Welcome to the March 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 Ostara, the spring equinox, so it is time to plant new seeds for new beginnings. Whenever we harness the energy of the cycles of the year we are in harmony with everything around us so may you all find peace and harmony in abundance. And
Sending you all many blessings for this very special time of the year.
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
We have all lived many lives and most of these lives have been simple ones, lives where we have learned our lessons and gained much wisdom. Even though many of us on this spiritual path have had lifetimes where we have been persecuted for our beliefs most of the lives we have lived have been quite ordinary.
As you grow spiritually you begin to remember some of those lives when the time is right and even though our healing needs to focus upon this life there are times where we awaken to the knowledge from a previous lifetime. I always share my experiences with other people so that they can apply these teachings to their own lives for life is indeed the teacher. I share this story with you now as it may trigger some memory or realisation within yourself.
My brother used to live full time in America but when he retired he shared his time between there and the UK and so he bought a beautiful cottage in Cambridgeshire. I remember the first time Graham and I visited him in his new home and something felt so familiar to me. Whenever I visit I am always drawn to the River which flows through his village and I go walking along it and I felt that I had connections to that area.
Some time after his move there I received a phone call from a person I have never met before inviting me to do a workshop near where he lives and so this took place and we were asked to return another two times but the strangest thing was that the next two workshops took place in the next village to my brother’s just a mile away. We kept up the links to the people whom we met deepening our connection to the land even more.
I give you this background information as it is part of the picture leading me to discover a life I had lived a long time ago and it is often the way that when we retrieve past life memories there are many clues leading us to the realisation. If you are ever deeply drawn to visit a place or it feels familiar when you have an urge to go somewhere then very often you have lived there before.
One day when we were staying at my brother’s Graham and I decided to go on the local steam train and as we travelled through a beautiful valley I noticed a church steeple in the distance and immediately I had to go to find that church, it was the greatest pull to go there. We were given a map of the train journey and it actually pointed out the place where the church was so I knew where it was. We did a return journey on the steam train and when we got back to the beginning again we drove off in the direction to find it.
We found the village and we found the church and as in the case with most churches they are built upon ancient churches and so the original church had been built there in the 600s. When I returned home when I related the story to my teacher she told me that I had lived there in another life and she told me who I had been. I had been a nun and I had set up a convent there with the building of that first church. I knew it was right and everything fell into place. There is even a story about her that as she was carrying a basket of food to take to the poor people some robbers came and tried to steal the food but they were unsuccessful and as it fell to the ground flowers grew everywhere. My passion for flowers has been with me all my life.
There had been so many clues when I read about the person I had been and I discovered that she had been married to a cousin of St Cuthbert. At that time it was usually the case that women became nuns following the death of their husbands. I am from the north-east and I have always had a very strong connection to St Bede and St Cuthbert and I knew that I had lived at that time but I never found out who I had been.
I knew I had walked along the River which flows past the village in that life, the same river that further afield runs through the village where my brother lives, I often saw swans on that River also when the memories came to me. I also knew that I had lived a life as a nun, I had always known it. Even though my church is nature and my great love is Hinduism I always feel a strong urge to visit country churches when I’m travelling and I sit under a window transported somewhere I do not know where, totally absorbed in something I cannot even put my finger upon. I know it is a memory of times when I have sat in silence in similar settings.
So I had retrieved one of my lives and it contributes to the greater picture of all the lives I have lived adding another piece of the puzzle to make the whole. There was one time when my self from that life appeared before me and she came to me as a shimmering pillar of golden light. Some of our guides are ourselves from other lifetimes. Today she comes to me as herself and still carrying a basket but it is filled with flowers. We need to expand our mind always and be open to new ideas spiritually so your guides could come to you from your past and your future to help you.
There was a famous man in America called Robert Munroe who studied past lives and he has written three books about his experiences and the experiences of others. During one of his own past life journeys he actually visited himself in the past and when his past self saw him before him he asked him if he was an angel for that is who he thought he was. So consider this also that an angel may come to you who is in truth yourself.
We are here to be fully present and to deal with the lessons of this life but sometimes we are given a glimpse of those other parts of us which we have forgotten. Most past lives have not been grand; they have been simple lives where we have gained much knowledge through the simple lessons of life. So if you have an overwhelming urge to visit a place or if you have always been drawn to somewhere then look deeper and maybe you too will find the clues to reveal another part of you.
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 you a pale blue rosemary flower for Rosemary is the plant to evoke memories and particularly past life memories.
Visualise a sprig of rosemary covered in pale blue blossoms and inhale its beautiful scent allowing its perfume to fill you. Feel the colours of the plant of the green leaves and the pale blue flowers create a cloak around you and then see the finest mist appear before you. Follow the mist and walk through it and it will lead to into a past life and as you emerge from the mist a scene will be revealed to you.
Transport yourself out into the countryside alongside a beautiful flowing river. As you walk along the River you feel the flow of the water creating a flow inside you so that your energies flow in harmony within. The sun shines down warmly upon you as you walk along in this peaceful setting observing the spring flowers and listening to the call of the birds as they begin nesting.
As you look at the water you notice that a huge white swan has glided to the side of the river bank and it is communicating to you mind to mind asking you to climb upon its back. You climb upon the back of the Swan and you sail gracefully along the River. Your whole being becomes entranced by the magic of this journey and you enter in to a deep meditational state within as you are carried along the water by this beautiful being.
A great peace fills you and you feel as though you are at one with yourself and at one with the beautiful scenery around you, there is no separation at all there is only unity. You then realise that the Swan is a symbol of the soul and it is your very own soul carrying you along the current of life keeping you safe and always moving you in the right direction.
