October Create Your Sacred Space Workshops

As someone who has a highly sensitive nervous system, I have spent a lot of time dealing with environments that were uncomfortable for me.  I believed that I had to adapt myself to whatever the energetic space was like and often that wasn’t very easy. Sometimes, my health suffered as a result. I have learned, though, that we are not at the mercy of our environment. We are able to work with energy concepts and different tools to set up our personal energy system and adjust the energy set up in the places we are in to create a more harmonious experience. I am excited to teach these very necessary and important skills in the Create Your Sacred Space Workshops coming up in October!

About the Arizona Workshop 10/21 (1- 4 PM Peoria, AZ)

 The workshop in AZ will also include guidance using Feng Shui concepts from my co-teacher, Barb Hribar (Life Coach, Feng Shui Consultant and Spiritual Teacher).  Otherwise, the workshops in the two states will be the same.  If you are interested in the AZ workshop, please use the contact form below and I will send you the full details.

Ascension Symptoms Relief Call – Thursday 2/26

Zippy Sleeping

Animals and children are feeling the effects too! Here is my puppy Zippy catching up on some sleep.

Anyone else feeling exhausted from all these energetic shifts and changes?  I knew we were going to be processing some big stuff with the ascension experience, but I guess I was hoping it would be a little easier on the physical side of things!

This morning (which actually felt like the middle of the night since it was 3 AM!), my Spiritual Support Team walked me through a process to help cleanse my system and bring in supportive energy to restore some balance.  It really brought some relief, so I feel called to share the technique with all of you!  Details are below if this resonates…

Ascension Symptoms Relief Call 

When?  Thursday 2/26 at 6:30 PM EST (approximately one hour)

Where?  Conference Call Line (I’ll send you the number when you register).  This call will be recorded and the downloadable link will be shared for those who register but are unable to join the call live.

What to Expect?  I’m going to lead you through the guided meditation/healing I experienced last night.  We will be working with the Angels, Spirit Guides, and Mother Earth to cleanse, balance, and infuse fresh energy into every system in our beings.  After the healing meditation, I’ll do some mini-readings for those on the call live.

Love Exchange?  $10/person

Crystal Ally Cards

The Crystal Ally Cards by Naisha Ashian provide guidance using crystal energies to empower.  I’ll be using this book this month for the special Pyramid Crystal Ally readings to help give you deeper insight into a concern you are facing.  See below for this month’s special offers.

Wisdom of Avalon Cards

The Wisdom of Avalon Oracle Cards by Colette Baron-Reid

 Here are the cards that fell out for this month:

The Serpent (Knowledge/Healing):  “Card Meaning: The Serpent’s message is one of healing and of gaining knowledge.  Whatever situation you’re in right now is meant for this purpose.  The serpent also reminds you that knowledge is important.  Perhaps it’s time for you to read a book or take  class in order to gain more understanding of your inquiry, or you may need to ask questions of others who “know” and can help you.  Ask the Serpent and you will be guided to the right answer easily and effortlessly.  The Serpent heralds success if you follow his signal.  The Serpent also lets you know that you may be suffering because there are aspects of yourself that are wounded and still need tending.  Now is the time for this.  Perhaps you need to rest, meditate, and allow the knowledge to come to consciousness. Or maybe you just need to sleep more.  Another aspect of Serpent energy is that each time you experience a healing or learn new things, you may need to shed your skin and adopt a new one.  But don’t worry – the Serpent says that it’s a necessary and beautiful thing.” 

The Stag (Pride/Leadership): “When the Stag appears on your path, he tells you to take pride in all that you do.  Be the leader and hold your head high, and others will follow by your example.  Ask yourself these questions:  “Am I following my highest path?”  “Am I acting in integrity and doing the best I can?”  or “Am I held back by the kind of pride that cuts me off from life through arrogance, or in reverse, low self-esteem?”  The Stag asks you to be a leader, be proactive (with the highest intentions), and to always ask, “What is the highest good for all?”  Arrogance and its reverse are both places of alienation and ways to avoid responsibility and accountability.  The Stag leads you out of both difficult places into the kind of pride that reminds you that you’re always in service to the God/Goddess in every step you take.  You may already be there, in which case, you should be proud and happy.  Look how far you’ve come!  Rejoice, for the Stag always leads you to a higher place with a sure and steady footing.”

