The Ultimate Harmonic Union within You
Unleash Your Divine Feminine Energy
Shakti means power, energy, dynamic force, and primordial cosmic energy. Mythologically, Shakti represents Divine feminine energy and is often personified as the goddess, consort to the divine masculine god, Shiva. But at the most profound level, Shakti transcends gender. Metaphysically in the yogic tradition, the creative energy of Shakti (or Divine Mother) gives rise to the manifestation of all phenomena in the cosmos. Her dance creates the beautiful and the sacred in the cosmos. And that same power is also within you.
In the Yoga tradition, Shakti is regarded as a sacred, Divine, and primordial cosmic force, and is seen as representing the dynamic principle of the universe’s feminine power energy, as a Devi, a Goddess. The creation is often viewed as a play of Shiva (masculine) and Shakti (feminine), symbolizing the duality of existence. Shakti represents the dynamic and creative aspect of the universe; Shiva, the male principle, represents the un-manifest supreme consciousness. These two principles can be observed everywhere. Their union creates astonishing forces, and our physical body is the microscopic mirror of the macroscopic play of the cosmos reflecting these two principles. Regardless of our gender, both the masculine and feminine aspect is within our subtle body. The subtler our being is, the more expansive and freer we become. In this altered state of consciousness, the individual can transcend and go beyond boundaries. Yoga is all about enhancing our perceptions to experience and see things as they are. Ultimately the journey on the spiritual path is to move from the grossest to the subtlest, where boundaries are crossed— from bondage to freedom. Inner beauty is realizing and experiencing the oneness of existence. That is to be in YOGA.
This balancing of the Divine Feminine with the Masculine within your own being is long overdue. It’s the ultimate harmonic union, what we call Shiva/Shakti in the yogic tradition. The old patriarchal system dominated by racism, conquest, greed, and oppression is dying out as it no longer serves the highest good for all living beings on our beloved Mother Earth.
The Power of the Divine Feminine Energy
The power of the Divine feminine Energy remind us always that through strength lays in vulnerability and receptivity. The Divine Feminine energy is a mystical and mysterious subject! Actually, let me rephrase that. The power of Divine Feminine Energy, what we call in the Yogic tradition “Maha Shakti” or “Kundalini Shakti”, or the “Divine Mother” is beyond a phenomenal subject. The Divine Feminine energy needs to be demystified because too many people are confused about what really is. How does it manifest? “But I’m a male. Is it inside of me? “Do I have it too?” So you may asked. So beloved, the Divine feminine energy has been around forever. It is the manifestation of the cosmic creative primordial life-force energy. Everything you see manifesting around in the cosmos is her power. It is her grand empowerment, and you may call it Divine feminine energy because it embodies certain values and qualities.
The Divine feminine energy, Kundalini Shakti or Divine Mother is all the same. They’re synonymous, and it’s not a religion, nor a philosophy, doctrine or dogma. It is a yogic science which evolved from the ancient Yoga tradition which dated back so many thousands of years. This yogic science has been tested by thousands of thousands of Maha Rishis (Great sages), yogi, yogini, spiritual masters, ascended masters, and Saddhus over ions.
Demystifying the Divine Feminine Energy
The misconception and misunderstanding about the Divine feminine energy always has been to believe this energy is for the female gender only. But it cannot be further from the truth. Regardless if you have reincarnated in a male or female body, within your own subtle body Kundalini Shakti is dormant at the root base of your spine located at the muladhara chakra.
Kundalini, which means “coiled” in Sanskrit, is the most significant psycho-spiritual force of our subtle body. It is often associated with Devi, and goddess worshipping. Many traditions call kundalini by different names. In Japan it is “ki,” in China “chi,” and in Christianity “the Holy Spirit.” Whatever you wish to call it, kundalini is the secret pathway to the divinity within us. Over the centuries, kundalini—often called the “serpent power”— came to be regarded as Shakti, whom the great Rishis of India worshipped as the Divine Mother (Kundalini Shakti). Shakti is accessible to all willing ones, anytime and anywhere. This dormant cosmic energy is often depicted as a snake coiled at the base of the spine in the sacrum bone of the pelvis in the muladhara chakra, the first of the seven most important and fundamental chakras. The Sanskrit word Shakti means “empowerment,” or “to be able.
Devi Ma talks in depth about this amazing subject in Becoming the Light Inner Journey mastery (online program). The subtle body is also a fascinating subject. There are 114 chakras in the subtle body, but only seven of them are the most fundamental ones for the human evolution and consciousness, and for the rising of kundalini ascension. The Maharishis calls it “the Serpent goddess.” We have been seeing this iconography for thousands of years within the Yoga tradition. It is astonishing to remark that from one tradition to another or even a religious tradition how the meaning of this iconography of the snake could be so misunderstood. In some religions, the snake represents evil, and in the Yoga tradition it is the opposite, representing Divinity and the ultimate of Self-realization, enlightenment, and liberation of our being. The question is; is it activated or not within you? Is it ascended or not within you?
