Prayer to Magdalene
 

Magdalene, Mary, Miriam, Sister
Healer of our souls and our bodies
I lay down on the stone of memory
In the ocean of time
You who are the Revealer
You who are the Healer
I come and ask from the inside

Please upturn the stone

The stone that I am afraid of

The one that I have wedged into the

cliff of my consciousness

Where my small frightened face lives

Show me that my healing power also lives there

Both of them together

Give me the eyes to see, Magdalena

Give me the ears to hear, Miriam

I come and ask from the inside

Please show me the way

Essential Guide Notes for Session 1:

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE STEADFAST? 

ETYMOLOGY = STANDING FIRM

DICTIONARY MEANING: LOYAL  -  FAITHFUL - COMMITTED - DEVOTED 

 

JOURNAL: QUESTIONS FOR CONTEMPLATION

  1. What are we Standing Firm on?

  2. What are we loyal, faithful, committed, devoted to? First we have our ideal, now what does the rhythm of your life tell you about how loyal you are

 

 

QUOTES TO BE WITH:

Gospel of Thomas: Logion 94

“Yeshua said,

Whoever seeks will find,

whoever knocks from inside, it will open for them.”

 

Gospel of Thomas: Logion 80 

“Yeshua said, 

Whoever knows the world

discovers the body,

But the world is unworthy

of whoever discovers the body”

 

 

 

FINDING YOUR NATURAL RHYTHM:

Even if we have a rhythm of prayer, how may you “spice” it up so it sets you free - what is missing or what do you need more/less of?

 

Some Suggestions:

  1. Early Morning: Greeting your Natural Environment, the Elements and Elemental Beings - Stand Firm in your own Elemental Physical Body - Spirit and Body united

 

2.  Morning: Chant of Magdalene - Ya Ma Kallah Mashiach - Prayer to her (see below) or create your own prayer - Meditation from Recording or your own - Standing Firm in your Emotional and Spirit Body - Anointing

 

3. Find the right time for Healing Sounds, Qigong, Yoga (maybe morning maybe early evening)

 

3. Mid-day - Short Prayer to the Mother for all beings in our world - Standing Firm with All

 

4. Walking with Intention

 

5. Night Prayer - Dance - Mystic/Contemplative Dance or Fun - Laugh! Standing Firm in Your Joyful Body

 

All of these together unite us in our own being, which makes us Steadfast through all our activities of the day and night.

 

 

FREEDOM = BEING STEADFAST

BEING STEADFAST = FREEDOM - Contemplate this

Session 2: 

Prayer to Yeshua

Beloved Yeshua, Friend, Companion, Brother

You who liberate

 

Free me from what enslaves my mind and memory

Free me from what enslaves my heart

Free me from what enslaves my body

 

Let Joy resurrect

Let Freedom resurrect

Let Life resurrect

 

I Return

I Return to Faith

Faith in my true self and nature

She, who is right here

He, who is right here

The Queendom within

The Kingdom within

 

Spreading it across our Earth

Creating the World to Come

Essential Guide Notes for Session 2:

CHANT: YESHUA MASHIACH - The One Who Liberates - The Anointed One

Magdalene anointed him and helped bring him into his true nature. She could see him.

 

Yeshua’s Mission: To free people from their enslavement to fear. How are we enslaved today?

 

 

GOSPEL OF THOMAS: Logion 17

Yeshua said:

I will give you that which no eye has seen,

no ear has heard,

no hand has touched,

and no human heart has conceived

 

JOURNALING: What is it that Yeshua wishes to give you?

 

 

GOSPEL OF THOMAS: Logion 103

Yeshua said:

Blessed are they who know

at what time of night the thieves will come

They will be awake,

gathering their strength

and strapping on their belts

before the thieves arrive

 

JOURNALING: Who are the thieves and what are they stealing from you? Can you catch them before they catch you?

 

HOW DID YESHUA STAND FIRM? ON WHAT DID HE STAND?

 

The Ground of Faith - The Ground of Inner Knowing - Faith in himself and what was given to him 

 

JOURNALING: What is the Ground of our Faith?

