MARY MAGDALENE: Discerning What’s Yours and What Belongs to Others

Apostle_with_glasses_(1439)

Received by Mercedes Kirkel

Question: Mary, whenever I tune into my emotions it seems to me there’s always some sort of pain there. I find it difficult doing the process you have brought to us because it’s time-consuming and there’s always something there. I wonder if I’m picking up pain from somewhere or somebody else.

 

Mary Magdalene: You may need support for working with this pain.

 

You certainly can be in choice about when you choose to do this process. At other times, when you’re not choosing to engage this process, you can ask that you be supported in being available for what you need then—whether it’s free attention for your work, emotional peace, or simply to be functional. You certainly can ask.

 

Many of you have this question: “Am I picking this up from others or is this mine?”

 

It is always yours.

 

Accepting this is one of the great challenges of the third dimension. It is also one of the gateways beyond the third dimension.

 

In the third dimension there is a duality of “mine” and “not mine,” me and everyone or everything else. This duality is a great limit. At some point it will become clear to you it is all yours. There is nothing that is not yours. There is nothing that is not you. But this will be a realization; it won’t be an idea. You can’t believe yourself into this and have it be productive. If you try to come from belief, you will be suppressing yourself and it will actually inhibit your spiritual growth more than it will support it.

 

The way through is to make an assumption that it is always yours. This is the most direct path. It is also the most empowered path because you are always empowered to work with yourself.

 

Many of you are familiar with a modern version of a Hawaiian healing practice that was put forth in the last decades. This modern version involved taking 100% responsibility for everything that happens as your own creation. This is a valuable spiritual practice.

 

This practice of taking 100% responsibility must always be done with feeling. If it becomes a burden or a stick you are beating yourself with, it is not supporting you. That is a sign that it is not the practice you need at this time. You need a different practice. This may be a valuable form of practice for periods of time or it may not be, but the understanding behind it is quite valuable.

 

Always begin with yourself.

 

This is the creation process. As you move into the fourth dimension you are becoming more conscious creators. In your third-dimensional world, you can lay the foundation for this by assuming that all that you experience is your creation. Then you can work with yourself relative to that creation. Are you happy with the creation? Do you wish to change that creation? What is holding you to that creation? What are your blocks to what you would like the creation to be? This is the beginning. It is a shift into full responsibility, full ownership for what is manifesting.

 

Many of you are very locked into third-dimensional thinking. I do not say this as a judgment. It is simply the way you have been trained. It is simply what has been most prevalent in your world for most of you. There is a tendency associated with third-dimensional consciousness to connect responsibility with blame. You tend to think that if you are responsible that means it’s your fault. You think you have done something wrong and the corollary is you’d better fix it. All of this is what is to be purified.

 

It is not a blame of you that you are experiencing whatever you are experiencing. It is not some higher authority angry at you and demanding that you change it—not even the higher authority of your internal mind and brain that you may have created for yourself.

 

It is so important to start with the Feminine. The connection to your body, emotions, and sexuality is so important, because this is what will open your heart. Without that heart opening it is almost inevitable that the development of your mind will turn into rightness and wrongness, blame, judgment, harshness, pain, wounding.

 

So begin with the basics just as a child begins with the basics. Begin with loving your body. Begin with loving your sexuality and emotions. If you need help with processing the painful emotions which must also be loved and included—because they are there for your help, also—get the help that you need. Get the support that you need. Then it will become easeful. It will become natural if you make a commitment to it.

 

Most of you are going through a great process of shedding the training you have received, the consciousness you have received, the habits you have received. There is work involved in that. It is a practice and it requires your intention and energy to do it. Pray and ask for help. Pray and ask for what you need. It will be given.

 

Know that you are doing very, very well.

 

Questioner: Thank you.

 

Mary Magdalene: You are welcome.

MY VISION FOR THE COMING TIMES

william_blake_kiss_of_adam__eve

By Mercedes Kirkel

Hello friends,

 

As we enter 2017, I’m holding a vision of greater things ahead and a growing community of awakened beings responding to the call for humanity’s evolution.

