Calling All Lightworkers – Breathe in Pain, Breathe out Peace

2016-04-20-16-43-56

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”
― Martin Luther King Jr

 

Have you been feeling unsettled or agitated? Have you felt overwhelmed with world events or climactic ones? Are there problems closer to home causing you distress?

At times it is easy to feel small and insignificant – unable to help when all we feel in our hearts is an urge to try. Whether it is pain and illness in our family, or troubles within the environment or the wider world, we can often feel powerless to do anything meaningful.

But there is something we can do. Meditate!

Right now, one of the most helpful things that you can do as a Lightworker is to anchor love, light and positive intent in the world.

Tonglen is Tibetan for ‘giving and receiving’ and it is a beautiful and simple meditation practice than anyone can do, with no experience.  What matters is your intent.

Sit or lie quietly, and close your eyes. I like to sit with my spine straight, and my hands together in my lap, thumb tips pressed lightly together. If I’m lying in bed, I lie on my back with my hands crossed together over my heart. Try to sit if you can, but for those of you unwell or unable to do so, a prone meditation practice will still work.

Start by imagining someone who you want to help. It might be a friend with depression.  You breathe in the heaviness of their energy and suffering and breathe out joy and peace, or whatever other energy you feel would bring them comfort.

All you ever have to do is ‘breathe in’ the condition, emotion or suffering of another, making room for healing and comfort within them.  Then ‘breathe out’ positive energy, love and light to fill the space you have created.

The suffering of others is also our own suffering, so this meditation can help us as we endeavour to help others.  If you are in pain, breathe in your own pain and also the pain of everyone who is suffering from your affliction.  Breathe out relief to everyone, in whatever form feels most right to you.

Do not worry that the things you breathe in will become a part of you, further weighing you down. As you breathe in suffering it is transmuted back into light, and it dissipates harmlessly.

Sometimes you may not even have a word for what you are breathing it – it will simply be a feeling, a weightiness, a blackness or even a void.  Breathe out hope, lightness, joy and well-being.  Breathe out ease.

At times when we don’t know what else to do, this suffices. As you bring peace to others, you bring it also to yourself.  It is a very soothing and calming practice.  You don’t need to belong to any particular religion, or follow any particular spiritual philosophy.  This simple practice merely acknowledges that we are all human, all connected, and all the same – no matter who we are, or where we come from.

His Holiness, the Dalai Lama says of Tonglen:

“Whether this meditation really helps others or not, it gives me peace of mind. Then I can be more effective, and the benefit is immense.”

In addition to meditation, here are some simple additional things you might like to try:

  • Treat yourself kindly and with care. Get enough sleep, eat well, and find things to be grateful for in your daily life.
  • Reach out to others with a spirit of friendship and compassion.
  • Spend time in nature, resting and reinvigorating your soul.
  • Don’t contribute to gossip, hurtful or negative talk, or sharing negative views or images on social media.
  • Spend time with your loved ones, and enjoy the company of your family and friends. Laugh together, and make good memories.
  • Read uplifting and nourishing books – both fiction and non-fiction.
  • Grow food or flowers.
  • Use your shopping dollars to support products, services and enterprises who contribute positively and responsibly to the environment and community.
  • Speak kindly to yourself and others.
  • Choose to remain positive and optimistic about the future. Anchor that energy of hope. Be inspirational to those around you.
  • Live life lovingly and to the best of your ability.
  • Follow your own joy. Create, dream, travel, start the project or business you’ve been thinking about for so long, connect, be yourself, learn something new, teach something you know, be the change.
  • Know that your life matters, your ideas matter, you matter!

Together, we can make a difference. Together, we might just change the world.

Sending so much love to you.

Thanks for sharing the journey with me!

Full Moon Meditation and Journalling Exercise for Releasing Fear – January 2017

“There is no illusion greater than fear.”
~ Lao Tzu

 

Are you done with fear holding you back and keeping you small?

Me too.

Fear is the big thing that stops so many of us from living a more fully expressed life. Fear limits us. It stops us from being ourselves. It stops us from taking risks, from starting, from trying, from becoming. Tonight’s full moon brings favourable energies to help us move past fear and into connection with our authentic selves. From that place of truth we can then dream a new life, a new self, a new future into being. This is perfect timing as we sit in the first month of the first cycle of a whole new energetic era!

