It is so funny that much as we ask for spiritual guidance, how so often we can actually get in the way of it. Many years ago, driven by inspiration, I traveled to Israel and Egypt -- it was one of the most powerful experiences of my life, and certainly one that stays with me today. It was also tumultuous and emotional because I felt very torn and uncertain about my guidance. I had heard a very distinctive voice .. the voice of Mary Magdalene but I felt too unworthy and just too fearful to really acknowledge this... yet I was strong enough to go across the world on this trip.. I was very confused because it was uncovering so much emotional wounding, clearly from many past lifetimes.
I wandered around Jerusalem and went to all the "sacred" places, but could not find the guidance I was seeking. I became so frustrated that I actually called out to Jesus and Mary, where are you? I suddenly felt myself guided up beyond the city to the quiet orchards of Gethsemane to walk in the ancient olive trees. I felt so lost and yet everything felt so familiar. I found the quiet and gentle place I had been looking for!
Over the next few weeks I was guided by Mary and taken to various locations in and around Jerusalem and also in Gallilee.... The book, Amma Na Tha (which means the Mother Returns in Aramaic) literally awoke within.
Later, after teaching and sharing the first book, I wrote The Goddess Codes to help everyone understand how the Goddess literally awakens within as well as to share my personal "Goddess" story. Somewhere in between I made a teaching DVD called The Hidden Goddess and this has all led to the latest StarSeed books, which contain her deepest wisdom... The final book in the StarSeed series contains information on the Star-Seed origins of Mary and Jesus along with information on the gifts that all StarSeeds for all the many worlds offer us here on Earth.. it is one of her most powerful gifts for us all, but for StarSeed Beings in particular.
Of course I see so clearly now that Mary has guided me from the very beginning. She is the face, in human form of the "feminine" Christ, which simply means she aligns with the Holy Mother or nurturer within!
Of course, it is easy for me to write about "Mary" as if she were someone or something outside of me.. but of course she is within me, and I believe within all people -- but we must awaken her within and this can only occur when we truly embrace the inner Goddess....Mary is the Sacred Feminine gifted to us by a higher power and it is that inner feminine that lovingly guides us back to the love we truly are!
Her teachings always revolve around love and the need to let go of the logical thinking mind in favour of the heart. Of course we should never freeze the mind but rather keep returning our mind to the heart to ensure balance and love is in the mix! So much is written about how to find our way in this world, but ultimately it is only through loving ourselves and thus everything we encounter in the world and we can know this. Yet we cannot do that until we have found our own inner peace... because we cannot share what we do not have!
Mary reminds us that deep, down within your heart and within your soul is the answer to every question you have ever had and will ever have. Deep within you have a secret gift that will bring you all the peace you seek. But you can never access it until you honour and acknowledge your inner divinity. This particular aspect of divinity is the feminine element, or Goddess within. This applies to both males and females. This is why the Bible speaks of becoming a bride and marrying the Holy Spirit or the bridegroom. Only when your divine nature speaks within can you ever enter the halls of wisdom that bring that eternal peace. I know you know this, but sometimes we all need to have it spelled out for us once again.
In ancient times, and certainly in the time of Jesus, this divine awakening was offered via the priestesses in the temple. This is what Mary Magdalene did for Jesus in that famous Bible story of annointing. You will recall, especially if you have read my book: Amma Na Tha that she was compelled to anoint him, in front of others with spikenard oil. She felt utterly unworthy which is why she was weeping and therefore she used her tears to wash his feet. Jesus could not have completed his mission without this amazing and awakening ritual of anointment by the priestess of the temple.
While I was in Jerusalem I was given some beautiful bottles of traditional spikenard oil with instructions from Mary to begin to annoint one another. Spikenard essential oil ihas now become easily available; this oil is originally from India and the Himalayans. I am sure some of you who live in mountainous areas can grow the little crocus that makes the oil and Mary asks me to inspire those of you who feel drawn to begin to grow spikenard bulbs here in Australia.
In the meantime, if you feel an attraction to Mary and Jesus’ story and feel this would assist you to awaken your heart, please follow Mary’s instruction:
Place seven drops of spikenard with seven drops of pure olive oil, preferably oil grown here in Australia, into a small bowl. Bless it under the full moon. Then with two fingers (ring or Sun finger and big or Saturn finger) dip into the oil and bless each one of your chakras from head to toe. This awakens and invokes divine energy: Then say the Divine Twin Flame Invocation:
“From the heart of life, and the soul of God; awakened I am today;
The shakinah power of Goddess light shines forth from my heart forever;
I am that I am the power resplendent; For love shines the way..”
This is your anointment prayer, which you can repeat as often as you wish. The spikenard is the Feminine power of Mary Magdalene and the olive oil the Masculine power of Jesus. Together they are the divine twin flame.
If this calls you, share it with others but know that when you feel anxious and upset for any reason, big or small, you can stepped away from the shakinah to wander in the desert of forgetfulness (also known as the reptilians). Return to the true power; the power of the feminine that is guided purely by healing and love and NOT by knowing anything in particular.
If this intrigues you, please read my Goddess series.
