A Week For Hope And Good Outcomes – Monday Oracle 16 July 2018

“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” ~ Harriet Tubman

 

Hello, Lovelies!

July’s energies are so heart-full! They are all about love and togetherness. Make sure you find time for the people and things you love in July, and if you’re looking for love know that this is a very supportive month for starting new relationships. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card Jack and the Beanstalk brings us.

Jack and The Beanstalk gifts us messages of hope, good outcomes and of surrendering to a higher power.
We have a chance to overcome our problems this week, especially if we get a little help from someone who has walked that same road and who knows what to be aware of and how to best proceed.
Jack and The Beanstalk reminds us about the unexpected gifts we can find when we follow new roads with a sense of curiosity – even when we don’t know where the road might lead or what our outcome will be. Embracing a spirit of trust and adventure is helpful this week and will serve us well.
There is a sense of things turning a corner for us, of improvements and breakthroughs coming our way. Because this is a month of love it also heralds breakthroughs in our communications with loved ones, solutions and breakthroughs where communication has broken down or hit an impasse, and new opportunities coming our way in love, especially in unexpected ways.
It’s also a strong week for fertility and all forms of creativity, and for planting the little tiny seeds of dreams that can one day grow into something strong and good and true.

 

Supportive crystals this week?

Rose Quartz is a stone of love and nurture – it helps you to be open to the giving
and receiving of love. Yellow Obsidian 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 for embracing change. Smoky Quartz opens you to new possibilities and ideas and amplifies your inner voice.  Sodalite (pictured) will help you express your personal truth and creative energy in thoughts, words and actions.   

Helpful essential oils?

Young Living has a blend called Release which is perfect for this week’s energies. It is an uplifting and nurturing blend of Ylang Ylang, Lavandin, Geranium, Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood, Grapefruit, Tangerine, Spearmint, Lemon, Blue Cypress, Davana, Lime, Ocotea, Jasmine, Matricaria, Blue Tansy, and Rose. It’s an essential oil we use on our retreats to help participants let go of emotional trauma, negative thoughts and beliefs, and old energies and emotions that have become stuck. I love it. It’s like an energetic broom to sweep away the dust and cobwebs, leaving you feeling clean, grounded and ready for what comes next.

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 reconnecting 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 any of your favourite essential oils – click here)

If you can’t get hold of Release then use any of Rose, Jasmine, Geranium or Blue Cypress this week.

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 ourselves. It also helps us to let go of fear, doubt and old emotional pain and hurt.  I often use this oil when I am creating, writing or journalling, or working with cards for myself. 

 You can find the oils here.

I’m holding a Channelling and Guided Meditation Evening from 6 to 9pm at The Yoga Centre, Adelaide tonight.

Come along and meet some of my Guides and energetic companions (including some fairy friends!). They will share information about a range of topics, as well as answering questions from the audience. I rarely conduct channelling sessions outside my retreats, so this is a very special offering. I’ll also be running a Guided Meditation Session to help you with Healing, Connection and Direction.

I’ll be channelling my guides and some fairy friends who’ll be discussing:

  • The differences between Angels and Fairies, and how to call on them
  • How Guides work and how you can connect to your own Guides
  • How to navigate life using your Intuition
  • Five clear ways to tap into your own Inner Wisdom
  • Understanding Karmic Relationships and Soul Groups
  • How to help the planet right now

These nights are always entertaining, educational and often very enlightening. There will also be time for you to ask questions. Tea and coffee will be provided.

Want to bring your kids? I welcome them as long as they are old enough to participate in the meditations and activities and are interested in the kind of content we’ll be sharing. As their parent you’ll know if this event is right for your child. This is not an evening suited to little children.

Tickets are $40 for adults and $20 for children under 17.
You can buy the tickets here by clicking on the link below:

A Week For Love And Heart Healing – Monday Oracle 9 July 2018

“We must serve each other in love and in humanity.
~  Aberjhani

 

Hello, Lovelies!

July’s energies are so heart-full! They are all about love and togetherness. Make sure you find time for the people and things you love in July, and if you’re looking for love know that this is a very supportive energy for starting new relationships. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card Two of Hearts brings us.

This week focuses on two areas – connection and emotional healing.

It’s a week for deepening existing unions, for breakthroughs where there has been stuckness and forgiveness where there has been pain.

If you’re seeking a new relationship this is the week to put yourself out there, to make the first move, to be brave enough to say yes to that invitation or to ask that person out for a coffee.

Suffering from a broken heart? This week is a good time to get counselling to help put yourself back together.

