MARY MAGDALENE: What Is the Divine Masculine?

Buddha Statue Mercedes Kirkel

Received by Mercedes Kirkel

Mary Magdalene: Each of you have your own inner Masculine and Feminine. We’re not referring to men or women as a gender, because all men and women have their Masculine and Feminine within. We’re addressing all gendered beings, understanding that everyone has their Masculine and Feminine. You may be more in touch with one, or less in touch with the other, but you all have your Masculine and Feminine.

 

There is a more ordinary sense of the Masculine and Feminine that many of you are familiar with. But there is a higher form, or what you might call an exalted form. That is when you’re connecting to your sacred Masculine or Feminine, your Divine Masculine and Feminine.

 

The sacred Masculine, or Divine Masculine, is really the quality of pure transcendence. It’s what you might call transcendental being. It is prior to space and time. It’s prior to all manifestation. It has a kind of complete purity about it.

 

One way of understanding the pure quality of the Divine Masculine—which many of you have experienced—is that it’s what people seek to experience in meditation. Some people describe this state as peace, quiet, or stillness.

 

In various of your spiritual traditions there have been references or names given to this state, such as “the Self,” “the witness,” or “witness consciousness.” These are some of the references people are familiar with for the Divine Masculine. I’m not thinking of other names in this moment but I’m sure you are familiar with them.

 

The Eastern traditions, and in particular traditions such as Buddhism and Hinduism, have very much focused on this aspect of the divine (the transcendental or Divine Masculine aspect) as something to attain. Oftentimes these traditions have tried to support people in connecting with the Divine Masculine by suggesting that people only connect with the Divine Masculine, and not connect with the Divine Feminine. We’re suggesting something different. Nonetheless, these traditions have been a great support for people in connecting with the quality of the Divine Masculine and reaching the transcendent.

MARY MAGDALENE: The Necessity Of Uniting The Masculine And Feminine For Ascension

Image courtesy of www.karnuaarts.com

Image courtesy of www.karnuaarts.com

Received by Mercedes Kirkel

Question: Why is uniting the Masculine and Feminine important?

 

Mary Magdalene: We have spoken about this a great deal in the past. Yet we know that this is something that is new for many people and there may be people who have not heard what we have said in the past. So we are happy to explain, as best we can, in a way that will work for all.

 

The first thing to understand is that uniting the Masculine and Feminine takes place on so many levels. When we talk about the union of the Masculine and Feminine, we’re talking about a very multi-level, multi-dimensional process. First and foremost, we’re talking about receiving the divine in its fullest form. We’re talking about relating to the divine—and to God as a name for the divine—as both Masculine and Feminine, completely in union with each other.

 

This is very familiar to some of you. To some of you it is less familiar. One example in your world is the yin-yang symbol, which conveys the idea that everything is the union of Masculine and Feminine. This includes everything in manifestation, and everything in the higher dimensions, all the way up to the pure expression of the divine in its source form. Everything is the Masculine and the Feminine.

 

Yet for a very, very long period of time there has been a bias in your world toward the Masculine and a suppression of the Feminine, such that many of you, without even realizing it, are tending to be imbalanced.

 

For the most part, you who are incarnating on the Earth at this time are tending to be more oriented towards the Masculine, both outside of yourself and within yourself. And you are tending to be less connected to the Feminine.

 

Even among those of you who think you are connected to the Feminine, oftentimes there are ways that your programming has affected you. You may not even realize it, yet you are still coming from a more Masculine orientation.

 

Part of our work at this time is to help people understand how you are still being affected by this program that has been running on the Earth for so long of obscuring the Feminine and presenting things in a predominantly Masculine way. For example, in your spirituality many of you have been taught to relate to God in a Masculine way, such that you hear the word “God” as meaning Masculine, which it does not. It means the Masculine and Feminine divine. Of course it is just a word and everyone relates to words differently. Most likely when you hear that word it will bring up whatever your programming is. If you have been programmed to relate to God as Masculine, then when you hear the word “God,” you will very likely think of a Masculine being.

