Building a New Crystal Grid

“Seriously, Nicole. These rocks weigh a tonne! I’ll get the tractor or we’ll be here til next year.” ~ Ben, ever-patient husband and rock shifter

We’ve been busy over the past few weeks, adding to a crystal grid built out on the earth here on my farm.

We prepared the site, Ben slashed the grass short, we gridded out the central stones and then we began constructing the complex design stone by stone.

In Ben’s massive farm shed where he houses our tractors we have racks and racks of stones. I’ve been collecting them for over twenty-five years. There are plenty here for any kind of grid we may like to construct, and many of them have already been in other grids. The energy they create is incredible.

Here’s Ben taking down the very old trays of my most precious smaller lasers, generators, raw points and Lemurian singing quartz.

It holds all the crystals that I will take to my Fairy Tea Party.

It holds all the crystals for my students in the upcoming Temple of Light Shamanic Meditation Retreat.

It holds all the crystals for my end-of-year event and for ‘Platform’ my final retreat for the year. (This is a Retreat for those of you who have a Calling and who need to get your message out into the world. We’ll be helping you craft your message, identify your audience and get your book or course outline written as well as a lot of other important practical and creative stuff like using social media. If that sounds like you, email my PA Trish Lyons directly at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com and she’ll add you to our pre-course list so you can be the first to access the course information and early-bird bookings.)

There are so many stones in this grid.

Wild stones. Polished stones. Tumbled stones. Orbs and generators. A cave. Working Stones and Shaman Stones, Meditation Stones, Healing Stones, Art Stones and Personal Talismans.

It’s been a long time since we’ve made a grid this big, or this magical.

Right now it’s being washed by gentle rain, and sung to by all the birds at out farm.

When the time is right I’ll post some images and perhaps add some extra stones for you.

Happy Weekend!
Lots of love, Nicole ❤ xx

Here You Are On Our Retreat Grid!

“My father used to say that stories are part of the most precious heritage of mankind.” 
~  Tahir Shah

 

As promised, here is a picture of our crystal grid here at retreat, which is very much still a work in progress.

This grid sits in the centre of our hall, on my Nana’s round lace tablecloth (it is nearly one hundred years old and was crocheted by Gran Heppell, Nana’s mum, for my Nan’s Glory Box. When I was fourteen Nana gave it to me.)

Each day we have added stones, starting with a massive Amethyst Light Library Point, and then an Elestial and a Lemurian Double terminated milky quartz, some raw rose quartz and amethyst. Later we added quartz points, raw black tourmaline, tumbled quartz, rose quartz, tourmaline in quartz, selenite, citrine, blue howlite and amazonite.

With each addition to the grid we have meditated and added energy to the stones. For every stone that represents a person or family myself or one of my students has held that stone, charged it with Light, programmed your names and our intentions into the stone, and then placed that stone in the grid with much love. If you stood here with us now, feeling this grid, you’d swoon with the overwhelming energy of it all.

My intention for this particular grid is that it allow all participants to step further and further into clarity, flow, purpose and clear life direction for 2018, supported by healthy self-esteem, intuition and life choices. I intend for the grid participants to move into abundance, in a way that magnetises them to the right relationships, opportunities and situations for their happiness and highest good. Essentially it’s a grid to help you grow, become more intuitive and emotionally satisfied, and to realise more of your full potential.

*Update: The grid is now concluded, and we thank you for taking part. All people who asked were added to the grid, and we also programmed a stone for all the YOMMERS (Year of ME Program) and one for all of our Cauldrons and Cupcakes crew – so be assured you were included!

Much love, Nicole  xx

PS – Want to buy some amazing crystals that were chosen and channelled by me, or learn some new spiritual skills? Our Brisbane Pop Up Shop and workshops will be held on 15 and 16 December. I’ll have a beautiful array of stones, as well as singing bowls, prayer shawls and journal, crystal jewelry, oracle and tarot cards and copies of my 2018 Planner and Planner  Crystal Sets.

Activities at our December event include a channelling evening with me and my Guides discussing the energies of 2018, and two workshops – one on creating a vision boards, and one for learning to use oracle and tarot cards and how to take this skill more deeply using journalling and crystals. We’d love you to come join us. More details here.

Join us in our Retreat Crystal Grid!

“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” 
~  Mother Teresa

Hello, Lovelies!

We’re starting our Working with Crystals retreat today in beautiful Byron Bay.

On every retreat I create a crystal grid in the centre of the room that holds a specific intent and energy for the group. This time I will be teaching my students how to make a grid, and they will help me to construct it.

