A fascinating connection behind the "amygdala" and Magdala has been found. The small structure in the brain also resembles an almond and has long been believed to be translated into "almond" according to a few languages.
Taken from Trevor McGrath: “Rewiring the body and resolving trauma over time. (The main mechanism of well being in the body). Magdalene (Magdala)-amygdala. The focus of healing the healing of the Mary's to restore the vessel/grail back to optimal operation. Teach a man to fish and he can fish for a lifetime as the saying goes. Teach one to heal the root and they can heal all within themselves.”
Both taken from "Behind The Name": Magdalene - name meaning: From a title meaning "of Magdala". Mary Magdalene, a character in the New Testament, was named thus because she was from Magdala - a village on the Sea of Galilee whose name meant "tower" in Hebrew. She was cleaned of evil spirits by Jesus and then remained with him during his ministry, witnessing the crucifixion and the resurrection. She was a popular saint in the Middle Ages, and the name became common then. In England it is traditionally rendered Madeline, while Magdalene or Magdalen is the learned form. (find here)
Mary - meaning and history of name: Usual English form of Maria, the Latin form of the New Testament Greek names Μαριάμ (Mariam) and Μαρία (Maria) - the spellings are interchangeable - which were from Hebrew מִרְיָם (Miryam), a name borne by the sister of Moses in the Old Testament. The meaning is not known for certain, but there are several theories including "sea of bitterness", "rebelliousness", and "wished for child". However it was most likely originally an Egyptian name, perhaps derived in part from mry "beloved" or mr "love". (find here)
What's behind a name? Do we really choose it or does it encode us from the start? ❤️