 

 

 

The Early Christians: The Unshakeable Race - The Ones who Know

 

JOURNALING: Where do we go when we begin to shake, when we lose our knowing, when the thief of self-doubt or fear arises?

 

 

NOW THROW YOUR JOURNAL AWAY AND GET UP AND DANCE WITH YESHUA

ASKING: Where does the fear live in the very tissue of my body?

Session 3:

Prayer to Magdalene & Yeshua

Magdalene, Sister, Yeshua, Brother

I come on this Full Moon

Fully Present in my Body

in my Soul, in All of who I am on this Earth

I open to the Healing Grace that lives within me

My Faith as Healer

My Knowing as Healer

My Presence as Healer

I lay down the thieves that have made their home in me

and ask for their healing, their returning, 

to their original nature of Love

I ask that the thieves roaming in our world, sowing fear, doubt, and violence

are given a glimpse of their own nature of Presence,

that they taste their nature of Love

and remember their original being 

 

Magdalene, Sister, teach me how to Dance in the Presence of my own being

Yeshua, Brother, teach me how to have Faith in the Presence of my own being

May you both together, teach me the Joy of the Presence of Eternal Love 

Alive here and now in every cell of my body

Essential Guide Notes for Session 3:

GATHERING OUR STEADFAST STUDY

 

Contemplative Study: Keep Returning to the Text and see what it is gifting you

 

Chant: Can also use as a mantra while walking, upon waking, anytime you want to connect in with the energy of Magdalene and Yeshua

 

FIRST CLASS: Natural Rhythm - Asking From the Inside -

The Body and Magdalene as Revealer and Healer (see texts above in notes)

 

SECOND CLASS: Yeshua’s Faith as Inner Knowing - Receiving and Enlivened Way of Hearing, Seeing, Touching and Feeling - That which is Ours - Keeping the Thieves at Bay (those energies that seek to disrupt our inner knowing and sow doubt and fear) 

(see texts above in notes)

 

THIRD CLASS: Presence and Present Moment

 

GOSPEL OF THOMAS: Logion 91 (At beginning of class)

They said to him: “Tell us who you are so that we may believe in you.”

He answered them:

You search the face of heaven and earth,

but you do not recognize the one who is in your presence

and you do not know how to experience the present moment.

 

(At end of Ritual)

You search the face of heaven and earth,

and now you begin to recognize your own Presence

and you begin to experience the present moment

 

Whose Presence Are You In? Your Own

~ Going beyond mindfulness and being in the present moment to also include knowing your own Inner Presence or Inner Beloved

 

 

PRAYER: May I Know My Own Presence

AFFIRMATION: I Am Presence and I Am Present

(You may also want to use Inner Beloved)

 

PRESENCE = All of You

The Sacred Self of Presence and the Ego-Mind of self are not separate

 

GOSPEL OF THOMAS: Logion 67 (At beginning of class)

Yeshua said: Those who know the All

yet do not know themselves

are deprived of everything

 

(At end of Ritual)

Those who know every part of their being as the All,

as the Presence,

are deprived of nothing

 

We may feel and know God’s love, but if we do not feel our own what do we really have?Division - Conflict - Constant Unease and Discontent - Lack of Love (Love is Everything that we are depriving ourselves of and so much extended from that)

 

I NO LONGER WANT TO DEPRIVE MYSELF OF ANYTHING

I NO LONGER WANT TO DEPRIVE MYSELF OF EVERYTHING, WHICH IS LOVE

YESHUA SAID:
WHOEVER SEEKS WILL FIND;
WHOEVER KNOCKS FROM INSIDE, IT WILL
OPEN TO THEM

~ The Gospel of Thomas

SPLIT THE WOOD AND I AM THERE
TURN OVER THE STONE,
AND THERE YOU WILL FIND ME

~ The Gospel of Thomas

THE BELOVED WOULD NEVER WANT TO DO ANYTHING ELSE THAN GIVE IF WE COULD RECEIVE

~ Teresa of Avila
