MARY MAGDALENE and YESHUA: The Feminine Form of Meditation

Isis_(Egyptian_Museum) By Mis4930

Received by Mercedes Kirkel

 

Question: My understanding is that traditional meditation is a Masculine approach to finding God within, because it relies on the mind. What would be a more Feminine approach?

 

Mary Magdalene: It is true that the meditation practices most of you have received have been very much oriented toward the Masculine. This has worked well for many, who have a strength in the Masculine. For others of you, who are not so naturally oriented to the Masculine, this has been a challenge. Many of you have come to the place of feeling that perhaps you’re not able to meditate. Or perhaps you feel you’re not even able to practice spirituality at all, because of your difficulty with the type of practice that has been recommended.

 

We feel very sad about this. It is one of the consequences of the Feminine being excluded in so many domains in your world, including your spiritual domain. It has excluded many of you, and even brought many of you to conclude that you weren’t able to engage in spirituality—which is never the case. All of you are absolutely able to engage in spirituality. It has simply been that your world has not brought forth the fullest picture and has not helped you to understand how to access the path that is best for each person.

 

Indeed, there are pathways that are more inclusive of the Feminine. What we recommend is that each person find the practice that fits you best. Ultimately you will all have to develop your Feminine and Masculine. And ultimately, the Feminine always leads to the Masculine and the Masculine always leads to the Feminine.

 

If a more Masculine practice is most natural for you and that’s what you engage, that will eventually, inevitably, lead you to the Feminine. The same is true of a more Feminine practice. If it is a true spiritual practice, it will inevitably lead you to the Masculine.

 

However, the most direct path, and probably the most efficient path in terms of time—what you might call the speediest path—is to engage both your Masculine and your Feminine, to the degree you are able. As it is natural for you, it is helpful to engage both.

 

To summarize, you may choose to engage more Masculine practices, or you may choose to engage more Feminine practices, or you may choose to engage both. That being said, I would like to talk about what the more Feminine practices are.

 

When we use the word “meditation,” we are simply talking about focusing. It is a focusing of the mind. There is an inherent Masculine aspect to this focusing because it involves the mind. And the mind is part of your Masculine being.

 

Any time you are focusing on something or other, it is a form of meditation. If you choose to focus on things that are more involved in the Feminine, that will help to bring in more of the Feminine.

 

Some of you do this when you go out in nature and focus on your experience of the natural world. You focus on the sounds, the smells, the sights that you’re experiencing in nature. You’re focusing on your connection with nature, which is really Mother Earth and the manifestation of the Divine Feminine in your Earth realm. Focusing on that can be a form of Feminine meditation.

 

You could increase your connection with the Feminine if you were to lie down in nature, or rest against a tree with your spine against the tree, and really notice your own body. Your body is part of your Feminine being in manifestation. Really experiencing your body, feelings, and energy when you’re in nature is a way you can amplify your reception of the Feminine. Some of you do this naturally. That is a Feminine practice.

 

There are other Feminine practices that are not so much what you might call a meditation. They are ways of connecting with the Feminine that take you into your heart. The practices and teachings I gave that Mercedes recorded in the first book, Mary Magdalene Beckons, are very much about this. They are practices of making use of your emotions in a very particular way that lead you into your heart and heart space. These practices reconnect you with the Divine in a Feminine pathway. So emotions can be used as a Feminine pathway.

 

If you’re not sure what I’m talking about, reading the book Mary Magdalene Beckons may be a great support. Mercedes also offers a class where she helps people understand the process of letting emotions take you to God and learn the practice for doing that very deeply. We support people learning that practice.

 

Sexuality is another very Feminine form of connecting with the Divine. Sacred sexuality is very much a Feminine pathway for connecting with the Divine.

 

In all of these practices, there are both Masculine and Feminine components. For example, sacred sexuality is very much about uniting the Masculine and the Feminine, and there are many Masculine aspects to it. There is a clear consciousness practice within sacred sexuality, which is one of the Masculine aspects. But overall the practice of sacred sexuality leans towards the Feminine because it’s very much engaging your sexual energy, which is a Feminine manifestation in your world.

 

The same can be said of the emotional practice. Overall it’s a Feminine practice. But it has many Masculine aspects, too, including consciousness aspects and ways to use your mind to support the emotional practice. These are very balanced practices but they engage the Feminine much more strongly than many traditional spiritual practices do.

