Unleash Your Shakti Power

Many people ask me, "What is Shakti?" Shakti is a Sanskrit term that means sacred life force energy. Shakti is also commonly referred to as the feminine aspect of being. In my work Shakti means all that and I also use it as an acronym to help women remember the key aspects of their divine feminine energy.

S is for SOURCE
: the essence of who we are as divine beings. We come from Source (or Spirit, Sacredness, or Soul) and we return to it.

H is for HEART: who we are is love. As women, our ability to love and be loved, feel our emotions and relate from the heart are key to awakening our Shakti.

: located in our womb and in our yoni, our ability to attract and allow is key to our receptivity and power as women.

K is for KUNDALINI: this is the life force and sexual energy that lives at the base of our spine. As we activate our sexual energy we can use that power to manifest, create and love more deeply.

T is for TRUTH: we must know our truth and speak it authentically. This energy lives in our throats and helps us claim who we really are as goddesses, lovers, mothers, and leaders.

I is for INTUITION: the still small voice, the inner knowing and vision that we need to listen to, need to slow down and be still enough to hear. It's the inner guidance of Shakti.

As you can see, the Shakti moves down our body (from "source to yoni") and also moves up our body (from "root to crown") following the chakras or main energy centers of our body.

I have two upcoming FREE teleclasses on "Six Secrets to Unleashing Your Shakti Power" where we'll go into more discussion of Shakti. To register, visit my site at

Blessings on your awakening!
