Monday Oracle – 18 February 2019

“ It is in the shelter of each other that the people live. -Irish proverb ” 
Louisa Thomsen Brits, The Book of Hygge: The Danish Art of Living Well

Hello, Lovelies!

February is a month for action and self-empowerment – for taking your plans and turning them into goals, action steps and habits. It’s a month for speaking your truth and standing your ground. It’s a month for creating positive change, embracing your individuality and investing in yourself and your dreams. It’s a short month that packs a big punch! Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card Shelter brings us.

This week Shelter urges us to look to the environment. What can we do to help protect and nurture this habitat in which we all co-exist? The earth is our one irreplaceable home, and if it becomes uninhabitable due to climate change, species extinction, deforestation, pollution, and water scarcity then all of us lose.

There are already many grass-roots organisations that are taking the initiative to create a more sustainable and green world. Or perhaps you could start your own.

Here are our favourite simple actions that everyone can take to help the planet:

  • Plant trees. If every person planted ten trees we would go a long way towards halting or reversing climate change. Also think food plants, balcony and indoor plants and plants with flowers that encourage and feed insects, bees and birds.
  • Reduce your consumerism, re-use and recycle.
  • Support a group (financially or with your time) that is already doing work with conservation, replanting and preservation of biodiversity.
  • Stop buying single-use plastic containers, especially bottled water. Use your own keep-cups and water bottles for hot and cold beverages. Say no to plastic straws and plastic bags.
  • Conserve water and electricity.

Shelter encourages us to make our homes places of safety, sanctuary and nurture. We need to do this for ourselves, but we may also be called to create that safe and nurturing space for someone we love, or to extend that help and support to a friend or stranger. Remember that animals and plants can benefit from us creating those places of sanctuary for them too.

Supportive crystals this week?

Blue Lace Agate supports your Throat Chakra, helping you to find your voice and speak your truth. It’s a great stone for all forms of communication, and it also brings a sense of calm. Sunstone helps you to sit in a place of abundance thinking so that you see the blessings and possibilities in your life. Petrified Wood (pictured) helps you connect to the energies of ancient forests, grounding and calming you and helping to reduce stress, anxiety and inflammation. Green Aventurine supports you to be playful, joyful and optimistic about life.

Helpful essential oils?

Choose any of the following oils or combine them for a diffuser blend to help you create a sense of sanctuary at your home or office:  Vetiver, Geramium, Lavender and Bergamot.

Vetiver is one of my favourite oils. It has a woodsy, earthy fragrance that is very calming and grounding. It will help you to concentrate, soothes anxiety and helps your thoughts become more structured and logical. Geranium helps with creating a sense of safety and is a comforting and supportive oil.  Lavender calms an over-busy or stressed mind and opens you to possibility. Bergamot reconnects you to joy, creativity and hope.

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

Monday Oracle – 11 February 2019

A vision without a strategy remains an illusion. ” ~  Lee Bolman

Hello, Lovelies!

February is a month for action and self-empowerment – for taking your plans and turning them into goals, action steps and habits. It’s a month for speaking your truth and standing your ground. It’s a month for creating positive change, embracing your individuality and investing in yourself and your dreams. It’s a short month that packs a big punch! Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card Strategy brings us.

This is an important week. It’s a week for bravely committing to change. It’s a week for boldly choosing a goal, a direction, a potential outcome and then working towards that.

Strategy shows us the need for thinking deeply about HOW we will make this happen, and for breaking our bigger tasks down into bite-sized pieces. We need to play the long game, thinking about our future self even as we live day-by-day.

Strategy also reminds us that someone has already done the thing we want to do, or something like it, so we don’t need to reinvent the wheel. It’s a powerful week for mirroring the good example set by mentors, coaches, individuals or companies whom you’d like to emulate.

The key questions to ask yourself this week:

  • What goals, projects or outcomes do I want to achieve this year or in the next few years?
  • What are the major action steps that will take me from where I am now to my end goal?
  • How can I break those action steps down into even smaller tasks and goals?
  • What bits can I do myself?
  • What bits will need help? And who can help me with that?
  • What is the most logical/sustainable/sensible/practical order for me to undertake these tasks?
  • How will I celebrate my minor and major milestones of accomplishment?

