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.

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.
