Monday Oracle – 12 February 2018

She decided to free herself, dance into the wind, create a new language. And birds fluttered around her, writing “yes” in the sky.”  
~ Monique Duval

 

Hello, Lovelies!

In February we are building on the strength and intuitive connection we found for ourselves at the beginning of the year. February brings opportunities for planning, learning and growing in order to bring about positive change. Keep that in mind as we look at the gifts of awareness which the oracle card Sleeping Beauty brings us.

This week’s card has a message of support and encouragement.

Sleeping Beauty is here to reconnect us to the power of our dreams. In dreams all kinds of things can happen. When we are asleep we suspend our disbelief. In the land of dreams anything is possible. It’s a place where our wise self can communicate with us, and so can our guides, angels and loved ones.

This week expect that energy of guidance through dreams while we are asleep, and as ‘waking dreams’ where we are gifted ideas, insights, innovations and inspiration. Trust what comes. Know that we are being shown this for a reason. This could be ideas for life direction, work, relationships, health or creative projects. You might also get answers to problems that have confounded you for the longest time.

It’s a week of deep soul connection and illumination, and of the kinds of insights and ideas that can positively change the direction of our lives. Some of you might feel like you’ve finally woken up after living your life on automatic pilot for much too long.

Sleeping Beauty also reminds you that you could be visited by a creative idea from the past that needs to be dusted off and given life. Know that it is making itself known to you because it is time.

Make your creative work, planning and dreams a priority this week. You’ll be glad you did!

Supportive crystals this week?

Use Orange Calcite (pictured) to tune in to inspiration and to help those creative idea flow. It’s also a wonderful beginner stone for tuning in to the spiritual realms. Banded Agate creates a sense of safety, peace and belonging as you open up to living more fully as yourself. Great if you feel anxious about speaking up or sharing your gifts with the world! Sunstone helps you to sit in a place of abundance thinking so that you see the blessings and possibilities in life and to believe in your right to a better future. Rainbow Moonstone tunes you in to your dreams and subconscious mind, and to metaphysical messages.

 

Helpful essential oils?

Rose essential oil is my pick again for this week. Its sweet floral aroma is uplifting and heart opening. If you can’t find Rose then use Rose Geranium. Use these oils by placing a dab on wrists, neck and over heart as a perfume or diffuse. They are also heavenly in your bathwater.

Want to make your own blend? Sokli gave me this recipe ages ago. She calls it the Lucky Happy Magic Recipe and I find it marvellous for enhancing and supporting creativity. You’ll need Lavender 2 drops, Orange 4 drops, Ylang Ylang 4 drops, Sandalwood 3 drops. This recipe is one of my favourite essential oil blends to put in a diffuser or as a perfume or bath oil. I make up a little bottle of the mix and then I can add it to my bath or take it with me to inhale or wear. Always dilute in a little carrier oil before applying to skin, and remember that citrus oil should not be applied to any skin that will be in sunlight.

I choose to use Young Living essential oils because of their quality and energies. You can find all the oils 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, ‘Sleeping Beauty’, 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. 

 

Why You Need To Be On My March Retreat!

“Your soul knows the geography of your destiny. Your soul alone has the map of your future, therefore you can trust this indirect, oblique side of yourself. If you do, it will take you where you need to go, but more important it will teach you a kindness of rhythm in your journey.” 
John O’Donohue

Have you always wanted to attend one of my residential retreats? This year we are offering only two, and next year we will be running just one – a Soul Sanctuary at the end of 2019 – because we will be conducting a spiritual pilgrimage in place of our regular program.

In March this year, not so far away, we are holding a wonderful retreat in Byron Bay, Australia. This retreat, Awakening to Spirituality, is a retreat designed to help you connect deeply into your own soul energy, to develop a spiritual practice that can guide and restore you, and to know yourself better through meditation, journalling and various metaphysical practices. And it is much more than just a retreat. The pre and post-course support gives you six weeks of mentoring, connection and learning.

We have two just places left. Will one of them be yours?

Awakening to Spirituality is completely suited to beginners, to those of you who have had absolutely no experience at all but who have a yearning to explore your spiritual and psychic side.

But don’t let that deter you if you are further along the spiritual path.

