What Mary Magdalene’s alabaster jars are all about

You might have noticed that artists often portray Mary Magdalene with a jug, or some kind of jar. In this connection, we often talk about an alabaster jar which might not have been one:

“While he (Jesus) was in Bethany, reclining at the table in the home of Simon the Leper, a woman came with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, made of pure nard. She broke the jar and poured the perfume on his head.” (1)

An alabastron (Greek alabastros), as quoted in the passage from the Bible, can be made of all sorts of materials. It is a high, narrow container without a lid, either sealed or closed with a plug, with two handles on the side for holding it.

Why the alabaster jar is so much worth mentioning

At the time of Mary Magdalene there were the so-called ‘dynastic marriages’ where the bridegroom was anointed by his bride. It is interesting in this respect to know that Mary Magdalene was a member of the Hasmoneans whose family tree goes back to Aaron, the brother of Moses. Jesus’ line of ancestors goes back to King David. This is why he held a high position in society because of his origin.

Once you try to get more detailed information on this topic, you keep coming across the fact that Mary Magdalene was a so-called Hasmonean princess whose social status made her the perfect woman for Jesus to marry.

Only the bride was allowed to anoint the bridegroom

The anointing of Jesus by Mary Magdalene emphasizes this position, as in those days in society only the bride was allowed to anoint the bridegroom. Married women had a vial with oil round their neck in order to give their husband the last anointment after his death. Everybody can decide for themselves why Mary Magdalene went into Jesus’ tomb, and what she did there.

In visual arts Mary Magdalene’s jar was portrayed as ‘the alabaster jar of Bethania’, containing anointing oil for Jesus, but at the same time it was a symbol for the Holy Grail which supposedly contained Jesus’ blood.

The Holy Grail – Mary Magdalene’s womb?

Jugs, pots and cauldrons have always been female symbols in art. Therefore, the containers Mary Magdalene has been portrayed with, stand for the womb where she kept the blood of Christ. Many writings talk about Mary Magdalene bringing the Sangréal, the Holy Blood in her body to the south of France, meaning Jesus’ descendants.

A provocative thesis? As long as we think of a golden chalice when we hear the word Sangreal, this idea will not find space in our heads and hearts.

‘Your spirituality is innate’. A message from Lady Nada

„You may sometimes feel alone and misunderstood with your spirituality, your love for the angels and us, the Ascended Masters. Maybe other people tell you that spiritual messages are just fantasy which are not scientifically accurate, and lack an intellectual foundation.

You may wonder why so many people simply do not allow any spiritual thoughts?

You should accept that the large majority of your fellow people are still stuck in their tight box of thoughts, not seeing any reason to get out of it. Unfortunately in many cases it takes tragic strokes of fate for them to start looking for an escape from their spiritual dead end.

Ever since the messages from KRYON, channelled by Lee Caroll, you know that your spirituality is virtually innate, based in the multi-dimensional layers of your DNA. However, your DNA may keep sending you spiritual impulses, but as long as you are not ready and open for them, you will not be able to perceive them.

Therefore, it is important for you not to feel alone with your spirituality, or feel like an outsider in society, but be part of a network of light workers. Join spiritual groups, take part in spiritual events, and exchange with others about spiritual views, opinions and experiences.

Living your spirituality consciously can also happen on another level. For example, in your mind, or during meditations you can join the energy of other people who also work for the vibrational elevation and the development of the spiritual awareness on earth, no matter whether you personally know them or not.

There are many ways of consciously living and practising spirituality, and more are emerging every day. Because you have come into this life to mark the beginning of the great change in awareness, and to increase the vibrations of planet earth. Do not be insecure, you have already achieved so much! Just go on! I am the Ascended Master Lady Nada. Greetings! I am with you!”

