A Week Of Highs, Lows & Breakthroughs – Monday Oracle 18 June 2018

“Balance. It was all about balance. That had been one of the first things that she had learned: the centre of the seesaw has neither up nor down, but upness and downness flow through it while it remains unmoved. You had to be the centre of the seesaw so the pain flowed through you, not into you. It was very hard. But she could do it!
~  Terry Pratchett

 

Hello, Lovelies!

June is a quieter month energetically – one that invites us to spend time with loved ones, time on ourselves and our wellbeing, and time resting, recharging and doing what we love. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card Two of Crystals brings us this week.

At the beginning of this week expect some fluctuations in your mood and energy. One moment you’ll be flying high and the next you’ll feel like you need to withdraw from the world. Or you’ll be full of energy and then exhausted. Totally in love with your idea and then decide it sucks. Just flow with it, don’t fight it, and know that by later this week things will begin to settle down again.

The end of this week will see you potentially catapulted into a new phase in your life, and the key to success for you and any ventures you undertake will be co-operation.

One of the most beneficial energies that the Two of Crystals brings is the kind of helpful people and advice that propel you to achieve success in your chosen field or in solving your current dilemma. Be open to help and advice, and be prepared to consider things that might be new ideas or different to what you had planned. Get your team together. Trust that so much more can be done through co-operation and community.

The other thing Two of Crystals supports this week is anything to do with reclaiming health, fitness and overall wellness in your life. Make sure you’re getting balance between busy and quiet, between work and play, between moving your body and sitting in front of a computer or behind a desk.

It’s a week that can end in great progress forward, but remember to look after yourself, to ask for help, and to maintain balance and sustainability.

Supportive crystals this week?

Smoky Quartz opens you to new possibilities and ideas and amplifies your inner voice. Labradorite encourages self-care, supports empathy and intuition, and is a gentle and reassuring stone for developing psychic ability. Bloodstone will gift you energy, vitality and an understanding of how hard to push yourself and when to take a break.  Red Jasper (pictured) is a stone for mental, physical and emotional rejuvenation. Deeply grounding, it helps you connect to your heart and your truth and encourages a sense of safety.  

Helpful essential oils?

I’m loving Sacred Frankincense or Sandalwood for balance and nurture this week. Sacred Frankincense has a rich, earthy aroma and is calming and supportive – opening you to deeper trust and spiritual connection.  Sandalwood with its distinctive woodsy sweet fragrance is the perfect oil to bring you back to a state of clarity, calm and positivity.

Apply either oil to your pulse points at wrist, neck and over heart like a perfume. Place a few drops in your bath water. Diffuse it in your home or office. Put a drop in the palm of your hand, rub hands together and then inhale the aroma. (Here’s a simple three-minute meditation you can do using any of your favourite essential oils – click here) 

 You can find the oils here.

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 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). No matter what level you’re at I’ll have something for you on my program. 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, Two of Crystals’, is from the Inner Child Cards – A Fairy-Tale Tarot. I use any cards shown as a prompt for channelled messages and my own own intuitive wisdom, so my take is sometimes quite different to the meaning found in a book. 

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

Why I Love Using Mala Beads In Meditation

“if 
the ocean 
can calm itself, 
so can you.
we 
are both 
salt water 
mixed with 
air.” 
Nayyirah Waheed

Meditation – it’s something most people know is good for us, but it’s also something that remains outside the grasp of many.

I meditate every day, twice a day, and I use a variety of techniques, but one of my favourite is to use a mala.

A mala is a string of 108 beads. They are sometimes known as prayer beads, buddha beads or rosary beads.  Maybe you wear one as jewellery – they’ve become very popular lately, and it seems that every second person has one wrapped around their wrist or hung about their neck.

When I am tired, stressed or overthinking using a mala in meditation gives my fingers something to do and occupies that busy part of my brain so that I can gently come back to a place of calm and peace. I hold each bead in my fingers one by one, and slowly travel each of the 108 beads. I might use my breath, a prayer, a mantra, a visualisation, or something more shamanic. And it transforms me. It soothes me. It heals and reconnects me.

I can’t recommend using a mala highly enough, especially if you are the type of person who usually struggles with meditation, or who has never been able to do it in a way that has been helpful for you.

I have used Mala beads in meditation now for nearly forty years. Still they teach me. Still they open new places inside me, and in my awareness and knowledge.

Even holding or wearing my Mala brings me peace.

