As chaos seems to rain down on our world, it is easy to get caught in fear. More than ever, we need to be warriors of light and refuse to relinquish our right to create a loving and peaceful world. So how do we do this?
We can only do it by working from the inside out. When you are confronted by something in your outer world that frightens you or angers you, a good policy is to check within. One of the techniques shared during my shamanic training was to ask “Is this upsetting me greater than a 2 on a 1 to 10 scale (10 is the highest)?” If the answer is “yes,” then you are dealing with something that is really about you.
Of course, you may ask yourself how does this work with world disasters such as hurricanes, floods, and mass shootings? How can those be about me? There are many ways we can look at this, but for the purpose of this post, I am most interested in how we can work with these experiences to empower ourselves and thus empower others. To do this, I feel that all these outer world experiences are things that we have chosen at a soul level to be part of the movie we are currently starring in. If we included these types of things in our story, the question becomes why? What do these events kick up for you? Do they make you feel angry or sad or victimized? Do you feel powerless or motivated to help others? How we view these events and how we react to them says a lot about what we are trying to learn within ourselves.
For instance, many of us can easily fall into the victim icon right now. There is a feeling of futility when we look at what is happening in the outer world and a sense of hopelessness can creep in. It is in those moments when we have an opportunity to step out of victim and into a place of power. We can affirm what we wish to see and experience in our world. We can invoke our Angels and Spirit Guides, asking them to show us what we need to learn and to help create our intentions in our world. We can shift to gratitude and focus on where love is ruling instead of fear. All of this takes discipline and sometimes it is difficult to have that discipline. But what other option do we have? Continuing to collapse into victimization creates more fear. We are here now in this incarnation having this experience. We can learn what this is teaching. We can stop being passive and allowing the world to happen to us and start consciously creating what we want to experience instead.

Have a great day!
I am North Carolina until the end of the month, but will be heading back to the Ohio area for the first week of May. I will be sharing some opportunities to connect when I am back in another post, but I wanted to be sure and invite you to this fun event at Conversations & Co Boutique! I am one of the presenters, along with some of my dear and talented friends. The workshop includes lunch and 20% off at the beautiful boutique. See below for full details…
We are in transformational times – standing on the bridge between who we have been and who we are becoming. We live in a time of expansion, where our consciousness is growing, our vibration is rising, and we are discovering just how magical life can truly be. As we stand on the cusp of this birthing, we are called to discover our deep feminine wisdom. To find again the part of us that knows instinctively who we are and why we are here. It is time to reconnect with the spiritual beings that are gathered to support us as we birth a new world into being.
I am in this process too and I wanted to gather some spiritual friends and my dear friend and mentor, Dr. Jaap Van Etten, to explore this unfolding of our wholeness and the coming home to our full potential. I have worked with Jaap for many years and every experience has been deeply transformational. He is a deeply wise, compassionate man who has powerful intuitive and healing gifts. I knew he would be the perfect person to lead the retreat experience I had in mind.
And now the retreat is happening! I have gathered some wonderful spiritual friends and we are heading to a beautiful cabin near the Great Smokey Mountains. I have three spots left! Participants would be sharing a room that has two twins (bunk bed) and a queen bed. The bottom bunk is already claimed, so there is an option of the top bunk and two women can share the Queen bed (or we can put an air bed in the game room for one of the participants). If you are interested, read on for full details!
Great Smokey Mountains Retreat with Dr. Jaap Van Etten
When: Saturday June 3 – Friday June 9th
Where: Bison Escape near Asheville, NC (Rental Details)
What to Expect: See the description from Jaap below –
The goal of the retreat is to support each other in the process of raising our vibration to fulfill our purpose of being on this planet in this time frame. We each have a unique function and vibration to contribute to the whole. However, due to our journey in a world that has not been supportive in allowing us to find our uniqueness, we need people with which can share, transform and grow in a loving and joyful way. During this retreat, we are with such people!! Also, we are fortunate that we can do this sharing and transformation in the beautiful environment of the Smokey Mountains!!
In this retreat, we would like to co-create a program that is optimal for all participants. After arriving and settling in, we will have the evening of our arrival a gathering in which we determine the key elements that we all would like to be part of this retreat. Therefore, there is not a fixed program. In this retreat, we co-create a program in an organic way, based on the developments within the group. There are, however, a few underlying aspects that we may incorporate. These aspects/subjects are:
- Deepening our connections with the subtle worlds that are such an integrated part of the world in which we live
- Following as much as is possible within the group the feminine approach: following our feelings and intuition and supporting each other in doing so
- Expanding our awareness (the active part of our consciousness)
Using the gifts of Mother Earth, earth energies and the many visible and invisible beings with whom we share this world will be an important aspect of this retreat. Therefore, we will give the retreat form in nature as much as feels in alignment with the developments. We also will make sure that we will include time to process our experiences as part of the retreat to have the most optimal benefits. In the evening we will have certain subjects to focus on, based on the “wish list” of the participants, and based on the overall goal of the retreat.
Based on what has been shared, it may become clear why we do not offer a fixed day-to-day program. We are all invited to share where we are on our journey, and what we need to continue this journey as optimally as possible. In that way, we will create our program. That will make this retreat dynamic, exciting and truly an adventure!
Love Exchange: $500/person (includes all teachings with Jaap and lodging). Meals are not included (we will take turns doing dinners for the group and get our own breakfast/lunch items). You can also experience a private session with Jaap at the retreat for an additional fee ($45/30 minutes or $80/hour).