When being HIGHLY SENSITIVE becomes normal

Some people think the topic of being highly sensitive has become a new hype… Others, particularly the ones who are affected themselves, feel relieved that their being different has got a name at last, and that they are not alone. Because most of us do not know that 15 to 20 per cent of people are born highly sensitive (if you would like to know whether you belong to this group, then click here). I dare say that there are a lot more highly sensitive people than we think. However, let us start at the beginning:

In France Elaine N. Aron is considered among experts as the discoverer of high sensitivity. The psychologist already recognized in 1991 that many of her clients, who came for help and advice, showed the same behaviour patterns as herself. So they were obviously in the best hands. In the last years, the knowledge about high sensitivity spread, so that in bookshops you can find shelves filled with books on this topic.

THE HUMAN-EARTHLY VIEW

As in other areas of life, there are also different views on high sensitivity. Let’s start with the human-earthly one (I call it ‘programme one’ [1] or the frog-perspective):

Elaine N. Aron explains high sensitivity by an increased sensitivity to stimuli. This does not only appeal to the sense of hearing, sight and/or touch. The difference is somewhere on the way between the nerve and the brain, or in the brain itself, the processing of information. [2]

Let’s leave this explanation and look at a highly sensitive person from a different perspective, the bird’s-eye view, or ‘programme two’. [3]

THE SPIRITUAL VIEW

Also in the nineties the American medium Lee Carroll received the first messages from the spiritual world that there was a new type of man coming. We are talking about the so-called Indigo children, who show very unusual personality and behaviour patterns, and could only be occasionally be found before.

Many of their characteristics are congruent with ones of highly sensitive people. Indigo children are thin-skinned, sensitive to noise, delicate, feel other people’s conditions, or read their thoughts, are closely connected to the spiritual world, etc. In addition, they mainly do not behave according to expectations, at least to adults’ expectations.

INDIGO CHILDREN HAVE GOT A DIFFERENT LIFE PLAN

It is part of their life plan to be so unadjusted, to push adults out of their comfort zone. This sounds quite provocative, but in this short article I cannot go into detail. Besides their high sensitivity, they undermine old encrusted, and obsolete social norms with their being not adjusted.

Unfortunately the behaviour of Indigo children (as well as Crystal children) is often misinterpreted by adults as negative disturbed behaviour or mischief. Accordingly these children sometimes have to suffer the consequences for the rest of their lives.

The forerunners of these children were already born in the last decades of the 20th century, therefore, it is not surprising that there are already so many highly sensitive adults. I am strongly convinced that many of them show typical characteristics of Indigo children. With their being-different they also challenge their environment, and force it to question what is ‘normal’ and what is not… what should be changed in our society, and what should not…

ENERGETIC-SPIRITUAL BARRIER FOR HIGHLY SENSITIVE PEOPLE

Highly sensitive children and adults need a large degree of understanding, but they also need special tools which pick them up from where they are. Namely, a much higher vibrational level than the rest of the people live in.

Therefore, I am not surprised that the effects of my spiritual tools, such as the energized symbols and essences, are better ‘understood’ and perceived by highly sensitive people than normal sensitive ones. Above all, the angel aura essence Energetic Boundary which provides an energetic barrier in everyday life.

Many highly sensitive people report that they could not survive in today’s world with all its energetic challenges and burdens without this essence. And these burdening energies will not get less in the future, on the contrary.

Why shouldn’t Jesus have been married to Mary Magdalene?

People like to point out that there is no mention in the New Testament that Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene. But equally one can say that there is no mention in the New Testament that he was not married. In the old scripts there is no evidence either that Jesus made an oath or vow to remain unmarried.

To imagine Jesus as a bachelor is both illogical and unbelievable! In those days there were clear laws and rules for men such as Jesus who came from an important bloodline. These rules made it clear that all male descendants had to marry, and have at least two sons. This was also applicable to Jesus of the house of David (1). He was obliged to marry.

In the days of Jesus, Judaism considered marriage to be an important fulfilment of God’s law. Therefore, it was said, “Be fertile and increase.” (2) It is only logical that Jesus also married. If he had remained unmarried, the Pharisees, who were definitely not his friends, could have accused him of a serious lapse, with all its legal consequences.

