On one of my first journeys through the south of France, many years ago, I remembered the novel ‘The Da Vinci Code’ by Dan Brown. The movie was playing in the area. It was the first book which aroused my interest in Mary Magdalene, a long time before I came across Kathleen McGowan’s ‘The Expected One’. Both books have become world bestsellers, opening new perspectives on Mary Magdalene, Jesus, and their relationship, to millions of readers.
These two authors also opened my inner door to Mary Magdalene. Until then I was not aware that Mary Magdalene was assigned with a totally false role in the Bible. And, to be honest, I was not really interested in this historical figure.
But these two books triggered an inner wake-up call. All those of you who know me, and my work, are aware that I am closely connected with Mary Magdalene in a psychic way, and that I receive messages and spiritual tools, from her.
The Bible should be rewritten
But let’s go back to Dan Brown and Kathleen McGowan. Their tales about Mary Magdalene, wrapped into a thrilling story, allowed many people for the first time, to think that Mary Magdalene and Jesus could have been in a relationship. Their books are based on years of research, and knowledge gained from experts on Mary Magdalene. Specialists, such as Margaret Starbird and Laurence Gardner.
The story of Mary Magdalene can be reconstructed in different ways, historically, religiously and on a psychic level. However, the recognition that she was the wife of Jesus, totally questions old clerical theories and beliefs.
It is obvious that the church is not happy with these findings. Accepting them would affect the veracity of their doctrines, not only the way they present Mary Magdalene and Jesus. We know what this means. And we also know what shouldn’t be, cannot be.
Life is safer as fantasist and dreamer
Dan Brown and Kathleen McGowan were smart enough to wrap their revelations into a novel and not a work of non-fiction. Otherwise their discoveries could have been seen as claiming to be the truth and used against them. Therefore, they probably live an easier, and most of all safer life, as fantasists and dreamers rather than having the reputation of being historical researchers into Mary Magdalene.
If it was their purpose in life to present Mary Magdalene as the woman by Jesus’ side, to a wider audience, then they have more than fulfilled it. I am sure they have become immune to all the attacks and defamations they have endured through the years.
