A Week For Truth and Discernment – Monday Oracle 29 April 2019

“We have to dare to be ourselves, however frightening or strange that self may prove to be.” ~ May Sarton

Hello, Lovelies!

April calls you to live from your heartspace. This month lifts you above your obstacles, or helps you to blaze a trail through them. Expect magical insights and guidance to help light the path ahead. It’s time to believe in yourself and your dreams even if no-one else yet believes. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card Truth brings us.

Truth speaks of the importance of being able to take off your mask and let people see you the way that you really are. But it’s also about being protective and protecting your inner truth or those tender parts of yourself when you need to. This is an act of self-love and an honouring of your self-worth.

So this is really a message of discernment – knowing when to show yourself and when it’s actually okay to mask or hide or protect aspects of yourself from judgment or from ridicule. This week you’re urged to know yourself and to put thought into knowing when to share.

Truth is also about evaluating your relationships and knowing who you can trust and who you can be yourself with. There will always be people who are judgmental and unsupportive – keep your precious and tender energies and ideas away from people who would ridicule, reject or smash them down. Instead, look for people who can champion the authentic you and the gifts you seek to share with the world.

Truth asks you to look at where you are not being honest with yourself. Look to where you are numbing yourself with food, alcohol, work, sex or drugs and ask ‘Why am I doing this? What am I really feeling?’

Be brave enough to examine your life honestly this week to make sure that your inner truth is reflected and supported in your outer journey.

Most of all, remember that as much as self-reflection and self-awareness are important skills in your life, so is the ability to laugh at yourself and not take everything so seriously. Look to places where your life or your attitude would benefit from ‘lightening up’, and do your best not to give yourself or anyone else a hard time.

It is a stone of abundance, clearing blocks of low self-worth and creating flow.

Find Your Voice! Monday Oracle 15 April 2019

“The things I carry are my thoughts. That’s it. They are the only weight. My thoughts determine whether I am free and light or burdened.”   ~ Kamal Ravikant

Hello, Lovelies!

April calls you to live from your heartspace. This month lifts you above your obstacles or helps you to blaze a trail through them. Expect magical insights and guidance to help light the path ahead. It’s time to believe in yourself and your dreams even if no-one else yet believes. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card Sound brings us.

This week Sound calls us to stand strong in honouring our own truth and honouring our own voice. There are so many ways that we quieten that voice and so many ways we diminish our truth. Not all of that is deliberate. As a society, we are taught to be polite, to get along, to put the needs and happiness of others before our own. (You can read more about this here). But our voice matters too. Speaking and living from our heart space and living our truth helps bring us into alignment with situations, opportunities and relationships that are more suited to our ethics, values, beliefs and talents.

Of course, I urge you to be sensible. Sometimes that truth doesn’t need to be spoken aloud, because doing so might put you in a difficult or dangerous position. But even acknowledging that truth to yourself can help you to choose a different course of action, to leave a job or relationship that no longer works for you, and to begin thinking about options that will suit you better than your current situation.

Sound is also about leadership. It is about being in that place where we can lead family or friends or business or a community by being ourselves and singing our own song in a way that attracts everyone else to us.

When we speak our truth, when we’re speaking our message we attract the people who need that message or who are aligned with whatever it is we are sharing.

If you’ve got a dream, a vision for a business, or something you’d like to offer in the world Sound encourages you to work towards making that a reality this week. Trust that someone will want what you have to offer. Be a contributor – add your voice and energy and know you were given these ideas or gifts for a reason.

Most of all, seek out what makes you happy and reach for what gives you joy. Life is too short to be miserable, stuck and unable to express your true feelings and innermost self.

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.

Need an oil to enhance your creativity, and to help you move out of overwhelm or anxiety? Use Neroli by diluting and applying to your pulse points as a perfume or add it to your diffuser alone or with a couple of drops of Frankincense to bring back a sense of being grounded and connected.

A Week for Action! – Monday Oracle 4 February 2019

“Start by doing what is necessary, then what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” ~ St. Francis Of Assisi

Hello, Lovelies!

February is a month for action and self-empowerment – for taking your plans and turning them into goals, action steps and habits. It’s a month for speaking your truth and standing your ground. It’s a month for creating positive change, embracing your individuality and investing in yourself and your dreams. It’s a short month that packs a big punch! Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card New Beginning brings us.

January was a month of planning, of identifying what we want more of and less of in our lives OR of being shown that by the Universe getting right up in our faces and poking her bony finger in our breastbone as the world fell apart around us while saying ‘Do you get it yet?’ (Hopefully, your answer was yes!)

