Clarity and Insight! – Monday Oracle 6 May 2019

“In today’s complex and fast-moving world, what we need even more than foresight or hindsight is insight.” ~ Anonymous

Hello, Lovelies!

May is such a breakthrough month – it’s a time for positive progress, big leaps forward and fine-tuning of your self-awareness. Use experts and wise people to help you move past stuckness and overwhelm, and find your balance between sustainability and momentum. Expect your own wisdom to grow too this month! Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card Lightningbrings us.

I’m just loving this week’s energies! They are truly supportive of soul growth and of getting those lightbulb moments that can change your life.

Lightning delivers a powerful message. This week is all about helping you see with really clear insight what’s working and what’s missing in your life.

This is a week for divine revelations that spark incredible clarity. You know – that sudden energy when you look at something as if you are finally seeing it clearly for the first time and you think ‘Oh my God, my marriage is not working’ or ‘Wow, this is a brilliant business idea’.

That clarity may also be delivered to you by someone else. A comment or action from another person may shatter old beliefs or set you off on a whole new life course. Embrace it, and know you are being given a push by the Universe to move into stronger alignment with your Highest Good.

This is a week for getting insights around the things that are necessary for your growth, new directions or projects, and for next steps in your life.

Supportive crystals this week?

Pyrite provides passion, power and protection. It builds determination and self-belief. 
Dalmatian Jasper (pictured) helps you move forward, living in mindfulness. It releases stress and amplifies joy. Clear Quartz amplifies intuition and your ability to tune in to Universal and Personal Wisdom. Use it to get clear about what matters in your life! Orange Calciteconnects 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 next steps forward.

Helpful essential oils?

I’m loving Frankincense and Neroli this week. Use Frankincense for focus, inspiration and breakthroughs. Dab a drop on your Crown Chakra and the soles of your feet, inhale directly or add to your diffuser. Use Neroli to help you move back to a place of contentment, confidence and happiness. It’s great to inhale directly, diffuse or add a drop to Heart Chakra, throat and inner wrists like perfume. A few drops added to your bath make for magical self-care.

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

Love to meditate or want to deepen your Spiritual Journey?

I’ve bundled together four powerful guided downloadable meditations and created a companion workbook to support you in your spiritual journey. The Stardust Connection Meditation Bundle will help you to connect with and explore Earth Energies, Ancestor Energies, your Solar Plexus energies and personal power, and the Stardust Energies. There is over an hour’s worth of Guided Meditations and a 38-page workbook. The workbook holds specific instructions for using the four guided meditations, as well as journalling activities and reflection/awareness exercises.

The material in the Stardust Connection Meditation Bundle can be used at any time over the next four years, and beyond. My intention with this bundle is to help you become confident in your direction, your intuition, and your contribution to the unfolding history of the world and humanity. To access the bundle or to learn more about it go to my store or click on this link.

Want to get even deeper on your spiritual journey and psychic awakening?

Think about taking one of the last few remaining places on my upcoming Temple of Light Shamanic Meditation RetreatMore details on that here.

Craft A Visionary Talisman

This online course will help you to select a guiding card for the year ahead, or for a specific project, and then create and activate a Visionary Talisman to anchor helpful energies and qualities to guide and support you in your daily life. It’s practical shamanism, and you’ll learn a range of skills to support you on your spiritual journey. (Of course, if you’re a member of the YOM community you have access to this course for free!) For more information click here or go to my store.

Remember, see everything as necessary for your progress this month. Keep asking ‘What can I learn from this?’ and ‘What action can I take next?’ Stay open to insights and trust your inner wisdom and intuition.

Lots of love, Nicole ❤ xx

PS: Monday’s oracle card, Lightning, is from the Sacred Power Reading Cards by Anna Stark . 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. 

Why We Need YOUR Voice

“The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can.” ~ Neil Gaiman

 

Thanks to you, and to some wise and loving friends, I’ve been pushed to a major realization in the past few days. Hilariously (oh, I know you’ll relate to this) it was something other people (friends, husband, family, clients, students, dogs, Aunties, Guides, practically the entire Universe) had been telling me for years. I just hadn’t been ready to hear it yet.

That’s the thing I love about lightbulb moments. I’m always telling my clients this – and it holds true for me, and for you, and for everyone we know too.

