Welcome to the January 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.
We would like to wish you all a very happy New Year; may it be a time of peace, healing and greater awakening.
We begin the year with a Soul Retreat at Overton-On Dee near Wreham on January 26th so if you would like to spend a day in the company of like-minded souls, sharing, loving and healing in the presence of Mary Magdalene it would be wonderful to have you join us. The details are on the website and the link is below.

Soul Retreat, January 26th Overton-On Dee near Wrexham
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
As I am sure that you know I have a great passion for flowers and I always have done since I was a young child scrambling down the cliffs to pick pink sea thrift in my home town of South Shields. The flowers have always held a very special place in my life and to me they are Earth Angels. They bring me many miracles and always have done and often miracles are found in the little things of life.
I find it very astonishing that sometimes I bring flowers in and place them on the kitchen windowsill where I can gaze at them constantly to find that they last a long time. Recently Graham and I were given three roses by a beautiful lady who also loves flowers and these were shop bought roses which don’t last very long and yet after two weeks they are still blooming and fresh in their vase.
Next to those roses I already had a little vase with a Primrose in it and it had been there so long I can’t even remember when I picked it and it has been there for at least three weeks and that is still fresh also. Six weeks ago a friend gave me two little sprigs of winter flowering jasmine and she said to me that the little yellow flowers are symbolic of the Sun and these flowers would make sure that I always had the Sun with me even during the darkest days of winter. Those two sprigs have flowered constantly bringing the sunshine into my life. I believe in magic and it is these things which I find so magical and miraculous and it never ceases to amaze me of the magic which nature brings to us.
The roses which are blooming on my windowsill are gold and white and I know that their flowering presence is so appropriate as we move into the New Year for this coming year is the year of the rose. The rose is a very special flower, it is a symbol of the soul and it is a symbol of the heart but more than anything it is in its word which we find the most meaning for the word rose means to rise up and in our spiritual journey we are constantly rising up in consciousness, this is Ascension and this is what this next year will bring to everyone who is determined to find their own personal Ascension.
Ascension is not some deeply mystical thing; it is about becoming more yourself than you ever have been before to finally shed all your layers and reveal your true light and your true self. It is about following your heart and doing what is right for you not what other people think is right and not what you think you should be doing; it is only about what you feel you should do. The more you become authentic, the more grounded you become, the more present you are upon the Earth and the more you ascend into the light. Ascension is not a way-out cosmic drifting into the light it is about becoming fully embodied in the light of truth and in the light of your true self here now upon the Earth and for this coming year it is the rose which is the symbol of this process.
There is another meaning to the rose and that is it is a symbol of Mary Magdalene and so this flower which is the essence of female energy is one and the same as Mary Magdalene who is the essence of the divine feminine returned to the planet to create balance. Someone asked me recently if the presence of the Magdalene was not Mary Magdalene herself and that it was just what she stands for. I answered her that it is both for her personal presence has returned and she works through myself and many others but there is also the Magdalene vibration which has flooded our planet in recent years and continues to increase in its potency and this is all about the awakening of the female aspect of both men and women where intuition and nurturing will now come to the fore. The Magdalene vibration is about putting right the injustices which have been done and are still being done and bringing them into the light so that the healing can begin for both men and women and so that women can stand in equality with a voice to be heard.
This process is still in its infancy for the world has become so out of balance but it is changing and it is now changing at a very fast rate even if you cannot see it. This year is one of a huge influx of energy and that energy is the energy of the rose for the time of the rose has come. For each of you who are committed and determined to find yourself and find deep healing then this is your greatest opportunity yet to stand up and say here I am, take me as I am, I will follow my heart and I will speak my truth and if things or people fall away from you when you do this you will trust that it is for your highest good and for theirs too.