Why was Mary Magdalene never spoken of

Why was Jesus’s marriage not mentioned throughout the centuries? Why was Mary Magdalene never recorded as his wife?

Would her life have been in danger after Jesus’s crucifixion, if she had lived openly as his wife? It is known that she had to flee to Egypt, from where she set off for the south of France.

Is it the fact that she was only later removed as his wife from the old scripts?

Anyway, it did not, and does not, fit with the sexual morals of the church that Jesus – as ‘Son of God’ – had a physical relationship with a woman!

We shall probably never know exactly why but the consequences continue to be of extreme importance. For the suppression of women and (female) sexuality during the last centuries has had a devastating effect on society. We are shown this fake moral quite clearly these days, where so much sexual suppression and injuries to women are revealed.

‘Your spiritual core is brought with you.’ An Angel message for you

‘Greetings, dear ones! We are the Angels for Change and Transformation. Humans now live in a time that has seen the greatest change ever taken place on the planet Earth. By this, however, we do not mean the sweeping changes in technology and science that you have undergone at a stunning pace during the past decades.

No, we mean the global process of change, which has also been called the transformation process by some. This stage of your developmental history gives you the opportunity to elevate your consciousness, not only through learning and mental training, but also through spiritual growth.

When you take a look around at your personal surroundings and observe them carefully, you will realise that development on the personality level alone will not suffice. After all, humans not only consist of a physical body, feelings, intellect and a personality, but they also possess a spiritual ‘core’.

This spiritual core is brought with you into all your incarnations, and in every incarnation you have the opportunity to become aware of your inherent spirituality and allow it to unfold and make it shine. However, your change in consciousness frequently needs a loud wake-up call from without so that you can embark on your journey toward yourselves and begin to develop your spirituality more completely.

In everyday life, you usually do not have much room for spirituality, because you tend to focus on earthly topics and issues, which keep challenging you.

But this is what it is all about!

Realise that you are in need of strong, external impulses so that your process of change and transformation can be set in motion!

These impulses are not always very convenient. Often they can come along with sorrow, pain, hopelessness or desperation. In many cases, you need a certain degree of suffering in order to make changes.

 But do you still need it?

Or do you embark on the journey towards rethinking, change and transformation by your own choice?

The choice is yours!

Greetings! The Angels are with you and are happy to support you whenever you ask us for help. Many of you are familiar with our symbol.´

What was Mary Magdalene and the seven demons all about

The Gospel of Luke mentions that there were also a few women following Jesus who had been cured of evil spirits and diseases. Mary (called Magdalene) from whom seven demons had come out… (Luke 8,2) This is, at least, the official version of the institutional church. Throughout the centuries, up to now, it has been considered to be the ‘truth’.

One should know that the group of the Essenes, who Jesus was a member of, used certain words as encryptions so that the Romans could not understand their messages and gospels.

The word ‘demon’ must not be understood literally

For example, the term ‘the blind’ was used for people who did not follow ‘the path’. The word ‘lepers’ meant all the people that were not born into, or were excluded from higher society. ‘The poor’ applied to all members of society who were not underprivileged, but held higher ranks, but had to give up all their earthly possessions.

Therefore, the term ‘demons’ is not to be understood literally. At the heyday of Qumran the name Mary (Miriam) was not just a name, but a high title.

Women with this name were in ecclesiastical offices within spiritual societies. They were, for instance, educated in the art of healing, or leading liturgical ceremonies for women.

Judas Iscariot, the seventh demon priest

All Marys were bound to celibacy and were subordinate to the authority of the Supreme Scribe. At the time of Mary Magdalene this was Judas Iscariot who was called the seventh demon priest. Before Mary Magdalene married, she was released from celibacy by the demon priest, which led to the saying that seven demons came out of her. Afterwards she was allowed to have physical contact with her husband, but only according to strict rules. However, this is going to be the topic for another time.

