The True Cost of Dreams – Monday Oracle 13 March 2017

“The cost of a thing is the amount of what I will call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.”
~ Henry David Thoreau

Hello, Lovelies.

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

If you read my forecast for March, you’ll remember that March is all about creating systems and structures which make your everyday life more supported and sustainable.

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

Wisdom reminds us that when we follow the calling of our heart magic happens. This week support comes from unexpected quarters, inspiration flows, and from the smallest of beginnings we can begin to create results beyond our wildest imaginings. It’s a strong week for intuitive wisdom and spiritual guidance. It’s the kind of week where miracles can happen.

It’s the kind of week where we get the job, get the lucky break, win the prize, meet the love of our life.

It’s a fabulous week for finding a coach, mentor or teacher. For joining a class or a mastermind. For signing up to learn more. Or for offering your own expertise in the world.

Wisdom is all about healthy boundaries, asking for help and practicing extreme self-care.

It’s about not apologising for your choices, or feeling that you need to explain or defend yourself.

Wisdom is also a reminder to build our lives and businesses in sustainable ways.

There’s no point reaching our goals or realising our dreams if we have destroyed our relationships, our health, our lives or our planet in the process.

Wisdom encourages us to recognise the price we pay when we don’t follow our heart. When we ignore our dreams life becomes colourless, our very life-force drains away, we waste our one precious life and become filled with regret.

The way forward this week is to take steps towards what makes our heart glad. Those steps might be small, but they are vital to our long-term happiness and wellbeing.

Our heart knows what it wants! True wisdom is paying attention to that, and creating action to make our dreams a reality.

Supportive crystals this week?

Red Jasper helps us to make decisions and stick to them this week. Tiger Eye is fabulous for clarity and creativity. Tourmaline in Quartz will build courage and help you to stand by your choices and decisions. Sodalite will help you to understand and speak your truth.

Helpful essential oils?

Young Living’s Believe or Common Sense essential oil blends are good choices this week. Believe works to boost our self-confidence and self-belief.  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. If you want to make your own combination or use a single oil, choose from grapefruit, basil, geranium and frankincense. Use one to two drops of each in your diffuser – they blend beautifully together.

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 Energies of March – 2016

“Everything must be made as simple as possible. But not simpler.”
~ Albert Einstein

 

Hello, Lovelies 🙂

Welcome to March! Let me share some observations about the energy of the month ahead, as well as a few suggestions for embracing all that March has to offer.

Cards for the Month:

I’ve chosen two cards for March for you: one from the Osho Zen Tarot Deck, and one from Colette Baron-Reid’s Wisdom of the Oracle. Please note I don’t use these cards in the conventional way, but rather as a stimulus for channelled information.

Here is what I have received from each card:

“Any system was a straightjacket if you insisted on adhering to it so totally and humorlessly.”
~ Erica Jong, Fear of Flying

 

March is a month about practicalities. Don’t fear the thought of organisation. Embrace it!

The energy of March is all about systems, structure, organisation and control. Why? March is where things get serious in regards to growth and sustainability.

What are the areas of your life that give you grief or hold you back? How can you bring order and flow to them again?

Or do you need to step away and start over?

We are encouraged to look at the areas where we are out of control in our lives. Not just to notice the mess and the out-of-control chaos, but to actually take steps to get things back into flow. Strip it back. Make it easier.

Sort out any compliance issues or legal matters. Become clear about what your own personal and professional values are, and then live by them.

March energy celebrates tidying up, clearing clutter, streamlining, and making things simple. In March we need to get things sorted out and keep it real. We are encouraged to put energy into creating systems and support for ourselves. What is working well? Do more of that! Allow for flexibility too. Don’t become a slave to your systems and plans.

Do more of what you enjoy, do more of what makes money, do more of what sustains health and relationships. But put it into a simple system or routine. There is no point in reinventing the wheel every month.

And delegate or find help. It’s crazy to be doing everything ourselves.

“When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.”
~ Rumi

 

The second card I’ve chosen reminds you that the reason you are creating systems and structure and plans is not to bind you to misery, but to free you up so that there is time for pleasure and leisure. So that there is time for what matters. So that you are no longer a prisoner to an endless stream of madness.

Happy Happy speaks of the need for emotional fulfillment.

We need to plan fun, and to make space for rest and play and adventure.

Planning isn’t always about work. Plans and systems need to be able to support our wider life, and to create opportunities for us to do what reflects our values and the things that give our life meaning.

Even when we work from our heart, structure and systems play a part in helping us to have success.

The key to your success is finding balance and giving priority to the actions and decisions that will make the biggest difference in your daily life.

Celebrate your milestones, no matter how small. Allow yourself to believe that change is not only possible, but is happening – right before your eyes!

Sending all my love to you, Nicole ♥ xx
