Right now my house is groaning with boxes full of crystals, oracle and tarot cards, singing bowls and bells, prayer shawls, journals, incense and smudge kits, and all manner of helpful and lovely tools and treats. Every surface is full.

When Dana and Ben and I packed up all of the crystals for the YOM 2018 packs and tomorrow’s workshops we literally ate our lunch squeezed between all the boxes in the lounge room.

We didn’t mind. It was a fun and productive day!

The thing I am most excited about today, besides seeing you and all those lovely hugs and cups of tea, is that I will have hard copies of our Year of ME (YOM) Planner! Oh my goodness I am so proud of this year’s edition. My team have done an incredible job to get this to you, and every page is filled with love and our intentions that 2018 be a kind, good and expansive year for you. Here’s a sneak peek of its loveliness…

Can’t wait to see you all. And it’s not too late if you want to book in to any of our events. Just contact Dana, my hard-working and magnificently organised PA, whose details are in this post.

For those of you who can’t make it, all of the Planner options and membership details for 2018 will be on my blog shop tomorrow.
Much love, Nicole   xx

A Sneak Peek Inside our YOM 2018 Planner

 

“That’s the thing with handmade items. They still have the person’s mark on them, and when you hold them, you feel less alone.” 
Aimee Bender

Yesterday one of our Cauldrons and Cupcakes community asked if she could have a look inside our Year of ME Planner for 2018.

I’m so darned proud of this Planner. It’s been months in the making, and my team and I poured love and care into every page. This Planner will guide you through the year ahead, month by month, week by week.

Our hard copies of the Planner will be ready for collection from the printer on Thursday afternoon, so the following pictures were snapped late last night on my phone – they are from A5 copies printed on my home printer in draft mode as we worked through proof after proof to make the Planner as good as we could possibly make it. These pictures don’t do our Planner justice, but they will give you an idea of what’s inside!

I designed my own Planner years ago, when I couldn’t find one that did all the things I wanted it to. It’s called the Year of ME, and the ME actually stands for Manifesting Energies – it’s not a Planner for decadent and over-the-top self-indulgence (although it could be if that was your heart’s desire), it’s a Planner for helping you to create more room in your life for the things that matter to you, for making some quiet time for spiritual growth and connection, for charting a practical path to achieving goals and dreams, for celebrating the pleasures of an ordinary life and for cradling and supporting you when the going gets rough or when life is crazy busy.

My Planner starts with a review of the year that has been, because we learn and grow when we can look back on things with eyes of compassion and openness, rather than judgement. Then we plan the year ahead, and we begin to use tarot or oracle cards as companions on our journey, helping us to receive insights and messages from our own wise souls that will make the path ahead better lit and easier to follow. There are also full year calendars in the front of the Planner for 2018 and 2019.

The Planner explains the energies of 2018, and how to best use them. Then it guides you Quarter by Quarter, month by month. Each Quarter has a theme. Each Month has its own energies and I also explain the best crystals to use to support you through that month.

 

 

Every month has a full-page calendar showing the moon cycles and with room to write in, and every week there is space for your card of the week, for practicing gratitude and a mini meditation, and then a day planner to help you keep your time organised.

There are simple monthly financial sheets to help you keep track of your money and financial position, as well as tips on how to manage your money better.

 

At the end of every Quarter there is a review where you can look over the previous three months, learn, grow and then plan the next Quarter so that it reflects your dreams and goals.

That’s the essence of the Planner, but there’s so much more – there are simple systems and processes to help you choose areas of focus and goals for the year, and then how to break these down into measurable steps that you can actually achieve. And there’s space for you to deepen your spiritual practice and inner journeywork.

 

The Planner will be available for digital download as a PDF in A4 format for $33.00 AUD (that’s $25 USD). You could print it out at home or at your local copy shop.

The hard-copy Planner will be A5, spiral bound, with protective clear covers and a heavy card cover and back. The cost for the hard-copy Planner is $45 AUD (that’s $34 USD), plus postage if you can’t get to our pop up shop or pick up from Brisbane.

We also have a wonderful year-long membership and community that supports the Planner. For my YOM (that’s what we call the Year of ME) community we have a learning platform and year-long access to materials, webinars and other goodies that augment the Planner. We also have a very active private Facebook group, where we share and support each other, and where I also host regular Facebook Live events. Cost for a whole year of goodness is just $330 AUD (that’s $250 USD) and includes digital download of the Planner as well as some other surprises. I love my YOMMERS and take good care of them – they get offered all of our courses, retreats and events before we open them to the General Public, and they also get discounts on many of my offerings too.