Sending lots of love your way!
I hope you are all having a great start to 2017! This is a “one” year in numerology which means we are at the beginning of a new nine-year cycle. This is prompting lots of shifts and changes, both personally and collectively. With change comes opportunities, but it can also be challenging. The purpose of offering spiritual mentoring programs this year is to provide ongoing nurturing and support as we move to collectively create a new paradigm – one where we let love guide our course instead of our fears.
Spiritual Mentoring with Nancy Nicholas
Mentoring Club– Club members are part of an email list where they will receive weekly intuitive guidance, practical coaching and inspiration to follow their heart. Mentoring materials come in a variety of forms – written, audio recordings and occasionally videos. Members are also invited to participate in a monthly live call for members only. On the call, spiritual teaching, coaching strategies, energy balancing and intuitive guidance will be provided, as well as mini empowerment readings for those interested in getting some specific guidance and mentoring. Calls are recorded and the link shared through the club email list. Club members are also given priority for openings in the other mentoring programs and periodic special offers on private sessions and events. Love Exchange: Free/First Month Trial then $25/three months
Small Group Mentoring – The purpose of the small group experience is to offer more direct mentoring and the opportunity to develop friendships with others on a similar path. The groups are kept small (no more than 4 participants), allowing time for each person to receive specific guidance and support. The group will meet monthly by phone for 60-90 minutes for three months. Basic membership includes one private 20 minute support call during the three-month experience. Participants also have the option of adding monthly private one-on-one mentoring session at a discounted rate as part of the mentoring experience. Small groups can be made up of a group of friends or formed randomly. Love Exchange: $35/month (monthly call only with 20 minute support call during the three-month period); $60/month (adding a 30 minute private mentoring session); $100/month (adding a 60 minute private mentoring session). A three-month commitment is required.
One-on-One Mentoring – This opportunity provides ongoing support when you are ready to make big shifts. Often, when you are going through a big transition or ready to move into a new consciousness, you need a more ongoing level of support. For this type of mentoring, I’m available to support you if something comes up between the scheduled calls. Participants will work with me weekly or bi-weekly and have the option of as needed support throughout the month of mentoring. There are two ways to participate.
Option One: Two private coaching calls per month (60-90 minutes per call) and up to one hour of additional on call support as needed during the month. Love Exchange: $200/month
Option Two: Four coaching calls per month (one 60-90 minute call per week) and an additional 90 minutes of on call support as needed during the month. Love Exchange: $400/month

Energy Balancing Meditation with the Archangels

This is approximately 15 minutes long and will clear the emotional, physical, mental and spiritual bodies to restore balance to the whole system. I hope you find it helpful!

I thought it would be fun to do a wisdom circle for the New Moon this month as it is right by Halloween. The new moon is in Scorpio which brings lots of energy to the opportunity of creating new beginnings and deep transformation. The wisdom circle will offer intuitive guidance for the New Moon and connect you with a spirit guide, angel, nature spirit, or tree spirit who comes forward to support you with manifesting your New Moon wishes. All messages will have gifts for everyone listening!
When: Sunday 10/30 7-8PM EST
Where: By phone – number will be shared when you register
Love Exchange: $15/person
How to Register: Email Nancy@EmpoweringLightworkers.com to sign up. I’ll send you a PayPal link to complete your registration.
