Oh sacred woman, why do you look outside yourself for validation and satisfaction?
Oh sacred woman, acknowledge yourself and turn your attention to the true contentment that is always available in the silent contemplation of your soul.
Oh embodiment of Goddess, why do you want others to give you what dwells within?
Oh embodiment of Goddess, attach yourself to your own heart and always relate to yourself with love.
Oh divine woman, why do you beg for what is already yours?
Oh divine woman, simply claim your birthright to share abundance by honoring the Earth Mother and connecting with the natural forces that spontaneously give to those who are available to receive.

inspires her man
gives her beauty of womanhood that captivates a man so much
Below are some ideas for raising feminine energy, taken from Vedas and adopted to the modern world.
Woman’s dissatisfaction and unhappiness come from misunderstanding of her nature as a woman. Understanding her nature and design helps a woman to love and respect herself and become an agent of change through internal transformation. Woman’s job is to live her life and act as a woman.
“The first principle required for a woman to understand herself is that she must accept very firmly that she is a woman and she is now. …When you write it, you should write it like this I AM A WOMAN. Do you know what that means? You are one of a kind.” -Yogi Bhajan

When I started practicing Kundalini Yoga, I began growing my hair. I don’t remember making a special decision about it, but remember that it felt natural and right for the moment. So I just let my hair be and stopped cutting it every month. And as somebody, who always had short haircuts before, and who has long hair now, I must say to all women: your beauty is in your hair. It is your crowning glory as a woman.
Aside from the beauty aspect, kundalini yogis consider long hair a gift of Nature and pay special attention to it. Uncut hair works as a subtle antenna for the body maintaining it’s electromagnetic health. In fact, the hair is so important that the ancient word for consciousness kundalini derives from the word kundal which means “a coil of the beloved’s hair.”