‘When you were born, I was with you!’ An Angel message for you

“Greetings, dear ones! I am Angel Aliel. I accompany many children during and after birth, particularly those who have problems arriving on planet earth. You have to consider that souls need to bring their high energy frequencies down in order to inhabit an earthly body. The difference in the vibration of the light, heavenly spheres, and your earth, is very high. This creates problems for a lot of people here on earth, and it takes some of them years or even decades to manage this process of adjustment.

If a soul decides to incarnate and the mother conceives her child, the soul of the child is briefly in the mother’s body, or at least very close to it, at the time of conception. It takes a soul some months to really connect with the embryo, the baby’s body. As I have mentioned previously, some souls take years to completely become embedded in the child’s body.

In many ways birth is a great challenge for the soul. it gives up its ‘heavenly home’ for a new life, leaving other beloved souls behind. This is often a painful process, especially when they are leaving a dual soul. Sometimes these dual souls have agreed not to incarnate, at the same time, or shortly after one another, and one of them stays behind in the higher dimension. From there it accompanies the other soul through its earthly life.

Nevertheless I would like to emphasize that people often have a much too romantic picture of dual souls. The separation of souls I am talking about, often creates more than two dual souls. This is diffictult to distinguish in your current language. However, the difference is not so important at this point.

Some souls decide to turn around at the last minute, just before or during birth. Maybe because they are scared of this earthly life, maybe because they have arranged this exact scenario with their future parents’ souls before, or maybe because it is part of their karmic mission. Some souls enter this earthly life and leave it again soon afterwards. All these cases spark off deep transformation processes with parents who allow this, who do not suppress stillbirth, but are ready to deal with it. Many people do not know that souls who come to earth as miscarriages or abortions, try to incarnate again, either in the same family or in the surroundings of their parents, or mothers. This should comfort all those who have supposedly lost a child in this way.

When the children grow up, I am on their side, helping and supporting their souls to be embedded in their bodies, because some of them, and also some adults, flee energetically on to another level as soon as difficulties arise. They remain in their physical body, thinking, they can’t really feel themselves properly. Call on me in situations like this because I am always there for you!“

‘I give you strength!’ An Angel message for you

‘Greetings, dear ones! My name is Graviel and I once helped you to get grounded as a newborn and infant, and to get used to the energies of your new planet. You have to know that as ‘souls’ you live in other dimensions with very high frequencies, moving around virtually at the speed of light. Furthermore, you can be at different places at the same time, just as the great masters used to, such as Jesus or Saint Germain. As souls you are detached from time and space because you move in a different dimension of being.

Well, after you have decided to incarnate again, your ‘clothes’, or your ‘vehicle’ is realigned to the new basic frequency as a person. You do not only define your life plan, the place, time and circumstances of your conception and birth, but also the frequency you will use on earth. This may change from time to time in the course of your lifetime. The more spiritually orientated you become, the higher your personal frequency will be, the more earthly and unconscious you live your life, the lower.

This should not be seen as judgement, but as necessity, or fact. Your planet earth vibrates with a certain frequency which can be compared with the average frequency of the entire population of the earth. Since the earth has entered the transformation process, you have been part of it. Your energies are inseparably connected with the energies of the earth.

Your technical achievements have created new, lower energy frequencies, such as nuclear power plants, high-voltage power lines, ultrasonic waves, to name but a few. Yes, even high-voltage power lines can have low frequencies. We are talking about energetic and spiritual vibrations, not technical. In addition there are the energies of the earth’s population. The more unconscious, materialistic or egotistic mankind is, the lower it vibrates. Together with the technical and radioactive devices which cover your earth like a network, a dense, dull and heavy energy is created.

And now imagine when you come from the realms of light, from the world of the unborn into the earthly atmosphere. What a shock! What an impact! What a clash of dense and high heavenly energies! It is not unusual that this shock is saved in you. Many souls have problems with the fact of becoming completely embedded in their physical body for years. It is one of my tasks to help children to get used to the energies of the earth without having to lower their high energies. I am always on your and their side!’

‘I am always with you!’ An Angel message for you

‘Greetings, dear ones! I am Angel Lyrael. It is one of my tasks to provide you with stability, to accompany and support you in times when you do not get enough security from other people, or you cannot cope with the consequences of decisions made.

