Advice for Emerging Sensitive and Psychic Souls


“May you always find your intuitive voice and may the language of your intuition sing.” 
~
 Jodi Livon

Hello, Lovelies!
If you’re sensitive energetically then you are bound to be sensitive in other areas of your life.  This is especially true if you are going through a process of spiritual or psychic awakening. At a time of awakening, energies and abilities that have been dormant within you begin to assert themselves in your life.  This can be quite a turbulent and confusing time.

With the year’s current astrological events many sensitive souls are going though a period of spiritual or psychic awakening.

The following tips will help you to adjust to these emerging energies and gifts over the weeks and months ahead:

  • Rest.  When you’re growing and changing, rest is one of the best gifts you can give yourself.
  • Avoid crowded places such as shopping centres and football games when you are feeling particularly sensitive or energetically vulnerable.
  • Avoid difficult relationships and people who drain, upset or unbalance you.  Limit contact with the crazy-makers in your life.
  • If fluorescent and other artificial light sources bother you counteract them by spending time in daylight or moonlight.
  • Eat well.  Favour organic foods, with an emphasis on fresh, local produce, with plenty of leafy green vegetables and root vegetables, rice, pulses and yoghurt. Avoid processed food and sugar. Some people may need to avoid meat at this time.  Others may need meat to ground them.  Listen to your body.  If you’re especially sensitive avoid wheat as well.
  • Avoid alcohol, drugs and stimulants. Really be honest with yourself about substances like coffee and how they may affect you. Cut down or avoid if necessary.
  • Take a good powdered magnesium supplement.  Your muscles and nervous system use magnesium to relax and the body burns it like rocket fuel when you are engaging in energy work and psychic activity.
  • Drink plenty of fresh, clean water.
  • Use yoga, qi gung or tai chi to ground you and move energy through your body.
  • Spend time in nature.
  • Spend time on your own, exploring the things that interest you.
  • Spend time journalling and in self-exploration using tools such as crystals or cards if that feels right for you.
  • Avoid chemicals in your cleaning and personal care products. Avoid places that have a strong artificial or chemical energy.
  • Use natural and alternate therapies to help clear and support your body.
  • Meditate.
  • Pray, and talk with God.
  • Explore vibrational therapies such as essential oils, bush or bach flower essences, crystals, music, colour and aromatherapy.
  • Trust, look for support and know that things do get easier over time.

I’m holding you in my daily prayers and meditations, and wishing you well as you reconnect with your own natural intuitive gifts.
Love and Light, Nicole ❤ xx

Intuitive Oracle Card Reading Challenge – Day 8

“Sometimes you don’t know when you’re taking the first step through a door until you’re already inside.” ~ Ann Voskamp

 

Today’s the last day of our online Oracle Card Challenge. Thanks so much for having been a part of it!

For our final question, we’re throwing things open to the Universe and our own Inner Wisdom. Expect ah-ha moments, validation, breakthroughs and Divine Inspiration.

Remember that using cards is a way to access your intuition and inner knowing. If a card comes up that looks negative or upsetting, consider that this may be a situation which can now be healed, a pattern to be broken, or an issue that is coming to an end. Universal Guidance and our own intuition always and only speak from love. Trust that all messages will have a positive and useful insight to help you learn, heal or transcend.

Let’s get started!

Mini Meditation with your Crystal

Take your crystal, and complete this short guided meditation:

Hold your stone in your cupped hands, close your eyes, and slow your breathing. Bring white light into your body until you feel peaceful and calm. Then bring white light into the crystal too. Allow yourself to connect to the stone. You may feel it tingle, or you may experience colour, images or guiding thoughts. When you are ready, open your eyes.

Keep your stone near you, and hold it when you write. If any insights have already emerged take a moment to write them down!


Card of the Day – What’s the first and most important step I need to take to change my life?

This is an important question, although the answer may be simple. Honour this by taking a moment to centre yourself, to calm yourself, to become fully present. Then tune in to your heart.

Shuffle your cards, while silently asking the question to yourself  What’s the first and most important step I need to take to change my life?

When you have shuffled the cards and they feel ‘done’, select just one card. Place the card face up in front of you. Clear your mind by closing your eyes and taking one deep breath in and then out. Open your eyes again. Take a minute and look at the picture on the oracle or tarot card. What stands out for you? Is it an image or a colour? Is it a number or a word? What are your first impressions? Write these down in your journal.

Now let’s go a little deeper. What feelings or words does this card evoke in your mind when you think about the card and its images in relation to the question What’s the first and most important step I need to take to change my life? Take two minutes and just write some stream-of-consciousness thoughts down. Don’t censor or judge them. Trust the process. Finally, read back over what you have written.

