A Week For Psychic Connection – Monday Oracle 23 October 2017

I will soothe you and heal you,
I will bring you roses.
I too have been covered with thorns.

~ Jalaluddin Rumi

Hello, Lovelies!

If you read my forecast for October, you’ll know that it’s a month of energies of love, friendship, community and togetherness. It’s also a month for getting creative and for self-acceptance.

Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts which the oracle card Mysticism brings us.

So, what awareness does Mysticism bring us this week?

This is a week of unusually heightened energies. Your intuition will be strong, and your psychic ability ramped up.

In your meditations expect to connect not only with your usual Guides and Angels, but also with your loved ones who’ve crossed over, and with Ancestors from your family line whom you’ve never met in this lifetime. Never connected with any kind of energy in meditation before? This week is an excellent time to try!

These guided meditations may help you:

Simple Meditation For Connecting With Your Guides

Dreams that deliver messages and that help you make decisions or come to realisations are another key feature of this week’s energies.

It’s also a week for insights, revelations, psychic messages, energetic healing, working with your crystals, oracle or tarot cards and for journalling to find answers.

Need help or direction? Ask for a sign this week, or to be shown where to go next. This blog post will help you do that: How To Ask For A Sign

Supportive crystals this week?

Labradorite strengthens intuition and healing abilities, especially the ability to channel energy through your hands, and helps you to bring through answers and guidance for yourself and others. A terrific stone for personal growth and reflection. Red Jasper is my go-to stone for mental, physical and emotional rejuvenation in October. Deeply grounding, it helps you connect to your heart and your truth. Smoky Quartz gifts inner strength and the ability to listen deeply. Orange Calcite connects you in to inspiration and is a wonderful beginner stone for tuning in to the spiritual realms. Expect accelerated connection with your Guides!

 

Helpful essential oils?

I’m loving Young Living’s Clarity and Believe blends for October. Use Clarity for focus, inspiration and breakthroughs. Dab a drop on your Crown Chakra and the soles of your feet, inhale directly or add to your diffuser. Use Believe when you are doubting yourself and want to find your confidence and self-belief. It’s great to inhale directly, diffuse or add a drop to Heart Chakra and inner wrists. A few drops added to your bath make for magical self-care.

Want to make your own blend? Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own for you this month, but they also make a delicious combination for diffusing. Frankincense elevates our mood and promotes spiritual connection and intuition, Lavender keeps us in flow and relaxed,  Ylang Ylang opens our hearts and is supportive when we feel anxious or overwhelmed, and Bergamot for joy, gratitude and optimism. To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser. You can find the oils here.

 

If you’d really like to learn how to tap into your intuitive and psychic abilities come join us for Retreat at the end of November – yes, you can be a complete beginner, and yes, it’s going to be fabulous!  More details here.

Holding you, as always, in my thoughts, prayers and meditations, and intending for you a life of abundance and joy, where you are no longer limited by your doubts.

All my love,

Nicole ❤ xx

PS – Monday’s oracle card, ‘Mysticism’, is from the Chakra Wisdom Oracle Deck by Tori Hartman. I use any cards shown as a prompt for channelled messages and my own intuitive wisdom, so my take is sometimes quite different to the meaning found in a book. 

 

How to use Intuition to Access Your Psychic Abilities

“Cease trying to work everything out with your minds. It will get you nowhere. Live by intuition and inspiration and let your whole life be Revelation.”
Eileen Caddy

 

 

We all have intuitive abilities – intuition is a glorious part of our human condition.  Problem is, most of us don’t know how to use it.

Today I’m going to take myself right back to the beginning. I’ll share with you some of the stronger intuitive moments I had before I began to really work with my psychic abilities.  I hope that by sharing them, you’ll be better able to recognise these moments in your own lives.  These aren’t fancy or sophisticated.  These are raw moments that led me to a different decision, understanding or action than if I’d just been coming from my head.

The more you listen to your intuition, the more your body attunes to those messages. It begins to heighten your sensitivity. This then begins to develop your extraordinary sensory perception (ESP) and opens the door to your psychic capabilities. All of the small messages to which we pay attention pave the way for the stronger and more important messages to come.

Intuition and gut instinct communicate with us in so many ways. You might get a flash of strong emotion, an image or a movie in your head, a feeling in your body, a sense of deja vu.  You might have an incredibly vivid dream, or a waking dream. Or, you might just know…

Here are some of my own experiences, as a guide for you.

