The Magdalena: “Sacred Union and Partnership” Channeled through Linda Dillon, Council of Love, August 14, 2014
You are the ones that are anchoring the new paradigm, the new grid, the new way of community of Nova Earth. And that way is through union and re-union…
Suzanne Maresca: Good morning and welcome to another offering of Heavenly Blessings with Linda Dillon, channel for the Council of Love and author of The New You – Emerging into the Brilliance of Humanity’s Heart Consciousness, and myself, Suzanne Maresca.
Our special guest today is Mary Magdalene to offer further guidance on human relationships, unions and partnerships, all of a sacred nature. Our interactions with others contribute to and in fact are inseparable from what we came here to do during these days of transition. Mary has been addressing Linda’s New You’ers on this topic and she has more information to offer to our listeners today.
Which brings me to something that I want to say and that’s to offer a big, juicy ‘thank you’ to our listeners. We really love you all and so appreciate your support and hearing how much you’ve been enjoying the show. Good morning Linda!
Linda Dillon: Good morning Suzi and good morning everybody! And yes, we do love and appreciate you and love hearing your feedback.
SM: Yes, very much.
LD: Yes, it feels very much like we are building community and you know, a lot of what we are going to be talking about today is really about building community, and building community in our new way.
SM: Beautiful, where we all realise our connection to one another and to All That Is, and it’s all about Love.
LD: It’s all about Love. How boring is that! Love, Love, Love.
SM: No, it’s awesome. It’s what we’re made of, why we are here.
LD: It’s absolutely awesome.
SM: Yeah. So it’s very interesting the way that we started the show this morning. At the very last minute we got into the studio with some technical difficulties so anybody who is calling in who was having trouble, hopefully you are in the queue now and listening and everything is good.
LD: Yeah, it was very interesting because I think we had less than 30 seconds to go.
SM: Yeah, pretty much… [Laughter]
LD: So it was right down to the wire. But there’s no way they weren’t going to let Mary Magdalene come forward and speak today, and particularly on such an important subject. But also – I don’t know about everybody out there but I know you and I, Suzi, have this very soft, tender spot for The Magdalena and for that connection to that human, Divine Feminine energy that is so rich, and that we can relate to.
SM: Oh absolutely. And I’ve been thinking also that the reason that she was put out by the Catholic Church as, you know, a prostitute and shameful and all that sort of thing is because she represents, you know, human, Divine Feminine energy, and what better way to make that bad.
LD: Exactly, just to try anyway, to disempower her, to try, because I mean, it’s been… I mean, think of it, here we are, and that’s what she was saying to us, to me, to all of us this morning as I was getting ready is that, you know, here we are 2,000 years later and the truth wins out…
SM: Hmm, absolutely…
LD: …despite everything that various religions have tried to do in terms of discrediting or dishonoring that Divine Feminine in all of us. You know, this really fits with the Hour with an Angel issue of gender hatred or inequality because it doesn’t matter; at the end, as we’re making this transition, the truth is standing there right in front of us.
SM: Yes, yes indeed, and it feels as though…
SM: Hallelujah, that’s right. So, you know, Jesus is a wayshower for the rest of humanity as in this is what we can, you know, expect and hope for and work for ourselves as we are all children of God, and I believe that Mary Magdalene also serves the same purpose in the feminine way as in this is what we can have.
LD: Absolutely. And you know, I was doing my newsletter actually over the weekend and I put that in because it seems to me, particularly on this issue of union and sacred union and partnership and building community, is that when we hear one day from Yeshua, the next day we hear from Mary Magdalene, because it’s that balance you know, we hear from her and then we are going to hear from him. And it’s part of that perspective but it’s also part of our coming to understand “How does sacred partnership really work?” I loved the last channelling that she gave us because she talks about not just looking to events, you know like major events, which we tend to do as human beings, but to “How do you live a sacred partnership in the day to day?” you know because that’s really what it’s about.
SM: Yes, yes, and I think it has a lot to do with sharing a foundation with someone, when you have that foundational core, things in common, then you know, socks on the bathroom floor, wet towel in the corner, it doesn’t become quite as irritating, it may be almost an endearing thing ‘oh my sweetie left a sock on the floor’ instead of… I won’t say it; it would just be terrible… griping and grumbling. [Laughter]
LD: It’s true, and that approach to sacred union then spills over to your family, to your children, to your friends and that’s how it just ripples on out. And of course, the starting point – and I think she is going to talk to us about that this morning – is starting with ourselves.
