Bountiful Blessings and Celebration – Monday Oracle 17 June 2019

“Be the celebrators, celebrate! Already there is too much—the flowers have bloomed, the birds are singing, the sun is there in the sky—celebrate it! You are breathing and you are alive and you have consciousness, celebrate it!”  ~ Osho

Hello, Lovelies!

June brings energies of growth and transformation. This month you can build on existing situations, foundations and opportunities, further transforming your life through work and self-belief. (And stay tuned, because I have a gorgeous new online course launching tomorrow which will help you capitalise on all of this good energy!) This month you’ll start to see results, and your progress will become visible to others too. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the card Rainbow Dragon brings us.

This is another really beautiful week of spiritual connection. But it’s not that raw intuitive place we were in last week, where you may have felt like all of your senses were in overload. This week’s energies are gentle – and focus on supporting you to be both perceptive and grateful.

You’ll be open and heart-centred and able to truly feel what’s going on from a space of empathy and kindness. It’s a great week for gratitude, for counting your blessings, for celebration. It is absolutely a week for sharing your love and appreciation and affection with the people around you and celebrating all of those things that are good in your life. 

It’s also a week of feeling kinder and more generous toward yourself, and toward those you love.

If your relationship with yourself has been less than stellar you’ll find yourself softening this week, so that you can embrace yourself, forgive yourself, laugh at yourself (kindly of course), accept yourself and love yourself more easily. You’ll also feel more inclined to try things without being so darned judgemental and critical of yourself.

If your relationship with a friend or loved one has been less than great you’ll find that you are able to mend bridges, to let go of hurt, to move on, to try again. It’s a wonderful time for reminiscing and discussing memories of experiences you’ve shared. It’s also a time of creating a new way forward that can work better for both of you so that you can leave the pain and hurt of the past in the past.

Celebrate a little or a lot this week. Because what’s life without celebration?

Supportive crystals this week?

Map Jasper helps you to concentrate, analyse and understand. It supports the adrenals and counteracts overthinking and intellectual exhaustion. (Can’t find Map Jasper? Use a combination of your favourite Jasper with Black Tourmaline.) Peach Moonstone encourages self-care, soothes worry, raises vibration and stimulates your capacity to problem solve using both intuition and reason. White Howlite will promote calm, tranquillity, self-acceptance and a feeling of emotional spaciousness. Amber (pictured) supports you to find and live from a place of creativity and joy, opening you to possibility while helping you to stay grounded.

PS: Monday’s oracle card, ‘Rainbow Dragon’, is from the Sacred Power Reading Cards by Anna Stark. I use any cards shown as a prompt for channelled messages and my own intuitive wisdom, so my take is sometimes quite different from the meaning found in a book. 

Energies of June 2019

“An awake heart is like a sky that pours light.” 
~ Hafiz

Hello, Lovelies!

At the beginning of every month, I discuss the energies and gifts of the month ahead and how we can best use them to make our lives satisfying, meaningful and productive. I also choose a card to support the energies of the month. The deck I am using this year is The Good Tarot by Colette Baron-Reid, and June’s card is 8 of Fire.

June brings energies of growth and transformation. 

This month you can build on existing situations, foundations and opportunities, further transforming your life through work and self-belief. You’ll start to see results, and your progress will become visible to others too.

The power of teamwork and of focus can’t be overestimated this month. There are so many choices in front of you now, and you may feel like there are too many choices and that everything is moving past you too fast. 

If you feel like that, look for some quiet time amid the bustle and haste. Use nature and meditation to bring you back to calm. Choose just a few things on which to focus. 

Let the rest go for now, or delegate it to someone else. And get a team together – people who can help and support you. You’ll go so much further together than trying to get it all done on your own.

June puts an emphasis on your health, healing and wellbeing. Don’t let your health slide at the expense of your dreams and goals. Look at ways to work sustainably and get help wherever you can.

Make sure to get a health check, and to keep on top of all of the habits and choices that let you live your best life.

Leave a little time for celebration this month too. Don’t let everything be everyday ordinary. 

You don’t need a reason to celebrate – being alive is enough! 

Surround yourself with people who support and uplift you. 

Do things that make you feel alive. Celebrate others too. Share the joy around.

Fill your life with colour, love and passion. Trust in the journey and believe in good outcomes.

Best crystals this month?

Map Jasper and Peach Moonstone

Map Jasper

Map Jasper helps you to concentrate, analyse and understand. It supports the adrenals and counteracts overthinking and intellectual exhaustion. 

