Taking Up the Veil of the Magdalene

Below is a reflection from one of the recent graduates of the Magdalene Priesthood Training. Her words perfectly describe the Magdalene calling and I am grateful to V. for being willing to share these words – both a reflection and a testimonial!  

“It is time for you to take up the veil and teach!” Jesus said to me in meditation his loving eyes piercing into my soul. As he speaks these words, I feel a veil being placed upon my head by two women. This 15 month journey has been a process of remembering and owning who I truly am and how I am uniquely called to be of service to the world. I have always been a Magdalene. One of many who are called to be love in the world, each in her own unique way.

How am I uniquely called to be of service in the world? First in my own healing and then in service to the world? My path is the path of the healer, but not in the traditional sense. The main gift I have been given is the gift of encouragement along with love of learning (knowledge). Through the vehicle of teaching, am I to create a safe place so that a person can be uniquely themselves in all its messy glory of being human at this time on this planet. From a place of non-judgement and acceptance a person can begin to remember their own unique gift and purpose. As the spark of remembrance ignites in each of us, we become a light in this world. Our individual light will combine with others to illuminate this world with love. It is a collaborative effort and we are each needed. My job is to be that support and encouragement as someone begins the process of clearing away all that stands in the way of them radiating their own light in the world.

So how did I get to this point? This is what the 15 month journey has been about. What did I need to clear away? The false perception that I am separate from God. We are all one with God. Always have been, always will be. This wound acts out differently in people but the source is the same.  All of the courses in the Magdalene training were about digging into and clearing that wound.

For me in particular, this wound showed itself as not feeling worthy. As the false belief that God would choose everyone else but me to be of service in the world. The belief that I had nothing of value to offer that the Divine would be interesting in using. But, that is a lie! We all have immense value! Each and every one of us. We have just forgotten who we truly are. We are unique manifestations of the Divine. As we heal from the false perception of separation from God we begin to beautifully radiate our own individual spark of the Divine.

The tool that has had the most profound effect on me, helping me to stay in alignment with this truth is the Lord’s Prayer in Aramaic. I spent a lot of time with this. Learning each phrase and how it feels in the body. I continue to start and end each day with this prayer. Does it mean that life is smooth sailing? Not at all! But it does mean that I have the tool to re-center myself.

I don’t know that the future will look like or how I will ever be able to put this knowledge into practice. I am in the unknown and it causes discomfort and doubt at times. However, I draw strength from remembering a meditation experience I had during the Resurrecting the Magdalene course. I am in red, disheveled and weary, my dress worn and dusty. I am following a path that takes me to a mountain top. Jesus is there smiling and waiting for me. He takes my hand. I am rejuvenated and joyful. My beat up garment becomes white and pristine. We look out across a mountain view. Lights are coming on all over the place. This is continuing across the face of the earth. Love will save the Earth! My heart sings! I turn to look at the path that I have just trod. There are many more like me. They are coming up the path battered and weary, but they have made it! They have remembered the spark of the Divine within them. They are becoming a light in this world. I am one of those lights and so are you!

The Principles and Practices of Magdalene Mastery

While the world is busy chasing after shiny objects, Authentic Freedom Academy and the Order of the Magdalene focus their attention and intention on that which will remain.  Shiny objects are those things which provide temporary satisfaction, momentary titillation, and excitement.  Shiny objects make us feel good and might give us a thrill but the satisfaction never remains.  Human beings seek after shiny objects in an attempt to fill the emptiness and longing caused by the common human wound of separation.  Shiny objects, however, can never fill that void of separation.  The wound of division cannot be filled from something outside of us.  It can only be fulfilled from within.

Satisfying the longing and emptiness left behind by the wound of separation can only be fulfilled by healing that wound. Healing the wound of separation is only accomplished through a disciplined, persistent, practiced approach of identifying, healing and transforming our deepest and most stubborn wounds. The work of healing these wounds require courage, the willingness to be vulnerable, and most importantly, the ability to be honest with ourselves around the topic of our wounds and the ways in which our wounds might come out sideways in non-loving behavior toward ourselves or others.  With consistent attention to this work, we soon come to realize that we are the shiny object we’ve been looking for. In clearing away our wounds, past traumas, and the guilt heaped upon us through societal conditioning, we see the beauty, brilliance and magic of our true and most authentic self – that which we’ve been seeking all along.

