Join Me For A New Journalling and Oracle Card Challenge?

chakra-journal-challenge-2

“The closer you come to knowing that you alone create the world of your experience, the more vital it becomes for you to discover just who is doing the creating.”
~ Eric Michael Leventhal

Keeping a journal is something I’ve done since I was a child. I don’t mean a simple diary, where you record the events of the day. You know what I mean… I ate this. I did this. Someone said that. No. I mean a place where I could explore ideas, talk with myself, and find my own answers.

Over the last few years I’ve created several journal challenges here on my blog, and I’ve just made a new one for you, to take advantage of the fabulous energies March and April bring for uncovering the hidden and neglected aspects of yourself, and for determining where you are out of step with yourself, so that you can bring your life into alignment with your true nature and values. It’s a great time for getting to know yourself better and for forging new directions in your life. Would you like to join me?

We’ll be starting this new challenge on Tuesday 28 February, so that you have time to gather your resources together. Our first Tuesday will be an orientation day. Then each Tuesday for March and April I will have a new journal activity for you to complete during the week. You’ll need a minimum of ten minutes to set aside each week for writing, and an additional five minutes per day for five out of seven days for energy work on yourself to facilitate your own healing and wellbeing. I’ll teach you everything you need to know. You can be a complete beginner at all of this!

I will be using the Chakras as a guide for this challenge. You don’t need to know anything about them either. All you need to do is bring a willingness to know yourself better.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • A new journal. Choose one that feels right for you. Make sure there are enough pages to get you through nine activities.
  • Some pens and pencils.
  • A crystal or stone to use as a gratitude and focus stone. (If you’re doing my Year of ME program feel free to use your 2017 stone for this challenge!)
  • A deck of oracle or tarot cards.
  • A sense of adventure and a readiness to explore your inner world.

NB: A note on choosing oracle or tarot cards – choose cards whose pictures and messages are meaningful to you. Avoid cards such as tarot decks that show only coins or cups etc. Instead choose a deck whose imagery really speaks to you. It’s the pictures that matter. Don’t worry if you don’t know how to use them. I’ll be showing you.

That’s my own journal, cards and stones in the picture below. I’ll be right beside you doing each week’s activities too. My gratitude rock is a smoky quartz and amethyst point (that’s the big one – the other two are a tourmalinated quartz and a prehnite that live in the same bag as my oracle cards and who came with me on my holidays). The oracle cards I’ll be using are Colette Baron-Reid’s Enchanted Map cards. And I just bought a new journal from a cool bookstore here in Vietnam, where I am currently travelling. It’s just the right size for our challenge and not too heavy in my luggage. (I won’t tell you about the other five journals I bought at the same place…)

Much love, Nicole ❤ xx

 

Learn to Channel in 2017!

“I suspect everybody has a degree of psychic ability, just as a everybody has a degree of athletic or artistic ability. Some people have special gifts; other people have a particular interest that leads them to develop their abilities. But the phenomenon itself is ordinary and widespread.”
~ Michael Crichton, Travels

“Psychic power is the ability to download information directly from the Universe.”

Have you ever wanted to learn to channel?

Have you always wanted to connect in to Universal Energy and Wisdom for counselling, healing, teaching, writing or energy work?

Do you feel a calling to spiritual service, or a need to explore your psychic gifts?

Are you going through a psychic awakening and don’t know what to do, or how to best access your gifts and talents?

Do you want to learn how to work more intuitively?

If your answer is yes, then my ‘Beginners Channelling Intensive’ Retreat is for you!

From 29 April to 4 May 2017, I’m hosting a residential retreat at Byron Bay, Australia, to teach you how to safely and easily tap into your own psychic and intuitive abilities.

In fact, this retreat is only part of the Intensive. There will be two weeks of simple preparatory exercises and an online course and forum before the retreat, and then there will be post-course exercises and teachings for the month following the course. This will you will come to the retreat ready to work and in the best possible space for your success. After the retreat I’ll help you integrate what we have learned and easing you back into life without losing your connection to all you have opened up to. I’ll be on hand to answer your questions, and to share the journey. During this entire time I will hold you in meditation twice a day.

