Weaving Peace Workshop – Fall 2018

ARE YOU READY FOR MORE PEACE?

Join us at Spirit Earth Coaching this fall, as we weave peace through craft and spiritual conversation! 

 

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

For this workshop, we will be sharing a simple technique to weave a soft twine basket. We will be focusing on creating a weaved basket that expresses peace, through the energies we infuse into the weaving and through the colors that are chosen for your creation. The first evening we will teach the technique and the subsequent meetings will be times to gather and work on your basket while listening and discussing The Tao of Pooh by Benjamin Hoff. This beautiful book explains the principles of Taoism (an ancient Chinese philosophy on how to live in harmony with nature and ourselves) using the characters from the beloved childhood classic, Winnie the Pooh. 

Love Exchange: $150/person for the full four session workshop (includes materials and instruction)

Crossroads Coaching LLC NOW Spirit Earth Coaching LLC

A Message from Nancy 

I am so happy to share that I have made the name change to Spirit Earth Coaching LLC! As those of you who have been with me for awhile know, Spirit Earth was the name of my second business that I had started in Colorado. For several reasons, we ended up deciding to dissolve it back in January. I was very sad to let go of the name and the concept of Spirit Earth, as it is such a good representation of the type of work I do now. Recently, I learned that I could just change my business name, so I have decided to do that! For those of you who didn’t realize my business name was Crossroads Coaching (you probably think it is Empowering LIghtworkers), that is one of the reasons it feels safe to make this shift! I started Crossroads Coaching when I was at a “Crossroads” in my life – moving from a career as an elementary teacher into doing my life’s calling as a life coach. Now, I am on a quest to live a spiritual life that is centered around living close to the Earth – thus Spirit Earth Coaching LLC is a much better fit!

What is New 

Most of the offerings are not changing, but here are some things that are new with the name change:

  • Empowerment Readings NOW Spiritual Life Coaching Sessions: I  will still be offering the same type of sessions I’ve been doing in the past under the header of Empowerment Readings. I’ve changed the name because I feel it is a better representation of the full extent of what those sessions are about, since they combine intuitive guidance with teaching and coaching. Also, this will allow other types of spiritual coaching sessions to be offered as we go along.

 

  • Domain Name: My website address will still be accessible from EmpoweringLightworkers.com but the primary name will be changing to SpiritEarthCoaching.com

 

  • Earth Living Skils: Spirit Earth Coach, Ryan O’Toole, and I will be offering more Earth Living Skills in the future. These skills combine spiritual tools with nature-focused activities. More on that soon!

 

  • Website Blog: We are going to share more about our travels on the website blog then we have been doing this last year. If you want to follow, there is a place to sign up on the website. See below to go to the website home page. The option fo follow the blog (you can do this via email) is on the right side.

 

  • Workshops/Classes On the Road: We are going to be adding a page with types of workshops and classes we offer that will be available in Ohio or in other areas by request. More on that soon!

 

  • Facebook Page: My Facebook page has been changed to Spirit Earth Coaching LLC from Nancy Nicholas- Intuitive Life Coach. You can follow me here: Facebook

Wisdom Circle – Walking the Guided Path with Author Ray Reitze – 6/19

I just wanted to share about a wonderful opportunity to connect with Author and Spiritual Teacher Ray Reitze who will be in Ohio on 6/19. Ryan and I did a two-day retreat with him at the beginning of the month that was inspirational! We had read his book   – And We Shall Cast Rainbows Upon the Land – last fall and have been quoting it ever since! It was such a gift to spend time with this wise and gentle soul and I’m so happy to get to share the opportunity with those who weren’t able to come for the weekend event. We will be there for the evening and hope you can come too! Below are the details:

Walking the Guided Path with Author/Spiritual Teacher Ray Reitze

When: Tuesday June 19, 2018 from 7 – 10 PM

Where: Seven Hills, OH

What to Expect: We will be gathering around a fire to listen to the gentle wisdom and humorous teachings shared by Elder and Spiritual Teacher Ray Reitze for this three-hour Wisdom Circle. Participants will learn about Ray’s exceptional life, what he has learned along the way, and about the gifts of living a simple, connected life in harmony with Nature. Ray will also be sharing simple meditation techniques to help you get more deeply connected to your self and to the natural and spiritual world around you.