Which is where you come in.

My intention for this particular grid is that it allow all participants to step further and further into clarity, flow, purpose and clear life direction for 2018, supported by healthy self-esteem, intuition and life choices. I intend for the grid participants to move into abundance, in a way that magnetises them to the right relationships, opportunities and situations for their happiness and highest good. Essentially it’s a grid to help you grow, become more intuitive and emotionally satisfied, and to realise more of your full potential.

We’re going to program a central crystal to hold that intention, and then place stones for individuals and groups (eg families or a community) too.

If you’d like us to include you please let us know in the comments below, or over on my facebook page.

My budding crystal masters and I will be so pleased to add you into our grid, and to hold positive space for you as we close out 2017 and welcome the energies of the new year.

I’ll post photos as it unfolds. Both the pictures here are from previous retreats, and the pictures in no way do them justice. (The curly red things in the photo below are friendship bracelets which we charged up in the grid and then wore! I wore mine for over a year before it finally fell off in the surf at Byron one morning as I went for a swim.)

Much love, Nicole  xx

 

 

The Crystal Farmer of Byron Bay

“Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you plant.” ~ Robert Louis Stevenson

 

We live on an organic farm, tucked in the hills behind Byron Bay. Our main focus is organic heritage citrus, beef cattle and bush tucker (Bunya nuts and herbs). But we have come to do a very good additional line of earthed and energetically charged crystals.

Our land holds an abundance of ancient trees and wildlife, and expanses of soft green grass and leaf litter where it is possible for me to lay stones out on the earth beneath these trees, or under open skies or where the various animals (eagles, koalas, platypus, wallabies, powerful owls etc) make their homes.

Neighbours have laughingly begun to call me a crystal farmer because I always seem to be planting or harvesting stones as I charge them up for my retreats and workshops.

In the giant shed where Ben houses his tractors I have row upon row of pallet racking, in which there are all of my boxes of stones. The boxes and crates are carefully marked. I have stones that have been in grids through such varied astrological events as the Mars, Saturn, Mercury Venus and Jupiter alignment of 2000 (this was on another farm, under wide open skies and nights crowded with stars) the 2012 Transit of Venus, the total solar eclipse of 2012, a partial solar eclipse in 2014, the transit of Mercury in 2016 and many supermoons and comet showers.

I also have crates for stones that have been in grids such as my 2016 Ancestors and Songlines grid, as well as stones that have been charged with the energies of plants, places and weather.

To do this energetic charging I lay out crystals on the earth (mostly – sometimes I place individual in trees or even in our creeks and waterholes) in various patterns that conform to the principles of sacred geometry, after which I leave them for a prescribed period of time.

Later I go back to harvest them, digging them out of the earth or from between the grass where it has grown long. All the crystals are then cleaned and placed into storage, ready for use.

I even charge up the stones we use in jewellery and mandala making.

Sometimes I play my Tibetan Singing Bowl over them, or I will tone and sing the songs my Aboriginal Aunties or other elders have taught me.

Eventually we harvest the stones. If the grid is very big I will often call upon Ben and our friends or neighbours to assist with bringing up the stones for me to clean and sort. It’s a lot of work, but once they are harvested and stored away they maintain that energy, ready for use at some future date.

Now we have our Crystal retreat, our mini-retreat and workshop, and our Christmas pop up shop and events coming up, as well as the Crystal Packs for our 2018 Year of ME Planner, we’ve been down in the shed for days, sorting and gathering and allocating stones. I’m bringing out some rare and precious ones for my students, and a few for sale.

And already I am planning a gigantic spiral grid of stones for the total lunar eclipse on January 31 in 2018.

So I guess it’s true – I’m a crystal farmer. I like to think of my harvested stones as the seeds that will help you to grow as you seek your own inner space, soul connection and intuitive path.

We’d love to see you at any of our events, or as part of our growing community of like-minded souls in 2018. You can click on the links to view our events for the remainder of this year. Information about our online community and 2018 courses will be available soon. As well as our community and year-long course and support we have an Awakening to Spirituality retreat for waking up your psychic and intuitive abilities in March 2018, and Advanced Channelling and Energy Techniques using Sacred Geometry in August 2018 – contact my wonderful PA Dana to put your name down on the list to receive more info about those on our pre-release list – she’s at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com

I’m really excited to share this journey with you, and I hope that one day you get to hold one of these special stones.

