The Goddess Times

Creating A New World Together

 

 

Welcome to the October 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 are holding our last Retreat Day of the year at Cilcain in North Wales on October 29th and this will be a very magical day indeed as we celebrate Samhain and the ending of the old year. We will be exploring past lives as well as connecting to the energies of this very mystical time.

We have passed the autumn Equinox and are now experiencing the death and rebirth which autumn brings for this is the season to let go and move on. May you be reborn daily to a greater realisation that you are a beautiful divine being of light.

With love,

Margaret and Graham

Namaste

 

 

 

 

From Graham....

This year has gone quickly, or is it just me? We are coming into the last three months already and it will soon be winter. Don't forget our smaller friends as we start to see the tree colours changing and the shorter daylight hours. If you are going out for a walk this month put some bird seed in your pocket and leave it where our little friends can find it, food will be hard to find over the coming months.

Another thing for nature, plant a tree, at this time of year you can do this for free just get out over the next few weeks and you can find literally thousands of acorns on the ground. Grab a hand full and plant them in a flower pot, when they have grown a few inches plant them out in an open area. Margaret and I can see an oak tree every day that we planted almost twenty years ago - it's thriving!

Messages Of Light

I feel very strongly to share with you a teaching which was given to me in one of my spiritual development classes; it feels very important for it is about connecting to the source of everything.

We speak of God/Goddess of the great spirit and of the many names which are used to describe the source and we know that unity and oneness will be found when we do reach union with that source. However until any of us have a direct experience of this oneness we can only aspire to what is the ultimate experience of the spiritual journey.

There are many symbols for the source and one which I often use it the source of the River Ganges for water is always symbolic of spirit and we can use the source of any water to take us back to unity.

There are many names for God and Goddess and we can make our connection to any of these for the truth is that the light beyond everything is formless but when we connect to the gods and goddesses we are actually connecting to the manifestation from that light of the great spirit from whom we were created.

I will share with you now what I was given for I would like you too to experience the joy of this journey:

Begin by sitting quietly allowing your outer world to fall away as you retreat deep within, into the quiet and peace which is at the centre of your being.

You become aware of the most beautiful golden light surrounding you and it wraps around you, soft and peaceful and you absorb that light as if you were a sponge; take it deep within yourself so that your whole being is flooded with this golden light.

After a little while you become lighter and lighter and you become so light that you begin to ascend upwards and you continue to ascend higher and higher passing through all the realms of light all the while becoming lighter and lighter still.

This takes a while until eventually you come to a standstill and all you can feel is the golden light around you. You then become aware of the beating of wings and as you look before you you see an absolutely gigantic golden butterfly of a size which would fill the entire universe. You watch in amazement as this butterfly before you gently flaps its wings and with each beat of its wings you watch as universes begin to be formed from this simple act. You watch in amazement as creation takes place in a continuous movement from the beating of the wings. You are in the presence of the creator, of the great spirit and the great light which over lights us all and you are in complete awe of what you experience and of what you feel.

Then a change takes place as this huge butterfly suddenly explodes into millions upon millions of gold particles and then these particles gather together and take form until you see before you the most beautiful face and you are now looking upon the face of the great spirit beyond form who has manifested this image for you to acknowledge. You have never ever in the whole of your life experienced a blessing such as this for all you can feel pouring from that face is immense love and light and you know these two are one and the same.

A voice emerges from the face before you, speaking to you as a dear loving mother or father would for this indeed is your mother and father for you have been created from this light. For the first time you understand what a true mother and fatherís love feels like and it is beyond words and you know that this love is eternal for it will never end.

You stay in this light for a very long time and you can feel something very deep and transformational taking place within you.

The face before you then begins to explode into many golden particles and once again they gather together to create form once more and this form is in the shape of the most amazing golden altar.

You approach the altar and you receive the feeling of what you must do. You open your heart and you pour out of it all your troubles and worries, every single thing which you are holding on to; you empty out completely until your heart is clear.