Morning Musing – Mosquito Wisdom

mosquitoI believe nothing is random, so this morning’s musing is based on an actual event rather than an intuitive vision.  I hope you find it helpful today or whatever day you come upon it.  Nice to know that mosquitos are good for something huh? 

The Event…

It was very late and I was trying to fall asleep.  I would close my eyes and begin to drift off, only to be awakened by the sound of a mosquito buzzing in my ear.  I would smack where the sound was coming from hoping to catch it unaware, only to have the sound begin again a few moments later.  I turned on the light and looked around.  No mosquito.  I stayed very still and waited to see if it would appear. No mosquito.  Was I dreaming it?  I turned off the light and attempted sleep again.  Just as I was drifting off, the loud insistent buzzing began again!  I slapped at the sound with no result.  Frustrated, I turned on the lights.  I asked the Angels to help me, starting to wonder if I had a ghost mosquito visiting or if I was developing an ear problem.  Finally, frustrated, I reached for my iPad on the floor, figuring I might as well do some writing since I clearly wasn’t going to be sleeping.  And there it was!  I caught it, ending the mosquito torture for the night.


If nothing is random, then why had the mosquito found its way into my room that night?  I looked it up in my Animal-Speak Pocket Guide (Ted Andrews) and found that the keynote for mosquito is self-worth.  It mentions protecting myself from attacks on my self-worth.  As I pondered this, I realized that I had been feeling insecure.  Circumstances had led to me getting overloaded and worn down which tends to lead to feeling less than stellar about myself.  So how could I protect myself from this?  I thought of what had just happened.  Using my own hands hadn’t worked.  Turning on the light hadn’t worked.  It was only when I asked the Angels to help me that the situation was resolved.

Intention and Prayer…

Angels, I call to you now.  Help me to love myself and have the highest value on who I am and what I am becoming.  Help me to be free of attacks by my ego or whatever is prompting my feelings of being unloved.  Heal me, love me, inspire me, and guide me.  I trust you and thank you for your support.  I wait for your Divine guidance to find my way home to myself.  

Have a beautiful mosquito-free day!

Intuitive Life Coaching:


An Intuitive Message for the Week!

Each week, I ask for an intuitive message for the members of my Sanctuary Soul Friends Community.  In celebration of June’s Abundance theme, I thought I’d share it with you as well!  The way I do this is to ask for an image that is a metaphor about the week ahead.  Sometimes I also hear some guidance connected to the image.  The best way to work with the message is to read the image and than see what connections come to mind for you.  I’ve shared my interpretation as well.  I hope you find it helpful and that you have a wonderful week!

The metaphor…

I see an Angel’s wing, bright sunshine, and water.  The wing has water droplets dripping off of it that are so filled with sunlight that it seems to be sunshine dripping off the Angel’s wing. 

I’m hearing, “This week will be filled with wonder.  Allow the light to fill your heart and to clear off your Angelic vision.  See what cannot be seen.”

My input…

Jennifer Hoffman mentioned that even stronger energies will be moving in during this month.  I’ve been receiving a lot of guidance about how things work as these new energies move into our world.  Before, I’d set a goal and then take a lot of steps to get there.  This method usually involved a lot of hard work and stress.  Now, I’m finding that the way that works best to manifest is to set a clear intention, invoke Divine support, and make a commitment to myself to allow this to enter my experience.  I’ve been using this method a lot (and we’ll be working with it tonight on the Empowerment Call).  Every time I’ve used it, it has worked!

 The image that came through today reminds me of this new approach.  I was shown a triangle to use as a symbol for this technique.  The top of the triangle is the Angel wings which speak of our connection with our soul.  The right side of the triangle is represented by the sunlight which is about our power and yang/male energies.  The left side of the triangle is the water which symbolizes working with feminine/yin energies and letting things flow.  To me, the image is about complete balance.  Spirit, Mind, Heart working in harmony.  When we bring all three into agreement, miracles occur!

