Love is Everywhere


I posted this image called Mary Magdalene and the Holy Grail on my FB page by Marius Michael George


The next day I took this photograph in my backyard. I have been photographing these Christ Consciousness light emanations for the past few years.

Image may contain: tree and outdoor

To me the similarity is astounding.

Next I was visited by a hawk who came as Messenger to prepare me to be awakened at 4am the next morning to receive an important message.


Mary Magdalene Message

I am here in a myriad of ways. I stand with you and for you. Much is being repeated in your lives and in the world. Your awareness is magnifying the breakdown of the old and through the cracks in the breaking apart, your divine awareness shines the brilliant light of divine evolution.

As you have seen my divine soul signature made manifest, so it is that your own divine soul signature manifests out into the world creating love, balance and healing.

The changes shall continue. The awakening shall shake and wake each and every soul. Your own personal integrity, each and every single thing you do and say is now magnified in ways that are changing everything. The scales continue to tip back and forth and in more and more drastic ways. Therefore that which must fall shall fall and that which must rise shall rise.

Be ever vigilant in loving thoughts and actions for you shall be pushed and prodded to lose patience and to feel overwhelmed. You are divinely supported by the many. You are considered courageous and most beautiful.

We are ever at your side.

These things that have come before, lives, situations, people, places, everything, all add up to one thing, your own divine soul signature rising up. Your divine soul signatures are creating the beautiful colors and vibrations of love and consolation that are moving your world through this time of chaos and upheaval.

Meditate upon this.

Call it into being.

See it and feel it and most of all live it.

I speak now as a form of encouragement for I sense your weariness but also your fortitude and dedication.

All is well and all shall be well.

Love is everywhere.

A Summer Solstice Story


I was asked to read a prayer at our annual Summer Solstice Ceremony on the beach. I have many beautiful prayers written over the years and I am always open to receive a new one if it is meant for a certain time. I have learned that I will be guided to what is to be spoken even down to the last minute. This is what happened for the Solstice. I was guided to read, not a prayer, but a message from Magdalene and right before I left for the ceremony I was guided to a message from Joan of Arc. I realize now these messages are truly divine prayers.

The morning of the ceremony I received a phone call from my childhood friend’s sister asking me if I received something she had sent me and telling me her sister was now in hospice. She told me that her sister had been going through her things and came across something she wanted me to have. I never received it. It was an etching of the name of our friend from the Viet Nam memorial wall and I assume a note to tell me that the end was near.

I made my way to the ceremony feeling upset and unsettled. I prayed and prayed for my friend and her family all through the ceremony. A strong feeling came over me that she would leave today on the glory of the Summer Solstice. I still felt terribly unsettled. Now my name was called and it was time for me to stand and speak the words that were so divinely given. I stood in the Solstice circle. As I spoke these words they vibrated into every cell of my being. I began to feel two things together – peace and strength. I felt the truth and the power in every word. I felt stronger and stronger. I felt them – Magdalene and Joan of Arc and everyone else did too.


I spoke the final word and I heard “Gail look up.”! I looked up and there above me was an enormous circle of birds swirling and swirling. I had never seen anything like it and I felt the power and the love the birds were sending go right through me.


I knew she was home in the arms of the angels.

When I got home my husband told me she passed.

I realized later that I had seen her mother and father and our friend Billy and another friend come for her. The etching she was sending to me was Billy’s.

Godspeed Kathy.

Heaven rejoices at your homecoming.

Your brave and loving mission here is done.


Let the Raging River Flow


I was born remembering. I had a knack for spotting how the masculine was holding down the feminine and how the women just seemed to not know what to do about it. It was like a raging river inside me. As soon as I was old enough I began advising my mother on what to do about my father. I wanted her to, I needed her to, stand up for herself and let him feel what a strong woman is capable of. My mother was strong. My mother was beautiful and compassionate and so loving. She was also very damaged by being raised by a truly horrible mother. There are many reasons that allow a woman to fall into a trap with a man.

It was as if I had some kind of super power in seeing into these men. I could see their beautiful aspects and I could also see their insecurities and how they tried in subtle and not so subtle ways to keep their women down. I could not keep quiet. I talked to the women and I talked to the men. I talked to them about things no one ever talked to them about. Sometimes it was a breakthrough for them but most times it was a breakthrough for the woman.

We had a big group of friends and we all married young. I was nineteen when I got married and I immediately felt like I was suffocating. I began having terrible attacks of pain in my stomach. I felt trapped. I had no idea what to do. This is the life I always wanted and I was miserable. I felt like I was losing my mind. But I was not losing my mind. I was waking up to what I needed to be in a relationship. It shook me to my core.

We were all struggling, all the women. We were living in the patriarchy. We were activating ancient memories and wounds. We acted out. The power that was rising within us could not be stopped. It was necessary. Changes had to be made. We wanted to run but we had babies. We wanted to scream “I can’t breathe”!

I became acutely aware that the men had no idea what their partners needed. They were unconscious. Some of the women were like me, raging with awareness, and some had been put to sleep with a patriarchal anesthetic. I could not stop seeing. I could not stop speaking. I could not stop trying to balance it all, for myself and for them.

Years later I was to be awakened to the truth of why I felt this way so intensely. It was a time when Mary Magdalene was making herself known in many ways to many people. It was a time she came to me and nothing would ever be the same. She awakened me to an even deeper meaning of the necessity of the spiritual balance of the masculine and feminine.

I have not spoken of all I have been feeling about this Inauguration. There is so much anger and hostility everywhere and it has always been my role to bring forth messages of love and hope and spiritual encouragement. But look at where we are. How did we get here?

I am going to speak of something I feel is necessary for us to not only survive but to thrive. This is what has taken me back to my own beginning.

Here is the question that is burning in the hearts of so many women. How was it possible for a woman, any woman, to vote for this man who now holds the office of President of the United States? It is because too many are still asleep from the patriarchal anesthetic and in this unconscious state fears arise and falsehoods seem real. If a woman is used to being treated in a demeaning manner by a man she becomes numb to the fact that it is not only unacceptable but it is altering her inner divine feminine radar.

We must tip the scales until all women break free from this insidious and age old game. I am sighting here this most obvious reason that a woman could step into that booth and vote for a man, that man. It is because they are used to it. It is because it just doesn’t seem so bad.

I am talking here about one reason, but I believe it is a big one, that many women voted this way in this election. As we all found out, a lot of people were not talking about who they were voting for. We found out after, to our great surprise of the many women who voted this way.

I know many people feel this is all some kind of shake up that is ultimately for our highest good and that we should not be speaking negatively and just pray it is all going to be just great. Well everyone must do what they feel. I am just saying here and now – take a look at your life. Take a look at what you have become used to, what you put up with, what does not serve you – what makes you simmer inside but you keep holding it in. I am doing it. We all must do it.

Every broken heart connects to another and another and the energy of hopelessness grows. Open your heart and speak your truth. Speak it to one of your Sisters. Let the raging river flow. Make the change. Our future depends on it.

From my book The Heart of Love : Mary Magdalene Speaks

Each of you are here not by accident but by divine providence.   Each of you have had the stirrings of these things which we will now speak. Male or female the issue at hand is the divine feminine within us all. Do you understand the magnitude of this powerful energy being suppressed? This suppression over the ages has caused energetic eruptions of all kinds. The world as you know it is out of balance. The time is at hand for the feminine to come back into balance, and yes, we must hasten with our awakening to all this means.