Then take your answers and create your STRATEGY – your plan for achieving these things in your life.

Apply that strategy, tweak and refine it as you go, rest if you need to, and don’t give up. If you work that plan, progress is assured.

Strategy is no good unless it is actioned, so your final question for yourself is: ‘What baby step can I take today that will move me toward my bigger goal?’

DO that thing. Then find another baby step. DO that one. Keep going. You’ve got this!

Sunstone (pictured) helps you to sit in a place of abundance thinking so that you see the blessings and possibilities in your life. Pyrite promotes confidence, good decision-making, courage and the ability to embrace your potential.  Fluorite taps you into your innate creativity, fires up your inspiration and helps you to be honest, objective and innovative with your work.  

Helpful essential oils?

Choose any of the following oils or combine them for a diffuser blend to help you focus, think clearly and structure your ideas and information:  Vetiver, Lemongrass, Lavender and Cypress.

Vetiver is one of my favourite oils. It has a woodsy, earthy fragrance that is very calming and grounding. It will help you to concentrate, soothes anxiety and helps your thoughts become more structured and logical. Lemongrass helps with being open to change and for pattern-breaking.  It’s a beautiful oil to diffuse to promote fresh and positive mental perspectives. Lavender calms an over-busy or stressed mind and opens you to possibility. Cypress will improve your mental focus and clear away those cobwebs in your brain, helping you to problem-solve and work effectively.

A Week for Action! – Monday Oracle 4 February 2019

“Start by doing what is necessary, then what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” ~ St. Francis Of Assisi

Hello, Lovelies!

February is a month for action and self-empowerment – for taking your plans and turning them into goals, action steps and habits. It’s a month for speaking your truth and standing your ground. It’s a month for creating positive change, embracing your individuality and investing in yourself and your dreams. It’s a short month that packs a big punch! Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card New Beginning brings us.

January was a month of planning, of identifying what we want more of and less of in our lives OR of being shown that by the Universe getting right up in our faces and poking her bony finger in our breastbone as the world fell apart around us while saying ‘Do you get it yet?’ (Hopefully, your answer was yes!)

We can’t keep repeating the same old patterns this year. We don’t want to. We can’t afford to. So here is February to help us get firmly on a better path – one that truly supports our goals, dreams, talents and wise inner self.

The week New Beginnings urges us not to quit on the things we started in January and where we’ve already fallen off the wagon. Broke your diet already? Make a list, do a shop, plan and pre-prepare your meals and start again. Slept in instead of going to the gym? Start again tomorrow. Meanwhile, don’t cave, decide you’re a loser and eat an entire tub of icecream. NO. You’ve got this. It’s normal to be wonky when we are trying something new. So you missed the early-morning gym session? Go for a walk. Hydrate. Decide to do better. Haven’t even begun to tidy the mess that is your home? Go pick one drawer, in one room. Or tackle the dirty dishes in the sink. Take a photo of ‘the before’. Tidy it. Take another photo. Compare the two. Remind yourself that progress is possible and that even the tiniest of steps forward is still a step forward. Lots of tiny steps and suddenly you’ll be a long way forward from where you are right now.

New Beginnings helps us to understand that the hardest part of change is committing and getting started because we don’t have any momentum yet, and the results of decisions and actions (or lack thereof) we made yesterday are all we can see. Don’t let your current circumstances dictate your future. Declare self-sovereignty, pick something and just make a start.

New Beginnings also reminds us that between the periods of doing and busy-ness we need to rest, to recharge and to have some fun. Change, healing and help for us and our dreams are all possible. Balance is everything this year and slow and steady will give lasting benefits over big efforts followed by crash and burn. You KNOW this is true so take it to heart. Be done with working and living unsustainably. Take time to build nurture and meaning into your daily life.

Need help to get started? Find a class, coach, course, buddy or mentor to provide support and motivation. (Unless that’s another one of your procrastination patterns, in which case just get on with it!)