This is an exceptional week for connecting with friends and family and for any kind of reunion or reconnection with people with whom you’ve lost touch.

This week also supports spiritual awakening and metaphysical connection, art and all forms of self-expression, art as therapy and the joy of being in flow with doing what you love.

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?

Rose Essential Oil is my choice this week. This sweet and uplifting oil inspires deep emotional connection and opens our heart chakra to love. It enhances our mood, helps to balance hormones, brings emotional healing and draws joy and peace into our lives. 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. 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)

If you can’t access a pure rose essential oil,  try Ylang-Ylang, which opens our hearts and minds, helping us to feel deserving and open to abundance.

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 ourselves.

A Week For Letting Go – Monday Oracle 11 June 2018

“Some people believe holding on and hanging in there are signs of great strength. However, there are times when it takes much more strength to know when to let go and then do it.” 
Ann Landers

 

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 Eight of Hearts brings us this week.

The energies this week support a gentle letting go of the things that have been weighing us down.

There doesn’t need to be a struggle or a big dramatic scene. In fact, the very best kind of letting go is one where we decide to let something go with grace and ease.

Eight of Hearts reminds us that letting go lightens us energetically. It feels good to let go of the things have burdened us. Whatever it is that is dragging you down, keeping you stuck or sad or sick, be prepared to let go this week. Decide you don’t need to keep thinking about your ex anymore. Decide to stop smoking and then do it. No need to make a big fuss. No need for big declarations or public posts about your decision. Just decide, make a plan, act.

Decide that you don’t need to keep eating food that makes you feel bloated and tired. Then stick to it today. Repeat again tomorrow. And if you mess up forgive yourself and then keep going. Decide that you’re going to sing or write or paint or dance just because you want to. Decide to clear your clutter. Decide to let go of thinking you have to do everything yourself.

Decide that you don’t need to stay in a bad relationship. Decide that you don’t need to stay in a lousy job. Decide that you don’t need another family Christmas where everyone ends up fighting. Decide to get a cleaner. Decide to get your tax done. Decide to see the doctor.

Letting go is an act of empowerment. And when we let go, and remain empty for a while, better things come and fill the void we have created, because as we lighten our energy from the letting go, things of a lower vibration will no longer be in alignment and we’ll stop attracting them. Letting go in one area often brings opportunities, miracles and advancement in another.

So this week, lighten up by letting go!

 

Supportive crystals this week?

Smoky Quartz keeps you grounded, gifting inner strength and the ability to
listen deeply to your own needs. Labradorite encourages self-care, supports empathy and intuition, and is a gentle and reassuring stone for developing psychic ability. Sodalite will help you express your truth in thoughts, words and actions. Garnet (pictured) will gift you courage and determination, and reconnect you to your passion.

A Week For Self-Care! Monday Oracle 4 June 2018

““We are all butterflies. Earth is our chrysalis.” 
~  LeeAnn Taylor

 

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 Seven of Wands brings us.

This week we’re encouraged to make choices that support our healing and rejuvenation journey. Think extreme self-care! This isn’t just about diet and exercise, although making healthy choices and being more active is always a good idea.

For some people what will be needed most this week is early nights.

For others it might be a massage, or spending some time on personal maintenance – you know; having a manicure, getting your hair done or buying some new clothes. A little strategic pampering can go a long way this week.

What you might need most this week is a walk on the beach, a night staying up late listening to your favourite music, or a trip to the movies.

You might even need to do some unpleasant things that will ultimately benefit you, such as going to the dentist, getting your will made or seeking legal advice.

Whatever you decide, make choices that support you and help you to feel nourished, loved, uplifted and cared for – especially for all of you who spend the majority of your time looking after everybody else.

Supportive crystals this week?

Smoky Quartz keeps you grounded, gifting inner strength and the ability to
listen deeply to your own needs. Labradorite (pictured) encourages self-care, supports empathy and intuition, and is a gentle and reassuring stone for developing psychic ability. Rose Quartz is extremely nurturing, helping you to act and speak kindly and lovingly towards yourself. Larimar is also a good choice. This pretty blue stone will help you to speak your needs, and acknowledge where you are stuck, out of flow or in need of healing and change. A super stone for calling in healing on all levels.

Helpful essential oils?

Geranium is my choice 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. 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)

If you’re completely strung out then Lavender Essential Oil will calm your mind and body. Use in the same way as outlined above for Geranium Essential Oil.

 You can find the oils here.

