MARY MAGDALENE: Identifying With Others

Melisenta by Josephine Wall, www.josephinewall.com.uk

Received by Mercedes Kirkel

Question: A while ago I was in a group of spiritually minded people and I had a feeling of loss of identity, like I was skipping between persons. One moment I would feel like one person; in another moment I would feel like another person. It felt like I was tuning into the group energy. Is that what you are talking about in describing the fourth dimension?

 

Mary Magdalene: It’s an aspect.

 

It may be that you are opening to a certain kind of connection, awareness, and fluidity in your consciousness. And it may be that there’s another aspect that is not quite in balance, not quite as fully developed, because you don’t need to lose yourself. In the full experience there’s a sense of expansion of yourself, to include all.

 

So it may have been a kind of opening, but not a full opening. Your experience may feed you in a certain way, which will very likely lead somewhere else that will be more inclusive of your connection to yourself, and more inclusive of your having choice in the midst of your experience.

 

You are always in choice. It is not the case that you are simply at the effect of your experience. This is a fourth-dimensional learning.

 

The fourth-dimension is very much like the realm of dreams. This is a good way of understanding this because you are familiar with dreams and understand them.

 

Part of what you’re developing in the fourth dimension is your ability to manifest. That begins with realizing you are always in choice. Dreams can feel like things are happening to you and that you are kind of blown around by the winds of who knows what in a dream. But that is what you might call an “entry-level” experience [Mary laughs]. Eventually you develop strength and skill, where you are at choice about your manifestation, just as you are at choice about your manifestation in the third-dimension. But that may not yet be obvious.

 

Questioner: It feels like I am opening up to a certain level of sensitivity that I am not used to.

 

Mary Magdalene: Yes. It does sound that way to me, as well. And those things can be uncomfortable. They are unfamiliar. And sometimes the discomfort is telling you that that particular form, or the way it’s showing up, doesn’t include everything you need. It can be guiding you to other parts to develop and strengthen, which will be more of what you need in a holistic way.

MARY MAGDALENE: Overcoming Sexual Challenges

Received by Mercedes Kirkel

Question: I’d like help with sexuality and the hurt that has arisen between my partner and me in that area. I would love to bypass the traditional orgasm and to come to a different place. There is a deep knowing in me where I know this can be different. But I feel very stuck. I’d like insight, clarity, and help.

 

Mary Magdalene: I thank you for your question. It sounds to me that there are a number of different things going on. One is that you have a kind of a conflict within yourself between your drive or attraction toward more conventional sexual engagement and your desire and understanding of a different way—perhaps you might look at it as a higher or more sacred way—to engage sexually. Is that one aspect?

 

Questioner: That’s one aspect, yes.

 

Mary Magdalene: Another aspect involves a kind of a conflict between you and your partner around engaging this?

 

Questioner: Yes.

 

Mary Magdalene: I wish I had an easier solution for you. My truth is that you must each, as individuals, be guided to what is true for you. There is a way of doing this through open-heartedness and staying in love with each other. It does not necessarily mean that you will have the outcome you are hoping for or the outcome you are dreading, either one. There are actually many, many ways it could play out. But you won’t know that until you give yourself to God.

 

You see, this hasn’t come up randomly in your life or in your relationship. This is likely a very central part of your soul path that you have both chosen in this lifetime for your growth. Humans suffer the most when they are avoiding their soul path.

 

There are different ways to explore sacred sexuality with a partner. One of the challenges that partners can get into with sacred sexuality is thinking that it’s black or white: “We have to do it all one way or all another way.” This black or white kind of thinking is one of the traps of the third dimension. And it’s almost never the case.

 

In fact, as you grow and develop, sexuality is something that you are going to more and more be the creator of. You are going to be creating what your form of sexuality will be like. You will do this with yourself, first and foremost, and then with whatever partners you choose. And it doesn’t have to look like anyone else’s sexuality, whatever they call it—sacred, profane, who knows? You are the creator of what is possible and most suitable for you. And then, with a partner it becomes a joint creative venture.

 

Within that context you may choose to explore certain things. One option is to read books about sacred sexuality. But that is not your only avenue. There are people who can teach and coach you. There are courses and workshops. This does not mean, again, that you should be doing what’s being presented or that this is what you’re signing up to do. It can be an open-ended exploration and from there you become the creators of your life.

 

Very likely there are emotional blocks underlying this issue that may not be obvious or clear. If you were to get to the root of the emotional blocks and see what they were trying to draw you to, there very likely could be worlds of possibility that would open up to you, which you are not in touch with at this point.

