Part 3 of a Message

Question: Would you address the healing of male abuse and how that unfolds into the relationship with the male and the female?
Mary Magdalene: This is a very large topic. Is there a particular question you wish to have answered?
Questioner: Just whatever part could be answered simply.
Mary Magdalene: Ultimately the pattern of male abuse is not different from the pattern of female abuse. It takes a different form and a different manifestation, but it is the same pattern. It has the same source.
The healing always begins with healing the self-hatred, because this is the result of abuse. The one who receives the abusive actions implants within themselves the belief that they are only worthy of this type of treatment. The healing requires returning back to the incidents that are still alive. It is not necessary to revisit everything simply because it happened in the past. It is only necessary to return to the incidents that are still affecting you. The process then is to reopen to the great grief of what occurred. You must allow the grief, because it is a healing process to allow grief, and then let the grief carry you to the beautiful part of you that shut down in that incident (or incidents). There was some beautiful, shiny, light, divine part of yourself that was reaching out for something and instead received the painful actions. To reconnect with that part of yourself is where the healing will be.
Sometimes in spiritual work there are people who do shamanic healing, where they bring back parts of the self. This is a similar kind of healing, where you are bringing back a part of yourself. That part of you is not actually gone. You have just closed off from it, to protect it. Now the healing is in reconnecting with that part of yourself.
It is often very valuable to have support for this. Find someone who can guide you through this process—to be sure that it’s safe, to be sure that you’re caring for yourself and are cared for in the midst of it, and to help guide you to the completion, so that you go all the way through.
It is always important to understand that no matter how horrific any treatment has been, in some way it is important for your soul path. Understand that there are gifts for you in this journey of your response to this experience (or experiences), and that those gifts are most valuable. In the third dimension, this is one form that beings choose to grow, through taking on very difficult circumstances. You might liken it to the phrase “the hero’s journey.” And there are helpers for you in this process.
Does that answer your question?