 

There are some traditional spiritual practices that are much more in the Feminine. For example, shamanic paths have often used Feminine pathways. An example is when they use drumming or sacred substances to transport people into higher realms. Those realms are still realms of manifestation. The experiences people have in those realms are very much experiences of the Divine Feminine. That’s an example of a spiritual practice that is based more in the Feminine. Again, it has Masculine aspects, but the practice is more oriented towards the Feminine.

 

There are many different paths. Again, the recommendation we suggest is find the path that is strongest for you. You will know that because it opens your heart and you feel yourself filled with love, and it opens your higher mind and you feel yourself resting in consciousness. Those are the signs that a path is supporting you.

 

Then there is the further practice of uniting the Masculine and Feminine—uniting your consciousness and your love. This happens naturally on its own, but it can be supported with practices, too. This is something that will be given and included as part of this body of work that is becoming the new spirituality that you’re calling “CommunionTM.” There will be practices that are very specifically oriented towards uniting the Masculine and Feminine. We will be making sure that those are clarified and available to all.

YESHUA and MARY MAGDALENE: Our Roles As Divine Masculine and Feminine

Received by Mercedes Kirkel

 

Yeshua: I wish to clarify something. My beloved Mary Magdalene and I often take the roles of the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine. It’s very natural for us to do this. It is very joyful for us to do this, even as we both are fully connected to our own Masculine and Feminine within.

 

Nonetheless, it is our choice and our joy to rest, oftentimes, in these positions—where I am holding the space of pure consciousness in relation to Mary, as she holds the space of manifestation in relation to me.

 

When we are present together, it is oftentimes most natural—for both of us—for Mary to be the one who speaks, as I rest in consciousness and send my blessing from that space. I certainly will speak if there is anything I wish to contribute or to add.

 

Mary has my full blessings to communicate for both of us. I am so grateful to her for her brilliance, her wisdom, and her amazing ability to communicate with all. I recognize and honor her to the highest degree for her service to all beings.

MARY MAGDALENE and YESHUA: How Ascension Will Happen

Sriyantra_By Bipzy (Own work)

Received by Mercedes Kirkel

[Note from Mercedes: This is a continuation of a communication from Mary, in which she describes the qualities of the Divine Masculine and Feminine, and how they relate to the ascension process.]

 

Mary Magdalene: The natural relationship of the Masculine and Feminine is a relationship of pure union.

 

This is the essence of reflection of Mother-Father God, because Mother-Father God are absolutely in union with each other, always. All of manifestation is actually reflecting the union of Mother-Father God, as long as your consciousness is open to it.

 

Our desire is to help you shift into the consciousness of understanding what this is, in very practical ways, so that you can unite your Divine Masculine and Feminine.

 

More than anything else, the work on your part of uniting your Divine Masculine and Feminine is going to change your life. It is also going to change your entire world and the whole Earth realm.

 

Everything that you do for yourself is always affecting the whole. In fact, it’s creating the whole.

 

This is the way this ascension process is going to happen—by all of you, one by one, doing your work and changing your consciousness. Through that, you will change your reality and manifestation to one of total union of the Masculine and the Feminine.

MARY MAGDALENE and YESHUA: What Is the Divine Feminine?

Shantanu_Meets_Goddess_Ganga_by_Warivick_Goble

Received by Mercedes Kirkel

Mary Magdalene: The Divine Feminine is the essence of manifestation. The Divine Feminine is the vibratory energy of manifestation. It is manifestation in all its forms. This can span from the densest form, which most of you are experiencing right now as being on Earth (though there are actually even denser forms). But manifestation can span from concrete forms, such as physicality, all the way up to very subtle forms. These subtle forms could be the angelic realm, or other subtle manifestations and experiences that some of you may have had, where you have visions or you hear subtle sounds. All of that, the entire continuum, is part of manifestation.

 

Manifestation is a huge spectrum, from this relatively low frequency of physical manifestation up to a very high frequency of very exalted planes or dimensions, where you experience lights and sounds that oftentimes feel very blissful. Bliss is one of the qualities of the Divine Feminine, in her most exalted form is pure love.

 

In your world, the Divine Feminine is everything that is manifest, including your body, your emotions, and your energy. Your energy includes your sexual energy, sexuality, and sexual experiences. The Divine Feminine includes all of physicality, all of the world.

