This unique spiritual book cuts to the essence of women’s spirituality like no other book has. It eloquently conveys the nurturing feminine quality, a healing quality that is much needed at this time. Human treatment of the environment is sadly out of balance and there is much chaos in the social, political and natural realms across the globe. At one point in time visionaries in indigenous cultures communicated with Mother Earth to keep human’s relationships with her in balance. The Great Mother Bible offers to restore that communication to ultimately bring us back into balance again.

Laced with humor and insight, The Great Mother Bible is a work of revelation and self-revelation. It is grounded in the day-to-day joys and sorrows of the author, which she delivers with unvarnished candor. It is rare to find a book that delivers such lofty visions of the divine realms, while also speaking nakedly about the pains and joys of everyday relationships with lovers, cats, money and mentors.

This book so powerfully embraces the Divine Feminine that it is already impacting readers’ spiritual lives in quite significant ways. The wisdom within this book just might help bring out the healing our modern-day society needs to gracefully transition into the New World being born presently. If we are on the cusp of a spiritual revolution driven by the Goddess Energy, this might just be the book that lights the fuse to help bring more beauty and balance into this troubled world.

Prominent Reviews About The Great Mother Bible:

“…an enjoyable female version of Neale Donald Walsch’s Conversations with God … Positive, powerful insights about love, spirituality, the universe, and Mother Earth.”   ~ Kirkus Reviews

“I love the wisdom and the message of love within this book!” ~ New Age Books Review

“A significant contribution to the growing library of Metaphysical Studies literature and an inherently fascinating, absorbing read from beginning to end. Very highly recommended.”

~ MidWest Book Reviews

Message from Mother, this am (Dec 4, 2015):

Mother_Earth

I Love you.
Be still.
Breathe.
Let go…
You are not always right.
Not always wrong.
You are human.
They are human.
All of you make mistakes.
Say off things,
at times.
Act hurtful,
at times.

Walk away from the drama.
Shed your hurts,
as best as you can,
as best as you can.
Forgive, again and
again,
And again again.

Go walk barefoot on the ground
and give me your restless, pent-up
angst.
There is no reason to be in fear
all the time,
at all.
That is the illusion.
It is your choice.
In this moment.
Fear?
Trust.

I love all of you, so, so
so much.
So much.
Go find your tribe.
Learn to hug more.
Learn to take nothing
personally, absolutely
Nothing personally.

The Spin is intense now on me,
There is a good reason for this.
Stay grounded.
Stay in your hearts.
Stay with me and collect your seeds
and plant them.
Plant the seeds of Hope.
Hugs. Heart.
Carrots, spinach,
more.
Let go, let go, let go,
Let go.

I love you all, more than you can ever know.
Come home to me,
And trust.
Trust the Love.

Mother: I need to talk about this idea that suffering by choice is a path of living. Somehow a while back some ideas were seeded into you two-leggeds that you need to flog yourself either physically or emotionally and this was a good thing. This idea took hold and let’s just say that the song on my planet went down a few notches when this really started to become habitual for you.

This prevalent belief that you are supposed to toil and each day needs to involve some struggle is flawed. Some of you through the centuries wore hairshirts as a bizarre way of reaching the Divine. Why would the Creator/God/Allah ever want someone to suffer as a way of prayer? Then there was self-flagellation. Oh, my, I cringed when I saw what some of these humans were doing as an act of getting closer to their version of God.

Life is supposed to be about celebrating each and every moment as a dance of joy. It’s amazing to be in the body you’ve been given here on me. This splendiferous body where you can dance, touch, walk the ground barefoot in communion with me, have an orgasm of joy ripple up and down your body, and eat chocolate. Peaches. Cherries. Passionfruit. Oh, passionfruit! That’s the thing,WomanGlowEarth you’re supposed to be living passionately, compassionately, in full abundance of energy and … and … somehow this understanding got lost.

Even one of your Catholic saints wrote: “The glory of God is man fully alive.” Some of these saints were spot-on. I loved St. Francis of Assissi. Anyway—alive with joy, with giving, with compassion for all around you including all the four-leggeds, six-leggeds, winged ones and more. Alive with the knowledge that waking up in the morning and sucking air is a miracle along with having delicious food from the local trees and other plants and more.

