Why You Need Time for Yourself This Week! – Monday Oracle 20 February 2017

“Don’t die with your music still in you.”
~ Wayne Dyer

 

Hello, Lovelies.

It’s a big week ahead for putting your own needs front and centre in your life!

The oracle card I have chosen to guide us this week is ‘Service’ is from the Chakra Wisdom Oracle Deck by Tori Hartman.

If you read my forecast for February, you’ll remember that February is all about turning inwards, and tuning in to our own wants and needs, staying true to ourselves and our goals despite our fears or what other people may tell us. Keep that in the back of your mind as you read through the rest of this post.

 

So, what gifts does Service bring for you this week?

It’s a big wake-up call!

Usually (especially for Lightworkers and sensitive souls) our first thought when we think of service is to serve others.

This week, we are on notice that service must begin with us – we must look after ourselves and our own needs and dreams. This isn’t selfish. You cannot give to others from an empty cup. It’s important to fill your own cup first!

If you’re coming into this week already exhausted, take action to get this sorted out before exhaustion becomes burnout. Stubbornness might carry you through in the short-term, but if it is employed as a daily coping mechanism to push past fatigue or misery, it will never end well. Cut back your schedule. Cancel or rearrange things. Rest. Retreat. Take a ‘mental health’ day, or at least a few extra hours for yourself.

This week is a good time to plan for or take action on personal maintenance issues too. You know, those things that are so easy to put off, and put off… Your yearly health check or pap smear, a dental check-up, a haircut or shopping for new clothes or shoes, fixing that broken thing that you never quite get around to, getting your tax sorted. Let yourself be a priority for a change. Go do those things you’ve been avoiding or making a low priority while you run around after everyone else.

Service also reminds us that the last day of our lives is not the time to realise that we never lived true to ourselves and our dreams.  Putting the hopes, needs and dreams of other people before our own is part of the problem. When we constantly put others first, we instruct the Universe that it’s okay for us to be second best, and for our own needs to go unaddressed.

But is that really true? Are we really okay with that?

I love Wayne Dyer’s quote at the top of this page, ‘Don’t die with your music still inside you.’  We don’t know how much time we have. We don’t know what tomorrow will bring. So, if there’s something inside you that needs to be expressed or experienced don’t keep putting it off. Because we all run out of time. Make a start. Let go of grand plans and just begin.

Supportive crystals this week?

Carnelian will support you if you are tired, unwell or plain burned out! Add White Howlite to this if you are struggling with depression, anxiety or overwhelm. Just 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. And if you’re looking for a stone to help you commit time and action to your dreams, you can’t go past Ametrine!

Helpful essential oils? 

Young Living’s Joy or Common Sense essential oil blends, or  a combination (or singly!) of any of Rose, Rosemary, Lemon, Vetiver and Lavender. The Joy blend is fabulous if you are feeling anxious or uncertain, or a bit sad or stuck. It’s reassuring and uplifting; wonderful for gently shifting depression and self-doubt. I often wear it as a perfume. Common Sense oil is a super stress-buster that will help with allowing you to become clear about what you want, and to feel secure with your choices and decisions, especially around change. It’s my oil of choice in my diffuser this week.

 

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

‘Service’ is from the Chakra Wisdom Oracle Deck by Tori Hartman.  I use any oracle or tarot 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 or traditionally ascribed to a particular card.

Valentine Chocolate Oracle

valentines-oracle-ver-3

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”
~ Pablo Neruda

 

Valentine’s Day has a wonderful sentiment – that we should celebrate love and lovers, that we should name the emotions that often sit silent in our heart.

But why have just one day for the celebration of love?  Why not live with that sense of appreciation and joy every day! And of course it’s not just for the young, for couples, and for romantic love.  Love is an emotion that is available to us all.

Today’s blog gives you a mini-reading about love, in many different forms. It’s not a fortune-telling exercise for finding a soul mate, instead it’s about letting more love into your life. All you need to do is scroll through the pictures of my Valentine Chocolates, and choose the one that appeals to you most. Then go further down the page to read the meaning for the chocolate treat you have chosen.

