The most powerful statement you can make are the words I am. These simple words, spoken consciously, activate a truth. These words make a statement to the Universe of you owning your unique divine place within the oneness, and consciously claiming your place. This is tremendously powerful. It starts a wave of reaction throughout the Universe, activating your energetic signature wave outward. You begin to be aligned within the Universe through your cells with this energetic light wave as it creates an energetic opening. Each one of us has a unique place on the Universal grid within the Universal Consciousness. ~ Unknown
Ishta devata is the term in Hinduism for a worshipper’s personal preferred deity. Because Hindus may worship many gods and goddesses or their incarnations, they may choose one beloved deity as their focus for devotion.
In Vajrayana Buddhism, ishta devata is not a deity but an enlightened being with whom a person identifies during personal meditation. In this sense, it is often translated as “meditational deity.” It is also a key component of Deity yoga, in which the yogi imagines him/herself in the form of the Buddha.
Ishta devata comes from the Sanskrit, ishta, meaning “desired,” “cherished” or “preferred”; and devata, meaning “godhead” or “divinity.” It translates as “cherished divinity.”
The Liquid Rainbow is caused by a unique phenomena: a red plant – Macarenia clavigera – growing in the riverbed. Other colors come from black rocks, green algae, blue water and yellow sand, producing an iridescent effect. The river also features waterfalls, pools and caverns, making it even more dramatic.
