I did just that very thing a while back, listening to the mantra in the background all day and your post inspired me to do it again... and a few hours into it, a breakthrough happened, opening the way for work I've been wanting to do for a while. Om Namaha Shivaya!!! <3

A therapist that I've seen on and off for a few years is a Yoga instructor, and has experience with some more traditional  Yoga lineages (so, not just "yoga in name only"). She told me when I was sharing with her some of my work that involved editing a text that dealt with Shiva, that she didn't even like looking at the words "om namaha shivaya," or the yantra, because they scared her. It feels so natural to me, though. I forget sometimes the power that these mantras have. Thanks for helping me to make changes!!!

Isn't it? To me, it reinforces that we are called and guided to certain energies, and away from others. Of course, perhaps she had her own issues with fear of change to contend with. Even therapists have their own issues! Some are actually very unwell. It seems that the public forgets that sometimes. The one I speak of here seems unusually healthy as far as therapists I have met, go. The Great Magnet has a great track record of protecting me from really bad ones, which I really appreciate. I can only get in the door where it's good for me, if that makes sense. Otherwise, my gut, or the Powers that Be, keep me away from the bad ones. I am thankful for that.

 

Anyway, from what I have learnt, Shiva was the first Yogi, so, wouldn't it make sense for a Yoga instructor to honor Shiva at least a little bit? But, he and Kali-Ma can be scary as fuck, so, I get it, why someone would not want to go there, but the way I see it, eventually we all have to accept the "darker forces" whatever Godhead or terminology one wants to use. That's the balance of life and death, creation and destruction. :yingyang:

 

I've just been letting Youtube loop Shiva mantras since the other day. I'm going to switch over to Kali soon. I'm ankle-deep in a long-brewing transition so I need all the help I can get. :cauldron04:

I know what you mean... I, personally, love to let the Shiva mantras run when I'm doing deep healing work on myself... calling in Shiva seems to give my healing work and energy a big boost. Of all the gods I work with (Hekate, Bast, Brighid, Jupiter, etc... and I have incredible adoration for them all and abiding gratitude) I seem to be the most aligned/closest to Shiva.

 

Speaking of Shiva, I always really appreciated the occult information about the god on this page:

Maybe it's all the pot I've smoked (haven't had it in a while, though, Shiva where you at LOL), but, I know what you mean! I wouldn't make a claim like that for myself right now because I am really only starting to dive deeper into my relationships with multiple Deities of multiple pantheons, and I am learning that there is a lot that I don't know about who has been watching out for me for a very long time, but, Shiva made himself known to me a long time ago, and I still even have a lot to learn about Him! & Thank You for that link! The whole website seems helpful too :)

I discovered this lady a while back, but she just popped back on my radar today, and this is her latest. I'm choked up. The joy and liberation coming from this video and track is lifting me. I love "grandiose" music like this. Gets me every time.