In the Prana Maya Kosha or the energy body (one of the sheath of the subtle body), we have in the subtle body 72,000 nadis. The 72,000 nadis arise from the three most fundamental nadis – the left, the right and the middle – the Ida, Pingala, and Sushumna are just pathways allowing the life force energy to flow. We may call them channels of life-force energy called prana in the system. As you become more mindful and aware of them, you will realize the life force energy is moving in established pathways. I explained this more in depth in Becoming the Light Inner Journey online Mastery program, and my major book. The Sushuma which is the most outstanding nadi is located in the hollow of the spine. Ida represents the Feminine and the Pingala, the masculine.
The Ultimate Harmonic Marriage of the Divine Feminine & Divine Masculine Energy
We see those two principles of Divine feminine and Divine masculine energy animating in the universe. Everything the cosmos is this manifestation is the play of Shiva/Shakti. In term of principle, Divine masculine energy is pure consciousness, still, what we call “that which that is not” means Shiva. A principle of pure consciousness that is omnipotent, omnipresent and unchanging is always eternal and infinite. Then, the cosmic primordial life-force, that creative power energy of Shakti which means “empowerment” manifests. And you can see that Divine Feminine energy at work in the universe.
Thus, when Shiva/Shakti, (pure consciousness and primordial cosmic energy) merges as one, we see the manifesting of physical existence. That is what is sustaining the whole animation of this cosmos to bring about the manifestation of the physical realm. When they marry each other, the physical creation animates. Throughout the ages, the Maha Rishis were far advanced in their knowing of the absolute truth. They could see how quantum physics and the laws of the cosmos operate. The merging of Shiva/Shakti, the masculine and feminine principles within us, is the ultimate harmonious and necessary union within our own being to experience our full human and Divine potential. Their union creates phenomenal forces allowing us to realize and experience our own Divinity from within. When they merge as one in the one-thousand-petal lotus chakra on top of our head, they are in perfect harmonic marriage. That is your full blossoming of your Divine garden!
Our precious blue and green planet is in grave need of a renaissance of celebrating the Divine feminine principle of energy. The great cosmic Divine Mother or often call “Devi” is that Divine feminine principle energy. An individual who is experiencing the whole of existence as oneself is in yoga, in union. The word for a female would be an yogini, and for the male counterpart, a yogi. This Divine feminine energy has been suppressed and oppressed throughout the centuries by manifestations of many patriarchal religions and societies. For instance, history tells of the Dark Ages where thousands of women, high priestesses who were extremely evolved spiritually, who worshipped the Divine feminine aspect and had many extraordinary siddhis (spiritual powers and paranormal abilities ascribed to the Tantric adepts and masters in tantra), were burned alive in public places as witches. They were wrongly perceived as a major threat because of their spiritual powers. For over four thousand years, the masculine mindset has been destroying, oppressing, and exploiting Mother Earth, its animals, and many women and elders.
The Divine Feminine energy principle is characterized with many attributes— such as nurturing, nourishing, compassionate, loving, giving, healing, creative, intuitive, and benevolent—and can be very powerful and fierce in a host of positive ways. Many of these qualities have been lacking to some degree on our planet for thousands of years. During the Paleolithic and Neolithic times, many tribes venerated the feminine principle energy manifested in the physical form as a goddess or deity. Over the centuries, matriarchal societies (with a feminine principle mindset) flourished in peace, harmony, and reverence for Mother Earth and all living creatures.
The Resurgence & Renaissance of the Divine Feminine Energy
We can’t expect someone else will be affected by the ravage of destruction from the patriarchal domination and conquest for so many thousands of years. It is a tremendous collective karma we as human species have accumulated. It is right here now in our faces. Now the entire planet is suffering from this collective karma. As a consequence, all of us are suffering from the consequences and effects, even the animals and the insects. That’s why spiritual awakening and growth is of upmost importance now to bring everyone back into balance this harmonic, divine, sacred marriage within your own being.
As you can hear and see, there is an extremely urgent need to rebalance these male and female principles within ourselves. As I spoke, Shakti is the primordial energy of the Source of creation, and is regarded as the goddess Mother, (Adi Shakti) especially prominent in Tantra when kundalini is awakening and ascending. This dormant kundalini energy within is the most significant psycho-spiritual force of the subtle body. This Divine Feminine energy tends to be more associated with the female gender in general. Perhaps our nature is more receptive and open to it. The fact that we women are giving birth to life could make us more open to it, though any gender can deeply connect with this feminine energy principle. We all have within our beings the masculine and the feminine energy aspects.
When the Divine Feminine energy is emanating from us, it manifests in these precious valued qualities…. helping the people, the animals, homeless children, and the environment, etc. Either it be for the soil or the oceans, there are many causes reflecting the qualities of the Divine Feminine energy such as creativity, caring, unconditional love, nurturing and living in peace and harmonious with all living beings. See how a healthy mother always care, always nurture, and will love unconditionally. So, together let’s raise the consciousness. Let’s bring about the revival of the Divine feminine energy for Mother Earth’s own survival and for thriving for our children future generations, for their children, their grand and grand children. Let’s do it together. Are you willing? Join Devi Ma and learn how to unleash the Divine Feminine energy.