How the Evening Will Be Structured

The event will begin with a brief introduction and then Ray will be sharing about his life and experiences. Participants will also have ample opportunities to ask questions. We will take a break midway through for refreshments and a chance to connect more informally with those who gather for the event. The second hour will provide opportunities to practice different meditation techniques, to ask questions, and explore more deeply what Ray has shared.

A Little Background About Ray

Ray has lived a rich life with many adventures along the way! He was mentored by a Micmac Native American elder as a child, went through the Vietnam War, owns and runs a Maine Canoe Guide business, and mentors and teaches those seeking to live in a simple, connected life in harmony with one’s spirit and nature. He lives in a beautiful yurt-like log home off grid in the Maine woods and has much to offer the world on how to step away from life’s dramas and get back into a no-nonsense way of living that is deeply connected and joyful.

Love Exchange: $20

May Fundraiser – Great prizes and Free Guided Meditation

I have been blessed to work with some amazing people over the years and this year is no exception. I have an amazing group of women that I would love to gift with a $100 scholarship to attend a spiritual retreat with me in Asheville, NC. I have already given them 50% off on the retreat cost, but would like to provide some additional support, as they have all gone through some significant family and financial challenges. Below is a little bit of their stories and ways you can help me reach this goal, as well as information about gifts for you too!

Prizes and Free Gift For Participants

When you make a love offering to the Crossroads Coaching Fund for this fundraiser, you will have your name entered in this month’s raffles to win some wonderful prizes (your name will be entered for every $10 love offering – so for example, if you make a $100 love offering, your name will be entered 10 times). Everyone who participates will also receive a free gift of a MP3 recorded guided meditation I created to set up your energy system for the day ahead to help you have a GREAT DAY! Read on to learn more…

Scholarship Candidates 

I wanted to share a little bit about the people who will benefit from this Fundraiser. Thank you for helping me help them!

Candidate One – This kind soul is the mother of a beautiful little boy. He was born with Down syndrome and other physical challenges that will require special care for his lifetime. His mother has been the principal caregiver for the seven years of his life and she is the most loving, wonderful mother! Along with caring for her son (including having to purée all his food, attempt to communicate with him as he is non-verbal, and meet his other needs), she has also had a chronic illness herself. She has had many other challenges along the way, but instead of giving up, she continues to push herself to learn and grow into her highest potential. She is a very gifted intuitive and has great personal insight. I am very happy to be able to coach her and help her move into her empowerment!

Candidate Two – Have you ever met anyone who always makes everyone feel at home? This candidate is like that. She is so genuinely kind and friendly that she is the heart of whatever group she is in. She always is willing to help and encourage and often takes care of everyone instead of taking care of herself. She has raised a beautiful daughter with Asperger’s Syndrome on her own and also cared for her mother, both of which still live with her. This last year has brought a lot of financial challenges with unexpected expenses because of medical challenges, cars breaking down, and debt from college. Despite all that is on her plate, she continues to focus on how she can grow spiritually, help others, and learn how to unconditionally love and support herself. I am incredibly grateful our paths have crossed and feel very honored to be able to help her continue growing her immense spiritual and personal gifts. 

Candidate Three – I have great love and respect for this candidate! She has gone through many trials in her life, including going through breast cancer a year ago. She has spent her career learning about how to help others through studying nursing, nutrition, acupuncture, and social work. Going through cancer and chemotherapy deepened her commitment to a path of spiritual growth, deep inner reflection, and a desire to be of service to others. She has great self-awareness and I feel very lucky to have been a part of her journey! I would love to help her continue growing and healing through a scholarship for this retreat.

