Slow down, breathe, go for a walk, relax, go to the ocean or the trees.
Make room and be receptive. So many times it is our anxiety and mental pressure to make sense of things, that keep us from the clarity that wants to emerge.
When we learn to listen to these signs and accommodate their guidance, we don’t have to have a crisis or dramatic lesson to force us into reactive presence or change.
The greek etymology of the word ‘sin' is to ‘miss the mark’ and indeed she did.
She missed all the marks the church and patriarchal society placed on what it meant to be an a woman in her full glory.
Magdalene was fierce, she was wild power, a true heretic and embodiment of passionate feminine power that will not be controlled nor owned.
If you’ve ever felt that you were ‘too much’, you’ve felt her essence.
This is her wild dance within you.
Beckoning you to lean into your edges, to defy the norm, to awaken into ecstasy and surrender to your own deep, unbridled and wild love.
She dares us to challenge anything and everything which isn’t rooted in love and authenticity.
Through each one of us, the essence of her courage lives on.
Where could you challenge yourself and dare to lean in to an edge?
Where have you been judged or judged yourself for being too much?
May we each find within, the inner marriage needed to embody true, sustainable, gentle and fierce power.
Blessed Magdalene Feast beauties.
