I was horrified the first time it happened…

“Most fears of rejection rest on the desire for approval from other people. Don’t base your self-esteem on their opinions.”
~ Harvey Mackay

I remember, years ago, when I first started channelling.

It was excruciating.

My logical mind was stuck in judgement, cynicism, scepticism and disbelief. My soulful self trusted anyway and urged me on. I was conflicted, confused and stuck, with no-one to show me the way or help me.

And then my sister stepped forward.

She used her scientific curiosity and encouraged me to do the same. With her beside me I stepped more and more into the person I am today. I worked from a trance channel space, with my sister or trusted friends sitting with me, asking questions, guiding the sessions and recording them for me or taking notes.

At first I channelled Guides and Spiritual Beings. Their messages were helpful and wise. We found evidence of things that proved that I wasn’t making it all up. That helped me to not give up. I worked on my craft and became more and more competent in what I was doing. It was fascinating. I began to feel good about my abilities.

And then the awful day came.

I was with my sister and some Aboriginal friends; Vynette, Leanna, and Liz. We meditated together and then I settled into the trance space. But instead of channelling one of my Guides I channelled this squeaky-voiced, childlike being.

She told us her name was Sokli, and that she was what we humans would call a fairy.

My friends asked her many questions, to which she happily responded. Sokli was funny and earnest and talkative.

The session ended and everyone was abuzz.

Everyone except me.

I was horrified. I had just channelled a fairy. What if someone found out? How would anyone take me seriously ever again? I didn’t know anyone who channelled fairies. All the spiritual and psychic folk channelled dead people or Ascended Masters and Master Guides and Very Important Energies With Wise Sharings For Humanity.

Perhaps it was a fluke, I convinced myself. But at the very next session she turned up again. And again. And again.

Gradually we began to know her well. That was over twenty-five years ago, and Sokli has now become a dear friend and companion. She’s still funny and wise, and all of my students and clients who have met her have been entranced by her eagerness to help, her specific and personalised wisdoms about health, food, crystals, animals and plants. Sokli is generous and caring, and she has a beautiful innocence and straightforward way about her.

I’m embarrassed that I was so awkward about all of this emerging spiritual and psychic phenomena back then, and about people finding out that I believed in fairies. I still worried so much about how I would appear to others, and about my credibility.

Now I feel blessed to have Sokli as one of my crew.

Humans from all corners of the earth have long believed in spirit beings who came from the earth herself, and who could – at times – walk between worlds or dimensions. Not Gods. Not Angels. Not ETs. Beings different to ourselves who are intrinsically tied to nature and the planet. There are many names for them. Many cultural beliefs. Our Ancient Tribes have always believed.

Children believe in them.

But as adults in the modern Western world, we are taught that this is childish. After twenty-five years of experience, I beg to differ.

Come hang out with me and Sokli in Brisbane on June 22 (Details here) and find out for yourself.

And don’t worry if you live too far away to make it. After the event we’ll create a special online package to share the magic with you, no matter where you live!

Building a New Crystal Grid

“Seriously, Nicole. These rocks weigh a tonne! I’ll get the tractor or we’ll be here til next year.” ~ Ben, ever-patient husband and rock shifter

We’ve been busy over the past few weeks, adding to a crystal grid built out on the earth here on my farm.

We prepared the site, Ben slashed the grass short, we gridded out the central stones and then we began constructing the complex design stone by stone.

In Ben’s massive farm shed where he houses our tractors we have racks and racks of stones. I’ve been collecting them for over twenty-five years. There are plenty here for any kind of grid we may like to construct, and many of them have already been in other grids. The energy they create is incredible.

Here’s Ben taking down the very old trays of my most precious smaller lasers, generators, raw points and Lemurian singing quartz.

It holds all the crystals that I will take to my Fairy Tea Party.

It holds all the crystals for my students in the upcoming Temple of Light Shamanic Meditation Retreat.

It holds all the crystals for my end-of-year event and for ‘Platform’ my final retreat for the year. (This is a Retreat for those of you who have a Calling and who need to get your message out into the world. We’ll be helping you craft your message, identify your audience and get your book or course outline written as well as a lot of other important practical and creative stuff like using social media. If that sounds like you, email my PA Trish Lyons directly at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com and she’ll add you to our pre-course list so you can be the first to access the course information and early-bird bookings.)

There are so many stones in this grid.

Wild stones. Polished stones. Tumbled stones. Orbs and generators. A cave. Working Stones and Shaman Stones, Meditation Stones, Healing Stones, Art Stones and Personal Talismans.

