Divine Rapture and Sexual Rapture!

Our Kundalini energy is an energy force that’s primary objective is to get us connected. Connected within ourselves, connected to each other and connected to the Divine and all of life. When we ride the ecstatic waves of kundalini we fall in sync with the universe, we live in a state of Grace.

When our sexual energy ( kundalini shakti) rises and sparks the seed of love in our hearts, she feels like an inner lover. All the great mystics who have experienced spiritual liberation and egoic freedom refer to their experience of this intoxicated union with the divine as lover, as Beloved. Even though the mystics may not be engaging in sex with another human, their body mind system is experiencing a full bodied ecstatic orgasmic state, known as the great passion, referring to the alchemical union of the Divine Feminine (Kundalini Shakti, Goddess) and the Divine Masculine (Shiva, God) within.

Divine rapture and sexual rapture are both experienced within our sexual chemistry and whether we are experiencing sexual union with another human or divine union with God/ Goddess within it is felt as a full bodied ecstatic orgasmic state. Spirit uses our sexual chemistry in the alchemical process,we may not even be sexually engaged with another but we feel fully sexual and fully juiced up in an ecstatic state of divine rapture.

This state of intoxicated union with the divine as beloved, is the state of consciousness that inspires the ecstatic poetry of Rumi, Kabir or Hafiz. The ecstatic masters understood what is was to submit to rapture, to let go and dissolve into union. That is, allowing the ecstatic sublime currents of divinity to melt the ego’s sense of separation and open to the sacred marriage.

The sacred marriage occurs by dropping completely into the energy of the divine mother and father, through the spirit of devotion. We also need to be fully prepared to feel all the emotions that arise as we open to embodying the divine energies within us. This process gradually, clears any energy blockages held within our emotional energy centres our chakras, until it completes an alchemical cycle. When we feel the emotion is felt, the energy block is cleared and the divine energies can flow into that specific chakra, lifting the vibration of the chakra to its highest potential expression. When the union occurs, we experience inner illumination and a raising of consciousness of various levels of our lives.

Yogic Sleep!


“I will not die an unlived life.
I will not live in fear
of falling or catching fire.
I choose to inhabit my days,
to allow my living to open me,
to make me less afraid,
more accessible;
to loosen my heart
until it becomes a wing,
a torch, a promise.
I choose to risk my significance,
to live so that which came to me as seed
goes to the next as blossom,
and that which came to me as blossom,
goes on as fruit.” ॐ

Shiva Samhita!

yoga philosophy
The Shiva Samhita or the compendium of Shiva, is an ancient anonymous Sanskrit text on the practice and art of Yoga. It is one of three surviving classical Yogic scriptures. The other two yogic texts are the Hatha Yoga Pradipika and the Gheranda Samhita. The Shiva Samhita is considered by many scholars to be the most complete Yogic compendium to date. The Shiva Samhita is a dialogue between Lord Shiva and his consort, Parvati. This discourse includes detailed instructions on how to perform various Yoga asanas, mudras, pranayams, meditation, tantric practices and even the finer points of abstract Yogic philosophy
The text is beautifully written as if the reader is listening to a conversation between Shiva and Parvati. Shiva is the symbolic representation of the creative and destructive power of the divine masculine. His consort, Parvati, represents the gentle feminine creative power of the universe. The Shiva Samhita discusses many of the esoteric details of the practice of Yoga. In fact, the text discusses eighty-four different asanas, four of which are described in detail, along with the benefits of mantra repetition, Yogic philosophy, five different types of prana, tantric practices, and the art of meditation.
The chapters of the Shiva Samhita cover various aspects of the practice of Yoga. The word “Yoga” means the union of a human soul with the divine. Some of the aspects that are covered in the chapters of the Shiva Samhita are several methods of liberation, the structure of our 72,000 nadis, and the awakening of the Kundalini Shakti energy. Additionally, the Shiva Samhita outlines the importance of having a true Guru who can awaken the Kundalini energy safely, as well as describing the subtle body and the movement of prana.
There is an explanation in the Shiva Samhita of hand mudras or sacred gestures, eleven of which may substantially support a Yoga student in reaching liberation. In the text, Shiva also clarifies obstacles that a seeker may encounter on the spiritual path and outlines techniques for working with both those obstacles and our shadow aspects. In addition, the Yoga of sacred sound or Nada Yoga is discussed along with the practice of mantra repetition.
Many scholars believe that the Shiva Samhita was written between the fifteenth and eighteenth centuries, in or around Varanasi, India. It is a beautiful text that enumerates and explains how to practice and succeed on a classical Yogic path.
Even though the text discusses many esoteric aspects of practicing Yoga, Shiva himself emphasizes that even an ordinary individual, or family, living in the middle of the maelstrom of the world can benefit from a regular practice of Yoga.
