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.

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:

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:

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.
