Temple of Light Meditation Retreat – Just a few places left!

“The mind can go in a thousand directions, but on this beautiful path, I walk in peace. With each step, the wind blows. With each step, a flower blooms.” 
~  Thich Nhat Hanh

 

My next residential retreat –  Temple of Light ™ Shamanic Meditation Retreat, to be held at Sangsurya, Byron Bay, Australia, from the 23rd to the 28th of September, 2017 has just a few places left. Is one of them meant for you?

There is a very special meditation that I practice on a very regular basis. It’s not just a meditation, it’s a destination – and 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 have named this technique Temple of Light ™.

This particular shamanic meditation technique arose from a gift I was given long ago – a fragment of a sacred meditation – and the result is one I have channelled, developed and tuned over decades. It supports you no matter what your religion or spiritual beliefs. This simple meditation technique allows you to access an energetic destination which is multi-layered and that last you an entire lifetime in terms of the insights, wisdoms and developments that it will help you to manifest for yourself and others. That is what the Temple of Light ™is all about. No matter what your current level of knowledge, spiritual connection or metaphysical ability, this technique will work for you.

2017 marks the first year of a brand new energetic era. In this new energy of communication, connection, clarity and collaboration I have updated this meditation significantly. I have also introduced some shamanic rituals that I have not felt to share for a very long time.

Over this six day immersive experience I will guide you through a series of meditation and self-reflection exercises designed to open you up to your wise and intuitive self, your Guides and energetic helpers, and the talents and gifts within you.

The Temple of Light ™’s energetically connected ‘rooms’ will provide you with a beautiful and sacred shamanic meditation template that will allow you to manifest immediate change in your life, and to rapidly accelerate both your personal and spiritual development. Whatever your interests, the Temple of Light ™ will provide you with what you need, customized to your own energy and purpose. It is a place of comfort and sanctuary, attuned to your exact personal needs.

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.

A shamanic journey is a journey within. This sacred journey allows us to access a level of consciousness where we can more easily tune into intuitive and spiritual guidance. We learn to listen to our bodies. We learn to listen to our hearts. We learn to listen to our souls and our own inner wisdom. We learn to listen to the Earth, and to all that surrounds us.

On such a journey we often discover things deeply buried – all manner of gifts and longings and talents neglected. We are able to practice Soul Retrieval as we connect to the aspects of ourselves that have long been lost, shamed or shunned. When we embark on a shamanic journey we gift ourselves space to become whole again, in flow again, and we experience growth and peace.

Let me tell you more…

Will one of the last places be for you?

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

And if you’d like to watch a short seven minute documentary about me and my retreats you can watch it here.

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

Much love, Nicole  ❤ xoxo

Announcing Temple of Light Meditation Retreat 23 to 29 September, 2017

“The calm within the storm is where peace lives and breathes. It is not within perfect circumstances or a charmed life… it is not conditional. Peace is a sacred space within, it is the temple of our internal landscape. We are free to visit it, whenever we seek sanctuary. Underneath the chaos of everyday living, peace is patiently awaiting our discovery… go within.” 
~  Jaeda DeWalt

 

I’m excited to announce my next residential retreat – my Temple of Light ™ Shamanic Meditation Retreat, to be held at Sangsurya, Byron Bay from the 23rd to the 29th of September, 2017

This isn’t your ordinary meditation course. This retreat is essentially an opportunity to connect more deeply with your Soul Energy and Guides than you might ever have thought possible. Let me tell you more…

There is a very special meditation that I practice on a very regular basis. It’s not just a meditation, it’s a destination – and 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.

In Ancient cultures our transitions from childhood to puberty, and from puberty to adulthood were marked by ritual, ceremony and the exchange of information. The rituals were especially important for individuals with psychic awareness. These individuals were given specific training in meditation and energy techniques to help them to connect with and explore their abilities, to travel deep within themselves, and to move into connection with the spiritual realms.

A shamanic journey is a journey within. This sacred journey allows us to access a level of consciousness where we can more easily tune into intuitive and spiritual guidance. We learn to listen to our bodies. We learn to listen to our hearts. We learn to listen to our souls and our own inner wisdom. We learn to listen to the Earth, and to all that surrounds us.

On such a journey we often discover things deeply buried – all manner of gifts and longings and talents neglected. We are able to practice Soul Retrieval as we connect to the aspects of ourselves that have long been lost, shamed or shunned.
When we embark on a shamanic journey we gift ourselves space to become whole again, in flow again, and we experience growth and peace.

Will one of the last places be for you?

We are in school holidays right now and Dana is a work-from-home mum so don’t expect an immediate response, but I promise she will get to you just as soon as she can.

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

We’re On Retreat!

“I am not a teacher, but an awakener.”
~ Robert Frost

 

This morning we begin our next residential retreat, Beginners Channelling, here in Byron Bay.

My bags are packed and the ute is packed and we will soon leave the farm and travel the short distance down the road to our retreat destination. The venue is ready. My students are arriving. It’s all about to happen.

I’m excited for this group. I chose this time for our retreat so carefully, and booked it almost four years ago. Today will be a day of preparation and orientation and then tomorrow we move into the end of April, into Samhain, deep into the process of seeing ourselves and our lives honestly and of letting go of all that no longer serves. It’s also a powerful time for all forms of psychic connection.

