Kali Moon

Our opportunity to allow the darkness to absorb from us the ‘stuff’ that we dont need any longer. 

This ‘releasing’ kind of energy will be something that will come up regularly as we go through the 40 days, however she is particularly useful as we create the space for our intentions for this sadhana and the new year to come.

In that annoyingly accurate saying ‘old ways won’t open new doors’ here are a few exercises for you to recognise particular habits, thought processes, beliefs, attitudes and tensions are no longer needed in your body, mind and psyche.

Stream of consciousness journaling is an extremely helpful practice for bringing unconscious patterning in to the light and will be a wonderful tool in clearing the mind to allow for higher intelligence to come through in your meditation practices.


Find yourself a place that can be your sadhana space over the next 40 days. It may just be a spot on the floor, a small alter you make for yourself or your favourite peaceful place. It may take a few days to let the spot become ‘home’ but for today make it a place where you can grab some paper or a journal and write.

OM Kali Ma

Sit and call in that fierce truthful part of yourself that is able to cut through your own BS. You can do it silently or chant under your breath - whatever works!

The repetition of the mantra will bring that strong energy in you that can dissolve ego and look for truth.

Give yourself a few moments to sit quietly, then when you feel ready, time yourself for 4 minutes to write nonstop on this topic:

What are my three biggest challenges in life right now

Then stop, draw a line and set the timer for another 3 minutes to write on this topic:

WHAT are three things that hold me back

Then stop, draw a line and set the timer for another 3 minutes to write on this topic:


Then stop, sit tall close your eyes and visualise those things being taken from you.

Imagine the pull of gravity and the hands of Kali pulling these things away from you, watching the feeling of lightness and clarity that fills the space she leaves.

Sit and breathe for as long as you can with that feeling.

You may like to follow it with some movement, a walk or something that allows you to enjoy the space you’ve cleared and start to let your awareness move to what may be possible when you aren’t run by the things you just released.
