Who is Sophia? Literally she is Wisdom, because the Greek word Sophia means “wisdom” in English. More than that, Sophia is the Wisdom of Deity. She has been revered as the Wise Bride of Solomon by Jews, as the Queen of Wisdom and War (Athena) by Greeks, and as the Holy Spirit of Wisdom by Christians. She is known as Chokmah (pronounced HOK-mah with the H being said like -ch in the name Bach) in Hebrew, and Sapientia in Latin.

But just who is Sophia?

Sophia is found throughout the wisdom books of the Bible. There are many references to her in the book of Proverbs, and in the apocryphal books of
Sirach and the Wisdom of Solomon (accepted by Catholics and Orthodox, found in the Greek Septuagint of the early Church). She is Wisdom Incarnate, the Goddess of all those who are wise.

Is it any wonder that Sophia is constantly associated with wise King Solomon? 1 Kings 4:29-31 tells us that God gave wisdom to Solomon, and that he became wiser than all the kings of the East and all the wise people of Egypt. Wisdom 8:2, 16, 18 tells us Solomon was considered to be married to Sophia. One of the many layers of symbolism attributed to the Song of Songs (also known as Song of Solomon or Canticle of Canticles) is that it speaks of Solomon’s marriage to Holy Sophia. Wisdom 9:8-11 even tells us that Sophia instructed Solomon in building the Temple!

The Jews revered Sophia. King Solomon even put her right in the Temple, in the form of the Goddess Asherah. However, after the brutal “reforms” of King Josiah described in 1st and 2nd Kings in your Bible, the veneration of Sophia went underground. Josiah slaughtered all her priests and priestesses and destroyed all her shrines and places of worship. But Sophia adherents remained active in the “underground stream” for centuries even while patriarchal Christianity held total sway in the Western World. Thanks to her continuing presence in the world and her presence in the Bible, veneration of Sophia surfaced in the Eastern Christian tradition with the construction of the Hagia Sophia cathedral in Constantinople (now a Muslim museum in Instanbul). The Russian Catholic liturgical service to Sophia combined with the assumption of Mary on May 15. The Russian Orthodox Church has also begun a school of “Sophiology” to explore the thealogy (spelled with an “a”) of Sophia without contradicting the Russian Orthodox theology.

Yet the Eastern Christians are not the only Christians to venerate Sophia. Sophia was very likely venerated by early Followers of the Way, and her veneration has survived in the West today in the form of Gnosticism. Gnostics see her as one of the aeons, one of the quasi-deities who live in the ethereal realm known as the pleroma. Gnostics believe that she gave birth to or brought about the creation of a negative aeon, who later came to be called an archon, called the Demiurge, creator and ruler of this world. Gnostics see the Demiurge as the God of the Old Testament, with his strict rules and chains that bind the people of the Earth. Gnostics believe that Sophia and the Father God (not the Demiurge) sent Yeshua to right this wrong. In Gnostic tradition, Sophia plays a very active role in our world.

Esoteric Christianity doesn’t typically support the theory of the Demiurge. It believes that creation is inherently good, and as such so is the Creator. However, the Mystery School does look at other theories and myths such as Shaitan (aka Satan or Shatan), the devil, was the ruler of this world and was accidentally given the keys to the Otherworlds by Goddess. He had these keys until the passion, death, and descent into hell of Yeshua, when Yeshua retrieved them and holds them still. Sophia, Mother Mary and Mary Magdalene are three Christian Goddesses, making up a female Trinity.  Both the earthly forms of Mary and Mary Magdalene shared the name Mary, and both in their Heavenly forms share the Hebrew letter Heh in the God-Name YHVH.  So how does Sophia fit into the Godhead?
Wisdom of Solomon, a book in the apocrypha says clearly that Sophia is the Holy Spirit.  There could be a feminine Trinosophia – Mother, Daughter, and Pneuma (Holy Soul).


The Trinitarian/Trinosophia can also fit with the Quaternity. The Quaternity Godhead is made up of four divine beings, Father, Mother, Son, and Daughter. Quaternarians also acknowledge Paraclete and Pneuma as the masculine and feminine essences of Divinity (see our Creed of the Way, in which Pneuma is clearly acknowledged). Perhaps Paraclete is the combination of the two masculine forces, and Pneuma may be the combination of the two feminine forces. This could explain why Paraclete and Pneuma do not have their own letters in the Quaternity, since they may be a combination of the masculine and feminine forces.