Some of them weren’t about positive things:

In primary school I woke up in the middle of the night because something was wrong.  I could smell smoke, and I felt very anxious. I padded through the house in my pyjamas, but everyone was asleep and everything was as it should be. I climbed back into bed and all I could think about was a girl I knew at school. I wondered if she was angry with me.  The next morning I found out that her house had burned down in the middle of the night.  They were all okay. And their house was too far away from mine for me to have heard a siren or to have smelled anything.  They lost everything.

Early in high school, I had a creepy feeling about a family friend. While everyone else liked him, he made me incredibly uneasy. To me his eyes looked ‘too bright’ – like a bird’s eyes’s somehow, always watching, and watching too intensely. Although I couldn’t explain it, I felt very unsafe around him, and I felt that he was full of secrets. Nothing could convince me that he was a nice guy. I could ‘feel’ a wrongness about him somehow.  One day when I was left at home alone with him (he was working as a tradesman and I was home sick from school) he tried to sexually assault me. Mum came home unexpectedly, and I made sure after that to never be around him alone.  Years later, he went to prison – convicted of serial pedophilia and child pornography crimes, mostly against very young boys.

During a university break, a friend asked me to travel north to pick up a car she had just purchased.  We would drive it home together, stopping at beaches and interesting places along the way. Initially I said yes. It sounded like fun. But then everything seemed to conspire against me. I couldn’t get time off from work, I got food poisoning, one of my grandparents went to hospital. Nothing was working in my favour. I ended up saying no, but instead of feeling bad, I was flooded with this strange sense of relief. About two days after she left for her journey I got this metallic taste in my mouth, and I could smell something like hot brakes on a car.  Then I had a tumbling sensation, like being on one of those wild rides at a sideshow.  It came and went for about a week, and I found it distressing, but I had no idea what it was all about. Then it just stopped.  A few days later my friend’s parents called to me she had rolled her car on a dirt road heading down  a hill to a remote beach, and been badly injured. She spent months in hospital.


Some of my intuitive experiences have also been about very positive things:

At primary school I sat an examination to win a scholarship to one of Brisbane’s private high schools. Part of the examination required us to write creatively using one of a range of sentences as a starter. The words poured out of me and I just knew they were good. Although I felt unsure about my performance with the rest of the long examination, I was sure about that essay.  I knew it would win me a scholarship.  I felt a great certainty. The day that the letter came, I also knew. I just knew something really good was about to happen.  I felt light and happy all day.  When I came home mum had bought a cake and my grandparents had bought me a posy of flowers. My letter of offer was propped up on the kitchen table beside them. I’d won.

One day I was invited to a costume party.  I had no costume, and no idea where to get one from. I had to drive across town to meet a friend, and for some reason I decided not to take the freeway.  As I drove through a particular suburb, I decided for some inexplicable reason to turn right off the main road.  There in front of me was a massive costume hire place. I felt so very clever! And I found an awesome pirate outfit…

Many of you will already know this story, and it has happened long after I began working with my psychic gifts.  But it shows you how my intuition is still guiding me, even when my mind is somewhere else.  I was shopping, late one scorchingly hot summer afternoon, and I heard a sound like a peeping chicken in the shopping centre carpark. I couldn’t ignore it.  I was compelled to go and investigate, although I needed to get home because I had plans I’d been looking forward to all day. Something made me get out of the car, and go looking for the chicken. Of course it wasn’t a chicken – instead I found a tiny puppy, almost dead from heat and dehydration. I brought him home, and took him to the vet, who didn’t hold out much hope that he would survive the night. He proved everyone wrong, and Bert became a wonderful member of our family.

Beautiful Bert!

All you ever have to do with your intuition is listen, and go with what you are feeling or being shown. The more you use it, the easier it gets.  Intuition becomes stronger. Your senses become attuned to more of the flow of Universal wisdom and energy. We are all intuitive. That is our birthright. Like me, sometimes in life, for no apparent reason, you’ll just know.

Often, as people move into a space of psychic awakening, their daily lives becomes a constant stream of intuitive thoughts and experiences. This can be very confronting or disruptive but it settles down quickly the more that you honour and accept this intuitive aspect of yourself.

How about you? What has happened for you in your life that was guided by intuition? I’d love to know!

Much love to you, Nicole xx

In Order to Really Hear You Need To Stop Talking

“For now she need not think of anybody. She could be herself, by herself. And that was what now she often felt the need of – to think; well not even to think. To be silent; to be alone. All the being and the doing, expansive, glittering, vocal, evaporated; and one shrunk, with a sense of solemnity, to being oneself, a wedge-shaped core of darkness, something invisible to others… and this self having shed its attachments was free for the strangest adventures.”
~ Virginia Woolf, To the Lighthouse

 

I’m leading a retreat right now, focussed on helping people to connect to their intuition.