Then suddenly it will be May, and with it will come gentle energies for heart healing and growth (wait for my blog on Monday where I explain these energies in much more detail). May will be a time for great forgiveness and a healthy new self-acceptance.

It’s a powerful time for soul work, and that is what we will do.

As I hold my students in my twice-daily meditations I will also hold space for you to make these same shifts, and to experience this same new freedom and expansion. I’ll update you on our progress next week, and give you some little activities to help you step more fully into your own intuitive gifts.

I have a few spots left on our next residential retreat in June. Temple of Light is a Shamanic Meditation Retreat and it’s possibly my favourite meditation technique ever. It is suitable for complete beginners and advanced practitioners. But I’ll tell you more about that later. Right now I have to get ready for a very big day.

Sending so much love your way, Nicole <3 xoxo

 

PS – Want to know more about our Temple of Light Meditation Retreat? Email me at cauldronsandcupcakes@gmail.com and we’ll be sure to send some details to you on Monday.

November 25 to December 1 – Working with Crystals – Level 1. This will be the first time I have offered this as a residential course. An immersive and intensive experience where I will show you how to select, clear, charge and program crystals. I’ll show you how to use them for meditation and healing, to support the chakras, to support intuition and psychic awakening, as a channelling tool, for manifestation and for creating energetic spaces. I’ll also teach you the fundamentals of crystal gridding and crystal essence making, and how to choose crystals for others. Lots of meditation and energy work, lots of stones to take home, and lots and lots of fun!

The Eagles and the Crystals

“Believe something and the Universe is on its way to being changed. Because you’ve changed, by believing. Once you’ve changed, other things start to follow. Isn’t that the way it works?”
~ Diane Duane, So You Want to Be a Wizard

 

In January, we pulled down our massive Ancestors and Songlines crystal healing grid at our farm. Ben and my friend Satisha helped me to locate all of the stones that were beginning to be buried by the long summer grass that had grown up wildly all around them. We literally crawled around the grid on our hands and knees, feeling every inch of ground to pull out the stones which had lain there through sun and rain, moon and stars for nearly 8 weeks.

When the stones were removed I sorted through them and chose a selection to be tasked for my retreat students this year, plus a few extra that I may sell or give away at some stage. Ben then drove me and my stones to the very back of our property where the eagles live.

In the boughs of a mighty old gum tree is a huge platform made from sticks and branches. It is home to a nesting pair of wedge-tail eagles. The tree itself sits within a tangled thicket of scrub, privet and camphor. It’s private, secluded and the place holds an energy of wilderness and deep peace. The views from the top of the tree must be incredible. The birds would see our entire valley and river system, and then over the saddle of the hill behind them and into the next valley too. We often see the eagles and their fledglings soaring on the thermals around our farm. They are massive birds. Majestic. Fearless.

At the foot of this ancient tree, beneath the eagles’ nest I laid out a new crystal grid. I sang magic into it the way my old Aboriginal Aunties taught me. I added my own magic too, and the magic of my ancestral line. I wanted these crystals to soak up all of that energy, and the energy of the land, of the tree and of the eagles. Of course other creatures will add their own energies. There is so much native wildlife here. And there is the energy of country. It’s a tangible energy, and it makes the crystals sing.

On Tuesday afternoon we went back and retrieved these stones. They have been through wild storms, eclipses, full moons, dark moons, pink moons, bright clear skies and gentle sunsets. After so long in the dirt they were encrusted with earth and bits of leaf and grass. They smelled like sweet loamy soil and sunshine. And goodness, how they felt in my hand!

This weekend I’ll scrub them clean and lay them out in the sun to dry, and then I’ll choose one for each of my Beginners Channelling students, for them to learn how to use when our retreat starts just ten days from now.

Maybe one of these stones will find its way to you one day. I truly believe that they always find the person who needs them most.

They are simply wonderful. I know you’ll love them as much as I do!

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.”
~ Lada Ray

 

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.

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

Acceptance – A Short Documentary about Owning Who You Are

2016-07-20-14-31-49

“The things that make me different are the things that make me.”  ~ A.A. Milne

“You are always welcome at my table.” ~ Nicole Cody

 

Last year I invited my friend Kerry Warnholtz to come spend some time with me as I prepared for and then ran my Chakra Wisdoms retreat.

Kerry is a talented photographer and videographer who sees the world through soulful and ever-watchful eyes. I hoped that she might be able to capture some footage and a few stills for my new website. My brief to her was that I wanted her to somehow show the love and care I put into each event that I run, and how precious each of my students is to me – how much I take that teaching and mentoring responsibility into my heart.

Kerry didn’t just capture that – she captured me – a little snapshot into my life, and the struggles I have had in coming to a place of self-acceptance. This short film speaks a lot to my WHY – why I do what I do – and I thought many of you might relate to the struggles I had in my earlier life to accept myself as I am.

What I want you to know, more than anything, is that I believe in you and that I want you to be who you are and be true to yourself. Being you is the most important thing you can do, and it’s time. The world needs us to stop pretending to be who we are not or to represent ourselves in the world as less than we are. It’s time to embrace ourselves and each other in all of our glorious diversity and similarity.

So, watch this little documentary. Come meet me at my farm, and in my life, and know that you are always welcome at my table.

You are among friends here.

Thanks for sharing the journey with me,

Nicole <3 xx
