Who was Mary Magdalene?

I love this artist's image of a powerful feminine goddess woman stepping into our consciousness, fully intact.

Through the efforts of Stuart Wilson & Joanna Prentis and their work with past life regression using hypnosis, many of the mysteries surrounding Mary Magdalene and the Hidden Story of the Women Disciples emerged and can be read in its entirety under the title, "Power of the Magdalene".   Mary Magdalene was spiritually equal to Jesus (Yeshua) though there were many who misunderstood her position and stature within the inner circle of disciples. Her rigorous training  in the Egyptian temples of Isis prepared her as one who would anchor in the Cosmic Mother principles of Unity and Truth. A cousin of Yeshua (Jesus), through Joseph of Arimathea (brother of Mother Mary) and Mary of Magdala, Mary Magdalene was born in 4BC. Her spiritual understanding nearly equaled that of MaryAnna (Mother Mary) who also was a High Priestess in the Temples of Isis.

 In "Pistis Sophia The Gnostic Tradition of Mary Magdalene, Jesus and his Disciples" translated by G.R.S. Mead, Jesus himself recognizes Mary Magdalene for her high understandings of his teachings and recognizes her stature and equality with the other disciples.  In Chapter 25 of the First Book of Pistis Sophia, Jesus (Yeshua) says, "Well said, Mary; you question finely with your excellent question and you throw light on all things with surety and precision."  In Chapter 87, he refers to Mary Magdalene by saying, "Well said, spiritual and pure Mary." And in Chapter 17 of the First Book says, "Mary, blessed one, whom I will teach and perfect in all mysteries, speak openly, you whose heart is raised to the kingdom of heaven more than all thy bretheren."

Another extraordinary source of information on the Christ drama comes from the channeled work of Claire Heartsong, "Anna, Grandmother of Jesus" and "Anna, The Voice of the Magdalenes" by Claire Heartsong and Catherine Ann Clement, both available through Amazon.com or www.lightrivermedia.com.

My own verbal transmission of channeled information dated Tuesday, February 26, 2013 follows:

Regarding Mary Magdalene who was the balancing aspect for the Christ drama, represented the Divine Mother aspects, the Feminine Energies of creation.  She was related by bloodline but was also a spiritual adept whose incarnation was pre-ordained as an integral piece of the Angelic Hierarchy's plan for planetary awakening.  Consciousness during that period was steeped in fear and dogmatic application of Jewish Law and interpretations.

While Yeshua's place in the Christ drama was one of sharp contrast to prevalent thought and practice, Mary Magdalene's was one of anchoring and steady support.  Blessed with her own strong will and determination, she was able to rise above prevalent ideas of women's place in society as unequal and merely in servitude to the masculine. While she did support the Cosmic process for planetary awakening, she did so as a strong leader in her own right, a leader in the different circles of esoteric teachings and applications. This helped create a foundation for other women and initiates within the Essene community, especially, to initiate and expand the teachings of Truth and Unity as the Way. Her own spiritual understandings and practices of High Love enabled her to  use these as a tool for teaching and as a tool for support and strengthening of Yeshua's energy fields which were crucial for his own resurrection, and indeed, ascension.

Mary Magdalene was a High Initiate within the inner circle of disciples.  Yeshua surrounded himself with women and men for he understood the importance and relevancy of balance within the structure of the Cosmos and how those same energies unified within the physical plane. Masculine and Feminine have equal validity and strength in serving the Whole, in serving the One. Mary Magdalene and Yeshua came together to unify, to teach Unity and Wholeness through the Love Principle of non-judgement and forgiveness. Their deep love and Soul recognition was ignited in the moment of their first meeting. And while trained independently of each other, each was prepared and initiated to enact and hold space for the resurrection, the demonstration of the resurrection which brought awareness to the people that the body was merely a communication device for Spirit and not the evidence for misinterpretation of Divinity.

However, the Romans and indeed many practicing Jewish leaders, as well as the climate of the time,  determined to compromise and eradicate the teachings of The Way, The Way of Truth. Mary Magdalene was a target of that movement so was discounted and blasphemied in ways that perpetuated domination of women and the silencing of the Cosmic Mother aspect. Stories were circulated to discredit Mary Magdalene, and even Mother Mary was put aside as a docile and obedient presence, one to emulate quietly.