How You Can Participate

Coaching Fund Love Offering – Visit the Coaching Fund page at the link below and your name will be entered into the drawing for every $10 love offering. For example, if you made a $100 love offering, you would be entered 10 times into the raffle. We will be pulling names for prizes on 5/11 (New Moon Circle), 5/21 (Women’s Wisdom Book Club) and 5/30 (Spiritual Retreat) and you will be notified if you win. Your name will stay in the drawing for the entire month, so the earlier you make a love offering, the more chances you will have to win! The goal is to provide $100 Scholarships to each of the candidates. Any additional funds raised will be used to meet the goals of the Coaching Fund to provide affordable, ongoing coaching support for those who need it through scholarships, discounted events, and discounted coaching sessions.

Oracle Card Message for the Month of May

From the Gateway Oracle Cards by Denise Linn

“Looking Deeper – Things are not always as they seem. Look deeper into situations and relationships in your life. Something that seems closed may just be ready to open. If you go beneath the surface, you may find hidden gems of truth, light and abundance.” 

Nancy’s Reflections

Spring is a time of new growth and with all new birth, the process can sometimes be painful or scary. If you think about a seed’s process before it pushes through the soil, there is a time when it may have no idea what it is reaching for. There is even the possibility that it won’t break through the shell that protects it to start growing at all. I feel we are collectively in such a period. We often resist letting go of our “shell” because we are afraid we will be hurt if we don’t stay hidden in the place we have felt protected. But just like the plant, if we don’t answer the call to grow into our full potential and to create new life, we will eventually stagnate and die.

When we “look deeper” into the circumstances of our lives, we discover there is no reason to be afraid. In fact, we, like the plant, are wired to survive and thrive. The plant is instinctively drawn toward the sun, even if it is unable to see it. We, too, are wired with a deep wisdom and powerful life force that wants us to thrive and grow.

That is the key this month for working with the energies of this card. It is to surrender to a deep trust that there is a part of you that always knows what is needed. It is the part of you that is connected to the Creator and the Earth itself. It knows where the light is and it knows what it needs to draw from the soil to grow toward that light. As we look beneath the surface of what is happening within us and our world, you can see that there is a seed that has broken open and new life that is pushing to be born into our world. Have faith that it will happen. Relax and trust that no matter how many times you look and see an empty field where you planted your dreams, that in truth, many of those seeds are on their way up to the surface ready to burst into life.

May Coaching Tool

This is a wonderful video sharing a 10 minute morning yoga chakra balancing sequence which originated with Anodea Judith (one of my favorite spiritual teachers/authors!). This is a gentle, easy practice that anyone can do and it will help get your energies flowing at the start of your day!

Panic to Empowerment – Tips to Stay Out of Fear

I decided to post this week’s newsletter from my email list on the website, as I know anxiety and panic are something that a lot of people struggle with. Hope you find it helpful!

Glacier National Park

Last week, panic attacks were the theme with three different people in a span of 24 hours! This took me back to my own experience with panic and reminded me of my vow to never go there again! I wanted to share what I learned from the experience with the hopes of helping others avoid the experience all together, as it was one of the most horrible things I ever went through.

The bottom line to stay out of a panic attack, is to keep your inner batteries charged up and not depleted. When we are in a constant state of anxiety and stress, it wears down the reserves and our adrenal glands become fatigued. This means our ability to cope with additional stressors is greatly diminished. My own panic attack felt like I was having a heart attack or something worse. I felt like I was dying and I was rushed to the emergency room. Once it subsided, I then had years of constant anxiety that was fueled partly by my fear of having it happen again! Below are some simple steps you can take to recharge your batteries (if they are already depleted) or to keep them charged up so you can avoid anxiety and panic.

Steps to Stay OUT of Adrenal Fatigue and Panic

1. Take a 30 minute walk everyday outside (preferably alone if you can). This saved my life! Exercise and breathing are the ways to clear the excess cortisol and other stress hormones from your system. When we are walking we are moving and breathing more deeply. Plus, we are in nature which helps to settle and calm the nervous system. I still do this every day now!

