Mary Kathryn shortens to Mary Kate which eventually becomes MK loop back just a tick to Mary and at 29 my first name finally becomes pleasant exiting your lips.
Where the heck did this DUH come from and why? Sometimes I put that necklace on and look at myself in the mirror and wonder who she is. When he was alive it was everyday, always, at least once a day and now it sits in the Creative Womb of the Sacred Basement life asked me to inhabit once again. Waiting.
I am grateful for a Family who joyfully chooses to See me through even my most difficult days. But no, I never imagined needing to live here again so it came as a shock to me when I heard my Heart beckon me out of the Home I was making with my sweet Bub.
Mary Magduh is Alchemy, the Sacred Art of Transfiguration.
"Are you sure you want to choose something so...Catholic?" He asked me once while introducing me to another artist he enjoyed who also shared her medicine by channeling Mary Magdalene.
In that moment, I felt a need to second guess myself. "See? It is a stupid idea," my mind tried to trick. I was grateful to Hear my Voice respond with conviction and Honesty, "Isn't the best Art what sings from your Heart? Why would I settle for less?"
He liked that answer.
So what's with all the names? Why so many and who do they each represent?
Mary Kathryn is that proper part of my Self. The rule follower, people pleaser, the one who makes sure others get their fill.
Mary Kate: the playful inner child, the competitive, go-getter who fears nothing because the Love she carries is enough.
MK is Community Driven, angelic, hopeful, fully invested in committing to the Truth, a dreamer, schemer, forever believer.
Mary is an Alchemist, the witch, bitch, goddess, maiden, mother, crone; Phoenix rising from the ashes; Transformer. light.
I created this website because I knew I wanted a website. I didn't want all of my content and creativity to be owned by Facebook. I wanted it to be mine alone and I wanted it to be a place I could share my Transformation with you.
My life has taken a far greater detour than I ever could have imagined. I miss my love, I miss my life, but I am also radically changed in ways I did not even realize I could change in this lifetime. I am grateful to these Gifts I receive and I look forward to sharing my Self, my Art, and my Vision with you.
with love & gratitude.
all of the above <3
