The Goddess Times
Creating A New World Together
Welcome to the April 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.
It won’t be long before we hold our first retreat day of the year and this will be at Paddington Farm in Glastonbury, a beautiful sacred space. If you are interested in joining us the details will be on the link below and we still have accommodation at the time of the event available in the farmhouse.
This is the month of the blossom on the trees and it is the most glorious and uplifting sight, may you enjoy all this beauty and may it bring you peace and harmony within.
Margaret and Graham
April is here...
April is a month of transition. It arrives when winter ends and spring begins, symbolising a period of rebirth.
April is named after the Greek Goddess of love, Aphrodite. In the Roman calendar, the fourth month April is spelt Aprilis, meaning "To open." The name Aprilis, then, fits April because in so many places in the northern hemisphere April is the month when trees and flowers begin to bloom and go on to flower.
If you have any words that you would like to share with others, then send them in to Margaret at; email@example.com
Messages Of Light
At the bottom of our garden I have my fairy corner which I have spoken about here before and it is a very special and sacred place. There are times when I am drawn to go and stand there because I know that there are communications to be received. Several days ago I was called to go there and as I gazed upon an elder tree which graces this corner I watched with great joy at the reflection of the Sun upon the crystals which I had hung upon it and rainbows were radiated around. The thought came into my mind that I needed to hang more crystals upon the tree and then I realised that that thought had been given to me by the elder tree itself.
All trees carry such great wisdom for they are living libraries of light and the elder tree is magnificent and its name says it all. As I stood in Communion with it it gave me the words crystal tree and it showed itself covered in a multitude of crystals and what a sight it was. The energy I could feel from this vision was so powerful, so incredibly healing and the tree asked that I share this with others so come with me and I will take you to the crystal tree, the elder tree, the elder who knows so much.
Allow yourself to calm your mind and let the world fall away from you as you enter into the deepest recesses of yourself, as you do this you will find that you become quieter and quieter within for you are entering into sacred space.
You then look before you and you find yourself standing beneath a very old elder tree and hanging from its branches are crystals and gemstones of every description and the light of these is reflected around creating radiance like you have never seen before. Rainbows are constantly moving around you and everywhere you look you see the light.
First of all you go and hug the tree and you feel the heart of the tree within its trunk merge with your heart and you hear its heartbeat as clear as your own. The elder tree then instructs you in what you must do and it asks you to choose crystals and gemstones from the tree and you will know exactly which ones to pick. When you have gathered these beautiful gems in your hands you sit down with your back against the trunk of the tree feeling its energy blending with yours.
The tree then asks you to use these crystals with wisdom and you are to place some of them upon your body where you may have pain or discomfort, some you will place in your chakras whilst others you will hold in your hands and they will become like little crystal balls.
When you have done this you feel all the crystal energy sink deep within you and you feel the different vibrations of each crystal as they move through you along pathways to clear and create balance and healing until your whole body is lit up like one huge crystal. The deep peace which emanates from this crystal energy soothes you in your mind and in your body and you are aware of all your energies being realigned and coming into balance.
The feeling you have is like nothing you have experienced before for you are at the centre of a huge brilliant vibrating light with deep peace at its centre and everywhere you look all you can see is the light
You sit within this energy feeling your aura light up with crystal light and you know that if anyone was watching you all they would see would be a huge light beneath the tree.
This is your gift from the elder tree, from its spirit and it also reminds you to use the crystals in your hands as crystal balls to look inside to receive the answers to your questions.
The tree now has a message just for you:
“As you know the Earth is filled with crystals and they create vibrations which resonate to the surface of the land. You do not need to take these crystals to use them in your healing all you need to do is to connect to their realm and you will receive everything you need.
The crystal energies in the Earth are awakening once more and they rise to the surface to reignite the light within you. The crystals you have received from me are now within you and they will shine their light through all your bodies turning that light into crystalline light. If only you could see yourself now with all this crystal energy within you for you would be amazed at how much light you have within.
Look upon me as the tree of life, the source of all knowledge and light so that when you come to me you come to the source to be filled and renewed and re-energised once more. Your physical bodies will change in time to come, this will not be in your lifetime, it will be in the future for the physical bodies of all will become light until eventually you will inhabit bodies of light.
You have only to look at the crystals which hang upon me when the Sun shines upon them and casts rainbows all round and then you can understand the beauty that these wonderful gems bring. Let your body now become a body of light filled to the brim and within that light will be wisdom for light and wisdom are one and the same things. You have come to me and I am an elder for I carry the ancient wisdom and I impart my elder knowledge to you as well as bringing you the light of the crystal realm.
Whenever you pass one of my kind, stop and say good day and as you look upon each one in your mind see it hung with crystals and in this way you will spread the crystal light far and wide and then others who may come and stand beneath my boughs will receive the crystalline healing light too”.
The energy of the trees is at its most potent at this time as the sap rises up the trunk and so we too can feel our own energies ascend when we come into contact with a tree in the spring. The elder tree brings its leaves before many others and so it is one of the first to share its energy. Go and spend some time with these wonderful trees, touch their bark and their emerging leaves and you too will become an elder in your own right and if you follow the guidance of the elder tree you will spread much light by manifesting the crystals on their branches and through this you will bring healing to many, many people.
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:
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 symbolic of the energies of the time and this month I give you a blue grape Hyacinth; this beautiful little bulb produces a gorgeous blue flower which looks like a little Lantern and it is in flower now. Take this flower as a blue Lantern for yourself and let it light the way for you but because it is blue it brings much healing energy and at the same time it connects you to the higher worlds of consciousness.
Different shades of blue bring different meanings but this blue is mid blue and it is the colour of healing. When you need healing or when your mind is in turmoil manifest this flower and hold it like a lamp so that its blue light radiates down upon you from above and you will feel its soothing vibrations fill your aura and you can rest in peace in that blue.
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.

Come with me into a world of crystalline light and this will be the nearest you can experience what it is like when you pass over. There are worlds on the other side which looks very much like the Earth but the light is different for it is the most beautiful radiant crystalline light.
See before you a door made of clear crystal and the handle is made of a Ruby, this tells you that this is not only the door to the crystal realm but it is also the door to the heart for the Ruby is the stone of the heart.
You open the door and step across the threshold and you see before you a most beautiful scene, what you see before you are gardens and hillsides and fruit trees and blossom trees but everything you look at is made of crystalline light and the colours are more vivid than any you have ever seen before. You journey through this land and as you do the crystalline light upon the plants gathers upon your clothing so that you receive the light of this wonderful place.
You eventually come to a chair in the shape of a flower and it is made of pure crystal; you sit upon this chair soaking up the healing vibrations of all the plants and trees around you. You then realise you’re not alone as a being made of light comes before you and offers you a chalice filled with crystalline water; you drink deeply from this and as you do you feel as though you are being nourished in mind, body and soul and you feel as though you are coming back to life in a new way.
Your new companion joins you and begins to speak to you and asks that you share any troubles or concerns or any questions with them and they will give you answers to all those things.
When your time here is complete you retrace your steps and go through the crystal door once more but as you do this and look down at yourself you will see that you are covered in crystal light for you will have brought this back with you.
We have recently set up a YouTube channel to share healing messages so if you would like to have a listen to them here is the link:
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.