Sophia, Hidden Goddess of the West

 Exile & Return
 Excerpt:  Sophia personifies wisdom, an ancient tradition concerned with integrity in the marketplace, politics, and royal court. Because the teachings were rooted in life instead of doctrine, Sophia became problematical and excluded from the religious formulations of monotheism. This manuscript is about exile–Sophia’s and our own. I compare Sophia’s exile from mainstream religion to the alienation suffered by modern individuals who experience loss, betrayal, and abandonment. What is exiled in today’s dysfunctional paradigm is the vital soul, the genius or daemon. When we pay attention to it by taking our life seriously–as a mode of knowledge–we awaken its fire. The vital expresses the integrity and intelligence of the life force, whose awakening turns exile into home–revealing Sophia to be not divine but the source of divine images–the human psyche. While Sophia has been interpreted as divine, goddess or psychological image, she is examined here from several unique perspectives. First, Sophia is developed from the context of modern life and real people, but in conversation with the historical and mythological. Second, the dark side is confronted through analysis of Sophia’s “Other” faces, Lilith and Hecate, locating it as the source of individual power and knowledge. Third, it provides modern women with an image of female power that is not based solely on reproduction and mothering but on another aspect of the feminine archetype rarely discussed–the intelligence and cosmic power of the life force. Finally, it introduces the “path of crumbs” which encourages women to direct their own life through recognition of the guidance present in circumstances.

Have you seen her? Sophia could be the Holy Spirit. Or she has Her own Holy Spirit just as God-the-Father does. Some say Sophia was embodied by Mother Mary, others believe she was embodied by Mary Magdalene.

Prayers to the Holy


You of the whirling wings,

circling, encompassing energy of God:

you quicken the world in your clasp.

One wing soars in heaven,

one wing sweeps the earth,

and the third flies all around us.

Praise to Sophia!

Let all the earth praise her!

The Creed of the Holy Spirit

(by Unknown author. Please email if you know who wrote this!)

I believe in the Blessed Sophia.

I believe that she is Our Heavenly Father’s Beloved Daughter.

I believe our souls dwelled with them in the Beginning, in harmony and love.

I believe that Sophia is the Divine Daughter.

That She lives in all women, and her strength and grace inspires all;

And she has sinned, learnt and is now strong and free.

I believe that Sophia is the Great Mother.

She is the Eema, the image of the hight of our strength;

And she has tutored me along Her Holy Path.

I believe that Sophia is the Holy Soul.

The Pneuma, the inner Crone of death and understanding within me;

And that She will bring completion in my waning days.

I believe that Sophia is the Spirit of God.

She is the Celestial Mother, and unites the Father and Child;

And She has given us knowledge of Their nurturing ways.

I believe in the Aeons, the Spirits, the gods of the Unknown God.

They are ruled by Sophia, they are Her children;

They all come from the Mother and to Her they shall return.

I believe in Reincarnation.

Her soul allows us to cycle throughout the prinsonhosue of matter;

Until we achieve the Liberation of the Light of Her Unknown Source.

I live in duty to restore honour to The Holy Spirit.

In prayer and reverence of all Her rituals;

From the masks of saints and goddesses, to restore honour to the True Queen.

The Hail Sophia

Hail Sophia, filled with Light, the Christ is with thee.

Blessed art thou among the Aeons and blessed is the liberator of thy Light, Jesus.

Holy Sophia, Mother of all Gods, pray to the Light for us thy children, now and in the hour of our death,

Prayer To The Holy Spirit

Most loving Father of the poor, send your light down from Heaven, your Gift of most splendid gifts, the Light that penetrates all, the Fountain of deep consolation. Come, O Divine Sophia.

Come, Sweet Host of the soul. Give everyone rest from their efforts, respite from their hard labor, be their gentle breeze in moments of fire, the joy that dries up their tears and comforts their sorrows.

Enter the deepest depth of their soul, Oh Divine Sophia, and enrich it. Look at the emptiness within when you are not presence. Look at the power of sin when you do not breathe within them. Water the dry earth of their soul, heal their wounded heart, wash them clean of all dirt, place the warmth of life back within their cold hearts, conquer their uncontrollable spirit, guide them when the way is confusing.

Pour out on your servants your seven gifts according to their faith. In your goodness and blessings give them the strength they need, save all who are looking for salvation, and bless us all with your eternal joy.

