Goddess Spotlight: Goddess Kali Ma – Goddess of Liberation
Maha Kali -Ma
By Khepra ~ el
Goddess Kali Ma is one of the most known and yet misunderstood of the goddesses. She is thought to be a feminine energy that serves a darker purpose but it is a thought furthest from the truth. The images of her do lead up to this misunderstanding and will have you shudder. Her depictions are a far cry from the “pretty” we are used to looking at in a Goddess but the beauty of her lies in her Love which defines something far greater. If you have not seen any of them, trust me enough, if you will, to read this first and then investigate further later.
In being 100% honest, I too once had a very skewed view of Kali Ma just like many others here in the western culture. I literally avoided her like the plague and whenever I heard of someone working with her energy it caused a pause and a thought of “but why”. That is until she showed herself and helped me to understand that I was dealing with a level of fear that needed to be released. I had to understand her beyond her pictures as they do not truly represent who she is. Through her guidance and soft whispers, I found an even deeper understanding of her essence.
Kali is a primordial Mother Goddess. She is a protector and a bit of a warrior in spirit but not so much in her presence. There are trillions of mothers of past and present that completely inner-stand this protect-at-all-means but I-still-love-you presence. Her warrior spirit is based in a pure infinite Love to liberate those who need it most in whatever variable form they need it.
When she entered into my cypher, it was during a time that I was dealing with F.E.A.R. I had started facing some hard hitting issues and had just completed a YouTube video of a deep and compelling channeled message on the topic…. Wait….Just now as I write this in retrospect, I realize that it could have very well been her. Hmmmmm! Better Yet and with confidence I will say that it was definitely her. I now know that it was indeed her energy that had come to deliver that compelling message. Check it out on the Youtube channel here.
This journey with her persisted for weeks. She showed me what my fears were, how they were disabling me and more importantly She pushed me to overcome them. The alignment that has taken place since has helped me to take on the task of releasing things that was restricting my growth. Through it all, I am so very thankful and full of gratitude for her presence and her assistance. Her lessons freed me enough to help me step into another level of destiny and has helped others free themselves as well. I feel the difference within me and the empowerment energy she brings continues to surge on.
A general understanding of Goddess Kali
Wanderling.com confirmed my new awareness of her through their very well written and poetic styled article::
“Mother Kali is known as Kali-Ma, the Black Goddess. She takes away the darkness from every individual who strives in the path of perfection by performing the spiritual disciplines of purifying austerities. She is Nature stripped of ‘clothes’. It symbolizes that she is completely beyond name and form, completely beyond the illusory effects of maya (false consciousness). Her nudity is said to represent totally illumined consciousness, unaffected by maya. Kali is the bright fire of truth, which cannot be hidden by the clothes of ignorance. Her disheveled hair forms a curtain of illusion, the fabric of space and time which organizes matter out of the chaotic sea of quantum-foam. Her garland of fifty human heads, each representing one of the fifty letters of the Sanskrit alphabet, symbolizes the repository of knowledge and wisdom while the heads themselves represent impure thoughts, which She has severed from the personalities of Her devotees. She cuts down all the conflicting concepts which debate their various ideologies within the arena of mind, silences the tumultuous roar of mental conflict and the anguish of egotistical attachment, takes the physical manifestations to Herself, and makes a garland of perplexity. Thus, She wears all karma as an ornament, while She stops the chattering voices of the active mind, so that Her devotees can experience the purity of inner peace in the absorption of solitude. With Kali’s Love we become unattached, free from reaction, the silent witness of the stimulus and response which action and interaction brings. We cease to react emotionally to the circumstances of life, and rather plan our actions for the optimum efficiency; so that all the sooner we can complete our necessary contributions to creation according to our karmas, and spend the balance of our time delighting in Universal Consciousness. This is the path that Kali shows.”

What I have Gratefully learned
It may all seem very intense to read and, well, it is, without a doubt. I have come to understand and respect that as there are seasons for all things to exist, they have a place and we must respect even if we do not understand their existence initially. This includes any essence of being associated to the season or the experience.
At this very point in our human evolution, Kali-Ma is screaming out for us to cut away the inner demons, heavy energies, the burdening egos and the bulging baggage of our past. She desires us to be more than what we currently represent and to do and be this UNAPOLOGETICALLY.
There is a calling that is on all of our futures and our human evolution depends on how lightweight we allow ourselves to be in order to fulfill the missions necessary. This task expects us to empty ourselves of emotional turmoils, mental misconceptions, constricting characteristics and paralyzing past experiences that we have found ourselves anchored in. This is required of us so we can elevate our vibrations and our souls.
G0ddess Kali Ma has cut away insecurities and loosened the chains of hurt that I have carried for far to long. My mind is much much more clearer. I am less tense about certain issues and less connected to emotional experiences. She has given me new eyes to see with and wisdom to walk with on my journey.
This goddess is certainly one that you connect with and level up with more and more each time but you must be serious about your journey because her work is not lite work. You must do the heavy duty clean up work required after releasing what she cuts away. As for me and my experience, this liberation has been gratifying and humbling and I am grateful for it in every infinite way..