Helpful essential oils?

Combine Basil, Lemongrass and Bergamot Essential Oils for an uplifting and focusing diffuser blend this week.

Basil is a fabulous oil for motivation and for overcoming exhaustion and overwhelm. It will help with moving you to a place of emotional and spiritual renewal, and aids focus and concentration. Lemongrass helps with being open to change and for pattern-breaking.  It’s a beautiful oil to diffuse to promote fresh and positive mental perspectives. Bergamot boosts optimism and confidence, and is relaxing and calming while maintaining energy levels. These oils can be used individually or combined in a ration of 3:1:4

A Week To Tune In – Monday Oracle 28 January 2019


“Listening is about being present, not just about being quiet.” ~ Krista Tippett

Hello, Lovelies!

January is a month for planning, and for becoming clear about what matters to you. It’s a month for prioritising, honouring your heart and putting routines and acts of self-care into place for the year ahead. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card Listen brings us.

In today’s society there is so much pressure upon us to impress, to succeed, to be noticed and thought well of. We’re praised for pushing through, for not making waves, for not crying or falling apart. We’re led to believe that we need an Instagram-worthy life and encouraged to seek out or create those moments. We’re pushed to get a better job, a bigger house, fancier tech and more peak experiences, and to make sure we provide those for our children while protecting them from the dangers of the world. Meanwhile, anxiety, depression, social disconnection and loneliness are at an all-time high.

Which begs the question, What if most of what we have been told will make us happy is wrong?

Listen shows us that no matter how lost we may feel there is always a part of us that knows what will help us to feel better. There is always a wise part of ourselves that knows what truly matters in our life, and in the wider world.

Listen brings us life-changing wisdom this week. It encourages to tap into our feelings of vague uneasiness, insecurity, boredom, resentment, unhappiness or discontent. These are surface emotions – red flags we can follow to get to a deeper truth. All we need to do is keep asking ourselves Why do I feel this way? and then get quiet and wait for answers and insights.

Listen is about doing Soul Work – about caring enough for ourselves that we get off the mind-numbing treadmill of busy-ness and habit, and start tuning in to our Soul’s truth.

Expect to get greater clarity about your relationships, career, health and life direction as you tune in to your inner voice.

Listen is also about being present with those around us. It’s about taking the time to be in the moment with them, opening ourselves to the deeper truths in what they are trying to share with us so that we can help them to feel more understood. Which in turn helps us to understand ourselves better too. It’s a beautiful week for reconnection, for beginning a new and better dialogue, and for embarking on healing old hurts and misunderstandings with the ones you love.

Supportive crystals this week?

Green Jade works with your Heart Chakra to bring balance and integration of Body, Mind and Spirit. It is positive and nurturing, strengthening self-worth. Citrine supports your Solar Plexus Chakra and sense of identity. It is a stone of abundance, clearing blocks of low self-worth and creating flow. Turquoise (pictured) encourages empathy, compassion and the ability to slow down and stay grounded. Amethyst helps you to let go of emotional baggage and invites positive personal and spiritual transformation.

Helpful essential oils?

Basil will help with moving you to a place of emotional and spiritual renewal, and aids focus and concentration. Frankincense helps shift grief and trauma, and centers you in your intuitive wisdom.  Wild Orange uplifts mood and replaces anxiety with a grounded optimism. It’s my favourite oil to use when I am anxious or feeling flat. These oils can be diffused on their own or in combination.

Monday Oracle – 14 January 2019


“ None of us knows what might happen even the next minute, yet still we go forward. Because we trust. Because we have Faith. ” 
~ Paulo Coelho, Brida

Hello, Lovelies!

This year as I present our #MondayOracle I am dividing the year into Quarters, to correspond with all of us in the community who are using my YOM Planner. Each quarter of 2019 has different energetic themes, so I will choose an oracle or tarot deck that best supports those themes. For our First Quarter, which is all about developing your focus, alignment and direction I will be using the Peace Oracle by Toni Carmine Salerno and Leela J. Williams.

