Nothing like that you filthy animals, but now that I’ve got your attention I think you’ll be interested in this little story.
It’s as if there was a secret I knew that was yet to be revealed but I couldn’t quite put my finger on it. Until that is, I came across the book Mary Magdalene Revealed by Meggan Watterson on a recent escapade. It looked unassuming on the outside, but the contents were something quite incendiary and revelatory - quite literally. The book did what it said on the tin.
As I began reading on boxing day in bed I entered into a different world. One I stayed immersed in for the best part of 4 days as I let the revelations and hidden truths seep into my bones.
It turns out that everything that we’ve been taught about Mary Magdalene was wrong. Or more directly put - manipulated, destroyed and banished from history by the Church.
Learning the truth
Did you know Mary wrote her own gospel? Which was ordered to be destroyed (along with other texts referencing female teachings) in the 5th century. It turns out for the first few hundred years post the death of Jesus (if you’re a believer) there were a multitude of ‘Christianities’ abound. It seems like that was all a bit too much for those in power at the time, and it was decided that the Bible should be codified, simplified and (to all intents and purposes) to have women written out.
As I soaked in this information my whole body knew it was the truth. That women have equal rights and access to divinity (Jesus was as I believe as human as he was divine) and that we had been relegated to chattel and prostitutes by some ill meaning and ignorant men hungry for power and control (yes this is true as the council that codified the bible at the time were all men - all 500 of them).
Part of me wanted to wage war and scream from the top of a mountain about the injustice of all of it. I felt the mighty weight of oppression that had rested on the shoulders of my ancestral sisters for millennia and the complete desecration and systematic stealing of power they had suffered. I felt a sacred rage rise within me, and equally a rising and return of my own power at knowing the truth. Finally.
At the same time as feeling intensely angry I felt a huge wave of relief because as it turns out, the truth will set you free. The same applies to our emotions, we can avoid, stuff and bottle them up and end up with disease, or we can face them head on and allow them to flow and return to a state of peace.
The next stage of our evolution
Why am I sharing this? Why is this important you might ask?
Whether you identify as a Christian or not it doesn’t matter. With our world history, you simply cannot escape the past. You can try to run from it, disown it, say it doesn’t apply to you, but guess what, it will always catch up with you somewhere down the track. We didn’t create the original problem, but I believe with this knowledge we have a responsibility to do something about it.
Why? Because the divine feminine - the wisdom of Mary and her gospel - has been hidden from us all this time - and I believe it’s teachings are what is going to help us transition to the next stage of our evolution.
I’m not here man bashing. I love men. History is what it is, but this situation has gone on far too long. What this discovery brings to me is the remembrance that we are all equal - and that in order for health and harmony to exist - we must learn to work together and balance our polarities. This means women and men leading in partnership, with mutual respect and equal balance.
Finding the balance
It’s evident to see how the imbalanced masculine influence pervades - conquer, destroy, growth at all costs. This is not sustainable and we know it. The feminine is the loving, harmonising force. Yet, ignore it at your peril - as can be seen in mother nature when she has been pushed too far. It will destroy all in its wake in an instant to restore homeostasis. It is present in the cycles of birth and death, where having one without the other is simply not possible. It’s presence is a wellspring of boundless unconditional love and nourishment.
Men and women have both masculine and feminine energies, and these must be harmonised internally and externally. Healing our wounds with the opposite sex is vital, otherwise we will continue to project our unhealed trauma outwards and the cycle of pain, suffering and destruction will continue to loop without end.
The way out is IN - specifically through the heart. Seeing with the eyes of the heart as Mary said over 2000 years ago - is the way to peace.
Take a moment and close your eyes.
Take a deep breath and drop your awareness into your body.
Take a second deep breath and bring your mind into your heart.
Notice what you feel here.
This is the place we are invited to return to - learning to see each other through the eyes of love. This is how we create heaven on earth.
The path of healing
I’m blessed to have in my life many powerful, incredible men, who hold full respect and reverence for the feminine. I believe this is a direct result of the work I’ve been doing to heal my own relationship to the masculine over the last few years. It is honestly my greatest pleasure to work with and hold space with my brothers. This is where the real deep healing work happens - male and female working together in harmony and devotion. In this space miracles abound. If this idea sounds deeply appealing to you, I invite you to explore it for yourself.
Furthermore, I highly recommend this book if you’re ready to rediscover some secrets that you know you never forgot - whether you're a man or woman.
Are you ready?
Breathe the change you wish to see in the world.
P.S. I have a few ideas about how we can begin to work with this, so keep a watch out
P.P.S A big thank you to some of the amazing men in my life, that are out in the world doing amazing things
