Getting to Know the Goddess Course 2:2

In this lesson, we think about The Maiden, the young Goddess.

I have a fascination for Mary Magdelene and was an early reader of the Holy Blood and Holy Grail and have read around this topic for many years. Perhaps she was a priestess, from a pagan land, who blessed his feet with her perfumed oil prior to his trial and death. New excavations in the Holy Land and historical investigations provide new thinking about the title 'magdala' which means 'tower'. The Magdalene provided the disciples with money, and was first to visit the tomb after the burial of Jesus, so therefore, she had a privileged position within the family that would have been granted to only those women who washed and prepared the body of the deceased.

Chosen Colours 4 U

How everyone loves this dynamic colour which brightens the day. We can almost taste its tang and sweetness and it gives us energy to look upon it and to meditate. Reserve some time to sit comfortably and relax, clear your mind, this is your time to enjoy and savour this moment. Ask the angels who wear this colour to throw their robe upn you, encircling you in its vibrancy. It is life enhancing. It has a power that motivate and energise. Imagine you are floating in a lake of orange coloured water. The sun shining and adding brightness and light to the depth of its colour. 

A morning treat: Carrot juice is just what we need at this time of year! This drink contains carrot with mango added and with a squeeze of lemon and lime, and a sprig of mint. This combination ensures you have a wide variety of vitamins and minerals for you good health at the same time as having a very pleasant drink to waken you. Do you always take your drinks iced? Try your drinks at room temperature. Cold drinks tend to reduce the taste buds ability to fully experience the taste, so drinking at room temperature enables the taste buds to receive the full flavours. Always use a glass, preferably a glass that pleases you. Never drink from plastic or polystyrene which are harmful for the environment

The Colour of 2017 chosen by Pantone Colour Institute, will be the bright, luscious, green of new plant growth. After the greys, browns and blacks that have dominated the fashion world over 2016, this is an exciting colour to major with throughout 2017. We do not allow the fashion world to dictate to us! We choose the colours that uplift our mood and enhance our life. What do we say when we choose this colour? The colour is that of new leaves, so that statement we make is about the importance of new life and health, of freshness and vitality.
Gem stone of the Year for 2017: Peridot is a high quality bright green crysta, known as ' the gem of the sun' and mined in ancient Egypt. It is thought Cleopatra's 'emeralds' were in fact peridot from an island in the Red Sea. It was a stone in Aaron's breastplate and may have been the foundation stone of the New Jerusalem. Found in the Book of Revelations, this is a magnificently powerful crystal with many magical powers. The stones are formed 20-55 miles within in the Earth and thrown to the surface by volcanic eruptions - out of the corse black lava comes a fabulous stone like fresh, juicy green grass. Sometimes, peridots are found in meteorites but these are as rare as hens’ teeth and are very highly prized! It is thought that many stones which have been labelled as ‘emeralds’ are, in fact, peridots, such as the stones in the treasures of the Three Magi in Cologne Cathedral. It is thought that the Emerald Tablet of the Greek God Hermes Trismegistus (also the Egyptian God Thoth) was a peridot and the stone that fell from Lucifer’s crown may have been a peridot, not an emerald as once thought.

Waltham Abbey and the Holy Cross

In the time of King Canute, around the date of 1030, a standard bearer called Tovi owned land in the area of Montacute (locally called Lutegaresberi) near Glastonbury, a very prestigious monastery at the time. A smith on Tovi's land had a dream of a vision over several nights showing a hill top where a great treasure was buried in the ground so, with prayer and fasting, an investigation was organised. A delegation of dignitaries, in procession, singing litanies, went and dug to a depth of forty cubits where the dream suggested, and there a large black stone crucifix was discovered with a smaller one under the right arm and a bell under the left arm and there was also a book of the gospels. These holy objects were placed on a wagon with twelve red oxen and twelve cows. Holy sites were named to the animals, such as Canterbury, Winchester, York, etc., but the oxen failed to make any movement forward. Only when the name of Waltham was called did the cart move forward. Waltham was a tiny church and hunting lodge owned by Tovi and the animals continued walking until they arrived at Waltham when they abruptly stopped. The cross was taken from the cart and erected at the tiny church which was named after the holy cross. Tovi donated his sword to the church. While the workmen were erecting the cross, one accidentally pierced the marble figure and blood was said to have flowed out. Tovi's' wife, Glitha gave many rich treasures, one gold circlet was placed around the thigh of the image and the church which grew in fame, wealth and size, and pilgrims came and miracles were

Spiritual Renaissance

There is a spiritual renaissance taking place within our modern world. If you are a believer in the Afterlife, you are not alone! Millions of people in the world today believe that when our physical body dies that our spirit survives eternally. Thousands of well documented death-bed visions are reported from people who have been resuscitated after clinical death and describe meetings with family and friends in the Afterlife. In the United States and the UK, many hospitals are teaching newly qualified doctors about the importance of spirituality. For instance, Dr Sam Parnia heads ‘Aware’, the world’s largest study into near death experiences. He has found that ten per cent of resuscitated patients report a spiritual experience with life changing consequences. Some scientists, such as the physicist, Klaus Heinemann, are convinced that strange, moving globules of light called spirit orbs (that appear frequently on digital photographs) are spirit entities. International scientists are debating quantum theories that include the possible recognition of spirit worlds.