At Authentic Freedom Academy and the Order of the Magdalene, we are not another one of those shiny objects that you might be tempted to entertain.  We are not about to blow smoke up your ass, or make you feel good about yourself by feeding your ego. Instead, we support you and help guide you through the tools and practices we have developed which will help you find satisfaction with yourself.  Finding yourself includes discovering your gifts, being empowered to develop, cultivate and share your gifts.  Finding yourself also includes the deep, often challenging and messy work of soul retrieval – identifying and clearing away the debris of past woundedness and the behaviors that arose out of these wounds so that only your true, original, and untainted self remains.  Here you will find the confidence to live your truth along with the inner power that will fuel you in your work.  Shiny object will always leave you unsatisfied.  With Magdalene Mastery, you will find deeply rooted fulfillment, enduring satisfaction, contentment, joy, and peace in your own personal sovereignty.

Genesis of this Course

The Holy Bride in Exile course has come about in both a logical and an illogical way. The logical includes almost thirty years of intensive study of the Magdalene, my own education and experience in scripture study, theology, religious history, human development, psychology, Christian and Jewish mysticism, etc. etc. etc.  Also logical are all the courses I’ve developed and facilitated including the Magdalene Priesthood training, the Order of Melchizedek Alchemist training, and my most recent courses on the Gospel of Mary Magdalene and Mary Magdalene and the Path of the Holy Bride.  All of this work, and my own integration of these studies provided the framework out of which exploration of the Bride in Exile became possible.

The illogical is the lightening bolt that pierced through me while reading Raphael Patai’s The Hebrew Goddess. When I came upon Patai’s words, “The Holy Bride in Exile,” the whole world turned on its axis, everything stopped, and the downloads began.  It literally felt as if the top of my head had been opened up and someone/something was pouring awareness and knowledge into me. If this wasn’t exciting (terrifying) enough, what was being shown to me validated and affirmed a calling that has likely been present within me my whole life, but now had become increasingly urgent:

The call to a more interior way of sacred living.

 It is because I know I am not alone in this calling that I share this course with you.  This, I believe, is so much more than a course, it is:

Permission and Support

 for a way of living that has been lost in our society – one that was once valued (more on that later), but with the advent of the patriarchy, and more recently of capitalism, interior living has been cast aside as ridiculous, or at the very least, counter-cultural.

 

“Only crazy or morbidly depressed people would want to spend most of their time in solitary contemplation and study, moving slowly and gently upon this earth.”

 

The Holy Bride in Exile says otherwise.  Not only is the Holy Bride in Exile an ancient archetype, it is, I believe, a critical stage in the Soul development of those who are either called to exile as a way of living, or who find themselves in temporary states of exile as part of their Soul’s journey of unfolding.  Society needs its hermits for reasons that we will uncover in this course.

My greatest heart desire in sharing this journey with you is that you feel validated and affirmed in your own unique calling and that you discover the empowerment that is inherent in our times of exile.  Additionally, I hope that through this support you can harness the courage and strength to boldly live your interior life knowing that by doing so you are offering a powerful gift not only to yourself, but also to the world.

I Don’t Just Teach ABOUT the Magdalene…

For nearly 30 years I have been involved in the study of and the work of the Magdalene.  The longer I do this work, the more people I see out there laying claim to the Magdalene.  While every voice is important, there is a marked difference between what I am doing and what I am seeing in the work of others. Here is the distinction:

Magdalene is not a place name, neither is it Mary’s surname.  Magdalene is a title and a designation that was awarded to Mary, called Magdalene for accomplishing the task of becoming anthropos – fully human and fully Divine.  Mary completed the journey of awakening to her true Divine self and then allowing that Divinity to live through her fully.  She became Divine Embodiment.  This is the task that earned her the designation and title of Magdalene – beacon and tower of the flock. The title of Magdalene is similar to the title of Christ earned by Jesus for accomplishing the same task. 

Mary Magdalene, Magdalene and Easter, Mary Magdalene and Jesus, Mary Magdalene and women's ordination

THIS is the work I have been researching and then sharing with you through my online courses, weekly lessons, newsletters, etc.  I don’t just teach about the Magdalene, I share with you tools and resources that help to support you in your own journey of becoming anthropos – giving you the tools to Embody your true Divine Self and to live that Divinity freely in our world.  This embodiment empowers to use your own unique gifts to be a vessel of transformation and love in a world in great need of your gifts.  

