Mary Magdalene or Dr. Magdalene?
The Mary's brought the teachings of the sacred oils to Southern

name "Mary," simply means "Healer." According to the Dead Sea
Scrolls, if you had this title, you were a healer. The Bible mentions
Mary Magdalene. What is not clear is that she was a woman of wealth
and a close companion of Jesus. In Provence, France, is a cave.
History has it that Mary Magdalene, and other women with the title
of "Mary" taught here for over 30 years. When I visited this cave
and looked at a statue of Mary Magdalene, I felt that I made a
connection with her. Here the teachings are still ingrained within
the walls of the cave. The importance of this healing technique
is to spin the blood through the heart chakra so that one can
achieve the balanced energy point of emerald green. Some people
call this zero point energy. Within this field, one can transcend
space, time, energy and matter. To spin the blood, one has to
create a diamond over the heart. The top part of the diamond pointing
up spins clockwise, and the bottom part, pointing down, spins
counter-clockwise. You merge the two triangles until you create
an energy field that emits emerald green.
The cave is located at Mont
Sainte Baume. The name indicates that the Mary's made poultices
and used essential oils in their healing practices. I feel that
the amygdala gland is named after Mary Magdalene. However, history
tells us that the gland is shaped like an almond, and the Greek
word for almond is "amygdala."
There is a new best-selling
book out called, The Da Vinci Code, that talks about the
essence of the feminine principle and the secret of the Holy Grail.
The book depicts Mary Magdalene as the Holy Grail. I believe that
the Mary's represent the Holy Grail through the feminine principle.
The author of this book, Dan Brown, set out to discover the relationship
between Mary Magdalene and Jesus Christ as recorded in the paintings
of Da Vinci. After looking at all the facts and the History of
the Merovingian Kings of France, Dan Brown came to the conclusion
that there is evidence that Mary Magdalene created a bloodline
that became known as the Holy Grail. Mary Magdalene was from the
tribe of Benjamin, the 12th tribe of Israel. The women of the
12th tribe of Israel were the spiritual healers. They established
a school that honored the teachings of the Magi. These students
were know as the Sisters of the Emerald Fire.
After the crucifixion of
Jesus, the Nazarenes were put into boats and set afloat without
oars, food, or water. Pontius Pilot was their protector. There
is evidence that Pontius Pilot was a cousin of Jesus. After the
crucifixion of Jesus, he became commander of the Roman troops
in Southern France, and assisted these people in arriving in Provence,
where he awarded them land in the swamp, known as the Camargue.
There is a city in the middle of the swamp known as Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer,
named after the sacred women that landed there. They again established
the Magi schools, and the group of women known as the Mary's became
famous through their use of essential oils in healing.
At the end of May, the gypsies
and the people from the Camargue celebrate the landing of the
Mary's at Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, by having a big festival.
The two women standing in
the boat are Mary Jacob and Mary Salome. These statues come from
the church at Sainte Maries-de-la-Mer, Provence, France.
According to John's Gospel,
Mary, the mother of Jesus, had a sister, the wife of Clopas (Jn
19:25). She was the mother of James (known as James the Less or
the Little.) She was the "Mary of James." (Lk 24:10, from where
tradition gives her the French title of "Marie Jacobe". Jacobus
is the Latin work for James.) She had other sons, Joset (or Joseph),
Jude and Simon, as well as some daughters. She was Jesus's aunt.
Mary Salome. She is mentioned
on two occasions in Mark's Gospel by the name of "Salome" (Mk
15:40 and 16:1) Thanks to a parallel text in Matthew (Mt 27:56)
we can identify her as "the mother of the sons of Zebedee." So
we are speaking of James the Greater (the one venerated at Compostela)
and John, the evangelist. Tradition calls her in French "Marie
Salome", Mary Salome.
As you can see in both of
the pictures, the women are definitely holding oil vases. I believe
these Mary's brought the healing knowledge of these oils to southern
France. That is why Provence is famous for growing fields of lavender,
jasmine, rose, and other crops that are harvested for their essential
When I first went to France,
I visited the cave where Mary Magdalene taught for thirty years.
Since then, I have returned several times to the area. It seems
that she did not just teach in the cave, but all over the mountain
known as Mont Sainte Baume. Here, many sacred waters flow from
the sides of the mountain. As you walk this land, you can feel
the spirit that was the very special teaching ground of the Mary's.
Located about 40 kilometers
from Mont Sainte Baume, is Saint-Maximin, where the Basilica of
Saint Mary Magdalene is located. In the crypt of this cathedral
is housed the skull of Mary Magdalene. Just outside the city is
a marker denoting the place where she died. These churches are
known as "Notre Dames." They are designed to honor the feminine
It is time that we honor
the wisdom of the Mary's. Jesus had many female teachers around
Him. He honored the feminine principle. The Knights Templar were
formed to honor and protect the feminine principle. They did this
by building huge cathedrals called "Notre Dames." Here they placed
labyrinths so that people could resonate with the feminine principle.
These labyrinths created an antenna system that restored the feminine
principle within the grid of Mother Earth. These cathedrals create
a healing grid to bring humanity back to the balance point of
emerald green. It is time that we learned the true healing power
of the oils and started resonating to the spinning of the blood
through the heart chakra. It is time we understood the Holy Grail
and the power of the oils.
