GRANTS PASS, Oregon—October 25, 2013—As our world nears crises of epic proportions at all levels of society, a new book describes how Mary Magdalene communicated timely messages of healing and change to an art therapist in Oregon.
Author Claire Sierra was in deep meditation during a routine acupuncture treatment in autumn of 2009 when she was visited by Mary Magdalene who requested Sierra write a book about the awakening of the Divine Feminine. Sierra received many of what she calls “Divine Downloads” from Mary Magdalene, which birthed into The Magdalene Path – Awaken the Power of Your Feminine Soul ($17.99, Balboa Press).
Most books about Mary Magdalene center on her historical life and relationship with Jesus. But The Magdalene Path explores her untold story and explains why the lost wisdom and distorted view of Mary Magdalene impacts us today. According to Sierra, when Mary Magdalene’s true identity as a leader in the early church was erased, this had a ripple effect on our modern society. The Magdalene Path addresses how to reclaim this lost power of the Divine Feminine.
“We are at a tipping point with decaying systems that no longer serve us. The Magdalene Path is part of a new movement to recover from our disconnected, masculinized culture on overdrive. By embracing our Feminine Soul, we can reclaim our lives and embody our deepest dreams, so we can show up powerfully and create the lives (and world) we long for,” says author Sierra. The book offers two dozen simple yet transformative practices to restore feminine essence back into our lives, including how to:
· Rejuvenate our minds and bodies to have more energy for what we truly love.
· Ignite our connection to Spirit through simple rituals and soul-care practices.
· Embrace our authentic, radiant beauty and reclaim our innate feminine power.
· Replenish our passion and creativity to revitalize our lives from the inside out.
Despite her controversy, Mary Magdalene is a compelling and luminous feminine spirit who empowers women to live larger and fully embrace their roles as change agents. As the Dalai Lama said, “The world will be saved by the western woman.” Channeled through Sierra, Mary Magdalene says, “For women, to reclaim the Divine Feminine is to reveal the sacred within. A woman with a revived inner feminine has a sense of herself as whole and holy…. Women are now ready to reveal their true divinity to themselves and to the world. And the world is ready. The world needs all the self-expressed, inspired, confident, love-filled women who are ready to live as a force to be reckoned with.” With compassionate messages like these and practices that show the way, we can learn how to uncover the disowned pieces of ourselves and of humanity, which have been hidden for thousands of years.