In case you are a stickler for credentials, this is another difference in what I am offering in comparison to others.  My education speaks for itself, but more importantly are the resources I draw from.  All of my Magdalene offerings draw from original source materials.  I draw from Hebrew and Christian scripture.  I draw from non-canonical scripture (somewhat inaccurately called “gnostic”).  I draw from the original source materials of the Kabbalah – the Jewish branch of mysticism.  Approaching these ancient texts through the lens of contemplative prayer has helped me to discern the truths hidden behind the dogma and doctrine that often clouds our understanding of scripture and helps me to eek out the original writings from later redactions.  When in doubt, I turn to modern scripture scholarship for confirmation. In short, I have untangled the strings of ancient knowledge and rewoven them into something we can approach and digest in our modern era.  The Word was not meant to remain stagnant within a specific time or place, it is meant to be alive and drawing forth truth in every generation.  This is what I have done while also assisting you in doing the same.

I am eternally humbled and grateful to be doing this work.  I trust you will find it helpful and supportive of your own desire to be and live as your most authentic self!

Guest Post: Is There No King in You?

Today’s post comes from one of the amazing women who are currently participating in my Live/online course, The Gospel of Mary Magdalene.  The following came forth through a meditation activity I invited the participants to enter into with a scripture reading from the prophet Micah.  I share Louisa’s beautiful (passionate) response to Micah’s question followed by the scripture itself.  Thank you Louisa for this passionate and truthful response!  A note to the reader:  Read this sharing in the voice of a passionate and perhaps a bit angry and frustrated woman! (You know, we’ve all been there!) Selah!

 

In Response to Micah: 

 

“Is there no King in you?”

 

There is a visceral reaction to these words.  Words that value my courage, my tenacity, my worth, based on the internalized masculine.

 

There is no King in me.

He would only get in my way and obstruct me with his ridiculous rules, his lust for power, his striving in ignorance to feed his insatiable ego.

 

There is no King in me.

He would slow me down with his mansplaining and denial of the emotions that are woven through me and make me juicy and complex.

 

If there were a King here,

My labor would stall.  I would be expected to birth in silence, suppressing my creative needs, and bringing forth only that which he deemed worthy.

 

Without my inner King,

I am fierce. I bring forth life. I connect the fertile Earth beneath me with the Celestial Majesty above.

 

Unlike him,

I don’t live on the Earth, squeezing every resource I can from her for my own self- aggrandizement.  I live of the Earth, in the Earth, from the Earth, and by the Earth.

 

No, there is no King in me.

I don’t have that kind of time to waste.

 

So, tell me instead,

“Is there no Queen in you?”

Micah 4: 8-13

And you, O tower of the flock,
hill of daughter Zion,
to you it shall come,
the former dominion shall come,
the sovereignty of daughter Jerusalem.

Now why do you cry aloud?
Is there no king in you?
Has your counselor perished,

that pangs have seized you like a woman in labor?
Writhe and groan,O daughter Zion,
like a woman in labor;
for now you shall go forth from the city
and camp in the open country;
you shall go to Babylon.

There you shall be rescued,
there the Lord will redeem you
from the hands of your enemies.

Now many nations
are assembled against you,
saying, “Let her be profaned,
and let our eyes gaze upon Zion.”
But they do not know
the thoughts of the Lord;
they do not understand his plan,
that he has gathered them as sheaves to the threshing floor.
Arise and thresh,
O daughter Zion,
for I will make your horn iron
and your hoofs bronze;
you shall beat in pieces many peoples,
and shall devote their gain to the Lord,
their wealth to the Lord of the whole earth.

The Rise of the Priestess

Priestess (definition):  A woman who has been called, through her own unique gifts, to be in service to the healing and betterment of the world and its inhabitants.

We are living in and through a critical time of human evolution.  The world we have known, that is rooted in oppression, is imploding upon itself.  As the old world is dying, a new world is being born to take its place.  In support of this transformation, the ancient order of the priestess has been called forth as thousands (perhaps millions) of women (and men) come forward to be of service to this simultaneous dying and rising.