Alive with gratitude for the Great Father and me and all the other unseen spiritual forces that surround you with love each and every moment all day long and into the night and then the next day. Alive with gratitude for fire even! The fire that warms you, cooks your food, gives you hope of great spiritual connection to the great magic and mystery of life here on me. And if it’s not fire, then your electricity. Taking this love in and giving it back out. To me. To Creator. To your pet, your partner, your colleague at work…

It’s now 9:40 pm on Thurs, Jan 2nd, 2014. Just as the Messages came rolling in fast and furious in the summer of 2013, Mother is starting to wake me up again to listening intensely and take notes. This is for a third book to be called “The Great Mother Bible.”

I’ve been instructed by Her to put this dialogue up online and promote it via social media now even though it’s not quite finished. The plan is that the book will be done by the end of the summer and get all formatted, book cover designed, etc, to go to print lickety-split after that.

In the meantime, wish me luck! It’s an adventure working so closely with the Great Mother… that is for sure. Not sure I’d want it any other way now though. Big Love and blessings, blessings to all…    – mare

ps. it’s taken me three years of grappling with lymphoma and fighting tremendously deep fears to be this open about my relationship and teachings from Mother that She wants me to put out for Her. Several gifted Native Medicine people have confirmed that I’m working very closely with Earth Mother. And then the Great Mother came in this winter, also, to talk with me. This is a very humbling, not-so-small path I guess I signed up for… xoxox

Why The Great Mother Bible?

I am waking up your heart. I am transforming you from the inside out. I am making permanent changes in you, so that you can never go back to the pain and suffering of the past. Stay with me.

~ Divine Mother, facilitated by Connie Huebner

26º Light snow forecast for the day.

 

The spiritual listening and writing within this book started officially on Thursday, January 2nd, 2014. As was Mother’s style, I was woken up very early that winter morning. The holidays were over and it was time to get started.

 

Great Mother: Get up, get up, get up … Mare … yes, I know it’s close to 5 AM but it’s time for you to get up. I love you so very, very much. I love all my humans so, so much and all of your collective foibles, your weaknesses and your great hearts and strengths. I love you all so unconditionally.

Mare, you have been asking me about this book I want you to write. It’s time for us to get started now.

This book, yes, I have asked you to write this with me, and for me. There is a reason I gave you the title The Great Mother Bible in November and I wish for you to keep this title for the book.

For several thousand years, there has been another book called the Bible read by millions. It speaks to a religion or set of religions (Judaism and Christianity) that offer religious/spiritual direction primarily from a Great Father perspective. The original Bible offers some beautiful spiritual wisdom, yet it has been written and rewritten from a strongly patriarchal perspective.

It is time for another book to be offered, a book offering spiritual wisdom and guidance that sources from a more maternal lens on spirituality. There have been too many centuries of patriarchal, controlling religious teachings that have created much imbalance on me these days. Frankly things have started to run amok.

This is this book. It could easily be three thousand pages of teachings and guidance, woven with lovely stories. But I can’t ask you, Mare, to write a three thousand-page book this year. I’m asking you to set aside this winter and spring and listen to me and get these more important teachings down.

We will chat. You will have questions for me about what I’m nudging you to write. You will even have questions about your personal life and I will try to help you with those as your questions are likely to be the same ones that many other humans grapple with also.

It is time to bring balance back to this most amazing planet. It is time for healing to take place on so many levels and for you, my beloved ones, to remember me and bring me back into your hearts so you can learn to live sourcing from a Divine maternal and paternal love in balance. Things have gotten more than a bit off on Earth and this needs to come to an end. A New World is being born these days that will be more balanced. This book, The Great Mother Bible, will be one of many tools to help birth this New World.

Oh, and just because this book is called The Great Mother Bible is not meant to imply the original Bible needs to be replaced completely. This book is to serve as a companion book written from the perspective of the Divine Mother. There is beautiful spiritual wisdom to be found in the original Bible. May it still teach and touch those who open it up. And may they also come to understand that book was compiled by a set of religions that did not recognize me, the Great Mother, as they could have. It is time to right that.

 

And yes, your other book, Messages from Mother…. Earth Mother, is a prequel to this book.

 

 

 

Message 21 – Be Grounded on my Sacred Ground. Please… ;~)

[The first section of this blog is actually a book called Messages from Mother…. Earth Mother released at the end of October, 2012. You can read all of the Messages here or purchase the book with the first thirteen Messages at this page. It is also available as a Kindle e-book and at other internet venues and can be ordered from any bookstore in the USA, Australia, Great Britain, and other international sites.]

