“Never let hard lessons harden your heart; the hard lessons of life are meant to make you better, not bitter.”
~ Roy T. Bennett
September is a month for adventuring and travel. It’s a month for exploring new lands, or undiscovered parts of ourselves. Routine and the usual choices will hold no interest for us. We will long for life to surprise us, and we’ll feel compelled to try new things. We will be less held back with worry about what other people think of us. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card Ten of Swords brings us.
Ten of Swords is a supremely reassuring card. We don’t need to do everything on our own. Instead we are encouraged to reach out for help, to consult a mentor or expert, to gather together to overcome an obstacle, bring about change or defeat a foe. Check your boundaries too. Are you saying yes when you wanted to say no? Are you protecting what matters, getting enough sleep and looking after yourself and your own needs? Running on empty? Don’t be afraid to step back or step away in order to refill your tank.
This week also holds a powerful energy for overcoming our fears. What have you been procrastinating about, or fearful of acting upon? Let this week be the week where you turn things around by thinking and acting in new ways. A great week for decisions and new directions.
Supportive crystals this week?
Pyrite promotes confidence, good decision-making, courage and the ability to embrace your potential. Tree Agate heightens your intuition, connecting you to synchronicity, soul wisdom, guides and universal energy. It promotes inner peace and emotional healing. Snowflake Obsidian will help to remove old negative self-talk and replace it with optimism. Rainbow Moonstone (pictured) tunes you in to your dreams and subconscious mind, and to metaphysical messages.
Helpful essential oils?
I’m loving Young Living’s Clarity and Joy blends this week. Use Clarity for focus, inspiration and breakthroughs. Dab a drop on your Crown Chakra and the soles of your feet, inhale directly or add to your diffuser. Use Joy to help you move back to a place of contentment, confidence and happiness. It’s great to inhale directly, diffuse or add a drop to Heart Chakra, throat and inner wrists like perfume. A few drops added to your bath make for magical self-care.
If you want to use a single oil, choose any of these for their uplifting and confidence inducing qualities – Bergamot, Grapefruit, Ylang Ylang, Orange or Geranium.
You can find the oils here.
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,

PS: Monday’s oracle card, ‘Ten of Swords’, is from the Inner Child Cards – A Fairy-Tale Tarot. 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.
