A Week for Empowered Action – Monday Oracle 18 March 2019

“For after all, the best thing one can do when it is raining is let it rain.”
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Hello, Lovelies!

March is a month of creativity and inspiration that will propel us forward in new directions and where we can make major progress towards existing goals. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card Acceptance brings us.

There are two big themes to the energies of this week: Self-Love and Ultimate Responsibility. Acceptance shows us the wisdom of truly honouring the truth of our current circumstances. We might not like where we are at in our lives, or how we are behaving, we might not be happy with our choices, we may feel far from our goals and dreams – but Acceptance teaches us that the starting point for all self-love and all self-acceptance is to be present with the truth of where we are at right now in this moment.

Sitting in that place of truth (even if we don’t like what we see!) is empowering. It gives us a starting point and a place from which we can measure any future progress. Acceptance is the powerful energy of owning where we are at, within the framework of all of the other circumstances and relationships that impact our life.

This week take a little time to do an audit of your life. Where are you are with your health, your relationships, your money, your career, your goals or anything else important to you? Don’t judge or blame yourself for being where you are – that’s never helpful. Allow yourself to connect to the truth of your situation without emotion. It is what it is. Self-love can only come when we begin at this place of honesty with ourselves, and are able to love and accept ourselves DESPITE things within our current reality we would rather were different.

Acceptance also empowers us to take Ultimate Responsibility for our life this week. Ultimate Responsibility means that we stop blaming others, we stop finding excuses, we stop justifying or validating. We stop running ourselves down and trash-talking ourselves. Instead, we choose to accept responsibility for every single thing in our lives, no matter how we got to that place.

When we take Ultimate Responsibility we stop waiting for other people to change or to fix things for us and we empower ourselves to either 1) stop complaining and accept things as they are, or 2) make the decision to change what we don’t like and then take action until we get an outcome that is better than our current reality.

In the spirit of the Acceptance card and the gifts she brings what one area of your life can you take Ultimate Responsibility for this week, empowering yourself to make changes to give you better outcomes?

Supportive crystals this week?

Black and White Cats Eye enhances intuition and helps you to overcome fear of change. It opens you up to your inner knowing and helps you to see your best way forward. Fire Agate gifts you courage to follow your spiritual path, and inspires you to grow beyond your current limits. It’s a stone to kindle your creative flame. Ruby Zoisite is a stone of transformation, helping you to be empowered in your life. It elevates your confidence and authority, and enhances creativity, imagination and innovation. Carnelian (pictured) dispels doubt and negativity, strengthening self-esteem, determination, confidence and creativity.

Helpful essential oils?

Combine Frankincense, Lemon and Peppermint Essential Oils for an energising and focusing diffuser blend this week. A ratio of 2 drops of Frankincense, and 3 drops each of Lemon and Peppermint is delicious!

Frankincense helps you to be grounded and connected at the same time, and reduces stress and inflammation within the body. Lemon is uplifting and helps bring focus and clarity, and Peppermint refreshes the mind and spirit.

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

Guided Meditation Bundle

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

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

Craft A Visionary Talisman

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

Wishing you a transformative and uplifting week of action. Aim high, give it your best shot, and no matter what you do, be true to YOU!

Lots of love, Nicole ❤ xx

PS: Monday’s oracle card, Acceptance, is from the Peace Oracle. I use any cards shown as a prompt for channelled messages and my own own intuitive wisdom, so my take is sometimes quite different to the meaning found in a book. 

Day 11 – Oracle Card Challenge

“Hide not your talents, they for use were made,
What’s a sundial in the shade?”
~ Benjamin Franklin

 

Strengths and Gifts to Call On

Often the things that we are good at, and the talents and gifts for which other people value us and our contribution, are things that are not clear to ourselves!

Today’s challenge will help you to redefine and become clear about what these strengths and gifts are.  Once we know this, we can deliberately and consciously choose to use them in our lives. Result? We always move into greater flow and personal satisfaction.

 

Here’s what you need to do.

Take your crystal, and complete this short guided meditation:

Hold your stone in your cupped hands, close your eyes, and slow your breathing. Bring white light into your body until you feel peaceful and calm. Then bring white light into the crystal too. Allow yourself to connect to the stone. You may feel it tingle, or visualise a colour in your mind’s eye. When you are ready, open your eyes. Keep your stone near you, and hold it when you write.

 

 

Now shuffle your cards, while silently asking the question to yourself ‘What are my strengths and gifts that will best support me and my dreams right now?’

When you have shuffled the cards and they feel ‘done’, select three cards using the method that feels right for you.

Place the cards face up in front of you.

Clear your mind by closing your eyes and taking one deep breath in and then out. Open your eyes again. Take a minute and look at the first picture.

What stands out for you today? Is it an image or a colour? Is it a number or a word? What are your first impressions? What thoughts come into your mind? Do this for each card and write your responses down in your journal.

 

Now let’s go a little deeper. What feelings or words do each card evoke in your mind when you think about the card and its images in relation to the question ‘What are my strengths and gifts that will best support me and my dreams right now?’ Write some stream-of-consciousness thoughts down for each card. Don’t censor or judge them. Trust the process. Draw a second card for clarification if you need to.

Finally, read back over what you have written.

It is useful to revisit and read over this information often. We are almost always painfully aware of our faults, but we need many reminders about our gifts!

Hugs and love, Nicole <3 xx
