Monday Oracle – 8 January 2018

 “If the only prayer you said was thank you, that would be enough. –  Meister Eckhart

 

Hello, Lovelies!

The cards I am using for guidance for 2018 are the enchanting Inner Child Cards – A Fairy-Tale Tarot by Ishna Lerner, Mark Lerner and Christopher Guilfoil. I’ve used and loved these cards for over 25 years and they are just perfect for our year ahead. They may seem childlike and whimsical in their design but there is great depth and wisdom within them.

January is a month for easing ourselves into the energies of 2018, for resting and recharging, for planning and dreaming and for tuning in to what can support us in the year ahead.

Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of awareness which the oracle card Seven of  Crystals brings us.

This is a week for counting our blessings, for sitting in gratitude for what is already good in our lives, and for thinking about the experiences, energies, relationships and opportunities we wish to draw to ourselves in 2018.

No matter what your spiritual or religious inclinations, find some sacred time for yourself this week. That might be attending a church, lighting incense and offering prayers in a temple, meditation time, a walk in nature or any place that helps you to find that stillness within and without.

If you want, it’s also a great week for creating a simple altar or sacred space at home. Think of a small space on a tabletop or window ledge where you can place a few things that have deep meaning for you, and where you might also keep a crystal, candle or some fresh flowers. What you choose and create is up to you – it’s a little physical reminder of your own sacred soul path and inner journey, and your own personal spiritual beliefs.

It’s a week for stepping away from the news, gossip and any outside negative energies. Don’t worry. They will still all be there when we come back into the world, but for now, Seven of Crystals reminds us to keep our hearts and thoughts full of kindness, love, gratitude and positive thoughts for ourselves and others.

Supportive crystals this week?

Selenite boosts intuition and all forms of spiritual connection. It will help you to connect into your guides, angels and psychic ability. Fantastic for gently guiding you inwards.

Red Jasper is a stone for mental, physical and emotional rejuvenation. Deeply grounding, it helps you connect to your heart and your truth. Clear Quartz lifts your vibration and opens you to flow. It is a highly spiritual stone, encouraging self-reflection and helpful for hearing messages and receiving signs or direction that can assist you on your journey. A clear quartz cluster or double terminated stone will be extra supportive for you this week! Larimar is also a good choice. This pretty blue stone will help you to speak your needs, and acknowledge where you are stuck, out of flow or in need of healing and change. A super stone for calling in healing on all levels.

Helpful essential oils?

I’m loving Young Living’s Envision this week. It’s an oil blend I often use in my workshops and retreats to help my students connect to inner wisdom and intuition. It helps us to see a greater possibility for ourselves. Use Envision for spiritual connection, inspiration and breakthroughs. Dab a drop on your Crown Chakra, back of neck, over your heart, wrists and the soles of your feet, inhale directly or add to your diffuser. 

Want to make your own blend? Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own for you this week, but they’ll also make a delicious combination for diffusing. Vetiver will calm and ground us, promoting emotional balance, Lavender keeps us in flow and relaxed, Ylang Ylang opens our hearts and is supportive when we feel anxious or overwhelmed, and Bergamot brings joy, gratitude and optimism.  To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser. 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,

Nicole ❤ xx

PS: Monday’s oracle card, ‘Seven of Crystals’, is from the Inner Child Cards – A Fairy-Tale Tarot. I use any cards shown as a prompt for channeled messages and my own own intuitive wisdom, so my take is sometimes quite different to the meaning found in a book. 

The Energies of January – 2018

“And now we welcome the new year, full of things that have never been” 
Rainer Maria Rilke

 

Hello, Lovelies :)

It’s January! It’s a time for easing ourselves into the energies of 2018, for resting and recharging, for planning and dreaming and for tuning in to what can support us in the year ahead.

Cards for the Month:

I’ve chosen two cards for January for you: one from Colette Baron-Reid’s The Enchanted Map and one from Steven Farmer’s Earth Magic 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:

“I believe in intuitions and inspirations…I sometimes FEEL that I am right. I do not KNOW that I am.” 
Albert Einstein

January brings the gift of intuition and the call to spend time on soul work – that energy of creating clarity about where we are in our lives right now, and then thinking about where we want to be, and how far we have already come.

It’s a month to ask yourself the big questions:

Am I happy?

What’s working?

What’s missing? 

Where to from here?

You don’t need to have the solutions yet, but the whole year will flow better if you can tune in and get clear about the position from which you are starting 2018. Don’t worry – this month supports strong psychic and spiritual connection, insights and new perspectives. What’s hidden will come to light so that you can finally stand in your current truth, whatever that might be. It’s also a month where we begin to realise just how strong and resilient we are, and how much we have already dealt with or overcome. 

On a physical level January’s energies invite new healthy routines, positive changes in diet, detoxifying your body, embracing stretching and exercise, and finding new healing modalities and practitioners to support you better throughout 2018.

There is a sense of loving your body and accepting your current situation with grace, even as you may seek  to improve it

The second card I’ve chosen is MOUNTAIN. It’s a card whose primary message is to remind us of our inner strength and resilience, and of the importance of caring for and grounding ourselves.

