Scripture: Piercing through the Veil of Doctrine

Temple of the Magdalene

You will notice that scripture plays a predominant role in my writing and in most of my local and online courses. My approach to scripture is unlike any you have likely experienced before!  I do not approach scripture from a dogmatic or doctrinal perspective.  Neither do I use it as a way to instill fear or manipulate specific actions or behaviors.  Instead, I approach scripture as the ancients did – as a collection of stories which have the opportunity to reflect back to us aspects of ourselves.  In this way, scripture becomes a vehicle through which our highest self can speak to us – providing guidance, support, inspiration, nourishment and even healing.

When we pierce through the veil of other people’s interpretations and allow the Divine to speak to us personally and directly through these ancient texts, we discover the transformational power of The Word as it was originally intended…

The Girl is No One

When even the one thing we thought we knew is no longer:

What Do You Do When Your Universe is Collapsing?

The universe as I have known it is collapsing. Everything around me that has defined my life; that has been the container for my life; that has been the vehicle for my life and provided structure, routine, and even a livelihood is falling away. This is a process that began in 2015 and continues. I have come to call 2015 the year of “letting go.”  2016 was the year of emptying.  And 2017…..I am calling the year of WTF?!  I’m at the place in this journey of my universe collapsing of knowing only one thing:

I am moving (hopefully) on September 1 into a new home.

After that….I know nothing.

In the emptying, I have been instructed to let it all go and not worry about the rest. I have also been told that if THIS MUCH emptying is required, that there must be something HUGE waiting to take its place.  I just don’t get to know what that “something huge” might be.  I’ve been given a few glimpses, but I’ve also been instructed not to get attached to any of what “might” be part of my new universe.  My Soul has been singing “Let it Go!”

while my heart is trying to ease my anxious mind. (JUST as I completed this sentence, two hummingbirds flew past my window!  Hummingbird magic delivers the impossible in magical and miraculous ways!!!!!)  In this moment my life is a completely empty slate.  No clients.  No classes.  No business activity to pursue to fill my empty time. No books to write or edit.  More importantly, no inspiration or motivation to write.  Nothing.  Nadda.  Zilch.  Only an opportunity to continue emptying in preparation for a move and for what I do not know.

So what does one do when their universe is collapsing and the new universe has not yet come into being?

NOTHING.

Nothing.

Nothing.

We sit in the void of emptiness. We allow ourselves to FEEL the discomfort of the emptiness.  We enter into the anxiety of not knowing.  We surrender to not knowing.  We refrain from looking at or striving after material things (ie $$$$$).  We allow ourselves to simply be – knowing that the wheel of life is turning and that the Universe (aka God) has something amazing in store that we could not possibly image for ourselves.  We wait.  And we find comfort in the fact that on the other side of every death is the promise of new life.

Meeting Mary Magdalene

Lauri’s latest book. Buy it Now on Amazon.com.

In 1978, I had my first personal, mystical encounter with the Christ and the Magdalene.  They came to me through the Jesus Christ Superstar soundtrack, where for the first time I realized Jesus’ humanity and that Mary Magdalene played a much larger role in the life and ministry of Jesus than I had previously been led to believe.

While the Magdalene would wait to reveal herself fully, I immediately began having direct experiences of the Christ while in prayer, while attending mass, and through the experiences of my everyday life.  The Jesus that was revealing himself to me was markedly different from the Jesus I had been taught to worship in that he was fully human and directly accessible – meaning there was no need for an intermediary between human beings and Christ, we are able to know him directly through contemplation and prayer and through the circumstances of our daily lives.  Additionally, the Jesus that I was coming to know was not exclusive to those who proclaimed him as their savior.  Instead, this Jesus spoke a universal message of unconditional love that promised to transform every human being on this planet – whether they were Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Pagan, Buddhist, or otherwise.  Jesus’ message was for all of humanity, and you didn’t have to become Christian to find salvation in these truths.

