The Glorious Descent of Shakti

If I were to choose a favourite phase of the awakening process,
I would always select the Decent of Shakti.

The Descent of Shakti is often called the bringer of deep wisdom — a natural, effortless, abiding and spontaneous wisdom that simply emerges whenever you need it.

Both phases — Kundalini and the descent — are beautiful, powerful and sometimes challenging and confusing. But the descent has qualities of embodiment, groundedness, functionality, practicality, wisdom and radiance that I find particularly precious and glorious.

Blessings for your sacred awakening,

Myree Morsi Describes Her Attuned Relationship with Shakti

What is the Descent of Shakti?

The Descent of Shakti, like Kundalini, is an awakening process where Shakti consciousness moves through the body and energetic system of a person. 

In the descent, divine consciousness, or Shakti, descends directly down from divine source above and enters the crown of a person’s head. This is often experienced as golden light, white light or energy, or even as energetic alchemical “quicksilver” streaming down onto and into a person.

This is a process of profound, deep spiritual purification and transformation known in many spiritual traditions around the world.

The ancient mystical Christians described it as being struck by tongues of golden light, or fire, upon the top of the head, and that the consciousness of Christ had descended upon them. 

In India, the ancient Rishis called it “Descent Of Shakti,” with “Shakti” being that pure liquid light, consciousness and energy of the divine.

How Does the Descent Happen?

Once Shakti has entered the crown centre, it pours through the aura around the body and gradually, carefully descends through the upper chakras (energy centres and nerve plexus). 

Then it slowly, gently makes its way through the lower body and chakras, eventually travelling out of the chakra points in the arches of the feet before grounding itself into the earth.

At this point, it starts to deeply transform a person’s relationship with the earth — integrating, being grounded, and being embodied in a whole, complete and truly amazing way.

After this descent process is finished, some of Shakti travels back up through the aura to the crown. Then, Shakti continues this cycle downward through the body again, deepening and supporting one’s awakening each time.

3 Ways to Experience the Descent of Shakti

1.

The Descent of Shakti can be initiated on its own. You can have only a Descent process occurring in your body, no Kundalini rising beforehand or simultaneously.

2.

It can be activated as a part of the Kundalini process, thus placing you into a dual-activation process.

Often after Kundalini has been progressing for some time and is active in the upper chakras, through grace it can trigger the descent process to begin.

Once the descent begins, a person can have a Kundalini and a Descent process occurring simultaneously, with Descent of Shakti moving downward from the divine through the body, and Kundalini moving up from the base of the spine toward the divine. You then have two different flows and Shakti processes at once. 

This can be felt as balancing, soothing and supportive. Plus, the integration, play and marriage between both processes is exciting!

3.

You can have the Descent of Shakti initiate after Kundalini has completed and integrated.

This was Myree’s journey. Her Kundalini blew out and finished, then was followed by a two-year period of integration. 

Toward the end of that period, when she was happily out socialising and enjoying the freedom of not being involved in a deep Kundalini process, Shakti’s descent initiated. Myree did not seek this process out, but was simply meditating on a spare bed at her mother’s house a few days after Christmas when she saw a slender, golden stream of light travel down from above and enter the crown of her head. She knew straight away what it was, and was admittedly ungrateful and frustrated because she knew the sacrifices it would ask of her. 

It immediately began transforming her brain centres and awareness, collapsing parts of her way of functioning in the world so new ways could eventually emerge that were more in alignment with the Shakti process that was growing in her. 

She found herself pulled deeply inward, intensely away from the world, and back into a big, internal transformation. It was powerful, unstoppable, at times deeply perplexing, disorientating…and ultimately very beautiful, all the way to completion.

The Characteristics of Shakti’s Descent

Shakti is purifying.

Like Kundalini, the descent process is a purification process where Shakti moves through the body, chakras and auric systems to cleanse and transform the entire human system to embody consciousness. 

Shakti transmutes and releases negativities, karma, trauma, fears, beliefs, thought forms, emotions, ancestral energies, cultural energies, past life experiences, genetics and everything else that has been stored in you that stands in the way of Shakti and awakening occupying you completely.

In Myree’s experience, the Descent of Shakti completes the Kundalini ascent experience by bringing new structure downward into a system cleaned out by Kundalini. 

Kundalini takes your system and your ego apart, layer by layer, to support the flow of consciousness toward the divine. It dissolves your identity structures and supports you to be able to function with increasing high levels of consciousness and vibration. 

The Descent brings new structure in and puts your system back together. But you are surrendered to the complete reconstruction process and not in control of how you are put back together. She is a master craftswoman and puts your new experience of awareness and reality together in a careful, peaceful, inspiring and creative way. 

The descent brings wholeness and completion to Kundalini’s beautiful, sacred purification of consciousness.

Shakti is Practical

Shakti seeks to support your life in the ordinary world, so she is highly practical. 

She wants to ensure you’re able to fulfill however you’re called to express your awakened consciousness and share its blessings, in your life and with others.

