A New Online Course For You! Craft A Visionary Talisman

“This is what rituals are for. We do spiritual ceremonies as human beings in order to create a safe resting place for our most complicated feelings of joy or trauma, so that we don’t have to haul those feelings around with us forever, weighing us down. We all need such places of ritual safekeeping. And I do believe that if your culture or tradition doesn’t have the specific ritual you are craving, then you are absolutely permitted to make up a ceremony of your own devising, fixing your own broken-down emotional systems with all the do-it-yourself resourcefulness of a generous plumber/poet.”
~ Elizabeth Gilbert

When I lived in the remote Kimberley district, during my year of psychic awakening, my Aboriginal Aunties taught me the importance of ritual, respect and self-empowerment.

Over the years I have had other Elders as teachers and mentors, and I have also had years of connection with my own energetic team as I have journeyed this spiritual path.

One of the rituals I now follow each year that supports me in very practical ways is the choosing of a Guiding Card for my year ahead, and then the creation of a Visionary Talisman. I have created a Visionary Talisman for myself every year for the past fifteen years, and I’ve found the personal and spiritual growth I have achieved during this time to have been accelerated by this intentional and mindful creative practice. It truly is a powerful tool for transformation and manifestation. The Talisman is also a lovely focusing tool to use for meditation and journalling work, and a strong visual reminder to me of my Guiding Card qualities and messages.

In this course, I’ll be showing you to how to connect with your own guiding card for the year ahead, and how to create a Symbolic Lexicon and Visionary Talisman of your own.

This is shamanic work. Deep work. Work to help you know yourself, work to strengthen your intuition, work to build your psychic and spiritual connections. You don’t need to be an artist, and you don’t need to have any experience. I’ll guide you through every step, and teach you the foundation skills of everything you need to know.

The work of crafting your Talisman can be done in an afternoon, or over a couple of shorter sessions. But that’s not all there is to this course. I then show you how to work with the tools you create so that they bring meaning, guidance and comfort to you throughout the year.

Did you ever want to be a witch or a wizard when you were a kid? One who could cast spells and work magic?

Or perhaps you have been fascinated by The Law of Attraction, watched the movie The Secret or have used vision boards/dream boards, visualisation or positive affirmations?

Have you long been intrigued by shamans and metaphysical practitioners and wanted to do similar things but don’t know how?

Or maybe you have always liked to work with goal-setting and being accountable to a project goal or plan?

Creating a Visionary Talisman works a little like all of the things I’ve just mentioned. 

Your Talisman radiates the energy of your Guiding Card into the world in a way that is personally attuned to you!

It is a powerful, personal energetic tool which you infuse with positive energy and intention – adding symbols that will magnetise you to certain situations, emotional strengths, energetic qualities and opportunities.

Think of it as both a beacon that radiates energy into the world and a magnet that will draw ideas, inspiration and energies to you, amplify helpful qualities within you and align you with those energies and qualities.

The course has 8 lessons, all available online, so that you can work at your own pace. You’ll also have lifetime access to the course materials.

I want as many of you as possible to experience this work, so we’ve decided to offer this course at an introductory low price of $57AUD. Normally the price would be $77 to $97AUD and it will go back up to that again soon. If you’re already a paid member of my YOM community this course is FREE for you. (Want to join us as a member?

Need Help to Grow Your Heart-Centered Business or Business Idea?

“To be successful, you have to have your heart in your business, and your business in your heart.” ~ Thomas Watson, Sr

 

The world is changing. There is a quiet revolution going on in corporations, in the business world, and in smaller businesses. That revolution is the emergence of soul-centered entrepreneurs who understand that to be successful in business is about more than just making money.

Soul-centred entrepreneurs value relationships, old-fashioned values, and they love what they are doing. They have a dream or a passion and they want to be successful – but in a way where their success is based on living true to a vision and on the success of their customers or clients, without the old models of exploitation or greed. Their intuition is engaged. They are in flow with their higher self and a greater guidance. For soul-centered entrepreneurs their business is always more than just a job; it’s an extension of themselves in some way. And a way to change the world.

I love business, and I love being able to make money doing something I love. I’d like to help you to do that too.

Because it’s not enough just to have a passion or a brilliant idea that sets you on fire. It’s not enough just to launch yourself out into the world. You need strategies and a plan. You need to actually be able to make money, and to leverage your time so that you don’t burn out. You need to be sustainable, and to grow your business in sustainable ways. You need to be able to connect with your audience in real and authentic ways.

I know how to do that.

I run a successful six-figure business, mostly in my pyjamas and from home. And we’re on track to get to seven figures.

I also do it MY way. Not the way that many conventional business coaches and gurus would have you work. (Want to read more about how my style conflicts with some of these ‘gurus’? Click here)

Brisbane Workshop – Sunday 27 November 2016

Did you know that one of my superpowers is business? If  you have a business that you would like to launch or grow in 2017, this might be the workshop for you.

In the morning we’ll be looking at defining your product or service, and your target audience. We’ll also look at how to work with your Guides and intuition to really align your business with your natural talents and skills. We’ll examine the practicalities of connecting with your tribe or audience, and how that can look. We’ll learn how to use spiritual energies as well as management skills to set your intention and put your dreams in motion. We’ll look at what business model might suit you best.

In the afternoon we’re going to have a ’round table’ where we workshop your biggest problem or idea around your business. I will give EVERY participant attention and advice, so we are keeping these numbers small. You’ll also need to fill out a small survey before the workshop so that I can do some preparation for each of you before the workshop and make my material relevant to your particular needs.

