How does Kali show up in your life?
Goddess Kali holds the fiery power of transformation. She’s the one that shows up in your darkest times to show you the light. In the words of Leonard Cohen “There’s a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in”; Kali is the one who cracks us open. She shows up as chaos, destruction and despair and she is the rawest of our emotions. Most of us fear Kali’s presence. Indian artistic renderings depict her as a fiercely hideous warrioress, wielding laser sharp swords and holding severed heads as fresh blood drips from her lips. Despite her appearance she is the force that we need to push and pull us through the darkness and into the light. She is both our saviour and our teacher in those painful situations and she cuts through the bullshit to throw us on our right and true path. Her stories are on the battlefields as she triumphs over evil and leads us to authenticity. In her epic battle of the blood seed demon, Raktabija, she is the one who outsmarts and conquers the ever multiplying demon seeds by licking up every last drop of blood with her snake like tongue. In this way she frees us from the seeds of our negative thoughts and repetitive stories, and she liberates us from the prison of our mind. She is the triumph of the true self over ego. Call on Kali for radical transformation, to move through fear, and leave behind old patterns and embrace the new. Know that when Kali shows up in your life that it’s a time of genuine change, a complete cosmic overhaul, renewed energy and redirection on the right track.
