Why You Should Join My YOM Community

“Let your community be your testimony.” 
~ Jaco Strydom

I’m busy creating an online Learning Academy for next year. Why? I’m so darn passionate about helping you to connect to your inner wisdom, intuition and psychic abilities. And you can get access as a Foundation Member now by joining my YOM Community. (Ready to jump in? Click Here)

Imagine that you are lost, stuck, miserable, confused or hating on yourself. You don’t know what to do. You don’t know how to help yourself or how to move forward.

Imagine that you’re full of ideas, but they all lead in different directions and you don’t know which one to choose.

Imagine that you always lead with your head, but that your heart – your intuition – often shows up and gives you a different take on things which you always ignore. Afterwards, when your head was wrong and you wished you’d listened to that inner knowing, you wonder why you always second-guess yourself.

In each of these situations, your intuition and inner knowing is a compass that can guide you forward. Most people have just forgotten how to use it and I know how to show you!

I’m passionate about helping people to reclaim their natural intuitive and psychic ability, to stop being afraid of it, and teaching them how to use it in their daily lives. The change I want to make in the world is to teach you how to reconnect with your own inner knowing and natural spirituality and to understand that being empathic, psychic, sensitive and intuitive is normal and good. Being intuitively connected empowers us to know ourselves, to become self-aware, to live more authentically and to become more confident in ourselves, our direction and our decisions. It helps us to live as better and more satisfied versions of ourselves. Yep, that’s the world I want to live in. That’s why I want you to join my membership community.

If you’re ready, and if you’re looking for a teacher and mentor, I’m here. And so is a beautiful community of like-minded souls. Come join us.
All my love, Nicole xx

Not convinced? Let some of my YOMMERS give you their feedback on what it has meant to them to join my community:


Hey Nicole!!!! 

I just needed to drop you a line to tell you how excited I am about the Academy Of Learning that you are creating for our tribe! I know that there are many people out there that read your blog like I have and are just timid about signing up to join the YOM community. Maybe they are like I was, and think it is just a daily planner. OH, but we both know it is more than that. Lets see….I started following your blog back in 2012. Your free guided meditations and blog helped me get through cancer treatment and the death of my mom. I loved your Kimberley stories, and occasionally you would put some journal activities for us to partake in. Then you created your YOM planner, and community….and I was like….I don’t do planners. If I had KNOWN that it was much more than a planner, I would have joined then. However, I was slow to the take….but I did join  GeSHiDoMo in 2017, which came with a online group. By being in that group of such welcoming ,wonderful people, I was convinced to join the YOM community for 2018. Talk about a life changing year for me! Wow! By February 2019 I was on a plane to Australia going to your Advanced Channeling Retreat! I had never been overseas in my life! The Tribe and you (Ben and the dogs, too) so embraced me and let me feel so welcome! I think about that so much. People I had never met in person offering to let me stay with them, pick me up from the airport….DRIVE ME FROM BRISBANE TO BYRON BAY….I tear up now thinking about it. The retreat was all I could hope for and more, and I now have life long friends that I so cherish. Most importantly, I had been looking for my teacher for a very long time on my spiritual quest. I remember reading this particular blog post. https://cauldronsandcupcakes.com/2018/03/08/last-one-standing/ and thinking “I have found her.”

You are such a profoundly inspirational writer as well as teacher,  I think your own writing will sum up what I love about you the most. https://cauldronsandcupcakes.com/2019/02/20/the-authority-of-soul/ Incidentally, when you wrote this I was on retreat with you…..I remember coming out of retreat and reading this…thinking yes. This is exactly why I love this woman as my mentor, friend and fellow traveler. To quote your own words:

“One of the things that is most important to me as a metaphysical teacher is for you to understand that your ultimate power lies within you, your ultimate authority and wisdom also. This is YOUR life, and when you learn to tune in to your own wisdom you become empowered to make the decisions that are right for you. No-one knows you better. And everything I teach is for the purpose of helping you know yourself, to connect you to your inner wisdom and to help you forge your own considered path in the world.” 

I just really wanted to give my deep heart filled thanks to you and your team. I look so forward experiencing the YOM community evolve into Your Academy For Learning., and where this will take the tribe and myself next.  