Intuition is something all of us have. But often we come to a place in our lives where we can no longer hear that wisdom. Our inner voice becomes drowned out by the relentless chatter of an over-busy mind.

What helps to restore that flow is silence. When we cut out the television, the internet, the text messages. When we cut out the conversation and the need to be present for others, when we strip away the external distractions, then..

…then we can begin to be present for ourselves. We can become witness to our own truth. We can learn to hear and trust our inner voice.

Today on Retreat we are going to enter that quiet space. And in that space, I know that we shall find ourselves.

I expect it to be a day of high emotion. Reunions are like that. To be home with ourselves again will be at once strange and oh so beautiful. But a little scary too, after having been apart for so long.

How about you? Can you find some quiet time to reconnect? I promise you it’s good for your soul.

Much love to you, Nicole <3 xx

We’re on Retreat!

“In order to understand the world, one has to turn away from it on occasion.”
~ Albert Camus

 

Hello Lovelies!

We’re on Retreat at Sangsurya in Byron Bay for the next six days, as I teach a group of delightful souls how to reconnect with their intuition, and to use that intuition as a guiding force in their lives.

Ben has the ute nearly packed (for our second trip!) with singing bowls, journals, crystals and all manner of other delicious metaphysical tools.

Now for a cup of tea, and to remember to change out of my pyjamas before we go!

The astrological line-up right now makes this a powerful time for connecting to and working with your own intuition, so make some quiet time in the next few days, tune in, and then trust! It’s a great time for insights, breakthroughs and revelations.

I’ll be posting each day as normal, because I have lots to share about these current energies. And don’t feel too sad that you couldn’t be with us. My wonderful team are filming the whole show, and we’ll be turning it into a self-paced online study course for you next year.

In fact I have a few new courses coming up – online, home study, some awesome long retreats and some short mini-courses and events in Brisbane (including one for kids and big kids who love fairies!) – as well as our usual Soul Sanctuary retreat at Byron Bay at the end of this year. I’ll make sure to post something about them all in the next few days.

Okay, I must get on with it or I’ll never leave the farm and there will be no-one to run the Retreat.

Much love, Nicole xx

Just a Couple of Places Left for our Intuition Retreat in September!

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?”
~ Marianne Williamson

 

Are you hiding your Light?

Have you forgotten this energy within you? Or maybe you’ve got no idea how to connect to it anymore?

Do you have a dream, but you can’t find a way forward with it?

Have you got no dream at all?

When did you stop trusting yourself?

Intuition is something I use every day. To be honest, I’d struggle without it. It informs almost everything that I do. But I also find it is one of the least understood and utilised energies in the lives of most people.

If we ignore our intuition we disempower ourselves. I’ve seen too many people walk away from what would serve them and bring them flow and joy because they couldn’t hear the whisperings of their heart, or they didn’t trust that guiding voice within them.

When we are tuned into our intuition we quickly know which relationships are working for us, and which ones won’t. We become confident about our career choices, our health choices, and what is most needed for our highest good from moment to moment.

Destructive patterns and self-sabotage fall away. Self-love becomes easy and joyful. We become tuned in to a life path that really works for us. Teachers appear. Answers come. Healing happens. Right relationships and divine synchronicities fall into place for us. We find the strength to pick ourselves up and work through obstacles until we come out the other side. We are kept safe. We thrive. We learn to shine.

But how do you tune in when all your life you’ve been taught to ignore this guiding force?

I’ve developed a residential retreat to deeply immerse you in the energy of intuition, so that you can learn how to access this energy for yourself, and to trust this flow of guidance and natural psychic connection within your life. Even better, the astrological energies during and after the retreat will positively enhance your ability to connect with intuition and to cement that connection for the years to come.

This is the most comprehensive course on Intuitive Practice that I have ever created. The retreat is deliberately timed to coincide with a powerful New Moon and a partial solar eclipse. The retreat will run from September 10 to 15, 2015, in Byron Bay, Australia.

During this time the New Moon is in Virgo – the Maiden’s Moon, as this phase is known, is perfect for solitary pursuits, alone time, personal growth and intuitive connection. Still, it gets better. Shortly after the retreat ends we will also have the Spring Equinox on September 23rd, a Supermoon and a total lunar eclipse on September 28, and then a visit from the Comet Catalina on October 1. Imagine how strongly you will be able to connect, transform and grow with all of these forces guiding and strengthening you and your intuitive ability!

  • Intuition, how it works, and how to recognise and connect to that inner guidance
  • Discovering your blocks and sabotage around intuition

If you are ready to change the flow of your life and to open up to your best self and your brightest possibilities this course is for you.

