Retreat Success and Finally – a Day Off!


“ When you prepare for something big in your life and work towards it with such intensity, it takes confidence to take a day off and have peace with it. ” 

 J.R. Rim

Hi Everyone!

This is Chelsi and I am hijacking Nicole’s blog.

Kidding aside, I would like to tell everyone that after a very successful retreat (congratulations to everyone who finished Connect to Your Calling Retreat and Mentoring Program!), Nicole will be taking a day off today to sleep in and she is sending all her love to you!

Love Lots!

The Definition Of Courage


“This, ultimately, is the lesson to come away with from our brief foray into the world of experimental psychology: To build your working life around the experience of flow produced by deep work is a proven path to deep satisfaction.” ~ Cal Newport

Hello, Lovelies!

From today I am leading the ‘Connect To Your Calling’ Retreat for the next 6 days. It’s a deeply immersive experience for the participants, where they are voluntarily cutting off from the outside world and all modern technological distractions for the period of our time together.

We’ll be diving deep into the metaphysical, as I help my students gain clarity around who they are and why they are here. It’s BIG soul work. Deep work. And possibly life-changing work for some.

It’s a course that requires curiosity and courage – my students will be led to stand in front of themselves and truly see themselves as they are, and as they can be, free from limited thinking and the contrivances and mis-beliefs that have kept them safe and stagnant in their ordinary lives. The techniques I will teach them are those I have been refining and working with in my own life over the past thirty years. I know they work, and I know the results that can come from connecting into the deeper truth within yourself.

Change, and opening to possibility is always hard. But I also know that a time comes when it is harder to stay still then to begin moving, even if that new direction takes you far away from everything you have previously thought you knew about yourself.

After our time together I’ll be mentoring the group intensely for the next three months as we work to cement the learnings that will be gathered in Retreat. I’m excited to see what will come from this mentoring and how these brave students will then go out into the world to follow their Calling and share their gifts.

I know that not all of you are able to travel across the world to be at one of my Retreats, and this content is so important. If you would like me to look at turning the ‘Connect to your Calling’ work into an online course and mentoring group please contact Chelsi at chelsi@cauldronsandcupcakes.com or by commenting below. If there is enough interest I will work to create something for the second half of this year for you.

Much love, Nicole ❤ xx

An Aware and Connected 2019 – Let Me Show You How


“You find peace not by rearranging the circumstances of your life, but by realising who you are at the deepest level.” ~ Eckhart Tolle

The New Year is almost here. (In fact, her energies showed up on December 26!) 2019 is the start of an important four-year cycle of growth and evolution, and I am determined to do all I can to support you to become more intuitive and aware, clearer about your direction, and equipped with the skills to embark on your own spiritual journey.

Here are some of the ways I’ll be doing that:

  1. Right here on my blog, with ongoing posts. I’ll be discussing the 2019 energies tomorrow, January’s energies on the 2nd and I have a New Year Oracle for you on the 3rd.
  2. With my new Podcast, which will be launching soon – stay tuned for updates.
  3. With personal consultations; for life direction, health, and business (email us to go on the waiting list, or fast-track a 2019 New Year Positioning Reading by joining our YOM Membership Program for VIP access to booking priority).
  4. With my YOM 2019 Planner and online YOM Membership space and courses. This membership space is morphing into an Academy of Learning this year, so get in with us on the ground floor. (Details here in our store  or read about the Planner and Membership here )
  5. With new online courses and mentoring that will go live later this year.

I also have three beautiful Residential Retreats on offer for 2019:

Connect To Your Calling – A Retreat (Feb 15 to 20) followed by a three-month online mentoring program to help you connect to and clarify your Calling.

I know that many of you have incarnated into this lifetime SPECIFICALLY because you have a calling to be of service. You feel that calling deep in your heart. It’s a pull you can’t ignore and YOU FEEL READY TO STEP UP AND BE OF SERVICE in some way that only you can do.

On our 6-day residential retreat, followed by the three-month online group mentoring program I am going to show you how to use advanced Channelling techniques, shamanic techniques using Sacred Geometry, and personal journeymaking rituals and skills to help you:

  • clarify your calling
  • learn how to receive your own channelled guidance about your calling so that you can continue to deepen this journey and your understanding of yourself and your path long after Retreat is finished
  • how to define a path for actioning your calling in the wider world

All the details are here.