Workshop includes lunch and worksheets, plus Nicole’s personal preparation session for each of you in the days before the course begins.

I still have a few spaces left, but I don’t expect them to last long.

If you are a couple or a team of two friends/family etc working on the same business, I also invite you to come as two-for-the-price-of-one so that both of you are active in contributing ideas and vision to grow your business in 2017.

Cost: $550  – Please RSVP to Dana at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com as soon as possible

 

Online One-Day Workshop Sunday December 11

I will also be making this event available as an online One-Day Workshop on Sunday December 11. There will be activities to do online in your own time leading up to the Workshop Day, and then we will have a series of live-webinars, interspersed with time for you to complete activities.

Cost: $550  – Please RSVP to Dana at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com as soon as possible

 

Business Mentoring Group for 2017

I’m putting together a small online business mentoring group for soul-centered entrepreneurs in 2017. We’ll have a fortnightly mentoring call as well as a monthly webinar and our own chat space and email access to Nicole.  Yes, we will be using intuition and psychic skills as well as conventional business skills and strategies.

The purpose of this working group is to provide ongoing support as you grow your own intuitive and business skills, and to grow an existing business or launch your business idea.

Please contact Dana at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com and ask to be placed on our list for when program details are finalised in the next week or so. We’ll then forward all information to you.

Saturday 26 November – Morning Workshop 10am to 12pm

Make Your Own Talisman and Healing Beads – A Talisman is a small spiritual object which has been made with love and infused with specific energies to help attract or achieve a certain outcome. I was taught variously how to make Talismans by one of my Aboriginal Aunties, by a Native American Medicine Woman and also by a friend’s grandmother, who came from a long line of traditional healers in her culture (which is also the culture of my own ancestors).

In this workshop I will show you how to make a Talisman so that it is infused with energy, purpose and intent. I will show you how to ‘sing’ your beads into harmony with an energy or outcome.

Talisman making is a sacred act of focus and devotion for yourself or someone you care about. There will be many materials for you to choose from, but I also encourage you to bring something of your own – such as a charm, small image, feather, crystal or shell, if it has a special significance.

Healing Beads are beads that can be held or worn and which hold energies specific to your well-being. They can be used to focus on any issue or area of health and well-being for yourself or a loved one.

You will make and take home a hand-crafted Talisman and a set of Healing Beads. All materials and information will be provided. Morning tea will also be served. Suitable for beginners and advanced practitioners. This workshop is open to adults and children aged 15 and up.

Cost: $120  – Please RSVP to Dana at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com

Saturday 26 November – Afternoon Workshop 1pm to 4pm

Make Your Own Medicine Bag and Learn Foundation Spiritual Practices – A Medicine Bag is a bag which contains personal items that focus your attention on your spiritual and metaphysical development. When we make or embellish our own Medicine Bag we infuse it with energy, purpose and ritual. It creates a powerful intention that helps to support and grow our spiritual practice. This is all about practical mysticism!

I have my own Medicine Bag that comes everywhere with me, and that enables me to create a spiritual and sacred space where ever I might be, on any corner of the planet.

In this workshop you will embellish your own Medicine Bag (the bag is already made but you will be restyling it to suit your energies), according to age-old mystical traditions. I will also cover the practices and tools that can help you to develop a regular spiritual practice and strengthen your intuitive and psychic ability. We will also look at the fundamentals of working with crystals, connecting with your 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 create and take home your own Medicine Bag. You will be given a substantial range of tools and materials to go into your Medicine Bag to create a strong foundation practice for your ongoing psychic and metaphysical development. Afternoon tea will also be served. Suitable for beginners and advanced practitioners. This workshop is open to adults and children aged 15 and up.

Cost: $240  – Please RSVP to Dana at nicolecodyinfo@gmail.com 

2015-07-25-17-30-00

Note: If you choose to attend both Saturday workshops, total cost will be discounted to $320.

 

Win a Magical Talisman Just For You!

“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

Last week I shared the story of how I brought my friend Carly’s magical Writing Talisman into being. A Talisman is a small spiritual object which has been created with love and infused with specific energies to help attract or achieve a certain outcome.

Made by my own hands from feathers found at my farm, and with the energies of Crow and Magpie, I crafted this Talisman to help Carly with her writing – so that she might be encouraged to share her personal story. The Talisman was an entreatment to go deeper, to be brave in sharing truth, at gifting this story in a way that might illuminate the way for others. I supported the energy of the feathers with banded red and black agate, bone, marble, black tourmaline, rosewood and a few chakra stones that support communication and flow of words.

I also had two other feathers, one from a Green Catbird and one from a Black Cockatoo. I knew that from them I would craft a second Talisman which I would give away to one of you, my dear readers.

But it didn’t feel complete until Madam Crow gifted me a third feather.

cockatoo, crow, catbird feather

Now I shall shape these three beautiful feathers into something specific to you. I won’t actually finish my Talisman until I have chosen a winner. Then I will tune in to you and select the stones, beads and other embellishments that will hold and enhance the spiritual energies that I place into this Talisman, ready to gift those energies to you. It will be custom-made to your own energies and needs.

Do you think this Talisman might be for you?

If so, then enter your name in the comments section below.

And every time you share this post on facebook, instagram or twitter with the hashtag #NicoleCodyTalisman I’ll give you an extra entry into the competition.

I will draw the Winner on Saturday November 5th at 8pm Brisbane Australia time, and announce the winner here on the blog on November 7, 2016.

Talisman beginnings

Want to learn how to make a Talisman for yourself or someone you love? Come join me at my Talisman making workshop on Saturday November 26th, 2016, in Brisbane, Australia.