 I’ve been doing this myself by setting a daily intention along with setting more long-term intentions.  What type of day do you wish to experience?  Set a clear intention for this, then invoke all the love and Divine support you can receive to manifest it with ease.  Finally, promise yourself that you will experience the day you seek because you deserve it.  Ask the highest Divine source to make it so and so it shall be!

If you’d like to practice using this method by setting an abundance goal for the month, join me on tonight’s empowerment call. Here is the description:

6/12/2012 at 7PM- 8PM E.S.T., Abundance Empowerment Call with Nancy Nicholas:  I will guide you through a meditation where you will connect with your own Spiritual Support Team of Angels, Guides, and Archangels to spiritually and energetically create abundance in the focus area you choose (health, romance, financial, career fulfillment, etc).  I’ll also be providing intuitive insights for volunteers and sharing a technique you can use for manifesting with ease!  The call will be recorded for those who aren’t able to make it.

You can join the call as a guest this month (and receive the link to the recording if you can’t make it tonight).  Just send me an email if you’d like to join in (

Have a great day!


Developing Your Intuition

I often get asked how to develop intuition and be able to communicate with Spirit Guides and Angels.  The answer is both simple and complicated.  First, I’d like to clarify my viewpoint on intuition.  I feel we all have the ability to communicate with our higher self and the Divine beings that are here to support us.   I’ve found that most people actually do communicate with their Spiritual Support Team of Angels and Guides all the time, whether they realize it or not.  When we decide to do this more consciously, we are essentially beginning a spiritual journey that will empower us to live our life purpose and follow our soul.  This process helps us to clear out the fears and false beliefs that limit our ability to see things from a spiritual perspective.  It isn’t something that typically happens overnight (though anything is possible!).  The good news is that you can start consciously invoking Divine support and guidance with the process right now!

You can start by using some simple tools (see suggestions at the end of the post) and/or try the meditation included below…

Communicating with Your Spiritual Support Team Guided Meditation

1.  Find a place to relax where you won’t be disturbed for 10-20 minutes.

2.  Take a deep breath, inhaling through the nose and out through the mouth.  Repeat this two more times.

3.  Set a clear intention.  I use a prayer to begin, so that I make it clear what I am asking.  This prayer should include the following elements:

  • Ask to be grounded and centered in your own system
  • Ask to be a clear channel to the highest Divine source (insert whatever Divine being you believe in such as Jesus, God, Buddha, your highest self, the Angels etc)
  • Ask that all communication be filtered through the highest Divine source throughout the meditation (this will prevent you from having spiritual contact that comes through in a way that is not highest and best for you)
  • Ask that a window of time be created and during that window that all information you receive in the form of images, thoughts, sounds, and feelings will be Divinely inspired
  • Ask that you receive whatever healing and wisdom is needed for your highest and best good
  • Ask the highest Divine source to keep the communication open and clear until the meditation is complete

4.   Imagine a place to meet with your Spirit guides that you will visit every time you do this mediation.  Pick somewhere that feels comforting.  I like using nature images.  Begin your journey by following a simple path.  You will use the same path and see the same landmarks every time you visit.  Let yourself be open to imagining with all your senses!  What does the air feel like?  Do you smell any particular scents in the air?  Is it sunny or cloudy?  Just let your imagination wander and make a note of what you experience.

5.  Imagine yourself sitting somewhere comfortable in your special spot.  Ask your Angels and Spirit Guides to help you.  Ask a simple question or request healing.  Let yourself just relax and “see” or “feel” whatever comes to mind.  I find it easiest to imagine this as listening to a story or watching a movie.  Imagination is the threshold for all Spirit communication.  Don’t worry that you are “making it up.”  What comes through will be what you need to experience, since that is the intention you set. 