If I am preparing to mentor students or run a retreat I will create a meditation mala specifically for my group, with each bead representing a student. I chose a different style of bead for each person, one that will be immediately recognisable to my touch. When my fingers find that bead in meditation I can tune in to my student, assess how they are going, and send them healing, energy and direction. When the course is complete I will pull the mala apart and send my students their personal bead for them to wear or as a talisman and keepsake.

My mala beads

Soon I will teach my next workshop, showing each student how to craft their own Mala. Showing their own fingers how to seek out and hold each bead. Showing them how to connect with and use their Mala for prayer, for healing, for meditation, for manifestation, for connection to self and soul and all that is.

The idea of that sharing filled my weary heart this morning, bringing me comfort and inner expansion. I finished my meditation with a deep calm and a renewed energy.

Praying the Mala is one of the most restorative practices I know, and I’m so grateful to have this in my toolkit.

If you’d like to learn how to make your own mala beads and how to use them in meditation you’re welcome to join me on Sunday, July 1 in Brisbane for my one-day Meditation and Mala Beads workshop.

I have blessed wooden and rudraksha malas, as well as an extensive range of crystal beads, pearls, ceramic beads and tassels for us to use in the workshop. You’ll be able to combine these to craft something that is deeply meaningful to you, and that will be supportive of your journey while reflecting your personal taste and energy. I’ll show you how to use them in a range of ways, and you’ll soon be able to find your own path to peace and mindfulness.

End of the Month Events

When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul and brings joy, care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life.”
~ Jean Shinoda Bolen

Do you want to learn how to create a spiritual practice in your life or how to deepen an existing one?

Would you love to come to one of my retreats but can’t find the time, the finances or maybe you just don’t feel ready yet but you’d love to prepare so you can join us in the future?

In just a few weeks my team and I will be setting up shop in Brisbane for three days of workshops, channelling and a host of gorgeous spiritual tools.

Our events will be held from  Friday June 29 to Sunday July 1 at St Colomb’s Church Hall,  23 Victoria St, Clayfield. That’s in Brisbane, QLD, Australia.

They will share information about a range of topics, as well as answering questions from the audience. I rarely conduct channelling sessions outside my retreats, so this is a very special offering. I’ll be channelling my guides and some fairy friends who’ll be discussing:

  • How to use silence and nature to heal yourself emotionally and physically
  • How to use meditation to increase your emotional resilience and physical immunity
  • How to work with crystals in meditation, for manifestation and for healing and the science behind how crystals interact with us (Some really cool new information here!)

These nights are always entertaining, educational and often very enlightening. Please bring a plate to share for supper. Tea and coffee will be provided.

  • How to use journalling as part of your regular spiritual practice – done properly, journalling can open doors in your life you’d never thought possible! I’ll show you how to frame your questions, how to spiritually connect and how to go deeper to create a sacred journey of self-enlightenment.
  • How to easily connect with your Guides and Higher Self in meditation, and how to access these energies for direction and guidance.
  • How to give yourself and others energetic healing to revitalise the body, clear blockages and promote physical, emotional and spiritual healing.

Revised Date Savers For Brisbane Pop Up Shop and Workshops!

“Your inner strength is your outer foundation” 
Allan Rufus

Lovelies, please amend your calendars! Due to that horrendous bout of flu which I am only just recovering from, we’ve postponed the Brisbane events until June.

Although I was sad to postpone there is a wonderful upside. My crystal suppliers are bringing me some great new specimens in time for the June dates. I’ll have more rare stones from Tibet and parts of China, some incredible stones from Afghanistan, lots of amazing Australian crystals and a few very special finds including Amber, skeletal Smoky Quartz and some Golden Healer Cactus Quartz clusters. I can’t wait to share them with you! (Ben has his fingers crossed that I won’t keep TOO many of them for myself.) from

All events will be now held from Friday June 29 to Sunday July 1 at St Colomb’s Church Hall,  23 Victoria St, Clayfield. That’s in Brisbane, QLD, Australia.

Revitalization Week Ahead! Monday Oracle 9 April 2018

Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the single candle will not be shortened.” 
~ “The Teaching of Buddha.” 

 

Hello, Lovelies!

April is a month that brings a delicious flow of new ideas and inspiration. Your job is to honour this flow, making room for change in your life and for acting on these ideas and inspired thoughts. If you’ve lacked direction you’ll be glad to know that April gifts you sudden flashes of insight and clarity. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of inspiration which the oracle card Eight of Wands brings us.

This week brings revitalisation of our creative essence. In fact, it brings revitalisation of our very life force.

