The greek etymology of the word ‘sin' is to ‘miss the mark’ and indeed she did.
She missed all the marks the church and patriarchal society placed on what it meant to be an a woman in her full glory.
Magdalene was fierce, she was wild power, a true heretic and embodiment of passionate feminine power that will not be controlled nor owned.
If you’ve ever felt that you were ‘too much’, you’ve felt her essence.
This is her wild dance within you.
Beckoning you to lean into your edges, to defy the norm, to awaken into ecstasy and surrender to your own deep, unbridled and wild love.
She dares us to challenge anything and everything which isn’t rooted in love and authenticity.
Through each one of us, the essence of her courage lives on.
Where could you challenge yourself and dare to lean in to an edge?
Where have you been judged or judged yourself for being too much?
May we each find within, the inner marriage needed to embody true, sustainable, gentle and fierce power.
Blessed Magdalene Feast beauties.
One of the most powerful truths The Magdalene wishes for us to remember is how to embody our divine femininity and masculinity. Through this embodiment of Holy Union we will find restoration.
I have journeyed with archetypes through challenging, dark and desolate inner landscapes to reach their tombs of buried secrets and find their temple within my being.
One of the greatest catalyzing archetypes and guides of my own life and narrative, is the one of the Magdalene.
To me, she represents the power behind the throne, the wisdom thats endured ages. A woman of gentle but fierce power. A woman of inteGRITy and passion.
The guiding red thread woven into the lineages of every living woman.
Mary Magdalene, embraced and walked the path of every challenge and projection woman has ever experienced only to show to us, women of today, that restoration is truly possible.
May we all honor and awaken into our Magdalene qualities of fiercely devotional loving and Sacred Union.
