Encompassing so many elements, but in its simplest form, it's a level of awareness linked to the divine feminine spirit. It's devoid of ego, judgment or harm, and deeply tied to nature, mysticism, wisdom, intuition, purity and matters of the heart.
In hinduism, they focus a lot of their attention to the various god and goddesses that come to represent a variety of thing’s in the human condition and different characteristics and traits.
Devī (Sanskrit: देवी) is the Sanskrit word for "goddess"; the masculine form is Deva. Devi – the feminine form, and Deva – the masculine form, mean "heavenly, divine, anything of excellence", and are also gender specific terms for a deity in Hinduism.
By aligning with the many Gods, you understand the different traits that embody these Gods and therefore integrate it into your current values and beliefs. Through observing the traits of a goddess, it becomes instilled in your entire being.
Nowadays in modern society, with the use of tinder and all these other online resources, woman have lost the purity and respect in many ways and same with men. Topics of desperation for love and sex stream between both masculine and feminine. And by understanding and connecting with your inner truth and essence, you can return back to love and realise that nothing is outside yourself, all the answers are within and we don’t need to be searching for love. It is already what we are.
Parvati, Lakshmi, Saraswati, Durga and Kali embody the main traits within Goddess Energy.
Hindu goddess of love, beauty, purity, fertility and devotion.[ Parvati is the wife of Shiva - the destroyer, recycler and regenerator of universe and all life. She is the mother of Hindu gods Ganesha and Kartikeya.
In Hindu belief, Parvati is the recreative energy and power of Shiva, and she is the cause of a bond that connects all beings and a means of their spiritual release.
Goddess of wealth, fortune, power, luxury, beauty, fertility and auspiciousness.
Providing the beings with all kinds of material abundance. A protector and a bestower. She bestows upon deserving people according to their past karma and degrees of devotion. She also protects from ill health and adversity.
“Beautiful goddess seated on a chariot,
Delighted by songs on lustful elephants,
Bedecked with lotuses, pearls and gems,
Lustrous as fire, radiant as gold,
Resplendent as the sun, calm as the moon,
Mistress of cows and horses —
Take away poverty and misfortune
Bring joy, riches, harvest and children.”
The goddess of knowledge, music, arts, wisdom and learning.
Embodying concepts of intelligence, consciousness, knowledge, creativity, education, enlightenment and power. Depicted as a beautiful, light- skinned woman dressed in white, signifying the purity of true knowledge. She may be depicted near a flowering river, relating to her early history as a river goddess. She is dressed modestly without ornaments or jewels, representing her preference for knowledge over material things.
Very simple but fully embodied in her truth, she sits in her wisdom, having floated amongst the rivers of knowledge and consciousness for a long time, she now has come to her own individual eternal realising, sitting in her truth of purity and higher consciousness.
Kali represents a dark goddess of mind, body and soul. Full of mysticism, portrayed as a mysterious goddess of death and destruction. Kali cannot be tamed. Her story, complex and far reaching, she cannot be fit into a box. Transcending a typical western narrative of good verses evil.
Characteristics and habits of acting uncontrollably, killing hundreds and thousands of people, cutting off their heads and sucking their blood. Keeping their heads tied around a necklace around her neck. However in the face of Shiva, she surrenders in full love, and grace, and changes her entire being. Her duality grants respect to the audiences, being able to embody both light and dark. Being fully in the mysticism of tantra, sexual lust and killing and in contract holding a strong smile and sense of purity.
Kali continues to defy all attempts to be tamed and domesticated. Thus creating the goddess within her, of being able to stand her own ground, and know her own inner truths, untouched by the audiences views, she embodies her own inner wisdom, transcendence and infinity.
Symbolising the divine forces. A positive force that eliminates suffering, fighting against the forces of evil and wickedness.
Sanskrit for fort or a protected and unreachable place. Durga protects mankind from evil and misery by destroying jealousy, arrogance, prejudice, hatred, anger, greed and selfishness.
Penetrating dark forces with light of truth, the image of the sword of light cutting through all darkness for the good of the world.
Hindu mysticism tells many tales about different archetypes that are representative of all of us. Within each of us, we embody a variety of different archetypes as different expressions of who we are. It is through full acceptance of totality as a whole, that we become an expression of the whole, we simply become all of the archetypes, we become a complete God. And within this God realm we are broken down into thousands of archetypes surrounding us, thus, those around us are always embodiments of ourselves, we are the people whom surrounds us, and they are us. We are the universe, embodied, in totality.
These Goddesses along with the Gods, are all different parts of us. Tales I’ve been told throughout my journeys unto now.
If you find these topics and subjects interesting, would love to hear back from you.
If you have any enquiry/ questions/ feedback or corrections, I’m open to that to, as mysticism is highly subjective, and there are many different tales of the same thing.