Let your intuition guide you this week. Pay attention to the rhythms of your body. For some of you this means surrendering to deep rest. Grab an early night or two, dial down your commitments, do less. I know – you might need to fight the familiar panic that comes up when you have so much to do and now I’m asking you to slow down or even stop! But who makes good decisions or creates their best work when they are as sharp as a beachball? A few days of unplugging and good rest will have you back on your game again, refreshed and so much more alive with ideas and possibilities than you are right now.

For some of you this is the week to bunker down with that project or idea you’ve been dancing around. The ideas will flow. You’ll find yourself incredibly productive. Don’t worry about being balanced this week – give yourself to the creative whirlwind and go your hardest.

How do you tell which situation best suits you? Close your eyes, take a deep breath and relax your body. Now tune in. Are you teetering on the edge of exhaustion or is there plenty of juice left in your tank? Go by your true energy level. If you’re fatigued rest up first – you’ll still be able to finish the week strong.

This is also a week for finding teachers, mentors and sources of inspiration, and for being that creative light for others too. Inspire and let yourself be inspired.

Then get back to me and tell me what happened for you this week. I just know some of you are going to have enormous productivity, breakthroughs and important realisations!

Supportive crystals this week?

Clear Quartz amplifies intuition and your ability to tune in to Universal and Personal Wisdom. It’s a great stone to enable you to understand at a soul level what your body really needs. Amazonite helps you to live bravely, defending and protecting what is important to you, especially in regard to your creative projects. Red Jasper will keep you grounded as the ideas flow, and gift you stamina and resilience if you end up burning the candle at both ends. Fluorite (pictured below) taps you into your innate creativity, fires up your inspiration and helps you to be honest, objective and innovative with your work.  

Helpful essential oils?

Hands down it’s Geranium this week. Geranium is such an underestimated essential oil. With its sweet floral scent it’s brilliant for helping you relax, unwind and get connected to your essence. It will uplift you and stimulate creativity, sensuality and emotional flow – all energies that are great for shifting us into a more creative space. If you’re an over-giver and your tank is dry, geranium oil will fill you back up again.

Apply it to your pulse points at wrist, neck and over heart like a perfume. Place a few drops in your bath water. Diffuse it. One of my favourite uses is as a centering and inspiring pick-me-up. Put a drop in the palm of your hand, rub hands together and then inhale the aroma. (Here’s a simple three-minute meditation you can do using geranium or any of your favourite essential oils – click here)

Need an extra boost of encouragement? Try Young Living’s Believe essential oil blend. It’s fabulous in your diffuser while you work, or as a quick pick-me-up with a three-minute meditation. Believe is uplifting and promotes confidence, spiritual connection, clarity and belief in ourselves. It also helps us to let go of fear, doubt and old emotional pain and hurt.  I often use this oil when I am creating, writing or journalling, or working with cards for myself. 

 You can find the oils here.

 

If you’re looking for some extra support for your spiritual and creative flow come check out my upcoming Pop Up Shop, Channelling Night and One Day Workshops in Brisbane 26-27 May. We’d love to see you there! Details here in my Store.

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, ‘Eight of Wands’, is from the Inner Child Cards – A Fairy-Tale Tarot. I use any cards shown as a prompt for channelled messages and my own own intuitive wisdom, so my take is sometimes quite different to the meaning found in a book. 

Date Savers For May Pop Up Shop and Workshops!

“Your inner strength is your outer foundation” 
Allan Rufus

We’re thrilled to announce our next Brisbane Pop Up Shop and One Day workshops!

All events will be held between Friday May 25 and Sunday May 27 at St Colomb’s Church Hall,  23 Victoria St, Clayfield. That’s in Brisbane, QLD, Australia.

Friday May 25 is our Pop Up Shop Opening and Channelling and Guided Meditation Evening. Come browse our gorgeous range of crystals, singing bowls, prayer shawls, tarot and oracle cards, journals and other tools for self-exploration and spiritual development.

There will be free demonstrations on using the singing bowls to clear spaces and your own energies, and Nicole and her team will be on hand to help with your crystal and card selections.

Friday Event: Join us for a shared supper and our Channelling Evening and Guided Meditation sessions on Friday night 6pm to 9pm. Come along and meet some of my guides (including some fairy friends!). They will share information about a range of topics, as well as answering questions from the audience. I rarely conduct channelling sessions outside my retreats, so this is a very special offering. I’ll be channelling my guides and some fairy friends who’ll be discussing:

  • How to use silence and nature to heal yourself emotionally and physically
  • How to use meditation to increase your emotional resilience and physical immunity
  • How to work with crystals in meditation, for manifestation and for healing and the science behind how crystals interact with us (Some really cool new information here!)
  • Using movement and music to energise you, release energetic and emotional blockages and help manage anxiety and depression.