And of course there are our crystal packs to support the Planner. Here’s a sneak peek at those too. There are 24 stones in the pack. We only have limited availability of these because they have all been charged up by me in a grid at my farm, and also include stones from important grids in 2012 and 2016. The cost of these packs is $197 AUD (only $150 USD) plus postage.

All of these goodies will be available for purchase at my Pop-Up Shop in Brisbane on 15 and 16 December, and they will go live online in the shop here on my blog on Saturday 16 December.

I hope this post answers some of your questions. This is the third edition of our Planner, after it was launched in 2016. 92% of our YOMMERS (Year of ME peeps) came back from the first to the second year – we’re a strong and vital community, and we welcome you to come join us!

Much love, and big hugs, Nicole ❤ xx

PS – Every year for as long as I can remember, my mother has announced ‘This year is going to be my year – the year of ME’. I’m sure she thinks this Planner has been named for her. Please don’t tell her it stands for Manifesting Energies!

LOL – Love you, Mum xx

My Exciting New Card Spread Workshop

“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 Micha’el Leventhal

 

I’m so excited about my upcoming pop up shop and workshops here in Brisbane on Friday 15 and Saturday 16 September. (You can get all the details here)

Today I’d like to tell you a little bit more about my Intuitive Oracle/Tarot Card Reading Class  which will be held from 1 to 4pm on Saturday 16. 

At this workshop I’ll be piloting a copy of my new Card Spread Workbook for 2018, and the participants will all get a working copy. Doesn’t the cover look gorgeous!

 

In this workshop I will teach you how to choose and prepare a deck of cards to work with as your intuitive soul journey companions.

You will receive a copy of my new Soul Journey 2018 Card Spread Workbook and a Journal.

Using the Card Spread Workbook I’ll show you how to attune to your deck, and how to do a range of simple and more complex card spreads for asking questions, gaining clarity and perspective and finding guidance. It’s a workshop that will suit absolute beginners and people who’ve been using cards for a while.

I won’t be teaching you the traditional way of reading tarot cards – I’ll be showing you how to use any tarot or oracle deck to make a deep connection to your intuition and higher self, as well as being a way to connect with your Guides, Angels and Universal Energy.

In over 35 years of active and mindful psychic development, using meditation, journalling, cards and crystals as tools, I have refined many techniques that I now teach to help you to use these same tools effectively and well.

During our workshop I will also show you how to choose and use a Crystal Keeper for your cards.

You’ll do a foundation reading for yourself, and learn how to go deeper into this soul work with journalling and meditation.

We will look at the fundamentals of connecting with your Higher Self and 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 take home your own Soul Journey 2018 Card Spread Workbook, a Journal and a crystal keeper.  Please bring your favourite tarot or oracle deck and a special crystal to task as your 2018 Guiding Stone. Bring them from home or choose from the selection at Nicole’s Pop Up Shop. You’ll also need something to write with. Afternoon tea will be served. Suitable for beginners and advanced practitioners. This workshop is open to adults only (or those 16 and above whose parents deem this a suitable workshop for them!)

Bookings Essential!

Cost: $165  – Please RSVP to Dana at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com 

Want me to turn this into a home study or online course? Please let me know in the comments and I will organise one for early 2018.

Biggest hugs and love, Nicole  xx

Pop Up Shop and Brisbane Events Reminder

 

“Let go of certainty. The opposite isn’t uncertainty. It’s openness, curiosity and a willingness to embrace paradox, rather than choose up sides. The ultimate challenge is to accept ourselves exactly as we are, but never stop trying to learn and grow.” 
~  Tony Schwartz

Right now I can barely move around my little farm house for boxes of crystals and journals and singing bowls and other treasures.

I’m readying them all for our final event of the year – our Christmas Pop Up Shop, channelling evening and workshops. They’ll be held on Friday 15 and Saturday 16 December at St Colomb’s Church Hall,  23 Victoria St, Clayfield. That’s in Brisbane, QLD, Australia.

We’d love to see you there!

Pop Up Shop:

Friday 15 December from 2pm to 6.00pm 

Saturday 16 December from 10am to 4pm. 

