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.
The MOTHER is the most powerful teacher and guide.
She is the leader in her home and one of, if not, the most sacred role on the planet.
Through food, word and action, she weaves her wisdom and emotional state into the inner beings of the family.
She raises the next generation who raises and teaches the next.
When the mother doesn’t heal the wounding inherited from her own mother and experience, she passes it on to her child.
When a mother remembers who she truly is, she epigenetically influences her children’s experience, clearing and flowering more possibility into their potential.
This is why it is said that the most POWERFUL CURSE and PRAYER is that of a mother.
Consciously, we think we learn and teach by being told what to do or how to do it, but our superseding unconscious is programmed by behaviors and responses we see and experience. We begin our programming in the womb and it continues to be conditioned and layered up until our 21 years of age.
Blessed be our mamas doing the work so their children can experience more of their true essence and have easier access to their genius!
Propagating life on the planet is no longer exclusive of birthing children, it never was but today we can more openly receive and honor this.
Mothering, gestating, birthing pangs and innate body intelligence, isn't reserved only to create human children. It's the divine inheritance of every woman, whether we birth a child or not.
Indeed, we are all pregnant with the seeds of Divine potential.
We are all mothers of the world.
By becoming our own healthy mothers, giving birth and nurturing our inner child self, we clear, we liberate, we grow up and thrive.
So that we may remember to rest in the regenerative powers of our womb and awaken its conscious creation and magnetic resources.
By giving birth to beauty, by creating and manifesting our authentic and embodied expression, we fulfill our greatest potential... the power of giving life.
One of the most powerful truths The Magdalene wishes for us to remember is how to embody our divine femininity and masculinity. Through this embodiment of Holy Union we will find restoration.
I have journeyed with archetypes through challenging, dark and desolate inner landscapes to reach their tombs of buried secrets and find their temple within my being.
One of the greatest catalyzing archetypes and guides of my own life and narrative, is the one of the Magdalene.
To me, she represents the power behind the throne, the wisdom thats endured ages. A woman of gentle but fierce power. A woman of inteGRITy and passion.
The guiding red thread woven into the lineages of every living woman.
Mary Magdalene, embraced and walked the path of every challenge and projection woman has ever experienced only to show to us, women of today, that restoration is truly possible.
May we all honor and awaken into our Magdalene qualities of fiercely devotional loving and Sacred Union.