Peach Moonstone

Peach Moonstone encourages self-care, soothes worry, raises vibration and stimulates your capacity to problem solve using both intuition and reason.

Essential oils to support your journey?

My choice for oils that will support focus, clarity, planning and action this month are Peppermint, Rosemary and Lemon. Choose one or all of them for your diffuser – they work beautifully together.

For relaxing, enjoying lift and lifting your mood try any of these oils on their own or in combination – Wild OrangeLavenderGeraniumFrankincense and Cinnamon Bark.

I’m passionate about essential oils and their capacity to support our wellness journey and our spiritual and emotional wellbeing. If you’d like to know more or want to source the oils I recommend and trust visit this site or contact me at channelnc@gmail.com

Want to get even deeper on your spiritual journey and psychic awakening?

Think about taking the last remaining place on my upcoming Temple of Light Shamanic Meditation RetreatMore details on that here.

Wishing you a satisfying journey this month. Make the most of it – these energies are life-changing and life enhancing.

Lots of love, Nicole xoxo

Building a New Crystal Grid

“Seriously, Nicole. These rocks weigh a tonne! I’ll get the tractor or we’ll be here til next year.” ~ Ben, ever-patient husband and rock shifter

We’ve been busy over the past few weeks, adding to a crystal grid built out on the earth here on my farm.

We prepared the site, Ben slashed the grass short, we gridded out the central stones and then we began constructing the complex design stone by stone.

In Ben’s massive farm shed where he houses our tractors we have racks and racks of stones. I’ve been collecting them for over twenty-five years. There are plenty here for any kind of grid we may like to construct, and many of them have already been in other grids. The energy they create is incredible.

Here’s Ben taking down the very old trays of my most precious smaller lasers, generators, raw points and Lemurian singing quartz.

It holds all the crystals that I will take to my Fairy Tea Party.

It holds all the crystals for my students in the upcoming Temple of Light Shamanic Meditation Retreat.

It holds all the crystals for my end-of-year event and for ‘Platform’ my final retreat for the year. (This is a Retreat for those of you who have a Calling and who need to get your message out into the world. We’ll be helping you craft your message, identify your audience and get your book or course outline written as well as a lot of other important practical and creative stuff like using social media. If that sounds like you, email my PA Trish Lyons directly at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com and she’ll add you to our pre-course list so you can be the first to access the course information and early-bird bookings.)

There are so many stones in this grid.

Wild stones. Polished stones. Tumbled stones. Orbs and generators. A cave. Working Stones and Shaman Stones, Meditation Stones, Healing Stones, Art Stones and Personal Talismans.

It’s been a long time since we’ve made a grid this big, or this magical.

Right now it’s being washed by gentle rain, and sung to by all the birds at out farm.

When the time is right I’ll post some images and perhaps add some extra stones for you.

Happy Weekend!
Lots of love, Nicole ❤ xx

Turquoise – A Great Stone For Healers and Empaths

“A turquoise given by a loving hand carries with it happiness and good fortune.” ~ Arabic proverb

 

Last week I made a simple turquoise and rose quartz necklace for a friend, and it has been charging up in one of my amethyst caves ever since. I’ll give it to her today – a gift to thank her for all her help as my acupuncturist’s assistant. Her caring and skill have helped me through some difficult days.

I chose turquoise because it is such a supportive stone for healers and empaths. I also added a small rose quartz for love and nurture – replenishing the energy that is so lovingly given out to others. Turquoise is a wonderful crystal. It shields the wearer energetically, and helps to process and let go of emotions that are generated or picked up during work with others. It is very protective of the heart chakra, and clears grief, guilt and trauma.

The emotions of grief, guilt and trauma can move deep into the body. They sit in our throats, our lungs, our hearts, our bellies. It can be our own feelings, or the energies we shift form other people and then take on as our own. Unexpressed, these trapped emotions weaken our immune function, and our digestion. They affect our physical organs, making them more prone to illness and, over time, dis-ease.

Holding grief, guilt and trauma within our bodies is a place that many intuitive, empathic and deeply caring people find ourselves. To love and to care is also to expose ourselves to hurt and to loss. Loving and caring deeply is risky, because when you live in that open-hearted state, love goes hand in hand with suffering. Still, I would advocate that you love anyway. That you care anyway.

One of your greatest gifts is that you care. One of your greatest gifts is that you can live heart-opened. Don’t change that. Just learn to manage it better.