 

I would urge you to look at this as not just a struggle in the sexual or relational arena, but as something very central to your spiritual path in this lifetime. If the word “spiritual” doesn’t resonate, you could just say “human” path or your “growth” path. It’s something that you’re both wanting to deal with in some way and I would definitely say both. It may be different for each of you, but somehow each of your parts fits with the other person’s particular exploration.

 

That may help you to loosen some of the stuckness, which includes thinking there are only three solutions: One is to go back to the way you were, one is to change to the new form of sacred sexuality (whatever you’re thinking that is), and the third is to separate.

 

From my point of view there are many more possible solutions. I don’t know what the solutions are in your particular case but I know the mechanics of these processes. The way that you are describing it now is what it looks like when you’re not dealing with the deeper issues. Your emotions will lead you to the deeper issues, if you allow them. And that is what I recommend.

 

I believe there is a different avenue than the one that seems to be at play, or the one that seems to be the context in which you’re holding this. Those different avenues are what the emotions will guide you to. And it might be quite surprising where that leads you.

 

I very much trust that your emotions will guide you to your guidance, each of you. Ultimately, they will guide you together to find your way through this, if you allow yourself to receive their guidance. And you will also receive the gifts of this circumstance, which I have no doubt are there.

 

This is all I feel called to say at this point

 

Questioner’s Partner: This was helpful but a question keeps popping up. Is this relationship beneficial to our greatest good—towards each other, and ourselves, and the people around us? Or are we in a kind of jail of fear?

 

Mary Magdalene: I would guess that you have hit a wall of fear around this issue. It is your choice if you want to make use of that fear or avoid it. From my perspective, if you avoid it, it is not beneficial to you, or each other, or other people that you are affecting. If you choose to let in the help that’s being offered in the form of this fear, I have no doubt that it will be helpful to you, each other, and others affected by you. But you may need help in doing that. It may not be clear how to do that.

 

This is so often the case in the third-dimension. We use the example of Mercedes, who is very highly trained in this process and very skilled at helping others with this. And yet [Mary laughs] when Mercedes hits her challenges and places of fear, it is very difficult for her, also.

 

This is part of the great human quality, that you really require each other in a very fundamental way. You could get through this entirely on your own. But it’s likely that you will go through it much more quickly and easily with the help of others. And it is challenging to do on your own.

 

It is like the story or joke that some of you may know about the difference between heaven and hell, where in hell the beings are starving because they can only eat with implements that are longer than their arms. In heaven, they have the same implements but they have figured out that they need to feed each other. [Mary laughs.]

 

I see this as a joke. I don’t have this as a belief about heaven and hell, or even beliefs about heaven and hell altogether. But it is a very good analogy for one of the differences between the third and the fourth dimension. Help from others is at times exceedingly valuable. This may be one of those times, especially when you’re dealing with core issues, which I would call your soul issues. These are the issues that you especially came to work on in this lifetime.

 

In the third dimension, when you come up against those issues (which you might call being triggered or having a button pushed), suddenly there’s this fog and you can’t see things. You seem to lose the competence and clarity you may have at other times. This is when it can be extremely helpful to have the support of others.

 

Part of the transition into higher dimensions is that eventually you will move into less identification with being a separate individual. You will more and more have a sense of being a part of something greater, including a connection with other beings that becomes your identity. Over time it will become natural to relate to life in a more group-like way, as opposed to a very individual, separated way.

 

But at the third dimension you’re at the beginning of this transition. You’re still dealing with other aspects of the third-dimension—power dynamics, the beliefs that there is not enough, that you have to fight to survive, and that if you don’t have power you may not survive. To ask for help at the vulnerable places of connection to your soul path can feel like you’re giving away all your power. It can feel quite scary at the third dimension. You may think that asking for help is stupid or the exact wrong thing to do.

 

This is part of what makes the third dimension a challenging place. Much of what you have learned and much of what you believe does not really support your highest good. You are in the process of finding your way with all this.

 

The heart is one of your greatest benefits and guides. The more you develop your skill and tools to connect with your heart, to follow your heart, and even to recognize what your heart guidance is, the more you will find your way, and the less you will be influenced by the insidiousness of the beliefs of separation, of not having enough, of the necessity of power, struggle, and survival. You will not become immune, you will become wonderfully strong, for yourself and for others.

 

This I invoke and wish to support as much as I can.

MARY MAGDALENE: Healing Body Shame and Sexual Shame

Received by Mercedes Kirkel

Question: I wonder if you might speak of the ascension process that we’re in.

 

Mary Magdalene: That is a very large topic. Is there a more specific question relative to the ascension process that you have?

 

Questioner: Not really, whatever you feel would be appropriate for our group.

 

Mary Magdalene: What is your question? What does your heart long for?

 

Questioner: Well, I often feel myself move from the third dimension to the fourth, and even sometimes the fifth, but I don’t stay very long. I suppose it’s natural to move back and forth between all three. When might I be able to maintain my presence in the fourth or fifth, and not do so much shifting around?

