Incarnates Of Aphrodite: A New Ancient breed of Goddess

Incarnates of Aphrodite


As the balance of the inner Divine Masculine and Feminine stabilizes, there is a seemingly unusual breed of women coming to light. I say unusual, but I find her to be quiet usual, and fantastic. I have had the honor of meeting and loving a few of the Divine deLights via our many travels and open hearts and they continue to appear from the mists into our reality. Thank you Goddess for bringing me close to sisters who know and understand this flame that burns with in my depth!

I have found these women to all be creative and artistic, with a strong personality and intoxicating sense of humor. The laughter of one of these magical creatures is said to strum the strings of even the coolest hearts.
We love to see and be seen; to perform and transfer energies of joy, laughter and sensuality through music, movement and many other entertaining cultural art forms pleasing to the senses. This is done simply to watch the masses be in joy. To heal. To Open.

Most of them are complete nurtures and healers. She seems to know what you need, when you need it and has it before you before you knew you needed it.
She is kind, soft, and compassionate and carries an air of sex all around her. To lay with an incarnate of Aphrodite can be exhilarating, soft and sensual or for some, even frightening and spiritually awakening for others.
She is strong, some jaded, and can be hell on wheels should she feel the need. A secret air of purpose crackles the energies all around her.

She is an Incarnate of Aphrodite.

I’m left to wonder…..is this a new evolution of woman born of ancient blood and power? I think so. I believe these women are being called to service too. I find most of us are on intense healing paths, ones that offer us an intensity of lessons to learn for the purpose of being prepared to offer this knowledge in a more digestible manor to our fellow humans.

The greatest healing an Incarnate of Aphrodite can offer is in the Tantric sense. She can, and will if you allow her, help one to open their hearts. Not only with sex, however sex magic has been performed for centuries and is one of the most powerful modalities an Incarnate could offer, but with a garden of sweet, soft and compassionate arts. A lap to lie in. A shoulder to cry on. A friend to talk to. A Muse to inspire….

The power of these women has long been respected, forgotten and now seems to be coming again to the forefront of our society. It often elicits reactions of fear, anger and judgment. Married women hustle their husbands away; single men get the wrong idea. Although children adore the vibration of an Incarnate…they can sense the purity of the nurturing frequency.

However, its not only power that shakes loose the Fear monsters….its Love. Love is the ultimate healer, the ultimate shaker of shadows and in the end the only way. These women bring with them an intoxicating sense of Love. Seeming to embody the very essence of what it is to Love.

She Loves the birds song. And Laughs.
She Loves the drums beat. And Dances.
She Loves the Trees story. And Listens.
She Loves her breath. And she Sings.
She Loves her Divinity. And she Creates.
She Loves her fellow Human. And she Is.

So, when you find yourself nose to nose with one of these lovely ladies (or men), do not judge, or be in fear. Know only that Mother Venus is near. Black heart (cards)

Dakini Energies~

A dakini (Sanskrit: “sky dancer”) is a Tantric priestess of ancient India who “carried the souls of the dead to the sky”. This Buddhist figure is particularly upheld in Tibetan Buddhism. The dakini is a female being of generally volatile temperament, who acts as a muse for spiritual practice. Dakinis can be likened to elves, angels, or other such supernatural beings, and are symbolically representative of testing one’s awareness and adherence to Buddhist tantric sadhana.

According to legend, members of the Indian royal castes and the wealthy nobility brought their deceased to the far North to visit the Shrine of the Dakini (located at the foothills of the Himalaya). Other legends mention a Tibetan myth which says dakini first appeared in a remote area “pure of man”.

Dakini are timeless, inorganic, immortal, non-human beings who have co-existed since the very beginning with the Spiritual Energy. In some New Age belief systems, they are angelic. This New Age paradigm differs from that of the Judeo-Christian by not insisting on angels being bona fide servants of God.

