How To Be A Traveller In Your Own Hometown.

“Our battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again; we had longer ways to go. But no matter, the road is life.” – Jack Kerouac

 

Hello, Lovelies,

This week’s energies support all kinds of travel, adventure and fun. Which is great if you happen to be on holidays or have plenty of free time up your sleeve to whisk yourself away at short notice. But what if you don’t? Try these solutions instead.

Happy Adventuring!

Lots of love, Nicole ❤ xx

1. Drive a new route to work, or anywhere else you normally travel in a routine way. This gives you the chance to see new things, and to stimulate your mind.

2. Eat out somewhere new. Try a cuisine that’s new to you. Try an ethnic place, or a tiny hole-in-the-wall Mom and Pop place, or that brewhouse or pizza place you’ve been meaning to try for ages but never got around to.

3. Be a tourist in your hometown. Go do the things you’d do if you were showing international visitors around. I bet you haven’t been to some of those attractions or destinations in a very long time, if at all. Trip Advisor can be your best friend here.

4. Wander around the city, or a shopping mall you haven’t been to before. Give yourself time to stroll, and to enjoy everything you see.

5. Visit a Farmers Market or a Food Hall. Buy something new and interesting to cook for dinner.

6. Tune your car radio to another station, or shake up your usual music mix. Sing a little. Dance if you feel inclined.

7. Go on a train trip, bus trip or ferry ride. It doesn’t matter where you go. Use the time to look around and see new things. Disembark and go for a stroll. Hop back on and go home again.

8. Check out what free exhibitions and concerts are on in your hometown. Museums, art galleries, public libraries and universities often have the coolest free stuff. Go visit one!

9. Pack a picnic lunch and go to the local park. Invite some friends. Take a frisbee, a football, or some music. Hang out, laugh and enjoy yourself.

10. Have a themed meal at home. Choose a cuisine or a destination anywhere in the world. Invite a few friends or family. Choose some food and music. Ask everyone to bring a plate if that’s easier. Add an extra something for yourself and your guests in the way of entertainment. Maybe everyone needs to dress ‘Tropical’ or ‘Italian’. Maybe it’s charades or a singalong. Or a crazy boardgame. Have fun with it. Party!

 

Energies of September – 2018

“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” 
~  Eleanor Roosevelt

Hello, Lovelies :)

September is a month for adventuring and travel. It’s a month for exploring new lands, or undiscovered parts of ourselves. Routine and the usual choices will hold no interest for us. We will long for life to surprise us, and we’ll feel compelled to try new things. We will be less held back with worry about what other people think of us. 

Cards for the Month:

I’ve chosen two cards for September for you: one from Colette Baron-Reid’s Enchanted Map and one from Steven Farmer’s Earth Magic Oracle. Please note I don’t use these cards in a conventional way, but rather as a stimulus for channeled information.

Here is what I have received from each card:

“In the distant golden sunset sky, a magnificent rainbow is opening wings to fly.”

~  Debasish Mridha

In September we see that having a solid foundation of self-awareness gives us wings to fly. It’s a month of gaining perspective and learning lessons without becoming embittered. In fact, as we gain perspective we become more upbeat. We see how far we have come, we recognise our resilience and we regard ourselves with a new respect. As we are uplifted we are more easily able to uplift others. Suddenly it seems practical to choose a future for ourselves that is bigger and more incredible than anything we’d dared to dream before. We start saying ‘Why not?’ instead of ‘Why?’ and we mean it as an invitation to the Universe to make our dreams come true.

September energies dare us to live boldly and to ask more of life. There is a spirit of fun about this month. We’re invited to take ourselves and our problems a little less seriously. It’s easier to push past old limitations and to launch ourselves out into the world.

We’re empowered to make decisions and to instigate great change this month.

We feel comfortable to be in a position of authority in our own lives, and our intuition shows us solutions to problems that have puzzled us for months or even years.

Suddenly the answers are obvious and the timing is right. So, stay open. Trust! Change in on the way.

The second card I’ve chosen is Milky Way.

“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.”
~Maya Angelou

September is also a month of karmic, ancestral and past-life connections and revelations. Expect strange but meaningful dreams, weird but helpful insights into family and major relationship dynamics and out-of-the-box ideas that provide opportunities, blessings and unexpected possibilities.

Best crystals this month?

Pyrite and Tree Agate

Pyrite promotes confidence, good decision-making, courage and the ability to embrace your potential.

Tree Agate heightens your intuition, connecting you to synchronicity, soul wisdom, guides and universal energy. It promotes inner peace and emotional healing.

Essential oils to support your journey?

September suits oils that promote joy, confidence and happiness. Some of my favourite single oils for that include Bergamot, Grapefruit, Ylang Ylang, Orange and Geranium.

I’m loving Young Living’s Clarity and Joy blends for September too. 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 Joy to help you move back to a place of contentment, confidence and happiness. It’s great to inhale directly, diffuse or add a drop to Heart Chakra, throat and inner wrists like perfume. A few drops added to your bath make for magical self-care.

You can find the oils here.