2. Donna Eden’s Energy Medicine – Having tools to use when you get into an anxious state is so important! I like the Energy Medicine Toolkit – I can flip a card and just do what it says if I’m anxious. You can also use the techniques to sedate the triple warmer and strengthen the spleen meridians which is essential to getting out of flight or flight. You can find those on You Tube for free. Learn a few easy techniques to calm the triple warmer so you have them on hand whenever you need them.

3. Rub your feet – Even if you have no training with reflexology, this is still a very powerful tool to use. Simply start rubbing your feet, toes, and ankles. As you find sore spots, spend more time there until they feel better. Let your intuition guide you and you will soon feel much more settled. You can access the entire system from the feet energetically – plus rubbing the feet reminds us to get back in our bodies which is much-needed when we are in a state of anxiety or fear.

4. Pay attention! Don’t ignore feelings of stress or overwhelm. When that starts, it is time to slow down, take the physical steps mentioned above to get out of fear and then get some insight into what is going on inside of you. I have found that anxiety usually stems from a truth that I am afraid to face or that I’m attempting to push myself into doing something that is not in resonance. Figuring out what is going on (after you have taken the steps to settle yourself) will help resolve the deeper message the fear is trying to bring.

5. Resist the urge to “think” to find a solution – When something goes wrong, we are quick to jump to thinking as a means of finding the answer. This is the worst thing you can do when you are struggling with anxiety. The sympathetic nervous system is activated when we are thinking. You want the parasympathetic system to kick in that is all about being. That is why having tools on hand you can use immediately without having to “think about” what to do is so important. Often, anxiety hits in the middle of the night, so having something you can do instantly to feel better is crucial.

Finally, just remember that your best friends when you are feeling anxious are movement and breathing! As tempting as it is to climb into bed and hide out, move instead! Even doing something like washing the floor can help, as it will clear out the stress hormones!

Opportunities to Connect

3/24 Saturday 1-5PM Spring Open House – This event is full – I’m excited to see those of you who are coming! I will be sending out an email soon with details.

3/31 Saturday 10 AM – 12 PM (Hinckley Metroparks) ReWilding Hike- A huge challenge we are facing as a collective is our disconnect from nature and our own physical systems. We have moved so much into our heads that our systems are constantly in a state of stress. Being at home in the natural world and in our physical bodies can change that pattern. This event will share some information about the concept of “ReWilding,” teach you some simple techniques to help you be more connected to the natural world, and give you a chance to get outside and get some exercise too. We will be talking for about an hour inside and then walking for an hour around Hinckley Lake. Love Exchange: $15/Members or $30/Non-Members. Reply to this email (for email subscribers) or use the contact form at the bottom to register.

Oracle Card Reading for the Week

From The Fool’s Wisdom Oracle Cards by Sonia Choquette

The Play Fool – “Have fun and be playful.”

Nancy’s Reflections: This is so perfect with the topic of anxiety and panic! Worrying and being in our head is what causes us to land in anxiety and panic, so playing is the perfect antidote! When we play and laugh, our nervous systems settle. We are able to move out of fear and into love, which then brings us more love to enjoy! A few tips to help you find that playful energy (as I know it can be tough when we feel weighed down by worries):

1. “I am laughing!” – I find that when I can’t get myself out of a heavier state of mind, if I start repeating this affirmation, my energy lightens and shifts. So even if you can’t get yourself to laugh out loud, try saying this statement over and over and it will make it easier to laugh for real.

2. Listen to Kid’s Music – I shared in a group recently that I’d been doing a lot of the hokey pokey lately! Singing simple childhood songs – especially ones that make you move – is a great way to get out of heavy adult energy and into fun. If you look on Pandora or You Tube or other music collections, you can easily find recordings of childhood songs. Have some on hand this week to pull out when you need a little lightening up!

3. Dance – Dancing is great exercise and it is also tremendous for freeing up our resistance. Don’t worry about looking good or having good moves! Just move your body in whatever way feels good and shake off the stress! I loved the movie “Sing” and one of the songs on that was “Shake it Off.” That is a great one to dance around too, especially if you have something you want to shake off!

