A Gorgeous Assortment of Crystals!

“Look deep into nature and then you will understand everything better.” ~ Albert Einstein


I’m surrounded by crystals right now.

Many of them I’ll holding in meditation so I can channel the meaning of them, ready for my Pop-Up Store and workshops in early November.

Some of them I’m channelling and putting aside to be allocated as part of the packs I’ll put together for my Year of ME Planner. For those people who want one, I’ll choose one of the stones specifically for them, as their meditation stone and gratitude anchor for 2019.

It’s my favourite time of the year, when my home is overflowing with crystals, magical things, essential oils and workshop preparations, and behind all of that the scents of Christmas baking. What’s not to love?

And here’s a sneak preview of something I’m absolutely thrilled about…

It’s a mala I have designed to support you during the energies of 2019 and beyond. Each of the crystals of the month in our 2019 Planner is represented in this mala, which has been lovingly made for me using fair-trade craftswomen in India who have hand-knotted the malas using gemstones and rudraksha, before having them blessed in a Hindu temple. The malas then sit in an energy grid on my farm where I meditate with them before they are ready for you to use in your own meditations. Their energy is incredible and I can’t wait to share them with you!

Both the printed edition of the planner and the mala are a limited release, so be ready to pre-order yours soon! I know you’ll just love them.

Biggest hugs to you from here amidst the stones, Nicole ❤ xx

Good morning, Lovelies!

We were swamped with entries for our recent Meditation Mala competition. 431 to be exact!

Thanks to all of you who entered. We so appreciate you and having you as part of our community.

The winner of this mala is:

Congratulations, Satisha! We know you’re going to love using this beautiful White Sandalwood mala.

For all of you who were hoping to win I have good news: you’ll be pleased to know that we will give away another one soon AND we’re working hard on an online mala meditation course and bead kits based on the workshop we ran over the weekend at our Pop Up Shop – so that you can make your own mala with some help from me and then learn how to use it.

Biggest hugs and love to you, Nicole ❤ xx

Win A Handmade Meditation Mala (and be like Chuck Norris!)

 “Exercise, prayer, and meditation are examples of calming rituals. They have been shown to induce a happier mood and provide a positive pathway through life’s daily frustrations.” ~ Chuck Norris


Earlier this year I ran a Spiritual Awakening Retreat. It was a fabulous week – soulful, reflective, enlightening and practical. One of the activities we shared was learning to make our own meditation malas and then using them daily. All of our malas were supercharged in a massive crystal grid that anchored the energy in the centre of our work room.

We made two extra malas with the express intent of giving them away to members of our community.

Here is the first one, made with white sandalwood beads from a mala sourced from the Quan Yin Temple in Vietnam. It has a nurturing energy and is perfect for someone who is feeling emotionally exhausted, stressed and unsupported.

When you receive this mala you’ll also receive instructions about how to use it as part of a simple and restorative daily meditation practice.

To win, all you need to do is make sure you’re subscribed to our blog and then add your name to the comments below. (There’s a box on the home page where you can enter your details.)

If you share our post via Twitter, Instagram or Facebook with the hashtags #winourmala and #cauldronsandcupcakes you’ll receive an extra entry for every post.

And how will this mala make you like Chuck Norris? Chuck Norris meditates every day. Because of meditation he is calm, flexible and mindful enough to do this…

So cool.

Competition closes at 6pm Australian time on Thursday June 28 and winner will be announced here on the blog on June 29.

Good luck! Much love, Nicole ❤ xx

June Workshops and Pop Up Shop:
If you’re looking for some extra support for your spiritual journey come check out my upcoming Pop Up Shop, Channelling Night and One Day Workshops in Brisbane 29 June to July.

On Friday June 29 I’ll have a Pop Up Shop full of wonderful things, and I’ll be doing live demonstrations on how to use singing bowls, crystals and simple energy work techniques. Then on Friday night we have a shared supper and I’ll be doing a Channelling Evening with me and my guides, discussing information and techniques to help you further your own spiritual connection and personal wellbeing.

On Saturday June 30 I’ll be teaching Foundation Spiritual Practices (the things I used to develop my own psychic and intuitive skills, self-awareness and compassion), and on Sunday July 1 I’ll teach Meditation and Mala Making (this second workshop is brilliant if you are feeling stressed and overwhelmed, stuck or suffering from anxiety or depression).

If you are hoping to qualify for my next Accelerated Channelling Retreat and Intensive Mentoring Program (This year’s course sold out in one day!) then attending either of these workshops will help you to get ready for that.

No matter what level you’re at I’ll have something for you on my Brisbane program. More details here!

I look forward to seeing you there!
