One last cup of tea before Retreat!

“There are two things we should always be 1. raw and 2. ready. When you are raw, you are always ready and when you are ready you usually realize that you are raw. Waiting for perfection is not an answer, one cannot say “I will be ready when I am perfect” because then you will never be ready, rather one must say “I am raw and I am ready just like this right now, how and who I am.” 
C. JoyBell C.

Today marks the start of our Advanced Channelling and Sacred Geometry Residential Retreat.

The ute is packed with box upon box of crystals, oracle cards, student bags, essential oils, art materials, journals, singing bowls and other goodies.

Two more loads of boxes stand ready to be ferried to our venue too.

The fire is blazing, it’s a frosty morning, my meditation is finished and I’m sitting here in the quiet, two sleepy dogs at my feet, drinking tea and savouring a last few moments of slow before 6 intense days of work.

I’m excited. I’m a little bit nervous, like I always am before a big event. My head is still full of all the other bits of life outside the retreat too. There is plenty going on for our family right now. Plenty going on with work. With the farm. With some of my students and clients. And that won’t stop just because we are going into lock-down at Retreat.

But as I sip my tea I also know that it will all be fine. That this will be a week of breakthroughs. That magic will happen.

We have a new moon and a partial solar eclipse to work with. We’re supported right now to make deep connection, to let go of the old, to get clarity about new directions and who we are growing to become.

Over the next few days I’ll share some simple exercises here so you can take advantage of these energies too, even though you can’t be with us this time.

Okay, time to stoke the fire, make a little breakfast and then pack my own bags. (I’m notorious for turning up at retreat without undies or pyjamas or any of the other things you need outside working hours because I’ve been so focused on everyone else!)

Meanwhile the black cockatoos are circling overhead, calling to me. I KNOW this Retreat is going to be huge!

Hugs and 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

 

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.

Bookings Essential!

Cost: $330 adults, $220 children under 17 See below for VIP Options Book and pay directly through our Store here on the blog or contact Dana on 0438 438 775 or at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com 

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!

Morning and afternoon tea, and lunch will be provided.

Why You Need To Stop Fighting How You Feel Right Now!

“Sometimes you need to sit lonely on the floor in a quiet room in order to hear your own voice and not let it drown in the noise of others.” 
Charlotte Eriksson

Hi, Lovelies!

The energies of these past few days and the ones that follow – through until late this week – are turbulent, unstable and unsettling.

Please don’t think you’re going crazy. It will all settle in time, and by the time it settles shift will have occurred.

Meanwhile, expect big swings in mood. Expect highs and lows. Expect fluctuations in your energy levels. Expect to feel confident one minute and insecure the next, motivated and then filled with procrastination, clear and then confused.

Don’t fight it. Don’t push to do or be when you are not in a space aligned with that energy. Fighting our feelings and denying them closes down our intuition and inner voice. That’s the gift of this turbulence – it’s opening us up to heightened levels of energetic sensitivity.

Pay attention to what comes up for you. There are big clues this week about what is working, where your soul yearns to be, and what in your life is out of alignment with your deeper truth.

For some of you who are deeply empathic and intuitive you’ll find the next few days tough. You may even feel physically unsettled, restless, nauseous or otherwise unwell. Do your best to ride it out. Stay well hydrated, rest, use grounding essential oils such as Frankincense, Sandalwood, Vetiver and Lavender. Withdraw from the world for a while if it’s easier. Meditation is also a good coping tool.

Soon enough stability will return, and from that place you’ll find you have new perspectives, clarity and an openness to new possibilities. Until then flow with it all, rising and falling like the tide.

Be gentle with yourself, and with each other.  Change is coming, and it’s needed and good.

Much love to you, 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

Never Off Duty – My Latest Strange Psychic Experience!

“Not everything we experience can be explained by logic or science.” 
Linda Westphal

I didn’t blog yesterday because I was sleeping in.

I was sleeping in because I’d been up half the night.

There was a reason for that, though. One that extends beyond my current flu and health issues that have been keeping me up.

I’m sleeping in our guest room right now so I don’t infect Ben or wake him with my constant tossing and turning. Somewhere around 2am, as I lay in a deep sleep, our smoke detector went off, shrilling loudly just outside my door. I woke in fright, jumped up, turned on all the lights and ran from room to room looking for the fire. My eyes were all hazy, or the house was filled with smoke. I couldn’t tell.