For the next four days we’ll be influenced by the Full Moon in Cancer. This moon supports us as we travel into and through our deepest fears and insecurities. It’s a time for exploring and owning what has been repressed, forgotten or shoved to one side in our lives. It’ a time for naming and letting go of these old beliefs and behaviours. It’s a great time to facilitate a gathering awareness of our truth and a strengthening sense of wholeness for ourselves.

Wholeness centers us. It returns flow, hope, strength and inspiration to our lives. We need more of that in the world right now. As you move from fear back into flow you hold a strong and stable vibration that will exert a positive energetic influence on the world around you. So, thank you for doing this! Your participation means so much to me. ❤

The following meditation and journalling exercises can be done at any time over the next four days, while the influence of the moon is at her strongest.

Let’s Begin!

Choosing a Crystal

You may wish to choose a crystal to work with this while you journal. It is entirely optional, and you’d be fine without one too – but for my fellow rock lovers, read on…

(If you’re working with my Year of ME Planner, please choose a different stone to your 2017 Gratitude Crystal! – You could use your citrine or chrysocolla stone though. )

You can hold this crystal as you write or meditate, place it under your pillow or beside your bed while you sleep, or carry it in your pocket to help you stay focused.

You could choose your stone based on what most appeals to you. That’s a very valid approach. But if you need a little direction, good crystals to work with this week include:

  • Clear Quartz or Quartz with Inclusions or Phantoms
  • Citrine
  • Smoky Quartz
  • Hematite
  • Fluorite
  • Amethyst
  • Tiger Iron
  • Chrysocolla
  • Petrified Wood

Here’s what I’ll be using – it’s a natural Smoky Quartz and Citrine Phantom with Barite inclusions. Feel free to let us know what kind of crystal you choose by leaving a comment below or over at our facebook page or on Instagram.

Preparatory Meditation:

We can’t think, or be in flow, if we are stressed and uptight. Before you begin to reflect on and journal your exploratory questions, take a minute or two to perform this simple meditation.

Belly Breathing Technique

Before you begin writing, sit or lie quietly. Place your crystal in one hand and then put that hand over your heart. Place your other hand low on your abdomen. Close your eyes if it feels comfortable to do so.

Feel for the moon. It doesn’t matter if it is day or night when you do this. The full moon’s energy is strong. Draw this energy down and imagine the moon’s energy wrapping around you like a silvery cloak. Let this energy calm, nurture and hold you.

Now take 6 deep breaths.

For each breath, when you inhale focus on your belly rising out further than your chest.

Take 6 long, slow and unforced breaths, gently allowing your hands to rise and fall with your chest and belly.

You’ll feel your body relax and unwind. You can breathe normally after six breaths or do another cycle of six.

Visualise a colour in your crystal, or if you are just using your hands, visualise a colour in the palm of your hand above your heart. Breathe in to activate your hands and let that colour expand, so that it links both of your hands. You’ll now have a glow of coloured energy sitting from your throat to your groin. That light is healing and energising. Don’t think about it too much. Just let it be there in the background.

Now take 6 more long, slow and unforced breaths, gently allowing your hands to rise and fall with your chest and belly. Feel all of the tension drain away. Feel yourself open to your intuition and to the moon’s guidance.

When you’re ready open you eyes, still feeling your connection to your crystal and the moon.

Now you’re ready to write!

Journal Questions:

Write the answers to your questions on loose sheets of paper, or paper that can be easily removed from a book or notepad. At the end of this activity you will burn these sheets to complete the meditation and release ritual.

If you are working on a computer or tablet, you will need to delete the file. (Or print, delete file and then burn pages!)

You can choose any or all of the questions below. Write as much or as little as you need. It could be three words or three pages. Spread it out over a few days, or spend a solid hour or two over one day – it’s up to you! If you’re in flow, keep going and see where it takes you. Be brave, and write from your heart. Let all your fear, worry and insecurity fall onto the page as you write.The idea is to get to out of your head, and out of your body and onto the page.

If you’re using a crystal, hold it in your non-writing hand, or place it in your lap or pocket.

 

If you don’t know how to answer something, ask yourself What am I resisting here? What can this teach me about myself? And then be brave and go deeper. Breathe into it. Keep writing.

When you have finished, and there is no more to say about that question, write I now release these fears and limiting thoughts. With the Moon as my witness I move back into flow. I open myself to new and better possibilities. Then sign your name. Do this for each question that you answer.

