On The Feast Day of Mary Magdalene July 22 2018
Today is July 22 and amongst many beautiful events that have taken place over the centuries, it is also the Feast Day of Mary Magdalene.
As you know, I've had a kinship with her of sorts for years and this has only been heightened since my trip to France. Why would I then be surprised that she woke me up last night with multiple messages?
Honestly, I'm not.
I'm at my parent's home. Dad decided to have an argument with a water hose.
Water Hose -1
Dad - 0 However his consolation prize is a broken ankle. His surgery is on Tuesday and he will then become bionic; plates and screws are to be added to his human body. Due to a bevy of folks coming in, I'm snuggled in at my honorary aunt's house next door for sleep. It's rather lovely since I have the house to myself; This offers time to detox and more. This part of the story isn't a digression, really, but rather a setting of the stage of what's following:
Phase Two - Magdalene Enters
Many of you may also know that I've a few more oracle decks in me...I've known of a second almost since the first one birthed. I've played with the artwork (it helps inspire me). I've learned I operate in a creative way and often times will start/stop a project until it hits.
It has hit. It's only taken six+ years, but hit she has and with a bit of Magdalene magic, it will be debuting before year's end or shortly thereafter.
Shortly before my departure to France she and I created her magical scent. It is magical. Many reported the powerful loving energy that exuded from it and one went so far to say she was transported to Jerusalem and walking her path while there. So stay tuned; her candle and other essential oil blend offerings will be out within weeks.
Phase Three - Magdalene's Message
Phase Four - Integrating Magdalene's Message
How will I now go about my day and days ahead? Hopefully more inspired and Love focused. I AM creating a large offering of home-made TV dinners for my folks that will make meal preparation much easier as dad recuperates. Each meal, especially going forward, WILL be made with more love and more ease. It's not a race to fill the freezer, but to infuse each and everything made with great LOVE which of course is healing.
Will I work on her deck today? Most likely not as the family is stirring and it is time to close and enjoy the day...with them. Remember, it is not the amount of things you accomplish in one day, it is how you BE.
The Day I met Mary Magadelene July 09 2018
I've had this 'weird' fascination with Mary Magdalene for decades. I have felt connected to her in ways that were unexplainable to most and me at times. I felt saddened and betrayed when I would witnessed her as she had been portrayed for centuries as the harlot and outcast.
Over the years I read. I read a lot, perhaps not as many scholars, but more than the average person. I finally stumbled upon Kathleen McGowan's books starting with The Expected One. These books open me in profound ways that resonated deeply within me. highly recommend.
I became insatiable regarding Mary Magdalene, but it's rather difficult to find books that ring true and portray her as a very strong women, healer and passionate teacher. I searched, found few and kept going.
Fast Forward, ahem, a few years...
I returned from France about one week ago. The trip was indeed a tour of southern, sacred France and followed, in part, the footsteps of Mary Magdalene after her arrival in Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer. The translation of the town is literally to mean:
Saint Marys of the Sea
This beautiful seaside town hosts the infamous bulls and horses; not to mention is recognized as the landing site by millions where Mary Magdalene and her entourage landed after the crucifixion.
It is said that Mary Magdalene, Marie-Salome, Marie-Jacobe, Lazarus amongst other disciples arrived via boat. The iconography is profuse in this town that show 'The Marys' arrival.
Our hotel was literally across the street from the beach where they landed and both mornings I rose early to sit on the rocks along the shore to listen. I did post a variety of pictures and videos along the way in the Facebook group, and many felt the energy there without me providing any suggestions of what they ought to experience.
Mary began speaking softly those mornings. Time slipped into many minutes as I allowed myself to BE and absorb whatever it was that was to be shared. During those two days, it was not much that was noteworthy, with the exception of course that it was indeed Mary Magdalene and we were just getting started.
Mary Magdalene Speaks Louder
We next ventured to St. Baume. St. Baume is the home of St. Maximin and St. Mary Magdalene's Bascilica. Did you know that when a building is 'So and So's Basilica' it is stating that there is a relic of that saint within that building? Well now you do.
It was within the crypt that Mary Magdalene broke me open. It is in this basilica that her skull is encased in a beautiful reliquary behind an ornate iron, gated barrier.
Now let me preface this by saying, I'm an empath and therefore sensitive to energies surrounding me. However, I am very aware of this and find myself crying infrequently and only on occasions of pure love (as opposed to conditional love) and extreme sadness. Soooo... having the set the stage, hopefully, that I really don't cry at the drop of the hat....
I cried and cried profusely every. single. time. I went into the crypt.
We discovered (no we really didn't discover, but were there when shared) that there are two crosses etched into the floor of the crypt. The crosses are Cathar crosses; meaning each 'leg' of the cross is equal length. Balance.
These two specific crosses are the locations where ley lines merge that connect with the Root and Solar Plexus Chakras. One may lay on the floor (I did multiple times) or stand on one cross at a time. It was during these practices that healing began to take place for all involved. One would lay on the floor while four; it always worked out to four others, would hold space.
Healing and Mary Magdalene
As each goddess took their spot on the center, I was told how to send the energy to not only the one on the floor, but to the group at large. She went onto use me as a conduit to help with a healing session with my new BFF - my roommate. I honestly have no idea what transpired, but she who 'doesn't feel energy' was blown away afterwards.
That makes two of us.
As we boarded the bus later, I had a quiet moment or two and Mary began to offer information for a healing protocol. It is still unfolding, but for those that I've shared it with have come back with the comment of... WOW!