Faith, Hope and Charity, Daughters of Sophia

O holy and most praiseworthy ones, Faith, Hope and Charity, and wise mother Sophia of these glorious daughters: to you do we now hasten in heartfelt prayer, for what better representation can we have than faith, hope and charity, the three cornerstone virtues, which, bearing their names, ye embodied in fact. We entreat you to shield us, save us and keep us in every sorrow and trouble, because you are good and loveth humankind. We pray that your Mother Sophia’s glory, like a sun that never setteth, be with us in our humble prayers; may the Godhead forgive our sins (mistakes) and iniquities (transgressions), and have mercy on us who are forgetful of our Being-ness. Pray indeed for us, ye holy daughters, also unto our Lord Jesus Christ the Son of Man, and the Holy Bride Magdalene, to whom we practice to be present with, together with his Father and Mother, the All-holy, and Good, and Life-creating Sophia, who are from the Everlasting. We join our energy and our consciousness to the Everlasting the combined Godhead, merging with their presence now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen in the Now.

Hail, Lady of Light

Hail, Lady of Light,

Blessed are you, Woman of Wisdom,

and blessed are the gifts you bestow on us your children.

Holy Sophia, goddess who leads to the One God,

fill me with your emptiness,

and darken my spirit with your light,



Salve Regina (Sophia)

Hail, Queen of Heaven,

Mother most merciful,

our life, our sweetness, and our hope.

You lead us on this pilgrim journey,

and to you we cry when we seem mired,

in the pain of exile from our true home.

And, gentle Mother Sophia, you soothe our tears.

Turn then, most gracious Advocate, your eyes of mercy toward us,

and bring us into the unity of the Pleroma,

with your heavenly consort, our Lord Jesus Christ.

Sophia by Alex Grey

(A nighttime prayer)                                                   Top

In darkest night, when lights are dim,

and all in sight seems sad and grim,

I find you there, your arms surround me,

your spirit fills me and it grounds me.

I look to you, Lady of Truth,

most ancient One, yet eternal youth,

to keep me safe, protect my heart,

and with the wisdom you impart

fill up my empty mind and soul

so that, my Lover, you can make whole,

all that was broken in this day –

and that is what I ask and pray.


Closing Prayer to Sophia                                        Top

O Gentle, O Kind, O Blessed Sophia,

Thy children on earth call unto Thee.

We pray Thee, Beloved Mother, to cast forth

thy net of woven starlight.

Fling it wide across the ocean of the universe

to gather us home to the realms of Light.


Sharon Cutmore writes:  Several of the above prayers I collected from various sites in dedication to the Blessed Mother that is Wisdom.

A Gnostic Prayer to

by Tau Malachi

Praise you, Mother Sophia;

Praise you, Great Goddess –

Hail to you Aset, Holy Virgin, Mother of God;

You who birth souls to the Infinite and Eternal,

Whose grace is the Light of the Day of Be-With-Us!

Yea though I walk in the day of your mourning,

Yet with your Forethought I behold your joy,

And with your Afterthought I gaze into your heart –

The perfection of Light and Love, Life and Liberty!

Placing lotus blossoms upon your alter, and making offerings of incense and lights;

Envisioning the offering of everything good, in the heavens and on earth,

I worship in your Light-presence and call forth your Light-power,

Send the Opener of the Way before me,

Let the Spiritual Sun shine from within me:

O Mother, give birth to your Holy Child –

Empower me to go forth in the Divine Light!

There is Light and there is Fire, and your Great Spirit passing through;

One Aeon dissolves and another arises, but all is in you as in a Holy Womb –

You, the Portal of All-Worlds; You the Life of All-Worlds: You giving birth!

I pray, Holy Mother, that you might part your veil, that I might see you in all your forms,

And perchance glimpse into the In-between to behold your True Essence;

Such is my prayer, such my inmost heart’s desire,

To know you and to love you,

To be at-one with you!

Ave Sophia!

Three awesome poems to Sophia written by SharOn Alder.                                 Top

In Her Great Love, in Her undying Compassion, Her great Grief and Sorrow, at Her rejection, non-acceptence, not from the personal grief point of view only, but from the effects of Her messages, wisdom, guidance, Her great Labour for Her people and humanity and Mother Earth. Her Soul, encompasing many star systems, wraps Her arms Lovingly Mother Earth. suffucing our Gaia with the gentlest of healing and supportive Love. But She is not separate from Her Essence and Feels all the grief and sorrow and pain of Mother Earth in all her aspects including humanity. Like the scales of Ma’at, that which She feels through Her Compassion which is not Love, She balances out with due measurement of Love.