These nights are always entertaining, educational and often very enlightening. Please bring a plate to share for supper. Tea and coffee will be provided.

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.

Cost: $35 adults, $15 children under 17 – Please RSVP to Dana at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com 

Saturday Workshop 

Saturday 26 May – Full Day Workshop 10am to 4.30pm

Foundation Spiritual Practices – This one day workshop will help you wake up your natural psychic and intuitive abilities by developing a strong practice of regular habits to incorporate into your daily life. Whether you are a complete beginner or have been working with your spiritual gifts for years you’ll find tools and techniques here to help accelerate your growth. More importantly, these practices will help you to reclaim your mindfulness, sense of self, inner calm, good decision-making, peace within, and a strong connection to guiding energies.

These are the techniques I used to build my own intuitive and psychic abilities. They are tried and tested with over 35 years of my own personal practice. If you’re busy, stressed, anxious, time-poor and longing for a way back to that safe and tranquil space of connection and communion, or if you’ve gotten out of the habit of regular spiritual practice this is the workshop for you!

We will be learning:

  • What a spiritual Journeymaker is and why it’s time for you to make that journey!
  • How to use tarot and oracle cards to find your own answers and to go deeply into a space that gives you purpose, direction and perspective. (Even if you have NEVER done this before I will have you working confidently within a short space of time!)
  • How to use crystals for deep soul work.
  • How to use journalling as part of your regular spiritual practice – done properly, journalling can open doors in your life you’d never thought possible! I’ll show you how to frame your questions, how to spiritually connect and how to go deeper to create a sacred journey of self-enlightenment.
  • How to easily connect with your Guides and Higher Self in meditation, and how to access these energies for direction and guidance.
  • How to give yourself and others energetic healing to revitalise the body, clear blockages and promote physical, emotional and spiritual healing.
  • Creating a sacred space in your home, and the fundamentals of crystal gridding, space clearing and energy work.
  • Some sacred and powerful breathing and energies techniques taught to me by my Aboriginal Aunties that I have never shared before.
  • Some simple quick spiritual rituals to start and end your day connected, balanced and in a good place.

Morning and afternoon tea, and lunch will be provided.

All participants will receive a crystal grid to construct at home and MP3 recordings of our guided meditations after the event so that you can follow along with them at home until you are confident enough to do them by yourself.

Bookings Essential!

Cost: $330 adults, $220 children under 17

Sunday Workshop 

Sunday 27 May – Full Day Workshop 10am to 4.30pm

Making and Using Meditation Mala Beads – Lots of people are wearing Mala Beads these days, but no-one seems to know how to actually use them!

Come along to this fun and instructive one-day workshop and let me show you how. Today you will learn about Mala Beads, how they work, and how to use them.

You’ll create your own sacred Meditation Mala, with a combination of blessed wooden beads and crystals. You’ll learn the prayers and blessings to activate your Mala and to attune it to your own energies. At the end of the day you’ll have a beautiful wearable spiritual tool, that suits your personality, energy and style.

You’ll also learn how to use your Meditation Mala. I’ll show you:

  • how to meditate to reach that deep quiet space that everyone talks about but so few people get to
  • how to meditate to manage anxiety, stress and depression
  • how to meditate to create manifesting energies that draw positive energy, situations and relationships to your life
  • how to meditate to send energy and healing to others
  • how to meditate to change habits and build positive new ones
  • how to meditate to build your own intuitive connection and connection to Guides, Ancestors, Angels and God (whomever or whatever you perceive that energy to be)
  • how to meditate to clear and activate your chakras

These are the mala meditation techniques I have used to build my own intuitive and psychic abilities, some of which have been shared with me by Tibetan Buddhist Shamans.

By the end of the day you’ll feel connected, grounded, blissy and fabulous!

Morning and afternoon tea, and lunch will be provided.

All participants will take home their own sacred mala beads. You’ll also receive MP3 recordings of our guided meditations after the event so that you can follow along with them at home until you are confident enough to do them by yourself.