Turquoise, worn on the centre line of the body, is a beautiful crystal for supporting healers in all modalities. Maybe you’d benefit from wearing one too!

Lots of love to you, Nicole xoxo

Dear Empaths and Intuitives, Go Gently Right Now!

“Sometimes I think,
I need a spare heart to feel
all the things I feel.”
~ Sanober Khan

 

Hello, lovely friends.

Empaths and intuitives everywhere will be feeling more tired and emotionally open (read fragile, emotionally hypersensitive, exhausted and possibly moody or broken) right now.

It’s not your fault. There’s nothing wrong with you. You’re just born more energetically sensitive than most. And there are factors at play which are ramping up those sensitivities more than usual.

The earth is currently experiencing high solar winds, seismic activity and solar flares. This bombards the earth with positive ions, making it hard for us to ground. The earth’s crust temporarily holds a positive charge rather than a negative one. This is a big deal for sensitive people.

Part of the way that intuitives, sensitives and empaths process information is through the aura (the energy field that sits around your body). You actually bring the emotional and thought-form energy projections of others right into your personal space in the form of positive ions emitted by the other person’s intellectual and emotional processes. Some of this is conscious as you ‘invite’ people to be close and share with you. Some of it is unconscious.

When we’re tired it becomes a more serious problem because we become more ‘open’ and can unwittingly be bombarded by the energies of others.

Usually we can ground into the negative crust of the earth and the build-up of positive ions is then discharged, but with all of the current solar flare activity this is impossible. Without the ability to clear these energies easily we end up processing them as if they were our own – usually during sleep. So then we wake up exhausted after having been hard at work all night!

On top of all of this we are also travelling through the tail-end of the Ursid meteor shower, and those energies will peak today. This meteor shower might not look very impressive in the sky, but microscopic particles of meteor debris are impacting the earth and will be for the next few weeks.

Meteor showers and dust ramp up psychic and emotional sensitivities in humans and animals. It’s a bit like how a sudden cold wind will raise goosebumps on your skin – meteor dust with its unusual electrical charge seems to raise the ‘psychic antennae’ in us. Petrified wood, jaspers, carnelians and hematite will all help to calm that energy down, and placing them in your pets’ bedding or water bowls will also help. You can also wear or hold black tourmaline or turquoise.

Lavender, cedarwood and frankincense essential oils will calm your limbic system and help you feel more calm and settled.

Of course, it’s also Christmas, a time when we are expected to be more social and to mix with family and friends who might trigger us at the best of times…

What to do?

Put yourself first. Tune in and see what your energy level and coping ability is like before committing to invitations and obligations.

Rest. Withdraw. Go quietly. Surround yourself with people who support you or don’t demand from you. Know that it’s okay to say no.

Avoid noisy and crowded spaces if you are already feeling exhausted and overwhelmed. No choice but to be in that space? Wear or carry a supportive crystal to help shield your aura – choose intuitively from your own collection or pick from amethyst, smoky quartz, lepidolite, black tourmaline, carnelian, sugilite hematite, pearls, turquoise, tiger eye and larimar.

Know that it’s okay to honour your own needs. Come home when you need to. Move into a quieter space or another room if you need to.

Manage sensitive kids and teenagers with awareness for their sensitivities right now. Help them to make sound choices around their sensitivities and listen to them when they say they can’t do something or can’t go somewhere. Support them and support yourself.

 

There are some blessings with the current energies. It’s a great time for all forms of planning, self-awareness, creative work, meditation and spiritual connection. Use your hypersensitivity in positive ways and see it for the gift that it is.

This is a little video I recorded earlier this week. Perhaps you’ll find that helpful too.

Thinking of you and sending so much love, Nicole <3 xoxo

Join My Ancestors and Songlines Crystal Healing Grid

ancestors and songlines crystal grid

“The songs of our ancestors are also the songs of our children.”
― Philip Carr-Gomm

 

Here on our farm I’ve made a special healing grid for us, as 2016 staggers to a close.

This crystal grid is anchored by an Aboriginal stone club head representing masculine energy, and a selenite fish tail representing feminine energy.

It is ringed by Cockatoo Dreaming beads (painted seeds).

Within that ring are also tumbled clear quartz and ruby in fuschite.

Extending out from the beads are a ring of chevron amethyst.

Beyond that are natural quartz generator points, tumbled quartz and black tourmaline.

This is the foundation of the grid. I will be adding more stones to it in the days ahead.