The energetic power of women gathering in truth can be likened to breaking the sound barrier, a boom shaking and resonating in every dimension. Powerful divine forces contained in physical bodies, thoughts and emotions and deep inner knowings growing stronger and stronger. May we speak of these things for this is the issue and you hold in your hands the divine prescription of love that will change the world.

Women of the heart drop the sorrow and anger of the past and move sweetly forward for the new day is most assuredly dawning and you have been called to assume your rightful place, a place that is most honored and blessed.

This you know, this you feel, though much has been done to push you into a realm of forgetting. Do not fear, for the forgetting is false and has come to an end. Are you aware of how the sacred feminine has been denied, pushed aside and driven under? Oh yes, for you have lived it many times over and carry the pain and struggle.

As you breathe in the remembrance of who you truly are, you will speak these truths and say no more will I be quiet, no more will I settle for that which does not serve me nor the world nor the universe. I stand in my divinity, tall, beautiful and proud and sing the beautiful song of my birth so that all may hear it’s magnificent vibration and remember.

2017 New Years Visitation


I feel a bit melancholy as I always do at New Years. It is a mix of looking forward to a brand new year filled with hope and possibility and a looking back at all of my life and the loved ones who are no longer here. I have been dreaming lately of my mother and father. I think of them constantly. I always have and I always will.

Every New Years Eve I write down all I wish to release and burn it.

I then write down all I wish to manifest in the New Year. After I did this I came back in the house and called out to my mother and father. They came instantly…. together.

The Second World

IMG_5601 - Version 2

As we continue our deep work within, the veil continues to thin. The veil continues to thin during this time on earth to open our hearts to much much more. To free ourselves from what we think is. For what we think is, is an illusion. And who we think we are is a speck of who we are truly destined to be.

These beautiful emanations of love have come to heal us of our ancient wounds and lift us to a place of peace and unity and comfort, for they are the Comforters.

These emanations resonate with every cell in our bodies and spark a remembrance of truth in our hearts. Gazing upon these colors and shapes is like listening to a beautiful symphony, one so beautiful it makes you weep. It is a symphony of love and truth and remembrance.

This is the next cosmic step.
This is the merging of worlds
Breathe it in.

I have been reminded at this very moment in time of a magnificent event I was blessed to witness. As my best childhood friend was in hospice and her passing was eminent I visited her late one night. I was sure she would pass in a matter of hours. Her words were garbled and she was in and out of consciousness.   However the next morning she was sitting up bright eyed and lucid and wearing lipstick. I was so astounded by this incredible awakening I asked her what had happened. She told me that the angels came last night and that she spoke with them. She asked them to give her more time and this they granted her.  I immediately got my journal and wrote down everything she said as she rose out of a very drugged and weakened state and spoke perfectly eloquently.

Sally’s message:

“The angels were looking at me and said, mind, body, spirit, thought, were to be together these last few days together. It is very possible the angels said, we could be together even though we don’t declare that we want to continue living in the physical form. That’s ok. Every day is anew, there is a penchant for that.

I told the angels I am best with both. I won’t be crazy when death comes. I am best with both…living and going.

The angels were happy, they felt miraculously happy, miraculously happy, that you are happy and free, that I was happy knowing that even every minute counts, that everybody mattered in my life.

I heard you last night Gail. And when I go I will touch hands with Mary Magdalene. And when I go, the spirit world will open up to you and what will be will be and you are going to be sanctified, unbelievable, and everything will be the second world for us. But for now our world is here and that is why we cry. “

May we all open our hearts to the second world for the time is surely at hand.

Mary Magdalene Apostle of the Apostles


Birgitte Fiche and Peter Christiansen


Thoughts on Magdalene’s Feast Day and the tragic event in Orlando.

I started today writing about the decree Pope Francis has made to elevate Mary Magdalene’s Feast Day July 22nd. To me this is not significant because a Pope decided to do this but because it represents a shift in consciousness and it says to me that the divine feminine is truly rising and that we are collectively responsible for this shift.

Unfortunately immediately after writing my thoughts on this I found out about the tragic and heartbreaking event in Orlando. May we continue our divine work as it is needed now more than ever and may we eventually see the fruits of our labor. May love and peace one day soon prevail upon this earth.

Mary Magdalene Apostle of the Apostles 10.06.2016

Vatican City, 10 June 2016 – As expressly wished by the Holy Father, the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments has published a new decree, dated 3 June 2016, Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, by which the celebration of St. Mary Magdalene, currently obligatory memory, will be elevated in the general calendar to the level of a feast day.

Can you feel it? There are signs in the Heavens and signs on the earth. As we have awakened bit by bit, step by step, as we have dedicated ourselves to the feminine divine within and brought her out into the world, each of us in our own special and individual way, all of our effort, all of our love, all of our pain and heartache is being transformed and magnified and has merged into the energetic truth that is changing our world.

The decree made by Pope Francis elevating Mary Magdalene into her rightful place elevates us all. This decree is not only a decree upon paper, it is a decree that has lived in our hearts and our souls for eons. It is our soul’s purpose in coming back in this time and place to birth the Divine Feminine and bring this chaotic world back into balance. This can never happen without the true emergence of the Divine Feminine out of the shadows of repression and into the light of Her radiance and power.

Mary Magdalene is present in the hearts of all women. We are her for she is our story. As we have lived and breathed our own stories and our own truths we have merged with her and with one another bringing forth the emergence and voices of all women throughout all time into the world to be reckoned with, to be acknowledged and yes to be elevated on high.

Feel how this tangible manifestation of the acknowledgement of Her awakens the consciousness of the many. Let us be encouraged rather than discouraged. Let us pronounce that this long and difficult road and the strength and courage with which we have carried ourselves forward, no matter how difficult and unbearable it has been we have continued to revel in our own Feminine Divine. We have heard and felt all who have come before and all who come after. We have answered the call.

The tides now turn towards Heaven. The truth shall not be hidden. The day shall come when the beauty of the Divine Feminine awakens this planet out of it’s dark amnesia. We are here bringing her forth out of the dark and into the light. The time is most surely at hand.

This is a wonderful article by Bairavee Balasubramaniam.

And more evidence here on earth of the emergence and rebalancing of the divine feminine.

The Fortingall Yew standing in a church yard in Perthshire, Scotland is estimated to be 5,000 years old. For as long as people have been recording data on the tree, it was assumed to be male – meaning that it produces pollen instead of berries. Yet, this year three red berries were spotted growing on its branches, which can only mean one thing: at least part of the tree is changing its sex to female.
As I said I was writing this morning about the decree issued by Pope Francis elevating Mary Magdalene’s Feast Day and then I saw the horrific news about the massacre in the club in Orlando. As one energy was rising another was being crucified. This is from my book The Heart of Love Mary Magdalene Speaks ~ Magdalene’s beautiful message on All Divine Unions. I offer it here in acknowledgement of the beauty and the mission of those beautiful souls brutally murdered, their families and loved ones and all who have had to witness such an inhuman act.