Want to get a taste of what it’s like to attend one of my retreats? You might like to read this post and watch the video there.

Channelling enables us to connect with our Higher Selves – helping us to live from a place of self-knowledge and self-acceptance. It helps us to connect with our authentic nature and our talents and gifts. This enables a much clearer understanding of ourselves and of a life path that will be meaningful to us. Channelling can also facilitate connection to Guides, Angels, those who have crossed over, other Light Beings, and Spirit.

When we channel we co-create with Source Energy, amplifying our own innate talents and gifts, and bringing through healing, insights, ideas and wisdom for the benefit of self and others. Effectively, when we move into a channelling space we step out of isolation and into a place of support, connection and flow. It’s a place where we can continue to evolve and grow as we move towards becoming the best possible version of ourselves for this lifetime.

Channelling has always been a natural progression of ability for Aware Souls.

This Intensive Retreat is about helping you come back to your true soul-centre. It’s about getting you ready to do the work you came here to do, or advancing your existing work in the world.

On this course I’ll explain and demonstrate many different forms of channelling and intuitive work. And then I’ll teach them to you. This is also the first year where I will guide you through a deeply personal Vision Quest for this next chapter in your life to help you get clear about your Soul Path.

To attend this course you must feel ready in your heart to step into this place of deeper self-awareness and soul connection, and be prepared to follow where that path may lead. For some of you this will mean stepping into service in some new way. For some of you it will mean a deepening of your existing work or practice. And for some of you it will turn your life upside-down as you are shown paths and possibilities that are in better alignment with your soul energy, and which are very different to your current life.

This course will open your psychic channel and enable deep intuitive connection as a way of life. This doesn’t mean you’ll need to adopt a spiritual name, begin wearing tie-dye and start waving crystals around. It just means that it’s time for you to step into being your most authentic self. That path may simply be one of self-work and self-awareness. You may have a life path as a writer, an artist or a creator of policy. You may choose to work within business, in governance and the structure of our society, or shaping the future of our world. Or you may choose to work as a healer, a teacher, a guide and counselor for others. It is okay to not have clarity about your direction yet – what is important is your commitment to growth, and your desire to work in service to others or the wider world in some way. There will be time on this retreat for you to seek clarification and guidance about your next steps in life, and in service to others.

Throughout the retreat I will conduct channelled sessions with my own Guides to customise your learning experience. You’ll also be strongly connected into your Guides, a healing team, or whoever else is appropriate for your journey. This is only the beginning of a long and wonderful working relationship with the energetic realms. This retreat will help you commence and cement these energetic bonds.

You’ll also be gifted hand-chosen crystals, essential oils, and a range of other tools to help you with your journey. Our personal chef will be supporting us too, with delicious organic foods that are carefully chosen and lovingly prepared.

Please note that I will be screening all applicants to ensure that our workshop is a safe and supportive working space and that you will cope with the work we are about to do together. If you are not yet ready for such an immersive experience I will suggest alternatives to help you prepare for entry to the next course we run. The retreat is a hands-on course and numbers will be strictly limited.

2016-12-28-19-15-37

What we’ll cover on this Retreat:

  • What it really means to be a Lightworker
  • Learning to meditate to achieve ‘Zen Connection’
  • An introduction to channelling, the various energies and forms through which this connection can take place, and how individuals have used this energy in past and current times for good works and healing
  • Channelling demonstration with Nicole’s Guides, allowing you a fantastic opportunity for questions and answers
  • Vision Quest – A 17 hour period of deep, personal journey-making, guided by Nicole
  • Channelling healing and knowledge for ourselves
  • Connection to a new High Order Guide or a deepening of our existing connection
  • Accessing the Akashic Records for ourselves
  • Preparation for Channelling – Learn how to raise your auric vibration, energy levels and spiritual integrity so that you can channel effectively and safely. Nicole will discuss diet, sleep, right intent, meditation, prayer, and other forms of connection. She will also talk about the importance of spiritual and soul growth, and what this actually means for you. You will learn about the role of the Lightworker as a Channel, and the inherent responsibilities this entails.
  • Trance Channel – Learn how to Channel from a Trance state. This is the easiest form of energetic Channelling, but can also be the most unstable. You will find out how to safely “step out of the way” so that your body can be used as an energetic medium for other energy forms.
  • Channelled Writing, Thoughtforms and Art – learn how to open yourself up to Divine Connection and Partnership to facilitate the glorious energies of co-creation. This is truly what it means to be Divinely Inspired. Wonderful if you are considering writing, teaching and speaking for a living.
  • Conscious Channel – learn how to open to that state of working with full consciousness, so that you are present and able to guide the flow of information, ask questions, and stay actively involved in this process. This is a natural progression from Trance Channelling and is the form Nicole uses most often.
  • Awareness Channel – A more subtle form of channeling, this is the one most commonly used by Lightworkers in the service of others. This allows you to help others in a respectful and immediate way by working with Mediumship, Guides, Angels and Beings of Light. Learn the protocols and universal laws associated with this technique.
  • Merge-Form Channelling for working with objects and places
  • Channelled healing and energy work techniques for self and others
  • Techniques for giving professional energy and psychic readings for others