SM: Indeed, absolutely true. We can’t offer to anyone else what we can’t give to ourselves.
SM: Lovely. So have you got a fabulous Magdalena meditation for us?
LD: I do. Our deep pink rose is here.
SM: Woohoo, alright.
LD: So, let us begin.
SM: Thank you.
LD: Oh, thank you Suzi.
So relax and take a nice, deep breath of pink. Start with the softest pink, the colour of the Mother’s gift of grace, and see that gentle pink as you breathe in through your nose, and on the out breath pushing down into your heart, and letting go of the day, the week, the season, the year. Give yourself this gift of simply being here, of relaxing into your chair or the floor, your car seat or the bed, wherever you are. Bring down those shoulders, relax your jaw, your hips, your knees, your feet and simply be.
Now let’s bring down that colour of pink a few shades to that bright, lipstick pink and breathe that in, and bring that pink to the center of your tri-flame, the center of your heart. So the pink is brightening up your pink diamond of your essential, divine self and feel it in balance with the blue diamond of the Divine Mother, the canary diamond, the Divine Father. Feel the sparkles and the warmth in your chest.
Now let’s bring it down a little further, the pink, bring it down into that deeper pink, almost fuchsia but not quite, the deepest, deepest pink rose, the rose of our beloved Magdalena, and breathe it in. I can smell her fragrance, the rose tinged with jasmine. Oh, it’s so beautiful. Breathe it in, put out your hands and arms as how we gather energy and bring it in to your heart, bring it in to that center of your tri-flame, the energy of Mary Magdalena. And feel that rose gently blossoming and entwining with your tri-flame, sustaining it, nurturing it, expanding it. Let us together welcome in this sweet sister.
Mary Magdalene: Greetings, I am The Magdalena.
MM: And welcome to you, beloved sister. And welcome to all of you, my beloved sisters and brothers, family of my heart, soul family of my journey. I throw open my arms, my heart, and I welcome you in as I have welcomed you in so many times; yes, 2,000 years ago, 10,000 years ago, 50,000 years ago. My beloved friends, we have been at this for a long time.
We do not know the meaning of ‘quit’ and we absolutely know, and embrace, the meaning of ‘surrender’. And we will talk a little bit this day about ‘surrender’ as I hopefully edge you along from acceptance of your magnificent self, to the place of surrender of your magnificent self, to the totality, the divinity, the magnificence ‘in form’ of who you are.
And yes, the topic that I have asked of speak of this day is Union – sacred union, divine union, sacred partnership, family. What is more dear to us? I would suggest very little.
When I have walked sweet Gaia as The Magdalena, I was what some felt – or thought or considered, certainly my family – as gifted. Now, I would like to say that I loved and honored my family, and I am glad that they viewed me in this way because it led to a path of preparation. But my beloved friends, there is not a single one of you who listens or who walks the planet that is not enormously gifted. It is just that the awakening to that acceptance of the fullness of your soul design, the bringing forth of all your talents, abilities, capacities is more acceptable and prevalent in this time, thank goodness.
But as a young child, and then as a young woman, I was prepared in the sacred ways through ritual, through teaching, particularly through the teaching of the Essenes – yes, what you would call Essenes – but also through many, for I did not simply walk a singular path, the same way that none of you walk a singular path. None of you, my beloved ones, are uni-dimensional. Yes, of course, that is a whole other conversation. You are multidimensional beings. But I simply mean that you do not have all but one interest.
My forte, my speciality, was that I was a very conscious channel and that served me well in terms of understanding in later years, as my journey progressed, my connection with Yeshua and yes, even the ability to telepathically, and physically of course, communicate. But I was also trained in the ways of sacred ceremony, of sacred ritual, for these were essential to many of our practices.
I labored, worked, embraced, loved, at moments hated, the rigorous nature of my training. But let us also say that part of that training, part of that journey in my early years, was the acceptance of physicality, the acceptance of beauty in all forms: the beauty of my body, of my hair, of my eyes, of my being, not as separate or distinct from the beauty of my soul or my love, my connection to the Mother, to the Father, to the One. And what we were taught very early on was the embrace of the gifts, including beauty, physicality, that you had brought forth for this lifetime, this incarnation, because these were direct gifts from the Mother, and they were part and parcel of your mission, your purpose and your unfoldment.
