Monday Oracle 19 November 2018

“There’s no point having wishes if you don’t at least try to do them
~  Sally Nicholls

 

Hello, Lovelies!

November  is  an  unusual  month, gifting  us  energies  in  two  different  but interlinked areas. The first area is spiritual development. It’s a great month for all forms of metaphysical work, for clarifying our Life Path and for honouring a life-calling by owning our capacity to share knowledge. The second area is our connection to the natural world, and to the nature spirits of the Earth.Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card The Fairy Godmother brings us.

This week we are reminded not to despair. No matter what we are facing, no matter how long the road in front of us may be, no matter what obstacles we face from outside us or within us, The Fairy Godmother card appears to us with a message of hope.

Take some time this week to reconnect with your dreams. Know that you’re being called to keep these dreams alive. Tap into inspiration. Clear some time to work on those dreams of yours. Expect that inspiration will flow, that clarity will come, and that miracles have a good chance of showing up on your doorstep. Be brave and take some creative and professional risks. Trust in good outcomes.

The Fairy Godmother reminds us that we don’t have to do it all on our own. In this new post-2012 era we’re living in energies that support collaboration, co-operation, community and connection. Ask for help, or be the Fairy Godmother for someone else this week and help them with reaching their dreams!

Magic abounds this week. It’s a great time for innovation, for luck, for charm and good fortune. Trust that the right people and the right objects or projects will come your way. Your intuitive and empathic abilities will also be heightened so pay attention and trust your instincts. Most importantly keep the flame of your dreams alive and burning brightly in your heart.

Supportive crystals this week?

Que Sera (Vulcanite) lifts your vibration and enables you to merge with your own soul knowledge. It’s a stone for personal and spiritual empowerment. Garnet connects you into the fairy realms, to trees and the earth and all nature spirits. It also helps you to sit in a vibration of wealth and abundance. 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 you really need. Orange Calcite (pictured) connects you to inspiration and is a wonderful beginner stone for tuning in to the spiritual realms. It’s also great for all forms of creativity. 

Helpful essential oils?

Patchouli essential oil grounds you and opens you to your Higher Self and intuitive wisdom in a gentle and reassuring way. Cedarwood essential oil enhances all forms of spiritual connection, and creates awareness of the natural world and the energies of nature. Arborvitae creates spiritual trust and is grounding and opening – it’s one of my favourite oils, especially when I meditate (use it with a couple of drops of Frankincense and you’ll be flying in your meditations too!). Use these oils in a diffuser, rub on soles of feet or simply drop some into your palms, rub together and inhale.

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

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, ‘The Fairy Godmother’, 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.

Welcome to Week One of the Strengthening Intuition Program!

Please immediately purchase or find the following things:

  • a deck of tarot cards
  • a big crystal ball
  • various small crystals of your choice
  • a unicorn horn
  • a cape made of black velvet
  • a book of spells
  • an owl, versed in Wizardry and all things Hogwarts
  • a selection of candles

Just kidding. (And my apologies if you are now disappointed.  Even I feel a little disappointed about the lack of owls… )

That’s better!  A particularly wise and spooky-looking owl.  Image from googleimages.com

Over the next eight weeks all we are going to work with is what we were born with – our own inner guidance system!

So, what are the real tools of Intuitive Connection?  For the Beginner I would suggest:

  • Awareness
  • Sensitivity
  • An open mind
  • The capacity to think, feel and reflect
  • Breathing, relaxing and observing

You were born with a capacity to sense and gather information beyond what your five senses can glean.  You were born to be able to tune in to energy fields around people and places. You were born with with the ability to listen to your heart’s wisdom, and your soul’s, as well as to the thoughts and musings of your conscious mind.

Yes, we can use divination tools, crystals, cards and so on, but then we’re relying on things outside ourselves. It’s always best to start with the basics, don’t you think?

Activity:

This week, we are going to focus on paying attention.  Mostly, we live in our heads.  Our thoughts are a constant chatter that distracts us from hearing the deeper wisdom within us. I want you to move past that sort of chatter this week.

Think of it as like diving into a lake. Our thoughts are the surface – in constant motion, and affected by wind and tide and whatever passes across the top of the water.  But when we go below the surface, things become quiet and calm.  It’s a whole other world.

This week your role is to be an Aware Observer. I highly recommend carrying a small notebook or journal to record your insights and observations.  Be open to any messages, insights, ideas or hunches you have.

  1. Pay attention to what your body is telling you.  Notice when it tenses up or when it relaxes.  Even pay attention to the feedback it gives you about diet, sleep and exercise.
  2. Notice your emotional state in various situations. Don’t judge it – explore it!  Ask yourself what’s going on, and then let ideas and answers just float into your conscious awareness.
  3. Pay attention to your choice of words, your body language and your physical and emotional energy levels. What sparks this? Why? What’s going on?  Keep asking questions, and once again just be open to whatever comes into your awareness.
  4. And finally, don’t edit yourself.  Let the ideas, feelings and emotions flow and don’t censor or try to control what comes up.  Your only job is to be an observer.  The more you are able to sit as an aware observer in your own life, the more your natural intuitive energies will be strengthened.

A Final Note:

No owls in this video, but it’s still really cool… These starlings fly in incredible formations, all without a single crash or mishap.  What guides them? Intuition.

It’s a force available to us all.

Just for a moment, imagine that you could move through life like that; with such freedom, trust and connection.

How to become more intuitive…

“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.” ~ Albert Einstein

All of us are intuitive but many of us become dominated by our minds, and as I often tell my clients, over-thinking chokes off our natural intuitive wisdom.

For those of us who have become used to living in our minds, connecting into this natural wisdom, and the flow of energy and information all around us can seem like an impossible task. But I promise you, intuition is your birth right – and the ability to be intuitive resides within every living thing.

Simple steps for increasing intuition:

The most important thing we can do in our daily lives to foster the development of our intuition is to make time for connection.  For some people this will be the first step in opening up to psychic abilities as well. It is vital that we get out of our heads and back into our bodies.

  • Drink more water – being hydrated always enhances connection.
  • Turn off the computer and the television and sit in silence.  This can be further improved by taking time to sit in nature.
  • Practice tuning in – by bring your conscious focus to something and then relaxing and stilling your mind, allowing yourself to become open to any impressions or information you might receive. (I know this can be incredibly hard at first for head-dominated people but it will get easier.)
  • Meditate.
  • Eat a diet rich in natural, fresh foods, which are full of vibrant energy and that clean up our own vibration.
  • Get enough sleep.
  • Avoid substances that dull our sensitivity, or that ramp it up in unnatural ways – such as caffeine, sugar, alcohol, recreational drugs – all of these inhibit true intuitive connection.

Guided Meditation to increase your intuitive ability

I’ve recorded a simple guided meditation to help you to soften and open up to your own intuitive connection. All you need to do is set aside ten minutes where you won’t be disturbed, and then close your eyes and listen to my voice.

Nicole Cody’ Guided Meditation for Developing Psychic Connection

With practice, you will find that intuition will begin to inform you, and better connect you into life and everything around you. You may also find that your abilities begin to go beyond just intuition, and into the realms of the metaphysical. (And if they do, I have tools and teachings for that too.)  Trust. Know that you are a spiritual BEing, made of pure source energy, living within a human body. All you ever have to do is relax, open and allow.

Much love to you. ♥♥♥
