Want to bring your kids? I welcome them as long as they are old enough to participate in the meditations and activities and are interested in the kind of content we’ll be sharing. As their parent you’ll know if this event is right for your child. This is not an evening suited to little children.

Manifesting a Positive 2013 – An Invitation to Join Me

new-year-2013-fireworks-desktop-wallpapers1

“New Year’s eve is like every other night; there is no pause in the march of the universe, no breathless moment of silence among created things that the passage of another twelve months may be noted; and yet no man has quite the same thoughts this evening that come with the coming of darkness on other nights.”  ~ Hamilton Wright Mabie

New Year’s Eve. For so many people it’s a night of revelry and celebration, for some it’s a night of sheer underwhelm or expectations not met, and for others it’s just another night…

Australia is one of the first countries to see in the New Year. And Byron Bay does know how to throw a party!  But tonight you won’t find me there. I’ll be home at my farm, enjoying a quiet dinner with friends, before I sit down in meditation to welcome in the energies of 2013.

It will be a big meditation session – two or three hours, finishing with a simple fire ritual. I’ll be focussed on holding a positive intent for myself, for you, and for the world for the unfolding of this important year – 2013.

Small_bonfire

 

I’d love for you to join with me, adding your energy and presence to my own. I promise it will be an easy thing for you to do.

Each year I offer up a wish for myself, and a wish for the world.  I write each of them on separate pieces of paper, and the messages I write then hold some of the shape of my meditation.  At the end of my meditation, I burn each wish, letting the energy of my hopes and prayers be carried up into the atmosphere in the heat and smoke of the fire.

It’s always been a powerful practice. And now you can be a part of it too.  Simply add your wish for yourself and your wish for the world as a comment at the bottom of this post.

Do it just like this: My wish for myself is……  My wish for the world is…..

If you’d like more privacy you can send me a message on facebook, or email me at cauldronsandcupcakes@gmail.com

I’ll print out your wishes, and add them to my own. The only person who will see them is me. (And the Universe, of course…)  I’ll hold that space for you in my meditations, and I’ll burn your messages in my New Year’s Eve fire.

I promise to hold the energy of this space (and my fire) for a full 24 hours from my own walk into 2013. That way none of you will miss out.

Together, our collective good thoughts, wishes and intentions shall help shape a 2013 that begins in love, well wishes and positive energy.  What can be better than that?

Love and Blessings to you, ♥ Nicole xx

Protecting a Good Idea

Delicate flower by Tyeise – innographx.com

We’ve all had them. Ideas that are special to us. Ideas that seem like they could turn into something good given enough time. It might be an idea about creating something or becoming something – but we sense that this idea is special, and has the power to be transformational for us.

A good idea is like a tiny seedling.  It is still young and delicate. It can be easily harmed, squashed, or damaged beyond repair.

Our job is to protect that idea until it has enough strength to stand alone.

So what are we protecting our idea from?

Image from typeanimals.blogspot.com.au

Elephants.

Well, that’s what I call them, anyway.

Ideas grow in a place in your mind that is much like a little garden. Your job is to keep the elephants out, because no matter whether it’s a well-meaning and friendly elephant, or an angry, rampaging, or just plain mean elephant , elephants have the capacity to stomp on your good ideas and cause irreparable damage.

Elephant foot ~ by Hoof_Lovers at flickr.com

An elephant might be a family member who says to you, “Honey, don’t be ridiculous, you’re not artistic. Didn’t we decided you were going to be a dentist? Stop being so dramatic and go finish your studies!” You deflate.  The idea is crushed beyond salvation. You cry a little when no-one is watching and then go dutifully study teeth and gums.

They might be a friend, who laughs or rolls their eyes when you share your idea with them. “That’s the stupidest thing I ever heard!” they might say as tears of laughter run down their face. You look at your idea after they’ve gone and it’s wilted and sad. Suddenly it seems hopeless to even try and revive it.

