Welcome to the June 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.
This month brings Litha, the summer solstice and it is the time where the sun’s energy is at its highest. Take in the sun as much as you can spiritually this month so that you are filled with the fire element which is active at Midsummer. Let the fire Burn bright within you, in your heart and in everything you do so that your passion and love will touch everyone you come into contact with.
Wishing you all many Midsummer blessings, may you burn bright with the fire of love, truth and understanding.
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 and set up your own circle if you wish. 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 £40 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
As the wheel of the year turns yet again and we move into Midsummer we connect to the most powerful energies of the whole year for the Sun shines with more light than ever before. The ancients knew the deepest mysteries of life through observing nature and observing the cycles of the seasons and by living in harmony with each season they learned to live in harmony, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
This summer energies bring the fire element and with each changing season we are given the opportunity to make a deeper connection to its element so that we are in full benefit of the healing vibrations which it provides. Emotional feelings which are not dealt with are stored within the body and they create an imbalance amongst the elements and in their corresponding organs and those emotions are stored within the organs.
The Earth element governs later summer and the stomach and the spleen and the emotions of not feeling grounded, rooted, safe or at home within the self become stored here. If you ever feel a sense of homelessness then look to these organs and look to the element of Earth. The metal element governs autumn and this is a time of death where the Earth prepares for its long winter sleep and the organs associated with this element are the lungs and large intestine. Grief, loss and sadness when suppressed take up residence in the lungs and when we do not let go and hold on regarding any emotions then these feelings enter into the large intestine.
Winter is governed by the water element and the corresponding organs of the kidneys and the bladder and the emotions which can come to rest here are fear, anxiety, phobias and anxiety. This is not surprising as these are the organs of the water element. Spring is governed by the element of wood and the corresponding organs of the liver and gallbladder and the emotions associated with them are anger and resentment so you can see how important these organs are in your healing as very often fear will turn to anger when deep emotions are not expressed.
The fire element which we are coming into now is the element of summer and it governs the heart and the sexual organs. All of the organs have positive emotions alongside suppressed emotions and positive feelings of the fire element are joy but a lack of joy due to life’s circumstances will suppress the fire. We are made of the elements and so is the Earth and to fully be in balance with the changing seasons around you you need to make full use of the elements of the season but remember that no element works in isolation for they are all connected and all influence one another.
The fire Burns low in many people, look at the saying about being burnt out. When you do too much and do not create a time for relaxation and you give too much of yourself away you are literally giving away your fire and when the fire Burns low you can become depressed, tired and feel out of sorts so stoke your fire at this wonderful time and you will find your energies begin to rise back up again.
We are not isolated from the Earth under our feet and in the same way we are not isolated from anything else in this universe or any other universes which also exist. In truth we are all one even though that might be very difficult to accept and to understand when you look at the terrible things which happen in the world. However we are all connected by invisible energies and those same energies run through every one of us and what one person does reverberates through the whole of existence. We are connected to the land, to the stars, to the elements and to each and every individual.
The fire is passion not only the passion for life but the passion of the love of spirit and many of you will already feel this with the deep knowing and understanding that there is something far beyond what you know which is filled with love and intelligence and which gives you life. There are many paths to unity, many paths to the light, the fire of wisdom and even though we are horrified at what others do in the name of religion and of the history of religion there is one fundamental truth and that is that the basic teachings of all paths carry the truth. It is only humankind who has distorted those truths and created monsters of teachings which suppress their followers and degrade women. However the truth was there in the beginning.
No matter what path you follow if you have the fire in your heart to discover love and truth you will find it. People have often asked me what path I follow but I only follow my own path and even though most of my work is nature-based because my passion is the Earth and the plants and flowers I have a great love for Hinduism and a great passion for Oriental wisdom and I work with the great teachers and saints of all faiths, to me it is all the same I can work with the goddess as well as a saint and see no difference. To be exclusive in our understanding of spirit does not bring unity and if you look at the teachings of the many great sages you will see that this is what they taught.
There is only one thing you need to do to find your way to find the light and that is to live in love and harmony without judgement of others and this is one of the hardest things to do. After all these years of walking this path I still have to stop myself when I find myself going into judgement, we have done it for so long but only self understanding and love will heal this.