 

My vision is rooted in the guidance I’ve received from Mary Magdalene and Yeshua. They’ve given a very specific teaching, specifically for this time, to support all of our spiritual transformation. More than anything else, it’s about uniting the Masculine and Feminine as the gateway to higher consciousness.

 

This uniting of the Masculine and Feminine will occur through individuals doing transformational work on their inner Masculine and Feminine. This will then be reflected in the “outer world” of our collective manifestation, as consciousness is always creating our “outer” reality.

 

The first phase of the Magdalene-Yeshua teaching has been to strengthen the Feminine in all of us. This strengthening of the Feminine allows a shift to occur.
The shift is FROM mind-based living that excludes the heart TO heart-centered living that’s in union with the mind.

 

Let me say that again, for emphasis:

 

WE’RE SHIFTING FROM:

Mind-based living that excludes the heart.

TO:

Heart-centered living that’s in union with the mind.

 

That’s a really important shift that we’re all in the process of making.

 

A part of this shift involves us fulfilling our cosmic role as humans of becoming emotional masters. As emotional masters, we will transform our 3D habit of projecting our pain into blame, judgment, aggression, and separation. Instead we will embrace and value all emotions—including painful emotions—as pathways to God-connection, true healing, and transformation.

 

All this will allow us to become spiritual co-creators for the highest good of all. We will go beyond dependence and independence, into interdependence.

 

The strengthening of the Feminine will also involve:

  • healing any shame we carry relative to our bodies and sexuality
  • developing our light body, which includes practicing sacred sexuality

 

The sign of the work of strengthening the Feminine being fulfilled is that we will be able to live from our hearts, consistently and continuously.

 

Then the next phase can begin. This is the phase of the Feminine loving the Masculine into its greatness. This includes the healing of the Masculine, but it’s much more than that. It’s ultimately about supporting the Masculine into its fully exalted role.

 

This is what is meant by the Feminine taking the lead at this time. It is not a lead like Joan of Arc or a general leading the troops, for that is the Masculine way of leading.

 

The Feminine leads through love—sharing her awakened gifts of emotional mastery, energetic aliveness, sacred sexuality, love of the body, and love of all forms of manifestation/creation. Ultimately she is sharing her radiant heart.

 

The love of the Feminine is the food the Masculine needs to open its heart to God. In that God-connection, the Masculine is transformed from the lower Masculine of action and goal accomplishment that’s separate from the heart and higher mind. The exalted Masculine lives as awakened consciousness, honoring and protecting the Feminine, guiding the Feminine through enlightened wisdom, and acting in service to the united Masculine-Feminine.

 

One of the strongest examples I see of the exalted Masculine at the present time is the Native American water protectors at Standing Rock, North Dakota. This applies to both the men and women who have taken up this role. Of course this is a generalization and each individual is manifesting their exalted Masculine to a greater or lesser degree. But as a generalization it’s helpful, because it provides an in-life example.

 

The water protectors at Standing Rocking are embodying the awakened Masculine through their tremendous love of the Feminine in the form of the Earth, and specifically through the element of water. They are demonstrating

  • the honoring and protecting of the Feminine (the water)
  • bringing enlightened wisdom to the Feminine through their vision, understanding, and prayer
  • following this up with action

 

This is just one example of how the exalted Masculine may manifest.

 

I believe the higher Masculine and Feminine, in union with each other, is our destiny. And we’ve been given tools and guidance to get there through Mary Magdalene’s and Yeshua’s teaching.

 

Because of this, I continue to share Mary’s and Yeshua’s teachings through online courses, books, retreats, my weekly newsletter and blog, and private sessions.

 

And now I see the next phase beginning of creating a physical spiritual center with a community of people dedicated to manifesting this teaching with each other. Ultimately, I see this expanding out to a global community, which has already begun, thanks to the sharing of the teaching I’ve received around the world.

 

I believe in this vision and invite you to join me in it. You can learn more at www.mercedeskirkel.com.

