SHIVA symbolises consciousness, the masculine principle.
SHAKTI symbolises the feminine principle, the activating power and energy.
This practice is about finding the balance and union of the masculine and feminine energy. The challenges and the softening within. The strength we need to build and the sweetest we search for to make light of everything. Bring yourself into alignment with a great play on these energies that lead to balancing on our crown chakra, known as Sahasrara. It is said that you have become awakened and open your consciousness when you directly align with relationship of balance.
