May 2017 Monthly Reading and News

News from Nancy

I am in Ohio for the month of May! My coaching partner, Ryan O’Toole, and I had a great time in western North Carolina and South Carolina for the month of April. We spent a lot of the time near Saluda, NC where we were staying in a beautiful cabin up in the mountains. We met a lot of wonderful people and enjoyed all the beauty of the area. We also participated in an edible plants class with the Earth School while we were down there and have been enjoying being able to collect our own wild greens!

Financial Abundance Class – Wednesday 3/25

December Events and News 2014

starHappy December!

I hope you are all enjoying the end of this quite eventful year.  We have gone through a lot of changes and we are still getting opportunities to squeeze out any last lingering places where we are holding on to old patterns. Not always the most fun, but isn’t it exciting when you realize that you aren’t falling into the old stories anymore?

Upcoming Events and Special Offers

  • Register by 12/19/2014:  Winter Solstice/New Moon Empowerment Circle Recorded Reading: The Winter Solstice is the shortest day of the year here in North America (I ought to know as it is often on my birthday – though not this year!).  The turning of the seasons is a chance to really embrace with gratitude the gifts of the prior year and celebrate the gradual turn back to days of longer sun and new beginnings.  This year, the winter solstice also falls on the New Moon – making this a great opportunity to really release the old and anchor your path into a new intention.  For this recorded reading, we will be looking at the overall theme of anchoring in the new for 2015, providing personal messages for those who register with the intention that all messages will have gifts for everyone listening.  Every time I do these recordings, a clear theme develops and it is fascinating to see Divine synchronicity at work!  These recordings are 30-60 minutes long depending on the number of participants.  The readings are done anonymously (I’ll send you a private email with the MP3 download link and information about the number of your personal reading).   Love exchange:  $22; You can register here: Empowerment Circle Reading
  • Special Offer for December:  Empowerment Crystal Readings – 20% off:  These readings provided an opportunity to interact with the Spirit Guide or Angel connected with your empowerment crystal (purchased separately at a discounted price of $18).  These can also be purchased as gift certificates.  Learn more and purchase here:  Empowerment Crystals

December Tips

As I was sharing with my community members today, the infuenza bug has found my house!  My husband is recuperating, but I thought it might be a good idea to share a few resources to keep us all healthy!

  • 5 Minute Energy Routine – Donna Eden:  A great way to keep your energy flowing and your immune system strong!
  • Bodytalk Systems Cortices Excercise:  I took a class on Bodytalk a couple of years ago and still use the routine I learned every day.  Last night, when I woke up feeling a little funky, I did it two times in a row.  It really seems to help!  You can learn one of the basic exercises here and it can be used over and over until you feel better:  Cortices
  • Oil of Oregano:  My Bodytalk Practitioner (Kris Cirocco if you are in Northeast Ohio!) recommended using a drop of Oil of Oregano on my toothbrush to fight off viruses and other germs.  I do this every day – but just be sure to put the toothpaste over the oil drop as Oregano oil is pretty spicy!

Community Membership

My Crossroads Coaching Community empowerment call for December is on 12/14/2014 where I’ll be sharing about a new technique working with the “Heart Song” which is what I’ve been guided to call the song of the Universe.   Connecting to this “song” and then connecting to those we are in relationships with is a great way to get the joy energy flowing and move into a more peaceful frequency!  I also do oracle readings in the last half of the call.  Membership is only $5/month and includes all the benefits below.  If you are interested in joining, you can do so at this link:  Membership

Wishing you all a wonderful Holiday Season!
Much love,


Morning Musings: Guidance for the day ahead!

About Morning Musings…I asked for some intuitive guidance for today (or whatever day you come upon this).  I find it helpful to use the metaphor I’m shown to make the most of my day.  I hope you find it helpful too!  Here it is…

blue butterflyThe Vision…

I see a small blue butterfly flying.  A hornet buzzes around it.  The butterfly is unconcerned.  The flapping wings prevent the hornet from getting too close.  With no access, it eventually gives up and flies away.


