Everyone has their own unique way of being guided to The Rose Path.
Even as a child, I felt a strong aversion towards the Church. I stopped practicing religion before I was a teenager. I think this is why it took me years to reconnect to the spiritual side of life. I can’t explain these feelings, it was an inner sense, a feeling I wasn’t being told the truth or real story, from childhood.
So when I kept seeing synchronicity with Magdalene, I brushed it off at first. I had no interest in reading any kind of religious text. I didn’t understand the relevance.
Then I came across The Magdalen Manuscript by Tom Kenyon almost 10 years ago.
The relationship – both the spiritual relationship & the very human partnership – described in the book, a profound [tantric] healing connection between Mary & Yeshua, deeply resonated.
This book changed my life & entire perspective on the rose synchronicity.
I’ve always been interested in sex & intimacy. I held workshops here & there & wrote articles, but had fears of fully diving in as a career.
For many women I know, they’re drawn to this path to work with other women, to hold women’s circles, to pass on Sacred Feminine Wisdom with other sisters who feel called.
For me, it’s been different.
Although I love to work with women, what led me to this path was something else.
I had several – & by several I mean at least a dozen – experiences of men in my life who confided in me that they’d experienced sexual trauma.
This isn’t something I hear spoken about very often.
In fact, years ago I connected with a non-profit devoted to raising awareness for men, www.1in6.org, because I wanted to inform myself.
There’s been a lot of stigma attached. Men are frequently shamed when they speak up – or not believed at all. And to experience trauma then be denied your experience by others is very painful.
The first few times this happened, I thought it was a coincidence.
Then as men continued to share these buried truths with me, I started to feel there was a more profound reason for it & that it was part of my soul calling to assist somehow.
I was hesitant to talk about the Magdalene/Priestess path for years now. I was doing a lot behind the scenes in private, including a temple keeper mentorship to prepare to speak up & create support. I had some imposter syndrome – especially because my calling felt different. The people I found were all amazing sources of Magdalene knowledge, but I didn’t feel like I belonged in those groups for some reason.
I’ve been called to provide more intimacy & conscious communication resources – especially for men & for couples.
I also feel strongly called to specifically assist with releasing shame around pleasure & sensuality.
Sacred sexuality can lift the veil of shame & assist with heart-opening, vulnerability & honest embodiment of higher love (something our planet deeply needs now).
I felt more called to talk specifically about sexual healing, which is probably why The Magdalen Manuscript to date has been the most resonant resource & remembrance, since the tantric/embodiment practices are a big focus.
Bottom line – trust your own path, your signs, your inner guidance.
Despite any doubts or fears, we each have a special reason for being on this planet.
Your path doesn’t need to look like anyone else’s journey to be meaningful or valid.
This is a path of sovereignty, of remembering & emanating the wisdom we already hold within.