I feel this is a counter attack for many of the Gay community celebrate the Divine Feminine within and this is another form of hatred placed upon those who express the truth of who they are. My prayers and tears go out to all who are suffering.


All Divine Unions

The energies are rising. We must merge with these energies, encouraging the masculine to embrace and awaken to their own Christ light and Mary Magdalene within.

How is this done?

Speaking, for gradually the suppression shall be cleared away and the vibrations of the true voice shall be heard and remembered. For those who do not wish to remember, it is their choice but the time is at hand and the opportunity ever present.

Shall you enter the vibration with full understanding, faith and remembrance?

You know in your hearts the truth of the message. You feel in your souls the growing, the urgent call to act upon your deepest feelings. These feelings are the beginnings of remembrance for the forgetting has been strong and many have grown comfortable with only what they see and hear with their earthly senses. We ask you to go beyond this world and as you, the feminine aspect of God, move into the power and truth of your being, you shall create an opening for the masculine to follow.

The time is at hand. Even now some of you are thinking, I have not known this exchange, we speak another language than that of the masculine. And this is truly how it feels but I say to you that I have lived, and I say to you that I have known the extraordinary beauty of a love that transcends all thought and all that is brought forth by the mind. For the soul is the heart of the memory of love and the mind is the anesthetic that leads to the forgetting. For love is where you come from and love is where you shall return.

Begin now to feel this most powerful remembrance. Begin now to vow to open your heart and your soul by quieting the mind and meditating on this sacred symbol so lovingly given. For this is the key to the heart. This is the divine union. This is the new dawning and you are the living prophecy of love.

You are the women come in this time and place to transcend all, to release this infinite power, to use all you have to awaken, your eyes, your ears, your voice and most of all your heart. For I am with you and the silence must come to end. I am speaking now for at this time there are those who have awakened to believe all that is being brought forth. You are among them. You are chosen and you have chosen.

Let us begin to merge our collective energies
Let us step into the power, the beauty, the heart of all there is.

And let it be known and let it be heard that those who have chosen to merge with like kind, woman to woman and man to man have heard and felt the call to be and absorb, to merge and unite with the purest energies of love. You have chosen to expand and accelerate such loving unions. You have chosen to transcend all worldly boundaries. To live in the truth of you heart’s burning desire. We wish you to acknowledge your beauty and to move into the spirit of these most blessed unions. For woman to woman you continue to send out powerful feminine vibrations meant to heal all of humanity and the planet. And man to man you celebrate the feminine aspect of God within yourselves and this aids the world in ways you can not comprehend.

So let us unite in love. Let us acknowledge every aspect of love and let us acknowledge the truth of love. That each loving union is blessed and sacred. Each loving union answers the call. The call to truth, the call to enlightenment and the powerful emergence of the divine within each and every being. All divine partnerships must now come out of the shadows and stand for love. For fear and denial have created the forgetting and the memory of love shall shake these untruths.

We shall rise in love
We shall embrace our power
We shall lead the way
I stand with you and for you
And I say to you, the miraculous begins here and now.

This is the way it is.  You wake up to write something encouraging and it turns into a nightmare.  The dark and the light.  May we find a balance one day and live in the light of love and peace.

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


Birgitte Fiche and Peter Christiansen

 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,








This is The Root of Who You Are

5721667_orig This Is The Root of Who You Are

This is the root of who you are. That is what I heard on the morning of the Blood Moon Eclipse, Holy Saturday, the morning before Easter Sunday. As I heard this many things began to come forward. As if in an instant I became rooted in the knowing that what I was being shown was this simple, undeniable truth.

These words were like the conductor of a huge symphony as all came together to play my own individual and unique arrangement. All in an instant! It is difficult to put this experience into words but this is the closest to trying to explain it.

There has been a theme running through my life from the time I received the vision of Jerusalem and was told of my connection to Mary Magdalene so many years ago. There were so many stages of joy, sorrow, paralyzing fear and anxiety, illness and ultimately gathering the courage to do what I came here to do. The grief of going through memories of the time of Jesus and Magdalene were overwhelming. I was determined to get through it, overcome it, move on.

I thought I did until I went to Brazil to see John of God last August. I spent the entire two weeks crying from the depths of my soul. I had no idea why I was crying. But on the second day there as I walked with my group to the Casa I took quite a fall and my legs were bleeding. It was not until I had spiritual surgery and spent an entire day having visions that I saw and heard the meaning and parallel of that fall. I saw myself fall and I heard “Jesus falls for the third time.” I realized I had fallen twice at home before I got to Brazil and saw that the walk to the Casa was a parallel of the walk to the cross.

In one of the visions after my spiritual surgery I saw a room and as soon as I saw it I knew it had to do with Jesus. I heard myself call out his name in real time. I said “I am looking for Jesus.” After I said this I began to see him through the front of an open grid work with a star on top. I could just make out his staff and a bit of him. I could not bear to see him and that was the end of the vision.

All of these things and so much more came together on the Eclipse Morning and I was shown that I have been trying to overcome this, feeling it is my job on earth at this time to release myself from the grief of that excruciating event, always telling myself that it is about the Resurrection not the death. I want to move into the Resurrection but I was shown too that not only has the death seemed unbearable still in this lifetime but so has the love. The memory of that kind of love is almost too much to bear, to remember, to get too close to. I have kept him at a distance and as in the vision I could not bear to look upon him, still.

I am not at all sure what any of this means. I only know when I am shown something in a way that defies all time and space and you feel in your heart is truth I must pay attention. Perhaps I have been running from it rather than overcoming it. Perhaps I have been listening to my mind rather than my heart and perhaps the truth is there is no overcoming it because This is the root of who I am. After I heard those words this came pouring out of me.

I know there are many of my sisters who understand and are experiencing this too. This is for you. May we accept and honor the root of who we are.


Today I accept the root of who I am

Today I no longer think I can move on

Recover from or process

What I carry in my heart

In my soul

In my body

I am She

Who sees

I am She

Who feels

I am She

Who carries the memories

The Love

And heartbreak

Of the Beloved

I am She

Who has witnessed

The majesty

And the brutality

I am She

Who has Returned

And no matter where I go

Or what I do

This is the root of who I am

I am She who remembers Love

I am She who carries the Flame

The truth bearer

The cosmic messenger

The flowering seed

Of the feminine divine

Rising like a phoenix



The Truth

And from this day forward

I shall run no more


The Higher View of Illness

Happy New Year!

I wish you all a year filled with love, joy, wonderful health, and infinite blessings. As this new year begins I have so much to look back on and so much to be grateful for. I am sharing some of my challenges and amazing experiences here with you. I believe in sharing our stories. I believe that in sharing our stories we connect with one another on deeper levels and we help one another in ways we may never even know. In telling our stories we give them honor and meaning. Whether you write your story or speak your story to even one person it has an effect on you and whoever receives it and I believe even on those that may be across the planet. It has taken me a long time to get this big story out. I hope you find resonance and meaning here.

I have been writing this over the course of several months. I titled it “The Higher View”. One morning before waking as I was turning over, eyes closed still sleeping, I saw a hawk flying over me from right to left, the same direction I was turning. The hawk was so close it was literally only about a foot above me. It seemed to wake me so that I could consciously watch and look closely at him. I had the impression that this was a male. I could see every aspect of him. I could even see his wings vibrating softly as he flew. It was so amazing because he was flying over me in resonance and time with my turning over.