It’s been a long time since we’ve made a grid this big, or this magical.

Right now it’s being washed by gentle rain, and sung to by all the birds at out farm.

When the time is right I’ll post some images and perhaps add some extra stones for you.

Happy Weekend!
Lots of love, Nicole ❤ xx

How You Shape My Morning


“Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world. For, indeed, that’s all who ever have.” ~ Margaret Mead

Good morning, Lovelies!

It’s just after 5am. I am here at my desk, about to begin writing my blog, and I thought today I would share how you shape my morning routine.

I was awake a little before 4am, as I always am, to meditate. Right now I am meditating twice a day for the students who recently attended my ‘Connect to Your Calling’ Retreat. I check in on each of them energetically and work on them as they need it. Then I tune in to you. I offer up my prayers for you and your families. I send you love and healing, I hold the intent for you that you know yourself, care for yourself and are able to express your unique personality and gifts in the world. I send love and light and peace to situations, places, people and leaders. And finally, I ask how I can best serve you today which is usually how I come up with whatever I will write in my blog.

My husband is still sleeping. My dogs are asleep. The world is quiet. It’s just me, holding space for you. This is my sacred time. The time where I can reach out to you, or make a positive difference in your life somehow.

I know some of us have never met, in person anyway. But you matter to me. Caring for you shapes my day. You see, when I was younger and very ill I felt so alone. I had no energy for friendships or connection. My first marriage had recently failed. I was completely broke and broken. Each day was a struggle. I felt that if I were to die no-one would even notice. I was socially and emotionally isolated.

Then one day I went into a tiny shop in Brisbane that sold items from Tibet. It became somewhere I hung out at whenever I had the energy. I bought my first singing bowl, and a Buddhist monk taught me some Tibetan meditation techniques using the singing bowl and a mala, and gifted me some mala beads. One day a new group of monks from Tibet arrived and through a translator I learned that they meditated for their community and the world every day. Each of them worked to support different groups of people, and in that moment I understood that somewhere in the world were people I had never met who were including me in their prayers, thoughts and meditations, with the sole intent that they somehow provide comfort or support to me. They explained to me that many monks and nuns from different faiths did this kind of work, and that this work of holding space for people was something I could do too. This was something I had also been shown by my Aboriginal Aunties.

The monks helped me to establish my own meditation practice for serving others, and I have done that in my morning and evening meditations ever since.

Often I have woken in the night because of my connection with you. Perhaps I will hold you in my thoughts and send you love and energy. Sometimes I will get out of bed and contact you directly by message or phone, or I will see that you have reached out to me or have posted publicly about a problem and I will respond. I see that as part of my life, a life where we are all connected even if we have not ever met in person.

This morning I need you to know that in this tiny corner of the world is a woman whose first thought each morning is you. That the prayers I offer, the meditation I do, the incense I light is for you. Know that there are many others who hold that prayerful and loving space for you too. Our humanity unites us, our love and service binds us. Tune in and feel those waves of energy, those ripples of love that are always there for you. You are truly loved. You matter.

So, that is how you shape my morning.

I’m going to make a cup of tea now, and write in my journal. Then the day will unfold and off I’ll go to meet it.

But tonight in my meditation, and tomorrow morning, I will be with you.

All my love, Nicole ❤ xx

March 2019 Supermoon – Because Good Things Come In Threes

“They say a person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world: someone to love, something to do, and something to hope for.” 
~ Tom Bodett

Last night the Supermoon shone down upon us. I’ve come home to our farm for a few days to rest and catch my breath, and the moon woke me just after midnight with her luminous glow.

Did you feel the moon magic too?

I’m in love with the energies of this moon and the energetic phase she heralds. It’s the last Supermoon for 2019 – and we’ve had the blessing of a Supermoon every month in this first quarter of the year.

This particular moon is clearing away obstacles to our progress and success – she is helping us to move towards our joy, and strengthening our belief in ourselves and in our dreams.

I stood under her silvery gaze last night and moon-bathed until I felt peaceful, serene and filled up with love and gratitude. I can feel this shift of energy, I can feel doors closing and opening, and I’ve woken this morning with a strong optimism for the unfolding story of my life.

My wish for you is that you can find some of that Supermoon energy for yourself this week!

Biggest love and hugs, Nicole ❤️ xx

Balance And Re-Energise Your Chakras With This Quick Exercise


“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” 
~ Nikola Tesla

Chakras are energetic gateways or portals. Each has its own colour, and governs different areas and emotions within the body. I have meditated on each of the following images, and programmed each picture to energise, open, balance and heal your chakras.