 

In fact, God is neither Masculine nor Feminine. It is also true that God is completely Masculine and completely Feminine. All of those are true and there is no conflict between any of them. As you evolve in your spiritual consciousness, this will become more and more clear, and more and more simple to all of you. Depending on each individual and their process, this may now be more or less clear, more or less simple or complex. We hope to help you with this understanding because this is a very important part of the ascension process.

 

When we talk about the ascension process, we’re talking about a grand transition that beings on Earth and the Earth itself are in the process of right now. This process involves moving into the higher dimensions, beginning with the fourth dimension. Part of what is going to allow all of you to make this transition is through uniting the Masculine and Feminine. You might say it is a prerequisite.

 

Another way to look at it is that accomplishing the uniting of the Masculine and Feminine is your gateway for this transition to the fourth dimension. And first and foremost, this uniting happens within each one of you. That is the most important place for this union to happen.

MARY MAGDALENE: Kundalini and Energy-Body Mastery

Image by Adityamadhav83

Image by Adityamadhav83

Received by Mercedes Kirkel

Question: I recently experienced a kundalini awakening but I don’t really know what it’s for. Could you please talk a little bit about that?

 

Mary Magdalene: Yes. The kundalini is a very important part of your energy system. This is part of what the training was in the mystery schools—the development of the full energy body and system, including the kundalini.

 

Ultimately the kundalini is for carrying you into higher dimensions and opening up higher centers within yourself that are going to be required as you move into those higher dimensions.

 

Sometimes the kundalini is activated spontaneously. Oftentimes when that happens it is not a full activation; it is a partial activation. A partial activation can happen when the structures or vessel for the kundalini are not fully prepared. This is why there can be effects that can be challenging from a spontaneous kundalini awakening, such as confusion or disorientation.

 

It is valuable to have a guide or teacher for this kind of process.

 

Question: Mary, when you speak of effects of kundalini in a temple that’s not yet ready, are there specific things we see manifested?

 

Mary Magdalene: Illness; problems with the nervous system being too activated; or a feeling of being burned out. Your systems may become out of synch such that it’s hard to sleep or you don’t know what to eat. The things you used to eat don’t seem to work anymore; you can’t find the right foods; your connection to the physical and nurturance through your food gets out of synch with your energy body.

 

There can be confusion. There can be an opening of the mind, the mental centers, in ways that perhaps you don’t understand, or that might even seem scary, or just confusing, and you’re not sure how to integrate them.

 

There can be effects such as ringing in the ears, balance problems, many things.

 

I hate to sound like a broken record, but the vessel for supporting the kundalini is created through the development of your emotional body. The emotional body is extremely aligned to your energy body—the foundation of the energy body is in the emotional body. This is another major reason why emotional development is so important for you. It’s necessary so you can be prepared to activate your energy body, and thus shift from the physical into the energy body. This is why I emphasize the emotional and energetic work.

 

The energetic work is bigger than sacred sexuality, but sacred sexuality is a valuable part of it. This does not require that you be practicing with a partner. You all are sexual beings with sexual energy. Making use of your sexual energy for spiritual growth is very valuable.

 

But the energetic work is bigger than that. It has to do with the heart. It has to do with the center of the brain—the pineal chakra, pineal gland, and the third eye. The activation and alignment of all these parts allows you to ultimately be able to activate your Merkaba. Your Merkaba is for your safety, protection, ease, and help as you move into the higher dimensions.

 

There is a progression for all of this that is safe, gentle, and dependable. This is what I recommend to people. It begins with the development and the mastery of the physical body and the emotions. From there you are ready to begin the next level of the energetic progression and ultimately the energetic mastery at your level.

 

Is what I have offered helpful?

 

Questioner: Yes.

 

Will there be a time when we know that we’re ready for the next level, physically and in our heart space?

 

Mary Magdalene: You will know in the heart space. If you are not able to enter into the heart space it is a sign that there is more preparatory work to do. When you are able to enter into the heart space and specifically to open what Mercedes has been referencing as the “inner temple of the heart,” this is the gateway. This is part of the safety that is built in. You will not be able to pass through that gateway until the preparation is complete.

 

This is something that Mercedes can help you with. She has great mastery and great ability in helping others with this. She understands this. We have asked her to be one who supports others in completing this and traversing this passageway.