As he flew over me slowly as I turned and he was just about to fly out of my vision I could see he was holding some prey in his mouth. The amazing thing about this is that I woke in the middle and consciously knew this was something extraordinary and important and focused as hard as I could on watching him. If this were a dream he would have disappeared as soon as I woke up. He did not. I saw every minute detail of him, he was that close.

Then I began to see what I have seen many times in the morning as I am waking with my eyes still closed. I see rows and rows across my entire field of vision of small circles of light. The rows are sometimes on the diagonal and sometimes straight up and down. I always thought that perhaps this was a dimension I was just coming out of and would see it upon beginning to wake but this morning after seeing the hawk I felt sure that this is a code. Since seeing the hawk the patterns have changed and become more intricate.

I find this up close visit amazing as the hawk is all about seeing the higher view and that is what I was writing about. On top of that a woman in France had just begun posting pictures of St Therese of Lisieux wearing her Joan of Arc costume. St Therese was devoted to Joan of Arc and would write and perform in plays dressed as her. She also posted a quote of Therese saying “Most of all I imitate the behavior of Mary Magdalene, for her amazing – or, rather, loving – audacity which delighted the heart of Jesus, has cast it’s spell upon mine.”


St Therese of Lisieux

I mention this because of the synchronicity of all this for me. During the time when I was receiving communication from Mary Magdalene I began communicating with St. Therese. She is the one who encouraged me to always look at the higher view.

For me, it has always been Magdalene, St Therese and Joan of Arc. Joan of Arc came in around that time too in many ways but did not communicate in words until years later. These three incredible women are intimately connected with each other and with us. In these times of great chaos and transformation it is essential to have a connection with the beloveds who are in constant communication with us if only we will see.

Joan of Arc

Joan of Arc

What does this all mean? I continue to follow the breadcrumbs and now after many encounters with the hawk, this one being the most incredible of all, I know I am being asked to consider an even higher view than ever before. What follows are my thoughts and inspirations on the higher view of illness and particularly those experiencing illness and spiritual revelation side by side. This is what I was writing about when the hawk appeared and St.Therese, Magdalene and Joan of Arc kept appearing in my newsfeed on Facebook.

Mary Magdalene


In these days of great evolution and revolution I find myself in two worlds and perhaps that is just the way it is meant to be. My soul, the spirit I have been since the beginning calls to me day and night, sometimes in a gentle whisper and sometimes with a strength so powerful it almost knocks me down.

In the midst of this spiritual calling I live in this body in this world. As the physical body also calls out day and night clamoring for my attention I am constantly living in an exaggerated dual existence, or so it seems.

The more I travel my path upon this earthly plane the less I seem to truly know, for what do we really know for sure, for nothing is what it seems. For sure most these days find this dense physical existence a challenge as our spirits continue to call us higher and higher. It is a calling that cannot be denied. It is our soul truth, our divine birthright, our one true knowing. It is the antidote to all untruths; this I do know for sure.

There is a particular challenge when the body is not in resonance with this earth plane. Perhaps the remembrance and yearning for that original higher state of being is the cause of such imbalance. Perhaps the soul has taken this journey in this life upon itself as a soul contract.

What does it mean when an illness goes hand in hand with a spiritual awakening ? What does it mean when so many lightworkers suffer from long term physical illness? It is a multidimensional question with a multidimensional answer.

During our stay on this planet and through our experience with the body and the soul we do receive moments of insight and glimpses of what lies beyond the veil. I have seen many of these but they are only a tiny bit of the layers upon layers of what makes up the circumstances of our lives.

Illness and the ascension of the soul happening simultaneously is a very particular state of being. I believe there are elements that exist within the limits and confines of the illness that are grounding forces. By that I mean that many of us have the tendency to exist in the higher realms and the illness itself keeps us grounded to the earth. In the enormous spectrum of what makes up each individuals situation, in my own experience I feel this is part of why the illness may be present.

There is also the aspect of being forced to live a more quiet secluded life. There can be times of great silence where all you can hear and feel are the pains and frustrations of your physical condition. It seems you feel and hear nothing from spirit and that is when you may slip into the underworld. This can feel like an eternity. You call out and pray and are taken to what feels like the most desolate and desperate place.

When you wake each day perhaps after years of coping with such a challenge and you rise yet again to a new day the vibration of strength and fortitude and overcoming radiates out across the planet and this I do know for sure.

Within the day in day out moment to moment reality of living with this heaviness upon the body and the soul ascending there is a constant balancing act, when done with love, gratitude and grace this sends out a vibration of balance.

When you are thankful for every small thing you do have, when nothing has gone the way you thought it should this sends out the vibration of gratitude. When you overcome time and again fear, loneliness and desperation that this challenge brings, you send out a vibration of courage and strength and somewhere this radiates out to someone in need of just that at that particular moment.

I do know these things for sure for once I was blessed to see the higher view during the final stages of my dear friend’s illness. As she lay in her hospital bed unable to walk she was filled with grace and gratitude. She traversed her entire long and painful journey with cancer in this way.

I called her as I did each day and on this particular day she said “Oh Gail it is so terrible I am watching what is happening to the people in Hurricane Katrina on T.V”. I said “Oh no turn it off, don’t watch that.” I thought my God with all she is going through she should not put herself through watching something so terribly upsetting. Suddenly I see a vision before my eyes. I see an entire family stranded on the roof of a house as the waters rise and then I see something like an energetic thread going from my friend Sally to them and I am shown something I will never forget as long as I live.

I saw that the grace and gratitude and hope that Sally was emanating even though she was unable to get up out of that bed and walk was sustaining those people on that roof. Sally could have been filled with fear and hopelessness as they must have been, feeling trapped on the roof with the waters rising and no help in sight. Through her faith and her grace she sent out a loving vibration and filled that family with the strength and courage they needed to survive. I saw it with my eyes. I felt it in my heart. It was one of the greatest blessings of my entire life and I was able to share it with her at that very moment. I remember how when I told her she was covered in chills and I was too. I was able to tell her the higher view of what she was doing. We could feel as the energy moved through us both that this was true. Can you imagine if we could always see the effects we are having at a higher level?

At a deeper level and considering the state of affairs around the world perhaps those of us suffering effects on our physical bodies are in some way mitigating and transforming the kinds of bacteria and viruses that are now becoming life threatening on the planet.

Think of how challenging it is at this time for even healthy people to keep a positive attitude and stay focused on the higher view. For those of us who wake each day coping with great physical challenges the task is much more difficult. It feels as if each moment of every day we must practice the art of ascension.

I have written before about the attitudes in the spiritual community concerning illness. I have experienced them first hand as many have. I believe those attitudes are a part of the old paradigm. There are of course magnificent healers who have the ability to see in a higher multidimensional way with open minds and hearts. They are constantly evolving out of the old paradigms because they themselves are ascending into higher places of understanding. I am ever thankful to have such an evolved healing soul in my life.

This is a multilayered, multidimensional complicated issue. There are also outer forces that can and do play a part in hoping to derail and confuse people who do have their hearts and souls on the higher view. I have been shown some of this pertaining to my own situation.

