October 2016 Spiritual Messages with Mary Magdalene

I want to share some revelations I had about the ego recently: Often during our spiritual journey on Earth, we are warned of the ego; don’t let the ego put ideas in your head, don’t let the ego put you in fear, etc, etc.  Today I had the revelation that our spiritual development does not mean we are here to suppress the ego.  Our spiritual development IS the ego.  

We come to Earth to physically experience our god-selves.  As spirits, we inherently have all spiritual knowledge and understanding because our spirits are fully developed; we are very wise and ancient souls! Our egos are brand new, as they are part of our new, physical bodies, and are therefore undeveloped.  Earth is like a garden, our spirits are the gardeners, and our egos are the bulbs.   How our ego grows–which is how we physically experience–depends on how we nourish it.  Our spirits are here to guide our ego’s physical experience and integrate with it.  

This means that when fear, worry, hate, judgement and such take over, rather than saying, “Get out, ego thoughts!” we can say, “I hear you; I acknowledge you; let us work together.”  I get the sense that this is important now in order to move forward, because we are working on uniting our spirits with our egos & bodies.  We are working on having physical experiences that experience our spiritual power.  Our ego is at the core of our physical experience, so it is our job to develop it with our spiritual truth.  

Now, onto our October Messages from Mary Magdalene, one of my favorite ascended masters and spiritual teachers!   I’ve only known for a day that Mary was around me, ready to give a message, and she is incredibly playful.  Her aura was a brilliant magenta color this time around, giving off feelings of security, strength, and love.  We had a little conversation about her life with Jesus, and here is what I learned:

Mary Magdalene was actually Jesus’ wife, having been betrothed at a very young age.  Many of Jesus’ teachings were also Mary’s teachings as well; in fact, they perfectly balanced each other in every spiritual sense, as they both had equal parts masculine and feminine energy, but physically represented one of each.  Mary helped keep Jesus grounded and assertive, whereas Jesus helped Mary connect to her gentleness.  They respected each other greatly, absolutely adored each other in every sense, and had a very active sex life.  Some followers were uncomfortable with Mary embracing her sexuality so openly, but really they were experiencing a fear of feminine power and male-female partnership.  Mary loved her body as much as she loved her spirit, uniting them perfectly.  Jesus and Mary had a very equal partnership, in order to show how two energies can unite into one and be perfectly balanced.

She then showed me movements throughout history the last 150 years, from women wearing pants to current movements such as being body positive, abolishing slut and prude shaming, “freeing the nipple”, and movements of people owning and standing up for their race, gender, bodies and more.  These movements and developments that are focused on our physical selves are all connected to a similar energy: awakening to freedom and allowing inner power to shine outward.  She said that we are uniting our spiritual knowledge with our physical bodies: in short, working on uniting two energies into one! By bringing our spiritual self-love into our physical realm & our ego, we are becoming stronger than ever before.  

Whereas September was highly focused on closing doors, feeling out of control, and major release and shifts, October has an inviting energy.  It will be a time to be filled with a sense of empowerment, tying up loose ends, and getting your focus back.  Major insights are inevitable, and intuition will be loud and clear…there may even be some surprises in store for us all as we begin building a new foundation for ourselves.  

Here is Mary Magdalene’s Message:

Hello darlings, I am Mary Magdalene, and I am so happy to provide you a message at this moment in time.  You have done so much work in turning the wheel.  This month is promising, as you are getting closer to mastering the wheel.  You may experience a lot of push during this time, as in push-back and pushing against.  You are opening new doors for you, and new light is coming in.  

Think of it this way, as you have been letting go internally so much, letting go and releasing emotions, old patterns and behaviors, old ideas…all that is internal to you, and for some it has been reflected in your external life.  But now that the majority of you has let go internally, you will be moving on to the external. Pushing through the standards, the norms, the rules and the walls that your current cultures and societies have enforced upon you.  

For years you have been emptying a box, releasing that which does not serve you, letting go of everything in side that box.  You will now be shifting towards releasing the box itself and allowing it to disintegrate gently.  You have opened the lid of the box, are letting the light in, and once you have seen that light, you realize you do not need the box and will be getting rid of it altogether.  

We call this breaking free as you learn to work with energy more and more, and less with old ideas that do not belong to you.  Ideas are simply the intellectual interpretation of the energy you feel and allow into your being.  Ideas are manifestations of energy, and in this way you can detect what kind of energy you are retaining, and what kind of energy you can work with.  You can tell the difference between lower energies and higher energies, as higher energies are light, playful and enthusiastic, whereas lower energies give you thoughts of worry and doubt.  As you advance in working with energy, and use it to break down barriers and manifest open fields of possibilities, you are advancing your egos into a purer form of your God energy.  