 

Mary Magdalene: Yes. This is a natural experience, especially as you progress further and further into the ascension process. You will experience spending time in higher dimensions—which for most of you will be the fourth or fifth initially. In general, you will not stay in the higher dimensions until you have completed your work in the third dimension. For most of you, the work you need to complete is about uniting the Masculine and Feminine. It is first about strengthening your Feminine, and especially your connection to feeling.

 

Most of you are heavily indoctrinated into cutting off from your feelings and living in your mind, to the point that you do not realize how severe this indoctrination has been. Your movie “The Matrix” is a kind of symbolic story of that. For most of you, this process of transcending the third dimension has to do with regaining your access to the Feminine. This is first and foremost about regaining access to feeling, as well as access to your body and your sexuality.

 

More than anything, your work with your body has to do with feeling shame that you carry relative to your body, and then loving your body as a temple. For most of you, shame is the great block in the arena of your body.

 

It is similar with sexuality. Most of you carry shame relative to your sexuality. Because of this shame, You have not allowed yourself to open to the pathway of sexuality as a spiritual process for carrying you into the higher dimensions and supporting you. You have limited your relationship to sexuality to be exclusively physical, which is a great limitation upon it.

 

All of you are sexual, whether you are engaging with a partner in a sexual way or not. You all have sexual energy. In ancient times, learning the pathway of sexuality was recognized as an important part of the ascension process. It was part of the Egyptian temple process and it was carried through the Egyptian temples to India. In India it became known as the path of kundalini, also known as the serpent pathway. Leaning the spiritual aspects of sexuality is an important aspect of your learning. For most of you, it will require healing of wounding, especially in the first and second chakras, and healing of shame for you to be able to access your sexuality fully.

 

Then there is the opening to the emotions, especially the painful emotions. This includes learning to hold the emotions such as sorrow, to mourn as a sacrament. It includes learning to hold fear as pointing to your own divinity, as opposed to something to be cut off from, or do battle with, or go away from, or suppress. Because when you do any of these latter things, you cut off from your power.

 

When you open to these Feminine parts of yourself, your mind—which now tends to dominate you—becomes a lover of the Feminine. Then your mind relaxes. It becomes in service to the Feminine, like a knight in service to the queen. Then the king may step forward. The king is your higher Masculine, your sacred Masculine. Once the king comes forward, he and the queen may join in marriage.

 

When that happens the gateway will open for you to transition. You will be able to change your kingdom into a higher dimensional one. For most of you this will be the fourth dimension, which more than anything is about manifestation.

 

The marriage of the king and queen energy is essential for you to be full in the school of manifestation that you enter in the fourth dimension. For most of you, this will be your next arena. It requires the completion of your gifts, your growth, and the foundation in the third dimension that you incarnated here for.

 

Is there more about that you wish to ask about?

 

Questioner: Do you have any advice on how to heal the shame?

 

Mary Magdalene: Relative to… ?

 

Questioner: Sexuality.

 

Mary Magdalene: It may be helpful to go back and to locate the time when the shame began, as an anchor or a point of consciousness. This may be supportive in guiding you to the part of your inner divinity that you disconnected from at that point. Can you speak to your own experience of the time when your shame began?

 

Questioner: Yes. When I was fourteen there was an older man, my teacher, who was attracted to me. I enjoyed the attention, but I was deeply afraid and ashamed of the sexual nature of it. I think I’ve spent much time trying—maybe in my mind—to understand why all that happened and trying to forgive him. But I don’t know that I felt the unconditional love for myself.

 

Mary Magdalene: Yes. This is a great trap with not embracing the Feminine. You can go too quickly into the Masculine aspect of this practice—the forgiveness aspect—when you’re not yet ready. Forgiveness is important and will come, but it needs to happen in an organic way.

 

What was it that you feared? If you could give voice to the fear, what was the fear?

 

Questioner: That I was wrong for wanting that attention. I get confused. I get into my mind, I suppose.

 

Mary Magdalene: Yes. This is the essence of shame, that there is something the matter with you for your experience, something the matter with who you are. There are judgements there. When shame arises, it is always interwoven with judgement, such as “You shouldn’t be enjoying this,” or “You shouldn’t be wanting this.” Is that accurate?

 

Questioner: Yes.

 

Mary Magdalene: Were there any other judgements as well?

 

Questioner: I was also deeply afraid. When I think about wanting to be with the Masculine, and the surrender and trust involved, I just want to skip the healing part and bypass the fear.

 

Mary Magdalene: Was your fear pointing to a need for trust?

 

Questioner: Back then I needed safety.

 

Mary Magdalene: Yes.

 

In this moment, can you give yourself the safety that you were longing for and so needed?

 

Questioner: Yes, I can.

 

Mary Magdalene: Excellent. Let yourself fill up with that beautiful safety.

 

Then, when you’re ready, add in the experience of your sexuality, while staying connected to your inner divinity of safety. What happens for you when you do that?

 

Questioner: I feel the disconnection in my body. I feel the tendency to go into my head and stay there.

 

Mary Magdalene: Can you go to the place in your body where the disconnection is happening?

 

Questioner: My lower chakras.

 

Mary Magdalene: Can you ask your lower chakras what they want to communicate to you right now?

 

Questioner: They love me.

 

Mary Magdalene: And what else?

 

Questioner: That there’s nothing wrong with me. I’m not broken.

 

Mary Magdalene: Yes.

 

Are you able to see these chakras, these parts of yourself, in their beauty and purity and wholeness? Are you able to embrace them?

 

Questioner: Yes.

 

Mary Magdalene: That is your work for now. They will guide you from there.

 

Questioner: Thank you.

 

Mary Magdalene: Did you have another question?

 

Questioner: Yes. I was wondering if it’s the same process with shame of the body. Do you go back to where you feel it began?

 

Mary Magdalene: It is very often helpful. Sometimes it is not necessary. It is an artful process to see what is necessary. But if it is a deep and longstanding pattern, going back to where the pattern began can be helpful. Is body shame something you deal with?

 

Questioner: Yes.

 

Mary Magdalene: Are you aware of the moment when it began?

 

Questioner: I don’t know if I’m aware of the moment it began. But I’m aware of a moment when I felt that.

 

Mary Magdalene: Yes. That is all you need. Are you aware of the inner divine quality that you disconnected from in that event?

 

Questioner: It was the sense that I was okay, that there was nothing wrong with me, that I was perfect as I was.

 

Mary Magdalene: Yes, your divinity and the perfectness of your body.

 

Questioner: Yes.

 

Mary Magdalene: Can you go to the place inside that knows the perfection and divinity of your physical body?

 

Questioner: Yes.

 

Mary Magdalene: Can you give yourself to that place inside, like immersing yourself in a deep pool of that wonderful perfection, which is the divinity of you?

 

Questioner: Yes. It’s very freeing. It feels beautiful and pure and empowering.

 

Mary Magdalene: Yes. This is the place to return to again and again, to grow stronger in relationship to, and to stay connected to.

 

Questioner: Okay. Thank you so much, Mary.

MARY MAGDALENE: Trust Yourself

Received by Mercedes Kirkel

Question: On this path of opening up to a different experience, I still often feel fear or a kind of negativity. At those times, I question, “Is this really real?” and “Am I really experiencing this?—especially when I get messages or when the energy goes higher. Sometimes I feel a discord and I cannot follow the energy.

 

Mary Magdalene: When this happens, there are different parts of yourself that are responding differently. There is a part of yourself that is opening and there is a part of yourself that has blockage.

 

The direct path is to embrace the part of yourself that has blockage. There may be wounding there. There may be a need for mourning a hurt that was never fully mourned.

 

Many of you were trained not to mourn, not to grieve. So the wound got stuck in you and lives in you as a blockage rather having gone through the natural purification of the wound.

 

Just like a physical wound has a process of healing that it goes through, which is very natural, an emotional wound has that as well. But if you stop a part of the healing, such as the mourning, it doesn’t complete itself. So there may be a need for mourning—to go back and allow the mourning, to be with it, to embrace it, to let it carry you to its natural completion.

 

This is like a child who has not been trained to suppress. When they cry, there’s a natural pathway through their tears. It comes to a completion and they are moved to a different place. They are clear, just like a rain that has ended and the light returns. There may be a need for this in you.

 

Or there may be fear there that needs to be embraced and followed to its source. There is something real in your being that you are disconnected from. It may be a need for a kind of safety, emotional safety or physical safety. Or it could be something else that you’re disconnected from, such as acceptance, inclusion, belonging, trust of some kind. Only you will know for sure what it is.

 

You will know when this work has fulfilled itself because you will come to peace. You will come to your wholeness. So this is guiding you to your next step of growth in feeling and openness. Does this answer your question?

 

Questioner: Yes.

 

Mary Magdalene: So many of you learned, and were taught, to do a kind of battle against these experiences. You learned to call it resistance. But they are gifts. What they bring is important. If you are open to receive the mourning or the fear, and let it take you to Source, you receive the gifts. Then you will have the peace and the wholeness you so desire. You will have clarity of your path forward from there.

 

This is your inner guidance. This is why it is so important to give yourself space from your mind, to hear this inner guidance and be with it.

