It’s Not Your Job To Understand The How

“The Universe is under no obligation to make sense to you.” 
Neil deGrasse Tyson

 

Right now we’re in a great energy for making decisions, crafting plans and dreaming up visions of how we would like our lives and our future selves to be.

I hope you take advantage of this energy to remodel your life or your life direction.

I’d also like to offer some advice;

All you need to work out is what you want. It’s not your job to work out the how.

I see so many people come up with a fantastic vision for their lives, or an incredible business idea. The thoughts they have give them energy and motivation. They are inspired. They are lit up from within.

And then…

And then their brain kicks in.

‘But it’s impossible’, their brain tells them. ‘We don’t know how to do that.’ ‘It’s unrealistic.’ ‘That will never work.’ ‘It will take forever and you’re already too old to be starting something like that.’ ‘We don’t have any money.’

Suddenly goals and dreams that were inspiring and potentially life-changing get whittled down to ‘sensible, practical and achievable’. With that smaller goal comes a total loss of passion and enthusiasm. The spark goes out of it. What was inspired becomes more grind. It breaks my heart!

Here’s the thing. It’s not your job to work out the how. It’s only your job to say YES to this big idea. All you need to do is commit to that vision or goal and start putting energy into it as best you can. As soon as you commit the Universe kicks in support and all kinds of magical synchronicities and help begin to flow your way. As you walk the path you’ll work out what direction to take, or what step needs to come next. Or someone else will show you or assist you.

It doesn’t mean there won’t be setbacks or obstacles. We all experience those, no matter what we do.

So, if an idea comes to you and lights you up, say yes to it. Even if you have no idea how to make it happen. The how comes later. And if you don’t say YES to that idea it will leave you, and go find someone who is willing to invest energy into it to make it move from thoughtform into reality. Think about it – I’m sure you’ve had a good idea before and not acted on it. At some later date you’ve walked down the street or turned on the TV and there’s your idea, brought to life by someone else and making them happy or making them money! Hey, you think. That’s my idea. But it isn’t. Because you didn’t commit. You got stuck in your head and let the HOW question overwhelm you.

So, Lovelies, dream big. Dare to think about your future and what that might look like. Be open to ideas. Invite them in. And don’t worry about the HOW. The universe is an ever-unfolding, ever-expanding miracle, looking for opportunities to express and explore. That means that those inspirations need a home. Be that home. Say YES. The HOW will take care of itself. That’s the way it’s always been done. Commit and you will find a way.

Biggest hugs and love to you, Nicole  xx

Living from Self Awareness – Monday Oracle, 20 November 2017

We cannot think of being acceptable to others until we have first proven acceptable to ourselves.
~ Malcolm X

Hello, Lovelies!

November is a month for knowing ourselves deeply, for healing old hurts and for prioritising and redesigning our lives so that they better represent the person we are and the person we want to become.

Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts which the oracle card Self Worth brings us.

So, what awareness does Self-Worth bring us this week?

This week we are invited to step into self-sovereignty. When we are sovereign in our lives we live from the truth that is in our hearts. We care for ourselves and we make choices that are good for us and which are aligned to our values and interests.

If you’re out of alignment somewhere this week you’ll know it. Suddenly you’ll feel it as a deep truth within your body: you’ll know without a flicker or a doubt that you have to lose the weight, change jobs, end the marriage, start speaking up at work, make a debt-management plan, go travelling, get more down time, stop drinking Red Bull, offer your gifts to the world, write that book, stop going to family Christmas, or you’ll know you need to change your appearance, move to another city, go swimming with the dolphins, become an activitist… So many possibilities, and one of them will be true for you. Maybe more.

When we know something in our body as truth it’s a strong conviction. We don’t need to talk ourselves into it. It just is. This knowledge about ourselves sits within us burning bright. It demands to be acted upon. And we want to, even if it puts us outside our comfort zone. We won’t need to discuss it or canvas opinions or advice. We’ll just know. We’ll just decide. Self-sovereignty is a quiet power. But don’t underestimate its life-changing force.

