Mary Magdalene, the beloved bride of Christ is the embodiment of the Feminine Christ energy, love, fertility, compassion and wisdom. She was the High Priestess of Initiation of the Temple of Isis and initiated Jesus Christ into his Christhood by anointing his feet.
Growing up within the Christian religion, I recall confusion as to who this woman was named Mary Magdalene. I recall stories where she was mistaken to be a prostitute. Yet, this was not Mary Magdalene.
Mary Magdalene was the beloved of Jesus and one of his disciples. She is the one who could anoint Jesus, as she had already been initiated into the sacred rites that she passed to Jesus when she anointed him. There are also emerging Coptic texts telling of the marriage of Jesus to Mary Magdalene.
Sage Holloway, author of the Mythical Goddess Tarot, chose Mary Magdalene for the major arcana card Initiation. As artist, I brought Mary forth as a pregnant priestess dressed in green and gold, holding the alabaster jar of sacred anointing oils. Mary Magdalene represents the Divine Feminine energy that initiates each of us into our own Christhood. She calls forth the higher energy of the Christ light and invites you into that its loving wisdom.This initiation brings new life and renewal, awakening.
The truth of Mary Magdalene is emerging to reconnect each of us to the power of the Divine Feminine and its role in awakening our true nature as Divine Beings.
Invoke the Power of Mary Magdalene and the Feminine Christ Light
Create an altar. Altars are great places to focus your intention, and your prayer, as well as to open a column of light for your angels and beings of light to join you. Dedicate a space, small or large, to bring a focus to Mary Magdalene as your Goddess Guide. It doesn’t require a lot of room, even a dresser in your bedroom will work. Place an image of Mary Magdalene, or small statue, flowers, stones, a candle and items of sacred meaning.
Mary Magdalene Invocation and Anointing. Invoke Mary Magdalene by focusing on her and saying “hello.” Give her your thanks for her presence and her wisdom and her blessings she is bringing to you now. Bring her into your mind, in your heart, and in your words. Ask her to initiate you into a higher state of consciousness, to heal your heart, your body and your mind.
Use Frankincense, Myrrh and Spikenard as your sacred anointing oil. Pray into the oil, putting in blessings of love and gratitude, forgiveness and grace. Then place it on your third eye, the back of your neck (particularly your medulla oblongata and brainstem), as well as your heart. Breath it in deeply three times.
Sit in contemplation and prayer at the altar. Set aside time each day to sit at your altar, putting your attention on the great temple priestess, Mary Magdalene. Sit after you have anointed yourself with the sacred oils. You may also want to burn frankincense and myrrh. Create a sacred temple space to strengthen your own energy field and to cultivate the heart of compassion and wisdom. Open to receive the pleasure of this quiet and fragrant energy. Listen and open to the guidance of this dear temple sister.
Journal Your Guidance with Mary Magdalene. Keep a sacred journey and guide book from your temple space time with Mary Magdalene. Draw, journal and open to the messages and feelings from meditation with Mary. Extend your focus beyond sitting at your altar or in your meditation. Ask Mary Magdalene to come to you with her guidance in your daily life. Take notes when you feel, sense, know the synchronicities are born of your directed communication with Magdalene. This will continue to expand your awareness and cultivate your intuitive knowing.
Leave prayers and messages of love and gratitude on the altar. As with all relationships, gratitude grows all things and moves you more deeply into the frequency of love. Take time to write your prayers and messages to Magdalene. Bring her flowers and leave on the altar. The amount of attention you give, will always return to you in blessings beyond what you can measure.
Day Visions and Night Dreams. The more attention you give Mary Magdalene with your desire to connect to her and gain her guidance, the more she will appear to you in your daytime and your night time dreams. Take each step suggested and any you are also guided to take, and become receptive and curious like a child … How might she guide me today? What is it like to hear or sense her? Have a journal by your bed so you can record any dreams that come and write them down immediately upon rising. You will become more wise as you engage at this level.
Mary Magdalene is ready to bring you into a higher way of being. As temple priestess she will assist you in making your life more sacred, and returning you to the temple of light and love that lives within you.
