Shakti is the essence of vibrant health, feeling good in your own skin, and feeling that your life has meaning and value.
When you have Shakti you have the energy to engage with life in meaningful ways. Shakti empowers you to seek growth and change and to find purpose and fulfillment in everyday life. Shakti is the foundation for a conscious life.
When Shakti is directed inwards it empowers you to raise your consciousness, to experience yourself as part of something greater. Ultimately, Shakti is the fuel that powers your spiritual growth and the awakening of consciousness.
1. ACTIVATE YOUR SACRAL CHAKRA
Your sacral chakra is your hub of creativity and feminine energy. This chakra is located below your belly button and above your pubic bone. Imagine it glowing orange with each inhale and exhale to awaken it. The element of this chakra is water. Let the water element wash over you, literally, by taking a soothing bath or practicing asanas connected to this element such as Dancer’s pose or Natarajasana.
2. CALL ON KALI, DURGA, OR PARVATI
Kali, Durga, and Parvati represent Shakti in Hinduism, calling on any of them can bring some extra Shakti into your life. Each Goddess will bring a different kind of energy. Parvati is a Goddess of love, Durga is a warrior Goddess, and Kali is the destroyer who ultimately brings balance.
3 GRAB SOME MOONSTONE
Moonstone carries the energy of the moon and can serve as a potent reminder of her Goddess energy. Wear it, carry it with you, or place some moonstone on your altar as a glowing reminder of the moon and Shakti energy.