Temple of Light ™  Shamanic Meditation Retreat – August 2 to 8

This isn’t an ordinary meditation course. This retreat is an opportunity to connect more deeply with your Soul Energy and Guides than you might ever have thought possible. Years later, prrevious participants tell me that this is still their favourite meditation technique, and that it has proven transformative for them.

If you are interested in developing psychic or metaphysical skills, creating healing energy, or gaining access to creative or financial flow, or if you’re stuck and don’t know how to move forward, this is the retreat for you. It is suitable for complete beginners and advanced practitioners too.

Temple of Light ™  is a very special meditation that I practice weekly. It’s not just a meditation, it’s a destination – a series of interconnected rooms with differing functions. It’s one of the things that has most helped me to come into my own intuitive and psychic abilities, and that has enabled me to deal with health problems, pain and suffering when there was no other help available. I’ll guide you through this engaging and fulfilling meditation and then provide recordings to help you continue your meditation journey when you get home.

You can read more about a previous Temple of Light ™  Retreat here.

We already have a waiting list for this Retreat, so if you’d like to be on our pre-release notification list email us at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com so we can add you in.

Platform – Book and Course Writing Retreat, November 23 to 28 plus online mentoring pre and post course.

A nurturing, inspiring and productive week of designing, writing and creating. This Retreat and its pre and post-course online tuition and mentoring will help you to create the outline and content for your Book and/or course, as well as establishing a clear platform for promotion and connection with your audience.

If you’ve got a story or teaching within you, this is the course to help you birth that message successfully into the world.

Plus we’ll have time for some Byron Bay adventures and self-care pampering. Seriously, it’s going to be AMAZING, and it’s something we’ve been working to put together for you for about two years.

Email us at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com if you’re interested in being on our pre-release list for this event.

I’m Still Waiting For You To Join Us at Connect To Your Calling!


“I believe there’s a calling for all of us. I know that every human being has value and purpose. The real work of our lives is to become aware. And awakened. To answer the call.” 
~ Oprah Winfrey

In February 2019 I am holding a Retreat here in beautiful Byron Bay, Australia. It’s a retreat to teach participants how to use accelerated Channelling techniques and Sacred Geometry and many other shamanic practices so that they can connect to their Calling, and then navigate life with a strong connection to their own soul wisdom and to guidance from their Higher Self, Guides and other positive energies.

It’s an accelerated course that starts with a six-day retreat and is then supported by three months of mentoring and activities to deepen the practices learned on Retreat and to keep clarifying the details of the Calling that lives in your heart. You can be a complete beginner for this work, even though the teachings are advanced. What matters most is that knowledge inside you that you have a calling and that it’s time to work out what that calling is and then live from that place of insight and awareness.

The course is full, but I’ve held one spot.

Just one spot.

You see, I know that we’re missing someone.

Someone who didn’t see the post about the retreat (yes, the course filled from one blog post). Someone who is meant to be joining us but hasn’t heard yet. 

You.

So, I’m waiting for you and I’m holding that place. Because it’s time. It’s time to step up and answer that calling, and I’m here to help you do that. I’m here to help you live the life you came here to live. A life of service, fuelled by passion and commitment, and of shining your light and using your gifts to help others somehow.

You can access the original blog post about this course and retreat here.

Are You Ready To Connect To Your Calling? Residential Retreat and Mentoring Program 2019

Much love, Nicole xx

Are You Ready To Connect To Your Calling? Residential Retreat and Mentoring Program 2019

“I believe there’s a calling for all of us. I know that every human being has value and purpose. The real work of our lives is to become aware. And awakened. To answer the call.” 
~ Oprah Winfrey

This year my August Accelerated Channelling Retreat and Intensive Mentoring Program sold out in one day. Such was the interest that we decided to run the exact same course in February next year.

I promised people we would run the course again and then we asked everyone to wait to apply until we put up the new Expression of Interest and Course Outline. It should have been a simple thing to do, even though we have had to make adjustments to the 2019 program price because of cost increases from our suppliers. But I’ve kept holding off on announcing and filling the course. And I trusted that even though I didn’t know WHY I was holding off, that I needed to heed that intuition.