How to use today’s blog:

  1. Slowly scroll down the page, gazing at each picture in turn.
  2. Notice which picture (or pictures) is more vibrant and attractive to you.
  3. Go back to that image (images) and spend a little longer.  Draw that colour deep into your body.  See if any words, impressions, emotions or images come up for you. You might even want to use that as the beginning of a journalling activity. These colours will feed and energise your chakras and are great indicators of what chakras are already flowing and working well or in the process of opening and healing.
  4. Also pay attention to any pictures that seem very flat and energetically unappealing. Note what chakra that picture relates to.  Once again see if any words, impressions, emotions or images come up for you. This flat energy will correspond to chakras that are blocked, stagnant or stuck.  Send them some white light and a little extra love.
  5. Run your eyes over the images again.  See if there is any change.  Eventually you’ll find that all of the pictures have an equal brightness as you come back into balance.

1.Base Chakra: Foundation, survival, security, safety, energy, money, grounding, physicality

2. Sacral Chakra: Creativity, well-being, sexuality, emotional expression, abundance, pleasure

3. Solar Plexus Chakra: Self esteem, individuality, self-worth, self confidence, personal authority, I AM

Yellow Marigolds image from jpegwallpapers.com

4. Heart Chakra: Love for self and others, inner peace, joy, giving and receiving

This gorgeous image from animalspot.net

5. Throat Chakra: Speaking your truth, asking for what you need, all forms of communication

This image from funxite.com

6. Third Eye Chakra: Imagination, intuition, vision, wisdom, innovation, decision making, spiritual connection

Image from chriskeeney.com

7. Crown Chakra: Divine Connection, spirituality, bliss, purity, consciousness, unity, BEing

Image from en.wikipedia.org

I’d love to know how this activity felt for you – so please feel free to share any of your experiences by leaving a comment below.  Much love to you, and all of my intentions, blessings and well-wishes for you to feel energised, balanced and harmonised.

Retreat Success and Finally – a Day Off!


“ When you prepare for something big in your life and work towards it with such intensity, it takes confidence to take a day off and have peace with it. ” 

 J.R. Rim

Hi Everyone!

This is Chelsi and I am hijacking Nicole’s blog.

Kidding aside, I would like to tell everyone that after a very successful retreat (congratulations to everyone who finished Connect to Your Calling Retreat and Mentoring Program!), Nicole will be taking a day off today to sleep in and she is sending all her love to you!

Love Lots!

The Authority of Soul


“Whatever you are physically…male or female, strong or weak, ill or healthy–all those things matter less than what your heart contains. If you have the soul of a warrior, you are a warrior. All those other things, they are the glass that contains the lamp, but 
you are the light inside.” 
~ Cassandra Clare

I am so wearied by the New Age teachers and practitioners telling you that the tarot cards have the power, or your Guides, or the Angels, or the dead relatives who sit all around you. Or that your life is goverened by some soul contract or past life karma of which you have no knowledge. I want you to know that this was never true.

One of the things that is most important to me as a metaphysical teacher is for you to understand that your ultimate power lies within you, your ultimate authority and wisdom also. This is YOUR life, and when you learn to tune in to your own wisdom you become empowered to make the decisions that are right for you. No-one knows you better. And everything I teach is for the purpose of helping you know yourself, to connect you to your inner wisdom and to help you forge your own considered path in the world.

It’s our last day of Retreat today, and our participants will leave here having deepened that soul connection and with renewed personal clarity. I’m so proud of all they have achieved and I am excited to be supporting them on the next part of their journey as I mentor them in actioning the Calling they have identified for themselves.

When you stop giving your power away, and learn to trust your inner Guidance, so much more is possible.

How about you? Are you steady and trusting in listening to the wisdom of your heart or are you still looking outside you for guidance and direction?

When you learn to tune in, and you start to trust what you know, your life will change for the better. I promise.

Much love to you, Nicole ❤ xx

A New Online Course For You! Craft A Visionary Talisman

“This is what rituals are for. We do spiritual ceremonies as human beings in order to create a safe resting place for our most complicated feelings of joy or trauma, so that we don’t have to haul those feelings around with us forever, weighing us down. We all need such places of ritual safekeeping. And I do believe that if your culture or tradition doesn’t have the specific ritual you are craving, then you are absolutely permitted to make up a ceremony of your own devising, fixing your own broken-down emotional systems with all the do-it-yourself resourcefulness of a generous plumber/poet.”
~ Elizabeth Gilbert

When I lived in the remote Kimberley district, during my year of psychic awakening, my Aboriginal Aunties taught me the importance of ritual, respect and self-empowerment.