Of course there are traumas from this life and lives past that cause physical illness. I sometimes wonder too if perhaps much more is expected of those of us awake and aware and any anger, bitterness or inability to forgive disturbs that delicate balance of health and well being.

What does it all mean? Perhaps when our time here has ended and we pass over we will know the answers. For now we have only questions and the job of forging ahead as we continue to participate in our healing, keeping our hearts and souls on the higher view.

The hawk came with a message. Look up. Wake up. All is not what it seems. I have continued to see the patterns of light upon waking. Now that I have been given the understanding that this is a code perhaps I will begin to understand more.

I am continuing to process my trip to see John of God. It was such an intimate experience I was not able to write about it. My challenge with my physical health continues, however after being home for a while some amazing things began to happen. I have a story to tell. I am in the process of still receiving information and writing about it.

I do know that it is important that I write and speak about this subject of illness and transformation and that is one of the many, many reasons I continue on this journey. I know there are so many of you traveling this path. Know that you are not alone even though this is such a lonely journey. We are being aided and guided. There is a purpose for every single thing we experience. We are warriors. We are transmuting huge energies. Our lives have great meaning here and in the higher realms. You are loved and appreciated by magnificent beings of light. There are reasons we are in the quiet, in seclusion. Listen carefully, there are divine messages meant for you everywhere.

I bow to you. I send you my love and appreciation. Thank you for all you do. I know the struggle and heartache and I know the joy and rapture of the divine. It is a metaphor for this earth existence and our connection with heaven.

This particular situation is my particular journey however every one of us is coping with something in our lives that we must rise above. This is our spiritual journey here on earth. It is not easy but we are here living these lives in these bodies. At the same time we are being guided and adored and are constantly being showered with everything we need.

I once saw a great shower of light raining down on Jesus and Mary Magdalene. They were aware of it. They knew what was happening and what the heavenly light was providing them. It was their saving grace and it is ours.

Know that what you do is seen and noted. It is recorded in The Book of Love. We must remember that we are not alone. Faith through the most difficult circumstances creates a power that can change the world. Love for yourself and for all brings peace and harmony to a world that has forgotten that love is all there is. Laughter is the greatest healer of all. It is the language of the angels. We know all these things. We just have to keep remembering. As we continue to make raising our consciousness the top priority though all these trials and challenges we help to raise the consciousness of all.

I have been guided to speak of these things and so I follow the guidance. We may not know the reason we are guided to do or say something but there are always reasons beyond our knowing. There is always the higher view.

May we all continue on this incredible journey with love and faith and accept the help and guidance that comes our way in whatever form. May we continue to express our true selves so that we may help the earth and one another as we continue to move through our fascinating, challenging and complicated lives on earth.

As I was trying to finish writing this I did begin to write my story that began with my trip to John of God in Brazil. It is a long story but I feel it is an important one. It is personal and global. A link to my blog follows below.

911 and the Crystal Stars of Love and Hope

This is a story of how the divine feminine is awakening and emerging as never before. This is the story of how the divine feminine works. This is the beauty of three sisters divine finding each other and finding truth. A trinity flowing like water, weaving a story meant to be told, loving and supporting each other through the unveiling of our own hearts and souls. We are the living waters bringing love and truth back to a land parched and dry with untruths. The divine feminine is rising and there is no stopping her.


Much Love,



911 and the Crystal Stars of Love and Hope

This is a story of how the divine feminine is awakening and emerging as never before. This is the story of how the divine feminine works. This is the beauty of three sisters divine finding each other and finding truth. A trinity flowing like water, weaving a story meant to be told, loving and supporting each other through the unveiling of our own hearts and souls. We are the living waters bringing love and truth back to a land parched and dry with untruths. The divine feminine is rising and there is no stopping her.

The Beginning

I wake again at 5 am slightly anxious with the pieces of this story swirling in my head. It matters not that this is the day before Thanksgiving and I have much to do to prepare for dinner tomorrow or that a migraine came to call right before bed last night. I have to get up. The story won’t wait. Perhaps it is fitting that it beckons to be told the morning before Thanksgiving.

The story seems so long and complicated now that I have not been able to settle it in my mind. Beyond that it has been a process just trying to absorb all that has happened. This story that has woven it’s way into my heart and my life began one day when I was meditating in bed. Suddenly a powerful wind was blown into my mouth, so powerful that I was gasping and my arms were flying up off the bed over and over with each gasp. As this was happening I began to see before my eyes a vision of Jerusalem back at the time of Christ. I was told of a connection between Mary Magdalene and me. When it was over I sat up and said out loud “They gave me the breath of The Holy Spirit.” This event completely changed my life.

I went on to receive messages from Magdalene, St. Therese of Lisieux, Joan of Arc, Archangel Michael and others. The Magdalene messages were put into book form The Heart of Love : Mary Magdalene Speaks. Powerful healing meditations and activations began to emerge that have been helpful to others who find themselves remembering a connection to Magdalene and Jesus.

During all of the otherworldly experiences I continued to have I was living with a very debilitating illness. At some point it became much more manageable and I was able to present workshops and share the beauty and power of it all with others. It has been an amazing experience.

It became commonplace for people to come to the workshops or to read the book and to tell me of their feelings that they themselves had visions or memories of having been at the crucifixion. My own family had begun having these experiences soon after I had the Magdalene vision. There was something huge going on and it was growing. My family and I went through a long and confusing process of trying to understand the magnitude of what this all meant and how deeply it was affecting us. We went through what I would describe as a traumatic grieving process.

Over the years I felt I had dealt with the grief, and the huge experiences that I was having for so long seemed to calm down. Then several years ago I began to feel the old physical symptoms returning. Slowly I found myself once again forced into seclusion. I tried to push through it and continue to make appearances because I felt it was so important to get this beautiful divine healing out there. It became impossible. I had to surrender once again and release back into the underworld. I was not happy about it. I knew the territory. I had been here before. It is dark and lonely and frightening. I also thankfully knew that I was not alone and that everything has a divine purpose.

I seemed to be in a dry period with not much going on in the esoteric department. I thought perhaps my spiritual job was done. I became a grandmother and this filled me with such joy. I was so grateful to have these amazing beings in my life, delivered to my door when I was not well enough to even leave the house. This was more than enough. I felt my spiritual purpose now was family life and showering my time and my love on my beautiful grandchildren. However in the back of my mind there was a whisper. “I wonder if this is part two?” I could not help to be reminded that all the magic appeared in my life out of the blue when I had been taken out of my busy life by the illness before. I pushed the whispers aside and I went tumbling down into a dark, dark place. I was coping with months on end of severe illness, day after day with no relief. I felt completely desperate.


I am holding on


I am praying for a miracle


I am falling

into the well of despair

this is a terrible and lonely battle

only the strongest survive

I am weak in body

weakened by life after life

of brutality

meant to crush my spirit

and steal my power

I carry the wounds of the feminine

deep within my physical body

I have returned

to transcend the physical

I am a warrior of the light

my spirit is rising

out of the well of despair

I remember

the divine feminine alchemy

that shall turn the shadows

of this dark cold hard metal

into the light

of miraculous gold


I am falling



show me a way

out of this dark hell

and into the light of a miracle

I know too much

and not enough

the truth of my lives

line up before me

swirling in visions, dreams

and synchronicities

an esoteric mystery

unsolvable by earthly means

I am weary

and so I pray

for some kind of miracle

for the answer lies beyond all this

this I know for sure

and in the dark of night

between despair and hope

my cries and prayers are heard

and the miracle appears


I cried myself to sleep every night and prayed for an answer. This felt too much to cope with. And then the answer came. I must travel to Brazil to see the trans medium healer John of God. This seemed impossible both physically and financially but it was meant to be. I had to overcome many fears and obstacles to get myself there but I kept following the knowing that this was exactly what I must do.

