Dear Sensitive Souls, Are You Feeling These Intense Energies?

“Highly sensitive people are too often perceived as weaklings or damaged goods. To feel intensely is not a symptom of weakness, it is the trademark of the truly alive and compassionate. It is not the empath who is broken, it is society that has become dysfunctional and emotionally disabled. There is no shame in expressing your authentic feelings. Those who are at times described as being a ‘hot mess’ or having ‘too many issues’ are the very fabric of what keeps the dream alive for a more caring, humane world. Never be ashamed to let your tears shine a light in this world.”
~ Anthon St. Maarten

 

Are you feeling it? This intensity? Are you feeling exhausted for no good reason, or overwhelmed? Struggling to get through the day? Carrying an unusually big burden of oppression, worry or emotional stress, no matter how good your life might be?

Lovelies, it isn’t just the supermoon.

There are a few other factors at play.

There has been a massive recent shift in the earth’s crust and in the fluids that run beneath our feet. That’s part of the reason New Zealand experienced the earthquake this week that has released an enormous flow of positive ions (the same kind as from solar flares which exhaust and unground you). There are more adjustments to come.

These shifts under our feet, and some of the astrological factors at play, are deeply affecting sensitive people.

As we approach 2017, and the energies of 2016 and the energetic era that concluded with 2012 finally come to a close, there is flux and change in the air.

Big change. Big flux.

It’s so destabilising for sensitive people.

What can you do? Plenty.

Spend time in nature, and with your loved ones. It’s an excellent time to channel and connect to your guides and energetic team. Meditate, pray, and send love into the world, and to all those you love.  Especially, send love to those you feel are not living from their heart or who feel isolated or excluded from the community.

It’s a great time for rest. Lots of grounding and plant energy in and on and around your body, because the plants are still grounded and grounding, even though there is so much positive ionic activity around us. Essential oils that will help include lavender, vetivir, sandalwood, elemi, orange and cedarwood. Crystal help? Black tourmaline, red jasper, green aventurine, selenite, amethyst and hematite.

Be really discerning about who you spend time with. These energies will be trawling up emotions for lots of people, which may make interactions tense or difficult. Put your psychic raincoat on and let it all slide off you. Don’t engage (especially if you feel fragile or vulnerable), don’t enter into arguments – all of this just escalates these destabilising energies.

All of us are levelling up as we step into the energies of 2017. For some people this is an easy thing. For others it will be a massive undertaking.

Work on your shit, close doors, let go of what isn’t working. Think about how you want your life and your world to be and take steps now to make that happen. Even tiny steps count. It’s not enough to think about it. In November we’re sowing seeds for the year ahead. We’re all connected, and our individual actions will always affect the whole. Don’t ever think that you can’t make a difference. We need you more than ever!

Trust that 2016 is a game changer on so many levels. Do all you can to nurture and sustain yourself until we get back to solid ground.

Holding you all in my thoughts, prayers and meditations,

Nicole <3 xoxo

Going Through Some Shi*t Right Now? (Shift, of course!)

“You can accept or reject the way you are treated by other people, but until you heal the wounds of your past, you will continue to bleed. You can bandage the bleeding with food, with alcohol, with drugs, with work, with cigarettes, with sex, but eventually, it will all ooze through and stain your life. You must find the strength to open the wounds, stick your hands inside, pull out the core of the pain that is holding you in your past, the memories, and make peace with them.”
~ Iyanla Vanzant

 

Hello, my lovelies.
Are you feeling it? This intense energy?
If you are, then I am glad.
Even though it is rough, and kind of hard to handle.

I’m glad because it means that you’re moving in the right direction.

You see, we’re in the middle of some pretty big shift. You’d have to be pretty stuck to not feel it. And for all of you who are empathic, sensitive or intuitive, this could be a pretty intense ride. The full moon is amplifying it. The heavens and their alignment are amplifying it. The earth in her wisdom is amplifying it – this crazy, crazy-making energy of shift.


As we move to a higher vibration so much of what we have carried within our bodies and our cellular memories, so much of what is encoded in our DNA, and in the deepest recesses of our memories, so many of our old patterns and beliefs, old injuries and illnesses that were anchored deep into our tissue, they are all letting go.


Which may mean that you feel swamped.
Or that shit keeps going down.
Know what I mean?

And it might be making you feel more than a little edgy. Or crazy. Or desperate. Like you’re back down the rabbit hole again, and you’ll never get out. Like things will never, ever be sorted. Like you thought you were done with all of this, and yet here you are again, right in the place you thought you’d left far behind.


