Goddess Diana ~> Awaken Your Third Eye The Ajna ✵ Chakra

Many Masters of Tantric Yoga may advise you it is not a good idea to rush Kundalini activation. They will advise you against focusing on the higher chakra bodies before achieving complete balance in your lower chakras.

The Kundalini Shakti (our sleeping Consciousness or our sleeping snake) is coiled up at the base of our tail bone. It is through gentle awakening that the coiled snake slowly awakens touching each chakra system upon her slow ascent up our spinal column to consciously and slowly open each of our lotus flowers with some prodding.

There is truly no harm on awakening the higher chakras first. In fact if we can recognize our godliness first and we are aware that we are complete unto ourselves and we are responsible for our karma and we create a karmic link in all we do and say then there is no harm in activating our mind first.

Our intuition (our 3rd eye) should be fully activated so we can make sound decisions for ourselves and not rely upon the advice of others whether it be random strangers on the street, friends or colleagues. Yes it is always good to have a sounding board but an imbalance in this chakra can make you too reliant and dependent upon others never fully trusting your own inner guidance. It is not good to just hand or give your power away to another. How can anyone else know you the way you know yourself.

Being fully self aware is the first step to honoring your self divinity. Trusting your gut intuition and allowing yourself to make your first choice and honoring your inner voice consistently is a way you can fully activate your third eye.

if you honor your intuition and honor your own Sacred power within you you are sending that inner light and helping to activate your latent ability to be a good and responsible Seer. Sometimes all it really takes is to know yourself intimately and if you see your inner beauty with clear vision then your third eye is aware of it powers of manifestation.

When you set simple goals for yourself and see reality with clear vision and honor the reality you can create and manifest any project your heart desires. it is this self knowing and self acknowledgement that changes and brightens your ajna.

The act of closing one’s eyes physically and envisioning yourself serene and beautiful and fully aware of yourself is the just the very beginning. You can imagine a beautiful lotus flower with her petals gradually opening up and glistening there in the center of your forehead. Each petal is forming soft dew at the tip and each drop of dew is magnifying your pineal gland and sending sweet nectar into your medulla Oblongata.

You can envision a beautifully peaceful bluish white light beginning as just a pin prick in the very center of your brow and growing with intensity and brilliance as you breathe deeply into your mind’s eye.

Any such exercise can send healing love into your sixth Chakra and you can softly encourage her awaking with positive self affirmations such as ~>

I am a full empowered God/Goddess I am able to see and envision clearly what it is I wish to manifest.

I am a fully awakened Being of Divine Light and I am able to create my own reality

I am an intuitive being capable of sensing all dimensions that might not be fully visible with my naked eye but are fully visible with my third eye that is gently awakening each day and each night.

These are just some random affirmations but making a choice to be open to other realities and understanding your role in your own karma is the beginning of opening up your third eye.

Why does the chakra system play such an important role in tantra?

We are both shiva and shakti male God and female Goddess. In tantra we are taught that we are a microcosm of the entire Universe and our bodies are a manifestation of pure energy from a common Source that was born from a uniting of both Shiva and Shakti. During 5000 B.C. a Cult was established around the Hindu God Shiva and his Goddess Shakti. Shiva was pure consciousness but could not transform energies around Him. Shakti was the embodiment of pure energy but she could actually affect and shift energy so when the two divinities met and connected sexually and spiritually Shakti gave Shiva a true solid form and gave birth to the Universe. Tantra is a practice of pure love; it is this joyful dance between Shiva and Shakti and this mutual exchange of male and female essence that creates a balance of beauty and unconditional love amongst us. If you can see the divine presence in yourself and acknowledge the female and male entities inside you you have the power to create a playground of delight all within your being. When you see the divinity within you, you can recognize the divinity within another and love someone else with that blind devotion and human empathy that will create a bridge between human physical life into a higher realm of ethereal space.

Tantra means weaving and so in the practice of weaving, we unify the fragmented pieces of ourselves like precious silken threads we honor and hold sacred. We honor the scary parts as well as the joyful pieces into this luminous quilt we learn to cherish and explore. Tantra also means expansion in that we learn to grow spiritually as our energy is unified and our Kundalini Shakti awakens us into our Higher Being.

