Why You Should Join My YOM Community

“Let your community be your testimony.” 
~ Jaco Strydom

I’m busy creating an online Learning Academy for next year. Why? I’m so darn passionate about helping you to connect to your inner wisdom, intuition and psychic abilities. And you can get access as a Foundation Member now by joining my YOM Community. (Ready to jump in? Click Here)

Imagine that you are lost, stuck, miserable, confused or hating on yourself. You don’t know what to do. You don’t know how to help yourself or how to move forward.

Imagine that you’re full of ideas, but they all lead in different directions and you don’t know which one to choose.

Imagine that you always lead with your head, but that your heart – your intuition – often shows up and gives you a different take on things which you always ignore. Afterwards, when your head was wrong and you wished you’d listened to that inner knowing, you wonder why you always second-guess yourself.

In each of these situations, your intuition and inner knowing is a compass that can guide you forward. Most people have just forgotten how to use it and I know how to show you!

I’m passionate about helping people to reclaim their natural intuitive and psychic ability, to stop being afraid of it, and teaching them how to use it in their daily lives. The change I want to make in the world is to teach you how to reconnect with your own inner knowing and natural spirituality and to understand that being empathic, psychic, sensitive and intuitive is normal and good. Being intuitively connected empowers us to know ourselves, to become self-aware, to live more authentically and to become more confident in ourselves, our direction and our decisions. It helps us to live as better and more satisfied versions of ourselves. Yep, that’s the world I want to live in. That’s why I want you to join my membership community.

If you’re ready, and if you’re looking for a teacher and mentor, I’m here. And so is a beautiful community of like-minded souls. Come join us.
All my love, Nicole xx

Not convinced? Let some of my YOMMERS give you their feedback on what it has meant to them to join my community:


Hey Nicole!!!! 

I just needed to drop you a line to tell you how excited I am about the Academy Of Learning that you are creating for our tribe! I know that there are many people out there that read your blog like I have and are just timid about signing up to join the YOM community. Maybe they are like I was, and think it is just a daily planner. OH, but we both know it is more than that. Lets see….I started following your blog back in 2012. Your free guided meditations and blog helped me get through cancer treatment and the death of my mom. I loved your Kimberley stories, and occasionally you would put some journal activities for us to partake in. Then you created your YOM planner, and community….and I was like….I don’t do planners. If I had KNOWN that it was much more than a planner, I would have joined then. However, I was slow to the take….but I did join  GeSHiDoMo in 2017, which came with a online group. By being in that group of such welcoming ,wonderful people, I was convinced to join the YOM community for 2018. Talk about a life changing year for me! Wow! By February 2019 I was on a plane to Australia going to your Advanced Channeling Retreat! I had never been overseas in my life! The Tribe and you (Ben and the dogs, too) so embraced me and let me feel so welcome! I think about that so much. People I had never met in person offering to let me stay with them, pick me up from the airport….DRIVE ME FROM BRISBANE TO BYRON BAY….I tear up now thinking about it. The retreat was all I could hope for and more, and I now have life long friends that I so cherish. Most importantly, I had been looking for my teacher for a very long time on my spiritual quest. I remember reading this particular blog post. https://cauldronsandcupcakes.com/2018/03/08/last-one-standing/ and thinking “I have found her.”

You are such a profoundly inspirational writer as well as teacher,  I think your own writing will sum up what I love about you the most. https://cauldronsandcupcakes.com/2019/02/20/the-authority-of-soul/ Incidentally, when you wrote this I was on retreat with you…..I remember coming out of retreat and reading this…thinking yes. This is exactly why I love this woman as my mentor, friend and fellow traveler. To quote your own words:

“One of the things that is most important to me as a metaphysical teacher is for you to understand that your ultimate power lies within you, your ultimate authority and wisdom also. This is YOUR life, and when you learn to tune in to your own wisdom you become empowered to make the decisions that are right for you. No-one knows you better. And everything I teach is for the purpose of helping you know yourself, to connect you to your inner wisdom and to help you forge your own considered path in the world.” 

I just really wanted to give my deep heart filled thanks to you and your team. I look so forward experiencing the YOM community evolve into Your Academy For Learning., and where this will take the tribe and myself next.  

You wrote in a blog once….”If you are looking for a teacher, here I am”…….and yes you are. Always. 

Much love to you, Christi


I have been using the ‘Year of ME’ planner since 2016 and to say it has been life changing is not an exaggeration. 

