July 22 is now recognized as Mary Magdalene feast day. In 2016, Mary of Magdalene was formally identified by the Vatican as an Apostle of the Apostles- their equal!! and the first messenger of the resurrection of Jesus.
In 591, Pope Gregory claimed that Mary of Magdala was a prostitute- a story and misconception that is carried to today. According to Gospel, Mary of Magdala was with Virgin Mary ( Jesus' mother) at both Jesus' death and burial. She is identified as the first witness to the resurrection of Jesus.
One of the angel teachers from the UK, Kyle Gray, depicts her as teacher
awakens. He guides us that we have something important to share, follow our inner call and not to let anything or anyone stop you.
He teaches that Mary of Magdala was a great visionary and teacher with clairvoyant abilities. She was able to see angels and tap into Jesus' energy at a soul level. She is calling upon many of us to follow her to teach the joy of spirit. She helps light workers step up and speak their truth. She is a great spirit and is helping those of us who are teachers and leaders to trust the power of our souls to step forward and share what we have learned.
Yesterday I was blessed to have been invited to celebrate this amazing woman by attending a labyrinth walk. I was in deep contemplation of her nurturing Jesus during his last hours on earth. What was her role? Was she more to Jesus than history allows us the knowledge of? Are the
stories of her being Jesus' wife true? And if so, why has Christianity and Catholicism kept this from us? As a Goddess practitioner, I now recognize that the old paradigm of men having power of women, is shifting. The Divine Feminine is calling us to RISE. This amazing energy, has been calling out to me for a couple of years now.
As I sat in meditation, and contemplation, it only made sense to me that I am being called to get to know her. I love Jesus. Jesus loved her. She was with Mother Mary before, during and after the crucifixtion. She was powerful and the men were intimidated by her. If she had been a man, her knowledge, her wisdom and her insight would have been revered.. Instead, she was kept small. Until now! Women all over the globe are being called to know her, to become more like her. We are being signalled to learn from her and to recognize she has much to teach us.
She was known as a bearer of Myrrh. Apparently that meant she had anointing power and had anointed Jesus' feet and cleaned him when he was brought down from the cross. If you remember, when Jesus was born, the three wise men brought him gifts of gold, frankincense,and myrrh. Myrrh is related to frankincense and it is one of the most widely used essential oils in the world. She was a priestess! I love that!
She was taught by Jesus and I want to learn more about her!! Part of celebrating her is to give thanks to all the female teachers of the world and to all the Divine feminine wisdom woven generation after generation into the beautiful grand tapestry of life.
I find it so interesting that thirteen women attended the labyrinth walk in memory of Mary Magdalene. Thirteen is the number of the Goddess. It is also the day Mother Mary showed herself. (May 13 we remember)
As I stood in line for my turn to begin my labyrinth walk, I looked up at the sky and an angel cloud greeted me. Of course they would be there to oversee me and guide me. I felt their love and support so strongly.
Then as I began to walk, I intended to be in the moment and not allow my mind to wander. I noticed the ants, which to me represented people on earth. We are like ants, plentiful. Then there was a bee, which to me, symbolized you must watch out not to get stung. Then a number of beautiful dragonflies flew by. They remind me of my loved ones in spirit. I smiled to myself. The uneven stones symbolized that life isn't always smooth, but to keep moving forward on the path. As I rounded one area, there were two trees standing strong. In that moment, my mom and dad came to my mind. They have been like trees in my life. They have been symbols of strength and growth and have given me my roots. The forest close by, was all the people I have had the blessing of meeting along the journey of life. The Sun beamed down on my face as I walked further on the path. The light to me represented God, love and light and reminded me to keep my face to the sun. The wind blew. I had bare feet and grounded myself to Mother Earth. At a couple of areas, stones got stuck in my feet. This to me, deeply represented the times I have walked through hard times. I had to work to get them out. Eventually they came out and the path became smooth once again. Isn't that a beautiful analogy of the times we get to walk through hard lessons and we get to grow?
There were thirteen women including me. This represented being connected to all, and never being alone. Another big huge huge sign for me was that there was an angel in the garden put there in remembrance of a Rafael family member. Sundays I work with Archangel Raphael. This was deeply meaningful to me. I took time to thank him for his part in my healing.
As there were so many others in the labyrinth too, this symbolized that I could go at my own pace behind the lady in front of me, or I could pass her. Isn't this the same in life?
Arianna had asked us to bring something to place on the alter we created there, and I brought my new pink lemurian stone so that it could be charged with the elements and Mary of Magdala's energy. I had it in my right hand. In my left I had a kleenex. About half way through the walk, I decided to put them in my bra. This to me meant that you could let go and put things down. That you don't have to carry things if they get heavy.
I smiled as I walked. I held myself open to receiving help. At one point I put my hands together in prayer and thanksgiving. While I walked I made sure to notice all the signs. I felt blessed to have had all the teachers I have had to date. I feel blessed to have a main teacher. I feel blessed to believe in the Divine. I felt connected to everything. I noticed every little and big sign that God, my angels, guides and loved ones in spirit sent. I thanked God for my journey. I actually thanked him for every lesson. I asked for Grace and Ease and lessons gently. When Paulo sr. came to pick me up I felt like I was floating on air. I can't explain it. It was a day filled with magic, miracles, wonder and every Divine Being that I love!!! Won't you get to know them too?
