I am the one you have called Mary of Magdala. I was, and I am, and I will go through what you call time with that name. However, it is not the only name I have ever had, the same as with you. You have had incarnations with different names, some of them more famous than others.
For a long time you have believed that God was separate from you. God was out there somewhere judging you. This is what your holy ones and your learned ones told you, and you needed to follow all of the rules and behave yourself;
Beloved one, I would speak with you now about your true Being, Who you are and where you have come from. I would speak with you to answer many of the questions you have had about life, why you are here, and how you can see your life and circumstances more holy.
What you will see in your next year and a half or two years—it may extend— is going to be a great awakening. But in order to get there, there are going to be some bumps in the road; at least, that is how they are going to appear at first.
Beloved one, now we are going to have some fun, because I bring a message from the groundhog. For a long, long time you have had legends involving the small four-footed ones of either those who are embodied as pets or the ones who are in the wild and not so tamed.
Beloved one, the first thing when you wake up in the morning, thank the body for being with you, being your servant for that day. Thank the breath as you take it in, before you start thinking about, “What do I have to do today? What’s on the schedule? What day is it? Where do I go? What do I do?”
This year, in these days leading up to the celebration of Christ’s birthday, which truly is every day, allow yourself to feel more and more of the holiness of you, the goodness of you, the joy and the innocence of you, the Light of you.
Beloved one, I have heard you asking, “What is this thing about ascension? Why should I be interested in ascending? I kind of like my life here. I mean, there are a few parts of the body that sometimes speak to me and do not make me feel exactly comfortable, but I like the physical life.
Beloved one, as you have been asking to know what may be around the corner in your new year, we will set out for you various parameters of so-called prediction. As I have said to you many times, I do not prophesy, because as soon as I put it out there, you turn around and change it. You are very good at doing that. You look at what has been said or prophesied and you say, “Oh, well, I think I can improve on that.” Then you set about changing things. (Smile)
Beloved one, when I gave forth what is now known as The Lord’s Prayer, it was to be an example, a framework upon which you would weave your own prayer. I began it with Our Father, for it was in the day and time when the father was understood to be the head of the household.