Questions:

  1. When I think about money, and being able to support myself, my fear is that…
  2. When I think about my health, and living with vitality, my fear is that…
  3. When I think about my sexuality, and about taking pleasure in my body, my fear is that…
  4. When I think about my family, my fear is that…
  5. When I think about love relationships my fear is that…
  6. When I think about my partner, my fear is that…
  7. When I think about my art, my fear is that…
  8. When I think about my home and my living space, my fear is that…
  9. When I think about travel, my fear is that…
  10. When I think about my career, my fear is that…
  11. When I think about my business, my fear is that…
  12. When I think about friendship, my fear is that…
  13. When I think about what others think of me, and how they may perceive me, my fear is that…
  14. When I think about my personal appearance, my fear is that…
  15. When I think about who I could become, my fear is that…
  16. When I think about this idea I have, my fear is that…
  17. When I think about my country, my fear is that…
  18. When I think about the environment, my fear is that…
  19. When I think about world events, my fear is that…
  20. When I think about the future, my fear is that…

When you are done, sit for a moment and close your eyes. Place one hand back on your heart and one low on your belly. Breathe in and out six times, being aware of the rise and fall of your chest and belly, being aware of the radiating colour that links your hands. Feel yourself connected to the moon and to a place of deep calm.

Open your eyes.

In your own time, and in a way that is safe for yourself and for those around you, burn your pages. You could do this outside, or over a barbeque, fireplace or in a large heatproof pot or bowl. Let the flames render your fears into ash. Let the ash be scattered on the winds, or washed down the drain and returned to the earth. You are done with it. It’s time to move on.

Keep being aware of your breath. Be aware of the energy in your hands. Be aware of the moon above you. Be aware of this new energy of calm and possibility you carry with you. You can use the crystal you have carried through this process as a reminder and talisman – linking you into this place of calm and flow.

Thank you for participating.

Thank you for being part of the positive change in our world.

Much love and hugs, Nicole ❤ xx

After Meditation, Beach!

“hark, now hear the sailors cry,
smell the sea, and feel the sky
let your soul & spirit fly, into the mystic…”
~ Van Morrison

 

So, my lovelies, I meditated at the crystal grid until 2am for all of us.

A huge effort, and this morning I am thoroughly exhausted. But happy.

So now we are off to the beach with Cafe Dog, for a walk and a cleansing swim.

After which I intend to come home and nap all day to integrate these new energies and to recover from the efforts of the past few weeks.

Sending so much love to you, as you move towards your Highest Potential,

A New Moon Guided Meditation for Our Highest Potential – December 2016

“The chief beauty about time
is that you cannot waste it in advance.
The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you,
as perfect, as unspoiled,
as if you had never wasted or misapplied
a single moment in all your life.
You can turn over a new leaf every hour
if you choose.”
~ Arnold Bennett

 

Today, Thursday December 29 heralds the new moon. This moon closes the door not only on 2016, but on the entire thousands-of-years-old patriarchal energetic cycle that began its conclusion in 2012. This new moon welcomes in an entirely new energetic era – one of balanced masculine and feminine energy, one of hope and compassion, one of community, connection, information and advancement. It is my belief that you have chosen to be alive at this time as we straddle two worlds, the old and the new.

Tonight’s new moon brings a powerful energy for creating positive change and manifesting your heart’s desires. It is also a great time for connecting into your own intuitive wisdom, and deepening spiritual connection.

Everything is created first in the zero-point field, that place of potent emptiness that resides as the spaces between the fabric of existence.  The New Moon is potently linked to this space of possibility, where our thoughts and intents begin to shape matter itself into our new reality.

Tonight’s new moon also offers us something extra. It’s a moon that supports us being attuned to our highest potential for this lifetime and an opportunity for us to leave the past behind and to truly embrace a positive future.

Tonight I will be holding space in my personal meditation for you as I sit with our Ancestors and Songlines crystal grid here at my farm. I will be intending that you move into your heart-space, and reconnect with your own Soul Wisdom. I will be intending that your feet find their way in 2017. That your path becomes clear. That you can more easily be yourself. That you know and express yourself truly. That you live life to your highest potential. That you are loved for who you are. That you come to know how much you are loved.

There are 2023 individually dedicated stones within my grid. If you have contacted me via my blog or social media, then your name is here.

Note: For those of you who contacted me after yesterday’s cutoff time, I am adding your name to one large crystal that will anchor energy and intention for you all.