January is a month for planning, and for becoming clear about what matters to you. It’s a month for prioritising, honouring your heart and putting routines and acts of self-care into place for the year ahead. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card Trust brings us.

Trust encourages us to get out of our head and back into our body this week. When we live only in our head we can neglect our physical and emotional wellbeing. We can lose connection to our body’s natural wisdom and make choices that are not healthy or supportive. When we live only from our head we do not hear our body’s constant quiet conversation with us – we stop recognising when we are truly hungry or tired or in need of emotional support. We numb ourselves and stuff ourselves and alienate ourselves from this body that is the housing for our soul.

Have you been over-thinking, over-working and living off adrenaline and stress? Trust comes to your aid this week. Her energies support us reconnecting with our bodies, helping us to move to a place of acceptance of ourselves as we are right now, even if we hold an intention of changing from the way we are today.

This week we’re reminded that our body has its own wisdom. When we tune in to that we can begin to reset our natural patterns and preferences. Our body will gravitate towards the food, movements and habits that will nourish and heal it if only we take time to get out of our head and then pay attention to our inner motivators and instincts.

It’s a great week to see health professionals, to get a medical or dental check-up, to start a healthier food or exercise plan, or to detox and embrace a less-stressed life.

Look to schedule regular self-care, beauty and massage sessions, and put healthy routines in place that support your physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.

Citrine supports your Solar Plexus Chakra and sense of identity. It is a stone of abundance, clearing blocks of low self-worth and creating flow. Ruby Zoisite is a stone of transformation, helping you to be empowered in your life. It elevates your confidence and authority, and improves fertility, imagination and innovation. Green Aventurine supports you to be playful, joyful and optimistic about life. 

Helpful essential oils?

Magnolia essential oil helps you to reconnect to your body, and promotes self-acceptance and positive body image. Its fruity, floral aroma is calming and nurturing. Use it on the soles of your feet, and to your pulse points at wrist, neck and over heart like a perfume.

Palmarosa stabilises your emotions and rejuvenates you when you are feeling tired or emotionally battered and bruised. Its gentle nature will help recenter you when you’ve lost your way. Add a few drops to your bath with a little Magnolia or Lavender for a peaceful soak.

Lemongrass helps with being open to change and for pattern-breaking.  It’s a beautiful oil to diffuse to promote fresh and positive mental perspectives.

Living From Your Heart Space -Monday Oracle 7 January 2019


“Focus on your strengths, not your weaknesses.
Focus on your character, not your reputation.
Focus on your blessings, not your misfortunes.” 
~ Roy T. Bennett

Hello, Lovelies!

This year as I present our #MondayOracle I am dividing the year into Quarters, to correspond with all of us in the community who are using my YOM Planner. Each quarter of 2019 has different energetic themes, so I will choose an oracle or tarot deck that best supports those themes. For our First Quarter, which is all about developing your focus, alignment and direction I will be using the Peace Oracle by Toni Carmine Salerno and Leela J. Williams.

January is a month for planning, and for becoming clear about what matters to you. It’s a month for prioritising, honouring your heart and putting routines and acts of self-care into place for the year ahead. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card Heart Space brings us.

Heart Space reminds us that when we listen to our hearts and do what we love – even if that is a hobby or something we fit into our downtime, like music or gardening or rollerball derby or baking bread – our life becomes richer and more satisfying. We can use these experiences that enrich us to top up the well of love inside us from which we give to others, and that also feeds our creative acts. This prevents us from burning out, running dry or moving into overwhelm and resentment.

This week give thought to the relationships, activities and places that nourish and nurture you. Think about how you can incorporate these into your life on a regular basis. This kind of self-care can be life-changing as it moves you back into energetic flow and aligns you with what matters most to you.

It’s a beautiful week for any kind of creative venture so bake, paint, craft, play, make, write, and create. Or go one further and sign up to a creative class or carve out some dedicated time and space for your art.

