As the Queen, you are complete and fulfilled. Your energy is healing and deeply nurturing. The Queen is confident, self-aware, loving, and fierce when needed. She builds her queendom by teaching others by example. The queen walks her talk, not for others but herself. She honors what she has been through, and wears her past experiences. Not as a burden, but as a crown. The Queen will seek no approval nor does she has the urge to please. To reach her higher goal, she gives an offering of being disliked. To embrace your inner Queen, you must overcome resistance and welcome change. The Queen is waiting for you at the bottom of the cliff. Once you jump, you’ll see a new life forming in front of you.
During your life you have experienced hurt, and created coping mechanisms in your relationships. They were there to protect you from hurt, but are they still serving today?
The Queen serves Love. In Tantra this Love is Devotion. A surrender to a higher intelligence, a divine nature, God. Through devotion love can flow. Your ‘work’ is an offering to the Divine. The heart has the power to transform. Everything going through the heart is purified. In Shakti Tantra you start with transforming darkness like judgments, self-hatred, shame, negativity inside of you, and let your heart expand. Expand, expand until you reach existence beyond the idea of right and wrong. When we ourselves can transform darkness into light we can do the same in the world.
Love can be experienced even when the heart is full of sorrow. When you surrender and courageously accept exactly where you are now, love is the collateral beauty that resides. It isn’t even the emotional pain itself. It is in when you resist the pain, that the pain becomes most painful and sometimes even unbearable. To connect fully to the heart is the radical bravery to face every aspect of yourself. You take full responsibility for being the creator of your reality.
In this training we will work on the element Air, which corresponds with the fourth chakra in our energetic body. Love, compassion, empathy, connection, playfulness, lightness, and our inner child are qualities of the heart.
Shakti Tantra teaches us that all polarities in life are complementary. Masculine and feminine, anger and compassion, death and birth, love and fear. There are the same force but just the other side of the coin. The masculine gives from the first chakra, whilst the feminine gives from the heart. We will learn how to work these polarities to create an abundance of loving energy.
The Queen recognizes resistance as moments of transformation. We work with the energy of the Divine Mother. Sometimes she is Mother Mary, sometimes she is Ma Kali. The Universe urges you to face your hardships so you can shape your own destiny and influence others to go to the next level. You will learn to create a strong connection through empathy with your Inner Child. The Queen and your Inner Child walk hand in hand in your New Paradigm.