I became very ill with a virus and severe chest infection in late October and then spent all of November in bed. Among other complications, I lost my vision and I lost my voice and in the end all I could do was meditate. November was a powerful month for metaphysical work. During my many days of meditation I experienced the most intense spiritual journey I’ve had for many years and at the end of that time I understood that I needed to rework the February Channelling Retreat. I received very specific information to share on that retreat and in the supporting online course afterwards.

So, I’m pleased to announce that in addition to the existing Channelling and Sacred Geometry techniques I will teach on Retreat in February, this Retreat and Mentoring has a new focus. Announcing:

Connect To Your Calling – Residential Retreat and Mentoring Program

The next four years 2019 – 2022 are significant for our personal and spiritual evolution, as well as for the evolution of our planet. I know that many of you have incarnated into this lifetime SPECIFICALLY because you have a calling to be of service. You feel that calling deep in your heart. It’s a pull you can’t ignore and YOU FEEL READY TO STEP UP AND BE OF SERVICE in some way that only you can do.

On our 6-day residential retreat, followed by the three-month online group mentoring program I am going to show you how to use advanced Channelling techniques, shamanic techniques using Sacred Geometry, and personal journeymaking rituals and skills to help you:

  • clarify your calling
  • learn how to receive your own channelled guidance about your calling so that you can continue to deepen this journey and your understanding of yourself and your path long after Retreat is finished
  • how to define a path for actioning your calling in the wider world

Channelling isn’t just about connecting into energies and wisdom outside of yourself. It’s also about connecting more deeply to your own wisdom and soul experience. At its most pure channelling is a shamanic practice that will render you more authentically yourself, burning away the contrivances and insecurities that you’ve been hiding behind.

I designed this Intensive Retreat and Mentoring Program to give you the best possible support and experience for your spiritual journey. This course is all about getting you ready to do the work you came here to do or advancing your existing work in the world. If you’re ready and have been waiting for the teacher to appear, here I am.

Throughout our time together I’ll tune you up to these post-2012 energies and actively accelerate your psychic, spiritual and personal growth by teaching you a range of practices and techniques to open you to channelling, to your Higher Self, and to your Oversoul.

Give me six days of your life in early 2019, and a few short, regular, guided sessions each week for the following three months and I’ll take you to places you’d never thought possible in your metaphysical practice, enabling you to connect deeply to your calling and become clear about how to live that calling in the wider world. The practices and techniques I teach you will continue to grow and guide you long after our time together ends.

There is no more time. We have to step up. We have to be who we came here to be.

In your heart you know that’s true too. You feel that urgency. You’re ready. All you need is a place to start, and some support for that journey only you can take.

If you’re ready for the next stage of your spiritual journey CLICK HERE to access more information. If you can’t access the link Click Below to download the file:

Then when you’re ready CLICK HERE to fill in your Expression of Interest.

But please act quickly because this course has limited places, a quarter of them are already allocated, and it will sell out.

Update: There are TWO places left, and I’m waiting for confirmation on one of those so please get back to us as soon as you can.

Update: This retreat is fully subscribed. If you’d like to go on the waiting list to hear about future retreats or if you’d like us to convert this residential retreat and mentoring course to a fully online mentoring course please contact Chelsi at chelsi@cauldronsandcupcakes.com to express your interest.

I’m looking forward to working with you, Nicole xx

Announcing Our New Membership Group!

 

“Home is a notion that only nations of the homeless fully appreciate and only the uprooted comprehend.” 
Wallace Stegner

“Travel does not exist without home… If we never return to the place we started, we would just be wandering, lost. Home is a reflecting surface, a place to measure our growth and enrich us after being infused with the outside world.” 
Josh Gates

When I was younger, and then when I was going through my own spiritual and psychic awakening in my early twenties, all I yearned for was someplace to belong. Somewhere where I could be myself, somewhere I could be in the company of others just like me, where I could speak about my feelings and experiences, my fears and insecurities, my dreams and hopes – and where, in that place, people would nod their heads in acceptance and understanding.

I yearned for a group like that my entire life but didn’t find one until I created that group for myself. That group is the YOM group, grown out of a loyal band of souls who had already been students or readers of my blog and who encouraged me along in the creation of my very first Planner.

It’s a place where I can be fully myself, with all of my mystical capacity and all of my human vulnerability. It’s a place where you can belong as well.