 

Heart blessings,
Mercedes Kirkel

MARY MAGDALENE: Healing Body Shame

gustav_klimt_001

Received by Mercedes Kirkel

 

Question: I have a question about the process that occurs when we heal the deeper wounds of our inner Masculine and Feminine, which I understand allows a natural union to take place. Could you speak of what that union may be like?

 

Mary Magdalene: This is where you are all being led. This union is a tremendous ecstasy.

 

It is why you are willing to do the healing of the Masculine and Feminine. Many of you—probably all of you—have had a certain degree of experiencing this union for glimpses or periods of time. This motivates you to have that union become your ongoing reality.

 

The healing of the inner Feminine and Masculine depends on where your wounding is, how much wounding there is, and what is being blocked. So the course will be different, depending on all of that. It also depends how much mastery there is, primarily of the first three chakras, and how much more mastery is required.

 

Many of you have been given a tremendous amount of training in the third chakra. The part of your world that doesn’t include the spiritual, which is separated from the spiritual, which you might call “non-spiritual,” is very dedicated to the arenas involved in the third chakra and third chakra mastery. This includes the lower mind, will, intention, and power. Most of you have been given access to tremendous tools in these areas. You may be at different places relative to your own personal mastery and completion of that work, but most of you are very in touch with the process of achieving mastery relative to the third chakra. You’re clear about what it is and understand how to access the help you need for completing your mastery at that level.

 

The first and second chakras are much less developed for many of you. And the way to mastery is much less clear.

 

The first chakra is the chakra of the physical body. Mastery of this chakra is not just about becoming healed in your physical body, although that is certainly part of it (if there is physical healing to do). It is also not just about becoming strong and competent in your physical body, although that can certainly be supportive. It is mostly about relating to your body as a temple. For many of you, a key aspect of this is healing shame that you carry relative to your body.

 

If you are ever in a circumstance of being without clothing—clothed by God—for many of you, this brings up pain and conflict. For many of you, having others see you in your physical body, not in clothing but simply in your physical body, is difficult. This is a sign of the shame you carry.

 

This shame relative to your body is a great block. For many, it’s connected to deep wounding. This is the level that many of you have not yet completed. When it’s completed your relationship to your body can be completely sacred, where you see your body as every bit as divine as anything else you hold as sacred. You see it manifesting God every bit as as much as you relate to me manifesting God, or Yeshua, or any being who you see God in.

 

You must see that in yourself as well. As you see it in yourself, you will start to see it in all. It is inevitable. This is a place of completion for many of you, where you have more work to do to attain the mastery that is required.

 

Many of you in your world spend a great deal of time trying to create an image of yourself that you feel happy with, whether it’s through your hair, makeup, clothing, jewelry, shoes…. This tends to be more true of women than of men, but it is not always the case. There are many aspects to this that actually consume quite a bit of energy for many of you. If you contemplate going without this, letting go of this, you will notice there is often fear there—fear of being loved, fear of being accepted, even fear of being included in your world. All of this is a sign there is healing to do.

 

Beauty is a wonderful thing. Adorning your body is a wonderful thing. It is not that I am calling you to be ascetics or to go with nothing, although that is certainly a possibility, if that feels most supportive to you. But that is not my primary message.

 

My primary message is to let the beauty that you adorn your body with come out of joy. Let it express the joy of your God connection. Let it come out of the joy of adorning your temple—as opposed to shame and fear, or trying to cover up something that is not good enough, not lovable, not acceptable.

 

I have great sadness that so many feel this kind of shame in relation to their bodies. I see all of physical manifestation as tremendously beautiful. All of it carries the creation of God, the manifestation of God in form.

 

I am not calling you to be joyful from your mind as a belief. I am calling you to do this through your body and emotions, to heal whatever may be a block to that joy.

 

An example of this might be a very young child—often before the age of five, and perhaps younger than that—who has a naturalness, a love of their body as an extension of the physical world. This is not based on an idea in their mind that they should love their body, that it is the spiritual thing to do to love their body, that their body is God. Their mind doesn’t tend to be that developed at that stage. It is a very natural physical response, which all of you had until you received other messages and training.

