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

Stones, Crystals and Meditation Magic

“The soul always knows what to do to heal itself. The challenge is to silence the mind.” ~ Caroline Myss

 

I have long been a meditator. In fact it has been a daily practice for me since adolescence. Even with my recent bout of ill-health I haven’t missed a day. It’s as much a part of my life as sleeping or breathing.

As I was walking along the beach on Monday morning I came upon a particular rock. It’s just a stone. But it holds the energies of the ocean and the earth. It is an anchoring stone. And it comes from Byron Bay, which is a place of great healing and transformation. As I held it in my hand I knew that I would meditate with it, and that this stone would hold those energies in a way that could be transferred to someone else.

Which gave me an idea…

I have decided to dedicate a meditation each day of the month to a chosen stone and a crystal companion. The stone becomes the Anchoring Stone, which helps us to stay grounded, clear and calm, connecting into our bodies, and to the earth and nature. The crystal becomes the Connection Stone, enabling us to connect into our intuition, Higher Self, Guides, Ancestors and the Divine.

I will use the energies of the month to support me as I meditate with intention, infusing the stones with that energy.

Here are the stones I will work with every day in July:

The energies and intention I will infuse into the Byron Bay Beach Rock will be that the holder comes to know and understand their body and how to honour and take care of it to give lasting health and wellbeing. This knowledge will also contribute to a state of inner calm and of self-care.

The energies and intention I shall infuse into the Tasmanian Quartz Crystal will be a deep connection to the user’s ancestral line, intuition, Guides, Angels, the Divine – facilitating a stronger understanding of the user’s individual talents and gifts, and those that have been passed down through their ancestral lineage. All of this will help to give clarity of life path.

My team will devise a new competition each month to enable someone from our Cauldrons and Cupcakes community to win the stones as well as a meditation recorded just for them.

All of the love and energy and intention that I pour into these stones daily will then be available for the user in their own meditation. It’s also okay if you’ve never meditated before. I’ll send you instructions!

I’m so glad that this idea found me, so that the right stones can find you.

We’ll post more details soon.

Hugs and love, Nicole ❤ xoxo

A Last Charge for Some Special Stones

2016-02-27 08.44.36

“One is not loved accidentally; one’s own power to love produces love – just as being interested makes one interesting. People are concerned with the question of whether they are attractive while they forget that the essence of attractiveness is their own capacity to love. To love a person productively implies to care and to feel responsible for his life, not only for his physical existence but for the growth and development of all his human powers. To love productively is incompatible with being passive, with being an onlooker at the loved person’s life; it implies labor and care and the responsibility for his growth.”
~ Erich Fromm, Man for Himself: An Inquiry into the Psychology of Ethics

 

I have a retreat starting this Friday. Accelerated Channeling. It’s a retreat I have been preparing for since last year.

So much love and devotion goes into the preparation for each participant, as well as the event in its entirety. I meditate for each participant twice a day, for a month before the event and a month after.

I have had a group of crystals charging on the earth on my farm for months. They have been witness to solar and lunar eclipses and other such astrological events. They have been rained on and bathed in sunlight and moonlight. They are being readied as working tools for my retreat, one for each student, and a couple of extras as gifts.

Today, to finish them off before I place them into their little bags, ready for new owners, I shall take them all for a swim in the ocean. Then they will have energy from earth, water, salt, sky and all of the celestial bodies. As well as the little birds who have danced among them.

I’d show you a picture of them but that would spoil the surprise for my students.

So, here’s a batch I prepared earlier.

I have one more retreat offering this year, in July. And there are just a few spaces left. I’ll tell you all about that tomorrow, but right now I have to take me and some rocks for a beach swim.

Much love,

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.

Crystals to Help With the Current 2015 Energies

2013-04-04 10.54.00

“Theologians may quarrel, but the mystics of the world speak the same language.”
~ Meister Eckhart

 

Are you feeling it? This wild, crazy energy we’re sitting in right now. If you’re the slightest bit spiritually or psychically sensitive you’ll know what I mean.

