Magdalene Priestess Training Testimonials:

 

Honouring and living in the energy of the Divine Feminine is what many women (and men) seek these days.  This is certainly what I was looking for when I came across Lauri’s website and her course on training to be a Magdalene Priestess.  I particularly wanted to learn more about the Mary portrayed in the Bible, but without the religious dogma. 

And this is where Lauri has presented a series of workshops that have captivated me for the last 8 months.  It is a safe environment where I can release my internal struggles whilst Lauri supports and guides me with compassion and a deep knowing of exactly what I need on my journey to becoming an enlightenment woman and Priestess.

Mary H, New Zealand

 

The Magdalene Priestess training program has enabled me to understand myself through the eyes of the Magdalene energy. To see my magic. My gifts that I always knew where there, but could never own them. 

Through the program I feel I can share this gifts with others to help heal and support through a Divine Love and understanding that we are all one.  Allowing each of us to share our uniqueness and giftedness, and give back to the Divine Universe, and the Divine in all us. “

Maria De Robertis Geltrude

 

I have found all the levels and layers of the Priestess training to be deep and truly helpful in my life long search for growth and connection with the Source. It has taught me to listen to my inner awareness and affirmed universal truths  in beautiful ,poetic ways. I am grateful for this and having Lauri’s feedback on personal issues when working on the classes. I’d highly recommend these classes to anyone seeking a depth and inner awareness to  enhance their lives and find meaning in a difficult world. Thank you.

Over the past several years, I did so much spiritual research that I literally researched myself into a “Dark Night of the Soul.” Just recently, for the first time, I prayed to my women ancestors for direction and within days I was led to Lauri Ann Lumby’s ‘Temple of the Magdalene Priestess Training Program.’ This training is one of the best gifts I have ever given myself! It has presented me with a new direction in life, opened new doors of spiritual thought and ways of being for me, and reconnected me not only with the Divine itself, but the Divine within my OWN SELF as well. 

And Lauri is a true “kindred spirit.” She is encouraging and completely genuine, and offers personal feedback through the online classroom to each and every one of her students, as well as privately via personal sessions. She is a true mentor. I truly mean all of these words from my heart.”

Kimberly E., Texas

 

The Magdalene Priestess Training was life changing for me.  After having Mary come to me in a shamanic vision six months prior I had begun to explore her world intensely, finally coming across this wonderful experience.  The training was rich, filled with love, challenging and insightful and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to walk a path with Mary Magdalene as a modern woman or Priestess.

I’m very grateful first off to know Lauri for at least a decade. I have had the privilege of taking all of her courses. The Magdalene Priestess course solidified an anointing into a higher ideation of woman elevated to priestess, goddess and queen. Mary Magdalene has been forgotten, shamed and misrepresented for millennia and it is time to receive the energy, purity and strength of this mystical woman’s desire – all she embodied and claimed – the truth of who she was and who you are. I highly recommend this course as well as any of Lauri’s other work or books.

The Magdalene Priestess Training has been life-changing for me! This training has helped me change my perspective on things happening in my life and how I can discern my gifts and live my most authentic life. Her classes are so empowering to women in a world where we are taught to keep our heads down and our feelings to ourselves. Honestly one of the very best things I have ever done for myself!

Kerry E.

 

As a business owner, nutrition counselor, and and thought leader in the health care field, I chose to take the Magdalene Priestess Training with Lauri Lumby. I am always interested in learning how to become the best version of myself, and also empower those around me to do the same – to use one’s gifts and express them without regret! I’ve found that on this journey, taking a deeper look at my calling in life and god-given gifts has allowed me to thrive in areas that feel natural to me. Never did I imagine that someday I would be a business owner, boss, speaker, writer, and figure of influence in the community. With that being said, taking care of oneself in order to succeed at those things is key. Lauri has taught me to practice self care, claim my needs and boundaries in life, and it is through her course that I have grasped a better understand of who I am. Knowing my gifts and utilizing what’s unique about myself is very freeing and empowering. And being able to share that love and message with those around me in my professional and personal life is an honor. There’s no need to compare when you know who you, what you bring to this world, and love yourself completely. Thank you, Lauri!

As I study each course in my Magdalene Priestess Training I go WoW, this is just what I was looking for, and then along comes the next course and I go WoW WoW again.

My mission and purpose on this human plane is LOVE. Pure and simple, I am here to be LOVE and live from that LOVE.  This is a truth I have always known, but it has taken me 53 years to unravel from the conditioning that sought to tell me otherwise.

The same is true for you. You are here for the single purpose of love.  Period!  There is no other purpose to the human experience.  We are here to learn how to love.

This is the truth that has been taught by every single spiritual teacher from Abraham and Sarah, to Isaac and Ishamel, to Moses and Miriam, to Jesus and Mary Magdalene, the Buddha, Kuan Yin, Mohammed, Black Elk, the Thirteen Grandmothers, Amma, the Dalai Lama, and every other spiritual teacher we might try to name. They all taught the same thing (sometimes using different words) – LOVE.

