I was recently chatting with my husband about Mary Magdalene. She has been a constant presence in my life but I have always felt doubtful about some of the teachings attributed to her and widespread around the world. I don’t mean to be disrespectful to those who have brought forward Her teachings and messages. I just feel there is a part of these teachings that doesn’t feel like Her at all, to me. I haven’t written or talked about it before as I felt it would be arrogant on my part.
Then today, the voice of my Spirit gently nudging me to write saying: “Michela, this is not about you”. It is so true. Who am I to stand in the way? It is about what She teaches me and what I need to bring forth from her to the world. There will be people who will agree with this post and others who will not. And that is perfectly fine. My hope is that, no matter the teaching, we are all following our womb heart. I recently read a quote by Osho: “Nobody is superior, nobody is inferior, but nobody is equal either. People are simply unique, incomparable. You are you, I am I.” What I bring forth, it may just be for some. The entire world doesn’t have to agree with it. And I don’t feel the need to be right, anymore. As we all have unique vibrations, we’ll respond to different energies in different ways. It doesn’t really matter what Mary’s message is, as long as it comes from Her voice within us, and that we share it with integrity.
In some of the teachings I don’t feel or understand, people talk about the Mary Magdalene’s wounds. Some people call her the Christed Whore, the Sacred Prostitute. You see, these titles and wounds do not resonate with the Mary I know.
Mary Magdalene was not a prostitute and in her life she was and Adept, a High Priestess, an Awakened One. She knew how her life was going to unfold, the teachings she had to bring forth and the path she had to walk. The Sacred Prostitute or Christed Whore were titles that later in the centuries were given to her. She never considered herself a whore as in truth She was not one. I don’t feel we need to focus on healing wounds that she doesn’t have. I am not saying that these wounds do not exist. I am saying that they are not Hers.
The wounds are indeed alive in the consciousness of women on earth. But they are not Magdalene’s wounds. Maybe she allowed that to happen so that women could really journey within to the source of these wounds and heal them. Or maybe there is another reason I am not aware of, but in the end it doesn’t really matter. What matters to me now is to change this old paradigm way of seeing Her. Mary Magdalene the Awakened One, the Great Teacher, the High Priestess…. call Her with these beautiful and powerful titles, or simply Mary. Please stop calling Her a Sacred Prostitute, because she was not one!
Mary Magdalene has been a teacher and guide for many when she was alive and after she ascended. When she comes to me, she comes in her simple dress in all her glorious natural beauty. She comes to me as the human Mary who fully embraced and merged her humanity together with her divinity. The Mary I know, I Love and I Trust is the one of the humblest Divine Beings I have ever met. She is strong and wise, loving and kind. She doesn’t feel the Sacred Whore wound within her….. and to be honest, I don’t feel that wound within me. I know this is a very extensive subject… there is so much to say about it. Here I just wanted to lay down my belief in a nutshell, or plant a little seed. There is some food for thoughts and people will agree and disagree with me… and All is good.
May the Love of Mary Magdalene be with you, Always
