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.

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!

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.

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

2019’s Astrological Events To Awaken and Support Us – Info and Home Study Course


“Everybody has a little bit of the sun and moon in them. Everybody has a little bit of man, woman, and animal in them. Darks and lights in them. Everyone is part of a connected cosmic system. Part earth and sea, wind and fire, with some salt and dust swimming in them. We have a universe within ourselves that mimics the universe outside.”

~ Suzy Kassem

On January 3rd I held my first webinar of the year for my membership group. We discussed the energies of 2019 and how best to use them in our lives, and I also spent time talking about the four-year period (2019 -2022) we have just entered, which is heralded by some incredible astrological events that are happening around us right now and will continue to happen over the next few months.

In response to these events I’ve created a special bundle of four downloadable guided meditations and a 38-page workbook to help you work with and be transformed by the current celestial and cosmic energies. You can access it here now if you’re impatient and don’t feel like reading through to the end of this post.

The Coming Change And How It Can Support You

This four year period is known as The Threshold, and it is being kicked off by a series of astrological events that have already started. I’d like to briefly outline them for you.

January 3 – The Quadrantids Meteor Shower

This meteor shower was most visible over the 3rd and 4th of January, but for the next two months it will be raining microscopic particles down upon us. This shower of golden stardust (literally!) is also the very basis of our own life – we too are made from stardust.

The galactic energy of this meteor shower is awakening something within us. We are beginning to feel both our significance and insignificance in the bigger scheme of the cosmos. That we are here right now is no accident. We are connected to all things, and it is time for us to step into the space of being good ancestors while we are alive and conscious – ensuring the viability of the earth for future generations. We see that our lives matter – that this life and how we live it matters. Not just to us, but for our future selves and for those who will come after us through our family tree.

January 5-6 – Partial Solar Eclipse

This partial Solar Eclipse began the process of activating and rebalancing our Solar Plexus energy. It is waking us out of struggle, helping us to reconnect to flow. It is strengthening our identifty, individuality and resolve. We begin to understand who we are and – most importantly – what we want to contribute in the world and what matters most to us. As the Solar Eclipse asserts its energies we are supported over the next few months to make plans, to start new projects, to build on existing work, and to make changes that will positively affect the course of our life. It heralds the start of a deepening need within us to live in greater alignment with our values, and to live from a place of ethical and spiritual congruency.

January 20 – 21 – Total Lunar Eclipse Supermoon

This eclipse is the ‘Night of the Luminous Soul‘. It gifts us the capacity to become calm warriors in our families and communities. The eclipse heralds energies of courage, clarity, determination, resilience, patience and empathy. We realise that we are not our struggle, and we can choose 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 hope and optimism.

How to Use These Energies in Your Own Life

  1. Spend time in nature, on your own or with a companion animal. Allow yourself to relax and then to connect more deeply into nature. As you relax trust that you will begin to know yourself better, and that the best way forward for your life will begin to present itself to you.
  2. Get outside, wherever you are. Become aware of the sky above you, and of the stars, sun and moon. Become aware of the earth beneath your feet, of the air you breathe, of the food you eat. Be in your body. Be of this world. But, also, feel your soul.
  3. Spend time meditating and journalling, supported by these cosmic energies.

I’ll be blogging about the Supermoon Lunar Eclipse over the next few days with some specific free activities for you to try.

Meanwhile, if you head over to my store, I’ve bundled together four powerful guided downloadable meditations and created a companion workbook to support you as you work with these celestial energies. The Stardust Connection Meditation Bundle will help you to connect with and explore Earth Energies, Ancestor Energies, your Solar Plexus energies and personal power, and the Stardust Energies. There is over an hour’s worth of Guided Meditations and a 38-page workbook.

Learn To Meditate With A Mala!


“If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath.” ~ Amit Ray

Meditation has been my anchor since I was a young girl. It’s my daily go-to, to unwind, to calm my mind, to manage my anxieties, to reduce my stress, to deepen my spiritual connection, to know myself. Over the years meditation has also helped me navigate chronic illness and acute pain. I can’t think of a better way to bring myself back to calm.

I use a range of techniques when I meditate. Just like I have clothes in my wardrobe and I can select what I wear based on how I feel, I can also choose a meditation method, and one of the most accessible and easy meditation methods is using a string of beads called a Mala.

A Mala is a string of 108 beads. They are sometimes known as prayer beads, buddha beads or rosary beads.  Maybe you wear one as jewellery – they’ve become very popular lately, and it seems that every second person has one wrapped around their wrist or hung about their neck. But do you really know how to use one?

