“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

Strengthening our Essence

“Living is about capturing the essence of things. I go through my life every day with a vial, a vial wherein can be found precious essential oils of every kind! The priceless, fragrant oils that are the essence of my experiences, my thoughts. I walk inside a different realm from everybody else, in that I am existing in the essence of things; every time there is reason to smile, I hold out my glass vial and capture that drop of oil, that essence, and then I smile. And that is why I have smiled, and so you and I may be smiling at the same time but I am smiling because of that one drop of cherished, treasured oil that I have extracted. When I write, I find no need to memorize an idea, a plot, a sequence of things: no. I must only capture the essence of a feeling or a thought and once I have inhaled that aroma, I know that I have what I need.”

On Retreat today Sokli and I are teaching the class how to make essences. We’ll start by tuning in to our own, working in meditation with our chakras and our soul awareness. Then we’ll begin learn how to tune in to the essence in others.

An essence is the core qualities of a thing: be that plant, rock, bird, person, place, experience…

We’ll work to take the essence of a tree or a plant and put it into a bottle. Then we’ll be able to take those drops as medicine to help give us a little of the qualities and energy of that tree or plant.

We’ll also make oils that are infused with the essence of crystals and helpful herbs – things that we can rub onto our skin or breathe in or diffuse.

It’s a day of quiet alchemy and craftiness, of meditation and time in nature, and of sisterhood as we sit together making our potions and lotions.

I wonder, is this the kind of thing you’d like to learn? It is certainly something we could turn into an online course, and even into a workshop or a weekend retreat. If there’s enough interest Dana and I will put something together for next year.

Meanwhile I promise to post some pictures tomorrow so that you can see what we’ve been up to.

Thinking of you all and sending so much love,

Nicole  xx
