How To Drink In Colour – A Walking Meditation Technique for Soul Healing

“Let me, O let me bathe my soul in colours; let me swallow the sunset and drink the rainbow.” 
Khalil Gibran

Have you ever had a rough day? Silly question. Of course you have. Like you, I have my occasional difficult patch, that place in my life where emotionally (and sometimes physically) I am stretched thin. Sometimes it’s from psychic work, sometimes the dramas of life – it never really matters how I get there, once I am there the only thing to do is nurture.

But what do you do when you feel that terrible gnawing emptiness, exhaustion, or deep emotional pain? When you are so drained that you are out of ideas for how to make yourself feel better…

I recommend a walk.

On this walk I want you to do three things:

Breathe.

Let the rhythm of your steps begin to calm your mind, just like a moving meditation.

Drink in colour.
How do you drink in colour? Let your eyes drift to the things around you. Your soul will guide you towards colours that are soothing, healing, restoring, harmonising. Your chakras and your aura will become more energised. The colours you bring into your awareness will bring gifts to soothe and uplift you.

You’ll arrive home feeling calmer. You’ll find that eventually, or much sooner, answers and ideas start to flow.

Walking and drinking in colour is free. But the rewards are high. Often the best healing tools are right at our doorstep.

I’ve included some photos from around my farm for anyone who can’t get out on a walk of their own. Let the energies and colour reach you and energise you as if you were walking with me.

Much love to you, Nicole ❤ xx

Recharge You and Your Chakras in Five Minutes!

“Are you managing your energy well and using it for things that matter? Do you stop to recharge before you push yourself to critically low levels? Unplug to recharge.” 
Susan C. Young

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.

Lots of love, Nicole  xx

What I did after Retreat

“How much better is silence; the coffee cup, the table. How much better to sit by myself like the solitary sea-bird that opens its wings on the stake. Let me sit here for ever with bare things, this coffee cup, this knife, this fork, things in themselves, myself being myself.” 
Virginia Woolf

It was a big Retreat for me, this week that has just gone. Big pre-retreat prep. A big group. Big learnings. Big shifts. Big inner work.

All the while I held space. I worked hard twice a day before and after our coursework as I held the group in meditation, keeping their energy true as we moved deeper into shamanic practice. I was completely present for my students except when I was asleep or in the bathroom (the two times I asked for my privacy to be respected!).

I loved every minute of it, but it was intense and it demanded everything of me and then some. Still, what kind of teacher would I be if I didn’t give my all for my calling?

So, when Retreat ended I slept.

The first night I slept 12 hours straight through.

The next two days I moved between sleep, necessary duties and back to sleep again. I had no time for chatting. No energy for engagement.

All I longed for was solitude and nature. So that is what I gave myself, to the best of my ability.

Not only do I love this chair, and the view, I love the one fluffy cloud on the entire horizon, into which I poured all of my thoughts so that I sat empty, quiet and peaceful as I looked out over the ocean once the last person had left Retreat and I was alone.

Now I am feeling more myself, still tired but no longer exhausted. Still tired but ready to re-engage.

It is wonderful to have something in my life that I can give myself to completely. And the feeling of being fully used up at the end of my retreat was a good, good feeling. I had nothing left, and that was as it should be.

Today I am alert again. Ben and I are meeting a dear friend for coffee and an early breakfast and then I’ll ease myself back into life.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend, and time for yourself and your own recharging,

Much love, Nicole ❤ xx

 

It’s almost Retreat time!

“Living a spiritual life may not be easy. It demands total authenticity. It brings you to dance to a unique song that only you can hear fully, and sometimes you dance alone because no others can hear the music.” 
Debra Moffitt

 

Last night I ran a webinar for my students who are about to join me for the Accelerated Channelling and Sacred Geometry Retreat.

Right now they are scattered in many geographic locations. Soon they will begin to travel to join me in Byron Bay for the start of our Retreat on Friday.

But last night everyone was still at home, and we were connected by the amazing internet technology at our fingertips that allows us to be together no matter where we are.

Connected by our screens I taught my students the first of many ancient Shamanic rituals and techniques I will share with them over the coming days and weeks.

It seemed both wonderful and odd to be doing that, given how far back these traditions and teachings and lineages go, and how I was taught – in the old-school way, with no technology at all.

Not everything I will share can be taught over the internet. Some things just can’t be adapted to modern dislocation. Soon we will need to be face-to-face and stepped back from the everyday world for a while, so that we can have a foot in this world and a foot in another place – far from here.