You wrote in a blog once….”If you are looking for a teacher, here I am”…….and yes you are. Always. 

Much love to you, Christi


I have been using the ‘Year of ME’ planner since 2016 and to say it has been life changing is not an exaggeration. 

The one thing I love about working with Nicole and her diary is that she has a knack of empowering and guiding you without you ever feeling like you’ve got it wrong or you don’t belong. 

What do I love about the diary the most? It helps me get clear about ‘everything’ in my life, on a daily basis, a weekly & monthly basis and quarterly. The reviews I feel are what I find most helpful plus I can work at my own pace.

Plus you’ve got the added bonus of the FB group which is so supportive & respectful of each other. 

Some folk turn on the TV in the morning for the news, but I go straight to my inbox and look for “Cauldrons & Cupcakes”…Nicole is the BEST guide & I feel so blessed to be part of this community, and I’m sure you will too

What has the YOM community given me?

It has given me the gift of myself. It has reconnected me to long forgotten pieces and parts of my soul that have lain dormant, forgotten and neglected. It has taught me to honour me, care for me, tune in to me and to be gentler with myself. It has connected me to a tribe of women who are just like me. They are sensitive, searching and have experienced life in all it’s bloody glory. They have huge hearts, wise words, and comforting hugs. In fact, some of my closest friends now in my own little circle are women I have met because of Nicole and YOM.

Belonging to YOM means I know that there is a place that I can reach out at any time of the day or night and someone will be there to listen, laugh with or support me.

I am on a spiritual journey, hungry for knowledge. Belonging to YOM means I always have access to information, classes, courses, a pool of talented, experienced souls and a wise teacher leading the tribe.

My planner is a jouney into me at the start of every year. It is solitude, reflection, heart space and starting the year off right. Using oracle cards and meditation, I create a clear vision for the year ahead. I have also developed the habit of tracking my finances and looking at my net position at the end of every month for the first time in my life! I love the weekly cards, the gratitude practise and knowing when the moon is full or new.

With, Nicole, and through YOM I have found a space where my hungry soul is fed and I have found a safe and nurturing place where my soul feels home.

Testimonials for Nicole for Year of Me

Testimonial about using the Planner

I am a planner girl from way back! I love a hard copy planner I can write my appointments and meetings in but like many people I’ve never quite found the ideal planner for me.

At the start of 2016 I started working with the Year of Me Planner created by Nicole Cody. Nicole’s planner offered me much more than the traditional planners I had worked with before, and has become my go-to planner ever since.

The Year of Me planner allowed me to integrate my spiritual work along with my practical day-to-day schedule. Spending time analysing the year that had just ended, seeing how the year ahead looked, and using oracles cards to get a feel for my week, month and year has guided me to a place I could never foresee these past three and a half years.

The practical nature of the planner has allowed me to tick more off my to-do list than I ever thought possible. The process Nicole shares in the planner has also helped me gain clarity around my bigger personal and professional goals, allowing me to step more fully onto my true path.

If you’re looking for a planner that takes you deeper, that supports you on your spiritual path, and helps you tick off your to-do’s, I highly recommend the Year of Me Planner.

Testimonial about the course and community

In 2016 I purchased Nicole Cody’s Year of Me Planner and twelve month online course and support forum – and I have been a part of the community ever since!

I’ve attended a number of Nicole’s retreats and knew that the guidance she would offer through the course would help me reach the goals I wanted to achieve each year. What I didn’t realise was that the online community would become one of my favourite places to hang out online, to grow, learn and support others, and receive support in return.

The Year of Me course and support materials Nicole has created really do help you reach your personal and professional goals with grace and understanding of where you’re at and what your needs are. Knowing there is a community behind you, supporting you and cheering you on, is an incredible part of this journey, one I am glad I made the choice to be part of.

My New Online Course AND Half-Year Membership Course Intake

“If the point of life is the same as the point of a story, the point of life is character transformation. If I got any comfort as I set out on my first story, it was that in nearly every story, the protagonist is transformed. He’s a jerk at the beginning and nice at the end, or a coward at the beginning and brave at the end. If the character doesn’t change, the story hasn’t happened yet. And if story is derived from real life, if story is just condensed version of life then life itself may be designed to change us so that we evolve from one kind of person to another. ” 
Donald Miller

There’s something I care about very much. And that’s you.

