"Mary Magdalene Beckons" by Mercedes Kirkel is an outstanding spiritual, self-help book, which is based entirely on the very close contact the author had with Mary Magdalene. Twenty-five channeled messages, followed by comments and the author’s personal spiritual journey during this communication with Mary, lead the reader to his very own, personal quest for the Divine Feminine within. We are all called to embrace everything that we had been made to suppress for centuries. First and foremost, we are called on to fully accept and surrender to pain, as this will lead us to the River of Life and the Unity with God, contrary to our tendency to numb it, with its many disastrous consequences. Secondly, Mary encourages us to open our hearts fully and to free it from the bonds imposed upon it by the system and ourselves. When opening our hearts, we are finally able to forgive, to love unconditionally, and to accept our bodies and our sexuality as another means of communing with the Divine. In doing so, we can create a better world for all, a world in whose birth Magdalene will help, as a highly compassionate and loving midwife.
"Mary Magdalene Beckons" is a book that almost called out to me to read; so compelled did I feel by the sight of the title. The process of reading the book itself led my heart to a path of catharsis, of deep purging, to the very depths of my soul. I literally felt God with me at those moments. I felt love and surrender, and forgiveness and an acceptance of myself such as I have never experienced. The knowledge that by simply embracing your Divine Feminine you can reach such profound levels of spiritual liberation is so powerful that it makes this book a must-read for everybody. It comes with my warmest recommendations and my most heartfelt gratitude to the author for sharing this with the world.
