Forgiveness As A Path To Freedom – Monday Oracle 26 March 2018

“We don’t realize that, somewhere within us all, there does exist a supreme self who is eternally at peace.” 
―Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

 

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 Three of Swords brings us.

This week’s energies support forgiveness. Three of Swords asks us to sit in compassion and empathy, having understanding for ourselves, for our actions and for the actions of others.

Forgiveness is seldom about the other person. It is an act that sets us free – free from the emotional entanglement, the pain, the hold that the person or situation has on us.

Of course Three of Swords helps us to find forgiveness in our hearts for others this week, but most importantly it helps us to step into a place of compassion and forgiveness for ourselves. Whatever we have or haven’t done, whoever we have or haven’t been, we are asked to let that go and to simply sit with the truth of what is in this moment. There is an enormous freedom that comes with forgiveness. That kind of freedom creates possibilities for us to move past old hurts and disappointments so that we can move in entirely new directions.

It’s a week for emotional breakthroughs, relief and embracing that liberating energy of moving on.

 

Supportive crystals this week?

Clear Quartz amplifies intuition and our ability to tune in to Universal and Personal Wisdom. Amazonite helps us to live bravely, defending and protecting what is important to us. Blue Lace Agate helps us speak our truth and Green Chrysoprase (pictured) opens our heart and helps with emotional healing and self-acceptance.

Helpful essential oils?

I’m loving Young Living’s Forgiveness oil blend this week. Its scent is soothing and uplifting. This blend has 16 different essential oils in it, and resonates to a very high frequency. I often use it on my retreats to facilitate the release of trauma and to help students overcome fear, shame, heartbreak and emotional burdens around betrayal, abuse and abandonment. Place a few drops on soles of feet, wrists, over heart, base of spine and back of neck to help you release negative energy and emotion and move back into a heart-centred space.

Want to make your own blend? Lavender keeps us in flow and relaxed, Angelica invites inner peace and a sense of safety, Frankincense elevates our mood and promotes spiritual connection and intuition and Ylang Ylang opens our hearts and is supportive when we feel anxious or overwhelmed. 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

PS: Monday’s oracle card, ‘Three of Swords’, 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. 

 

The Energies of June – 2017

“For true love is inexhaustible; the more you give, the more you have. And if you go to draw at the true fountainhead, the more water you draw, the more abundant is its flow.”
~ Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Hello, Lovelies :)

Suddenly, here we are at June. June is a gentle month of revitalisation, redirection and emotional and physical nourishment. I’m so up for that. How about you?

 

Cards for the Month:

I’ve chosen two cards for June 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:

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
~ Anaïs Nin

“The lotus is the most beautiful flower, whose petals open one by one. But it will only grow in the mud. In order to grow and gain wisdom, first you must have the mud — the obstacles of life and its suffering. … The mud speaks of the common ground that humans share, no matter what our stations in life. … Whether we have it all or we have nothing, we are all faced with the same obstacles: sadness, loss, illness, dying and death. If we are to strive as human beings to gain more wisdom, more kindness and more compassion, we must have the intention to grow as a lotus and open each petal one by one. ”
~ Goldie Hawn

June lifts us to a higher awareness around our past. It’s a time to lift up out of adversity and to trust in new directions. No need to agonise anymore. It’s easy to let go and move on. It’s time to tell ourselves a better story based on our past – one that is helpful and liberating, rather than one which keeps us trapped.

We begin to move into flow and things just start working more easily for us. We’re encouraged to work with others and to create teams and tribes, to share our stories and to share what we know in service to others. Joy for life infuses each cell of our body.

It’s a month that suits working on our physical and emotional health, and it’s a super time for detoxing, starting a new eating plan or getting your body moving again – all from a place of profound love and self-acceptance of what has been as well as allowing of what may come.

It’s an incredible month for psychic connection and for all forms of art, movement, music and writing. Expect divine inspiration and flow of ideas and support. Quite simply, it’s a month of magical connection and shift!

 

The second card I’ve chosen is To The Sea. What a beautiful image of hope, restoration and direction.

“May what I do flow from me like a river, no forcing and no holding back, the way it is with children.”
~ Rainer Maria Rilke

When we trust and step forward into the flow of life, that flow will carry us forward – out of stuckness, out of the old – and in directions we may possibly have never imagined for ourselves.

The river started as a small trickle. That trickle followed its true nature and kept moving. Soon it became a river. Unstoppable. With a momentum and power all its own.

When you jump into the river, the river will carry you. To The Sea reminds us that life is a mystery, and the secret to life is to be in flow with it.

How do you do that? How do you be in flow?
Stop thinking so much and start trusting. Feel into things. Act from intuition. Listen to your heart. Practice kindness with yourself, and check in often to work out how you truly feel and what sparks of interest or action lie within you. Follow those sparks.

In June, trust in the bigger picture. Trust your senses. Take a risk on what you want. See where life takes you!

Best crystals this month?

Blue Quartz and Green Chrysoprase

 Blue Quartz  is a profoundly calming stone that opens us to a state of flow and grace. Excellent for helping us to speak up. Supports throat and third eye chakras.

Green Chrysoprase opens our heart to love, joy, self acceptance and deep compassion for self and others. It also dissolves blocks to abundance in all forms.

Essential oils to support your journey?

Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own for you this month, but they also make a delicious combination for diffusing. The essential oils you will find helpful in June are Ylang Ylang, Geranium, Frankincense, and Orange. Ylang Ylang helps lift our mood so we can see new possibilities for ourselves and our lives, Geranium reduces anxiety and promotes emotional balance and healing, Frankincense connects us to our intuition and to the Divine, and Bergamot supports physical wellbeing, releases emotional pain and helps us to move forward with joy. To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser. You can find the oils here.

June is a marvellous month for us to move back into flow, to heal, to grow and to thrive.

Stay connected to what matters most to you, follow your heart, and make some time to enjoy life’s pleasures and those special relationships in your life.

Lots of love, Nicole❤ xoxo