We can’t keep repeating the same old patterns this year. We don’t want to. We can’t afford to. So here is February to help us get firmly on a better path – one that truly supports our goals, dreams, talents and wise inner self.

The week New Beginnings urges us not to quit on the things we started in January and where we’ve already fallen off the wagon. Broke your diet already? Make a list, do a shop, plan and pre-prepare your meals and start again. Slept in instead of going to the gym? Start again tomorrow. Meanwhile, don’t cave, decide you’re a loser and eat an entire tub of icecream. NO. You’ve got this. It’s normal to be wonky when we are trying something new. So you missed the early-morning gym session? Go for a walk. Hydrate. Decide to do better. Haven’t even begun to tidy the mess that is your home? Go pick one drawer, in one room. Or tackle the dirty dishes in the sink. Take a photo of ‘the before’. Tidy it. Take another photo. Compare the two. Remind yourself that progress is possible and that even the tiniest of steps forward is still a step forward. Lots of tiny steps and suddenly you’ll be a long way forward from where you are right now.

New Beginnings helps us to understand that the hardest part of change is committing and getting started because we don’t have any momentum yet, and the results of decisions and actions (or lack thereof) we made yesterday are all we can see. Don’t let your current circumstances dictate your future. Declare self-sovereignty, pick something and just make a start.

New Beginnings also reminds us that between the periods of doing and busy-ness we need to rest, to recharge and to have some fun. Change, healing and help for us and our dreams are all possible. Balance is everything this year and slow and steady will give lasting benefits over big efforts followed by crash and burn. You KNOW this is true so take it to heart. Be done with working and living unsustainably. Take time to build nurture and meaning into your daily life.

Need help to get started? Find a class, coach, course, buddy or mentor to provide support and motivation. (Unless that’s another one of your procrastination patterns, in which case just get on with it!)

Helpful essential oils?

Combine Basil, Lemongrass and Bergamot Essential Oils for an uplifting and focusing diffuser blend this week.

Basil is a fabulous oil for motivation and for overcoming exhaustion and overwhelm. It will help with moving you to a place of emotional and spiritual renewal, and aids focus and concentration. Lemongrass helps with being open to change and for pattern-breaking.  It’s a beautiful oil to diffuse to promote fresh and positive mental perspectives. Bergamot boosts optimism and confidence, and is relaxing and calming while maintaining energy levels. These oils can be used individually or combined in a ration of 3:1:4

Energies of February 2019

“ Your greatest self has been waiting your whole life; don’t make it wait any longer. ” 
~  Steve Maraboli

Hello, Lovelies 

At the beginning of every month, I discuss the energies and gifts of the month ahead and how we can best use them to make our lives satisfying, meaningful and productive.

I also choose a card to support the energies of the month. The deck I am using this year is The Good Tarot by Colette Baron-Reid, and February’s card is Ace of Earth.

What you focus on multiplies in February. 

February is a month for action as you move  into self-empowerment.  It’s a  busy month, with lots happening,  so make sure you get some quality downtime when you can.  You’ll find that there will be situations and behaviours you can no longer tolerate this  month, including  from  yourself.  Instead you’ll  look  to  new  behaviours, better  relationships  and healing  or  change  within  existing  situations.  If change  can’t be  negotiated  you’ll  be ready  to  let  go  and  move  on.  You’re  coming  more  and more  into  alignment  with your  inner  wisdom  and  core  values,  and it shows!

This is a  month for standing your ground  –  speaking your truth, standing up for what you believe in,  adding your voice to the voices of others so that you can create change in the world. It’s a big month for activism and social change, standing up for justice and fundamental rights  –  so speak out for yourself and on behalf of those who need your voice because theirs has been silenced or is too small to be heard.

In February you can create strong foundations for future wealth.  It’s a great month for all forms of investment, including investment in yourself, your ideas, your education, your health and wellbeing as well as improving your financial position. Call upon trusted experts. Get your will, insurances and finances in order, join a mentoring program or start/resume a course of study, get back to the gym, launch your business or product, and start a savings or loan repayment program.

This month you can step out of the shadows and into the light for everyone to  see you as you truly are. It’s a month for embracing your individuality and unique quirks and qualities.

The energies of February will top up your gratitude tank and help you appreciate the richness you already have, as well as anticipating the riches still to come.

Best crystals this month?

Blue Lace Agate and Sunstone

Blue Lace Agate (blue colour) supports your Throat Chakra, helping you to find your voice and speak your truth. It’s a great stone for all forms of communication, and it also brings a sense of calm.

