The word frightening - something that causes fright, or fear.
Fear of facing our darkest, deepest and most ignored demons or traumas?
Fear of what gets stirred to the surface?
Fear of the changes that result when we embody that which brings those very fears to the surface?
Ferocious and Frightening! The no-nonsense compassion to shake us up, wake us up and blazing with enlightened wisdom proclaim "Stop your BS, your avoidance, your excuses...and look directly at what is arising!"
Ferocious! Intense energy there... Ready to take on and face down, to stand on the threshold and look directly into the abyss. Even the strongest feelings of anger and rage evaporate as you stare it down with the compassionate, wise, alluring, courageous, wild, frightening and ferocious gaze [as] Dakini!