The one thing I love about working with Nicole and her diary is that she has a knack of empowering and guiding you without you ever feeling like you’ve got it wrong or you don’t belong. 

What do I love about the diary the most? It helps me get clear about ‘everything’ in my life, on a daily basis, a weekly & monthly basis and quarterly. The reviews I feel are what I find most helpful plus I can work at my own pace.

Plus you’ve got the added bonus of the FB group which is so supportive & respectful of each other. 

Some folk turn on the TV in the morning for the news, but I go straight to my inbox and look for “Cauldrons & Cupcakes”…Nicole is the BEST guide & I feel so blessed to be part of this community, and I’m sure you will too

What has the YOM community given me?

It has given me the gift of myself. It has reconnected me to long forgotten pieces and parts of my soul that have lain dormant, forgotten and neglected. It has taught me to honour me, care for me, tune in to me and to be gentler with myself. It has connected me to a tribe of women who are just like me. They are sensitive, searching and have experienced life in all it’s bloody glory. They have huge hearts, wise words, and comforting hugs. In fact, some of my closest friends now in my own little circle are women I have met because of Nicole and YOM.

Belonging to YOM means I know that there is a place that I can reach out at any time of the day or night and someone will be there to listen, laugh with or support me.

I am on a spiritual journey, hungry for knowledge. Belonging to YOM means I always have access to information, classes, courses, a pool of talented, experienced souls and a wise teacher leading the tribe.

My planner is a jouney into me at the start of every year. It is solitude, reflection, heart space and starting the year off right. Using oracle cards and meditation, I create a clear vision for the year ahead. I have also developed the habit of tracking my finances and looking at my net position at the end of every month for the first time in my life! I love the weekly cards, the gratitude practise and knowing when the moon is full or new.

With, Nicole, and through YOM I have found a space where my hungry soul is fed and I have found a safe and nurturing place where my soul feels home.

Testimonials for Nicole for Year of Me

Testimonial about using the Planner

I am a planner girl from way back! I love a hard copy planner I can write my appointments and meetings in but like many people I’ve never quite found the ideal planner for me.

At the start of 2016 I started working with the Year of Me Planner created by Nicole Cody. Nicole’s planner offered me much more than the traditional planners I had worked with before, and has become my go-to planner ever since.

The Year of Me planner allowed me to integrate my spiritual work along with my practical day-to-day schedule. Spending time analysing the year that had just ended, seeing how the year ahead looked, and using oracles cards to get a feel for my week, month and year has guided me to a place I could never foresee these past three and a half years.

The practical nature of the planner has allowed me to tick more off my to-do list than I ever thought possible. The process Nicole shares in the planner has also helped me gain clarity around my bigger personal and professional goals, allowing me to step more fully onto my true path.

If you’re looking for a planner that takes you deeper, that supports you on your spiritual path, and helps you tick off your to-do’s, I highly recommend the Year of Me Planner.

Testimonial about the course and community

In 2016 I purchased Nicole Cody’s Year of Me Planner and twelve month online course and support forum – and I have been a part of the community ever since!

I’ve attended a number of Nicole’s retreats and knew that the guidance she would offer through the course would help me reach the goals I wanted to achieve each year. What I didn’t realise was that the online community would become one of my favourite places to hang out online, to grow, learn and support others, and receive support in return.

The Year of Me course and support materials Nicole has created really do help you reach your personal and professional goals with grace and understanding of where you’re at and what your needs are. Knowing there is a community behind you, supporting you and cheering you on, is an incredible part of this journey, one I am glad I made the choice to be part of.

Would You Like Me To Include You In My Meditations?

https://cauldronsandcupcakes.com

“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

I was horrified the first time it happened…

“Most fears of rejection rest on the desire for approval from other people. Don’t base your self-esteem on their opinions.”
~ Harvey Mackay

I remember, years ago, when I first started channelling.

It was excruciating.

My logical mind was stuck in judgement, cynicism, scepticism and disbelief. My soulful self trusted anyway and urged me on. I was conflicted, confused and stuck, with no-one to show me the way or help me.

And then my sister stepped forward.

She used her scientific curiosity and encouraged me to do the same. With her beside me I stepped more and more into the person I am today. I worked from a trance channel space, with my sister or trusted friends sitting with me, asking questions, guiding the sessions and recording them for me or taking notes.