The Kundalini process can sometimes be too fast, ungrounded, too shocking for the system or psyche, or the final blow out of consciousness is too much for your system to integrate. It can leave people struggling for functionality and structure, internally and externally.

Perhaps it’s Myree’s practical farm-girl upbringing, but she holds deep appreciation for the embodied functionality of the descent. Especially since she has seen so much struggle and trauma from people who have a Kundalini process that leaves them fearful of being able to support their own survival.

Myree had to work hard to keep up with her life through her wild-and-rapid rollercoaster Kundalini. But functioning in work and life was much easier during her Shakti Descent.

You’ll find that the practical functionality of the Descent process amplifies your experience of Shakti and her divine qualities such as peace, love, compassion, awareness, open heartedness and wisdom.

Shakti vs. Kundalini: What's the Difference?

The Kundalini process is the much more commonly experienced form of awakening process than the Descent of Shakti. (But it’s no less precious and amazing!)

Kundalini:

⟡ Kundalini awakens from its dormancy at the mulabunda, the base of the pelvis, and moves upward along the spine and through the body. 

⟡ Kundalini seeks to merge with formless divine by travelling up the body, through the upper chakras and out through the crown of the head, directly to divine source.

⟡ Once Kundalini merges with the divine, a person can experience ongoing states of deep awareness and big gaps where consciousness expands beyond the limited experience of the body for powerful spiritual insight.

⟡ Kundalini transforms your awareness of who you really are, your deepest nature as consciousness.

⟡ Kundalini is often a hot and fiery experience. It can be volatile, wild and extremely painful if the process is running too fast or too unregulated in a person’s system.

Descent of Shakti:

⟡ Descent of Shakti provides a loving remedy and natural balance for Kundalini’s bypassing of the body and its feelings. The descent supports you to be functional, embodied and in relationship with planet Earth.

⟡ This downward momentum brings a soothing, grounding, heaviness and solidity to the body, to the integration of consciousness within your body, and thus to your experience of yourself.

⟡ In Myree’s personal and professional experience, Descent of Shakti is a much gentler and more easeful experience than Kundalini, with far less difficult body symptoms. It goes slowly and does not seem to pulse or surge Shakti into the system and cause suffering in the ways Kundalini can.

⟡ It’s a process of consciousness entering and anchoring into and through the cells, so it’s constantly bringing consciousness, wisdom and energy into the body. It’s mostly an embodied, grounded process that is friendly with and to the body as it brings you into a new relationship with being in your beautiful consort, your body.

Summary:

Kundalini, with its upward momentum, can give people access to vast states of consciousness, emptiness, bliss and awakened awareness. The descent brings you blessings of expansive states of awareness, oneness and grace. But they’re experienced more from within the body, emanating out of the body and into the universe.

The Downside of Kundalini Without the Descent of Shakti:

⟡ Kundalini, with its upward momentum, can give people access to vast states of consciousness, emptiness, bliss and awakened awareness. 

This can also lead people to be highly ungrounded and out of their bodies. They can experience themselves more as awareness located outward, above and beyond the body. 

Consequently, they might struggle to have the body perform well in practical, everyday tasks.

⟡ Most spiritual traditions emphasise having this expanded state of oneness and emptiness, which is beautiful and important. 

Yet much of spirituality has created a strong focus on being out in mystic states of awareness and not integrated in a functional way with the body. 

In fact, this can often be dismissive, unkind and critical of the body, marginalising it and preferring only consciousness.

Both processes awaken us, both have immense value. But the Descent of Shakti is the soothing balm after Kundalini’s fire.

“Something wonderful happened when Myree told me to cultivate my relationship with the Shakti energy. 

I instantly felt the blissful energy pour into my forehead, more distinctly than I have since my awakening began years ago. 

It started with my whole being dissolving and turning into the brightest, purest light imaginable. Then I felt a deep peace and bliss that completely and lastingly settled all of the wild Kundalini energy that had been racing through me for a few days. 

I loved the way Myree suggested that the Shakti energy is ‘someone’ who deeply cares about me. I always thought of ‘it’ as more of a ‘process’ before. Myree’s perspective works much better for me now.”

“The depth of help Myree continues to render is as wide as it is deep, beyond any helper in this process I have ever met or worked with. 

For over 3 years Myree has slowly, patiently, compassionately, and skillfully helped me stabilize a very unstable Kundalini Rising/Descent awakening process. Before Myree, my process was only worsening, driven in part by my own condition and life decisions, and in part by following guidance from well-intentioned helpers. 

The combination of Myree’s knowledge from her own journey with this process, her training as an in-depth process psychotherapist, and her own commitment to skillfulness and humility creates a safe environment for the psychological, energetic and consciousness element of the awakening process. 

Her clients are facilitated to fully participate in their own awakening and stabilizing process while being in charge of their own lives. 

Most importantly, Myree is mentally and emotional healthy, unlike so many helpers in this very challenging area of psychology and spirituality. She does her personal work and it is noticeable. If you are recovering from unhelpful or possible harmful prior help from others or spiritual groups, Myree can be a central figure both in your recovery process while helping your awakening and stabilizing process move forward toward living your life most fully!”
