Yogi Tip #8, Meditation to Call Upon the Maha Shakti
Today not only marks the celebration of my birthday, but also Day 40 of the 40 Day Meditation Commitment that Shaa & I embarked on together. And let me tell you I am feeling super high!! It has been an incredibly powerful experience for both of us. The rewards we’ve been reaping feel so rich we’ve decided to continue this as a 90 day meditation.
So which meditation did we choose & why?
We choose a meditation to Call on the Divine Mother energy – the Maha Skakti, which we felt was perfect for assisting us during pregnancy. It uses the Kundalini Bhakti Mantra (Adi Shakti Mantra) to tune you into the Divine Mother frequency / Divine Feminine Creative Power & the primal protective, generating energy. It is said that by chanting this mantra fears can be eliminated & desires fulfilled.
We’ve both certainly felt these potent effects in our lives! The real felt sense of kundalini energy activating, removal of blocks of disempowerment, rushes of inner power & strength, connecting us once again with who we really are, our Sat Nam.
We thought to share it with you all because we love it so much. You can do this at any time to reduce your insecurities & call on your full shakti power!

COMMENTS: “Sing it today as a special gesture to the Maha Shakti. Merge in it. This is enough to take away your misfortune. This will carve out of you a woman. Woman needs her own Shakti, not anybody to it. Today let all the past die and let prosperity live. Let you die and let your power live.”
“I would like to ask you a question. Isn’t there a time in your life when you have a very miserable situation, and disastrous environments confront you? It comes in everybody’s life. Well, this is a Maha Shakti mantra, and when a woman chants it, God clears the way. This is not a religion, it is a reality. Woman is not born to suffer, and woman needs her own power. This is a Maha Shakti mantra. Just utter it once and see what it does.”
“I feel you must have some time when you are in difficulty. Rather than calling on help from friends and prayer, call on Maha Shakti and see what happens. When India and Indian woman knew this mantra, it dwelt in the land of milk and honey. When they forgot it, it became a hell. Only the forgetting of this mantra has given birth to MTV. We forgot this mantra and MTV was born. But when woman knew this mantra she was a living goddess. Without Maha Shakti, God cannot manifest anything. This is the mantra.” ~Yogi Bhajan, Woman’s Camp, New Mexico, July 4 & 5, 2000.

Here’s what Snatam Kaur says about this mantra meditation:
“A lack of faith in the flow of the heart! The word “lakh” (pronounced like luck) means 100,000. So how do we turn our “lack” into “lakh”? The answer is simple but not easy. It is to meditate every day on the Adi Shakti to change your inner vibratory frequency. Within each woman is an infinite well. She knows no bounds.”
