“You are the storyteller of your own life, and you can create your own legend, or not.”
~ Isabel Allende
August is here, bringing a delicious basket of delights. It’s a month for creativity in all forms and for getting back into the flow of life again. You’ll find a lift in your mood and a clear road ahead so get ready to make the most of the opportunities all around you. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card Nine of Crystals brings us.
Nine of Crystals is about being the storyteller of your own life. It is up to you to be the author – to write your life the way you want to live it. It’s about stepping into consciousness and understanding your role as a co-creator in your life. It’s a time of heightened creativity and of positive opportunities, gifts and freeing up of flow and abundance.
Don’t panic if the Universe has alreday got the wheel in motion by ending something in your life or turning everything on its head – your outcomes will end up being positive as you are repositioned to somewhere that suits you better and allows greater flow and growth.
This week you’ll find the strength to step away from people and situations that don’t work for you, or to plan your escape at a time that suits your needs. It’s a week well suited to applying for new positions, for asking someone new out on a date and for anything where you are trying new things or stepping outside your comfort zone.
Nine of Crystals encourages you to inspire, encourage and uplift others this week by sharing information and kind words and showing your support. Expect generosity, kindness and goodwill to flow back to you too.
Creative energies are at an all-time high during August so carve out some time to work on projects that are meaningful to you, or sign up for some classes to hone your talents or learn new skills. It’s also a week to find some quiet time and moments that fill body and soul with love and nurture.
Supportive crystals this week?
Ruby Zoisite is a stone of transformation, helping you to be empowered in your life. It elevates your confidence and authority, and improves fertility, imagination and innovation. Carnelian dispels doubt and negativity, strengthening self-esteem, confidence and creativity. Sunstone helps you to sit in a place of abundance thinking so that you see the blessings and possibilities in life and to believe in your right to a better future. Clear Quartz (pictured) will help you to grow into your possibilities, to create a clear vision for your life, and to connect deeply to your intuitive wisdom and soul guidance.
Helpful essential oils?
I’m loving Geranium 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 creative and intuitive essence. It will uplift you and stimulate creativity, self-confidence and emotional flow – all energies that are great for shifting you into a more positive space. 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)
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.
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, ‘Nine of Crystals’, 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.
