Welcome to the July Magdalene Newsletter, a place of sharing in these transformational times, honouring the earth and the sacred feminine during our journey towards unity. The old ways of separation do not work in the new world and as we move towards inner wholeness we are now coming together both within and without.
The year turns yet again as we have passed the Midsummer point and this second half of the year is one where we are taken deeper into ourselves and deeper into our connection to the Earth. May you be blessed by the abundant energies all around as you fully enter into the summer season of yourself.
Margaret and Graham
Magdalene Priestess Training
This is an 8 part series of downloadable audio workshops to be completed during each turning of the wheel of the year. I have set up a closed facebook group, Magdalene Priestesses, where you are to share your experiences of the teachings with me and with the others who participate. You will be given guidance and feedback there; you will also have the support of other trainee priestesses. At the completion of the year long course following the writing of a short essay you will be able to call yourself a Magdalene Priestess. This course will enable you to awaken to the lives you have lived as a priestess. Mary Magdalene was a Nazarene Priestess and she along with other cosmic teachers will provide the knowledge for this training. You can begin at any time of the year.
The cost is £50 for each of the 8 parts.
As we have had enquiries from people who would like to do this course alone for their own personal healing and education without participating in the Facebook group we are now offering it as a self-study course also. There will be no initiation or certificate at the end of it; the cost for each of these workshops is £20.
For those of you who are fully trained Magdalene Priestesses you can now register to begin the High Priestess Training.
Please get in touch if you are interested.
Messages Of Light
So much has changed upon our planet in the last few decades and now everything accelerates even more as new energies are brought to us. We are in the quickening once again as our evolution speeds up and we move towards the ultimate goal of our path which is direct knowledge of unity. The unity within will be a reflection of the coming unity without as the world moves towards peace and a golden time to come. Even if you do not believe this as you look upon the suffering in the world take heart for as sure as night follows day the light follows the darkness and the light is returning to the planet and it cannot be stopped.
Since 2012 there has been a greater awakening of the divine feminine as the Magdalene energies have flooded our planet bringing healing and awakening to both males and females and while these vibrations are still in the process of integration a greater balance is now here for us in the form of St Francis and what he represents.
When we look to any of the great cosmic teachers we refer to their presence and also the essence of what they represent. St Francis has come to work through me along with the other teachers who are already present in the work I do but it is the whole meaning of him which we are now ready to accept. You do not have to look upon the vibrations of the great teachers as being a person you can look upon them as universal and what they stand for.
St Francis was ahead of his time for not only was he very spiritually evolved in his understanding of the unity of all things but he also understood the presence of the divine in everything around him and because of this he had reverence for all life. The great evolution which is taking place upon the Earth is not only for the individual it is also for the planet itself for we have done much to bring it near to destruction. I only see hope and positivity when I look at the world despite the darkness of the fighting and lack of peace but I always look to the good things and the great advances which are taking place to clean and purify the land and to create greener models of living.
Not only are the land and the oceans being given attention to be restored to a more natural state but many now turn to a vegan diet and the numbers are increasing all the time. Through this happening there will be fewer animals upon the planet who are farmed for their food and subsequently less cruelty in factory farming and very abusive practices. It is not enough to respect the land we must also respect the animal kingdom for they have consciousness too.
We have come to the point where we realise we cannot live in separation from the land or from the future to come for we are only caretakers of this beautiful planet and we must change the way we live and change our attitudes and see the sacredness in all things. The truth is there is nothing which is not part of the great unified light, the divine, God and goddess and this includes you and I also for we are not separate from one another, we are part of that unified light.
The wisdom and the light of St Francis and the truth is that wisdom is light and light is wisdom is now rising up and this is just a beginning which will be reflected in the minds of humanity to begin to truly feel compassion for all things. This is a very subtle energy and it now seeps into the planet gently and slowly with warmth and nurturing and love. We have lived too long wanting more and focusing upon the never ending desire for more and while we have to be fully present here and that means engaging in life and enjoying life and having beautiful things around us many will find that the desire for worldly things will begin to diminish.
Many miracles have been attested to St Francis for he was a wonderful healer and while he brings to this present time a greater awareness of the environment and of the recognition and compassion for everything he also brings healing and nurturing. Just think of him and then allow yourself to sit in the radiant light which will be provided for you and you will find healing. Call his name and sit within that light and you will find that it radiates all around you and it is soft and quiet and deeply nurturing and healing.
Many need healing, healing for the body and for the mind and for the spirit so turn to him to his essence, turn to what he represents and sit within that glow and you will be refreshed and rejuvenated, feeling safe and looked after.
He called wisdom and miracles flowers for he had a deep connection to nature and the miraculous beauty filled his soul with love. He brings the colour Brown, the brown Ray, the colour of the soil and it is the colour many of you will find you are using for healing. The brown colour brings the Earth element and when we work with the Earth element it brings us the feeling of being safe and nurtured as by a mother. If you have been feeling that you are not rooted, that you do not belong anywhere then use this colour, if you do not feel safe then bring it in also, if you need to work with the roots of your problems bring in this colour and if you need a hug then wrap it round you like a blanket.