John of God

We arrive, my son-in-law Garrett and me. We have been through much together over the years. He too has been through the visions, the memories, the grief. He has seen much and he too is dealing with a long and difficult illness. We have come to heal our bodies and our spirit. We are ready, or so we think. Nothing could have prepared us for our experience in Brazil. We stepped into a personal inner journey of enormous magnitude.

The first day we walked the few blocks from our hotel to the Casa. This is the building where thousands of people come from all over the world carrying within their hearts the hope and prayer for healing.


As we entered the Casa I was overcome with emotion. I kept hearing over and over within “This is a holy place.” As soon as I walked outside I realized that this feeling was the same feeling and reaction that I had when I entered the Shrine of Archangel Michael in Florida not far from where I live. The shrine was a beautiful and meaningful find during the whole Magdalene experience. I sat there feeling that these two holy places were somehow connected. After visiting the Casa and the beautiful meditation grounds we sat down to a delicious meal. I could not believe what it all felt like. I turned to Garrett and I said “Doesn’t it feel like we are in heaven?” and he said “Yes”.

The next day was orientation and once again we made our way down the street to the Casa with our group and our guide. As we were walking I tripped and fell. Everyone was rather alarmed. Garrett helped me up and I seemed to be okay except for the cuts that were bleeding on both of my legs.  I tried to stop the bleeding with some tissues and on we went to the orientation. As soon as we got back to the hotel I cleaned the cuts and applied an antibiotic ointment.

The next morning we were off to the Casa again to meet John of God for the first time. There was hours of sitting with hundreds and hundreds of people standing and sitting everywhere. The energy was incredible in this holy place. Tears streamed down my face. When our turn came to get in line we made our way through what is called the current room. This is where people are sitting meditating holding the energy. There are pictures all over the walls of saints and entities as they are called who help and incorporate into John of God’s body to facilitate healing. The pictures alone made me weep. We are told to hold the intention of what it is we came here for. I am asking to heal the root of this illness and help in fulfilling my spiritual mission.

As we slowly made our way nearer to John of God the energy kept building and so did the emotion. By the time I was only about five people from him I was trying hard not to sob uncontrollably. My heart felt as if it is was expanding and expanding. Diego is John of God’s right hand man and was the one who gave the orientation. He was standing beside John of God as I approached. Our eyes met and he gave me the most beautiful knowing smile as he could see and feel what I was experiencing. Meeting John of God was quick and powerful. He said in Portuguese “operation tomorrow”. I would be having a spiritual etheric surgery that has the same effect as a physical surgery.

I am led into a room for a healing prayer. This whole event is so extremely emotional. The prayer feels like the most beautiful prayer you have ever heard. Then you go outside where there are rows of tables and you sit to eat the blessed soup that is prepared with love each day. People are talking to me and I am having the most difficult time not becoming hysterical. I can not stop crying as I sit eating my soup. When I finish my soup I get up and walk over to the meditation deck. I feel like I am in a dream. I look out over the beautiful view and a hawk flies above me.


In the afternoon we return to the Casa to sit in the current room. This is where much healing takes place. Extraordinary things happen in the current room. You may see and feel the beings that are helping you. You may see scenes form your life, events from the past or visions of the future. It has been so intense from the moment we arrived here.

The next day is my surgery. As I make way through the Casa and into the current room I see Garrett sitting among all the people holding the energy. Once again I am completely overwhelmed with emotion. The love I have for him expands and expands as I realize he is helping to hold the energy for my spiritual surgery. There is something happening here that has happened before. My connection to him throughout time and space is magnified. My heart is just bursting with love for him and I see our connection in Jerusalem at the time of Christ and Magdalene and I know for sure this is why we are here.

The people who are here for this surgery are now all seated in the last room. I notice the pictures of King Solomon and Jesus as I sit there. A woman said “Close your eyes.” She begins speaking with a beautiful accent. Her words sound like the most beautiful words I have ever heard. Then a man speaks in another language. It feels as if I can understand every word. We are all holding our hands over our heart. After a while a booming voice comes into the room. It is John of God saying the healing is done. His voice went through me like a bolt of electricity and I shuddered and shook.

The protocol is that you must go back to your room after surgery for 24 hours and keep your eyes closed. Back in my room I climbed into bed and put my eye mask on. Immediately the visions began. I saw so much but afterwards I could only remember a few of the visions. I heard and saw the doctors that were working on me. I felt them touching me. I saw showers of healing light reigning down upon me but the main thing that I saw and remembered was a room that I saw vividly. It was from a long time ago. When I saw it I felt this room had to do with Jesus and I heard myself say out loud. “I am looking for Jesus.” As I said that another room appeared. This room had an outer wall that was made of a type of see through grid work with a star on it. I could see through it to the outside. I see someone slowly walking by. I see his staff. I know it is Jesus but as I realize it is him it all disappears.

Garrett had surgery soon after I did. The next day after our 24 hours in our rooms Garrett knocked on my door. As soon as I see him I say “Garrett did you see Jesus?” He said yes and begins to tell me what he saw. As he starts to tell me I gasp as I see myself falling on the sidewalk as I did on the way to the Casa and I hear “Jesus falls for the third time.” I remember that twice before I came to Brazil I fell. We have both had incredible experiences after our surgeries. Garrett and I had not talked about it before but now we say to each other that we had both asked to be healed from witnessing the crucifixion.

From the time I set foot in the Casa and for the entire two weeks that I was there I cried and cried and cried. I cried from the depths of my soul. I cried as if I was grieving the most terrible loss but I had no idea what I was crying about. As I was engulfed in this grief I also felt the most excruciating loneliness. I had asked to heal the root of my illness and all I was shown the whole time I was there was that I was carrying this terrible grief. I was shown that as I fell I was in some way reliving and reenacting Jesus falling on the way to the cross. More was revealed in the following days.

This too was significant. Soon after I wrote The Heart of Love, Lars Muhl sent me a copy of The O Manuscript. He had read my book and said “We must be talking to the same angels.” When I opened the wrapping and saw the cover of the book with this picture on it I felt like I was going to collapse.


I had never seen this picture in my life but I had such a reaction to seeing it. As I went on to read the book it was an incredible experience for me. When I knew I must come to Brazil I looked up information about the Casa and John of God and I saw that this picture was on the wall inside the Casa.


Even to this point I had never seen this picture anywhere except on Lars’ book. It is said to be a channeled portrait of Mary Magdalene that was painted by monks long ago. This was the sign that yes, definitely I must go to Brazil. I sat in front of that picture in the Casa for hours and hours. There was an energy emanating from it that was so powerful.



Part Two

Following is the link to a blog I wrote as this was all developing. In order to follow the story please read my blog before continuing here.