 

In the third dimension, you have been trained that others know more than you, that you have to get your guidance from some authority outside yourself. Truly, you can be helped by others, and there are others who have helped.

 

But in the fourth dimension you realize that you are always your own authority, your own channel, your own vessel of God. This is your ultimate, true authority. From that place you can receive help, you can receive instruction, but it does not take you away from this self connection. It supports the self connection. If it is not supporting your self connection then it is probably not in your best interest. Many of you are in a transition of learning to trust yourself. But you have everything you need.

The Magdalene Portal in Venice

By Mercedes Kirkel

 

In early June I began my most recent journey to Europe, traveling with my close friend, Martine.

 

On our first flight we had two remarkable experiences. The first involved a woman who I saw several times prior to boarding and who seemed familiar to me. To my surprise, we ended up sitting next to each other on the plane. I told her she seemed very familiar and asked her if I knew her, but neither of us could remember having met before. She inquired as to what I did. Hearing that I channeled Mary Magdalene, she seemed quite affected. When she asked my name, she recognized me as a Magdalene author. She then told me she had an entire collection of Magdalene books she’d been guided to read, but mine was the only one she resonated with as authentic.

 

The woman seemed quite amazed to find herself sitting beside me on the plane, suddenly experiencing me in her life as a very real person, rather than her previous, more abstract relationship to me as “an author.” For me, it was joyful to meet someone who’d been touched by my books. It also felt like the magic of the journey had begun, that the two of us had been seated next to each other and discovered our connection through Mary Magdalene.

 

The other powerful experience that day happened to my traveling companion, Martine. At one point during the flight she closed her eyes to meditate and went into a deep space. She sensed she’d entered another dimension. In this space, she was surrounded by loving beings who she was familiar with and who had quartz crystals with them. The beings gave her a band that encircled her head. Attached to the band were golden rectangular plates. She intuitively understood that the plates were for healing and protection. The experience was exceedingly peaceful, uplifting, and full of light.

 

After our first flight, we flew to the south of France, where I was leading the MAGDALENE HEART PATH IN FRANCE 2017 retreat, in which Martine was both participating and assisting. Immersing ourself in this magical region, with its profound connection to Mary Magdalene, I felt myself enter a profound higher-dimensional space. My impulse to communicate verbally receded far away as the days, and then weeks, merged together.

 

Two and a half weeks later, the retreat came to a close and Martine and I continued our journey in Venice. This was the realization of a dream for me, as I have past life memories of having been a courtesan in Venice and have longed to re-visit this place I once knew so well.

 

We stayed in a marvelous, old-style Venetian apartment, four stories above the lovely canals, with gondolas constantly passing below. I found myself magnetized to the windows, from which I waved and threw rose petals to the floating gondoliers and passengers below, calling out “buon giorno” and applauding the operatic arias and romantic music.

 

Yet sooner than we’d planned, we were ready to leave. We’d enjoyed the feeling of the city, especially the sacredness of the water and the sweetness of the neighborhood we were staying in—with its plaza, church, fountain, pizzeria, gelato, and outdoor restaurants. But the “attractions” of Venice hadn’t spoken to us or moved us the way we’d hoped and we were feeling somehow unfulfilled. We both had experiences of feeling angry when visiting the famous churches, which for me had to do with how patriarchal the churches felt (and perhaps, too, with memories of past-life interactions with the Church, which I suspect had ended badly for me). I also felt a growing frustration that the courtesans seemed to be completely written out of the present-time story of Venice. But we decided to stay, mostly because it was too last-minute to do anything else.

 

On our final day, we both woke up exceedingly happy and filled with love. Checking my email, I found an invitation from another Magdalene author, inviting me to participate in a peace ceremony for Mary’s upcoming feast day on July 22nd. The ceremony was centered around a labyrinth in a San Francisco church.

 

I was moved that this woman had reached out to include me in this celebration. I felt drawn to participate, yet also unsure about the form of the ceremony. I’d never felt a connection to the practice of walking a labyrinth and didn’t feel that as part of my path in relation to Mary Magdalene. I decided not to respond immediately, to give myself time to clarify what I wanted to do.

 

Shortly afterward Martine and I headed out to spend our last day in Venice. We wanted to take one last boat trip along the Grand Canal to do a water blessing. The weather was gorgeous, in spite of predictions for thunderstorms, and we found ourselves merrily traveling along new streets, trusting where our bodies were guiding us.

 

Before long, we realized we’d missed the bridge we were intending to cross. But we were enjoying the way we were going so much that we didn’t care. We continued on, not knowing where we were. Suddenly Martine pointed to a church in front of us. She felt drawn to the architecture of the church, which was round with a dome on top. Even more, she felt attracted to the striking symbol above the door of an upward-pointing triangle with a circle woven through it.