 

The messages and training that many of you received about your body created a tremendous spiritual blockage. You came here to experience physical reality, to experience manifestation in a physical body. This is a part of your path, to embrace the physical and merge with it as pure God-communion.

YESHUA: The Spiritual Process of Incarnating on Earth

the-christ-child-melchior_paul_von_deschwander_das_christuskind

Received by Mercedes Kirkel

 

Yeshua: This is Yeshua speaking.

 

From the Masculine point of view, nothing is more wonderful than abiding as pure consciousness.

 

From the Masculine point of view, there is absolutely no difference between the pure Feminine, absolute love, and the pure Masculine, complete consciousness. They are two sides of the mirror, two sides of the coin. You are always already both.

 

In some sense there is nothing to attain, as many of your spiritual practices have suggested.

 

But you have all chosen to come into this manifest form, where your consciousness is limited. You consciously chose, and through that choice you manifested. Now your consciousness is reflecting the manifestation that you chose.

 

This is a bit of a sticky wicket, you might say. There is a part of you that remembers something higher. That part of you is your higher self. That part of you is calling you to change your consciousness, and through that your manifestation. It is calling you to change your manifestation, and through that your consciousness.

 

Your higher self is calling you to this spiritual process. All are called. All are actually responding in their own way and their own form that is right for them at this time. It is for each of you to respond. You can’t help but do it. You are doing it.

 

Yet in the third dimension you have free will. So part of your journey in this third dimension is to engage your free will to support this wonderful process of uniting in and as God. It doesn’t make sense to your mind. I recommend listening to your heart and your consciousness. Let that be your guide.

MARY MAGDALENE: How Women Can Heal

The Empress

Received by Mercedes Kirkel

 

Question: As we’re shifting the energy on the Earth today into a new dimension, I see part of the healing is for women to forgive, love, and honor themselves where they may have been shut down. How is this done in the most divine, sacred way, in giving permission to women?

 

Mary Magdalene: To forgive, love, and honor themselves?

 

Questioner: Yes.

 

Mary Magdalene: They must do the healing of what has caused them to stop at a certain point, what has frozen them you might say, like shutting off a valve. It is not enough to simply intend that this valve reopen. You must find the wound that closed it and there must be reopening of the wound, literally.

 

There is no way to bypass this that is authentic. You must go through the process of going into the wound and allow it to heal in the way it was originally intended to heal. If someone shut down at some point, they moved out of the healing process—out of despair, or fear, or not knowing how to complete it.

 

This is the work that I spoke about in great depth in the first set of messages I brought through to Mercedes, the ones that are embodied in the book Mary Magdalene Beckons. I spoke about how to learn a whole different pathway of relating to pain, a pathway that takes you into reconnecting with God. If someone has shut down from their love, or their self-honoring, or their self-forgiveness, they have stopped that process. Or perhaps they never began it in the first place, not realizing or understanding how to engage it. It must be re-engaged.

 

The heart must open. When you open the heart you will feel the pain. You will feel the place you stopped. It is right there waiting to be healed. But it is not about simply feeling the pain. You must let the pain take you to its source, the place within yourself that you shut down from, your own God-nature. Then you can reconnect to that God-nature within.

 

That is the function of pain. It shows you the most direct pathway to reconnect with your God-self. If you do not make use of that pathway for your healing and instead try another pathway, very often you will not get to the true root. The emotions were intended to guide you to the healing you require. When you try to do it through another pathway, especially the pathway of the mind, most often people are fooled. They think they understand. They think they realize what they need to do to heal. But they are still hiding the true connection and source from themselves.

 

This is the pathway that’s described in Mary Magdalene Beckons. This is the most important thing for most people to learn at this time, especially those in the Feminine. It is more natural for the Feminine to avail themselves of this emotional process. Through their own opening to emotions, and through learning this process of allowing their emotions to lead them back into full connection to God, those in the Feminine can support those in the Masculine.

