The 7 Powers challenge the soul, this is the journey inwards in the words of the gospel of Mary. The overarching theme is to connect to the inner truth through the ascent of the soul. To call out deceptions and dominations to free or awaken to the remembrance of true nature, to Source and as the gospel states, to turn towards the Good. The 7th Power to me is where Mary is saying that the false view is to think of being cut off from source.
The wrathfulness is felt so deeply in the wording; Where do you come from slayer, murderer Where are you going conqueror, vagabond To me the slayer is the capacity to cut us off from our true self and the vagabond is how we rob ourselves from within. This to me is all an internal journey inward and an ascent to our wisdom within that has been sleeping inside us all along.
