A Week For Self-Care! Monday Oracle 4 June 2018

““We are all butterflies. Earth is our chrysalis.” 
~  LeeAnn Taylor

 

Hello, Lovelies!

June is a quieter month energetically – one that invites us to spend time with loved ones, time on ourselves and our wellbeing, and time resting, recharging and doing what we love. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card Seven of Wands brings us.

This week we’re encouraged to make choices that support our healing and rejuvenation journey. Think extreme self-care! This isn’t just about diet and exercise, although making healthy choices and being more active is always a good idea.

For some people what will be needed most this week is early nights.

For others it might be a massage, or spending some time on personal maintenance – you know; having a manicure, getting your hair done or buying some new clothes. A little strategic pampering can go a long way this week.

What you might need most this week is a walk on the beach, a night staying up late listening to your favourite music, or a trip to the movies.

You might even need to do some unpleasant things that will ultimately benefit you, such as going to the dentist, getting your will made or seeking legal advice.

Whatever you decide, make choices that support you and help you to feel nourished, loved, uplifted and cared for – especially for all of you who spend the majority of your time looking after everybody else.

Supportive crystals this week?

Smoky Quartz keeps you grounded, gifting inner strength and the ability to
listen deeply to your own needs. Labradorite (pictured) encourages self-care, supports empathy and intuition, and is a gentle and reassuring stone for developing psychic ability. Rose Quartz is extremely nurturing, helping you to act and speak kindly and lovingly towards yourself. 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?

Geranium is my choice 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 essence. It will uplift you and stimulate creativity, sensuality and emotional flow. 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)

If you’re completely strung out then Lavender Essential Oil will calm your mind and body. Use in the same way as outlined above for Geranium Essential Oil.

 You can find the oils here.

July Workshops and Pop Up Shop:
If you’re looking for some extra support for your spiritual journey come check out my upcoming Pop Up Shop, Channelling Night and One Day Workshops in Brisbane 29 June to July. On Saturday June 30 I’ll be teaching Foundation Spiritual Practices (the things I used to develop my own psychic and intuitive skills, self-awareness and compassion), and on Sunday July 1 I’ll teach Meditation and Mala Making (this second workshop is brilliant if you are feeling stressed and overwhelmed, stuck or suffering from anxiety or depression). No matter what level you’re at I’ll have something for you on my program. More details 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, ‘Seven of Wands’, 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. 

A Week For Increasing Emotional Contentment – Monday Oracle 7 May 2018

“Dare to love yourself
as if you were a rainbow
with gold at both ends.”

~  Aberjhani

 

Hello, Lovelies!

I’m still bedbound with the flu but am slowly improving. Another week in bed and hopefully I’ll be back on my feet again, fingers crossed. Luckily May is a month that empowers us to take the long view of our goals, and to make decisions and take actions that support those goals. Knowing that has helped me to take the pressure off myself and to use this downtime for longer-range planning and dreaming, in between naps of course! May supports sustainable action, and working towards our goals and dreams bit by bit, step by step. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card Ten of Hearts brings us.

The number one message of this card for the week ahead is that when we move to a place of emotional or spiritual contentment our minds open, our psychic senses are strengthened and goodness and inspiration flow. Make sure to schedule some time for planning or working on your dreams this week – then crank up your favourite music and use any other props (think incense, cups of tea, going for a surf, heading to a cafe or library, walk outside etc) that get you in a positive frame of mind – and let the creativity and new ideas flow. Equally, take time to kick back with the people you love, to connect with something or someone heart and soul, and to truly enjoy some quality down-time this week too.

Can you see how the Mermaid is riding a turtle in the Ten of Hearts? Here’s our reminder – going slowly is okay, as long as we are heading in a direction that is satisfying for us. The journey is as important as the destination. So how can you make your journey more enjoyable? What lights you up and fills you up? Plan to do more of that this week, or start to make the decisions that will bring these things into your life during the year.

If you’ve been looking for a sign as to whether a new relationship, idea or business will work for you take this as an indication that the answer is YES.

Ten of Hearts shows us that no matter where we are on the journey we need to find situations, relationships and actions that are meaningful to us. Life is so short and so precious. It will always have bumpy bits but as much as possible we need to find a way to enjoy the ride, no matter what our current circumstances or the past we are leaving behind.

Supportive crystals this week?

Orange Calcite connects us to inspiration and is a wonderful beginner stone for tuning in to the spiritual realms. It’s great for all forms of creativity. Amethyst helps us to tune in to all forms of spiritual guidance and also helps us to manifest and become clear about our life path. Smoky Quartz helps us let go of old hurts, old pains and old ideas/situations/dreams so we can move forward without regret, and finally any kind of Geode will be great this week for amplifying joy and abundance in our lives. A geode is a little ‘cave’ or hollow filled with smaller crystals. The one pictured is an Amethyst Geode!

 

Helpful essential oils?

I’m loving Geranium again 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 essence. It will uplift you and stimulate creativity, sensuality and emotional flow – all energies that are great for shifting us into a more creative 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.