 

Those in the Masculine may not have the exact same pathway, but it will be a similar one. They will be very supported by those in the Feminine who have developed these strengths. This is part of the synergy between the Masculine and the Feminine, which they were meant to engage and support each other with. It is a most beautiful and wondrous process.

 

It is not easy to understand this process until you actually experience it. This is part of the work that has been given to Mercedes, to be the bridge to help people to experience this process and understand it deeply within themselves. Then they can start to live this process and to model it for others. My words may not make sense until you avail yourself of that kind of support and have the experience yourself.

 

Does this answer your question?

 

Questioner: Yes.

8 Things to Say (and Not Say) When Someone’s Grieving

picasso-woman-in-blue

By Mercedes Kirkel

 

I thought I was prepared for my mother’s death. I’d seen her declining. I’d talked to her about dying. I didn’t need to heal anything with her. I’d said my goodbyes. I believed she was going to a much better place and that we’d always be connected. And I felt glad for her struggles to be over.

 

What I forgot about was me.

 

I’ve had a hard time since my mother died—much harder than I expected. Initially I was in shock. I just couldn’t feel much at all. Beneath that was a feeling that some part of me had been ripped out. And below that was a well of grief. But the first two—the shock and feeling of separation—were so intense and consuming, I was only able to get beyond them and dip into the pool of grief for brief periods, like dipping my toe in water every now and then.

 

I feel some trepidation in sharing this with you. I’m afraid you’ll judge me for having a hard time with the death of a loved one. You might decide I’m spiritually incompetent, a spiritual laggard—or possibly even a spiritual phony. Perhaps you believe that really spiritual people are beyond feeling grief and sorrow when someone dies, that their spiritual connection to God and all of life is so strong that they only feel the joy of everlasting peace… or something like that.

 

I have a different point of view. A lot of it has come from Mary Magdalene. Mary calls the orientation toward everlasting peace, eternity, rising “above” the comings and goings of life, etc. the Masculine perspective. It’s the part of us that connects with what transcends our Earthly, 3D realm. Some paths and traditions call this God. But Mary says it’s only one aspect or “face” of God, the Masculine part.

 

She says there’s also a Feminine “face” of God. We connect with that part when we experience God in and through the manifest world. It’s God incarnate, materialized in endless forms. Experiencing God in this form requires that we open to fully feeling and experiencing the manifest world and our connection to it. That includes feeling loss and grief when a loved one leaves or dies.

 

Mary says that most of us have a bias toward the Masculine and are underdeveloped in our Feminine. We’ve been trained to see the Masculine as important and the Feminine as the source of our problems in life, and thus something that’s best avoided.

 

I, too, carry that imprint of avoiding the Feminine. I see it in my difficulty experiencing and allowing my grief. I’m afraid to fully open to my mourning. Which is to say, I’m afraid of the Feminine.

 

Yet I’ve learned enough, through Mary and my growth in the path she teaches, that I know my way forward is in doing exactly that—opening myself to my grief, merging with it, letting my pain guide me to God, and letting God guide me from there.

 

Nonetheless, when it’s something as big as my mother dying, I need help and support to do this.

 

I would love to live in a world where people supported me in going into my grieving. Here are 8 ways I’ve learned that give me the kind of support I long for.

 

1) When I’m grieving, understand that it’s not about what’s happening to the person who’s died. I may feel completely at peace and even happy about their process, but still feel grief about my loss. Reassuring me about the wonderful place they’re in doesn’t help me with my loss right now. It actually requires me to come out of my grieving process and enter into a more mind-based place that isn’t authentic to what I’m feeling. While I realize that most people are sincerely trying to help me to feel better by focusing on the wellbeing of the one who’s died (saying things such as “he/she is with God now” or “they’re in the light” or “they’re out of their suffering”), it’s not what I need right now. I’ll come to that on my own, when I’m ready, after I’ve dealt with my grief.