Or it might be a teacher, a room-mate, someone who you trust, a competitor, or even someone who in loving you and trying to support you still tramples on your dream. “Oh, that’s so interesting, but wouldn’t it be better if you…” Suddenly your good idea doesn’t look anything like the way it did when you started, and it just doesn’t make you feel the same way about it any more.

Worse still, they might steal it, and put it in their own garden! One day you come back to work on your idea only to find that someone else beat you to it and it’s thriving over there – and will never be yours again.

Image from pixabay.com

When an idea is tender and young you need to put a protective fence around it. Maybe you’ll need to keep it in a diary or a safe place. Maybe you’ll need to keep nurturing it in your mind. But respect this idea, cherish it, and help it to grow. Don’t invite elephants into your garden. Don’t even let them catch a glimpse.

If you love and nurture your idea it will grow. You may even find some people who can help you tend that idea, so that it strengthens and blossoms. As you get excited about it and clear about it, you’ll attract what you need to get your idea to thrive.

One day it will be strong enough and big enough that even an elephant can’t squash it. And then it will have the power to transform your life, and maybe even the lives of others.

Believe in your dreams. You are given them for a reason. Honour them, cherish them and trust that they have the capacity to grow into something beyond your most wondrous imagining. ♥ xx

Manifesting Your Best Self – A Journal Adventure

Image from journeysforthesoul.ca

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? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. – Marianne Williamson

If thoughts, words and intent are the building blocks from which reality is shaped, can there be any better manifestation adventure for you than to create your best self?

Why settle for boring, or mediocre? Why limit yourself? Why be unhappy, toiling away in drudgery while your dreams sit in a box on a dusty shelf? This life is no dress rehearsal – there is no second chance to get this right. Commit today to making your life the best that it can be.

Journal Activity:

Begin by writing the following passage into your own journal.

Pour your heart into it. Let the Universe hear your plea, and feel your desire. Decorate your words, use coloured inks or stickers to help convey the dreams and emotions within you.

Then choose one or more of the journal starters below and begin writing. You can use the same journal starter more than once if it really resonates for you.

Dear Universe, 

Even before I was born I was excited about this life.  I was so busy choosing my talents and gifts, packing my bags, getting ready for the adventure. I couldn’t wait to get here! Everything began to line up for me, and suddenly, here I was, in this body, ready to begin…

There is so much I want to do with my life, I have so much to share, and I can feel that energy building up inside me again.  I can feel things lining up to support me in living my best life, and sharing my gifts with the world.

I’m a little nervous, and a little scared, and what I need now more than anything is some help to shine. But I know your job is to help, and my job is to accept that help, so we’re going to get along just fine. I’m ready – let’s do it!!!

Choose from any of these journal starters and begin manifesting your new life:

  • If I could have any wish right now it would be
  • The three things that would make the biggest difference in my life are
  • What would be most helpful to me is
  • The thing that excites me most about the future is
  • If I wasn’t so scared of failure I would truly embrace
  • If I had time, money and freedom, I would
  • The things that make me special are
  • The things I would most love to share with the world are
  • The legacy I’d like to leave behind is
  • The one thing I would change about myself is
  • The one thing in me that I’d like to polish and polish until it shines brightly is
  • If it were possible I would
  • I know it sounds outrageous but
  • The seven things I would like to see more of in my life are
  • If I could win any prize right now it would be
  • My ideal life would look like this –
  • My ideal body, style and habitat are
  • My version of a deluxe life is
  • The most magical thing I could draw to me right now is
  • The thing that is beginning to change my life is
  • It won’t be long until
  • I wasn’t ready before, but now I find I’m eager to

Soundtrack to My Life:

Music has the power to transform our emotions, and when we transform our emotions we transform our lives. This week you’re going to make a mixtape. If you’ve never made one, there’s a very simple how-to guide here on this video – they intend the playlist for someone else, but the special person who will be the recipient of this great music you’re choosing is YOU:

Choose songs that mean something to you, that evoke a mood, that stir emotions within you and make you feel positive, excited, inspired and uplifted. Listen to your mixtape often! The more you feel inspired and uplifted, the more you will begin to grow, evolve, become.  We need your unique gifts, talents and perspective in our world. Your heart always knows what it wants, and if you listen, it will always guide you well.

