It was from her abode of the Muladhara Chakra that Shakti had ferociously arisen, her keeper had finally released her; but her release was not going to be plane sailing to say the least. Muladhara Chakra or the “Root chakra” is the lowest most centre in the etheric energy system. The Muladhara Chakra is located at the lower end of the spinal column, where the energy kundalini sits patiently, dormant and unconscious until her release.
Within this chakra you will find housed all the information that you have accumulated in your lifetime. It will be based on all the unconscious seeds that you have sown and the karma (actions) that you have conducted. It is a storage facility that keeps you unconsciously trapped in a cycle of play, pause and repeat. Only when you have become aware of Shiva and Shakti and attained a balance, is it safe for the storage facility to be opened. This is exactly what had happened when Shakti had been released from her prison. Everything that had kept me in a repetitive cycle for all these years had finally been exposed, you can only imagine what that would have felt like. Remember when I was questioning “Who Am I” you can now probably envision what I may have been going through. One minute everything was going perfectly well… “thats what I had thought” and then suddenly the next minute “ca-boom”. Everything I had ever believed was all thrown up into the air and I was left reeling with all the broken pieces. The jigsaw that I had been trying to put together for all of these years had just been restarted, but it was the revelations that came with this release that was going to change life forever.
When the Muladhara Chakra is first activated qualities that you have been unaware of can be suddenly released these can be either positive or negative in nature. Until it happens to you, you will not know what the experience is going to be like. A positive experience is accompanied by the feeling of freedom, joy, balance, happiness and an overwhelming completeness with oneself. A negative experience can be that of pure destruction, anger, rage and a consuming need to fulfill passion and desires. This is why it is so important that both purusha and prakriti are fully awake and ready to help with balancing of whatever experience you entail. All that I had to work on was slowly being released, the problem for me was that it was not happening at a slow and steady pace. I was finding I was being hit with everything in one go, before I had come to understand one of my demons the next was up and ready to show its head. “Just my luck” I would think, having always been impatient with everything previously I was being given a good dose of my own medicine.
Times had now become testing and I was being tested on all fronts, the feeling of being pulled in all directions is what I had been feeling like. Nothing or nobody could protect me from this, I had unconsciously created my own demons and I now had to consciously banish them forever. I was sure Shakti’s release was going to be a blessing, but at this moment in time my optimism was on a fine tether. I had to keep strong, I had to continue facing my fears.