As in the days of old, the priestess serves her local community and the world by BEING a vessel through which this transformation is taking place.   As gold is tested in fire, the priestess is literally the fire in which the dying world is purged of its impurities and made into something new.  The priestess does this through her own unique giftedness and Divine calling.  Depending on her calling the priestess’ task may include one or more of the following:

  • Healing
  • Education
  • Communicator
  • Translator
  • Discernment
  • Counselor
  • Wisdom Keeper
  • Knowledge Keeper
  • Facilitator of Ritual
  • Prophecy
  • Midwives of Birthing and Dying

Priestesses have always existed in our world, but it has been several thousand years since priestesses of this magnitude have been called forth.  More pointedly, it has been several thousand years since women (and men) have had the freedom to step into and share their gifts in the world without having to fear being burned at the stake.

Owning the priestess calling, is still no easy task.  We still live in a world where women’s powers are considered at the least suspect, and at the worst, demonic.  Women who commune with the Divine, who have the uncanny ability of knowing things, or who have demonstrated the power to heal, continued to be labeled witch, heretic, or in league with the devil.  None of this is true, but that does not prevent others from treating the emerging priestess with condemnation and scorn.

Every priestess who has come forth for the sake of the current transformation has experienced profound suffering – if not at the hands of others, then because of the obstacles she has had to overcome in heeding, cultivating and living out her calling. Unlike the days of old, or the Wizarding World of Harry Potter lore, there are no formal academies for teaching a priestess how to 1) identify her calling, 2) discover and develop her gifts, and 3) learn how to share them in the world.  Furthermore, there are no schools where one is supported in learning how to move through and transform both the inner obstacles and past conditioning that would otherwise prevent a priestess from sharing her gifts.  (or are there????  Wink wink).

In ancient times, the priestess was the center of the community/clan or tribe.  She and her fellow priestesses (also known by titles such as shaman, medicine woman, etc.) were responsible for the wellbeing and wholeness of the community.  The priestess read the signs of the weather, healed the sick, educated the young, mediated conflict, presided over planting and harvesting, acted as midwife at both birthings and dyings.  The priestess ensured harmony and balance within the community and in their relationship to the natural world.  For their service to the tribe, the priestesses’ needs were provided for so that they could focus their energy and attention on their calling.  The priestesses’ services were valued and the provision for and protection of the priestesses was of utmost importance to the communities they served.

In the world in which we are living, this is unfortunately, not the case.  But soon this will no longer be the case.  When the dying world realizes the critical role of the priestess in helping to restore order, balance and harmony in our world, the priestess will once again be held in high regard and cared for as such. In the meantime, we do the best we can to share our visible and often invisible gifts and trust we will be supported as together we find our way through this unprecedented transformation of our world and our species.

 

Caring for the Priestess: returning to the original model of support

I am very passionate about the programs and services I provide through Authentic Freedom Academy.   These services and programs have proven for many to be life-changing.  I know this has been true for me. (Before sharing these resources, I first had to master them myself).

While the sharing of these programs and services is how I provide for myself and my family, I do not want those called to this level of support to be prevented from participation because of financial limitations.  This is especially true as we move through these troubling times and as many are suffering financial hardship due to Covid-19.  I do not want this time of financial hardship to prevent you from receiving the support you need during these difficult times.

In light of this I am initiating a new pricing policy:  PAY WHAT YOU ARE ABLE.  If you are feeling a strong pull toward my online courses, training programs or the need for personal support through spiritual counseling or Reiki, but are struggling financially, please reach out to me directly.

Email me at lauri@authenticfreedom.love and together we will work out a financial arrangement that works for you.  Payment plans, deferred payments, discounted fees and even full scholarships are possible depending on your unique situation.  Please do not hesitate to reach out.  I want as many people as possible to enjoy the benefits of the programs and services that have helped me and the hundreds of women and men who have enjoyed them through my support.

And if you are financially blessed and would like to provide support for those who are struggling financially, I welcome your generous donation on behalf of those who might not have the means to pay.  Donations can be made directly through my website using the “Donate” button at the bottom of the sidebar menu to the right.

I look forward to supporting you in finding peace, in discovering and living as your true self, and in learning the tools that will help you to stay centered in the middle of a world in crisis.

 

With love,

We are the Magdalenes

We are the Magdalenes. We live and walk and work among you. We come from all walks of life, from every tribe of the human race.   We are those who have completed the task of Love.  We have been supported in applying the original teachings of LOVE offered by and modeled by Jesus (and all other great spiritual teachers like him) – the teachings on Love which were then fulfilled through Mary, called Magdalene, and which has continued to show itself throughout history through those who have seen beyond the veil to the love concealed within.  