 

If you think about many spiritual traditions, especially in the past, many of these traditions excluded the Divine Feminine from spirituality. It wasn’t considered spiritual to be connected to your body, or to be emotional or even connected to your emotions, or to be engaging sexuality. Those things were considered the opposite of spirituality. Often the recommendation was to separate yourself from those things if you wanted to be spiritual.

 

We’re especially interested in addressing any vestiges of that consciousness, because that is really referring to separating from the Feminine. One of the ways the consciousness of separating from the Feminine has been used is to support people in connecting with the Divine Masculine. But we are suggesting a different path that doesn’t require negating either the Masculine or the Feminine. In fact, it requires embracing both, to the point that both can be in their natural relationship with each other, which is a relationship of pure union.

What Did Mary Magdalene Look Like?

By Mercedes Kirkel

This week I found something intriguing on the internet. I learned that some Brazilian scientists are using 3D imaging technology to reconstruct the faces of various saints. Based on that, they’re producing life-size busts of what they believe the individuals actually looked like.

 

One of the people they’ve done this with is Mary Magdalene.

 

Working from a preserved skull that’s kept in a church in Saint-Maximin-la-Sainte-Baume in southern France—claimed to be the skull of Mary Magdalene—they eventually came up with this image of Mary:

 

Saint_Mary_Magdalene_-_Digital_facial_reconstruction by Cicero Moraes

What I was first struck by in seeing this image was how close it was to the picture of Mary that’s on the front cover of MARY MAGDALENE BECKONS. Mary personally guided me in the creation of that cover image. Here’s a comparison of the two:

 

Layout 1

Beyond that, I really liked how the image the Brazilian scientists came up with had dark skin and hair, as I think this is probably accurate. I believe Mary very likely came from Egypt, and perhaps was a descendant of the Queen of Sheba, who came from Egypt/Ethiopia. Since coming to believe this, I’ve wished that the image of Mary on MARY MAGDALENE BECKONS had darker skin. But Mary didn’t guide me to that. Perhaps she thought having dark hair and eyes was enough, as even that is a great stretch for many people.

 

What I do know is that Mary has cautioned against getting caught up in the external details of her life in the past. She views that as a distraction from her actual work and gift to us as spiritual teacher and guide.

 

Why is it that so many of us want to know the human details surrounding Yeshua (Jesus) and Mary’s lives? What will knowing those “facts” really give us? How much does it actually matter what color their hair or skin was? Where they were from? Whether they were married or had sex? How many children they had? And on and on…

 

What all that really tells us about is ourselves. If we’re drawn to those parts of their lives, they’re likely reflecting aspects of ourselves and our world that we’re not yet at peace with.

 

Are we at peace with a God-man loving a woman? Being sexual? Having a family? Are we at peace with a Goddess-woman being equal to a God-Man? With her having dark skin and coming from Africa? What does that say about us?

 

Mary’s focus with me has always been upon our spiritual growth. She has always shone her light on all of us rather than herself. This seems completely consistent with what I understand about what she and Yeshua did during their incarnation two thousand years ago. Their interest was in helping the people of that time grow spiritually. They didn’t talk about themselves and their background. That’s why we know so little about them. They spoke about us and our relationship to God.

 

My interactions with Mary have been just the same. She has endless passion for God and for helping us realize the same depth of connection with God that she lives and radiates. When I’m in her presence, that’s what I feel, very powerfully. I’m transported into her exceedingly blissful state, and any questions about who she was or other mundane aspects of life melt away. I’m blessed to regularly experience this and I find it to be tremendously satisfying.

 

Am I still curious about what she looked like and where she came from? Yes. I see that as a natural part of being incarnated in human form, to be interested in the details and lives of other incarnated beings, especially those you have a profound relationship with. But I’m also aware that these “details” and “stories” aren’t the real substance of my relationship with Mary. For me, it’s the help she brings to me and so many others—through her profound wisdom and the transmission of her state. That’s the real gold, the gem inside the wrapper, regardless of the form the “wrapper” takes.

 

My recommendation is: Enjoy the wrapper, but don’t mistake it for the gem inside.

MARY MAGDALENE: The Purpose of Kundalini Experiences

Image by Nico36~commonswiki

Image by Nico36~commonswiki

Received by Mercedes Kirkel

Question: I’m not sure how to use kundalini energy.

