Mary Magdalene: Hidden Illumined One
Mary Magdalene: the power in her name
"Mary Magdalene is a talismanic name- it has magic within it. before we start our quest, we should pause a few moments at the temple gates and really drink in the essence of this name. how much can fit within two simple words ? entire worlds it seems; a new dreaming, a renewed holy matrimony of the universe. a forbidden herstory of such magnitude it could melt entire worldly structures. this name is a deep. spiraling, serpentine power portal; play with it on your lips, feel its thrilling, enchanting, alluring, disturbing call. Mary Magdalene, Marie Madeleine, Miriam of Magdala, Miryai e Mara. The Magdalene, Maria, Our Mary, Mari, Maryam. This name is truly a secret and dangerous invocation; it belongs on hidden manuscripts of lost incantations and alchemical formulas. it is a lost promise, now remembered.
Jesus gave his disciples spiritual names that reflected their essence. He called Peter "the rock" judas "the knife" and he called his beloved spiritual partner Mary "the portal" meaning mystic yoni gateway. Magdalene is a word of great feminine power, it derives from the Hebrew name of the ancient mother goddess ma-gadala meaning "great mother", as well as the Aramaic Magdala and Hebrew migdial, both meaning "elevated", "magnificent" or "tower". In the Semitic languages "Mag" and "dal" are among the oldest primitive roots, signifying "great powerful magical" and "portal doorway" respectively. They are shared across other language families: the latin "maga" is a female magician, the feminine version of "magus" or "mage". the biblical greek "amygdale" derives from the same roots and means "almond" or "almond tree". the primary mother goddess of the gnostic sacred serpent sects was called amygdala's-representing the almond tree, the feminine tree of life, the first tree to flow in the spring: "(the almond tree) is the wakeful tree (Hebrew shaqued), that is, the early blooming, the first to wake from the winter sleep, sprang from the blood of the mother of the gods". it is also the vulva's shape mandorla or "magic doorway," portal of the goddess. in ancient Sumerian, the language of Inanna, who we will meet later in our story, the phrase mug-calla means "shining vulva gateway." the name magdalene at its origin means "magic doorway of the great mother", the primordial goddess, the tree and source of life. it held the secrets of a primeval "cunt theology" that became encoded as the mendorla of Mary.
even to this day, iconography of mother Mary is other held within an almond mandorla, a coded wink for those who know that know that there is a secret "Mary mystery" waiting to be revealed. this symbolism of the mandala encompasses both the sacred doorway of the woman's womb, and the mystical womb of consciousness sought out by all the great alchemists, shamans, and initiates. this divine gateway was also symbolized by the rose; and those who followed the magdalene mysteries were known as initiates of the rose line.
this mandorla or mystic rose, also suggests the amygdala region of the brain, the intuitive, feminine "feeling" center in all human beings, which is a portal to the cerebellar cosmic mother consciousness and can initiate profound awakenings. using this lunar wisdom, priestesses initiated others into the intuitive, visionary, divine love of the christ mysteries."
