Shakti Energy: Your Questions Answered | Divine Feminine Energy

Healing

Shakti is the name given to the divine feminine energetic current that is expressed through, and underpins the whole of creation. The name “Shakti” means ”force” or “power” and is also the name of the goddess that is partnered with the Hindu god, Shiva. Shakti isn’t always depicted as the lover-goddess of Shiva however; the word “Shakti” can also be used to refer to divine feminine energy as a formless, limitless and sacred spiritual power.

All Gods are One God & All Goddesses are Aspects of Shakti

The writer, Marion Zimmer Bradley famously said that “all gods are one god and all goddesses are one goddess”. This idea expresses the concept of Shakti beautifully. Shakti can be considered the energetic pillar that proceeds from the highest energetic frequencies, and is fully expressed when it is grounded into physicality. In this paradigm, the physical world is considered sacred because it’s part of the expression of the goddess, and the goddess herself is sacred. This philosophy invites us to celebrate and honour our bodies, the world we live in and everything we encounter in the temporal world by recognising that it’s all connected to us through the unifying force of the goddess. And just as Shakti finds expression in the world of “things” and “time”, she also finds expression through all depictions of divine feminine energy. All goddesses can be considered aspects of Shakti. So whether you feel inspired by Isis, drawn to Diana, excited by Eris or moved by Melusine, answering the call of the goddess is a potent way of connecting with your own Shakti.

The Goddess Shakti & the Importance of Shakti Energy in the

Modern Age

The goddess Shakti represents life and life-force. It’s said that without her, Shiva takes on the affect of a corpse. Shakti’s energy is considered the animating component that expresses life, creativity and abundance. She is depicted as a dancer whose spirit and passion find full grounding in her being as she embodies higher spiritual energies through her physical form and expresses her divine nature through every intuitive step. She reminds us that authenticity means embracing and expressing the eternal and spiritual through the temporal and earthly realms. Shakti manifests through all people, all living things, the planets, the stars and the earth itself. Wherever life exists, Shakti exists. And you are an expression of Shakti too! In the modern age, an important part of working with Shakti is learning to appreciate that compartmentalising the spiritual side of things and seeing spirituality as separate to “reality” is a flawed model; and that the etheric essence of everything is essential, evolving and eternal.

The Importance of Shakti for Healing & Balance

Shakti is the Great Mother Goddess – the matrix of energy that gives birth to the entire Universe and then nourishes it through continuous energetic expression and expansion. At this time, many people feel called to connect with the divine feminine energetic current because the systems of power we operate with in the world as a whole are more aligned with the masculine energetic current. Without the sacred feminine being represented in a balanced way, the divine feminine current becomes restricted, compromised and stagnant; and without the balancing effect of Shakti, the divine masculine energetic principle is expressed in blunted, superficial and toxic ways. Consciously connecting with the goddess within, and the goddess without helps us to balance the archetypes within our own energy field. This is important for those who wish to pursue a healing journey because divine feminine energy is needed to help us counter the analytical, logical and practical nature of divine masculine energy that tends to be over-expressed, and unbalanced in the modern age.

Spiritual Practices for Awakening Shakti & Exploring the Divine

Feminine Principle

Bringing divine feminine energy into our lives can look different for different people because it’s about tapping into that energetic source and allowing it to flow through us so that it can be expressed in a unique and authentic way. For some, that might be choosing to dedicate a daily spiritual practice to the goddess and to consciously work towards embodying her energy or aspects of her nature. Some ideas for this might be, developing a daily dance ritual – where you mindfully connect with the goddess and ask her to guide you in your dance so that you can feel her presence; or you might dedicate a day every week to goddess-based self-care where you take a “spa-day” for yourself – have a long, relaxing bath, listen to soul-nourishing meditations and choose your food with the idea that you’re sharing it with the goddess when you eat it and invite her to enjoy it with you; or you might make small changes to your daily yoga or energy healing practice to align yourself with the goddess by adding a particular mantra or maybe choosing to work with an energy healing system that connects with divine feminine energy.

Goddesses to Inspire Your Divine Feminine Spiritual Practice

Here are a few divine feminine figures that you can connect with and meditate on in order to align with the goddess within and awaken to the flow of Shakti in your own life. I’ve chosen archetypes and goddesses that can be connected with through Mayastar courses so that if you feel a calling to a particular goddess, you can find out more about her and learn to work with her through energy healing techniques if inspired to do so! Amara: Through channelling, the aspect of the Great Mother Goddess that inspired, supported & guided the ancient Lemurians has revealed herself to spiritual seekers, Starseeds & Lightworkers in the modern age. As an oceanic goddess & divine creator, she shares many attributes of the African Great Mother Goddess, Yemaya. And in reflecting the mysteries of the collective unconscious, the sacred feminine & the depths of human emotion, she also reflects many of the characteristics of Quan Yin. Amara has a special place in the hearts of those drawn to the new age that are feeling the call to pursue their own healing journey with a view to progressing the spiritual ascension of the planet as a whole by their contribution. All people, in all places and at all times are children of the Great Mother Amara and she reaches out through dreams, visions and intuition to encourage us to remember our true divine nature in order to live, love and learn with greater authenticity. Isis: Isis is the Great Mother Goddess of Ancient Egypt; she is reflected in two main forms: Isis Veiled and Isis Unveiled. As Isis Veiled she depicts the physical demonstrations of life – the richness, opulence and fertility of the earth. As a nature-based goddess she shares many attributes with other nature goddesses like the Greek Artemis, Roman Diana and Norse Frigg or Freya. The plants and animals represent the physical 3D reality that can be considered her “veil”. This idea reminds us that what we perceive within the physical realm is sacred and beyond the appearance is the true spiritual source of our reality. Isis Unveiled is represented by the symbol of The Moon and its cycles of life, death and rebirth. The Moon moves the tides and represents the hidden and secret parts of our divinity that are revealed in the darkness. The darkness doesn’t represent something negative here. When it comes to the goddess, the darkness can represent what is hidden or unknown; it can also represent the unconscious mind and the collective unconscious which is the world of dreams, symbols, mythology and magick. In her Unveiled form, we appreciate the higher spiritual nature of the goddess and can connect with her to enhance our intuition, psychic awareness and abilities in the magickal arts. Quan Yin: Quan Yin is the Goddess of Mercy & Compassion. While she originates in China, she has developed a large following around the world. In Japan she is called Kannon. And she shares many aspects with the goddess, Tara of Tibet. Quan Yin is also a being of enlightenment and growth known as a ‘Bodhisattva’: a being devoted to the enlightenment of all beings. She offers support and guidance to those who wish to let go of their ego attachments and embrace her compassionate way. Many meditate on her image in order cultivate this depth of divine love. Her full name is ‘Quan Shi Yin’ which means “she who hears the cries of the world”. And the cries that she hears are those heartfelt, perfect prayers, that come when the ego has been quieted; the perfect utterances of the heart and spirit that open us to experiences of the limitless divine.
