How Do You Feel When Wearing Your Sri Yantra?

How Do You Feel When Wearing Your Sri Yantra?

How Do You Feel Wearing Your Sri Yantra?

 The Sri Yantra – “mother of all yantras,” a beautiful representation of all creation – is a sacred geometric diagram formed by nine different triangles. These triangles interlock and radiate from the center dot outward, representing the point of infinity/totality – the masculine and the feminine uniting as one.  I often refer to the Sri Yantra as a golden chariot that leads one inside the essence of being.  It is the universe in abstract form, the material nature; in other words, the Divine Mother -- who holds the power which creates, sustains, and dissolves everything that there is to experience.  Because of this, the Sri Yantra gives us a powerful representation of the divine feminine within ourselves.  As a young woman who is invariably cultivating her own Shakti nature, wearing an expression of the Sri Yantra symbol, as a Gold pendant, invokes the own divine feminine I have within me, to rise.

 

Throughout the last couple of years, I have found myself holding back from my creative and compelling nature. Instead of empowering and expressing myself honestly, without fear, I held back.  I avoided creating space for allowing the best version of who I could be living as, to emerge.  On a mildly hot afternoon, as I stood in a yoga gathering in my community at home, I immersed myself amongst a group of people that were brilliantly shining their light outward in such a manner I had never become aware of before.  The way they spoke, sang, danced, and moved flowed like an infinite body of water.  It seemed that the universe was expressing itself right through them – and I knew deep down, that it indeed was.  What I gained from these experiences was a movement forward to waking up and realizing my infinite potential in being.  The Sri Yantra pendant is powerful in the way that it serves as a reminder of the immense courage, inspiration, awareness, willingness, and illuminating wisdom that lies throughout every inch of our being. 

 Whenever one wears these precious gems or metals, they become charged with the energy that one carries - the energy that one wants to manifest.  When I bought my pendant, near the end of my yoga teacher training, the substantial relationship I had with what it represents, began to intensify.  I became aware of this during yoga classes, meditations, and especially while swimming in the sacred waters of the Ganga river.  The relation I had to the Sri Yantra began to expand in all directions. My eyes soon spotted elements everywhere I went in nature that would resemble the Sri Yantra; such as the petals of a pink rose falling outward.  I would see it on the outer layer of a rock, or sometimes in the form that the trees took from afar on the mountain's surface.  A mosaic made of broken stone on the streets of India would portray a geometric pattern of the same constitution as the Sri Yantra.  All of this would draw a closeness and humbleness in my heart.  During these moments, without thought interfering, my palms moved towards my own Sri Yantra pendant that hangs right over my Anāhata chakra.

 

When I wear my pendant, a sensation of empowerment floods through me.   I don’t see it as something that I materially need, but a unique and sacred piece of precious jewelry that I can wear with grace and serenity.  A divine ornament decorating the heart of the Goddess inside - a gem that holds its value and presence within me wherever it is that I go.

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.

 

Look out for online courses soon about ritual and puja!