Expect that more insights may come up for you during the day. Write anything important down in your journal so that you can continue to reflect upon it.


Question of The Day Three Card Spread (optional activity, if you have the time and inclination)

Trust that you’ve been shown something that is truly useful to you.

Return your Daily Card to the pack and shuffle the cards, asking the question ‘How can I best use this Insight?’  Choose three cards and lay them face down in front of you.

The card on the left is The Opportunity. The card in the middle is your Helpful Action. The card on the right is The Outcome.

1. Turn the first card over and let it give you insights into the opportunity and direction today’s information could create for you.

2. Turn the second card over. This card shows you the way forward. Let it show you what you can do, what choices you can make, actions you can take, to get you moving forward in a positive and aligned way to create momentum, progress or change.

3. Turn the third card over. This card will help you gain insights into how acting on this opportunity can potentially transform your life

Write notes in your journal if this is helpful.


Self-Care Action

Based on the insights you’ve received from today’s cards, what small action can you take today to look after yourself well and to show yourself nurture and kindness? Write that down in your journal and make sure to action it!


Where to from here?

Spend some time between now and the end of the year in reflection on the answers you have journaled. Build on the knowledge that you’ve accessed. Let it shape and inform your future decisions and life direction.

If you’d like extra support and a guidance system for the year ahead consider ordering one of my YOM Planners – which is a system for planning and living a mindful year using techniques similar to what you’ve practiced here. You can read all about those offerings and take advantage of our pre-launch bonuses by clicking here.

You’ll also enjoy my Mystical Manifesting Workshop on November 11, 2018. This workshop, co-facilitated with channelling with my energetic companions Silith and Rollo, utilises all of the rituals I use to close out one year and herald in the new one. We will guide you on a journey to open you up to your highest potential and clearest direction for 2019. You’ll learn:

  • An intuitive card reading to clear and learn from the energies of 2018
  • An intuitive card reading and journaling technique to determine your personal power and mystical energies for 2019
  • Creation of a personalised essential oil blend to support your mystical and personal powers for 2019
  • An intuitive card reading to establish a clear path forward for 2019
  • How to program a crystal as your 2019 Manifestation Stone
  • How to make a sacred symbolic lexicon
  • How to use your sacred symbolic lexicon to create a visionary talisman (like a Vision Board but SO much more powerful!) for 2019

You’ll be given a workbook, manifesting crystal and a personalised essential oil blend during this workshop. You will make your own Visionary Talisman to take home.

A delicious morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea will also be provided. Bookings Essential!

Cost: $265 adults

Intuitive Oracle Card Reading Challenge – Day 7

“Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be.” ~Abraham Lincoln

 

In these last few days of our Challenge we’re examining directions we can follow that will be meaningful and enjoyable for us.

Remember that using cards is a way to access your intuition and inner knowing. If a card comes up that looks negative or upsetting, consider that this may be a situation which can now be healed, a pattern to be broken, or an issue that is coming to an end.

Card of the Day – What will actually make me happy?

We have an incredible wisdom within us, informed by our soul, our intuition, our personality and our life experiences. Let that wisdom guide you now as you star to chart a way forward for yourself.

Shuffle your cards, while silently asking the question to yourself  What will actually make me happy?

When you have shuffled the cards and they feel ‘done’, select just one card. Place the card face up in front of you. Clear your mind by closing your eyes and taking one deep breath in and then out.

Question of The Day Three Card Spread (optional activity, if you have the time and inclination)

Sometimes the things that will truly make our lives meaningful are obvious, and sometimes they’ve been hidden away under the overwhelm of life. Now it’s time to look at the opportunities we’re being shown in relation to our heart’s true desires.

Return your Daily Card to the pack and shuffle the cards, asking the question ‘How can I best use this Insight?’  Choose three cards and lay them face down in front of you.

The card on the left is The Opportunity. The card in the middle is your Helpful Action. The card on the right is The Outcome.

Lighting The Way For Others – Monday Oracle 29 October 2018

“Share your knowledge.
It’s a way to achieve immortality.

Dalai Lama

 

Hello, Lovelies!

October brings our focus back to our home environment, our heart-space and our soul’s journey. We’ll feel a need to nest, to clean and beautify the spaces where we spend most of our time (this could be your body, home, work or even your car!) and to have to hand the things we need to make our time in these spaces comfortable and productive. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card Eight of Swords brings us.

In our lives there are things we have learned only through experience. In living them we have discovered things about ourselves and about life that could never be learned through a book or course. Eight of Swords encourages us to share that wisdom with others this week.

