A Few Revolutionary Ideas about Mary Magdalene
I experience Mary Magdalene as a leader, teacher, healer, and mystic, as well as a mother and as a mate to Yeshua. She embodies the balancing yin element for the Christian religion. She is an essential part of the story that has been sadly missing.
Mary Magdalene may have been a scholar, a learned person. She was a gifted human being on a journey of world soul purpose.
Mary Magdalene may have initiated Jesus into Ancient Mysteries. She might have been his lover, a sacred partner who knew the ancient rights and helped open his mind to the possibilities of the human soul. This is what many contemporary scholars and writers stress in their books, other transmissions or psychic contacts with Mary Magdalene. This idea is also part of some contemporary Gnostic beliefs.
Mary Magdalene may have received a purging of her chakras by Yeshua. When the Bible mentions Yeshua took out seven demons he might’ve been performing a healing that allowed Mary Magdalene to fully birth her Light. My sense is that her life became transformed and visible after this transformative experience period. See The Healing Wisdom of Mary Magdalene by Jack Angelo.
Mary Magdalene may have been a wealthy woman. As a woman who managed her own finances without depending Mary Magdalene was in charge of her own aspirations and her own evolution.
Mary Magdalene may have been the inheritor and progenitor of the Christos and likely was the main apostle. The apostles may not have wanted to be led by her, but Yeshua recognized her as someone with extraordinary spiritual capacities according to the ancient manuscripts, the Gospel of Mary, of Phillip, and of Thomas.
Mary Magdalene may have been the equal of Yeshua, two pieces of the same soul. According to the book St. Mary Magdalene: The Gnostic tradition of the Holy Bride, she held a similar evolution and mission, and at the same time, walked her unique path. When they found each other they recognized in each other their equal and their partner.
Mary Magdalene may have gone to the south of France to live after Jesus left for India. In there is a long tradition of love for the Magdalene, the Madeline. The Church of Love is one example, and many beautiful stories and shrines honor her in the Languedoc area of southern France. As the anointer of Yeshua, she became the saint of flowers and perfume. She is associated with essential healing oils.
Mary Magdalene is an instrument of the goddess or the Divine Feminine. Mary Magdalene is linked to Artemis, Aphrodite, and earlier divinities. She represents the balancing principle to the god Apollo and the “son of God”. Archetypically, Yeshua is the sun; Mary Magdalene is the moon.
She is also related to the Black Madonna, a figure of European imagery recognized as the Virgin Mary in most instances, but also connected to shrines and caves that belong to the ancient religions of France and the Celtic lands. In the middle ages, Leonardo da Vinci links Mary Magdalene to the Gnostics and the Essenes.
Margaret Starbird connects Mary Magdalene to the goddess by using Gematria, the tradition of using numbers in sacred texts to express sacred concepts. Many transmissions and published research suggest that Mary Magdalene personifies and represents Sophia and the Goddess.
Mary Magdalene may have been so many things and that is why she is my muse. She opens me to her universe of possibilities and that is a great and wonderful gift available for all with heart-eyes to see. She dwells within the open Heart.
