The full moon is a time to feel content and complete (well, if you think about it from the moon’s perspective, the moon is always, always full; oh, beloved friend, She is so full!). Now is a good time as any to set foot upon the grass and then claim absolute and definitive ecstatic union with the universe.
I walk to the top of Mount Soledad where there is a veterans memorial. I kick off my shoes and stand in my bare feet and look out over the city, the shore, and the sea. I quietly say, “I claim absolute and definitive ecstatic union with the universe!” Whether or not my ego or mind or society or family or anyone thinks this is true does not matter. What matters is the internal proclamation. Proclaiming absolute and definitive ecstatic union with the universe feels good. And it even smells and tastes good when the sensory system is tuned up.
So it may seem the distracted world is mired in conflict and distress. Now, take this quiet morning to contemplate Yeshua’s Beloved Magdalen describing this as “the beginning of the end of time,” let us pause! Pause is praise! Let us listen! “the beginning of the end of time” is a phrase used by Mary Magdalen in her The Magdalen Manuscript, channeled by Tom Kenyon and written with Judi Sion. Slowly contemplate “the beginning of the end of time.” I understand the “beginning of the end of time” not as a statement warning us of the end of human existence. Whether human extinction is on the horizon or not is not the point of this phrase. The “beginning of the end of time” refers to a state of consciousness: if you are one of the fortunate beings who reads and adores The Magdalen Manuscript, you will be entering your consciousness into the beloved state of Timelessness.
Whatever is in your immediate reality right now, listen for something in the distance. Stay very still within your being, and listen for as long as is comfortable for you. After listening to that very faint, very distant sound for a few moments or however long you wish, consciously create that amount of space between you and whatever it is that is happening in your here and now reality. However, the trick is to remain absolutely engaged in your here and now reality as well, but engage that reality with SPACE not with entanglement. In other words, do not space out or check out of reality; engage your reality with your sensitivity to the vast space of the unified field of quantum reality.
The next step is to remain kindly welcoming this space around you, remain engaged in your here and now activity or conflict, but then allow that space to penetrate your senses. Space within the sense of smell. Space within the sense of taste. Space within the sense of sound. Space within the sense of silence. Space within the sense of seeing. In other words, do not ignore, reject, or dismiss that distant sound you were focusing on, just add more space on top of your sensory engagement with it. Continue sitting with this process for as long as you wish and sense your own divinity filling that space and expanding it.
Now, Dream Space
After reading The Magdalena Manuscript, I had an ecstatic dream on full moon night. Whales were making love. Deep down, sea creatures merged in intimacy in their own quiet corner of the sea. At the moment of their ecstatic union, they sprouted enormous wings out of their backs. Whale wings with enormous feathers, feathers as delicate as those of the silk moth, yet so strong and invincible as to be able to lift a whale. The whale couple swam to the surface of the ocean and then together they took flight. Flying whales with sea water cascading off their shimmering feathers as they flew through the air. When I woke from that dream back into this human dream, my laughter and tears shook the bed and soaked the blankets. I imagined my husband was here, and he turned to me and asked, are you okay? I imagined that I said to him, we are whales with wings; our wings can manage this heavy load; in fact, the load is not really that heavy. We are light. We are light. We are whales of light, and we can fly.
Reprogram the Subconscious Mind
During the full moon, it is good practice to cleanse the subconscious mind, and the best way to do this is meditation.
Here is a simple technique Yogi Bhajan taught: Inhale and hold the breath and mentally repeat: I am beautiful. I am bountiful. I am blissful. Exhale and hold the breath out and repeat: Excel. Excel. Fearless. Continue this pattern for three minutes. Then rest.
While you rest, imagine Mary Magdalen gently stroking your forehead. Tenderly as a Mother or as a Lover, whichever you feel you need now.
In a quiet voice, she asks you to repeat after her these words:
I claim the royal divinity of my soul. I accept the royal divinity of my soul. I dwell in the royal divinity of my soul.
I claim the royal divinity of my courage. I accept the royal divinity of my courage. I dwell in the royal divinity of my courage.
I claim the royal divinity of my compassion. I accept the royal divinity of my compassion. I dwell in the royal divinity of my compassion.
Yogis say that a person become whatever she repeats over and over. What you repeat, you shall become. So repeatedly proclaim, “I am divine.”
Gaze at the moon. Dwell in divine consciousness.
