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.