I want to remind you that it will pass. Don’t sit in fear with it. Don’t hang onto all of this old stuff or reclaim it by saying ‘This always happens to me.’ Don’t let any of this old stuff define you.


Be brave in witnessing this passing as the old energies move out of your life. Give them up. Let them go. Don’t fight them. Don’t freak yourself out by thinking that this place you’re in right now will never end.


If you’ve ever driven down a dead-end street you’ll know that you have to pass all that same stuff you’ve already travelled by as you head back out onto the open road again.

Face it head on. Cry if you must. And then keep going. Because this is what levelling up is all about. Keep your eyes on where you want to go, rather than the road behind you. Hold onto your dreams.

You’d always intended that this would be the life where you’d clear and let go of all of this. So get to it! I have so much faith in you.

Feeling Extra Tired Right Now?

“Most of the things we need to be most fully alive never come in busyness. They grow in rest.”
~ Mark Buchanan

 

Hello, Lovely Lightworkers!

Feeling extra tired right now? I’m not surprised. No, there is nothing seriously wrong with you, but I am prescribing a lot of extra rest this weekend.

I always plan my retreats around moon phases and astrological energies, and my recent Accelerated Channelling course was run a few weeks ago for two reasons:

  1. It was the perfect time for accelerated spiritual and psychic growth, and
  2. the weeks following the retreat were aligned with providing rest and consolidation for my students’ big energetic changes

You may not have come on my retreat, but if you are energetically sensitive, intuitive or empathic you too will have been affected by recent astrological events. You too will have ‘levelled up’, clearing lots of old pain and grief (including past life and ancestral work), and raising your spiritual vibration.

Spiritual work and self work is the hardest work you can do. It’s been a time of huge growth for us in these energies of 2016. Now what’s needed is rest, quiet time, time spent on pleasure and in the company of people you cherish, and time in nature.

Can you find some of that time for yourself this weekend and in the coming few weeks?

You’ll also find it beneficial to sit and daydream positive thoughts about the future, to journal and work with your oracle or tarot cards, to draw and plan and go within. So many answers and insights await you.

Sending so much love your way, Nicole xx

 

Quiet Time

2016-04-13 07.16.31

“I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.”
~ John Muir

 

It’s rainy here at the farm this morning, and cooler. You can truly sense autumn in the air.

My Accelerated Channeling retreat starts tomorrow, and I can feel the energy of the group growing and shifting as I work with them in my meditations each day. It will be a big few days, this retreat. I know it in my bones.

This morning after I finished my meditation I felt the need to go walking. So I did. On my own, in my pyjamas and gum boots. Down to the grove of trees near the cattle yards, where the bunya pines and tall old gums lend a steadiness to the air, and it feels a little like being in a cathedral.

To stand in the cool misty air beneath the boughs of old trees brought me to an equally quiet and steady place in my soul.

I am ready. So are my students.

Let this change come.

2016 – The New Energy of Connection and Disclosure

Image from www.tlc.com

Image from www.tlc.com

“Anything that’s human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable. When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary. The people we trust with that important talk can help us know that we are not alone.”
~ Fred Rogers

 

Since early this year I’ve noticed an unusual and promising trend – people talking!

Not just any kind of talking. Not just pass-the-time-of-day conversations. No. I mean real conversations, with all manner of self-disclosure.

An elderly relative of ours who has long struggled with mood swings and lapsing into periods of angry not-talking and self-imposed isolation, recently confessed to my husband that she was feeling cranky and out of sorts and didn’t know why. It didn’t feel good, she said. She didn’t know what to do about it. It was the first time she had ever talked about her feelings.

A long-time friend invited us to share supper with her. As we sat out under the trees, surrounded by fairy lights on a balmy summer’s night, our friend began talking. This is a friend who has NEVER talked about herself, and instead has always cleverly deflected questions, talked about politics or the weather, and turned conversation back to us. Ben and I sat, mesmerised, as she talked long into the night about her early life, her career, and her relationships. Interlaced with reflection and feelings. Stories she’s never shared before.

While sitting with neighbours earlier this month, sharing belated Christmas drinks, my neighbour talked about remembering flying in the night sky when she was a child. After which we all shared similar strange memories and experiences that we had always held close to us, for fear of judgement.