We are here for the purpose of love and the simple truth is that LOVE IS A CHOICE. It really is that simple.  While simple, it doesn’t mean the choice is easy.  In order to choose love, we first have to unravel from all the ways in which we have been conditioned by fear.  Fear that has been taught to us by:

  • Our tribe
  • Our church
  • Our government
  • Our education system
  • The medical system
  • Corporations
  • Advertising
  • Banks and other financial institutions
  • Our culture
  • Our family
  • Our friends
  • Our teachers
  • Our pastors
  • Etc. etc. etc.

We do not need to look very far to see how we have been conditioned how to fear. Unless we are face to face with a hungry lion, or a man with a gun, fear is simply a matter of conditioning. Oh yes, our survival fears are very real, but the rest are simply lies told to us by those who are either in a place of fear themselves, or who have found that they can manipulate and control others through the use of fear.  Shame on them!

But we have a choice. We can CHOOSE LOVE instead of the lies we’ve been told.  We can choose love instead of fear.  And if we don’t have the tools to assist us in choosing love, Authentic Freedom.Love is here to help.

But Authentic Freedom cannot do this alone! We need your help.  The first step in that help is to let the world know that Love is a choice, and to invite the world to make that choice.  Here is what you can do and my invitation to you:

Go our CHOOSE LOVE Facebook page HERE. Once there, like and then follow our page.  As a follower of the page, you will receive notifications of “Choose Love” posts to that page.  We then invite you to SHARE those “Choose Love” posts on your own social media sites.  You may have to first save the post from the Choose Love page to your own image files or copy and post if it is a text post.  By sharing these posts, you are part of the “Choose Love” revolution.  Thank you in advance for your support and for your help in choosing love in a world conditioned by fear!

Creating the World We Want to Live In

As the patriarchal world in its death throes becomes more and more divisive and more and more violent, I have become increasingly aware of the fact that THAT is a world I do not want to live in. I did not come here to fight or to hate my fellow human beings. I came here to love.  It is for this reason that like my Tuatha de Danaan ancestors before me, I am deciding to “turn sideways into the light.”  I am choosing to step away from the world of hatred and fear and into a world of my own creation made only out of love.

This does not mean that I am not aware of the dire issues facing our world or that I am not using my own gifts to support the betterment of the world. It means that I am no longer engaging in the violence, the arguments or the fights and for the sake of my own well-being, I am disconnecting from the places where this violence runs rampant (ie: Facebook).  For the sake of my own soul, I refuse to place myself in harms-way or in an environment that might otherwise tempt me into fear and hatred and away from love.

In choosing love, I am creating the world I want to live in – far away from the loud, screaming, self-centered and narcissistic world that begs for our attention. Instead, I am tending to myself and in doing so, creating the foundation upon which I can be a source of loving support for others who want to do the same.  As more and more of us make this choice, we are depriving the patriarchal/hierarchical world of its food-source, thereby hastening its death.  (Hurray!).

THIS is how we create the new world as the old world lies there dying:

  • We become diligent in choosing love instead of fear.
  • We recognize when our own fears are being triggered and we do the work of healing and transforming these fears.
  • We learn to identify our needs, claim them and set boundaries around them.
  • We turn away from our conditioning and toward the voice of our soul.
  • We recognize that the material world has absolutely no bearing on our happiness and that peace and joy can only come from within.
  • We find the practices that support us in finding peace within and we DO THEM!
  • We say no to that which causes us harm and yes to what supports our own wellbeing.
  • We connect with others who want to live from love and we support each other in this endeavor.
  • We walk gently upon this planet.
  • We treat ourselves with kindness and then we share that kindness with others.

Hmmmmmm. As I write these words, the following scripture comes to mind.  Perhaps Isaiah was not prophesying the coming of just one man – but meant his words as an invitation for all of us and as a recipe for building a new world:

Here is my servant, whom I uphold,
my chosen, in whom my soul delights;
I have put my spirit upon him;
he will bring forth justice to the nations.
He will not cry or lift up his voice,
or make it heard in the street;
a bruised reed he will not break,
and a dimly burning wick he will not quench;
he will faithfully bring forth justice.
He will not grow faint or be crushed
until he has established justice in the earth;
and the coastlands wait for his teaching.

Thus says God, the Lord,
who created the heavens and stretched them out,
who spread out the earth and what comes from it,
who gives breath to the people upon it
and spirit to those who walk in it:
I am the Lord, I have called you in righteousness,
I have taken you by the hand and kept you;
I have given you as a covenant to the people,[a]
a light to the nations,
    to open the eyes that are blind,
to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon,
from the prison those who sit in darkness.

 I am the Lord,that is my name;
my glory I give to no other,
nor my praise to idols.
See, the former things have come to pass,
and new things I now declare;
before they spring forth,
I tell you of them.