I care about your journey. I care about your spiritual and intuitive awakening. I want to empower you to know yourself, to trust yourself, and to have a bag full of tools to support you as you travel this sometimes hard and unpredictable road that we call life.

I know what it is to be sensitive, empathic, intuitive, psychic, other. I know how hard it can be to navigate life’s journey when the road is hard and I am weary or stuck or broken down under the weight of hardship. I also know what it is to feel a calling, to have a dream, or at least a yearning to change, but to be stuck in that place of being unable to make a decision or to know where to start.

So, I have two exciting pieces of news for you.

One: Due to overwhelming request I have opened my private YOM Membership Group and Online Course for a midyear intake.

Two: I’ve created a new online course – the Journey of Transformation Intuitive Card Spread Course – which my YOM Students are already raving about (they have access already because they are paid members of our Membership group and community – see point one, above).

(In a hurry to grab it? – go here to access the store)

Let me tell you about the Mid-Year Intake to YOM first.

We’ve decided to create a mid-year intake for our Planner and Membership Community. We’re doing this because we’ve had so many requests to join and next year we launch our Learning Academy so we wanted to reward our loyal readers, clients and students with access to this year’s Foundation pricing and all of the benefits that will go along with that.

I know, you might think this is all about a Planner, but it isn’t really. It’s so much more! It’s about giving you skills, confidence, community and access to ongoing learning. I am passionate about empowering people to know themselves, to use their intuition and to create more meaningful and satisfying lives for themselves by living from a heart-centred and self-aware space. Being a member of my community will help you do this.

What you get with this 1/2 Year Membership Package:

  • Hard Copy YOM Planner, posted to your door (or pick one up from us if you’re in Brisbane, Australia) plus a little surprise, because who doesn’t love surprises!
  • digital version of the YOM Planner for direct download
  • Access to the YOM Foundations online course, which gives you all the basics you need for working with the Planner and for beginning the journey of intuitive awareness – this is material you can work through at your own pace, dipping in and out as necessary
  • Access to the 2019 YOM Journey Through the Year online course – this material is also self-paced study with access to videos, meditations and other materials.
  • Access to the Members Only YOM Facebook Group for 2019 – the community is AMAZING, so supportive, active, wise, kind and wonderful. You’ll love it. I often jump on Facebook Live to keep our crew up-to-date with what’s going on energetically or to pull cards for them or give tips and advice. And the group themselves have so much wisdom and heart. It’s the ultimate support group for empaths, intuitives, psychics and sensitive souls.
  • Access to two new 90 minute webinars as they fall due within the rest of this year. These are exclusive events for Nicole’s YOM community. Nicole shares information, teaches and also channels her Guides and Energetic Companions for you. There are opportunities for you to ask questions and the webinars are recorded so you can watch them whenever you need to.
  • Free Access to the Journey of Transformation Intuitive Card Spread online course
  • Free Access to the Crystal Grid for Personal and Family Healing online course when it opens
  • Additional member bonuses including Guided Meditations and other activities to support you on your journey
  • Discounts for Retreats and other Live Events

So if you want the incredible value of a six month membership to our YOM community, which INCLUDES the Journey of Transformation Course as well as access to webinars, an ongoing online course that helps you navigate the year, and a very active private Facebook group as well as a bunch of other surprises then join us by clicking here.

Now let me tell you about this new online course – The Journey of Transformation.

(In a hurry to grab it – go here to access the store)

Many, many years ago I channelled a beautiful and very helpful card spread with my Guide, Rollo. He assured me that this card spread would help me to find my own answers. I didn’t believe him. I wanted him to tell me. Or an Angel. Or an Oracle. Anyone wise. Anyone. But not me – I mean how could I rely on myself when I was the one who was lost?

Ah, said Rollo. Your Wise Self knows. You just don’t remember how to live from that space anymore.

He was right. And he was also right about this card spread. It works. It has guided me well, so many times, through so many layers of transformation.

So when I was thinking about how I could support you I realised that I could teach you this same spread, and show you step by step how to use it to bring insight and create transformation in your own life.

