Her hands almost touch and her lips are tense as if she is speaking. She wanders through the wilderness as she has been doing for thirty years. There are many legends about Mary Magdalene and what happened to her after the Gospels story ends. In the Bible she had followed Jesus, washed his feet with oils and her tears, then dried them with her hair. Later legends made her a prostitute who repented. After the New Testament events she went into the wilderness to devote herself to Christ clothed only in her hair. That is why she is always the one with the longest hair. Even the repenting Magdalene is usually shown as an almost sensual beauty, barely dressed holding a crucifix, Bible and skull and of course her jar of ointment. Donatello did it differently. He sculpted her after her long wanderings. Wafer thin, she lost most of her teeth. The ascetic life has taken a toll. Still she is completely devoted. It is so far removed from all the other depictions of Mary Magdalene. You just have to go to Florence to see her for yourself. I assure you, when you stand in front of her and look her in the eye, she will take your breath away.

The divine alchemy card appears today as a sign of inner transformation. You are being reminded that you have the power to turn “lead into gold” as you transform limited thinking into higher awareness. Healing occurs as you choose thoughts of love, forgiveness, and peace. Your vibration lifts as you release attachments from fear and judgment. You are creating little miracles as you increasingly hold space for the presence of God in your heart. Aqua Aura Quartz is clear quartz that has bonded with vaporized gold. It is calming, and helps in making a conscious connection with the divine. Mary Magdalene is an ascended master with deep wisdom and understanding of human suffering. She is a strong guide to call upon to help lead you from thoughts of discord to peace.

Delicious morning 🙋♂️from beautiful California, beautiful Lovers. Who 🙋🏻🙋🏾🙋🏼🙋🙋♂️wants to forget everything and join me in some Saturday morning decadence?😍😋
Did you see the movie #marymagdalene ? The first movie with biblical background which focuses on a woman. This movie and especially Mary Magdalene inspires me so much - absolutely a role model. She refuses to marry a man and to stay at home! Is there a religious charactere who inspires you? Why?
For years in my 20’s I experienced excruciatingly painful and debilitating menstrual cramps...
The pain was so unbearable that I would need to take extra strength painkillers. After the pain subsided, I would find myself in a deeply psychic state of awareness. For years, I experienced the bliss and pain of my period. .
Each month I would feel intense pain and then be initiated into the great wisdom of my womb. Through my intuitive states, I came to understand that I was not alone in this pain. This pain was the global feminine cramp from thousands of years of patriarchal oppression and suppression of women.
This was the pain of my ancestors.
The pain of the Earth.
The pain of my sisters.
I finally stopped tolerating the pain and chose to become pro-active in healing this pain. I deeply committed to implementing natural and holistic approaches, emotionally, physically and spiritually. I deepened into the wisdom I found from the patterns of tracking of my menstrual cycle and felt myself awakening to the power and ancient lineage of the Moon within me. 🌙
As I continued on this path, my womb pain subsided and healed. I came to understand who I was and my life purpose. Doubt dissolved. Confidence increased. A sense of belonging and true power was birthed. And a connection to the Sacred Feminine that all women are a part of was restored.
What has your womb journey been, sister?
If you are struggling in any way with your menstrual cycle and wish to experience healing and lasting transformation, and/or yearn to deepen on your own Sacred Feminine path, I welcome you to join @woman.rising and me for Priestesses Of The Moon, July 10 - Aug 31.