You feel everything you have let go of; all your burdens have now been released and as you look at them upon the altar the altar begins to change and transforms into a pair of huge golden hands for you have given your burdens to the hands of the creator so that they may be taken care of for you are always taken care of too.

You have never before fully realised that you are looked after in this way and no matter how challenging your life has been you have always been looked after by your heavenly mother/father. Everything in your life comes from the grace of the light beyond form, all your healing comes from here. We think we do things and we work tirelessly to heal and to let go and to heal others but we are only a channel for this great light which runs the whole of existence.

Turn to the great spirit which over lights all things and who is your true guardian and ask for grace for your healing and for your life; go to the source, place your burdens within this light and you will feel that everlasting love returned back to you many times over. For all our strivings without the knowledge that we are an emanation of the one true source we will never know the full truth of who we really are for you and I are part of this great source of light which is our true home.

   

 

Magdalene High Priestess Training

We have launched a new online audio course, Magdalene High Priestess Training. This is available for those who have completed the Magdalene Priestess Training. It can be begun at 4 dates during the year and those who enrol must be able to participate in the closed facebook group, The Enchanted Castle, which has been set up specifically for this course.

This is a course of deep personal healing as well as providing mystical and magical teachings; it includes also ceremonial and past life work.

Those who complete the training will be qualified to train and initiate others as Magdalene Priestesses and they will be able to perform rites of passage ceremonies for others.

Here is the link to information about the training:

Mary Magdalene Pilgrimage and Retreat Days

Last gathering of this year

Sunday October 29th. "Remembering Past Lives", Cilcain Village Hall, North Wales

For further details and booking please go to the website: http://www.waterlilytemple.co.uk/p&rIndex.htm

 

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 shamrock flower. I have shamrock growing in my garden with the most beautiful green leaves and it produces a yellow flower. A yellow flower is a symbol of the soul so we know that shamrock not only heals the heart but it gives its light to our soul essence.

Recently I stood in amazement as I saw that the leaves of this plant were filled with rainwater and as these droplets lay nestled within the leaves it filled me with joy and I gathered some of that water for I knew it was a blessing. I will share that water with you now from the shamrock, from its flower and from its leaves and I place one drop and of it upon your forehead as an anointing, a blessing for your path.

This drop of water contains the essence of the shamrock and shamrock is a symbol for the Emerald Isle and Ireland is a symbol of the heart and the blessing you are to receive from this one drop of water and the anointing upon your forehead is a blessing for your heart and you will feel a change in your heart energy as soon as you receive it. You will enter your heart and find that a deep peace has been placed within there and your heart will be healed.

 

 

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.

 A CD version is available for UK by post, details on download page.

Mystic Journeys

See before you a beautiful ancient little wooden door which has a big heart carved within it but this is the door to your heart. You open the door quietly and step inside and find yourself in the most beautiful room. There is a roaring fire and two armchairs in front of it. You look around the room and you have never seen anything as cosy as this, there are beautiful paintings upon the wall and jugs of flowers scattered around and there is a window with the sun streaming through it.

You take a seat by the fireplace and you see that a tea pot covered in hearts and two teacups have been set there. You pour yourself a cup of tea and immediately you are joined by a companion who sits in the other chair and so you hand her the tea and pour yourself another cup.

She is wearing a dress covered in hearts and she tells you that she is a healer of hearts, in fact she just looks like a lovely old grandmother. She pats your arm and tells you she has come to sit with you as a companion for you to share together many things. She asks you to speak of the things in your heart, of your sorrows and your joys for she tells you that when you share in this way it brings a healing to you. She tells you that you try too hard to manage on your own without sharing what is truly in your heart.

You spend the most delightful time in this beautiful place with your companion and you share your troubles as well as your joys and she provides you with wisdom and understanding so that you feel better and you just know that everything is all right.
