The female divinity of gnosticism is Sophia, a being with many aspects and names. She is sometimes identified with the Holy Spirit itself but, according to her various capacities, is also the Universal Mother, the Mother of the Living or Resplendent Mother, the Power on High, She-of-the-left-hand (as opposed to Christ, understood as her husband and he of the Right Hand), as the Luxurious One, the Womb, the Virgin, the Wife of the Male, the Revealer of Perfect Mysteries, the Holy Dove of the Spirit, the Heavenly Mother, the Wandering One, or Elena (that is, Selene, the Moon).
Mary Magdalene (original Greek Μαρία ἡ Μαγδαληνή) was one of Jesus’ most celebrated disciples, and the most important woman disciple in the movement of Jesus. Jesus cleansed her of “seven demons”, conventionally interpreted as referring to complex illnesses. She became most prominent during his last days, being present at the cross after the male disciples (excepting John the Beloved) had fled, and at his burial. She was the first person to see Jesus after his Resurrection, according to both John 20 and Mark 16:9.
Mary Magdalene is considered by the Catholic, Orthodox, Anglican, and Lutheran churches to be a saint, with a feast day of July 22. The Eastern Orthodox churches also commemorate her on the Sunday of the Myrrhbearers.
We hear in the Gospels about many healings—of the crowds of sick and needy gathering to receive Jesus’ touch or glance. But only in the case of Mary Magdalene are seven demons released from one person. The usual has been that this exceptional number of demons must stem directly from the depth of her sin. But there may be another interpretation, which lies in the number seven.
Its important to remember that Jesus the Christ does relieve Mary Magdalene of the seven demons, or perhaps, those aspects that can cloud vision and energy at each of the seven chakras. Presumably, she no longer possesses the seven deadly sins—pride, lust, envy, anger, covetousness, gluttony, and sloth. In their place exist the corresponding virtues—the way has been cleared for “the seven virgins of light.” If her purification is viewed in this way, it makes her the most thoroughly sanctified person mentioned in the New Testament.
Mary Magdalene was much more than a mere disciple. She was the epitome of the Divine Mother, she was Sophia Incarnate, the Mother in the Flesh. Imagine being completely cleansed of prejudice and old grudges, fogs of illusion, hereditary obstacles to health, all desires. Once healed, she can truly see the spiritual path that works in all things. She can see the barbarity of other human beings, as well as the transcendent beauty of Jesus the Christ’s teachings. In modern times, her heart and energetic centers are open and flowing. When your energy centers open that is when the Divine can flow through you. If the Divine flickers in and out, it probably means that your chakras need more work.