Shine! Be your best self – there is no-one better qualified.

Now make a wish – and know that the Universe will do its part to make it come true…

Much love to you ♥ xx

Manifesting New Directions and Opportunities

Image from relativityonline.com

If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with success unexpected in common hours.
Henry David Thoreau

It still amazes me how writing and visualising can create a magnetic pull in your life that attracts relationships, synchronicities and opportunities to you that are a match to your talents and intent. Writing has great power, and today’s exercise uses journal writing and visualisation as tools to help you open doors, invite opportunity and attract helpful people.

Expect answers and solutions. They often come from left field, and they often manifest themselves very quickly.  The more happy, positive and in flow you feel, the faster your solutions and opportunities will arrive. (If you’re not sure what makes you feel good, or how to get into that happy place, there is a great journal exercise and suggestions here.)

Journal Activity

Begin by writing the following passage into your own journal.  Feel free to use coloured inks if you wish, or anything else that brightens up your page.  Then choose one or more of the journal starters below and just start writing.  Let the words flow from your heart.  Don’t over-think anything, and most importantly don’t censor anything or limit yourself.  You can use the same journal starter more than once if it really resonates for you.

Use the page to create, imagine, and daydream your best self.  Feel yourself expanding out from the current limits of your life, dipping your toes in that glorious ocean of possibility.

Dear Universe, 

I believe there is more in store in life for me that what is in front of me right now. I have so many gifts to share, and I just need a little help to shine more brightly. I would appreciate some helpful people, some new opportunities, some great teachers and any other synchronicities or miracles you can throw my way.  I know some of these can be quickly sorted, and some may take more time. I am open to however this works.

I am excited about my future.  I await it with open arms.  I say YES to possibilities, and I am READY TO MOVE FORWARD in ways that bring me happiness and that best use my talents and gifts:

Choose from any of these journal starters and begin manifesting your new life:

    With a little bit of support I could

  • I have a great project in mind, but I’m a bit stuck about how to go forward.  What I really need is
  • One of the things holding me back right now is ____________ . If I could just get some help with this I could

Daydreaming your way to a new life

When you have ten minutes all to yourself where you won’t be disturbed, go sit in a comfy chair, lie down on the bed, or spend some time in nature.  Take your journal with you! Open up this exercise and read one of your answers.  Use that as a starting point, close your eyes or gaze off into the distance and just daydream yourself in that ideal life.  See yourself having a great time, being successful and happy, getting the thing done, achieving the goal, getting the promotion, having the life or the lifestyle, winning the award, getting married, having that dream trip, riding off into the sunset… See that teacher coming into your life, or your soul mate. Really feel how wonderful that will be, to love and to use your gifts and to live your purpose.  An amazing and satisfying and fulfilling life.

Know that daydreaming and visualisation is a proven manifestation tool.  Indulge often!

Writing Yourself into Abundance

Gold Egg by scottchan - freedigitalphotos.net

Money frees you from doing things you dislike. Since I dislike doing nearly everything, money is handy. – Groucho Marx

Writing is a powerful way to get unblocked and back into flow, and one of the areas we often seem to be out of flow is around the area of Abundance.

Abundance can be many things to many people, but there is always one common component to everyone’s idea of an abundant life – an absence of lack.