 

2) I don’t want to focus on how good my future relationship with the person will be. I want to be in the present with what’s happening for me now, which is grief and my difficulty experiencing the grief. While imagining having contact with the person in the future does feel consoling and even hopeful, it also distracts me from my grief. I trust that my grief is being given to me because it’s exactly what I need. As Mary teaches, it has an important and necessary gift for me, if I understand how to receive it and make use of it. I don’t want to skip over my grief or suppress it. I want to receive it fully and make the most of its gift.

 

3) Please don’t tell me to be strong or even that I’m being strong. Either one takes me out of my grieving process, which is where I find my true strength.

 

4) This is a tough one, but I believe it’s also very important. Please don’t begin by telling me how sorry you are for my loss. Why? Because that’s about you, not me. When I hear that, I often feel I need to take care of you, reassuring you that I’m OK and telling you how much I appreciate your expression. That’s taking me away from my grief.

 

I’ve learned to hear the expression “I’m so sorry for your loss” as a shorthand way of saying “I’m sad because I’m guessing that you’re sad. I want you to know that I care about your well-being and I’m here for you.”

 

I like this version a lot better because then I don’t feel like I need to take care of the other person. I then can respond with an authentic “Thank you.”

 

But it still takes me away from my grieving.

 

4) What I really want is for you to ask me how I’m doing. This is like shining a gentle, warm light on my grief. It helps me to go beyond my shock and to allow myself to experience the deeper pain of separation and sadness. That’s hard for me to do. When you go there with me, it really helps.

 

You don’t have to feel what I’m feeling. Just be present with me while I feel it. It’s like holding my hand emotionally. I can’t tell you how much that helps.

 

5) When I tell you how I’m doing and what I’m feeling, don’t try to fix it or change it. I don’t need fixing or changing. I don’t need reassuring that this will pass, things will get better, all is in God’s hands, etc. I don’t need suggestions that I should rest, exercise, eat, do something nurturing, or anything else. All of those suggestions and beliefs will take me away from my grieving process.

 

6) What I really want is for you to reflect my feelings back to me. Just that. Help me to experience and open to my feelings. Be with me in that. It’s as simple as “I hear you feel really numb” (or whatever feeling I expressed). You don’t have to be creative and change the words I said. Lots of times that changes the meaning and again takes me out of my process. Just use the words I used. It’s really like being a mirror. It really helps.

 

7) When you’ve given me as much space as I seem to need or want to express what’s going on for me, then I want to hear how you feel about the loss. I want to hear how you feel about what’s happening for me. I may be open to hearing your ideas for what you think might help me—but please check in with me first and see if I’m open to receiving suggestions right now.

 

I believe grieving is an essential part of our humanity. It’s a death-rebirth process that grows our heart and our being. It’s not a sign of weakness. It’s a sign of strength and depth of loving.

 

When someone supports me in my process of grieving, they give me a great gift. Then they’re really “being there for me,” in a way I need, in a way that deeply helps.

 

There’s one last thing I want to add. If you’ve reached out to me during this time, I want you to know that I REALLY appreciate it, regardless of the words you’ve used or the form of support you’ve offered. I hear everyone’s expressions as offerings of care and support and love. Every communication I’ve received has REALLY meant a lot to me and helped me get through a difficult time. So I hope you’ll keep communicating with me—really!

 

My desire in writing this is to be transparent, to show who I am, what I feel and want, and what helps me. My hope is that this will be helpful to others, too.

MARY MAGDALENE: Advice on Sacred Relationship

krishna_n_radha

Received by Mercedes Kirkel
In a Group Channeling Occasion

 

Question: What can you share with us about your sacred relationship with Yeshua, and what advice would you give us to live in a sacred partnership like you did?

 

Mary Magdalene: I have shared to a certain extent already about my relationship with Yeshua. We were sacred lovers, sacred partners, both of us completely dedicated to our path of devotion to God. Our relationship was an extension of that. Our relationship was a form through which we served.

 

Anytime a couple comes together in love, that love is serving the whole. It is inevitable. If it is done consciously, as a conscious intention, it is all the stronger and affects the greater body of humanity even more. We practiced sacred sexuality together, as a form of blessing for ourselves and our work we were in the midst of doing, and also as a blessing for all of humanity. This was another form in which our relationship was a part of our service to humanity.