Now that became key – no, not with my Yeshua; I think he would have loved me no matter what – but it became key and what I could call ‘the friction’ that became the story, the myth, of Mary Magdalene. What so angered the male figures in power – yes, the Rabbis, the Pharisees, later the Catholics, but even many of the Jews – was that I would not deny my beauty or my power. And many saw this as a challenge and as arrogance, as conceit. They felt that I was – and judged me, harshly – as lacking in humility which, particularly in that situation, was considered a very feminine virtue. But false humility is not humility. To stand and accept the might, the power, the truth, the beauty, the grace of who you are and to live in that grace and beauty as an expression of the Divine Mother, and to be humbled by that gift in the truest sense of the word – now that is the way to live. False modesty has no place. It is the core issue of denial and judgement of self.
So part, and why I speak of this is because it pertains to thee, my beloved ones, part of my very early training and part of my instinctual, intuitive knowing and my conversations with what you think of as the Company of Heaven, was the knowing of my role in this grand unfoldment of the Mother’s plan, and my plan within that plan, and my plan in union with Yeshua. But before any of that could happen, before what you would think of as my public life truly began, there was the learning, the acceptance and the surrender to who I was, and might I even say ‘who I AM’ – in, out or in between form to this very day. And sweet angels, I am no different than you.
When I first began to work and encounter the energies of Yeshua, many things occurred. But like each of you, particularly when you are not in denial, I yearned for one who would meet me, join with me, conjoin with me, on equal ground, who would be madly in love with me, who would see me for the totality of who I was, both in spirit but also in form as woman. Yes, with shortcomings – I had a fiery temper! I yearned for someone to share the path with but I also knew that I would never, your term ‘settle’, for less than what I yearned for, for someone who would truly be my partner. And I knew this being to be Yeshua, that our contract had been formed long before we even met in physical reality. But let me be very clear – as soon as I saw him, he took my very breath away. The yearning in my heart disappeared and I could say to myself “There he is.” And I could see it in his eyes, in his smile, in his laughter, in his glance, that he knew the same.
We knew the unfoldment that lay in front of us. We did not rush it – although perhaps by those standards we did – but it was that not only recognition and acknowledgement but acceptance and surrender to each other, and to ourselves, to the yearnings of our own hearts, not merely spiritually – let me be very clear, for our love was physical and passionate, and normal. So yes, it did entail picking up stray pieces of clothing and washing dishes and gathering water. And it did include late nights sitting and talking and sharing wine and bread. And lonely nights when he was fulfilling what he needed to do.
But our union – and the reason I speak of this, our union, the union between Yeshua and I – is an example. Not the perfect example but the imperfect example, the human example, of what Love can be. And, it would not have been possible if each of us had not done the groundwork in terms of knowing, accepting, embracing our sacred selves and then the sacred union with the Mother/Father/One/Source/All, so that we both came – yes different interpretations, different opinions at times, different ways to express it which made for lively conversation – but it was to come together, not for one to override but to be equal partners and to form family and to be part of the extended family, and the extended community.
There is much emphasis that is often given on difficult transitions or sorrow or moments but truly our life, our time together was filled with joy, laughter, yes, some tears, but a deep knowing not only of the rightness of our union but the support.
When I retreated, shall I say, from the world – which if I was to incarnate I would not do again – but when I retreated, many ways it was because I felt that I was no longer supported in such a way and I became in some ways disillusioned with the human collective, which was very sad, and might I say in some ways incorrect.
Now why do I bring this up? I bring it up because each of you, my dear hearts, have these moments, particularly during this time of transition, of chaos. We thought that we lived in a time of great chaos. It was nothing compared to what you are experiencing and in that chaos there are moments when each of you think, “Am I disillusioned? Am I in despair? Am I in disappointment? Shall I simply withdraw?” And I suggest to you – actually, I urge you, I beg you, I plead with you – do not withdraw, because your beauty, your acceptance of your sacred self in community, in union, in family, is what creates Nova Earth. It is what brings forth the new paradigm. It is not merely your Ascension. Does that change? Yes it does change you and it already has and is changing you.
