Energies of June 2019

“An awake heart is like a sky that pours light.” 
~ Hafiz

Hello, Lovelies!

At the beginning of every month, I discuss the energies and gifts of the month ahead and how we can best use them to make our lives satisfying, meaningful and productive. I also choose a card to support the energies of the month. The deck I am using this year is The Good Tarot by Colette Baron-Reid, and June’s card is 8 of Fire.

June brings energies of growth and transformation. 

This month you can build on existing situations, foundations and opportunities, further transforming your life through work and self-belief. You’ll start to see results, and your progress will become visible to others too.

The power of teamwork and of focus can’t be overestimated this month. There are so many choices in front of you now, and you may feel like there are too many choices and that everything is moving past you too fast. 

If you feel like that, look for some quiet time amid the bustle and haste. Use nature and meditation to bring you back to calm. Choose just a few things on which to focus. 

Let the rest go for now, or delegate it to someone else. And get a team together – people who can help and support you. You’ll go so much further together than trying to get it all done on your own.

June puts an emphasis on your health, healing and wellbeing. Don’t let your health slide at the expense of your dreams and goals. Look at ways to work sustainably and get help wherever you can.

Make sure to get a health check, and to keep on top of all of the habits and choices that let you live your best life.

Leave a little time for celebration this month too. Don’t let everything be everyday ordinary. 

You don’t need a reason to celebrate – being alive is enough! 

Surround yourself with people who support and uplift you. 

Do things that make you feel alive. Celebrate others too. Share the joy around.

Fill your life with colour, love and passion. Trust in the journey and believe in good outcomes.

Best crystals this month?

Map Jasper and Peach Moonstone

Map Jasper

Map Jasper helps you to concentrate, analyse and understand. It supports the adrenals and counteracts overthinking and intellectual exhaustion. 

Peach Moonstone

Peach Moonstone encourages self-care, soothes worry, raises vibration and stimulates your capacity to problem solve using both intuition and reason.

Essential oils to support your journey?

My choice for oils that will support focus, clarity, planning and action 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 OrangeLavenderGeraniumFrankincense and Cinnamon Bark.

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

Want to get even deeper on your spiritual journey and psychic awakening?

Think about taking the last remaining place on my upcoming Temple of Light Shamanic Meditation RetreatMore details on that here.

Wishing you a satisfying journey this month. Make the most of it – these energies are life-changing and life enhancing.

Lots of love, Nicole xoxo

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.

My Favourite Crystals for Grounding

“In my opinion, it’s more interesting to see magic happening in a world that feels grounded. If the world is already crazy, then anything can happen. So it’s better to start with something real.” ~ Michel Gondry

Being grounded is all about being centered within our body, having a sense of calm, and enjoying a deep connection and engagement with the world around us. When we are grounded we make better decisions, we behave in ways that are more authentic, and we own our power.

But sometimes we become unsettled by life.  Too much sugar and caffeine, not enough sleep, stress, trauma, interacting with unbalanced people, hormonal imbalance, a big shock, taking other people’s energy into our own aura (healers are often guilty of this!) – any of these things can leave us feeling ungrounded.

Symptoms of being ungrounded include:

  • feeling vague and unable to focus
  • anxiety with no cause
  • sudden dizziness
  • falling asleep while meditating
  • ‘cranky and out of sorts’ that comes on for no reason
  • hungry but food doesn’t satisfy you
  • inability to sleep
  • heaviness in the body
  • feeling ‘spaced out’
  • emotional and over-reactive
  • craving sugar and junk food
  • nausea
  • mental confusion
  • inability to focus on simple tasks
  • feeling like someone just unplugged your power cord
  • sudden exhibition of the same unpleasant thoughts or emotions of someone you were recently with

* Please be aware that some of these symptoms are also signs of a more serious illness.  Use your best judgement, and if in doubt, always seek medical advice.

I’ve written about ways to stay grounded or to move back into that grounded energy here:

Staying Grounded in Uncertain Times

However, when faced with a situation where one of my students or clients needs to get grounded fast, I am a big fan of rocks.  Crystals are super grounding tools, and so easy to use.  All you need to do is hold one, wear one or slip one into your pocket.