Sunstone helps us to sit in a place of abundance thinking so that we see the blessings and possibilities in our life. In Sweden and Norway, in the old ways, it was often referred to as the Fire and Ice stone, as was considered to bring both passion and logic to a person. It is a form of Feldspar.

Essential oils to support your journey?

Combine Basil and Bergamot Essential Oils for an uplifting and focusing diffuser blend this month.

Basil is a fabulous oil for motivation and for overcoming exhaustion and overwhelm. It will help with moving you to a place of emotional and spiritual renewal, and aids focus and concentration.

Bergamot’s complex citrus and floral aroma is one of the favourite ingredients in my French Earl Grey tea! As an essential oil Bergamot boosts optimism and confidence, and is relaxing and calming while maintaining energy levels.

Speaking your Truth – tips for the Throat Chakra

Only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth, and that is not speaking it. – Naomi Wolf

(image by auslorri)

We often talk about speaking our truth, but how many people even understand what that means?  Our truth is that wise part of us that knows who we are, what we need, and what we believe in.  It is a personal truth – it differs between individuals, and it often changes over time.  What matters most is that we acknowledge this truth, and honour it by being able to voice our ideas, opinions, needs and wants.

If you have trouble asking for help, if you say no when you mean yes and yes when you mean no, if you find it hard to say what you really feel or think for fear of upsetting or offending others, if you worry about being judged or ridiculed for your opinions, or if your voice deserts you altogether when you’re called upon to speak up, it’s time to work on speaking your truth, and we can help do that by balancing and opening the Throat Chakra, an energy centre located near the base of the neck.  If you put your hand to your throat you’ll automatically gravitate to it.

The Throat Chakra is all about communication – voicing our inner truth, expressing ourselves and our creativity, speaking up about our personal intentions, desires, needs and ideas.  The colour of this chakra is blue.

The Throat Chakra governs the throat, mouth, gums, teeth, thyroid, neck, shoulders, arms and hands – we can hold a lot of tension here from not speaking and honouring our truth. We can bite down or even choke on all of our unexpressed thoughts and emotions. Do a little check of these areas.  Is there any tension, constriction or pain?  Yoga can help enormously with freeing up the energy here. (See the youtube clip below)

When our Throat Chakra is open and balanced we are excellent communicators – with good listening skills, strong non-verbal communications and a clear speaking voice. We speak our truth – we hear, acknowledge and express that inner voice.  We will also have access to our intuition and, for some people, the ability to connect into telepathic and channeling abilities. (Stay tuned to my website for information on courses to help develop intuitive and psychic skills – I’ll be uploading new dates this week.)

If the Throat Chakra is closed down or unbalanced we can suffer anxiety, frustration, low
immunity, poor or no boundaries, and an inability to ask for help or have our needs met.

Speaking up for yourself takes courage

This may be expressed outwardly as anger, criticism or judgment.  It may be expressed inwardly as fatigue, overeating and other addictions, self abuse in many forms, and not saying what we mean or feel for risk of hurting, angering, upsetting or offending others.

We might do too much talking and not enough listening, we can’t be told, we are nervous talkers, we fill the silences with words, we talk but don’t do enough doing or acting, we disclose too much, we have a lack of discernment in sharing information, we overcommit and overpromise, we ‘spin’ to make people feel good.  We swallow down our feelings and truths and they get lodged in the lower chakras, causing further blockages and lack of flow.

5 steps to help us find and speak our truth:

  1. Journalling is a terrific way to explore our thoughts and beliefs, both the conscious and the unconscious ones.  Listen to the guided meditation in Step 5 and then write in your journal, allowing yourself to just write stream of consciousness.
  2. Take small steps – say no without justifying your answer to something minor that you don’t want (or yes, to something small that you do),  eg – ‘no more for me, thanks’ when a friend tries to get you to eat an extra helping and you would have done it just to be polite, or ‘yes please’ when you are offered the last piece of something when you would normally have declined, even though you wanted it.
  3. Bee Breath Meditation (We’ll cover this tomorrow!)  A great activity for freeing up the energy of the Throat Chakra.
  4. Singing – it doesn’t matter how or even what you sing.  Just use your voice, and do it with expression, energy and joy. Or anger or any other emotion you need to get ‘out’.  Your words don’t have to match the music. If you really struggle to speak your truth and find this very confronting, start with the youtube clip below.  It’s a kids’ song, with lots of movements that free up and energise the throat chakra area.  Sing along and do the actions, even if you feel silly. Then have a big drink of water afterwards.  Brilliant!    
  5. Guided meditation – I’ve recorded a simple ten-minute guided meditation to help you work with the energy of your throat chakra.  Listen by clicking on the link below.