Easter Egg Oracle for 2018

“Hedwig didn’t return until the end of the Easter holidays. Percy’s letter was enclosed in a package of Easter eggs that Mrs. Weasley had sent. Both Harry’s and Ron’s were the size of dragon eggs, and full of home-made toffee. Hermione’s, however, was smaller than a chicken’s egg. Her face fell when she saw it.
“Your mum doesn’t read Witch’s Weekly, by any chance, does she, Ron?” she asked quietly.
“Yeah,” said Ron, whose mouth was full of toffee. “Gets it for the recipes.”
Hermione looked sadly at her tiny egg.”

~ J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

It’s Easter!

If you lived closer I’d pop over with some Hot Cross Buns or some Easter Eggs and we could sit and have a cuppa and a chat. But the Cauldrons and Cupcakes family is a global community so my Easter Gift to you will have to be a virtual one.

Today’s blog gives you a mini-reading. It’s not a fortune-telling exercise; instead it’s about seeing yourself and your life from a fresh perspective. All you need to do is scroll through the pictures of my Easter Eggs, and choose the one that appeals to you most. Then go further down the page to read the meaning for the Easter treat you have chosen.

♥♥♥ Love, love, love to you, Nicole xoxo ♥♥♥

♥ The Message and Gift of each Treat♥

Each Easter Treat has a message for you. I have also selected a crystal to best support the message and energies of your choice.  You could wear or hold this crystal, pop it in your pocket, under your pillow or beside your bed. (If you’d like to know more about working with crystals click here) The Power Word is a word to remind yourself of the quality you most need and that you are strongly attracting right now.  You can turn it into your own personal mantra by saying “I choose ___________ ” (insert your Power Word). Your Magical Healing Environment is a place or activity you’ll find supportive and healing.

♥ Henny Penny’s Magical Eggs ! – From Little things Big Things Grow! You are given your ideas and feelings for a reason. You’re coming into a time of great change and shift, and all of it for your own best outcomes and results. All of those niggling feelings and tiny ideas for change need to be given light and space so that they can grow into something tangible, creating a map for you to follow from lost back to being on track again. It’s a wonderful year ahead. Be brave and keep going. Don’t be afraid to make BIG changes. It’s your year for that. And all of this change will lead to stability, harmony and peace.  Best Crystal – Ametrine (or an Amethyst and a Citrine)  ♥ Power Word – Transformation  Magical Healing Environment – Quiet time in nature or spaces that nurture and inspire you.  Nature walks, ocean swims, watching the snow or rain fall as you sit inside drinking a warm drink with your journal by your side, being in an art gallery or favourite cafe, a museum or a beautiful garden.

 More Fun with Friends!  – Life is a journey that’s meant to be shared! What’s needed in your life right now is fun, connection and companionship. A family movie and pizza night, a dinner out with friends, a holiday with your bestie, a camping trip or a cooking workshop. This isn’t online connection – you need skin time, face-to-face time. Make new friends or re-connect to old ones. Reconnect to activities and places that were important to you in the past. Plan a party or a get-together. Work less. Live more. And if you’re in love and it’s all going well? Make that bigger commitment!  Best Crystal – Ruby in Fuchsite   Power Word – Connection  Magical Healing Environment – Anywhere that lets you be in the same space with other people in ways that support or entertain you. This could be your backyard barbeque area, a restaurant, a classroom, or a coffee shop. It could be a weekend music festival or a pottery class, a birthday bash or a school reunion. It could also be a wedding or a baby shower 🙂

 Handmade Organic Chocolate Truffles – Indulging in mindful pleasure!  On one level you are completely exhausted, my beautiful friend. And yet you keep pushing on. It’s time to bring pleasure and down-time back into your life. It’s time to get out of your head and back into your body. Better to choose one exquisite thing than a bucket full of mediocre. It’s time for quality rest and recreation and for gifting yourself the time and space to reinvent and recharge yourself.  It’s also a time for conscious eating and mindful movement as you chart a path back to balance, wellness and emotional satisfaction.  Best Crystal – Garnet  ♥ Power Word – Slow  ♥ Magical Healing Environment – anything that reconnects you to your senses.  Bubble baths, clean sheets, music, sleep, good books, dancing, lying in dappled sunlight on soft green grass, beautiful healthy food, exquisite small indulgences, essential oils, fresh flowers, warm embraces.