2016-12-05-18-12-37

The grid sits beneath a Crow’s Ash tree – an ancient Australian teak tree which is now host to a young fig within its upper branches. Staghorns and elkhorns are supported in the higher boughs. This tree is a favourite roost for the powerful owl that comes and sits here often. The trees help to anchor the energy of the grid deep into the earth, and to reach it far up into the sky.

I’ve created this grid for energetic support for us as we shift from the old energy into the new. For support from our ancestors and guides as we shift old family patterns and beliefs that no longer serve us. As we pattern break for ourselves and our loved ones.

I’ve created this grid to help our feet find our souls’ own songlines so that we can become part of this great shift of consciousness by being who we came here to be, and doing what we came here to do as we move into 2017 and this dawning new energetic era.

Can you feel the energy of this gracious and wise old tree when you tune in to the grid?

powerful-owl2-25052015

I will be performing a healing ceremony and meditation on the evening of the 14th of December to coincide the with full moon in the last of the old energy, and then again on December 29 to herald the energies of 2017 under the new moon.

If you’d like to be a specific and named part of this grid, and to be a part of the ceremony and ritual please add your name below, or over at our page on facebook. I’ll program and add a crystal to the grid for you, so that you can be anchored into this energy too.

These named stones will radiate out in circles from this foundation grid. I’ll post pictures as the grid develops.

Hugs and love, Nicole xx

My Favourite Crystals For Spiritual Connection

2013-12-15 19.05.45

“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.”
~ W.B. Yeats

 

Meditation, connecting with our guides, getting into a channelling space or spiritual flow, doing readings or healings, clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, working with energy, astral travelling, improving our psychic and metaphysical abilities – all of these things can be made stronger and easier with the help of crystals.

Here are my favourite stones for connection, and how you can use them too.

Amethyst

A great all-rounder. Helps beginner psychics to tune in and trust. Helps advanced practitioners to deepen and strengthen their abilities. Perfect for helping you with ‘seeing and hearing’ all things metaphysical. Activates Crown and Third Eye chakras. Want to meet your guides? Use amethyst.

 

Labradorite

A stone for strengthening intuition and healing abilities, especially the ability to channel energy through your hands. Wakes up latent psychic abilities and taps you into past life memories clearly and easily. Helps you to bring through answers and guidance for self and others. A terrific stone for personal growth and reflection.

Clear Quartz

Opens the Crown Chakra, infuses you with white light, and enhances all of your natural psychic and intuitive abilities. Clear quartz will help show you who you are, what your gifts are, and how you can best use them. Can be used for all forms of metaphysical work. Brilliant for calming the mind and helping you expand your energy and tune in to messages. Accelerates spiritual growth. Not all stones will suit beginners (you may get a really bumpy ride that is uncomfortably fast!). A great stone to program and for all kinds of healing and grid work. A stunning meditation companion stone. Connects you into Higher Guides. Builds discipline and focus.

 

Orange or Golden Calcite

The perfect beginners stone for those who wish to channel information for themselves and others. Gentle energies to enhance clear communication with the higher realms. Helps calm mental chatter and strengthens trust in the messages and images you receive. Boosts creativity and intuition. An amazing stone for doing all forms of channelled writing and art.

 

Lapis Lazuli

This is THE stone for connecting into past lives, past life remembrance and the Akashic Records. Also good for astral travel and lucid dreaming. Not a beginners stone, but those who are attracted to lapis are never beginners anyway, even if they feel that way to start. Brings rapid remembering of your healing and psychic abilities. Helps change makers to bring about that change. Enhances the Throat-Heart-Crown Chakra connections and promotes clear speaking. Reduces stress and anxiety, helping you to accept that you are different and that you have a calling. A stone for those who want to dedicate their lives to some form of spiritual or higher service, including heart-centred entrepreneurs, leaders and business people.

Rhyolite

A delicious stone for connecting into off-world energies, and for all forms of channelled and automatic writing – especially writing with your Guides and Higher Self. Some rhyolites also aid connection to the fairy realms, to nature and nature spirits, to the oceans and cetaceans, and to trees. A soothing and grounding stone that holds much magic. Used in meditation it will help you to see energy, auras and to bring breakthroughs in your thoughts, behaviour patterns and healing. Stimulates creativity and innovation, including guided wisdoms that enhance your own abilities and knowledge.

