Animus Rising: The Power of Shakti Birthing Shiva

“The Hindus say that without Shakti, the personified feminine life force, Shiva, who encompasses the masculine ability to act, becomes a corpse. She is the life energy that animates the male principle, and the male principle in turn animates action in the world.” ~ Clarissa Pinkola Estes

It begins with an oath. Similar to the one Liz Gilbert ingeniously wrote in Eat, Pray, Love, “If you’re brave enough to leave behind everything familiar and comforting, which can be anything from your house to bitter, old resentments, and set out on a truth-seeking journey, either externally or internally, and if you are truly willing to regard everything that happens to you on that journey as a clue and if you accept everyone you meet along the way as a teacher and if you are prepared, most of all, to face and forgive some very difficult realities about yourself, then the truth will not be withheld from you.”

It continues with accepting that women are the most powerful force on this planet. Bar none, the single most powerful thing in the world is a woman’s power to procreate. Forget about money, possessions, military might. These are fragile and pretentious powers. True power is the ability to create. And no animal creates more powerfully than the female human animal.