(In a hurry to get your Mala and Online Course? Go Here!)
Buy the Mala And Online Course

This is the Mala you will receive – 108 beads plus the Guru and Blessing Bead, all hand-knotted on black cotton and finished with a black cotton tassel.

When I am tired, stressed or overthinking using a mala in meditation gives my fingers something to do and occupies that busy part of my brain so that I can gently come back to a place of calm and peace. I hold each bead in my fingers one by one, and slowly travel each of the 108 beads. I might use my breath, a prayer, a mantra, a visualisation, or something more shamanic. And it transforms me. It soothes me. It heals and reconnects me.

I can’t recommend using a Mala highly enough, especially if you are the type of person who usually struggles with meditation, or who has never been able to do it in a way that has been helpful for you.

Even holding or wearing my Mala brings me peace.

If I am preparing to mentor students or run a retreat I will create a meditation Mala specifically for my group, with each bead representing a student. I chose a different style of bead for each person, one that will be immediately recognisable to my touch. When my fingers find that bead in meditation I can tune in to my student, assess how they are going, and send them healing, energy and direction. When the course is complete I will pull the Mala apart and send my students their personal bead for them to wear or as a talisman and keepsake.

And now I can help you to use a Mala too.

You can learn more about it and order it here in my Store.
Buy the Mala And Online Course

Would you like to buy your Mala knowing that it has been lovingly crafted in a fair-trade environment rather than some sweat-shop or underhanded place where the only motive is maximising profit? Would you prefer to buy and wear your Mala knowing that every bead has been blessed with love, and that the finished Mala has been blessed twice – once in a holy ceremony at a Hindu Temple in India and once in a crystal grid with prayers, meditation and my Tibetan Singing Bowl on my farm here in Byron Bay, Australia?

Would you like to buy your Mala knowing that you’ll be taught how to meditate with it and care for it so that it can do more than just adorn your neck or wrist?

I’ve had my very own meditation Mala designed and made. It feels incredibly soothing to hold or wear. I’ve also created a comprehensive five-day online course that teaches you all about the components of your Mala – what the beads and crystals mean – as well as three specific meditation techniques to help you use your Mala in meaningful ways. This is no light-weight course. I will teach you the things you would learn if you came to a workshop or retreat with me, including hands-on healing and 

This Mala will be a beautiful gift for you, or for someone you love who would benefit from learning meditation. The introductory price for this is just $95 AUD plus postage for both the hand-crafted Mala and the 5 day online course because it’s so important to me that you are supported in your life and on your spiritual journey.
All my love, Nicole ❤ xx

The next four years 2019 – 2022 are significant for our personal and spiritual evolution, as well as for the evolution of our planet.

A Very Special Meditation Mala – available now on pre-order

“Every act of love and kindness raises the vibration of the entire universe.” ~ Anonymous

 

Meditation is my anchor. I have practised meditation daily from the age of eleven. Since my twenties, it has been twice daily. It is the single most transformative thing I have ever incorporated into my life, and it’s a passion of mine.

Every time I run a mala-making workshop or a meditation workshop they sell out fast! I listened when you told me that you wanted to be able to learn to meditate even if you couldn’t come to my classes. So when I was working on the draft of my new YOM (Year of ME) Planner for 2019, I saw a way to help you. Each year I choose crystals to support the energy of every month of the year. For the past two years I have sold these stones in packs when I launched my Planner. But for 2019 I have done something different – I have incorporated each of the stones into a meditation mala. I have also added a lava stone and a clear quartz to the end of the mala. You can use the lava stone as a personal diffuser by adding a drop of your favourite essential oil. The clear quartz can be programmed to hold your intentions for the year ahead.

After I designed the mala, I searched high and low to find someone to make it for me. It was important that the people I worked with were ethical, that the staff were treated well and paid fairly, and that I could trust the integrity of the stones and of the work. I wanted the people making the malas to understand their use, and to respect them as a spiritual tool. Finally, I found a small company in India, and we have worked together tirelessly for months as I have modified my design, sourcing the best crystals from around the world and rudraksha from Nepal, creating the best possible product to support you. Rudraksha are seeds from a holy plant that is sacred to Hinduism and Buddhism.

Each mala has been lovingly made and hand-knotted – all to my design. A blessing is said for each bead as it is placed on the string. The finished malas are then blessed by a Hindu priest in a special ceremony. The blessed malas are on their way to me right now. Finally, the malas will sit in meditation with me at my farm, as I charge them up in a crystal grid and work to attune their energy. Then they will be ready to share with you.

