Final Day of Retreat – and an offer for you!

“The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.” 
John Muir

Good morning, Lovelies (or good evening if it’s that time of day in your part of the world),

It’s our final day of retreat and, as usual, I have been up before dawn – meditating for our group, for you, and for the world. The sun is coming up now, and there are whales breaching out in the bay outside my window. It’s going to be a magical day.

Here’s the centre of the grid in the centre of the hall where we work. I’m sharing the image because I’ve programmed crystals for you, during this time of the eclipse and Lion’s Gate, to help you find clarity and direction in the days ahead and to connect more deeply to your intuition and wise self. You’re always included in my work. Please know how loved and valued you are to me.

In these new post-2012 energies everything has become easier and I am thrilled with how far my students have come in such a short time. They have gobbled up not just the course content as I have shared shamanic secrets for their meditations, soul connection, energy work and finding their own life direction through channelling and sacred geometry – we’ve also covered some incredibly advanced bonus material I thought I might never share with a group. In this new energy souls are ready for this work, hungry for this work, and as their teacher I am grateful to advance them in every way possible.

How have my students reacted to this course so far? Many have told me that doing the work ‘feels like coming home’, ‘like they have found the thing that was missing in their life’ and, gratifyingly, that ‘they have found their soul tribe’ with the other people here on the course and in my wider community.

Post-retreat, after a short rest, we’ll be continuing our work for another two months of online instruction and webinars to cement the learning experiences we’re shared here at retreat. We’ll take this new learning deeper and truly anchor these as life-changing habits.

This current course filled in seven hours. The demand was so high that we have scheduled a repeat of this same course and retreat for February. If you’d like to be included in our mailing list and be notified about this event BEFORE we release details to the public please contact us here so we can add your name to our course mailing list. It is likely that this next course will also fill in record time, so if you’d like to join us being on this list will help you get to the front of the queue.

We’ll be sending you energy, love and light in our healing meditation today.

Biggest hugs and love, Nicole ❤ xx

Restful Rambles

2015-07-03 14.48.35

“We need the tonic of wildness…  At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.”
~ Henry David Thoreau, Walden: Or, Life in the Woods

I have spent the past two days at the farm grounding myself back into my body, and giving myself some soul nourishment time. There have been naps, cups of tea and book reading, and rambles through nature with the dogs at my heels.

I hugged the big Hoop Pine and pulled its healing magic into me. I meditated with its gracious company and felt my energy restored. (Learn how to do that here.)

2015-07-03 14.56.35

I gazed into the tangle of greenery and watched birds and koalas going about their daily business.

I rejoiced in the orange trumpet flower that covers the old creamery turned log storage. After which I loaded a wheelbarrow full of wood for the evening’s fire.

2015-07-03 14.54.08

I plucked a bunch of fragrant erlicheer jonquils for my bedside table. Their fragrance always reminds me of my mum.

2015-07-03 14.52.55

I inspected the strawberries and sweet-peas, which are happily co-existing at my back door.

2015-07-03 14.55.48

The King Orchid is putting forth lots of lush new growth and I expect spectacular flowers come spring.

A posy of camelia flowers for the kitchen table.

Then a tray of roasted root vegetables for dinner. After a big week in the channelling space, and spending most of my time in the higher chakras of my body – lots of walking, tree meditations, being in nature, and eating yellow and orange root vegetables draws my energy back down into my lower chakras, firming up my connection to the earth again. If you do a lot of energy work, ever feel spacy or have had a shock or trauma these simple measures will help bring you back into grounded alignment gently and naturally.

Sending much love to you <3 Nicole xoxo

Every Bead A Prayer

2015-07-01 07.24.39

“What is a teacher? I’ll tell you: it isn’t someone who teaches something, but someone who inspires the student to give of her best in order to discover what she already knows.”
~ Paulo Coelho, The Witch of Portobello

 

 

You may remember that at the very beginning of my Retreat preparation I made a mala, with one bead for each of my students, and one for each of my support team.

Twice a day for the month before the retreat I prayed that mala, sending love, healing and energy work to each person. Setting my intent for them to find their way and to receive everything they needed for their Highest Good during our time together on retreat.

Soon my fingers knew every bead. And so did my heart.

There was Helen and Paul and Margot. This one was Cherie. The next one was Brooke…

When we all came together I kept holding space and praying that mala until just before the end of the retreat.

Then I broke down the string of beads, took each one, and made it into a mala of its very own.

I was up late into the night working on them after everyone had gone to bed. It was the first thing I did in the morning after my meditation, trying to get them all finished so that I could present them on the last day.

2015-07-01 07.23.41

Finally they were all done, and I held each one up to be blessed.

2015-07-01 07.25.44

It was with mixed emotions that I lifted all the malas up over my head to wear them one last time before I handed them over to each student.

 

I had carried them all with me, and now I was letting them go.

They are still in my heart, and I’m so very proud of them. It has been my absolute pleasure to be their teacher. I know that they will shine much positive energy and love out into the world.

Here’s me, on the final morning. Thoroughly exhausted, emotional, and bursting with love for them all.
