There has been a contiual linage of sacrifices going back to the very earliest humans, who was it that the Natives (by Native’s I am including peoples of all race) sacrificed? The answer should be apparent, whether she be called Venus or Magdalene it doesnt matter, it is the same Archetype that has been used since the foundation of time. The shocking revelation is that even up to this very day it is happening, but no longer. The sacrifice has already been met, and the power has been stripped from those that desire to use the blood of Venus embodied as a substitution for their own sins.
“I lay myself down, a willing slave to gods and men. The altar hard and cold, an unforgiving canvas, the pure love poured out creating a masterpiece, a sacrifice for your pleasure. The faces morph, with the long list of names, engraved upon me, to carry through time, a conscious time capsule. What do you see in me? Why do you chose me? Is it pure or is it filth that causes you to think to yourselves that I am the one to cleanse your heart and all the while you become stronger and I become more damaged with each hope. The sweetness of my soul bound to me like a curse, drawing hungry wolves to devour me like immaculate manna. Take, eat; this is My body. The sinner never giving thought to the savior.“-M
This was a piece that I wrote many years ago. I had no idea at the time that I was stuck in this ‘Magdalene Syndrome’, nor did I have any idea what it meant to be under and Archetype, I just felt the effects of it, and as painful as experiences in my life were, they are minor in comparison to the many women who actually were taken as a sacrifice. Lets take a look at the oldest physical representations of Venus all the way back to Paleolithic times. What I found was a shocking pattern.
I have a few questions about these statues that span over 30,000 years and many others I have not included here is this.
1. Who decided to label these all ‘Venus’ statues? What do they know about them to give that distinction? Could it have been moon? There have been many moon cults that were feminine, why Venus?
2. Why do they all have one thing in common, missing arms, feet and heads?
Most scholars say that it is unknown, but even the more modern Venus De Milo also has missing limbs, I just always attributed the missing limbs to age and they broke off, it never occurred to me that maybe it is depicting something else, intentional as the artist is depicting the subject not as artistic expression, but more as a remembrance for the age, like an ancient picture.
The imagery also reminded me of a movie. Boxing Helena, which has some very interesting connections.
Producer Philippe Caland initially came up with the idea, but wanted a woman to write it, and so approached Lynch after she gave a poetry reading. At first Lynch didn’t take to the concept, reportedly telling him “Well, that sounds kind of terrible.” However Caland was eventually able to convince her to work on it. In writing Lynch was inspired by some elements from her own childhood, stating to Vice that her being born with club feet, and her grandmother owning a Venus De Milo replica, influenced her insight into the characters, explaining:
It always struck me the way people looked at the Venus. They didn’t see her as broken, they saw her as beautiful. And it really made a huge impact on me. I thought I was broken and that maybe someday someone would find me beautiful. So this idea of a damaged boy who was in an obsessive situation who would try to recreate from his own view the one thing that didn’t hit him or abandon him was this armless, beautiful woman. And therefore in a dream recreate this obsessive thing where we take from one another until we are the size and shape that we think the other person should be for us.[5
Madonna was originally supposed to play the starring role, but shortly before filming was to begin in January 1991 she dropped out, causing the production on the film to be halted.
Meanwhile, Sherilyn Fenn, who had previously worked with Lynch’s father on Twin Peaks was chosen for the title role of Helena in December 1991.- Wiki https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boxing_Helena
Lynch is the creator of Twin Peaks which I did a small blog posting connecting images. I have never watched Twin Peaks, but the imagery speaks of the two trees. https://voxmagdalenea.com/wp/2019/05/01/twin-peaks-twin-pines-mw/
What are the two trees?
8Then Adonai Elohim planted a garden in Eden in the east, and there He put the man whom He had formed. 9Then Adonai Elohim caused to sprout from the ground every tree that was desirable to look at and good for food. Now the Tree of Life was in the middle of the garden, and also the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.
Hidden within the pages of the bible is the wife of God himself, Asherah. She is depicted as a tree and our first glimpse of her I believe is in the garden of Eden as the Tree of Life. I also believe that Adam came from this tree as it says…
Gen 1:27 And Elohim created the man in His own image; in the image of Elohim He created him. He created them male and female.
The word used for created is bara, according to translators it means:
bârâ’baw-raw’A primitive root; (absolutely) to create; (qualified) to cut down (a wood), select, feed (as formative processes): – choose, create (creator), cut down, dispatch, do, make (fat).
To cut out of a tree is a proper understanding here according to the translation. If my understanding is correct then the pattern would hold. From Macro to micro scale the patter would repeat. From the Tree the creation is born, over and over.
The Tree of Life and the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. We all know what happened in that glorious Garden, it was the first aberration in Humankind that still reverberates to this day. Eve presented Adam with fruit from the forbidden tree. The curse and the fall of mankind to suffer is placed on the Feminine. She is the tree that produces fruit, and so therefore has there been a perpetual linage of women that have become the sacrifice ‘paid the price’ for possibly hundreds of thousands of years? Even to this day? I will show that this has and is the case, however it does not have to be, as it was rectified on a Tree.