 

I was struck by something else. I immediately noticed it was the Church of Maria Maddalena, or Mary Magdalene, which I hadn’t even known existed in Venice.

 

We excitedly approached and opened the door. But neither of us was prepared for what we found on the other side.

 

Stepping inside the church, we immediately felt the sacredness of the simple, six-sided building, with light streaming into the center from the cupola of the dome. It reminded me of the remains of the Temple of Isis we’d seen in France. But the most amazing part was what was on the floor, right in the center of the circular space. We had walked into a church with a full-size labyrinth created from 888 large rose quartz crystals, with 5 very large, clear quartz crystals in the center.  Around the labyrinth were 6 golden rectangular paintings, each about 6 feet tall, with a seventh painting at the front, covering the altar, which was black with a luminous, very fine “X” painted through it.

 

It turned out that the paintings were a creation by the artist Slater Bradley titled “Sundoor at World’s End.” Bradley calls the paintings “solar shields,” which he says are a conduit for dimensional energy exchange. I couldn’t believe I was in a Magdalene church, with a rose quartz labyrinth, and giant paintings dedicated to exchanging dimensional energy—hidden in the middle of Venice! And only that morning I’d been saying I didn’t feel a connection between Mary Magdalene and labyrinths.

 

Martine excitedly began whispering to me that the paintings had the same images she’d seen in her meditation on our first flight of the trip, which had been on the plates attached to her headpiece!

 

We spent a very long time in the church. We slowly circumambulated from painting to painting, deeply taking in the transmission from each one. One at a time, we walked the labyrinth, even more slowly. My mind was completely empty and my walking was a whole-being prayer of communion with Mary Magdalene and Yeshua.

 

The center of the labyrinth felt like a portal to the fourth dimension. There was exquisite, inter-dimensional music playing softly and I began to tone my sacred mantra, with sound reverberating through my body and filling the domed, circular space. I have no idea how long I was there as time seemed to have stopped. Then ever so slowly I re-walked the labyrinth, sensing it’s different quarters as the quadrants of my brain and body.

 

I walked over to the bench on the side of the labyrinth and sat down. Across the church was a huge picture of Mary Magdalene. As Martine walked the labyrinth a second time, I fell into a powerful trance, in which Martine seemed to be an antennae sending me the full power of the labyrinth. I felt kundalini energy powerfully moving throughout my body. I became so tired I could barely hold myself up and had thoughts of laying down on the church floor to sleep (which I somehow resisted because I didn’t think the Italians would appreciate my doing that). Martine completed her second round and then another woman began her journey through the labyrinth, with me having yet another experience of receiving the power of the portal projected through this woman to me.

 

Finally Martine and I looked at each other, communicating without words that we were completely full and ready to move on. We floated out of the church, feeling amazed at what had occurred. I felt that Spirit had guided us to the real reason we’d come to Venice and we’d been given exactly what we needed.

 

Even now as I write this, I feel filled with gratitude and awe for having received this wonderful gift.

Yeshua and Mary Magdalene: The Purpose of Spirituality

Image by Joe Mabel

Received by Mercedes Kirkel

 

Question: What is the purpose of spirituality and is there any ending point of evolution or consciousness? Is it something like freedom? Where is it all going?

 

Mary Magdalene: From the Feminine point of view, the purpose of spirituality is to feel a whole lot better than you do right now! (Laughs) That’s why I was laughing.
Can you imagine feeling absolute bliss, absolute love all the time? Would that be attractive? I imagine so.

 

I will let Yeshua speak for the Masculine point of view.

 

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

 

Ultimately, there is absolutely no difference between the pure Feminine of absolute love and the pure Masculine of 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 also 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, which 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.

Ascension Update June 2017

Image By Olivier 92200

By Mercedes Kirkel

 

I’ve noticed that this recent period has been very intense for a lot of people.

 

I think it’s helpful to connect with the bigger picture in times like these. When I see a pattern of others having similar experiences, I feel reassured—not because I want others to be struggling but because I shift into a greater reality. I realize that what’s happening isn’t just about me and that I’m not alone. That helps me to get through. It helps me to trust the process, even if I don’t understand it, and to relax in the midst of it. It also gives me a sense of connection to the larger community of others sharing this pattern, which supports me tremendously.

 

My challenges recently have been showing up physically. I’ve had very difficult episodes of extended migraine headaches and back pain. For others, the challenges might be showing up in other ways, such as other forms of sickness, emotional struggles, mental difficulties, problems in relationships, difficult life circumstances, etc. I’ve also been struggling with not being able to conform to time structures and really needing to be on my own timing and flow.

