For some time now, I have had what I refer to as a minor obsession. I have been fascinated by the Marys in the Bible, especially Mary Magdalene. She would just keep showing up in different books I would pick up or someone would give me something that was representative of one of the Marys. I couldn’t figure out why. Don’t we always want to know why? So, I just let it be, knowing that someday more would be revealed.
Ta Ta da da! Someday has arrived. As I have explored this idea that we are not only being called to wake up spiritually, but to also be raised up to become spiritual adults, I am recognizing the power of the Divine Feminine. It is one thing to have a spiritual experience and another to do the consistent work that is required to allow that experience to transform all aspects of our being.
One of my challenges over the years with the idea of teaching about the Marys, who represent the Divine Feminine, is that I don’t think of myself as a feminist, or a women’s libber. Yet, there is something that is so profound and True about what I believe Mary has to say to us today. This teaching is not in opposition to the Divine Masculine. It enhances and brings balance into all of life. In the Bible there is the reference to the bride of Christ. It has been interpreted to mean humankind. If we don’t raise up the Divine Feminine within us, who is the bride?
As more and more people wake-up in consciousness, it is imperative that we provide support and nurturing for them to develop all aspects of themselves to match the awakened energy. It is as if we are teenagers in consciousness. We have adult bodies, but not the brain development or consciousness of an adult. It is the Divine Feminine within each of us that can bring us into balance and harmony: into the fullness of our being.
