Reflections on Relationships – Jesus & Mary Magdalene’s & Our Own

The relationship between Jesus and Mary Magdalene was beautiful from the start. But of course it would be. They came from the same facet of Light, and they knew it.

I always thought that if you follow your heart, you’ll be happy. And I still believe it.

I also know relationships have their challenges too, including our relationships with ourselves, others, work, our environment and so on. And that I don’t tend to feel happy about dealing with these challenges. But because my intention is to resolve them, there is growth, richness, and eventual happiness with the outcome.

The thing is, the outcome is always “out-coming,” i.e., there are no endings, simply continuing opportunities for experience.

In the past couple of weeks, I have heard at least 5 happy relationship stories –  from a young woman whose prior break-up has blossomed into a full-blown and very positive romance; a senior in her first truly honoring, mutually beneficial love relationship; another young woman whose online overseas friendship is steadily building into something more; a joyous, recently engaged couple; and a young couple living together who are honoring and supporting one another through a health challenge.

I take all this as a very good sign.

Last night, Joy Regina Melchezidek and I facilitated Aphrodite Answers – Your Soul’s Beauty Revealed, assisting women to bask in that most primary of relationships – the one with oneself, as well as with the sensory, sensual world. The richness, wisdom and deep soul connections shared were a privilege and honor to be part of.

And I look forward to discovering how this powerful experience is affecting all of our many forms of relationships in the days to come.

Message of the Week: Jesus & Mary Magdalene’s Early Times Together

When Jesus was three years old and my Mary almost five, they met and played together. It was a wondrous delight to see them together and witness their joy and playfulness.

We regretted they could not be together more often, but we understood the reasons for all this, both internally and socially.

Whenever they were together, all of Life shone more brightly around. They radiated their souls’ energy so profoundly that the air around them was quite charged, and everything seemed more alive and youthful.

Those were special times. We did our best, the other Mary and I, to cloak their privacy from others, that they might have this freedom, this joy of being together, for its own right and to help sustain them in the future. It might have helped them trust their togetherness too, when illusions of separation were presented to them.

But all that was in the future. In this time, their elation in playing together fed our own souls mightily. Whenever I remember those times, I feel that youthful vibrancy and aliveness, that crashing of souls together in glorious frequencies, the magnificence of their purest love.

Thoughts on the Third Mary’s Early Angelic Experience

The excerpt I posted yesterday on an angelic vision Mary Magdalene’s mother had as a young child is one of my favorites of the stories she shared with me. I feel such sweetness emanating from it! And I can see how empowering it would be to receive such reassurance at this early age.

Our perceptions of the world can be so much more open when we’re children, and can have such influence on the rest of our lives. Although I didn’t have the kind of experience the Third Mary did at this age, I can still recall times that someone older and wiser honored me with their sincere attention and appreciation when they didn’t have to pay me any mind at all.

I felt more clear, confident, present when this occurred. I’d feel it bring out the best in me. And looking back, I would say we were connecting soul to soul, however briefly, and I cherished these times.

Are there moments in your own childhood that stand out as making you feel honored, appreciated, reassured? A positive influence or special vision that you hold dear?

Message of the Week: Angelic Vision from the Third Mary’s Youth

When I was a small child, I gazed up at the Heavens, especially at night, whenever I had the opportunity. I always felt that the more I looked upward, the more I would feel Heaven all around me, and so I did.

One day, while looking upward, a star fell from the sky. You would call this a shooting star. I was impressed, but also afraid that my own desire for Heaven and Earth had pulled this piece right out of the sky.

I wondered whether I should continue expressing this yearning or whether perhaps, somehow, it was a negative that could cause ruin. (I was the only one who had seen this occur at the time and being so young, I had not received teachings about such.)

And so I prayed for guidance.

The following night, I dreamt a small child like myself yet vibrating with Light, an angel of my own stature and similar appearance, stood before me.

She smiled at me and I felt joyful recognition, and total trust and peace.

She told me I would live to know many wonders and that I was helping to bring Heaven on Earth, not harming anything in this manner, and that many, many moons from now I would know it. I would experience the Heaven on Earth community and in the meantime I would learn many things, all necessary to create the Peaceable Kingdom and all important for Living Truth in the Now.

I understood I would require each moment of this long time to accomplish this, and everything I undertook would ultimately assist in this accomplishment.

I nodded to signify my understanding.

She spoke to me of her love for me and that she would be there to assist and comfort me, though I might not see her again in this manner for a very long time.

I knew this was true because the love, peace and comfort emanating from her and surrounding me was so intense, so real, beyond my human experience of such before. And I felt the knowing grow inside me that the essence of all I yearned for would come to pass.

I became quite peaceful after this, and patient through most of the hardships that came into my life thereafter. It was the start of my conscious initiation into the Brotherhood of Light on Earth and I took to it well.

Expansiveness & Overwhelm

The Message of the Week from The Third Mary discusses overwhelm, and not staying “small.”

How do you support your own expansiveness?

How do you deal with overwhelm?

For me, the expansiveness is sometimes by fits and starts. I may take a few steps forward, then need to let things sit a bit. But basically, when I allow myself to just truly be, the expansion arises naturally.

Overwhelm comes when I have too much expectation, lack of balance, lack of order, see myself as smaller than my tasks/choices/ situation, etc. And it eases as I bring my attention back to the basics, focusing on one thing at a time, allowing myself to call on the assistance I require, break down tasks or goals that seem huge into appropriate next steps.

I think when we realize how much assistance is available to us, we can relax into being our true selves and trusting our positive possibilities.

Today I had the joy of being interviewed on “Joy of Union,” with Joy Regina Melchezidek and T.J. Ryan, which will be posted next week on http://www.joyofunion.podbean.com and http://www.outthere.podbean.com, and tonight at 10 pm Eastern I’ll be part of a live broadcast on “Voices of the Sacred Feminine” with Karen Tate. (You can call in at 718-766-4662, or listen @ www.blogtalkradio.com/voicesofthesacredfeminine.)

And I can just enjoy them, go with the flow, because they’re about the material in my books, Goddess Heart Rising and The Third Mary, and the energies that engendered them, energies that support me in the process of being who I am and encouraging others to do the same.

And I am so grateful for discovering my connection with these aspects of who we all are in our larger selves, and for these opportunities to share them with more and more people.

So I am napping between shows, eating good food, enjoying my husband and canine companion, and following the flow.

Message of the Week from the Third Mary

Things will not continue “small” and “same.” Ask to adjust frequencies when you’re alerted to potential overwhelm. Call upon me, and call upon all those who love and support your nature, which are many.

Ask them what you can do to better support them as well, when you recognize their own potential overwhelm.

And adjust your expectations accordingly. You may be surprised by some of the suggestions and requests, but they will all fit together accordingly.
