The Goddess Times
Creating A New World Together
Welcome to the June Goddess Times, 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.
We held our first Retreat Day of the year in April on an organic farm just outside Glastonbury and what a wonderful time we had. Thank you to all those who attended the day; it was filled with much love and friendship and we both loved every minute of spending time with you. Thank you to Jenny once again who brought us the most incredible cosmic healing sounds and song. To sing and dance in the woods is one of the most joyful of experiences.
There were teachings and healings during the day and we held our ceremony outside in the most beautiful woods in the afternoon; there are photographs in the gallery on our website if you would like to take a look: http://www.waterlilytemple.co.uk/p&rGlastonbury17p.htm
This month brings the summer solstice, an occasion when the Earth is flooded with more light than at any other time of the year and it is from that moment when we enter into the second half of the yearly cycle where the light begins to diminish again. Fill yourself with the abundant light which will be present and you will be nourished by it in time to come.
We wish you many blessings for this summer solstice.
Margaret and Graham
Some facts about the month of June.
June, named after Juno, the goddess of marriage, is the sixth month of the year, and is one of the four months with a length of 30 days. Just like the month of May, no other month begins on the same day as June. This is also the month with the longest daylight hours of the year.
June's birthstones are the Alexandrite, the Moonstone, and the Pearl. Alexandrite represents health and longevity. Moonstones represents change, new beginnings and the shifting tides of emotion and can help a wearer to alleviate stress, especially due to sudden changes in life. Moonstone is also believed to increase intuition and aid in lucid dreaming. Pearls symbolize purity of heart and faith, as well as growth and transformation through difficult circumstances.
Its birth flowers are the honeysuckle and the rose. Honeysuckle traditionally stands for bonds of devotion, love, fidelity and generosity. Few flowers have as many meanings attributed to them as the rose. Depending on the type of rose, roses can indicate romantic love, secrecy, desire, gratitude, mourning, impossible hopes, modesty, joy, love at first sight, innocence, sacrifice and much more. In the traditional language of flowers, roses are among the most important flowers.

Messages Of Light
Nature heals us and I am sure that all of you reading this feel better when you step outside onto the land whether that be in a small garden or out into the wildness of the countryside. The Earth is filled with so many healers, so many medicinal plants and trees and many wonderful medicines are made from them, however we can receive the blessings of the plants just by being amongst them and if we cannot do that then we can visualise them and their essence will fill us and bring harmony and healing. As many of you know my passion is flowers, it always has been and my connection to them just grows with each day that I spend amongst them. They are the angels of the Earth for they carry such fine and sacred vibrations and they have the ability to create great transformation in body, mind and soul.
The flowers always speak to me for everything has consciousness, there is nothing which does not and if we only would listen we would hear the messages being brought to us from the natural world. At the moment of enlightenment you have the realisation that you are not separate from anything else and you know that everything around you is filled with divine light, with knowledge and with consciousness so practise now feeling yourself as part of everything and this will take you a step further on the path of Ascension.
Individual flowers call to me and bring their wisdom and guidance but today all the flowers called me, they called in unison to be heard for they tell me that they are so badly needed in this world of ours which is filled with so much sorrow. They would like to contribute more of their healing vibrations to heal the heart and soul and the mind. The called out to me as one and asked to be heard for they do have a voice.
I sat in my “office”; this is where I sit in a secluded place behind the shed and I knew that I had to turn my chair to face all the flowers growing there so that I felt as though I was amongst them. They stood before me like a great babbling crowd, so keen to be heard for they understand what turmoil the world is in. I looked at them, marigolds, meadow cranesbill, London pride, yellow roses, alyssum, foxgloves and even some primroses which are still in flower; there was a great throng of them all wanting to speak at once and so they did and in one voice they brought their message:
“At last we can be heard and we speak as one, all the flowers of the world united, united in healing and wisdom ready to be brought to you. We have so much to teach you and so much healing to share also but first we ask you that you observe how we live for we are a mirror image of your own life. We are born and we die and we are born again, we are eternal just as you are. We go through our own seasons from youth to old age and just like you as we age we may not be as fit as we were when we were young. The whole universe is born on these principles of birth, death and rebirth for there is no death only an ever continuing cycle of blossoming and blooming in the wisdom acquired through a lifetime of teachings.