But what about after, what about during, what about right now? You are the ones, through your work, through your energies, through your consistency, your constancy that the Mother speaks of all the time; you are the ones that are anchoring the new paradigm, the new grid, the new way of community of Nova Earth. And that way is through union and re-union, not merely with us but with yourselves and each other, with the kingdoms. Cherish yourselves; you are so worth cherishing and do not deny yourself.
Now, I have put many things on the table this day, dear Suzanne. Where do you wish to begin?
LD: I fear we have lost the connection. I will call back…
SM: Okay. Thank you very much Mary for coming to talk with us on this subject. And as you are speaking several things come to me, for one you mentioned the Essenes and I have been very fascinated with that and I was hoping that you would come back for another show to talk about that in detail, would that be possible?
MM: I would be honored to come and to share the information about the Essenes.
SM: I am so happy about that, thank you. Alright, what can we look for in any relationship that signals to us that it is one worth working at, even if we feel some negative reaction? Is that reaction or response grounded in our wounding or in self-love?
MM: Probably a little bit of both, dear heart, but let us talk about this. There has been a wonderful, and not, training ground that the human race has had to deny themselves what they most desire; so it is so sad. So part of what you would call ‘wounding’ is this almost self-defeating mechanism that so many have of looking for what’s wrong. And sweet angel, I can guarantee you when you begin to look at what’s wrong, even when it’s right, it will always be wrong and it will always send up the flares or warning flags.
So for example, knowing some of the challenges, because both Yeshua and I were fully aware of many of the challenges, not all, but many of the challenges that we would face, so I, very easily, as powerful woman, just like you, just like all of you who are listening, could have said, “No thanks, this will never work.” But I also understood as woman, as spiritual being, that those concerns, those flags, those potential woundings that reflected earlier woundings, were the opportunity to heal, not only what lay within me and lay within Yeshua…as I say, we are your imperfect perfect example…it would not only heal our wounds, it would heal the collective wounds.
So, there is always going to be this ‘what if’ or ‘but’ that can interfere with you embracing and surrendering…that is why surrender is so frightening to all you…surrendering to a situation that could be imperfect or wrong.
MM: Now, there is a difference, and you are brilliant beings, both mentally, emotionally, spiritually, when you look at someone and there are holes, can I put it that way?, when there are holes in that person’s aura or journey, when they have not reached the place of acceptance of their sweet divinity, of their union with One, then that is an indicator to you that perhaps they are not quite ready for, truly, what sacred union, partnership demands. Now, does that mean that they will never be? No. But does it mean pause, wait, support, observe? I would suggest yes.
But what is occurring right now on your plane, in the new, new 3rd and interdimensional reality, is that the changes that previously, so when I say ‘pause’ I mean ‘pause’, changes that previously took sometimes lifetimes, sometimes eons, sometime decades to heal are healing at the speed of Love. This is the biggest gift of St. Germaine’s healing; it heals at the speed of Love. We say this many times and I steal Einstein’s explanation, because it is healing at the speed of light squared, so literally in one moment your beloved can say, “This is really a hole, this really bugs me, this work has not been done” and in the next moment it is. Now why? Because there is the desire on both your parts, that yearning, it is almost instinctual, that yearning is so powerful that the intention behind it to heal the wounds is almost like what you would think of as a self-fulfilling prophesy.
Now, what is required is the ‘yes’ factor, is the willingness, is the agreement. But there are very, very few and it is fewer every day of what we would call the reluctant or the recalcitrant upon the planet. That is why I have said to you, “Do not give up, do not go to that place of disillusionment, disenchantment” because my beloved friends, you are right there. You can have it all!
SM: Well, that makes me wonder now, I’ve been thinking a lot about my body and whatever changes will be taking place. Will our bodies become lower maintenance?
MM: Yes and no. No, let me clarify…I am teasing you…and that was the other thing that you do not know about me; not only did I have somewhat of a fiery temper, I am an incredible tease and I love to tease and laugh and joke. And so does Yeshi. So, will it require what you have thought of as less maintenance? The answer is yes, because your overall well-being, your health, your physicality is shifting so dramatically with your increase in frequency vibration, crystalline content, etc. Your DNA is already rewired and that is true of all of you who are listening, all of you, it is already done. So now you are activating it, marker by marker. Now, does it take less time? Yes. But let us also suggest that the connection to the body as your temple, you will choose to give it more time, more nurturing, more Love, more attention.