 My Special Project! – A Focus On Love! You are lovable. You are worthy of love. If you’re in an existing relationship it’s time to give that relationship some extra love and care. Give yourself permission to fall in love all over again. Love isn’t a fairy tale. It’s fun and hard and tears and magic and pain and growth and sharing. But it’s also incredible! Haven’t found that special someone yet? Know that love is in the air. Love isn’t just romantic love – it’s friends and family too. Go be with them! Happy on your own? Then it’s time for some self-love and acceptance of yourself just as you are. Love those quirks and bumpy bits. Your very existence is sacred. You are a miracle. There is always someone out there for you, and who will love you just as you are, just like you’ll love them. Start to believe that.  Best Crystal – Moonstone   Power Word – Cherish   Magical Healing Environment – Sitting in your heart, and being with your loved ones. Life isn’t scripted, and romance and love grow in the heart of the everyday. Our job is to be mindful so that we can be in that moment and help that love grow. Put your screens down and be present. Don’t be afraid to give yourself a makeover too, if that helps you feel good about yourself and how you walk this world.

 Golden Fancy! – Creative Talents and Ideas! There is something that only you can bring to the world. Your gifts and talents are meant to be shared. It might make a big impact on many people. It might change the life of just one. But if you don’t work to shine your light and share your gifts a little part of our timeline will forever stay darkened., because no-one can replace you and your offerings. No-one. It’s time to move from procrastination to action. It’s time to value your ideas and gifts and to dream your dreams into being. There is so much energetic support for you. All manner of help and miracle-making at your fingertips. So, what’s stopping you? Only self-doubt, and we don’t have time for that anymore. We need you to just get out there and do your thing.  Best Crystal – Smoky Quartz  Power Word – Authentic  Magical Healing Environment – Your creative lair, office or art space, or wherever else you make your magic. Which could be the garden, kitchen, or the counselling couch. This is not a time for learning or planning, it’s a time for doing and being! Thank you for being you.

 Green, Green, Green! – Wherever You Go, There You Are! What’s needed for you right now is a sense of sanctuary.  It might be your bedroom, your study, your altar, your backyard. It might be your writing space or your office. It might be your entire home. It needs to be clean. It needs to be comfortable. It needs to make your heart feel glad. It needs to be a space that reflects who you are and what you love. Move if you have to. It’s okay to end and begin things now. And if the mess is inside you, get help with that. Do whatever it takes to bring yourself back to a place of inner peace and calm. ♥ Best Crystal – Snowflake Obsidian  ♥ Power Word – Sanctuary ♥ Magical Healing Environment – Home (whatever that means to you).  Create a space that allows you to feel safe, comfortable, supported and surrounded by beauty and meaning. Start with one small corner. Simple is fine. De-clutter. Make space for rest and new growth.

♥ Elegant Simplicity – Levelling Up Spiritually.  Spiritual connection and flow is not a difficult or complicated process, although we often try to make it that way. You are coming into a time of deeper connection, deeper knowing, and deeper intuition. Give yourself some breathing space to contemplate the bigger questions in your life. Make time for reading, meditation and journalling. Expect a bigger connection to God, your Guides and Angels and your own Wise Self. Expect answers to those big questions, and a clarity about your way forward. All is well.   Best Crystal – Lapis Lazuli   Power Word – Become  ♥ Magical Healing Environment – Sacred Spaces or alone time. Churches and temples, parks, sitting under old trees, your meditation corner, a library or a quiet corner of the house when no-one else is home.

 Which Came First? – Troubles Falling Away!  Sometimes it’s hard to know what happens first… Our troubles begin to resolve so we begin to feel better, or we begin to feel better so our troubles resolve. Any way it happens, know that things are finally looking up for you. BUT you need to let go of the old story about all your troubles too. Open to the possibility that things can change for the better. Even if you never quite understand how or why.  Prayers answered, breakthroughs and an end to going round and round in circles going nowhere. Hooray!  Best Crystal – Tiger Eye   Power Word – Blessings  Magical Healing Environment – Your life! Nothing specific you need to do, and nowhere you need to be. It’s all progressing beautifully. Soon you’ll see that shift you’ve been hoping for.

Monday Oracle – 5 February 2018

“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” 
Antoine de Saint-ExupéryThe Little Prince

 

Hello, Lovelies!

In February we are building on the strength and intuitive connection we found for ourselves at the beginning of the year. February brings opportunities for planning, learning and growing in order to bring about positive change. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of awareness which the oracle card Seeker of Hearts brings us.