At first I channelled Guides and Spiritual Beings. Their messages were helpful and wise. We found evidence of things that proved that I wasn’t making it all up. That helped me to not give up. I worked on my craft and became more and more competent in what I was doing. It was fascinating. I began to feel good about my abilities.

And then the awful day came.

I was with my sister and some Aboriginal friends; Vynette, Leanna, and Liz. We meditated together and then I settled into the trance space. But instead of channelling one of my Guides I channelled this squeaky-voiced, childlike being.

She told us her name was Sokli, and that she was what we humans would call a fairy.

My friends asked her many questions, to which she happily responded. Sokli was funny and earnest and talkative.

The session ended and everyone was abuzz.

Everyone except me.

I was horrified. I had just channelled a fairy. What if someone found out? How would anyone take me seriously ever again? I didn’t know anyone who channelled fairies. All the spiritual and psychic folk channelled dead people or Ascended Masters and Master Guides and Very Important Energies With Wise Sharings For Humanity.

Perhaps it was a fluke, I convinced myself. But at the very next session she turned up again. And again. And again.

Gradually we began to know her well. That was over twenty-five years ago, and Sokli has now become a dear friend and companion. She’s still funny and wise, and all of my students and clients who have met her have been entranced by her eagerness to help, her specific and personalised wisdoms about health, food, crystals, animals and plants. Sokli is generous and caring, and she has a beautiful innocence and straightforward way about her.

I’m embarrassed that I was so awkward about all of this emerging spiritual and psychic phenomena back then, and about people finding out that I believed in fairies. I still worried so much about how I would appear to others, and about my credibility.

Now I feel blessed to have Sokli as one of my crew.

Humans from all corners of the earth have long believed in spirit beings who came from the earth herself, and who could – at times – walk between worlds or dimensions. Not Gods. Not Angels. Not ETs. Beings different to ourselves who are intrinsically tied to nature and the planet. There are many names for them. Many cultural beliefs. Our Ancient Tribes have always believed.

Children believe in them.

But as adults in the modern Western world, we are taught that this is childish. After twenty-five years of experience, I beg to differ.

Come hang out with me and Sokli in Brisbane on June 22 (Details here) and find out for yourself.

And don’t worry if you live too far away to make it. After the event we’ll create a special online package to share the magic with you, no matter where you live!

Have You Ever Met A Fairy?

“Magic exists. Who can doubt it, when there are rainbows and wildflowers, the music of the wind and the silence of the stars? Anyone who has loved has been touched by magic. It is such a simple and such an extraordinary part of the lives we live.” 
~ Nora Roberts

Hello, Lovelies!

Have you ever met a fairy? Do you want to?

If the answer is YES then I invite you to come join us on Saturday June 22 for a very special event.

You could call it a Fairy Workshop, and you would be right. My beautiful friend Sokli will be hosting the main part of our event, and Sokli is a fairy. How can she do this? I’ll be channelling her, so she can speak to you directly.

Sokli is going to speak about:

  • How to make friends with fairies
  • What fairies know about nature and the seasons and how this knowledge can help you
  • Important messages about the planet right now and why fairies need your help
  • Fun and interesting stuff that will help you to improve your wellbeing and health
  • How to create a crystal grid to energise food and turn it into healing medicine for your body or for a loved one or a pet

Together we’re also going to:

  1. Lead you on a Guided Meditation (you’ll receive access to a copy of the recording after the event so you can do the meditation whenever you want);
  2. do a little Winter Solstice colouring project;
  3. and make and activate a crystal grid (you’ll get to take this home with you too).

This event isn’t just a workshop though! It’s also a Tea Party! Saturday 22nd of June is Winter Solstice, and the energies support friendship, connection and celebration.

We’ll be serving a delightful assortment of sweet and savoury delights as a satisfying Tea Party Lunch. (Gluten Free and Vegetarian options available – you just need to let us know your special requirements).

There will be time to chat, to hug, to meet new friends and old. It’s the loveliest coming together to celebrate our shared love of magical happenings, ritual, intuition, nature, fairies, crystals and friendship.

Can you bring your children? Yes, of course, as long as they are old enough to enjoy the workshop content and engage in the activities.

Tables seat 8, so if you want to get a group together or sit with friends please let us know by emailing Trish Lyons at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com.

If you feel like making the occasion extra magical then dress up in your favourite Fairy Theme, or add a little Garden Magic to your outfit (think flowers, leaves, and all other lovely nature-themed goodness). There will be a prize for the Best Dressed, and some extra little surprises as well.