The energies of this special mala are amazing. You can really feel the peace and love held within the mala, and when you wear it you get a sense of safety, calm and love. They are just beautiful. In fact, since I ‘ve been wearing mine people have been stopping me in the street to ask where I bought it from!

I’ve also had this year’s Planner printed at a lovely local family-owned business here in Australia. They are going to be exceptionally good quality, and I’m so proud of our new design and all the extra support features. If you buy a Planner pack (there are lots to choose from) on pre-order you will have access to a range of free bonus online mini-courses as a thank you for supporting this project. The Planner membership packages for 2019 also include twelve free additional mini-courses and live events over the next year as well as the year-long membership and course, and our wonderful private Facebook group.

This is my best offering yet, and I know you are going to absolutely love what we’ve created for you. Make sure to secure your Planner and Mala with a pre-order. They are both in limited supply, and I don’t want you to miss out!

Here’s a sneak peek at the YOM Planner for 2019. (Confession – I have stuck the cover for next year on my existing 2018 Planner for these photos as I only have the unbound proof copy so far!)

And here’s some footage of our glorious malas being made:

It doesn’t get much more authentic than this:

Here they are being Blessed:

Biggest love and hugs,

Nicole  xoxo

 

 

A Gorgeous Assortment of Crystals!

“Look deep into nature and then you will understand everything better.” ~ Albert Einstein

 

I’m surrounded by crystals right now.

Many of them I’ll holding in meditation so I can channel the meaning of them, ready for my Pop-Up Store and workshops in early November.

Some of them I’m channelling and putting aside to be allocated as part of the packs I’ll put together for my Year of ME Planner. For those people who want one, I’ll choose one of the stones specifically for them, as their meditation stone and gratitude anchor for 2019.

It’s my favourite time of the year, when my home is overflowing with crystals, magical things, essential oils and workshop preparations, and behind all of that the scents of Christmas baking. What’s not to love?

And here’s a sneak preview of something I’m absolutely thrilled about…

It’s a mala I have designed to support you during the energies of 2019 and beyond. Each of the crystals of the month in our 2019 Planner is represented in this mala, which has been lovingly made for me using fair-trade craftswomen in India who have hand-knotted the malas using gemstones and rudraksha, before having them blessed in a Hindu temple. The malas then sit in an energy grid on my farm where I meditate with them before they are ready for you to use in your own meditations. Their energy is incredible and I can’t wait to share them with you!

Both the printed edition of the planner and the mala are a limited release, so be ready to pre-order yours soon! I know you’ll just love them.

Biggest hugs to you from here amidst the stones, Nicole ❤ xx

Guided Meditation and Advice for Sensitive Souls and Emerging Psychics

“Empaths did not come into this world to be victims, we came to be warriors. Be brave. Stay strong. We need all hands on deck.”
Anthon St. Maarten

 

As most of you know, I’m psychic, and have been this way to varying degrees all my life. All of us are intuitive – that’s our birthright, and it’s hardwired into us. Even the most disconnected or ‘non-believing’ of us will still have gut feelings or hunches strong enough that we can acknowledge and act upon them.

But some of us have a much greater sensitivity than that. If you have experienced any of the following (not as a result of mental illness, or a drug or illness induced state!) then this post is written for you:

  • lucid dreaming
  • deja vu
  • precognitive dreams or visions
  • awareness about people, places, objects or events that has no rational cause nor explanation
  • an ability to know information about people
  • sensing the energy field around people or places, and having that affect your body or emotions
  • seeing energy, faces, or other images either in your mind’s eye or through your own eyes
  • hearing voices or knowledge not your own – either as a physical sound, or as a voice, knowing or thought that arises inside you that you somehow understand is not your own
  • having remembrance or recognition of past lives
  • being drawn to psychic activities and tools, such as cards, books, courses, modalities and crystals – where you feel compelled to have or work with these, even when your rational mind protests or doesn’t understand
  • sudden recognition of things previously not known to you – such as knowing the names or uses for things outside your profession or fields of study, or knowing your way around a place you have not ever visited
  • sensing, seeing or hearing Guides, Angels, those who have crossed over, and other energetic beings
  • connection with star people, recurring dreams about or remembered incidences of UFO or alien encounters – these are often not threatening or unpleasant
  • recurring dreams for which you have no explanation
  • a strong sense that you are here to do something, to contribute something, to help in some way – this feeling becomes stronger over time until, if you haven’t worked out what it is yet, it becomes almost a sense of despair or desperation
  • saying or writing things without knowing where the information is coming from
  • performing healing, art, writing, music and other creative acts where you suddenly ‘know’ what to do, even if you have never been shown before
  • understanding animals, children or others with no voice to communicate
  • sudden strong emotions flooding over you that are totally unrelated to what is happening right now

I’m sure there’s more that I could add to that list, but that’s a start…

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.