When I feel the butterfly, there is a sense of being joyful, relaxed and content.  It is in no hurry and seems to be enjoying the gentle stroke of its wings, the feel of the light breeze, and all the beauty around it.  The hornet is frustrated.  It feels agitated that it is unable to get to the butterfly’s body to sting it.  Every time it sees an opening, the wings move and the opening closes.  It also seems frustrated that the butterfly is able to ignore its presence.  As I consider this metaphor, I believe the message is to be like the butterfly today.  Really focus on being a creature that is content in its own being and who is able to enjoy the beauty the day offers.  Knowing it is safe from the hornet’s stinger allows it to be unafraid. Eventually, that which agitates or threatens our serenity will disappear.


Today, I will remember I have wings and that I am safe.  I will trust that I will be protected from anything that would cause me pain.  I will focus on all the peace and beauty around me, relaxed and content.

I pray it is so, and so it is…

Have a wonderful day!


5/25/2013 Morning Musing: Guidance for Your Day!

About Morning Musings…I asked for some intuitive guidance for today (or whatever day you come upon this).  I find it helpful to use the metaphor I’m shown to make the most of my day.  I hope you find it helpful too!  Here it is…



I see a stream with cool, crystal-clear water.  It is moving quickly and feels almost joyful.  I see myself scooping up the water and drinking it.  It is crisp and invigorating.  I see a deer with antlers on the opposite bank.  Its fur is beginning to thicken.  It feels like a crisp fall day. It watches me as if waiting for me to come to it.  I cross the river and touch its neck. The fur is coarse and brittle and I can feel the warmth of the animal’s body on my cold fingers.  It turns and I feel it wishes me to follow.  We head through the fall woods.  I see a hawk flying above us, as if it is leading the way.  Eventually, we come to a clearing with a small cabin.  Smoke is coming from the chimney.  The deer leads me to the door.  A Spirit Guide steps out and smiles at me.  I hear, “Welcome home.”


How lovely this image is!  It feels so fresh and alive!  Coming home with the deer (which represents compassion, gentleness and new adventures) with a hawk (spiritual messenger and guide) leading the way, gives this a sense of returning from a long trip with close friends.  The fall reference makes me think of a time of harvest and celebration.  It also feels like a time to return to one’s center and recharge.  The Spirit Guide waiting feels like my closest companion and friend.  The fire, the nearby fresh and invigorating water source, all suggest a chance to recharge and refresh our spirits after a long  journey.


Today, I intend to recharge my soul. I will drink deeply of all the beauty. I will rest in my own center, knowing I am surrounded by friends.  Today, I will allow myself to soak up the joy of being at home, knowing I deserve this rest and respite from my travels.  Today, I will soak in the joy of simple pleasures.

I pray it is so, and so it is…

Wishing you all a day filled with joy!


Make Transitions Easy (Even Back to School!)

The school where I taught for the last 18 years starts up again next week.  Such a mix of emotions this brings for me!  School, after all, has been part of my life for 37 years if I include my own time as a student.  There is a certain conditioning that happens after that many years of following the rhythm of school life.  I feel like an explorer about to set off into uncharted waters.  It is both thrilling and a little scary.  What does the world look like without the ever-present routine of school? 

Of course, as a highly sensitive person (someone with a more sensitive nervous system), school was often a difficult environment.  The noise, inability to be alone, and lots of different energy sources can be very challenging for those of us who are HSP’s or those who are more introverted in nature.

For those returning to the school routine either as a teacher, student, or parent, I asked for some Divine advice to make the transition easy.  Parents can do this practice for their child, if they aren’t able to do it themselves.  These tools can also be used for anyone going into a new environment (or even into a familiar one) to help you enjoy your day.

Here are the tips…

Send the Angels First 

Whenever we are entering a new space, it is a good practice to invoke Divine Support to clear the space for us.  A simple prayer to use is, “I invoke my Angels and ask them to clear and cleanse the (insert name of space where you are going) and transform and transmute any chaotic or disruptive energies into harmonious vibrations.”  This will help lighten and adjust the energy, so that it is comfortable.