This week we open to the understanding that it’s okay to live from our heart, to come from our truth, and to honour our emotions. The Seeker of Hearts reminds us that when we are brave enough to show our true self and feel our feelings magic begins to happen in our lives. Tell people how you feel. Allow yourself to be moved by art or beauty or kindness. Offer forgiveness or friendship to others. Looking for love? Seeker of Hearts encourages you to put yourself out there and to trust that you can find a new relationship. Let your heart lead the way.

The Seeker of Hearts will also show you where you need to protect your heart or call it back to yourself.

Pour your heart into what you love this week. Don’t be afraid to care deeply, in business or your art or in relationships or anything else. It’s that music of your heart, expressed through your words and actions, that will make you or your work magnetic to the right people and situations.

Supportive crystals this week?

Banded Agate (pictured) creates a sense of safety, peace and belonging as you open up to living more fully as yourself. Great if you feel anxious about speaking up or sharing your gifts with the world! Sunstone helps you to sit in a place of abundance thinking so that you see the blessings and possibilities in life. Rose Quartz opens your heart to love and helps you to express and receive love. Ocean Jasper is a healing stone that helps you to feel at home wherever you are, including feeling at home in yourself. To use these stones simply pop them in your pocket, or wear them somewhere on your body. They are also good to hold in meditation or to place under your pillow before sleep.

 

Helpful essential oils?

Rose essential oil is my pick for this week. Its sweet floral aroma is uplifting and heart opening. To bring romance into your world Geranium and Jasmine are also excellent choices. Apply a dab to wrists, neck and over heart as a perfume or diffuse. They are also heavenly in your bathwater.

Want to make your own blend? Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own for you this week, but they’ll also make a great combination for diffusing. Ylang Ylang restores confidence in ourselves and our decisions and is supportive when we feel anxious or overwhelmed, Rose opens our heart to love and heals old emotional hurts, Orange promotes joy, gratitude and optimism and Geranium is great for stress reduction and emotional balance, and for evoking a sense of peace and goodwill. To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser. You can find the oils here.

PS: Monday’s oracle card, ‘Seeker of Hearts’, is from the Inner Child Cards – A Fairy-Tale Tarot. I use any cards shown as a prompt for channeled messages and my own own intuitive wisdom, so my take is sometimes quite different to the meaning found in a book. 

Monday Oracle – 22 January 2018

 “One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star. – Friedrich Nietzsche

 

Hello, Lovelies!

January is a month for easing ourselves into the energies of 2018, for resting and recharging, for planning and dreaming and for tuning in to what can support us in the year ahead. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of awareness which the oracle card 4 of Hearts brings us.

Hot on the heels of the New Moon in Capricorn, which encouraged and inspired us to look to our future and what we are willing to commit to in order to make those dreams manifest, 4 of Hearts brings the awareness this week that some of our cherished dreams need to be let go, because in our hearts we are not committed to making them happen. We’re not ever going to put in the work required, or we are no longer in synch with this old dream or ideal. Hanging on to the old dream stops us from being able to evolve and grow towards something more suited to our highest good.

4 of Hearts reminds us that when we let go of the old we make room for something new to come our way. It’s okay to grieve broken and lost dreams this week, but once your tears are dry and you’ve felt and acknowledged your emotions expect a new surge of inspiration and direction to find you in the days and weeks ahead.

This week you may also feel exhausted and like you can’t possibly go on – that things will never change, and you will never get the outcome you desire. In the old energy of years past we struggled on our own. In this new 2018 energy of connection and community know that there will be help from outside your own efforts. Friends will turn up. Helpful people will appear. New information will become available. Expect a turnaround, a breakthrough, a renewal of hope this week. And know that for some you, this week is about you becoming that hope and guidance for others!

Supportive crystals this week?

Any double-terminated crystal or cluster of crystals from the quartz family (think clear quartz, smoky, amethyst or citrine) placed in the room where you spend most of your time will amplify your ability to connect to your inner wisdom and to become inspired through new thoughts, imagination and divine guidance.  Selenite (pictured) helps you to be kind to yourself and is fantastic for gently guiding you inwards. Red Jasper is a stone for mental, physical and emotional rejuvenation. Deeply grounding, it helps you connect to your heart and your truth and encourages a sense of safety. Green Chrysoprase opens your heart and helps you find the courage to live the life that calls you.

Helpful essential oils?

This week I’m using Young Living’s Inspiration blend. Inspiration helps me to release negative thoughts and emotions, beat procrastination and enhance my spiritual connection. Its fragrance is grounding and uplifting, and I also find that instills me with a quiet optimism. Dab a drop on your Third Eye, back of neck, over your heart, wrists and the soles of your feet, inhale directly or add to your diffuser. It’s also a gorgeous addition to your bath water.

