Yogini Wisdom

The Goddess Kali represents the cycles of time, of death and rebirth. When you experience loss, it is Kali cleaning the house, clearing out what is ready to let go in your life. It’s not pleasant when she is around. It can feel painful and scary. A lot of the time, she drags us, kicking and resisting, attached to our plan of how things should be. But as time goes by, many of us can recognize her blessing. We can see that, yes, it was necessary, so that something important could grow from the ashes. Humbly, we bow and whisper, “thank you, Kali Ma, thank you so much for not having it my way.”
