The Adi Shakti Meditation
Boom! Sometimes everyone needs the power of the divine feminine to help them out. We feed off an inner strength, power, chutzpah and grace to get us through the challenges of our lives. And then we feel depleted (because let’s be honest…we’re all doing way more than we’ve ever done before, and we’re all burning the candles at both ends.)
So what can we do when we need a little extra oompf? Call upon the Divine Feminine of course and ask the maha shakti energy of the Universe to give us a little boost. (She’s already here inside us anyway!)
This meditation reflects upon 4 aspects of the divine feminine. As I chant each round, I like to think of it as bringing in Her power on all four sides of me. The mantra appeals to these four aspects of the Goddess: She who gave birth to all creation, She who is forever, She who cuts through darkness, and She who nurtures.
The full mantra is:
How to do a meditation with this mantra to bring out your inner divine shakti power:
Sit in easy pose with a straight spine and place your hands on your heart center (right over left). Close your eyes and chant the mantra, feeling it vibrate at your heart center and feeling your navel point gently contract in time with the mantra. Feel the energy of the Infinite Goddess surging through you and continue for 5, 11 or 31 minutes.
One of my favorite versions? Snatam Kaur’s 11 minutes powerhouse version of Adi Shakti on the album “Divine Birth”. It’s sure to connect you to the power within!
