Wide Awake for a Reason

“Night gathers, and now my watch begins.” ~ George R.R. Martin


If you read my post yesterday you’ll know I didn’t get much sleep the night before. So last night I put myself to sleep at eight, all ready for an early night and a decent catch-up.

Of course, things didn’t go to plan. Just after midnight I woke up. I mean WIDE AWAKE. The sort of being awake where I know I might as well get out of bed. The sort of awake which I always recognise as a precursor to psychic work. I crept downstairs, careful not to wake my husband or the sleeping puppies.

First, I meditated, and sent love and healing energy out into the world. I explain that process well here, in one of my previous blog posts.

But even after all of that night-flying I didn’t feel done.

I cranked up the computer, and sat down to write. No, that didn’t feel right either. I opened up facebook.


And there, there were the reasons I was still wide awake.

  • A dear friend and client needing to chat about her own spiritual emergence. I’ve been holding that space for her for a while and I’m thrilled that she is finally stepping into her Light.
  • A lady on the other side of the world, reaching out to me in desperation over her teenage daughter with a severe eating disorder. We managed to convince her daughter it was time to go to hospital and into a special ward for her management and recovery.
  • A client who was emotionally distraught and suicidal. I talked her through and to a better place, made sure she had some support, and I’ll check in on her again tomorrow.

Situation normal, here at Camp Cody. I certainly can’t complain about life being dull. I’m winding down now, at four am. I’ll go meditate some more, and then hop back into bed and grab another hour or so of shuteye before Cafe Dog wakes me for a morning walk, a good coffee and the weekend papers with Ben.

At least my blog is written and all I shall have to do as I tumble out the door is press PUBLISH.

Today, God willing, I shall get some sleep! 🙂 I’m not complaining though. I feel blessed to do what I do. Please, don’t ever doubt that you are loved, and that you matter.

I’ll send you some extra love and energy in this next meditation! Bless xx

Hi! I'm Nicole Cody. I am a writer, psychic, metaphysical teacher and organic farmer. I love to read, cook, walk on the beach, dance in the rain and grow things. Sometimes, to entertain my cows, I dance in my gumboots. Gumboot dancing is very under-rated.

  1. Thank you Nicole…I tried to open this yesterday but couldn’t so pleased to see it again! I was so wanting to read as I started waking up at 4 am Qld time about a month ago. I was sleeping through thou day before that?? I am now back home in Byron and still that wake up cont.? I will just keep listening and be relaxed untill it passes. Im feeling blessed to be home in Byron! Love xxxx.

  2. Ah, I know those nights a bit too well. It is often a friend in need (early forced retirement so no more “clients”) or a poem/story demanding to be written. Perhaps tonight you will find some zzz’s?

  3. Wow Nicole. What an amazing night. The serinity and the flow you apply to these situations are such a gift for all you touch. I do trust you have found a little rest through this day. Love and light and blessings.

  4. I hate it when I wake up during the night and find myself awake but thankfully it doesn’t happen very often usually happens when I am dog sitting at my brothers place which of course I am doing this weekend

  5. Love the inspiration and perspective we day-trippers regularly receive from Camp Cody. Your insomnia gave solace and support to those reaching out to you. Sending healing blessings to you today. You enrich our lives dear Nicole. Lots of love and happy smiles. xox M

  6. What an eventful night Nicole. I’m sure everyone you helped will sleep better for connecting with you.

    What is the four am thing? I find that’s when, if I’ve woken during the night, I sleep best. It must be the ‘quiet time’. Lucky for me, right now, the birds start singing, and I mean really loudly, at 4:26am. So it’s a bit of a power nap. Lol!

    Have a magical day.

    1. i can totally relate shannyn, sleep 3-4 hours, up for 2-3 hours, then back into a really deep sleep later in the night – nicole you are a blessing! sx
