Energies of June 2019

“An awake heart is like a sky that pours light.” 
~ Hafiz

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 June’s card is 8 of Fire.

June brings energies of growth and transformation. 

This month you can build on existing situations, foundations and opportunities, further transforming your life through work and self-belief. You’ll start to see results, and your progress will become visible to others too.

The power of teamwork and of focus can’t be overestimated this month. There are so many choices in front of you now, and you may feel like there are too many choices and that everything is moving past you too fast. 

If you feel like that, look for some quiet time amid the bustle and haste. Use nature and meditation to bring you back to calm. Choose just a few things on which to focus. 

Let the rest go for now, or delegate it to someone else. And get a team together – people who can help and support you. You’ll go so much further together than trying to get it all done on your own.

June puts an emphasis on your health, healing and wellbeing. Don’t let your health slide at the expense of your dreams and goals. Look at ways to work sustainably and get help wherever you can.

Make sure to get a health check, and to keep on top of all of the habits and choices that let you live your best life.

Leave a little time for celebration this month too. Don’t let everything be everyday ordinary. 

You don’t need a reason to celebrate – being alive is enough! 

Surround yourself with people who support and uplift you. 

Do things that make you feel alive. Celebrate others too. Share the joy around.

Fill your life with colour, love and passion. Trust in the journey and believe in good outcomes.

Best crystals this month?

Map Jasper and Peach Moonstone

Map Jasper helps you to concentrate, analyse and understand. It supports the adrenals and counteracts overthinking and intellectual exhaustion. 

Peach Moonstone

Peach Moonstone encourages self-care, soothes worry, raises vibration and stimulates your capacity to problem solve using both intuition and reason.

Essential oils to support your journey?

My choice for oils that will support focus, clarity, planning and action this month are Peppermint, Rosemary and Lemon. Choose one or all of them for your diffuser – they work beautifully together.

For relaxing, enjoying lift and lifting your mood try any of these oils on their own or in combination – Wild OrangeLavenderGeraniumFrankincense and Cinnamon Bark.

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

Using Scent to Time-Travel

 

Have you ever wished you could travel back in time?

After being so deeply connected to my dear departed Great-Aunt yesterday through the fragrance of roses, it got me thinking about the number of times a smell or an odour has transported me to another time or place.

Scent can be a powerful memory trigger. No need for a fancy device to take you places.

Sense of smell is a tool I often use in my creative writing to help make my imagined world more real and three-dimensional.

The smell of the ocean – that good, clean briny smell – always relaxes me and makes me happy. It reminds me of my grandfather, who often took us sailing. The smell of spicy rum reminds me of him too.

Lavender reminds me of my Nana.  When I was little and couldn’t sleep she would sprinkle a little lavender water on my pillow, and give me some on a hanky as well.

Even now, when I have trouble sleeping, I reach for the lavender oil and am reminded of my Nana’s love and kindness.

Lavender also reminds me of fairies!

 

I once kicked over a clod of damp earth in a horse paddock and was transported back to my childhood, and the memory of a man called Bob Bone, who had a team of Clydesdales. I had forgotten all about this man, and his magnificent team of horses, but thirty years later, here I am again as a wide-eyed child, mesmerised by these huge animals and the skill with which Mr Bone worked them.

Now I use smell intentionally as well.  I light incense when I meditate and the association between the fragrance and the act of meditating helps me move into that relaxed and focused state much more quickly. Lighting a stick of incense when I am stressed helps calm me and put me into a meditative space, even when I am not actually meditating.

I use aromatherapy oils in a burner to promote or enhance certain moods or mental states. For writing I usually choose this oil blend to enhance concentration and mental clarity.  It’s also a great blend for studying so that you remember what you’re reading!

  • 1 drop Basil
  • 2 drops Rosemary
  • 2 drops Cypress

I also use essential oils in bath products and cleaning aids for the same benefits.  (Here’s a great website with free recipes and information if you want to try this yourself)

What smells trigger good memories and associations for you? Favourites for me are baking bread, fresh coffee, rain, jasmine and smoke from the wood stove. Wishing you a day of fragrance and memories. ♥