Whether it is passing on a skill, giving some hard-won advice, or supporting a friend or family member based on your own experience of a similar situation, everything you do that uplifts or supports another contributes to the overall raising of the Planet’s vibration. Be the light! Practice kindness and be encouraging to all you meet.

This is also a great week for all forms of spiritual connection, journalling and intuitive work for yourself or others. From life’s trials and difficulties you’ll find answers, directions and growth opportunities.

Supportive crystals this week?

Bronzite promotes inner harmony, reduces worry and allows you to feel grounded, calm and safe.  Angelite nurtures your soul, gifting you expansive connection and deep emotional nourishment. A stone for revelations and insights about what is good for you. Smoky Quartz (pictured) helps you to overcome self-doubt and is shielding, protective and reassuring. Lapis Lazuli will help you speak your truth and hold your ground with wisdom and clarity.

 

Helpful essential oils?

Basil essential oil brings clarity, focus and uplift this week, and is a great oil to diffuse.  If you’re really muddled or exhausted add a few drops of Lemon or Wild Orange. 

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, ‘Eight 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.

  2. Card of the Day
  3. Question of the Day Three card spread (optional)
  4. Self-Care action

Mini Meditation with your Crystal

Take your crystal, and complete this short guided meditation:

Hold your stone in your cupped hands, close your eyes, and slow your breathing. Bring white light into your body until you feel peaceful and calm. Then bring white light into the crystal too. Allow yourself to connect to the stone. You may feel it tingle, or you may experience colour, images or guiding thoughts. When you are ready, open your eyes.

Keep your stone near you, and hold it when you write. If any insights have already emerged take a moment to write them down!

Card of the Day – What Have I forgotten or neglected that could help me with my relationship with myself right now?

Your body knows, your soul knows, but sometimes the mind forgets! Today’s card will help you to tune in to something important that can support your health and wellbeing in the days ahead.

Now shuffle your cards, while silently asking the question to yourself  ‘What Have I forgotten or neglected that could help me with my relationship with myself right now?’

When you have shuffled the cards and they feel ‘done’, select just one card. Place the card face up in front of you. Clear your mind by closing your eyes and taking one deep breath in and then out. Open your eyes again. Take a minute and look at the picture on the oracle or tarot card. What stands out for you? Is it an image or a colour? Is it a number or a word? What are your first impressions? Write these down in your journal.

Now let’s go a little deeper. What feelings or words does this card evoke in your mind when you think about the card and its images in relation to the question ‘What Have I forgotten or neglected that could help me with my relationship with myself right now?’ Take two minutes and just write some stream-of-consciousness thoughts down. Don’t censor or judge them. Trust the process. Finally, read back over what you have written.

Expect that more insights may come up for you during the day. Write anything important down in your journal so that you can continue to reflect upon it.

Question of The Day Three Card Spread (optional activity, if you have the time and inclination)

Now we have an idea of what we have been neglecting or have forgotten that can help us with our relationship with ourself it’s useful to understand what has led us to be in this starting position. What is the background to this current situation in our life?

Return your Daily Card to the pack and shuffle the cards, asking the question ‘How Did I Get Here?’  Choose three cards and lay them face down in front of you.

The card on the left is The Issue. The card in the middle is your Helpful Action. The card on the right is The Learning.

1.     Turn the first card over and let it give you insights into the issues/choices/actions that led to you being where you are now.

2.     Turn the second card over. This card shows you the way forward. Let it show you what you can do, what choices you can make, actions you can take, to get you moving forward in a positive and aligned way to bring healing or progress or change.

3.     Turn the third card over. This card will help you gain insights into how to avoid a repeat of a problem, how to break patterns or change your thoughts around this situation, or which things to keep doing so that your life works better for you in the future based on the current situation.

Write notes in your journal if this is helpful.

Self-Care Action

Based on the insights you’ve received from today’s cards, what small action can you take today to look after yourself well and to show yourself nurture and kindness? Write that down in your journal and make sure to action it!

Sending you love, and my intention that these insights from the Oracle Card Challenge illuminate your life in positive ways,

Nicole ❤ xx

The Energies of March– 2018

Don’t you ever let a soul in the world tell you that you can’t be exactly who you are.” 
~  Lady Gaga

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!

Cards for the Month:

I’ve chosen two cards for March for you: one from Colette Baron-Reid’s The Enchanted Map and one from Steven Farmer’s Earth Magic Oracle. Please note I don’t use these cards in a conventional way, but rather as a stimulus for channeled information.

Here is what I have received from each card:

“At the center of your being
you have the answer;
you know who you are
and you know what you want.”
~ Lao Tzu

March is a month for rediscovering ourselves and owning who we are without apology. It’s great for examining or creating our plans, goals and dreams, and for exploring our relationships with ourselves and others. Really dive deep this month with your journaling and planning. 