4. Get outside and wander – When I was a kid, I spent a lot of hours in the vacant lot next door looking for fossils or climbing trees. Find time to wander outside a bit, even if it is just in your backyard. There is so much going on out there that we miss because we are too in our heads to notice. Find your childhood curiosity again and reawaken your playful spirit!

Coaching Tool for the Week

Here is a quick video to explain how to do foot reflexology on yourself!

Wishing you all a playful, anxiety-free week!
With much love,

Spring is coming! I have always loved spring and getting to see the green coming back. Spiritually and energetically, it is a call to plant the seeds of what we would like to grow in our lives.  I have three different coaching events coming up this month that can help. See below for details:

New Moon Meditation Circle 3/16 7-9PM: The New Moon is a great time to make new wishes for the coming month. For this event, you will be led on a guided meditation and have time to connect with your own intuition to discover what you would love to create this month. You will also learn a tapping technique to help you release any subconscious blocks that may be interfering with manifestation. You will also receive an oracle card reading to finish up the evening. Love Exchange: $15/Network Members or $30/Non-Network Members

Spring Celebration Open House 3/24 1-5PM (Hinckley, OH):

My wonderful coaching clients have come together to offer a special event this spring to help raise money for the Crossroads Coaching Scholarship Fund. Join us for an afternoon of empowerment where you will experience the following…

  • Empowerment Circle with Nancy Nicholas (Intuitive Life Coach) to provide intuitive insight, practical coaching, and specific strategies to empower you to create your dreams this spring.
  • 15 Minute Life Purpose/Career/Work Angel Reading with Paige Koteles (Angel Intuitive/Spiritual Coach) to provide insights into your relationship goals
  • 15 Minute Health Coaching Consultation with Buddy Ann Ross (Naturopath/Holistic Coach) to provide practical tips to reach your health goals
  • 15 Minute Relationship Rune Reading with Shannon Whalen (Reiki Master/Shamanic Practitioner) for guidance on how to manifest your life purpose or career goals
  • 10 Minute Energy Balancing Session with Neil Kopchak (Reiki Master)

Rewilding Hike 3/31 10 AM – 12 PM (Hinckley Metroparks): Join Life Coaches Ryan O’Toole and Nancy Nicholas to learn how you can begin the “Rewilding” process by getting out in nature and reconnecting to your own wild self. We will start off indoors sharing about the concept of rewilding, how it can help you be healthier, happier, and more at home in nature, tips for making your hiking experience more fulfilling, and then we will be taking a three-mile walk around Hinckley Lake focused on nature observation and getting in shape for spring.

Oracle Card Reading for March

From Soul Coaching Oracle Cards by Denise Linn

Delight – “Clap your hands with joy and let your inner child play. Be silly or play hooky and take a day off. This isn’t the time to buckle down and get to work; this is when you should be madcap and spontaneous. Have fun!”

Affirmation: “I delight in everything in my world and divine joy fills me!”

Nancy’s Reflections

As bizarre as it sounds, the more tense things get in the world, the more important it becomes to play. We are trying to shift into a lighter, higher vibration that is closer to the frequency of love right now -personally and collectively – so finding ways to enjoy your day and the simple pleasures it brings is actually accomplishing a lot! This month as the weather begins to shift into spring, find time to get outside and experience the wonder of nature. Be grateful for the still cold, snowy times too when you can relax with a cup of tea and enjoy being somewhere warm. Below is a great tool to help you get into a state of gratitude which is always a wonderful way to find delight in life and bring in this higher vibration which has the power to transform experiences and relationships that no longer resonate into something that is a better match.

Coaching Tool For March

I am really enjoying the Tapping Solution Telesummit! If you are interested, you can still sign up for free and listen to the remaining days of calls. In the meantime, one of the speakers I listened to was Brad Yates. I just loved his gentle approach and sense of humor! He has hundreds of tapping videos available on You Tube for free. Here is one you can watch by him to help bring in delight:
