Myrrhophore

Happy Magdalene Monday. 9th October

Today’s card from my Magdalene Rose Oracle is: Myrrhophore ~ As a Myrrhophore you are a guardian of sacred oils.

Expanded message: When women were priestesses in Ancient Egypt, Greece and Avalon, part of their training was the sacred art of anointing. Such women were called Myrrhophores. Mary Magdalene is the most famous. We are all familiar with the story of the woman with the Alabaster jar which was filled with the most precious oil Spikenard. The Bible contains accounts of Mary Magdalene anointing Yeshua’s feet at the last supper before the crucifixion.

The name Myrrhophore translates as ‘myrrh-bearer’. Myrrhophores were the holy women and priestesses who healed with sacred oils; they also helped people make their transition into the Summerland by preparing and embalming the body after death. Myrrhophores of our time are Magdalenes, members of the Sisterhood of the Rose – Aromatherapists and Energy Healers who work from the heart at a soul level on their clients; this can include massage and anointing. Anointing is a sacred blessing made with devotion and with healing intent; it can release blocks, guilt, fear, shame and attachments and is good for our health and well-being. In Biblical times it was tradition that when a young woman was due to marry, her family would gift her an Alabaster box/jar/container filled with ointment.

Working with Sacred oils and anointing: Study as an Aromatherapist or Myrrhophore, work with sacred oils. Invoke Mary Magdalene, the Ancient Mothers, and the Myrrhophores, to bless your oil with love, light and healing. Sing or chant over your oils to activate them. Gently anoint the part of the body that needs a blessing or healing, including the heart, womb, hara, hands, wrists, throat, forehead, crown, feet, and ankles.

Affirmation: I am healed and anointed by the light of Mary Magdalene.

Essential oil: Spikenard, Myrrh, Rose, Jasmine, Angelica.