I’d like to include this quote from Ajit Mookerjee that I found in a passage of Margo Anand’s book “The Art of Sexual Ecstasy”:

Shakti is the Power that creates and destroys,

the womb from which all things proceed and to

which all things return…….Shakti is spontaneous

vibration, the fullness of her blissful state and the

out bursting of her joy compelling her toward self-


Now you can understand what a strong role the Goddess or female energy plays in Tantra. Without Shakti we can not exist and the roots of all Tantric practices lie in a strong devotion to the Goddess in all her forms. The Goddess Kali is considered the Dark Goddess or Goddess of destruction and she is portrayed as a black goddess standing upon human skulls and her hands are clenching skulls, yet if you examine more closely she is the protective goddess taking care of her children and fiercely staking her claim willing to defend her creations from those that would destroy. I like to think of Kali as being the mother earth — nurturing those that would honor and bring life back to her. When we respect the Earth goddess she is mother, healer, care taker and guardian of us all. When we take her for granted or dishonor her she turns into the destroyer and yields her fiery side removing chaos. She becomes the multi armed goddess willing to cut away anything or anyone that does not serve her. In this way the Destroyer becomes the Creator of all because she will remove anything from her path in order to give birth to a gentler way of life. It becomes not an end but the end of a world as we perceive it. Each day we spend time creating and giving life to our thoughts manifesting and dreaming and scheming. Each day we destroy and we create and we recreate and reweave a tapestry connecting and sometimes disconnecting as we need to so we can become an authentic being!

So what exactly are Chakras and how do they play such a crucial role in Kundalini Shakti’s awakening? First we must define what a Chakra is. In Sanskrit a chakra is a wheel of light. A chakra is known to constantly open and close spinning clockwise and counter clockwise and since it is in a state of constant flux it alternatively serves as a filter which allows pure pranic energy to enter or be blocked out depending upon our needs. Sometimes a chakra may close itself off or shut itself down if it encounters too strong an energy, or an energy it deems harmful. During these times the chakra is in a closed state in order to protect itself. At other times the chakra may be overactive and will stay in a state of remaining open but somehow a chakra will “know” what it needs in order to maintain homeostasis. These chakras are interconnected to each other and they each have an affect upon the next chakra body all sharing an important role in the balancing of our physical and emotional well being.

Each chakra is associated with a specific color, function, sound and symbol or yantra.

Here is a detailed account of each chakra and their functions:

A. MULADHARA CHAKRA (first Chakra)


The Muladhara Chakra or foundation is located just above the anus (the perineum) and it is an earth element which rules our material drive and motivates us to provide for ourselves. If this chakra is well balanced we feel secure in our own bodies and our power to make things happen. This chakra rules elimination and responds to the sound Lam. The yantra or geometric symbol for this chakra is a yellow square. The main sense this chakra rules is our sense of smell but the working organ for this chakra is the anus. Muladhara Chakra is the seat of Kundalini Shakti and she resides as a coiled snake goddess awaiting her awakening. The base chakra also houses the three most important Nadis or energy channels in our spirit body. The Ida, Pingala and Sushumna originate in the kanda, the fibrous material beneath the Muladhara Chakra. When these areas are stimulated through tantric breathing they travel upwards till they reach the Ajna Chakra which resides between the brows. The Ida and Pingala Nadis terminate in the left and right nostril and continue to charge up energy until reaching the crown chakra opening a state of deep bliss and a transcendence of time and being.

B. SVADHISTHANA CHAKRA (second chakra)


The second chakra or sexual chakra is located above and behind the genitals and its element is water. Its function is sexual drive and procreation so in a healthy manifestation of this chakra one feels an openness and a strong but “healthy” feeling of aliveness when this chakra is stimulated. Indications of a closed chakra will be a feeling of numbness if this chakra is touched. The yantra for the second chakra is a moon color crescent and the seed sound is VAM. The literal meaning of the name is Dwelling Place of the Self and if this chakra is open it can enhance our creative spark and our own inner fantasy realms. The ruling organ is the tongue and the sense that is stimulated is our sense of taste. The organs that work here are the genitals and so when we stimulate this chakra with conscious kegel pulsations we activate this chakra. The daily practice of holding the Bandhas (muscle locks and tightening of our anal and genital areas) will activate this chakra and super charge our bodies preparing and opening up new channels of sensual pleasure and healing.

