowing ourselves, for bettering ourselves and for furthering ourselves. As we act from a place of self-awareness and personal clarity things will begin to fall into place for us. Sure, the actions we need to take and the decisions we must make may not be easy, but all of them shall be leading us very clearly in the direction of our choosing. No more drifting. It’s time to commit or to walk away. Time to stick with something, or to choose something new. Coasting this month, or waiting to see how things turn out will just lead to further stuckness and confusion.

In everything you do this month, do it for yourself and not to please or placate others!

Cards for the Month:

I’ve chosen two cards for August 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:

“The warrior has awareness…we are aware that we are at war , and the war in our minds requires discipline. Not the discipline of a soldier but the discipline of a warrior. Not the discipline from the outside to tell us what to do and not to do, but the discipline to be ourselves, no matter what.”
~ Miguel Ruiz

August encourages us to own our Mastery and to work on deepening our knowledge and skills. We are better to specialise and to make one thing our own then to cast our nets widely and be a Jack or Jill Of All Trades.

Everyone has something that comes easily to them, or that they can do well. Often we discount that thing for the very reason that it came easily to us. In August don’t be so quick to talk down or overlook your natural gifts and talents. Is there anything you are ready to teach or share, even if it’s in the most small and humble of ways?

August brings awakening psychic energies, and a need for soul connection. It is also a month of unexpected magic, Universal assistance and breakthroughs.

There’s a flipside though. We are beginning to be aware of those areas of limitation – where we don’t naturally shine. August allows us to finally see that it’s our choice. We can work hard to build up those areas of weakness, or we can delegate them out to someone who does shine in that space, and who can complement and support our own gifts and talents.

“I can’t do everything, but I can do something.
I dedicate this month to what I can do.” ~ Nicole Cody

The second card I’ve chosen is Yang. This card reminds me a little of the Good Witch Glinda in the Wizard of Oz, telling Dorothy that the power was in her all along.

You have a magic in you. Something that is your own personal superpower. Something you do in a way that makes this thing uniquely your own. But that power is no good unexpressed.

August is giving you every encouragement to get out of your own way and launch your dreams, your business, your art, your images, your thoughts, yourself into the world.

Roll up your sleeves and get to work. If you do, all kinds of good stuff can be unleashed, including support and synchronicities.

Maybe it’s time to set up your own Instagram or Pinterest account. Maybe it’s time to set up your Etsy store or your website. Maybe it’s time to teach or blog or craft or simply to wear your magical red shoes when everyone else’s shoes are sensible black.

Be you. Magnificently and unashamedly you.

 

Best crystals this month?

Clear Quartz will activate your latent psychic abilities, and tune you in to your own soul wisdom. It enhances purpose and decision making, and is a great stone for all forms of communication.

This is a super stone to hold, to place in your pocket or to wear on the midline of your body as a pendant..

Aragonite Star Clusters are a nurturing stone that call back your scattered energy and help you to remain centred, grounded, clear and balanced, even as you radiate that focused energy outwards.

If you can’t find Aragonite, look for Septarian Nodules which have Aragonite as part of the conglomeration of this mixed stone. That’s an Aragonite Star Cluster in the photo below.

And this is a Septarian Nodule. The Aragonite is the dark brown mineral. Its companions are Golden Calcite and Siltstone.

Essential oils to support your journey?

Try this focus-enhancing diffuser blend of 3 drops of Rosemary, 3 drops of Basil, 3 drops of Orange and 2 drops of Lavender.  It’s fantastic for concentration, thinking and decision-making and for getting things done. If you feel ungrounded or really stressed add 2 drops of Cedarwood or Vetiver to calm you and bring you back into your body.  My fairy friend Sokli calls this her Ready to Work! blend.

August can be YOUR month. Why not gift yourself this month to truly explore where you can go with this one, beautiful, crazy, wild life of yours? Why not take a chance on YOU? Spend time with you. Hang out with yourself. Make big plans and be brave enough to DO THEM!

Sending all my love to you, Nicole ♥ xx
