Embracing the Madgalene...
I went to a Christian (Babtist) school from K-4 through the 9th grade. We had Bible class every day and Chapel on Fridays. I memorized a lot of Bible verses and sang a lot of songs about Jesus, but Christ-consciousness didn't really begin to resonate with me until the 9th grade, when for one year we studied every day what is was to be "Christ-like."
Patient, kind, compassionate, humble, gentle, forgiving, generous, accepting. Loving, Heart-centered, transcending fear. A "Be-ing" in Love.
I was lost for a long time after that, and in 2012, when I began to awaken, I traveled to India. I was in Kolkata and pilgrimaged to Yogananda's ashram near Dakshineswar. I was led to a tiny temple and inside, surrounded by candle light, a photo of Jesus Christ dropped me to my knees. I wept. I remembered. I began the journey back to Love.
This was also when I began to awaken to the Divine Feminine. I remembered the Cosmic Mother, Mother Mary, and later, Mary Magdalene. Mary Magdalene was the closest female apostle to Jesus. She had 7 "demons" cast out of her, which I equate to balancing the 7 chakras and being cleansed of the 7 "sins" or imbalances corresponding to each chakra. She is thought by some to possibly be John, sitting to the right of Jesus at the Last Supper.
She is also believed by many to be the consort of Jesus. She, and Mother Mary, witnessed his crucifixion and prepared his body for the tomb, anointing him with oils. She was always by his side. He appeared to Her first in his "Ka" body, or spirit form, before he ascended to the Father.
As a yogini, so fully aligned with the Divine Feminine and with Mother Mary and Mary Magdalene, I felt their pain the last three days, and today, their joy at the Resurrection. In addition to Christ, my first guru, I also honor them and I pray that soon All will begin to awaken to this feminine energy as balance is restored.
I have been with Mary Magdalene and Christ, also known as Yeshua, in many multi-dimensional journeys. Mary Madgalene has become a guiding force in my life. She has been waiting for a long time, to transmit her message of love and return to wholeness... and that time is coming.. for many of us... it's here!
The Vatican now recognizes the Magdalene as the "Apostle to the Apostles." Her reputation as a "prostitute" is no longer accepted and as women are freed from oppression of the patriarchy, she is now being recognized as a highly evolved independent woman who supported Jesus in many ways.
Maybe one day soon, Her-story will be revealed. I'm pretty sure Jesus would like that.
