Claim Your Personal Power – Monday Oracle 8 July 2019

“Incredible change happens in your life when you decide to take control of what you do have power over instead of craving control over what you don’t.” 
~ Steve Maraboli

Hello, Lovelies!

July is a powerful month, bringing insight and empowerment. It’s a month for understanding what is holding you back and keeping you trapped. It’s a month for honestly identifying and owning any addictions, self-destructive or self-sabotaging behaviours and damaging relationships (with people, beliefs or situations). July also gifts you the clarity, energy and courage to end those things that do not serve your Highest  Good. (And I have a gorgeous new online course which will help you capitalise on all of this good energy! Details Here) Keep July’s energy in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card High Priest brings us.

High Priest reminds you of something vitally important this week. This life is YOUR life. It’s not a life for you to please your mother, or placate your partner, or to be submissive to a bully, or to stand in the wings waiting for someone to notice you and invite you to the stage. This is YOUR life.

Your life starts as an empty canvas, a book yet to be written, a movie waiting to be made. You’re the star. So, what do you want your life to be about? If it hasn’t happened yet it’s not too late. Every day is a chance to start afresh.

There’s no point playing small. There’s no point in comparing yourself to others and, in doing that, being defeated before you’ve even started. This is YOUR life. And no-one can change it for you. No-one is coming to save you. You must save yourself. You must change your life for yourself!

High Priest invites you to think about how you want your life to be, no matter what your current situation, and then create the intention that your life can be different from what it is now. Dream, plan and decide. And most importantly, don’t be afraid to act.

Thinking is not enough. Dreaming is not enough. Planning is not enough. High Priest shows you that, in order to change your life, you must combine vision with action. But if you do that, you WILL change. Not only that, from that place of action you will draw forth many unexpected helpful energies and miracles of manifestation. So, courage my friend. You CAN do this!

Supportive crystals this week?

Amazonite (pictured) helps you to live bravely and from your heart. It will boost self-confidence and self-worth. Mookaite is a gently shielding stone that helps you to think clearly and to break patterns of self-criticism and negative thinking. It aids in looking for positive solutions to life’s dilemmas and embracing change. Fluorite taps you into your innate creativity, fires up your inspiration and helps you to be honest, objective and innovative with your life. Orange Calcite connects you to creativity, inspiration and your heart’s desires and helps you to develop confidence in yourself and your dreams. Use it to help you see your first steps forward.

Helpful essential oils?

I’m loving Frankincense and Ylang Ylang essential oils this week. Frankincense is the Master Healer and is fabulous for connecting to your inner wisdom. Ylang Ylang has proven ability to promote relaxation and positive emotions.

These diffuser blends will work well for you:

  • 2 drops of Frankincense, 2 drops of Ylang Ylang and 2 drops of Cypress to promote clear thinking, forward vision and personal empowerment
  • 3 drops of Ylang Ylang, 2 drops of Bergamot and 1 drop of Vetiver for a blend that is grounding and uplifting and sure to shift you into a positive headspace and support taxed adrenals
  • 3 drops of Ylang Ylang, 2 drops of Geranium and 2 drops of Lavender for a sublimely relaxing and nurturing blend (this one’s good in the bath too!)
  • 2 drops of Ylang Ylang, 2 drops of Jasmine, 2 drops of Sandalwood and 1 drop of Frankincense to promote deep meditation and heightened intuition

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

Do you want some support for your journey?

My new self-paced Journey of Transformation online course teaches you how to use your intuition and oracle or tarot cards to gain insight and guidance for life’s troubles or to get clear on your future direction. Suitable for complete beginners and advanced students. The feedback from students already enrolled in this course has been amazing and their results have been too! Click here to find out more.

This week I urge you to value yourself and your life. This is not a dress rehearsal, and you won’t get a do-over. Every day that passes is one you’ll never live again. Let this week support you to reclaim your personal power and make this life count.

Lots of love, Nicole  xx

PS: Monday’s oracle card, High Priest, is from the Angels and Ancestors Oracle Cards by Kyle Gray. I use any cards shown as a prompt for channelled messages and my own intuitive wisdom, so my take is sometimes quite different from the meaning found in a book. 

Energies of July 2019

“We have to dare to be ourselves, however frightening or strange that self may prove to be.” 
~ May Sarton

Hello, Lovelies!

At the beginning of every month, I discuss the energies and gifts of the month ahead and how we can best use them to make our lives satisfying, meaningful and productive. I also choose a card to support the energies of the month. The deck I am using this year is The Good Tarot by Colette Baron-Reid, and July’s card is TEMPTATION

July is a powerful month  –  it is both your wake-up call and your warning, and it will lead to further self-empowerment!

It’s time to identify what is holding you back and keeping you trapped. It’s a month for honestly identifying and owning any addictions, self-destructive or self-sabotaging behaviours and damaging relationships (with people, beliefs or situations). July also gifts you the clarity, energy and courage to end those things that do not serve your Highest  Good.