It’s a taste of these new energies we are moving into. Sharing our stories, discussing our feelings, voicing our fears – all of these things bring us closer together, and help us to understand that we are not alone. That our supposed strange and lonely path is actually a journey walked and understood by many.

I have a simple favour to ask.

Next time you’re meeting with family or friends, put your phone away. Banish the screens. Take time to be with each other. Give these new energies a chance to work their magic by being present and truly listening to the people you are with. Be brave enough to offer your own feelings, thoughts and experiences into the conversation.

Be part of this revolution of connection.

Much love, Nicole <3 xx

What’s Really Going On, Nicole?

NicoleFluffyJacket

“Once you become self-conscious, there is no end to it; once you start to doubt, there is no room for anything else.”
~ Mignon McLaughlin

 

I’ve had a cranky few days.

I could explain it away as lack of sleep – too much noisy koala sex outside my bedroom window keeping me awake all night – but that would not be it. A contributing factor? Sure. But still, I know my own mind.

Which is why I have a handy question for such instances.

‘What’s really going on, Nicole?’

That’s what I ask myself. Because I know that I know…

So, yesterday, I asked myself, ‘What’s really going on, Nicole?’

‘Oh, just shut up!’ I told myself in my best cranky voice. ‘Leave me alone. I’m just tired. I’m just busy. That’s all.’

The word ‘just’ is a huge red flag for me. It’s my cop-out word. It’s my loaded word. It’s nothing… It’s just…

It’s just that I’m obviously avoiding some big fat thing that I don’t want to talk about.

Hmmmm.

Does that sound familiar to you?

Are you sniffing, and flicking your hair, and shaking your head, and turning away, and saying ‘Fine, I’m just fine…’ at something too?

It’s no good living with a stompy five-year-old in my head having a temper tantrum. That’s not how I want my year to be. 2016, among other things, is about bringing what is hidden into the light. It’s about owning our shadow, and the unclaimed and rejected parts of ourselves, our families, our societies.

I decided to make a pot of tea and do some journalling using a technique called Left Hand Right Hand Dialogue for connecting to that cranky inner child.

 

Let me show you what followed:

Big Nicole: ‘Hi, Little Nicole’ I asked with my dominant hand. ‘What’s really going on?’

Little Nicole: ‘Your planner is dumb!’ I responded with my non-dominant hand, in words so cranky they made stab holes in the page.

Big Nicole: Surprised, (I love my Planner and have been using this method for years) I asked ‘Why do you feel that way?’

Little Nicole: ‘I don’t want to do it. I don’t like it. It’s stupid.’

Big Nicole: ‘Why don’t you like it?’

Little Nicole: ‘I don’t want to do it. I don’t want to have to do that thing.’

I immediately experienced a sinking feeling in my stomach. My stupid Planner. Yep. It’s four days into January and I still haven’t chosen or brainstormed my One Big Thing.

Except.

Actually.

I have.

Last year when I was working with Bek, my graphic designer, she asked for an example of a mind-map that we could use as an illustration in my Planner. I happily obliged, telling myself, ‘I’ll just choose this thing, because it’s a good example, and it’s not really my One Big Thing. ‘Next year I’ll choose something different. Something business-y. Or health. Or… something.’

Here’s that thing I keep avoiding.

mind map

What’s really going on, Nicole?

Shut up, alright. I just don’t want to do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

People will know I’m weird. I won’t be able to take it back once it’s been said. People will judge me. I’ll be laughed at. Rejected.

It won’t be good enough.

I won’t be good enough.

I don’t want to do it.

Except that I really do. It’s the thing I care about so much. Every time I think about the manuscript, finished and needing editing and sitting in my bottom drawer. Every time I think about it, or avoid thinking about it, or do it, or actively avoid doing it, Black Cockatoos fly over my farm, squawking loudly. My Aunties, encouraging me. Reminding me. I am this thing. I need to be this thing.

That’s what my Aunties told me about Black Cockatoos, all those years ago as I sat in the dirt in a circle of wise Aboriginal Women.

“Dis fella keep you company too. Remind you of your black sisters, up here in dis country. Even when you leave and go far, far from here, dese black fella birds and their yella-tailed cousins will find you. Sing to you and say ‘Remember, Remember,’ No way we let you forget. Dat story in you now. You belong part of our family now.”

“One day you live somewhere, you call dat country home. Smell like dis place. Earth. Sea. But make you happy again. We send all dem black fella birds remind you your promise. Remind you your story. Then you know it’s time. Time to be dat story. Live dat story in your heart. Live your true Dreaming.”

