Creating The Future


Mary Magdalene's January Message


A Message from Mary Magdalene

Transmitted on January 15, 2011 through Mercedes Kirkel


Blessings Dear One,


This is Mary Magdalene who is coming to you again to bring you wisdom and help.


Your new year has begun and many of you are wondering about what is in store for you at this time.  Many of you have been thinking about the year 2012, having heard about this for so long as a time of great change on Earth.  And you are wondering, now that 2011 has arrived, if this will indeed manifest in the ways that you have heard about or envisioned.


It is true that this is a very special time that has been empowered for great change and growth spiritually, for your earth and for all the people on the earth.  It is also true that you have free will on your planet, and that the future is not fixed.  So both of these things are at play at this time.  Your earth is in the process of moving into a galactic alignment that carries immense power and opportunity.  This is a scientific fact, though many of your scientists are not aware of it or openly acknowledging it.  This kind of alignment has not happened for a very long time on earth, and so your scientists are not familiar with it as a phenomenon.  Your science has also not advanced yet to the point where most scientists understand and accept the inherent link between the physical and the spiritual.  This will change in the future, with the field of physics leading the way, as your scientists come to understand that there is no division between science and spirituality. 


Eventually your scientists will understand that spirituality is senior to physics, as you are all creating your reality out of your spiritual consciousness and awakeness.  The third dimension, with all of its physical “laws,” is simply a reflection of the consciousness of those existing in this dimension.  If their consciousness was elevated to a higher level, they would be experiencing a different reality with different “laws.”  Indeed, some of you already are experiencing this, at least to some extent or some of the time.  Most of you who are reading this are experiencing this, or are at least open to the possibility of this being the case.  The majority of people who are spiritually aware and interested at this time are experiencing a certain amount of sliding between the dimensions, moving between the third, fourth, fifth, and even sixth dimensional consciousness for varying periods of time.  This is natural as you begin to grow beyond your current level of consciousness, but are not yet stabilized in the higher dimensions.


So all of this growth and change amongst individuals is being reflected in your world.  Is it not true that you are not the same being that you were a year ago, or five years ago, or twenty years ago?  When you reflect on that, you can see your change and growth.  Many of you are growing enormously, making such excellent use of the spiritual support being offered now.  We of the higher realms are greatly pleased by this.  You see, the outcome of this time period has never been fixed.  Many of you chose to come at this time, a choice that we are extremely grateful to you for and commend you for your great dedication and service in this regard.  Yet, you also have taken on the limitations you agreed to at a soul level, and so you have each had a “piece of the puzzle” in the great and complex whole of this shift into higher consciousness that is your potential and gateway at this time.  You all have your individual work to do, which in totality adds up to the whole that will make this possible.  And the more that each of you choose to do this work and fulfill your Divine intentions in this lifetime, the more that the whole is freed up to make the shift that is possible.


Ultimately you are all determining, as a group of individuals, what the future will be.  It is part of the interesting dynamic at this time.  You are all operating as individuals, which is your nature in the third dimension.  But as you shift into the fourth and fifth dimension, your effect becomes more and more one of a group, a unified field of individuals.  It is something like your understanding in physics of matter being both of the nature of waves and particles.  Particles, in and of themselves, are not that powerful or effective.  But when they unite in their motion into waves, then they are transformed into something with great potential power.


It appears to us that because of your growth and the continued commitment on the part of so many of you to your spiritual upliftment, that the outcome of the events in the next few years may well be much better, more easeful and harmonious and peaceful, than many predictions are suggesting.  First, be aware that 2012 is simply a marker when certain astronomical bodies are aligning, which will definitely have an affect.  But that affect has already begun, and you are already being influenced by it.  It will simply be at its zenith at 2012.  And this is not the only date that will be significant.  You are in a window of time, that truly started back in the mid-twentieth century, that is reaching it’s peak in terms of certain dates being an activation and an initiation, or a doorway, into a new era.


So this is a wonderful time in which you are living, and you chose to be here because it contains such power for transformation and spiritual growth.  Many of you do not remember making that choice, but it is so nonetheless.  And we wish to remind you that while this is a very special and wonderful time, it will also have its challenges for many of you, because that is the way that most beings grow in the third dimension.  As you stabilize more and more in higher dimensions, you will not require such challenges to grow.  And some of you are already seeing a new kind of stability and harmony in your life, without the continual cycles of ups and downs, difficulties and joys.  That is a sign that you are moving beyond the level of duality that is a hallmark of the third dimension.


Know, also, that you have choice, even in the midst of whatever is arising.  You have the choice to trust and open to your experience fully.  This is an essential aspect of receiving all as Divine.  Do not let your spiritual ideas turn into a form of denial of your reality.  Then you are denying God.  If you are experiencing hardship, open fully to the experience of it, in your heart and your body, as well as your mind.  Open to it as your present form of relationship with God, and ask God for help if you need help.  This one thing will help most of you more than anything else.  Most of you are relatively advanced in your spiritual understanding and ideas.  It is your form of relating to your experience, however, that is holding you back.  Your ideas are not sufficient, in and of themselves, to carry you to the higher ground you seek.  You must equalize your awareness and understanding with what you actually do.  And for many of you, that means strengthening your feeling engagement with experience, learning to open to your experience and be with it fully, not retract away from it into your ideas, even spiritual ideas.


The more you do this process of fully engaging, through feeling, your experience – and of course it’s most important to do this in the arenas where you’re resisting your experience, because you think it will be painful – the more it will lead you to an open-hearted integration of the spiritual concepts you already embrace, such as gratitude, forgiveness, love, blessing, and joy.


It is somewhat mysterious, and perhaps difficult to understand, and even more difficult to trust, that in this third dimension the path to joy is through embracing pain.  Not reacting to it, either through avoidance or dramatizing, but deeply opening to it and finding God through that opening.   This is the quickest way to release the tether that holds you to this reality.  Whatever you resist persists.  In the case of the third dimension, it is your resistance to feeling pain that is causing this reality to persist more than anything else.  There are endless forms of manifesting this resistance, but it all boils down to the same thing.  If you are resisting it through your spiritual ideas, this is just as powerfully holding this reality in place as resisting it through alcohol or drugs.


Marry your spiritual understanding with the power of opening through feeling.  This is the great doorway and opportunity at this time, which corresponds with the power available through the alignments and openings of your physical reality.  The more of you that do this, the more you will create the future of your dreams, a future of higher consciousness, love, caring for all, and manifestation based on spiritual alignment and magnificence.  It is all possible, and eventually will come to pass, whether now or in the future.  You are already bending reality to this outcome, and will continue to do so as your spiritual power grows.  And we of the higher dimensions are supporting you in this, and we celebrate every advance you make.  We love you and are united with you in our commitment to the growth in light and love for all.


In love and embrace of you and All,

I AM Mary Magdalene
