Parashakti is more commonly written when the concept is being personified as the Divine Mother in Hinduism. In this way, Parashakti is not only the energy, but the force of creation and the highest source of all existence.
It is said that on the earthly plane, all forms of shakti are most tangibly manifested through females, creativity and fertility. Males also possess shakti in a potential and unmanifest form. According to Hindu philosophy, shakti is responsible for all creation and change in existence, and parashakti is the initiating and highest force for these processes.