As is common in the revelation of the feminine, the Magdalene came to me subtly at first – initially cloaked within the priestesses of Arthurian legend, Morganna in particular, and then through the other mystical and powerful women I encountered through music, cinema, theatre, art, and literature.  It wasn’t until 1994, while in ministry formation, that I had my first direct experience of the Magdalene.  This experience launched an avalanche of encounters through which I was guided by the Magdalene to learn the hidden truths of the Magdalene’s place within the Jesus story, in the beginning years of the Jesus movement, and how she continues to work on our behalf – helping us to discover,  integrate and embody the Living Teachings of Christ.

The Living Teachings of Christ, as revealed to me through both the Magdalene and the Christ, are those teachings which transcend dogma and doctrine, freeing Jesus’ teachings to adapt to an ever-changing world.  Not exclusive or limited to a specific belief system, the Living Teachings of Christ are universal in their appeal, revealing truth to every human being, no matter where they are in their journey and regardless of their specific belief system.  In a world that has become increasingly separated by belief, the unveiling of these teachings could not be more timely.

The Living Teachings of Christ, as revealed through both Jesus and Mary (called Magdalene) spring forth out of one foundational truth:

The Truth of Oneness

This is the truth that Jesus came to know within himself, and the truth he sought to teach his disciples.  Mary, called Magdalene, fully integrated and embodied this truth – the truth that we are all One – within ourselves, with each other, with all of creation and with God. Jesus and Mary experienced this Oneness as unconditional love.  This is the truth that promises to heal the fear and perceived separation that is the cause of suffering in the human condition, and to restore us to our original nature as LOVE.

Read my latest book which goes beyond the Living Teachings of Christ to reveal the Secret Teachings of Mary Magdalene.  Available in paperback and Kindle on Amazon.com.  Buy it HERE.

A note from the Magdalene:

My beloved sisters and brothers,

We are in an exciting time in the evolution of human consciousness. If you have found yourself drawn to these words, it is because you agreed to incarnate on the earth plane at this time to help usher in the age of Love.  You have agreed to this on behalf of the Divine intention of Love and for the sake of all of humanity.  As you know, this has been no easy task.  In order to support humanity in its next stage of evolution you have first had to do it for yourself.

Now you are the Body of Christ. Whether or not this is your chosen language, you have worked toward clearing past programming rooted in fear so you can more fully embody the Love /Light that is your true Divine calling. Congratulations and thank you!

The words you now hold in your hands are my gratitude gift to you. I thank my beloved Lauri Ann Lumby for being the vessel through which these teachings may now come forth.  The world is now ready and able to receive the Divine encodings presented herein.  Some of these teachings I’ve given to Lauri directly.  Some are her personal reflections.  Others I wrote directly through her hand. 

Some of what you receive here may seem unreal or even shocking. Worry not about that.  Take in what speaks to you and allow the teachings that might confront or challenge to simply be.  If they are meant for you they will find their roots at a time divinely ordained for you.

The ultimate purpose of these teachings is to support the world as it moves out of the fear that has held it imprisoned into the Love that is its original nature. Thank you for being a vessel through which you, and then the world, shall know that even in the human experience, there is Only Love.

 

All my love,

Mary, called Magdalene

(as written through the hand of Lauri Ann Lumby)

Confronting the Adversary

Depriving the Devil of His Power

Today’s teaching is about how to handle the “Devil” when he comes to call.  Here I will use a recent personal experience to illustrate how to confront the adversary, thereby depriving him of his power while restoring ourselves to our natural state of peace.  

When I mention the devil, I’m not referring to the dude in the red tights with horns and a pitchfork. Here I’m speaking about Satan, the name used in scripture to represent the inner adversary – the energy within us that comes forth in our lives to tempt us away from the path of our truth and who does so through our ego attachments, unhealed wounds and unacknowledged fears. Satan most often shows up within us in our fears, self-doubts and insecurities, but because we are One, Satan sometimes shows up through the actions of another who plays the role of the Adversary so as to show us what is in need of healing within us.