It works. And the course I’ve created is pretty darn awesome too.

The Journey of Transformation Intuitive Card Spread Course features:

  • Two downloadable guided meditations
  • Over two hours of instructional videos
  • A downloadable Workbook to support your journey.

You don’t need to have any prior experience with using Tarot or Oracle Cards – I’ll show you everything you’ll need to know and walk you through the process using a card reading I do for myself as an example for you.

It’s a technique you can come back to again and again, and it’s also something you can use when coaching or guiding others.

I’m already getting great feedback about my course from my YOM members (it’s one of the many free bonuses that our membership group enjoy!) and I know you’re going to love it too.

It’s taught completely online, at your own pace, and once you purchase the course you’ll have lifetime access to it. I’ve also made it stupidly cheap because I want you all to buy it, use it, enjoy it and grow from it.

Whether you are a complete beginner and have never done anything like this before or an old hand at giving yourself an intuitive reading you’ll find value in this course.

Bountiful Blessings and Celebration – Monday Oracle 17 June 2019

“Be the celebrators, celebrate! Already there is too much—the flowers have bloomed, the birds are singing, the sun is there in the sky—celebrate it! You are breathing and you are alive and you have consciousness, celebrate it!”  ~ Osho

Hello, Lovelies!

June brings energies of growth and transformation. This month you can build on existing situations, foundations and opportunities, further transforming your life through work and self-belief. (And stay tuned, because I have a gorgeous new online course launching tomorrow which will help you capitalise on all of this good energy!) This month you’ll start to see results, and your progress will become visible to others too. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card Rainbow Dragon brings us.

This is another really beautiful week of spiritual connection. But it’s not that raw intuitive place we were in last week, where you may have felt like all of your senses were in overload. This week’s energies are gentle – and focus on supporting you to be both perceptive and grateful.

You’ll be open and heart-centred and able to truly feel what’s going on from a space of empathy and kindness. It’s a great week for gratitude, for counting your blessings, for celebration. It is absolutely a week for sharing your love and appreciation and affection with the people around you and celebrating all of those things that are good in your life. 

It’s also a week of feeling kinder and more generous toward yourself, and toward those you love.

If your relationship with yourself has been less than stellar you’ll find yourself softening this week, so that you can embrace yourself, forgive yourself, laugh at yourself (kindly of course), accept yourself and love yourself more easily. You’ll also feel more inclined to try things without being so darned judgemental and critical of yourself.

If your relationship with a friend or loved one has been less than great you’ll find that you are able to mend bridges, to let go of hurt, to move on, to try again. It’s a wonderful time for reminiscing and discussing memories of experiences you’ve shared. It’s also a time of creating a new way forward that can work better for both of you so that you can leave the pain and hurt of the past in the past.

Celebrate a little or a lot this week. Because what’s life without celebration?

Supportive crystals this week?

Map Jasper helps you to concentrate, analyse and understand. It supports the adrenals and counteracts overthinking and intellectual exhaustion. (Can’t find Map Jasper? Use a combination of your favourite Jasper with Black Tourmaline.) Peach Moonstone encourages self-care, soothes worry, raises vibration and stimulates your capacity to problem solve using both intuition and reason. White Howlite will promote calm, tranquillity, self-acceptance and a feeling of emotional spaciousness. Amber (pictured) supports you to find and live from a place of creativity and joy, opening you to possibility while helping you to stay grounded.

  • Ylang Ylang
  • Lavender
  • Sandalwood
  • Lemon

I’m passionate about essential oils and their capacity to support our wellness journey and our spiritual and emotional wellbeing. If you’d like to know more or want to source the oils I recommend and trust visit this site or contact me at channelnc@gmail.com

Support for your Intuitive Journey

I’ve got something exciting for you tomorrow – but I’m going to wait til then to tell you what it is!

Have fun this week. Live from your heart, stay kind and celebrate the small and the big things of your life. Above all, cultivate gratitude and mindfulness. Let your heart guide you and you can’t go wrong!

Lots of love, Nicole ❤ xx

PS: Monday’s oracle card, ‘Rainbow Dragon’, is from the Sacred Power Reading Cards by Anna Stark. I use any cards shown as a prompt for channelled messages and my own intuitive wisdom, so my take is sometimes quite different from the meaning found in a book. 