Of course, there will also be a goody bag for everyone because I never run an event without including a goody bag. All the best parties have them!

While you enjoy the party feel free to browse our Winter Solstice Pop Up Shop, which will have a delightful range of crystals and special spiritual and self-care items available. For purchases from the shop, we can take cash or card on the day!

Cost for this event is $104 all inclusive. This includes the workshop, High Tea, goody bag, crystal grid and access to a recording of the meditations after the event.

We are so excited for you to join us!

And if you live too far away to come to the live event? Stay tuned because we’ll have a special online package to share the magic with you, no matter where you live!

Guided Meditation and Advice for Sensitive Souls and Emerging Psychics

“Empaths did not come into this world to be victims, we came to be warriors. Be brave. Stay strong. We need all hands on deck.”
Anthon St. Maarten

 

As most of you know, I’m psychic, and have been this way to varying degrees all my life. All of us are intuitive – that’s our birthright, and it’s hardwired into us. Even the most disconnected or ‘non-believing’ of us will still have gut feelings or hunches strong enough that we can acknowledge and act upon them.

But some of us have a much greater sensitivity than that. If you have experienced any of the following (not as a result of mental illness, or a drug or illness induced state!) then this post is written for you:

  • lucid dreaming
  • deja vu
  • precognitive dreams or visions
  • awareness about people, places, objects or events that has no rational cause nor explanation
  • an ability to know information about people
  • sensing the energy field around people or places, and having that affect your body or emotions
  • seeing energy, faces, or other images either in your mind’s eye or through your own eyes
  • hearing voices or knowledge not your own – either as a physical sound, or as a voice, knowing or thought that arises inside you that you somehow understand is not your own
  • having remembrance or recognition of past lives
  • being drawn to psychic activities and tools, such as cards, books, courses, modalities and crystals – where you feel compelled to have or work with these, even when your rational mind protests or doesn’t understand
  • sudden recognition of things previously not known to you – such as knowing the names or uses for things outside your profession or fields of study, or knowing your way around a place you have not ever visited
  • sensing, seeing or hearing Guides, Angels, those who have crossed over, and other energetic beings
  • connection with star people, recurring dreams about or remembered incidences of UFO or alien encounters – these are often not threatening or unpleasant
  • recurring dreams for which you have no explanation
  • a strong sense that you are here to do something, to contribute something, to help in some way – this feeling becomes stronger over time until, if you haven’t worked out what it is yet, it becomes almost a sense of despair or desperation
  • saying or writing things without knowing where the information is coming from
  • performing healing, art, writing, music and other creative acts where you suddenly ‘know’ what to do, even if you have never been shown before
  • understanding animals, children or others with no voice to communicate
  • sudden strong emotions flooding over you that are totally unrelated to what is happening right now

I’m sure there’s more that I could add to that list, but that’s a start…

If you’re sensitive energetically then you are bound to be sensitive in other areas of your life.  This is especially true if you are going through a process of spiritual or psychic awakening. At a time of awakening, energies and abilities that have been dormant within you begin to assert themselves in your life.  This can be quite a turbulent and confusing time.

From long experience, these are my suggestions about how to live as a Sensitive Soul as you begin to Awaken.

  • Rest.  When we’re growing and changing, rest is one of the best gifts we can give ourselves.
  • Avoid crowded places such as shopping centres and football games when you are feeling particularly sensitive or energetically vulnerable.
  • Avoid difficult relationships and people who drain, upset or unbalance you.  Limit contact with the crazy-makers in your life.
  • Eat well.  Favour organic foods, with an emphasis on fresh, local produce, with plenty of leafy green vegetables and root vegetables, rice, pulses and yoghurt. Avoid processed food and sugar. Some people may need to avoid meat at this time.  Others may need meat to ground them.  Listen to your body.  If you’re especially sensitive avoid wheat as well.
  • Avoid alcohol, drugs and stimulants.
  • Take a good powdered magnesium supplement.  Your muscles and nervous system use magnesium to relax and it we also burn it like rocket fuel when we are engaging in energy work and psychic activity.
  • Drink plenty of fresh, clean water.
  • Use yoga, qi gong or tai chi to ground you and move energy through your body.
  • Spend time in nature.
  • Spend time on your own, exploring the things that interest you.
  • Avoid chemicals in your cleaning and personal care products. Avoid places that have a strong artificial or chemical energy.
  • Use natural and alternate therapies to help clear and support your body.
  • Meditate.
  • Pray, and talk with God.
  • Explore vibrational therapies such as bush or bach flower essences, crystals, music, colour and aromatherapy (Want to know about my favourite essential oils for spiritual support and how to get them? Email me at channelnc@gmail.com)
  • Trust, look for support and know that things do get easier over time.

