Gate Keeper | Shakti Enters A New Space

Gate Keeper | Secret Mirrors

Patience has always been seen as a virtue and who better too show it to me than the gate keeper. The gate keeper had been seated quietly in pose, just waiting patiently for the time to come to hear his long awaited order. A gentle voice now whispered “son its time open the gates for me, let me light up the path that will lead you to heaven”. As the gate keepers gates crashed open, a burst of intense energy (shakti) surged straight through, it had just entered a new space, fiercely it burst forth free and electrifying. It was at that very moment that I came to realise how important Shiva had really become. She needed controlling and it would take a conscious effort on my part to ease her down slowly.

I can only imagine from this standpoint that if Shiva had remained dormant, and by some random chance Shakti had passed through the gates then destruction would definitely have been on the cards. Fortunately for me the gate keeper had kept things held in place. Only when both Shiva and Shakti were active could Shakti enter her new abode. Her journey needed guidance but where was she going? Why did she need close vigilance? New questions were arising; I knew now though that the answers would reveal themselves exactly when needed. Fear no longer drove me, I had become fearless. I felt free and anew, this change was amazing and I was naturally evolving to keep it that way.

All this time Shakti had been sitting dormant in her home of the muladhara chakra, her son ganesha had been guarding her very closely. She was a coiled serpant waiting to be set free, freedom was what she had been seeking but only when her patience was under control would she be granted her wish. Only her keeper could order her to pass, only then could kundalini begin her ascension back to her origin, her source. Her journey was not going to be easy; but knowing that Shiva was by her side she would find comfort with every step she took. There were going to be many challenges on her new path, each one exposing her to new battles. It was in these battles she would come to learn about life and it would be from these lessons she would experience all that life would have to offer her. Shiva would always be silently guiding her when she was faced with adversity and it was in this solace she knew that she was safe and secure. It was in his arms that she would find a new love, a love for who and what she really was.

The real journey had just began, one of immense importance, one that could reset everything I had ever known. The jigsaw was slowly piecing together and one day it would finally reveal its secret.

‘It’s your road, and yours alone. Others may walk it with you,but no one can walk it for you’– Rumi

The key to our very existence is in the relationships that we create. That is all there is too it. We are not here for any other greatness, but that of creating harmony and balance throughout humanity.

We all have to work to contribute our talent and skills for the benefit of others. It is our duty to do this and it should be done unconditionally, with no expectation of results or rewards. We should all strive to do the best, be the best and bring light and happiness into the lives of those that we serve.

It is in the service of others that you will come to find your salvation. You will come to feel the moment of presence. Make relationships your first and only goal and you will change reality for ever.

In Is The Only Way Out

In Is The Only Way Out | Secret Mirrors

The reality that exists for you can only be experienced once you have taken the time to turn inwards. The external world that we all live in is a creation of other peoples inner world. The inner world they have dreamt of has become there outer reality, unfortunately a lot of us spend our lives living in there world and not our own.

We end up living in there dream and not our own. So you can imagine why there is so much turmoil in the world. People have to live in a controlled way to keep others dreams a reality.

Turning inwards and finding yourself will open you up to a safe sanctuary of your own. Here you will become the controller, the master of your world. It is from here that you will learn to fully play the game that the outer world has going on. But you will now come to understand that you and only you are in full control of your own destiny.

Find your calling and share it with the world. If it positively benefits you, then it should also positively benefit humanity.

Ganesha | The Gate Keeper

Ganesha | Secret Mirrors

Ganesha is a deity often referred to as the remover of all obstacles. He is the son of Shiva & Shakti and the gate keeper of the Muladhara Chakra. Ganesha has a unique and bizarre appearance which draws you into questioning his origin, but it is the symbolic representation of his features that really bring about change. Ganesha has many stories as to his true origin, of which can be found in many a literature. What is of more significance though, is how he ties in with Shiva & Shakti and what part he plays in there union.

To start with let me begin by discussing some of this deities characteristic features and the type of message they are trying to convey. You will see from the outset that the first striking question that glares out to anyone viewing an image of ganesha is the fact that he appears to be half human, half animal. This is for sure a thought provoking observation and one that would easily question anybodies intellect. However once you look at what it is maybe trying to depict it can start to reveal some very smart symbolism.

Out of all of the species that we see in the animal kingdom, the elephant is known to have some of the most favourable characteristics known to man. They are known to exhibit an excellent memory, as they say ‘elephants never forget’, they are found to be gentle in nature, wise in there demeanour and they seem to be very patient listeners. You will agree these are very admirable qualities to find, and this is exactly what the elephant head on a human body is trying to present. Even though we maybe classed as human in physicality, we should all at times try to change our characteristics, in order to evolve and become better individuals. These changes no doubt will bring us closer to revealing a lot about who we are and what our purpose in life really entails. The improvements we should all try to work towards are as follow, each represented symbolically in lord ganesha.

  1. The large elephant head, depicts that we should always try to think big. We should strive to always remember that there is something bigger than you and I and no matter what we strive for, ensure that we are becoming wiser with each step that we take.
  2. The large ears, small mouth and small eyes are a reminder to listen more, speak less and concentrate. To listen is to learn and to speak is to only give opinion based on ones own experience. It is sometimes better to sit still and concentrate, only to give opinions when asked. But remember in giving opinions, you are merely recycling information which you have stored from personal experience and it is sometimes of no use in the present moment.
  3. The trunk is a representation of how one should try to always remain efficient and adaptable. Life is in constant flux and we should all try to move in harmony with its ebbs and flows. Resistance should not be an option and all change should be embraced as positive progress.
  4. The vehicle of choice is a mouse, small yet fierce in numbers. It is a gentle reminder that in life there will be many obstacles especially those of desire. What is important to acknowledge here is to ensure that when desires do arise, be conscious of them, let them pass without giving them any energy. Ride them out and keep them under your full control.
  5. Usually you will find some sweet delights next to ganesha, usually a reminder that the world is your oyster and it has many rewards to offer those seekers who are looking to fully enjoy its opportunities. Just remember to consciously enjoy the worldly delights so that they do not entrap you in a world of illusion.

So these are some of the many qualities that individuals should try to attain, if they want to really see progress on this wonderful journey. But you may ask why should I want to change? Am I not already perfect? Well the answer to these questions really lie in you. Any obstacles you face in life are lessons waiting to be learnt, they are put before you as a learning tool and they will only ever cease to exist once you have consciously acknowledged them. Until you embrace there presence, they will just keep repeating themselves. It is you who is creating the obstacles and it is only you who will be able to dissolve them. The magic will only happen once all obstacles have been totally removed, this is when ganesha will finally open the gates to his kingdom. It is in the sanctuary of the muladhara chakra where he sits patiently, patiently for the day to come where the orders are given to finally let kundalini energy (shakti) begin her ascension.