Next, ask the Angels to set up the energy of the space you are going to in the highest and best way to be compatible with your system.  Ask them to set up your energy system in the best way, so you can be comfortable and at ease.  Finally, give your Spiritual Team permission to make whatever adjustments are needed throughout the day to allow you to stay safe and comfortable energetically all day.

Set a Clear Intention for the Day

What do you want to experience today?  Imagine a triangle.  At the top of the triangle is what you want to experience.  For example you might say, “I want to feel comfortable, relaxed, and peaceful all day long. I want to love my day!”  Then invoke Divine support to make it manifest with ease and promise yourself that you will allow yourself to have an amazing day!  I created an audio recording to walk you through this process.  It’s free and available here:  Quick Support-No Fight or Flight!

 Pay Attention to your Breath

When we are nervous it is easy to start breathing shallowly.  Pay attention to your breathing and remind yourself to take deep breaths with long exhales.  If we have a longer exhale, then inhale, the body gets the message that we are relaxed.  You can also imagine breathing in love (really feel it fill every cell with love energy) and then breathe love back out to the world.

Wishing you a joyous return to school (or wherever the road takes you!)!

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!


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!



Breathe Easier-Tips for Coping with Allergies

250 year old oak tree at Ash Lawn-Highland in VA

I’ve found that there is nothing that makes me feel as powerless as a health issue. This spring, I seem to have developed some type of allergy and suddenly my favorite time of year is no longer so wonderful. Being outside and watching things bloom, feeling the warming sun, and enjoying the fresh air are things I enjoy more than any other. Yet this year, all I want to do is climb into bed with a good book and stay there until this goes away.

I know many people are suffering from allergies this year as the pollen and mold count are significantly higher than they have been in years. So how can we empower ourselves during times like this?

Well, I figured it was a good idea to get some Divine input on this and also to share some products that I’ve found very helpful. I hope they help you too! Hang in there…this too shall pass…

Raise your vibration. I’ve found that when I’m doing an empowerment reading, my allergy discomfort decreases. To raise your vibration, take a few moments to breathe deeply (at least as deeply as you can) and imagine yourself somewhere peaceful. The idea is to convince your body that you are in an environment that feels peaceful, healing, and delightful. Let yourself float in the ocean, climb a mountain, shop in a unique boutique, or stretch out on a warm rock in the middle of a river. As you sink into this experience, soak up the energetic healing that it brings.

Practice relaxation techniques. For those of you who are on my mailing list, you know I’m a HUGE fan of yoga mudras. I’ve used them to improve my health and mental well-being on many occasions. I love the books by Sabrina Mesko. Set the intention that you are asking for Divine healing and then flip to a mudra. Try another one if your time allows. These three minute yoga postures for the hands are amazingly healing and a great way to energetically combat that which ails you.

Ask for Divine support. Have you asked your Angels to make you feel better? Seems like a simple step, but I have to admit I don’t always remember it right away myself. So right now, try it. What can it hurt? Ask your Angels and spiritual helpers to bring Divine healing and freedom from discomfort. Ask them to guide you to the foods, medicines, or experiences that will free you from that which is causing you pain. Give it a try!

Accept what can’t be changed. I hate this one! I never find it easy to accept that sometimes you just don’t feel well (emotionally or physically). I’m always trying to figure out what is going on, why, and what I can do to fix it. One of the messages I received about my own physical struggles was to accept that it is a temporary experience brought on by changes occurring in my own system and in the world at large, which must occur at this time. Sometimes, life here on Earth brings suffering. I wish it wasn’t so, but I’m learning that when I can accept that suffering will give way to joy again soon, I suffer a lot less!

Listen to your body. I’m also getting a strong message to pay attention when you go to eat or drink. My inner child wants sweets and bread type products when I don’t feel well, but my body knows these things aren’t helping the situation right now. Lots of liquids, fruits and vegetables are better than white flour, sugar, and dairy products. Listen to what your system says instead of letting the part of you that wants to be comforted be completely in charge. That said it is also okay to give yourself a treat or two. After all, it is no fun not feeling well!