This is also a retreat for you if you want to take your own spiritual practice deeper. If you are wanting to expand your skills, strengthen your existing psychic and intuitive abilities, and stabilise them so that they become a normal and natural part of your everyday life. If you are waiting for your breakthrough to the next level of your ability this retreat is for you. If you don’t have a regular spiritual practice but wish that you did, this retreat will help you to create space in your life for being in that soul space easily and more often.

If you are hoping to attend my August Retreat – Advanced Channelling and Energy Techniques using Sacred Geometry – and you haven’t done any work with me before then this is also an important foundation course to get you ready for that event. (And if you are ready for this please contact Dana now to put your name on the waitlist for information as the course is already nearly full and we may not end up making a public offering on this one!)

Our March retreat will tune you up to the energies of this new energetic era and actively accelerate your personal and spiritual development. During our time together I will be immersing you in a spiritual and energetic world where you will connect with your own gifts, and be given exercises and activities for your personal level of ability, and which are tailored to your specific energetic skillset. There will be time on this retreat for you to seek clarification and guidance with me too, about your spiritual practice, your next steps in life, and your path of service to others.

My retreats are much more than just a learning environment.  They are a safe place for your Soul to evolve.  They are a coming together of like-minded people for sharing and connection, and they are a journey that will accelerate your understanding of and love for yourself and your place in the world.

What Previous Participants Have Said:

‘Words can not express how amazing Nicole Cody retreats are. They really do have to be experienced. This changed my life and I really appreciate the time and effort that Nicole and Dana PA put in. So much wisdom and love surrounds Nicole – I took advantage of the payment plan – so I would highly recommend going along. I made so many lovely friends and had many breakthroughs.’ – Amanda C.

 If anybody is on the fence and wondering if they can actually invest money 💰 in themselves to do this retreat 🌈 I have to tell you what ever it takes if this retreat is calling you do the things you need to to make it happen 🌸 I have attended 3 of Nicole’s courses since I discovered her blog 💫And yes life changing 🦋
I have also met so many wonderful people and you will hear the phrase “finding my tribe” thrown around a lot 🌿
You will never regret going to Beautiful Byron for a life challenging and changing experience 🌷 – Beka L

 I’ll second those sentiments too. I went on a retreat 2 years ago and was so anxious but once I got there and met everyone, I was made to feel really welcome and cherished. Nothing was too much trouble and when I was ” stuck” there was plenty of support from some wonderful people. (Plus the food was awesome) – Mary P

And from my wonderful PA, Dana:

If you have ever wanted to attend a retreat with Nicole but felt you weren’t experienced enough, or that the retreat sounded a bit scary (because channelling and other things we do aren’t for everyone!), then our March “Spiritual Awakening” retreat is perfect for you! It is a very gentle beginners retreat. I cannot put into words how well Nicole, her guides, the food and the environment will nurture and support you.
I also wanted to remind you that we can work out a payment plan for you based on what works for you. Unfortunately our suppliers are putting up their prices, so this is the last time we’ll be able to offer this retreat at this price. Please don’t let money be the reason why you don’t join us. Places are starting to fill, so get in touch before we sell out!
Love and hugs to you all, Dana

Want To Learn How To Use Crystals?

“We do not need magic to transform our world. We carry all of the power we need inside ourselves already.” 
~  J.K. Rowling

I’ve collected crystals and stones since I was a small child. Over time – through my own meditations, from my Guides, my Aboriginal Aunties and a few wise Elders – I have come to understand their energies, how to tune in to them, and how to use them effectively in my life.

I know that many of you will also have a little stash of crystals in your possession, and perhaps a wearable stone or two. But I am sure you are not making the most of them. There is so much that you can do to support yourself with the energies of stones, and I’d love to show you how!

Come join me on Retreat, here in beautiful Byron Bay, Australia, from 25 November to 1 December, 2017. Over our week together I’ll teach you a solid foundation of skills and knowledge for choosing and working with crystals. I’ll also share practices with you to help support you on your journey, and develop your natural intuitive and psychic abilities. You’ll learn simple energy healing techniques, meditation and reflective journalling and card readings, all supported by crystals.

We’ll work together to craft our own tools for energy healing, as well as learning to use crystals to make essences, grids, mandalas, and meditation malas – among other things. And we’ll make a personal crystal talisman as a touchstone for the energies of 2018. (You’ll also be the first to hear about the new year’s energies and how you can welcome them in and use them to advance your life.)