Self-sovereignty can be uncomfortable at first if we have lived our lives putting other people’s needs, expectations and happiness ahead of our own. For many sensitive people who are highly attuned to the energies of others it can be hard to start feeling into who we really are and what is true for us because of the external influences that have always shaped our actions and decisions. You may feel a little (or a lot) lost before you find your way. Your strongest feelings this week may be ‘I can’t do this anymore’, without knowing what to do next. Don’t see feeling lost as a bad thing. Understand that it is a sign that you have moved away from the shore of your old way of being. You are in awareness now. You can’t keep living in denial of your truth. You can’t do that old thing anymore. Knowing this creates separation. It opens up possibilities. Soon the wind will catch your sails and send you in a new direction, one you may not have even contemplated before.

Self-Sovereignty is also a position that reminds that what we can conceive and believe we can draw to us. It’s a week for thinking about how we want our life to change and acting upon it. There is a magic that happens when we do this. All kinds of unseen forces gather to enact help and change for us, opening up synchronicities and helpful resources and relationships. Our universe is an ever-expanding one, and as we move out of stuckness or ‘untruth’ we unleash a power of good on our behalf.

Supportive crystals this week?

Iolite illuminates your depths and helps you to see what’s hiding, and what you’re not seeing – a beautiful stone for boosting self-belief. It’s an unusual stone, but my pick for this week. Green Aventurine opens you out into possibility, tapping you into the joy of living and that wonderful feeling of gratitude. Any double-terminated crystal or cluster of crystals from the quartz family (think clear quartz, smoky, amethyst or citrine) placed in your workspace or the room where you spend most of your time will amplify these inner rays of soul-energy, helping you to recognise them and helping yourself and others to transform easily and with grace and joy. 

 

Helpful essential oils?

I’m loving Young Living’s Envision this week. It’s an oil blend I often use in my workshops and retreats to help my students connect to inner wisdom and intuition. It helps us to see a greater possibility for ourselves. Use Envision for spiritual connection, inspiration and breakthroughs. Dab a drop on your Crown Chakra, back of neck, over your heart, wrists and the soles of your feet, inhale directly or add to your diffuser. 

Want to make your own blend? Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own for you this week, but they’ll also make a delicious combination for diffusing. Vetiver will calm and ground us, promoting emotional balance, Lavender keeps us in flow and relaxed, Ylang Ylang opens our hearts and is supportive when we feel anxious or overwhelmed, and Bergamot brings joy, gratitude and optimism.  To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser. You can find the oils here.

Holding you, as always, in my thoughts, prayers and meditations, and intending for you a life of abundance and joy, where you are no longer limited by your doubts.

All my love,

Nicole ❤ xx

PS: Monday’s oracle card, ‘Self -Worth’, is from the Chakra Wisdom Oracle Deck by Tori Hartman. I use any cards shown as a prompt for channelled messages and my own intuitive wisdom, so my take is sometimes quite different to the meaning found in a book. 

Want to make the most of your year in 2018? Come to my Brisbane events on 15 and 16 December and join me for a night of channelling, or our weekend workshops. I’ll be teaching you how to connect into your inner truth to create and activate a vision board to bring your dreams into reality, and how to use tarot or oracle cards to gain clarity and insights for your life as you learn how to give a reading for yourself or others. We’ll also have a pop up shop filled with delicious crystals and other spiritual tools.  More details here.

 

The Crystal Farmer of Byron Bay

“Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you plant.” ~ Robert Louis Stevenson

 

We live on an organic farm, tucked in the hills behind Byron Bay. Our main focus is organic heritage citrus, beef cattle and bush tucker (Bunya nuts and herbs). But we have come to do a very good additional line of earthed and energetically charged crystals.

Our land holds an abundance of ancient trees and wildlife, and expanses of soft green grass and leaf litter where it is possible for me to lay stones out on the earth beneath these trees, or under open skies or where the various animals (eagles, koalas, platypus, wallabies, powerful owls etc) make their homes.

