“I’m an adventurer, looking for treasure,” he said to himself.”
~ Paulo Coelho
I have a friend who is an adventurer. Dan is his name, and we met at university a long, long time ago. Dan is the kind of guy who packs a rucksack, buys a ticket to some obscure destination and then starts walking. He is that old-fashioned kind of off-the-beaten-track traveller who almost seems to exist in a parallel dimension, so different is his life to most people I know. He’ll travel by mule train, bus, jeep, cargo boat, ferry, motorbike or river raft. He goes deep into countries most people fear to travel. He looks like a bearded nomad and is burned bronze, lean-limbed and able to communicate in several languages and dialects.
Dan and I came to a happy agreement some years ago. He loves to look for treasure, and in his distant past he was a geologist. For a crystal-loving girl like me Dan is a dream come true! Our relationship is this: I give him a wad of cash, he goes off on his adventures, I hear little or nothing from him and then three months or six months or a year later he comes home again and he has swapped my money for rocks, minus a little he’s used for living expenses.
Dan’s been gone since November last year, but I’m catching up with him on Saturday to collect his latest haul of crystals for me. I can’t wait to see what treasures he’s unearthed, and they come just in time for my Brisbane pop-up shop at the end of the month (details here).
I feel like a kid at Christmas, staying up to wait for Santa!
I promise I’ll post pics when we’ve unwrapped all the goodies he has for us.
Much love, Nicole ❤ xx
PS – Pop Up Shop and June Workshops:
All my gorgeous new crystals will be available at my upcoming Pop Up Shop!
If you’re looking for some extra support for your spiritual journey check out my upcoming Pop Up Shop, Channelling Night and One Day Workshops in Brisbane 29 June to July.
The Pop Up Shop runs over Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Workshops are over Saturday and Sunday.
On Saturday June 30 I’ll be teaching Foundation Spiritual Practices (the things I used to develop my own psychic and intuitive skills, self-awareness and compassion), and on Sunday July 1 I’ll teach Meditation and Mala Making (this second workshop is brilliant if you are feeling stressed and overwhelmed, stuck or suffering from anxiety or depression). No matter what level you’re at I’ll have something for you on my program. More details here!
All details are on my EVENTS tab at the top of my blog post or here at this link.
