I have been calling on Kali this week and thought it would be fun to write about her.
Kali is the goddess of death or destruction. She is called the black one as she is dark as night in colour and has a long tongue that is seen in most pictures sticking out of her mouth. If you look closely though you will see pure white teeth on the inside. She may be frightening to look at but the more you get to know this goddess you will find she is the opposite. She is also known as a strong mother figure and she only destroys what is needed in order for re-growth or rebirth.
I look at her as a goddess that helps to cultivate destruction of what we may personally need to let go of such as ego, fear or whatever that thing is that is standing in your way. Once we let go of the things that are holding us back, even if it is painful to do so, we can then move forward and past this place.
With her big sword in hand, Kali can help us slice through these things and make the space needed for something new and better serving.
