The Goddess without Stereotypes

As the world is moving from patriarchal religion based philosophies that exonerate a ‘male God’ towards an acceptance of the divine feminine, we see the word Goddess used ever so often. People typically see this word ‘goddess’ as the ‘outer energy’ of the world, the dancing ‘shakti’ of visible nature, the movements of seasons, cyclical moon-phases, changeable vibrations or flow and ebb. This is the traditional viewpoint of the Goddess, one which is still somewhat patriarchal and based in an indirect or subtle belief in a masculine God viewed as the ultimate creator and the feminine goddess as his Maya or vibration.

In this viewpoint that has been marketed to us through centuries of time, we have seen the Goddess as physicality in the form of a beautiful maiden or glamorous idol with gorgeous clothes, a desirable Aphrodite, Radha, Venus or Voluptas, or as a gentle and docile motherly being embodied as Sita, Kwan Yin or Lakshmi, a giver of love, or if we are feeling somewhat feminist, a warrior goddess such as Durga, Athena, Nike or a dark crone Kali and Hecate. Her traditional role – to give energy or Shakti to the masculine, to be the power of Shiva the God, to dance as the world in the form of Radha who loves the superhero Krishna along with his numerous Gopis and wives, or to be the provider or nature (Prakriti) to the unending needs of man (Purusha). She has been seen through the ages as the Kundalini or serpent-like energy controlled by the supreme Lord who wraps her above his head like river Ganges in his crown chakra. The goddess has been equated with the energetic universe that although vast and infinite, has an ultimate creator above her, visualized predominantly as God the masculine force.

How about if we start seeing the Goddess as the Supreme Creator, with the word ‘Goddess’ containing ‘God’ within, who is manifest as the world or universe, yet also simultaneously beyond it as the Source? How about seeing the ultimate being as a feminine and not just masculine form, as Goddess and not just as God? How about saying ‘Oh my Goddess’ instead of ‘Oh my God’ sometimes in your daily routine? We do not see a lot of people, including new age spiritualists do that very often, and although we might argue that the the word ‘God’ is used by us as a term beyond gender, why not try to see the word Goddess too in such a higher light. How about seeing the earthly manifestation or ‘avatar’ of the Supreme Creator as the female Christ consciousness born of the heavenly mother Goddess and not just as the Son of the heavenly Father.

This shift in consciousness or perception helps us let go of all these stereotypical images of the goddess as not just a sexual, reproductive and fertility based icon of seasonal shifts and earth energy, but also a higher trans-personal being with the masculine and feminine encased within herself. No longer is she merely a gender based ‘ultra feminine’ personification, but also a gender-free consciousness that can express as male, female or transgender, a consciousness that exists within  everyone. After-all gender is a notion that we all can and should rise above!

Enjoy this meditation to help unite the goddesses of the world into the higher Source being for personal ascension and earth-healing through Oneness consciousness and allow the divine feminine in you return to her true awakened self!

Six Reasons To Let Go of Labelling and Stereotypes

In society we are often told to conform to certain norms instead of being open and focused on discovering the truth about ourselves and the universe. From the time we are born till much later into adulthood we are programmed to worry about what other people think of us. We label ourselves and others based on generalised notions of what we ‘should’ be like with respect to age group, gender, physical traits, social status, race, beliefs, career and behaviour styles.

From being labelled as ‘aloof’ or ‘autistic’ when we are not socially malleable, to being labelled as ‘weird’ or ‘a freak’ when you are unique in your way of thinking, to being called ‘disabled’ when you simply have different abilities, labelling can often lead to a feeling of being judged, a suggestion that there is something ‘wrong’ with us if we do not confirm to social parameters and an indoctrination into social structures through various systematic approaches and interventions that are designed to mould us into what others want us to be.  Here are some reasons of why and how we can avoid some of the traps and pitfalls of labelling and stereotypes.