Many of you work with the rose and it brings you together right across the planet and you feel the community of its light as you are joined in the heart with others who work for the good of all and for the evolution of the self. So begin this year by immersing yourself in the rose knowing that you are also immersing yourself in the vibration of Mary Magdalene and you will feel deep within you a stirring and an awakening where you know you have finally got to the point where you can truly heal.
Connect to the rose and connect to Mary Magdalene and know that it is not only the rose which will enfold you in its blessings but also Magdalene too. Today I came across a message given to me dated July 19th, 2013 and this was one year after I was first introduced to Magdalene. This message was given to me by my teacher who has now passed and I will share it with you because I know it was no coincidence that I found it today because this message applies to now and to this day. I have left out personal references to myself but I certainly feel that this is for now.
“And in the beginning there was light beyond the eyes of man
within the light there were visions which foretold her second coming within the world for this time of which her disciples would express her desires into the world.
Many wait for this day of truth, the beginning and rebirth into a greater understanding.
Many sisters of light will share the light for they are familiar, they are a soul family”.
You are each a petal of the rose and together you make one huge and beautiful bloom and as you reconnect to one another and to Mary Magdalene and to her vibration you will send your rose perfume out into the world and it will create a raising of consciousness and healing for many hearts.
This feels so important and the energy which is there and available to you to use for your own personal evolution and for your service to humanity is enormous. There is no turning back now for the tide has already turned and we are already on our way to a new Earth but first there must be a new self within each one of us where there is no judgement and no lack of self-love and no self-deprecation, there will only be love and acceptance.
Many years ago my mother wanted to give me a gift of a plant and so I chose an old English rose called Spirit Of Freedom because I so desperately wanted to have peace of mind and feel freedom within myself. I still have that rose and it continues to share its beauty with me and I still have the same desire for peace and freedom within. Let the rose now show you the way to your own freedom and the greatest freedom of all is to be yourself. This is not about becoming some great spiritual being detached from the world and meditating for hours on end it is about being here now fully present with our feet planted upon mother Earth and looking in the mirror and saying, this is me, warts and all and I am magnificent and if you can do this your soul will dance for joy for it will have attained its freedom x
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 rose for it couldn’t be any other flower. The rose I give to you is a particular favourite of mine and it is called Rambling Rector. It is a beautiful huge rambler filled with many beautiful white flowers with golden centres. Whenever you have white and gold together you are working with the essence of divinity. This rose brings not only god and goddess but it also brings the symbolism of its name. The word rambling means to travel and the Rector is the priest so this year spread your wings and with the help of this little rose see yourself as the priest or priestess spreading your wisdom far and wide. Whenever you need to spread your wings or speak your spiritual truth then connect to this rose or place a sprig of it over your heart and you will be inspired and your wings will open wide to allow you to fly free.
Feel the perfume of the rose surround you and take in this vibration so that you are filled from head to toe with it. As you do this you feel lighter and lighter and you begin to lift up into the air. You float upwards high into the sky and you look down at the Earth below.
As you look down you can see yourself and you observe all that you are and you observe the life you are living. You are then filled with realizations of the changes you must make because you are viewing yourself and your life from a greater height and a greater distance and so you can see clearly what needs to be done.
You resolve within yourself to acknowledge the changes you must make and you are filled with a great sense of excitement because you know that you are ready for change but it is only you who can make those changes.
As you look around you become aware that you are not alone and you see many other souls rising up and gathering around you and you all gather together filled with the perfume of the rose, each one of you a petal within this magnificent bloom. Eventually collectively you have created the shape of a giant rose and as you look into the centre of it there stands Mary Magdalene. She stretches out her hands and a blue Ray of light emanates outwards covering every one of you and touching you all deeply in the heart and as she does this the whole community of you turns into one huge blue rose.
This blue light brings you great healing and great peace and you also feel as never before that you are connected to many others upon this path and you know these links will never be broken. As you all connect together a shooting star passes above you, a portent of new life and new beginnings and as you gaze upon its trailing light you make a wish and you make your intentions to create the life you truly want.