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

♥ The Love Message and Gift of each Chocolate♥

Each Valentine Chocolate has a message for you. I have also selected a crystal to best support the message and energies of your chocolate 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.

♥ Kaleidoscope of Colour! – Celebrating the joys of life! Life is about living – not just existing! It’s time to enjoy life’s everyday offerings a little more. Take yourself out to a movie or an art exhibition. Meet a friend for coffee. Go to a concert. Visit someplace near home that you haven’t been before. Go shopping somewhere you’ve always wanted to visit and just appreciate all the choices available to you. Pack a picnic and go visit a favourite outdoor place or picnic on the lounge-room floor of a loved one’s space!  *If you’re in a relationship, or happy on your own, spend your time exploring the world outside your front door. Change up your routines. Find the pleasure in life again! If you’re single think of joining an interest or dinner group – it’s time to put yourself out into the world.   Best Crystal – Rutilated Quartz  ♥ Power Word – Enjoyment  Magical Healing Environment – Anywhere that reminds you of the blessings and opportunities in your life.  Wandering through the city or your favourite mall, an art gallery or favourite cafe, a florist shop or a beautiful garden.

Celebration Ball!  – Treating yourself well and living your best life! It’s time to value yourself more. You might need a mini-make-over – a new hairstyle, a manicure, a new perfume or cologne, some new clothes that truly suit you and make you look and feel good. It might be time to sort your health out, join that yoga group, and throw out all the junk food. Or maybe it’s time to enrol in that study you’ve always dreamed about. This is your one beautiful life – not some dress rehearsal. You won’t get a chance to do this life over, so make every moment count.  *If you’re in a relationship, refresh the energies with some together time and appreciation. Maybe plan a holiday together, or take yourselves out for a special dinner. If you’re happily single, think about your dreams and goals and make one of them a priority. Make sure your life is rich with meaning and satisfaction. If you’re looking for love, aim high. No renovators delights for you. If love doesn’t elevate you and make you feel safe, warm and cherished it’s not worth settling for.  Best Crystal – Citrine   Power Word – Self-worth  Magical Healing Environment – Anywhere that makes you feel good about yourself. This could be a day spa, a session with a personal stylist, time with your wise and loving Nana, a yoga class or a bookshop. It might be sitting in a lecture theatre or kayaking around the bay.

 Magical Mousse – Adventures in Sensuality.  It’s time to bring pleasure and sensuality back into your life. Explore tastes and textures, indulge all of your senses, make time for massages, lovemaking, dancing and beautiful food. Buy yourself some gorgeous underwear, perfume or body lotion. Let yourself come alive again. *For couples, find ways to bring magic and pleasure back into your relationship. For happily singles, nurture and nourish your senses.  If you’re looking for love, embrace your sensual side. Think about what pleasure means to you, and get comfortable with it!  ♥ Best Crystal – Garnet  ♥ Power Word – Feel  ♥ Magical Healing Environment – anything that reconnects you to your senses.  Bubble baths, clean sheets, music, dancing, lying in dappled sunlight on soft green grass, ocean swims, perfume and cologne, warm embraces, patisseries and chocolate shops.

 Love Rises Up! – Stand Up For What You Believe In!  When we sit in our hearts we know what matters. It’s time to stand up for what matters. Maybe you need to start sharing your message or your work. Perhaps it’s time to become an activist or to join a local community group who are working to make one corner of the world a better place. If you chose this oracle the Universe wants you to know that what you care about matters, and that it’s time to give that thing your energy and care. *For couples,have the conversation about what matters to you. Support each other to pursue that thing. For happily singles, go make a stand or start towards that dream of yours. For those of you looking for love, you may well find it on the front line of a protest or at that charity dinner. Go follow your heart and the universe will take care of the rest!  Best Crystal – Amethyst   Power Word – Empowerment   Magical Healing Environment – Anywhere that fires your passion and lets you know that your presence matters. Political groups, activist groups, protest groups, organisations or movements for social good, environmental groups, writers groups, support groups, or you on your own, toiling away at your dream!