  1. Focusing on what really matters: Instead of worrying about whether you ‘fit into’ social perceptions regarding how we should behave with respect to our age, gender and the unwritten rules of social conduct, we might find that focusing upon our health, wellbeing, inner joy and self-development could be far more beneficial as these are things that actually matter for each and every person in the world. Instead of these core or essential values we have been distracted by social expectations of how to talk, how to dress and how to behave that keep us engrossed in outer life instead of delving deeper within ourselves.
  2. Evolving  higher than the norms: If all people were to ‘fit into’ specific parameters of thinking and behaving nobody would ever discover anything new. We would constantly imitate the crowd instead of learning new things, trying new ways of living or progressing higher than generic social norms already prevalent in society. We would cease to grow and evolve any higher than the level most people are at if we continue to conform to whatever is believed, practiced and preached to the masses by our predecessors. Innovation, self-realization and transformation can only take place when we have the courage to step out of the matrix of widely prevalent routines, rules and expectations.
  3. Complete self-acceptance: Society would always say something or the other regarding how we are and how we are supposed to be ‘vis-a-vis’ other ‘normal’ people.  Stereotypes regarding the right clothing, makeup, choice of vocation, body-type, hobbies and interests can sometimes feel restrictive. We all develop different personalities, talents, physiques and points of view over time and none of these by themselves can totally define who we really are. We need to keep expanding our minds and allow ourselves to not be limited by partial notions of who we are that labels confine us or make us feel inferior. We are more than just a gender, a profession, a belief system, a physical body, an ethnic group or nationality. By letting go of all such labels we can embrace a full acceptance of our true self.
  4. Equality: Stereotypes regarding gender, spirituality, race, cultures can all influence us consciously and subconsciously with false ideas such as ‘pink is a feminine colour’, or ‘white is more positive than black’, or that ‘gurus are men with long beards’. Skewed notions such as these can often result in gender and racial discrimination through ways that seem totally normal as per rules commonly accepted in society. Notions of what is masculine or feminine in fashion, in terms of career and false perceptions regarding ‘black or dark being evil versus white being good’, or that the creator of our universe is ‘God or He and not as Goddess or She’ need to be discarded from our everyday thinking, language, choices and spirituality.
  5. Staying non-judgemental: By letting go of outward perceptions based on appearances we can avoid judging each other through our limited thinking. We need to focus more on who we are instead of judging other people as ‘good’ or ‘bad’, ‘right’ or ‘wrong’, ‘deserving’ or ‘undeserving’. We can never truly know another person because we hardly know enough about ourselves. The people we come across in our life often reflect our inner thoughts and characteristics that are hidden within us. By realizing that everything we encounter is either a reflection or a shadow of our own energy, we can let go of judgements and embrace our light.
  6. Awakening our consciousness: Most scientific and spiritual breakthroughs and enlightenments are thanks to those people who did not conform to outer conditioned ideas and focused instead of raising their own awareness of who they are. Through meditation and self-realization we automatically begin to shed all our labels and dissolve into a higher light of truth. We begin to remember that our soul does not belong to any race, any gender, or any of the narrow definitions that are used to divide us. Instead we start uniting through unconditional love by realizing our interconnection as one consciousness that is flowing within all beings. We also begin to work on developing inner skills, powers and qualities that pave our path towards the light.

8 Ways to Manifest a Higher Reality

We all create our own realities through our consciousness. Our world is a direct reflection of our energy states. All frequencies are present in our multi-verse, however we can choose to focus upon higher vibrations of love and light to manifest a higher reality of our choice. Here are some simple techniques:

  1. Choose Higher Vibrational Food: As the old saying goes, ‘What we eat is what we become’. Positive foods that are ethically sourced, non-violent, organic and nutritious can heal us better than medicines can, in the long run. By directly affecting our inner state positive and lighter meals can help us attract kinder and healthier situations in our life. We also learn how to not be a slave to our conditioned taste-buds that were programmed in the ‘matrix’ to enjoy things that were unhealthy and kept us trapped in lower dimensional thinking.food-photography-2834549_960_720.jpg
  2. Breathe Right: By paying attention tour breath and staying relaxed and natural, we can maintain a calmer and more meditative state throughout the day. We can therefore stay calm and unperturbed by negativity and give energy to those ideas and actions that matter most to us and our wellbeing. We also find that staying meditative and relaxed helps us access our intuition and remain in touch with our higher self to create a loving and positive reality.human-730204_960_720
  3. Channel Healing: We all are constantly channelling energy through our mind and body. By gaining awareness of how energy is constantly flowing through us, we can consciously send positive energy to those ideas that bring us joy. At any point of time throughout the day, we can visualize something positive and send healing energy through our palms into the situation we are visualizing, to create health, understanding, success and all good things.hand-2634753_960_720
  4. Speak Uplifting Words: While it is necessary to be honest and expressive, we can also learn to speak our truth kindly and in a way that uplifts everyone instead of being judgemental or harsh. By speaking through higher awareness we can raise vibrations higher so that all concerned can come together by focusing on those positive values that unite us as one. Often we end up discovering and relearning universal truths that touch our soul deeply and allow love to flow. bokeh-2097353_960_720
  5. Look Within Yourself: While we are out and about in our daily business of life, our focus can sometimes be on the way others are behaving, or in outer appearances of the world. By looking within ourselves we can draw attention back to our heart centre to focus on higher life lessons while staying detached from unnecessary energies that might distract us from our life-path and purpose. This also helps us radiate kindness and light for healing of those who may need it.yoga-3053488_960_720.jpg
  6. Higher Thinking: We all know that ‘thoughts become things’. By focusing on thoughts of love, peace and happiness, that are for the greater good of all concerned we can energize our reality and heal our world, one thought at a time. Not only what we think, but the inner state in which we hold our thoughts matter. Intentions made in a state of higher frequency or meditation can powerfully manifest into existence by connecting us with our ‘creator energy’.universe-2736507_960_720.jpg
  7. Higher Vision: While it is easy for us to feel sorry or sad about negative things that are happening in the world, we need to also realize that through empathy and love we can hold the most positive and highest frequency vision for our planet and allow our higher consciousness to ripple out gently into manifestation. Visualize yourself floating higher and sending loving vibrations into the world.heart
  8. Know Thyself: In the lower vibrational ‘matrix’ we were conditioned to believe that we exist as limited beings for a limited period of time. Through a deeper realization of who we are we find that we are existence itself. We are not separate souls living separate lives but one divine consciousness dreaming up the worlds that we share together. This awareness helps us believe more strongly in our inner power or ‘shakti’ that births a new higher vibrational reality.arrangement-2794696_960_720.jpg