If you’re hungering for a safe and supportive place that will help you to grow spiritually, if you are intuitive or empathic or highly sensitive or psychic – or think you might be – this is the group for you.

Are you ready for a supportive and friendly community of like-minded souls? Are you ready for friendship and emotional connection? Are you ready to learn more about yourself, the energetic world, and how to live a more fulfilling and meaningful life?

If your answer is yes then come join the YOM group!

The next four years 2019 – 2022 are significant for our personal and spiritual evolution, as well as for the evolution of our planet. I thought long and hard about the best way to support your growth over that time and have decided that beefing up the content in my membership area was the best way to help you grow, adapt and step more fully into your authenticity and the life-path you chose for yourself pre-birth. You’ll see this membership group evolve into an Academy of Learning over the next twelve months so that my team and I (human and energetic) can serve you the best way I know how.

My membership space is a place where I can walk you through the year, explain all the aspects of the month ahead and the crystals we’ve chosen, where I do special webinars with my tribe to teach you new skills and share important information, and where I channel with my guides in live webinars, and answer your questions and provide general support. I often jump into our private Facebook group to pull cards and bring through messages for our members too. And did I mention what an incredible, loving and supportive space our YOM Community is? There is real friendship and belonging there. It’s a safe space, a heart space, and a place for great personal transformation. I totally heart it!

The format of YOM is constantly evolving. In 2019 you will have access to the foundation YOM online course as well as twelve free additional mini-courses and live events over the next year as well as our wonderful private Facebook group.

All our membership offerings launch tomorrow at 6am, Brisbane Australia time. There will be yearly or monthly subscription options. Our Planner, Mala, and a range of physical support materials and packs and online courses will also go live then too. And there’s time for them to get to you before Christmas as our Elvish helpers (Trish, Ben, Chelsi, Love, the dogs and me) get ready to stuff packages and race them to the post (complete with extra Christmas treats because we love you!).

I can’t wait to welcome you, and share all of this wonderful energy and support with you!

Doors open tomorrow, 6am. I’ll have links to everything on tomorrow’s blog.

Biggest hugs and love, Nicole  xoxo

Thanks for your understanding and patience.

A Gorgeous Assortment of Crystals!

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

 

I’m surrounded by crystals right now.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Guided Meditation and Advice for Sensitive Souls and Emerging Psychics

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

 

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

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

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

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

If you’re sensitive energetically then you are bound to be sensitive in other areas of your life.  This is especially true if you are going through a process of spiritual or psychic awakening. At a time of awakening, energies and abilities that have been dormant within you begin to assert themselves in your life.  This can be quite a turbulent and confusing time.

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

  • Rest.  When we’re growing and changing, rest is one of the best gifts we can give ourselves.
  • Avoid crowded places such as shopping centres and football games when you are feeling particularly sensitive or energetically vulnerable.
  • Avoid difficult relationships and people who drain, upset or unbalance you.  Limit contact with the crazy-makers in your life.
  • Eat well.  Favour organic foods, with an emphasis on fresh, local produce, with plenty of leafy green vegetables and root vegetables, rice, pulses and yoghurt. Avoid processed food and sugar. Some people may need to avoid meat at this time.  Others may need meat to ground them.  Listen to your body.  If you’re especially sensitive avoid wheat as well.
  • Avoid alcohol, drugs and stimulants.
  • Take a good powdered magnesium supplement.  Your muscles and nervous system use magnesium to relax and it we also burn it like rocket fuel when we are engaging in energy work and psychic activity.
  • Drink plenty of fresh, clean water.
  • Use yoga, qi gong or tai chi to ground you and move energy through your body.
  • Spend time in nature.
  • Spend time on your own, exploring the things that interest you.
  • Avoid chemicals in your cleaning and personal care products. Avoid places that have a strong artificial or chemical energy.
  • Use natural and alternate therapies to help clear and support your body.
  • Meditate.
  • Pray, and talk with God.
  • Explore vibrational therapies such as bush or bach flower essences, crystals, music, colour and aromatherapy (Want to know about my favourite essential oils for spiritual support and how to get them? Email me at channelnc@gmail.com)
  • Trust, look for support and know that things do get easier over time.

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

Love and Light, ❤ Nicole xx
