Kali – The Mother, destroyer and liberator!

When a child is in the womb of the mother, he cannot see his mother, he can only hear her, through sound, likewise, the mother cannot see her child, or hear him, and she too knows, he is there. An awareness of the invisible, where great love is created. Both of the mother and child know of the other, though blind! Love knows no boundaries, no limitations and no walls, love is the creator, nurturer and liberator. 

Kali is the Hindu goddess (or Devi) of death, time, and doomsday and is often associated with sexuality and violence but is also considered a strong mother-figure and symbolic of motherly-love. Kali also embodies shakti – feminine energy, creativity and fertility – and is an incarnation of Parvati, wife of the great Hindu god Shiva. She is most often represented in art as a fearful fighting figure with a necklace of heads, skirt of arms, lolling tongue, and brandishing a knife dripping with blood.

Over time, she has been worshipped by devotional movements and tantric sects variously as the Divine Mother, Mother of the Universe. Kali is the goddess of liberation. Her energy is to liberate, and although she wears a garland of skull heads, these skull heads are said to be from demons that she has slayed.

In revenge or In love, woman is more barbaric than man!

The loving mother who protects her children and whose fierceness guards them. She is outwardly frightening – with dark skin, pointed teeth, and a necklace of skulls – but inwardly beautiful.

Legend says she ate all the demons, stringing their heads on a chain which she wore around her neck. It seemed impossible to calm Kali’s bloody attacks, which now extended to anyone who did her wrong, and both people and gods were at a loss what to do. Fortunately, the mighty Shiva stopped Kali’s destructive rampage by lying down in her path, and when the goddess realised just who she was standing on, she finally calmed down.

Kali is the mother who liberates, although her depiction is rudely demonized as someone to be feared, she is actually the goddess that destroys negativity and evil!

    1. I’m hearing a lot of people share how awful their mothers were too. I’m sorry your mother was like that. Sometimes, its best to move on from toxic people, even if they are family members?

      1. i wondered, in mom’s self-loving purity if i was the toxic one, it’s too late now anyway-she’s gone. and, Kelly, i wonder about me too- about moving on. what happens when you move on, and run so fast for so long? am i running in the right direction? you become a diamond fountain of love, so strong, and wonderful, and everybody comes and takes (love) from you. how do (I) stay nourished then? i feel like a fading star sometimes

      2. I understand what you’re saying, no I think your mom was toxic, from her own history, which had nothing to do with you, its just you received the effects of her repressed wounds. If your asking yourself if you were the toxic one clearly says you not. People who cant evaluate their own behaviours and emotions are usually the ones who are the most toxic energy.
        And I think your in the right direction, what’s most important is for you o think that too..
