Kundalini; the serpent power

Kundalini; the serpent power

The Serpent energy

 

The serpent in tantric tradition represents Kundalini. Kundalini is an energy that is inherent  in all of us. It represents our infinite potential of being. She is the feminine creative energy also known as shakti. This energy lies dormant at the base of the spine, until it is awakened. Kundalini is coiled like a snake 3.5 times, the half representing infinity no ending and movement towards greater and greater expansion, reminding us that this energy represents our own infinite nature. Once kundalini is awakened she rises upward along the spine, making her way through each chakra, clearing any blocked energy and revealing our greatest truths, balancing until she eventually reaches the crown. When this potent energy has reached the crown chakra a deep experience of unity occurs and our consciousness expands. This is where we experience our limitless nature. Our creative potential is unleashed. Great vision can download and our power to manifest that vision becomes effortless as we are working in synch with the nature or a “higher power.”

Kundalini energy is the mother energy she is like a sweet dance of ecstacy, rising like the cobra, she is the vessel from which the goddess awakens. She allows us to experience greater states of bliss and all sensual aspects of life. Through the practice of meditation, kriya and breath we are able to awaken kundalini and integrate it into our daily lives so we can live  to the fullest potential.

Connecting to the Divine Feminine through Sacred Rituals

Connecting to the Divine Feminine through Sacred Rituals

Sacred rituals are conscious practices done to invoke grace and devotion, correct energy, and connect with the elements.  There is incredible power in practicing daily rituals in our lives. As women it is especially power to practice rituals as we are tuning into our natural grace and shakti (the feminine creative impulse of the universe). Practicing rituals brings us into a supreme state of receptivity. There are different types of rituals, some as simple as lighting incense or a candle in your home during sunrise and sunset to attune to the energy of the sun, as well as invoke inner illumination. Blessing your food before you eat it is also a beautiful ritual. Creating sacred space in your home is a beautiful place to start if you would like to bring more ritual into your life. An alter can face east, you can put anything that is important or sacred to you on it such as a murti or yantra, candle, picture, crystal or feather. This is a space that should feel good, where you can create a positive vibration and drop into silence easily.  

 

 

In India each day we do a personal puja, which can be performed in one’s home each morning to attune to the energy of the goddess and refine one’s consciousness, taking on her qualities. Puja is a ritual that brings us into a state of receptivity, receptive to the state of grace because grace is ever present. Puja allows us to offer our love back to existence, to connect to the vertical love which frees. The puja consists of different offerings of the elements- earth, water, air and fire, to the goddess along with a specific sequence of mantras to invoke her qualities. We do these offerings to the goddess, as she is an extension of our own self. It’s a beautiful way to start the day, in a space of devotion love and surrender.