 Regal Enchantment! – Love of Knowledge! Knowledge and learning can be a beautiful thing. Getting to know yourself, getting to know each other, learning about something new, or taking existing knowledge deeper. Classes, courses, books, travel, study – or you out in the world teaching and sharing your own wisdom. This isn’t superficial learning. This is knowledge that transforms and enriches you. *Couples, go travelling together, or learn something as a team. Happily singles, indulge in whatever learning takes your fancy, or spend time in conversation with someone you’d like to know better. If you’re single, follow your interests and be brave enough to go deeper with them. Don’t be surprised if love aligns itself to this new you.  Best Crystal – Fluorite  Power Word – Wisdom  Magical Healing Environment – Time for yourself and your interests. Read books, join a course, attend a lecture, go travelling, make space to think deeply and to soak up knowledge.

 Artful Luxury! – Levelling Up In Love and Life!  Life is too short to settle for second best. In your job, in your relationships, in your living environment. It’s time to let your life level up. Don’t stay in situations or relationships where you are not happy and fulfilled. Don’t stay friends with people (or family!) who put you down or treat you badly. Value yourself!  *For couples, talk about your future and where your life is headed. Get help if your relationship is in trouble – whether that is counselling to stay together or to exit the relationship. Happily singles – be discerning about your life and reward yourself with things that matter deeply to you.  For those of you seeking love, set your sights high and know that this is the year you can make your romantic dreams come true.  Best Crystal – Tiger Eye  ♥ Power Word – My Highest Potential   Magical Healing Environment – Change.  Change can be a force for good. Plan out your future, a future that you’ll love. Spend time thinking about what positive changes you can make in your life and know that the Universe is supporting you to do so.

 Playful Reminders – Choose Creativity and Playfulness.  Love expresses itself often through creativity. What do you love to do? Or a better question, what did you ‘used to love to do’? Re-acquaint yourself with lost loves, be that art, craft, music, foods, hobbies, places or activities. Make room for a creative project in your life, or at least rub shoulders with creative spaces for a while. *For couples, find a common creative interest and go do that thing together. For happily singles make room in your life for something that gives you creative joy. For those of you looking for love, join a group or class that supports a creative interest. And watch out for pregnancies – the ultimate form of creativity! ♥ Best Crystal – Carnelian  ♥ Power Word – Explore   Magical Healing Environment – Anywhere that gets you in that creative mood. Hardware stores, book stores, craft supply shops, kitchen stores, the library, or wherever you can make, create and play.

 Companionable Cupcake! – True Heart Connection!  Who makes your heart sing? Open your heart and connect with them. Spend time with the important people in your life.  It might be your partner, a best friend, a family member or a pet. We sometimes take the love of others for granted.  What can you do to let another know that you value and appreciate them? Don’t forget quality time for yourself too! *If you’re in a relationship, honour and celebrate your togetherness. If you’re happily single, dwell on the things you like about yourself. If you’re looking for love, get clear about what your values are, and what you’re looking for in a partner. Know that you deserve someone who will love you well and just as you are.  Best Crystal – Rose Quartz   Power Word – Relating  Magical Healing Environment – Togetherness, wherever that works best for you.  Cuddles, time together over a meal or a coffee, phone calls, a movie, spending time doing something you used to do together but don’t get time for anymore. Time communing with a favourite place or hobby.

The Week Ahead – Oracle for Monday 13 February 2017

“Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.”
~ John F. Kennedy

Hello, Lovelies!

Here’s the oracle card I have chosen this Monday, and my take on the energetic outlook for the week ahead. I use any oracle or tarot 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. ‘Growth’ is from the Chakra Wisdom Oracle Deck by Tori Hartman.

If you read my forecast for February, you’ll remember that February is all about turning inwards, and tuning in to our own wants and needs, staying true to ourselves and our goals despite our fears or what other people may tell us.

So, what gifts does Growth bring for you this week?

Growth reminds us that it takes time to work out who we are. It’s okay to be unsure. It’s also okay if it feels quite strange to begin honouring our own wishes, desires, decisions and needs after a lifetime of putting them second or hiding them off to one side.

Be aware – a side-effect of you beginning to speak up, or behaving and choosing differently is that some people might suddenly think that you’ve gone mad. Or that you need advice or therapy!

When we shift and change it can be quite confronting for the people around us who are still in the same space, and who expect that we’ll keep on being the same too. Our change creates change in the status quo for them, and change can be uncomfortable.

