There are 5 types of power that are involved in the play of cosmic/individual creativity.
individual:The power of being absolutely present. We are able to experience both ourself and the world around us.
Cosmic:The experience of being sentient
Individual:The simple feelings of being relaxed or content to the joy of falling or being in love, to deep states of meditation.
Cosmic: The feeling of bliss or ecstasy at all times
Individual: Will is the precursor of action. We have to have the will power and determination to make things happen. It is our source of creativity.
Cosmic: It is the feeling of being a part of the universal whole.
Individual: It is the capacity to know to discern, to plan, and make judgements. It is the flash of intuition that reveals new information, makes connections and gives insight. Always seeking knowledge and wanting to learn more.
Cosmic: It is the capacity that gives natural order to the universe and allows life-forms to self organize. Every cell has a has the power of knowledge.
Individual: The deliberate acts that we perform. Having an idea and seeing it into fruition.
Cosmic: The power to do anything!
So when we look upon ourselves and see the different area of powers how often do these powers come through? Is there different powers that we wish we could have more of or less
Shakti Goddesses show sacred powers within us that connect us to the forces of the cosmos that we can rely on for help. In other words they are a tool in our human form that help us feel a deeper connection to the spiritual form. When we work with Goddess energy we have the ability to allow energy to flow through rather than pushing against a resistance or behaving in a destructive manner.
Types of Goddess energies:
The manifestation of Shakti can open you up to your own heart.
Because she is hidden, in order to act in the world, the great goddess needs us to ask for help. The grace of the Goddess is a two-way stream. There’s the movement from the subtle-the movement of grace descending into the human world. But it can’t land unless there is a calling from below. That calling can take different forms: prayer, meditation, song-but the calling has to be there.
It’s as if the protective, transformative power of the divine waits, just out of reach, unable to intervene until we summon the courage or the desperation to throw ourselves at her feet and ask for help. In asking for Shakti's grace we bring her forth.