One Space Has Opened Up On My Shamanic Meditation Retreat. Is it yours?

“According to Vedanta, there are only two symptoms of enlightenment, just two indications that a transformation is taking place within you toward a higher consciousness. The first symptom is that you stop worrying. Things don’t bother you anymore. You become light-hearted and full of joy. The second symptom is that you encounter more and more meaningful coincidences in your life, more and more synchronicities. And this accelerates to the point where you actually experience the miraculous.” ~ Deepak Chopra

I believe in synchronicity, and in destiny unfolding in ways that are aligned with our Highest Good, especially when we are in times of spiritual and psychic awakening.

My August Temple of Light Shamanic Meditation Retreat has been booked out for months. And it’s the last one I am going to run at this venue and in this format.

Now a vacancy has suddenly opened due to a participant needing to cancel to be able to support a loved one through unexpected surgery.

I know that there is someone who needs to be on this course with us and that the sudden cancellation gives them that opportunity. Is that person you?

Temple of Light is one of my favourite Retreats. It’s a gentle but powerful week of meditation and private journeying where I guide you every step of the way in learning a shamanic meditation that will continue to grow you and grow with you long after this retreat finishes.

I know that this group is special, and I’m including some new teachings on this course that are very advanced. You’ll cope with them fine. It’s time.

So, if you’ve been waiting for a meditation retreat that can transform your life this is the one for you.

To find out more email my PA Trish Lyons directly at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com and she’ll send you some more information and an Expression of Interest form.

But act fast. There’s only one spot!

Much love, Nicole xx

Monday Oracle – 10 June 2019

“We can’t be afraid of change. You may feel very secure in the pond that you are in, but if you never venture out of it, you will never know that there is such a thing as an ocean, a sea. Holding onto something that is good for you now, may be the very reason why you don’t have something better.
~ C. JoyBell C.

Hello, Lovelies!

June brings energies of growth and transformation. This month you can build on existing situations, foundations and opportunities, further transforming your life through work and self-belief. You’ll start to see results, and your progress will become visible to others too. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card Exploration brings us.

Exploration is about future vision – that vision you can create for yourself of the life you want to have, the life that inspires or nurtures or fulfills you better than the life you are living right now. It’s about the spirit of possibility and of experiencing life rather than simply existing, of growing and realising more of your potential, of changing in ways that engage, please and satisfy you.

This week put aside your sense of practicality, your self-doubt, and that part of you that shuts down ideas and new directions before you’ve even begun. Let yourself dream a bit. Got dreams already that you’ve put in a box and forgotten or that you’ve ignored? Exploration urges you not to give up on them just yet!

Transformation often starts by seeing possibilities for yourself in whatever area of your life you’d like to change. Possibilities are fueled by research. How can you know what you want and follow that path if you don’t know what’s available? This week is a great week to find out more about the things that have been engaging your curiosity or that have popped into your awareness unbidden.

Exploration is also saying: ‘Do I need a guide? Do I need someone to guide me in whatever area of my life I’m looking for that growth and change?’

Sometimes the thing that grows us is finding a guide, a coach, a mentor. You might need a course, or to join a group of like-minded people who are focused on the same interest as you.

And for a few of you? The Universe has a clear message. YOU ARE THE GUIDE. What are you waiting for? There is someone out there who needs your help, your wisdom, your message. It’s time.

(No idea how to do that or feel like you need some guidance with that yourself? Contact my PA Trish at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com and put your name down for advance notification on my course and retreat Platform in November 2019 – which is all about helping you craft your book, message and course to put out into the world.)

Supportive crystals this week?

Map Jasper helps you to concentrate, analyse and understand. It supports the adrenals and counteracts overthinking and intellectual exhaustion. (Can’t find Map Jasper? Use a combination of your favourite Jasper with Black Tourmaline.) Peach Moonstone encourages self-care, soothes worry, raises vibration and stimulates your capacity to problem solve using both intuition and reason. Clear Quartz (pictured) amplifies intuition and your ability to tune in to Universal and Personal Wisdom. It’s a great stone to enable you to understand at a soul level what you really need. Amazonite helps you to live bravely and from your heart, especially in regard to decisions and direction. It will boost self-confidence and self-worth. 

