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.

Monday Oracle – 5 February 2018

“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” 
Antoine de Saint-ExupéryThe Little Prince

 

Hello, Lovelies!

In February we are building on the strength and intuitive connection we found for ourselves at the beginning of the year. February brings opportunities for planning, learning and growing in order to bring about positive change. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of awareness which the oracle card Seeker of Hearts brings us.

This week we open to the understanding that it’s okay to live from our heart, to come from our truth, and to honour our emotions. The Seeker of Hearts reminds us that when we are brave enough to show our true self and feel our feelings magic begins to happen in our lives. Tell people how you feel. Allow yourself to be moved by art or beauty or kindness. Offer forgiveness or friendship to others. Looking for love? Seeker of Hearts encourages you to put yourself out there and to trust that you can find a new relationship. Let your heart lead the way.

The Seeker of Hearts will also show you where you need to protect your heart or call it back to yourself.

Pour your heart into what you love this week. Don’t be afraid to care deeply, in business or your art or in relationships or anything else. It’s that music of your heart, expressed through your words and actions, that will make you or your work magnetic to the right people and situations.

Supportive crystals this week?

Banded Agate (pictured) creates a sense of safety, peace and belonging as you open up to living more fully as yourself. Great if you feel anxious about speaking up or sharing your gifts with the world! Sunstone helps you to sit in a place of abundance thinking so that you see the blessings and possibilities in life. Rose Quartz opens your heart to love and helps you to express and receive love. Ocean Jasper is a healing stone that helps you to feel at home wherever you are, including feeling at home in yourself. To use these stones simply pop them in your pocket, or wear them somewhere on your body. They are also good to hold in meditation or to place under your pillow before sleep.

 

Helpful essential oils?

Rose essential oil is my pick for this week. Its sweet floral aroma is uplifting and heart opening. To bring romance into your world Geranium and Jasmine are also excellent choices. Apply a dab to wrists, neck and over heart as a perfume or diffuse. They are also heavenly in your bathwater.

Want to make your own blend? Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own for you this week, but they’ll also make a great combination for diffusing. Ylang Ylang restores confidence in ourselves and our decisions and is supportive when we feel anxious or overwhelmed, Rose opens our heart to love and heals old emotional hurts, Orange promotes joy, gratitude and optimism and Geranium is great for stress reduction and emotional balance, and for evoking a sense of peace and goodwill. To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser. You can find the oils here.

Monday Oracle – 8 January 2018

 “If the only prayer you said was thank you, that would be enough. –  Meister Eckhart

 

Hello, Lovelies!

The cards I am using for guidance for 2018 are the enchanting Inner Child Cards – A Fairy-Tale Tarot by Ishna Lerner, Mark Lerner and Christopher Guilfoil. I’ve used and loved these cards for over 25 years and they are just perfect for our year ahead. They may seem childlike and whimsical in their design but there is great depth and wisdom within them.

January is a month for easing ourselves into the energies of 2018, for resting and recharging, for planning and dreaming and for tuning in to what can support us in the year ahead.

Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of awareness which the oracle card Seven of  Crystals brings us.

This is a week for counting our blessings, for sitting in gratitude for what is already good in our lives, and for thinking about the experiences, energies, relationships and opportunities we wish to draw to ourselves in 2018.

No matter what your spiritual or religious inclinations, find some sacred time for yourself this week. That might be attending a church, lighting incense and offering prayers in a temple, meditation time, a walk in nature or any place that helps you to find that stillness within and without.

If you want, it’s also a great week for creating a simple altar or sacred space at home. Think of a small space on a tabletop or window ledge where you can place a few things that have deep meaning for you, and where you might also keep a crystal, candle or some fresh flowers. What you choose and create is up to you – it’s a little physical reminder of your own sacred soul path and inner journey, and your own personal spiritual beliefs.

It’s a week for stepping away from the news, gossip and any outside negative energies. Don’t worry. They will still all be there when we come back into the world, but for now, Seven of Crystals reminds us to keep our hearts and thoughts full of kindness, love, gratitude and positive thoughts for ourselves and others.

Supportive crystals this week?

Selenite boosts intuition and all forms of spiritual connection. It will help you to connect into your guides, angels and psychic ability. Fantastic for gently guiding you inwards.

Red Jasper is a stone for mental, physical and emotional rejuvenation. Deeply grounding, it helps you connect to your heart and your truth. Clear Quartz lifts your vibration and opens you to flow. It is a highly spiritual stone, encouraging self-reflection and helpful for hearing messages and receiving signs or direction that can assist you on your journey. A clear quartz cluster or double terminated stone will be extra supportive for you this week! 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?

I’m loving Young Living’s Envision this week. It’s an oil blend I often use in my workshops and retreats to help my students connect to inner wisdom and intuition. It helps us to see a greater possibility for ourselves. Use Envision for spiritual connection, inspiration and breakthroughs. Dab a drop on your Crown Chakra, back of neck, over your heart, wrists and the soles of your feet, inhale directly or add to your diffuser. 

Want to make your own blend? Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own for you this week, but they’ll also make a delicious combination for diffusing. Vetiver will calm and ground us, promoting emotional balance, Lavender keeps us in flow and relaxed, Ylang Ylang opens our hearts and is supportive when we feel anxious or overwhelmed, and Bergamot brings joy, gratitude and optimism.  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.