Growth reminds us that change and uncertainty are okay. There’s nothing wrong with you. You don’t need to be fixed because you’re not broken. You’re just evolving.

new-1038840_640

A big old tree began as a seed, which became a tiny seedling. Over time it grew and grew until it took the form you see today. But just like you it’s a work in progress. How the tree looks today is not how it will look in a year’s time or ten years time. Life is about change.

Embrace that concept of change this week. Grow. Move towards the light.

Trust your intuition and instincts. Keep growing, even if you don’t know yet what you are evolving into. It will all be okay. Embrace not knowing. Just keep growing!

Supportive crystals this week? Ametrine, White Howlite, Fluorite, Orange Calcite, Labradorite, Moonstone, Carnelian. Go with the one that feels right to you, or choose a few.

Helpful essential oils?  Young Living’s Joy or Acceptance essential oil blends, or  a combination (or singly!) of any of Rose, Rosemary, Lemon, Vetiver and Lavender. The Joy blend is fabulous if you are feeling anxious or uncertain, or a bit sad or stuck. It’s reassuring and uplifting; wonderful for gently shifting depression and self-doubt.

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

The Week Ahead – Oracle for Monday 6 February 2017

perseverance chakra oracle

“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”
~ Thomas A. Edison

 

Hello, Lovelies!

Here’s the oracle card I have chosen this Monday, and my take on the energetic outlook for the week ahead. I use any oracle or tarot 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. ‘Perseverance’ is from the Chakra Wisdom Oracle Deck by Tori Hartman.

If you read my forecast for February, you’ll remember that February is all about turning inwards, and tuning in to our own wants and needs, staying true to ourselves and our goals despite our fears or what other people may tell us.

So, what gifts does Perseverance bring for you this week?

This week’ s card is a huge reminder to you to stick with your plan or actions. This is especially true if you’re just starting out. This is especially true if you’re battle-weary and the road has been long and hard.

Keep going. Don’t quit.

Call on the Universe. Call on God, your Guides, your Angels. Call on Nature. Call on the earth and the sky and the wise old trees. Call in your Ancestors.

Feel the Universe in every cell of your body. You are made of stardust and cosmic energy. You are brought to life by the sun itself. Your very existence is a miracle.

Keep going. Even if progress is hard, or it seems impossible just now.

Go quiet and go within. Fill yourself up with inspiration. Remind yourself of your why. Tune in to your inner value. Feel that stardust in your bones. Stay away from your critics and haters and doubters. Minimise time with the crazymakers in your life. Go it alone if you have to.

Perseverance is all about feeling and acknowledging your doubts and fears, but continuing anyway.

Perseverance is about knowing that when you rise up, others will too. You are never alone. Although it may feel like the world has gone mad, know that other people – just like you – are rising up beside you. There is a quiet revolution happening. Change is coming.

Don’t give up on your dreams, or your wishes for the world. Hold true to your vision for your best life.

Need extra support? Don’t be afraid to seek professional help. Find a good counsellor, a coach, a physician or lawyer.

This week, do the hard thing. Persevere with your plans. Act, even though you are frightened and anxious. As you decide, as you act, magic will begin to happen. You will begin to gain traction in your life again. Stuck will turn to flow.

Breakthrough could be just around the next corner.

Supportive crystals this week? Citrine, Smoky Quartz, Clear Quartz, Ametrine, Tiger Eye and Garnet.

Helpful essential oils?  Young Living’s Believe essential oil blend, or  a combination (or singly!) of any of Peppermint, Basil, Geranium and Lavender. I have a big soft spot for the Believe oil blend. It’s one of my go-to oils and it’s in my diffuser every time I work on my Planner, on my business, while I’m writing or journalling, or when I am considering making changes in my life. It smells beautiful too – uplifting and so pretty.

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

Your Magical Healing Environment is a place or activity you’ll find supportive and healing.

1. Rustic Star Gift  The Rustic Star Gift heralds a return to health and well-being for you in 2017. You’ll be able to tune in to the wisdom of your body, and will naturally begin to prefer the foods, exercise and other support that best suits your individual needs.

