It is said that as Yeshua gave up his spirit, an earthquake shook the ground and caused the temple Veil to rip in half from top to bottom:
"At that moment the Veil in the sanctuary of the Temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. The earth shook, rocks split apart, and tombs opened. The bodies of many godly men and women who had died were raised from the dead. They left the cemetery after Jesus’ resurrection, went into the holy city of Jerusalem, and appeared to many people." (Matthew 27:51-53)
The veil that Matthew speaks about symbolized a barrier between heaven and earth, behind which divine secrets were kept, known only to God. In the Temples, the Holy was separated from the Holy of Holies.
The prohibitive function of the veil placed restrictions upon worship. Worshipers in the old covenant were restricted in their access to God in the temple, and could not approach him at any time they chose. Only a high priest who was ritually pure and without defect could approach God or the objects directly related to worshiping him without being put to death.
Matthew speaks of Yeshua´s death as that of an innocent prophet who inaugurated the restoration of all things.
The Veil in the Temple that was torn in two means that there is no longer a physical barrier to God – Goddess. The angelic guardians that were summoned to protect this veil are disarmed, and we are blessed with a reentry into the Edenic presence of the Mother – Father.
As the Veil was torn in two, we are also tearing the internal veil of our inner temple to restore our direct relationship to the Mother – Father. Matthew states that these Godly Men and Women who were raised from the dead went into the Holy City of Jerusalem and appeared to many people. Mary Magdalene in her Ministry in France taught that Jerusalem was not a physical space, but an inner dwelling. As we awaken our inner Jerusalem, we awaken our ability to cultivate a relationship with these saintly men and women from different timelines and life times. A veil, a door was opened for us to receive direct guidance by the light beings and Holy ones.
Before the sun had even begun to rise, Mary Magdalene was the first to arrive Sunday morning to care for the body of her Beloved. The tomb was empty and Yeshua´s Body was gone. Mary Magdalene ran to tell the disciples. After hearing this news, Peter and John came to see the empty tomb for themselves. The apostles left, but Mary stayed behind in prayer. As she was weeping she looked into the tomb and saw two angels sitting where her Beloved´s Body had been so carefully laid. “Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou?” Mary Magdalene thought someone else was speaking to her and asked: “Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.”
Then Mary Magdalene heard a single word, her own name. “Mary.” It was her Beloved speaking to her. She ran to embrace him and he said “touch me not,”.
Here stood Mary, a woman, not a credible witness according to Jewish Law in that moment of history. Yet, Yeshua not only first appears to Mary, but also to several other women who also had come to care for the Yeshua´s body. Before appearing to Peter or any of the other apostles, Yeshua first appears to women.
In a world where women were looked down upon and not valued, Yeshua saw the faith and devotion given to him by these women. In the darkest of moments these women stayed by his side, supporting him, caring for him, and also burying him. These women were the first to see His Celestial Light.
Devotion, Compassion, Faith, Support, Unconditional Love, Forgiveness...how Yeshua valued these qualities, these expressions of the Divine Feminine.
It is time to empty ourselves from the notion of separation and allow the pure Celestial Light of Christ on this powerful day to be poured into our hearts. Let us allow ourselves to receive Yeshua´s Grace through his Sacred Right. Let us remember that today we are reminded of our Own Birth in the Light .
Let us take this day that was chosen to remember Yeshua´s brutal death on the cross in Calvary. What can this teach us today? We are no longer brutally killed for our beliefs, and can we be as Yeshua? Can we believe so much in the Power of the Soul, in the awakening of the soul, in the power of humanity when we are awakened? Can this be our own Passion? Can we commit to allowing time for ourselves so that we may have direct access to the Abwoon? And can we nurture our sacred partnership with the Divine?