Want to make your own blend? Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own for you this week, but they’ll also make a great combination for diffusing. Cedarwood is calming, gives a sense of security and helps us overcome self doubt. Ylang Ylang opens our hearts and is supportive when we feel anxious or overwhelmed, Frankincense calms and connects us, promoting emotional balance and Bergamot brings joy, gratitude and optimism.  To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser. You can find the oils here.

Want some extra help for our year ahead?

Go grab one of my Year of ME Planners over at my Store (ME stands for Manifesting Energies, and the energies of 2018 are fabulous!) The digital full-year planner can be in your inbox in minutes, ready for you to review 2017 and begin mapping out what matters for you in 2018.

My 2017 Christmas Gift Oracle For You With Love!

“I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.” 
~ Charles Dickens

 

Hello Lovelies,

So here we are – another Christmas is upon us.

It’s a joyful time for some, and a trying time for others, and I wanted to acknowledge that, and to remind you that there is always a place here at my table for you. I’m sending you love this Christmas, and remembering you in my thoughts, prayers and meditations.

Now, come sit down with me. Let me pour you a cup of tea while I tell you how glad I am to have you in my life. I’m so grateful to have you as part of our community as we share this journey of life together. Thank you!

A cup of tea for us, under the Jacaranda tree here at my farm!

Once again I have created an oracle for you. The very first one I ever posted was The Healing Power of Flowers and Fairy Blessings.  We offered a selection of flowers for you to choose from, and each flower came with a message – a mini-reading if you will. It was so well received that I’ve been creating oracles for you ever since.

Today I’m so pleased to offer you another of my Magical Oracles! This time, I’d like you to choose the Christmas Gift that appeals to you the most. Then take your time to unwrap it and receive its message and blessings for you.

Instructions for using today’s post

Scroll down through the following Christmas Gift images and then let yourself come back to the one you are most drawn to.

When you have chosen your gift, scroll further down for your oracle message. Trust that what you most need to know is exactly what you shall choose.

Wherever you are, and whatever your faith and beliefs, I wish you peace today and the days ahead, and joy in your heart. Know that you are loved. Know that you matter to me. I intend only the best for you, and that 2018 be a year that is richly satisfying and filled with love and kindness.

Love and Light,

Nicole ❤ xx

The Week Ahead – Oracle for Monday 14 August 2017

“Life has its sunshine and its rain, sir… its days and its nights… its peaks and its valleys…” 
― Charles M. Schulz

Hello, Lovelies,

Here’s Monday’s oracle card, and my energetic forecast for the week ahead. I use any cards shown as a prompt for channelled messages and my own intuitive wisdom, so my take is sometimes quite different to the meaning found in a book. ‘Dissipating’ is from the Chakra Wisdom Oracle Deck by Tori Hartman.

If you read my forecast for August, you’ll remember that August brings an emerging energy of creativity, emotional healing and an abiding need for more balance in our lives. 

Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts Dissipating brings us this week.

So last week was one of the finest weeks for creativity I’ve seen in a long time, and the energies of that creative and spiritual connection carry over this week until Tuesday evening. (Need a refresh on last week’s forecast? Click here.)

But what happens after that?

All that creative headwind starts to dissipate. Some of you might consider the dip in energies which begins on Wednesday to be a slump. Suddenly you’ll move from being bright and full of enthusiasm for your projects to that place of questioning your very ideas, or worse. (Maybe you know that space that is so familiar to creatives – the “I suck, my ideas suck, this all sucks” space.)

Don’t give in to the blahs and start looking for a new bright shiny dream or project to chase after this week. The lower, slower energies are actually well suited to rest, reflection and topping up your creative tank. All projects and ideas need to sit for a while after they are first made. This enables us to come back to them with fresh eyes so that we can review and edit them to shape them into something even better than our first efforts.

This week shows you how to stick with an existing idea or project until the energy begins to ramp up again. It encourages you to create sustainably and to ride the cycles of creativity that ebb and flow in your life.

Supportive crystals this week?

Nephrite Jade (Greenstone) is a stone that supports heart-centred living and emotional expression in life and in art. Carnelian energises and grounds the physical body and aids all forms of healing and creativity – great for overcoming exhaustion and burnout. Turquoise encourages empathy, compassion and the ability to slow down and stay grounded. Amethyst helps us to tune in to all forms of spiritual guidance.

Helpful essential oils?

