The Role of Feminine Prana Shakti as Divine Mother: The Womb of Creation
Women are usually intuitively connected with their motherly, caring, loving, compassionate heart center. These are the integrative, self-balancing, dominant female qualities, in-born in the prana body of both males and females. Meaning, that either can be dominated by male or female qualities, but females can generally access their connection to Divine Mother, Prana Shakti more easily than males. The male consciousness operates aggressively through ego-mind. It creates mental, emotional conflicts and stress. It prevents us from connecting to the in-born, integrative, intuitive, healing power of the Cosmic Mother, Prana Shakti. It can be the “door” for health, well-being, and transformation for both sexes. Clearly, 85% of all illnesses such as anxiety, depression, insomnia, diabetes and obesity, represents just the surface symptoms. The cause of which remains hidden in the stress-producing, conflict –crating ego-mind. The entire body of the universe as well as our own body is animated by Shiva Consciousness and Cosmic Mother, Prana Shakti. This is the meaning of Ardhanarishvar Shiva that represents the union of Shiva and Shakti. This union is the experience of Samadhi. All human suffering is caused by abusive use of Prana Shakti. All health problems we face in our personal life and on our planet today, is caused by abusing the feminine power of Cosmic Mother, Prana Shakti. She is the womb of creation that provides our sustenance, survival, health and well-being. The purpose of the practice of both yoga and Ayurveda is to initiate healing through the union of Shiva and Shakti. It represents the self-balancing, harmonizing, unifying forces of body, mind, heart and soul. This is where healing comes from the very core of our Being. It restores balance between the male and female polarities of rationalizing left brain and intuitive right brain, Ida and Pingala nadi, sun and moon breath. In Sanskrit we call it Swasthya, being established in the Self, the Shiva Consciousness.