 

In terms of what I would say to others: Follow your heart. Be guided by your heart. See your partner as the Divine. This is most important. This is your relationship to the Divine, through your partner.

 

This does not mean you will be happy with everything your partner does. You can express your feelings to your partner with love and ask for changes. But do that in the context of the greater practice of seeing your partner as the Divine Masculine or the Divine Feminine, loving you in your divinity. This is the way you meet the Divine in this plane. It is not the only way, but one of the most powerful ways.

 

Know that whatever you struggle with in relation to your partner is an extension of you and your challenges, and own that. Again, this is not to say that you must accept things that your heart and your soul tell you are not right for you. Yet you must look at your part in creating this and take responsibility for changing your part.

 

Know that there are no rules. Your society has created rules. Your religions have created rules. These were created for various reasons—sometimes to control people, sometimes to create harmony or ease, sometimes with the misunderstanding that this would support people in their evolution and growth. But truly there are no rules. There is only what is right for you and for all involved. There is only what is for the highest good of all involved. This is what you must let guide you.

 

Your relationship with a partner is always your relationship with your own inner Masculine and Feminine. Know that this is where the ultimate work is always to be done. Then your relationship with your partner can become a celebration of that and a magnification of that in the world.

 

Do not look for your partner to replace God and to fulfill you in the ways that only God can. This will certainly lead to suffering for you and your partner. Be whole and happy in your relationship to God. Then enjoy that through your partner and your relationship with your partner, in addition to your wholeness with yourself.

 

Questioner: Thank you.

 

Mary Magdalene: You are most welcome.

MARY MAGDALENE: Healing the Wounded Masculine

Image by Jeff Dahl, altered by Altairisfar

Image by Jeff Dahl, altered by Altairisfar

Received by Mercedes Kirkel
In a Group Channeling Occasion

 

Question: I encounter beautiful souls in the Masculine body who have been hurt by the Feminine that has become very Masculine. How do we love and honor these men, to help heal and be ambassadors of your light, your love, and your mission?

 

Mary Magdalene: Thank you so much for your question. I am so happy to respond to this.

 

It is by loving them.

 

First and foremost, see them in the beauty of their Masculine. See their Masculine as beautiful. There are many men who have been greatly hurt and are very confused how to be a man, how to bring forth the Masculine, because so many women have expressed that the Masculine has hurt them.

 

There is so much to sort out in all of this. The Masculine so much needs the Feminine’s love and to be seen as loving the Feminine. Reassure men, and the Masculine in whatever form, that their love is valuable, that you need their love, and that it supports you. When they are doing something that is difficult of painful for you in some way, be very aware of their vulnerability.

 

The Masculine is quite vulnerable. If there is someone in the Masculine position who is hurting someone in the Feminine position, or who is not vulnerable, it is because they themselves are very hurt, very wounded. It does not mean that what they are doing is alright. It does not give them support for hurting the Feminine. That must be stopped. But use as little force as possible that is still effective. Understand that this is a being who is very hurt and who needs help. It is not natural.

 

Most children go through a stage where they experiment with hurting each other. This is a natural phase for children to go through in their exploration. But they should be guided wisely by adults through and out of this phase, so that it is not their desire to hurt others. If someone has not received this kind of guidance and has been hurt themselves, especially as a child, then they will need great help to recover from this.

 

Most people at this time are very confused about the Masculine and Feminine roles, how to incarnate them, and how to relate to each other. It is most likely that this will be moved forward through the Feminine incarnating her strength and her Femininity, and then bringing that strength in the form of love to the Masculine. The Feminine can then empower the Masculine to be their strong, loving self. The Feminine can see this strength in them, even if they can’t see it in themselves, until they become it most fully.

 

Does this answer your question?

 

Questioner: Yes. Thank you.

MARY MAGDALENE: Attracting a Partner for Your Highest Good

The Lovers

Received by Mercedes Kirkel
In a Group Channeling Occasion

 

Question: Could you talk about attracting a partner that would be ideal for our higher self and how we can be assured that it is something for our highest good?