Create A Foundation Of Spiritual Habits – Workshop

2012-09-01 10.32.54

“You can’t make yourself feel positive, but you can choose how to act, and if you choose right, it builds your confidence.”
~ Julien Smith, The Flinch

“Your beliefs become your thoughts,
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny.”
~ Mahatma Gandhi

 

One of the things that has been most useful in developing my psychic and intuitive abilities has been my daily spiritual practice. Each morning when I wake up I take my Medicine Bag – a bag filled with the tools I use in my morning meditations and rituals – and I sit myself somewhere to quietly greet the day.

I light a candle and some incense, I choose a crystal, I sit in meditation, after which I use a deck of oracle or tarot cards to pull one card for the day and reflect on its meaning for me. Then I write any insights in my journal. This might take me five minutes on the busiest of days, or up to an hour when I have time to go deeply into my practice.

Because all my tools are in a small bag I can take that bag everywhere with me, and I do. I have visited friends, taken business trips, gone on holidays and still carried out my daily routine. My Medicine Bag has travelled Australia, crossed the oceans, and been my companion as I have roamed the world.

No matter where I am, I am anchored by ritual and daily practice. And when the world feels particularly crazy and hard to navigate, this daily practice becomes a place for essential grounding and centering as I find my way back to my heart and to that place of love that is deep connection with spirit.

Candles by Dilara at Our Earth’s Magic

On Saturday 26 November I’ll be teaching a hands-on workshop, showing you how to create and customise your own Medicine Bag. I’ll show you how to decorate and personalise a plain bag, to infuse it with your energies and intentions.

Then we’ll fill the bag with tools, and I will show you how to use them.

You’ll be given a beautiful hand-crafted candle and your own incense.

You’ll be given a crystal, hand-chosen for you by me.

You’ll be given a journal and shown how to dedicate this journal to your journey-work.

You’ll be taught some simple meditations.

I’ll connect you with your Guides through meditation – and then send you the meditation as an MP3 when the workshop concludes.

I’ll show you how to work with tarot and oracle cards to do a simple intuitive reading for yourself, and how to reflect on this reading within your journal.

I’ll show you a range of different meditation practices using singing bowls, singing bells, mala beads and mantras.

You’ll go home with your own Medicine Bag – ready to begin your spiritual journey with your own toolkit and foundation skills.

This Brisbane workshop runs from 1pm to 4pm on Saturday 26 November. It still has just a few spaces left, but they will book up fast so please let us know if you’d like to join us. Afternoon tea will  be served. Suitable for beginners and advanced practitioners. This workshop is open to adults and children aged 15 and up.

Talisman beginnings

Make Your Own Talisman and Healing Beads – Morning Workshop – Saturday 26 November from 10am to 12pm  Just a few places left!

A Talisman is a small spiritual object which has been made with love and infused with specific energies to help attract or achieve a certain outcome. I was taught variously how to make Talismans by one of my Aboriginal Aunties, by a Native American Medicine Woman and also by a friend’s grandmother, who came from a long line of traditional healers in her culture (which is also the culture of my own ancestors).

In this workshop I will show you how to make a Talisman so that it is infused with energy, purpose and intent. I will show you how to ‘sing’ your beads into harmony with an energy or outcome.