Helpful essential oils?

Combine Frankincense, Lemon and Douglas Fir Essential Oils for an energising and focusing diffuser blend this week. A ratio of 2 drops of Frankincense and 3 drops each of Lemon and Douglas Fir is delicious!

Frankincense helps you to be grounded and connected at the same time, and reduces stress and inflammation within the body.  Lemon is uplifting and helps bring focus and clarity, and Douglas Fir (pictured below) helps your mind to move past limitations and to connect into possibility and good decisions and it has the added bonus of smelling like Christmas Trees – all woody freshness with some citrus undertones.

Need an oil to enhance your creativity, and to help you move out of overwhelm or anxiety? Use Neroli by diluting and applying to your pulse points as a perfume or add it to your diffuser alone or with a couple of drops of the oils mentioned above.

I’m passionate about essential oils and their capacity to support our wellness journey and our spiritual and emotional wellbeing. If you’d like to know more or want to source the oils I recommend and trust visit this site or contact me at channelnc@gmail.com

This is your one precious life (with this particular set of people, circumstances and dates anyway) – and only you can live it. Be open to the energies of Exploration this week. If you’re not satisfied with your life the way it is, trust that this week you can be shown glimpses of how it could be. Transformation is in the air, and I have so much faith in you! I’m cheering you on.

Lots of love, Nicole ❤ xx

Sometimes Meditation Trumps Blogging

“The really important kind of freedom involves attention, and awareness, and discipline, and effort, and being able truly to care about other people and to sacrifice for them, over and over, in myriad petty little unsexy ways, every day.” 
~ David Foster Wallace

Good Morning! (or hello for whatever timezone you are in!)

I’m a little late blogging today. But I have good reason.

Right now I’m holding space for many of you in my meditations, and some of you have needed extra time, care and attention. So my usual meditations have been taking me longer than normal. Which is fine by me. It’s something I love to do and am honoured to do.

If you’ve already been asked to be included in my meditations I have you! It’s not too late to join me though, if you still want to be included. Just leave me a comment below this post.

Please don’t hesitate to ask. I have room for all of you. There is space and time for all of you.

This is what I’m working on:

Until June 9 I am focusing on supporting you to move through and begin to resolve feelings of loss, fear, anxiety, overwhelm, emotional isolation and powerlessness. My aim is to find the places where emotion has become stuck inside you, causing you to become out of alignment. I am also looking for the old stories, traumas and memories which are subconsciously shaping you in opposition to your soul’s true nature. In my meditations I will dissolve these outmoded energies and stories, returning them to love and releasing their patterns from your energetic field.

As your energy comes back into alignment with your true nature, your vibration will rise and you will be more easily able to express yourself creatively and emotionally. It will increase your sense of self-awareness and self-trust.

I meditate twice a day, morning and evening. I also connect with some people during my night-flying practices. If you’d like me to include you or a loved one specifically in my meditations just let me know in the comments below.  And, of course, I love getting feedback about anything you notice as a result of my meditations.

This next week has enormous energy for intuition, all kinds of psychic work and for vibrational shift. Why not spend some time in meditation and connection yourself? I promise it’s a kindness that your body, mind and spirit will thank you for.

Much love, Nicole xx

Insight and Intuition – Monday Oracle 3 June 2019

“Intuition is seeing with the soul.” 
~ Dean Koontz

Hello, Lovelies!

June brings energies of growth and transformation. This month you can build on existing situations, foundations and opportunities, further transforming your life through work and self-belief. You’ll start to see results, and your progress will become visible to others too. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card Intuition brings us.

This is a huge week for psychic and spiritual insight. You’ll find yourself connected in flow. Ideas, realisations, understanding and direction will come easily this week. You’ll be able to access this relaxed state of knowing and flow by moving out of stress. Exercise and meditation is great for that, but so is taking a long soak in the tub, knitting or chopping vegetables for dinner. Inspiration may come in a daydream, a sudden flash of ‘knowing’, in a dream or as a thought or awareness that slowly rises to the top of your conscious mind. Journalling and using your oracle or tarot cards is another useful way to access this flow of information.

