Sun, May 15th, 2016: Today we arrived in the Cathar heartland; the region that many readers of Kathleen McGowan´s bestselling “The Expected One” are familiar with. We started off by visiting the medieval castle town of Carcassonne. In the Middle Ages it served as a refuge for thousands of the Cathars, which fled from the murdering and destructive troops of the church. Yet they could not escape death. Nowadays, 40 million tourists visit this World Heritage Site each year. So you can imagine how busy the narrow alleyways inside the fortress were.
In the Abbey of Saint-Hilaire dedicated to Saint Hilarius it was much more tranquil. You could very well feel his energy in the beautiful cloister. We also showed the participants of our journey the mid-relief, which appears to show Jesus with Mary Magdalene.
The stunning basilica of Notre-Dame de Marceille in Limoux was where we felt a tremendous amount of female energy. Every time we are there we are again impressed with its colorful walls and gorgeous floor mosaics. It is very rare to find this much lightness and harmony in a sacred building.
Back in our castle hotel Anna and Mary Magdalene spoke to me during our evening channeling and I channeled their messages for the group. We ended our first day in Languedoc, the land of Mary Magdalene´s descendants, with a delicious dinner.
