On the Isle of Mull in Scotland, I received a beautiful gift from the Great Mother.
Two years ago in September of 2016, I visited Scotland and many of her sacred isles on a specific mission with eighteen woman and a baby. We gathered in Scotland to anchor in the divine feminine, especially the divine feminine as connected with Mary Magdalene. Each woman was spiritually attuned to Mary Magdalene and the Christ essence in such a way as to create the poignant conditions for us to create a sacred container for extraordinary experiences. I received many incredible gifts and experiences on that trip! Here’s a sweet story about a spontaneous ceremony with three rainbows also connected with the Great Mother from that same trip.
Our amazing leader, Alison McLean of the Scottish McLean clan, was powerfully spiritually aligned and fearless in leading us to sacred sites. She guided us to experience Scotland in a way of opening ourselves to deepen into our spiritual lives as divine women. Many spontaneous powerful ceremonies occurred on our journey.
My visit from the Great Mother was unexpected!
About halfway through our trip, we stayed at a beautiful farm house on the Isle of Mull for many days. On one of these days, we had a little down time, which was rare. I decided to take a nap in the room I was sharing with a remarkable woman known as Goldenbear.
Almost immediately as soon as I came into a place of relaxation, I was taken on a journey into the earth. This was more than a dream or what some might call a lucid dream for I could feel my body while I was on the journey.
During my inner spiritual journeys, there are often no words spoken, yet the information is simply known. I knew the Great Mother was leading me to her temple deep inside the earth. The space was mostly dark except for light shining around an altar.
I felt the Great Mother’s presence all around me, and yet my sense was she was also hovering just up to my left as a witness to the process.
At the center of the earthen temple was a sacred altar. The altar was waist high, and made of polished stone unlike anything I had ever seen before. The stone seemed to be made of hard sandstone, and was glowing with golden light from the inside. At the center of the altar was a large polished lingam.* The astonishing aspect was atop the lingam was a large clitoris! The clitoris was a sweet stone mound, seeming more like flesh than stone, and embraced the tip of the lingam — the divine feminine was embracing the divine masculine on this amazing altar!
The Great Mother’s earthen temple, at that moment, was in celebration to sacred union!
At the base of the altar was a carved circular pathway cut into the stone about a foot from the base of the lingam. This pathway was similar to a circular water channel, and filled with crystal clear water.
After I pulled my attention from the altar, I noticed several women from our group were surrounding the altar like high priestesses.
Next, the Great Mother gave us Hawthorn berries. One story I know about Hawthorne berries in connection with Mary Magdalene is the story of Joseph of Arimathea traveling with Mary Magdalene and many disciples of “The Way” to England. When they reached Glastonbury, or the Isle of Avalon as it was known at that time, Joseph stuck his staff in the ground prior to climbing Glastonbury hill. Blossoms spontaneously grew from his staff! These were the blossoms of a hawthorn bush.**
Back to the inner journey . . . Each of the priestesses crushed the hawthorn berries between their fingers, and collected it as a wine into small containers. After creating the wine, we offered it to the altar by pouring it atop the clitoris lingam in celebration of divine sacred union! We also poured the hawthorn wine into the circular waterway until the water turned pink and red from the berries.
Then we were instructed, from the Great Mother, to do a dance in celebration of sacred union. Our cups disappeared, and we began dancing. We held out our arms with hands palms up in front of us as if offering our souls to the altar. Then we rocked forward, moving our arms in an upward arc toward the sacred union stone, and turning our hands around palms faced down, we blessed the altar, and rocked back into place. Over and over again we made these devotional movements.
We danced and bathed the altar with the essence of our souls moving out from our hearts and hands. Moving our hips in connection with our feminine power connected with the earth, we danced in this motion for some time. Such jubilation!
When I awoke back into my body from this experience, I felt so blessed to be visited by the Great Mother in such a powerful way. And to also feel the presence of the women in the group coming together to support sacred union with the divine feminine and divine masculine within each of us, and within the earth’s rhythms too! I was in a bit of shock for some time afterward.