The Mother of All Creation, Sophia, is Pure Love, and feels and knows not but Love; Pistis Sophia is the Daughter whose Spirit “falls” (down) into and takes embodiment in the material realms, experiencing the pain of the denial of Love as Her Spirit falls into the denser realms, (as Jesus is the embodiment of the Father aspect of Creation.) From Her experiences, Pistis Sophia adds discernment and Wisdom to Love, which otherwise knows no disparity and love’s without discretion. So here goes….


This Sophia longs for the touch,

Even the merest touch

of her golden gilded consort.

She has searched the highest heavens

and found many a true lover,

And poured ever her infinite bliss

from the diamond studded chalice

of her being.

Some sucked her chalice dry

then placed her in a forgotten corner

until their thirst rose yet again;

Some tossed aside the chalice

only to smash it against the rough stones.

From each lover, indeed,

She has found and rejoiced in parts of her Divinity,

and in agony She pieces them together.

She longs from the four sides of eternity

For Osiris to rise within her yet again.

She who is endless Love waits to be Loved,

Not just for a moment, but Eternity….

Sophia, Waits……


How should I respond when in the Highest of Heavens

they call my name as “Love”?

How should I respond who has experienced endless, boundless Love,

and have been repudiated from this world?

How should I respond when the world I laid

with such Love and Grace is trashed and decimated with war, greed and avarice?

How should I respond, who Am the embodiment of Love,

to see my sisters, daughters and children abused and neglected?

I shall tell you that She Who Is Love indeed is Wailing and Moaning:

The crucifixion of Her Son, know not such pain

As that which spill from Her Heart this day.

How should I respond when the means of this World

have not supported Love in this life,

but have put all else before

Her call to enter the Silence and be embraced in Her Great Love?

How should I respond when those with whom I have shared my Love

still choose the allurements of this mortal world and self-aggregandizement,

Yet leave this body and heart desolate?

How should I respond when those I have chosen have ignored my Call

And Mandate to bring Heaven to Mother Earth?

In the Temple of Sophia, a Wake is Taking place Today:

Tomorrow when the children and women and old folks are fed;

Tomorrow when the needy have clothing, food and shelter;

Tomorrow when the guns are turned to plowshares;

Tomorrow when my daughters are not raped nor choldren beaten;

Tomorrow when we give back to and take care of Our Mother;

Tomorrow when in Her Name there is Rejoicing,

In the Temple of Sophia, A Celebration will Take Place.

c. June 14, 2004, Sharon Alder, Pistis Sophia, “Soaring Eagle’


I have given them eyes to see,

and they have not seen.

I have given them ears to hear,

and they have not heard.

I have given them a mind to discern,

and they have not discerned

The Ways of Holiness.

I have given them a Heart,

and they have not loved one another

Or the Holy Mother.

I have given them a bright star

to guide them to the Holy Land,

Yet they have wandered in the Deserts

of Desire and Despair.

And when they came to the Holy Land,

The chosen Ones took with them

The ways of Descecration and War.

The Chosen Ones defiled and laid waste

The Holy cities, the Holy Temples,

The children, the Mothers and the Old Ones;

The Chosen Ones Defiled Her Holy Daughters

And Sacred Land.

From Their Way , who has returned

To the Ways of Sanctity and Holiness?

Who has prepared their Hearts for Her Return?

Who has raised for Her, Her Sacred Temples?

Who has clothed and honoured Her Sacred Daughters?

Who has fed Her little Children?

Who has cared for the aged and the crippled?

Who has purged Her Holy Land from the Ways of War

And laid the Sacred Ground with the Ways of Peace?

Oh Ye children of Man, I say,

Prepare yourselves with fasting and with Prayers

For the Lamentations of the Mother are Great

For Her Temples and Beloved are Naught,

And they See and Behold Her Not.

Prayers to Sophia

A Companion to “The Star in My Heart”

Thoughts from the Author.

“…I believe that all our names for the Divine, whether male or female, are inadequate. All these metaphors are our feeble human attempts and projections as we try to draw near to the Mysterious One. Probably the only adequate name for the Holy One is that which was written long ago: “I Am Who I Am” (Exodus 3:14). In order to have a personal relationship, however, it is helpful to name the Divine. “Sophia” has become the best divine name for my prayer. I resonate immensely with her qualities of guidance, truth-bringing, and companionship. She is always with me as I search for the way home, which is what I am consistently doing on my spiritual path.

…As this relationship continually unfolds, she constantly leads me deeper, challenges me to grow freer, and keeps inviting me to be more truly my best self. I know that this relationship is never just for myself. It is out of this affinity with Sophia and my ongoing transformation that I am consistently led outward to the world in which I am to give my life and service.