I’ve created a very simple six minute guided meditation to help you open to your spiritual gifts in an energy of safety and protection. Once you know the basics you can easily guide yourself through the process on your own.

Love and Light, ❤ Nicole xx

Guided Meditation for Managing and Reducing Stress

“You have to just relax, calm down, take a deep breath and try to see how you can make things work rather than complain about how they’re wrong.” ~ Tom Welling

 

There’s so much change around us right now.

Some of us are overwhelmed with loss and grief and endings.

Some of us are overwhelmed with opportunity and don’t know which direction to pursue.

Most of us have too much on our plates, overflowing to-do lists and simply not enough time in the day to get to everything we need to do.

Deep Breath by Tomas A

Deep Breath by Tomas A

Stress reduces our ability to cope and to be resilient.

Sometimes we need to take a deep breath and slow down for a moment.

You know what I’m talking about…

Disappointments. Things that don’t go to plan. Endings we weren’t expecting. Futures that don’t conform to what we’d been led to believe. Judgments against us. Misunderstandings. Our body misbehaving or breaking. Hopes and dreams that end up in tatters at our feet. Grand ideas that tank. Injustices. Broken promises. Wrongs.

Sometimes life just knocks the wind out of our sails.

Or that’s how it feels…

One thing I’ve learned about life’s hard knocks is that although we may get winded, if we can just take a good deep breath, then pause and take another, we often find things aren’t as bad as they first appeared.

Sometimes, of course, it really is that bad. No matter. Breathing helps. Taking a good deep breath centers you; it calms you down, puts you back in your body, and helps clear your head. Then you can better see your way forward.

We are, all of us, stronger than we know. And it’s usually not until we’re really tested by life that we ever find this out.

Tree of Life by Sharon Cummings

Tree of Life by Sharon Cummings

I have recorded a twenty minute Guided Meditation for helping you to deal with stress and overwhelm. It uses breathing and visualisation to help reduce tension in your body so that you come to a place of calm and better flow of thoughts, feelings and energy.

All you need to do is make sure that you won’t be disturbed, and then sit or lie quietly and follow along with the sound of my voice.

Nicole Cody’s Guided Meditation for Reducing Stress

In endings and difficulties are always the seeds of a new beginning. I’m intending support, healing, connection, guidance, positive flow and direction for you.

Keep breathing. Trust in good outcomes.

All my love, Nicole ❤ xx

 

January New Moon Ritual and Meditation – 2018

“Freedom is not the absence of commitments, but the ability to choose – and commit myself to – what is best for me.” 
Paulo Coelho

“Unless commitment is made, there are only promises and hopes; but no plans.” 
Peter F. Drucker

 

 

Today, January 16, heralds the new moon. This New Moon is in Capricorn, and its energy is particularly important. This moon is about plans, commitment, effort and consistency – not just for now but for the year ahead and even beyond that. You can use the energy of this New Moon to truly name and claim the personal or professional mountain whose peak you aspire to reach. It’s a new moon to help you reach your highest potential.

Tonight’s new moon brings a powerful energy for creating positive change and manifesting your heart’s desires. It is also a great time for connecting into your own intuitive wisdom, and deepening spiritual connection. Everything is created first in the zero-point field, that place of potent emptiness that resides as the spaces between the fabric of existence.  The New Moon is potently linked to this space of possibility, where our thoughts and intents begin to shape matter itself into our new reality.

Tonight’s new moon supports us being attuned to our path for the year ahead, to claiming our dreams, and to reaching our highest potential for this lifetime. Part of this energy is also about recognising and letting go of whatever no longer serves our highest good.

If all you do is spend some time today or in the days ahead contemplating what you want to experience, create, be, manifest or share in 2018 or beyond and then shaping that into a plan that’s enough. But if you’re looking for ritual and deeper connection under the influence of the New Moon in Capricorn read on…

Perform Your Own New Moon Ritual

I’ve created a simple guided meditation and a series of rituals to help anchor your intentions using the transformational forces of the moon as she moves from this place of darkness back into light.

You can do any or all of these simple practices, and you can do them today or any time in the next seven days/nights, up until January 22, 2018.