So how do we write ourselves into Abundance? The first thing we need to do is edge ourselves out of limited thinking. You know what I mean – limited thinking is that space where we say to ourselves:

‘I can’t because I don’t have enough time, money, education, emotional support, skill, connection, opportunity, love, health, peace, stability, direction, Byron Bay Organic Donuts (trust me when I say if you’ve eaten one you know what I’m talking about) or whatever is your usual self-talk…’

Now what I’m going to suggest today may sound a little materialistic to start off with, but bear with me. This is a great process, and once you get into it it becomes fun, and opens you up to so many possibilities and new ideas, as well as the resurrection of old ideas that are lurking, starved and lonely, in the dark dusty corners of your mind.

This week we’re going to spend money!

Money by Salvatore Vuono - freedigitalphotos.net

Well, write about it as if we have that cash in our hands and can spend it on whatever we like…

Journal Activity

Your task this week (and into the following months if you enjoy this exercise) is to start at the smallest amount of money, and spend the lot.  You can spend more than one amount of money at a time, but you must spend in order: ie Cash Sum 1, Cash Sum 2, etc. You cannot move onto the next sum of money until you have completely spent the one before.

Simply write HOW you will spend the money, being as specific as you can. Feel free to get brochures or cost things out on the internet. Let your imagination go to town, and allow yourself to become emotionally involved in spending this cash!

This activity helps clear out our anxiety, fear and worry around money, and assists us to get to what we really want from life and for ourselves. Enter this activity with a spirit of adventure and curiosity.

Image from stevemitchelldesign.com

It doesn’t matter how you spend this cash – it only matters that you spend it. Once you have spent the money, for the purposes of this activity consider that task done.  For example if you borrowed twenty dollars and you use your first Cash Sum to pay that back, tomorrow you don’t have to worry about repaying that debt – it’s done – so move on to the next thing. (of course, in real life you will still need to pay that twenty back…)

Cash Sums to be spent energetically

  1. $20
  2. $100
  3. $500
  4. $1000
  5. $2500
  6. $5000
  7. $10 000
  8. $25 000
  9. $50 000
  10. $75 000
  11. $100 000
  12. $200 000
  13. $500 000
  14. $750 000
  15. $1 000 000
  16. $5 000 000

Pay attention to how your feelings change as you go from the smaller sums to the larger sums. Write in as much detail as possible. Really let yourself play and have fun with this. Allow yourself to get excited. Know that what you are doing is actually the Law of Attraction in action as you inform the Universe of your intentions and desires.

Get a little creative…

You may also like to add images to your journal or create a dream board (here’s how to do that here) to inspire you or to anchor a particular image, activity, emotional state or object.

Writing your Dream Home into Existence

A man’s home is his castle ~ Proverb

Everyone has a dream home in their mind – somewhere that will fulfill their needs, bring peace to their soul, and speak to the person they are or would like to be. I’m lucky enough to have found mine, but then again, luck didn’t create it – intention manifested it for me.

Shortly after we moved to our farm I was unpacking a box of my old journals and opened one at random. To my delight here was a description of my farm, almost perfect in its accuracy and detail, written by me six years before we purchased our new home.  It was titled My Farm, The Magical House on the Hill which is exactly how this little cottage feels to me. I remember how I felt the day I wrote that piece. I was relaxed, happy, hopeful and as I wrote, more and more excited. And I felt a great contentment when I was done.

Writing has great power, and today we are going to use that power of clear thought and intent to write a recipe for you that can help your dream home to manifest in your life.

Journal Activity

Find somewhere to write where you won’t be disturbed for at least ten minutes. Take a minute or two and breathe deeply, bringing yourself to a place of calm. Begin to allow yourself to feel a little excited.

When you are ready start writing. Write about your dream home and describe it in as much detail as you can.  It doesn’t matter how much it will cost or where it will be, and you don’t have to work out HOW you are going to end up living there.  All you have to do is describe it.