I must add an interesting note. In Lars Muhl’s book The O manuscript he says that the Queen of Sheba was one of Mary Magdalene’s incarnations. This would explain why I was so drawn to the King Solomon image at the Casa and I believe how he has been sending these clues and inspirations since I came home. This is the key to the connection of Solomon’s Temple and 911.

Hillary Raimo sends me a message. The Dr. Emoto water crystal photo has arrived. One of the amazing things that occurred during all of this was that Hillary felt the water should be photographed by Dr. Emoto’s lab and that this was the last water sample photographed before he passed. Hillary sent me the photo in an instant message. I gasped when I saw it.


Please read Hillary’s blog here about how Love Breathe for Earth came to be and her amazing story leading up to the water crystal photograph.

My deepest and heartfelt thanks to Hillary for always following her heart and the divine breadcrumbs. She is a warrior Goddess speaking her truth. I am thankful for our connection and our ongoing divine sister synchs. Hillary is the founder of Love Breathe for Earth and has a fabulous radio show. She offers her unique gifts in many ways.

When I saw the water crystal photograph I said out loud “This is the Star of Hope rising out of the smoke and devastation of 911.” And as I continued to look at this image I started burning up. I felt like I was on fire. I said “This photograph of this 911 water crystal has healing properties.” As soon as I spoke those words I saw this beautiful fuchsia pink before my eyes. I said “Thank you” to whoever was showing me this beautiful confirmation and when I said thank you the fuchsia pink grew larger.

Hillary and I both noticed that there was a Five pointed star right next to the Six pointed star. I was unsure at that moment what it all meant. This seemed to be enough for one day.

The next morning as soon as I woke up I went to my computer to look at the crystal again. This time as soon as I looked at it something hit me hard and I said out loud “911 has to do with the crucifixion.” I have no idea what made me say it but I knew it was true. I messaged Hillary and asked her if Mark Gray ever connected the crucifixion to 911. Mark Gray has a website and has a page on Facebook. He uses numerical codes and Gematria to decode world events and has done a tremendous amount of investigation into the 911 event and the 911 Memorial site.

(as I am writing this about 911 Prince William and Kate are visiting the 911 Memorial)

Hillary said she did not know but I should ask Mark. I messaged Mark right then and asked “Do you feel there is a connection between 911 and the crucifixion”? Mark immediately answered “Definitely.” I felt like I might faint. There it is. What are the chances? How did I feel this so strongly when looking at the image of the water crystal? What can this all mean? I knew deep down that the same energies that carried out the crucifixion carried out the 911 event and I knew that my connection to both these horrific events had great significance.

Once I had seen the water crystal I began to receive a healing meditation/activation to help to clear trauma through the power of the 911 water crystal but the Five pointed star kept showing itself to me and I did not know what the meaning was. As the divine always works in such synchronistic ways someone added my name to a private Facebook page Magdalene/Isis Mystery School. I looked at the page and there was the Five pointed star!

Tara Faulkner is an astrologer who began to see this Five pointed star in the astrological charts of people who have a connection to Magdalene. Now it started coming together as Tara and I talked for hours and merged our stories. I want to also thank Tara for following her soul’s guidance and creating the Magdalen/Isis Mystery School which has brought together a family of souls from across the globe. Tara sent me this image of Southern France where all the Magdalene sacred sites are – and there is the six pointed star and the five pointed star.

 My Five Pointed Star Chart

Gail Swanson

To me the Six pointed star is the star of Christ and the Five pointed star is the star of Magdalene and they rise together, they resurrect together out of the chaos, devastation and hopelessness. She is the Star of Love. He is the Star of Hope. Together they are divine union. They come to us now through the image of water.

William Henry said in his book Mary Magdalene : The Illuminator

In Grail vernacular Mary Magdalene is the ultimate ‘fisher person’ she is 153 ‘the Tower’. Magdala means ‘Fish Tower’ meaning the priestess who presided over the well or fountain of life.


This unusual image from c. 1250 is displayed in a regional history museum in Metz, a town  in Alsace-Lorraine, France, which was once the seat of power for Merovingian kings.  Ancient legends come together in this painting from the seat of the Merovingian power in Alsace-Lorraine. It appears to be an ancestral portrait of the Lord and Lady of  Pisces (the Age of the “Fishes”).

This is a drawing taken from a photo of the wall painting. The circle and the square represent the “union of irreconcilable opposities”–an ancient symbol for the “sacred marriage.”

A recent discovery of a mosaic depicting two fish at a 3-4th century church in Megiddo confirms that the “partnership” of the Fishes was an early emblem of Christianity. The mandala is reminiscent of the Zodiac symbol of Pisces, the “Fishes”–the New Age dawning at the time of Jesus. The linking of the geometric square and circle depicts the “marriage of irreconcilable opposites” in geometry, the square represents Earth/matter and the circle, Heaven/spirit. ~

Together, Jesus and Mary were perceived by the earliest Christian believers as Lord and Lady of the Age of the Fishes. ~ Margaret Starbird

WINDOWATDERVAIGMULL2Notice the twin towers in this image of Magdalene and Jesus

Mary Magdalene/Twin Towers by Margaret Starbird

“For me, the symbolism of the twin towers is a powerful image that has a history intimately linked to Mary Magdalene. I was reminded of this when I noticed the flag of the Army Corps of Engineers flying at the scene of the attack on the Pentagon. The banner is a white castle with twin towers on a red background. But the castle (citadel–the city of God, fortress, stronghold) is, for me, a reminder of the magdal- eder–the tower (stronghold) of the flock from the prophetic passage in the Hebrew Bible –Micah 4:8-10. Since Magdala means tower in Hebrew, this passage is powerfully prophetic of the role of Mary Magdalene as the daughter of Sion in her role as Bride. You might want to look up this passage in the Hebrew Bible if you aren’t already familiar with it, to examine its very strong connections to Mary Magdalene who is alleged to have been sent into exile–to dwell in the fields–after the death of her King. This passage foreshadows the Diaspora of the Jewish people of whom Magdalene is the archetypal representative in her role as Bride of the Christ.

Mary Magdalene, for me, represents the flesh and blood of humanity, the entire human community, as the sacred container of the life and light of divinity–the very embodiment or incarnation of Godde with us. She represents the both the fallen Sophia (feminine consciousness) and the Holy City (as symbol of the human family) arrayed for her nuptials with the eternal bridegroom (Revelation 21). The sacred union of Christ and Magdalene which, I believe, was always at the heart of the Christian story, is only a model for this much deeper partnership of God and man/woman–

The castle (cit a d el) emblem originally represented the city of Jerusalem–her walls, gate, ramparts and twin towers. In Medieval art, the walls of Jerusalem often appear this way, and the emblem of the twin towers found on the Corps of Engineers banner was derived from this medieval emblem representing the walls and watchtowers of the Holy City. This emblem of the twin towers occurs very early among the medieval watermarks, which date from 1280. These watermarks are imbedded in the paper that was manufactured by those who opposed the repressive Roman Catholic Church (and its Inquisition, formed in 1237).

