Edgar Cayce on Mary Magdalene

In my post on Leonardo and the Real Mary Magdalene I have a link to an article which references Edgar Cayce's reading on Mary Magdalene. Since it makes for interesting reading, particularly Cayce's claim that there was no sexual relationship, I am including it in more detail below:

"Q: Please describe the personal appearance of the body [of Mary Magdalene] at that time.

"A: This is well drawn by Da Vinci, as well as in that by Blum [Blaum?] - The Magdalene. A body five feet four inches (5'4") in height, weight a hundred and twenty-one (121) pounds - in the general. Hair almost red. The eyes were blue. The features were those impelled both from the Grecian and Jewish ancestry." (295-8)

According to Cayce's readings, the soul that was Mary Magdalene (#295 in the Cayce files) began her incarnations in this world as the princess Amliea in Atlantis, with a talent for maintaining the life force in physical bodies through magnetic treatments, presumably using the famed Atlantean crystal. In one case, she actually purified a friend's body of possession-like influences. As a result of being highborn and talented, she experienced the pomp and ceremony that came with such. But according to the Sleeping Prophet's reading, she did not handle the recognition well, becoming discontented with the people to the point that she began acting against them and their ways, taking names and holding grudges. She had the magic within her to channel the higher forces into the Earth realms yet a personality that tended toward contention and strife against any who opposed her.

In her second major incarnation, men were now ruling, unlike Atlantean times when women ruled. She was the temple musician Islta in Egypt during the time of the high priest Ra Ta (an incarnation of Edgar Cayce's soul). When the high priest was banished for his misdeeds, she counseled Pharaoh to reinstate the priest for the sake of the higher good for all. Once Ra Ta was restored, she continued her temple musician duties, which again allowed her to channel the Creative Forces to improve the vibrations in human bodies and minds. The sleeping Cayce said that many of her compositions will be recovered when the "yet uncovered" pyramids are found.

In the Egyptian incarnation, she developed a distrust of men. Also, her sense of discontent with this world and most people increased.

The next significant incarnation was as Mary Magdalene. Cayce's reading of the Akashic Record says that she did indeed become a courtesan in the Roman courts and a harlot among the men of her people. Cayce's readings also identify her as the Mary who was the sister of Martha and Lazarus and the woman who, caught in adultery and condemned to be stoned, was let go by Jesus' statement: "Let him who is without sin cast the first stone."

Cayce says that she was 22 when Jesus raised her brother from the tomb, causing many changes within her. Cayce goes on to explain that she and others found it strange to share life with her recently deceased brother, who once again lived among them. When she was 23, the readings state that "Christ cleansed her from seven devils: avarice, hate, self-indulgence, and those of the kindred selfishnesses; hopelessness and blasphemy."

She joined with Mary, the mother of Jesus, in the disciple John's household, which also included Elois (sister of the Mary that was the mother of John and James). There were also many visits from several of the disciples. Sadly, Martha, Lazarus, and James "the Lesser" (John's brother) had all been killed in the first wave of Roman crackdowns on followers of Jesus Christ. Cayce's readings say that the officials felt that Lazarus had to be killed because he was a walking reminder of Christ's miracles.

Cayce says that, like her brother, Mary Magdalene became a kind of "monument, as a memorial, to the activity of the Christ life upon the life of a soul" in this world because she had been a "sinner" and was purified and energized to a new way of thinking and acting. Her presence was a blessing to many, including Romans who had known her before and after the cleansing.

This little household lived in John's summer home on Lake Gennesaret, but the increasing crackdowns forced them to move north to Ephesus, and there they remained until their deaths.

When asked if Mary Magdalene had been Jesus' lover, Cayce clearly replied that she had not. Jesus wanted to be, and was, "her savior," not her lover. But this lover idea is sure selling a lot of books and resulted in a major motion picture.

The idea of that the progeny of Mary Magdalene and Jesus are living today fits nicely within our growing interest in the genetic code and its impact on future generations. Blood lines have always been a fascination for humans. But, as exciting as it may be to think that Jesus's heirs may be living quietly in Europe, it is not true according to Cayce's reading of the Akashic records.

After her life as Mary Magdalene, her next major incarnation picked up on her royal birth in Atlantis. This time she was the daughter of the last of the Louises, Louis XVI of France. Again she was facing mounting contention from the people ruled by her family. When Louis resigned and the rebellion began, she escaped the fate of the rest of her family by fleeing with great stealth to Austria and changing her name to Marie Augusta.

In her soul's next incarnation, she joined with Edgar Cayce's little band of visionaries to help build the Association for Research and Enlightenment. Her name was Mildred Davis. Her special healing talents were once again apparent, as the "sleeping" Cayce selected her to be among the seven initial members of the Glad Helpers Prayer Group. Edgar Cayce once had a dream about her in which she announced to everyone in the group that she was going to foretell what the next Cayce reading would say!

In this incarnation, the readings said that she needed to overcome her mistrust of men and her contentious spirit against people with different opinions. He also encouraged her to hold on to her deep understanding of the importance of not condemning self, which Jesus planted in her when he said, "Neither do I condemn thee."

  2. Late in life, Mildred Davis married (I think). She had two daughters. One was born in Oklahoma City, OK. Does anyone know the names of her husband and daughters or where she is buried?

  3. I am so surprised even saddened that Edgar Cayce did not know that Jesus was and remains married to Mary Magdalene. She is the Bride in Revelation 21 as He is the Bridegroom of the past and of the Present for God is One yet
    both He and She who created humankind in God's image and likeness.

    1. Mary Magdalene returned as Aimee Semple McPherson, founder of the Foursquare Gospel Church, she died in 1944 and ascended mid 1980s. She is now called Holy Aimee, twin flame of Jesus Christ and literally his bride in heaven. Read her biography by Daniel Mark Epstein, "Sister Aimee," she was one of the greatest personalities of the twentieth century.

    3. Yes. They were married. Had children, as well. That is Their Marriage mentioned in the Bible, where Jesus turned the water into Wine. :-)

  4. Jesus Christ came to this earth for one reason, and it was not to live in the flesh. He came that we might have a way back to the Father God. He is the way the truth and the light.He came for that explicit reason. The Fathers' plan for Jesus did not include marriage. He came to show our souls the way back to God.

    2. Thanks for stating this..it does ring true, as he had little time for romance and marriage, even if it were so...he returned to his area I think at age 30,after studying and practicing in The Orient and India, and was crucified at 33, then after resurrecting his form, he returned to the spiritual realms...his Home. How did he have time to set up a household and support a wife while do this amazing mission in three years, and travelling all over? Duh...does anyone think logically, anymore?!

  5. I agree with Sandylou, as we already know how to have sex and reproduce and have romance..he did not come to model those things, or give us a better way to do them. He came to cut the cords of the flesh which bind us.

  7. What I know about Jesus. First, I was his disciple, Bartholomew. Since I began facilitating Reiki-hands-on-healing in 1987, Jesus has continually appeared to me in the Spirit.Jesus was and is a bestowal son to Earth. A bestowal Being makes an agreement before incarnation not to have a sexual life. Hence he did not marry. Also the story that Jesus died on a cross is a fabrication. He did a three day initiation during which time he transmuted the physical body and "resurrected" the "lightbody". What Edgar Cayce says about Mary Magdalene rings true for me, as I am also visionary and have clairalience, knowing. www.isismoonpublishing.com