Talisman making is a sacred act of focus and devotion for yourself or someone you care about. There will be many materials for you to choose from, but I also encourage you to bring something of your own – such as a charm, small image, feather, crystal or shell, if it has a special significance.

Healing Beads are beads that can be held or worn and which hold energies specific to your well-being. They can be used to focus on any issue or area of health and well-being for yourself or a loved one.

You will make and take home a hand-crafted Talisman and a set of Healing Beads. All materials and information will be provided. Morning tea will also be served. Suitable for beginners and advanced practitioners. This workshop is open to adults and children aged 15 and up.

Cost: $120  – Please RSVP to Dana at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com 

Can’t get to Brisbane? Contact Dana and ask to be put on our online workshops mailing list – as both of these courses will go online in early 2017.

Medicine For The Soul

polychrome jasper meaning

Polychrome Jasper Heart in earth, sea and sky colours – from my own collection!

“Put ‘im in your bag. Dis lil stone, dis leaf, dis feather. Dem all medicines for you. Your special tings dat make your heart glad. Make your soul remember. Dat good for you. Proper medicine.”

~ Aunty

 

This morning, very early, I woke with a heavy heart. I felt the weight upon it of world events. Of a friend I know who is about to be given devastating health news. Of another friend who is finally reaping the legacy of a genetic illness which is ramping up to destroy life as he has known it.

Those feelings were so big that I could hardly get out of bed. But I did, and I grabbed my Medicine Bag and then sat on cushions on the floor of my lounge room in the quiet pre-dawn.

I lit a candle, listening to the scratch of the matchtip on the rough box end, and then the sudden hiss and flare of the flame. I lit a stick of incense. I spread a cloth on the floor in front of me.

From my bag I took my singing bowl and placed it on the cloth. My mala beads went there too. From my bag I took a few favourite crystals. I held the stones for a moment and then placed them on the cloth. Then I took up the singing bowl and settled into meditation.

Nicole Cody Tibetan Singing Bowl

I let each wave of sound radiate love out into the world. Peace. Calm. Hope. Unity. Love. I breathed this energy in and out. I travelled it with the waves of sound and with my intent.

I sent healing to my friends and their families and carers. And to mine. I sent healing and love to each of you.

I offered up my prayers.

I meditated until a profound peace and reconnection to love was all that I could feel, then returned the bowl to the floor.

I sat a little more in this energy of peace and love, and then reached into my bag for my cards. The room was light enough to see now. I drew a card for the day (these cards are so old and worn and dear to me that I need only hazily glimpse the picture for it to be clear in my mind) and reflected on the meaning for me.

I wrote in my journal.

2015-03-18 06.38.17

I sat awhile with one of my crystals. I packed everything back into my bag, ready for tomorrow, or whenever else I may need these tools again.

And then I got up, refreshed in body and spirit, put the kettle on, and began my day.

That is what my Medicine Bag does for me. Within it is a physical space, a spiritual space, a healing space – which I can unpack and use at any time.

The ritual connects me to my Aboriginal Aunties, to my Grandmothers and to myself. It centers me in love. It reminds me to live from love, and from my heart, no matter what is happening in the wider world. It gifts me guidance and perspective. It brings me back to what matters when my mind has run away with its worries.

My Medicine Bag

On Saturday 26 November I’ll be running an afternoon workshop in Brisbane to teach you how to create your own Medicine Bag. I will give you the basic spiritual foundation practices to use this bag the way I use my own.

I will also cover the practices and tools that can help you to develop a regular spiritual practice and strengthen your intuitive and psychic ability. We will look at the fundamentals of working with crystals, connecting with your guides, simple meditation techniques, using oracle and tarot cards to give yourself an intuitive reading, and some foundation metaphysical principles for raising your vibration. These are all the things I used at the beginning of my own journey, and that have led me to where I am today.

There are just a few places left – more details here.

Online Option: If you’re not able to attend, but would like to learn how to craft and use your own Medicine Bag, please contact Dana, my wonderful PA at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com and ask to be put on our Medicine Bag mailing list. I’m currently putting this together as an online course with an optional materials package (of the things we will be using in our physical workshop). We’ll let you know as soon as the course is available, and those of you on our list will get a special discount!

