I realize that I have not written many blogs in the past few months; my most recent one was shared on July 22nd – the Feast Day of Mary Magdalene.
What can I say?
I feel very grateful that during these past months I was able to travel out of lockdown to visit my elder parents in NYC, spend some amazing time with my son before he left for college, and of course, deepen my connection with my beloved Mary Magdalene, whom I know as Maggie. I write this blog from my parents’ home in NYC – using my dad’s old office which I am now converting into my new office. 🙂
Retreat with Maggie
Many of you who have been following my posts for some time already know that in the past several months I have been feeling more and more inspired to go deeper with the teachings of Mary Magdalene. I want to truly experience her – not from a theoretical perspective but in a way that helps me more fully claim my birthright of peace, joy, and love – which I know is there for all of us.
For the past month, I have allowed myself to be on retreat with Maggie- waking up daily with her in mind, asking her to guide me, sharing with her what is on my heart, deeply listening to her, and writing and journaling about her messages- which always comfort, strengthen, and soothe me. I have also been inspired to draw many drawings of Maggie.
Here is a recent drawing that I call the Gratitude Heart of Maggie that I framed and shared with my son as a gift for his next adventure – starting college. 🙂
Here’s a message that I received from Maggie when I asked her how I could move through some heavy emotions. For many of us, as we adjust to life within the Corona pandemic and witness much suffering in so many shapes and forms, sometimes just facing the day can feel challenging. I was having one of those days and this is what I heard her say to me:
Be utterly gentle with yourself. Be easy, gentle, caring, and mindful. Don’t be afraid of your feelings. They have no power over you when you accept and honor them. Be with your feelings and allow me to be with you. I am here to comfort all your tears and shine away all your fears.
Feelings are simply helpful indicators like a light on the car dashboard. The real problem lies within the mind that has forgotten its True Self and imagines itself to be something that it never was and never can be – a limited personality self that can feel trapped in time and space among other limited personality selves.
If you allow me to be with you, we can look inside your mind together. You are safe, little one.
I am with you. I am here to show you the infinite light, love, and joy that remains hidden beneath all the tangled cobwebs of the ego mind.
I am with you to guide you each step of the way.
I love you!
Merging with Maggie
I am learning to lean on Maggie for all my daily decisions. Many times, I feel myself merge with Maggie – so where Seema ends, and Maggie begins is blurred. I can hear her deep and sweet laughter in my ears – as if she is saying:
I am you and you are me because there is no separation between the waves of the ocean. We are all one of the same ocean, the same sky, the same heart. One mind joined forever and forever. Until the end of time.
My current project
Currently, Maggie is inspiring me to create Wisdom Heart Maggie cards with a companion book which will involve using my drawings and writings of Maggie to share her healing messages.
I feel excited and at the same time very peaceful because there is no desire to control or make anything happen. Just being with Maggie – her unconditional love and wise guidance – is truly enough.
Maggie is inspiring me to share about a new service I am offering so you too can allow her wisdom to soothe, comfort, and inspire you wherever you are.
Wisdom Heart Readings with Maggie
If you feel inspired by Mary Magdalene, her life, and her teachings and want to strengthen your spiritual practice in a way that is practical, grounded, and helpful to your daily life, I would love to invite you to join me for a personalized reading with Maggie. We will join via zoom or phone to do the following:
- Share what is on your heart and where you feel you need some guidance

I love how Maggie can shine away whatever doubts, worries, or confusion I may face.

I can think of no more worthy way for us to spend our time, so I am so happy to invite you to join me for a reading.