This month, I advise you to be brave.  You will need to be brave, take chances, and awaken.  Awakening can be jolting and scary, but it will also make you feel more alive than you ever have before.  This is a time to celebrate your experience.  Celebrate being alive.  You have trouble remembering how to do that.  You often don’t feel alive, or lately you have been filled with dread.  This energy now is bringing you back to the excitement of living, and the purpose of living.  

How to embrace this energy?  You must keep and hold your intention…THAT is working with energy.  Upon waking up, falling asleep, or throughout the day, make the intention that you wish your experience to be joyful, meaningful, peaceful…whatever you wish.  This is how you begin working with energy!   You are moving out of healing and into power.  

You must appreciate yourself during this time; this is the number one assignment I lovingly hand to you.  Appreciate your body, your mind, your spirit, and your experience.  Appreciate your point of view, the lessons you have learned and are currently learning, and all that has assisted you.  In order to move into your power, you must feel deserving of that power, and thankful for your holy Self.  This will help you embrace all that you are, and step into the light.  

I am here to help you embrace yourself and give you the fierceness that you require.  The fierceness in me is also the fierceness in you, and I will help you awaken your fire if you desire.  I am here for whenever you need, and love you always.  I love you now and have always loved you now. 

September 26-October 2, 2016 Weekly Spiritual Messages

It’s important to stay balanced this week and keep fear out of the picture.  It can be a very productive week, with new projects coming in, so be sure not to wear yourself out.  Allow others to give to you, just as you do to them.  You can also pull back when you need, and not allow yourself to get sucked into the drama or concerns of others.  You may need to compromise, or give up ‘control’, but really you are being guided to take care of yourself and steer in another direction.  The weekend, and the beginning of October, gets off to a promising start.  The sense of a ‘new adventure’ hangs in the air, and going down an unknown path that has creative and fulfilling energy behind it.  We continue the theme of ‘endings & new beginnings’ for 2016, but with new beginnings around the corner.  You are realizing more about your own authenticity, and allowing this new energy to open up doorways for you.

September 19-25, 2016 Weekly Spiritual Messages

We go out of Mercury Retrograde this week (cue music!), and already it is shaping up to be a week of clearing away the cobwebs and starting fresh.  The beginning of the week starts off with a stabilizing energy: making a firm foundation, healing finances, and holding your own against authoritative figures are all themes on Monday and Tuesday.  The middle of the week shows emotional feeling and going on a spiritual journey as we week out other possibilities and heal from the past.  Look for the light in these situations and find time for play and laughter.  The weekend is about inspiration and also seeking out new possibilities.  Creativity, teamwork and exploring possibilities are highlighted, as we embrace the opportunity for change.  No matter what, keep the faith in yourself this week and stay connected to your Higher Self and Power.  Call on the Universe to guide you and work through you, as you are never alone.

September 12-18, 2016 Weekly Spiritual Messages

This is a great week in terms of taking care of yourself and following your inner guidance.  You may experience new opportunity, seeds to plant, or simply a new sense of being.  Our guidance is to focus on our heart center and intuitive senses.  Be aware of the energy others are offering and your own energy as well!  Let us put heart-centered intentions and energy into our actions and words.  This week is about building up faith and confidence in yourself…it is more beneficial to step forward with these type of feelings rather than with doubt, after all.  The week could be busy and abundant, but also tiring, so the weekend highlights resting and balancing yourself to even things out.  No matter what, let your sense of magic and power rise within you this week; experiencing your power and your love, no matter what the circumstances, are the ultimate experience.

September 5-11, 2016 Weekly Spiritual Messages

This week brings a nice relief of positive energy.  We are encouraged to let go of emotional struggles and embrace the energy of opportunity and self-love.  Changes are on the horizon, and they all happen within us first.  The beginning of the week is about peace, as we acknowledge our strength and capabilities.  The middle of the week encourages rest, reflection, and emotional awareness, which helps us look at the opportunities inside and outside of us.  The end of the week focuses on valuing our talents, and what we deserve…a person or some type of physical message may remind us of this in a surprising way!  As a whole, this week focuses on opening our hearts and shifting our experiences to more positive ones where we set out to make change occur.
