Keys began her op-ed by revealing she began her ‘consistent spiritual practice’ six years ago after giving birth to Genesis.

She added she was ‘exhausted’ but in more than a physical sense, adding, ‘my spirit was shot.’

‘I needed to do something so I could continue to be a good mother to my children, partner to my husband, and friend to myself,’ she said.

Keys added that her friend Erika suggested, ‘a Kundalini yoga and meditation retreat,’ explaining that, ‘kundalini energy rests in the base of your spine, and this practice would help creative, healing Divine Feminine energy rise through my body.’

‘I have to be honest: The first time I tried the meditation, I was so tired that I fell asleep. But the second time, I felt a little spark,’ she continued.

The 15-time Grammy Award winner added she liked the, ‘mixture of chanting, singing and movement’ and she ‘discovered a sense of peace and comfort.’

She added that she could finally ‘hear’ herself and trust her instincts so she wouldn’t feel so insecure.

Once she started meditating, she realized she had, ‘become a better mother’ because she was, ‘more confident in myself.’

‘I could hear what I needed and what my family needed. Same with my relationships with my husband, my mother and definitely my work. Now I could be crystal clear, powerful and strong and not back down because I had a way to access my own intuition. I had made a genuine connection with the Divine Feminine,’ she said.

She added that the goal of meditation is to find a balance between the masculine and feminine energies within both males and females.

‘Because the patriarchy has positioned itself into having so much power, destroying rather than creating, we’ve lost touch with the potency of the Divine Feminine,’ she added.

She added that her and Chopra realized that everyone needed ‘healing vibes’ lately, coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic, which is why they put together The Path to Wholeness 21-day meditation experience.

‘As we climb out of the pandemic, we can use self-care and self-love to balance out the loss and brokenness around us. This is a time to create new rituals and make them a part of our daily lives,’ she added.

‘As we work together to repair economic and social injustice, we also have to take care of our souls…and the Divine Feminine is ready for us! So I encourage everyone to try our 21-Day Meditation Experience: Activating the Divine Feminine – The Path to Wholeness and make the connection between body, mind and spirit,’ she added. 

‘I hope this experience will help us be our best, brightest selves, live healthier and more joyful lives, and find a piece of peace in a broken world,’ she concluded.
