WHAT IS THE SHAKTI?
WHAT DOES THE GURU GIVE ME?
Rasa Von Werder
January 28, 2006
The Shakti Kundalini is all things to all people. It is God, the
Spirit of God, the Holy Spirit, Divine Energy.
This Shakti has all the Power that is God's. Here are some of what it is:
* THE POWER OF GOD
* HEALING POWER
* EXORCIST POWER
* CLEANSING POWER (REMOVES ALL NEGATIVES INCLUDING DEPRESSION AND
* THE BLOOD OF GOD AND THE GURU
* MIND OR CONSCIOUSNESS OPENING, GIVER OF VISION
* PRESENCE OF GOD
* DIVINE LOVE
* IT IS EQUAL WITH GOD, THE THIRD PERSON OF THE HOLY TRINITY
WHAT DOES THE SHAKTI GIVE ME?
It gives all things, as indicated; mental, physical, and spiritual.
It gives life, health, healing, illumination and enlightenment, gifts
of vision, hope, confidence, faith, all that is good. It also brings
harmony, serenity, zeal, all virtues. There is no end to the good
Shakti brings, as there is no end to God and Goodness.
WHY DO I NEED A GURU TO GET THIS? WHY DO I NOT SIMPLY GET IT STRAIGHT
That is the million dollar question. Many people claim they can get
it straight from God, but they aren't getting it in sufficient
quantities to cause a transition. The normal progress of kundalini
shakti is slow, and takes many years of striving to receive huge
amounts of shakti. In order to go from one chakra to another - a
transition - one needs a 'kick' or 'power surge.' One needs help to
speed things up.
The best way I can describe it is this. Either you go out into the
world on your own, with no help, make a living and attempt to lead a
life of prosperity. You can do it but it is arduous and you might not
even make it. Having a guru like Rasa Von Werder is like having a
parent or relative who bequethes you a great deal of money. With this
money you then go out and start a business, and then prosperity is
more likely to happen.
Your guru gives you the Holy Kick or Power Surge of the Shakti Kundalini.
IS THE SHAKTI KUNDALINI RECEIVED FROM THE GURU PERSONAL OR IMPERSONAL?
IS IT THE EXACT SAME THING AS I GET DIRECTLY FROM GOD THROUGH MY OWN
RESOURCES, OR IS IT DIFFERENT?
Although God is God, and God is One thing, yet God also Many things.
The power you get from your individual guru has the personal signature
or stamp of the guru. What is that stamp? I call it the SPIRITUAL
DNA of the guru.
I got that idea from Jesus Christ, leaving us His Body and Blood.
What did He leave us and how does It affect us? He left us His
spiritual dna, and It affects us in a special way. Within this dna is
His Gifts, especially Sacrificial Love, Healing, Obedience and Zeal -
all the things Our Beloved Lord is noted for.
When I did my lifelong sadhana with Jesus Christ, I accomplished full
union with Him and received all the gifts He (and also His Blessed
Mother) have to offer. All the gifts that I am familiar with, which
Jesus and Mary give out, I have received. These are some of the gifts
I can now transmit to others.
There are other gifts I also received from Christian saints and from
Yoga saints - many of them, including the Bliss of Nirvana. (These
are written about on the site)
Each guru, saint or minister who has Holy Spirit Shakti to transmit,
has their own particular stamp of spiritual dna upon it. So when you
receive the shakti from Rasa, you also receive Rasa. Rasa and her
shakti are ONE. There is no difference between Rasa and the shakti
that lives in her body and that is transmitted. All shakti has
individual characteristics. It is not one bland, eternally the same
Divine Energy. What do I mean?
Shakti is like electricity or energy. Energy can be used for
factories, for home use, for surgery. It can turn into lazer beams.
It can become nuclear reactors for bombs or for peaceful power.
Energy which at one level can be impersonal and similar, can change
drastically according to how it is used.
The same energy is used to bring the born again experience and the
exorcism power, but the energy is used or changed into something
different. I cannot explain exactly how it is different, but I know
that it is. Nor can I point you to any particular scriptures in any
religion concerning this. These are things I have learned from
experience and know by spiritual instinct, having the Divine Kundalini
surging strongly through my veins.
One way to explain the difference is the way that the WILL OF GOD
dircts the energy. God channels the energy to heal a physical ailment,
to clean a filthy or injured soul, or to remove demons.
ARE ALL GURUS AND ENLIGHTENED SOULS THE SAME? DO THEY GIVE THE SAME
THING? DO ALL TRANSMIT SHAKTI?
All these have similarities, but all are different. Not all ministers
of God minister in the same way.
God touches people in thousands of ways, and the way in which a person
is touched is how they minister. St. Paul spoke about the variety of
gifts and the variety of ministry. Some teach, some evangelize, some
pray (contemplatives), some do spiritual works of mercy and others
physical works. Some heal, some bring enlightenment. All have
different sorts of gifts, and they work accordingly.
Generally, gurus and faith healers are the ones who transmit shakti.
It is a good question why they would be chosen to do this special kind
I do not know all the answers, but I do know that God gives to each
what is best suited for them. Some people need EXTRAORDINARY gifts
and powers to survive the crosses that God puts upon them. Mysterious
are the ways of God. One thing I do know, the bigger your crosses,
the more help God will give you. The more responsibillity or work you
are willing to undertake for God, the more God will give you to work
with. Faith healers and shakti givers are willing to take risks or
chances that other ministers are not willing to take. It is a
traumatic business when people find out you are transmitting God,
delivering shakti which brings healing and enlightenment! Such gifts
are valuable and demanding. People covet these 'Gifts of Power' (and
yes, this includes miracles.) There is much persecution. (The
greater the anointing, the greater the persecution, Paul said to
Timothy.) Persecution comes from misunderstanding and jealousy. Many
faith healers in Christianity were harrassed by other ministers who
coveted the anointing.
Being more familiar with Christian faith healers than I am with Hindu
shakti givers, I can say that these people went through much trauma.
They reached out to God more than did anyone else because their lives
were terrible. These gifts were not given to people who lived
cushiony, comfortable lives.
For those who want to come closer to God, receiving the power of the
guru is one of the greatest decisions they can make. The reason for
this is that if they do everything else, but have no guru, it will
take untold years to reach their goals. Having a good guru, the
process speeds up dramatically.
Is There an Obligation to Receiving Rasa's Shakti? Do I owe her
anything in any way?
There is no obligation whatever in receiving the Shakti of God through
Rasa. In the bible it says,
'Freely you have received, freely give.'
There is no price that can be put on Holy Spirit power, by any means.
In fact, Rasa wants to tell you,
'GOD HAS ALREADY PAID ME. YOU OWE ME NOTHING.'
It is true that many gurus teach that GIVING is necessary and a good
thing. Prasad, donations and the like, are not a bad thing to do.
God wants you to be charitable and grateful. However, do not let this
be a stumbling block. If you wish to give not one iota, it is
perfectly alright as far as I am concerned, as long as you follow God
the best you can. This is all I expect of you.
I believe that the most important thing is to receive the shakti, and
It will guide you. It will take you where you have to go. It will
teach you, illuminate you, inspire you, to all good things. You
cannot be coherced into charity, it has to be voluntary. I would like
to see the Shakti teach you and change you from within, and take you
to where you need to go.
You can receive this Shakti simply by installing Rasa into your heart.
The instructions are on the devotee page. Many people have done this
and miracles are happening!