A year of abundance, love, prosperity and peace. Problems drop away. Struggle drops away. A foundational year of greatness, based upon self-awareness and humility as you shine your light and share your gifts. ♥ Best Crystal – CLEAR QUARTZ ♥ Power Word – ABUNDANCE  Magical Healing Environment – Time on your own. Time with Uplifting Others. Time on your own to meditate, to create, to connect, to plan, to journal, to dream, to learn, to rest, to integrate, to grow.

3. ♥ Retro Red and Gold Gift  This year gifts you a return to your greatest and most natural state of self-confidence and self-expression. Old hurts and woundings fade away, and self-doubt diminishes. You begin to remember and access the very best parts of yourself and to live in the world as the expression of these aspects of yourself, and with all of the wisdom gained from the long hard journey of life. A time of certainty, safety and security. A year where you reconnect with your authentic and best self and live as that energy in the world.

A year of emotional blessings and love. Best Crystal – ROSE QUARTZ   Power Word – CONNECTION  ♥ Magical Healing Environment – Time with loved ones. This could be a shared meal, time away together, phone calls or online connections. It’s time for yourself and time for your important relationships. Time to make your house a home. It’s time for your spiritual journey and for communion with Spirit, God or whatever else you know that guiding energy as.

5. Sweet Somethings Gift This is your year for bravely sharing your talents and gifts with the world. A deeply creative year of flow and inspiration, and of finding the drive within you to churn out the work from a place of passion rather than of duty or fear. A fantastic year for becoming more openly and authentically you, and for being accepted and loved for who you are. A wonderfully productive year, accompanied by great ideas and clear direction.  Best Crystal – RAINBOW FLUORITE   Power Word – AUTHENTIC  Magical Healing Environment – Time spent in the company of books and stories This could be e-books, audio books or paper books.

There is a return to light-heartedness and optimism after years of worry. Things will simply become easier in your life. Your attitude and vibration will lift.

Bust clouds and watch the stars come out at night.

7.  Simple Red Wrapping Gift  This year is transformational for you. A great year for all forms of learning and study, and for self-development. A year to deepen wisdom, and to expand your mind. A year to master skills. A year for philosophy and deep thinking. A year to truly understand who you are and why you are here. A year where you will find a deep sense of inner peace and compassion for self and others.  Best Crystal – AMETHYST  Power Word – WISDOM   Magical Healing Environment – Time for thinking, studying and learning.  Libraries, online courses, universities and schools, mastermind groups, workshops and conferences will work well for you this year. Setting up a study or writing space at home will be useful. Find time for long walks in nature, and for meditation too.

8. Golden Gift This is a year of spiritual growth and evolution for you. A year for stepping into a highly intuitive place of flow and connection. A healing space of oneness with all. It’s a year for profound insights, connection to Spirit and an awakening of your deepest psychic and intuitive abilities. This is a powerful time for healing for you right now. A time to get your body, mind and spirit back in balance. A time of drawing inwards for a while, in order to emerge renewed, healed, empowered and reinvigorated. It’s a year for guidance, healing and breakthroughs that will positively and permanently alter the course of your life.  Best Crystal – LABRADORITE   Power Word – EVOLUTION  Magical Healing Environment – Quiet time to connect you to Self and God (or whatever you call source energy) Journalling, meditation, working with oracle and tarot cards, prayer and self-reflection. Time in sacred places. Time in the majesty of nature. Time with Elders and Spiritual Teachers and Leaders. Time for study. Time to connect with your Guides, Angels, Ancestors and God.

The Week Ahead – Oracle Reading for Monday 5 December

possibilities osho zen tarot

“There’s always a moment that separates the past from the future, and that moment is now.”
~ Aniekee Tochukwu Ezekiel

 

Hello, Lovelies!

Here’s the oracle card I have chosen this Monday, and my take on the energetic outlook for the week ahead.

‘Possibilities’ is from the Osho Zen Tarot deck and it signals opportunities for us to gain much-needed clarity and direction about our lives, and understanding of situations both current and past.

As the first full week of December stretches out before us, we are positioned to finally be able to make sense of all that has been going on in our life. This year. Last year.The years before that…

It is a fantastic week for being able to rise above the day-to-day workings of our lives and to look down upon it all in a way that gains us perspective, understanding and insights that have been unavailable to us until now.

