The Dark Goddess Mala is inspired by the Hindu deity Kali and aims to bring to its wearer:
“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.” ~ e.e. cummings
Kali, whose name comes from the word ‘time’ in Sanskrit, cleanses the old and make way for the new. She brings death of the ego and of the blinding self-centered view of reality. She empowers us to reach our full potential.
Kali is described as carrying a sword of knowledge with which she slices through delusions and frees us from any limitations. She has a necklace made out of heads which symbolizes the ego and a skirt made of human arms. Kali is often portrayed as black or dark blue in color. She has four arms. Her eyes are red, filled with rage. She has fangs and a split tongue.
Despite of her terrible form, Kali is often considered the kindest and is also seen as a great protector against evil and negative energy. Kali provides clarity and insight which help us to firmly make decisions, to let go of fantasy, and to move toward the truth.
“I let go of worries or emotions that drain me.”
Let go of worries and emotions which clog up your mind and fog your heart. Release all negative emotions and be open to love and goodness. Don’t allow the ego to get attached to negative thoughts or feelings.
“My heart is open and my mind is clear.”
Remind yourself to let go of any negativity. Let go of judgement. Open your heart and see the goodness in the world and you will free your mind to be clear and focused.