Ask yourself the big questions about how you feel about things, what you believe in and what you stand for. Don’t be surprised to find that your views have shifted since the last time you checked in with yourself. It’s a month of strengthening confidence about our life or business direction, and for feeling ready to share our ideas, gifts or talents in bigger ways.

The second card I’ve chosen is LOTUS FLOWER. 

A flower blooming in the desert proves to the world that adversity, no matter how great, can be overcome.
~ Matshona Dhliwayo

March is a relationship-centred month. Love and friendships can blossom in March, so make sure that you have time for socialising and for spending time with friends, family or your love interest. It’s also a strong month for fertility and creativity, so take that into account in your planning. Anything you want to grow will grow well in March – babies, gardens, projects, hobbies, new ideas. Nurture them and sing them into being.

Finally, March is a month for getting off the fence, committing to what matters to you and stepping back from the things and relationships about which you are indifferent or out of synch. Commit to the things that you want to make work and that you care about – the relationship, the health plan, the writers’ group, the local environment campaign, the business you want to start or need to build on, or whatever else is your thing. If you’re not sure what you want to do use this month to get clarity. You will!

Best crystals this month?

Amazonite and Clear Quartz

Amazonite helps you to stand in your power and be brave in putting yourself and your ideas out into the world.

Clear Quartz amplifies your intuition and your ability to tune in to Universal and Personal Wisdom.

Essential oils to support your journey?

Young Living’s Abundance blend is my choice for March. Containing orange, patchouli, frankincense, clove, ginger, myrhh, cinnamon and spruce it has a rich spicy aroma and I find it very grounding and centering. I love this oil for helping me get into a space of allowing, receiving and flow. If ever I feel out of sorts, unworthy, undeserving or out of alignment Abundance is my go-to oil. Usage: A drop over your heart and on your wrists as a perfume and/or on crown of head, back of neck and behind ears work well. So does diffusing the oil of putting a few drops in your bath water.

Want to make your own blend? Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own but they’ll also make a great combination for diffusing. Orange is uplifting, busts stress and helps us overcome self-doubt. Frankincense elevates our mood and promotes spiritual connection and intuition, Patchouli reduces inflammation and stress in the body and it helps us to feel deserving and open to abundance, Myrhh is a deeply spiritual oil – it’s a resin with a smoky sweet and slightly bitter smell which helps link our left and right brain bringing balance, calm and centering.  (Frankincense and Myrrh are said to be two of the three gifts brought by the three wise men to the baby Jesus, the third gift being gold.) To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser. You can find the oils here.

A New Journal Challenge For You!

“The wound is the place where the Light enters you.”
~ Rumi

Writing a journal is something I’ve done since I was a child. I don’t mean a simple diary, where you record the events of the day. You know what I mean… I ate this. I did this. Someone said that. No. I mean a place where I could explore ideas, talk with myself, and find my own answers.

Over the last few years I’ve created several journal challenges here on my blog, and I’ve just made a new one for you, to take advantage of the fabulous energies August and September bring for truly going deep within, in order to know and understand ourselves better.

Would you like to join me?

We’ll be starting next Sunday, August 2nd, so that you have adequate time to gather your resources together. Each Sunday for September and August I will have a new journal activity for you to complete during the week. You’ll need a minimum of ten minutes to set aside each week for writing, and an additional five minutes per day for five out of seven days for energy work. (If you can do more, great. If you can only find ten minutes then we’ll flow with that too.) There will also be an optional guided meditation each week.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • A new journal. Choose one that feels right for you. Make sure there are enough pages to get you through 9 activities.
  • Some pens and pencils.
  • A small stone to use as a gratitude rock.
  • A larger rock or crystal to use as a guidance stone.
  • A deck of oracle cards.
  • A sense of adventure and a readiness to explore your inner world.

NB: A note on choosing oracle cards – choose cards whose pictures and messages are meaningful to you. Avoid cards such as tarot decks that show only coins or cups etc. Instead choose a deck whose imagery really speaks to you. It’s the pictures that matter. Don’t worry if you don’t know how to use them. I’ll be showing you.

That’s my own journal, cards and stones in the picture below. I’ll be right beside you doing each week’s activities too. My gratitude rock is a small citrine, and my guidance stone is a labradorite. The oracle cards I’ll be using are Colette Baron-Reid’s Enchanted Map cards

Who’s in? Pop your name in the comments or let us know over on facebook. If you post a pic on the facebook page during this challenge, you’ll be in the running to win a cool prize! Stay tuned for directions.

Much love, Nicole <3 xx