Sending so much love your way, Nicole  xx

 

Love and Devotion Look Like This

“Rather than remain a sealed jar, she sought only to pour herself out to others. Everything she did mirrored her faith. It was as though every waking hour of the day she was devoted to pleasing her God by serving others. This God that she worshiped consumed her. It didn’t ask for a brief visit to a temple, or a small votive offering of food or coin, or a few prayers every now and then. This God wanted all of her.” 
~  Francine Rivers

 

I don’t prepare for retreats the way that many other people do.

My priorities are different.

I am not thinking about funnels, or marketing, or what my hook is. I’m not calculating break-evens or what to sell you next.

No.

I am thinking about your soul. I am creating and holding space for you. I am placing you on a mala that I make with my own hands – choosing a bead for you, on which I will pray and meditate twice a day. I am choosing and preparing crystals for you, cleansing them and channelling their purpose and energies. I walk our rural property, creating grids of stones among the trees, or choosing stones from previous grids, some of them from years ago, but whose energies are important for the work we will do together. I am ensuring that your tools will best support you and your growth. I am honouring your spiritual journey. I am preparing the materials. I am crafting your experience. I am devoting myself to the journey, and to taking you with me to a place of transformation.

There are endless hours spent in this crafting, before we even come together. During our retreat I am yours. I pour myself entirely into the process. And I continue to do so once our event is over and you are navigating your way back into the wider world again. It is an honour and a great responsibility to be entrusted with your care.

Long after we part I will still be praying and meditating for you, sending you energy, wishing you well, night-flying to visit you and keep company a while.

I can’t do it any other way. I must give my whole self to this.

This is what it is to follow your heart, to follow a calling, to live with devotion.

I’m so grateful for this life,

Nicole  xoxo

The Eagles and the Crystals

“Believe something and the Universe is on its way to being changed. Because you’ve changed, by believing. Once you’ve changed, other things start to follow. Isn’t that the way it works?”
~ Diane Duane, So You Want to Be a Wizard

 

In January, we pulled down our massive Ancestors and Songlines crystal healing grid at our farm. Ben and my friend Satisha helped me to locate all of the stones that were beginning to be buried by the long summer grass that had grown up wildly all around them. We literally crawled around the grid on our hands and knees, feeling every inch of ground to pull out the stones which had lain there through sun and rain, moon and stars for nearly 8 weeks.

When the stones were removed I sorted through them and chose a selection to be tasked for my retreat students this year, plus a few extra that I may sell or give away at some stage. Ben then drove me and my stones to the very back of our property where the eagles live.

In the boughs of a mighty old gum tree is a huge platform made from sticks and branches. It is home to a nesting pair of wedge-tail eagles. The tree itself sits within a tangled thicket of scrub, privet and camphor. It’s private, secluded and the place holds an energy of wilderness and deep peace. The views from the top of the tree must be incredible. The birds would see our entire valley and river system, and then over the saddle of the hill behind them and into the next valley too. We often see the eagles and their fledglings soaring on the thermals around our farm. They are massive birds. Majestic. Fearless.

At the foot of this ancient tree, beneath the eagles’ nest I laid out a new crystal grid. I sang magic into it the way my old Aboriginal Aunties taught me. I added my own magic too, and the magic of my ancestral line. I wanted these crystals to soak up all of that energy, and the energy of the land, of the tree and of the eagles. Of course other creatures will add their own energies. There is so much native wildlife here. And there is the energy of country. It’s a tangible energy, and it makes the crystals sing.

On Tuesday afternoon we went back and retrieved these stones. They have been through wild storms, eclipses, full moons, dark moons, pink moons, bright clear skies and gentle sunsets. After so long in the dirt they were encrusted with earth and bits of leaf and grass. They smelled like sweet loamy soil and sunshine. And goodness, how they felt in my hand!

This weekend I’ll scrub them clean and lay them out in the sun to dry, and then I’ll choose one for each of my Beginners Channelling students, for them to learn how to use when our retreat starts just ten days from now.

Maybe one of these stones will find its way to you one day. I truly believe that they always find the person who needs them most.

They are simply wonderful. I know you’ll love them as much as I do!

Morning Healing Meditation Mandalas

“Outside the open window
The morning air is all awash with angels.”
~ Richard Wilbur, Collected Poems, 1943-2004

“The period between four and six in the morning is called the Brahmamuhurta, the Brahmic time, or divine period, and is a very sacred time to meditate. ”
~ Swami Satchidananda, The Yoga Sutras

 

And now on my travels I find myself in Cebu.

In this corner of the Philippines I still wake each morning at 4am to meditate in my room, after which I go sit on the empty beach for a while to watch the day dawn.