Remember to include the things that are important to you, and don’t write it to impress yourself or others, write it from your heart.  You are making a recipe that the Universe will follow in order to bring this dream home to you. Make sure to include the following points:

  • What is the climate like?
  • Are there any special features inside the house?
  • Is there a space where you can carry out an activity that means a lot to you?
  • Does it need to have certain conditions such as stairs, no stairs, an easy driveway, plenty of water, room for a garden, no garden at all, access to services? (one of my things was that my property would be private and feel like it was a million miles from anywhere but with good coffee and great neighbours just up the road!)
  • Are there any special features outside the house?
  • What’s the neighbourhood like?
  • What makes your heart sing about this place?
  • How does it meet the needs of your family, animals, or the family and pets you plan to have in the future?
  • Who’s living there with you?
  • What are you doing?
  • What’s your employment or financial situation?

This short video will get you in the right space to help your ideas to flow. Somewhere, right now, your dream home exists, and it’s waiting for you, ready to support your dream life. Believe!

Dream Board/ Vision Board
A Dream Board or Vision Board is a visual representation for your dream home.  If you don’t even know what your dream home might be, go get a whole pile of magazines.  (You can often get them from newsagents for free with the covers ripped off if you let them know you are using them for an art project.)
Without thinking about it too much, flick through the magazines and pull out the pictures that appeal to you. If words ‘jump out’ at you and make you feel good, cut those out too!
I had a client once who thought she wanted to live on a farm, but she’d never been able to manifest one.  When she did this activity every picture she pulled out was of a waterfront apartment surrounded by boats and restaurants and high end shops.  Guess where she lives now?
When you’re done cut your pictures out and glue them to a large sheet of cardboard, or peg them to a corkboard and place it somewhere where you can see it.
If you haven’t written your journal entry yet, use your dream board to inspire you!
Here’s a great short video to help guide you if you’ve never made a Dream Board before:
Happy manifesting!  ♥

Writing as a Manifestation Tool

Image from collegelifestyles.com

In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God and the word was God. ~ John 1:1

Words have power. Whether they are thought, spoken or written down, there is a great energy to words, and over the next six Mondays we are going to focus on ways to harness this power through journal writing, so that we can bring the energy of positive change into our lives.

No matter if you believe in God, Universal Energy, the power of the mind, synchronicity, the Muse, yourself or humanity – I’m going to show you how to work with those beliefs, and with words, to create transformation. You’ll gain clarity, and begin attracting the help, guidance and information you need to move closer to your own idea of a better life.

The Law of Attraction

There has been so much talk about the Law of Attraction, but many people struggle to understand what it is, how it works, or if it’s even real.

Here’s my simple take on it. The Universe is one of vibration, where like attracts like, where a thought attracts its match. It works like this: the clearer the thought, and the more powerful the emotion attached to that thought (positive or negative), the faster you attract that thing/situation/person into your life. I know that it is real because I have experienced it for myself, and you’ll discover that it is too if you keep working with me over the next few weeks.

So these activities focus on writing as a manifestation tool, but you’ll find they will also start strengthening your intuitive abilities and sensitivities.  It’s a natural result of becoming more aware of the energies in the world around you.

Journal Activity:

Begin by watching this two  minute clip to help to put you into a more positive vibration (which is a great starting point for manifestation):

Now, over the next week use the following journal starters and write as much or as little as feels right for you.  Begin by transcribing these words (the ones in coloured ink) into your journal. Then choose a journal starter that resonates for you and let the words flow.  You can use the same journal starter more than once if it really resonates for you.  Write from the heart, and be focused on SOLUTIONS rather than problems.  You don’t need to know the answer, you just need to know that you want one!

We need to get that jumble in your head out and onto the page.  The real work has already begun, even if it feels messy.  In fact that’s how it is supposed to feel.  Pour it all out onto the page, and enjoy the relief once it’s out there…

Dear Universe, 

There are things in my life that I would appreciate some help or guidance with right now. I know some of these can be quickly sorted, and some may take more time. I am open to however this works.