 

Mary Magdalene: A kundalini experience can be a taste, a window…

 

Questioner: Is it good to experience it?

 

Mary Magdalene: I cannot say without going into greater depth with you about your particular experience.

 

There is a certain danger in becoming enamored of experience. It’s like chasing a false god—wanting to have the experience again or thinking this is “the way” to have that experience.

 

In general, kundalini experiences are purifications. It’s a sign of something being purified in you. The purification may be allowing something in you to open up.

 

Be gentle. Be careful. Do not invoke more purification than is supportive of you.

 

Questioner: Thank you. I understand.

 

Mary Magdalene: I love you all so very much. I feel waves of love moving through my heart, tears coming, it is so powerful. This is a great gift that we all share. Thank you for sharing this with me.

 

I call forth all the blessings for each and all that will serve your path, your growth, your hearts, your union with God. So may it be.

 

In love, I AM Mary Magdalene.

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.

5 Ascension Insights Most People Aren’t Talking About: Insight #4

swords10

By Mercedes Kirkel


INSIGHT #4:
THIS IS A DEATH PROCESS

We’re dying to the third dimension.

 

We’re dying to our old way of being. We’re dying to our previous beliefs of what our life would consist of.

 

Some of what people are experiencing seems remarkably similar to what people go through who are physically dying. There can be a sense of loneliness. There can be increasing ambivalence about things that used to seem important. There can be increasing difficulty functioning in the old ways that seemed necessary to survive. Things you used to enjoy socially don’t seem attractive or important anymore.

 

You don’t seem able to “do your work” anymore. You may feel anxiety about covering your physical and financial needs, perhaps alternating with apathy about your old life and/or increasing acceptance of the changes occurring.

 

There may be an intensified longing to go “home.” You may sense a need to finish some soul-work, as part of completing your soul contract for this lifetime.

 

When I told one of my friends about what was happening to me, he said, “You’re not going to die on me, are you?” My response was that I didn’t know what was going to happen.

 

Physical-death may be one of the avenues this transition could take. It certainly seems to be a kind of spiritual death.

 

I believe one of the main things holding us to the third dimension is the belief in death as the opposite, or end, of life. This is possibly the most fundamental form that duality takes in this dimension—perceiving death as the enemy or opposer of life. A great deal of our energy in 3D is spent “fighting” to survive and live. This consciousness is reflected in what doctors sometimes say—that they “won” or “lost” the battle, when referring to a patient living or dying.

 

Through the ascension process, we move into a whole different relationship with life and death. We come to understand death as part of life, a continuation of the process of our soul in another form. As Mary Magdalene said in Mary Magdalene Beckons:

 

There is a veil over your remembering of all the lifetimes you have lived and of all the other realms you have been in between your lifetimes. There is a veil over your remembering of your greater self, which is so much larger than the part of you that you’re aware of in this third-dimensional reality. And there is a veil over your absolute connection to, your absolute inherence in, God. If you could remember all that and know it as your present-time and never-changing reality, you wouldn’t have the idea of death that so many of you have. You would see death as a change of clothes, like a snake shedding its skin. When you die, you’ve outgrown your physical circumstances and you’re ready to move on to something that’s going to serve your next phase of your soul’s journey. You might think of it as being something like getting a new car.

 

For the ascension process to occur, we must stop fighting death—be it physical or spiritual death. Instead, we allow our relationship to reality to transform. Then we begin to experience what is being born anew, in and through and as us.

5 Ascension Insights Most People Aren’t Talking About: Insight #1

swords02

By Mercedes Kirkel

 

INSIGHT #1: NO ONE KNOWS WHAT’S HAPPENING

 

I certainly don’t “know” what’s happening. All I have are my experiences and beliefs.

 

What I trust are actual experiences—my own experiences and the experiences of others.

 

I hold beliefs much more lightly. I evaluate beliefs to see if they match my experiences and intuition. I see if the beliefs support me in being the kind of person I want to be. If they do, I make space for them as possibilities, perhaps even likely possibilities. If not, I let them go.

 

But even if I resonate with a belief and choose to keep it in my collection, that still doesn’t mean I “know” that thing to be true. It remains a belief until it’s my actual experience.