Yesterday morning I decided to make an impromptu crystal mandala to dedicate to the healing and wellbeing of a little girl named Imogen.

It’s a restful and evocative process, to create such a focal point for meditation and healing. I worked with what I had to hand – a stone from my pocket, a bracelet from my wrist, some flowers and leaves from nearby plants.

I enjoyed the process so much that I have decided to make a new healing mandala every day while I am here in Cebu.

Here is Imogen’s mandala. It features a Prehnite, Rutilated Quartz, frangipani and bouganvillea. And a whole lot of love.

By the time you read this post I may have already made this morning’s mandala. But you can be part of tomorrow’s.

Tomorrow I will be meditating on healing of childhood hurts, old family pain and ongoing issues, self-worth issues, insecurities and damaging or limiting stories imposed upon you by others. I’ll also be working on your base chakra, heart health and emotional security. If you’d like to be specifically included please add your name below or over on our facebook page.

Much love, Nicole <3 xoxo

 

After Meditation, Beach!

2016-02-27 08.44.33

“hark, now hear the sailors cry,
smell the sea, and feel the sky
let your soul & spirit fly, into the mystic…”
~ Van Morrison

 

So, my lovelies, I meditated at the crystal grid until 2am for all of us.

A huge effort, and this morning I am thoroughly exhausted. But happy.

So now we are off to the beach with Cafe Dog, for a walk and a cleansing swim.

After which I intend to come home and nap all day to integrate these new energies and to recover from the efforts of the past few weeks.

Sending so much love to you, as you move towards your Highest Potential,

Nicole <3 xx

Last Chance To Add Your Name To Our Grid

2016-12-18-12-49-17

“Seek out that particular mental attribute which makes you feel most deeply and vitally alive, along with which comes the inner voice which says, ‘This is the real me’, and when you have found that attitude, follow it.” ~  William James

 

I’m closing off our grid in a few hours. After 12pm Sydney time I cannot accept new names, or I will never have enough time to process them all!

Keep an eye out on Cauldrons and Cupcakes Facebook and Instagram pages over the next few days to see your stone, if you haven’t seen it posted yet. Sorry – I took a few days off social media over Christmas so I’m a bit behind with  my updates.

If you want a name added but don’t want it on social media, please let me know, or only give me first names!

Here’s the info on our grid in case you missed it:

To create a crystal grid on my property, to help to provide energetic support for us as we shift from the old energy into the new. For support from our ancestors and guides as we shift old family patterns and beliefs that no longer serve us. As we pattern-break for ourselves and our loved ones. I wanted to help support us as we leave 2016, and this age-old cycle of patriarchal energy.

I created this grid to help our feet find our souls’ own songlines as we walk into the new energy. So that we can become part of this great shift of consciousness by being who we came here to be, and doing what we came here to do as we move into 2017 and this dawning new energetic era.

Each stone takes me three minutes to dedicate.

I choose one that feels right for you. I hold it in my hands, I close my eyes, and I offer up my prayer and dedication – that your family line know healing, that you release old patterns, beliefs and relationships that no longer serve you. That you gently and easily let go of anger, guilt, shame, disconnection, old hurts. I pray and intend that your family line returns to a place of love, flow and abundance. That you move into your heart-space, and reconnect with your own Soul Wisdom. I offer up my prayer that your feet find their way in 2017. That your path becomes clear. That you can more easily be yourself. That you know and express yourself truly. That you live life to your highest potential. That you are loved for who you are. That you come to know how much you are loved.

I arrange the stones I have blessed and take a photo, so I can tag the picture on social media. I want you to feel involved and connected. I want you to know that you are not alone – that you matter, and that you are supported.

Then we carry the stones down to the grid, and I place them, one by one.

After which I go back to the computer, and gather more names, and write new lists and the process begins again.

 

There are over 1500 stones in the grid now. 1500 people, radiating love and positive shift to so many more.

I will be adding more stones to this grid until 12pm on Tuesday 27th December, 2016. (That’s Sydney, Australia time) If you’d like to add your name, please let me know in the comments below.

If you’ve already asked there is no need to ask again. I have you.

There’s another way you can help. You can make your own grid. For details go to the Free Stuff section in my shop, and select the Ancestral Healing Grid Instructions. (And be aware that it may take an hour or so for the information to be emailed after selection of this option.) It’s easy to do, even if you’ve never done something like this before.

Know that I’m thinking of you. Know that I’m holding you in my thoughts and prayers. That I’m holding space for you and your family right now.

:Love and Light, Nicole <3 xx