I don’t know what the answers are, or even how to start, but I am going to trust that there IS an answer, and that with your assistance I CAN find help. I trust that the best possible solution for me exists for the following situations:

  • I would love to find healing in my relationship with
  • I would love to attract into my life a person who could
  • It would be terrific if I didn’t have to __________ because then I could
  • An idea I’ve had in my head for a long time that I’d like to turn into a reality is
  • One thing that I’ve never been able to get sorted is _________ and it would mean so much to me to have some change here because then I could
  • The one thing I really need a teacher for is
  • The one thing I really need a healer for is
  • The one thing I really need a friend for is
  • The one gift I’d very much like to share with others is
  • It’s terrifying, but if I could only
  • I know I’m not good at _______ but it has to get done.  Somewhere out there is some one who is good at ______________ and if I could find them and have them do this with me, or even for me, it would free me up to
  • One belief inside me that is really holding me back is______________.  If I could get some help to overcome this I would be able to
  • If I could find some forgiveness for ___________ then I’d be able to

  • The one thing that would really change my life right now in the simplest of ways is
  • I’d love to have more friends who were also interested in
  • I’m so lost that I have NO CLUE.  What I’d appreciate is some direction so that
This week, look for evidence of help. Stay open, and have an attitude of curiosity. Help might come in the form of a show on TV, a blog post, a book that jumps out at you, a flyer in your letterbox, a suggestion from a friend, or even a sudden knowing…
Much love to you  ♥ ♥ ♥

Wanderlust and the Universal Ordering System

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” – St. Augustine

One of the things I love most about travel is the anticipation before I actually embark. Right now I am dreaming of another adventure.  The more I dream the more it begins to take shape. It’s as if I call it to me…

On Sunday as I am flicking through the travel section of the weekend paper I feel a little pang of interest.  Yes, I think to myself.  A trip!

But where? I have no idea.  Nothing jumps out at me. All I have is that longing for the world falling away behind me as my plane climbs into the clouds, and that lovely displaced feeling of being in unfamiliar lands.

Universe, I say, I would like to order the perfect holiday for me this year…  (It’s a little game I play. I am invariably delighted by the results!) Now I wait, with an excited sense of expectation. I trust that the Universe will show me the perfect destination, and that the message shall be clear.

Monday, the idea has taken hold. I start looking at my diary, wondering when I might be able to steal away for a few weeks. After July I tell myself.  And not in September.

I still have no idea where I’d like to go, but I trust that the Universe is going to take care of that for me. When I put a wish or an order out into the ether I trust that the Universe shall respond.

Later that morning a client shows me a photo of someone she wants to ask about. Where is that, I ask, intrigued.

Istanbul, she says. Oh yes, here’s more pictures from my holiday there. She weaves me a tale, spiced with images of temples and churches, amazing food, crowded markets and history. She offers to send me some information about her trip in case I ever want to go there myself.

Tuesday, I sit with a girlfriend in a tea-house. Talk turns to travel.  Suddenly I am sure.  I spent one hurried day in Turkey a year ago, and was captivated by glimpses from taxi windows of places for which there was no time to explore. The markets. The coffee shops.  The carpet sellers. The smell of street food. The call to prayer. Yes. Istanbul.

Wednesday, I am shopping.  I slip into a travel agency. I’m thinking of taking a trip, I say.

Have you ever been to Turkey?  I spent a month there last year, replies the girl behind the counter, unprompted. Istanbul’s fantastic! They’ve just released some great specials.  Can I get you some information?

Of course. (Did you know my affirmation? Everything I want is always on special.)

I return home with an armful of guides and brochures, and strew them out on the floor.

So now I sit, piecing together a trip. It’s a delicious pastime. I trust that there will be enough money for my needs.  I trust I will be in good health. I trust that it will all come together – the flights and accommodation, the expeditions and wonderful discoveries, the people I shall meet. I open myself up to the possibility, and little by little my crazy dream becomes reality.

Sending out orders for the Universe to fill is such fun.  You should try it some time. Meanwhile, I promise to send you a postcard!