Here’s a sneak peek of some of our Medicine Bag workshop materials (if you look closely you’ll see oodles of crystals in the corner too!), as well as my friend Carly who has been looking after me as I recover from my recent surgery (And I’m doing VERY well, thank you ❤ ) and helping me with my workshop preparation.

The Writing Talisman with Crow and Magpie Energies that I made for my friend Carly. This Writing Talisman is an encouragement for Carly to share her personal story. An entreatment to go deeper, to be brave in sharing truth, at gifting this story in a way that might illuminate the way for others. The feathers are supported by banded red and black agate, bone, marble, black tourmaline, rosewood and a few chakra stones that support communication and flow of words.

 

Saturday 26 November – Afternoon Workshop 1pm to 4pm

Make Your Own Medicine Bag and Learn Foundation Spiritual Practices – A Medicine Bag is a bag which contains personal items that focus your attention on your spiritual and metaphysical development. When we make or embellish our own Medicine Bag we infuse it with energy, purpose and ritual. It creates a powerful intention that helps to support and grow our spiritual practice. This is all about practical mysticism!

I have my own Medicine Bag that comes everywhere with me, and that enables me to create a spiritual and sacred space where ever I might be, on any corner of the planet.

In this workshop you will embellish your own Medicine Bag (the bag is already made but you will be restyling it to suit your energies), according to age-old mystical traditions. I will also cover the practices and tools that can help you to develop a regular spiritual practice and strengthen your intuitive and psychic ability. We will look at the fundamentals of working with crystals, connecting with your guides, simple meditation techniques, using oracle and tarot cards to give yourself an intuitive reading, and some foundation metaphysical principles for raising your vibration. These are all the things I used at the beginning of my own journey, and that have led me to where I am today.

You will create and take home your own Medicine Bag. You will be given a substantial range of tools and materials to go into your Medicine Bag to create a strong foundation practice for your ongoing psychic and metaphysical development. Afternoon tea will also be served. Suitable for beginners and advanced practitioners. This workshop is open to adults and children aged 15 and up.

Cost: $240  – Please RSVP to Dana at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com 

Note: If you choose to attend both Saturday workshops, total cost will be discounted to $320.

My Medicine Bag

My own Medicine Bag, which holds my journal, oracle cards, crystals, singing bowl and other goodies that are only for my personal use.

 

Sunday 27 November – One Day Workshop 10am to 4pm

Spiritual ‘Business Round Table’ – Did you know that one of my superpowers is business? If  you have a business that you would like to launch or grow in 2017, this might be the workshop for you.

In the morning we’ll be looking at defining your product or service, and your target audience. We’ll also look at how to work with your Guides and intuition to really align your business with your natural talents and skills. We’ll examine the practicalities of connecting with your tribe, and how that can look. We’ll learn how to use spiritual energies as well as management skills to set your intention and put your dreams in motion. We’ll look at what business model might suit you best.

In the afternoon we’re going to have a ’round table’ where we workshop your biggest problem or idea around your business. I will give EVERY participant attention and advice, so we are keeping these numbers small. You’ll also need to fill out a small survey before the workshop so that I can do some preparation for each of you before the workshop and make my material relevant to your particular needs.

Workshop includes lunch and worksheets, plus Nicole’s personal preparation session for each of you in the days before the course begins.

Cost: $550  – Please RSVP to Dana at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com

Pop-Up Shop Cancellation and Workshops Turned into Webinars

“What would you do if you couldn’t do what you want?’-“Something else.”
~ Marty Rubin

 

Hi Lovelies,

Just a quick heads-up to let you know that my Pop-Up Shop and Events won’t be going ahead this weekend. I’m home, waiting for surgery, and being as stylish as a girl can be when she’s wearing pyjamas 24/7.

The thing is, I’d put so much work into this weekend that I’m postponing. And they were going to be FABULOUS workshops!!!

So, I’m thinking that I will re-engineer them as webinars or home-study courses (delivered online or to your email), or a combination of both. Because it seems a waste to not use all of this good work. This also means that all of you who weren’t able to make it to Brisbane will now have a chance to participate.