 

If you’ve been experiencing something like this pattern, in whatever form, my heart and compassion go out to you. My guess is that it’s probably happening with greater intensity and lasting longer than you’re used to, or comfortable with, or enjoy.

 

That’s certainly what I was experiencing.

 

For me, this all came to a “boiling point” the Friday before Memorial Day weekend. That’s when I had a meltdown, kind of like my own personal Fukushima. I was crying and feeling great despair about my life. And then a friend called. I told my friend what was going on for me. She said she wished I was with her so she could support me. That sounded incredibly wonderful and I expressed how much I would like that.

 

At that moment a vision came to me of my friend coming and picking me up and taking me to her home in Ashland, Oregon. I felt how I would really love that. But I felt afraid to ask her to do that because it felt like “too much.” I noticed my fear and hesitated. Then I decided to ask for what I really wanted. And that’s what I did. To my amazement, she immediately responded with, “I can do that!” And I instantly knew that was exactly what I needed.

 

Three days later I was driving with my friend to Ashland, Oregon, including stopping to take in the majesty of Mt. Shasta on the way. Immediately upon arriving at my friend’s home I started to get better. Dramatically better! Hugely better! In fact, within a few days I actually felt good. I’d forgotten what “good” feels like. It’s really good!

 

I’m seeing the same thing in the bigger picture. I think many people are being asked by their soul to make changes in their lives that don’t seem easy. So they’re resisting making the changes. I know I was. I didn’t want to leave the Bay Area of San Francisco. There were many people I was close to there who I didn’t want to move away from, including my daughter and son-in-law. There were gatherings that I loved. I loved the land, the water, the climate. It felt like home to me.

 

But I was also ignoring the things that weren’t working for me, like the huge stress of the traffic and all the driving. Or the continual stress of the cost of living there. Or the frustration that I wasn’t finding a place to settle and start the spiritual community I so long to create.

 

Those were the signs that what I was doing wasn’t aligned to my soul path. I was doing my best to ignore those signs. So Spirit found a different way to get my attention, through my health.

 

I suspect many people are going through a similar scenario. I’ve had quite a few people tell me about wanting to make a change in their life yet feeling scared to take the leap. I think Spirit is helping them to do something different by making it not work anymore to continue with their previous “life”—and if necessary, even bringing in obstacles to their previous way of doing things. It’s Spirit’s way of redirecting us to what our soul really wants.

 

Is this happening for you? Are you feeling called to a change in your life that you’ve been resisting? Are you ready to take your next step of aligning with your soul in a greater way? It might be a baby step or a major leap. Only you will know what’s right for you.

 

How do you know what’s right for you? Look for the signs in your life of your soul speaking to you. Then trust those signs.

 

Spirit really does communicate with us all the time. It happens most often through the events of our lives. We just need eyes to see and ears to hear Spirit’s messages. If we don’t see or hear and then respond, Spirit turns up the volume and the signs become stronger. What may look like our life falling apart may actually be Spirit calling us to something new.

 

I hope you don’t need as strong a message as I did in order to listen and respond. I invoke that you follow your soul path and that your path is filled with ease and grace. So may it be!

 

In case you’re wondering what this has to do with ascension, I think it has everything to do with it. I think the ante is being upped and we’re being called to assume our soul path to a much greater degree. There’s less room for divergence and detours.

 

It’s like we’re in a slow-building volcano. But don’t be fooled by the speed (which really is incredibly fast in terms of the way evolution usually occurs). I have no doubt that we’re being gently, or sometimes not-so-gently, pushed to our next level of spiritual growth and unfoldment. And we’re having all kinds of growing pains along the way.

 

I believe huge forces are at play in our world. Just look at what’s happening politically, especially in the U.S. But there’s something even bigger that’s not being broadcast by the media. It’s a grassroots groundswell of a huge shift in spiritual evolution that’s underway. And we all showed up to be part of it.

 

It may not feel like what you were expecting when you “volunteered.” But now you’re here. And more than anything else, your most important work is your personal spiritual growth.

 

It may not feel like much at an individual level. But at the group level, what’s occurring is stupendous. I really believe this and see it everywhere. It gives me such hope and joy. I’m very confident that a growing group of awakening and awakened beings are tipping the scales on planet Earth toward a much more wonderful future.

 

I’m looking forward to it! And I hope you’ll be there, too.

YESHUA and MARY MAGDALENE: Inhabiting Feminine Power

Received by Mercedes Kirkel

 

Question: Right now I am experiencing a familiar fear in my belly of fully inhabiting my Feminine self and Feminine power. I know this must have a historical aspect. Will you please speak to how to be fully in my Feminine radiance, love, and power?

 

Mary Magdalene: Thank you so much for this question. This is a very pertinent question.