As I panted from the exertion of running with the flu, madly opening every door in our home to find nothing, the alarm stopped. My vision was still hazy. The waving hand in front of my face a blur. But I couldn’t smell smoke or see flames. It was a false alarm and maybe my eyes were just gummed up from the flu. I hauled myself back to bed, amazed that the alarm hadn’t woken Ben. (It had. He heard me running around and figured I’d wake him if there was a fire, so after a few minutes he rolled over and went back to sleep. That man is unflappable!)

No sooner had I closed my eyes than my phone started to beep. Beep beep beep. Beep beep beep, it called incessantly.

‘Shut up, Siri!’ I croaked as I reached for my phone, which promptly stopped beeping before I could do anything.

A woman I know came to mind. Anna. (*I’ve changed her name here for privacy purposes) Anna lives in another part of Australia with her son who is at university. I became convinced that Anna’s house was on fire. I got up again and rifled through my filing cabinet looking for her contact details. When I couldn’t find them I hacked my personal assistant’s work email and looked for Anna’s contact details there. No luck. Finally, I found her phone number in an old facebook message. Less than ten minutes had elapsed since our home smoke alarm had gone off.

I called Anna. No answer. I called again and again. Nothing. Then I used Facebook video to call her and this time she answered, groggy with sleep and confused.

‘Hello, Anna,’ I said. ‘It’s Nicole Cody. I’m so sorry to bother you in the middle of the night but I think your house might be on fire. Can you please check for me?’

She nodded a yes, got out of bed and made her way through darkened corridors. At the opposite end of the old house, she lives in was her son’s room.

She opened the door and there was the fire. His laptop had set his mattress alight and the curtains were ablaze too. Anna began to scream and dropped the phone.

As I was working out what to do next a next-door-neighbour appeared with a fire blanket and extinguisher. He’d been woken by Anna’s screams, smelled smoke and seen the flames from his own bedroom window and come rushing over. Meanwhile, his wife had called the fire brigade.

Anna called me back a few hours later. The fire was out and the bedroom was damaged but everyone was safe.

Anna was widowed last year and isn’t coping well. When the batteries on her old smoke alarm died she didn’t bother to replace them. That’s something her husband would have done. She has also been relying on alcohol and sleeping tablets to get to sleep each night. Her son was out with friends. If I hadn’t called she would have kept sleeping.

So, that’s why I didn’t blog yesterday. I was busy sleeping off my stressful night. This is how my life always is. No matter where I am, no matter the state of my health or the hour of the day my psychic switch is always on and I’m always on duty. Who made my smoke alarm go off, or my phone beep? I’ll never know, but I’m extremely grateful.

It’s a strange life I live, but a fulfilling one.
Holding you all in my prayers and meditations, Nicole ❤ xx

Maybe It’s Time To Be More Fully You…

“Don’t compromise yourself – you’re all you have.” 
~  John Grisham

 

Be yourself. Be authentic.

It’s what everyone tells you.

In fact it’s totally hip to be authentic.

But how far should you go?

I’m creating a new website right now. My old one is awful – a static site I can’t change after my previous developers decided it wasn’t cool to have my ‘weird psychic self’ site come up first in searches for their company name at a time when they were heavily investing in representing large government departments and corporations. They gave me 24 hours to find a new host and booted me off so that they’d no longer be associated with me, because how embarrassing for them!

And this blog was never meant to be my main gig.

I’ve put off this whole new website thing anyway. It seemed a bit pointless to spend the money if I was going to croak it, which is a place I’ve danced around for years. My business is successful despite my awful website and total lack of branding.

But as my business is growing I need a website with functionality. Regardless of my varying health status, I’d rather have a new website. So last year I began this journey of ‘rebranding’. It’s a funny thing, building a website around yourself. You need to be able to say who you are, and to put that clearly out into the world.

I spoke to some trusted business colleagues and mentors first. People who are experts in the whole personal branding thing. People I know and care about.

Well, they all asked me, what is it that you do? You’ve got to be authentic and put that out there so others can find you.

Great, I said. I’m a psychic who…

No! You can’t say that, they all interrupted me.

Every single one of them advised me not to call myself a psychic. Psychics are strange and fluffy and lack credibility and are often just bogus. Also, I’ll alienate the whole Christian market, which is big, apparently. Especially in America. In fact some of my marketing friends told me that being a psychic is maybe not Christian and might also be that other thing. The Satan thing. Being a psychic is not cool. If anything it’s an affliction. Maybe I could call myself something else instead? Intuitive’s cool. Why not be intuitive?

Also, they advised me, just pick one thing. Don’t water down your message.

Okay. Great. Which one thing should I pick? I’ve got a rich and complex life happening here.