Here are some of my favourite grounding stones:

Black Tourmaline

I just love this stone! It is so powerful it can slam you back into your body fast, but gee, it never feels rough or violent.  It’s so gentle in the way that it treats you that I find it perfect for children, sensitive souls and those people experiencing deep emotional turmoil.  It also anchors your into your Earth Star Chakra (about 12 to 18 inches below your feet) and keeps your Earth Star Chakra open and connected into the earth. I never leave home without one…

A tourmalinated quartz will do a similar job, although less powerfully, but it will also keep your aura shielded, strong and bright.

Jasper

Who doesn’t love jasper?  There are so many varieties of this earthy stone, and all of them will work with grounding you, so I always advise you to choose what you’re attracted to or what strongly repels you.

Jasper helps you feel at home in your body, and at home in the world. It is wonderful for transmuting negativity and heavy emotions, replacing them with a sense of wellbeing and emotional balance. It realigns your chakras and ‘snaps you into place’.

Jasper is gentle, and it takes a little while for the affects to be felt, but that’s why I favour it for people with long-term imbalances like anxiety and depression, ADD, ADHD, post traumatic stress, bi-polar or chronic illness.  It has a strong mothering energy, and it is a superb nurturer.

I’ve included some charts of the various jaspers below – as you can see, there are many beautiful stones to choose from.

Bloodstone

Bloodstone is actually a base form of chalcedony and the red spots that look like blood, hence giving this stone its name, are dots of iron oxide or blood red jasper (see jasper above).

Bloodstone is a crystal I use a lot with clients who are are suffering the effects of toxicity – be that toxins from diet (sugars, artificial sweeteners, chemicals etc), the effects of being in a toxic relationship or working/living with toxic people, or toxins from long-term illness, infections or pathogens.

This crystal gives courage, and aids mental and emotional clarity.  It strongly detoxifies your physical, emotional and energetic bodies, and allows you to gain strength and energy.  It anchors and connects your heart, base and earth star chakra, and strongly gets you ‘out of your head and into your heart’. Bloodstone helps you stand firmly  in your own truth.

Green Aventurine

When you’re overwhelmed, jaded, broken-hearted, exhausted and at the end of your rope Green Aventurine is a perfect grounding stone for you. This stone is a variety of quartz, with fuschite and mica inclusions.

Green Adventurine cuts through misery and enables us to feel joy again.  It helps us to remember that we are in a body (as opposed to living bogged down in feelings or emotions) and it is very healing for the nervous system, lymph and circulation.

A positive side affect of this stone, besides grounding us back into our bodies and opening us up to joy again, is that we often feel inclined to eat better, to exercise and enjoy the benefits of living in a body.  It helps re-engage us with the physical aspect of ourselves and the world around us.

It is also strongly connected to the Devic Kingdom and Fairy Realms. Needless to say, most children adore this stone!

Septarian Nodules

This attractive combination of minerals include aragonite, calcite, chalcedony, limestone and mudstone (the grey muddy bits!).  Septarian Nodules aren’t for beginners.  I use them to rebalance people who have become ‘unbalanced’ doing psychic work, energetic healing, counselling or within a therapy-based business.

They clear our psychic connection, anchor us into our base and earth star chakras, clear out and balance ALL chakras, and help us to come back to ‘true’. Awesome for clearing energies and entities from our aura just by holding the stone.

* Not for prolonged or daily use.  See this as part of your emergency toolkit.

Unakite

Unakite combines a form of red jasper with epidote (the green part of the stone).  I use this stone for grounding people who are emotionally distressed after experiencing disruptive family or home life.

It is brilliant for anyone (including children!) going through relationship breakups, relationship transitions or life transitions.  It encourages strength, openness and optimism.  It is very restorative for the physical body and encourages healthy sleep patterns.

Pearls

I know you’re probably shrugging your shoulders here, wondering why I have included pearls, as they are an ocean ‘stone’.  But I love the gentle mothering energy of pearls and mother-of-pearl.  It is perfect for babies, the elderly, the dying, anyone who is very weak or frail, and for souls whose point of origin is starseed (ie not from Earth).

Pearls connect us to the wider cosmos, and help us feel at home in the greater scheme of things.  They also gently connect us into our Higher Selves, helping us to feel connected, grounded and expanded.