Come along and have a cup of tea with us while you view my beautiful range of hand-chosen crystals, singing bowls, oracle and tarot cards, prayer shawls and pashminas, crystal jewellery, incense, journals, jewelry and much more. Our 2018 Year of ME Planner hard copies (I know!) crystals for the year and membership packs will also be available. (PS – ME stands for Manifesting Energies! This is not a planner of self-indulgence, it’s a planner for personal empowerment!)

One of my suppliers has just delivered me the most amazing crystals from Tibet. I’m sitting in meditation with them now to channel their purposes so they’ll all be ready for you. I haven’t been this excited about stones or seen stones of this quality in a very long time. (Most of my stock is decades old, and I have a shed FULL of rocks, as my friends and poor husband who has to lug them all around will testify!)

I’ll be on hand on Friday and at selected times on Saturday to answer all of your questions, and to give advice on the selection and use of crystals. Great gift ideas for Christmas, and I’ll have some very special stones from my personal collection as well!

I’ve also unearthed a wide range of clusters, double terminators and towers – all of which suit the 2018 energies – as well as a great selection of stones to choose from for your 2018 stone.

No need to RSVP for the Pop Up Shop – just turn up and say hi. We’d love to see you.

An Evening of Channelling With Nicole:

Friday 15 December from 6.30pm to 9pm. Come along and meet some of my guides (including some fairy friends!). They will share information about a range of topics, as well as answering questions from the audience. I rarely conduct channelling sessions outside my retreats, so this is a very special offering. Among other things Silith will be talking about the energies of 2018, Sokli will discuss some rituals and meditations to help create a fresh start for the new year, and Rollo will talk about navigating relationships and developing a sense of belonging. These nights are always entertaining, educational and often very enlightening. Each attendee will receive a small gift from Sokli and me. Please bring a plate to share afterwards for supper. Tea and coffee will be provided.

Want to bring kids? I welcome them as long as they are old enough to participate in the meditations and activities and are interested in the kind of content we’ll be sharing. As their parent you’ll know if this event is right for your child. This is not an evening suited to little children.

Cost: $35 adults, $15 children under 17 – Please RSVP to Dana at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com

Saturday Workshops 

Saturday 16 December – Morning Workshop 10am to 12pm

Vision Board and Manifesting Crystals for 2018 – A Vision Board is a board with images and energy to uplift us in the year ahead, and to remind us of what is important in our lives, and the future we wish to actively manifest for ourselves.

I will take you through a meditation and series of activities to help you become clear about your Power Word for 2018 and the values and actions that will be important to you. I will also choose an oracle card as a personal Guiding Card for each of you, and give you a mini-reading for that card. This card and energies will then be incorporated into your Vision Board.

You’ll make your own Vision Board choosing images and words that speak to you, and then take it home with you at the end of our class together.

I will also choose a crystal for each of you to charge up and program as your 2018 Manifesting Crystal and a 4 stone crystal grid for your home. I’ll take you through each step of the process of how to cleanse, activate and program the stones and how to best use them for the year ahead.

You will make and take home your Vision Board for 2018, a Manifesting Crystal and a small Crystal Grid. All materials and information will be provided. Morning tea will also be served. This workshop is open to adults and children aged 14 and up.

Strengthening our Essence

“Living is about capturing the essence of things. I go through my life every day with a vial, a vial wherein can be found precious essential oils of every kind! The priceless, fragrant oils that are the essence of my experiences, my thoughts. I walk inside a different realm from everybody else, in that I am existing in the essence of things; every time there is reason to smile, I hold out my glass vial and capture that drop of oil, that essence, and then I smile. And that is why I have smiled, and so you and I may be smiling at the same time but I am smiling because of that one drop of cherished, treasured oil that I have extracted. When I write, I find no need to memorize an idea, a plot, a sequence of things: no. I must only capture the essence of a feeling or a thought and once I have inhaled that aroma, I know that I have what I need.” 
C. JoyBell C

 

On Retreat today Sokli and I are teaching the class how to make essences. We’ll start by tuning in to our own, working in meditation with our chakras and our soul awareness. Then we’ll begin learn how to tune in to the essence in others.

An essence is the core qualities of a thing: be that plant, rock, bird, person, place, experience…

We’ll work to take the essence of a tree or a plant and put it into a bottle. Then we’ll be able to take those drops as medicine to help give us a little of the qualities and energy of that tree or plant.