I’ve never been one of the ‘hip’ crowd. All the stuff I love is either so old or so out there that I am invisible, way at the front end of trends or following far behind. I trusted these people. So I spent all of last year trying to simplify myself and find less offensive words to describe myself.

Image from Australian Museum

Meanwhile I was also working on my memoir, which is now in its final draft stages. And of course my memoir is all about a period in my life where I am going through this profound psychic awakening and needing to come to terms with that. You know some of that story already – from the time where I lived in the Kimberley and was helped by my Aboriginal Aunties.

I recently gave my draft to a few people to read. My well-meaning writing friends and business colleagues told me to tone it down. But all my tribe, the ones who get me, told me to ramp it up. To include more of me and my weirdness, not less.

The more I work on polishing up my memoir the more I see that my tribe are right. Thanks to all of you I’ve decided that I just can’t do it. I can’t pretend to be a watered-down version of myself just to make other people feel more comfortable. If I can’t be myself, how can I ever ask that of you?

I guess it’s because we all worry about being judged, rejected or ridiculed if we show our true selves – warts and all.

Here on my blog I am always myself. I don’t hide anything. I have shared it all – the psychic stuff, the health stuff, the ins and outs of my life. And you guys have come and stayed. Thank you.

I promise you I’ll keep being myself. I’ll just do it bigger, and with a website that can support me to support you better in your own journeys.

I’m not just intuitive. I’m psychic. And I won’t be ashamed of that or hide that anymore. It’s my truth.

What’s your truth? What are you hiding or diminishing within you for fear of being judged?

I promise you that the people who will ‘get’ you, and who are the ones worth hanging out with, will be eager for you to just be yourself. If you have to change yourself or hide yourself you’re running with the wrong crowd.

The world desperately needs more authenticity. Not the hip kind. The unhip kind. The kind that allows us to be ourselves despite that self not looking like what marketers, magazines or social media tells us we need to be.

Will you join me in just being yourself?

Hi, I’m Nicole. I’m a psychic, channel, metaphysical teacher and mentor, a business coach, a blogger who loves to cook, a late-stage Lyme warrior who often lives in pyjamas and who favours gumboots and slippers for footwear ( although gumboots are better for dancing on the farm), and a writer who can’t stop writing, reading and acquiring more books.

How about you? I’d love to get to know you more. Feel free to drop me a comment below, or come visit me on facebook. Be yourself, and know I’ll love you for it!

Biggest hugs, Nicole  xx

Last One Standing

“Each young person is a poet of sorts, trying to sort out the poetics of their inner life and its relation to the great world around it. Each elder is a philosopher of sorts, trying to sort out the meanings and gleanings of a life as well as the necessary implications of the presence of death.” 
Michael Meade

Many years ago, when I was in my mid-twenties, I hosted a channelling evening at my house. My sister was there, and an Aboriginal friend of ours, her mum and another Aboriginal woman who was a school teacher, and another friend who was staying with us at the time. Me, Simone, Vynette, Leanna, Liz, Tara. Six women of varying ages, sitting in circle on our lounge room floor.

I was nervous because it was one of the first times I had channelled in public, even though they were my friends. But they were very supportive, and so I closed my eyes, settled into meditation and began…

Afterwards we shared cups of tea and a lovely supper spread around my kitchen table. Leanna always brought enough food to feed an army. It’s those Aboriginal values around family and food and love. And of course I am a country girl at heart who always has well-stocked biscuit and cake tins in case visitors arrive.

I never thought anything more of that night until months later. On a crackling international phone line a woman spoke to me from America. Unbeknownst to me Leanna had taped my channelling session and posted it to a friend. Who had shared it with another friend. Finally it had arrived at this woman’s house, a farmhouse in the mid-west, and now she was inviting me to join her group of Elders.

I was the youngest by thirty-three years.

We met by teleconference, and also in meditation. We even shared emails. It became a very important group to me, one I learned much from, and one where we did regular energetic work together for the world. Just a bunch of old people at home, working magic. I was very ill back then so I had the life of an old person too. I fit right in.

In the early hours of this morning I spoke with the last member of the group. There had been twenty-eight of us, but slowly our numbers have dwindled. Last Thursday Kaya died in her sleep. Then there was only two. I spoke with Connie this morning. She is blind now, and going into care. She has cancer too and this part of the road will be short. She is done.

I am the last one standing.

I had a little cry. A big one actually. And then I rallied. It’s my turn now. My turn to repopulate the group. This is how it always is. I was young once, and now I am aging. I have wisdom and teachings of my own to share, and I am the custodian of more that have been shared with me.

That’s the cycle of life, and I am ready.

I’ll keep you posted. Much love, Nicole  xx