 

Already, people who are working with my Planner have been sending me encouraging messages about my memoir. Because I used that stupid example, and it’s there on the page for everyone to see.

Have I started it yet? they ask. Can’t wait to read it!

Do you need an accountability buddy?

??????????????????????????

Bugger.

Today I will sit with my Planner and map out how to properly make my memoir my One Big Thing.

I’m not resisting now. I’ve had my little moment. It’s time to own this thing in me. To own my story and put it out into the world. And then move on to something else.

I am what I am. My ‘Otherness’ is what shapes me. It will all be okay.

I highly recommend asking yourself the question.

What’s really going on?

Examining stuckness, resistance and repressed emotion is always a good thing. Bring that which is hidden out into the Light.

2016 – Guidance for the Year Ahead

 

Image from www.vietcv.net

Image from www.vietcv.net

“If nothing else in this long and short life, let me be true to my conscience, to the dignity of my own heart. Let me act in a way that says, I have honored my spirit as truly as I have honored others’. Let me stand tall and rooted as a mountain in the face of a quaking world.”
~ Jennifer DeLucy

 

Happy New Year, and welcome to the energies of 2016!  New Year’s Day is always a special time for me. I like to welcome the day with meditation, and then spend some time over the course of the day contemplating my year ahead, asking for spiritual guidance, and writing in my journal.  For me it is a day of planning and dreaming, and spending time with people and activities that matter to me.

I have one tarot deck that I use only for the first day of the new year.  For over 25 years I have worked with this deck as a touchstone to set the themes of my year ahead so that I might live with greater awareness and understanding.  I don’t use the cards as a predictive tool – rather I use them for reflection, and to seek guidance about qualities, actions and perspectives that might benefit me over the next twelve months.

Just after midnight I asked for one card for you – to give YOU guidance over the year ahead.  This is my personal interpretation of that card for you.

Take what resonates as truth for you, and discard the rest.

 

 

THE STAR – Insights for 2016

the-star-thoth-tarot

“The thought of being whoever I want is a terrifying thing, because I have only ever been who everyone has wanted me to be.”
~ Dianna Hardy

 

2015 was a year of shake-ups and shake-downs – a year to break free of old patterns, a year to let go of duty and instead to begin listening to the whispers of our hearts.  It was a year for beginning to be true to ourselves. And for choices based on alignment with our authenticity.

And now we are here, at the dawning of a whole new year.

2016 is holding her arms wide and inviting us to step into her energy, ready for change, ready for action, ready for growth.

If I was to sum up the energies of 2016 in one word, that word would be LAUNCH. It is a year for expressing yourself authentically in the world, taking new directions and finding new ways of being, for starting and growing life-changing projects, for truly becoming more of who you are. A year that builds on the work you have done in 2015, and that demands honesty and space for being yourself, sharing your gifts and moving into the flow of creativity and abundance.

The Star, as your guidance for the year, is encouraging you to honour and work with your intuition. This is not a year for being who others want you to be, or need you to be. 2016 demands that you live this year for you, and true to your own inner compass.

For some of you that will be confronting. Who are you, and what do you want? These are questions you may have had no time for as you have busily lived to please or support others.

The Star gifts you a dawning sense of self-worth and self-confidence. Not based on shallow or external devices, but on your own self-knowing. This comes from having looked within, and from spending time in your own company.

As you begin to truly know yourself you radiate your own light and truth out into the world. You trust yourself. You understand your wants and needs. You can now live guided by your values, from a place of integrity and authenticity.

Gradually, as this depth of knowing increases, you can become a guiding light for others.

This is a year for creativity and innovation, and for taking small but consistent steps towards your dreams by anchoring your thoughts into reality through your deeds. It is a year of transformation through action.

2016 is a pivotal year, for the energies we invest in this year will become magnified over the next nine-year cycle. There is no need to get it all done. But if something is important to you, make sure that it is represented in your life, even if it is only there in small amounts.

It’s never too late to be whom you might have been. Choose a place in your life and just get started. There is so much support available for you as you intentionally and deliberately work towards manifesting change this year.

Take time out throughout your year to think deeply about your life, and how you want it to be. Check in with yourself. What makes you happy? Do more of that. What tears you down or wears you out? Do less of that. Make conscious choices that allow you to create a life that is rich and meaningful for you, rather than a life lived to make others happy or to gain their approval.

Above all, trust your gut. Live from your intuitive wisdom. Listen to and honour your inner knowing. BE yourself. Own the truth of who you really are.

I’m wishing you a year rich with meaning, and filled with love, support, kindness, well-being and flow.

Bless ♥ Nicole xx

Endings and Beginnings

2015-12-02 07.31.18

“No, this is not the beginning of a new chapter in my life; this is the beginning of a new book! That first book is already closed, ended, and tossed into the seas; this new book is newly opened, has just begun! Look, it is the first page! And it is a beautiful one!”
~ C. JoyBell C.

 

It’s our last day of Soul Sanctuary retreat and, as always, I am a Spiritual Mumma of mixed emotion this morning.

On one hand I am glad this retreat is finishing and I can go home to my farm – to Ben and Nurse Bert and Cafe Dog. I miss them, and I miss the comfort of my own bed and my funny little world. I am glad that this is the final day because I have not worked this hard on a retreat ever. Ever. So much unexpected shift happened with this group and so much extra magic. I have facilitated massive awakening and growth and letting go of huge burdens of emotion and old patterning for my students. I have channelled more for this group than I have ever done for my big working courses where I am meant to do such things. I am exhausted and sleep deprived and feel that a lifetime of massages may not get the knots out of my shoulder girdle and neck. I feel like I have held up the world this week. I am ready to creep into my little bed at home and stay there.

On the other hand I can’t believe it’s Friday already. It has been an amazing journey, and an honour and privilege to be in the company of such brave, beautiful souls. I haven’t laughed so much in ages.

Or cried so much.

I am so fiercely proud of these women and what they have achieved and where they are going to next in their lives.

I am humbled and awed by the scope of love in their hearts, and by the tender way they have worked through their heart pains, hurts, family issues, relationship issues and more. Always gently and kindly supporting each other. Allowing themselves to remain vulnerable and to be helped in return.

Wow.

I am thrilled and excited to see what they have created for themselves as life plans for 2016. The shape of their dreams and the brightness in their eyes – that spark of passion and commitment – it’s inspiring! I can’t wait to see how it all unfolds for them, and I am looking forward to my continued part in that unfolding.

I will miss them and their kindness, and their hugs and soul-light and the way they push me to give them more and more. To grow them faster.

We’ve done such big work this week. Because it needed to be done and everyone preferred to do the work than to lie by the pool or sun themselves at the beach. Although we had tiny windows of those pleasures too.

It’s been amazing. It’s ending. And new things are opening out for each of us. We can all feel the power and possibility of the coming year. We’ve closed the door on 2015. We’ve stepped across the threshold into this new energy of 2016.

Give me a few days rest now, and then I’ll be bright-eyed again, ready to lead you on your own journey of growth and self-discovery in the year ahead. With my Planner and year-long course, and for a handful of souls who are looking for something more through my ‘Launch’ Project. I promise I will come back and answer every question and comment on my blog and facebook page, and put the final details of the Year of ME Planner up for you once I have gifted myself a decent night’s sleep!

I’ll leave you with a few images from my early morning wander through the Sangsurya hall and gardens.

Hugs and love, Nicole <3 xoxo

A Sneak Peek at My Secret Project!

2015-12-03 05.51.16

“A goal without a plan is just a wish.”
~ Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

 

I always thought that the first book I brought out into the world would be a story. But it isn’t my story. It’s yours!

Here’s the sneak peek I promised you of the project I have been working on. It’s a Planner, to help you to organise your year, and to help you make the most of the incredible energies for change that 2016 is offering us.

If I was to sum up the energies of 2016 in one word, that word would be LAUNCH. It will be a year for expressing yourself authentically in the world, taking new directions and finding new ways of being, for starting and growing life-changing projects, for truly becoming more of who you are. A year that demands honesty and space for being yourself, sharing your gifts and moving into the flow of creativity and abundance.

To really take advantage of a year like this you need a practical tool – one that helps you to make a map and then navigate that map to your destination.

As you may remember me telling you, every year going back as far as I can remember my mother boldly announces on New Year’s Day, ‘It’s the Year of Me this year! It’s going to be different this year. This year will be the year of ME! I’m going to do what I want to do. For me!’  After which Mum starts the year so well-intentioned, but by February the wheels have fallen off the bus, and by the end of the year she’s thoroughly exhausted and nothing much has changed, and she still hasn’t gotten around to those important things for herself that she cares about. Instead her life has been work, more work and meeting everyone else’s needs. Do you relate to that? I think most of us do.

Welcome to The Year of ME Planner – 2016. ME stands for Manifesting Energies, and that’s what this planner is all about. This is your space for exploring and consciously creating the kind of life you desire – it’s your own personal think tank and manifestation machine! So if you prefer ME, (apart from standing for YOU – no, not just you, Mum, hopefully other people will use this Planner too!) can also stand for Making Empires, Magical Engagements, Monetary Expansion, Mindful Experiences, Mysterious Enticements or even Masterpiece Enactment.

2015-12-03 05.53.31

How did The Year of ME Planner come about?

Ever since I was a kid I have been filled with plans and ideas. Creative ideas, business ideas, and life ideas. I worked successfully in the corporate world for a while, and then crossed over to being self-employed. But I often came unstuck with my plans. If I followed my head and over-rode my intuition it never ended well. If I ignored my body (I’ve had, until recently, undiagnosed Lyme Disease for over 30 years, so I am well acquainted with exhaustion, mental fog and still needing to earn money to pay the bills) I ran myself into the ground. When I had more than one project on the go, I tended to start messing things up. At one stage I was working out of four different day planners – one for dates and scheduling, one for mind-mapping and big-picture planning, one for spiritual connection and oracle or rune guidance, and one for journaling my ideas.

Finally I created a strange hybrid journal of cut-and-pasted pages just for me which incorporated all of those elements – big-picture planning and goal setting, regular review of those goals, brainstorming sessions, a space for drawing an oracle card and reflecting on that, for spiritual musings and for journaling my hopes and dreams. I then created time in my calendar and journal for my very own Yearly and Quarterly Planning Summits, as well as Sunday Sessions for reviewing and planning each week before it unfolded. This allowed me to be organised, decisive, guided and most importantly, flexible. I didn’t just want to get things done – I wanted to live a life that held meaning and colour and texture. A life aligned with my values. A life that made me happy. One that also allowed me to goof off occasionally, to not fall behind or overburden myself if I was sick, and to have regular much-needed down-time. A life that looks a lot like the one I lead now!

2015-12-03 05.57.04

The Year of ME Planner allows you to create your own map – to a life that is intuitive, intentional and purposeful. Whether you want to launch a business, get in shape, write a book, plan the most exciting holiday or wedding, build a garden or just have more time for the things that really matter I’m here to guide you, step by step, to manifesting that life. I want you to use this planner so that you can look 2016 in the eye and say with confidence ‘2016? This is going to be the year of ME!’ I’m so excited about this tool that I could just about bust. It helps you to practice extreme self-care, personal and life management, and will guide you to put plans on the page that are actionable and realistic, with just the right amount of daring.

We’ve been using the first part of the Planner here at the Soul Sanctuary Retreat with brilliant results, and my lovely retreat participants have already helped me to fine tune and add a few extra bits and pieces that they know will support you well. It’s a pilot project, after all. And I love that energy of collaboration, where we all work to make something the best that it can be.

I’ve also been cooking up a little extra surprise to go with the planner – a whole community of love and support to help you work towards crafting a more meaningful and purposeful life. A collaborative community for you to craft your best life! I’ll be launching a year-long course and members area, packed with tools and information to help you make 2016 your best year yet. You will be able to find out how to do an intuitive reading for yourself, learn to work with oracle cards and crystals, watch my instructional videos, listen to exclusive monthly guided meditations, interviews with experts who have helpful information and skills to share, and access my month-by-month interpretations of the energies at play. You’ll get to meet like-minded people, find support buddies and receive a flow of motivation, inspiration and reminders every month so that you don’t start strong and then fizzle out before you actually get anything done!

I so want for you to have a 2016 that sees you create a life that moves you closer to your dreams and that is rich with friendship, happiness, creativity and purpose.

So that’s my surprise. And it’s filled with Lucky Dips, Magical Carrots, and a whole lot of love and magic.

I’ll be formally launching the Planner at My Christmas Party in Brisbane next Friday, but I’ll have a sales page up in the next few days for pre-launch sales.

The cost of the planner will be $22 AUD for a digital download of the Year of Me – 2016, which is currently standing at 270 pages of goodness.

The cost of the digital download AND a full year’s support through the online course and member community will be $275 AUD.

I’ve poured my heart and soul into this Planner, and I am thrilled to be part of your unfolding story for 2016.

Let’s walk this magical path together!

Lots of love <3 Nicole xoxo