Where are you being pulled off your path?  Where are you failing to walk your truth or to put yourself, your values and your important projects or calling first?

Don’t be a slave to debt, to abusive relationships of any kind, or to situations where you are not valued.  This is a month that calls you to free yourself from those chains. Look to where you feel or are indeed trapped –  then work out what to do about it.

July shows you that there is no need to go for the quick fix or to chase after every bright shiny new promise.  All you ever need is the simplicity of well-considered goals that you care about and find engaging and satisfying.

Don’t be swayed by the lure of materialism either. At the end of your life what will have counted most are experiences, relationships, accomplishments, shared moments and moments where you have glimpsed the face of God – whatever you perceive that energy to be.

This is a month to overcome fear and doubt, a month to become stronger in yourself and your life direction, a month to remind yourself about what truly matters.

Best crystals this month? – Amazonite and Mookaite

Amazonite helps you to live bravely and from your heart. It will boost self-confidence and self-worth.

Mookaite is a gently shielding stone that helps you to think clearly and to break patterns of self-criticism and negative thinking. It aids in looking for positive solutions to life’s dilemmas and embracing change. 

Essential oils to support your journey?

I’m loving Ylang Ylang essential oil for July. It’s one of the main ingredients in the perfume Chanel No. 5 and it’s famed the world over for its luxurious uplifting floral fragrance. Ylang Ylang isn’t just a pretty scent though. It has proven ability to promote relaxation and positive emotions so it’s a great addition to your emotional wellbeing toolkit.

Try massaging a drop or two into the back of your neck to soothe you when you’re frazzled, or put a few drops into an Epsom Salts bath for deep relaxation.

If you’d like to diffuse it, try these blends:

  • 3 drops of Ylang Ylang, 2 drops of Bergamot and 1 drop of Vetiver for a blend that is grounding and uplifting and sure to shift you into a positive headspace and support taxed adrenals
  • 3 drops of Ylang Ylang, 2 drops of Geranium and 2 drops of Lavender for a sublimely relaxing and nurturing blend (this one’s good in the bath too!)
  • 2 drops of Ylang Ylang, 2 drops of Jasmine, 2 drops of Sandalwood and 1 drop of Frankincense to promote deep meditation and heightened intuition

Great change is coming. So start preparing now by tuning in to what is most needed in your life. Act on that wisdom.

I’m holding space for you to be all you came here to be, and I’m cheering you on!

All my love, Nicole xx


A Week For Adventures and New Directions – Monday Oracle 25 June 2018

“Don’t die without embracing the daring adventure your life was meant to be.” ~ Steve Pavlina

 

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 Seeker of Wands brings us this week.

Do you know the story of Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz? This is Dorothy with her little dog Toto, about to embark on a glorious adventure. She has her magical red shoes on – which is symbolic of her Base Chakra – so she is feeling, safe, secure, loved, and she is ready to go off exploring. Seeker of Wands lets us know that the week ahead is about opening ourselves to new possibilities, to exploring new aspects of ourselves, of new relationships, travel and adventure.

Mix it up a bit this week. Try taking an alternate route to your usual one when you are travelling, or travel at a different time. Eat at a new cafe. Listen to a new radio station. And where possible plan an adventure or two, even if that’s just a short wander during your lunch hour.

Just like Dorothy travelling with her trusty companion Toto, connect with friends and loved ones this week. A journey shared can be double the fun!

Expect to bump into helpful people and for synchronicities to bless your life in the days ahead.

Be adventurous in your choices. Try new colours, outfits and fragrances. Get your hair styled a new way. If you’re thinking about dating this is a great week for new romance too.

For some people Seeker of Wands is asking you to step up to your calling this week. Be bold and put yourself out there. There are lots of opportunities in the air for promotion, advancement and change – why not allow the Universe to help you move in a new direction, one that is better suited to you than where you are now. 

 

Supportive crystals this week?

Smoky Quartz opens you to new possibilities and ideas and amplifies your inner voice. Labradorite encourages self-care, supports empathy and intuition, and is a gentle and reassuring stone for developing psychic ability. Sunstone helps you to sit in a place of abundance thinking so that you see the blessings and possibilities in life and to believe in your right to a better future. Unakite (pictured) opens your heart to love, and draws love, friendship and helpful people to you. It helps you to overcome feelings of isolation or loneliness.

Helpful essential oils?

Ylang Ylang, Geranium and Jasmine are my choices this week because of their ability to promote self-confidence, creativity and self-esteem. Use them on their own or in combination of equal parts of each oil.

Apply the oils to your pulse points at wrist, neck and over heart like a perfume. Place a few drops in your bath water. Diffuse them. One of my favourite uses for these oils 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 these 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 yourself. It also helps you to let go of fear, doubt and old emotional pain and hurt.  

 You can find the oils here.

June 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