Seven Ethical Guidelines for Spiritual Practice

Whether you are a spiritual practitioner or a seeker of spiritual healing services, these few guidelines can be helpful in clearing misconceptions and encouraging a more peaceful experience in spiritual practice.

1. First of all Harm None: Spirituality is all about developing loving compassion and forgiveness. Any harmful practice such as cursing, revenge or sending negative energy even in retaliation or as a show of power is not spiritual in nature. Some people believe that it is alright to send harm back to the person who sent it your way, without realizing that doing so would only multiply the negative energy circulating in our matrix in which all of us are deeply interconnected. Negative energy is meant to be shielded out and transformed to something positive through inner work instead of reacting to it.yoga3

2. Reasonable Exchange: On one hand some people believe that spiritual service of any kind such as healing, meditation, training or reading, should be provided totally free. On the other hand there are practitioners who charge unfairly high amounts by pretending to have ‘special’ powers while the truth is that anyone can learn and practice these skills over time through personal dedication. Spiritual services, especially if carried out by qualified, dedicated practitioners at a private practice will require sustenance through either sufficient donations or service fees. It is fair to make a reasonable exchange in return of the attention you receive to compensate for the focused time and expertise you take from someone.hands-1947915_960_720

3. Integrity: It can be shocking to see lack of honesty and integrity among some spiritual professionals where ethics and positive energy are supposed to be the core teachings. Just as stealing money or goods is unethical, stealing someone’s intellectual property such as brand name, contacts and course content is unethical too, yet this has been commonplace in the crowded spiritual marketplace. Another kind of stealing is psychic ‘vampirism’ where feed off the time and energy of others. Some false gurus have been adept at charming clients to attract financial benefits, or sexually seducing young apprentices in the guise of sacred union. True spiritual practitioners are brimming with energy and radiate their inner light instead of manipulating others for personal pleasure or gain.meditation-1384758_960_720

3. Break Free from Superstition: In the past spiritual powers were attributed to spirits, demons, gods, angels, fairies or mysterious occult forces. Today we have realized that we all can manifest reality through our deep beliefs, focused thoughts and higher consciousness. Whatever we believe in becomes part of our reality, including various spiritual and otherworldly beings in our grand illusion. Certain religious and magical folk have in the past exploited masses for power or material gain by playing upon fears of devil or hell, and promising divine wish fulfillment or heaven in return of obedience and servitude. A spiritual practitioner on the other hand works on improving inner frequencies, raising consciousness and allowing people to realize their inner truth.meditation-2486763_960_720

4. Self Empowerment: Some gurus and cult leaders have attempted to maintain a higher stature by claiming that others require ritualistic conversion, cult initiation or energy transfers given exclusively through them. Having followers that are completely dependent on you and cling to every word you say without their own personal awakening is not a sign of a true master. In truth spiritual energy or universal consciousness flows freely everywhere with each person always connected to the source or creator. The best initiation, attunement or baptism is self-realization and personal spiritual development which helps the individual in awakening to the infinite self.yoga1

5. Inner Path: Some people are confused between religion and spirituality without an understanding that spirituality is an inner path unlike religions which are about following messages given by others. Belief in or worship of outer deity, their life-stories, mythologies and commandments is religious and not necessarily spiritual practice. Meditation and personal enlightenment is about going within ourselves and learning who we are through awakened intuition because everything that we see outside could simply be an illusion that we are yet to awaken from.yoga2

6. Inner and Not Outer Power: Spirituality is not a power or ego trip to gain mastery over others, but a lesson in compassion and inner transformation. Some people try to gain spiritual power with the sole aim of gaining followers, popularity, financial success or worldly power. In truth, the only power we need to develop is the power over our own mind. The illusion that succeeding in the outer world is the purpose of our life is bound to break some day when we return to our self and realize it is all about how truthful and positive we are from inside. universe-2736507_960_720