I’m so looking forward to our time together, and to seeing what unfolds for each participant in the weeks, months and years ahead as a result of our work together.

Perhaps one day you’ll join us too.
Much love, Nicole ❤ xx

 

How To Attract a Soul Mate Into Your Life

“When you make a choice, you change the future.” 
Deepak Chopra

 

July is a wonderful month for love. But what if you don’t have any in your life yet? Today I’d like to share a simple technique with you that can help you call in a soul mate or rejuvenate an existing relationship. (Yes, Leisa, I wrote this post for you!)

When it comes to manifestation the Universe works like a giant restaurant. It will only deliver you what you order. If you keep changing your mind it makes it hard for those hard-working kitchen angels to create the right ‘dish’ and deliver it speedily to you.  Mixed messages are confusing for everyone, and will ultimately frustrate you in your attempts to find true love.

Most people spend more time choosing a car than they do choosing a life partner.  How often do people fall into a relationship and then try and make it over into the one they want?  We throw so much time and energy and money into trying to make square pegs fit into round holes.  Often years of our lives are spent fighting battles we were never meant to win.

Discernment is the key to successful relationships, and discernment must ALWAYS start with awareness.  Are you aware of what you want in a relationship?  For many people, their clearest opinions and decisions start out being based around what they DON’T want.  This is as good a place to start as any, as long as you are able to then turn each negative into a positive.  “I don’t want a partner who will cheat on me” becomes, “I deserve a partner who will be faithful and loyal to our relationship.”  Look to the good and unsuccessful relationships around you to guide you in making your love choices.

Take time to really think about the sort of partner and the type of relationship you are looking for. As you become clearer about what you want, begin by writing down the qualities and characteristics of this relationship. Create a ‘Love Shopping List’ and add to it as your awareness increases. Take your time with this. Do you rush into buying a house, or choosing an expensive once-in-a-lifetime holiday? Make your list comfortable, accurate and reflective of your innermost desires.

If you meet someone who clearly does not fit what you ordered, then wait!  Maybe the Universal Chef is still cooking your meal.  (And. of course, they may wonderfully surpass all of your expectations!)

 

Activity

I have used this method myself, and so have many of my students, friends and clients.  This activity involves letting the Universe know exactly what you are wanting in a love relationship so that it can deliver this to you. In every single case that I am aware of it has been successful! I also know of people who have refreshed and revived existing relationships using the same technique.

When you have compiled your list of characteristics and qualities for your desired partner (as explained in the previous paragraphs above) review them until you are satisfied with your choices.

Take a clean white sheet of paper and write the following:

I, (Insert your name), now chose the following in my life partner:

Now write down your list. Finish the work by writing, I now accept this or better in my life. Sign the work and set it to one side. 

Take a second piece of paper. On this piece write down all of the qualities and characteristics within YOU that you can offer a loving partner.  Be honest and humble.  Sign it with, I offer this and better to my life partner.  This part is important because the Universe is governed by laws of energetic exchange – you don’t get anything for nothing!

Now fold both pieces of paper and seal them in an envelope. Hold the letter in your hands. In your mind’s eye, imagine these pieces of paper and surround them with a pink bubble of Light. Pour love energy into the pink bubble until your letter feels fully charged.

Put the envelope somewhere safe, and place your expectations to one side. If you ever think of the letter send more love and light to the pink bubble of energy surrounding it. Be open to what comes to you. The Universe always surprises us with more good than we could ever imagine for ourselves.

Wishing for you a month of kindness, love and heart healing,

Nicole  xx

So Many Treasures!

“Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” 
AnonymousHoly Bible: King James Version

I’m putting the finishing touches on our pop up shop stock which opens on Friday in Brisbane.

The past few days have been spent channelling crystals and putting their messages onto cards or packing boxes full of treasure. I’ve pulled out crystal stock that I’ve had for over twenty years, as well as some stunning new pieces from Tibet, Nepal, Greenland, Iceland, Congo, Afghanistan, Iran and Mexico.

I have Tibetan singing bowls, prayer shawls and an incredible array of tarot and oracle cards – over 300 decks to choose from. Some old favourites but so many new ones. I’ll be on hand all day Friday to advise you about which ones will work best for you, and how to use them. There are journals and jewellery, crystals and talismans, incense and all manner of other delights for your spiritual journey too.

I can’t wait to share them with you!

And then of course there are all of the materials for my two one-day workshops. It’s not too late to join us. I’ll share all the details again, down below. See you soon!