You have to get that realization for yourself. YOU need to have that lightbulb come on in your head, to pay attention to that dawning realization and own it with every cell of your body – so that it becomes your truth, rather than simply a concept that you carry around without relating to or truly understanding.

Know what I mean?

Suddenly something inside you lights up and you think, ‘Oh, I get it now!’. And you really do.

Anyway, my realization was about writing, but what I’m going to share counts for all of us. Because it’s true.

We need your voice in the world. 

For me, my ‘voice’ is about writing. I love to write, even more than that I’m driven to write, and have been since I was a little girl. But what to write?

I’ve tried lots of things on for size. Corporate writing, ghost writing, poetry (less said about that the better) and novels.

As I’ve agonized over most of that fiction or professional writing for others, I’ve churned out millions (yep, millions) of non-fiction words about my life, my experiences, spirituality, recipes and my psychic experiences. But I never called that writing, and I never considered that it counted.

So now, as I’m sitting on the cusp of a true second chance at life, I feel the gravity of my choices. I don’t want to blow this. What do I choose to pour my still limited energy and boundless passion into?

The choice is clear.

And a little (God, if I’m honest it’s pants-wetting material) terrifying.

I need to write from my heart about the things that only I can tell. You see only I can write about my experiences in the Kimberley, only I can write about what it’s like to wake up on your thirtieth birthday and discover that you can see auras, only I can write about fairies and pirates and the mystical and epic journey of two children who must become who they are, at great odds, rather than walking the known path.

Only me.

And yesterday I made a start. I even took a photo, for posterity. That’s my friend, busily editing her current manuscript, and my computer, seat vacant for a moment while I make us another cup of tea to wash down all those lollies we’d been eating. 🙂

So, I’m starting with my Kimberley Story.

But how about you?

There are things that YOU do, things that you know, things that only you can put out into the world in your particular way.

There will always be people who’ll dive right in and add more to the pile of what’s already being done. That’s okay too, because that’s how we learn.

The stories inside you, the dress patterns, the garden designs, the music, the ideas, the healing, the science, the teaching, the innovations, the dreams and desires – they are yours alone and you have them for a reason. You are the mother or father to these energies, and it is up to you to birth them into the world, or they can never exist and be shared with others.

And our world will be the poorer for that.

So today I’m asking you to join me. The world’s a crazy place right now. We urgently need more of the good stuff, the authentic stuff. All of us have the ability to add a tiny chink of our special magic to this life; and the thing we bring into being will help others in some way, sparking off more authenticity and magic, because that’s how this whole crazy interconnected Universe works.

You don’t even need to know what your ‘thing’ is just yet. All you ever need to do is have that open questing heart that asks the question and then waits for the answer.

The answer always comes.

And usually those around you have been shouting it for years before you finally blink your sleepy eyes open and see that beautiful truth for yourself.

What is the story that only you can tell?

Maybe it’s time…

Loving my dinged up life-battered Self – Part 1

We must be willing to let go of the life we planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us. ~ Joseph Campbell

Don’t you love how Life gives you those aha moments? I’m in the middle of one right now.  It’s going to be that kind of week, I think. For you too, maybe.

This is one of the most intense weeks, energetically speaking, for clearing old family stuff: family-inherited or programmed patterns and beliefs; healing or letting go of old family wounds and pains; clearing grief around family, fertility and children or your own childhood; resolving communication issues or misunderstandings; leaving relationships or distancing yourself from what no longer works; endings and beginnings in your own family or the one you’ve created for yourself; coming to grips with your inheritance – whatever that may be.

I’m helping support others on this journey, but of course it’s also affecting me!

If you’ve been reading my blog, you’ll know that life has been fairly full on around here the past few months.  (Examples here, here and here) Yesterday was no exception. It was a gazetted ‘rest day’ for me. Let me give you  a brief peak into exactly what I’m talking about…

2.50 am  Eyes fly open and I am awake. 10 minutes to 3? Why am I awake an hour early? That extra sleep would have been so good. Oh, daylight savings. Mentally I adjust to the weird fact that I have just woken myself up with enough time to get my usual healing work done with these new time zones. It’s 3.50am, (even though it still feels an hour earlier!). I sit up, get ready and meditate for my students. Some of them need a lot of tuning up, so I do what’s needed. Then I do a healing meditation for family, friends, and clients. Finally I tune in to my ‘Elders Group’ (real people – I’m the youngest by many years, but that’s a whole other blog post), and put a little more energy into a big project we’ve been working on.