Moreover, an angel is the Western equivalent of a dakini. The behavior of dakini has always been revelatory and mysterious; they respond to the state of spiritual energy within individuals. Love is their usual domain – one explanation for dakini or angels supposedly living in the sky or heaven. Manifestations of dakini in human form occur because they supposedly can assume any form. Most often they appear as a human female. By convention, a male of this type is called a ‘daka’.

In Tibetan Buddhism and other schools closely related to Yogacara and Vajrayana practises, a dakini is considered a supernatural being who tests a practitioner’s abilities and commitments. Many stories of the Mahasiddhas in Tibet contain passages where a dakini will come to perturb the would-be Mahasiddha.

When the dakini’s test has been fulfilled and passed, the practitioner is often then recognised as a Mahasiddha, and often is elevated into the Paradise of the Dakinis, a place of enlightened bliss. It should be noted that while dakinis are often depicted as beautiful and naked, they are not sexual symbols, but rather natural ones. There are instances where a dakini has come to test a practitioner’s control over their sexual desires, but the dakini itself is not a being of passion. Tantric sex may involve a “helper” dakini – a human female trained in Tantra Yoga – or an “actual” dakini. Both increase the level of erotic pleasure for the sexual participants by helping them focus on a non-physical state of spiritual joy and the physical pleasure of sex at the same time.

Iconographic representations tend to show the dakini as a young, naked figure in a dancing posture, often holding a skull cup filled with menstrual blood or the elixir of life in one hand, and a curved knife in the other. She may wear a garland of human skulls, with a trident staff leaning against her shoulder. Her hair is usually wild and hanging down her back, and her face often wrathful in expression, as she dances on top of a corpse, which represents her complete mastery over ego and ignorance. Practitioners often claim to hear the clacking of her bone adornments as the dakinis indulge in their vigorous movement. Indeed these unrestrained damsels appear to revel in freedom of every kind.

There is a connection between Dakini goddess energies and all of creational feminine dieties.

Some people believe the Dakini language is linked to that of Atlantis – the trilling of the high priestesses in the language of Vril.

Dakini is the Goddess of Life’s Turning Points. Distillations of archetypal emanations, the Dakinis represent those essence principles within the self which are capable of transformation to a higher octave. Dakinis are ‘sky dancers,’ heavenly angels devoted to the truth (dharma), woman consorts of and partners with the god-creators of India and Tibet. Dakini serves as instigator, inspirer, messenger, even trickster, pushing the tantrika (aspirant) across the barriers to enlightenment.

Dakini’s wrathful aspect is depicted by the mala of skulls. Her peaceful aspect is depicted by the lotus frond. Like Hindu goddess Kali, her role is to transmute suffering. Her left hand holds high the lamp of liberation. Dakini represent the sky being a womb symbol connoting emptiness, creativity, potentiality. They are objects of desire and also carriers of the cosmic energies that continually fertilize our human sphere. Dakinis bring us pleasure and spirituality. They provoke the enervating lust that brings life into being. They are poetic and cosmic souls, put here to tempt us to spirituality.

It is said that the Dakinis have the power to instantly entrap mere mortals with their gaze. The mirror of your mind is the mysterious home of the Dakini – your right brain – your feminine side. The secret Dakinis guard the deeper mysteries of the self. Representing upsurging inspiration and non-conceptual understanding, Dakinis invite you to cut free of all limitations. They are unconventional, unexpected, spontaneous, dancing in great bliss, at one with divine truth. In the eastern tradition, a cycle of 64 Dakinis/Yoginis represents a complete cosmogram for the transformation of the self, embodying the total energy cycle of creation as depicted by the dance of Gnosis, the wisdom and energy of the divine feminine. In representing this complete cycle we have the opportunity of evoking not only the Goddess, but of manifesting the totality of the Great Goddess herself.

Yogini/Dakini temples flourished in India around the 9th through the 12th centuries. Erected in remote places, especially on hilltops, the temples were circular enclosures open to the sky. Around the inner circumference were 64 niches which housed exquisite stone carvings representing various aspects of the Goddess energy, creating a circular mandala around a central image of Shiva, symbol of Cosmic Consciousness and the one-pointedness of yogic discipline.