We provide food for the insects and the bees and we share our nectar freely for we have a role to play in the harmony and continuation of the principle of life so you see we are not that much different from you. We carry many healing vibrations and many teachings within us for we can show you how to live and just as we survive in differing conditions then so can you and we also need to be in the right place just as you do too.
We provide healing oils and beautiful perfumes which carry the highest vibrations of light and fire but more than this we are the representatives of the seven cosmic colour rays and it is in this capacity that we bring our greatest abundance to the Earth. The colours shine through us moving through the hidden dimensions out into the world of matter and these colours are our gift of the world. We are tended by the heavenly gardeners, the elemental spirits which ensure the health and the life of the plant world.
We come to you as a chorus of flowers singing our song of love and healing as we radiate out into the world a rainbow of light, a shining light to wrap around the Earth. We are here for you for your own healing and we ask that you connect to us as you never have before. You will know which of us calls you when you turn your head and come and stand beside us and it is in that moment that we will radiate out to you our sacred colour and the colour will provide you with all you need at that moment. Talk to the flower who calls your name and you will receive guidance back; you will probably doubt what you sense is being conveyed to you and you will think it is coming from you but we ask you to remember that we are not separate from you, we are one and so trust what you feel and it will be right.
Make this connection deep in your heart and look into the depths of the blossom before you and you will find yourself transported into realms of light in a way you never have before. Spend some time within that light for you will have entered the universe of that flower and there will be visions for you beyond your wildest dreams.
Fill up with the colour from the flower who has chosen you and let it remain within you to heal you on all levels until the time comes when your head turns once again to another bloom who waits for the next stage of your healing and awakening. Drink in the spectrum of all our colours and we will nourish you until within you are filled with a great rainbow of everlasting healing and harmony and when you walk amongst others your rainbow light will cover them without you having to do anything at all.
May you always walk in the rainbow vibrations provided for you by us; we wait for you and when the time is right you will hear the call to our abundant light.”

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 which is relevant to the energies around us at the time. The flower for this month is a yellow rose and this rose is a Rambler called Malvern Hills. The rose is the Queen of flowers and what better ambassador of the floral world to walk with you during the coming month. This beautiful small, yellow cream rose brings the golden light of all knowing to you and its name brings the hills to you also. The name of a flower is part of its vibration just as our own name is the essence of who we are. The hills bring the higher regions, not the loftier heights of the mountains but the gentle uplands of wisdom.
Whenever you need to rise above your situation place this rose within your heart and you will find yourself lifted up into the gentle hills of awareness and you will find that solutions to your problems come very easily into your mind.
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 £30 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.
A CD version is available for UK by post, details on download page.
There are gardens which exist in the realms of spirit and this is why many through the ages have tried to copy them as they have created their own paradise gardens. However beautiful our own gardens are or the gardens we visit none can compare to the gardens in spirit. In these gardens you will find gardeners who work in the light continuing their passion after they have passed over.
Visualise a rainbow of such fine light spiralling around you so that you are covered in its Mystic vibrations. Let these colours sink into your being so that you are filled completely with this light. After a little while you will feel a very strange sensation as though you are rising up as you actually rise up in consciousness through worlds of light and colour. Eventually you will stop for you will have arrived at one of the heavenly gardens and as you look through the rainbow light surrounding you you will see before you the most beautiful garden where everything is made of light and colour. You walk along a path and explore this garden and even though everything is made of light it is more real than anything you have ever experienced upon the Earth.
There are fountains in the garden and birds and insects and bees just like upon the Earth and all the while you can hear the most melodious sound emanating from the flowers and it sounds like a choir of angels. You can honestly say that you have entered paradise in this paradise garden.In the very centre of the garden is a beautiful seat made out of luminous white stone and there are roses carved into it. You sit upon the seat and absorb the colours from this most beautiful garden and you receive healing for your body, your mind and your soul and the deepest peace enters your heart as you listen to the harmony of the flowers.
Each month I will include the teachings from our Wirral gathering on the Moon Circles website so that those of you who would like to participate but are unable to may also receive the same. There is a contacts page for other circles on the website for other areas of the UK.
If you are running a circle and would like to be included then please send us your contact details. Also if you would like help and guidance in setting one up I will be happy to help you.