Inspiration heralds synchronicities, opportunities coming your way, and things unlocking so that progress can finally be made. It’s a week of positive energy and things going right for you.

This week is quite intense energy which will be problematic for some people because spiritually it means everyone will be a little more sensitive and little more perceptive than usual. That’s not a bad thing, it is simply something that needs to be managed if you know you are one of those more sensitive souls. 

Supportive crystals this week?

Map Jasper helps you to concentrate, analyse and understand. It supports the adrenals and counteracts overthinking and intellectual exhaustion. (Can’t find Map Jasper? Use a combination of your favourite Jasper with Black Tourmaline.) Peach Moonstone (pictured) encourages self-care, soothes worry, raises vibration and stimulates your capacity to problem solve using both intuition and reason. Fire Agate gifts you courage to follow your spiritual path, and inspires you to grow beyond your current limits. It’s a stone to kindle your creative flame. Clear Quartz amplifies intuition and our ability to tune in to Universal and Personal Wisdom. Use it to get clear about what matters in your life! 

Helpful essential oils?

I’m loving Frankincense and Neroli this week. Use Frankincense for focus, inspiration and breakthroughs. Dab a drop on your Crown Chakra and the soles of your feet, inhale directly or add to your diffuser. It will also help keep you grounded, even as you stay connected.

Use Neroli to help you move back to a place of contentment, confidence and happiness. It’s great to inhale directly, diffuse or add a drop to Heart Chakra, throat and inner wrists like perfume. A few drops added to your bath make for magical self-care. Don’t have Neroli? Try Wild Orange or Bergamot instead.

I’m passionate about essential oils and their capacity to support our wellness journey and our spiritual and emotional wellbeing. If you’d like to know more or want to source the oils I recommend and trust visit this site or contact me at channelnc@gmail.com

Wishing you a transformative and uplifting week of insights, awareness and increased intuition.

Lots of love, Nicole ❤ xx

Energies of June 2019

“An awake heart is like a sky that pours light.” 
~ Hafiz

Hello, Lovelies!

At the beginning of every month, I discuss the energies and gifts of the month ahead and how we can best use them to make our lives satisfying, meaningful and productive. I also choose a card to support the energies of the month. The deck I am using this year is The Good Tarot by Colette Baron-Reid, and June’s card is 8 of Fire.

June brings energies of growth and transformation. 

This month you can build on existing situations, foundations and opportunities, further transforming your life through work and self-belief. You’ll start to see results, and your progress will become visible to others too.

The power of teamwork and of focus can’t be overestimated this month. There are so many choices in front of you now, and you may feel like there are too many choices and that everything is moving past you too fast. 

If you feel like that, look for some quiet time amid the bustle and haste. Use nature and meditation to bring you back to calm. Choose just a few things on which to focus. 

Let the rest go for now, or delegate it to someone else. And get a team together – people who can help and support you. You’ll go so much further together than trying to get it all done on your own.

June puts an emphasis on your health, healing and wellbeing. Don’t let your health slide at the expense of your dreams and goals. Look at ways to work sustainably and get help wherever you can.

Make sure to get a health check, and to keep on top of all of the habits and choices that let you live your best life.

Leave a little time for celebration this month too. Don’t let everything be everyday ordinary. 

You don’t need a reason to celebrate – being alive is enough! 

Surround yourself with people who support and uplift you. 

Do things that make you feel alive. Celebrate others too. Share the joy around.

Fill your life with colour, love and passion. Trust in the journey and believe in good outcomes.

Best crystals this month?

Map Jasper helps you to concentrate, analyse and understand. It supports the adrenals and counteracts overthinking and intellectual exhaustion. 

Peach Moonstone

Peach Moonstone encourages self-care, soothes worry, raises vibration and stimulates your capacity to problem solve using both intuition and reason.

Would You Like Me To Include You In My Meditations?

https://cauldronsandcupcakes.com

“Through my love for you, I want to express my love for the whole cosmos, the whole of humanity, and all beings. By living with you, I want to learn to love everyone and all species. If I succeed in loving you, I will be able to love everyone and all species on Earth… This is the real message of love.” 
~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Meditation is the cornerstone of my life. It is the first thing I do when I wake up each morning. It is the last thing I do before I go to bed.