I won’t be running this retreat again any time soon. It’s designed as a one-of, to make the most of this extraordinary convergence of energies. So if you want to join us this is your one chance, and there are only a couple of places left. It will be a space of nurture, an opportunity to meet like-minded people, a time for you to gain valuable clarity about your life and your next steps from here.

Are You Ready to Learn To Use Your Intuition?

“Come from the heart, the true heart, not the head. When in doubt, choose the heart. This does not mean to deny your own experiences and that which you have empirically learned through the years. It means to trust your self to integrate intuition and experience. There is a balance, a harmony to be nurtured, between the head and the heart. When the intuition rings clear and true, loving impulses are favored.”
~ Brian L. Weiss

 

I had two residential retreats planned for 2015. My Beginners Channelling Intensive (long booked out – sorry, but you can put your name down for the next one in 2017!) is just three weeks away, and my end of year Soul Sanctuary Retreat (still some places available) will be run from 28 November to 4 December.

I hadn’t planned to run a third retreat. But recently I was offered an extra place in the calendar at Sangsurya this year. (I waited a long four years just to be able to get onto the short list for this venue, and if you’ve ever been to a retreat there before you’ll know what an incredible and transformative energy that venue holds.) I knew that if Tony was making additional retreat space available and offering it to me first above his other trainers and teachers, it was for a very good reason.

I briefly toyed with the idea of a second Beginners Channelling group, but then I looked at the dates, the moon phases and the various other energetic influences available for those dates and I did what I always do in these circumstances – I tuned into my intuition…

Result?

I have put together an incredible course on learning to use and trust your own intuitive abilities! As much as I use my Guides and other psychic tools, intuition is the one thing I tune into and use every single day. When I’m open to my intuition my life flows, and miracles happen.

This is the most comprehensive course on Intuitive Practice that I have ever created. I have no doubt that this course will fill quickly, and I am uncertain if I will offer this course again in the next few years. The retreat will run from September 10 to 15, 2015, in Byron Bay, Australia.

These dates coincide with a powerful New Moon and a partial solar eclipse. This New Moon is in Virgo – and the Maiden’s Moon, as this phase is known, is perfect for solitary pursuits, alone time, personal growth and intuitive connection. Are you getting goosebumpy here? I know I was when I realised the amazing timing of this retreat. But it gets better. Shortly after the retreat ends we will also have the Spring Equinox on September 23rd, a Supermoon and a total lunar eclipse on September 28, and then a visit from the Comet Catalina on October 1. Imagine how strongly you will be able to connect, transform and grow with all of these forces guiding and strengthening you and your intuitive ability!

A Little Taste of Our Sanctuary

2014-12-04 09.25.42

“Each positive thought is your refuge and your sanctuary, where in that thoughtful moment, you are safe.”
~ Bryant McGill, Simple Reminders: Inspiration for Living Your Best Life

 

It’s our final day of the 2014 Soul Sanctuary Retreat, and I thought I’d share just a tiny part of what we’ve been doing.

We’ve come together and we’ve made magic, we’ve meditated and we’ve shared stories that help with our healing and becoming.

2014-11-29 15.53.50

We’ve made a collective mandala, that holds all of our energies, personalities, love and positive intentions.

2014-12-04 06.19.02

And we’ve turned that mandala into individual talismans with crystals and colours that support us, and our power chakras. Yep, that’s right. We made gorgeous jewels!

2014-12-05 05.44.19

We created Vision Boards to uplift us in the coming months, and to remind us of what is important in our lives, and the future we wish to actively manifest for ourselves.

2014-12-05 05.48.15

We’ve made a personal Sacred Mandala that holds our poetry and philosophy for 2015 – they are symbolic of all that is dear to us and all that we are becoming.

2014-12-05 05.47.09

We’ve wandered through the gardens, having time in nature, and connecting with the earth. And we’ve feasted on a smorgasbord of delicious fresh food, all local and organic and cooked by our own personal chefs – Deb and Claire. (We love you!!!)

2014-12-04 09.25.06

We’ve talked with fairies and Guides, learned how to do readings for each another, and found ways to deeply tap into our own intuition and inner knowing.

2014-12-03 13.33.19

We’ve played with essential oils, learned new ways to ground, connect, release and nurture ourselves. We’ve had healings and been given oils and essences just for us. We’ve enjoyed massive nurture, friendship, laughter, a few tears, and loads of hugs.

2014-12-03 10.04.58

In short, it’s been a fabulous time.

I can’t wait for Soul Sanctuary 2015 so we can do it all again!
