The Chalice of Love

 

johannes adam simon oertel (1823-1909)

Easter March 27, 2016

The Christ story; The Magdalene story; their story; forever united in unimaginable heartbreak and incredible divine love. We resurrect ourselves through the heart and soul of their story, for it is our story, alive in our hearts.

It doesn’t just happen at Easter. It happens every single day; heartbreak and resurrection. We are constantly resurrecting ourselves from the pains and sorrows of this world.

There are some who have an undeniable, infinite connection with the story of Christ and Mary Magdalene. It is because it is a part of you, as if it all happened today in this lifetime. It is as much a part of you as the breath you breathe.

Not everyone will understand, but those that do have a special bond and those that do carry the story in their hearts and there it shall remain until the day comes when every tear is washed away.

Their story of horror and heartbreak and the true glory of the resurrection is our story for we live the resurrection of our hearts constantly. There is a purpose to it. There is a sacred energy that exists throughout all time and at the very root of it all there is a chalice. It is the chalice of love. The chalice of love is the vessel of truth, the vessel of acceptance and forgiveness; the vessel of the infinite; the vessel of you and the vessel of me.

And through the pain and suffering in our lives we must always come back to the chalice; the chalice of hope and redemption; the chalice of resurrection. This is our hope. This is our truth. This is our story.

Once they walked upon this earth. Once they lived a story for all time. Once they proved that love is infinite and the soul never dies. We are the light bearers who carry the story. Let us not forget and give thanks this Easter day and always.

Fire Goddess

This powerful and symbolic image was sent to me a few days ago. I thought it was so appropriate for the Spring Equinox but I was waiting for permission to post it. Now I see why it was meant for today.

Today we wake to yet another tragic event. Today we are reminded yet again of what human beings are capable of.

As it becomes harder and harder to believe we are going to rise from this time of chaos and violence we grow stronger and more determined to remember who we are.

We are the women warriors. We are warriors of love. We are on fire with the birth of freedom and the devotion to reclaim all that has been lost.

The divine feminine continues to rise in every way imaginable. She will not surrender. She will not be driven under. She will continue to rise on the breath of every woman on the planet. She will create peace moment by moment. She will turn her head from war and injustice and raise her head towards balance and wisdom and sovereignty.

She will continue to rise.

She will breathe the fire of truth.

She will sing the song of remembrance.

She is the mother bestowing her blessing on the land and her people.

She is the living waters of life and the fire rising from the ashes of the past.

She is burning and birthing.

Do not underestimate her power.

We the women are awake.

We the women stand together.

We the women are a circle of power.

Brutality and war can not stop her from rising.

SHE is the ALL

 

This was the Spring Equinox Message I sent out and it is exactly what I would have chosen today.   It is from my book  The Heart of Love : Mary Magdalene Speaks

 The power of the natural balance of the masculine and feminine is a power most mighty and a most sacred healing balm.

All that lies beneath the destruction of this most natural state is beautiful and born of heaven.

How shall the balance be restored?

When the divine feminine connects to the stars and heaven and breathes the remembrance into her physical body on earth, this shall create a power reborn.

When the masculine connects in this way, igniting his own divine feminine and heavenly qualities, he may then acknowledge this sweetness and grace with loving acceptance and one shall see the sweetness in another and another.

In the living sanctuary of your heart, all that has been suppressed, all that has been wounded, all that cries out for love, is now ready to be uncovered and released.

I understand your feeling that the process is never ending but this I am afraid is the process upon the earth.

Your choice to be the shining stars in the face of such anguish illuminates in ways you shall never know.

Allow yourselves to open now in ways you have not allowed for in this allowance fear shall be shattered and love and peace shall reign.

And as you embrace these ancient ways and call out the names of all who adore you, the luminous fibers of your heavenly being shall illuminate and connect with your heavenly home.

Continue to call upon the memory of love.

Hold fast in your desire for truth.

Seek only the truth within.

For there you shall find….your own sacred heart.

 

May love and peace prevail everywhere ….

With Love,

Gail

Goddess Rising

Luděk Marold Allegory with a Woman

I rise
and lift the cloak of darkness
the black shroud meant to keep me
from seeing and remembering
and as I breathe my crown of remembrance
Illuminates and shines
and in my right hand
the spear of hope and strength is lifted
as my feet stand firmly planted on the moon of my intention
Divine Feminine blessings pour out of my mouth
great wisdom and long forgotten truths
stream from my fingertips
and the love that has been lost for so long
pours out of my heart
and showers upon the land and her people