I don’t just meditate to find stillness and peace. I also use meditation for shamanic and mystical work. I use it to connect with and help my students, I use it to access healing, and to share and support energies.

This week I’m working on some very specific areas for emotional and spiritual healing that may also have an impact on physical well-being too.

For the next few days I am focusing on supporting you to move through and begin to resolve feelings of loss, fear, anxiety, overwhelm, emotional isolation and powerlessness. My aim is to find the places where emotion has become stuck inside you, causing you to become out of alignment. I am also looking for the old stories, traumas and memories which are subconsciously shaping you in opposition to your soul’s true nature. In my meditations I will dissolve these outmoded energies and stories, returning them to love and releasing their patterns from your energetic field.

As your energy comes back into alignment with your true nature, your vibration will rise and you will be more easily able to express yourself creatively and emotionally. It will increase your sense of self-awareness and self-trust.

I meditate twice a day, morning and evening. I also connect with some people during my night-flying practices. If you’d like me to include you or a loved one specifically in my meditations just let me know in the comments below.  And, of course, I love getting feedback about anything you notice as a result of my meditations.

Much love, Nicole xx

Rest And Find Your Center – Monday Oracle 27 May 2019

“Activity and rest are two vital aspects of life. To find a balance in them is a skill in itself. Wisdom is knowing when to have rest, when to have activity, and how much of each to have. Finding them in each other – activity in rest and rest in activity – is the ultimate freedom.” 
~ Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Hello, Lovelies!

Here we are in the final days of May. May has been such a breakthrough month – it’s been a time for positive progress, big leaps forward and fine-tuning of your self-awareness. Lots of lightbulb moments, dramatic shifts and realisations and the odd bit of pattern breaking. So I know you’ll appreciate the energies and gifts of inspiration which the card Rest brings us this week.

Rest is about you recognising it is important to find that balance between sustainability and momentum. Nothing can burn bright endlessly. Everything needs replenishment. So what nourishes and replenishes you?

It’s easy to think of food and exercise as nourishment. They are, but we are also soulful creatures with hungry minds and searching souls. Our souls have their own appetites. Maybe you need to go watch a football game and revel in being part of the larger crowd. Perhaps live music will fill you up, or a wine and cheese tasting at your local cellars. An early-morning surf could be your thing, or a picnic with family or friends, or an intimate date with your beloved. How long has it been since you read a book, listened to the birds in the backyard, visited a new restaurant or attended a workshop about something that interests you?

Rest is also about trying to work out how to incorporate rest into your every day, rest into your week or your weekend or your month. It’s about you thinking about longer holidays. Can you find a work/life rhythm that works for you? Can you start work earlier and finish earlier, or give yourself a later start one day a week? Can you clear one day on your weekend to simply relax and have time for yourself? Can you put the kids in care one afternoon a week to create a window of time just for you?

The messages and wisdom of Rest help you to become mindful about creating sustainability in your life so that you don’t burn out.

Supportive crystals this week?

Pyrite provides passion, power and protection. It builds determination and self-belief.  Dalmatian Jasper helps you move forward, living in mindfulness. It releases stress and amplifies joy. Rose Quartz (pictured) is a stone of love and nurture – it helps you to be open to the giving and receiving of love. Yellow Obsidian is a gently shielding stone that helps you to think clearly and to break patterns of self-criticism and negative thinking. It aids in looking for positive solutions to life’s dilemmas and for embracing change.

Helpful essential oils?

This week look to create a nurturing blend from any or all of the following oils:
Lavender keeps us in flow and relaxed, Neroli invites optimism and a sense of safety, Frankincense elevates our mood and promotes spiritual connection and intuition while keeping us grounded and Ylang Ylang opens our hearts and is supportive when we feel anxious or exhausted. To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your diffuser.

I’m passionate about essential oils and their capacity to support our wellness journey and our spiritual and emotional wellbeing. If you’d like to know more or want to source the oils I recommend and trust visit this site or contact me at channelnc@gmail.com

PS: Monday’s oracle card, Rest, is from the Sacred Power Reading Cards by Anna Stark . I use any cards shown as a prompt for channelled messages and my own own intuitive wisdom, so my take is sometimes quite different to the meaning found in a book.