Pop Up Shop and Brisbane Events Reminder

 

“Let go of certainty. The opposite isn’t uncertainty. It’s openness, curiosity and a willingness to embrace paradox, rather than choose up sides. The ultimate challenge is to accept ourselves exactly as we are, but never stop trying to learn and grow.” 
~  Tony Schwartz

Right now I can barely move around my little farm house for boxes of crystals and journals and singing bowls and other treasures.

I’m readying them all for our final event of the year – our Christmas Pop Up Shop, channelling evening and workshops. They’ll be held on Friday 15 and Saturday 16 December at St Colomb’s Church Hall,  23 Victoria St, Clayfield. That’s in Brisbane, QLD, Australia.

We’d love to see you there!

Pop Up Shop:

Friday 15 December from 2pm to 6.00pm 

Saturday 16 December from 10am to 4pm. 

Come along and have a cup of tea with us while you view my beautiful range of hand-chosen crystals, singing bowls, oracle and tarot cards, prayer shawls and pashminas, crystal jewellery, incense, journals, jewelry and much more. Our 2018 Year of ME Planner hard copies (I know!) crystals for the year and membership packs will also be available. (PS – ME stands for Manifesting Energies! This is not a planner of self-indulgence, it’s a planner for personal empowerment!)

One of my suppliers has just delivered me the most amazing crystals from Tibet. I’m sitting in meditation with them now to channel their purposes so they’ll all be ready for you. I haven’t been this excited about stones or seen stones of this quality in a very long time. (Most of my stock is decades old, and I have a shed FULL of rocks, as my friends and poor husband who has to lug them all around will testify!)

I’ll be on hand on Friday and at selected times on Saturday to answer all of your questions, and to give advice on the selection and use of crystals. Great gift ideas for Christmas, and I’ll have some very special stones from my personal collection as well!

I’ve also unearthed a wide range of clusters, double terminators and towers – all of which suit the 2018 energies – as well as a great selection of stones to choose from for your 2018 stone.

No need to RSVP for the Pop Up Shop – just turn up and say hi. We’d love to see you.

Tea and coffee will be provided.

Saturday Workshops 

Saturday 16 December – Morning Workshop 10am to 12pm

Vision Board and Manifesting Crystals for 2018 – A Vision Board is a board with images and energy to uplift us in the year ahead, and to remind us of what is important in our lives, and the future we wish to actively manifest for ourselves.

I will take you through a meditation and series of activities to help you become clear about your Power Word for 2018 and the values and actions that will be important to you. I will also choose an oracle card as a personal Guiding Card for each of you, and give you a mini-reading for that card. This card and energies will then be incorporated into your Vision Board.

You’ll make your own Vision Board choosing images and words that speak to you, and then take it home with you at the end of our class together.

I will also choose a crystal for each of you to charge up and program as your 2018 Manifesting Crystal and a 4 stone crystal grid for your home. I’ll take you through each step of the process of how to cleanse, activate and program the stones and how to best use them for the year ahead.

You will make and take home your Vision Board for 2018, a Manifesting Crystal and a small Crystal Grid. All materials and information will be provided. Morning tea will also be served. This workshop is open to adults and children aged 14 and up.

Bookings Essential!

Cost: $110 adults, $85 children – Please RSVP to Dana at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com

Saturday 16 December – Afternoon Workshop 1pm to 4pm

Intuitive Oracle/Tarot Card Reading Class – This workshop will teach you how to choose and prepare a deck of cards to work with as your intuitive soul journey companions. I will also show you how to choose and use a Crystal Keeper for your cards.

You will receive a copy of my new Soul Journey 2018 Card Spread Workbook and a Journal.

Nicole will then teach you a range of techniques for working intuitively to read the cards for yourself and others, and explain the various Spreads that you can use to guide you in the year ahead.

You’ll do a foundation reading for yourself, and learn how to go deeper into this soul work with journalling and meditation.

We will look at the fundamentals of connecting with your Higher Self and guides, simple meditation techniques, using oracle and tarot cards to give yourself an intuitive reading, and some foundation metaphysical principles for raising your vibration. These are all the things I used at the beginning of my own journey, and that have led me to where I am today.

You will take home your own Soul Journey 2018 Card Spread Workbook, a Journal and a crystal keeper.  Please bring your favourite tarot or oracle deck and a special crystal to task as your 2018 Guiding Stone. Bring them from home or choose from the selection at Nicole’s Pop Up Shop. You’ll also need something to write with. Afternoon tea will be served. Suitable for beginners and advanced practitioners. This workshop is open to adults only (or those 16 and above whose parents deem this a suitable workshop for them!)