Here is the run-down of what the postponed workshops were all about:

Spiritual Foundations – This one day workshop will cover the practices and tools that can help you to develop a regular spiritual practice and strengthen your intuitive and psychic ability. We will look at the fundamentals of working with crystals, connecting with your guides, simple meditation techniques, using oracle and tarot cards to give yourself or others an intuitive reading, and some foundation metaphysical principles for raising your vibration. These are all the things I used at the beginning of my own journey. I’ll also show you how to move past limiting self-doubt and into a place of connection and flow.

Spiritual ‘Business Round Table’ – Did you know that one of my superpowers is business? If  you have a business that you would like to launch or to grow, this might be the workshop for you. In the morning we’ll be looking at defining your product or service, and your target audience. We’ll also look at how to work with your Guides and intuition to really align your business with your natural talents and skills. We’ll examine the practicalities of connecting with your tribe, and how that can look. We’ll learn how to use spiritual energies as well as management skills to set your intention and put your dreams in motion. We’ll look at what business model might suit you best. In the afternoon we’re going to have a ’round table’ where we workshop your biggest problem or idea around your business. I will give EVERY participant attention and advice, so we are keeping these numbers small. You’ll also need to fill out a small survey before the workshop so that I can do some preparation for each of you before the workshop and make my material relevant to your particular needs.

 

If you’re interested in either of these workshops, please let my wonderful PA Dana know at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com and she’ll place you on our mailing list. That way we can let you know as soon as I’ve pulled all the details together.

Sorry to disappoint those of you who were looking forward to coming along, but I promise that the courses I offer in place of these workshops will be great!

Much love to you,

Nicole ❤ xx

Choosing your Daily Oracle Card:

Use your favourite oracle or tarot deck to give you some intuitive guidance. If you don’t have access to a deck, the following web pages will allow you to choose a daily oracle card online:

Online Oracle Cards:

Colette Baron Reid’s Oracles – choose a deck, and then choose your card

Doreen Virtue’s Oracles – scroll down to the part of the page that says ‘Get your Reading’ and then choose the Simple Reading one card option

 

Take a favourite stone or crystal, and complete this short guided meditation:

Hold your stone in your cupped hands, close your eyes, and slow your breathing. Bring white light into your body until you feel peaceful and calm. Then bring white light into the crystal too. Allow yourself to connect to the stone. You may feel it tingle, or visualise a colour in your mind’s eye. When you are ready, open your eyes. Keep your stone near you, and hold it when you write.

 

Choose the question below that corresponds to the chakra you have chosen:

  1. Green – Heart – How can I use my ability to love, care and support in the world?
  2. Yellow – Solar Plexus – How can I use what I know to guide or lead others?
  3. Purple – Third Eye – How can I use my imagination or skills as a visionary in positive ways?
  4. Red – Base – How can I help others to build a strong foundation?
  5. White – Crown – How can best I use my intuitive wisdom and my problem-solving ability in service to others?
  6. Sky Blue – Throat – How can I best use my gift for expression and communication to bring clarity, justice or joy?
  7. Orange – Sacral Chakra – Which creative idea or project is best for me to work on right now?

Now shuffle your cards, thinking about the colour and chakra you have chosen today. Silently ask the question to yourself that corresponds to the chakra you have chosen.

When you have shuffled the cards and they feel ‘done’, select just one card. How you choose that card is up to you. You can split the deck. You could take the top or bottom card. You could fan the cards out and take one from the array.

Place the card face up in front of you.

Clear your mind by closing your eyes and taking one deep breath in and then out. Open your eyes again. Take a minute and look at the picture on the oracle or tarot card.

What stands out for you? Is it an image or a colour? Is it a number or a word? What are your first impressions?

Write these down in your journal.

Now let’s go a little deeper. What feelings or words does this card evoke in your mind when you think about the card and its images in relation to your question. Take five minutes and just write some stream-of-consciousness thoughts down. Don’t censor or judge them. Trust the process.

Finally, read back over what you have written.

Expect that more insights may come up for you during the day. Write anything important down in your journal so that you can continue to reflect upon it.

See you tomorrow! Lots of love, Nicole xx