C. MANIPURA CHAKRA (third chakra)


The third chakra is the navel and it is a fire element and the seat of our will power. The name for the Manipura Chakra is City of Jewels. This chakra represents our drive to get things done and our digestive tract. It is also the seat of our emotions and so if we feel a sense of balance and harmony in this chakra our digestive system should be balanced but if we are feeling distressed or out of control then we can develop major illnesses such as ulcers. The seed sound is Ram and its ruling element is fire so its predominant color is a fiery red and the yantra is a red triangle. The predominant sense ruled by this chakra is sight and the organs that work the most for this organ are the feet and legs. Just as the sun is the source of life for earth so is our third chakra or naval chakra. It is here we come from our true strength and our own ego. The fire element that resides in this chakra fuels our body allowing us to absorb nutrients and gain health from the foods we eat and acts towards our own basic needs for survival but fire can also be highly destructive if it rages out of control.

D. ANAHATA CHAKRA (fourth charkra)


The Anahata Chakra literally means Heart Lotus and unstruck and not so surprising its ruling planet is Venus (Goddess of love).The location of the fourth chakra is to the right of the physical heart and the center of the chest. The element is air and the ruling force here is the love drive and its function is respiration. If this chakra is well balanced one can feel this surge of unconditional love and openness towards others and themselves. If there is an imbalance there can be feelings of self loathing or a lack of self worth. We can open this chakra with the seed sound ya and its yantra is a smoky grey hexagon with a triangle of green. The sense organ for this chakra is our skin and our hands are the working force behind the heart chakra. Despite our traditional conceptions of the heart chakra the color is not Valentine’s Day red but green the color of an emerald forest so lush and healthy it radiates unconditional love. Kundalini Shakti appears now as a radiant Goddess in the anahata chakra and she is garbed in a white sari sitting serene and centered. She has changed her form from elusive and coiled snake goddess into a goddess of selfless devotion. We can activate our fourth chakras by performing self less acts of service to others and it is normal for a woman to have a more open heart chakra when she gives birth to a child. If we can enjoy each moment of our life just as it is without self judgment or expectations we can heal and open our heart energies in a modest but profound way.

E. VISHUDDHA CHAKRA (fifth chakra)


The fifth chakra or throat lotus is the throat chakra and its element is the ether. The functions of this chakra are spiritual drive and it rules our glandular functions. If this chakra is well balanced we are able to clearly state our truths without fear of judgment. We can speak in a loving but truthful way at all times. If however this chakra is not clear we are afraid to speak our own truths and the resulting manifestation of a blocked throat chakra can result in throat maladies. We can activate this chakra through the act of singing or chanting. The seed sound is Ham and the yantra is crescent moon with a white circle around it. The predominant sense of the fifth chakra is hearing and the working organs are the mouth and the vocal cords. When we consciously meditate on opening our throat chakra we can gain a sense of inner peace, serenity, purity, a soothing voice and an ability to compose poetry! The act of singing or chanting creates a spiritual state of being and affects our hearts opening us in a way that prepares us for the vibratory power of our throat chakras.

F. AJNA CHAKRA (sixth chakra)


The ajna is our third eye (the point between our eyebrows) and rules our intellect and our ability to see and feel what is not physically there but what is spiritually present. The ajna is well balanced if our intuition is highly pronounced but if this chakra is out of balance we do not trust ourselves or our inner voice. The sound OM can activate this sixth chakra and if we visualize the yantra which is a full moon color and shape we can increase our powers of perception and open our third eye to activate Kundalini energy and the potential to receive enlightenment. If this chakra is blocked one can experience head aches or confusion. In the Hindu tradition men and women place a vermillion dot in the center of their foreheads to activate the third eye. Our physical eyes can perceive our current reality but it is our third eye which reveals the unseen or what will transpire. When a yogi is able to achieve kundalini shakti awakening the Ajna Chakra is fully activated and a pure light will form around the head and auric field. The yogi then enters a place where there are no boundaries of time but he becomes a seer having the abilities to visit all realms of realities past present and future. It is here we develop a sense of cosmic awareness and we cease to be separate entities coexisting; we indeed become the mirror of divine love to others and ourselves.

