My First Initiation With Mary
On August 15, 1998 I went to the House of Mary in Epheseus, Turkey while on a Total Solar Eclipse and Goddess sites tour.
As was normal for me, I liked to do a meditation and connect with the energy of the sacred and ancient spots we visited in Turkey.
As I sat in the front left corner of her house, I closed my eyes and tears began streaming down my face. I was not sobbing nor did I feel a great deal of emotion. Yet the steady stream of tears became like rivers of water, soaking my clothes.
I imagine it looked much like the common Catholic picture of “Our Lady of Sorrow” with the tears pouring out of Mother Mary’s eyes.
In my mind’s eye I saw a beam of white light pour down in front of me. I basked in it.
It was warm and tender yet there was a tingling and cooling sensation simultaneously. I was shown pale blue robes around that and around me, and with each color of light a different sensation was felt.
It was gentle, light and comforting. I looked more closely face appeared. It was Mother Mary.
I asked her “Why are was crying?”
She told me that she cried tears of joy when people came to visit, for she knew that this would be a place that others would connect with “Spirit.” She also cried for those who did not connect.
I came out and sat in a café waiting for our tour group to appear. My whole body was trembling and waves of shudders moved through me one after another. I had received such a powerful influx of energy, that it took me hours to assimilate it. Even the next day I felt as though there was a live wire running through me. Everything seemed magnified.
Mother Mary Initiation for the Venus Transit of 2004
On June 8th, 2004, I listened to an invocation and meditation for the Transit of Venus.
Astronomically, this was the day that the planet Venus appeared to move across the face of the Sun for the first time since the 19th Century.
Symbolically, the feminine energy of the planet Venus was revealing itself as she transited the masculine energy of the Sun.
During this extraordinary event, the fiery backdrop of the Sun’s face served as a glowing frame for Venus, focusing our attention on her enlightened journey.
Some astrologers consider Venus the feminine God presence.
I lay down on my office floor near my computer and proceeded to relax and breathe.
The intention of the invocation was to bring a greater feminine presence onto the Earth, as this was a time for heart-opening, and for an uplifting light to appear on the planet which would greatly affect the “collective consciousness.”
As I listened to the inviting, calming and soothing words, the meditation mentioned Mary.
In my mind’s eye (or was it?), a translucent, pale blue-and-white diamond appeared in the room.
As it lighted down about me, I noticed gold flecks in it.
The pyramid enveloped me, then seeped into my body deeply as I quivered with this magnificent presence.
Next, this vibrating flow of light energy flowed outwards and inwards. It pulsated repeatedly like this for ten minutes inwards and outwards, allowing me to assimilate it.
The shimmery colors gave me tingles as each pulse moved through my body, so I could sense it as it flowed to my core, and then back out to the outer reaches of my aura (as I imagined it would be).
It felt like it stopped at the surface of my skin, and then the pulsating diamond – like a living, breathing heart-diamond – began to move inwards again.
I sat up and typed at my computer, allowing Mary to speak through me.
She confirmed that this was indeed her energy, and if I chose, we could work together to bring a greater feminine presence onto the Earth.
I was a little stunned that this magnificent power had just coursed through my body.
Clearly, I had received an initiation.
I was not quite sure what to do with the information at that time, but soon, very soon, I would learn much more.