Sophia always draws me up and outward once I have been led down and inward. It is a cycle that I trust. I do believe that I am a much more compassionate woman for having sat in Sophia’s presence….”

Springtime Prayer

O Dancer of Creation,

the earth awakens to an urgent call to grow. In the hidden recesses of my wintered spirit I, too, hear the humming of your voice,

calling me, wooing my deadness back to life.

My soul yawns, stretches, quickens,

as the energy of Spring revives my weariness. I sit with wonder, observing the steady activity of downy woodpeckers and newly yellowed finch. I do so wait with the avid attention of a child’s first look, savoring the colors and shapes of earth’s loveliness.

As the filtering patterns of early sunlight lift the shades of green in every growing thing, I enter into spring’s unlettered words of life. For a while my doubts, anxieties, and worries become like chapters in some ancient book whose text no longer claims my full attention. I am content to sit, watching Spring turn the pages of this animated publication, eager to discover the invigorating story reflected in my own springtime revelation.

Tell me, Wise Awakener,

why is it easier to believe in a stem of new grass, or the opening bud of a fresh purple crocus, than it is to believe in the greening of me?

Channeled by Gillian MacBeth-Louthan

I am the She-ness of All that is, I am Sophia. I am the breath of that which you have spoken. I am the breath that is and that is yet to be birthed.

I bring within my words and energies a fulfillment that comes not from the substance of earth, nor from the substance of self. I ask you to taste the sweetness that you are as you kiss the lips of God. I ask you to taste the sweetness that was destined to be your life before you chose the conflict. Come forth into the fullness of your power in this hour of light. Do not wait a fortnight; do not wait another day until the timing is correct in your perceptions. For in the scheme of universal knowledge and the schematics of universal light, there is but this moment. In this moment you need to fill yourself with all that you want to be. Do not talk of what you shall accomplish one day, but fulfill that accomplishment within your mind, within the pictures of your heart and the pictures of your word in this moment, this thought.

In the upcoming time, you will find that many words that you speak will change in enunciation, in meaning, and change in vibration. You will find that as you speak, a gentle hum is heard in your heart as it begins to vibrate with truth so fast that music is created. These are not heart palpitations but the sound of love that hums through the caverns of your being.

I am She that was whispered into existence by the mouth of God. I am sometimes seen as Shekinah, the holy breath, the Holy Spirit. I am feminine of nature, but not always depicted as such. I come forth with the vibration and the teachings of the ancient Magdalenes. You birth a New World on this day by believing. You birth a great white hope that lives so deeply in your cell memory that you have not yet seen it in your world. You birth on this day a completion as you spiral and dance around all layers and faces of your soul and of yourself finally landing in climax within the oceans of your being. I am that which is yet to be found within you. I am the sacred feminine that you seek but do not always see reflected in the mirror of your life. I am the sacred face of the feminine light of God and I come to heal you as I come to birth myself.

The essence of Sophia (Ma-RI) has lived by many names and each one of them you have donned as a costume in the masquerade of life. You came in this time holding an encoding that will be released in these upcoming times. It is that sacred number, that sacred sound, that sacred geometry and color of the Wild Woman untamed Goddess within you that you allowed to be birthed in fullness for me and through me.

It is time for you to celebrate everything about you for every one of you is a strand in the tapestry of my cloak of light. The doorway opens for you to see and to celebrate. Some days the celebration will be in a place of loneliness and other days it will be in a large beautiful group, but it matters not. Your life needs to be a celebration of who you want to be and who you know you are. Strip off the weather coatings that you wear as protection and allow your glorious beautiful self to be seen in the fullness of time. Do not be afraid of your emotions or your angers or your passions. Do not be afraid of your wild hair days.

If you would sound my sound in your heart, it will help you to heal for it comes as an elixir, as an amendment to all the rules of order that you were forced to follow from time beginning. Say my name softly to yourself – Sophia — Sophia – Sophia. Does it not soothe the thorns of your being? For in that sound is a memory and in that memory you are very close to home.

I thank you for being who you are. You have never allowed others to break your spirit even though there were times when you teetered very close to that. Do not allow anyone to take of your heart. You can give it all that you want, but do not let others take your dreams or your desires. Give and give and give. That is the doorway to the greatest healing of all. Invite me into your day, into the morn, into the night. I will escort you into passageways that you have forgotten. Run bare-footed in the temples of your past. Allow me to escort you into all that you are for it is a place of completion that you come home to. I am Sophia as are you. for January 2005