Over the years I have had other Elders as teachers and mentors, and I have also had years of connection with my own energetic team as I have journeyed this spiritual path.

One of the rituals I now follow each year that supports me in very practical ways is the choosing of a Guiding Card for my year ahead, and then the creation of a Visionary Talisman. I have created a Visionary Talisman for myself every year for the past fifteen years, and I’ve found the personal and spiritual growth I have achieved during this time to have been accelerated by this intentional and mindful creative practice. It truly is a powerful tool for transformation and manifestation. The Talisman is also a lovely focusing tool to use for meditation and journalling work, and a strong visual reminder to me of my Guiding Card qualities and messages.

In this course, I’ll be showing you to how to connect with your own guiding card for the year ahead, and how to create a Symbolic Lexicon and Visionary Talisman of your own.

This is shamanic work. Deep work. Work to help you know yourself, work to strengthen your intuition, work to build your psychic and spiritual connections. You don’t need to be an artist, and you don’t need to have any experience. I’ll guide you through every step, and teach you the foundation skills of everything you need to know.

The work of crafting your Talisman can be done in an afternoon, or over a couple of shorter sessions. But that’s not all there is to this course. I then show you how to work with the tools you create so that they bring meaning, guidance and comfort to you throughout the year.

Did you ever want to be a witch or a wizard when you were a kid? One who could cast spells and work magic?

Or perhaps you have been fascinated by The Law of Attraction, watched the movie The Secret or have used vision boards/dream boards, visualisation or positive affirmations?

Have you long been intrigued by shamans and metaphysical practitioners and wanted to do similar things but don’t know how?

Or maybe you have always liked to work with goal-setting and being accountable to a project goal or plan?

Creating a Visionary Talisman works a little like all of the things I’ve just mentioned. 

Your Talisman radiates the energy of your Guiding Card into the world in a way that is personally attuned to you!

It is a powerful, personal energetic tool which you infuse with positive energy and intention – adding symbols that will magnetise you to certain situations, emotional strengths, energetic qualities and opportunities.

Think of it as both a beacon that radiates energy into the world and a magnet that will draw ideas, inspiration and energies to you, amplify helpful qualities within you and align you with those energies and qualities.

The course has 8 lessons, all available online, so that you can work at your own pace. You’ll also have lifetime access to the course materials.

I want as many of you as possible to experience this work, so we’ve decided to offer this course at an introductory low price of $57AUD. Normally the price would be $77 to $97AUD and it will go back up to that again soon. If you’re already a paid member of my YOM community this course is FREE for you. (Want to join us as a member?

Advice for Emerging Sensitive and Psychic Souls


“May you always find your intuitive voice and may the language of your intuition sing.” 
~
 Jodi Livon

Hello, Lovelies!
If you’re sensitive energetically then you are bound to be sensitive in other areas of your life.  This is especially true if you are going through a process of spiritual or psychic awakening. At a time of awakening, energies and abilities that have been dormant within you begin to assert themselves in your life.  This can be quite a turbulent and confusing time.

With the year’s current astrological events many sensitive souls are going though a period of spiritual or psychic awakening.

The following tips will help you to adjust to these emerging energies and gifts over the weeks and months ahead:

  • Rest.  When you’re growing and changing, rest is one of the best gifts you can give yourself.
  • Avoid crowded places such as shopping centres and football games when you are feeling particularly sensitive or energetically vulnerable.
  • Avoid difficult relationships and people who drain, upset or unbalance you.  Limit contact with the crazy-makers in your life.
  • If fluorescent and other artificial light sources bother you counteract them by spending time in daylight or moonlight.
  • Eat well.  Favour organic foods, with an emphasis on fresh, local produce, with plenty of leafy green vegetables and root vegetables, rice, pulses and yoghurt. Avoid processed food and sugar. Some people may need to avoid meat at this time.  Others may need meat to ground them.  Listen to your body.  If you’re especially sensitive avoid wheat as well.
  • Avoid alcohol, drugs and stimulants. Really be honest with yourself about substances like coffee and how they may affect you. Cut down or avoid if necessary.
  • Take a good powdered magnesium supplement.  Your muscles and nervous system use magnesium to relax and the body burns it like rocket fuel when you are engaging in energy work and psychic activity.
  • Drink plenty of fresh, clean water.
  • Use yoga, qi gung or tai chi to ground you and move energy through your body.
  • Spend time in nature.
  • Spend time on your own, exploring the things that interest you.
  • Spend time journalling and in self-exploration using tools such as crystals or cards if that feels right for you.
  • Avoid chemicals in your cleaning and personal care products. Avoid places that have a strong artificial or chemical energy.
  • Use natural and alternate therapies to help clear and support your body.
  • Meditate.
  • Pray, and talk with God.
  • Explore vibrational therapies such as essential oils, bush or bach flower essences, crystals, music, colour and aromatherapy.
  • Trust, look for support and know that things do get easier over time.