Isaiah 42: 1-9

 

Meditation Activity: Prayerfully re-read the passage from Isaiah above, replacing “He” with your own pronoun….or (making it more universal) with They. As you are reading this passage in a more personal way, how does it now speak to you?  How are you being called to fulfill this teaching? How are you being called to create your own world anew and in doing so, showing others how to do the same?

Unchoosing Fear

Each and every moment of each and every day we choose which world we are living in. We are either choosing to live in the world of fear or the world of love. If we are choosing the world of fear, we are easily manipulated by the world that is dying and in the midst of its own collapse – a world that is ruled by fear, motivated by the desire for power and control.  If we are choosing the world of love, we are no longer vulnerable to the fear-based world and live in a world where there is peace, contentment, joy and faith and trust that all is unfolding in service to the higher good.  What world do you want to live in?  What world are you choosing?

Choosing the world of LOVE begins by unchoosing fear. Yes, we really DO have the power to unchoose fear (though the current patriarchal/hierarchical structures that are dying do not want us to know this, and neither does the media, or advertising).  Unchoosing fear begins with knowing how to identify fear in action, a skill few of us know how to do.  In fact, the old and dying structures did a really good job of teaching us how to fear and all the things we should be afraid of – death, war, violence, hunger, homelessness, hell, rejection, condemnation, and that we would not be loved unless we are a size 4, driving a Lexus and living the life of the Kardashians.  As such, unchoosing fear starts when we STOP listening to the old, fear-based, power and control driven institutions and start listening to our hearts instead.

The next step in unchoosing fear is being willing and able to identify what fear actually feels like and knowing when our fears are being triggered. Unchoosing fear then invites us to identify all the behaviors we tend to engage in when we are afraid – gluttony (over and under consumption), lust (giving our power away or trying to manipulate others through fear), wrath (harboring resentments, seeking vengeance), envy, greed (withholding our gifts or hoarding our resources), sloth (refusing to use the brain God gave us to reason, discern and exercise our truth), and pride.  Finally, unchoosing fear invites us to CEASE from engaging in our fear-driven actions and do the cold, hard work of healing the fears that causes those behaviors in the first place.

Choosing to live in the world of Love begins by unchoosing fear. How are you unchoosing fear so that you can live in a better world?

Lauri Ann Lumby supports you in unchoosing fear and choosing the world of love through one-on-one mentoring, online classes, workshops, retreats and writing.  Learn more about Lauri and her offerings HERE.

What World Do You Live In?

In the human experience, there are two worlds – the world of fear and the world of love. The former, is ruled by fear through power and control and manifests as division, separation, judgment, which then creates prejudice, discrimination, ignorance, hatred, violence and war.  The latter is ruled by love through curiosity, wonder, the desire to learn and grow, to understand and to connect.  The latter produces community, union, peace and harmony.

Which of these two worlds are you living in? Is the world you are living in defined by fear or is it known by love?  Whether you are living in a world defined by fear or one ruled by love, it has been your choice.

We choose the world we are living in and we choose it by where we place our energy and our attention. When we give our energy and attention to fear, when we allow the fear that is “out there” to guide us, we have chosen to live in the world of fear.  When we instead, give our energy and attention to love and refuse to give our energy and attention over to the world of fear, we live in the world of love.

It really is this simple.

Fear begets fear. Love begets love.  Period.

What world are you choosing to live in?

We Choose the World We Live In

Before man are life and death, good and evil, whichever he chooses shall be given him.

Sirach 15: 17

Every single moment of every single day, we choose the world we are living in. There is nothing “new” about this choice.  New Agers and those from the New Thought, Starseed and Ascension communities in their foundational message about choice are simply echoing the wisdom of the ancients.  Moses was given the key to this truth. Isaiah and Jeremiah gave the Israelites this choice.  Jesus made this choice and taught his female and male disciples how to do the same.  Mary Magdalene made this choice and became witness to the risen Christ. St. Francis of Assisi made this choice and transformed the Church as did Teresa of Avila, Julian of Norwich and Hildegard of Bingen.  Meister Eckhart made this choice as did Gandhi, Mother Theresa and the Dalai Lama.

We choose the world we are living in and that choice is as simple as choosing between love and fear. This choice between love and fear then produces the way in which we perceive, approach and live in our world – are we choosing life or death, good or evil?  Again, it all boils down to one simple choice – love or fear.

When we choose love over fear, we soon discover:

  • There is nothing to fear.
  • There is no reason to hate.
  • We have no enemies.
  • The world is beautiful and peaceful.
  • People are inherently kind to one another.
  • Instead of fearing those who differ from us, we become curious and long to get to know them.
  • We come together in communion instead of building walls between us.
  • We see possibility instead of defeat.
  • We see endings as new beginnings.

It really is this simple.

My choice is for love. What are you going to choose?