Now, when I have said to thee that one of the things that I learned very early on was the acceptance of beauty and form as gifts from the Mother. This is also what Nova Being, the New You, the Interdimensional you is also remembering. So, will they require more attention, what you think of as maintenance? They will require less. But will you choose to nurture, to luxuriate in appreciation of your body in a whole new meaning of wellness, of fullness, of light? The answer is yes.
SM: Okay, good, I feel that and at the same time, I guess it’s just a slow transition because I’m feeling like I would really love to be fit without really having to focus on exercising. I have so many other things going on right now that I really…that feels like a distraction, almost like eating is a distraction, I don’t even want to eat anymore….anyway…okay…
MM: But what you have need to do, and this is for all of you, speak to your muscles, speak to your skeletal self and say to them, because your body is completely receptive at this point of intersection, simply say, “I want you to be toning, adjusting, firmer, stronger, curvier, thinner”, whatever it is on your list, but strength and tone is very important, “I want you to do that with me regardless of what it is I am doing during the course of the day.” Now I’m not suggesting that you’re asking your muscles to be working and toning and gaining strength during your night sleep; we want you to rest especially because very often you are off doing other work, shall we say, doing work.
MM: And so you often come back tired, so if your muscles are also overexerted during that time, that is not a healthy thing. So, during the waking hours ask your body to be doing what you are wishing to achieve; it is bringing you into closer partnership with your body…the same with food…
MM: Think of the food…many of you do not have any desire to eat…or you have cravings that are unusual, it does not matter which category or which group you are falling into; take a little bit of food, not because it is a rude interruption in your day, but because this is a time, even if it is 15 minutes, to tell your body how much you Love it, how much you treasure it, how much you want to nurture it as your temple. So switch the opinion of food, of food preparation, of gathering food, into ‘this is how I beautify my temple, this is how I nurture my sacred self.’ And what it will also do is influence the choices that you make in terms of what you choose for these celebrations of your temple. So you will not be putting garbage into your body.
MM:…there were times, particularly with children, where they wish to put what is viewed as non-healthy, yes, even in our time, and we would simply transmute it so that it would be, again, the sparkling light being put into our body.
SM: Okay, alright, umm, I actually have one more question and maybe we could do closing comments. Umm, you mentioned ritual, okay, and I’ve been trained in the ways of ritual and I understand what it’s for, I’m just feeling I haven’t used those things so much, it seems to be a more direct thing merely with intention and what I want to do so is ritual now as necessary as it was before?
MM: You are going to want to hit me…(Laughter)…because I am going to answer again yes and no.
MM: Ritual is a gift. Now, ritual has, in some ways, become to be misunderstood in terms of ‘it is the only acceptable way in which to prepare or conduct sacred ceremony’ and that if you don’t do it you don’t get the passing grade, as it were. But ritual is, in fact, a gift; it is the calling forth and the centering of all your energies but all the energies that you wish to join with you. So, for example, going back to the food, if you prepare a beautiful meal, a salad made with everything from the garden and it is fresh and it is delicious and it has every color and then you simply stand at the sink and eat it with your hands. No, you have taken the trouble to gather this precious food so would you not want to put it in one of your beautiful pottery bowls and use clean utensils and sit down with a beautiful napkin and truly enjoy the meal that you have prepared?
That is what ritual is, it is part of the gift and ritual includes the closing rituals of gratitude and thanksgiving for yourself, for what you have brought to the table and what everybody in the seen and unseen kingdom, the plants that you are eating, the Gaia energy that has contributed, the air, the water, the fairies that have danced on the lettuce leaves. So it is the joy. So ritual came to be understood as something has to be done in a ritualized manner, a formed manner, and then it became boring and stultified. But in fact, it is simply part of the joy gift.
SM: Okay, well thank you for that reframe, I really appreciate the new perception and I so appreciate having this conversation and I look forward to having a conversation on the Essenes and have you got any closing comments for today?
MM: Dear hearts, first of all thank you for coming and listening and sharing my space, for allowing me into your hearts, and for you coming into mine. I embrace you, I honor you, I Love you, This is a time of union, of sacred union and partnership. Do not deny, out of fear or old patterns, what your heart desires. Step forth in clear intention and claim what you so rightfully deserve and have always deserved; the mirror, the compliment, the support of Love.
I am with you. Let me be your matchmaker. Go with my Love, sweet angel.
SM: Thank you so much.
SM: Farewell. Lots of Love.