Mary Magdalene at the Tomb by Lauri Ann Lumby

We have come to know the Love that we are in our Oneness within ourselves, with the God of our understanding, with each other and with all of creation.  In being open to this Love, we know no separation.  Love transcends all beliefs, all creeds, all nationalities, all genders, etc.  In this Love, there is no race but the human race.  There is no sexual orientation but love.  There is no nation, only one world.  There is no religion – only love. Love is all there is and Love is all we work to see and to know. Any perceived division is only a temporary veil over the love that has not yet been fully realized.  When division arises, we seek out the wound that is at its core, and support the healing of that wound wherever possible, as Jesus and Mary, called Magdalene, did before us.  

For two thousand years we have been concealed among you, waiting.   At this critical juncture in human evolution, we come forth to be seen and to be known so that you might find hope in a world that is dying and faith in a new world that is seeking to be born.  

We are your teachers, your guides, your mirror.  Through our eyes you are seen as Love and in our eyes, you see that Love.  From this Love you will either turn away in fear, or, come forward in Love.  Either way, we love you for who you are and for the path you have chosen, for we have come to know that even when we choose fear, this too is a choice for Love.  As the prophet once said, “In you, darkness and light are but one.”  Of course, we hope that your choice will be for Love, because we have seen the fruits of this Love.

In this Love, we have found our unique purpose through our Divine gifts, which we then utilize for the sake of our own fulfillment and then in service to the betterment of the world. In this, you will find us using our gifts in all walks of life whether we are mother, father, teacher, minister, physician, healer, counselor, businessperson, athlete, entertainer, artist, banker, accountant, educator, administrator, etc. etc. etc.  There are no limits as to how or where we can apply the Love that we know, for this Love is infinite and universal.  It is this life of meaning and purpose that too shall be yours when you make the choice for Love. 

But even more than meaning and purpose, the promise of Love is peace.  In the depths of the Love that we are, we know a deep and abiding peace. This is “the peace that surpasses all understanding,” and which allows us to navigate the twists and turns, ups and downs, joys and sufferings of the human condition.  While fear is always present as a consequence of choosing the human condition, Love provides the key to finding our way through that fear.  It is here that we come to know the “kingdom of God within” that Jesus promised – not in some heaven light years away, but right here, in the midst of the human experience.  It is for the sake of this purpose that we are here, to help you know what those “who have eyes to see” have come to known – the Love that has been here all along!

We are the Magdalenes. Our mission and purpose is Love – the Love that is YOU!

Coming Home

For me, as I suspect is true for all of us, the search for “home” has been a lifelong journey.  I can humbly say that I believe I have found “home” in a place within where I am at peace with myself, one with the God of my understanding, pretty clear on what my gifts are to the world, sharing those gifts to the best of my ability and creating the life rhythm and flow that supports the Home I feel within myself.

I’m still working on the rhythm and flow piece, but the rest feels pretty well-grounded.  The one piece that is not yet matching the vision that has been with me for the past 26 years (my whole life if I’m really honest) is the COMMUNITY piece.

This is where I need your help!

The overall vision of Authentic Freedom, is, and has always been, TO BE A SPIRITUAL HOME where women and men can gather as companions on this journey of self-discovery and self-actualization – being unconditional, loving support for each other as we try to find our way home – home to ourselves. This is the kind of support that can only be found in the sanctity and refuge of a safe space in which we can be ourselves, where we can share our own individual perspectives, believes and experiences without fear of judgment.  It can also only happen in a space where we can equally share our fears, our struggles and our challenges along the path.  The way can be hard and we often need each other to lift each other up!

This is the exact purpose of the membership options at Authentic Freedom, to create space in which people may gather and connect.  The social network (Plus Membership) and Teacher’s Circle (Premium), especially, lend themselves to connection.

If you have not yet joined our Social Network, please consider doing so.  It’s only $15.00 per month and if even that is outside of your budget, please email me directly lauri@authenticfreedom.love and we will figure something out.  I don’t want to turn away anyone to truly feels called to be in community with those of like mind.

Here are the detail on the membership options:
https://authenticfreedom.love/plans/membership-options/

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this email, and I look forward to building this community with you!

With love,

Lauri