7. Unity Consciousness: Divisive or limited beliefs regarding gender, sexuality, caste, culture, race, genetics, lineage, religion or language are not a symbol of true spirituality. Unconditional love that focuses on universal peace, unity and equality is awakened through spiritual and meditative practice that connects us with out common inner core. we all are from the same source which is our true self and we can all return to oneness through spiritual awakening.cigar-galaxy-2401996_960_720

 

Everything I know about ESP – Russell Targ

‘You don’t have to eat porridge at your guru’s feet or pay anyone thousands of dollars. Remote Viewing is a natural ability like vision or hearing. If you work with a friend you can quickly become psychic…’ confides Russell Targ (straight-up physicist, psychic and the go-to-guy for US intelligence agencies for two decades) in this brilliant and witty talk where he concludes, ‘Remote Viewing is not about finding stuff but finding yourself…if you look into the mirror in the morning and think who you see in that mirror is who you really are, you are in for a lot of suffering. Who you really are, is non-local awareness independent of space and time and if you can quiet your mind and move your awareness besides the conditioned awareness of what it says on your business card, into naked awareness, you can start to experience the universe as it is.’

P.S. I got to know about Russell and his work from ‘The Mind Race’. Russell, an avid biker is legally blind, was senior scientist at Lockheed. This TED talk was cancelled.

Six Ways How Meditation Can Save the World

Meditation is a daily essential practice of inner stillness and peace that can illuminate our consciousness. Our life just like our dreams, is a manifestation of our conscious or subconscious mind. When we meditate we transform the unconscious into pure consciousness and become more aware of how we are creating our universe from within. If this subject was an adequate part of our learning at home or schools, we would certainly see the following changes in our world:

  1. Consumerism to Creativity: Totally dependent on things outside for fulfillment, we saw how mindless consumerism including unhealthy food and lifestyles eroded the natural resources of our planet. What if people found peace and contentment within themselves and enjoyed the beauty of nature instead of destroying it for selfish short-term gains? Through meditation we have more mindfulness where we resonate with the vibration of creator consciousness. Through a love of nature we enjoy the universe with inner balance instead of splurging on artificial things to fulfill hollow lives. We start creating more beauty, joy and abundance instead of being mere victims of consumerism.earth1
  2. Disease to Well-being: Stress and strain of living a busy life along with pollution has affected most of us to some or the other degree in the modern world. Diseases such as cancer, heart attacks, obesity, diabetes, asthma, allergies and many associated illnesses have gripped individuals who believe that hospitals and medications are the solutions to the problem. Truth is that the root cause of the issues we are facing are in our own lifestyle and daily practices. When we meditate and return to nature, we start manifesting healthier lives and choose the right places to live in, the right foods to eat, the right sleep schedules and intuitive living and holistic healing to prevent diseases and create more permanent wellness from deep within.yoga1
  3. Crime to Compassion: Harming others is impossible when we learn to be kind from within instead of only through outer rules imposed from authorities. When we begin to discover our inner self through meditation and peacefulness, we automatically become more kind and compassionate towards ourselves and this reflects in the way we treat others. We enjoy gentleness and loving energy instead of negative thoughts. We no longer indulge in overthinking, leave alone plotting, scheming or hurting others.kind
  4. Corruption to Truth: Even in what used to be spiritual countries once upon a time, we have witnessed the heights of bribery, lawlessness, dishonesty and corruption. This is because our true inner spirituality and inner truth were replaced by outer religion, outer rituals and rites, without an understanding of the inner laws or ethics that are the core of our own awakened heart. With an inner awakening through meditation we can rediscover our own inner truth within our spirit. We become a witness to ourselves and are honest and sincere even when no-one else is looking by becoming more mature and responsible towards ourselves.eyes
  5. Addictions to Freedom: It is not only drugs and alcohol that are addictive but also gadgets, wi-fi, foods, media, movies, cosmetics, thoughts and people. Not all the things we are used to are good for us. Through meditation and inner awakening we discover the universe is indeed within us and we need not depend on anything from outside to set us free or provide us any thrill or joy. We discover the source of true joy and happiness from the depths of our spirit. We begin to liberate our soul from all the burdens and chains that weighed us down.meditate
  6. Violence to Peace: Anger and violence are products of an unfulfilled spirit that seeks vengeance or domination. Use of power to rule over others has been a part of society only because people have not yet discovered that ‘others’ is illusion and all of us are actually One. We discover a loving connection with the universe through meditation to be at peace instead of judging, condemning, avenging or destroying ourselves. Imagine if everyone learnt meditation and discovered their inner treasures of peace and love how different the world would be!dove-2967593_960_720