The World Trade Center was a chosen target of the terrorists because it was a high-profile symbol of capitalism and the global business network–a landmark representing global cooperation. It was a secular temple rather than a religious one. This attack was not a synchronicity. If an earthquake had destroyed the WTO on 9-11 it would have been a synchronicity–but under these circumstances, it was not; it was a deliberate act on the part of fanatics with free will who chose this civilian target to maximize suffering and outrage. It was an attack on civilization and humanity, especially obvious since people from about 80 nations were killed in the attack.

Over 13,000 Watermarks have been detected in antique Bibles and other medieval texts….unicorns, mermaids, bugles and towers are just a few of the emblems used by the heretics to hide tenets of their faith in the actual leaves of their bibles. (A discussion of some of the relevant watermarks and interesting examples appear in my Alabaster Jar and Tarot Trumps books–many of you have seen them).

Since the castle emblem was connected with the metaphor of the Holy City as community/Bride, it is also connected with Mary Magdalene–the sacred feminine–and therefore, also an emblem of PEOPLE as community. In the passage from Micah 4, the Magdal-eder is a metaphor for the city and people of Sion/Jerusalem.

The Pentagon was a target for obvious reasons. The five pointed star is sacred to Mars, but also to Venus, and therefore to Magdalene as Goddess of Love. The number 5 (the pentad) in the ancient world represented health and well-being/humanity (the 5 senses, the five extremities, five fingers/toes on each limb). Of course, for the terrorists, it was a symbol of America’s military power. In a stroke of luck, the plane struck an area where many offices were vacant because of renovations being made to the building–saving perhaps as many as 500-800 lives.

I have been brought to tears as I witnessed TV images of people of ALL faiths gathering to pray for unity, guidance and healing, courage and love in the wake of the outrageous attacks. I was shown very early in my spiritual journey that Mary Magdalene herself was a ‘carrier’ of the protoype of the Grail found in Genesis 44–the cup found in the sack of Benjamin that was the catalyst for the healing of the relationship of the twelve sons of Jacob–the healing of the nations. May she now be the instrument of this healing of the nations as we recognize in our common humanity the sacred vessel of divinity. It is not churches and temples of various religions that are sacred containers–it is PEOPLE!

The pictures we are seeing on TV, the sad stories we are hearing, are bringing home the message: we, the human family, are one child of the planet Earth. And our common enemy is characterized as 666–the number in the ancient symbolic system that represents the the solar or power principle–power without mercy. This fire principle without its sacred feminine (lunar or water) partner, results in conflagration and holocaust. Many of you have read my Goddess in the Gospels and have understood the gematria/numbers and the true meaning of the 666–power (violence) with no mercy: the power of the dictator, the terrorist, the crocodile–the Beast. It is the rise of the feminine eros –relationship, inclusion, tolerance, nurturing and concern for children–that rises now to offset the solar 666, to mitigate and finally to contain and heal it.

This sacred feminine (which I identify with the Magdalene-Spirit) is deeply involved in healing and saving the planet and all her peoples and is intimately connected with eco-feminism, the health and well-being of the physical body and other feminist issues that surface as we learn to celebrate humanity as the sacred container of divinity.” Margaret Starbird

I believe that the energies that carried out the crucifixion are still operating in this world. Those same energies were responsible for 911 and other horrific acts. 911 was the crucifixion of humanity. It was meant to devastate us, to paralyze us with fear and hopelessness. It was also, or so they thought, a way into those of us who carry the codes of Magdalene and Christ – to break our hearts again – to destroy the Twin Towers, the symbol of The Magdalene and The Christ. However in the aftermath of the devastation, our hearts were broken, yes, broken open. Love and compassion were magnified on earth. Many had psychic openings during this time therefore the intent to shut us down blew us wide open.

I feel that this has been brought to our attention at this time because all dark secrets are coming to light. We are at a crucial turning point. The more we are made aware of – the more we remember – the more we connect with one another – the higher we rise – the sooner the dark agenda will fall.

As we follow our hearts, in spite of the lies and deceit and programming we awaken the dormant knowledge that we possess.

The 911 Water Crystal is the symbol of Love and Hope Rising.

It is the Resurrection of our hearts.

It is the tangible manifestation of loving intent prayed upon the living waters of life.

It is the phoenix rising.

It is the divine union within ourselves.

We are the Resurrection.

We are the living waters of Christ and Magdalene baptized in the waters of love and divine union.

We are the living waters of the new earth rising.

She rises as the Divine Feminine is rising out of the smoke and murder of the dream meant to hide and destroy her.

There is so much more to this story. I am just opening the door a bit to this particular part of the story as we walk through the doorway of truth and transformation together.

I want to add a personal reflection here. When I had the first vision of Jerusalem and began receiving messages from Mary Magdalene and others I was filled with anxiety and fear. I knew that no matter what, I had to follow this divine unfolding and do whatever was being asked of me. This meant coming out – coming out and telling my story – coming out and telling Mary Magdalene’s story. I was terrified. The anxiety was paralyzing.

After a while after the book came out and as I continued on speaking, creating workshops and sharing the divine downloads of healing meditations and activations the anxiety left me. All of us doing this work are coping with many lives of being tortured and killed for speaking our truth. The fear is enormous. Once we release what we are meant to do in this life we attain more peace within. Those energies don’t hold and bind us anymore. Once all truths are revealed perhaps we will will not have to carry the story in our physical  and emotional bodies.

I have been calling what has been going on since I visited the Casa of John of God in Brazil, Part Two. There is something about this that feels the same as it did in the beginning of this fantastic journey and the anxiety has returned after years and years.

When you receive this kind of information the mind tries to talk you out of it. Who will even relate to this? Is it just me? But I have been here before and I know again I must speak whether I understand it all or not. I kept wondering how and where I would tell this story and that is when the Magdalene/Isis Mystery School came along. I remember that I felt this way about The Heart of Love, that only certain people would relate to it but that turned out to be untrue. People from all walks of life found the book and fell in love with it.

And as the divine always steps in just when you are needing it most – someone sent me this incredible talk by Sara Beak. I cannot begin to describe how I related to her from the moment she started. I cried through the entire thing. You will too. She describes in the most incredible way the journey of the divine feminine as she struggles to emerge and speak her truth. It is our story.

Please take the time to watch it.

From The Heart of Love : Mary Magdalene Speaks

The women are gathering, yes, and the power will be restored when the feminine takes her rightful place once again. Do not think this is not coming, for it is to be. The feminine strength that you possess will be magnified, electrified, to all ears will hear and all eyes will see. And the heavens will rejoice as the prophecy is fulfilled and the bride is returned to her place with her beloved.

It is here. It is now. It has been foretold. The energy of the new day propels you forward into the restructuring of all life on earth. As this begins to take place, heavens doors will open and the rejoicing will be heard throughout every dimension for the loss of the feminine has been the devastation of this planet. Think nothing less for this is the root of all darkness. The light of the feminine is returned in the vehicle of Mary Magdalene and all women.

This power will grow in strength and beauty until all is changed and made new again, as it was in the beginning, balance restored. The dominion of the masculine over the feminine will no longer be. Your eyes are opening and you shall see things you never dreamed.

Rest in the knowing that you have done well and all is unfolding in a most sacred manner.


I wish you all the strength and power to speak your truth for it is truly the power and vibration that will change the world.


I will be offering the Magdalene Christ Crystal Star Healing Activation.
