A Very Personal Book
on January 26, 2017
This book is clearly not intended for everyone … we live a world full of dogma, blatant lies, diminishment and religious beliefs about who Mary Magdalen and her partner (Jeshua) were … so for those that have ears to hear and eyes to see, read on … for those that do not, please pass on peacefully.
This has been a very personal book read for me. The three sections of the book (e.g., the channeling of Magdalen, Kenyon’s instruction on alchemy, and Judi Sion’s personal story) each serve their own purpose. This would NOT be a complete book without each of these three sections. Here is my experience with each section.
First, the energy and information of Magdalen’s section deeply resonated with me. It was instructive, a confirmation of my own experience with Jeshua, and generally myth shattering. While engaged with this section, I often had to slow down and take breaks so I could more consciously absorb Magdalen's words. I did sense a mild, external energetic when reading this section of the Magdalen Manuscript. Everything stated and attributed to Magdalen resonated with me. I also have used the etheric body exercises suggested by Magdalen (e.g., for raising energy), and they did work for me. The first time I used the exercises (before going to bed), later the next morning I began experiencing OBE vibrations before fully waking up.
The second section (by Tom Kenyon) is more cerebral, but highly instructive and filled with his professional insights about the various practices of alchemy (comparing ancient Indian, Chinese and Egyptian alchemy). I found this educational section a very necessary addition to the book – especially as a westerner. It also allowed me to realize that I resonate much more with the practices of Eqyptian alchemy. Tom's instruction is “peppered with mental aha’s” but was not energetic for me. I have been practicing the Taoist Celestial Gate meditation that Kenyon recommends in the book. It works as he suggests.
Third, Judi’s story (Tom’s wife and partner), while deeply moving, often left me emotionally uneasy and/or tired after reading. It was difficult to process all her early physical experiences (especially as a young adult), so I often had to meditate and/or re-center myself before returning to her story. I did complete reading all of her story, and I am appreciative that she candidly shared about her very personal experiences. I can understand now why Magdalen asked her (specifically) to share her story.
So, five stars for this myth shattering correction to western religious history and its VERY intentional focus upon the Divine Feminine (Isis). It was well worth reading.