 

I haven’t met anyone in the third dimension who I believe “knows” what this ascension process is all about or where it’s leading. Many of us have ideas, including things we’ve heard from others. But that hasn’t convinced me that those things are facts. They might be possible. They also may not be what is happening or is going to happen.

 

I think it’s critical to differentiate beliefs from experience. If we’re aware that what we’re thinking is a belief, rather than something that’s been experienced, we tend to be much more balanced in how we hold that idea.

 

Having that kind of relationship to our own beliefs leads to being aware when others are expressing beliefs—even if those others think the things they’re expressing are “THE truth.” We can see those others as equals with their own beliefs, just like us. Doing so, we can stay in our own power, rather than giving our power away to them (through submission or rebellion).

 

We can also be respectful of others’ beliefs, even if they don’t match ours. Respect and agreement are two different things.

 

I believe that kind of balance, awareness, equality, empowerment, and respect are all signs of the ascension process being underway. They’re also some of the inner divine qualities that Mary Magdalene talks about as being bridges to our own divinity.

 

One way of seeing the ascension process is that we’re shifting from being mind-and knowledge-based to being based in our own divinity, which we connect to through our heart. That inner divinity is something we can experience.

 

That deeply resonates with me and calls to my soul.

Am I Ascending or Dying?

Fra_Angelico

By Mercedes Kirkel

During last Sunday’s channeling of Yeshua and Mary Magdalene, a woman asked a question about healing from sexual abuse. What happened next amazed me. Rather than immediately responding to the content of the question, Mary Magdalene responded with a flood of feeling. She went into a depth of grief I have never experienced before. She began to cry through me, weeping for the pain that this person, and so many others with similar experiences, have gone through. And she expressed her great sadness to the woman, several times.

 

I know it was Mary weeping and not me because I have always been extremely blocked and unable to cry, except on rare occasions. I know it was her grief, because I was aware of my own response to the question, and I would not have gone into grief. I would have responded on a more mental level, answering with ideas, not feelings.

 

It’s not that I would have been cold or uncompassionate. I was aware, at least to a certain extent, of the trauma this person had likely been through. I would have responded with sensitivity.

 

But I wouldn’t have let myself feel their grief, not to my depths. I wouldn’t have opened myself to the full extent of what this person had probably experienced. I don’t live like that. I have guarding to protect myself from feeling pain, especially when it doesn’t seem to involve me.

 

But I experienced Mary as having a very different response. What I experienced is that Mary doesn’t separate herself like I do. She didn’t separate herself from the person who asked the question. And she didn’t separate herself from the pain.

 

As I write that, I imagine you asking: “Is that wise? Is that safe? Is that what I’m supposed to be doing?”

 

I asked myself the same questions.

 

Is it safe to trust this world enough to open to it fully in feeling? Ultimately, I think that’s deciding whether to trust God. Or as they say in 12-step groups, coming to believe that a power greater than ourselves can restore us to sanity.

 

We’ve been living in an “insane” world that has taught us that we can’t allow ourselves to feel everything. It’s not safe. We won’t survive.

 

Yet I believe Mary is calling us to the exact opposite—she’s inviting us to feel everything. I think she would say that’s the direct path to our sanity, if by sanity we mean well-being in God. And it’s also (not coincidentally) the path to the Feminine.

 

Every time we hold back from feeling to any extent, we’re holding back from the Feminine. We’re denying the Feminine. We’re saying we don’t want the Feminine, don’t need it, and would be better off without it—thank you very much!

 

But Mary says differently. And I saw on Sunday that Mary lives what she teaches. She feels completely. 100%. No holding back. Nada.

 

So those of us who love the Feminine, who long for the Feminine, who are calling for the Feminine… Are we really ready to do this? Because it has to start with us. Otherwise we’ll just be being a wolf in sheep’s clothing—pretending to be the Feminine but still acting out the Masculine-denying-the-Feminine.

 

And that’s what I saw about myself. I still have a ways to go to stop denying the Feminine, first and foremost in myself. That brings me grief.

 

Thankfully, there’s more to this story. I got more than just a reflection from Mary of how I’m still shutting down to feeling. I also received an enormous blessing. It’s taken me nearly a week to understand that part. But now the pieces of the puzzle are coming together and I’m starting to see the whole.

 

After the channeling, I was exceedingly exhausted. I felt perplexed by that because I’m usually enlivened from channeling higher beings. Experiencing their state so directly has the effect of lifting me up into their energy and consciousness.

 

So I wasn’t expecting to be so exhausted after the webinar. I attributed it to all the work I’d done to create and manifest that event, which had been considerable. I took the rest of the day off, relaxing with friends and going to the ocean. Yet the exhaustion continued throughout the following days, to the point that I started to wonder what was going on. Had I really burned myself out?

 

I woke up on Thursday in a dramatically different state. I felt like I was halfway out of my body. My physical state seemed strange and unfamiliar, and I found myself struggling to perform ordinary activities. I had the thought that maybe I was dying, even though I didn’t really believe I was physically dying. But that was the closest thing I could relate what I was going through to.

 

I also had the thought that maybe I was ascending, going into the fourth dimension. That felt very taboo to even consider that, let alone hold it as being what was happening. “Who do I think I am? Jesus?” Yet even Jesus said “All this and more shall you do.” And isn’t ascending what I’m helping people to prepare for through all the work I’m doing? So maybe it was possible that it was actually happening, though I fundamentally doubted that, too.

 

A few hours passed and I asked a friend to be with me. With her holding me, I was able to let go further into the process. I began sobbing deeply, feeling the pain of the third dimension. At the same time, I was feeling volts of electricity (which I guessed was kundalini) blasting away at my second chakra, the center of my emotions. I felt like Spirit was trying to break through my blocks to feeling that I hold in my energy-body.

 

At some point the pain of this realm that I was experiencing became personal to me. I felt my own pain of never being able to do enough to relieve the suffering of this realm. And then the storm subsided. I became calm and felt myself surrounded by angels. I felt their peace and joy as my own. And I received the understanding that this is always my state. Peace and joy are continuous, even in the midst of pain arising. It’s like the sun, which is always shining, even when clouds occlude it.

 

The only thing that cuts me off from peace and joy is if I choose to stop feeling. If I shut down in order to not feel pain, I also stop feeling joy and peace. On the other hand, if I feel the pain, it resolves itself and returns me to what’s prior. Ultimately, that’s God.

 

Of course, this is exactly what Mary teaches in Mary Magdalene Beckons. And opening to my second chakra was the first practice I was given by Mary in Sublime Union. I was just experiencing myself  at a whole new depth—a depth I don’t tend to be aware of. I was being shown my refusal to feel at this depth, and being asked to let go of that refusal.

 

It really was a death. A part of me has learned to survive by cutting off from feeling at this depth. That part was dying.

 

Now I feel more sober about the ascension process. I understand that we’re going to have to allow our old ways to die for new ones to come in. That means parts of us dying. Ways of being that we’ve crafted to survive or protect ourselves or feel safe. We’re being asked to let go of those and open to new, higher, more supportive ways.

 

That takes trust—trust in ourself, trust in life, and ultimately trust in God. Trust is also a very Feminine attribute. It’s part of our inner Feminine, regardless of whether we’re men, women, or whatever.

 

So the gift I received is to feel and trust. I’m still integrating it. And it is a form of death to my old familiar way of being and surviving.

 

My belly feels very vulnerable, ready to contract and shut down at every lapse of awareness into the old, familiar pattern of defense. My energy body feels exceedingly sensitized and I’m aware of its high vibration, almost like the vibration of a hummingbird’s wings. My mind feels a bit dazed, yet it’s slowly starting to relax and integrate the new. And my heart feels like it’s beginning to open in a new way.

 

I’m especially excited about my heart.

 

I have a feeling of concern about the response this may bring up in all of you. I can imagine you might feel averse to the idea of needing to feel everything, including all the pain. Maybe you’ll decide you don’t like what I’m saying and will leave. That possibility feels both scary and sad to me.

 

The reality is, I’m still not thrilled about “feeling everything.” I wish there was an easier way. But I don’t think there is.

 

However, I have one big “ace” on my side. I may still be learning to fully trust God, but I do trust Mary Magdalene. I have the advantage of getting to feel Mary so directly. The same is true of Yeshua. Their state of being is supremely attractive. I have no question about my desire to attain that state myself.

 

So if feeling is what it takes, I’m willing. I hope you are, too, because I want companionship on this path. I already have some really good spiritual companions in high places. They’re inviting all of us to join them with open arms. And open hearts.
