Working with Kali?
« on: August 04, 2011, 02:02:14 pm »
I checked to see if there were any posts in this section regarding Kali but there don't seem to be any, apologies if this is in the wrong section or anything.

Recently I've felt an extremely strong calling from Kali, I this is really the first time I've felt that particularly strong sense of being thwapped by somebody. I've always found her to be extremely interesting, I love her story and background and the more I've researched her the more I've felt a calling towards her. This has been particularly strong in the past few weeks or so, a few nights ago I had a dream which I later realised seemed to be about her (she made me jump!) and her telling me she was there and wants my attention.

The thing is, I have to be completely honest, she makes me nervous. I know she has many lessons to teach, some of which I feel I really need to learn right now. However I feel a little wary of working with her, I've read accounts of working with her that seem extremely intense and I'm worried that I might not be able to handle her teaching. Still, she will not be ignored and I really don't think she is going to take her gaze off me right now. Today I purchased a few things with an altar to her in mind but I feel that once I make a proper altar I will be stepping over the starting line so to speak, I want to be prepared for her.

I'd like to ask if any of you have experiences working with Kali, or even your feelings about her, your interpretations of her... anything really.

I have been working with Kali-Ma for years now.  Here is my advice:

She has pickedd you, there is nothing to be nervous about.  She is a mother in every way.  A tough, strict mum, but still a mum.

She will teach you how to be you, and help you overcome any obstacle.  But she doesn't do all the work: it's you, with her smiling behind you.

I have neverr been happier than when working with her.  She has her rewards, all through strength.

Thank you so much for your answer, I'm so glad to hear that you're happy working with her.
I think that's exactly what I need right now, I need to learn how to be myself unapologetically and stop relying on what others think of me (and worrying about it unnecessarily!). I get the sense from her that I need a bit more of a backbone, not in an unkind way, and to stand up for myself and who I am without worrying if it will offend or annoy someone. I definitely see that as being true about myself.

That might be precisely why she is willing to work with you.  Funny how that happens.  My first experience with Set was very similar to what you described, as were my concerns about working with him.

It is interesting how it seems to happen that way, I think the nerves are understandable but you have to just take a leap of faith and trust in them. For me I think even the act of deciding to trust in her is part of the lesson I need to learn, I think I'm going to learn a lot from her.