Forgive. If you are like me you may find yourself feeling very angry at yourself. After all, if all that Law of Attraction stuff is right, didn’t we just bring this misery on ourselves? I have been told intuitively again and again that it isn’t that simple. Each experience that we have here is the experience we need in that moment. That doesn’t mean that each experience is one we “want” to be having…it just means that it is what it is. Right now, today, my head hurts and my glands are swollen and I don’t like it. Right now, I accept that for some reason that I don’t understand, that is just how it has to be.

For those of you looking for some new products to try that might make you feel better, here is a few that I’m finding helpful:

Olbas Lozenges (Black Currant): Seriously considering investing in this company. These drops are very strong, but they clear my sinuses like nothing else. They also have Vitamin C and Eucalyptus to help you heal. They are good for coughs, sore throats, and sinus issues.

Olbas Inhaler: The package says “POWER to Breathe™” and they aren’t kidding! It does provide instant relief for colds, allergies, low humidity and hay fever. It is non habit forming and doesn’t cause drowsiness. Again, I love this product.

Ginger Tea: I found a recipe for this in a book called Kitchen Pharmacy. Essentially, you boil water and add a pinch of ginger powder, cinnamon, and cloves. Then add ½ T of lemon juice and honey (to taste). Breathing in the steam helps as much as drinking it!

Breathe Again Roll On: This product is from Young Living Essential Oil. I’ve used other products from them and found them to be very effective. I just ordered this for myself because I have another one of their roll on products that I really love. Hopefully, this will be as good as that is!

Emergen C Immune Support and Airborne: Both of these products are great at helping you boost your immune system which helps minimize the effects of allergies.

Energy/Body Work:  Intuitive healing through energy or body work can really help any ailment.  I had a wonderful Jin Shin Jyutsu session with Donna Tkachyk and Susan Barack yesterday that really helped my sinuses!  I also had a great Reiki/Massage with Debbie Kacic the other day which brought relief.  Check out the practitioners at Sanctuary at the Crossroads (my empowerment center) if you’d like to try this approach (or give me a call!).  They are all excellent!

Cave Therapy: Try visiting a cave!   The air quality and moisture in the air is wonderful for the sinuses!  Here’s a picture from my trip to Luray Caverns (Luray, VA) over Easter.  The bottom is a reflection of the ceiling.

Dream Lake in Luray Caverns

I hope these tips help you breathe easier!

Blessings to you and yours!

Nancy Nicholas, Life Coach/Intuitive Healer/Medium

What are your goals for 2008? Many of us set new goals to help us start the New Year off right. This year, why not set goals that also are in line with your Divine Purpose? Each of us have a “spiritual support team” (angels and guides) available to help us as we grow through our lifetime. Below are a few simple tips to help you get some “Divine Direction” for your life path this year:
Slow Down: It is impossible to hear Divine Guidance when you are rushing around. Set aside 15 minutes each day to be still and listen to your own inner voice.
Meditate: This doesn’t have to be a big deal. Try doing a yoga mudra or just listening to quiet music while breathing deeply. Focus on a slow, rhymic breathing pattern such as in 4, hold 4, out 6, hold 4.
Affirm: “I hear Divine Guidance easily and effortlessly.”
Ask: Ask for input on your goals this year. Ask your guides and angels to clearly guide you, tell them your hopes, fears and things you would like help with. They are listening!
Pick a Tool: In my experience, spiritual guidance can come in almost any form you suggest. One easy method is to pick out a book and then ask your “team” for guidance. Randomly flip to a page and see what it says. For other spiritual tools you can use, click HERE to check out my favorites.
Schedule an Intuitive Reading: I offer intuitive readings to offer Divine Guidance using my intuitive gifts which will help you understand your life from a spiritual perspective. It is a gentle, and empowering experience (not predictive in nature). To learn more, please visit my spiritual coaching page by clicking HERE.
