Energies of May 2019

“ Girls you’ve gotta know when it’s time to turn the page. ” ~ Tori Amos

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 May’s card is Chariot.

May is such a breakthrough month – it’s a time for positive progress, big leaps forward and fine-tuning of your self-awareness. Use experts and wise people to help you move past stuckness and overwhelm, and find your balance between sustainability and momentum. Expect your own wisdom to grow too this month!

May is a month where you can begin to find that balance between sustainability and momentum. It’s a month for positive progress and big leaps forward. It’s a month for successes and sweet victories.

This month you are in a position to help yourself and help others too.  You have the power to keep creating change, so use your position wisely.

Even as you progress forward this month keep asking yourself what’s not working, where are you still unhappy, what are you missing? You are fine-tuning your awareness this month and developing a much deeper understanding of what matters to you. Your wisdom and compassion are growing.

May is a terrific energy for making deals, for positive outcomes, for all forms of negotiation, for progress and offers.  It’s also a good time for buying and selling well.

Your hard work is starting to pay off.  When you purchase anything favour quality over cheap. You’re better off to have one beautiful expensive item than many cheap things you’re not so fond of.

This month see everything as necessary for your growth. You’ll gain deeper insights into relationships and work situations and develop emotional maturity around dealing with difficult situations and people.

May supports you to get help with the big issues – think doctors,  lawyers, tax accountants, business advisors, and anyone else who brings wisdom and experience to your problems.  In areas where you’ve been stuck or overwhelmed this will be your best way forward.

On a more global level, you’ll see that united voices and the power of the people have the capacity to bring about real change.

Best crystals this month?

Pyrite and Dalmation Jasper

Pyrite provides passion, power and protection. It builds determination and self-belief. 

Dalmatian Jasper helps you move forward, living in mindfulness. It releases stress and amplifies joy.

Essential oils to support your journey?

Grapefruit essential oil will promote optimism this month, helping you to be both decisive and positive. It’s a super choice if you’re feeling a bit flat or blue. It’s a great blend for your diffuser if you combine it with Frankincense, Geranium and Palmarosa. Use 2 to 3 drops of each oil in your blend.

Frankincense amplifies your true nature, connects your heart and mind and brings intuitive awareness. It also centres you in your personal power.

Palmarosa stabilises your emotions and rejuvenates you when you are feeling tired or emotionally battered and bruised. It’s gentle nature will help recenter you when you’ve lost your way.

Geranium is 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.

I’m passionate about essential oils and their capacity to support our wellness journey and our spiritual and emotional wellbeing. If you’d like to know more or want to source the oils I recommend and trust visit this site or contact me at channelnc@gmail.com

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

In My Happy Place!

“The cure for anything is salt water — sweat, tears, or the sea.” ~ Isak Dinesen

 

My Soul Sanctuary Retreat begins today.

Before my work begins, before my week kicks off, I have this. The beach, the dawn, the rising sun, the smell of salt and the foam of waves. I have my husband’s hand in mine, and a crazy cafe dog running crazy circles.

Then, after walking and swimming, there will be coffee.

My day will be begun. I will soon find myself on Retreat, and it will be wonderful, as it always is. But first, time for me. Time for my loved ones. Time in my happy place.

I’ll keep you posted all week about our goings on and lots of other stuff besides, I promise. There will be much to share.

Until then, hugs and love, Nicole xx

Crazy, Beautiful, Sustainable Madness

2015-11-19 06.06.59

“There is no such thing as work-life balance. Everything worth fighting for unbalances your life.”
~ Alain de Botton

 

It’s a crazy time of year for me. As the end of year/beginning of the new year always is, in my line of work.

I have a retreat coming up in less than two weeks. Followed by workshops in Brisbane, my Christmas Pop-Up Shop, and the launch of my brilliant new secret project.

I have a calendar filled with client appointments for psychic readings.

My inboxes are groaning with messages and requests from people in crisis. I have family members ill, and friends.

I’ve been up in the middle of the night skyping and facebooking with international clients who have been affected by recent world events. Or by big life things. There are a lot of big life things going on just now, haven’t you noticed?

My desk (ahem, kitchen table at farm…) looks like this. (See photo above of crystals and mugs of tea, and oracle cards and magnesium powder and diarised magic into the next year.) That’s the tidiest side. The other is filled with groaning paper and book towers as I research and finish my project.

And Christmas is just around the corner.

Sounds insane, huh?

But I don’t do insane anymore. I do sustainable madness.

Sustainable madness looks like this:

2015-11-18 06.41.51

And this:

2015-11-05 18.39.55

And this:

2014-06-06 09.04.03

 

And this:

2015-11-04 07.57.44

It means that in the middle of the crazy I have acupuncture treatments and farmers markets and nutritious meals and cafe mornings and walks on the beach and stupidly early nights where I am in bed by 7pm.

I burn incense and aromatherapy essential oils. I play mood music. I drink good tea, and have lots of stretch breaks. I eat tasty healthy snacks. I let myself enjoy the buzz of crazy, and this push to get all the things done. It’s exciting. It makes me feel alive.

When you live a life doing what you love, when you’re following your passions, sometimes that means you’ll need to put extra hours in. Or you’ll need to say no to some stuff, momentarily, while you meet a crazy deadline, or chew madly on that impossibly big mouthful of life you bit off.

But that’s okay. If you also leave a little room for the important things that fill you up. The things that stop you burning out. The things that nurture and support you.

I am taking nearly a month off early next year, so there’s that big delicious rest to look forward to as well.

How about you? Are you doing crazy now too? And is your crazy sustainable, and even kind of fun?

I’m really looking forward to sharing my formula for crazy, beautiful, sustainable madness, and helping you to find your own recipe for this inspirational, get-things-done space. Don’t let people tell you that you need work-life balance and for every day to look the same. Sometimes our balance is chunks of happy madness, followed by chunks of rest. That works just fine for me and I bet it will help you too!

Lots of love, Nicole <3 xoxo
