Mother Divine (Devi) - the creative aspect of the Absolute field of Pure Unbounded Consciousness.
Creative feminine energy (shakti) contains the mechanisms that make the unmanifest manifest.
Awakening shakti will enliven your consciousness while increasing the amount of bliss you feel in your daily life, the willpower you have at your disposal and your capacity to act in accordance with the need of the time.
The sacred feminine is the source of creation. That which is responsible for all that is continuously being created.

Japa - a practice we use with clear intention and focused effort to help correct the mistaken intellect, refine our contemplative thinking spectrum and enhance specific fields of awareness/consciousness. On the other hand, Vedic Meditation is designed to be effortless and expand the mind beyond thought all together. Two techniques that compliment each other quite powerfully, but are not interchangeable.
Japa is an active meditation. We can look at Japa as our strength training outside of a daily deep meditation.
Japa means “rotate” and in this practice we move our fingers over a string of beads (called a mala) to focus awareness + concentration as we repeat the mantra. Every time we complete a repetition of the japa mantra, we move to the next bead. A full mala has 108 beads and a full Japa is 108 cycles of the mantra.
Japa Meditation counters the mind’s tendency to become overwhelmed by the continuous stream of inner chatter. As one slowly moves along the mala with the mantra, the mind becomes rooted in that same unhurried, calm movement.
Japa Meditation directs awareness into a clear focus, both objectively and subjectively.
Japa is very helpful for awakening shakti and enlivening their own state of consciousness.