“You are one thing only. You are a Divine Being. An all-powerful Creator. You are a Deity in jeans and a t-shirt, and within you dwells the infinite wisdom of the ages and the sacred creative force of All that is, will be and ever was.” 
Anthon St. Maarten

Mountain encourages us to take the long view of life, to plan and then to take small steps towards our goals. Our crazy busy lives need to slow down. We’ll do best by simplifying everything, and by getting some quiet time to think, dream and integrate change.

All actions and decisions that give you a sense of strengthening your commitment to a goal, that strengthen your physical, emotional or financial position – all of these are well supported in January.

Don’t rush this month. Take your time. Make everything a devotional act. Slow it down and your whole life becomes a moving meditation!

Best crystals this month?

Selenite and Red Jasper

Selenite boosts intuition and all forms of spiritual connection. It will help you to connect into your guides, angels and psychic ability.

Red Jasper is a stone for mental, physical and emotional rejuvenation. Deeply grounding, it helps you connect to your heart and your truth. 

Essential oils to support your journey?

I’m loving Young Living’s Clarity and Believe blends for January. 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 Believe when you are doubting yourself and want to find your confidence and self-belief. It’s great to inhale directly, diffuse or add a drop to Heart Chakra and inner wrists. A few drops added to your bath make for magical self-care.

Want to make your own blend? Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own for you this month, but they also make a delicious combination for diffusing. Frankincense elevates our mood and promotes spiritual connection and intuition, Lavender keeps us in flow and relaxed,  Ylang Ylang opens our hearts and is supportive when we feel anxious or overwhelmed, and Bergamot for joy, gratitude and optimism. To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser. You can find the oils here.

Want to make the most of your year in 2018?

January is a great month to work on your plans and dreams. If you want a powerful tool to tap you in to your intuition and inner guidance, my Year of ME Planner can help you (ME stands for Manifesting Energies!). We also have a wonderful community and a year filled with webinars, resources and learning. If you’d like to join us or buy the Planner all the details are in our Store – just follow the link at the top of the page or click here.

I’ve also uploaded some recordings from our recent channelling evening, where my Guides talk about the energies of 2018 and how to navigate them in order to make your life more meaningful and satisfying. There are four files and ninety minutes of listening time all up. Want to access these resources? More details here

Wishing you a transformative and uplifting month.

Lots of love, Nicole xoxo

The Possibilities Before Us – Monday Oracle 24 April 2017

“Could we change our attitude, we should not only see life differently, but life itself would come to be different. Life would undergo a change of appearance because we ourselves had undergone a change of attitude.”
~ Katherine Mansfield

 

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. ‘Enlightenment’ is from the Chakra Wisdom Oracle Deck by Tori Hartman.

If you read my forecast for April, you’ll remember that April has strong energy for believing in ourselves and reclaiming our direction.

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

This week brings hope, even for those of us who have found ourselves in the darkest of spaces. It also brings us the capacity to envision our best self, or the ultimate outcome for a project or business, and the clarity to begin to work towards that.

It’s a week of sifting and sorting. Working out where to spend our time, working out what to keep and what to let go.

So much will begin to fall away this week. As we begin to know and trust ourselves our outlook will change. We’ll begin to feel more free, more peaceful, more optimistic – no matter what our current circumstances might be.

This week the energy supports you to hold space for others in a way that allows them to finally glimpse for themselves the potential you see is possible for them. It’s a week where we can begin to believe in ourselves and in a brighter future.

For some of us this week will also bring visions – a deeper connection to God, our Guides, our Higher Selves. It’s a week well suited to all things spiritual and metaphysical. A great week for devotion, meditation and for preparing to delve deeper. A week where teachers will appear, because we are finally ready. Or maybe YOU are the teacher and you are finally ready… 🙂

In summary this is a week of revelation, of hope, of answers. Of new direction and of possibility – even though the path or the destination may not be clear as yet.

Supportive crystals this week?

Snowflake Obsidian will help to remove old negative self-talk and replace it with optimism. Selenite will help you to connect into your guides, angels and psychic ability. Amethyst will truly boost your intuitive abilities and help you on your spiritual path.  Pyrite for physical healing and Jade/Nephrite for emotional healing.

Helpful essential oils? 

Young Living’s Awaken essential oil blend, or a combination (or singly!) of any of Geranium, Orange, Sandalwood and Lavender. Awaken essential oil blend smells sweet and woody and can be worn as a perfume (Place on wrists, over heart and on back of neck) or used in a diffuser. A few drops in the bath are heavenly too. It’s a great oil to get you out of your head and into your heartspace. It promotes spiritual connection and intuition and is deeply calming. I love this oil, and it’s my oil of choice in my diffuser again this week. You can find all the oils here.

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

Psychic Connection and Soul Mates – Monday Oracle 3 April 2017

“It is an absolute human certainty that no one can know his own beauty or perceive a sense of his own worth until it has been reflected back to him in the mirror of another loving, caring human being.”
~ John Joseph Powell

 

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. ‘Soulmate’ is from the Chakra Wisdom Oracle Deck by Tori Hartman.