My retreats are much more than just a learning environment. They are a safe place for your Soul to evolve. They are a coming together of like-minded people for sharing and connection, and they are a journey that will accelerate your understanding of and love for yourself and your place in the world.

You’ll go home after Retreat relaxed, well-fed (the food is divine!), energised and with a full toolkit of crystals, a solid spiritual practice for your own ongoing development, new friendships, peace in your heart, and a warm glow from being nurtured, supported and revitalised.

This week will suit everyone from complete beginners to those of you who are advanced in your personal or professional practice. It’s also a week where you will be able to recharge after the big year that 2017 has been, and where you will be able to prepare yourself for the new year and all its possibilities.

This is the first time we’ve offered the Working With Crystals retreat, and I know this will book out very quickly.

To find out more email my wonderful PA, Dana Hartnell, directly at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com and she’ll send you some more information and an Expression of Interest form just as soon as she can.

We look forward to having you join us for a very special and transformative experience.

Much love, Nicole ❤ xoxo

Announcing Temple of Light Meditation Retreat 23 to 29 September, 2017

“The calm within the storm is where peace lives and breathes. It is not within perfect circumstances or a charmed life… it is not conditional. Peace is a sacred space within, it is the temple of our internal landscape. We are free to visit it, whenever we seek sanctuary. Underneath the chaos of everyday living, peace is patiently awaiting our discovery… go within.” 
~  Jaeda DeWalt

 

I’m excited to announce my next residential retreat – my Temple of Light ™ Shamanic Meditation Retreat, to be held at Sangsurya, Byron Bay from the 23rd to the 29th of September, 2017

This isn’t your ordinary meditation course. This retreat is essentially an opportunity to connect more deeply with your Soul Energy and Guides than you might ever have thought possible. Let me tell you more…

There is a very special meditation that I practice on a very regular basis. It’s not just a meditation, it’s a destination – and it’s one of the things that has most helped me to come into my own intuitive and psychic abilities, and that has enabled me to deal with health problems, pain and suffering when there was no other help available.

In Ancient cultures our transitions from childhood to puberty, and from puberty to adulthood were marked by ritual, ceremony and the exchange of information. The rituals were especially important for individuals with psychic awareness. These individuals were given specific training in meditation and energy techniques to help them to connect with and explore their abilities, to travel deep within themselves, and to move into connection with the spiritual realms.

A shamanic journey is a journey within. This sacred journey allows us to access a level of consciousness where we can more easily tune into intuitive and spiritual guidance. We learn to listen to our bodies. We learn to listen to our hearts. We learn to listen to our souls and our own inner wisdom. We learn to listen to the Earth, and to all that surrounds us.

On such a journey we often discover things deeply buried – all manner of gifts and longings and talents neglected. We are able to practice Soul Retrieval as we connect to the aspects of ourselves that have long been lost, shamed or shunned.
When we embark on a shamanic journey we gift ourselves space to become whole again, in flow again, and we experience growth and peace.

Image from www.pexels.com

This particular shamanic meditation technique arose from a gift I was given long ago – a fragment of a sacred meditation – and the result is one I have channelled, developed and tuned over decades. I call this meditation Temple of Light ™, and it is one of the most important practices in my life. It supports you no matter what your religion or spiritual beliefs. This simple meditation technique allows you to access an energetic destination which is multi-layered and that last you an entire lifetime in terms of the insights, wisdoms and developments that it will help you to manifest for yourself and others. That is what the Temple of Light ™ is all about. No matter what your current level of knowledge, spiritual connection or metaphysical ability, this technique will work for you.

2017 marks the first year of a brand new energetic era. In this new energy of communication, connection, clarity and collaboration I have updated this meditation significantly. I have also introduced some shamanic rituals that I have not felt to share for a very long time.

Over this six day immersive experience I will guide you through a series of meditation and self-reflection exercises designed to open you up to your wise and intuitive self, your Guides and energetic helpers, and the talents and gifts within you.

The Temple of Light ™’s energetically connected ‘rooms’ will provide you with a beautiful and sacred shamanic meditation template that will allow you to manifest immediate change in your life, and to rapidly accelerate both your personal and spiritual development. Whatever your interests, the Temple of Light ™ will provide you with what you need, customized to your own energy and purpose. It is a place of comfort and sanctuary, attuned to your exact personal needs.