In this present time in the garden at the place where St Francis lived is a wild rose which has grown there since his time and it has no thorns and it is the only one of its kind, how symbolic this is. The thorns on a rose represent the suffering which is part of daily life but this rose is free from them and this is what he brings to you, he brings you freedom and peace through his love and his compassion. This is the year of the rose and the rose is the Queen of all flowers and she enables us to rise up for it is a symbol of the soul but the wild rose adds another quality to this beautiful bloom. The wildness helps us to connect back to our true authentic self, the healed inner child, the part of us which knows freedom.
The journey to wholeness and enlightenment and Ascension is the journey back to who we truly are for we all have had to shed the many layers we have gathered through life, layers of conditioning which have covered up the magnificence within. The ultimate goal of this journey is enlightenment and yet it does not mean that you become someone different you just become who you truly are including all the parts of you which you never liked. It is at that point where you fully claim your true self with the understanding that you are part of everything.
In Assisi there is a church within a church, the original church where St Francis prayed is covered by a later much larger church and this is symbolic of the journey within. The church within the church; the inner sanctum which represents going so deep into the heart where you will discover the part of you which contains your true essence. You are invited to journey deep within with the help of St Francis and he will make it a gentle journey as he takes your hand to face your true self.
He called everything sister and brother, there is a beautiful film about him called Brother Sun Sister Moon which is very evocative of what he expressed. We know he talked to the birds and this is why we still have deep associations with him with the bird kingdom but he talked to everything. I’m sure some of you do this too, I do, I talk to the trees and the flowers and everything and often they answer back.
Life is hard and when you step upon the spiritual path and you take the higher path which means that you are prepared to dig deep to face yourself and to heal those things you have carried with you then it becomes much harder as well because you cannot hide from yourself or from other people any more. This new vibration which is brought to us now through St Francis will help you with your struggles for we cannot walk this path alone, it is too difficult, we need support and guidance. The path gets narrower the further you travel along it and people will fall away from you and those you looked up to you will realise that they cannot help you any more for you have surpassed them in your own wisdom. Then the only way to go is within so when you get to this stage hold out your hand and ask for the love and nurturing of him to light your way.
This new light will open the hearts of many and it will also open all our hearts even more to the consciousness of nature as we turn more and more to natural foods, natural remedies and natural ways of living. Even though we are moving with such speed as technology accelerates and great benefits will come from this it will go hand-in-hand with the return to nature and nurture with the understanding that all life is sentient.
Bring in the brown colour and let it soothe you and heal you as never before and just know now what it truly represents for it will bring you the love which every one of us needs and deserves.
Flower of the Month
Flowers belong to another realm; they are the healers of the soul. Their cosmic blueprints are within the worlds of spirit. Each month I bring to you a flower and this month I give to you a pink wild rose. I have explained what this rose symbolises but it contains so much more. Any wildflower is far more powerful than a cultivated flower for it has been allowed to roam free and to go where it pleases and it carries elemental energies within it in abundance.
Bring in this flower when you feel restricted or when you feel the need to roam free to be yourself or to do what you want. Use it if you are living in restricted circumstances or in situations where you are not allowed to be fully yourself. Become the wild rose, become its five petals with the gold at the centre in your heart and feel yourself growing in the wildness of nature with the elements, the warm Sun and the rain and the wind and the Earth and the Earth beneath your feet nurturing and feeding you.
Feel yourself growing and spreading and casting seed and you will bring that freedom back into your everyday life.
Wrap yourself in the most beautiful brown cloak and feel how soft and nurturing it is and sit within this energy enjoying the feeling it brings.
After a little while you suddenly find that you have been transported to a beautiful wood in Assisi. You feel the hot sun pouring down upon you warming you inside and out and as you walk through the woods you hear the birds singing and you feel the peace in everything around you. After a little while you come to a clearing and there before you is St Francis sitting so quietly and peacefully. He beckons to you to come and sit by him and the two of you sit in companionable silence. You know you are just to clear your mind and connect to everything around you. As you do this and you reach outwards into the wood you become aware of every sound and everything around you. You hear and see with such crystal clarity and as you do this you can feel your own energy radiating into every blade of grass, every flower, every tree and every bird and in that moment you know without a doubt that you are not separate from anything at all.
St Francis turns to you and he smiles at you with so much love and he also smiles knowingly because he knows what you experienced. He then puts his arms up in the air and many birds appear out of the trees and they come to him and they surround you too. You find yourself able to talk to the birds and you can feel and sense what they are saying back to you and it is the most amazing experience and in that moment you fully realise that you can communicate with anything in nature.
Filled with deep peace St Francis leads you out of the wood and across the countryside around Assisi; you walk through the Meadows and through long grass and you watch the butterflies and the bees and the insects going about their daily business and all you can feel in your heart is deep peace for St Francis has shared with you the love and peace which he carries within.