2016-12-28-19-15-37

 

Perform Your Own New Moon Ritual

I’ve also created a simple guided meditation and a series of rituals to help anchor your own intentions using the transformational forces of the moon as she moves from this place of darkness back into light.

You can do any or all of these simple practices, and you can do them today or any time in the next three days, up until January 1, 2017.

You’ll need this simple preparation:

  • choose a crystal or stone to hold in meditation
  • choose a  second stone or crystal to return to the earth after the meditation
  • have a glass of water ready
  • have a journal and a pen

 

Journal First:

Some time today, or before your meditation tonight, take your journal and write a letter to the Universe outlining what you intend to leave behind in the past.

This could be behaviours, attitudes, situations, relationships or any other thing that weighs you down or makes you feel bad within yourself.

Start with the words ‘I now release…’ and then add your list. When your letter to the Universe is finished sign it with the words ‘And it is so.” Then sign your name and add the date.

Begin again on a new page.

Sit in reflection, and then write down what you want to have, create or do, especially those things where you have previously been blocked by fear or insecurity.

Words that can be useful to help strengthen that state of creating or manifesting include the action words: claim, invoke, manifest, intend, believe, draw to me, welcome into my life, create, become, do, transform, embrace, love, adore, cherish, make, construct, transform.

Write a second letter to the Universe, beginning with the words, ‘As I step into my Highest Potential…’

Then list the things you wish to have, create or do. Be as broad or specific as feels right for you. Conclude your letter with the words. ‘I claim this and more, for my Highest Good. And it is so.’ Then sign your name and date it.

Keep your pages somewhere safe, although there is no need to read them again unless you are drawn to do so.

Standing Meditation for Clearing, Shifting and Healing your Psychic Self

This Meditation will ground you, as it opens you up to more of your own natural energetic and psychic ability.  It is very comforting for people who spend most of their day indoors, or in front of a computer.

Note: You will need your glass of water for this meditation.

  1. Find a place outside where you can comfortably stand barefoot on the skin of the earth.  If this is impossible in your climate then stand barefoot at a window or on timber floorboards. Find a place where you can do this without interruption.  It is up to you what time of the day you complete your practice.
  2. Drink half a glass of water.
  3. Then stand barefoot on the earth (or in your chosen place) with your face turned toward the sun (or the moon if you do this at night).
  4. Close your eyes.  Draw in sunlight through your heart chakra, or if it is night, draw in moonlight through your third eye.  If it’s cloudy, draw clouds and wind and rain and all those other elements into your belly via your sacral chakra (the second one up, three finger widths below your belly button. Do this for two to five minutes.  Let your body be energised, balanced and healed by the gifts of nature.
  5. When you’re finished, drink the rest of the glass of water.

Expect to feel different in the days to come.  Expect to be shown things in dreams, to become more perceptive and intuitive.  If you want to work with energy or psychic skills, expect them to become stronger and clearer.

Even if you do not want to choose a life path that is more actively spiritually and psychically connected, you will become more emotionally open, more energised, and more naturally intuitive.

Thank you, for working on your own self growth. Every time we do, it lifts the energy of Mass Consciousness.  Every time we clear and shift old energies, it makes its easier for ourselves and everyone else to become more open to our Soul Truth.

 

Simple Guided Meditation for Stepping Into Your Highest Potential

I’ve recorded a fifteen minute guided meditation for working with this new moon. You can use this meditation on any evening from tonight up until January 1, 2017, or on any future new moon to come to help keep you connected into this energetic support.

I’ll be starting my own meditation at 8pm AEST, if you’d like to tune in around that time, but I also love the idea of a wave of meditation across the world. Take a moment to tune into my crystal grid, and the central rose quartz stone. Send it a little love, light and positive intention. Feel that intention radiate back out into the world, amplified.

2016-12-16-17-01-50

Before you begin the meditation, make sure that you have two stones or crystals – one to keep for yourself and one to gift back to the earth.

When you’re ready, just click play:

After your meditation is concluded you may want to hold your personal crystal and journal any insights that have come during your meditation, or that come after. Use this personal crystal any time you want to quickly connect back into this awareness of your connection and highest potential. It is a great meditation and journalling aid.

In your own time take the second stone and return it to nature. As you place it on the ground, or cast it into a river, lake or ocean, visualise the stone anchoring light, truth peace and hope. See it as a small beacon of light that is rippling out the energies of Highest Potential all over the world.

See yourself in the same way.

Thank you for being part of the closing ceremonies of the old energetic era, and for being part of the positive shift for humanity.

Holding you in my intentions, prayers and meditation,

Nicole ❤ xoxo

Accidents and Sudden Deaths – My thoughts from a psychic perspective

“Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow.

I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
I am that swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft star that shines at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die.
~ Autumn Rain – Mary Frye, 1932

 

This is the next post in my Wednesday series on death and dying.

Many people have asked me what happens to a person if they have a sudden death through accident or illness.

I’ve sat holding the hand of people who’ve been suddenly and gravely injured and who have then passed away.

I’ve also been ‘visited’ psychically by souls whose life has suddenly terminated due to trauma, or I have connected with them through my meditations.

One of the strongest psychic experiences I have ever had was of sitting in my friend’s body and being aware of his thoughts in the hours before and after his death from suicide. Although that remains the most brutal experience I have had, it was also a supreme gift.

This is what I have come to understand…

Death that is sudden is a shock for the soul. We live on, and our capacity for thought and awareness lives on. There is a period after death where the soul must orient themselves to their new circumstances.

This doesn’t always happen the same way.

 

Some people die in trauma and there is a short period of nothingness – as if someone wiped part of a video. In this way the soul is spared the traumatic memories. There will be no trauma to process even if the circumstances of death were difficult. Sometimes the soul abandons the mortally injured body before death takes place. There is no suffering. Life just stops. In every instance the newly liberated soul is met and guided by loved ones who help to move the soul to a place of love and comfort. Later the soul may revisit their body or the scene of their death, but by then they will have disconnected from their life to an extent that the revisiting adds no trauma, only understanding and closure for the life they have just lived.

Some people die, and don’t immediately realise that they are dead. They may look down on themselves and be completely disoriented and confused. There is no physical pain. I liken this situation to when you awaken from a dream and are not sure where you are for a moment. Then gradually understanding comes as you orient yourself to the room you are in. This may take minutes or hours. There is never a situation of being trapped in the body, or trapped on earth. Instead there is a period of readjustment before the soul accepts their death and moves to wherever it is we go after this current life journey is complete. And wherever that is, it is ALWAYS a return to love.

My friend who suicided realised too late that he had acted from emotion in making the decision to end his life, and that he didn’t want to die. He was still alive when that realisation came but it was impossible to change his outcome. In the moments before death he experienced extreme regret and sorrow, and a deep awareness of the trauma he would now inflict on his family. After death he came to a place of deep love and acceptance for himself and his life. That was his gift to me. He showed me and allowed me to feel that love. I have never experienced anything as comforting or all-encompassing as that place of unconditional love his soul moved into after death.

Souls don’t remain trapped on earth, or stuck in some strange in-between place because of trauma, sudden or violent death. We always return to love.

The true suffering is done here on earth.

The energetic imprint of trauma, violence and suffering can remain in a place, and many psychics and empaths will pick up on that. They can tune into thoughts, emotions and even images that have been imprinted. This energetic residue is NOT a trapped soul. Lightworkers can bear witness to that low vibration energy, and use love and light to dissipate it and heal a space or place if that feels right.

 

Do we always die because it is our time? I would love to say that I am wise enough to know the answer. All I can say here is that while many people do indeed die because whatever experience they needed here is complete, there are instances of accident and mishap that can terminate our lives before we did all we came here to do and experience. Life is fraught with risk. We are biological organisms. It’s a crazy adventure that sometimes goes wrong. I do know that, no matter what happens, we return to love when we die. And everything we experience teaches us something and helps us to grow – either in this life or in our time between lives.

It is important to remember that the ones most affected by sudden death (be it accident, suicide or medical) will be those left behind in life.

 

I also had a question from a reader about organ donation that fits in very well with what we’re talking about here on the blog this morning. Here it is:

“My understanding is that taking organs when the person is brain dead, or just after their heart has stopped beating means their spiritual body hasn’t completely left the physical body yet. I understand that this can cause distress in the next world and maybe even problems when reincarnating with a spiritual body that hasn’t fully healed from having parts taken or damaged. have you had any experiences of this type of thing, or is it something you could enquire into? My only personal experience is living in a building where they did experiments on human eyeballs in the basement. I’m not scared of ghosts usually, but the corridor by the basement always seemed to be teeming with unhappy souls.”