 

Mary Magdalene: There are two parts to this.

 

The first part is that whatever you’re attracting into your life is always based on what you yourself are living and being in your essence, at your core. The more you support yourself in coming from your highest self, inevitably that is what will come back to you. This is the law of attraction, what you are attracting in.

 

When people desire a relationship, it can be a kind of a trap to focus on the partner that you want. In fact, you want to focus on yourself and who you want to be in the relationship. Have that draw in the partner that matches that.

 

This is one aspect of attracting. It’s not, by any means, just limited to relationships. It’s also not limited to situations where you’re consciously wanting to draw something in. It’s a moment-to-moment practice because everything that’s happening in your life is always based on who you are and what you are attracting in. The secret is to focus on yourself, on you being the partner that will attract in the partner you want.

 

The second part of this is that whoever and whatever circumstances are showing up in your life, at any time, are always the perfect circumstances. We can’t help it. It’s really the same principle of the law of attraction.

 

We attract in not only our light. We also attract in our shadow. The challenges that come to us are always the perfect things for our growth, which we wouldn’t necessarily see if we didn’t have a reflection. They come to us to help us with our growth.

 

The things that show up in our lives frequently do not take the form that we would hope for or imagine are best for us, if we were to imagine the outcome we would like. But there is always a perfection in whatever is showing up because it is the outer manifestation of our inner reality. It is the perfect circumstance for our growth. In that sense, whoever comes into your life will be the perfect person.

MARY MAGDALENE: You Must Learn to Trust The Body

Klimt_-_Danae_-_1907-08

By Mercedes Kirkel

 

Question: I think my next step is knowing that I am connected to Source and that I am loved. I would like some advice on how to do that better. Right now I’m just trying to align myself and remember I am in my heart.

 

Mary Magdalene: The strongest way is to find the places where you don’t do that. This is your greatest help, through the places where you feel the most disconnected. Are you in touch with that at this time?

 

Questioner: I’m aware that sometimes I’m not connected to feeling my pain, or even aware when I’m in pain. My reaction has been one of frustration with all the physical things that are going on and my inability to take care of that.

 

Mary Magdalene: Physical, as in health?

 

Questioner: Yes, changes in the body, pains, injuring things in minor ways, or not being able to heal myself.

 

Mary Magdalene: What is your response when these things happen?

 

Questioner: I’m learning to love my body anyway, to accept that this is a just a body and this is where it is right now, in time.

 

Mary Magdalene: For most people, the effect of that kind of thinking is to alienate yourself from your own being.

 

Your body is in a certain kind of pain and you are adding another layer on top of it. This is often what is done with children. When children are crying, the adult says, “Don’t cry. Everything’s fine.” But that’s not the child’s reality. The child’s reality is that they are in pain.

 

The effect of that kind of communication over time is to tell them “Your reality isn’t real.” Then they start to dissociate from their experience. They think there must be something else they’re supposed to be feeling, other than what they actually are feeling.

 

Does that make sense?

 

Questioner: It does. I think I’m feeling what’s going on with my body. I just get frustrated with it because I want to make it better.

 

Mary Magdalene: Yes. You must let go of your goal.

 

Questioner: Yes.

 

Mary Magdalene: Your body has a different plan.

 

Questioner: Apparently.

 

Mary Magdalene: Are you willing to trust it?

 

Questioner: Hmmm…I think if I can love myself and know that I’m loved, then I can trust across the board.

 

Mary Magdalene: It tends to happen in the reverse order. When you trust your body and open to it, you will find the love. Until you do that, it will be your head working against your heart.

 

Questioner: Yes, I have a lot of intellectual energy.

 

Mary Magdalene: Yes. That is the inner union of the Masculine and the Feminine, right there.

 

There is fear of opening to the Feminine, opening to the body. What if it takes you into the darkness and you never come out? That is the great fear of opening to the Feminine.

 

Questioner: Thank you.

 

Mary Magdalene: Thank you.