6.  Conclude your mediation by thanking your Spiritual team for their guidance, love and continued support.

7.  Walk back up the path.  Take a deep breath and return your attention to your present environment.

Often, messages come in the form of images, sounds, words, or feelings.  It helps to have some tools to use to interpret the message.  There are many wonderful sources to use!  Anything book can be used, but the more thorough the resource, the easier it is to interpret the message.

Some of my favorites are:

Ted Andrews’ books (Nature-Speak, Animal-Speak, Animal-Wise)

Doreen Virtue’s oracle cards

Soul Coaching Cards by Denise Linn

The Crystal Bible by Judy Hall

You can check out all my favorite resources at the following link:  SPIRITUAL TOOLS

Would you like some help developing your intuition?

Here are a few options (beyond the Empowerment Readings and Lightworker Mentoring Programs available on my website)…

Soul Friends’ Empowerment Call:  Each month, I lead an empowerment call to teach and support my Soul Friends through the process of developing their intuition.  During the call, I set the intention through a prayer for all those participating and then lead them through a Divinely Guided Meditation to bring whatever wisdom and healing is needed.  At the end, I help interpret what came through and provide additional messages.  May’s call is on 5/6 at 7PM EST.  The call is always recorded, so you can listen to it at your convenience if you aren’t able to make it at that time.

Soul Friends’ Intuition and Paranormal Experiences Email Club:  In this club, members share about their experiences using intuition and other spiritual experiences.  We recently started doing some intuitive experiments where we get simple messages for each other.  It is a lot of fun!


Both of the activities above are free for those who are a part of my Soul Friends’ Community.  I started this community to have a way to stay in touch with my wonderful clients more regularly and to give them a chance to get to know others with similar interests.  I absolutely love this group of people!  Membership benefits include weekly Divinely Guided Messages, monthly calls, discounts on my services, email discussion clubs, and more.   Membership is $5/month.  You can join and learn more at this link:  Nancy’s Soul Friends’ Community

Have an amazing day!


Doreen Virtue and Personal Power

I had an amazing day yesterday!  I went to the Journey Expo in Kirtland, Ohio and attended a talk by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D.  I actually got to meet her!  For those of you unfamiliar with Doreen, she is a bestselling author who publishes through Hay House.  She works with the Angelic Realm and is the author of all my favorite card decks (Healing with the Angels, Archangels, Ascended Masters, Angel Therapy, etc.).  You can find them at this link:  Amazon Store

I just thought I’d share a few key points she shared during her presentation in the hopes that you find them as helpful as I did!

1.  Your Divine Reflection:  Remember how you are!  Love yourself!  Appreciate everything about you and know that each part of you is perfect for your life mission (and yes, that includes the parts of you that drive you crazy!).

2.  Do you love me?:  Ask everything you put in and on your body that question before inviting it in!  She reminded everyone that lotion goes into the body through the pores, so it counts too.

3.  Simplify Your Life:  Let go of the things that are weighing you down!  We are moving into an age of cooperation, love, and joy.  Relax and go with the flow!

4.  Balance giving with receiving:  Be sure to take time to relax and recharge.  Those who are sensitive (and if you are reading this you are!) will find their sensitivity increasing.  Take time to clear off lower vibrating energies (ask Archangel Michael for help with this) and be kind to yourself.  As she said, even Jesus had to head to the woods for three days alone!

5.  Clear Your Mind, Focus on Divine Life Purpose:  Watch what you feed your mind so that you don’t get caught in negativity.  She showed some slides from her book, Angel Words, which showed that negative words have very low energy and are toxic to the body.  Choose life affirming, positive, loving words to talk about yourself and your life.  Do your life work now by doing it part-time or incorporating it into the work you are already doing.  Don’t wait!


If you’d like some additional tips to help you follow Doreen’s advice, check out my Discover Your Personal Power Meditation that was just added to my store (meditation section).  This Divinely guided meditation will help you connect with your own intuitive gifts while taking you through a process to help you let go of limiting thoughts and feelings.   You can learn more and purchase at this link:  STORE

Blessings to everyone!