Most importantly, don’t just think about it. ACT ON IT! Make a deliberate effort to nurture your heart space this week. DO things that fill you up. Make time for yourself and your dreams, and for doing what you love. This is especially important if your life is stressful and demanding. And remember that what we focus on, multiplies. So focus on what makes you happy and what helps you to feel good about your life. Take your focus away from your problems and look to solutions or something that can bring an energy of gratitude to your life.

Heart Space teaches us that when we begin to live from a place of honouring our own needs, and become happier as a result of better boundaries, self-care and engaging in activities that nourish us we become magnetic to better opportunities, love, synchronicity and magic. All because we moved into flow…

Helpful essential oils?

Grapefruit essential oil will promote optimism and help you to be able to feel into what uplifts you and makes you happy. It’s a super choice if you’re feeling a bit flat or blue. It’s a great blend for your diffuser this week if you combine it with Geranium and Palmarosa. Use 2 to 3 drops of each oil in your blend.

Palmarosa stabilises your emotions and rejuvenates you when you are feeling tired or emotionally battered and bruised. It’s gentle nature will help recenter you when you’ve lost your way.

Geranium is brilliant for helping you relax, unwind and get connected to your creative and intuitive essence. It will uplift you and stimulate creativity, self-confidence and emotional flow – all energies that are great for shifting you into a more positive space. If you’re an over-giver and your tank is dry, Geranium oil will fill you back up again. Apply it to your pulse points at wrist, neck and over heart like a perfume. Place a few drops in your bath water. Diffuse it. One of my favourite uses 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.

Follow Your Longing – Monday Oracle 10 December 2018



“The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.”
~  Oprah Winfrey

Hello, Lovelies!

December is a month for planning and dreaming, interspersed with fun, curiosity, friendship and celebration.  Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card Seven of Swords brings us.

This week we’re reminded that our imagination exists for a reason and so do our longings. They create the sparks that make a trail of light through the darkened world, leading us to the things that will give us satisfaction, and for which our soul yearns.

Seven of Swords encourages us to stop wishing and start acting this week. If there is no time for action then at least we can create a plan, we can make decisions, we can choose to make space in the near future for more of what matters in our lives.

Feel into your envies, your frustrations, your jealousies and your hungers this week. Don’t be ashamed of them. Don’t turn away. Be brave enough to look into the face of what they are showing you. Let your soul come alive with desire again. Unchain yourself from the humdrum of duty, obligation and routine. Allow possibility to slip into your heart and illuminate you with hope once more. Vow to yourself that your future can be different, and then make room for that to happen.

Supportive crystals this week?

Petrified Wood (pictured) promotes compassion, wonder, curiosity and benevolence. It is a stone for healing old hurts and allowing hope back into your heart. Amazonite helps you to live bravely and from your heart, especially in regard to your creative projects. It will boost self-confidence and self-worth. Tree Agate heightens your intuition, connecting you to synchronicity, soul wisdom, guides and universal energy. It will help you to work out your priorities and where to best spend your precious energy. Snowflake Obsidian is a wonderful stone for any form of pattern-breaking, helping you to invite or invoke change.

Helpful essential oils?

Coriander essential oil is a good choice for your diffuser this week. It helps you to know yourself, and to reconnect with your truth. To make an effective blend to boost confidence and optimism add Bergamot, Geranium and Cinnamon Bark in a ration of 4:3:2:1.

Cinnamon also gives that lovely spicy Christmassy feel to a blend, helping put you in the holiday mood.

A space to learn and grow

The next four years 2019 – 2022 are significant for our personal and spiritual evolution, as well as for the evolution of our planet. I thought long and hard about the best way to support your growth over that time and have decided that beefing up the content in my YOM membership area was the best way to help you grow, adapt and step more fully into your authenticity and the life-path you chose for yourself pre-birth. You’ll see this membership group evolve into an Academy of Learning over the next twelve months so that my team and I (human and energetic) can serve you the best way I know how.

My membership space is a place where I can walk you through the year, explain all the aspects of the month ahead and the crystals we’ve chosen, where I do special webinars with my tribe to teach you new skills and share important information, and where I channel with my guides in live webinars, and answer your questions and provide general support. I often jump into our private Facebook group to pull cards and bring through messages for our members too. And did I mention what an incredible, loving and supportive space our YOM Community is? There is real friendship and belonging there. It’s a safe space, a heart space, and a place for great personal transformation. I totally heart it!