Oh my beloved two-leggeds, how much I love you, so much I love you.

It seems that so many of you on a spiritual path and trying to be divine are, well, forgetting the sacredness of staying in your bodies. And the sacredness of keeping yourself grounded and connected to me energetically.

These are times of great adventures and rocking and rolling here on me, your Mother, these days and I love you all so, so much. But it is easier for me and for you if you can be as grounded as possible.

And many of you are magnesium deficient. With the ways that you all, well—most of you, have been treating my precious soils, let’s just say that the minerals in the soils are not what they could be anymore, at all. So your food is nutrient deficient. You all need more magnesium and this will help ground you and calm you. This is key. And don’t take it with the calcium, take it separately. While you’re at it, take your vitamins too.

And please stop putting all those two-legged made chemicals on the soil, and ground up rocks of fertilizer. You need to spread manure, good, beautiful manure all over those fields and get that soil alive and kicking again. So many acres and hectares and even more acres of my precious soil are practically dead zones compared how all my land used to be. You all have taken most of life out of my fields with all the stuff you use that is focused on killing my precious insect and plant life. Things are running amok. I love that word ‘amok’, by the way. Such a fun word to use.

Okay, I’ve got to run and it’s always such a joy to be giving out these messages and please, please, please, please remember to keep on connecting with me, and staying grounded and walking in a Sacred Way here on me. I need you all to do this.

Love, Love, Love. More LOVE!

Message 4 – About Dying & Living

[The first section of this blog is actually a book called Messages from Mother…. Earth Mother released at the end of October, 2012. You can read all of the Messages here or purchase the book with the first thirteen Messages at this page. It is also available as a Kindle e-book and at other internet venues and can be ordered from any bookstore in the USA, Australia, Great Britain, and other international sites.]

Mother: Sarah, good to see you! Once again we meet. I am loving, loving these visits. Hmmm… I think it is your turn again for a joke. Or even any sort of silliness. I absolutely love silliness.

Sarah: Okay, Mother. I’ve been playing around with limerick writing. I memorized one to share with you. Here goes. It’s called The Banana Limerick.

Bananas have three sections
For many a predilection.
Yummy for the tummy,
Don’t eat when strumming.
I prefer them over national elections.

Mother: Oh, Sarah, I love that! You probably didn’t know this but bananas are one of my most favorite designs in all my evolution work. The way they grow hanging in bunches from the banana trees—I love how that worked out. How you two-leggeds hold them and unpeel them in sections. Even the apes do that. It just makes me feel all tickled inside when I watch all of you enjoy them. Plus the fun foods that you cook up with them too. So, so creative!

Hmmm … as for national elections. Not my favorite thing at all. At all. All the mud-slinging. There are days when I feel like giving them some real mud-slinging. But I don’t … I don’t. I restrain myself.

Okay, Sarah, you can choose a topic today again. What would that be?

Sarah: Mother, I would like to know about death and dying. What really happens when you die?

Mother: Oh, this will be fun. Good question. Though I’d rather be calling this message about “Dying and Living.”

Sarah, when you die, you only die to this dimension, this physicality on Earth. When your body gives up the ghost—oh, those poor sad ghosts, never mind them right now—then your soul-body travels to another spiritual dimension and it all starts over again. You still exist in your soul-body then. You are just not on Earth, my glorious planet, anymore. You have moved on to another spiritual plane.

It’s a rather beautiful thing, dying, actually. Though most of you two-leggeds are so afraid of it. That makes me so sad.

Some of you two-leggeds are only starting to realize there are so many dimensions to the universe. When you die, there are spiritual beings that help you cross over to another dimension. When you get to that gathering place for souls who have just passed on, there is a big party. Loved ones you knew in life greet you and there is a big, big celebration. Of course, time does not mean anything over there, so the celebration lasts as long as it lasts.

When the festivities are over, you are guided to the Library of Souls to view your particular book. Some call this the Akashic Records. Your soul has a book for all of the lifetimes that you’ve lived. Everyone has a book. In that book are the records of all you did and said, your kindnesses, your not-so-kind moments. You review your life there and are given the opportunity to consider what you might do better next time. Then, after a period, usually about thirty years or so, you come back. You’re born into another body here.

But you’ve never really died, died, as in gone, gone.