I’m holding you in my daily prayers and meditations, and wishing you well as you reconnect with your own natural intuitive gifts.
Love and Light, Nicole ❤ xx

Free Guided Meditation for the January 2019 Supermoon Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse


 “We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. The old skin has to be shed before the new one can come.” ~ Joseph Campbell

The Supermoon Blood Moon Full-Moon Total Lunar Eclipse is almost upon us. It will happen on January 20/21, and it brings with it great energies of shift and transformation.

This eclipse is the ‘Night of the Luminous Soul’.

It gifts us the capacity to become calm warriors in our families and communities. A calm warrior is brave and strong and does not need aggression or violence in order to fight for their cause. A calm warrior acts with inner strength, wisdom, courage and intelligence. A calm warrior lives with peace in their heart. They act from love.

The eclipse heralds energies of courage, clarity, determination, resilience, patience and empathy. We realise that we are not our struggle. We can sit in compassion for our current selves, rise above our pain and confusion and begin to align ourselves with solutions and actions that will change the face and future of our world, starting right now. It is a time for revelations and breakthroughs, for divine inspiration and conscious creativity. It is a time for clarity and renewal.

Guided Meditation

To help you work with the energies of this Lunar Eclipse I’ve recorded a free Guided Meditation for you. You can sit or lie down to do this meditation. Please choose a crystal or stone to hold in your cupped hands as you listen. You’ll need to set aside twenty minutes for the meditation, and some time afterwards for integration and journalling. It’s also fine to fall asleep while listening to the meditation. To enhance the meditation you may also like to diffuse or anoint yourself with some Jasmine, Neroli or Ylang Ylang essential oil.

You can work with this meditation any time between 18 January and 5 February 2019, when the New moon closes off the energies of the current eclipse.

Click the arrow below to play the meditation:

Here are some simple activities you can do in the next few days to enhance your intuitive connection and psychic ability and to clarify your life direction:

Reflections from the Guided Meditation

Take some time to write down any insights or clarity you received during your meditation. It’s fine to do this meditation more than once, and to add to this journalling exercise over time.

Who Am I?

This activity opens you to your own soul wisdom as well as Universal wisdom. It can help to show you who you are now, and who you have the potential of becoming. Don’t judge anything that comes to you. Write it all down!

Image from yogadigest.com

Directions: Sit comfortably with your hands in the Anjali Mudra (prayer position) so that your hands are in front of your heart and your eyes are gazing straight ahead. You can close your eyes if you want. (Note: If you also want to work with a crystal for this meditation hold the stone in your cupped hands first, energise it with light, the place it on your lap or on the ground in front of you or under your chair – then sit in the prayer position) Breathe deeply, relax your body and then ask Who Am I? Wait for any words, images or impressions to appear. Then open your eyes and begin to answer this question in your journal. You might want to do this a few times in the next few days, as each time you do this you will be able to go deeper and into more detail.

Using Cards for Clarification:

Choose an oracle or tarot deck that is meaningful to you. Shuffle the cards and then choose three, placing them face down in front of you. Once again sit in Anjali Mudra (prayer position), calm your mind and ask Who am I? When you are ready open your eyes and begin to work with the cards.

Image by Mysterious Lass at deviantart.com

Turn over the first card – This shows you who you have been, in the past for this current life, or perhaps even from previous lives. Write down what comes to you in your journal.

Turn over the second card – This shows you who you are right now, including strengths and limitations. Write down what comes to you in your journal.

Turn over the third card – This shows you who you can become, or what you can rise above for this current life. Write down what comes to you in your journal.

Reflection Exercise for Life Clarity: Leave the journal for a while. An hour perhaps, or longer. Whatever feels right to you. Then come back and read what you have written. Look for the words that resonate, and for anything that provides inspiration or direction.

Now write again, this time listing your intentions for this lifetime. Who do you want to be? What do you want to contribute, create, have or experience? How will you do this? Trust that whatever is in your heart is possible!

Enjoy this time of connection and reflection. You’re in our hearts, prayers and meditations, and we wish you well.
Much love, Nicole  xx