We’ll also make oils that are infused with the essence of crystals and helpful herbs – things that we can rub onto our skin or breathe in or diffuse.

It’s a day of quiet alchemy and craftiness, of meditation and time in nature, and of sisterhood as we sit together making our potions and lotions.

I wonder, is this the kind of thing you’d like to learn? It is certainly something we could turn into an online course, and even into a workshop or a weekend retreat. If there’s enough interest Dana and I will put something together for next year.

Meanwhile I promise to post some pictures tomorrow so that you can see what we’ve been up to.

Thinking of you all and sending so much love,

Nicole  xx

 

Here You Are On Our Retreat Grid!

“My father used to say that stories are part of the most precious heritage of mankind.” 
~  Tahir Shah

 

As promised, here is a picture of our crystal grid here at retreat, which is very much still a work in progress.

This grid sits in the centre of our hall, on my Nana’s round lace tablecloth (it is nearly one hundred years old and was crocheted by Gran Heppell, Nana’s mum, for my Nan’s Glory Box. When I was fourteen Nana gave it to me.)

Each day we have added stones, starting with a massive Amethyst Light Library Point, and then an Elestial and a Lemurian Double terminated milky quartz, some raw rose quartz and amethyst. Later we added quartz points, raw black tourmaline, tumbled quartz, rose quartz, tourmaline in quartz, selenite, citrine, blue howlite and amazonite.

With each addition to the grid we have meditated and added energy to the stones. For every stone that represents a person or family myself or one of my students has held that stone, charged it with Light, programmed your names and our intentions into the stone, and then placed that stone in the grid with much love. If you stood here with us now, feeling this grid, you’d swoon with the overwhelming energy of it all.

My intention for this particular grid is that it allow all participants to step further and further into clarity, flow, purpose and clear life direction for 2018, supported by healthy self-esteem, intuition and life choices. I intend for the grid participants to move into abundance, in a way that magnetises them to the right relationships, opportunities and situations for their happiness and highest good. Essentially it’s a grid to help you grow, become more intuitive and emotionally satisfied, and to realise more of your full potential.

*Update: The grid is now concluded, and we thank you for taking part. All people who asked were added to the grid, and we also programmed a stone for all the YOMMERS (Year of ME Program) and one for all of our Cauldrons and Cupcakes crew – so be assured you were included!

Much love, Nicole  xx

PS – Want to buy some amazing crystals that were chosen and channelled by me, or learn some new spiritual skills? Our Brisbane Pop Up Shop and workshops will be held on 15 and 16 December. I’ll have a beautiful array of stones, as well as singing bowls, prayer shawls and journal, crystal jewelry, oracle and tarot cards and copies of my 2018 Planner and Planner  Crystal Sets.

Activities at our December event include a channelling evening with me and my Guides discussing the energies of 2018, and two workshops – one on creating a vision boards, and one for learning to use oracle and tarot cards and how to take this skill more deeply using journalling and crystals. We’d love you to come join us. More details here.

Join us in our Retreat Crystal Grid!

“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” 
~  Mother Teresa

Hello, Lovelies!

We’re starting our Working with Crystals retreat today in beautiful Byron Bay.

On every retreat I create a crystal grid in the centre of the room that holds a specific intent and energy for the group. This time I will be teaching my students how to make a grid, and they will help me to construct it.

Which is where you come in.

My intention for this particular grid is that it allow all participants to step further and further into clarity, flow, purpose and clear life direction for 2018, supported by healthy self-esteem, intuition and life choices. I intend for the grid participants to move into abundance, in a way that magnetises them to the right relationships, opportunities and situations for their happiness and highest good. Essentially it’s a grid to help you grow, become more intuitive and emotionally satisfied, and to realise more of your full potential.

We’re going to program a central crystal to hold that intention, and then place stones for individuals and groups (eg families or a community) too.

If you’d like us to include you please let us know in the comments below, or over on my facebook page.

My budding crystal masters and I will be so pleased to add you into our grid, and to hold positive space for you as we close out 2017 and welcome the energies of the new year.

I’ll post photos as it unfolds. Both the pictures here are from previous retreats, and the pictures in no way do them justice. (The curly red things in the photo below are friendship bracelets which we charged up in the grid and then wore! I wore mine for over a year before it finally fell off in the surf at Byron one morning as I went for a swim.)

Much love, Nicole  xx