Neighbours have laughingly begun to call me a crystal farmer because I always seem to be planting or harvesting stones as I charge them up for my retreats and workshops.

In the giant shed where Ben houses his tractors I have row upon row of pallet racking, in which there are all of my boxes of stones. The boxes and crates are carefully marked. I have stones that have been in grids through such varied astrological events as the Mars, Saturn, Mercury Venus and Jupiter alignment of 2000 (this was on another farm, under wide open skies and nights crowded with stars) the 2012 Transit of Venus, the total solar eclipse of 2012, a partial solar eclipse in 2014, the transit of Mercury in 2016 and many supermoons and comet showers.

I also have crates for stones that have been in grids such as my 2016 Ancestors and Songlines grid, as well as stones that have been charged with the energies of plants, places and weather.

To do this energetic charging I lay out crystals on the earth (mostly – sometimes I place individual in trees or even in our creeks and waterholes) in various patterns that conform to the principles of sacred geometry, after which I leave them for a prescribed period of time.

Later I go back to harvest them, digging them out of the earth or from between the grass where it has grown long. All the crystals are then cleaned and placed into storage, ready for use.

I even charge up the stones we use in jewellery and mandala making.

Sometimes I play my Tibetan Singing Bowl over them, or I will tone and sing the songs my Aboriginal Aunties or other elders have taught me.

Eventually we harvest the stones. If the grid is very big I will often call upon Ben and our friends or neighbours to assist with bringing up the stones for me to clean and sort. It’s a lot of work, but once they are harvested and stored away they maintain that energy, ready for use at some future date.

Now we have our Crystal retreat, our mini-retreat and workshop, and our Christmas pop up shop and events coming up, as well as the Crystal Packs for our 2018 Year of ME Planner, we’ve been down in the shed for days, sorting and gathering and allocating stones. I’m bringing out some rare and precious ones for my students, and a few for sale.

And already I am planning a gigantic spiral grid of stones for the total lunar eclipse on January 31 in 2018.

So I guess it’s true – I’m a crystal farmer. I like to think of my harvested stones as the seeds that will help you to grow as you seek your own inner space, soul connection and intuitive path.

We’d love to see you at any of our events, or as part of our growing community of like-minded souls in 2018. You can click on the links to view our events for the remainder of this year. Information about our online community and 2018 courses will be available soon. As well as our community and year-long course and support we have an Awakening to Spirituality retreat for waking up your psychic and intuitive abilities in March 2018, and Advanced Channelling and Energy Techniques using Sacred Geometry in August 2018 – contact my wonderful PA Dana to put your name down on the list to receive more info about those on our pre-release list – she’s at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com

I’m really excited to share this journey with you, and I hope that one day you get to hold one of these special stones.

Sending so much love your way, Nicole  xx

The Energies of November – 2017

“…the whole ‘know thyself’ thing isn’t a journey to a fixed destination. Learning about myself changes me, forcing me to learn more. ‘Know thyself’ isn’t a goal; it’s a road.” 
~  Garon Whited

 

Hello, Lovelies :)

Here we are at November. Energetically it’s a month for knowing ourselves deeply, for healing old hurts and for prioritising and redesigning our lives so that they better represent the person we are and the person we want to become.

That’s important work at any time, but it becomes all the more significant as we realise that the work we do in November is setting us up for the year ahead. The actions we take, the choices we make, and the healing, planning and dreaming we do clears the way for 2018, allowing us to consciously begin manifesting the kind of year we intend for ourselves.

Cards for the Month:

I’ve chosen two cards for November for you: one from the Osho Zen Tarot Deck, and one from Colette Baron-Reid’s Wisdom of the Oracle. Please note I don’t use these cards in the conventional way, but rather as a stimulus for channelled information.

