Return of the Myrrhophores

A long, long time ago, there was an ancient tradition of women who worked with sacred oils for the highest good of All. These women were called Myrrhophores, also known as myrrh-bearers or mistresses of the oils. They were priestesses of an even older order whose time has returned and is with us once again.


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 'other side'. The Myrrhophore would hold a vigil (usually three days) whilst praying and uttering the intonation of the oil. The combination of softly spoken voice and perfume healed the wounds in the soul caused by events not only in this life but also in the past. 🌹


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, and the tradition is one.


Following in her footsteps, using my nose to sense 'the way'. Her soft warm indentations reveal the delicate way each footfall has landed. Her fingers have brushed the tips of the wheat in perfumed adoration. She is in love with the land. Every footfall, every fingertip, every breath is a gesture of aromatic blessings.


I am told the Oil, is the Temple where they reside. I must travel the length of this balm to reach the door - upon which I must knock - and enter.


The Temple of the Oil is where everything shall become known.

Family Constellation Work - what is it and how can it help me?

I watched a fantastic show last night called Love, Sex & Goop with my partner, Dan and in episode 5 they dive into a form of therapy called Family Constellation. Goop is of course Gwyneth Paltrow's holistic organisation who made this show. 


Anyhow, the Family Constellation is a potent therapy method which was developed by German psychotherapist, Bert Hellinger. It's principles are rooted in a therapeutic approach designed to help reveal the hidden dynamics in a family or relationship in order to address any stressors impacting these relationships and heal them. If you have Netflix, I highly recommend watching this show. If you are curious to read more on this approach, you may enjoy reading Goop's interview with the facillitator featured on the show, Kato Wittich over on their blog here.


 

If you feel called to dive deep into the truth of your soul, I am available for 1-1 shamanic soul healings. See my services section for details or contact me directly if you have any questions. 

Love & healing, 

Lisa

Foraging in November

Dan and I have had the good fortune of living by a wonderful, vast heath and woodland in Dorset over the summer months and this has really piqued my interest in foraging again, especially so as it's a lovely pursuit to do with another after my many years wandering alone!


I absolutely love Robin Harford and his work and teachings. I highly recommend his blog if you too have a passion to connect more in with the astonishing abundance of wild food and medicines we are always provided with by our beloved Gaia.