5.10am  I write my blog. (In my mind it’s still four-ish, and it feels like the middle of the night still.) I sneak back to bed, hoping to get a little sleep.

5.44am  A dear friend from America sees from my facebook status that I am awake and calls me. I have barely put the phone down when a high-profile client calls, also from the States – she’s one of a handful of clients I’ve given my private number to. Her life is in turmoil. She is desperate, and I have time, so I end up giving her a reading, sitting in bed in my pyjamas.  My work day has begun in earnest and the sun’s barely over the horizon.

6.30am  I make a healing necklace for a friend I am meeting for breakfast. She’s been going through a lot of shift.  I know she needs a little extra support.

7.00am  I answer emails. The backlog is massive, and more keep showing up in all my various in-boxes.  I choose the ones that are most urgent.  The rest will have to wait. I field a few more calls from overseas. If no-one’s dying, thinking about dying, or dealing with a life-critical or life-path critical decision I bless you and put you in my ‘pending file’.

8.00am  I am in Bangalow, laughing with girlfriends and discussing the Shamanic Meditation Retreat they all recently came to.  We also talk about cake, rural living and other important affairs, spliced in with conversation about meditation, Tibetan Singing Bowls and crystals.

10.00am  I am sitting on my front veranda with a pot of tea, a bowl of coconut ice (I must post that recipe for you!), giving a reading to someone I’ve recently met. They need the guidance. And it’s a day off, so I have time.

12.00pm  I drive to Byron to drop off a girlfriend who is staying with me, so she can meet up with some friends. I can’t find a park.  Byron Bay is like that sometimes.  I drive around and around.

12.10pm  Suddenly I feel ill.  My forehead breaks out in a cold sweat. I realise I am about to vomit.  I drive to the bus station, park and race to the public toilets, where I am violently sick.  I have no idea why, but I know that it’s not a physical issue.  Sometimes psychic work or shift affects me like this. What’s going on, I think to myself.

12.20pm  Back in the car, head out to find a park so I can sit and do some work.

12.25pm My stomach is gripped with cramps, my body is sweaty and cold, and I know I need to get back to that toilet. Yep.  Vomiting and diarrhea.  I’m clearing something big, and it’s not food related. There is big shift going on in those I love.  When I’m done in the toilet I go sit in the park and energetically send healing and light to them. The shift for them is so massive that I am wrung out.

1.30pm  I am sitting in a bookshop cafe, about to start catching up on my work backlog. The books call to me.  I end up crying, and the lady beside me ends up crying. It’s all okay.  I get what I need to from the situation.  My heart connects into the story I have been neglecting so badly while life got in the way.

2.30pm  Big stuff going down.  A hail of phone calls from family and friends.  Big decisions, big big life-changing decisions, and so I go sit at the beach and talk to them and hold space for them as they shift.

3.45pm  I head home to the farm. I make a pot of tea and do a healing for a friend. I do a healing for the world.

4.30pm  I talk to plumbers, builders and other people who are helping me get my flood-wrecked house ready for market, early 2 years after the event…  Share some information with my writing Sisters that will later trigger my own aha moment.

5.00pm  Making healing necklaces and discussing business (my kind of business – crystals, spiritual workshops, retreats, my new website etc)

7.30pm  Watch Totoro, a sweet animae DVD, that helps me remember this is actually a day off.

9.30pm  Meditation for my students, healing meditation, meditation for the world.  Tumble into sleep.

2.00am  Wake up and do a healing on a friend.  Send healing to my family.

3.00am  Snatch a bit more sleep

4.00am Meditation

5.30am  Blog…

6.10am  Finally get that this IS my life.  My life is a full-on, crazy and demanding ride, interspersed with moments of peace and complete calm so that I can recharge before the next onslaught. Oh. My. Goodness. You have no idea what a lightbulb moment that was for me. It’s not changing.  This IS it…

What was I thinking when I signed up for this?

LOL  It’s okay.  I wouldn’t have it any other way. ♥ xx
