MOTHER MARY: Unconditional Love and Faith: Mother to Jesus of Nazareth and known as the virgin Mary, Queen of Angels, Miriam or Maryam, she is pure unconditional mother love. She was promised to Joseph as a young teen; but before they could marry, the Archangel Gabriel came to Mary and told her she was carrying a child. Although she faced an extraordinary situation, Mary had great faith in her role on Earth and married Joseph. Following signs and the guidance from her visions and never wavering in her beliefs, with faith in a divine plan, Mary watched her son grow to be a great teacher and later be tortured and crucified. She supported his work even though she knew his fate, and after his death, she continued to spread his message of love. She was judged and chastised as a whore and a liar in regard to the virgin birth, and it was not until the beginning of the fifth century, after the Council of Ephesus, that she became important to the Christian Church. When she was introduced to the Americas, Mary transformed the religious landscape and quickly melded into the local culture replacing their goddesses. She is worshiped and adored to this day, as a deity in her own right, with rituals, processions, and festivities all around the world.
Mother Mary is innocent, pure love, which is inclusive, unconditional, and without judgement or jealousy. She is surrender, gentleness, comfort, and peace. Mary supports and understands us as she can relate to our human pain and suffering. She offers protective and soothing energy as she loves us unconditionally for all eternity.
Mother Mary’s Message: When you need assurance and faith, and your heart needs strengthening from all you have suffered, be held in the energy of perfect, unconditional motherly love. Believe in yourself and your dreams. When you feel as though you will never reach the goal, remember to have faith, even faith the size of a mustard seed, and you will see it manifested. Have faith in yourself and the eternal love of the Divine.
Your visions and thoughts have power to create and heal, to restore you to wholeness of mind, body and soul. Remember, inner healing does not have to be a painful and tiresome experience. Honor your feelings and begin your transformation by realizing what you need to let go of. Once you do let go, fill that empty space with something else. Do not give attention to the things you don’t desire; instead, put all your attention into that which you do desire. Have faith, it will come to pass. It is done!!