The legacy of Mary Magdalene and the other female disciples is now being brought back into human consciousness as many awaken to the drum beat, the call of Unity Consciousness, Truth and Wholeness as their rightful inheritance and the Truth of our Divine Nature.

We send you forth in the Highest vibrations of Light and Love, in service to the One, The All That Is.
In Love and Light, we guide you in Truth.

And So It Is.

What is Channeling?

image by Eric Fishback on Pinterest

Channeling is like a bridge between two worlds. It's a method of linking dimensions. Consciousness is Infinite so the energy of ourselves, our Spiritual Selves, continues expressing itself even when we release the body through the dying process. Channeling can be likened to tuning in to a specific program on the radio where we "Tune In" or "Dial In" to a specific radio frequency. There are several different levels of channeling from Trance Channeling, where the receiver of the information that is coming from higher realms of expression is unaware of what is being transmitted, to a level where the receiver or channeler is aware of the information coming through but knows it is beyond their own conscious mind. 

As we evolve in wisdom through the course of our lives, our Souls evolve in like manner and every lifetime is an opportunity for the evolution of the Soul. There are Wise Ones that have gone before us who exist in spiritual realms who can be accessed through meditation and conscious connection.  The channeling process allows us to access that Higher wisdom and understanding that is unavailable through simply experiencing our lives via the status quo and what has been handed down from generation to generation. The air or oxygen that we breathe is an example of something we cannot see but there is no denying that it exists.  Air is merely vibrating at a rate of speed that is undetectable to the naked eye and Albert Einstein's scientific genius helped us understand that everything is energy vibrating at different rates or frequencies. Other dimensions do indeed exist even though we cannot see them.

Edgar Cayce (1877-1945), was known as the sleeping prophet and was one of the most prolific channelers of modern times at over 14,500 readings. He would simply lay down and go to "sleep" while he was asked questions that initially focused on physical ailments and their treatments despite Cayce only having a ninth grade education. Later, his readings expanded to include information about past lives, the history of earth and it's ancient civilizations as well as prophesies for the future. Jane Roberts who channeled a wise and advanced being named Seth, sat upright while her husband took dictation of the information coming through but Jane was mostly in a light trance state, as she described it. Her works include, "Seth Speaks, The Eternal Validity of the Soul" and it "is still considered one of the most dynamic and brilliant maps of inner reality and human potential available today." 

Seth explains in Seth Speaks, "Each individual has access to intuitional knowledge and can gain glimpses of inner reality.  The universe speaks to each of us in this regard...Consciousness creates form.  It is not the other way around.  All personalities are not physical.  It is only because you are so busily concerned with daily matters that you do not realize that there is a portion of you who knows that its own powers are far superior to those shown by the ordinary self."

And Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer, at www.orindaben.com,  teach that channeling is a skill that can be learned and they, themselves, channel wise Light Beings, Orin and DaBen, who teach how to connect with your Guides, how to receive clear guidance, how to transcend the ego, how to activate the Light Body and many other classes on spiritual awakening.  Opening to Channel, How to Connect With Your Guideis just one of many books written by Sanaya that can help seekers accelerate their spiritual growth.  A Course in Miracles channeled by Dr. Helen Shucman, herself an agnostic, was a 7 year project channeling Jesus as the "voice" that spoke to her and began with the request, "This is a course in miracles, please take notes". 

I mention some of these examples as validation and explanation for my own experiences of opening to channel. While a student in esthetic school, I sought out the advice of an intuitive (or channel) who told me that my study of esthetics would lead me to my higher purpose of healing. I completed school and opened a home based skincare business in 2007 and shortly thereafter, I began to have curious experiences and sensations that directed me to move my own hands, arms and body to specific points and places after I had completed a traditional facial on my client.  In the beginning, it was all very robotic and clumsy but now has evolved to become quite elaborate, precise and tangible. 

At about the same time that I opened to channel Energetic Healing and Attunements, I began to experiment with automatic or channeled writing and occasionally verbal channeling as well.  And while I feel like an amateur in this regard, I have been greatly encouraged by my own Guides to begin a more public sharing of some of the ideas and information coming through these channeled writings. 