❤♥ Shaktipat ♥❤ The Descent of kundalini Shakti from Guru to Seeker ♡♥

If you were to take the time to search for the word SHAKTIPAT on google you would surely be bombarded by many different and Image conflicting view points all from masters like Osho to private practitioners who claim they have the ability to awaken your Kundalini Shakti (your sleeping serpent).

Let me be very basic and let us start with the word Shaktipat in itself.  Shaktipat is the descent of pure divine energy from Guru to student.  Shaktipat is a Sanskrit word with origins in Vedic religions of pure Tantric Yoga.  In order to activate the latent Kundalini energy that is within all of us we can consciously choose to meditate upon our awakening through pranic breathe and visualization exercises either by ourselves or through the assistance of a guru or Master we feel comfortable with.  If the student is open to receiving a healing the Master can simply pass on their aura which is advanced and energetically charged.  The seeker can receive a full kundalini awakening from the Master for as long as the Master is a clear conduit of energy.

Through consistent and patient practices the now awakened kundalini energy is enabled to travel from the first chakra (base chakra) to the crown chakra (7th chakra) at the top of the skull.  Once the crown chakra has been fully activated by Kundalini Shakti one is able to receive a state of Samsara or bliss in which complete contentment is reached and one has no sense of judgement of self or others.  There is no awkward sense of self consciousness nor is there any sense of anger or jadedness.  There is only contentment when the crown chakra lotus flower has been activated by Kundalini.  At this state of sacredness the journey of future kandalini awakening has now just begun!

Now you might be puzzled by the nature of Shaktipat itself.  How can a guru give a kundalini awakening to their student?  A master at kundalini exchange can simply transmit their aura through a glance, conscious touch, a gift such as a flower, a letter or simply by the intention.  One can even receive a luscious piece of fruit and if the fruit was activated with the Guru’s divine grace one can receive that activation simply by biting into the piece of fruit.

Upon reading these words you might be mystified and you might get a sense that I am a true romanticist but what we are involving here is the devise of true alchemy and the transference of energy from one person to the next through focus, intent and energy.

If you can understand that energy or (chi life force) is everywhere and it is free to anyone and everyone that will be open enough to call it in to their bodies then the idea of Shaktipat is a purely organic mode of healing through energy vibration and meditation.  We can simplify the theory even more by seeing the Guru as the uncorrupted Ego able to receive this divine life energy.  The Shaktipat in essence become the pure Channel and or Vessel and is able to transmit this pure life force into their disciples simply by not thinking and standing aside so that the pure energy can use the body as a vehicle only and be shared with others as a gift.

 How will you know if you Kundalini energy has been awakened?  Some symptoms may include the  following manifestations: you will feel an intense feeling of anger, fear, grief or intense joy; you might feel tingling sensations in your limbs, your mouth and your fingertips; you may feel a sense of unity with other people and you will no longer feel the separation between your body and another person’s body.  Maybe you will feel an overwhelming need to sleep or you have all this pent up nervous energy running through you now and you feel like running around and getting things done.  Kundalini rising is different for everyone but just know whether or not you hear tinkling bells or whether or not you feel waves of heat running through you each effort you make to open your Kundalini energy is time well spent.

You might also ask yourself what are the long term benefits of opening up your Kundalini energies? Wed ll perhaps you have some buried trauma something you have not examined in a while and holding onto that trauma is a burden to your chakra system  keeping you trapped so you are unable to evolve?  What purpose does this buried trauma serve you?  Awakening your Kundalini energy is a short cut to many years of psychotherapy.  The act of slow and consciously awakening your energy will help you shift from a state of numbness to a state of fully body sensory awareness.  During your newly awakened state you might see lights, you might see colors more vibrantly, you might hear sounds more profoundly in various pitches or you might even think you are going crazy but if you realize that these are all new tools for you to play with you will gain a new understanding of the Creative vital Being you truly are.

We are all manifestations of light and pure energy.  Once you are fully aware of your own energy in its purest form you will no longer fear the unknown but you will become an active participant in the flow of energy able to receive and transmit that force to yourself and others.