Young Living’s Abundance essential oil blend, or a combination (or singly!) of any of Orange, Geranium, Frankincense and Myrrh. Abundance opens us to the flow of life, helping us to act from a place of love, trust and benevolence. Just rub a drop together in the palms of your hands and then breathe in and wipe through your aura.  Dab a few drops on your wrists or over your heart – its warm, spicy aroma makes it a great perfume or cologne. A few drops in the bath are wonderful too. You may want to dilute with a drop or two of a base oil such a sweet almond or coconut before applying directly to the skin.  It’s my oil of choice in my diffuser this week. 

I choose to use Young Living essential oils because of their quality and energies. You can find all the oils here.

This week hold true to your creative dreams, rest when you need to and make some time for deepening your connection to your project or your dreams. Holding you, as always, in my thoughts, prayers and meditations, and intending for a you a life of abundance and joy, where you are no longer limited by your doubts.

All my love,

Nicole ❤ xx

 

Feather Oracle – For Inspiration and Guidance

“Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul – and sings the tunes without the words – and never stops at all.”
~ Emily Dickinson

Every night at my farm a big owl alights on my clothesline. I feel very safe and loved in the presence of this owl. Often I am left a gift of a feather. I am always finding feathers at the farm. Feathers from crows and eagles, feathers from owls and black cockatoos, feathers from ducks and parrots and pigeons, magpie feathers and more. When I find one I always feel a sense of guidance. So I got to thinking that maybe you would like some guidance too.

Instructions for using today’s post

Let each image speak to you in its own way.  One of them will have wisdom just for you!

Scroll down through the following Feather images and then let yourself come back to the one you are most drawn to.

When you have chosen your Feather, scroll further down for your message. Take what resonates for you, and apply it in your life over the coming weeks.

Trust that you will be shown what you most need to know right now.

Love and Light,

Nicole ♥ xx

♥ The Message and Gift of each Feather ♥

Each Feather image has a message for you. I have also selected a crystal to best support the message and energies of your chosen Feather.  You could wear or hold this crystal, pop it in your pocket, under your pillow or beside your bed. (If you’d like to know more about working with crystals click here.) The Action Step is a tangible step you can take to begin incorporating this wisdom in your life.

1.  White Feather:

♥ Message – It’s time to integrate your ideas into the real world. What ideas you have. What dreams, hopes and possibilities! You have spent so much of your life dreaming and contemplating, and your inner world is rich. Now is the time to give all of this thought-form energy a tangible shape in your reality. Whatever your dream or idea might be it’s time to start making it real by bringing it into the world we live in, piece by piece. Start the project, commit to study, enact the plan, get words on the page or paint on the boards. Begin, begin, begin! The Universe is encouraging your every action.

♥ Crystal – Tiger Eye  

♥ Action Step – Spend a little time journalling this week, thinking about an idea or plan that is currently only in your head. Begin to tease it out onto the page. What might this idea look like in the real world? Where might you start? Who or what could support you? Start to give your idea some form. BE brave in your ambitions, even if the beginning will be small.

 

2.  Crow Feather:

♥ Message – Prepare for Transformation. Crow energy appears when we are going through times of great emotional and spiritual growth. You are being called to stand in your truth, to honour your inner voice, and to bravely step into the unknown. For now you might be the student. For now you might be the teacher. Know that there is something bigger at work here. Know that you signed up for this. Stop fussing around in your ego and surrender to the current that is already tugging at your ankles. Why fight it? It’s what you came here to do.

♥ Crystal – Smoky Quartz

♥ Action Step – Spend some time each day in solitude. Go to a place that helps you feel expanded and sit quietly. Wait. Wait with an energy of expectation. Turn up every day, or as often as you can. Don’t do anything. Just sit. Be patient. Use the time to relax and become calm and clear. Bring a journal with you for when you become inspired and need to write things down so that you’ll remember them.

 

3.  Blue and Purple Feather:

♥ Message – Design your life around your ideals. You never came to this life to be pedestrian, to be the same as everyone else. Your feet dance to a different drum, your heart quickens to a different song. Stop trying to conform. In small ways, let your individuality shine – even if your day job is streets away from your inner purpose and your soul’s magic. Give thought to what your values are, and do all you can to live authentically, according to what is important to you. You are driven by integrity, so give yourself permission to make your values and ideals a bigger and more visible focus in your life.

♥ Crystal – Ruby in Fuchsite 

♥ Action Step – Find ways to live a life that is meaningful to you. If you care about the environment, recycle and say no to plastic bags. If education is your soap box, volunteer at a literacy program. If art and creativity is your driving passion visit a gallery or join an art class – be a little ‘arty’ in how you present yourself to the world. LIVE by your inner compass. Let your life be a tribute to the whispers of your heart.