 

A ghost is an energetic residue. Many empaths and intuitives pick up on strong positive or negative emotional energies that have been imprinted upon objects or places. I believe that the reader who posted this question is highly empathic and intuitive, and hence their ability to tune into old energies held within the building where they lived.

When organs are taken from a donor, the person is already brain-dead or their heart has stopped beating. There will be no possibility that this person could be brought back to any form of life. Life is sometimes artificially continued for a short period of time through the use of machines that keep a supply of oxygenated blood flowing through the body. These keeps the organs viable so that the donor’s wish to gift life to others can still take place. The soul of this person will have already detached from their body when the organs are removed.

A soul is never hampered in their journey after death because of what may have happened to their physical body before or after death. A soul would not experience difficulties because part of their physical body continued to exist. That organ serves no purpose for the disembodied soul. We exist as more than just our physical bodies, and we have no need for our physical body after death. Our physical bodies may continue to do good and be of service after our death though, through acts such as organ donation.

Be kind to yourself, and those you meet. We never know what is going on within another, and this is often a hard time of year remembering those we have lost.

Much love to you, Nicole ❤ xx

 

See How Our Grid Has Grown…

2016-12-18-12-49-17

“Think about our bodies. We’re a chain of veins and organs and they’re all interconnected. If something isn’t going right in one area, the whole system can get out of whack. That’s the way I see the world. We’re all connected. I don’t see myself as this separate entity. I see things in a much larger scale. Everything I do directly affects another person, all the way down the chain. Every person I help can help another; we’re all connected. Change happens one person at a time. And I want to commit my life to seeing that through.”
~ Katie Kacvinsky

 

Am I insane?

Maybe.

But I can’t help myself.

 

I conceived this simple project. To create a crystal grid on my property, to help to provide energetic support for us as we shift from the old energy into the new. For support from our ancestors and guides as we shift old family patterns and beliefs that no longer serve us. As we pattern-break for ourselves and our loved ones. I wanted to help support us as we leave 2016, and this age-old cycle of patriarchal energy.

I created this grid to help our feet find our souls’ own songlines as we walk into the new energy. So that we can become part of this great shift of consciousness by being who we came here to be, and doing what we came here to do as we move into 2017 and this dawning new energetic era.

Each stone takes me three minutes to dedicate.

I choose one that feels right for you. I hold it in my hands, I close my eyes, and I offer up my prayer and dedication – that your family line know healing, that you release old patterns, beliefs and relationships that no longer serve you. That you gently and easily let go of anger, guilt, shame, disconnection, old hurts. I pray and intend that your family line returns to a place of love, flow and abundance. That you move into your heart-space, and reconnect with your own Soul Wisdom. I offer up my prayer that your feet find their way in 2017. That your path becomes clear. That you can more easily be yourself. That you know and express yourself truly. That you live life to your highest potential. That you are loved for who you are. That you come to know how much you are loved.

I arrange the stones I have blessed and take a photo, so I can tag the picture on social media. I want you to feel involved and connected. I want you to know that you are not alone – that you matter, and that you are supported.

Then we carry the stones down to the grid, and I place them, one by one.

After which I go back to the computer, and gather more names, and write new lists and the process begins again.

 

There are over 900 stones in the grid now. 900 people, radiating love and positive shift to so many more.

I will be adding more stones to this grid until 12pm on Tuesday 27th December, 2016. (That’s Sydney, Australia time) If you’d like to add your name, please let me know in the comments below.

If you’ve already asked there is no need to ask again. I have you.

There’s another way you can help. You can make your own grid. For details go to the Free Stuff section in my shop, and select the Ancestral Healing Grid Instructions. (And be aware that it may take an hour or so for the information to be emailed after selection of this option.) It’s easy to do, even if you’ve never done something like this before.

Know that I’m thinking of you. Know that I’m holding you in my thoughts and prayers. That I’m holding space for you and your family right now.

I might be crazy, but I think this matters.

I love you, and I wish you well,

*Below are just a few pictures of how this grid has grown. Please be patient if you haven’t seen your name tagged yet on my Instagram and Facebook posts. It all takes time, and there are so many names to tag! You can follow me at both places by searching for Cauldrons and Cupcakes ❤

And another thought. If other middle-aged women are crazy cat ladies, I must be the crazy rock lady. I easily have 1000 stones in my grid now, and I still have plenty left to choose from…

Join Me In Sending Love and Light to Close Out 2016 and Welcome In 2017

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
~ Mahatma Gandhi

“Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”
~ Barack Obama

“They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.”
~ Andy Warhol

 

Here on our farm I’ve made a special healing grid for us,to help close out the energies of 2016 and all of the years before that which were the previous energetic era – the one that stretched all the way back to before the time of Christ.