Much love, Nicole  xx

This Crystal Farmer’s Latest Harvest

“Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later.” 
Og Mandino

We harvested crystals on the weekend. They have been out in grids under our magnolia tree and below the massive platform of sticks that is the Eagles’ nest in the old tree down by the river.

The stones had been on the ground so long that grass had grown lush and thick around them. To find them we crept on our hands and knees, parting the grass to find the crystals embedded beneath.

Some of these stones are for the participants in my one-day workshops in Brisbane this weekend, and the rest are for my retreat students.

After six months on the ground, beneath the open sky and cradled gently by the earth, they feel strongly energised – ready to be worked with, meditated with, held.

Our Accelerated Channelling Retreat and Mentorship Program sold out in seven hours, so you’ll be pleased to know that we have secured our favourite venue for February next year to host a second offering of this content. Stay tuned – we’ll be opening up our expressions of interest again soon.

There is still room however if you’d like to join us this weekend. We have a night of channelling and meditation this Friday, followed by two one day workshops. On Saturday we run Foundation Spiritual Practices, and on Sunday it’s our Meditation and Mala Making Workshop. Both of these one-day courses will give you practices you can use to develop your intuitive skills over the next few months, to be ready for our next retreat and mentoring.

Our upcoming Pop Up Shop will open from 10am to 5.30pm on Friday June 29, and from 10am to 4pm on Saturday June 30  and Sunday July 1Come browse our gorgeous range of crystals, singing bowls, prayer shawls, tarot and oracle cards, journals and other tools for self-exploration and spiritual development. There will be free demonstrations on using the singing bowls to clear spaces and your own energies, on how to use oracle and tarot cards, and myself and my team will be on hand to help with your crystal and card selections.

On Friday night I’ll be hosting a Channelling and Guided Meditation Night from 6 to 9pm. I rarely conduct channelling sessions outside my retreats, so this is a very special offering. I’ll be channelling my guides and some fairy friends who’ll be discussing:

  • How to use silence and nature to heal yourself emotionally and physically
  • How to use meditation to increase your emotional resilience and physical immunity
  • How to work with crystals in meditation, for manifestation and for healing and the science behind how crystals interact with us (Some really cool new information here!)
  • Using movement and music to energise you, release energetic and emotional blockages and help manage anxiety and depression.
  • There will also be ample time for questions from the audience.

These nights are always entertaining, educational and often very enlightening. Please bring a plate to share for supper. Tea and coffee will be provided. To book your place please visit our online store or contact Dana at 0438 438 775 or nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com

This Saturday’s Foundation Spiritual Practices one-day workshop will help you wake up your natural psychic and intuitive abilities by developing a strong practice of regular habits to incorporate into your daily life. Whether you are a complete beginner or have been working with your spiritual gifts for years you’ll find tools and techniques here to help accelerate your growth. More importantly, these practices will help you to reclaim your mindfulness, sense of self, inner calm, good decision-making, peace within, and a strong connection to guiding energies.

These are the techniques I used to build my own intuitive and psychic abilities. They are tried and tested with over 35 years of my own personal practice. If you’re busy, stressed, anxious, time-poor and longing for a way back to that safe and tranquil space of connection and communion, or if you’ve gotten out of the habit of regular spiritual practice this is the workshop for you!

We will be learning:

  • What a spiritual Journeymaker is and why it’s time for you to make that journey!
  • How to use tarot and oracle cards to find your own answers and to go deeply into a space that gives you purpose, direction and perspective. (Even if you have NEVER done this before I will have you working confidently within a short space of time!)
  • How to use crystals for deep soul work.
  • How to use journalling as part of your regular spiritual practice – done properly, journalling can open doors in your life you’d never thought possible! I’ll show you how to frame your questions, how to spiritually connect and how to go deeper to create a sacred journey of self-enlightenment.
  • How to easily connect with your Guides and Higher Self in meditation, and how to access these energies for direction and guidance.
  • How to give yourself and others energetic healing to revitalise the body, clear blockages and promote physical, emotional and spiritual healing.
  • Creating a sacred space in your home, and the fundamentals of crystal gridding, space clearing and energy work.
  • Some sacred and powerful breathing and energies techniques taught to me by my Aboriginal Aunties that I have never shared before.
  • Some simple quick spiritual rituals to start and end your day connected, balanced and in a good place.

Morning and afternoon tea and a delicious lunch will be provided.

All participants will receive a crystal grid to construct at home and MP3 recordings of our guided meditations after the event so that you can follow along with them at home until you are confident enough to do them by yourself.