Love heals all and it is through lack of love that we create physical symptoms within us it is as simple as that. You have created symptoms within your body because you did not love yourself enough. You did not love yourself enough to say no, you did not love yourself enough to stop a person controlling you, you did not love yourself enough to do the things you really wanted to do, you did not love yourself many times over and here I speak from experience, when I look back over my life it is so sad when I see how long I did not love myself.
Not loving yourself has created problems in your body and in your mind but you can heal those things by bringing the love back in. You have read many books and listened to many teachings about loving yourself and you have done well in coming such a long way in learning to say no to people and learning to find your voice and following your own path but you can use that same love to heal your body as well as your mind. If you have a problem in an organ go inside, into the organs, into the body and tell it how much you love it and keep repeating this. Love every part of you and those parts which cause you pain go deep inside and keep repeating how much you love them.
The body responds to the mind, it receives its instructions from your thoughts and if you keep pouring negative thoughts into yourself then the body will react accordingly but the reverse is true and if you keep pouring loving feelings into those parts which cause you pain your body will receive the signals that it is loved and it will create harmony once again.
You can talk to your body, you can talk to your DNA and you can give instructions for what you wish for you must repeat these things to undo the conditioning which it has known before. Love yourself and every part of you and remember that that love is the fire; it is the passion within you so now give it to yourself.
The Buddhists teach about the middle way and the Taoists too base all their wisdom on the middle path of harmony. Harmony is about never being too high and never being too low, it is about being in the middle so create peace in your daily life by being in harmony with others and with the planet and also with the changing seasons of the year. If you look at your life you can see that you too have moved through many seasons and when you come to the later seasons as in the autumn of your life you cannot do what you did in springtime however what you do have is years of accrued wisdom and so you live accordingly.
Mother Earth is at her highest vibration at this time, she is abundant with all manner of blossoming and her healing potential is also at its highest for we can pick the healing herbs at their best when they are filled with life-giving sunshine and we can receive healing from the abundant flowers and plants and trees. Mother Earth can heal us for she loves us as only a mother can; let her love you when you connect to her and feel the love which is transmitted to you and then transmit that love to yourself and to your body and fill yourself with healing love every day. Use your fire wisely and take advantage of its many blessings which it brings to us at Midsummer.
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 red Oriental poppy. What a magnificent sight these huge poppies are when they burst open in the summer.
The red Oriental poppy brings you into balance with this season of summer and because it is red it brings the fire element. It will bring you into harmony with the energies of the summer enabling you to absorb the fire of the season. Take the colours of the poppy, from the inner black at the centre to the red of the petals and manifest around you a gown made of red edged with black and you will draw in these two colours. The black is the deepest wisdom you could ever discover and it will enable you to access fully the fire of the red.
Here is a journey to create balance within and the energies of it are primarily fire but including all the other elements as well and so by bringing in fire plus a little of the other elements then you will be in perfect balance for this time of the year.
Sit quietly and then transport yourself to Hawaii, the land of fire and the land of rainbows. You will be taken to the edge of a volcano and you will feel the fire below you. Watch as the fire rises up from the volcano and feel that fire surround you. It does not burn you, it has come to bring its essence to you. You will feel the heat and you will feel the fire enter into your being particularly into your heart where the real fire lies. You will then fully understand what the fire element is about for you will feel within you a renewal taking place of your own fire and you will feel your energies awaken more than ever.
You move away from the volcano and you begin your descent down to the coast and on your way you stop for a moment and connect deeply to the Earth and you feel yourself putting roots down into the ground feeling the nourishment which the soil brings. This will make you feel nurtured and safe and it will be a beautiful feeling.
As your roots descend beneath you they will touch upon the metals which lie beneath the ground and you will draw up through your roots gold, silver and copper and you will feel them fill you. As the metals circulate through you there will be the most amazing feeling of strength and you will feel that you have the strength to carry out anything.
You make your way to the beach and you stand upon the sand and feel the winds as they move through you; you lift your arms up into the air and you dance and feel yourself playing with the streams of air which move through you. You feel as though all the cobwebs are being blown away and you are being made new with the winds of change flowing through you.
You then go into the ocean and you feel the rhythm of the waves as they go in and out and you understand more than ever how the water allows everything to flow freely and you feel your own energies flowing freely within you.
You complete your journey by sitting upon the beach absorbing the energies of this wonderful place and as you look into the sky it is filled with rainbows and you suddenly realise that the rainbow is made up of the fire and the water element as the Sun shines through the water droplets and you understand deep within your being that all the elements are connected as one and within you you feel that your elements within are in perfect harmony.