 

You are remembering a form of wounding, a form of pain that you have experienced, be it in this lifetime or another. Most of you have experienced this kind of pain multitudes of times, in every lifetime.

 

In general, those of you who are incarnated in the Feminine, as a woman, have experienced this far more times and are often more sensitive to it, more aware of it, than those who are manifesting in the male gender, or in male bodies. But it is true of both genders. It is true of everyone. You have all experienced wounding relative to the Feminine.

 

Out of that wounding, there is pain and fear of re-opening again. Your wounding may not have been in the form of sexual abuse. There are infinite number of other ways it could have happened. You might have been told that you couldn’t do certain things because of being a woman. You might have been told you shouldn’t manifest certain things because they are lesser, and they were Feminine things such as being emotional or who knows what else. Or maybe you were withheld access to the Feminine, in so many ways. Denial is a form of very clear communication that something is not acceptable. When something is denied, then it’s suppressed. If nothing else, everyone has received denial and suppression of the Feminine through the consciousness that has been programmed in at the third dimension.

 

You are one who is sensitive to this. As all of you become more and more sensitive, very likely more and more of you will be aware of this challenge in opening to the Feminine. You will become aware that there is fear of being wounded and hurt again. The Feminine part of you, in general, is your more vulnerable part. This is not to say that men can’t be vulnerable. It is saying that men and women, when they are vulnerable in this feeling way, are coming from their inner Feminine aspect.

 

This is where you can do the process that I have taught. I will talk about this process briefly in this example. You let yourself go into this place of wounding. For you, you are saying it is in the pit of your stomach. Find where it is in your body and relax that place in your body. Allow yourself, as much as you can, to go into that place in a physical way, and also in an emotional way. Let yourself merge with the feeling that is manifesting there, which in this case is fear.

 

This is very different from your instinctive tendency when you feel fear. The instinctive tendency is the fight or flight mechanism. It’s “I am in danger, I might be killed!” Out of that, the instinctive response is to go into action, to jump out of the fear and protect yourself in some way or other. But we are not doing the instinctive response here. We are doing a conscious spiritual response. It may feel like you’re going against your natural instincts, and to some degree you are. You are going into a spiritual response.

 

So you open yourself in your belly, in your fear, and you let yourself merge with the fear. From that place of opening and merging with the fear, there is a simple, more direct process.

 

The more direct process is to open to God from the place of uniting with the fear, and to let God guide you. You may get a message. You may get a vision. You may get sensation that guides you and tells you what to do. More than anything else, you have reconnected with God. Because what you are suffering is not the fear. You are suffering your disconnection from God. So that is one option, this simple process.

 

There is a process that is slightly more complex. But even though it is more complex, for many of you it is easier. So we also offer this. The second option begins the same way. You let yourself go into the bodily feeling and the emotional feeling of the fear. From that place you use your consciousness to inquire as to what the source of the fear is—knowing that the source of the fear is not the outer experience. The source of the fear is your own disconnection from God, in one or more particular forms that God manifests within you, which I have called your inner divine qualities.

 

In this circumstance of connecting with your Feminine, I am guessing the source of your fear is your inner divine qualities of safety and well-being. The inner divine qualities are always beautiful because they’re an aspect of your union with God. These are attributes of being fully in union with God. It is in God where you find your true safety and well-being.

 

Going back to our example, you open to the fear and let yourself merge with it. From that place, you inquire what is the source in your inner divine qualities and you let yourself discover these. This is the process that Mercedes teaches in her course. [NOTE: Mary Magdalene is referring to THE MAGDALENE HEART PATH Online Course.] This skill is very valuable to develop. I’m not going fully into it now because of time constraints. But if you were to learn this through the course or through another means, it would become clear how you connect with these inner divine qualities. I am simply going to say at this point that you can.

 

Let us say that the inner divine qualities for this situation are safety and well-being. Then you rest in your knowingness of safety and well-being. For some this may be very direct. Simply by connecting with the inner divine qualities, there is a sense of dropping in, where you know what it’s like to experience safety and well-being. For some, you may need a little help. It might help to remember a time when you felt safe, when you experienced well-being. Or it may help to have an image of what safety or well-being looks like. Use whatever works for you. Connect with the place in yourself where you already know the fulfilled state of safety and well-being.

 

When you’ve connected with that, rest in that. Then bring back the original situation—in this case, the original situation of opening to your Divine Feminine. You will notice that your feelings have changed. If you have connected with the actual inner divine qualities that you previously disconnected from, you will now be in a state of peace. You will experience peace.

 

You may also experience a kind of energized activation, where suddenly you have ideas about how you can further support your well-being and your safety as you connect to your inner Feminine. Those ideas, and that feeling of being activated and energized, are your guidance that you are ready to move forward in a different way.

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.