You’ll need this simple preparation:

  • choose a crystal or stone to hold in meditation (If you’re using my Year of ME Planner use your 2018 stone!)
  • choose a  second stone or crystal to return to the earth after the meditation
  • have a glass of water ready
  • have a journal and a pen

Journal First:

Some time today, or before your meditation tonight, take your journal and write a letter to the Universe outlining what you intend to leave behind in the past.

This could be behaviours, attitudes, situations, relationships or any other thing that weighs you down or makes you feel bad within yourself.

Start with the words ‘I now release…’ and then add your list. When your letter to the Universe is finished sign it with the words ‘And it is so.” Then sign your name and add the date.

Begin again on a new page.

Sit in reflection, and then write down what you want to have, create or do, especially those things where you have previously been blocked by fear or insecurity.

Words that can be useful to help strengthen that state of creating or manifesting include the action words: claim, invoke, manifest, intend, believe, draw to me, welcome into my life, create, become, do, transform, embrace, love, adore, cherish, make, construct, transform.

Write a second letter to the Universe, beginning with the words, ‘As I step into my Highest Potential…’

Then list the things you wish to have, create, do or be. Be as broad or specific as feels right for you. Conclude your letter with the words. ‘I claim this and more, for my Highest Good. And it is so.’ Then sign your name and date it.

Keep your pages somewhere safe, although there is no need to read them again unless you are drawn to do so.

Standing Meditation for Clearing, Shifting, Healing and Grounding

This Meditation will ground you, as it opens you up to more of your own natural energetic and psychic ability.  It is very comforting for people who spend most of their day indoors, or in front of a computer.

Note: You will need your glass of water for this meditation.

  1. Find a place outside where you can comfortably stand barefoot on the skin of the earth.  If this is impossible in your climate then stand barefoot at a window or on timber floorboards. Find a place where you can do this without interruption.  It is up to you what time of the day you complete your practice.
  2. Drink half a glass of water.
  3. Then stand barefoot on the earth (or in your chosen place) with your face turned toward the sun (or the moon if you do this at night). Can’t find the sun or moon? Just look up at the sky!
  4. Close your eyes.  Draw in sunlight through your heart chakra, or if it is night, draw in moonlight through your third eye.  If it’s cloudy, draw clouds and wind and rain and all those other elements into your belly via your sacral chakra (the second one up, three finger widths below your belly button. Do this for two to five minutes.  Let your body be energised, balanced and healed by the gifts of nature.
  5. When you’re finished, drink the rest of the glass of water.

Expect to feel different in the days to come.  Expect to be shown things in dreams, to become more perceptive and intuitive.  If you want to work with energy or psychic skills, expect them to become stronger and clearer.

Even if you do not want to choose a life path that is more actively spiritually and psychically connected, you will become more emotionally open, more energised, and more naturally intuitive.

Thank you, for working on your own self growth. Every time we do, it lifts the energy of Mass Consciousness.  Every time we clear and shift old energies, it makes its easier for ourselves and everyone else to become more open to our Soul Truth.

Simple Guided Meditation for Connecting To Your Path and Highest Potential

I’ve recorded a fifteen minute guided meditation for working with this New Moon. You can use this meditation on any evening from tonight up until January 22, 2018, or on any future new moon to come to help keep you connected into this energetic support.

Before you begin the meditation, make sure that you have two stones or crystals – one to keep for yourself and one to gift back to the earth.

When you’re ready, just click play:

After your meditation is concluded you may want to hold your personal crystal and journal any insights that have come during your meditation, or that come after. Use this personal crystal any time you want to quickly connect back into this awareness of your connection and highest potential. It is a great meditation and journalling aid.

In your own time take the second stone and return it to nature. As you place it on the ground, or cast it into a river, lake or ocean, visualise the stone anchoring light, truth peace and hope. See it as a small beacon of light that is rippling out the energies of Highest Potential all over the world.

See yourself in the same way. Thank you for helping anchor positive shift for yourself and humanity.

Holding you in my intentions, prayers and meditation,

Guided Meditation for Healing Childhood and Emotional Trauma

“How odd that we spend so much time treating the darkness, and so little time seeking the light. The ego loves to glorify itself by self-analysis, yet we do not get rid of darkness by hitting it with a baseball bat. We only get rid of darkness by turning on the light.” 
~  Marianne Williamson

 

November is a month for knowing ourselves deeply, for healing old hurts and for prioritising and redesigning our lives so that they better represent the person we are and the person we want to become. It is an excellent month for healing the hurts and low-self-worth issues that stem from the bullying or judgments of others directed at you as a child, or through your adult years until now. This month’s energies also support you to move from a limited or stuck version of yourself, or a small version of yourself, to one that is vibrant with your true colours, and full of kindness and possibility.