Sunday’s Meditation and Mala Making Workshop will teach you all about Mala Beads – what they are, how they work, and how to use them.

You’ll create your own sacred Meditation Mala with a combination of blessed wooden beads and crystals. You’ll learn the prayers and blessings to activate your Mala and to attune it to your own energies. At the end of the day you’ll have a beautiful wearable spiritual tool that suits your personality, energy and style.

You’ll also learn how to use your Meditation Mala. I’ll show you:

  • how to meditate to reach that deep quiet space that everyone talks about but so few people get to
  • how to meditate to manage anxiety, stress and depression
  • how to meditate to create manifesting energies that draw positive energy, situations and relationships to your life
  • how to meditate to send energy and healing to others
  • how to meditate to change habits and build positive new ones
  • how to meditate to build your own intuitive connection and connection to Guides, Ancestors, Angels and God (whomever or whatever you perceive that energy to be)
  • how to meditate to clear and activate your chakras

These are the mala meditation techniques I have used to build my own intuitive and psychic abilities, some of which have been shared with me by Tibetan Buddhist Shamans.

By the end of the day you’ll feel connected, grounded, blissy and fabulous!

Accelerated Channelling Course Update

“Every thought is a creative energy that moves the universe to action.” 
― Réné Gaudett

 

Hi, Lovelies!
I just wanted to let you know that we have been inundated with interest for our 2018 Accelerated Channelling course, mentoring and retreat.

Every place has now been filled and we also have a waiting list for this course. Expressions of Interest and Booking Form submissions are now closed.

We are so excited to be delivering this course, and sharing some of this material for the very first time. I know that many of you felt a strong calling to join us, and I wanted to reassure you that it’s not too late. Although our offering for 2018 is filled, we have some good news.

Currently, we are finalising dates so that we can run this same course again in 2019. Once again we expect this course to sell out very quickly. Those of you who were successful with your EOI but weren’t quick enough submitting your booking form to secure a place will be offered advance placement for next year’s course. We will then release details and an early-bird booking opportunity just as soon as we have all the details locked in.

If you wanted to apply this year but felt you weren’t quite ready I recommend you attend either of my one-day workshops that will be held in Brisbane at the end of this month. Foundation Spiritual Practices workshop on June 30 will give you the foundation skills you need to build a regular spiritual and energetic practice to prepare you for retreat. Making and Using Meditation Mala Beads on July 1 will help you to use meditation as a tool for developing your psychic and intuitive connection and is a logical step for those of you who are yearning for a deeper connection with self, Guides and God. Details on both of these courses are available here.

And of course if you want to see channelling in action come join me in Brisbane on Friday night, June 29 for an evening with me and my Guides. Details here.

Much love, Nicole  xx

 

 

 

How To Charge Your Crystals Tonight!

“The full moon – the mandala of the sky.”

~Tom Robbins

 

Tonight, May 29 2018, is a full moon.

Ordinarily, I’d suggest that you place your crystals out on the earth to be charged up by the energy of the moon and by the grounding and cleansing effect of the stones being in contact with the earth. But right now our world is being bombarded by positive ions from the numerous solar flares that the sun is emitting. These particles fall to Earth and render the crust of the planet positively charged instead of the usual negative ionic field. That means your crystals won’t be able to be effectively grounded and cleared, although they will still be able to be charged by the moon.

So, what can you do?

It’s the perfect time to place Celestite, Angelite, Apophyllite, Smoky Quartz, Amethyst or Clear Quartz stones on the Earth. Cleanse them first by smudging them or using sound (such as a Tibetan Bell or Bowl).

Photo Credit: @DoD News, Flickr

Then place the stones directly in contact with the ground. The stones will gain a strong charge that will promote psychic attunement and growth, but they will lack any grounding energies. Leave out overnight. These stones can then be used by you in meditation to more easily connect energetically to your Higher Self, Guides and Angels. They will also be incredible stones for working with your dreams. Wrap the stones in a dark cloth when not in use.

If you want to be able to ground and cleanse your other crystals tonight don’t place them directly on the earth. Instead take a timber, clay or ceramic bowl (don’t use plastic, glass or metal) from your kitchen and line the bottom of the bowl with dried rice and then place the stones on top of the rice.

The rice still holds a negative charge and the energies of earthing.  Put the bowl outside on a bench or other elevated position so that is not in contact with the ground. Leave overnight as usual. When you bring the stones back inside discard the rice.

Need some extra support around these Solar Flares? You might find this post helpful.

Thinking of you all and sending so much love, Nicole ❤ xx