Thus in conclusion the descent of pure energy or Shaktipat is a powerful all embracing form of vital life force.  When we engage in Shaktipat we are sending good medicine to our Chakra bodies opening up gates that may have been closed down (for a while) due to trauma, ongoing depression or unawareness.  When you are fully awakened you become aligned to your Higher Being and you are aware of your inner light.  Questions that have been troubling you will be answered by your own inner guidance or intuition and you are a more perceptive being no longer shut off from the power of your own physical and spiritual bodies.

The descent of Divine Grace or Shaktipat touches and penetrates the very depths of a Yoga student’s being. The awakened Kundalini Shakti will transform all aspects of your being as chakra system.



♡Shaktipat ~> The Transmission of Kundalini Energy from Guru to Disciple ♥

I have been reading a lot lately about Shaktipat a Sanskrit word which broken down to its most base form means the transfer of Kundalini energy from one person to the next either by thought, touch,

mantra (sound) or even the gift of a flower of a piece of fruit.

Wow! I do remember one cold winter in Chicago and I decided I was going to explore Jamaica for

four months rather than suffer through another uninviting, bitter season so I signed up for a rainbow

exploration retreat for 10 days in Ocho Rios and I found ways to stay a lot longer on a meager $2,000 I had saved up in my bank account. I kept meeting friends of friends of friends and I was allowed to stretch out my 10 day trip to a full four months.

I met many interesting people during my stay and I enjoyed spending most of my time with the Rastafarians

finding their company the most relaxing and invigorating. I remember upon meeting each new person they would often present me with a piece of fruit namely an orange. I was puzzled of course and asked my friend Earl if he could explain this . He smiled and said it is what you present an “adept”.

I understood this to mean each person considered me worthy of receiving a gift and something like a piece of fruit represented chi or life force and it was an honor worthy of a God/Goddess to have a juicy orange presented.

Some people might take an inanimate object such as a mojo bag and they will use meditation, placing the bag near the heart chakra and they will invoke the bag with loving intent before giving it to their friend thus transferring their good intentions and their positive energy as a good will gift to the receiver.

At last I understand what Shaktipat is. Many gurus consider themselves as vessels. They are not the Source but they receive Kundalini energy activation from a higher power namely the power of the Divine Goddess. Shaktipats may consider themselves (accidental) transmitters of such divine energy and if they are properly humble they will see this gift as divine grace as they help awaken their students kundalini energy simply by focus, intent and or mantras.

The goal is to awaken the third eye the ajna and the gift is passed on from a guru to their disciple under the condition that the student is of an energy to be able to receive this gift. If the Master has a strong aura they can bestow their advanced kundalini awakening to their student but only if the student is open to receiving this powerful energy.

I believe each tantric session is a wonderful opportunity to open Kundalini energy slowly, sanely and safely. Shaktipat is broken down into simple words. Shakti is psychic energy and pata means (to fall) so if you translate this word you have energy that is bestowed.

There are many conflicting view points of Shaktipat but I wish to simplify it. If my intent is to help awaken my student then my intent can help open the opportunity for an awakening to occur. It matters not how evolved I am it is my conscious heart and my conscious mind and intent that sends that energy out there to the Universe for the Highest good that my student receives all the benefits from my teachings and my positive energy. I am sending out a radar — a clear signal the Universal Mother that I am willing to use my

body as open channel and vessel of healing for the greater good and that there is an equal exchange of energy between student and healer.

As I actively pulse my Yoni and as I send soothing nurturing air into my Heart Chakra I am activating my Chakra systems and amplifying my Shakti (female Goddess energy) so my student or partner is able to feel

the healing benefits of my chakras and potentially feel an awakening of their Kundalini energy.

If you can imagine that the Kundalini energy is a sleeping serpent coiled up at your tail bone waiting to be awakened you can envision her slow awakening and her slow ascent up each of your vertabrae. She slow uncoils and without harm she makes her slow journey up each Chakra system until she passes upwards to your sinus cavities reaching your third eye and filling your seventh Chakra with pure bliss and light allowing you to feel samsara a state of complete bliss and enlightenment.

If you can envision this for yourself then you can be your own Shaktipat and you can imagine and focus on all your Chakras filling with pure light and healing energy receiving all the Blessings from the Universe in your own time without pain and without a sense of rush.
