Goddess Akhilanda aka the Phoenix

‘Akhilanda represents the essence of the Phoenix; she’s the indestructible energy that embraces change. Her full name is Akhilandaishvari. Ishvari in Sanskrit means female power or goddess and Akhilanda means never not broken, so she is the goddess of never not broken. She can never be broken, because she always is. She is the embodiment of what we try to avoid–the dissolution of our ego’s identity. She radiates the potent light and joy that’s the goal of change, transformation, or pain. There is very little written about her; she is meant to be known through experience. She is an intimate, interior goddess that we meet when we are in the darkest moments of grief and heartbreak. She shows us where our energy is trapped; where we have been stifled in routines or other’s expectations of us. And she whispers the liberation we will experience once we let ourselves break open, and allow the new expression of our self to come blazing through. She reminds us that we always have the power to choose to see every event as yet another opportunity to become more light, to become more of the radiant soul we are here to be.

When your soul selects her card:

Many of us exert tremendous energy in the effort to not break or fall apart. We resist our grief. Our heartbreak. Or we deny the need to change until the choice no longer feels like it’s ours. Something side swipes us from our ordinary life and shatters who we think we are and how we identify ourselves. Here’s what Akhilanda reminds us: vulnerability is our greatest strength. If we are always broken, we can never break. Akhilanda is the most intimate, and personally powerful goddess because she meets us in those moments when we can feel most alone, most exposed, and most afraid. She models how to thrive in the midst of change; she uses pain to joyfully and purposefully transform. She sees everything as an opportunity to release what isn’t serving her. And she knows that being broken isn’t a failure, or something we should avoid, it’s actually the whole point. We are here to let our ideas of ourselves go up in flames, so that beneath the ashes, the soft core of who we truly are arises. And so that we remember that it’s not the heart that ever breaks; it’s the ego. The heart only ever expands. ‘

I have joined with many parents affected with the surreal , yet accepted issue of child abuse via Pathogenic Parenting / Domestic abuse. As a survivor of Domestic Abuse, denial abounded that 3 sons were not affected. In my desire to be family to those who have found me lacking . As a survivor of psychiatric abuse, therapist who abused also and toxic prescribed medications took me to hell on earth with few moments of heaven. I will share my life, my experiences and my studies and research.. I will talk to small circles and I will council ; as targeted parents , grandparents , aunts , uncles etc. , are denied contact with a child for reasons that serve the abuser ...further abusing the child. I grasp the trauma and I have looked at the lost connection to a higher power.. I grasp when one is accustomed to privilege, equality can feel like discrimination.. Shame and affluence silences a lot of facts , truths that have been labeled "negative". It is about liberation of the soul from projections of a alienator , and abuser ..
