“Through my love for you, I want to express my love for the whole cosmos, the whole of humanity, and all beings. By living with you, I want to learn to love everyone and all species. If I succeed in loving you, I will be able to love everyone and all species on Earth… This is the real message of love.” 
~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Meditation is the cornerstone of my life. It is the first thing I do when I wake up each morning. It is the last thing I do before I go to bed.

I don’t just meditate to find stillness and peace. I also use meditation for shamanic and mystical work. I use it to connect with and help my students, I use it to access healing, and to share and support energies.

This week I’m working on some very specific areas for emotional and spiritual healing that may also have an impact on physical well-being too.

For the next few days I am focusing on supporting you to move through and begin to resolve feelings of loss, fear, anxiety, overwhelm, emotional isolation and powerlessness. My aim is to find the places where emotion has become stuck inside you, causing you to become out of alignment. I am also looking for the old stories, traumas and memories which are subconsciously shaping you in opposition to your soul’s true nature. In my meditations I will dissolve these outmoded energies and stories, returning them to love and releasing their patterns from your energetic field.

As your energy comes back into alignment with your true nature, your vibration will rise and you will be more easily able to express yourself creatively and emotionally. It will increase your sense of self-awareness and self-trust.

I meditate twice a day, morning and evening. I also connect with some people during my night-flying practices. If you’d like me to include you or a loved one specifically in my meditations just let me know in the comments below.  And, of course, I love getting feedback about anything you notice as a result of my meditations.

Much love, Nicole xx

An Extra Healing Meditation

2015-03-04 22.22.32

“No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.”
~ Charles Dickens

 

Tonight I’m performing a special two-hour healing meditation, using the Love Mala I made earlier in the month.

The purpose of tonight’s meditation is to help in the release of patterns of thought and behaviour that have limited us and kept us small or wounded. It is also to open us up to our fuller potential, and the ability to recognise and work with our own gifts with ease and grace.

You may already have a bead on this mala, or be included under the ‘everyone’ bead, but I’d also like to extend that offer that if you would like me to send specific healing to you or someone who you love, that you leave a message for me below, or pop over to my facebook page and leave a message there.

If you’d like to join me in meditation, I’ll be in that space between 8pm and 11pm Brisbane time tonight – 21 March. Feel free to join me for all or part of that time (I know, it’s a long time if you’re not in practice).

If you want to receive some of that healing energy and prayer, there is nothing specific you need to do, but I also encourage you to sit or lay quietly for part of that time, close your eyes, soften your body, and then just be in a space of allowing. Let yourself be open to any feelings, images or sensations that come.

And, of course, feel free to give me any feedback afterwards.

Much, much love to you in these exciting times,

Nicole xx

Bee Breath Yoga Meditation ‘Bhramari’ – for the Throat Chakra

This meditation is based upon a yoga practice called “Bhramari”. It is a meditation where you hum like a bee!!!


It is a stunningly simple practice, which can have very powerful results. This meditation reduces stress and stress response within the body. It also cleanses, opens and heals the throat chakra.

Over time, this meditation will help to clear mucous in the throat and widen any constrictions, balance and lower blood pressure, normalize the endocrine system, and settle insulin and cortisol spikes that are our body’s fight or flight response. It is a terrific practice for anyone with thyroid issues, and can be done by anyone, regardless of their age or health.  It’s also great for hesitant speakers.

Bee Breath creates a healing vibration within the body, aids sleep, promotes blood flow to the brain, and calms anger and anxiety. It also boosts your energy without making you ‘hyper’ because it is a grounding practice.

Kids love it too, and you can do it on your own, or as part of a group. In a group meditation the group will create sounds that are truly grounding and uplifting, and which can facilitate great healing and release.


To do the meditation:
1. Sit comfortably with a straight spine. It doesn’t matter if this is cross legged, on a chair, or even on your bed! Put your hands on your knees, palms down.
2. Relax and bring your focus to your breath. Just be aware of the natural rhythm of your breath, don’t force it. Let your breath bring you to a place of greater calm within your body.
3. Now that you feel a little more relaxed, take a breath in. On the outbreath, keep your mouth shut and your teeth together and make a humming sound. You can be as loud or as quiet as you want. In fact it’s fun to vary the loudness.
4. Keep breathing in, in silence, and breathing out with humming until you really build up a vibration in your skull. Eventually you can fill your whole body up with vibration. It feels weird at first but stick with it.
5. Build up from a minute or two to start with. If you feel dizzy, stop! Start again tomorrow. Over time, doing ten minutes a day of this meditation will bring about great results.

Here’s a 3 minute recording I made to get you started:

And as promised, here’s the picture of Bert, Italian Leather Boot Destroyer, adding his own special energy to the background of that meditation.

Never turn your back on a Bert! Now for some calming Bee Breaths... LOL