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.

MARY MAGDALENE: Practicing Sacred Sexuality Without a Partner

Image by atarax42 sri yantra designer

Received by Mercedes Kirkel

 

Question: For those men or women who do not have a partner, how were you taught at the Temple of Isis to practice sacred sexuality, loving yourself and honoring yourself so that that life force doesn’t stop?

 

Mary Magdalene: Sacred sexuality is an energy practice. It is a practice of the kundalini life force, in the form of sexual energy—for they have the same source, the same pathway within the body. It does not require a partner to engage the sacred sexual energy, any more than it requires a partner to engage a kundalini practice. Truly there is a great deal in common with both.

 

For many people, the partnership aspect of sacred sexuality empowers the energy more. It ignites the energy. It charges the energy through the polarized interactions of the Masculine and Feminine, so the energy can become even stronger. That is the reason to engage with a partner, because it ignites the energy, making it even stronger and thus potentially much more powerful and effective in its effects.

 

This polarized charging is also a challenge because that energy has its own pull, its own draw. One who is going to truly engage sacred sexuality must master that energy so that you are not simply drawn into the course of that energy, which in its more ordinary form is the energy of procreation.

 

So sacred sexuality takes a certain level of training or development—perhaps that is a better explanation—a certain level of skill and commitment to utilize this energy for the highest purposes.

 

This can all be done at the individual level as well. It can be done with a partner long distance, engaging both of your energies. It can be done with someone who you are not in a relationship with, either sexually or in a non-sexual way, where you are simply sharing the energies and moving the energy between the two of you. There are many ways this can be done.

 

Sacred sexuality is a most valuable practice, just as in India the kundalini has long been recognized as a most valuable spiritual practice and pathway. The same is true of the sexual energy and the sexual pathway.

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.

MARY MAGDALENE: Yeshua and The Earth’s Ascension

Yeshua-halo-uplifted-hand

Received by Mercedes Kirkel

 

Question: There are many explanations about why Yeshua accepted to be crucified and to go through that. I’d like to hear the answer from you, please.

 

Mary Magdalene: Yes.

 

It was a sacrifice in the greatest sense of the word. Yeshua came to change the course of the Earth, to shift the Earth into the process of ascension. The Earth and the people of the Earth had descended to the lowest extent imaginable and there was concern that it would remain this way for a very long time, or perhaps it would not be able to turn itself around. So Yeshua came to do this work, to turn the evolutionary process and reset it so that the Earth could begin its process of return, of ascension, and no longer be stuck in the place of the lowest densities.

 

The crucifixion was a part of this, a very essential part of this. The spiritual force Yeshua had manifested within himself was released into the Earth and also into humanity through the crucifixion, allowing a new level of light and love to take root and take hold in this world. This was the most fundamental reason for the crucifixion.

 

The cross that he was crucified on was a conductor of his blessing force into the Earth, allowing this blessing to be fully received and the Earth to fully be charged through his life force with his blessing power. This blessing power would be held in the Earth and would be available to the people and the beings of the Earth. This is why you have seen such immense changes in your world since the time of Yeshua and this continues to this day.

 

This is why the ascension process is happening now at the incredibly rapid pace that it is. This would not normally be the case at all. What is happening on the Earth is exceedingly unique and it has everything to do with the work that Yeshua did here. That work came to fulfillment and was completed through the crucifixion. Do you understand?

 

Questioner: Yes. He didn’t die on the cross, did he?

 

Mary Magdalene: No, he did not die on the cross. He was taken to the tomb and revived. The healers were ready and prepared, knowing that this was what they had been called to do. It was all set in place beforehand and the inner circle were all there. He was revived and removed.

 

The story that was told was prepared in advance so that the prophecies would be fulfilled. It was also told so that the people who were ready for that level of opening, that level of relationship to Yeshua’s work and who he was, could accept him in that form. The story was also told so that he would be safe, that people would not realize or suspect that he had lived. But he did not die on the cross.

 

Is there more you wish to ask about that?

 

Questioner: No. Thank you.

 

Mary Magdalene: You are welcome.

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.