This week find some time for reflection, planning, journaling and thinking deeply about your life. Ask your Guides and your Higher Self to show you what you most need to know right now, especially in relation to long-standing issues where you need resolution or a new direction.

It’s a week where patterns, habits and motivations will become clear – and then you can choose to keep, discard or change them!

Be aware of your self-talk this week. Are you keeping yourself trapped by endlessly repeating the same old story, even if it is not your truth anymore, or is not the truth of the direction in which you’d like to head?

Choose some new words and a new story. Reframe your life to create a new future for yourself, and a solid foundation for 2017.

Look for the existing good in your life, and acknowledge that good. Cultivate gratitude and appreciation in all you do.

Thank people who support and serve you.

And if you find yourself being treated badly, taken for granted, or taken advantage of? Think deeply on that this week too, and about whether you are prepared to continue to accept this energy, situation or relationship in your life in the year ahead.

Remember: you are worthy of love and respect.

The other thing this week lends itself to is the creation of long-range plans.

Choose a goal to work towards, especially one that is ambitious and that stretches and grows you. Have something far out in front of you that shines and beckons and encourages, and that will inspire you to keep going when things get tough.

Choose a better life for yourself.

Supportive crystals this week? Clear quartz, amethyst, fluorite and labradorite.  Helpful essential oils? Young Living’s Clarity essential oil blend, or  a combination (or singly!) of any of jasmine, orange, lavender and frankincense.

Wishing you a breakthrough week of wisdoms and insights. Holding you, as always, in my thoughts, prayers and meditations. Dream big, and value yourself! All my love,

The Week Ahead – Oracle Reading for Monday 28 November

totality-osho-zen-tarot

“May what I do flow from me like a river, no forcing and no holding back, the way it is with children.”
~ Rainer Maria Rilke

 

Hello, Friends!

Welcome to the final days of these fabulous November energies.

Here’s the oracle card I have chosen, and my take on the energetic outlook for the week ahead.

‘Totality’ is from the Osho Zen Tarot deck, and it heralds  a week of flow, good timing and helpful people.

It’s a week where you need to act on intuition. Trust your reflexes. Go with your gut. Know that the first thought will be the right thought.

It’s a week that favours completion of tasks. You’ll find that it’s the kind of week where you can get the impossible done. All it requires of you is focus and commitment. This is not a week to be wishy-washy.

This is a week where the pieces will start to come together for you.

It’s a week where you’ll get more done if you work with a team.

It’s a week where your unwavering commitment to a goal or a dream will see you making progress or experiencing breakthroughs beyond what you conceived as possible.

Within this week’s pattern of advancement and completion we will leave some things behind. Or they will bid us adieu.

That’s okay.

Everything has its season.

Be gracious about these endings. Don’t try to hold on to things that have finished their cycle. Many relationships, situations and patterns of behaviour will come to an end in the lead-up to 2017. It’s their time.

Stay in flow. Be open to what comes next. Be open to the possibilities that this positive change will bring for you.

This week the energies of change will make it hard for you to delude yourself about your true feelings. Situations and solutions will become clear. You’ll feel compelled to do something.

Trust.

Act.

Stay in flow.

It’s a big week for commitment. Saying ‘Yes’. Saying ‘I love you’. Saying ‘Let’s do this!’.

Be brave and jump in!

 

 

 

You’ll feel a return to energy this week. You’ll bounce back stronger. You’ll be able to look the world in the eye and say ‘I’m going places. Come with me or get out of my way.’

Flow with it – whatever it is. Give yourself to the task, the idea, the project, the relationship.

Commit, commit, commit.

You’ll amaze yourself with what changes and gets done!

 

Supportive crystals this week? Fluorite, Amazonite, Citrine and Tiger Eye.  Helpful essential oils? Young Living’s Clarity essential oil blend, or  a combination (or singly!) of any of cedarwood, lemon, ylang ylang and bergamot.

Wishing you a wonderful week and holding you, as always, in my thoughts, prayers and meditations. I can’t wait to see where this week takes you.
