History Edition: Mary Magdalene

History Her-story of Women: The ‘Magdalene’

Being that I am named after Mary Magdalene, I have had a life long fascination with her and have researched her story with every chance I get. I discovered at a young age the lies and misinterpretations surronding her story – at least the version they taiught me at my catholic elementary school. I think of her as a deputy of the Goddess, an iconic female heroin.

There is so little about her in the Bible, yet she was such an integral chacter in the cast of Jesus’ life. But before I go full out history lesson on you, I wish to pay tribute to the Goddess that is Mary Magdalene. She demonstrates to me the power of a woman’s love, strength and capacity for wisdom and understanding that is unique to the feminine spirit. She is an example of the challenge of the healing heart and the willingless to go on in the face of deep loss. Because we as women have inate instincts to do that which we have to do, before that which we want. 

Mary Magdalene has a rep of being called a whore, a hedonist, a sinner and a femme fatale.

 But “The Magdalen” was the first disciple of Jesus and the one many believed he loved most. Thanks to books like “The Da Vinci Code” as well as Lady Gaga’s song “Judas” (Kudos to Gaga or her new song and video),  mainstream society has been introduced to the importance of this historical woman – her hidden history and the power of the divine feminine principle.

 Below are some excerpts from poems I have written for her over the years…. these date back to 2004

A Fallen Woman                                         

Written by M.Twyman circa 2004

They say the last 30 years of her life were spent in a desolate cave

and that seven times a day Angels took her to the summit of  the mountain to pray

she wasnt really that bad

just interrupted that way

With eyes full of dangerous charms and always a different lover on her arm

she threw public opinion to the wind

let them call her actions sins

Because some kind of deeper love brewed within

women looked at her with curiosity and admiration

men with eyes only of temptation

they associated her with a cult they said was pagan

and all her called her a whore were greatly mistaken

and it could have just been a misinterpretation based on the seven stages of initiation

and some say she did use her charm for manipulation

but for all her sins she was forgiven

and from that point on the truth was no longer hidden that she had loved much

and those whom she touched knew it to be true

and those who didnt didnt really have a clue

because a daughter of wisdom is unknown to the foolish which means 85% will remain clueless

Now it is known that her bloodline is made of rose

and to seven devils her body was once an abode

until fountains of tears cleansed her soul

a nobody girl from the town of Magdala

who grew up to become the jewish Inanna

Luke 7:47

ultimately one of the most powerful women in Heaven

from whore to virgin

above all men

this is the woman behind the legend of

Mary Magdalene

The Whore of Babylon by M.Twyman cica 2004

Mary Magdalene was more than the whore who wiped the feet of Jesus

She is the ‘Hieros Gamos”

The Bride of Christ

She was the first person he revealed himself to after the resurrection

The first bearer of good news

The first Apostle

She stood at the foot of the cross and watched them crucify

her husband

her lover

her King

She was his beloved and it was to her, The holy prostitute, to whom he granted the fullness of his mysteries.

She is wisdom, passion and desire.

The Bible remembers Matthew, Mark, Luke and John

Mary Magdalene?

She was merely the whore of Babylon.