My devotion to understanding our Spiritual Nature, understanding Truth in it's most accurate, non-dogmatic and purest of ways has lead me on a path to purify my own consciousness through psychotherapy, shamanism, prayer, meditation, journaling, forgiveness as taught by A Course in Miracles and ongoing study of many of the spiritual traditions leading humanity to the reality of our Divine Nature. 

Just as there are people on the planet who live their lives in a low expression and a high expression of their Divine selves, those same beings or entities move into the spiritual realms according to their level of soul's evolution and understanding. So when we open to channel, we must use discernment in whether or not the information being presented to us generates a sense of fear or one of encouragement, love, and hope. The Beings who work with me continually educate and communicate within the framework of Unity Consciousness, Christ Consciousness, Buddha Mind and the Truth that ALL IS ONE.

Look for future channeled postings from these extraordinary spiritual teachers of Light, Love and Truth.

How Do We Discern Truth from Falsehood?

image from Pinterest, Healing Soul Tree

Truth is the nature of our Divine Reality. How do we accept or even understand our True nature? What is our life purpose and why are we here? How do we begin to awaken to the those inspired aspects of who we are when the mundane demands of our day to day life seem to consume every minute of our day? Every moment of our day is actually Divine Intelligence in motion and that Divinity allows all things through the practice of free will expression. Creation is the birth of galaxies, stars, planets, trees, every atom and molecule of water, air, fire and earth. And as humans, we are That.  We are not separate from each other or any part of the world around us. The Divine Creator Intelligence animates us, breathes us, expresses through us, teaches us and sustains us through our every action and thought that we experience as human Beings on this extraordinary planet called Earth.

Now, what we would propose, is the nature of personal reality as the access point for understanding your own soul consciousness. This is indeed the primary focal point with which to consider how your orientation to the world brings you the information to shift and change into higher realms of expression and consciousness. We offer unto you the Truth of Unity Consciousness.  All are One.

There is a teaching among you written by a Master, David Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., who realized a method for discerning teachings and teachers of Truth and even a method for calibrating consciousness as expressed by different individuals,  specific concepts, spiritual texts and practices.  The calibration method used was that of muscle testing or kinesiology to a high degree of accuracy of nearly 99 percent; the body being understood as a scale, an interface between the spiritual and physical aspects of who we are.

A scale accurately measures the weight of an object thus the body acts as an indicator in measuring concepts, physical imbalance and its root cause, and even spiritual teachings. Dr. Hawkins realized that all in this world calibrates on a scale of 1 to 1000.  The higher the calibration, the more closely it aligns with Truth as the nature of our Reality. At the most simple level, kinesiological testing can be used as an indicator for "yes" or "no". If an individual holds an orange at the navel of the body, the muscle will test strong, indicating a "yes" answer. If an individual holds a packet of artificial sweetener, universally, the body goes weak, indicating a "no" answer.  Fresh fruit is healthy for the body, artificial sweetener weakens the body. Thousands of tests were performed ultimately creating a Map of Consciousness Scale.

Through his research, Dr. Hawkins determined that anything above the level of 200, that of integrity, orients toward Truth and anything below 200 orients toward Falsehood. Below 200 are life expressions that present as Pride, Anger, Fear, Grief, Apathy, Guilt and Shame. Above 200, life expresses itself through Courage, Willingness, Acceptance, Reason, Love, Joy, Peace and ultimately higher and higher levels of Enlightenment. The book, "Power vs. Force" is Dr. Hawkins groundbreaking work on this subject and his complete works available through www.veritaspub.com, assist individuals in transcending the ego to align with their True Self, the Higher Self, The All That Is.

What we see and experience through the lens of our own perception, reflects back to us the condition of our own consciousness.  When the world is seen through the dirty lens of fear or anger, that is our own indicator that there is an aspect of ourselves that we are being invited to transform and change.  When we see the good in people, we see our own goodness. When we glimpse potentiality for greatness in another, we know that exists within our own selves, and when we wish to know if we are on the right path, know that every path is a path to Source. Imagine the spokes of a wheel. Every spoke is connected to the center and every spoke is a path. We are each on a different point on the wheel but we are all headed to the same destination. Toward the One.