Revitalization Week Ahead! Monday Oracle 9 April 2018

Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the single candle will not be shortened.” 
~ “The Teaching of Buddha.” 

 

Hello, Lovelies!

April is a month that brings a delicious flow of new ideas and inspiration. Your job is to honour this flow, making room for change in your life and for acting on these ideas and inspired thoughts. If you’ve lacked direction you’ll be glad to know that April gifts you sudden flashes of insight and clarity. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card Eight of Wands brings us.

This week brings revitalisation of our creative essence. In fact, it brings revitalisation of our very life force.

Let your intuition guide you this week. Pay attention to the rhythms of your body. For some of you this means surrendering to deep rest. Grab an early night or two, dial down your commitments, do less. I know – you might need to fight the familiar panic that comes up when you have so much to do and now I’m asking you to slow down or even stop! But who makes good decisions or creates their best work when they are as sharp as a beachball? A few days of unplugging and good rest will have you back on your game again, refreshed and so much more alive with ideas and possibilities than you are right now.

For some of you this is the week to bunker down with that project or idea you’ve been dancing around. The ideas will flow. You’ll find yourself incredibly productive. Don’t worry about being balanced this week – give yourself to the creative whirlwind and go your hardest.

How do you tell which situation best suits you? Close your eyes, take a deep breath and relax your body. Now tune in. Are you teetering on the edge of exhaustion or is there plenty of juice left in your tank? Go by your true energy level. If you’re fatigued rest up first – you’ll still be able to finish the week strong.

This is also a week for finding teachers, mentors and sources of inspiration, and for being that creative light for others too. Inspire and let yourself be inspired.

Then get back to me and tell me what happened for you this week. I just know some of you are going to have enormous productivity, breakthroughs and important realisations!

Supportive crystals this week?

Clear Quartz amplifies intuition and your ability to tune in to Universal and Personal Wisdom. It’s a great stone to enable you to understand at a soul level what your body really needs. Amazonite helps you to live bravely, defending and protecting what is important to you, especially in regard to your creative projects. Red Jasper will keep you grounded as the ideas flow, and gift you stamina and resilience if you end up burning the candle at both ends. Fluorite (pictured below) taps you into your innate creativity, fires up your inspiration and helps you to be honest, objective and innovative with your work.  

Helpful essential oils?

Hands down it’s 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 essence. It will uplift you and stimulate creativity, sensuality and emotional flow – all energies that are great for shifting us into a more creative 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.

Opening Our Hearts to Love -Monday Oracle 5 March 2018

“She warned him not to be deceived by appearances, for beauty is found within.”
― Narrator, Beauty and the Beast

 

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! Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of awareness which the oracle card Beauty and the Beast brings us.

Beauty and the Beast is the Inner Child Deck’s take on the traditional Strength card in traditional tarot. This week we are reminded to open our hearts to love. Love is not always what movies and books tell us to look for. (My Nana had great relationship advice – you can read more about that here.) Love is not always romance – dinners out, chocolates and roses, soul mates, steamy sex. Love is also the partner who picks us up after a late night function so we can get home safely, love is the exhausted mother who still takes time to pack nutritious school lunches, it’s the parent who pays attention to the ‘Look at me’ from their child for the hundredth time that morning, it’s the teacher who makes an effort to write an encouraging comment on a report, no matter what grades the student received, the friend who sits with us when our life has turned upside-down, the partner who assembles the flat pack or the kids’ Christmas presents until three in the morning even though we were the one who chose it.

Love is the care with which your barista makes your coffee, the way your pet gazes at you, the way your Mum’s mashed potatoes always taste better than yours.

Love is when you stay up to listen to one more song even though you have an early day tomorrow because the music speaks to your heart, or when you lose yourself in a project. It’s the satisfaction you feel when you’ve arranged a bunch of flowers, put clean sheets on your bed and made your room just so, sucked in a lungful of salty air at the seaside, watched a perfect sunrise.

Love is what fills you up, and what moves you. It’s laughter and shared moments, acts of kindness and service, it’s loving people just as they are.

Love is life, and this week the energies support us living and feeling deeply. It’s a week to kindle gratitude and compassion in our hearts, a week for healing and moving on, a week for trusting and opening out to the world again.

This little video captures that energy perfectly.

Supportive crystals this week?

Clear Quartz amplifies your intuition and your ability to tune in to Universal and Personal Wisdom. Amazonite (pictured) helps us to live from our heart and to tune into our innermost desires. 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. Green Aventurine supports us to be playful, joyful and optimistic about life

Helpful essential oils?

I’m loving Young Living’s Geranium this week. This sweet uplifting oil helps us to open our hearts, to find our enthusiasm and optimism and promotes peace and emotional wellbeing. Use it as a perfume or diffuse it. Add few drops added to your bath make for magical self-care.

Want to make your own blend? Each of these oils work well with Geranium: Lavender keeps us in flow and relaxed, Orange is uplifting, busts stress and helps us overcome self-doubt, Lemon is refreshing and supportive – it helps us overcome cynicism and move to a place of optimism and trust in the Universe and Jasmine opens us to intuition and spiritual guidance. To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser. You can find the oils here.