If you are interested in developing psychic or metaphysical skills, creating healing energy, or gaining access to creative or financial flow, or if you’re stuck and don’t know how to move forward, this is the retreat for you. It is suitable for complete beginners and advanced practitioners too.

We have not yet advertised this retreat, but the demand is high and many places have already been filled from people who have been waiting since 2012 when I last ran this event.

Will one of the last places be for you?

To find out more email my wonderful PA, Dana Hartnell, directly at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com and she’ll send you some more information and an Expression of Interest form. Please be patient. We are in school holidays right now and Dana is a work-from-home mum so don’t expect an immediate response, but I promise she will get to you just as soon as she can.

We look forward to having you join us for a very special and transformative experience.

Much love, Nicole <3 xoxo

Acceptance – A Short Documentary about Owning Who You Are

2016-07-20-14-31-49

“The things that make me different are the things that make me.”  ~ A.A. Milne

“You are always welcome at my table.” ~ Nicole Cody

 

Last year I invited my friend Kerry Warnholtz to come spend some time with me as I prepared for and then ran my Chakra Wisdoms retreat.

Kerry is a talented photographer and videographer who sees the world through soulful and ever-watchful eyes. I hoped that she might be able to capture some footage and a few stills for my new website. My brief to her was that I wanted her to somehow show the love and care I put into each event that I run, and how precious each of my students is to me – how much I take that teaching and mentoring responsibility into my heart.

Kerry didn’t just capture that – she captured me – a little snapshot into my life, and the struggles I have had in coming to a place of self-acceptance. This short film speaks a lot to my WHY – why I do what I do – and I thought many of you might relate to the struggles I had in my earlier life to accept myself as I am.

What I want you to know, more than anything, is that I believe in you and that I want you to be who you are and be true to yourself. Being you is the most important thing you can do, and it’s time. The world needs us to stop pretending to be who we are not or to represent ourselves in the world as less than we are. It’s time to embrace ourselves and each other in all of our glorious diversity and similarity.

So, watch this little documentary. Come meet me at my farm, and in my life, and know that you are always welcome at my table.

You are among friends here.

Thanks for sharing the journey with me,

Nicole <3 xx

Doing The Scary Thing Is Good For Us!

 

2016-07-26-06-20-03

“There is no illusion greater than fear.”
~ Lao Tzu

 

I did the scary thing last night.

In front of quite a large group of people I sat in trance and brought my Guides through so that they could address the group directly.

I wasn’t sure how it would go. I wasn’t sure if anyone would even want to come. But I decided to be brave and put it out there and then see what happened.

 

I’m no stranger to channelling. I’ve been doing this for almost thirty years. I teach it. I spend hours in this state every week.

But still…

I always have a dialogue in my head before I begin.

What if nothing comes through?

What if I make a fool of myself?

What if personal things about me end up being disclosed that I may not have wanted known?

What f I stuff it up?

You’d think that after all this time those voices would be quiet by now, but no. I have learned to let the dialogue happen, and to ignore it at the same time.

 

Last night I channelled in front of a group and something wonderful happened. Like it always does, every time I channel in front of a group. People in the audience heard messages just for them. My Guides were able to speak and get their messages out in ways that truly helped other people. My audience had a good time. They found some things out about themselves that will help them to continue on their own path.

Yes, Sokli managed to find a way to talk about poo. Yes, Rollo was his usual cheeky self and said things that would have made me blush and disclosed personal stories about me. It was still okay. It was okay because it was real, and I was able to be vulnerable and to trust this big group to be gentle with me in my vulnerability – and they were.

Thank you to everyone who came last night! It was a terrific evening, and I’m looking forward to having more evening channelling sessions next year.

 

What are you holding back because of fear? What do you fear to put forward, in case it doesn’t work, or you are judged for it, or _________________ (insert your own list of fears and worries)

Until mid December we have this wonderful opportunity to plant seeds of goals and dreams for the future by taking some small action step towards that thing now.

What could you do to take you closer to your dream? To take you closer to living a more authentic and satisfying life?

Take that tiny step. I promise it will be worth it.

Holding space for you to be all you came here to be,

Nicole <3 xoxo