The Adversary can show up at any time in our lives, but “he” shows up more forcefully as we are preparing to or are in the midst of stepping more fully into our truth. The closer we get to our truth and to fulfilling the Divine purpose for our lives, the harder the Adversary works against us.  In this regard, the Adversary is something to be welcomed as he is in fact signaling that we are on the right path and he is giving us the opportunity to strengthen our resolve and grow in resiliency.  In this sense, the Adversary is our friend because he gives us an opportunity to see him for who he is, identify the inner fear that he is triggering within us and then move through and heal those fears so that we are even more free to live out our Divine purpose. In the personal experience of the Adversary that I am about to share, I have decided to receive him as a friend, as a sign that I am on the right path and in this I can thank him for reflecting back to me the fears that are still in need of healing as I move forward in my path.

Here’s how my experience of the Adversary showed up to me this morning:

As I mentioned earlier this week, I have entered into a professional collaboration with Kayla Burger of DesignLife. She recently featured some of my work in her video blog on anxiety, depression and panic attacks.  Kayla and I have arrived at a similar approach to dealing with these conditions in our own lives and have generously shared this approach with others as a complement to traditional methods of treatment.

In response to this video blog and my sharing of it, the following comment was posted:

Kayla was kind enough to delete the post, recognizing it as evidence of spite. She then shared the information with me and I immediately knew from whom the comment originated. My first reaction was to feel hurt.  Then I felt angry.  I chose not to reach out to the individual who wrote the comment as I knew it wouldn’t do any good.  While I know I did nothing wrong, they have formed their opinion.  I have hundreds of satisfied students and clients, and the opinion of one has no bearing on the experience of hundreds. Furthermore, I strongly believe that the truth stands on its own and wins out in the end.

In spite of deciding all of this, I still felt disturbed so I put my own tools into practice, recognizing this comment as the work of the Adversary. The timing of the Adversary’s arrival is quite interesting as Confronting the Adversary was the very topic of my Order of Melchizedek training course yesterday.  Also interesting is that the past week has been a huge time of expansion for me with the collaboration with DesignLife, the Feast of the Magdalene Summit and the upcoming Wild Woman Renaissance Summit that I will participate in on August 1st.  Expansion.  Expansion.  Expansion.  No wonder the Devil came a callin’!

In choosing to post these comments on Kayla’s site, this person played the role of the Adversary – triggering and reflecting back to me the fears that are not yet healed in me – the fear of rejection, or being seen as a fraud – both reflective of my own personal need to be seen as good, helpful and loveable. In spewing their wrath, this person has unwittingly helped me to see my unhealed fears and has provided me with an opportunity to do the work I know how to do to bring healing and release to these fears. They also helped me to see that I am indeed on the right path or the Adversary wouldn’t have shown up so forcefully.  Applying all I know about the Adversary I am now restored to peace and in this, I actually find myself grateful for the person who posted these comments on Kayla’s site.

Thank you dear friend for accepting the calling of the Adversary and in doing so, helping me to recognize and heal some fears. Know that I am grateful and as I am accepting the task of healing that you have set before me, I am holding you in love.  I wish you peace.

Celebrating Mary Magdalene

Temple of the Magdalene

The Bride says:
On my bed at night I sought him
whom my heart loves–
I sought him but I did not find him.
I will rise then and go about the city;
in the streets and crossings I will seek
Him whom my heart loves.
I sought him but I did not find him.
The watchmen came upon me,
as they made their rounds of the city:
Have you seen him whom my heart loves?
I had hardly left them
when I found him whom my heart loves.

Song of Songs 3: 1-4B

Please join me in celebrating, on her feast day, Mary Magdalene – disciple, co-equal minister, beloved of Christ, first witness to the resurrection, sent to tell the disciples, and ordained to continue Jesus’ ministry in his stead.  The Magdalene (meaning Great Tower of Faith) represents all that has been suppressed and oppressed in the patriarchal and hierarchical manipulation of…
