Creating A New World Together
May Magdalene Newsletter 2020
Welcome to the May 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.
Beltane blessings to each and every one of you, may the Beltane fires and the sacred marriage of the god and goddess reflect back to you as you find your own inner fire and inner union.
Margaret and Graham
As well as offering Soul To Soul Healing appointments by telephone I am now providing Personal Transmission sessions also by telephone. These are 60 minute long sessions where you receive channelled messages for your healing and spiritual evolution. The details are on the website:

Messages Of Light
My brother has decided to write a journal of his life and as part of this he has been looking further into our ancestry. My father came from Cork and we were brought up on many tales as well as tales of the little people and all things magical but what always stood out to us was the story of his mother and father. He told us that his father was the head gardener in a big house and he had run away with the daughter of the family who lived there. When I was seven we visited relatives in Ireland and he took us out to show us the big house where his mother was born.
All I can remember was when we pulled up outside there were two gateposts which were the entrance to the drive up to the house and my brother and sister can only remember the same things as myself. My brother and I have searched for a long time to try and find the house where our grandmother was born but we couldnít find anything. As you probably already know it is very difficult to find anything out about Irish ancestry as most of the records were destroyed. Then about a week ago we received some information from my nephew who lives in Ireland about her and at last we have discovered what we were looking for.
We found out her maiden name and where she was born and it was in a place called Eden Hill and I thought what a beautiful and perfect name as the love of nature and gardening has been passed down to me. My nephew had found the house which now is a language school and equestrian centre so I went on Google earth to have a look and although I couldnít see the house the Street view was of two gateposts which led up the long drive and I recognised them immediately and I knew this was it. It was such a wonderful feeling to have found something I was looking for and it was to do with my roots as well.
I found a picture of the house as well and what a beautiful house it is and through all of this I felt the closeness of my paternal grandmother. My father used to say what a lovely person she was but I donít know anything more about her. It was such a feeling of at long last finding what I was looking for but as I reflected upon it it felt far more than this for it was a connection to something much deeper within me.
At this present time Graham and I are waiting for results of DNA testing and we are both excited to see what they will reveal. I know that mine will probably be 99% Irish but we are not sure what Grahamís will be. As I reflected upon the desire to discover our DNA roots and the desire to find my roots in Ireland I knew that this was about something else; whatever we do in the outer world is a reflection of what is going on in our inner world and vice versa. My search for my roots was also about my deeper connection to my inner roots and many things related to this. These roots are all about my own emotional self and of the very beginning when my emotional roots were planted and of how I have searched long and hard to get to the bottom of them and now I understand where they come from, I am in the picture.
The roots within are also what is in the depths of us, those things which we are passionate about and want to share with the world or to express them in our own particular way. My passion is my work as a teacher and a healer but also my passion for nature and the flowers and I never do my spiritual work without bringing nature in and I know I want to go even deeper into this for they are my roots.
It was very interesting that the day after I discovered my grandmotherís birthplace I went out into the garden and a flower had snapped off a plant and whenever this happens I know it is because the plant is asking to come inside and be put in a vase. The flower was aquilegia which is also known as grannyís bonnet and it carries the vibration of the grandmothers. I brought this beautiful pink flower in but at the same time I knew that I was bringing my grandmother in. I have never met her and I didnít know anything really about and she had worked with me briefly a long time ago but now I knew she was there and part of my own team in spirit but she also brought in the universal grandmother energy. How magical it is when the flowers join in with our searching and healing.
Where ever you are in your own journey to finding yourself and to healing yourself it is always about roots, the roots of you and the roots of your emotional patterns and we have to be like detectives to go back to retrace our steps and go back into the energy of those things when the root was originally planted, that is the start of healing. We work from the very beginning when the seeds were sown of emotional pain and patterning and we work forward through all the circumstances of our present life and the patterns which have been repeated time and time again. We do this until the day comes when we have got to the very bottom of what has motivated us all of our lives and it is then we can pull up, see it and heal it and transform the root through understanding.
It is after this that you can fully honour and accept the roots of you for who you really are and what you are about and what your love is and what your passion is and how you would like to live your life and it is then that you can live your life just being you. Through this revelation I have not only found out about my grandmother but I have also brought in the grandmother energy. We are very used to working with the mother energy and we work with the divine mother and the mother goddesses but when we work with the grandmothers we truly are connecting to the deepest ancient mystical wisdom for the grandmothers carry a very special essence within them.