 

4.  Reflections Feather:

♥ Message – We succeed by standing on the shoulders of those who have gone before us. All of us can shine by building on the actions, knowledge and guidance of those who have succeeded where we desire to also make our mark. Right now you are a rough diamond. The talent is there. The capability is there. But you need to be polished up in order to have greater value to yourself and the world. Not value from an ego perspective – value in relation to what you can positively contribute to the world. It’s time to grow; to find mentors, coaches and teachers; to truly value your gifts and work hard to hone them into something more than you currently hold in your hands. You’re being called on to turn your great potential into reality – with the help of knowledgeable others who have gone before.

♥ Crystal – Fluorite

♥ Action Step – Learning! Read books, attend courses, find people to share their knowledge with you and to hone your existing skills. Determine to be the best you can be at this thing that is burning a hole within you. Turn that frustration into fire and channel all of that energy into success.

 

5. Peacock Feather:

♥ Message – Value yourself. Treat yourself as a rare and special soul, worthy of love, care and respect. Peacocks don’t have vanity – peacocks have a strong sense of their own identity, and a regal self respect. It’s not vain to care about your physical appearance, your diet, your health and well-being. It’s not being precious to expect others to be respectful and polite in their dealings with you. And it is essential that being treated well starts with yourself!

♥ Crystal – Moonstone

♥ Action Step – It’s time to give yourself a make-over in some aspect of your life. Maybe you need to attend to diet and exercise, maybe you need a haircut or to update your wardrobe, maybe you need friends and lovers who treat you better! It may even be that you need to stand up for yourself in business. Look inside your heart and you’ll see where you need to begin.

 

6.  Tawny Owl Feather:

♥ Message – Trust in Synchronicity and keep asking for what you need. You are well loved, and much of that love comes from realms other than the one in which we live. Know that right now you are being very strongly guided and supported, that there are signs everywhere to encourage and direct you, that the veil is thin between this world and the next. Open yourself to this love and support. Expect magic and miracles. Expect resolution of difficulties and obstacles.

♥ Crystal – Turquoise

♥ Action Step – Spend some time in nature. Spend some time on your own. Pray, journal, meditate and stay open to messengers, guidance and intuition. Use tools such as crystals, tarot and other messenger cards, runes and other divination items if it feels right. Ask once, and be guided by the answer, whatever that may be. Stay open to possibility and to acting on insights.

 

7.  Parrot Feathers:

♥ Message – Find your tribe and step out of social isolation. You know the old expression – birds of a feather flock together! You are a beautiful bird, and you need to find other ‘birds’ with similar interests and values. Don’t do this alone. Let yourself be supported, and grow by supporting others. Allow yourself to be multi-faceted. Our diversity is a beautiful thing. Maybe you’ll need a craft group,  a meditation group, a permaculture club. There is no one group that will meet every need, so fly a while with birds going in a direction you want to be travelling in and know it’s okay to stop when you need to, or to meet up with a different flock flying the other way. Embrace life and the joy of sharing and belonging!

♥ Crystal – Jasper – whichever kind you’re drawn to! 

♥ Action Step – Look in the papers. Read the community notice boards. Google. Find a group, or create a group of your own. Join a class. Go to a workshop or retreat. Travel. Expand your horizons by expanding your social circle. Allow yourself to be supported in your interests, with others who share your passion.

 

8: Emu Feather:

♥ Message – Emu feathers appear when we’re ready to forgive and let go of something significant that has been an anchor weighing us down for much of our lives. There is nothing more to be gained by holding onto this heavy thing inside you. It’s time to forgive yourself, and anyone else involved. We can never have a complete understanding of our path, or the path of others, while we remain in our body. Things take on a different significance as we let go of the emotions and find the lessons and gifts. Sometimes we don’t even need to do that. The thing has happened. Life has moved on, and we’ve been holding this heavy rock for so long that we can’t clearly remember WHY anymore. But the heavy rock drains and exhausts us, and its energy taints everything that we do and that we are. It’s time for forgiveness. Let yourself be free of this burden.

♥ Crystal – Clear or included Quartz

♥ Action Step – Write it out and burn it, have a healing, dance it out, create a meaningful ceremony, or simply offer up a prayer or words and intention that mean something to you. Involve others if it feels right, but also know that forgiveness is a personal act about freeing YOU, and does not need to involve others for it to be effective as a force within you.