What I have gleaned in a very short amount of time is that Mary Magdalene is not only loving, but powerful beyond your wildest expectations. Once you say yes, she is there with you to support, cajole and push.
If anything, she is constant in her energy. She is very polite... yes I said polite. She often asks me...
Will you say YES?
Once agreed upon, it is non-stop and I for one am extremely glad I've said YES once more and look forward to witness what is created next through her.
The Final Cry...for now
Our next destination for an afternoon was Minerve. It is located in the Occitanie region of France is also the location of a Cathar genocide in 1210. 140 parfaits were killed for they refused to deny their way of life. They were killed in the bottom of the gorge of the town. They were killed there as it would allow the water to carry them away and make it easy on those that did the killing.
For once the herd of 44 people on the tour were quiet as we filed through the village into the gorge. Ironically as horrific as the act was, the gorge was at peace. GREAT peace resides there. Two of our group members, who are excellent singers, shared their gift by serenading us. That is when the tears came forth for the day and, excuse the pun, the catharsis happened.
I felt myself undergoing a healing and the puzzle pieces if not put back together, at least they recognized other puzzle pieces. I offered a healing to the waters that had already healed, probably millions and felt the love wash over me.
We then ventured up the gorge to yet another delicious meal and I felt lighter with each step and more like myself than I had in a few days.
Where will Mary Magdalene lead me next?
In a nutshell... who knows!
I do know I am receiving more and more information from her. We created her essential oil blend that I shared with the tour as a gift and received reviews such as "I'm in Jerusaleum; back in the Holy Land." That in itself was the greatest compliment of them all, so I shan't bother you with more.
Her sigil, I believe is final. It had been evading me for a bit, but now I do believe we have come to an agreement of sorts.
We are beginning a new book, her and I. This is not about her per se, but to bring forth teachings in a loving manner and that I all I can about that for now.
So stay tuned and know whatever is created through her, is created through LOVE. No other energy is needed.
The day I walked the Chartres Labyrinth December 07 2017
I was recently in Sedona, Arizona for an extended weekend. The reason for the trip? A Conference filled with other amazing goddesses to learn about Mary Magdalene. Our days were filled with lectures, activities, laughter and hugs. Not to mention a glass of wine or two to celebrate Love.
One afternoon we went to Angel Valley. This entire area is a portal onto itself and one can feel the energy shift as they approach the property. One of the features of this other worldly location is a replica of the Chartres Labyrinth. For those of you who may be unaware of this power of this labyrinth, indulge me for a short description:
The original Chartres Labyrinth is located in Chartres Cathedral in France. Here is a photo of the original:
As you will notice, or take my word for it, there are eleven circuits that each walks to reach the center. The number 11 has many meanings; one of which represents entering your own divine mastery. Within the center is a Six Petal Rose. Each petal holds the individual energy of Faith, Surrender, Service, Abundance, Forgiveness and Overcoming. A fantastic book that delves into this has been written by Kathleen McGowan and is titled, The Source of Miracles. I HIGHLY recommend this book. It discusses the Lord's Prayer with such power, one really may never need another prayer. Something I have long argued since a child.
Many replicas of the Chartres Labyrinth have been created with great love throughout the world and I was blessed to visit one this past weekend at Angel Valley. As one enters this labyrinth, or any labyrinth, it is requested that you place an intention prior to entering. For by going within and walking, you receive answers. Your intentions could be for greater clarity, vast prosperity to support you on your mission, health, etc.
As you walk with focus and open-ness, you are guided to a variety of ways that respond to your request. Some experience profound awakenings while in the labyrinth, others a gentle urging and everything in between. No matter your experience, it is profound.
Below is The Chartres Labyrinth in Angel Valley:
This labyrinth is huge. It is an exercise to not be rushed. One takes their time as they ponder walk. As I walked I did just that; pondered. Desiring better clarity for me personally; who was I? What am I here to do? How may I be of better service?
Answers softly entered. I entered the Rose and within petal I knelt and released and dug deep to not find answers, but to willingly allow the answers to settle there and integrate to BEcome part of me. As I finished the Petals, I was then directed to walk the petals in the center in reverse. No questions; I obeyed. I circled the other goddeses within the center and noticed the energy ran out to all who would walk the labyrinth that day. The energy was directed to each with great love to help them love more aspects of themselves to fully realize their own greatness.
I then walked clock-wise in the center. As I did so, the question again was as to why... 'helping each to obtain the quality of life they desire through their destiny and service.'
It was time to reverse the walk of the Chartres Labyrinth and bring this information out. As I did, I was more aware of the others walking. I observed each. The paths within the labyrinth are not wide enough for two to comfortably walk abreast. Some took a wide berth. Others acknowledged the other's presence in the form of gassho (prayer position) and a simple Namaste. Others hugged.
Again I was guided. I continued to walk with arms down and hands open.
As I approached each Goddess, Mary told me what they needed; to allow them peace and love in whatever form. Some passed by without a glance. Some reveled in Namaste. Some hugged fiercely. Within that hug a message of love was relayed upon completion with a deep simple look of the eye. A soul to soul look.
No one form is better than the other.
However Mary Magdalene continued to instruct and educate and remind me of the metaphor this represents of life.
- Some may pass in your life only briefly. No exchange is needed of any kind.
- Some may only need a moment of recognition at any level in order to move forward.
- Some may walk with you.
Each path is perfect for the person. No judgment allowed. Each path is greeted with honor and sent along with love; whether is it is in the physical aspect or energetic. Each path can be filled with great love. Within that love is truth, joy and the essence of BEing.
Below is our beloved walking... yes I am in there as well.