The format of YOM is constantly evolving. In 2019 you will have access to the foundation YOM online course as well as twelve free additional mini-courses and live events over the next year as well as our wonderful private Facebook group.

There are yearly subscription and monthly subscription options. Our Planner and a range of physical support materials and packs and online courses are available too. Everything you need is available through our store.

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

A Perfectly Wonderful Week For Adventures – Monday Oracle 3 December 2018

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.
~  Roald Dahl

 

Hello, Lovelies!

December is a month for planning and dreaming, interspersed with fun, curiosity, friendship and celebration.  Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card Child of Wands brings us.

This card heralds delightful energies for a week of adventure. For some people that means outings, unexpected invitations or a sudden strong yearning to break free and go do something different instead of being shackled to routine and boredom.

You’ll also find a note of optimism creeping in, and a newfound appreciation for the small details of your life and the world around you.

It’s a week of surprises, inspired thinking, emotional shifts and big breakthroughs. You’ll have an extra store of emotional courage and personal bravery this week, helping you to put yourself out into the world. Child of Wands reminds us that we can go beyond our current limits, and that we can choose to see ourselves and our lives differently – so that a new and brighter future becomes possible. Map those ideas out and begin making a plan. Ideas are no good if they have no action to back them up and turn them from thought into reality.

If you’re a creative soul you’ll find the ideas literally pouring into your brain and body this week, and you’ll feel itchy for some kind of outlet for the expression of all of this energy. Make sure you take the time to capture those ideas in a recording or on paper. Then make a start, no matter how small. It could end up being a life-changing project for you!

Supportive crystals this week?

Petrified Wood promotes compassion, wonder, curiosity and benevolence. It is a stone for healing old hurts and allowing hope back into your heart. Amazonite helps you to live bravely and from your heart, especially in regard to your creative projects. It will boost self-confidence and self-worth. Orange Calcite connects you to inspiration and is great for all forms of creativity. Green Aventurine (pictured) helps you to relax into the flow of life, tapping you into the joy of living and that wonderful feeling of gratitude.

Helpful essential oils?

Hands down it’s Geranium again this week. Geranium is such an underestimated essential oil. With its sweet floral scent it’s brilliant for helping you relax, unwind and get connected to your essence. It will uplift you and stimulate creativity, sensuality and emotional flow – all energies that are great for shifting us into a more creative space. If you’re an over-giver and your tank is dry, geranium oil will fill you back up again.

Apply it to your pulse points at wrist, neck and over heart like a perfume. Place a few drops in your bath water. Diffuse it. One of my favourite uses 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 geranium or any of your favourite essential oils – click here)

For relaxing, enjoying life and lifting your mood try any of these oils on their own or in combination – Wild Orange, Lavender, Geranium, Frankincense and Cinnamon Bark. Cinnamon gives that lovely spicy Christmassy feel to a blend, helping put your house in the holiday mood.

A Week For Clarity and Purpose – Monday Oracle 26 November 2018

“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” ~ C.S. Lewis

 

Hello, Lovelies!

November is an unusual month, gifting us energies in two different but interlinked areas. The first area is spiritual development. It’s a great month for all forms of metaphysical work, for clarifying our Life Path and for honouring a life-calling by owning our capacity to share knowledge. The second area is our connection to the natural world, and to the nature spirits of the Earth. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card Six of Crystals brings us.

I love this card. The message is beautifully summed up by one of my favourite songs from The Sound of MusicClimb Every Mountain. Its message is encouraging us to climb every mountain in pursuit of our dream, or of finding whatever that dream is for us if we don’t know yet. It’s sung by the Abbess to the young nun Maria who is struggling to fit in and find her path.

At the end of the movie the song is played again as a refrain as Maria and the Von Trapp family flee over the mountains into Switzerland to escape Nazi-occupied Austria. Maria has found her dream and committed herself to it completely.