I have created this fifteen-minute guided meditation for you to help you to heal and release pain and trauma from childhood, or from any period in your life prior to today.

You might like to choose a favourite crystal to hold as you do this meditation. Find a quiet place where you can sit or lie comfortably without being disturbed. Give yourself some integration time after the meditation is finished, or allow yourself to fall asleep. You may also want to journal after the meditation too. Just do what feels right for you, and know that you can return and listen to this meditation again any time you want.

When you’re ready click on the arrow on the box below to begin the meditation.

 

Treat yourself and everyone else kindly today,

Much love, Nicole ❤ xoxo

Guided Meditation For Clearing Guilt, Grief and Trauma

“But pain’s like water. It finds a way to push through any seal. There’s no way to stop it. Sometimes you have to let yourself sink inside of it before you can learn how to swim to the surface.”
~ Katie Kacvinsky

 

A good friend of mine is unwell right now. I’m not surprised. He is a caring practitioner who goes to great lengths for his patients. When one of them deteriorates or passes away, despite his best efforts, he always feels he could have done more, should have done more…

The emotions of grief, guilt and trauma can move deep into the body. They sit in our throats, our lungs, our hearts, our bellies.

Unexpressed, these trapped emotions weaken our immune function, and our digestion. They affect our physical organs, making them more prone to illness and, over time, dis-ease.

Grief sits in the lungs. It makes it hard for us to breathe. The words we cannot speak stay lodged in the back of our throat. Colds, flu, asthma, strep throat, allergies, sinus – all of these things can move into a body that is holding deep grief.

Guilt is inwardly-expressed judgement of the self. It slows our blood, and cools us. It stagnates our flow. Inadequacy, despair and over-thinking characterise guilt that is trapped and endlessly cycling within the body. Guilt can affect the heart, the lungs, the kidneys, liver and gall-bladder. It wrecks our digestion, and over time our hormone levels and function. Our bodies become unable to repair themselves efficiently.

Trauma is shock stuck within the body. In sensitive and empathic people this usually happens when they are working in a caring capacity, and their attention and efforts are directed at the well-being of someone else in a traumatic, high emotion or distressing situation. Your body fails to process any personal shock and trauma you may experience because you have diverted all of your energies outward in caring for others. It can also happen when you are sitting emotionally open and connected and you suffer a sudden fright or when you tune in deeply to the suffering of another. Fright, trauma and shock are then stored deep within your body, allowing you to continue to function in helping others. But its effect is cumulative. Trauma sits in our gut, eventually causing disruption to our digestion, immune function, sleep patterns and brain function. It leads to anxiety and depression.

Holding grief, guilt and trauma within our bodies is a place that many intuitive, empathic and deeply caring people find ourselves. To love and to care is also to expose ourselves to hurt and to loss. Loving and caring deeply is risky, because when you live in that open-hearted state, love goes hand in hand with suffering. Still, I would advocate that you love anyway. That you care anyway.

One of your greatest gifts is that you care. One of your greatest gifts is that you can live heart-opened. Don’t change that. Just learn to manage it better.

It is simple but effective. It is something I do as part of my self-care routine every day.

A New Moon Guided Meditation for Our Highest Potential – December 2016

“The chief beauty about time
is that you cannot waste it in advance.
The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you,
as perfect, as unspoiled,
as if you had never wasted or misapplied
a single moment in all your life.
You can turn over a new leaf every hour
if you choose.”
~ Arnold Bennett

 

Today, Thursday December 29 heralds the new moon. This moon closes the door not only on 2016, but on the entire thousands-of-years-old patriarchal energetic cycle that began its conclusion in 2012. This new moon welcomes in an entirely new energetic era – one of balanced masculine and feminine energy, one of hope and compassion, one of community, connection, information and advancement. It is my belief that you have chosen to be alive at this time as we straddle two worlds, the old and the new.

Tonight’s new moon brings a powerful energy for creating positive change and manifesting your heart’s desires. It is also a great time for connecting into your own intuitive wisdom, and deepening spiritual connection.

