'A garden enclosed is my sister, my spouse; a spring shut up, a fountain sealed. Thy plants are an orchard of pomegranates, with pleasant fruits; camphire, with spikenard. Spikenard and saffron; calamus and cinnamon, with all trees of frankincense; myrrh and aloes, with all the chief spices: A fountain of gardens, a well of living waters, and streams from Lebanon.'
Song of Songs - 4: 12-15
Sacred Oils form part of an ancient mystery school tradition that dates back 4000 years.
These oils are nothing to do with modern aromatherapy, but are powerful tools for deep transformation, healing and expanding consciousness.
Throughout history, certain oils have been used to invoke, initiate, bless and to dedicate oneself to a higher purpose.
Long ago there were women healers who worked sacredly and mystically with fragrant oils made from resins, woods, flowers and roots—these women were called myrrhophore, which means 'myrrh-bearer'. Also known as a 'mistress of the oil', the teachings that the women were entrusted with came from ancient priestess teachings going back even before Mary the Magdalene's induction into this wisdom.
Desert woman, mystic priestess, and sacred goddess, Mary the Magdalene is a powerful archetype for healing, blessing, sacred sexuality, the feminine mysteries, and the wisdom teachings of the ancients. She was a Myrrhophore who used oils to bless, heal and initiate others.
Most famous for having anointed the feet of Christ, Mary was at that time a high priestess myrrhophore who carried this lineage and taught its traditions to other women.
A woman who was initiated into this practice worked as a healer in the temples assisting others for their highest good, and for the good of the world.
The primary healing role of myrrhophores is to use sacred oils to realign people with their true soul essence, and to heal soul wounds caused by events not only in this life, but also in previous lives.
This myrrh-bearing tradition has its earthly roots in the ancient temples of Egypt, and is still kept alive by a few practitioners today. However, the oil itself is the High Priestess and gateway to the inner temple. Mary Magdalene was a myrrhophore. Isis was a myrrhophore. Cleopatra, Hatshepsut - the names are many, but the tradition is one.
The myrrhophore not only works with dis-ease in the spirit and soul but also the disharmony within the environment. She tunes in to the subtle discordance and acknowledges its unrest. Turning to the oils, and its pure expression of the Divine, she offers herself as a bridge, bringing the gift of wholeness and healing.
Originally, the work of these women was to anoint those approaching death and to prepare the way for the soul to soar. The sacred oil would realign people with their true soul essence, and carry them to the other side. The myrrhophore would hold a vigil, usually three days, whilst praying and uttering the intonation of the oil.
Now, in modern times, Myrrhophores are still healer priestesses in one form or another and are well practised in energy medicine. They use their inner vision (the eyes of spirit) to read energy fields, as well as to assess the core energetic system of their clients, so as to heal and make whole the spirit and soul.
While the Myrrhophore tradition has primarily been associated with the use of sacred oils during the dying process, it also applies to all of our big threshold moments where there is a death of the ego, death of the personality, and the death of an old way of living. These are the thresholds that humanity is crossing right now and the calling to many to reawaken this tradition is strong and relentless.
One of the first lessons that a myrrhophore has to learn is to access the nous, which is the wisdom of the heart and soul. It's the basis of everything we learn and understand in working with the soul. It's the divine intelligence that lives within us and is channelled from the Divine.
The Greeks called this metis: an intuitive intelligence that's often attributed to women. Sacred oils connect us to the energy of the Divine.
Today, more and more women are being called to this ancient tradition to reawaken the wisdom from a forgotten faith. This course offers a rare glimpse of this work.
This training stirs awake the almost forgotten path of the Myrrhophore. For many who take this course, it's an experience of reawakening this ancient tradition and accessing their inner library of knowledge and wisdom.
In these energies, I invite you to join me for:
A 2 day exploration with the ancient myrrhophore teachings as we recreate the sisterhood of myrrh bearers and learn to communicate with each of the precious oils that we will be working with, experiencing them as sacred, living spirits.
Activations and the wisdom teachings of the Magdalene will help us to connect on the deepest of levels with the oils, and with the celestial, divine energies of the universe.
The workshop will consist of sacred connection through guided meditations to bring about healing, empowerment, personal messages and an integration of the divine feminine energies within oneself.