This week we’re encouraged to really step back from our everyday lives and truly think about what our dreams are. Our lives are precious and our dreams matter. Six of Crystals reminds us to keep our dreams at the fore and strive towards them. For some of you this also means that you will be the one leading others on the road you have already travelled as you help them to achieve the things that you already know and practice, or have overcome.

No dream to follow?

Then rest. It’s impossible to be inspired or creative when we are exhausted and dispirited. Take steps to simplify your life and make the changes you need to gently restore your wellbeing and vitality. Spend some time in nature, even if that’s as simple as walking home after work, sitting in the sun at lunchtime or doing some yardwork on the weekend.

Rest – that’s what I’ve been doing as I recover from this latest health hiccup. At first I found it frustrating to be so incapacitated but once I surrendered to it there were many gifts for me in that quiet slow space. Anyway, I’ll tell you more about that tomorrow. I’m easing back into the world, slowly slowly. So grateful for that – I’ve missed you all enormously.

Supportive crystals this week?

Que Sera lifts your vibration and enables you to merge with your own soul knowledge. It’s a stone for personal and spiritual empowerment. 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. Amethyst (pictured) helps you tune in to spiritual guidance and also helps you to think deeply about your dreams and challenges in ways that allow solutions to be found. Tiger Eye will help you focus, make big decisions and act with integrity and courage. Garnet connects you into the fairy realms, to trees and the earth and all nature spirits. It grounds you and helps you to sit in a vibration of wealth and abundance.

Helpful essential oils?

If you’re ready for clarity and direction:  Patchouli essential oil grounds you and opens you to your Higher Self and intuitive wisdom in a gentle and reassuring way. Cedarwood essential oil enhances all forms of spiritual connection, and creates awareness of the natural world and the energies of nature. Arborvitae creates spiritual trust and is grounding and opening – it’s one of my favourite oils, especially when I meditate (use it with a couple of drops of Frankincense and you’ll be flying in your meditations too!). Use these oils in a diffuser, rub on soles of feet or simply drop some into your palms, rub together and inhale.

If you’re exhausted, discouraged or stuck:  Geranium is brilliant for helping you relax, unwind and get connected to your creative and intuitive essence. It will uplift you and stimulate creativity, self-confidence and emotional flow – all energies that are great for shifting you into a more positive space. If you’re an over-giver and your tank is dry, Geranium oil will fill you back up again. Apply it to your pulse points at wrist, neck and over heart like a perfume. Place a few drops in your bath water. Diffuse it. One of my favourite uses 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.

Progress, Connection and Positive Outcomes – Monday Oracle 15 October 2018

“When the path ignites a soul,
there’s no remaining in place.
The foot touches ground,
but not for long.

~  Hakim Sanai

 

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 The Yellow Brick Road brings us.

The Yellow Brick Road is a positive and reassuring card for us this week. It indicates that obstacles are falling away and the path in front of us will become clear. It’s a time for teamwork, co-operation and collaboration. Expect positive outcomes, helpful energies and synchronicities. Been trying to solve a problem or make a decision? This week the energies are lining up to support you in choosing well or having that moment of divine inspiration that shows your best direction forward.

We’re also reminded that friendship is what supports us during times of challenge. If you are feeling alone reach out to others. If you are feeling strong connect into family and friends to check on how they are. If life is great for you, then celebrate! You never need a reason. Being with people whose company you enjoy is good medicine right now. Want to start a creative project? The Yellow Brick Road encourages you to stop thinking and start doing. Little steps, repeated often, will get you to where you want to go.

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. Citrine (pictured) delivers inspiration and motivation and helps you open yourself to feelings of worthiness and possibility. 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.

Helpful essential oils?

Lemon essential oil brings clarity, focus and uplift this week, and is a great oil to diffuse. It promotes a positive mood and helps to manage depression, anxiety and mental fatigue. If you’re super-stressed add a few drops of Lavender, which promotes calm and relaxation. For spiritual connection and Higher Purpose add a little Ylang Ylang too.

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