Here is what I have received from each card:

“Have no fear of perfection – you’ll never reach it.” 
Salvador Dalí

November invites you to embrace your faults, and to see your individuality as a good thing. There is no point in trying to conform and losing yourself in the process. Your authority and integrity come from that place inside you where you can be vulnerable and honest – where we get the real you and not some slick marketing promise, or you trying desperately hard to be someone that you’re not.

What you love, who you love and what makes you happy is what’s important. Not what other people think. Not what other people may try to impose upon you. Embrace the yearnings of your heart this month. Stop fighting them and surrender instead. Make your life suit you and support you. Wear clothe that express your personal style, listen to the music you love, rearrange your home and your routines so that what matters to you is better represented.  You’ll be glad you did.

November is an excellent month for healing the hurts and low-self-worth issues that stem from the bullying or judgments of others directed at you as a child, or through your adult years until now. November teaches us where to stand strong, and where we will be better with some flexibility in our lives. We get to define or redefine our priorities. Much of this can happen on its own as you experience emotional shift, but if you know this is a major issue for you seek professional support and get the help you need to move on.

When you live authentically, magic happens. You become magnetic to the right lover, the best fit with friends, the opportunities that actually suit your talents and abilities. November encourages you to move from a limited or stuck version of yourself, or a small version of yourself, to one that is vibrant with your true colours, and full of kindness and possibility.

The second card I’ve chosen is Mending. It’s a time for co-operation, forgiveness, shared vision and tending our dreams.

“Sometimes, reaching out and taking someone’s hand is the beginning of a journey. At other times, it is allowing another to take yours.” Vera Nazarian

In November our self-worth and confidence grow, for no apparent reason except that enough time has been lost in the mistaken belief that we are somehow not enough.

We are supported to acknowledge and accept that there are people in our lives who once hurt us but who have changed, and we see where we may reconnect or mend relationships, letting the past drop away behind us. The blinds fall from our eyes and we also see the relationships and situations that are damaging to our well-being, no matter how positively these things may be viewed by people looking in on our lives. We come to see what is good for us, and what is poison. We’ll see where we need to act, ending or redeeming relationships. We’ll see where we need to forgive ourselves or ask for forgiveness.

In all areas of our life Mending encourages us to repair, improve, make-over and heal ourselves where our life is no longer pleasing or functional. We are shown that it is up to us to choose joy, and to craft a life for ourselves that has beauty and meaning.

It’s a fabulous month for planning, and for all forms of self-improvement. We’re invited to put energy into the things that are dear to us and to work together on projects and dreams.

Best crystals this month?

Green Aventurine and Iolite.

Green Aventurine helps us connect to joy, optimism and self-confidence.It fosters self-love and gratitude for ourselves

Iolite is a mystical stone that helps us to illuminate what’s hidden within ourselves. A stone for self-exploration and for helping us to find our way.

Essential oils to support your journey?

Young Living’s Acceptance and Joy essential oil blends would be my picks for November. Use Acceptance for emotional healing – diffusing anger and pain, ending procrastination and opening to new directions and opportunities. Joy opens our hearts and helps us to re-engage with the flow of life. It is uplifting, comforting and empowering. Dab a drop of either oil on your Crown Chakra, back of neck, wrists and the soles of your feet, inhale directly or add to your diffuser. 

Want to make your own blend? Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own for you this month, but they’ll also make a delicious combination for diffusing. Vetiver will calm and ground us, promoting emotional balance, Lavender keeps us in flow and relaxed,  Ylang Ylang opens our hearts and is supportive when we feel anxious or overwhelmed, and Bergamot for joy, gratitude and optimism.  To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser. You can find the oils here.

Getting Ready For November Energies

“Let yourself be drawn by the stronger pull of that which you truly love.” 
― Jalaluddin Rumi

 

November is nearly here. Energetically it’s a month for knowing ourselves deeply, for healing old hurts and for prioritising and redesigning our lives so that they better represent the person we are and the person we want to become.