What an incredible gift last night was at Spirit Led Live. I sometimes forget how soft and love abundant life can be. The feminine divine presence was so vast last night and I am so grateful to take off the veils that have hold me back from my own light. I claim my light. #spiritual#spiritled#feminine#divine#marymagdalene#love#peace#grace
We are hardwired to LOVE —
For too long of a time, I stayed closed to love.
I deeply believed it was too dangerous of a task, to open myself to love and its vulnerable power.
I fought it so hard every time but after every sabotaged relationship, I would feel emptier than before...disheartened that I did not know to love after years of pretending to be strong and without a need for love.
Everything changed when I fell in love with myself during my pilgrimage to Provence, where I learned about Mary Magdalene and finally met the love that existed in me long before I failed to recognize I already WAS love.
I am thrilled to share my FREE conversation on LOVE and relationships and how I let go of my fears and wounds to love truly.
In a recent conversation withy friend @thegirlfriendmanifesto, I shared much on love and relationships.
DURING THIS ILLUMINATING SESSION, YOU'LL DISCOVER:
The thing men crave the most
The power of healing and loving yourself through the pain and joys of transformation.
The message Mother Mary has for YOU
The sacred invitation to heal your life from the inside out.
And so much more... Click on the link in profile to catch my upcoming conversation!
Yesterday was an absolutely magical day. Celebrated Litha, summer solstice, with a group online sadhana at 6 am with 68 beautiful women. We celebrated sisterhood and the eternal embrace of healing and the water energy. Manifestation of pure Union...an amazing way to celebrate International Yoga Day. See you at the Temple. Ahava 🌹🌹🌹 #marymagdalene#sacreddance#wombawakening
Who was/is Mary Magdalene and how does she manifest within the human psyche today? What role did she play as an apostle of Yehoshua of Nazareth? How (and why) was her character reduced to merely that of a cured and penitent sinner? Follow my blog over the next few weeks as we approach the holy feast day of this enigmatic figure whose truth continues to fight towards the surface of our minds. I’ll be touching on the works of several incredible authors who have brought her to life, worked valiantly to clear her name, and give us practices by which we can develop a relationship with her. ✨
For millennia, across cultures, women have found healing and soul nourishment in the togetherness of our sacred circles. We have met in sacred groves, bathed in ancestral rivers, and danced in temples dedicated to the Divine. As we have come together, we have celebrated and honored the Sacred Feminine in one another in the sharing of rituals, dance, music and rites of passage.
In honor of the Sacred She within, She Is Love is pleased to invite you to immerse your body and soul at our sacred Temple mandala. Like the ancient temples of our ancestresses, the She Is Love Temple is a protective and nurturing vessel surrounded by Mother Nature and provides a safe space for women to come together for individual and collective soul tending.
She Is Love Temple is for the woman looking to tap into her ancient Feminine Wisdom through sacred Shakti dance, Magdalene womb rituals, Dakini embodiments, playful art, nourishing food, salt water pools, and communion with nature. The She Is Love Temple will be hosted by local priestesses, Daniela Riva, Kalista Saraphina “Skydancer”, and Annalisa Derr—each of whom expresses three different sacred lineages—and invites you to deepen into, crack open, and fall in love with your Divine Feminine essence.
Our journey together at the Temple will commence in-circle at 10am and will conclude in-circle at 5:30 pm on July 7th.
We three priestess honor the Sacred Feminine in YOU and look forward to sharing the gifts of Her together. Register here: http://www.sheislove.com/temple/ #sacredshe#temple#sacredfeminine#divinefeminine#womensempowerment#wisewomen#dakini#bharatanatyam#marymagdalene#wombwisdom#sheislove#embodiment
Summer Solstice, Sun moving into Cancer - feeling really comfortable and happy in these energies✨Wishing you all an enjoyable celebration💫
"I am the one whom they call Life, and you have called Death. I am the one whom they call Law, and you have called Lawlessness. I am the one whom you have pursued, and I am the one whom you have seized. I am the one whom you have scattered, and you have gathered me together. I am the one before whom you have been ashamed, and you have been shameless to me." - Thunder, Perfect Mind
Our culture has lost its connection to the Elder Woman and the wisdoms and powers she bestows unto her offspring. It is essential in the empowerment of women to reclaim this sacred aspect of our being. •
EXERCISE: Take sometime today to reconnect with your grandmother or another mature woman that has nurtured and guided you in life.
EXERCISE: Look at a mature woman you don't know and find 3 things you appreciate about her:
1) something you consider beautiful
2) something powerful
3) something you respect
Share with her your appreciation. •
Share in the comments below your experiences with these two exercises. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We visited ROSSLYN CHAPEL today on our own Quest for the Holy Grail.
Intrigued by THE DA VINCI CODE we were excited to discover the real Rosslyn Chapel was only a 30-minute bus ride from Edinburgh.
Staying in Edinburgh for 2-weeks on our Round-the-World Adventure of a Lifetime, we knew we had to conduct our own investigation and Grail Quest.
Rosslyn Chapel exceeded our imaginations are expectations. Dating back to 1446, and with ties to Knights Templar, Freemasons, and stories and legends to the holy grail, our visit will be one of our most memorable experiences in Edinburgh.
During our visit we saw the tomb of a Knight Templar, marks of the Freemasons, Pagan and Christian symbols, and unexplained stone carvings that pre-date possible knowledge adding to the mystery. We also visited the crypt beneath the Chapel. How cool is that.
While at the Chapel, we also visited Rosslyn Castle and the graveyards. We learned a lot about the Sinclair or St Clare family and their history in Rosslyn back to the 1200s.
We thoroughly enjoyed our Grail Quest and highly recommend a visit to Rosslyn Chapel if you are in Edinburgh or the area.

۞ Golden Solstice 🌞Activations ۞
۞ Wishing everyone a beautiful and blessed summer/winter solstice, wherever you are on this gorgeous gem of a planet 🌎of ours. It’s time to SHINE our diamond light radiance like never before! 💎
۞ In the Northern Hemisphere (where I reside) it’s summer solstice and this morning in a feminine essence alchemy mentorship client session we entered the Temple of the Sun to gift this gorgeous Earth AngELic woman with some potent golden solar soulstice activations, along with Isis, Hathor, Mother Mary, Mary Mags and my AngELic Higher Self. (If you are interested in learning more about my Feminine Essence Alchemy Mentorship sessions, I will have a couple new mentorship spots opening up in July, so I invite you to go to my website 👆and read more about them under the “Work Together” tab. From there you can schedule a free discovery call).
۞ Please know that you too can call on ANY or ALL of these Divine Feminine Ascended Master Mentors for golden SOLAR solstice activations straight from the great central sun! From today until 6/24 (the solstice portal) you can also ask and pray to receive more of your Higher Self’s gifts - mastered over many lifetimes - as well as DNA upgrades during this most potent of HOLY day portals. I am assured you can ask for and receive these solar activations no matter where you live on the planet. It IS important to ask and pray for these activations in a quiet and ritualistic space, a space that feels sacred and nourishing to you, such as at one of your altars or a meditation nook, the garden or a favorite place in nature, or even in the bath. It’s a great way to practice using your VOICE in prayer as you ask for these golden solstice solar activations. If you have more questions about this process, you can shoot me a DM or email me.
۞ Seeing as we are at the half point of 2018, it is also a good time for some celebration, self reflection and intention setting. (Between now and Sunday 6/24 is ideal). You can do some journaling or meditation as part of the process outlined above 👆.
۞ It’s important to celebrate all you’ve accomplished and how you’ve evolved over the past 6 months, continued 👇
At Jesus' empty tomb... I just can't explain what happened to me there... I couldn't stop crying... Mary Magdalene stood crying outside the tomb. She was still weeping, when she stooped down and saw two angels inside. They were dressed in white and were sitting where Jesus' body had been. One was at the head and the other was at the foot. The angels asked Mary, “Why are you crying?”