Everything is created first in the zero-point field, that place of potent emptiness that resides as the spaces between the fabric of existence.  The New Moon is potently linked to this space of possibility, where our thoughts and intents begin to shape matter itself into our new reality.

Tonight’s new moon also offers us something extra. It’s a moon that supports us being attuned to our highest potential for this lifetime and an opportunity for us to leave the past behind and to truly embrace a positive future.

Tonight I will be holding space in my personal meditation for you as I sit with our Ancestors and Songlines crystal grid here at my farm. I will be intending that you move into your heart-space, and reconnect with your own Soul Wisdom. I will be intending 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.

There are 2023 individually dedicated stones within my grid. If you have contacted me via my blog or social media, then your name is here.

Note: For those of you who contacted me after yesterday’s cutoff time, I am adding your name to one large crystal that will anchor energy and intention for you all.

Perform Your Own New Moon Ritual

I’ve also created a simple guided meditation and a series of rituals to help anchor your own intentions using the transformational forces of the moon as she moves from this place of darkness back into light.

You can do any or all of these simple practices, and you can do them today or any time in the next three days, up until January 1, 2017.

You’ll need this simple preparation:

  • choose a crystal or stone to hold in meditation
  • choose a  second stone or crystal to return to the earth after the meditation
  • have a glass of water ready
  • have a journal and a pen

 

Journal First:

Some time today, or before your meditation tonight, take your journal and write a letter to the Universe outlining what you intend to leave behind in the past.

This could be behaviours, attitudes, situations, relationships or any other thing that weighs you down or makes you feel bad within yourself.

Start with the words ‘I now release…’ and then add your list. When your letter to the Universe is finished sign it with the words ‘And it is so.” Then sign your name and add the date.

Begin again on a new page.

Sit in reflection, and then write down what you want to have, create or do, especially those things where you have previously been blocked by fear or insecurity.

Words that can be useful to help strengthen that state of creating or manifesting include the action words: claim, invoke, manifest, intend, believe, draw to me, welcome into my life, create, become, do, transform, embrace, love, adore, cherish, make, construct, transform.

Write a second letter to the Universe, beginning with the words, ‘As I step into my Highest Potential…’

Then list the things you wish to have, create or do. Be as broad or specific as feels right for you. Conclude your letter with the words. ‘I claim this and more, for my Highest Good. And it is so.’ Then sign your name and date it.

Keep your pages somewhere safe, although there is no need to read them again unless you are drawn to do so.

Standing Meditation for Clearing, Shifting and Healing your Psychic Self

This Meditation will ground you, as it opens you up to more of your own natural energetic and psychic ability.  It is very comforting for people who spend most of their day indoors, or in front of a computer.

Note: You will need your glass of water for this meditation.

  1. Find a place outside where you can comfortably stand barefoot on the skin of the earth.  If this is impossible in your climate then stand barefoot at a window or on timber floorboards. Find a place where you can do this without interruption.  It is up to you what time of the day you complete your practice.
  2. Drink half a glass of water.
  3. Then stand barefoot on the earth (or in your chosen place) with your face turned toward the sun (or the moon if you do this at night).
  4. Close your eyes.  Draw in sunlight through your heart chakra, or if it is night, draw in moonlight through your third eye.  If it’s cloudy, draw clouds and wind and rain and all those other elements into your belly via your sacral chakra (the second one up, three finger widths below your belly button. Do this for two to five minutes.  Let your body be energised, balanced and healed by the gifts of nature.
  5. When you’re finished, drink the rest of the glass of water.

Expect to feel different in the days to come.  Expect to be shown things in dreams, to become more perceptive and intuitive.  If you want to work with energy or psychic skills, expect them to become stronger and clearer.

Even if you do not want to choose a life path that is more actively spiritually and psychically connected, you will become more emotionally open, more energised, and more naturally intuitive.

Thank you, for working on your own self growth. Every time we do, it lifts the energy of Mass Consciousness.  Every time we clear and shift old energies, it makes its easier for ourselves and everyone else to become more open to our Soul Truth.

I’ve recorded a fifteen minute guided meditation for working with this new moon. You can use this meditation on any evening from tonight up until January 1, 2017, or on any future new moon to come to help keep you connected into this energetic support.

I’ll be starting my own meditation at 8pm AEST, if you’d like to tune in around that time, but I also love the idea of a wave of meditation across the world. Take a moment to tune into my crystal grid, and the central rose quartz stone. Send it a little love, light and positive intention. Feel that intention radiate back out into the world, amplified.