Before your incarnation you came from another dimension of divine existence. Humans often describe this level as ‘heaven’, a term we will use in this message now. In this dimension you used to exist as multidimensional beings, not knowing time or space, equipped with divine awareness. You communicated with the angels, the ascended masters and other multidimensional beings on one level, exchanging views.

One day you decided to come back to earth, to begin a new incarnation. Together with your higher self, your closest guardian angels and other beings, you discussed your new life plan. You decided which of your potentials you would bring with you, which ones should be strong, buried or hidden. You also decided which challenges or difficulties you would have to face in your new life to make you grow and develop. And, of course, you also decided which people would accompany you, and who you would like to share your experiences and learning tasks with. This naturally included the woman and the man who would become your biological parents.

That is exactly the point. Your parents are souls like you. To become a human person they also pulled the veil of forgetfulness over their awareness along with all the mistakes and weaknesses that make up human life. From a higher level, you made this agreement with them before their incarnation.

Why would I want to tell you all this? Because you should understand that there are no perfect parents. You would not be able to experience important parts of your learning without them. Depending on your plans for this incarnation, the relationship with your parents had to be made either easy or more difficult. Try to look at this fact from a higher point of view. It is my task to protect children in difficult times, when they feel misunderstood, alone, isolated or lonely, and to give them the warmth they cannot get from their parents or other adults. ‘What use is this knowledge to me as an adult?’ I can hear you ask. Well, your soul does not know time and space, and therefore I can help you solve this deficit in hindsight, and transform the blockages and traumas, coming from your childhood. My energy, which is embedded in the angel symbol, can help you do so!’

‘Mankind will be different!’ Message from Ascended Master Aurora.

“Greetings, dear ones! I am Aurora. Many people know me as the ‘Goddess of the Dawn’. They believe I am just an ancient mythical figure. The beings your ancestors used to call gods and goddesses are nothing but forms of awareness, or beings located on a higher level than humans. Likewise, with the Ascended Masters they have also developed into very high levels within your universe from where they can accompany mankind through the process of ascension.

You are challenged to keep questioning the image you have of yourself, and people like you, and to develop new views. Much has been said about this topic, but little has been understood. This is because you have been shaped and influenced by your ancestors, and their knowledge, over a long period of time. It will now take some time for you to learn to improve your perception and widen your horizons.

The children of the New Age have come to confront you with new ways of thinking. I literally mean ‘confront’ because some of them are extremely inconvenient for your society. They protest, they challenge you, they do not fit in, and they publicly proclaim their spirituality, even if many of you do not like it. But keep in mind, this is their task and the reason why they have come back – many of them voluntarily – although they have long left the wheel of reincarnation.

You call them by many names: Indigo children, crystal children, star children, rainbow children and dolphin children. It does not really make sense to categorize them like this even though people are used to labeling everything and, everyone in order to be able to classify things with the human mind. Yes, this is a deeply human characteristic which should be gradually shed.

A lot of children of the New Age live exactly how you would like to.  They love freedom, they are individual, curious, spiritual, jolly and carefree. But sometimes they use drastic means to wake you up and challenge you. Then they are inconvenient, stubborn, undisciplined, cheeky and unmanageable. Aren’t these the same characteristics you would like to live out, but do not dare to?

The children of the New Age need adults of the New Age on their side! Yes, this is you! You, who were born and raised in the awareness of the old age. You, who have worked hard to wake up the spirituality inside of yourself. Believe me, your spirituality can neither be activated by your thinking, nor with any sort of exercises. This does not work.

Your children are wise teachers, even if their souls inhabit a child’s body. Let your children take you by the hand and try to look at life through their eyes. Let them guide you, and believe what they tell you. Take them seriously when they talk about the spiritual world because they know what they are talking about. Provide a protective environment for them where they can feel secure, understood and safe because they will be confronted with great hostilities.

This is what I am asking for, this is my message for you!

Together we will change the world, which you are already doing!

I am Aurora!”