The story didn't stop here! The ecstasy was about to arrive!
Many days later, after we had traveled to the sacred Isle of Iona, and left the farm on the Isle of Mull, Alison, our beloved spiritual tour guide, led us to a very sacred place near Fortingall known as The Christic Academy.
The Christic Academy is a field of large stones cropped into groups. Perhaps this doesn’t sound like much, but in Scotland and Ireland stones and standing stones carry their own strong magic. I walked through the gateway stones, or so I felt them to the be a gateway, and over to the third crop further afield. Many women found rocks to be with along the way. In the third crop of stones I noticed one of them calling to me. I hugged it, and placed my third eye on its gritty surface.
After a short while, I saw with my inner eye how the sacred geometry of the Christic Academy was laid out around the stones. Beautiful golden and green interlocking concentric circles created the auric boundary of the land, and led all the way up into the sky creating a dome as well as deep into the earth.
The three crops of stones created a triangle. At the center of the triangle was open field, and was also a portal. A great portal of white light connected the earth with the sky as well as the sacred geometric boundary. Amazing! The vibration of the Christ essence was very strong in the stones, the grass, the sky, and the earth beneath my feet.
We all spent quite a long time there taking in the energy of the land. At one point, it became clear the Great Mother wished for us to do our priestess sacred union dance at the portal. I mentioned this to Alison, and she called a few women who were near to join in.
There were about twelve of us from the group who joined hands, and felt the Christ energy moving from the land and through our bodies. Then we did the dance. We bathed the portal with the love and connection in our hearts. Moving with our hips, and raising our arms then blessing the portal just like in the dream journey!
When we were doing the dance, I felt strong and good. I didn’t think about why we were doing what we were doing. It simply felt good and right. It wasn’t until later I realized we were activating the portal of sacred union within the Christic Academy, the land, the stones, and the sacred geometric field encompassing the area. Wow!
After the dance, many of the women left or went to visit other stones except for me and two other women — Goldenbear and Sophianada. We didn’t speak a word to each other, and simply came together at the center of the portal. We hugged close together, eyes closed, and connected our third eyes together.
Pure ecstasy released from within the portal, within our bodies, and out through the crowns of our heads! Each of us began yipping and hollering feeling the divine ecstasy of the Christ portal bathed in sacred union moving through our entire bodies! We stayed connected for as long as possible: hugging, and yipping allowing the divine ecstasy to move within us and through us.
We were experiencing the immaculate conception of Christ birthing within us!
Then we celebrated by jumping around, dancing, and yipping. For me, the experience was phenomenal. I felt all of the cells of my body lit up with the Christ essence, and also felt attuned to the Christ essence in the stones, the grass, and the portal. Everything was singing with Christ’s delight!
The Great Mother had given me a gift. A gift of sacred union. A gift of everlasting connection with the pure essence of Christ. Activating me with Magdalene's Christic Diamond Heart. There are truly no words to describe my gratitude and humility in receiving such a profound gift. I was very grateful to have shared the Great Mother's gift and the dance with the women on the trip. I feel blessed to have experienced us coming together in spontaneous connection to bathe the Christic Academy, and activate the portal of sacred union.
As I’m reflecting on the experience in writing this, I realize I never asked Goldenbear or Sophianada about their experience. We just walked back to the bus, got on, and went to our next destination. Of course, I was buzzing and buzzing for hours and hours afterward, and it felt like everyone on the bus was singing!
The experience with the Great Mother, and feeling the ecstasy of the Christ essence in All things created the keystone in the bridge of my spiritual life’s journey.
Words cannot express how much joy and humility I felt in becoming so aligned with the Christ essence as a gift from the Great Mother, and to have shared it with divine women. Whew! Tears of joy are arising from within my heart in acknowledging such profound Grace.
In Gratitude, so it is.