Rose Quartz

This yummy stone nurtures us as it opens and activates our Heart and Crown chakras. This stone works from love, and helps all that you do to come from love. The perfect stone for connecting into your Guardian Angel, and the Angels of others, as well as to guides who come to work with us offering messages of love, hope and support. A terrific stone for children, and for beginners, but don’t underestimate its power. Every lightworker needs a rose quartz for nourishing and supporting their emotional and spiritual energies. A giving and teaching stone.

Crystals to Help With the Current 2015 Energies

2013-04-04 10.54.00

“Theologians may quarrel, but the mystics of the world speak the same language.”
~ Meister Eckhart

 

Are you feeling it? This wild, crazy energy we’re sitting in right now. If you’re the slightest bit spiritually or psychically sensitive you’ll know what I mean.

Of course, each of us will be impacted differently, and we may experience a number of sensations or emotions over a given day, or a week. So I’ve put together a little crystal First Aid Kit that you might find useful or comforting right now.

Below you’ll find my crystal recommendations and suggestions for use. I’ve also included suggestions for children and pets, because they are so often sensitive to these shifting energies. You can pop the stone in your pocket, place it by your bed or desk, hold it when you meditate, or even wear it as jewelry. Small tumbled stones will work as well as large stones – just go with what you’re drawn to. We’ve chosen stones that should be relatively easy for you to find, or that may already be in your collections!

Red Jasper 

Red Jasper is a handy stone for physical strength and stamina, for supporting tired adrenals, and for anchoring us securely in our bodies so that all our chakras are aligned. It is a reassuring and grounding stone that also alleviates all the base chakra stuff – worries around personal security, money, family issues, and safety needs.

A good stone for anxious children, or people who need to face the world when they’d rather be snuggled under the doona back at home.

Lapis Lazuli

If you’re feeling a huge expansion of your psychic and energetic abilities, but you’re unstable in that energy, then Lapis Lazuli will help you to relax into safely opening up to your psychic self.

Lapis is also highly shielding and protective – a little like wearing a psychic force-field around you that stops you picking up the lower vibration energies of other people or places. A super stone for empaths and people who are healers and helpers.

Smoky Quartz

Smoky Quartz is a brilliant stone for transmuting negative energies and fears. If you’re scattered, confused, troubled, or feeling deeply upset by the turbulent energies right now then Smoky Quartz will gently reassert a sense of protection and safety. It also acts as an antenna, helping to clear and strengthen your energetic connection to Guides and others with whom you may work. A powerful stone for getting out of your head and connecting into your own truth and wisdom.

This is also a great stone for children who overthink things, who obsess, or who worry in ways that effect sleep or eating.

If your cat is going a little crazy, place a piece of smoky quartz where they sleep.

Amethyst

Amethyst will restore a sense of sacred balance, shifting you from your head to your heart centre. It is a profoundly giving and nurturing stone that helps anchor you in compassion and kindness. If you’re feeling cranky and impatient, or more judgmental than usual (especially of yourself!) then Amethyst will help with that. It also aids in peaceful sleep, meaningful dreams, and spiritual connection. It will allow you to begin trusting your intuition, and it will strengthen that ability within you.

This is a great stone for children with bright minds and imaginations who can get carried away with worrying about the future.

It is also a stone for calling in Angels and Ancestors. A beautiful stone to place in the bedding of old or ill pets, as it helps with peaceful passing.

Petrified Wood

If these current energies are upsetting your digestion, your hormone levels or your sleep patterns, so that you feel uncomfortable, bloated, listless or out of sorts, then Petrified Wood will help you body to restore its natural balance.

It is a gentle detoxifier, and is very good for grounding us in times of uncertainty and stress. It’s also a perfect stone for those of you who give to excess, leaving yourself drained and energetically unstable.

Use this one for pets who frighten easily, or who are jittery, anxious or frightened. Also good for children who are feeling anxious, unusually shy or overwhelmed.

Labradorite

If you’re feeling muddled, distracted, and like you’ve lost the plot, then Labradorite will sort out your frazzled brain and restore your confidence and direction. If you started strong this year, then promptly fizzled out or fell in a heap from this crazy energy, Labradorite will recalibrate your vibration and get you from variance to synchronicity. It’s also a stunning stone for spiritual nurture and connection.

For older children who need support with their learning and studies, and for you, if there’s lots to do but you feel like your brain left the building, Labradorite is the perfect stone for you right now.

Clear Quartz

For connecting psychically, for powerful meditations, for channeling, psychic connection and riding these energies with confidence, Clear Quartz will get you there.

A great stone for enhancing spiritual dreams, and for any kind of writing, planning or thinking. It will amplify your connection and give you confidence and clarity.
