Gaia's Love for You
a message from Mary (Magdeline)

Dear Friends,

Below is a short but very loving message from Mary. I would suggest sitting in heart mediation with the energy behind the words, rather than trying to understand it with the mind.


I have the great honor to create two concerts this June with cellist and 2010 Grammy Award (Best New Age Album) winner David Darling in Toronto and Guelph. I will also offer Private Healing Sessions in both towns while I am there. For tickets and session appointment times see the Calendar page.

I will also be presenting the 2nd of a series of workshops on Sound & Healing in Sarasota Florida June 27, followed by Private Sessions.

As always, I offer Private Sessions by phone when I'm home in Michigan. And I'll be creating the music for Interfaith's Celebration Service on May 23rd in Ann Arbor, followed by a workshop on using Tibetan Bowls and your own voice for Healing.

New Meditation (CD or mp3)

The most recent phone meditation, Holding the Earth, Holding Ourselves is now available as a free mp3 or CD. Through a series of meditations, it explores and leads you inot a new quality of relationship with the Earth and Gaia, and a new way of grounding.

I have received many emails from people stating that they find themselves to be more grounded and simply 'in a new place' with their lives overall. This feedback is from people who were on the phone during the meditation as well as from those who have purchased the edited CD or downloaded the free mp3 of the meditation and listened to it.

You can read more, purchase or download this meditation on the
Meditation CDs page of my website. I have added a sound healing "Innocence" to the meditation. It is dedicated to a dear friend, Sarah Heberlein, who passed from the Earth this spring.

And now, the message from Mary, received Saturday eve, May 15, 2010

from Mary

The physical form you know as the Earth is changing. Just as your consciousness arises and turns again into the Light of Love, so too does the mind of Gaia feel the warming return of this same Light.

And she yearns to stretch out her arms in the sweetest embrace of those souls whose presence she again senses. Yet she lies, for the most part, as still as possible, so as to not disturb those who yet slumber upon her.

Such a welcome homecoming she feels all around her body, and all around the star system in which she moves. Even the plants and animals sense the joy that is stirring within her heart. The pulsation of this same heart races from time to time, hearing the far off yet ever nearing calls of others like herself.

For just as she laid her consciousness within the Pure Energy of Nature, in order to become your planet, the Earth, so too did a myriad of other beings decide to express themselves into your form as planets, stars, comets and yes, even other solid phenomena.

And so is it not understandable that the first to awaken are the first to have taken form? And yet these same ones are the very bedrock, literally, of your human world.

As you pass through this time, the next several months, notice the small nudges, clues and insights you receive. Many of these will be coming not from the heavenly upper dimensional spirit guides. Rather, your physical form is lovingly receiving messages from Gaia's own body, the Earth.


It is Gaia's active love of other beings which created the atmosphere around the Earth. That atmosphere holds the oxygen and moisture that sustains all life upon her. And with each breath you are reminded of her love for you. With each breath you fill your bodies with the energies of her love for you. And with each breath we feel this love warming and filling our own being, even though we have not form within the Earth at this time.


Compassion is abundant. Forgiveness is your birthright. Love is your true nature.


We who travel on the other side travel with you. You are never alone. You are loved beyond words and your deeds are appreciated beyond measure.

May each of you be so blessed, as you will allow yourself to receive it now.

-Mary (Magdalene)

I am very good at helping to lift off heavy energies and get chronic issues to begin to move. Any energy released goes home, to follow its own growth and evolution. This means that what is released does not return. And it means that those energies with awareness know that I mean to help them. In this way your agreement to "keep them safe" is brought to completion, because they are released with honor and respect onto their next step. This is true of all energies, big or small, that your soul and body are ready to release.

Remember that any energy in your body or aura that is not in time or in tune with you will cause a slow, steady draining of your vitality. This leads to larger issues arising in the physical body, emotional overwhelm, and psychic cloudiness. A complete "deep cleaning" regularly can help you find, address, and release what is no longer yours to carry. This frees you up to engage fully with your own life's issues. (and yes, we can address life issues as well in the session).

A recording is made of the session. When you listen to the recording your guides and the healing angels will return to continue to help your personal inner understanding and release continue. Sessions are $185 and last about an hour. Please be in touch with me to secure an appointment time. or 734-330-3997.