John Birch

Amazonian Rain-forest activist from the UK, John Birch, has developed an interesting method of raising money for charity! One morning whilst visiting Westminster Cathedral in Central London, John sensed the spirit of Jesus surrounding the entire building. Later that day, he attended an Eckhart Tolle seminar and was inspired to become a facilitator of an Eckhart Tolle Local Silent Group in his area of Blackburn, Lancashire

The Man Who Planted Trees

"Conservators have documented more than 60,000 different species of trees on the planet; of these more than 10,000 are under threat of extinction."
Some time ago, I read a novel titled ‘The Man Who Planted Trees’. Many years later it was made into an award winning not-for-profit film. The story begins when the narrator visits Provence in France during the early years of the twentieth century - a journey that led him into the foothills of the Alps. There, in a lonely and desolate place, a meeting takes place with a shepherd who is planting the acorns from the single oak tree that grows in the area. After the First World War, the war-weary narrator returns to this place and discovers a remarkable oak forest. The old man is in a home for the elderly but described his satisfaction and contentment that his contribution to posterity has a beneficial one.

Durrell Wildlife Charity

The Durrell Conservation Trust is an international charity that protects endangered species from extinction. It is an international charity founded by the naturalist and writer, Gerald Durrell OBE. His entire life was inspired by spending several years as a child on the island of Corfu. Gerald died in 1995 and the Trust is overseen by his wife, Dr Lee Durrell who has continued his outstanding work. Dr Lee Durrell was awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List on Friday 10th June 2011.

The Durrell Wildlife Park, previously known as Jersey Zoo, is a modern day stationary Noah’s Ark where rare species can be bred and studied and returned to the wild where possible. There is a training programme with courses available and education projects are run by highly skilled specialists in species conservation. The Park is open to visitors who wish to see some of the most endangered species in the world. Summer is a favourite time to visit as the breeding programme often reveals newly born rare species, such as the yellow mongoose triplets born this year and the male Black Lion Tamarind that was born by caesarean section, hand reared and syringe fed at the zoo.

Getting to Know the Goddess Course 1:1

I am publishing some of my thoughts on a marvellous course I am taking online with Goddess-Pages, once a paper publication, but moving to the internet. You can find more information on this link:

 The course is practical as well as educational, and has made me think about so many aspects of my life and society in general, as well as put me in touch with antiquity, with womanhood throughout the ages, and about many of the women in my life that have influenced me. I had never thought of ‘Goddess’ as a diminutive word, such as waitress, but She is the original, the first, She was the one and only, and therefore maybe I will attach a prefix such as this when describing Her. 
I have a connection with the Goddess and relate to many of Her archetypes. She is very healing, and when focussing, and meditating on ‘the Lady’ especially in Springtime, as Flora, my meditations are wonderful, and full of images and beauty of all kinds. I love the early archaeological discoveries of the sculptures of the ‘Venus’ types. I am quite tubby, and so I am reflected in these images. I am very concerned about the incredible temples in the Middle East war zones, unexplored, with the ground full of wonders, many, I am sure, would reveal much more about Her. I feel very aggrieved about the archaeological atrocities, despite many being in protected World Heritage sites. (Not to say anything about the animals, and rare species especially,that are badly affected by war, the ecological damage – as well as human suffering beyond our ability to imagine). I am against war, war on people, animals, and the delicate ecology of the planet.
I love living near the forest where I walk my dog each day. Yesterday I saw a muntjack. I love to see the moon low on the horizon, through the trees. I wish I could see it more often. My friend has a home to see the moon rise and set, and the sun rise and set too. Oh How envious I am of this excitement on a daily basis.
I love Glastonbury, Stonehenge and Avebury and many of the standing stones and circles I have visited across the UK and Ireland. I am proud of my Celtic ancestry.
I love my Goddess statues, some bought abroad and some from the British Museum. When female friends come, I will often have a little ceremony to recognise her importance in our life, to restore some of Her influence and power. Today is May Day, Beltane, and I will do for myself a healing ceremony with one of my flowering trees. To stand with my back to the tree, and imagine my consciousness taken through my back and into the trunk of the tree. Stay there to meditate. So steady - eternal a feeling. Nothing to think about, all worries gone. Feeling the sap rising to flower and grow, to provide for the bees and other species. My roots deep and taking up goodness.
I am busy planting and with each plant I honour the earth and what it provides for us and all species, so I respect their habitat, the worms, beetles, spiders, upon which all life depends so delicately in the web of life. 
The poem of Ishtar and Tammuz caused shivers through me.
I have a Carrera marble statue of the Madonna with baby Jesus in her arms in my garden which I bought at great expense many years ago when a beautiful local convent school was demolished. One of the children in the 1950s saw ths Madonna statue move and place the child on the ground which raised its arms to be carried again. The Bishop was called and there was an investigation. No one has seen it move since to my knowledge, including me!
I love the story of Pandora, which is very special to me, but only in some stories does hope remain in the box, and is that a good thing I sometimes wonder!
I am edgy about the chthonic deities, I find them very powerful and I have a dark side to my nature with regards to death which I feel very strongly and was with my mother at her passing. Some meditations don’t work that well for me. I liked the mother meditation provided by the course. ‘I never want to leave you’. The goddess reminds me how extremely beautiful my mother was. A classic beauty! I am too young to ask Her questions. I hear her talk to me and tell me I am perfect and she will never judge or be angry with me. I feel sad for all the things that got in the way between us. I welcome the coming of summer today, Beltane, a good day to start the course. Weather: sunshine mixed with much needed rain. Daffodils have finished, bluebells at their best. Choisia in full bloom. No roses yet. Flora is here! This course is available from
