Just Tell One Person…

“The key is this: Meet today’s problems with today’s strength. Don’t start tackling tomorrow’s problems until tomorrow. You do not have tomorrow’s strength yet. You simply have enough for today.” 
Max Lucado

Did you read yesterday’s post about the energy of this week? It’s a week of help coming our way, and of hope being restored, but first… first it’s a week that may be quite hard for some. It’s an energy where many of us will feel regret, remorse, guilt, shame, pain or sorrow as we look back on the past and realise that we can’t change it, or that we may need to let go of cherished dreams and plans we’ve long held for our future, leaving us with uncertainty as we look forward in life.

It’s also a week where we can come face-to-face with habits, behaviours and attitudes that are harming us, and where we know we need to change or get help because now we see what we are doing or what we are ignoring and we know we can’t keep living like this.

So, for those of you in that hard place – with shames you are hiding, and fears you are nursing – take the first step and tell someone you trust, or a stranger of good repute whose calling is to help people with the kind of problem that you do.

When we tell someone our truth we shed light on this difficult thing and we crack open the place from where it can begin to transform.

When we hold a secret to our chest it weighs us down more and more with every year. When we hold a secret to our chest and tell no-one of our plans to change it is easy to back out on the promises we made to ourselves. You only need to tell one person, to take one step, to open your circle of one into a circle of two.Two is where change happens, and hope returns. When someone else knows, the problem that has become beyond your ability to fix on your own suddenly has a chance to be healed.

Who can you tell this week? My wise old Nana always used to tell me that a problem shared is a problem halved, and the older I become the more I know it to be true.

Sending so much love your way, Nicole   xx

 

The Week Ahead – Oracle Reading for Monday 31 October

the Creator Osho Zen Tarot

“Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least.”
~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

 

Hello, Lovelies!

Welcome to a brand new week. 🙂

Here’s the oracle card I have chosen, and my take on the energetic outlook for the days ahead.

‘The Creator’ is from the Osho Zen Tarot deck – a deck I’ve been using for twenty years.

The week ahead is about refining our priorities and getting clear about what matters most right now. Understanding what matters most helps us to channel our precious and limited time and energy into activities and relationships that support the goals, values and outcomes dear to us.

Let me be clear:

This is not a week for stuffing around, doing everything for everyone else at the expense of yourself, wasting time on low-value tasks or low-value relationships, or failing to prioritise or make decisions.

There is so much power in this week if we are brave enough to make choices, to claim a direction, and to begin to take action in areas that matter to us.

Don’t waste the week by letting it roll by without you.

As you will read in tomorrow’s post, November is one of the best energies I’ve seen in years for going after what you want, for finding the idea that will make you money, for creating solid foundations for health, wealth, love, family and your particular passion. This week energetically sets you up to make the best of November by first getting clear about what matters now, and what will continue to matter into 2017.

It’s a week where you’re encouraged to make really bold decisions.

It’s a week where you’re asked to back yourself and your ideas and dreams.

It’s a fabulous week for finding a coach, launching an idea, starting or repackaging a business, signing up for study or specialised tuition, committing to taking your business to the next level, creating a plan to become more or to offer out into the world more that you do now.

It’s a week for taking back personal responsibility and holding yourself accountable for making change happen. Yep, that might feel odd if you haven’t sat in that space for a while, or if you’ve become used to letting everyone walk over you or take care of you. But ultimately to be able to trust yourself and your ability to look after your own needs will be empowering.

This is also a week for making a stand.

Ask for what you’re worth. Stand up for yourself, your loved ones, your passions, your rights. Give support to the causes dear to your heart.

Make that appointment with the doctor, bank manager, grief counsellor, relationship specialist, lawyer, tax accountant, psychologist, nutritionist.

Quit whatever is doing you harm. Alcohol, cigarettes, junk food, your jittery Red Bull habit, bad relationships, toxic situations, those two donuts you sneak with your coffee every morning and then regret all day. This week is fabulous for making lasting change that kicks off with a big personal decision.

This week is the beginning of a very big month, energetically speaking. The choices and actions you make this week (or fail to make) will have lasting repercussions. Do all you can to be good to yourself, and true to yourself and your values.

Supportive crystals this week? Clear Quartz, Amazonite and Citrine. Helpful essential oils? Young Living’s Clarity essential oil blend, or  a combination (or singly!) of any of Rosemary, Orange and Cedarwood.

Holding you in my thoughts, prayers and meditations,

All my love, Nicole <3 xx

Let the Teacher appear…

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined. ~ Henry David Thoreau

If you have a dream, chances are you’ll need help to get there. Whether you want to write a book, climb a mountain, win Olympic Gold, speak a new language or improve your health, your best bet will be to attract a good teacher into your life – one who will believe in you, and have the ability to help you to grow and to shine.

Sometimes the only thing that holds you back from success is not a lack of talent or good ideas, it’s a lack of knowledge, skills or techniques.  But that doesn’t have to be an obstacle – trust that there truly is someone or something out there in the Universe that can help you bridge that knowledge gap. Someone will have walked that road before you, and they’ll be willing to show you how to follow in their footsteps…

You might need a coach, a mentor or a teacher. Maybe a course or a book will help.  It might even be a job, a radio interview you just happen to tune in to, a magazine article or a useful suggestion from a stranger.

Know that the Universe is listening, and that it responds to your call.

Let the Universe know that you’re ready.  Ask for support.  Ask to be shown.  And then trust that the perfect person or information will show up in your life.

I’ve created a short guided meditation to faciltate this process, and help you draw that teacher or resource to you.  All you need to do is listen, and stay open to the possibility of help turning up in your life:
