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.

So, you’re a sensitive soul?  If you’re not sure, you can read more about ‘sensitive’ people here, to see if you identify with any of the common characteristics:

Living as a Sensitive Soul

One thing that sensitive souls will be noticing right now is how all of this astrological shift and change can affect us. What makes us sensitive – that ability to feel and sense energies and information that might not be so readily apparent to others – is also the thing that can make us more vulnerable to astrological and energetic phenomena.  We are more influenced by the energetic shifts and changes, and can be affected in a number of ways, not all of them pleasant.

We may experience a sudden draining of our energy, feel heavy and fatigued, or ache as though we are coming down with the flu.  We may find that we feel depressed or anxious for no reason, or that our sleep patterns are disrupted.  We may feel unbalanced, not quite in our body, suffer from headaches or fuzzy thinking, or be irrational, teary, angry or upset – once again with no apparent cause.  We may become highly over-sensitive – to foods, people, weather, noise and light.

Image from hazyshapes.blogspot.com

It will always pass.  But when you feel this way, check things out.  Is there something happening with the planets or sun? Are we experiencing geological shifts within our own planet? Are you in close proximity to a lot of electromagnetic energy?

What to do when you’re affected:

If you’re feeling light, vague, airy, disconnected, anxious, fretful or scattered then do what you can to ground:

  • favour foods that are dense; such as grains, root vegetables, dairy, meat and eggs
  • eat larger portions, less often (no less than three meals a day though!)
  • take a powdered magnesium supplement
  • avoid sugar and stimulants such as caffeine
  • spend time in nature – sit, stand or lie on the ground, barefoot if possible
  • rest
  • avoid crowds, wind, lots of noise, and places that are busy or frenzied
  • choose and wear or hold grounding crystals such as jasper, garnet, hematite, pyrite, howlite, bloodstone, sodalite, dessert rose, tourmaline, tiger eye or tiger iron

You could also try my grounding meditation:

Nicole Cody’s Guided Meditation for Spiritual Grounding

If you’re feeling exhausted, angry, disoriented, achy, drained, depressed and flat you need to raise your vibration.  Things that help with this include:

  • eating a predominantly plant based diet, and eating lightly and often
  • consume fresh juices that favour a combination of fruits and vegetables (at room temperature)
  • get moving – some yoga, tai chi, qigung or walking will help
  • rest
  • drink plenty of water and herbal teas
  • take a powdered magnesium supplement
  • keep warm, or find ways to generate warmth within your body
  • avoid cold foods, including ice-cream, dairy and cold milks such as soy
  • avoid the news, and things/people/places that are likely to upset or depress you
  • favour crystals that uplift our energy, such as rose quartz, amethyst, smoky quartz, clear quartz, citrine, agates, jade, aventurine, fluorite, carnelian and amber

You can also use my meditation for developing and strengthening psychic connection:

Know that sensitivity is a blessing.  You just need to know how to manage it.  Know that you’re not alone, and that what you’re feeling is perfectly normal – for a sensitive soul! Bless ♥ xx

Healing with Crystals – Day Two

Today I’m going to look at some very simple healing techniques using crystals. These can be used for yourself, loved ones, and even for your pets.  My dogs both love having any form of energy work and I have even used crystals for my cows!

Crystals for Emotional and Energetic Support:

Crystals all have their own energy fields, and their own natural healing qualities.  Each stone will also have its own unique energy or personality, just as humans do. Small stones can have big fields, so don’t underestimate those smaller stones.

One of the easiest ways to use a crystal is simply to wear it as jewellery, tuck it into your bra or pop it in your pocket.

You could also place it beside you in the workplace, on your bedside table, or under your pillow.

Some of my personal favourites that are easy to source are:

  • Carnelian – for physical energy.  Great for when you are feeling run down, exhausted, or unwell.
  • Rose Quartz – for emotional support, self love, nurture and comfort.
  • Labradorite – for soothing the mind, bringing clarity, calm and gentle wisdoms.  A highly spiritual stone that is also very grounding.
  • Amethyst – for psychic and spiritual awakening, protection, guidance and sealing your aura.
  • Hematite – for protecting you on all levels and giving you strength.  Really deflective for other people’s negativity or aggression.
  • Citrine – for joy, abundance and positive opportunity.
  • Jasper – (there are so many beautiful jaspers to choose from, but they all have similar basic qualities) for grounding, calming and healing the emotions and physical body.
  • Fluorite – for enhancing creativity and flow of ideas, and attracting new opportunities that make best use of your gifts.
  • Calcite – for hearing and working with your Guides.
  • Smoky Quartz – for protection against electromagnetic radiation, and all negative vibrations and emanations.
  • Sodalite – for speaking your truth and clear communication.
  • Aventurine – for physical healing, removal of toxins, playfulness and a sense of great joy.

What is most important when choosing a crystal to wear or keep with you is that you are attracted to it, or attracted to the idea of it. Let your intuition guide you.  Children are naturally good at this, so you might also want to ask a small person to choose a stone for you if you feel unsure.

You may also want to place them where you spend a lot of time – the picture below is of the crystal selection on the windowsill above my kitchen sink!

Placing stones on the body:

This is a lovely thing to do, and it’s easy. Here’s a few variations you can try.

  • Simply choose one or more stones, lay them on your body, or the body of a loved one or pet, and then visualise or direct energy through the stone and into the part of the body where you want to promote healing. (I have bandaged crystals to parts of me with great result!) Even just lying down with the stone placed on your body is helpful.

  • Hold a tapered crystal or a wand, offer a prayer for the Highest Good, and then direct energy from the stone into the affected area, or energy centre of the body. (This usually works better doing it for others than on yourself.)
  • Hold a crystal over your heart, and then direct energy and light THROUGH that crystal and send the combined energy of the crystal and the light anywhere in your body that needs support, or even flood your entire body with that energy.  This is great to do when you are lying in bed, just before you go to sleep. I’ve included a short guided meditation at the end of today’s post to talk you through this process.

A simple guided Crystal Healing Meditation:

NoteAs I was recording this, just on dawn this morning, a group of crows came and sat on the fence in front of me.  They all looked at me and then began adding their own special energy to this meditation, so don’t be surprised to hear their voices amidst mine.  Crow Healing is considered very powerful by Australian Aborigines and Native American Indians, and I consider it a Blessing that these crows turned up today!

All you need for this healing session is a crystal and a comfortable place to lie down.  While it can be done in a seated position, lying down will enable you to relax deeply and fully. Once you understand the basics of this technique you can guide yourself through it without the aid of the recording.

Crow Magic: Crows are the messengers of the spiritual world. When Crows make an appearance, they herald great healing and change. They work with the energies of transformation, and are considered a sign that Spirit is actively supporting your growth and the journey of spiritual awakening.

How to work with Crystals – a Four Day Exploration

Since I mentioned using crystals in the bath yesterday, I’ve had quite a lot of enquires about how to use crystals. This of course also makes Sokli, my fairy friend, very excited.

So, over the next four days we’re going to explore how to choose a crystal, how to take care of it, and how to use it in meditation or for healing work.

Crystals have energy fields, just like humans do. When we bring a crystal into our own aura or living space it begins to act on our energy, imparting some its qualities and energy to us. Even a tiny stone can hold a huge charge, and impact us in many positive ways.

Sometimes the crystals affect us because they are part of a natural land formation.

Byron Bay, in Australia, is a great example of a huge natural energetic field. It is an area ringed by ocean on one side, and an ancient weathered volcanic rim on the other.  That ancient volcano holds vast quantities of obsidian, a crystal known for its ability to bring about healing and change.

Activity – Choosing a crystal:

Today I want you to choose a stone that you can work with over the next few days. It doesn’t matter if you have never worked with crystals before! This is an easy process, and a great way to heighten your energetic sensitivity and spiritual connection.

The stone doesn’t need to be big, elaborate or expensive.  It just needs to be one you can hold in your hand. I have often found crystal shops on my travels – the picture below is of the weekend markets in Bangkok, Thailand, where I bought some wonderful treasures!

Never chosen a crystal before? Here’s some tips for selecting a stone for yourself:

  • Look at an array of stones.  Does one of them immediately catch your attention?  If so, pick it up and see how it feels for you. (I have often picked up a stone in a shop and then walked around with it in my hand without realising I still have it – then just can’t put it down again and have to take it home.)
  • Does a colour or shape draw you to it?
  • Is there one that initially repels you, but then keeps bringing you back for another look?
  • Does one stone or crystal seem brighter or more noticeable than the rest?
  • If you’re drawn to a group of crystals but you can’t make up your mind, shut your eyes while you hold your hand palm down over the top of the stones.  Does one feel warmer, can you feel the energy of any of them, does any of them make your hand tingle? Try this even if you don’t believe you are energetically sensitive.  You might be surprised!
  • Some people pick stones intellectually, by reading about what the stone does, or how it could help them.  That’s okay too.

It doesn’t matter if the stone is tumbled, in its raw unpolished state, or cut into a certain shape!

And finally, know that some stones find you! A friend may give you one.  You might find one on the beach or by a creek. I found this lovely one (see pic below) when I was walking home from my neighbours via crossing the river between our farms. This one is amethyst and agate – indigenous to our area.  It’s an incredibly warm and grounding stone, and I’ve used it a lot for heart-healing work.

So, pick your stone, and get ready.  Tomorrow we’re going to begin working with it.  Hooray!!! ♥

The Magic of an Epsom Salts Bath

One of my favourite things is soaking in an Epsom Salts bath after a long day of psychic work. It works to soothe me on all levels – body, mind and spirit.

Because the magnesium from the Epsom Salts is absorbed directly through your skin it allows even people who find it hard taking magnesium orally to be able to top themselves up with this magical mineral.

Magnesium is an important element within our body.  It is used by our nervous system, and also by our muscles.  When we do psychic or metaphysical work we also burn up lots of magnesium. Magnesium is a co-factor in over 300 enzymatic actions in the human body, such as co-factoring with calcium to build and sustain healthy bones. It gives us energy, prevents muscle cramps and pains, calms us and helps us sleep.

How do you know if you might be magnesium deficient?  There’s a list of common symptoms here.

How to make your own Epsom Salts Bath:

Firstly, you’ll need a bathtub!  If you don’t have one then a big bucket to soak your feet in is the next best thing. The ingredients I list are for a bathtub, so reduce them accordingly if you are using a bucket.

Fill your bath with water that is tolerably hot (it needs to be able to flush your skin slightly pink) without burning you.  You need the water hot so that your pores open and because it aids osmosis.

Now add two heaped cups of Epsom Salts to your bath and stir to dissolve. Spend at least ten minutes having a good soak!

Extras – for that Deluxe Bath Experience

You can also add some essential oils to your bath to enhance the experience.  Use a few drops of Lavender at the end of the day if you want to relax – this is a great sleep enhancer.

3 drops of Rose Geranium, 3 drops of Bergamot and one drop of Vetiver will reduce stress and help rebalance hormones.

2 drops Rosemary, 3 drops Basil and 3 drops of Lemon will perk you up, enhance your mental clarity and memory, and boost your immune system.

Epsom Salts baths also detoxify the body, and work wonders on your aura – that energetic bubble our physical bodies reside within.  Epsom Salt baths clear our auras and strengthen them.

I often put a few tumbled crystals in my bath too – favourites are smoky quartz for clearing negativity and low vibrations from my aura, rose quartz for love and nurture, and amethyst for enhancing spiritual connection.  I often throw in a carnelian too, as it is a great physical healer and energy booster.

Enjoy!  ♥ ♥ ♥

Qigong and the Old Hoop Pine

There is an old Hoop Pine outside my back door, next to the wooden shed that will soon become my new library and office.  It is the first tree that greets me each morning. When I moved here four and a half years ago I hadn’t yet begun to see auras around plants, animals and places. But I knew that tree had a special energy.

On my fortieth birthday I woke up and I could see colour all around me, in everything living thing, and many more besides.

One thing I noticed straight away was the old Hoop Pine. It had a small energy for such a big tree, and was predominantly pale gold.

I often practice qigong at dawn, after my morning meditation, and I do this on the grass just outside my back door.

One day during my practice I noticed the Hoop Pine’s auric field begin to pulse. It grew a little brighter.

It was still brighter the next morning.

I did some more qigong. The Hoop Pine pulsed.

The tree’s auric field still seems small for such a big tree, but it is so bright, and when I walk close to it, I feel its shimmery energy. I have often drawn on that energy when I have most needed it, and to me it smells like fresh pine needles as it surges through my own aura.

It is the favourite haunt of the black cockatoos, even when the tree is not fruiting.  They fly in and sit awhile in its branches until their auras too start to glow more brightly.

 

Several times I have seen this Hoop Pine shoot golden energy out from its crown into the world.  It reminds me of a bomb going off – that rapid ballooning and surging of energy that goes BOOM and then is gone. It often coincides with the lunar cycle, but not always.

I have begun to see the sentience in the world around me.  Not just humans, not just animals, but plants. And as with us, some animals are elders of their tribes, and some plants hold that space too.

I met an elephant once, who had the most amazing aura I have ever seen, including a psychic channel.  She looked right at me as though she knew me, and reached out her trunk to stroke my cheek. But that’s a whole other story. Maybe I”ll tell you one day…