If you read my forecast for April, you’ll remember that April is all about the mind, our thoughts and self-talk. It’s a month for untangling old not-good-enough stories as we identify what’s working, what’s broken and where to from here.

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

It’s a card about connection, wisdom and tuning in.

This card gently reminds us that our head holds our mind as well as our Third Eye and Crown Chakras. Our mind is a lot like a computer. We exist as consciousness outside of our mind. Our mind does not define who we are – our mind is merely a tool and a governing agent for our body and systems.

We are not just our minds. We are also our emotions. We are also our experiences. We are also our intuition. We are souls having human experiences. Our Crown and Third Eye Chakras are gateways for Universal Flow. We are so much more than just our minds. And EVERYONE is made this way.

This is a big week for intuition and spiritual awareness. It’s a week where inspiration will come, where dreams will hold answers, where spiritual and psychic connection will happen easily and well.

Most importantly it’s a week where your soul and your own inner wisdom will help you to use your mind positively and productively. This week you can reach deep levels of awareness and understanding.

And those of you who were hoping that this was a post about FINALLY finding your true love?

Well, you can use your mind and your intuition to get clear about what you want in a relationship and then draw that to you. Don’t know how? I’ve created a range of activities and a guided meditation that you can use to guide you here.

It’s also a great week for falling in love! <3

Supportive crystals this week?

Snowflake Obsidian will help to remove old negative self-talk and replace it with optimism. Selenite will help you to connect into your guides, angels and psychic ability. Amethyst will truly boost your intuitive abilities and help you on your spiritual path.  Rose Quartz if you’re ready to attract love.

Helpful essential oils? 

Young Living’s Envision essential oil blend, or a combination (or singly!) of any of Geranium, Spruce, Ylang Ylang and Frankincense. Envision oil is one of the oils I use with my students when I teach my intuition and channelling classes. It calms your mind and opens your awareness – and it smells so good! It’s a combination of spruce, orange, sage, geranium, lavender and rose. Just brilliant for connecting heart and mind, and for gently opening you to your psychic capabilities It’s my oil of choice in my diffuser this week. You can find all the oils here.

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 April – 2017

“When you’re different, sometimes you don’t see the millions of people who accept you for what you are. All you notice is the person who doesn’t.”
~ Jodi Picoult

Hello, Lovelies :)

April has landed, and with it comes strong energy for believing in ourselves and reclaiming our direction.

This is your life. It’s yours to design and to live as you please, whether you realise it or not. This month you’re supported to untangle old thoughts of not-good-enough, and to identify what’s working, what’s broken and where to from here.

 

Cards for the Month:

I’ve chosen two cards for April 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:

“Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.”
― Søren Kierkegaard

April brings our focus firmly to our thoughts and self-talk. It encourages us to see ourselves more kindly, and to heal self-doubt and low self-worth issues that have held us back from being happy, choosing healthy relationships or putting our talents and gifts out into the world.

If you’re an overthinker, April gifts you supportive energies for moving to a place of greater trust in the Universe and in your own problem-solving abilities and resilience.

April highlights areas in our lives where we are out of step, where the pressure is too much, or our expectations are unrealistic, and it alerts us to the danger signs of burnout. It helps us become aware of where we are wasting time on people, situations and projects that do not support us, and shines a light on the things that truly matter to us on a heart level, on a soul level. April helps us to reclaim our personal and intuitive direction, and to live in more sustainable ways.

 

The second card I’ve chosen is Co-Create. What a supportive and uplifting message! You’re reminded that you are never alone, and that you are a creative being, simply by virtue of being human.

“The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.”
~ Sylvia Plath

So many of your ideas are sound. But you don’t trust them. Or you don’t invest any energy in them. Or you talk them to death without ever having taken a single step to turn them from thoughts into actions.

Co-Create reminds you that when you take a step towards your dreams the Universe steps with you. You are always supported. Helpful people turn up. You find just the right teacher or resource. The perfect partner sits next to you on the bus. Things somehow fall into place.

But that Universal Support is accessed through the act of self-trust and self-belief. Which doesn’t mean you need to be some kind of self-assured egomaniac. You can still have doubt. You can still be scared. But in that place of doubt and scariness keep putting one foot in front of the other. Keep moving. Keep doing. Keep dreaming. Keep acting on your dreams.

You’ll find your self-belief and resilience through action. Never through thinking.

Pray. Call on your Guides, Angels and Ancestors. Meditate. Visualise. Write it all down. But most importantly, get active in creating this month. Who knows what magic can come of it?

Best crystals for April?

Essential oils to support your journey?

Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own for you this month, but they also make a delicious combination for diffusing. The essential oils you will find helpful in April are Lemon, Lavender, Jasmine, and Bergamot. Lemon helps us to think clearly and to problem-solve, Lavender keeps us in flow and relaxed, Jasmine keeps us focused and tuned in to our creativity and Bergamot gifts us optimism and a sense of gratitude for our lives and the world around us. To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser. You can find the oils here.

Let April be a month where you value yourself at least as much as you value others. Make time to sit with your thoughts this month, and trust that insight, innovation and clarity will come.

Holding you in my thoughts, prayers and meditations.

Lots of love, Nicole❤ xoxo