10 Reasons Why You Need My End-Of-Year Retreat!

“Reach deep within, and reconnect with the essence of your being.” 
~  Bryant McGill

 

Do you need some time for recharging, reconnecting and being re-inspired? In late November I’ll be running my final residential retreat for 2017 in beautiful Byron Bay, Australia. It’s a special time of year for my team and I. We plan this retreat, no matter what the content focus might be, as a week of Soul Sanctuary – time for self-nurture, friendship, reflection, planning and the foundation of some truly life-changing habits.

This year’s theme is ‘Working With Crystals’.

Here are 10 reasons why you might need to be a participant on this retreat:

  1.  If you’ve always wanted to meditate and you don’t know how, or can’t seem to get into that space on your own, come join us. I’ll teach you a range of simple meditation techniques, including using crystals in meditation. You’ll also get to make a meditation mala to take home with you!
  2. If you are attracted to crystals, and own a few, but have no idea what to do with them, we can help you. This retreat is a Crystals 101 course – aimed at building a solid foundation of skills to help you choose, use and enjoy working with crystals in lots of different and helpful ways. Meditations, grids, mandalas, healing stones and talismans – we explore it all.
  3. If you want to explore and develop your psychic and intuitive skills in a safe and supportive environment, we’ll walk you through the basics and a few extra little steps, using easy and straight-forward methods.
  4. If you’d like to learn how to use tarot and oracle cards intuitively, to give readings for yourself and others, even if you’ve never done anything like this at all, come hang out with us. (And don’t worry if you’re already great at this because I’ll have some new insights for the old hands!)
  5. If you’ve ever used bush flower, bach or crystal essences, and wanted to learn how to make them for yourself, we’ll be showing you at retreat. You’ll take some home in your toolkit, and be gifted one made by Nicole just for you!
  6. If you’ve been interested in reiki or hands-on healing and energy work, but don’t know what to do, we’ll be teaching you some really simple techniques you can use for yourself, your loved ones and your pets.
  7. If you’d love a week of seasonal organic local ingredients, showcasing the best that the Byron Shire has to offer, lovingly prepared as high-vibration meals cooked by our own personal chef and her team – so that you leave retreat feeling healthy, nurtured and well nourished – this retreat is for you.
  8. If you’re hankering for connection with like-minded people, the chance to make new friends, and to work with a teacher who mentors you and holds space for you to be your very best self, a teacher who goes above and beyond in her connection with you, we’re your people. Come join us.
  9. If you want to actually make things, feel things and engage your heart and hands, you’ll love this very practical and hands-on retreat.
  10. If you want next year to be different, and to make the most of the energies of 2018, you need this retreat. 2018 is fast approaching, and its heart-centred energies support connection, collaboration, communication and community. It will be a year for expressing ourselves in the world, for starting and growing life-changing projects, for truly becoming more and offering more of our gifts, talents and wisdom. This Retreat will help you to understand the energies and opportunities of 2018, and get you started with a plan, a full spiritual tool-kit and a personal session with Nicole, focusing on how to make the most of the year ahead.

And did I mention crystals? Such a wonderful array to work with, and some special stones to take home!

My retreats are much more than just a learning environment. They are a safe place for your Soul to evolve. They are a coming together of like-minded people for sharing and connection, and they are a journey that will accelerate your understanding of and love for yourself and your place in the world.

You’ll go home after Retreat relaxed, well-fed (the food is divine!), energised and with a full toolkit of crystals, a solid spiritual practice for your own ongoing development, new friendships, peace in your heart, and a warm glow from being nurtured, supported and revitalised.

This week will suit everyone from complete beginners to those of you who are advanced in your personal or professional practice. It’s also a week where you will be able to recharge after the big year that 2017 has been, and where you will be able to prepare yourself for the new year and all its possibilities.

To find out more email my wonderful PA, Dana Hartnell, directly at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com and she’ll send you some more information and an Expression of Interest form just as soon as she can.

We look forward to having you join us for a very special and transformative experience.

Much love, Nicole ❤ xoxo