You see, the Great Mystery is not only a Mystery with a capital “M” but is also the Great Recycler with a capital “R.” Your soul just goes and goes. What is it that you two-leggeds say about an Energizer Bunny? It just keeps on going and going. Though there aren’t any batteries in your soul to give out.

Your soul-body can get sort of dented, though, and need fixing. Many times life on the physical plane can be a school of hard knocks, and your soul-body can get damaged when you’ve experienced a lot of trauma. There are gifted healers who walk among you as two-leggeds, and they can help you recover from current or ancient trauma. It’s so lovely when you find a good healer and you feel so spanking beautiful and whole after visiting one of them. It may take a couple of visits though.

I love my healers so much, since they help to bring my two-leggeds’ soul-bodies back into a place of good alignment and wholeness. The song that you put out after this alignment is so sweet. It’s actually healing for me too, when this happens. Your song is in closer alignment with my song of love and joy and wholeness. It’s so lovely. So very lovely. It’s good when you two-leggeds can find one of these healers … good for you and good for me.

Most of you don’t know this, but it’s actually a huge treat for you as a soul to be living in the physical on this planet. Eating a cherry, tasting that sweetness. Jumping into a cold river or lake and feeling your body tingle all over with aliveness. You can do this only when you are physical on this planet. You can’t do these things when you’re in the spiritual realms.

Each of you was born with memories from previous lifetimes embedded in your soul. This is what motivates you to seek out certain hobbies or careers. Perhaps you were a musician beforehand, a gifted one. Child prodigies are children who were extremely gifted at whatever skill or aptitude they had in a previous lifetime. Those soul memories are not lost.

Your soul memories can also speak to some of the deepest challenges in your current lifetime. Maybe you died of an abortion in a previous lifetime because the ancient herbal knowledge that could have prevented your pregnancy was hard to access, and you had to seek out an abortion from someone unskilled in a dirty room in a dark alley. Something that traumatic becomes a soul memory in this lifetime, and you might not be so inclined to have a child since that horrific death memory is still there within you. You might even develop health issues over time in your womb-space because of the soul trauma. This is when you could seek out a gifted healer since this type of soul memory is a wound in your soul-body.

Or maybe you cut someone’s hand off in a past life and then are born without a hand in this lifetime. That happens. Or you’re terrified to get into a boat or even to swim because you drowned in a past life. So many different experiences that each of you carry into each lifetime. Rather fascinating, actually.

If you were completely healed and your soul-bodies were singing as brightly as they could, you would love your physicality and sensuality. That is part of the great gift of being born here in a body. You get to enjoy this body for as long as you are in it. Sometimes you have pains and health issues, and other times you are experiencing the gloriousness of your body with a partner or alone. I know the aches and pains do get a little harder when you get older. It’s part of the beautiful process of being alive.

Just as my dolphin children love their physicality and rub all over each other and make love all the time since it is such a joyful act for them, you two-leggeds could be doing this too. You could be enjoying your bodies and the incredible deliciousness of being in one that is capable of making love and tingling all over again and again. Responsibly though. Responsibly.

Many of you two-leggeds have been taught that it is a shameful thing to enjoy your bodies. You’ve gotten all warped about this and made the act of bringing yourself to a full bodily wave of tingles wrong. This just baffles me so much. Why would anyone ever want to stop you from enjoying your body, this beautiful body that has been made possible through my work and love, all of my evolution, along with the Great Mystery’s love too?

Some of these so-called rules that some of you learn in those buildings where you talk more about God or the Great Mystery than anywhere else really are not helpful.

Now, I do think some of the rules taught in those buildings are smart and good. This is true. It is good to learn how to forgive. It is not good to kill other two-leggeds willy-nilly. It’s good to be kind. Not good to steal.

But the rules about that one day, the Sabbath Day, being the only holy day in the week … I just don’t get this. Every day is a holy day. Every day is a day to be close to the Creator and me, your Earth Mother. Every day and every moment is a time to consider the Sacredness of your being alive as a soul-body here on my glorious, incredibly fun and delicious planet. I mean we have peaches and chocolate and fresh bananas here. This planet is amazingly delicious!

You know, what is it that you two-leggeds call it? The Ten Commandments? Next time, Sarah, I will give you Earth Mother’s Commandments. Though I’m not sure if it will be ten. I have to give this some thought between now and then.

Okay, I’ve got to run. You know it’s still a lovely day. I hope you go for a long walk in the woods after we part here in the Sacred Grove.

Love you!

Love all of you so much!