From long experience, these are my suggestions about how to live as a Sensitive Soul as you begin to Awaken.

  • Rest.  When we’re growing and changing, rest is one of the best gifts we can give ourselves.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Take a good powdered magnesium supplement.  Your muscles and nervous system use magnesium to relax and it we also burn it like rocket fuel when we are engaging in energy work and psychic activity.
  • Drink plenty of fresh, clean water.
  • Use yoga, qi gong 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.
  • 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 bush or bach flower essences, crystals, music, colour and aromatherapy (Want to know about my favourite essential oils for spiritual support and how to get them? Email me at channelnc@gmail.com)
  • Trust, look for support and know that things do get easier over time.

I’ve created a very simple six minute guided meditation to help you open to your spiritual gifts in an energy of safety and protection. Once you know the basics you can easily guide yourself through the process on your own.

Love and Light, ❤ Nicole xx

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

Guided Meditation for Managing and Reducing Stress

“You have to just relax, calm down, take a deep breath and try to see how you can make things work rather than complain about how they’re wrong.” ~ Tom Welling

 

There’s so much change around us right now.

Some of us are overwhelmed with loss and grief and endings.

Some of us are overwhelmed with opportunity and don’t know which direction to pursue.

Most of us have too much on our plates, overflowing to-do lists and simply not enough time in the day to get to everything we need to do.

Deep Breath by Tomas A

Deep Breath by Tomas A

Stress reduces our ability to cope and to be resilient.

Sometimes we need to take a deep breath and slow down for a moment.

You know what I’m talking about…

Disappointments. Things that don’t go to plan. Endings we weren’t expecting. Futures that don’t conform to what we’d been led to believe. Judgments against us. Misunderstandings. Our body misbehaving or breaking. Hopes and dreams that end up in tatters at our feet. Grand ideas that tank. Injustices. Broken promises. Wrongs.

Sometimes life just knocks the wind out of our sails.

Or that’s how it feels…

One thing I’ve learned about life’s hard knocks is that although we may get winded, if we can just take a good deep breath, then pause and take another, we often find things aren’t as bad as they first appeared.

Sometimes, of course, it really is that bad. No matter. Breathing helps. Taking a good deep breath centers you; it calms you down, puts you back in your body, and helps clear your head. Then you can better see your way forward.

We are, all of us, stronger than we know. And it’s usually not until we’re really tested by life that we ever find this out.

I have recorded a twenty minute Guided Meditation for helping you to deal with stress and overwhelm. It uses breathing and visualisation to help reduce tension in your body so that you come to a place of calm and better flow of thoughts, feelings and energy.

All you need to do is make sure that you won’t be disturbed, and then sit or lie quietly and follow along with the sound of my voice.

Nicole Cody’s Guided Meditation for Reducing Stress

In endings and difficulties are always the seeds of a new beginning. I’m intending support, healing, connection, guidance, positive flow and direction for you.

Keep breathing. Trust in good outcomes.

All my love, Nicole ❤ xx

 

Sitting By The Fire, Sending Love Out To The World

“I was born for this moment in Earth’s history and if you believe you are a lightworker, so were you.” 
Eileen Anglin

 

Last night I sat by the fire (it is winter here and the nights are cold) and I meditated. My mala beads clicked between my fingers and I sent love and prayers out into the world.

I sent some to you. I sent some to my family and to my students. I sent some to the wider world and to the planet.

This morning, early, I sat again by the fire. I settled into meditation. I meditated for myself. I meditated for you.

All my days are book-ended by my spiritual practice.

All my life is anchored by this soulful habit of connection and intention.

It shapes everything I am, and everything I do.

If you’ve been feeling alone, isolated or unloved know that it is not true – from this little corner of the world I am with you, I am holding you in love, I am intending for you to be the best that you can be, and my daily prayer for you is that you come to know yourself, to love yourself, and to be at peace in your heart and in your life.
I’m with you, and you are not alone.
Your friend, Nicole ❤ xx