When we work spiritually with the mother energy it is to nurture us and allow us to feel held through the struggles of life and the mother keeps us safe for she looks after her child but when it comes to the grandmother vibration this takes on an even deeper meaning and her energy is different. She is the greatest comforter of all and she is always the wise one and she holds us in her light keeping us safe and nurtured but filling us with a timeless wisdom.
Many of you will have grandmothers in spirit who will come around you even if you are not aware of this and they will help you particularly when times become more challenging but as well as working with your own grandmothers you can also call in the grandmother energy. In ancient tribes the grandmothers were always the keepers of the wisdom and they were held in the greatest respect within the tribe and it was they who people would turn to when they needed wisdom.
Turn to the ancient grandmothers, call them in and sit with them in any setting which feels cosy and comfortable to you; you can sit at a fireside in a beautiful cottage, you can sit out in the woods among the plants or in a garden surrounded by the abundance of nature. Grandmother wisdom will always completely fill you and reassure you.
The grandmothers wait for you I can feel them in spirit, the ancient ones, they are gathering for it is time for much deeper wisdom to be given to you. Where ever you are in your journey it is time for the greater awakening of your understanding of life and all you have experienced. It is time and they gather so go and sit with them and you will be blessed by the most abundant love, healing, reassurance and wisdom so deep and knowing.
As well as connecting to the outer grandmothers and spiritual grandmothers we also have an inner grandmother and this is the Crone stage of awakening and you do not have to be old to reach this point. The inner Crone or grandmother is that part of you who always knows, she always has the answer and she is always there for you when ever you need her light.
When I was bringing in the grandmother energy I was at the bottom of the garden and I suddenly bent right over and I felt as though I had a stick in my hand and I knew immediately what this was about. When the grandmother energy comes to you very often we feel so old but it is not the age of the body it is the old ancient wisdom that is being shown to us which is present to help us in what ever way we need.
Magdalene High Priestess Training
We have an 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:
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 an aquilegia or as I have mentioned the grannyís bonnet. Aquilegia is also called columbine as they are also known very much as fairy flowers but they bring the grandmother energy with them as well. Some of the flowers are so delicate they actually resemble an old-fashioned bonnet and they are absolutely exquisite filled with many petals.
When ever you need a grandmother around you whether it is your own or the grandmother energy then manifest this flower and hold it in your hand and ask for help. As you sit you will feel a beautiful soft shawl being draped around your shoulders and a grandmother will come to you and you can sit with her and receive what ever you need.
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.
Feel a Brown shawl being wrapped around you; Brown is the colour of nurturing and it is also the colour of the soil itself and whenever we work with it we are drawing much closer to the Earth. Sit within that energy and feel how soft and comforting it is and it will take you into yourself.
After a little while you will look around and see that you are in the most beautiful place in nature, everywhere you look you see abundance. The trees, the flowers, the grass, everything is in full abundance. It is warm and sunny with blue skies overhead and you walk through the long grasses and through the wildflowers which are everywhere and there are bees, birds, butterflies and insects.
You walk on through the landscape until you come to a running River and sitting by the River are some women and when you come close you see how old they are. Their faces are lined and their hair is either grey or white but they are wearing the most amazing patterned colourful clothing so that even though they look old physically there is a vibrancy around them.
There is a fire in the middle of their circle and over the fire a delicious drink is brewing sending its fragrance everywhere.
The grandmothers stand up although some of them canít stand very straight and some have sticks to support them but they stand and wait for you with huge smiles upon their faces and much laughter within their voices. They welcome you and ask you to come and sit in their circle. As you sit with them they begin to tell stories and you listen to the ancient tales which are filled with such joy.
After the stories they then pass around the beautiful drink which they have brewed upon the fire and you celebrate your togetherness. After a little while one of the grandmothers stands up and she begins to sing and you have never heard a song or a voice like this before and the sounds which radiate from her seem to pass through every one so that you feel the sounds moving through you and they fill you with so much love and nourishment your very soul is soothed.
You sit with the grandmothers and enjoy so much their wonderful company and when it is time to leave the one who sang comes and presents you with a gift which is to be a reminder of your connection to the grandmothers. She tells you that you may return here at any time you need nourishment and reassurance and love and they will always wait by the River here for you.
