Hindu folklore dictates that Shiva is the transformer and the superior leader of the Trinity (Trimurti) he is part of. His third eye and the ash that is rubbed all over his form are probably his most well known characteristics.
A multitude of myths exist about him. He is Adiyogi but he is also ‘all that is not’. Yogis are those who have lived the life they were meant to live. He is the reason for the change in the way death and annihilation is perceived. The concept of defeating the ego comes from him.
Shiva manifests in various ways. His unseen self is seen in the Lingam which represents the male aspect of the energy of creation.
It is the most well known form and is present in most temples and homes. This year is Shiva’s year so it will be a fairly destructive one and be prepared for all sorts of transformation.
While Shiva’s blessings may not seem like blessings when they come, you will soon realize that whatever is happening is essential for you to grow and develop. He is the primal energy of man and the sun is one of his symbols.
If you’re only tapping into your male energy, it will tire you out and you will be under a lot of stress. Make sure that you are balancing both the male and the female, Shiva and Shakti within you. They must be working together in equal partnership.
If Shiva and Shakti do not match, there will be confusion and disorder in your life. You can stabilize them by meditating. Take some time every day, practice breathing and feel the energy flowing through you, washing all your worries away.
This might seem like a lot to take in but it is just the tip of the iceberg. This year will be a complete roller coaster so be prepared for anything that might happen.
Whatever comes your way will have its own purpose so take it all in and analyze it as deep as you can.