Of course, each of us will be impacted differently, and we may experience a number of sensations or emotions over a given day, or a week. So I’ve put together a little crystal First Aid Kit that you might find useful or comforting right now.

Below you’ll find my crystal recommendations and suggestions for use. I’ve also included suggestions for children and pets, because they are so often sensitive to these shifting energies. You can pop the stone in your pocket, place it by your bed or desk, hold it when you meditate, or even wear it as jewelry. Small tumbled stones will work as well as large stones – just go with what you’re drawn to. We’ve chosen stones that should be relatively easy for you to find, or that may already be in your collections!

Red Jasper 

Red Jasper is a handy stone for physical strength and stamina, for supporting tired adrenals, and for anchoring us securely in our bodies so that all our chakras are aligned. It is a reassuring and grounding stone that also alleviates all the base chakra stuff – worries around personal security, money, family issues, and safety needs.

A good stone for anxious children, or people who need to face the world when they’d rather be snuggled under the doona back at home.

Lapis Lazuli

If you’re feeling a huge expansion of your psychic and energetic abilities, but you’re unstable in that energy, then Lapis Lazuli will help you to relax into safely opening up to your psychic self.

Lapis is also highly shielding and protective – a little like wearing a psychic force-field around you that stops you picking up the lower vibration energies of other people or places. A super stone for empaths and people who are healers and helpers.

Smoky Quartz

Smoky Quartz is a brilliant stone for transmuting negative energies and fears. If you’re scattered, confused, troubled, or feeling deeply upset by the turbulent energies right now then Smoky Quartz will gently reassert a sense of protection and safety. It also acts as an antenna, helping to clear and strengthen your energetic connection to Guides and others with whom you may work. A powerful stone for getting out of your head and connecting into your own truth and wisdom.

This is also a great stone for children who overthink things, who obsess, or who worry in ways that effect sleep or eating.

If your cat is going a little crazy, place a piece of smoky quartz where they sleep.

Amethyst

Amethyst will restore a sense of sacred balance, shifting you from your head to your heart centre. It is a profoundly giving and nurturing stone that helps anchor you in compassion and kindness. If you’re feeling cranky and impatient, or more judgmental than usual (especially of yourself!) then Amethyst will help with that. It also aids in peaceful sleep, meaningful dreams, and spiritual connection. It will allow you to begin trusting your intuition, and it will strengthen that ability within you.

This is a great stone for children with bright minds and imaginations who can get carried away with worrying about the future.

It is also a stone for calling in Angels and Ancestors. A beautiful stone to place in the bedding of old or ill pets, as it helps with peaceful passing.

Petrified Wood

If these current energies are upsetting your digestion, your hormone levels or your sleep patterns, so that you feel uncomfortable, bloated, listless or out of sorts, then Petrified Wood will help you body to restore its natural balance.

It is a gentle detoxifier, and is very good for grounding us in times of uncertainty and stress. It’s also a perfect stone for those of you who give to excess, leaving yourself drained and energetically unstable.

Use this one for pets who frighten easily, or who are jittery, anxious or frightened. Also good for children who are feeling anxious, unusually shy or overwhelmed.

Labradorite

If you’re feeling muddled, distracted, and like you’ve lost the plot, then Labradorite will sort out your frazzled brain and restore your confidence and direction. If you started strong this year, then promptly fizzled out or fell in a heap from this crazy energy, Labradorite will recalibrate your vibration and get you from variance to synchronicity. It’s also a stunning stone for spiritual nurture and connection.

For older children who need support with their learning and studies, and for you, if there’s lots to do but you feel like your brain left the building, Labradorite is the perfect stone for you right now.

Clear Quartz

For connecting psychically, for powerful meditations, for channeling, psychic connection and riding these energies with confidence, Clear Quartz will get you there.

A great stone for enhancing spiritual dreams, and for any kind of writing, planning or thinking. It will amplify your connection and give you confidence and clarity.