It’s also to welcome in the new energetic era, and the fresh bright energies of 2017, which actually show up and begin to have an early influence from today – December 17, 2016.

This crystal grid began in a humble way, anchored by an Aboriginal stone club head representing masculine energy, and a selenite fish tail representing feminine energy. Both of those stones were ringed by Cockatoo Dreaming beads (painted seeds). Within that ring were tumbled clear quartz and ruby in fuschite.

Extending out from the beads were a ring of chevron amethyst. Beyond that, natural quartz generator points, tumbled quartz and black tourmaline.

That was the foundation of the grid.

I created the grid for energetic support for us as we shift from the old energy into the new. For support from our ancestors and guides as we shift old family patterns and beliefs that no longer serve us. As we pattern-break for ourselves and our loved ones.

I created this grid to help our feet find our souls’ own songlines so that we can become part of this great shift of consciousness by being who we came here to be, and doing what we came here to do as we move into 2017 and this dawning new energetic era.

The grid is anchored too by the energy of an ancient Crow’s Ash tree, whose boughs the grid sits beneath. Can you feel the energy of this gracious and wise old tree when you tune in to the grid?

Now I have added so many more stones to this grid. Each stone stands for a person, and their family line. Each stone has been chosen and held by me, as I say that person’s name and offer a prayer of dedication that all that no longer serves be cleared from their family line, returning their family to a place of love, flow and abundance. I have asked that this person find their path, and live the life that is their highest potential.

There are over 600 stones in the grid now. 600 people, radiating love and positive shift to so many more.

I will be adding more stones to this grid until 12pm on Tuesday 27th December, 2016. (That’s Sydney, Australia time) If you’d like to add your name, please let me know in the comments below.

If you’ve already asked there is no need to ask again. I have you.

There’s another way you can help. You can make your own grid. For details go to the Free Stuff section in my shop, and select the Ancestral Healing Grid Instructions. (And be aware that it may take an hour or so for the information to be emailed after selection of this option.) It’s easy to do, even if you’ve never done something like this before.

One of our readers, Anke Szillat, also asked if I could add a focus stone to the grid, so that you could focus on that crystal and pour your love into it, to be shared with all other beings as the grid radiates out its energies.

It was such a beautiful suggestion (Thank you, Anke!) so I reworked the grid yesterday to include a massive raw rose quartz crystal as our point of focus. If you think of that stone and send love and light to that stone, or perhaps energetically link that stone to a stone or grid of your own it will help to activate and anchor points of love and light all over the world.

You’ll see the big rose quartz in the photo above. The grid has already changed since we took these pictures, but I’ve been too busy programming and dedicating stones to upload any more yet. I promise to do so in the coming days, including pictures of the rocks I’ve chosen for each person in the grid (with pictures taken of smaller grids and your names added beneath. Check out my Cauldrons and Cupcakes page on Facebook or Instagram for more updates.)

Until the 27th I will add more stones to the grid. The stones will sit under the sky, and be supported by the sun, the moon and stars, the rain and the wind, the good earth and all of the ancient trees. It will be supported by my twice-daily meditations, and by your own thoughts, intentions, meditations and well-wishes.

On the evening of 29 December, 2016, at 8pm Sydney time I will sit in meditation with the grid, to open you up to your highest potential for this lifetime. In this meditation I will ask the Universe, your Guides and Ancestors to help you to find your songline (this is your own personal calling or highest purpose) and soul path in 2017. I will ask that you be given every guidance to help you to make the best choices for yourself and your highest good. I will ask that you be guided to do all that you came here to do, and to be all that you came here to be. I will sit in meditation and hold space for us, our planet, and our unfolding future.

Join me, from wherever you are, any time on the evening of 29 December if you feel to. I’d be so humbled and honoured to have your energy and intention in support with mine. Let’s be the change. Let’s anchor this positive new energy. Let’s create the shift in consciousness in ourselves, and in the healing of our lives, our families and communities.

Thank you, and much love, Nicole ❤ xoxo
